  • Hare Krishna Prabhuji,

    Please remember-every saint was a sinner in the past and every sinner will be a saint in the future.Please try to fill your life with KC as much as possible.Listen to kirtans, read Srila Prabhupada books and above all try to have devotee association.

    Remember in Bhagvad Gita Sri Krishna speaks about 4 types of devotees

    1.Who are curious to know

    2.Who  are distressed

    3.Who have a material gain in mind

    4.One who is a pure devotee.

    Krishna reciprocates to all of these types; though ofcourse #4 is blessed to taste a mellow which the other three can't experience unless they fall into that #4 category.Doesn't matter which category you are right now, pray to krishna for mercy to put you on the right track and one day you will be on right track.

    In India there is a story about Valmiki .Valmiki was a dacoit before he became a saint and when he was asked to chant "rama rama", he couldn't say it due to his previous karmas.He instead chanting "mara mara" which means "died, died". However continuous chanting  of mara mara leads to "rama rama" and by such chanting he was purified.

    Have faith which is the biggest factor. Remember doubt kills everything.Never doubt the lord and his abilities.One day surely you will feel that you remember lord for the love of him and not just for troubles.

    Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances!

    All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    really nice answers, also want to add something.

    Among us who can boldly say that  he or she is was not a sinner???

    We all did something horrible before coming to Krishna Consciousness. As like people wanted to beat a prostitute with stones then Jesus Christ  asked: "Let first stone will be from a person who never did sin!"

    in this way yes, we did sins for many lives and because of that Krishna saves us from those remembrances about our previous lives. Otherwise we could not survive if we really know WHO WE ARE IN THE REALITY.

      Only way is seriously start this Devotional path. With full determination and endeavor. Then only Krishna will be merciful to us and will relive us from those memories.

    We have to start to seriously chant our 16 rounds. It is not a joke! It is battle and we have to become a worriers as like Arjuna.

    To fight is not easy but we have struggle to fight and Krishna will give us strength to fight.

    Your servant, 

  • Hare Krishna komang jaya prabhu


    Don't worry about your past karmas ,our karmas are highly complex,we cannot even imagine their complexity . But when we become devotee of Krishna, he takes full charge of us. He himself assures us several times in Srimad Bhagwad Geeta.

    If you trust Krishna completely then you should not worry at all. Yes but we must be careful in doing karmas now. Thats why we must follow all the regulative principles described by previous acharyas(especially 4 regualtions). We must follow complete Krishna Consciousness. Live for Krishna ..cook for krishna....chant for krishna...do everything for Krishna...thats all. There will be no space for sin in life.

    Chant Hare Krishna and be Happy:

    Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

    Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

    your seravnt
