This Story Behind True Wealth Will 

Haunt You Forever! True wealth Not one 


or two, but most of us are engaged only 

in piling up the material wealth, 

assuming it to be the source of 

happiness. But rare are those beings 

who have come to realize the truth and 

have truly searched for the true wealth, 

the wealth of inner contentment, peace, 

and fulfillment.



This Story Behind True Wealth Will 

Haunt You Forever! Siddhartha, who 

later became known as Buddha, came 

to understand the reality of the material 

wealth in his early youth. He made up 

his mind to go to the forest in search of 

true happiness, leaving behind his 

magnificent palace, all the luxuries, his 

beautiful wife and his infant son. 

Around midnight, he asked his 

charioteer by the name Chann to pull 

out the chariot and requested him to 

drop him at the outskirts of the state.

They both drove and when Siddhartha 

stepped down from the chariot and 

asked Chann to leave, Chann started 

crying.


He said, ‘Prince
what are you doing?

 You are going to leave all this wealth 

and opulence. You are making a big 

mistake. I am just a servant. Little 

mouth and big talk! But somehow my 

heart is not agreeing without telling. 

And that is why I am saying this. I am 

guilty of giving suggestion to the 

master, but please use your mind. Why 

are you leaving all this wealth, 

eminence and family?’


Siddhartha said, ‘My dear Chann! You 

saw these treasures full of gold and 

diamond from a distance, but I was the 

owner. I have seen them from close. 

You have seen this royal eminence from 

afar, but I have seen it from up close. 

You are only a charioteer, but I am the 

owner of this chariot. 

I have experienced that this is not the 

real wealth. I have seen it from very 

close.’


Moral of the story

Siddhartha continued: ‘True wealth is that which gives strength, peace and happiness. True wealth is that which satisfies your desires and makes you desire-less.



 But this wealth is only an obstacle for 

me. I am not getting inner peace from 

such wealth and it makes me yearn for 

more. Your preaching is alright, but 

these are as per your limited 

perception. In reality, your teachings 

don’t hold any water.’ And then 

Siddhartha continued with his journey 

of finding the true wealth, the wealth of 

Self realization.


True wealth- Not one or two, but most of us are engaged only in piling up the material wealth, assuming it to be the source of happiness. But rare are those beings who have come to realize the truth and have truly searched for the true wealth, the wealth of inner contentment, peace and fulfillment.
