Hare Krsna Bhavana Didi,
Earliar , I also have the same problem. I am introvert actually. So, I talked to very senior deevotees regarding this.They asked me to talk more to the material persons also but dont try to adopt their activities. I am studying in BITS- Pilani & there is no devotee here, so here I talk to many people, atleast I say Hi & Hello to everyone.
By doing this, at some proper time I use to tell something about Krsna to them.
I guess u r living in Delhi(actually, I am also from Delhi). Try to visit Greater Kailash Temple on Week-ends & most important talk with some devotees in that temple.
Plz remember one thing,just by going to temple frequently will not help u to elevate in Krsna Consciousness.
U must come in contact with some pure devotees.
According to our authorities, u shud not read Srimad Bhagvatam at this stage.
First go through Bhagvad Gita-As It Is scrutinisingly , then come to this Bhagvatam.
Srila Prabhupad said- Bhagvatam is so pure that you will not be able to appreciate it without properly understanding Bhagvad Gita.
Srila Prabhupad said,"Bhagvad Gita is 12th Standard, Bhagvatam is Graduation & Chaitanya Charitamrata is Post Graduation"
Hare Krishna dear Devotees please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Dear Bhawna Arora Mataji, yes, to be in the association of non devotees is little bit difficult.
If You do not speak too much then it means You can think nicely. So it is very good if we train our mind to think of Krishna by chanting Maha Mantra or by praying. You can find nice prayers in song book.
If Your job is connected with computer job or You work mostly sitting then try to read books. Or if Your job is running here and there then better choice is to listen lectures.
Try to be respectful with even non devotees talking with nice speech and trying Your best to help them whatever good they request.
And main thing even if Your job is far more from spirituality, (for example, accounting or etc.) then even though think that Krishna ordered You to be an accountant because of that i am working. Not because that some bosses ordered me BUT KRISHNA! :-)
According what Dhananjay Prabhu told about books.
Please, forgive me Prabhu, but in one lecture His Holiness Srila Radhanatha Swami Maharaja was asked a question "if Srila Prabhupada gave any order for reading His books". Then Maharaja told that no.
We can read Srimad Bhagavatam or Nectar of Devotion, or Bhagavad Gita...But not the 10th chapter of Srimad Bhagavatam directly. But we must read Srimad Bhagavatam.
Reading books is very powerful! Srila Prabhupada told that even if one person reads only a word from these books then one will achieve love for Godhead.
actually I meant that without understanding Bhagvad Gita, one will not be able to appreciate Bhagvatam.
I thought that Bhavana Mataji has not read BG & she is directly reading Bhagvatam
Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances! all glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Dhananjay Prabhu, yes, You are right to read book starting from Bhagavad Gita is very helpful. But i told that it is not must. But it is very recommended to read them as You told. again i ask forgiveness for disturbing Your thoughts!
Hare Krsna Maral Mataji, Its ur humbleness to say like this.
Plz pardon me, if I had done some mistake.
Hare Krishna dhananjay prabhu..
as u recommended 2 read Bhagvad Gita firstly..so nw m a bit confused as m reading Shrimad Bhagvatam..what shud i do? shud i leave Shrimad Bhagvatam in between and start reading Bhagvad Gita?..plz help..
Hare Krsna dear Bhawna Mataji, Reading Bhagvad Gita is not my recommendation, its the recommendation of Srila Prabhupad & we should MUST FOLLOW the instructions of Srila Prabhupad as it is.
So, now u start studying(not reading) Bhagvad Gita very srutinisingly.
U should just focus on Bhagvad Gita right now, not on Srimad Bhagvatam.
Have faith in the words of Prabhupad!!!
U will surely relish Bhagvatam once u understand Bhagvad Gita.
Together with this, U should listen basic lectures on Bhagvad Gita & on other KC topics, by listening lectures u'll surely progress exponentially on spiritual Path.
Again, plz take care that u shud not listen lectures on any topic at this time.
Go systematically, from the beginning.
Plz get in touch with some devotee soon.
Let us pray for the progress of each other on this spiritual path.
i like to read Bhagavad Gita in the early morning after my rounds and Srimad Bhagavatam in the evening because Srimad Bhagavatam is more detailed and i spend more time on Srimad Bhagavatam. very interesting :-)
