I eventually took initiation into the Pushti Marg Sampradaya about a year or two afterwards.

Quotes

Do not be attached to wealth, but protect it, without considering it to be the highest thing in life. In this Kali Yuga, the age of struggle, a person can lose devotional fortitude in a moment. If you do not protect your assets, they will disappear, which will be disheartening and painful. Do not cherish wealth for your own pleasure, but consider it to be the Lord’s, and look after it for the sake of His worship. — Shri Gopeshwarji, Shiksha Patra 1.5
