Once upon a time in a far away land a young man went to the forest and said to his spiritual master, "I want to have unlimited wealth, and with that unlimited wealth, I want to help and heal the world. Will you please tell me the secret to creating affluence?"
And the master said, "There are two Godesses that reside in your heart and everyone is deeply in love with these two supreme beings. But there is a certain secret that you need to know, and I will tell you what it is".
"Although you love two Goddesses, you must pay more attention to one of them. She is the Goddess of Knowledge, and her name is Sarasvati. Pursue her,love her and give her sttention. The other Goddess, whose name is Lakshmi, is the Goddess of Wealth.When you pay more attention to Sarasvati, Lakshmi wil become jealous and pay more attention to you. The more you seek the Goddess of Knowledge, the more the Goddess of Wealth will seek you. She will follow you wherever you go and never leave. And the wealth you desire will be yours forever"
Deepak Chopra from his book "Creating Affluence"
