in Jagannath Puri, when Caitanya Mahaprabhu was present, there was one time, that the Rath refused to move, and the King he brought in a thousand stout men, they all pulled, it wouldn’t move. They brought elephants, and the elephants were straining, umm…., wouldn’t move. So the Kind said, What to do, Jagannath refused to move. So then Caitanya Mahaprabhu said, “You untie your elephants and untie your men, my ah… devotees will be chanting kirtan in the front and they will pull the rope and then we will see if Jagannath moves. Then Caitanya Mahaprabhu went on the… they were chanting in the front and He went to the backside, and with his head to the rath, He just applied it, and the rath went forward chk…chk…chk So by the mercy of… because we were supposed to have Nita-Gaur on the rath, and they didn’t bring, and therefore this may also have been the… without Caitanya don’t move so easily before…. So another example giving you accumulation of money by magic wand. Everybody, they are going through this Godmen, with a hope that I will get some magic money, just by the wave of a hand he will give me one diamond ring, or Sico watch or something, but they don’t realize that by definition, Vedas are saying that such money they never sticks. If you actually get a blessing from Krishna, and you become you can become economically developed.
