Guru Maharaj: By spiritual knowledge, we can avoid materialistic things. Krsna surya saman, maya hoi andhakara, jahan Krsna hoi, tahan mayar nahi adhikar – . where there is Krishna, He is like the sun, there is no darkness. And material life is like darkness. In order to eradicate the darkness, we need to bring in the light of Krishna. That will naturally solve the problem. But for new devotees, it is hard for them to understand what is spiritual, what is material. And that is why they need more knowledge, so that they can understand the difference. It is not very difficult, but it is a new way, we are not used to thinking.
