How do you wear your devotion to work? For Plain clothes devotees, the desire to dress with devotion and then go to work in the material world may have some conflict. When I was younger and new to KC, I would wear a Kurta (devotional shirt) and a Chaddar (prayer shawl) to places I worked. Back then, I was a performance artist, so most people didn't mind. But in other venues, I was looked at as a little "out-of-it".
When I asked the devotees what to do, they gave me suggestions to tone-down my apparel and use more subtle devotional dress. One such suggestion was 'Invisible Tilak'... Here's what I was taught: Take a nice vessel and fill it with water; say "Shri Vishnu" and touch the water with the tip of your right 4th finger and say "Om ganges namah:" . Keep this blessed water in a special place, and then every morning your can decorate you forehead with Invisible Tilak and say, "Om keshavaya namah:" . And, there you have it... Tilak that only you and Shri Krishna know you are wearing.
It feels good to walk out the door to work knowing I'm wearing my Tilak mark.
Actually, the water mantra was a longer prayer, but I couldn't remember it all the time, and so just say Om ganges namah:. The actual prayer is like.. om ganges ca yamuna ca.....svaha; see, I can't remember, so I get by just showing my devotion using shorter phrases. I know Shri Krishna sees my efforts, and I believe He appreciates it.
Now days, I wear a devotional ring; sometimes also, one string of decorative tulasi beads around my neck. These things are more subtle, and when a co-worker or customer asks about these items at work, it gives me a chance to talk to them about our faith.
What do you do or could you do, to blend your devotional and work-a-day dress-style to satisfy your desire to keep Krishna Consciousness in your heart while working in the material world?
