“Man can be rich both, spiritually and materially. I don’t see any problem in it. Why can’t you sit silently in meditation in a beautiful palace? I don’t think that the beautiful palace will disturb you. It is more possible sitting under the tree, the crows may disturb you, the falling leaves may disturb you, the ants may disturb you;… but in a beautiful palace, meditation will be more easier. Lying in a jacuzzi, meditation will be more easier. So I am not against materialism, I am not against spiritualism. I want them stand together. Only then man is complete.”
Only when your ego can’t separate itself from the material things it become a problem. Then the material things own you, not the other way around. Who are you if you loose your job, home, car, and so on?
