determined more and more to be fixed in Krishna consciousness.

Sukracarya’s very conscious about preserving the wealth but we understand that by Prabhupada’s instruction that it’s more important to be very conscious to see that all wealth is used in the service of Krishna then one fortune and one’s success in life spiritually materially, every aspect is preserved. Just as Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita, yoga-ksemam vahamy aham you see, I’ll give you what you, I’ll preserve what you have and provide what you need, for the devotees. So the devotees simply, his responsibility is simply to see that his every thought, word and deed is engaged in the service of Krishna and Krishna He looks out for His devotee. The more we are able to depend upon Krishna, the more Krishna will reciprocate with that. That dependence doesn’t mean non-action. It means active dependence. It means taking initiative to serve Krishna under the guidance of Guru, under the guidance of the Vaisnavas, under the control of the spiritual discipline, and within that service learning to depend upon Krishna, learning to, take one’s enthusiasm, take one’s, inspiration from Krishna. Not from material causes which may or may not be there. So in this way one becomes very steady, and becomes very, determined more and more to be fixed in Krishna consciousness.
