Importantly, L-2 in vyayasthana does not necessarily destroy wealth. Managing the wealth is perhaps tiring, but the native may be born into wealth, acquire wealth, distribute wealth, and enjoy wealth with no restrictions.

Otherwise, the activities of wealth may continue unabated since L-2 in 11th from swakshetra creates a valid dhana-yoga.
"You can do this anytime you eat a meal.
In this way, by relying on our teachers, our benefactors, and those in need, we gather the virtues of devotion, gratitude, and kindness."
