I have a disciple in the South America. He was doing devotional service. He got an inheritance of 18 thousand dollars, which in South America is like a fortune. He left Krsna consciousness, he just broke every principle conceivable , and did so many sinful activities until all his money ran out . Then he came back to the temple completely burnt out, wanted to again get a position, you know… It’s a real sudra kind of mentality. You get a little bit and you forget everything. It’s like the person works all month to get a pay check, and the first thing they do is get drunk. It shouldn’t be like that.
