How can we avoid blaming our spiritual life for our not being fast enough or ambitious enough in our material life?

    Respected Prabhuji,
    In all of Srila Prabhupada’s books, lectures, conversations and letters, nowhere he has talked of balancing material life and spiritual life and focussing more onto material life at any point of time. He had always told us that one gets his due share of happiness and distress based on past life Karmas and within whatever situation one is in, one has to make a consiistent effort for rendering loving devotional service to Krishna.
    Your reply seems to be giving an entirely different philosophical perspective to Srila Prabhupada’s. It looks more akin to other modern age gurus like Sri Ravishankar, Ramdev etc. who are operating at the subtle mental and ego levels rather than at the pure spiritual level of Srila Prabhupada.
    Srila Prabhupada gave us always the highest perspective and said that though there may very less students at Phd. level but one must know of the highest Phd. level and aspire for it from whatever level one is at.
    Hence I am confused. Could you please clarify on this.
