तस्मात् संपादयन्नित्यं वित्तं यावत्प्रयोजनम्
श्रीनिवासे जगन्नाथे भक्तिं कुर्यादहर्निशम्
अर्थलोभेन लोकेस्मिन् व्यर्थं कुर्वन्ति जीवितम्
मरणं न हि जानन्ति पश्चादेव स्थितं नराः
अटतामर्थलोभेन कालक्षेपो वृथा गतः
तेषां न विद्यते कालः स्मरणाय जगत्पतेः
One should earn that much money necessary for his maintenance alone and concentrate his mind on Shri Jagannatha for cultivating devotion. People squander their lives due to their craving for money. They are not conscious of inevitable death that awaits them.
Those who are mad after money while away their precious life-time in vail pursuits. They find no time to engage in chanting the Divine Name of Shri Krishna.

Lord Rama says, "Any accumulated wealth will dissolve in due time. Any position of power attained will come to an end. All the relations (children, wife) come to an end in death. There is nothing in this world that is permanent."
