My respectful obeisances to all Vaishnavas. One important issue is being introduced by me by the mercy of my beloved spiritual master Srila Prabhupad.
Question asked below is the situation faced by me many times in my life while preaching & trying to cultivate people in Krishna Consciousness.
Many times, during our preaching hours we meet with some pious man or woman or family. Here "pious" means that the concerned person is not reluctant to Krishna Consciousness, generally not engaged in major sinful activities & most importantly,they are listening to us very interestingly.
We spend some time with them, give them some Prasadam & books, invite them for temple festivals etc. Then by a phone call, we arrange 2-3 meetings with them in order to cultivate them. Then-after we introduce chanting of holy names of the Lord. At those moments, we are generally not conscious about Krishna or Srila Prabhupad but we have a high level of anxiety to make "that person/those people" Krishna Conscious. In days & nights, many time we think of them & try to draft out a plan to make them to chant.
If by investing a good amount of time & energy by preacher, they don't become Krishna Conscious, then preacher's heart breaks down.
Is this right to be conscious of any person except Krishna & his pure devotees just for sake of preaching? What should be our proper attitude while preaching & giving people final touch to chant? If after lots of endeavor, someone don't become interested in KC, then what should be our reaction? What should be a legitimate limitation of efforts invested on a single person?
Summary of Question: Sometimes it becomes highly difficult to be Krishna Conscious while preaching to a potential person having good chances to become a Krishna Devotee & as a preacher we put our life and soul to make him devotee at any cost & meanwhile we forget Krishna & Srila Prabhupad completely.
