Wealth is contentment ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

For a dharma practitioner, wealth is not gold, silver, or a healthy bank account; wealth is contentment — the feeling that you have enough and need nothing more. Jigme Lingpa went on to say that although renunciants may not necessarily hunger for wealth, they might well long for fame, which he warned practitioners, is even worse than craving for wealth.
