Being rich is thanks to diligent labor, reasonable work arrangements, plans, creating a lot of profits. When enjoying riches but one still does not forget to do good deeds.

3. The joy not being indebted:

It is thanks to the ability to control. Practice less desires and self- knowing enough, do not get caught up in social evils, keep the five precepts ... so there is no debt, live freely.

4. Joy not being blamed: Because the actions of body, speech, and mind are always right, there is nothing to complain, so life is relaxed, knowledge advanced, the mind is often joyful.

Buddhists should live beneficially in ethics to make our life meaningful, become a beautiful example of life; practice a spiritual living, have the will of supporting, propagate the dharma, benefiting sentient beings. Giving knowledge, bringing happiness to people is contributing to alleviating suffering and misery in life.
