Perfection does not exclude materialism


Question: How can I strive to achieve in life what one wants materially and also lasting permanently?

Baba: Yes, it can be done. What does perfection mean if it does not include material life? It is easy and practical. One has only to adopt that life which keeps materialism and spirituality in balance.

How to do that? Lead the worldly life, attend to all your worldly duties, but for some moments in the day, long to know something that is beyond life. This longing will increase gradually, and that will make you free and detached from material results.
