O, mad man! Why this engrossment in thoughts of wealth and beloved? Is there no one to guide you? Seeing the truth revealed before them, still the foolish ones can not see through these many disguises.

Give up your lust to amass wealth. Give up such desires from your mind and take up the path of righteousness. Keep your mind happy with the money which comes as the result of your hard work. Deliberate on this again and again in your mind.
But afterwards, when the body becomes weak no one inquiries about him even during the talks. But when the vital air Prana departs from the body, even the wife fears from the corpse. Old age goes in worrying over every thing. But there is no one who wants to be engrossed in Govind, the parabrahman at any stage.
Who is your son? Knowing this whole world to be under the illusion of Maya, you try to attain the Absolute. In this sport of Time entire life goes away, but the storm of desire never departs or diminishes. Why do you worry about your wealth and wife? Is there no one to take care of them? But only the one fixing his mind on God lovingly enjoys bliss, enjoys bliss, enjoys bliss. O Murari! Who am I? From where I have come? Who is my mother, who is my father? Ponder over these and after understanding,this world to be meaningless like a dream,relinquish it.
If you wish to attain the eternal status of Vishnu, practice equanimity all the time, in all the things. See yourself in everyone and give up ignorance of duality everywhere. Ponder over your real nature. Those devoid of the knowledge of self come in this world, a hidden hell, endlessly. Enjoy the company of noble people and do charity for the poor and the needy. Though in this world everything ends in death, man does not give up the sinful conduct.
A rich man fears even his own son. This is the law of riches everywhere. Through disciplined senses and mind, you can see the indwelling Lord of your heart!
This article is from the book Bhaja Govindam. Bhaja Govindam Sri Swami Chidananda Introduction: Bhagavad-pad-acharya, Jagad-guru Adi Shankaracharya, one of the greatest philosophers the world has ever produced, unparalleled in his Realisation, as well as in his exposition of the nature of the ultimate Reality, has commented upon all the three great scriptures that form the source of our religion Sanatana Vaidika Dharma. Vedas are the mother scriptures of those who follow the Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism. Upanishads are that portion of the Vedas, which expounds the nature of the ultimate Reality, and thus, is one of the most important parts of these scriptures. The quintessence of the Upanishads is propounded in Srimad Bhagavad Gita in a brief, concise, aphoristic yet complete form by Bhagavan Veda-Vyasa, Bhagavan Badarayana, an amsha avatar a partial incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is the second great scripture upon which the entire Sanatana Dharma rests. In the Bhagavad Gita we have got the whole of Vedanta, the whole of the upanishadic wisdom.
