• Artha means wealth and householder requires wealth in order to perform many duties to uphold Dharma and take care of the needs of his family and society. Wealth is not and impediment to self-realization, but attachment to wealth is. Desire for wealth is different from Greed for wealth. Money & wealth are a form of divine energy.
  • Swami Vivekananda righty said that religion was not for empty stomach. Soothing words would not comfort a hungry soul as much as a morsel of food. None of the Hindu Gods & Goddesses are really poor. They always help the poor & needy, none of them glorify poverty as a virtue.

  • Kama in a broader sense means desire and in a narrow sense sexual desire. Both Hinduism & Buddhism consider desire as the root cause of human suffering. According to Bhagavad-Gita desire leads delusion and bondage to the cycle of births & deaths.
  • The way-out of suffering is to become detached from the sense objects through such practices as yoga and Meditation and perform desire less actions as a sacrificial offerings to God with a sense of duty, accepting God as the doer and without hankering after the fruit of one's actions. You can't stop natural tendency (desire) for more health, wealth, position and so on. Learn to fulfill one's desires in right way by performing one's obligatory duties in the right manner but not by neglecting them so that the way of dharma also becomes the way fulfillment of desires.
  • Dharma exists in all planes, in all aspects and at all level of creation. Dharma can be called as duty, faith, religion, righteousness, sacred law, justice, ethics, morality and so on.
  • In a wider sense, Dharma is the secret glue, the blinding force, which upholds and regulates the entire creation just as the gravitational force controls and holds the entire material universe as one piece. Dharma is an obligatory duty as prescribed by Vedas not optional.
  • God is an upholder of Dharma

  • Moksha actually means absence of moha or delusion or attachment. Delusion is caused by the interplay of the triple gunas, the activity of the senses, attachment with and desire for sense objects.

    A person achieve liberation when he increases the quality of sattva, suppressing rajas and tamas and overcomes his desire for sense objects by detachment, selfcontrol, surrender to God and offerings of one's actions to God.

    The help & guidance of a guru is indispensable to one's spiritual Journey & Guru is God in human form. The Chief purpose of Guru is to remove the darkness hidden in the hearts and minds of his disciples and help them find their true selves.
