Use riches in a constructive way ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Use riches in a constructive way ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche  

 It is said that, "the richer people get, the more miserly they are," and this saying is often true. Avarice makes you unhappy. It exposes you to rebirth in the florin of tortured spirits. Rather than store useless riches, use them in a constructive way. Be generous toward those in need, build stupas, and make offerings to the Three Jewels. The more generous you are, the more you will prosper. Generosity should always be exercised impartially toward all - the poor, the sick, the aged, the traveler from afar - without discrimination between friend and stranger, between those on whom we count and those from whom we can expect nothing. In giving, be free of ostentation, of favoritism, and of any expectation of reward  – Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche  from the book "The Hundred Verses of Advice: Tibetan Buddhist Teachings on What Matters Most" ISBN: 978-1590303412  -  Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche on the web:  Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche biography:
