Mode of passion…

Hare Krsna!  All glories to Srila Prabhupada! My question is about my bedroom where I spend most my time.  I have my Moms boxes all over in it. It's pretty cramped.  Am I saturated in the mode of passion cause of it?  Thanks!  Hare Krsna!

  • Hare Krishna,

    Chant outside in the greenary open air ..whole space is yours. Go for a walk and chant if you feel home is too crowded. 

     Try to organise and create space. You can do that.  Decluttering makes your mind also clear of all bad thoughts and positive energy flows in. 

    I make it a point to clean my home every 15 days ( deep cleaning). removing old things which I don't use and giving to Goodwill. Donate some old stuff always good. Poor can use it and you get some good karma also in that way. thorw away what isn't needed. It is must.  Because I know we develop attachments to some stuff and we cannot throw them out, but It is always better to cut some things out of our lives which maybe useful for others. There are so many homeless people who are need of clothes and food.

    Check your pantry some foods are getting spoiled., some clothes which you have outgrown. Some books which you no longer read.  Some old collection items they maybe important for you but they lost the value now with time... As you don't even have time to look at them at all all this while... but you always treasure them and cannot throw them away. So, do clean the home part by part. That is must. Because...Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Once you do that you create positive atmosphere. You will lose some attachments to certain things and you learn to move on.

    For that you need to spare time and energy and have to exert urself and make decision to get rid of things which you are not using anymore. This will be tough but you have to do it. If you want positivity at home and peacefulness. lighten and brighten. 

    When we get attached to certain things in life it surely denotes mode of passion only because you greedily hankering over stuff and cannot get rid of that attachments. When you share that to all it become mode of Satva. Share it donate to Goodwill and Salvation army. Donate food which you don't use to homeless. You will see positivity and breeze at home.

    Hare Krishna.

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    Mode of passion or ignorance is as per our consciousness. If the boxes are making the place cramped, logical solution is to move them somewhere else. If that is not possible, then live with it. THat does not determine your mode. I dont you if you have visited India and sees the bhajan kutirs of any of the acharyas. It used to be really small. 


    YOur servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD

    • Thankyou Radha.  I really appreciate that!  What does DD mean?  Hare Krsna!
