Luxury is defined as a condition of abundance, great ease & comfort, or elegance, especially when involving great expense & producing pleasure. It reflects wants & not needs, & has the idea of "aspirational lifestyle" attached to it.
Zen Approach to Abundance: "Half of humanity has been accepting the inner world but denying the outer world. The other half of humanity has been accepting the material world & denying the inner world. Both are half, & no man who is half can be contented. You have to be whole: rich in the body, rich in science; rich in meditation, rich in consciousness. Only a whole person is a holy person, according to me...I want Zorba and Buddha to meet together..." We interpret Luxury as healthy, wholesome, harmonious & sustainable Abundance; not as hedonism.
