Prosperity is (for a family) to have more than what is needed. We may need to ride once or twice in a day but a cycle is available to us for whole day – that’s prosperity. Our need is one quintal rice but our production yield is 20 quintals – that’s prosperity. These examples illustrate the principle - “resources are a plenty, needs are a few”. It is possible for us to experience prosperity in all aspects of our living. Experiencing prosperity is a justified need of human being. The material world is there so that human being could experience prosperity. There is only one way to experience prosperity – and that is to do production in excess of our family’s needs. The continuity of resolution is when human beings live in universal order with prosperity in their families. Wisdom once attained has its continuity. One doesn’t need to run pillar to post for getting resolution in every new situation. Wisdom is the basis of being resolved. Even remembering of problem cannot make us feel good. In this way – wisdom is the basis of experiencing resolution, hard labour is the basis of experiencing prosperity, and living in universal order is the basis of experiencing fearlessness.
