The foolish rulers who became tainted with the lust for wealth and power failed to maintain their devotion to Sanat. When that happened, he made them his property for eternity by turning them into the purest gold. The sheer size of the glistening cache spoke greatly of the innate greed of humanity. Those who used his aid to fulfill their desires were certain to encounter the same fate. He did not wish to punish, yet he demanded his due respect.
Sanat is a masculine name of Sanskrit origin; the meaning is "ancient". Also as a word translates as "lyrics" from Finnish and "art" from Turkish.
Greed (Latin, avaritia), also known as avarice, cupidity, or covetousness, is one of the seven deadly sins; the inordinate desire to possess wealth, goods, or objects of abstract value with the intention to keep it for one's self, far beyond the dictates of basic survival and comfort. It is applied to a markedly high desire for and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.
