Earning Lakshmi Not Just Money

wealthymatters Lakshmi is wealth accumulated through honest and fair means. Money can be stolen as well. Lakshmi brings peace and happiness to the person who earns it. Stolen money only brings emptiness to the soul. If you notice Lakshmi’s idol, she has gold coins around her, signifying wealth. However, she is also seated on a lotus flower, and holds lotuses in her hands. The lotus is a sign of purity and peace, signifying spiritual well-being; of purity and beauty even in the muddy waters of the world. Without this peace, wealth has no meaning. – Chetan Bhagat

Often mis-attributed to Abraham Lincoln,the following ten cannots were put forth by  Rev. Boetcker. They had a profound effect on Margaret Thatcher.She is supposed to have carried a news-paper clipping of these 10 cannots in her now famous handbag.

  2. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
  3. You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.
  4. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
  5. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
  6. You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
  7. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
  8. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
  9. You cannot build character and courage by destroying men’s initiative and independence.

Kuber Mudra

wealthymatters,comMudra means gesture. Kuber Mudra is believed to help achieve one’s goals in general and wealth in particular.Hence it is named after Kuber, the Treasurer of the Gods.

To form this mudra the tips of your thumb, index, and middle fingers are joined. And the ring finger and pinky are folded into the palm as shown in the picture to the left.

After folding the  figures of both your hands into Kuber Mudras,you are supposed to focus with your full intensity on what you want and think of as if you have already got it. This Mudra is supposed to help channel your energy and motivation towards what you want.

In case of this Mudra, its less important how long you do it for as compared to how much intensity you do it with.Doing it for 15 minutes each morning,while focusing on what you want done during the day is supposed to generate the desired results. Sangeeta,a wealthymatters reader,swears by its efficacy for her.

In this mudra the thumb,index and middle figure come into play.The thumb is associated with Mars,the index finger with Jupiter and the middle finger with Saturn.Mars is associated with forcefulness,Jupiter with resplendence and Saturn with fixation on the essential.So by bringing together these forces a person achieves goals and becomes wealthy.

The Richest Man In Babylon


‘The Richest Man In Babylon’  is a book by George Samuel Clason,first published in 1926, which teaches simple lessons in financial wisdom through a collection of parables set in ancient Babylon.

The book is well deserving of its status as a personal finance classic and is an extremely easy read both for adults and children.The parables have the power to make an indelible impression on the mind and teach lessons for life.I feel the book should join all the childhood classics such as Cinderella,Sleeping Beauty,Snow White, Aesop’s fables et al. After all it is so much easier and fun to learn financial wisdom from parables than through bitter experience.

Copies of the book can be bought online and in book stores easily and they make excellent gifts.It is also an excellent title for your personal library.Alsoyou can get free copies legally as it is off copyright.Here is the link to a free copy.

The following are my favourite excerpts from the book:

“…a man’s wealth is not in the purse he carries. A fat purse quickly empties if there be no golden stream to refill it. Arkad has an income that constantly keeps his purse full, no matter how liberally he spends.”

“Thou makest me to realize the reason why we have never found any measure of wealth. We never sought it. Thou hast labored patiently to build the staunchest chariots in Babylon. To that purpose was devoted your best endeavors. Therefore, at it thou didst succeed. I strove to become a skillful lyre player. And, at it I did succeed.” Read more of this post

Symbolism Of The Kuthu Vilakku


Kuthu Vilakku

The ubiquitous five-nozzle kuthu vilakku which you will see at all festivals,celebrations and auspicious occasions has been in use from the days of the Cholas or perhaps even earlier.

The five petals or nozzles  represent the five elements of Nature — earth, water, fire, air and sky or space. The five nozzles also denote the five main elements needed for a successful life — health, wealth, learning, courage and longevity.Remind yourself of this each time you see a kuthu vilakku.
