Swami answers questions of Shri Bharath Krishna

1. Will stay in other’s house on their invitation form Runaanubandha with them?

[Shri Bharath Krishna asked:Requesting Swami to kindly answer my questions. Padamaskaram Swami, If I stay in other’s house for some days as a guest, will I form Runaanubandha (debt bond) with them? Will I form Runaanubandha if my visit to their house is due to their invitation?]

Swami replied:- If they invite you, there is no Runaanubandham due to which, you need not pay anything to them. But, if you go as a guest, you must pay them through a form that is required by them. In such a case, the best way is to give money as a gift because we don’t know their actual need.

2. Will the devotee who receives some service from another devotee form Runaanubandha?

[Swami, You teach us that devotees should serve other devotees if Human Incarnation is not available. In such case, will the devotee who is receiving some service or money from another devotee form Runaanubandha? Thank You so much for patiently answering all of my questions. Your servant, Bharath Krishna.]

Swami replied:- When you are serving other devotees, there is no question of Runaanubandha in this matter because you are serving them based on their poverty condition and needs.
