how to not give up

hare krishna!

all glories to srila prabhupada.

yet another hurdle my way, my parents just spoke to me due to the poor marks now they are telling me that if i dont give up bhakti that is stop doing pooja (they said they are clearing the panaphelia and evryting the whhole pooja room by tomorrow ) and stop goingto mandir , stoop lighting diya , stop celebrating festivals, stop chanting, stop talking about god. if i dont do the above they are telling me they wont put me in an collage they are saying if u want to study give up everything or else dont even pray. they are saying im abnormal from society and im not acting per my cast(kshtriyas) and even the brahmanas near by are telling dont do pooja pat listen to ur parents and get into good clg. is there a way out of this misery. all this pressure. im so so so broken confusted and deeplu hurt with all the back lashes and also my un expected score of 73.

plz tell me something i can do to get out of theis situation 

hari bol!

    • hare krishna!

  • Also, this book may give you some solace. The Transcendental Teachings of Prahlada Maharaja. My initiating Spiritual Master is Nsrimhadeva Himself and He gave me a wonderful personal Darshan and initiated me when I asked Krishna for initiation in Jesus Name. You probably know the story of Prahlada Maharaja and Lord Nsrimhadeva, as we sing the Nsrimhadeva Prayers in the morning in the Temple. A good alternative to college for you would be to find a Temple community. Do away with material attachments and renounce the world, and love for Krishna, and come Home, Back to Godhead, while taking others back with you by your devotion. Here is the book: . May all of Krishna's Blessings be upon you. Hare Krishna.

    • thanks a lot prabhuji ! the issue is that in indian iskcon temples they want a minimum degree to join in temple. i had been to temple, and asked to stay there but they councled and sent me back. and even if i manage to go to the temple, my parents will goto the cops since im a minor and they wont let me live in peace, my family has a lot of political hold inmy place now.

      • Just take the time to turn 18 and then join a Temple if you can. Also it is not Krishna Consciousness to force someone to get a degree to join a Temple. You may or may not need initiation, but a degree is not neccessary or even helpful, even Prabhupad in the Bhagavad-Gita mentions University degrees are not helpful in understanding Krishna. So don't listen to nonsense. Get some real information from your local Temple or find a good Temple to join with patience. That is my advice. Haribol.

        • hare krishna!

  • Don't listen to nonsense. Your college isn't nearly as important as your devotional service. I personally am a Ksatriya and I chant all the time, on and off beads. You need to live for yourself and for Krishna. Modern society and it's demoniac irreligious principles are hurting God. If you want to be be a good person, let the dead bury their own dead, and you, come follow me, in Jesus Name. Hare Krishna.
