Hare Krishna,

Can someone give some examples on how below points can be implemented smoothly in one's life while doing one's regular day-to-day duties ? Any pointers, suggestion would help. Thank you.

Purport BG18.65: 

Life should be so molded that one will always have the chance to think of Krsna. One should always act in such a way that all his daily activities are in connection with KrsnaHe should arrange his life in such a way that throughout the twenty-four hours he cannot but think of Krsna.

One can get infected by transcendental disease, only in the association of Lord or in the association of those who are already infected. There is no other way.


Hare Krsna,

You should strive to read and chant everyday of course. Also converse with devotees in person or through mediums such as this website. As for other activities anything can be offered to Krsna. What do you do for a living? What hobbies do you enjoy? No matter what you do all day every day do it as an offering to Krsna and surrender the results to Him.

Your servant,


Thank you. I feel i am not pure enough, because till now I do not feel the urge to search for a right Guru who can take me to Krishna. I am thinking inside that Krishna will create that urge when there is right time; I still need to purify myself. So far I am not qualified enough to identify my right Guru. Is this thinking right ? If not, I pray you devotees to please point out the problem and what should be the right approach ?

I am not in a position to offer all to Krishna, so i am doing selective offering. And once I start some work, I remember Him, but I forget Him when I am in the middle of it, when fully concentrated on the work. So what is the immediate medicine I should try to recover from these diseases ? Please guide. 

Hare Krishna Everyone,

Please do not withdraw your mercy; be pleased by your own mercy. Prabhuji, please help clarifying those above questions (available in my last reply) from this ignorant child, even though it may actually be a futile inquiry.

Thanks and Regards,

I live in an area where there are no other devotees so I feel I can not give you proper guidance on finding a guru. I will say this though. I read an excerpt of something Prabhupada said once. He said that the guru's instructions are the same as the guru so if you have Prabhupada's books then he is your spiritual master.
As far as forgetting Krsna in the middle of your work there is no immediate medicine. Just continue reading, chanting, following the four regulative principles, and your devotional service. It is a process and will not happen all at once but if you are determined you will see improvement. Prabhupada says to continue with steady determination no matter how many times we fail. It is like a muscle that has to be exercised to grow strong. Slowly you will be able to lift more and more.

Your servant

Thank you very much. May Krishna give everyone, including this fallen one, all the energy to pray to Him with utmost love and affection. I will try my best regularly even though I keep failing. 

Thanks a lot.

U can surround urself with spiritual stimulants(uddipans) .these will remind u of krsna.

Example:- u can hav friends at ur office whu are favorable toward religion, u can discuss abt krsna with them, share prasadam etc. U can do deity service at home -cooking fr them, dressing them, singing kirtans fr them, etc.
U can go to temple , hear hari katha, chant , dance ,take prasadam,
If u have ur own talents and hobbies like painting or singing or cooking or whatever , u can use it for serving krsna. U can go for book distributions etc.

This is a small list that my tiny brain can think of now. But if u think for urself , ull find many activities or engagement s in ur daily life that helps u in remembering krsna.

Thanks a lot for your kind suggestions.

Preaching is the best way in my opinion & hearing & preaching is most' ecstatic & enjoyable as well. In preaching & hearing one can learn as well as share enthusiasticly while at-once is forced to temper one's presentations, as not to be unsettling to others to hum they ate trying to inspire as ee ourselves become more & more inthused! Sharing verses from thr gita as they pertain to everyone & or everyday life. This is pleasingly progressive for all ! ?
