Wealth, the Buddha tells us, is to be used for our benefit as well as for the benefit of others. But some people would rather hold on tight to their wealth and neither spend on themselves nor others. Hoarding like this can make our present lives miserable. But what about our future rebirths? Could hoarding be linked to the clinging and attachment that keeps us in the endless cycles of existence and suffering?
