सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिन:
सर्वे सन्तु निरामया:।
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु।
मा कश्चित् दु:खभाग भवेत् ।।
Happiness be unto all.
Perfect health be unto all.
May all see what is good.
May all be free from suffering.
Freedom from covetousness and possessions beyond one's needs;
Aparigraha allows one to be free from
the fear of loss,
hatred & anger towards what other's have, or
attachment and disappointment when things are lost or unattainable.

By the practice of Aparigraha one is aided in the practice of Ahimsa (non-killing),
Satya (truthfulness), and
Asteya (non-stealing).

A rule is to never take more than what you need for your simple and bare living. Through the daily practice of the proceeding five actions of Yama, or self-restraint, one will quickly gain progress upon the spiritual path.
