If someone gets a million dollars ,he takes what he needs for himself, for his basic requirements. He would give the surplus to Krsna or he would give a certain percentage based upon the advice of the acarya ,to Krsna. We have the *grandson of* *Henry Ford , Alfred Ford ,* Ambarish das. He’s got many millions of dollars. Prabhupada never told him to throw his money away. He said to him, “Go on investing it, and use this money for promoting Krsna consciousness. He just contributed the million dollars to temple in Mayapur to build the memorial, finishing the memorial to Srila Prabhupada Samadhi. If we get another million, we will use it for the same purpose. We want to build 30 to 50 million dollar temple in Mayapur. the point is that we don’t want to use the money to increase our living standard.
