Hare Krishna everyone!
Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I would say that I'm a fairly new devotee. I've been practicing Krishna Consciousness for about two months already, and I've been given a single strand of tulasi neck beads that was offered and then placed around my neck. I swore to follow the 4 regulative principles, however, there are times when I stumble in one of them. There was a time I stumbled so much that I felt that I didn't deserve the beads and couldn't follow the regulative principles and removed them. But right now, I decided to follow again because I really want to devote myself to Krishna, and I started wearing the beads again because I think it helps me stay consistent and most of all reminds me that I am Krishna's.
I think I'm overthinking things, but please tell me how I reconcile myself with Krishna when I break a regulative principle and if it's ok if I removed neck beads and started wearing them again.
