Q: Why does you movement criticize technology and at the same time make use of it?

A: We do not criticize or condemn technology. We criticize what it is used for and the attitude that science and technology are the only important things in the world. Science and technology are means to an end, tools which are helpful if properly used, harmful otherwise. Properly used means that they are used in the service of the Supreme Lord, Krishna. The material world and everything in it belongs to Krishna and everything should therefore be used for His pleasure. We think people would be happier if life were materially simpler, if they had fewer distractions from concentration on their relationship with Lord Krishna, but we take the world as we find it. Utility is the principle.
