The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari...!!!

Recently I read the novel "The monk who sold his Ferrari" by Robin Singh. I really loved it. The novel is all about how to live a life full of happiness, peace and self satisfaction. There are few techniques in the novel that can really help us to attain a higher degree of life. What do you people think about it?

Hi, Anything that is not needed is luxury contrary to what is necessary. Luxuries don't really bring much happiness but a necessity that is achieved can bring great satisfaction. It includes things like food and water for survival or a practical tool that is used to achieve a certain good thing. Now, what can a monk do with a car when all he has to do is live inside the monastery to work and pray. A Ferrari is more useful for a race driver or a company executive to convey himself to work. Things needed for a good cause brings happiness to the one who desires it when acquired.

Hi Rog. I agree with your point of view that something is purposeful only when if it at its right place or in right hands but your words are not going parallel with the novel because it is actually about a lawyer who possess all materialistic things of world, including Ferrari but later on turns into monk due to various reasons.
