    When we try to live for others our senses will be controlled.

    We have to organize our life in such a way that we help others, we serve others, we try to make happy others.

    And for a man it is better if he cultivates the quality of responsibility.

    Lust for girls? Then one should get married and take care of that girl.

    Lust for food? Then one should share his food with others.

    Lust for money? Again sharing it for good reasons.

    And of course by associating with sincere Devotees who can control senses we can get power to control our senses.

    Your servant,

  • Prabhu; attend temple programs and do not belittle yourself or feel guilty. It is all part of the process of becoming more Krishna Consciousness. Try to chant more...Give yourself good time and be regular and consistent
    There is nothing more to it

    • thank you... haribol......

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    How does one guide you if you are to rebellious to do as you are told. I think you should try to visit the local ISKCON temple as often as possible and eat as much prasadam as you can take at one time.

    Chanting is very very important - please chant 16 rounds of mahamantra everyday. If you cannot do that, then chant atleast 2 rounds of pancha tattva mantra everyday, you will get inspired to chant the mahamantra then.

    Best of luck,


    Your servant,


    • chanting is very difficult because of my tied up schedule........:/ ..............

      • local temple is very far...... and ofcourse.... the rebbelion... cant control... suggest something for a busybee please.... :D

          Hare Krsna Prabhuji,

          If the local temple is far, then maybe you can access on internet from home. Make it a point to watch mangalarti followed by darshan arati and gurupuja and lecture - entire morning program for a month. Everything will work out. The timings are 4.15 am to 5.30 am and 7.00 am to 9.00 am.

          If all of the above is not possible, then you must get Srila Prabhupada books. You can even read online - PLease make it a point to start with small books like Chant and Be Happy, Perfect Questions Perfect Answers, Life COmes from Life, The Science of Self Realisation, On the way to Krsna. Then proceed towards reading Gita, then Bhagawatam, then Chaitanya Charitamrta.

          Why is chanting difficult prabhu? Is it that you do not have devotee association? Do you have friends who are devotees? Try to associate with them more. Force yourself to chant prabhu. GIve yourself some tangible motivation like maybe you will drink the first glass of water in the morning after chanting 2 rounds, or you will reward yourself with your favourite food after completing 4 rounds.


          Your servant,


  • Hare Krishna Prabhuji..

    All glories to Prabhupada..

    according to Srila prabhupada , chaitnya mahaprabhu all spiritual Guru in chain, says the message from Bhagwatam  that  only   chanting is solution for all material miseries.. and source of spiritual upliftment...

    . so kindly prabhu any how try ur best to chant 16 rounds or more.  and try ur best that u r attentive.. if cant , plz atleast complete 16  and ask for only love of krishna

    secondly  read prabhupada's books. here this theory works that only a pure devotee can impart transcendental knowledge so if i will narrate it may not work but if u read direct from books or listen from a pure devotee it will work.


    if u dont have time or interest then atleast anyhow chant mahamantra...  krishna will provide time and develop interest in u.. 


    hope i cud forward the mesaage of Srila prabhupada

    plz chant

    hare krishn hare krishn

    krishn krishn hare hare

    hare ram hare ram

    ram ram hare hare


    A fallen soul.

    • hari hari.... i love reading prabhupaad books... i have a few...

      • hari bol... 

        keep reading those.. Srila Prabhupada definitely give u idea..

        as well as try ur best to chant 16 rounds. Krishna will provide u time from ur busy schedule. only u have to keep this desire to chant, to go to temple, eat prasadam and try ur best. then Krishna definitely arrange these all for u. u need not to b part of any sampardaay...  our prime motive is only krishna

        and chanting is instruction from bhagwata puraan.. it is for all..  for all sampradaay, for all nation, all communities..
