Talk on "Bad Money Drives out Good - The Law of Economics and The Law of Spirituality

Swami Ji says true masters teach humanity a beautiful blend of world and God
He asks people to be careful of pseudo-masters who exploit their desires
Only a real master can help one advance spiritually, accomplish big results and expand one’s outlook and consciousness


Delhi, January 13, 2017: India’s ancient traditions focus on spirituality and matter in equal measure, and material science and spiritual science should go hand in hand to achieve true success, inner peace and unity. True masters teach humanity a beautiful blend of world and God, because the world itself is a manifestation of God, said Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri, the renowned philosopher and thinker of Kerala’s Mata Amritanandamayi Math of Kerala and the head disciple of renowned humanitarian and spiritual leader Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma). He was giving a spiritual discourse on “Bad Money Drives Out Good: The Law of Economics and The Law of Spirituality,” in the city today.

Addressing hundreds of devotees, Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri said that in ancient times, India was a land not only known for spirituality, but also for physics, chemistry, medicine, astrology, and mathematics. It was not focused on the spirit alone. It was also very much focused on matter. It respected both. In fact, India was “modern” before the word even came into existence!

Swami Ji said: “One important lesson of our scriptures, which many overlook, is the call to a life of glory. Many passages in the Vedas give a clarion call to all aspirants to acquire greatness and glory by their golden deeds. This ancient land has always produced great, enlightened masters who experienced and shared both the subtle and gross principles of the universe with humanity. But where there are genuine masters, imitators also arise.”

Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri warned: “There is a monetary principle stating that ‘bad money drives out good.’ Similarly, in today’s world, genuine spiritual masters risk being overshadowed by pretenders and pseudo-masters who trap people with false promises and exploit their desires. Unfortunately, majority of the people, crazy for money, power, and fame, go after these fake masters and fall an easy victim to their promises.”

Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri explained the importance of a true Master and said that only a true master can help one advance spiritually. “A true master helps you think big, dream big, and accomplish big results. A Master helps you expand your outlook, expand your consciousness. The greatest lesson a true master teaches is to be consciously aware. Our scriptures speak about the concept of ‘Vasudhaiva Kudumbakam’ – the entire world as one family. This Vedic declaration is an instruction to humanity to abide the Universal Law and strive to live like family. So, just as ‘demonetization’ did in the world outside, we need to do a ‘surgical ‘demonetization’ strike’ in the inner world as well. A true master will prepare us for that inner revolution to happen.”
