Wealth (Artha) is one of the Purusharthas or legitimate objects of human endeavour. The four purusharthas are Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. They have been listed so in that order on purpose. Righteousness (Dharma) must direct and control the process of earning wealth (Artha) and liberation (Moksha) is to be the regulating factor of desire (kama). All wealth accruing from sources tainted by unrighteousness (Adharma) is to be treated with contempt and is unworthy of you. All desires that do not subserve the one supreme need for liberation are to be given up as beneath your dignity. So the spiritual basis, Dharma and Moksha, must be the root of Artha and Kama. Without this order, earning degenerates into plundering; desire degenerates into death.

- Divine Discourse, Jul 14, 1966.

Sathya Sai Baba
Share your knowledge, wealth and joy, with others less fortunate. That is the
surest way to win divine grace. - Baba
