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: In ordinary life, our short-term goals—wealth, fame, money, etc.—are measurable. To aspire for love of God is to pursue the proper long term goal. But unlike short-term goals, isn’t this goal achieved only after death?
Radhanath Swami: The highest goal does not come at the time of death. The highest goal comes when we make service to God the highest priority of our life.
Question to Radhanath Swami : Don’t material achievements assure success?
Radhanath Swami Answers : Suppose you achieve your goal, you achieve the position you are longing for, you achieve the popularity and prestige you always wanted, and you achieve wealth, house, car and children — everything perfectly the way you always wanted.
