MONEY IS JUST LIKE A POISONOUS SNAKE
Master Jun Hong Lu:
Buddha once said, ‘money is just like a poisonous snake.’ Sadly, there are so many people who perceive money to be as important as their life, even to the extent of falling out with family members over the family assets, or to the extent of paying the price with their lives.
Buddhism advocates contentment with what one has and to understand that all fame and profit in the human realm is just like a transient cloud that will eventually dissipate.
Bad and good circumstances are types of karmic affinities in the mortal world. As humans, we should learn to act in accordance with all conditions and learn to not be greedy or pursue desires. When free from desires, our minds will be as calm as still water.
