Radhanath Swami Speaking on Power and Degradation

If someone has a very big position—King, Prime Minister, President—we should on one level respect them, because somehow or other that person has gotten such immense influence and power, which is coming originally in its pure form from God. But because people do not understand the source of that energy and they’re not using it in His service; generally their very opulence becomes the cause of their degradation and their bondage.
