Ishavasya Upanishad – 02 by L Ramaswamy

The celebrated first Mantra of Ishavasya Upanishad, declaring the all-pervasive nature of Lord, is a complete scripture by itself. One should raise one’s vision to perceive the changeless substratum of Brahman which envelopes every aspect of the ever-changing universe. Renunciation is the key to enjoyment. A renunciate is the real monarch of the world. Hence the Mantra instructs the seeker against coveting the wealth of others.

How do we then relate to wealth? How do we calculate usage of money in our lives? Shastras suggest a formula to resolve this.
