My respectful obeisances to all Vaishnavas. One important issue is being introduced by me by the mercy of my beloved spiritual master Srila Prabhupad.
Only devotees who are chanting atleast 16 rounds, following four regulative principles & reading Srila Prabhupad's books atleast 1 hour daily, are requested to address the issue.
(1) Generally we speak that we should not listen SB through the mouth of a "professional" Bhagvatam reciter. What does it mean? If he will not charge money for his seven days discourse on Bhagvatam, then how should he manage his family finances? if he only charge "basic living amount", is it alright?
(2) If he does not charge any money formally for reciting Bhagvatam but accepts voluntary donations by listeners, is it alright?
(3) Because generally voluntary donation is not enough for maintaining his family & he also cannot charge money from people because it is non-scriptural idea, he leaves his Bhagvatam recitation & starts working in a factory with taking care of his personal sadhana. Is it better to work in a factory than charging basic living amount from greedy & lusty people of the world?
I request to all Vaishnavas to forgive me if my perception is not fully mature & realistic.
