JAI ACHARYAS, VAISHNAVAS, BHAKTI MATA, LORD AND ENERGIES
Hare Krishna Prabhu jis and Mata jis!
Please help me.
Jai Acharyas Hari Bol what should I do? My material family don't want me to at all become devotee. They go on blaspheming and criticising Bhakti Devi and Vaisnavas. My whole family thinks that religion means getting money, power, etc from demigods. They are polytheists. Liberation and Bhakti are done by pretenders according to them. They never want any member to become devotee or even jnani.
They think family and karma to be greater than Suddha Bhakti, Bhagavan. Parents are greater than God as they say but it is not true for parents who can't deliver children from birth and death. They instead want to entagle me in good karma. Even it is not good karma. They just want to perform duties, get material profits and blessings. They are not austere, truthful, merciful, etc. They are rude, angry, selfish, greedy, illusionised, etc. Please suggest me what to do. I have no means of livelihood by myself. I usually shut my ears when they criticise Bhakti devi. They also equate demigods with Lord Hari. PLEASE SAVE ME FROM VAISNAVA APARADHA.
How should I behave with them? Life in this Body is Seventeen years and more.
They give argument that God is everywhere. You should not be irritated. They want to blaspheme and at the same time expect respect. I am bewildered. They also say that hell, heaven, religion are mind's creation. It differs. How much mayavdi they are? They are full of smartavada.
Also, How is Lord everywhere? How he is not everywhere according to Gaudiya Vaishnavism?
Please help me.
