I was asked following question and I could not answer properly.
My family members are against me deciding not to marry in this lifetime and devote/dedicate myself to Krishna's temple service. Hence they asked me following question which I could not answer properly:
If I am at home and I am about to leave for Krishna's important service and suddenly my sister or my mom has a heart attack, should I be going to krishna's service or should I take my sister/mom to hospital?
Since I heard many stories where many exaulted devotees gave more importance to Krishna's service than human service, I wanted to answer that I will leave home for Krishna's service and will not attend sister/mom.
But my family members are so much attached to each other, they did not like/accpet my answer and my attatitude and they say that since I am human being my first job is to serve human beings.
Can anyone tell me what Krishna would want and what Prabhupadaji would have answered to such question?
Hare Krishna, Hari Bol
