Inspired by a recent comment on another thread: Is it possible to be materially wealthy and live in accordance with Buddhist morality?
Would you rather they [monks and nuns] walked everywhere and slept in a cardboard box?
At least their lives have meaning and significance.
Which is more than can be said for others who travel by private plane and feel entitled to luxurious surroundings.
What do we think? Any scriptural passages that refer to this?
