Suppose if all the peoples of this world becomes equally rich or poor, then will not the world stop functions its basic regular courses. That’s why doesn’t the rich one are just being rich for the poors and the poors are just being poor for the riches. Where else there could be who is being rich or poor for themselves alone, don’t they needs each other to create things either good or bad just as the positive and negative current needs each other to produce either useful or harmful effects, therefore isn’t that they seem like to have an equal weight if the poor and the rich one are to be weighed on a pairs of a balanced scales.

    Most of these people came up on the horizon of the wealth due to the hard work, wisdom and their farsightedness; further, they are blessed with the Goddess of wealth. most of them are kind and large hearted, peace lovers and generous. So we must respect them and delight our self open heartedly in their pleasure. The “Universal power” will automatically bless upon us. It is a Law of the Universe.
