God created money or wealth, which is the most wonderful item in this entire creation


God created money or wealth, which is the most wonderful item in this entire creation because all the worldly bonds are condensed in it. It is the essence of all the bonds in this world. Directly, it has no importance, but, indirectly it has highest importance since it covers all the needs of your life of yourself and your kith and kin. You can purchase even the food by which you can maintain the life. Therefore, it is the basis of all the basic needs and other needs of life. In a nutshell, it can be said as the essence of the entire creation. It is said to be the root of the entire tree of world (Dhanamoola midam jagat). If the root is cut, the entire tree will fall. The tree indicates the world and its branches indicate various bonds of the world. The main stem indicates your bond with your body and your life.

Thus, it is the most wonderful item of the creation of God in which the entire creation is condensed. Shri Chakra means the whirlpool of money in which the entire world revolves. Shri Yantra means the money, which controls the entire world. Without realizing this real significance, ignorant people worship blindly the metallic plates on which the Shri Chakra or Shri Yantra is drawn. If the concept is not realized, everything is blind deep darkness only. Even if the significance is realized, people reject it because they do not like the inconvenience of the concept. Therefore, the Veda says that the sacrifice of money or wealth alone is sufficient for the complete salvation (Dhanena tyagenaikena...). Salvation means liberation from worldly bonds.

Saktuprastha sacrificed the little food obtained in drought after long starvation for several days. That little food was equal to the infinite gold mountain for him and his family members in that situation. The family members including himself would die if that little food was not eaten. In such situation, the Lord came as a beggar and Saktuprastha sacrificed the entire food. That little food was treasure of infinite wealth for him and his family members at that time. The food was earned by him with lot of effort and work, which was the process of begging. Therefore, that food was the fruit of his work and the sacrifice of that food was the sacrifice of the fruit of his entire work (Sarvakarmaphalatyagam... Gita).

By the sacrifice of that infinite treasure of wealth, he proved that he is beyond the bonds of family and also beyond the bond to himself. If that food were sacrificed, not only his family members but he also would die. The bond with himself (atmeshana), the bond with his life (praneshana), the bond with his body (deheshana), the bond with his wife (dareshana), the bond with his children (putreshana) are condensed in that food or wealth. Therefore, if the bond with money is entirely cut, all the bonds with the world including yourself, are automatically cut. If the root is cut, the falling tree is cut. Each bond need not be tested separately. The one bond with the money is sufficient for the test. If money is sacrificed partially, the bonds are partially cut. If the money is sacrificed completely, all the bonds are completely cut, which is the total salvation.

Lord Krishna started testing Gopikas in His childhood itself by stealing their wealth, which was milk, curd and butter only. By selling these items, their livelihood was earned. It is the fruit of their hard work (karma phala) because they do hard work in tending to the cows. The butter is the essence of their wealth. They do not have other forms of currency as we have today. All their currency was only milk, curd and butter, which were stored in the pots. Those pots were their banks. The Lord straightly attacked their wealth, which was their basic livelihood. Most of the Gopikas were angry with the Lord. Their anger was reinforced because the Lord had sufficient milk, curd and butter in His house. You can tolerate if a poor man steals in your house. But, if a person richer than yourself by many times steals in your house, your anger will touch the climax. Only a few Gopikas were happy about the theft of the Lord in their houses. Only such Gopikas passed the test and were blessed by the Lord. They loved the Lord more than their lives and hence, they were not angry when their livelihood was stolen. In fact, this point was proved further by their jump into fire on hearing the end of the Lord.

The bond with money and wealth is responsible for your success in not only the spiritual path (nivrutti), but also in your worldly path (pravrutti). Your desire for money beyond the needs of yourself and your family members is responsible for the entire sin that leads to hell. Today, the society is facing chaos due to this unnecessary extra desire for wealth only. The balance of the society is disturbed only by this reason. Even the rulers of the government are running after the unnecessary accumulation of wealth only. These people do not fear for sin and hell at all. Therefore, if your bond with wealth is under control, which means that your desire for wealth is limited to the basic needs of yourself and your family members only, you are successful in pravrutti and you will be rewarded with the trip to heaven for sometime. If your desire for wealth is completely destroyed as in the case of Saktuprastha, you will be successful in nivrutti. Therefore, for both pravrutti and nivrutti, wealth is an important item and this is signified by the importance of Shri Chakra.
