Jai Srila Prabhupada
Jai Radhe Shyam!
Prabhu ji's and Mata ji's!!
Please help me:
1) I am eating onion-garlic-spices etc as I cannot cook. If I want to cook, My parents will stop me as I have more important work- academics. SO, I am not able to control lust, anger, material desires. I am not able to purify my existence. I feel myself in rajas and tamas guna. Please give me some temporary ideas to stay away from lust and material desires as long as I do not eat Krsna Prasadam except on Ekadasi.
2) I have posted about Lord Siva as greatest Vaishnava and Durga Devi as Great Vaishnavi on facebook. Now every week or day or month, Shaktas, shaivas and smartas want to argue. What should I do? Block them or argue. I don't feel to argue as my mind becomes contaminated in their virtual association. Please help.
3) Which mantra is more merciful?
Hare Krsna mahamantra or Vaishnava pranama mantra because I want relief from sinful desires and laziness. I like Vaishnava pranama mantra because I have attained material favour and spiritual profit by it.
Thanks. Hari Bol
