Dear Prabhuji's and Mataji's,
Hare Krishna. Please accept My Humble obeisances!
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I am 24 Years old working in MNC. I have lot of questions in my mind and would like to share one of them and looking for suggestions as i am not able to understand the situation.. What to do and what not. Possibly i can get answers here.
When i first went to Vrindavan in April this year i was thinking it would just be a regular trips to Temple or any the sacred place but taking part in Mangla aarti and sitting in ISKCON infront of the supreme LORD i felt so quiet and peace within which i cannot even explain.
I did not even know when i get so close with Krishna ji that i now go there every month and do japas every day. I am also doing sewa for Bal Gopal ji at my home.
My family and friends are not supporting in this as they think i am being mad as i was an agnostic person who used to go to parties and had habbit like cig, booze, eating meat an everything.
I have left everything now but yes to be honest i m still struggling with the cigarettes which i know i will overcome very soon.
My family is very concerned and worried that why i am being like this and why i have changed myself now. They do believe in GOD but the way i believe they don't understand that.
whenever i go Vrindavan i don't feel like coming back but i had to come forcefully. I go to nearby ISKCON TEMPLE once in a week and sit there for hours which again my family doesn't like.
I am getting unfavorable response from my friends too as they criticize a lot when they see me chanting and stuff. If anyone here can tell me what needs to be done to make my family understand as i do not want to leave them as they say i don't give them enough time which is needed.
Please if anything that i have to do from myself let me know.
Hare Krishna !
