Jayapataka Swami: I don’t think there is much difference from your question and the previous child’s question. The child, he studies in a secondary school. You study in university. Situation is same. You think that your education is for you to serve Krsna. Either for having a better job or using your education in Krsna’s service, see the process of bhakti yoga as the system of yukta vairagya. That means vairagya, by using whatever you have in the service of Krsna. Normally, vairagya they think that means give everything up, just meditate or something. Yukta vairagya you use your education, you use the situation for Krsna, for the service of Krsna. If you always remember Krsna and never forget Him, then your education will also be an offering to Krsna. We have in various universities bhakti yoga clubs and different kinds of clubs. So you can help coordinate such youth programs. To give youths an idea, what is the real purpose of life, who we really are. Thank you very much.
