Question to Radhanath Swami: I want to accumulate more wealth and then channelize it for the service of Krishna. But I have a fear that I may deviate and instead of using it for Krishna I may use it more for personal enjoyment. How do I keep a check on this?
Radhanath Swami Answers: It is possible if we are honest. Secondly, we require spiritual guidance for such important spiritual decisions. If we are in association of devotees we can learn to be an honest devotee of the Lord.
Question to Radhanath Swami: There is so much exploitation around. How can I save myself?
Radhanath Swami: If people are God conscious they cannot be exploited. One can only exploit a person who is attached to enjoyment.
Question to Radhanath Swami: How to develop appreciation for deities?
Radhanath Swami: Srila Bhaktisiddanta Saraswathi Thakur, a prominent saint and ourparam guru, instructed us, “Do not try to see Lord Krishna. Try to serve Lord Krishna so that He wants to see you.” We should not think the deity as an object of our enjoyment. We should approach the deity thinking we are an object of His enjoyment.
