I don’t care at all, because I am not a politician. Politicians care about numbers. It is politics of numbers: how many numbers you have, that makes you that much powerful.
Does it have anything to do with money – the more sannyasins you have, the more wealth your…
We have enough wealth. And certainly more sannyasins will bring more wealth, but we already have more than we need.
And I am not against wealth. I am not a worshiper of poverty. I hate it.
The major bank that the various organizations deal with here cut you off, so to speak. You can’t have visa cards used here any more or there’s a good chance you won’t for a short time, at any rate at the First Interstate Bank. And your checking account may be canceled. What’s your reaction to that? If you’re so wealthy…
It is not any concern of me. I have not even heard about it. It is you who are saying to me, so I don’t know anything about it.
My people are enough intelligent, they will manage it. And not only one bank, many banks are asking to serve the commune. So if one bank cuts, they are cutting their own neck.
How would you feel about starting your own bank here?
That is possible.
I’ve heard the idea brought up.
Yes? Thank you!
