When you are spiritual you see that money has it's use, but it causes insecurity and greed as well. That way, it becomes an obstacle in the spiritual progress of man. If this aspect of money is well understood, it will create no problem. If you have money, you can help the needy, that is also one aspect of spirituality.

Yes, spirituality and richness can go together in tandem.If i am a owner of a company i may get job done thru my subordinate officers and earn profits and at the same time i may keep my spirituality intact by employing the best practices in the company and maintaining the best possible social obligations.

When I am spiritual, I have peace. When I earn good money, I am comfortable. Both are necessary in life.

Sometimes I think is there anything wrong with mixing spirituality and money? After lots of looking at this issue from various angles, I must say that the answer has to be no. Money is just money. It is a medium of exchange, a way for you and me to exchange our labors for what we need. It keeps me from having to grow wheat, pump oil and raise cattle just to eat and drive a car. Simple, effective system. So why all the fuss? Well, for centuries, various churches and spiritual systems have given money a bad rap. The image of the poor priest and the Buddhist monk come to mind. Moreover, we all know a number of people with some serious money hang-ups, both in terms of poverty and in terms of greed. The image of Ebenezer Scrooge is one we all know. Or Donald Trump. Or a whole host of wealthy people we could name. It seems to me that all of this distaste for money by spirituality probably has more to do with our attachment to money and wealth than anything else. Theres that word attach ...more
