Yukta Vairagya Technology and the Internet for Krishna’s service

“When one is not attached to anything, but at the same time accepts everything in relation to Krishna, one is rightly situated above possessiveness. On the other hand, one who rejects everything without knowledge of its relationship to Krishna is not as complete in his renunciation.”
Bhakti rasamrita sindhu 2.255-256

This verse explicitly describes the path of renunciation known as Yukta Vairagya. Originally established by Srila Rupa Goswami, following the path of Yukta Vairagya means that we should not renounce material attachments by denying them, but rather we should use them in service of the Lord. Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta exemplified Yukta Vairagya when he established the Gaudiya Math and decided to make book publication one of the institution’s primary means for spreading Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s message all over the world. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta saw books and the work of publishing not as material objects and actions to be given up, but rather as tools he could use to serve the Lord.
