Devotee’s material position is not material

by January 16, 2013

In spiritual advancement, one’s material position improves at the same time that the path of liberation becomes clear and one is freed from material bondage. If one is situated in an opulent position in spiritual advancement, his opulence never decreases. Therefore such a spiritual benediction is called bhuti or vibhuti. Krishna confirms this in Bhagavad-gita (10.41). Yad yad vibhutimat sattvam. .. mama tejo-‘msa-sambhavam: if a devotee advances in spiritual consciousness and thus becomes materially opulent also, his position is a special gift from the Lord. Such opulence is never to be considered material.
