Teachings For Life


I am poor and naked, but I am the chief of the nation.  We do not
want riches but we do want to train our children right.  Riches
would do us no good.  We could not take them with us to the
other world. We do not want riches.  We want peace and love.

It was our belief that the love of possessions is a
weakness to be overcome.  Its
appeal is to the material part, and if allowed its way, it will in time disturb one's
spiritual balance.  Therefore, children must early learn the beauty of generosity.
They are taught to give what they prize most, that they may taste the happiness of giving.
