"Similarly, everyone who is holding Krsna's money, not returning to Krsna, he is a criminal. He will be punished. How they are punished?
That you have seen. In India, in recent... Everywhere, the same thing is going on. There was war between Pakistan and India.
So all the rich men had to contribute fifty lakhs, fifty hundred thousand, according to everyone's capacity.
Many millions of rupees were collected, and it was put into the gun powder, "Svaha!"- So if you don't execute this svaha, then you will have to execute that "svaha!" That's all. The Vietnam is going on -- svaha! So many young men -- svaha! So much money -- svaha!.So much money—svāhā! You have to do that. Therefore better learn how to make svāhā for Kṛṣṇa. Otherwise you will have to make svāhā for māyā."
Srila Prabhupada, San Diego, 1972
