As yoga has become popular in the West some aspects such as posture and meditation are being widely taught. Other jewels from this deep and complex philosophy are still little understood, particularly artha, one of the four purusharthas. Artha can be translated as prosperity and the concept is that the spiritual is not incompatible with material comfort. Living a spiritual life skilfully means being fully awake in the world. The Yoga Sutras talk about not stealing, and then true wealth is free to flow in through the law of abundance. It sounds simple, but such a deep shift of consciousness is never easy and it is useful to have a book that guides us through the necessary steps and offers examples of how others have overcome the many stumbling blocks.
