Possess neither too much nor less money

A Collector's wife said to Sri Nannagaru: "My husband has a great honour in the society but he has not saved much money."

Sri Nannagaru replied: "Don't you have sufficient savings? What will you do by earning more money? You have already been through with your daughter’s marriage. They are already employees of a bank. Even you will get pension on retiring from your job. Though you don't have surplus money, the money you possess is sufficient. If you have excess money, you will be constantly afraid of the Income tax raids. Also excess money will slowly pollute your mind. Possessing money is equivalent to wearing slippers. The slippers should be neither too small nor too big. You maybe pricked by pebbles or thorns if they are big, you may slip & fall. So you should not possess too much or too little money.It should be sufficient for your needs.
