240 Christina I need advertising and few dollars quick


I had a lecture here last night. The hall was not crowded, as there was very little ad[vertisement], but a fairly good — sized audience though. I hope they were pleased. If I feel better, I am going to have classes in this city soon. I am on the business path this time, you know. Want a few dollars quick, if I can..

ybrems - primary 1. Monks too need advertisements, if crowds have to fill halls. 2. Monks too should be on business path. 3. Monks too should make few dollars quick.
ybrao-a-donkey says: Why monks? Even politicians too need advertisements, be it obAma or rOmney or sOnia gAndhi or narEndra mODi or arvind kejriwal.

Not necessarily few dollars. Can be millions of dollars. But, 'quick' is important. We cannot afford to wait.

It is reported that 2016 Republican American Presidential Candidate Mr. Donald Trump demanded $10 million from an American TV Channel, for participating in a Debate with Mr. Bernie Sanders, who has nearly lost his Democratic Nomination to Ms. Hillary Clinton. This proves: Monks or Politicians, without dollars nothing will move.

swAmi vivEkAnanda claimed to be a great exponent and proponent of Bhagavad Gita.

0602. What scholars call ‷relinquishment‷, is the 'Union or conjugation'. This is because persons who do not forego desire and the desire motivated actions cannot become persons linked to supreme soul. ——↠↠ yam sanyAsam iti prAhur yOgam tam viddhi pAnDava na hi asanyasta samkalpO yOgI bhavati kaS ca na.


See how swAmiji was craving for dollars.
