Chanakya says that if a person wants to become rich, he should keep certain things in mind. If you don’t take care of these things, even a rich person can become poor.
Acharya Chanakya has the status of a great statesman, diplomat and economist and his name comes in the line of historical intellectuals. Chanakya made Chandragupta Maurya the emperor of India based on his policies. He also made certain policies for the happy life of man and to remove miseries. By adopting these policies one can reach the pinnacle of success. In one such policy he said that if a person wants to become rich, he should keep certain things in mind. If these things are not taken care of, even a rich person can become poor. Let’s know what Chanakya said.
1. Don’t apply sandalwood like this:
As Acharya Chanakya said in his Niti, we should not grind sandalwood with a grinding stone to apply sandalwood to God during worship. Grind sandalwood for God should always be kept separately and the same sandalwood should not be applied to our Body. Lord Indra told if sandalwood is applied to a stone, his wealth will also be destroyed. Therefore, sandalwood should be anointed to God daily.
2. Life expectancy of such people decreases:
Chanakya has said that even if you forget, do not enmity with those who are more powerful than you. By doing this, one has to face many problems in life which also shortens the lifespan. Also, Lakshmi would never stay with such people. A wise man never gains enmity with a powerful man but defeats that man by making him a friend. A person who is able to do this is called wise and his wealth also increases.
3. It Increases Wealth:
A rich person should always be serious and should not forget to keep more money safe. The work of money should always be done for the welfare of the people, it will increase their wealth and prestige. The money of those who hold money never stays with them and gradually it is destroyed. Money should be used for good works, so that wealth increases.
4. Lakshmi leaves such:
Chanakya concludes by saying that Lakshmi does not stay long with one who abandons the path of Dharma and indulges in adharma. Understand that when a person who follows the path of dharma starts getting more money, the time of Lakshmi’s departure from that person will come just as soon and his end will not be good either. Therefore, if a person is not conscious at this time, his wealth is sure to be destroyed.
According to Chanakya, if a person possesses the above qualities, no matter how rich he is, he will become poor in an instant. Those who want wealth and money in life should adopt the above practice.
