Writing

Hare Krishna...

PAMHO

I am currently writing a novel and it's a fantasy. I tried to write on spirituality but since I know nothing about it, that idea failed so, I just wanted to ask that even though it isn't the best, is it fine if I write on  materialistic stuff since writing is a big thing for me but I know nothing avout spirituality to write on it. Although I do write poems on lord Krishna

thank you!

      I am just so relieved that krishna will be happy from that too! It was a lovely poem and a picture! I too listen to madhavas rock band and they're trulyawesome devotees as well as artists.

      Hare Krishna

  • Hare Krishna!

    Its great that you write poems on Lord Krishna. Thats a good enough service to Krishna. So you neednt worry. Senior devotees will clarify this further.

    • Ok Prabhu ji thankyou!

    Hare Krsna Mataji,

    PAMHO.

    Normally, we tell everyone to utilise their talent in the service of the lord.

    Fantasy cannot be written on the lord or His pastimes. 

    Writing fantasy on material topics and offering a part of the results to Krsna is called Karma yog. It is better than keeping the fruits of the work to oneself. 

    It would also be a good idea to read up and understand the philosophy. Then you will get ideas on writing.

    Alternatively, you could translate some of the texts - there are so many. This would be service to the lord and His devotees. You coudl transcribe lectures from audio to text or translate - if you are interested, will have to search appropriate team to attach you to.
    Haribol,

    Your servant,

    • Bhaktivedanta Manor was donated by Beatles, that was karma-yoga?

        Hare Krsna 

        Yes, Offering of results is karma yoga.

        Hare Krsna

    • Ok MataJi... I have started reading books of srila Prabhupada instead of the books I read first but my mother has told me that once I get in 9th grade I can't read any outside book, only course books. I do write about lord krishna but it's just small articles or poems like this one-

      The All-Attractive Krishna

       
      OH lord Krishna
      Your beauty can be both seen and felt
      The thought of your velvet hair and butter arms
      Makes every heart melt

      Oh dear lord
      Thinking about you overwhelmes my heart
      The beauty in this world
      is just a piece of your art

      Your chest is like a palace of love
      For everyone of your devotee
      The charm of this world
      Is nothing in front of your beauty

      Instead of absorbing it
      Your dark skin emits light
      Listening and reading about you
      Makes all my days bright

      The sound of the venu played by you
      Fills the universe with the sweet mellow of love
      Everyone dances with joy
      Whether they're in hell or heavens above

      You are the taste of water to a thirsty man
      And fragrance of flower to a bee
      You are the touch of mother to a child
      But oh lord you're everything to me
       
      So, mata ji, is it okay if I write things like this for lord Krishna instead of writing books on him? I have a feeling that my mind would never let me understand anything about lord Krishna
      Hare Krishna
