During the time of His Divine Grace Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur, he had an automobile. Now, everybody has an automobile, but he was actually using that for preaching. Actually when some of his sanyasis were going down to the drug store or something, then he brought a letter which said, ordering that for preaching you can use the vehicle to preach. But if you want to just go down to the market to get something, then just walk. So, the vehicle was there and it was a valuable thing then, not like now, you can’t live without a vehicle practically. Everything is so spread out.
