Prayers to Make Money for Preaching

ASK BVKS | April 24, 2012 |

English;

Question:

I have had a desire to become a wealthy businessman for some time and then heard a Prabhupada lecture where he said making money for Krishna is welcome so I started to think that making money for the movement could be my service. I read Prabhupada's books, attend weekly sangas most weeks and have distributed Prabhupada's books on an ad hoc basis but am now taking this service up regularly every Saturday (door to door). I chant 16 rounds daily and am starting program's once a month at my house to preach Mahaprabhu's mission. If I pray for Krishna to empower me to make money for the movement (if he pleases) through my business (as my service along with my other service's), is it OK? Can you clarify please?

Question:

During the Sri Sri Gurvastaka Meditation. Should we meditate on our Guru or on Srila Prabhupada?

Answer by HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami:

Gurv-aṣṭaka meditation. Should we meditate on our guru or on Śrīla Prabhupāda?

You can meditate on both, as suitable. Yeah, as suitable means that not everything may be applicable to your own guru. Śrīla Prabhupāda said that this Gurv-aṣṭaka, it doesn’t apply to all gurus. At least the part of verses five and six specifically refer to those who in their form as a gopī assisting the… Well, especially number six applies to a gopī who is engaged in the direct service of Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa. Therefore I say you can meditate as is suitable. Not everything may be applicable.

Question:

I have a doubt about usage of making films in Krishna conscious preaching. I have a desire to become a nice filmmaker and make some good films to entertain and enlighten people. But after knowing philosophy of Krishna consciousness, I am in a great confusion of how to live my rest of life. So can you please kindly clear my doubt.

Can a devotee learn to produce films or animation techniques and try to preach through media by making films like Ramayana, Mahabharata etc. in large scale productions, making nice devotional documentaries, biographies of elevated devotees? or doing such thing is just sense gratification for achieving my personal goal?
