Sadhguru looks at when money matters and when it doesn’t, and how we can make the best of it when it’s a question of money management.

 

萨古鲁教导我们如何对待金钱,金钱什么时候重要,什么时候不重要,在资金管理的问题上,我们又该如何最有效地使用金钱。

 

Sadhguru: Sometime ago, someone brought a man to me. He was depressed and broken and wanted to commit suicide. Why? Because about five years ago, he was worth three thousand crores. Then he played in the stock market and things went a little wrong, and his worth dived a little bit. When he came to me, he was worth only two hundred and fifty crores. So he wanted to commit suicide. Most people in India, if you give them that much money and tell them, “Do you want the money or do you want to go to heaven,” they will ask for the money. But this man is broken! If you keep money in your pocket, it is great. But if it enters your head, it becomes misery because that is not its place.

 

萨古鲁:前些时候,有人把一个男人带到我面前。他因为破产而万念俱灰,想要自杀。为什么呢?因为五年前,他身价300亿卢比,然后他开始玩股票,股市出了状况,导致他的身价下跌。他来找我时,身价只有25亿卢比。所以他想自杀。在印度,如果你把这么多钱给人们,并问他们是要金钱还是去天堂,大多人会选择金钱。但是这个男人被击垮了。如果你把钱保存在口袋里,这很棒,但是一旦金钱进入你的脑袋,它就会成为痛苦,因为头脑不是金钱应该待的地方。

 

Wealth is just one of the tools towards human wellbeing, not the whole of it.

 

财富只是人类获得幸福的工具之一,而不是生命的全部。

 

What we need in the world is not just “wealth creation.” We need to create wellbeing. Wealth is just one of the tools towards human wellbeing, not the whole of it. Wealth means making the outside pleasant for ourselves. But right now, people are going at it like it is a religion. Money is just a means; it is not an end by itself. We are making it too big for nothing. Is it bad? Is it good? It is neither; it is just a tool that we created. We must understand that no one is aspiring for money. That may sound ridiculous, but I am saying it is not the money that they want. It is just that money has become the means for what they consider as a better life.

 

在这个世界,我们需要的不只是创造财富,我们需要创造幸福。财富只是人类获得幸福的工具之一,而不是生命的全部。财富使我们的外在舒适,但现在,人们追求财富就像信奉宗教一样。金钱只是一种手段,它本身不是最终目的。我们在徒劳地夸大金钱,这是好事还是坏事?都不是;金钱只是我们创造的一种工具。我们必须明白没有人渴望金钱,这看似有点荒唐,但人们追求的并不是金钱本身,人们认为金钱是一种获得更好生活的途径。

 

It is just that if money does not stay in your pockets and goes into your head, misery will come.

 

如果金钱不是保存在你的口袋里,而是进入你
