Eating sattvic Food

Hare Krishna Prabhuji / Mataji,

Dandavat Pranam

My humble obeisances unto your lotus feet

Due to my poor work schedule i am enable to do the chanting properly and i get access sleep. I feel restless the whole day and it affects my devotional service to Krishna for which i have decided to change my diet to a proper sattvic food which will not contain milk products and oily food but Krishna loves food made from milk so does that mean i am thinking about my body?

    Hare Krsna mataji,


    Satvik food means without onion garlic. Please offer to Krsna and have whatever you are eating, regardless of whether cooked by devotee or not.  Milk and cow milk ghee is actually good for health. 

    Only by chanting can one improve chanting. Try to fix a time when you chant. Do not do any other activity when you chant. If possible, join an online chanting group. 


    Your servant,

  • Hare Krsna Mataji,

    That is good thing that you have given importance to one aspect of bhakti that is eating satvik prasad, and ideal satvik prasad would include cow milk,ghee etc . Another thing you are missing out is you are not reading and hearing the importance of chanting. That is human psychology when you hear importance/ mahatmya of something you are more inclined to take time out for that acitvity? why not chant to get out this jail(material world) and make it your last birth here?

      No prabhuji its not like that because i want to attentively do the chanting i want to move towards sattvic food. Naam mahima is very greater which is not properly happeing due to the work schedule.

      • Bhakti means sacrifice, nidra chadi uth jiva, wake up early. I have seen  working devotees chanting 6 to 8 am before going to office and finish chanting at night till 11 o clock before sleeping. Low determination what else?
