Categories of People

Are all the three: Right Understanding, Relationship and Physical facilities required or can we do away with one of them? and

If all three are required  what is the priority?

the answer to the above two questions is that we need to work for (1) Right Understanding as the basis on which we can work for (2) Relationships, and then (3) Physical Facilities.

Today, we can see that there are two kinds of people in the world:

    1. Those that do not have physical facilities/wealth and feel unhappy and deprived.
      • Thus, such people can be said to be ‘materially deficient, unhappy and deprived’ or ‘Sadhan Viheen Dukhi Daridra (साधन विहीन दुःखी दरिद्र)’.
      • The short form for this can be written as SVDD!
    2. Those that have physical facilities/wealth and feel unhappy and deprived!
      • Thus, such people can be said to be ‘materially affluent, but unhappy and deprived’ or ‘Sadhan Sampann Dukhi Daridra (साधन सम्पन्न दुःखी दरिद्र)’.
      • The short form for this can be written as SSDD!
        Check, where do you stand at (1) or (2)
        Both these are states we don’t want to be in! We want to move from this to (verify this)
    3. Having physical facilities and feeling happy and prosperous.
      • Such people can be said to be materially affluent, happy, and prosperous or ‘Sadhan Sampann Sukhi Samridh (साधन सम्पन्न सुखी समृद्ध)’.
      • The short form for this can be written as SSSS!

To ensure that we are of the 3rd category as described above, we need the right understanding!

Thus, we can conclude the following: We need to work for all three, and this is the order in which we have to work:

    1. Right Understanding
    2. Relationship
    3. Physical Facilities

Working with this order, we are able to ensure mutual fulfillment with human beings and mutual prosperity with the rest of nature.

Right Understanding + Relationship = Mutual Fulfillment

Right Understanding + Physical facilities = Mutual Prosperity
