Way of Accumulating We
There is nothing like wealth To make the worthless worthy. Everyone despises the poor While the rich are exalted by all. The unfailing light called wealth can dispel darkness Even in far reaching lands. Wealth acquired sinless and well, Yields both virtue and happiness. Discard and let go the wealth Obtained without love and grace. Unclaimed wealth, spoils of war and wealth from taxes Are all rulers' wealth. The offspring of love 'graciousness' is nursed By that generous foster-mother 'wealth'. A wealthy man's undertakings Are like elephant-fights witnessed from a hill. Stock wealth: no steel sharper than that To cut down your foe's pride. He who makes glorious wealth in plenty, Gains the other two treasures together.
