When Buddha came up with his philosophy, the world was a different place and today with the advent advanced technology and gross domestic product one needs to find contentment in the world.
The author in the book primarily talks about how one can allocate their sources in the best ways to get best returns. This maximizes your potential and increases the happiness quotient of one’s life. It is a rather genius way to live life because gone are the days where Moksha could be attained on the Himalayas. Even mountains have connectivity now and most of the time you would just be answering work calls. Hence one needs to find a balance in this world and enhance their happiness quotient. The book teaches one that materialism is not bad and need not have a negative spin. The author presses on the fact that Buddha on Wall-Street teaches one how to find contentment with materialism.
