What is necessary for man – money, skill, luck or faith?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

All are necessary. If you ask, ‘what is necessary for man – teeth, nose, ears, or eyes?’, what will I say?
To eat a sweet (adirsam), you need teeth; if you want to smell it you need the nose; if you want to see it, you need eyes. Ears are also necessary. All are necessary in life. To realize which is appropriate at a particular time, is viveka(discrimination).
