We can ask favour from anyone, but we must know that nobody can favour us unless sanctioned by the Supreme Person. Suppose we approach rich man to favour us with some contribution. Krishna is there within, and if he says, "You give him this money", the man will give us. If he is not so fortunate now therefore Krishna did not dictate him. So there is nothing to be sorry. This should be our principle.
