“Kubera is famous for hoarding wealth. All his life, he collects and collects and never thinks of spending wealth. Like many of us, he has a neurotic obsession with hoarding inordinate amounts of wealth that he is never ever going to use. Just like us, he enjoys the subtle power that holding wealth can bring.
Lakshmi, on the other hand, represents wealth that is flowing, circulating, current. She uses wealth to enrich herself and the world. She creates wealth effortlessly, uses it freely, distributes it unconditionally. Lakshmi breathes life into wealth, and wealth into life. Are you being a Kubera or a Lakshmi right now?”
– His Divine Holiness Sri Nithyananda Swami
