Spiritual life can actually offer us all satisfaction without a doubt otherwise why would I still be here after thirty years – my father is a rich man, my family has plenty of cash and I could go back saying I have changed my mind, enough of this Hare Krishna now. Why don’t you give me some opportunities in the family business? of course I have to prove myself for a little while that I am straight now, but then you know, I could have gone on with every enjoyment – Then why keep on doing this?
because there is a higher taste, one can do it for a while just for show biz for a couple of months, maybe a year and put up a show – but how long can we live like that if there is no inspiration?
