In Yoga Philosophy, the concept of Aparigraha, translates as ‘non-greed’, ‘non-possessiveness’, and ‘non-attachment’.

All our financial habits begin to form in our younger years. How we spend, save, budget and invest is largely attributable to what we saw our parents, friends and those of influence around us do. Sometimes, the lessons that we learn about money are based on the bad habits of others or on misguided advice.
