Dealings of A Devotee in The Material World

As Rupa Gosvami recommends, a devotee is not neglectful in worldly dealings. But at the same time, he deals with the material world only as much is necessary – not more and he detaches himself from the material world as much as possible.

Devotee’s Way of Seeing The World

A devotee doesn't simply negate everything, but sees everything in relation to Krishna. That is the devotee's way of seeing the world – not simply reject, but use everything in Krishna's service.

Ambition of Devotees

They are very enthusiastic to sell more and more Coca-cola. They are always thinking how to increase our business: "When will that day come when there isn't a person in the world who isn't drinking Coca-cola every day?" They are always meditating, always ambitious. So, devotees should be similarly ambitious: "When will that day come when there is not a person in the world who is not chanting Hare Krishna?"

Wish of Prabhupada

Prabhupada very much wanted that devotees come and live together. Of course he wanted them to also farm the land, protect cows and show a different kind of lifestyle by which people can live together simply without unnecessary things.
