    Hare Krsna Rahul prabhu,


    How to engage immediately in KC - very simple. The very thought that I would like to lead a life of Krsna Consciousness is the beginning. She has to chant Hare Krsna Mahamantra on bead if possible. If not possible to chant on beads, let her just utter the mahamantra as many times as she can and as often as she can.

    She has to ensure that daily, something is offered to the lord, which is fed to her family. That will take care of husband objections in the long run. 

    If she can, let her read Srila Prabhupada books. Atleast start by reading Bhagavad Gita As It is. Daily, simply reading.

    This much is enough for now. Then we can take it forward as per yoru inputs on progress.


    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD

  • Hare Krishna,

    When Srila Prabhupada came first time to USA. No one appreciated and welcomed new religion. People opposed him. He faced a lots and lots of criticism. This is common but sticking to our belief is most important. When any Elephant walks there are many dogs barking. If you stop to throw stones at every dog that barks then you will be lost in your mission. ISKCON's mission is only to spread Sri Krishna's name. Now, Lord Sri Krishna is world wide know and the name of Sri Krishna is household name In USA and many other foreign countries,  only because of the Sacrifice and surrender to the mission of SriLa Prabhupada by many followers...  I don't think there is any true Vaishnava saint  as Srila Prabhupada who has done such a great sacrifice in propagating Vaishnavism all around the globe. Today what ISKCON  is all because of One man behind everything. His ideas and goals. This is truly a great wonder of wonders. You can say only one thing. Lord Sri Krishna Chaitanaya Empowered Srila Prabhupada in undertaking this task of spreading Sri Krishna's name to all freely. This was Sri Krishna Chaitanaya Mahaprabhu's manobhistam ( He wanted this to happen) when He started congregational chanting and spreading Lord's name to all poor, untouchables, lame people, high class , low class.,. everybody got to taste the nectar of Lord's name. This is the main idea why Lord Sri Krishna Chaitanaya appeared also. His main goal in life was only spreading Lord's name to all., freely distributed Krishna prema. And this was very grandly successfully carried forward by Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada worked and sacrificed his entire life for one cause to satisfy Lord Krishna Chaitanaya Mahaprabhu's manobhistam ( Lord Chaitanaya Mahaprabhu's dream).

    If one is fully convinced about a system or believes in a system thoroughly then there is belief in the Guru ( Acharaya) and Guru Paramapara. Then only there is some way out from  this clutches of the material world.  

    One who criticises a vaishnava can go no where. There is no chance for then to get any liberation. 

    Coming to Your aunt I was remembering today of Sant Sakhubai. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Panduranga Vittala. She was married to atheist family who opposed her pooja and didn't allow her to even keep the deity of Lord Krishna. She still kept a small Lord Krishna's deity and prayed to it everyday. The mother inlaw tried to even demolish and throw away the deity itself.  But whenever she tried the deity returned back to the place. Such was the bhakti of Sakhubai. Lord loved her so much that inspite of all the ctiticsm and torture which her mother inlaw gave her. Lord always helped her. One time Sakhubai wanted to go to Pandharpur temple and she was not given permission my her inlaws. She cried and prayed to Lord. so Lord arranged in such a way that she was able to reach Pandaripur and take darshan of Vittalnath while... Lord Sri Krishna Himself became Sakhubai and served her mother inlaw and changed her totally. Mother inlaw also started to see good in her daughter in law. 

    See, Where there is a willl there is way. Lord also sees and tests your amount of surrender. On this path there is always opposition and always critics always there will be troublemakers. But ture Lord's devotees don't care for the dogs barking. 9196658682?profile=RESIZE_710x

    Hare Krsna

    Her husband don't like that and talk opposite of iskcon.

    First we have to be clear of these 2 - Process and organization. Krsna consciousness process is the best way to perfect our life. Iskcon is one of the many organizations that promote practice of Krsna consciousness or bhakti. The process and organization although integrated are different. 

    If her husband has issues with Iskcon, that should not be a problem. She can still chant Hare Krsna mahamantra. And also these days most temples are closed due to lockdown and she neednot even visit temple for chanting.

    If her husband has issues with chanting of Hare Krsna then it has to be addresses philosophically. Like does he not believe in any god or believes in some particular demigod or like that.
