“I am only interested if you know any yoga technique that can bring me more wealth,” said Zhang with conviction.

Ravi and Zhang laughed. This is not the first time that Ravi heard this. It seems that everyone wish to be rich. But the billionaires, when they get old, often wish that they have a more balanced life. Ravi has read many stories of children fighting over the wealth of their billionaire parent and wishing that their parent would pass on earlier so that they could inherit their wealth. Ravi recalled that a billionaire friend once said to him that his biggest regret is that he neglected his children and now, they lack the wisdom and skill to stand on their own. Perhaps Bill Gates predicted this happening to his children and he publicly declared that he will give away all his wealth and will leave only a small fraction of it to his children. That move may have been done for the sake of his children.

“Zhang, you are familiar with the Chinese fortune telling tool called “Bazi” right?”Kriya Yoga Articles


“Would you consider a chart that is filled with many ‘wealth stars’ a good chart?”

“No. The foundation of Bazi is the principle of ‘Ying’ and ‘Yang’; the two extremes of black and white which balance off each other. A Bazi with too many wealth stars would mean that other aspects of the person’s life such as his family relationship, health, friendships or other areas would be negative”.

Ravi nodded, “So if a person’s Bazi has too many ‘Wealth Stars’, am I right to assume that the Bazi advisor will probably provide the person with remedies which would reduce the effect of the ‘Wealth Stars’?”

Zhang contemplated that question for a moment, “You are probably right but I am not sure”.

Ravi smiled, “That’s OK. It is not important. Tell me Zhang, do you want to be rich or happy?”

Zhang looked puzzled, “Aren’t they the same thing?”

“Do you need to be rich to be happy?”


“Is a rich person always a happy person?”


“Then they are not the same thing”

Ravi and Zhang laughed.

Ravi continued, “The understanding that a balanced life is more important to our happiness than wealth, can bring us contentment. If we have enough to eat and a place to stay, that would mean that we already have enough wealth to be happy. Most of us already have more than that.”

Zhang nodded. That made sense to him. He already earns a high income and yet, he seeks more wealth.

Ravi smiled, “A practitioner of Yoga seeks to achieve self-realisation but on his way towards that goal, he learns to be happier. Everyday, he gains more and more control over his mind and emotions. He becomes more capable to act with wisdom instead of reacting based on his past conditioning. This means that he has greater control over his destiny.”

Zhang straightened up from his seat and gave Ravi a big smile, “Alright, tell me about this Yoga thingy that you are practicing”.
