Thinking of Krishna as service

I have milliion thoughts everyday and they are not about Krishna. Thinking of Krishna can also be a service and valuable use of time. I was listening to Srila Prabhupada once on and I don't remember what he said verbatim but it was something like we can keep an impression of deities in our heart. This is just a faint remembrance I don't know what he exactly said.


But I was planning to put pictures of Krishna so t hat i can hold an impression of them in my heart by repeatedly looking at them and thus think of Krishna more.

One devotee was telling me that thinking of Krishna's lilas atleast once a week is very recommended to think of Lord.

Krishna also says I am the taste of water so I can think of Krishna while drinking the water or looking at the beauty of nature Krishna created or who set sun such that it  never fails to rise and set everyday.


Any more ways to think of Krishna?

    Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    What Rashmi Mataji told in few words is the right answer.

    Which means Srila Prabhupada put some standards to ISKCON Devotees and by following them we can always think of Krishna through the day.

    That sadhana is as follows for general people:

    Attending Mangala Arati

    Narasimha Arati

    Tulasi Puja

    Chanting in the association of Devotees

    Guru Puja

    Srimad Bhagavatam


    Material duties

    and in the evening starting from 7 PM Goura Arati, Kirtan or Bhagavad Gita class and then Shayan darshan and going to sleep.

    In this way whole day all senses are engaged in devotional service.

    If there is no Temple around then You can invite some Devotees to Your home for doing Mangala Arati and chanting.

    And in that way one day Your home, another day another Devotee's home...When we are doing things together things become easier.

    Or else i know Devotees who take taxi even if Temple is far but attend Mangala Arati.

    By ourselves we may try to do things alone. But for that we have to be really strong. If not so then better to do things in the company of other Devotees.

    Your servant,

    • Thank you for your well elaborated answer. I will try to follow it.

  • If you're working with computers generally, having a wallpaper of sri sri Radha Krishna might help. Also of help may be chanting some rounds before His picture.
