Why sometimes graph of devotion to God Shri Krishna vs material gains is not straight?

Why sometimes graph of devotion to God Shri Krishna vs material gains is not straight?

Some people complain to God Shri Krishna that despite their devotion to him, they are not getting materially elevated. After getting frustrating from material losses they slow down the pace of devotion to God Shri Krishna or stop the worship of God.

Let's take an example of a classroom. A classroom has 40 students. Whenever the teacher asks a question then brilliant ones or students sitting on front seats raises their hand more often to answer the question. Next time onwards, teacher usually ask these students to answer the question because he has seen their devotion to studies.

Similarly, devotee is more dear to God Shri Krishna although he is not partial to anybody and he has full focus on his devotees and he provide them intelligence sitting in their heart as a super soul with which they can come to him. Some devotee has bad karma accumulated over many births and which is an impediment to their material growth and prosperity in this birth. God give them preference like best students by helping them suffer with low intensity to clear bad karma accumulated otherwise they are eligible to suffer more for their bad karma. God by his mercy first made them suffer to clear bad karma as you can not attain God with heavy load of bad Karma. If you are suffering despite your devotional service then you should come on the conclusion that you have a heavy load of bad karma which has accumulated over many births and God Shri Krishna is offloading bad karma from your bag and making it light for you to get his benediction and blessing.

PURE CONSCIOUSNESS

PURE CONSCIOUSNESS
Here God Krishna is saying to Arjuna that to be in pure transcendental consciousness, a person must give up all the varieties of sense gratifications which arise from engagement of senses as per urges of satisfaction of gratifications on the direction of mind which is not stable and wandering here and there and which is the friend and enemy of a person. 

Mind is our friend if we can control it and mind is our enemy if we allow ourselves to be controlled by it. These urges for the satisfaction of material sense gratification arise because of the tendency of mental concoction in us which make us believe something which is not true. 

It is just like if we add different ingredients in a new way to make some new meal. Our mind tends mental concoction as it picks some part of the story from somewhere and remaining parts from some other stories and presents a new picture in front of us which appears to be astonishing but in reality, the new picture is far from reality however…

Pious Manners

Pious Manners 
There is a chain of events to reach soul happiness. It starts from good thoughts and good thoughts lead to good manners and it leads to the pious mind and which leads to soul happiness. 


It is in the company of Saints/sages/good people that we generate or inculcate good thoughts. A good company is the requisite for self-realization. The biggest hindrance to self-realization is arrogance and pride. Humility is the most important factor for self-realization. The way you thought the way you work. Keep your thought pure to do goods actions which leads to good habits or manners. Thoughts engrossed in material things leads to unhappiness. Godly thoughts are our real Saviours. Bad thoughts are like seeds of thorn yielding plants.

Keep a vigil on the three main sense organs such as eyes, mouth, ear. Engage these sense organs in devotion to God or else they will drag you down to hell. Whatever we hear, see, or speak has a tremendous effect on our mind and consciousness. Engage ear …

Brahman is non-destructive and exists eternally without any change. Karma creates the material bodies of living entities. Karma forces us to take a new body after our death. It may be a body of human, bird, animal, or any demigod depending on the consciousness in which we left our last breath. We keep the remembrance of God in our entire life so that at the last moment of our life, we should not miss the chance to go back to where we actually belong and that is the abode of the home of our God. 

Hear, remember, the chant holy name of God isthree pillars of our life of spiritual realization. The material nature is consistently undergoing changes. Change is the bitter truth of life. We should not get ourselves attached to the material world consisting of our family, society, nation, relatives, bank balance, home, property, and other material things otherwise we will feel immense pain when a constant and continuous change of material nature will snatch these things from us.
