Kotowaza of the day: Pocket change nirvana


Amida-mo zeni-de hikaru

Meaning of Japanese:
Money will make even the Buddha shine
In a material world, Buddha too must at times rely upon money

English equivalent:
No penny, no Pater Noster

Money makes the world go 'round, is my suggestion for an alternate English equivalent.

Hmm... this kotowaza is pretty narrow in focus, but maybe I'm just saying that because I found a more general one to match your suggestion.
