When I was in the Denver temple as a brahmacārī, everyone had a locker and I’d go to my locker about once a month and I would take everything out and put it on the floor on a cloth – first my japa beads, then my Bhagavad-gītā, then tilaka, then two dhotīs, two shirts, and maybe one pen and some paper. Any extra thing that I had collected I would just leave it. So I was practicing brahmacārī life—not accumulating many things. But then I became a sannyāsī, and after that, I needed one truck to carry all my things! In the beginning, Kṛṣṇa wants to see, ‘Can you renounce everything?’ and if He is satisfied you can give up everything, then He supplies you more for your service.
Like Śrīla Prabhupāda – when he was a householder he had a house in Kolkata and he was father to a few children. When he gave that up, he became father to the whole world and he got 5000 children. He had children in every country all around the world. If you can renounce something for Kṛṣṇa, He can supply you a thousand times more your necessity.
