Becoming a Business Tycoon to Serve Krishna

ASK BVKS | February 27, 2012 |

English;

Question:

If a devotee runs his business with the attitude that he wants to make millions of pounds to propogate the Hare Krishna movement, Is it Bhakti?

Also, if he prays Krishna to empower him to become the world's leading business tycoon so that he will share a part of his profit to open prasadam resturants/Prabhupada bookstores (shops with Prabhupada's books) etc., would it be OK to pray?

Above all, I would imagine that setting an example (simple leaving and high thinking) as a leading businessman is a good thing. Is it correct?

Could you comment on this statement and explain how it is to be understood? Srila Prabhupada mentions material senses and then speaks about transcendental senses. Why does he not continue to say that devotees engage their material senses in the service of the Transcendence?
