Hare Krishna Das,
I am writing to ask what the following means, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Could you also explain why Jesus asks us to declare spiritually bankruptcy and then find ourselves filled with the presence of the King and His Kingdom.
Thank you dear prabhu.
your humble servant,

I am only a stumbling servant, but having been in the Christian faith, my understanding of the poor in spirit is one who is weary of this material world and who is humble and God conscious. Jesus is teaching humility and realization of our true position that we are Not God but are His children and that by realization of our true position and surrender to God we can be filled with His presence and return back home to His Kingdom.
I trust this will be of some clarification and finds you well.
your humble God-sister servant and well-wisher

Hare Krsna Prabhu
I have read and heard few things from Christian scriptures.
As per my understanding, the statement means that if a person has the understanding that nothing belongs to them(they are not the controllers, proprietors or enjoyer of anything) in this material world(indicated by poor in spirit), then Krsna(God) is pleased with them and they are on their path back to Godhead.
