The eighth prosperity law says that doing well for the sake of mere accumulation of money is also pointless. Vedas affirm that the one whose knowledge is confined to books or whose wealth is in the possession of others, can use neither one’s knowledge nor wealth when the need for them arises. This is why financial crisis occurs so often now. People entrust wealth to the care of others thinking that this might help through hard times. But they don’t get their money back because hard times come to check our intelligence. Therefore, one should not only make money, but also save wisely so that it doesn’t lose value in hard times.
