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?

If You Are Struggling in Practice of Brahmacarya

February 27, 2011 |

Question: I am practicing brahmacarya, but I sometimes find it a struggle. I find the night time most difficult, I can’t control the dreams, and I end up masturbating in the dream. I read that after 12 years of perfect brahmacarya, one develops super memory, clairvoyance etc., and atma-tattva, but does this also mean no wet dream for the entire 12 years = 365*12 more than 5000 dreams that have to be controlled!

Question:

I have been practicing for several years but when recently asked by another young devotee regarding when one gets the taste for chanting I had to frankly admit that I hadn't got it yet. I can understand that it is due to offences and inattentive chanting. If it is not too impertinent to ask, may I request you to share your personal experience about chanting. I have heard from your lectures that you were chanting 16 rounds from the day you joined. Of course it depends on the devotee's level of sincerity and one cannot put a timeline on when one gets a taste from chanting and consequently other things such as waking up early, but hearing from you will definitely inspire those of us who are struggling.
