We shouldn’t consider carrying out the order of the guru in terms of preaching Krishna consciousness to be material. I was once Srila Prabhupada requesting more time in reading books because I was busy day and night building all the buildings in Mayapur. Maybe I didn’t present it properly, and Prabhupada started to chastise me. “Do you think that building my temples is material? Is building my temple different from reading my books? It is all spiritual.” So for executing our Krishna Consciousness, duly approved by the spiritual master in the disciplic succession, there is no question of material.
