When it comes to poverty, People generally recognize that there is a lack of basic necessities of life such as foods, clothes and shelter. However, poverty is a broad concept and multifaceted that cannot be explained by pinpointing the basic necessities of life. In some Buddhist stories, heavenly beings, who can create everything needed, think they are still relatively in poverty. So, they are still striving to be free from their relative poverty. In sociology, poverty is divided into three types: absolute poverty, subjective poverty and relative poverty. Absolute poverty in which people lack of basic necessities of life is very easy to be seen while subjective poverty and relative poverty are hard to be seen.
