    The economic system is the cornerstone of social development. Its economic system has remained at the root of the progressive development of human civilization. A country, society or caste; Social, political and cultural upliftment is mainly based on the progress of its economic resources and facilities. In a country without these facilities, human society cannot develop its civilization and culture. Meaning has a special place in human life. That is why even now and in the past, meaning is sometimes considered indirectly more important than religion. Gautama Buddha was the first to know this weakness of human nature. Saying that the root of all sorrows is craving, Gautama Buddha also included Dravyalalase in craving. The first is the life of luxury and the second is the life of physical suffering. I am a preacher of this middle way. The destruction of sorrow is the sole purpose of this Dhamma. 'This is the first Dhamma of Tathagata. Social misery is created out of a sense of superiority and inferiority. There are two extremes in the society: exploiter and exploited, rich and poor. Sadness is created as soon as his ego of superiority is shaken. Gautama Buddha conveys the message of 'equality' from the point of view of the middle way of life, "Nekechi manussa settha na kechi manussa hina" that is, no man is superior or inferior. The beauty of human life is hidden in the Buddha's vision of equality
