“Lord Caitanya had rich devotees, poor devotees and He showed that the poor devotee didn’t have to become rich to become liberated, to become fully blessed by Him. Simply he had to keep his devotional service going strong. Similarly, those who were the rich devotees, He didn’t ask them to give up their wealth, but to use it for expanding Krishna consciousness. But they would maintain their same standard of living. But the real thing that Caitanya Mahaprabhu was always seeing was their consciousness. Was their consciousness fully attached to His lotus feet or not? Therefore we should train our mind to simply grab on the lotus feet of Nitai Gaura.”
