Do Devotees Get Influenced by the Three Modes of Material Nature?

Question: Do devotees get influenced by the three modes of material nature?… Expand>

Question:

Do devotees get influenced by the three modes of material nature?

 

ANSWER by HH Bhakti Vikāsa Swami:

“Do devotees get influenced by the three material modes of nature? Well, do you? You are a devotee. Do you get influenced? 
Sometimes. You are doing better than most of us.

māṁ ca yo 'vyabhicāreṇa
bhakti-yogena sevate
sa guṇān samatītyaitān
brahma-bhūyāya kalpate

Kṛṣṇa says: “One who engages in unflinching, unalloyed … ” 
What’s the word Prabhupāda uses?

“Undistracted devotional service to Me transcends the modes of material nature, becomes completely fixed on the transcendental platform.” Unalloyed. “One who engages in My unalloyed devotional service.” (BG 14.26)

So, yeah. We are also influenced by the modes of material nature, but we should practise Kṛṣṇa consciousness very seriously and then gradually we will become free from that influence.”

Prahlada's Apparent Prayers for Material Benediction

Question: I could understand from Srimad Bhagavatam that Sri Prahalada Maharaja is fearless, he is a pure devotee of the Lord and does not ask for any material benefits from the Lord. But in the Nrsimha Kavaca mantra it states that; “Oh Lord please protect me from west, east, north etc. and there is also the phalastruti (result of reciting the kavaca) which states that one attains material benedictions like putrvan (good son), dhanavan (wealth), long life etc.… Expand>

Maharaja, kindly explain how to understand these two different moods of Prahlada Maharaja.

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?
