Where to invest money?

February 26, 2010 Leave a comment

This is very troubling question every one of us have.

As told in ethical books,
Money will be looted by government in the form of taxes. (They ask us to submit tax returns, they put the rules what is tax exempted and what not. Governments never do the same back to citizens. They never tell what are their income and expenses. We can’t control them on where to invest our money.)
Money will be taken by Doctors as high fees for diseases which we never have.
Money will be taken by Lawyers, because we need to fight with unfair law suits.
Invest in Gold, it fluctuates. Invest in Shares, they will fall down.
Invest in Real estate; it will be washed away soon by different ways.

Where there is sweet, there are flies.

1. There is no guarantee for any type of investment in any country.
2. Investment is always in the hands of others and at the mercy of others.

This is the time to practice some philosophy.

1. Don’t be attached too much to Money, Gold and Investment.
2. Look at them as child’s sand castle in sea shore.

How to get max out of Money or Investment?
1. Invest in self, family. (Health, education)
2. Invest your time and money for kids (They are God given gifts).
3. Invest for community, friends and relatives.

Having too much money may cause following problems.
1. No peace. No sleep.
2. Creates tension and stress.
3. Leads to poor health.
4. Problems in relationships.
5. Attracts more law suites, lawyers, criminals and other gangs.
6. May push your doctor to perform more costly procedures.

Happiness and Health comes through
1. Self Contentment
2. Self discipline
3. Good Exercise, Good Food, Good Sleep.

Please remember there is no relationship between Money and Happiness.

For more information read Bible and Bhagvatgeeta.

Matthew 6:24
No one can serve two masters.
Either he will hate the one and love the other,
or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve both God and Money

Matthew 19:23-24
Then Jesus said to his disciples,
“I tell you the truth,
it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Again I tell you,
it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle
than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Luke 12:15
Jesus sait ‘Watch out!
Be on your guard against all kinds of greed;
a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.’

Man without income is useless.
Man without investment is fool.

Poor person can become Rich person only by investment.
Just saving wages makes it difficult to become rich.
— Bhavani

For many, investment is fashion.
Investing without fundamentals is foolish.

People invest money.
They forgot to invest in love, friends and family.
Without human touch, investment is useless.
— Bhavani

Please go through kautilya’s arthashastra
