Namaste Sir,

The difference is this:  Since Vishnu (The all pervading Consciousness) is
my very svarupam, the contemplation frees me.  Since crorepati is not my
svarupam there is no use constantly thinking I am Mukesh Ambani.  But in
the modern world, a person who wants to become a crorepati benefits from
the lessons Mukesh Ambani's life teaches.
