No need of money, no question of money

    Posted on February 2, 2018

Pusta Krsna: Now the incentive in modern society to become educated or to become engineer is money. What is the incentive in Vedic culture?

Prabhupada: There is no need of money. The brahmana teaches everything free of charge. There is no question of money. Anyone can take education as a brahmana or a ksatriya, as a vaisya. but that is free. Just find out a brahmana guru and he will give you free education. This is society. But in the Vedic society there is no question of money. Education free.

Harikesa: So the incentive is the happiness in society?

Prabhupada: Yes. That is everyone is hankering after: Where is happiness? This will be the happiness. When people will be peaceful, happy in their living condition, that will bring happiness.
