The Buddha’s Teachings on Prosperity

Money and investing. Relationships. Work and business. Sex. What could the Buddha tell us about such worldly concerns? More than you might think- and you’ll find it all here. Some of it might surprise you…

The freedom the Buddha offered to the layperson to be prosperous, and denies the popular but erroneous view that the Buddha discouraged striving for success. Based on this false view, some people mistakenly believe that being wealthy goes against the Buddhaʼs teachings— a misunderstanding that may make the Buddhaʼs teachings seem irrelevant to lay life.

“This book introduces the Buddhaʼs instructions, techniques, and tips for reaching material success, and clarifies how to initiate that journey.

Not only did Buddha not denigrate wealth & prosperity, as demonstrated by Bhikkhu Rahula, he also instructed the way to material well-being in an ethical way to his lay disciples.”
