Question to Radhanath Swami: Do we have to give up everything to come close to God?
Radhanath Swami: All the things in this world are meant to be utilized according to our nature, in the service of God. Then it’s wonderful. Not that you have to give up everything; that’s very difficult and in many ways it’s very unnatural. If something can be utilized in a very dynamic and wonderful way in the service of God and for the welfare of others, you should utilize it, you should not renounce it.
