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."
