Discussion -10. "Where  is  the  wealth" ( kasya  svit  dhanam ) ...


All  wealth  belongs  to  Him   ( Lord )  alone   ---   the  Infinite  alone  is  the  Reality.

It  is  the  core  in  all  forms;  it  pervades  everything  within.

And  it  envelopes   everything.

The  world  is  like  an  iceberg  floating  on  water.

Water,  frozen  and  floating  on  water  ---  it  is  nothing  but  water.

Since  everything  is  His  (  Lord's ),  whatever  that  is  permitted  by  Him,  take  it  as  His,  and  live  in  this  attitude  of  dedication  and  gratituse  which  id  the  way  to  true  enjoyment.



'Tena' can  also  mean  ' therefore'.

The  entire  world  of  multiplicity  is  'vasyam' by  the  Lord.

He  is  within  and  out.

'Therefore,'  through  detachment  from  all  plurality  come  to  experience  the  Supreme  Harmony  of  the  One  Truth  that  pervades  all,  that  indwells  in  all,  that  clothes  all.

Thus,  through  renunciation  of  attachment,  ego,  desire,  misconceptions  and
sensuous  values,  enjoy  what  is  given  by  Him,  consideribg  all  as  His;  never
covet (  vulture  like  greed  ) ( ma  grdhah )  others  wealth  (  do  not  steal  / grab
by cheating, or by  force  or  by  threatening   or  by  any  other  low  means)

To  covet  is  "TO  DESIRE  TO  POSSESS  MORE  AND  MORE,  HOARD,  TO  COLLECT  AND  TO  AGGRANDISE."

Note : the  above  discussion  is  about  terms  used  at  the  end  of  Mantram.
