Dear Mani,

>>is a detached, unmaterialistic
life religiously necessary? Is it possible? If so, how does one
go about it? To what extent should one pursue wealth, if one
is truly desirous of liberation?
I invite thoughtful responses from all members, including
those outside the sampradAya.

Will you kindly accept this as an answer for the thought provoking question 
raised by you in your last posting??

I guess "Vairaagyam" has to be slowly built and it cannot happen all of a sudden 

For whatever so called miseries in life is owing to the fact that we dont follow 
our "Swadharma" ...

But in "Kali yuga" is it possible???

You do need money to survive...
