Going Beyond Religious Materialism – Narada Bhakti Sutras, Session Thirteen

Can some individuals seem on the surface level to be engaging in Vedic religious practices, while in actuality having crass materialistic motivations as their goal? As Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya explains in session thirteen of his legendary Narada Bhakti Sutras class, there have always been religious materialists – people who practice religion for the sake of material advancement, gratification of ego, fame and greed. Indeed, it is precisely religious materialism that fuels much of the modern New Age phenomenon, as well as fundamentalism and the prevalence of fraudulent “gurus” today. Sri Acharyaji shows us in his commentary on the Narada Bhakti Sutras how to transcend such crass religious materialism, and how to achieve pure and true spiritual liberation.
