Mundane wealth is transitory, but service to God lasts as long as the soul exists. Materialistic wealth leads to sorrows and fear of its protection. But the wealth of service towards God always gives bliss.

How foolish it would be, if man thinks of pursuing his work only under the light that flashes during a thunderstorm. Many people worship God only in the later stages of life; or when they face difficulties in life. Many postpones the journey to spiritual world? Spiritual life is taken up only after retirement.

Just like how a spear is used to subjugate an intoxicated elephant, With the spears of knowledge, devotion and detachment, one should subjugate the mind and put it on the path of dharma.
