Non accumulation

Aparigraha literally means “non-hoarding.” It means don’t take more than you need – in any area of life. Mahatma Gandhi said it best: “There is more than enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for any man’s greed.”

It means live simply. Use only that which you require. It doesn’t mean live like a wandering monk, but it means that we must cultivate a sense of moderation and simplicity regardless of our financial means.

Travel light! The more we try to accumulate, the more we acquire, the more we get bogged down and the more difficulties we face. So, travel light in life and you will find that you progress quickly and easily.
