About the Book:

The Four Noble Truths of Wealth is an introduction to Buddhism and meditation, as it applies to work, money, and the emotional side of life. One’s view of economic life is the key to making it more workable. Economic challenges can also be invitations to deeper insight.

Beyond our personal predicaments, the materialistic understanding of wealth can also be linked to poverty, conflict, and environmental degradation around the world. It is the potential for material comfort and increased capacity that money affords which connects it to prosperity.  But, as meditators, we know that comfort is relative, and increased capacity can be accessed more directly.  We also know financial windfalls do not necessarily translate into increased awareness! With a deeper understanding of wealth, we access genuine richness moment by moment, and have a better idea how to prioritize our relative wealth to increase prosperity in a lasting way.

Learning to recognize and relax within the cyclone of one’s personal material wealth karma is an excellent path to a profound and joyful life.
