Hare Krishna 🌺


All glories to Srila Prabhupada 🌺🦚

I am a NEET aspirant and devotee. I chant 16 rounds everyday and following the principles.

Should I honour only Prasadam? How to offer Prasadam to krishna?

It is hard for me to have only Prasadam because I have to study too much and also My mother makes food for me. I can only make Prasadam and offer it... On Sundays.

What to do for becoming a devotee like Prabhus Who wear white dhoti and kurta.... And Managing my Student life also??

Please Guide me.

    Brother... Remember, serving parents is something krsna loves... Example is pundalil story.... Nd wat service u cn do is... Study well, press ur moms feet take care of them... U dont need to weae white dhoti to become a devotee... Yup attire is imp... Bt thts nt the only thing... U chant 16 rounds, so y dont u ask ur krsna to show u... Nd u r saying no one neAr u is a devotee.... Then ask krsna... He will find u a good devotee association.... Remember its surrender to lord which is more imp than what u r wearing.... Nd yes... And i hope u will b a grt doc one day... Be thankfull to krsna... and ur parents... Tht they spent thr whole lifes money on ur studies... So serving them is ur duty...

    And about prasadam... Keep small cup of butter or curd or milk... Nd hv it... Nd mix with watevr u eat...the whole thing gets purified... Nd lord loves milk products... So he will b happy... Dont alwys think of hw to b like other devotee... Instead think how to make krsna happy... Nd u will find answers

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    I have read all the posts in this thread. 

    In Class 12, please concentrate on your studies. You are an ambassador of Krsna. So if you get less marks, everyone including family members will say that you went into devotion and didnt spend time on studies. Do well, get into an IIT. MOst IIT in India have active preaching going on. 

    Regarding prasadam, offer whatever is cooked at home veg, without onion garlic. Indicate that you do not want to take onion garlic in food. Do not get into fights at this stage. Concentrate on studies. Even if something is bought from outside or Haldiram etc., offer if it is without onion garlic and have.

    Krsna sees our sincerity and rewards by making our situation conducive. I have learnt that obstacles on the path of bhakti are merely to make our resolve stronger. So please do not get bogged down by these things. Persevere.

    Online sanga is possible. Write to me on inbox, I will add you to my whatsapp group. This is an all India group.

  • Hare Krishna Prabhu,

    Connect with serious iskcon devotees in your school or around.
    Or if you don't have time by internet try to develop a relationship with such a devotee that is your well wisher.
    There is nothing like sadhu sanga and ready Prabhupada's books together

    Your mother is cooking, there is no harm, offer it to Prabhupada and the Lord, she will get benefice and you will too.

    All the best,

    Jaya Prabhupada.

      But I am the only krishna devotee in my family.... i gave up eating Non-vegetarian food a long time ago But it is difficult to give up garlic and onion because my mother cooks food and she include onion garlic almost everytime in meal......and they are not too much in bhakti. They will not leave onion and garlic only because I don't want to have it.

      What should I do in this condition? Please Guide

      • Hare Krishna prabhu ji food with onion garlic or cooked in utensils in which meat onion garlic or fhave been cooked or food of market  is   totally unfit for offering to krishna you can just take food which your mother cook and just wait my family is akso not much in bhakti and i am the only devotee but still with tine they keft onion garlic suddenly you can jyst express you unwill for eating garlic and onion when they will see your unwill they will leave it as krsns inspires meanwhile you can offer cashew and pista mishri and take them with your normal food

      • Hare Krishna Prabhu.
        Please connect with the nearest Iskcon temple, surely they have some contact. Try to find some devotee to read and speak Prabhupada's books together.
