VERSE 2

After first warning against the desire for mere scholarship forgetful of god, and for the renown that it brings, Sri Sankara next speaks about the desire to amass wealth.

Men ceaselessly crave for money, for more Money without end. They see that this insatiable desire for Money only breeds pain and sorrow. Yet, they do not learn a lesson from it.

Fool! Give up this insatiable desire for Wealth,

Be wise and develop serene content:

Be satisfied and happy with the fruits of your own labour.

The 'Bhaja Govindam' was sung for everybody including the unlettered man in the street. Wisdom and devotion are the invaluable brightness of every person. Sri Sankara's teaching is not only for the Sanyaasins who have renounced the world. He signs also for the ordinary men who eke out their livelihood with the labour of their hands. 'Yallabhase najakarmopaattam vittam': 'What you earn by your own labour';
