Hare Krishna All,
In all the families that I met who are into ISKCON have very serious family problems or personal problems.
They do not discuss them and try to project them as happy devotees. Recently, I had discussion with a
devotee with whom I got inspired once and came to know that he went through a divorce and gone through serious
mental issues pre and post divorce. 95% of the Girls or boys who are married to devotees are not happy. Devotees
are becoming more fanatic than devotional. Even among devotee marriages people are happy for an while and then
problems start emerging. Why are we turning into more complicated beings. I completely agree there are some
families who are tied together and leading happy Krishna consious life. I know this happens with materialistic people
as well but it is more evident among devotees. Where are we going wrong. I am bringing this point forward because
I saw a girl who is married to a devotee attempted suicide because of his behaviour and negligence. ISKCON has
bad reputation of disrupting family life and these incidents adds fuel to pre existing notion. There are many other
such incidents which shatter our faith but I dont want to discuss them. I only want to know why people behave
abnormally after becoming devotee and think they are elevated and have more intelligence to rule over others emotions.
My request to all devotees to be humble and caring instead of treating your friends, family and new comers as neophytes.
Remember we are representing ISKCON and our behaviour can defame the organisation.
Note: To admin, There is a high possibility that you delete my discussion as you did previously but please let people know that problem and discuss.
Please help in getting answers to the problems dont delete the discussions which need to be discussed. It gives an impression that we are here
for making money out of others faith.
