Question: What is the proper attitude towards money and possessions for householders?

Sri Chinmoy: The householders must take money as material power, which has to utilised divinely. Money-power is not to be used to lord it over others, but to meet with the necessities of life. This power has to be used judiciously, devotedly and in a fulfilling manner. Money has considerable power, but whether it is good or bad depends on the individual. The individual can use it divinely or undivinely. When money-power is used properly, it is a divine boon. If it is misused, it is a veritable curse.
