Subject: Fwd: Poverty means poverty of knowledge

Poverty means poverty of knowledge. Prime minister Canakya Pandit used to
live in a thatched house or cottage but he was the dictator of India in the
days of Emperor Candra Gupta. Mahatma Gandhi your political Guru voluntarily
accepted the ways of the so called poor Indians and still he was the
dictator of India's destiny. But was he actually poverty sticken on account
of his plain living with the primitive charkha? He was always proud of his
spiritual knowledge. Therefore it is the spiritual knowledge which makes a
man really rich and not the radio set or the motor car. Please therefore try
to understand this position of Indian culture and try to give it to the
western brothers in the prescribed standard method of the liberated persons
and that will be an exchange of Indian culture with western material
advancement and necessarily bring in a happy life in the peaceful world.
