Saturn is considered to be the giver of spiritual knowledge (Jnana Karaka) and is said to be the husband of the deity of poverty (Jyestha Devi). This means that the best ground for the spiritual knowledge is poverty only but not wealth. The excess of wealth will lead to ego and attraction to luxury and is not congenial for the spiritual knowledge. But a minimum is essential for the basic needs of a spiritual preacher. A spiritual preacher must have his own minimum arrangement for the basic needs of himself and his family without depending on the society. If a spiritual preacher shows need for the basic maintenance, his preaching is misunderstood by the public.
