There is no amount of material acquisition, whether it be tangible possessions or the subtle claiming of prestige, position, and power, that will make up for the lack of pure connection to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Nothing except this pure connection in love of Godhead will satisfy the heart of the living entity. Every other endeavor is simply dry and useless pursuit. However, that does not mean that we take a vow of poverty. If Krishna gives to us, by His own sweet will, great opulence, and we use it in His service and the service of those who serve His desire, that is the perfection of so-called ownership, for in actuality, we can own nothing in this world.
