Brahmanas and money, two quotes from Srila Prabhupada

    Posted on June 19, 2016



Русский перевод

1) A real brahmana never hoards money for a luxurious life, like the ksatriyas or the vaisyas, but always keeps himself poverty-stricken, knowing that money diverts the mind to materialistic ways of life. To live in this way is the vow of a qualified brahmana. (From Krsna Book)

2) The brahmanas should live by spreading knowledge and should therefore take contributions from their disciples. (From SB 4.21.50 ppt.)

Following in the footsteps of Srila Rupa Gosvami
If sincere, a "bad" devotee is not bad
Purely chanting
