Jayapataka Swami: The unfortunate thing is that some persons think that financial gain is the goal of life! But even if one has enough finance, they don’t know what their next life would be. So we get money according to your previous karmas and by doing bhakti yoga you may get some additional good karma but that is not the real purpose of bhakti yoga. Bhakti yoga is meant for us to develop our relationship with Krsna so that we don’t take birth again. Even if you have money, when you leave, you leave the money behind and you take a new birth. So whether that birth is in heaven or hell, whether that birth is human or animal, that will depend on their karma. But if you do bhakti yoga, you will definitely not see another birth, under normal circumstances. I don’t know how to make this understood by your family members. Since they are fully absorbed in financial matters. But in due course of time we hope that they would understand.
