  • To Bhaktin Maral,

    Accept my humble obeisance unto your lotus feet.

    What connection exists between taking black pepper daily 7-9 pieces and avoiding the sexual mind?

    Matajit, would like to explain it for the fallen soul like me?

  • Hare Krishna Prabhuji! Dandvat! PAMHO! Radhey! Radhey! Prabhuji first of all this is a very disappointing that u are living very far away from your family to run your livelihood. We can understand that living far away from your family specially wife is very difficult to survive in a positive & peaceful way but it is only for those who are non-devotees or who are not in Krishna Consiouness but if you are a Krishna Devotee and facing this problem then there some lackness and ignorance in your sadhna. I think that you are not taking the Krishna Consiousness in appropriate way. Please follow these steps to avoid nonsense thinking:

    1) Daily get up on time and offer your worship to Lord Shri RadhaKrishna on time.
    2) Cook anything in Prasad and offer it to Lord Shri RadhaKrishna then take the remnants.
    3) Must Read Sri Mad Bhagwatam & Sri Mad Bhagwad Gita daily in the morning or evening.
    4) Must Chant minimum round of Hare Krishna Mahamantra in the morning before leaving to office.
    5) Keep your chanting bread and pouch always with you on your bag and always chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra while going to office or any other place. It not only will help you but also concentrate on your stray mind.
    6) Do not watch any movies or those programme which can influence your sex desire. You can watch Mahabharat or Ramayana, keep yourself update with the news channel or you can watch animal planet. I hope these will help you, if you consider yourself a true devotee of Lord Shri RadheKrishna then just fix your mind in them only rather straying your senses on wrong path.

    One more thing just consider your wife as your first & last soul mate of all your birth and consider rest of the all women as your mataji. I am sure will be save.


    Hare Krishna Prabhuji

        Hare Krishna dear devotee, the sexual desire is completely normal for that body so don't feel bad that you have a strong and healthy body.
        You have a wife that is very good so don't look at other women.
        There is certain things that trigger your absorption in thought of sex acts and you have to work out what triggers you and then avoid those triggers.
        The triggers can be a certain time of the night, a certain place
        And certain people who are very lusty.
        Keep yourself very busy with positive activity and avoid the negative triggers.
        Set goals for study, exercise, work and spirituality, meditation.
        Keep very clean and wake up early and meditate chanting the Holy names.
        If you have such strong libido in your body don't worry about it
        You are what you are and sometimes that's an animal.
        So be humble.
        Oh Krishna, please accept this animal as your eternal servant and purify me.
        I struggle so hard with this senses but I failed, please excuse me.
        In this way continue in KC and as time goes by you will become more and more peaceful.
        When you have such peace by Krishna's grace you will be able to transcended the bodily demand and achieve liberation.
        So please be very very patient and continue chanting with full enthusiasm.
        Within this lifetime you will get full success.
        Don't doubt it!
        The more enthusiastic you are the quicker you will advance in KC.
        So clearly understand it's ok to be troubled by this libido as it's completely natural in this animal like body.
