Hare krishna

         Hinduism is 3rd most followed religion and in that also we see there are so many people who are not vaishnavas and so many people eat non veg, drink and smoke and many are followers of demogods.............so my question is why are there so less krishna devotees in world?

  • In Age of Kali there is hardly anyone who is not fallen according to the calculations of Vedic behavior. This is the disease of this age.

  • Hare Krishna Prabhu Ji,

    Your question is absolutely right, in the age of Kalikal (Kalyuga). It has been already declared in our scriptures and vedas there will be less number of devotees in Kaliyuga, the people will be more involved into material attractions i.e. lust, violence, money and eat whatever they like.

    But who believe the presence of GOD will not be more involved into such activities. They will be pure devotees and they always love to serve the Lotus feet of GOD(Krishna). The people who believe in GOD and serve all his duties to supreme personality of GODHEAD will be only happy in this Kaliyuga.

    So take shelter of Sril. Prabhupad and start chanting Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. That is only way to get rid off all the past karma activities and live a happy life there is no other way, there is no other way, there is no other way.

    Jai Sril. Prabhupad.

    Hare Krishna.

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    The Lord Himself says in Gita - Bahunaam Janmanaam Ante Gyaanwaan Maam Prapadyate, Vasudeva Sarvam Iti Sa Mahatma Sudurlabhah - after many lifetimes of sadhana, one gets the knowledge that Vausdev is the supreme. Such a soul is very rare.

    Devotion is a very very very rare gem. It doesnt go to everyone. To be honest, how many people in the world really want devotion? Absolutely everyone in the world wants enjoyment for themselves. Devotion means serving the Supreme Lord, loving the Supreme Lord, making the Supreme Lord prime in our life. How many want to do this? And out of many who aspire to do this, most do not achieve because of prior anarthas - past bad karma. That is also the reason absolutely no one in the world is happy or satisfied. Because real happiness and satisfaction is serving the Supreme.

    I hope I have been able to explain.


    Your servant,

    Radha Rasamayi DD

  • Real diamonds its always difficult to find, but that doesnt means they are rare.

    If you keep searching, you may find them in the places you woud never expect,

    and there where you expect, you may not find them at all.

    • In India the number of Krishna devotees are huge in numbers  . Even many followers of Sri sampradaya and madhava sampradaya worship Krishna in addition to  Nimbarka , Vallabha and Gaudiyas . 

  • HARE KRISHNA Prabhu,

    If we have trust in Hindu Scriptures, there In "BramhaSamhita" Lord Bramha said, "Iswara parama krishna Saccidananda Bigraham" (i.e, Krishna is the supreme Godhead) In our world, at this time, the mind of a child is completely damaged by the surroundings , there he or she cannot able to find the right way of living. The happiness people are observing here is just the sorrow, the real happiness they will find after they will not be able to enjoy that happiness. Real happiness means to serve Krishna, and to be in his feet. One question may be there, why all Yogis are in very difficult life?? Or Vaisnavas are in so different life from others?? What happiness all the Vaisnavas find to love Krishna??
     The answer is "Ramante Yoginohanante Satyananda Chidatmani" (i.e Yogis find pleasure to serve Krishna), after just chanting Hare Krishna Maha Mantra After MahaPrabhu, we can realize that something peace is in our mind, but to enjoy that peace, we must understand how the peace will come to us, the way is to chant Mahamantra.

     The Sea is very dangerous in the shore, we are all in the shore, if we will be able to go in the middle of the sea, there is really the peace, so we must try to go in the middle of the sea, where the water is deeper and deeper. The place is very PEACEFUL.

    It is not that after eating nonveg, or drinking one may have happiness, it is real sorrow, it is very sad to see people eating nonveg, because, they are eating lives, if we cannot create life, we have no right to destroy life. Everybody will understand the right thing at the right time. We Must Request all of them to chant HARE KRISHNA MAHAMANTRA once, surely they will have peace in them. After that They will understand. :)

    Jai Prabhupad,


    HARE KRISHNA, and thank you prabhu to ask such a question :)
