“If I’m poor I’m happy, because I have no wealth to protect and I know that all feuds and animosity sprout from the seeds or greed and attachment. If I’m rich I’m happy because with my wealth I can do more positive actions, and both temporarily unlimited happiness are the results of meritorious deeds. Therefore, whatever happens, I shall be happy. This is the practice of Bodhisattvas”
