Namaskar Dear Perdy,

At the least you are most honest about your anticipation of wealth and other feelings. From what I read in today's newsletter it appears this is a balanced path of life.

Propserity is part of life. If your child loves you that is prosperity too. We could refuse all love, knowledge, and wealth. But it seems foolish. Why should you wish to be poor? Why should you wish to be sad? There are many mantras for for abundance in wealth, strength and wisdom.

MAHAA-LAXMYA-ASHTAK-STOTRAM is one such example. I have no idea what Paulji will come up with in his book, but I will send Aura a money order for his new book and the Intro to Yoga therapy course. One question to you is money pure evil or is it the wealthy who are? 80% of charitable contributions are from the wealthy. Money can help the starving to be fed and it can put a roof over your head.

Please tell me how you came to the realization that money is evil. You know enough about yoga to seek the pure truth. My perception is money is energy. It is worth nothing if we don't use it correctly. But it can feed and clothe millions.

On Shanti,

PS: Below is the complete "MAHAA-LAXMYA-ASHTAK-STOTRAM"
