All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Please accept my humble obeisances.

I live in Ireland and I have some European colleagues in the house.

There was a delivery and I was there near the door when the delivery guy came. And I just took it and saw the colleague just behind me. I gave it to him. 

I always clean all utensils with soap before cooking although it is already clean and as such do not use house common utensils. Also oven, I use when it is cooled down a bit, when previous food smell is gone.

I later discovered they eat beef also.


But I am very afraid and depressed regarding the oven thing and handing over the food

I recently heard that even being a means is sinful. I wasn't aware of it.

I have avoided all oven making foods, using house common utensils and frozen foods. I moved here as I wanted a cheaper rent and heard people are good but did not knew they beef also.


Please assist me. I am really worried and depressed that the Lord will be angry with me because of this.

  • Hare Krsna prabhuji , 

    Please pray to Lord Krsna by asking forgiveness in your own words both in the morning and evening. Daily ask forgiveness and ask the lord to please deliver you from your situation. 

    And chant the holy names daily . Holy names are very powerful. It can deliver you from the biggest sins . Please do pray .

    Sorry for late reply for I realized that how powerful prayers are just today . My family members are giving me some psychotic drugs so that I lessen my Krsna consciousness. I lost interest in chanting for a day . I have been praying to lord to chant holy names eternally from three months.  Yesterday also before sleeping I prayed to the lord to instill my interest in holy names. I feel by the power of lord,  from today I got back my interest in chanting . I explained that it's making me lazy and stopped the drugs . Please note I'm not a patient . It's a misunderstanding that led me to take tablets . However lord delivered me from that situation.  

    Good luck on yours too . Prayers and holy names are both powerful. 

    • Radhe Krishna.

      Thanks a lot. That really makes me feel good. Ultimately Krishna can do anything and hears to everyone. I will pray with devotion and faith to deliver me. 

      I am really glad about you, breaking all obstructions and back to chanting the sweet Lord's names.

      • Thanks 

  • Hare Krishna Prabhu ji!


    I'm pretty sure you have already decided to move out and all so i won't talk about that...

    about the oven thing and handing food... atleast I don't see your fault here... you didn't know... we are all unknowingly killing so many microorganinsms and think not much about it too... but since cow killing is a big big big apradh (you didn't do it but since you feel sorry), i guess you should wait for ekadashi, 14th march and chant as many rounds as you can... not only a few more since it's ekadashi... also this is an amazing month it has gaur purnima too! lord gauranga is also very merciful... so i guess chanting a lot and sincerely apologising to sri radha krishna should do the trick

    Hare Krishna!

  • Hare Krishna,

    Buy a microwave oven or portable conventional oven cum microwave which can be countertop. they are cheap. max. $250 . you can even pay in installments.

    If the person is cooperative and adjusting with you a small change a buy buying a microwave oven will save the day.



    I think you need oven for toasting bread at the max.. or reheating or making pizza?

    you can go buy a small unit doens't cost much.

    check the price of it online in amazon and order one.

    hare krishna.
