Hare Krishna, please accept humble obeisances... 

I have been suddenly worn one round of tulsi neck beads... and I have trouble quitting onion and garlic...(although I've quitted onions and garlic for 3-4 months before wearing it)... I can't take it out too, as anyone who takes out the tulsi kanthi mala after wearing it for some time is considered to be a Visnu-drohi... May I offer any foodstuffs during emergencies to the Lord, after separating the onion and garlic completely, and will the Lord help remove the sins for eating the food mixed with onions and garlics, if I  'beg' Him to remove the sins for offering Him the food and wearing the tulsi kanthi mala while eating the food? (I've followed the 4 regulative principles for the same period of time I began to quit onions and garlic completely,3 to 4 months) 


Please help this insignificant soul... 


Your humble servant, 

Krishna Hari Dasa

  • Hare Krishna,please accept humble obeisances...

    Thanks for the answers... I have no more trouble with quitting onions and garlic... 





  • Prabhuji has raised a very pertinent point which I am also facing, of not being able to quit onion and garlic on account of family compulsions

    • and can I separate the onion and garlic completely in the food and offer to the Lord, just to hope that the material modes of nature would diminish and the food becomes sinless and karma free? 

    • but what if mother Srimati Tulsi Maharani gets offended because I ate food mixed with onions and garlic, although I can separate it completely and eat the rest?

        • so, the Lord would accept the offering of food after I've separated the onions and garlic, right?
