Do not attach yourself, too much to this body, or to the things that bring comfort to it. You earn three friends in this life, the first the riches you accumulate, refuse to come with you when you move out of this life. The second, kith and kin, accompanying your body up to the burial ground. The third, the merit and demerit, you have earned, accompanying to the last.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
