    Pranam My Dearest Anu Priya. Hare Krishna.
    May you receive transcendental blessings, grace and mercy
    from the God of Gods, the Father and Spiritual Master of
    this entire universe, and also its Supreme Controller, the
    Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna. His devotee
    has strong and firm faith in the understanding that if one is
    engaged in Krishna consciousness in the service of Lord
    Krishna, then one is freed from all other obligations. A pure
    devotee of Lord Krishna does not have to perform any of the
    ritualistic functions enjoined in the Vedas, nor is a pure devotee 
    required to worship any demigods. Being a devotee of Lord
    Krishna, one is understood to have  performed all kinds of Vedic
    rituals and all kinds of worship to the demigods. One does
    not develop devotional service for Lord Krishna by performing
    the Vedic ritualistic ceremonies or worshipping the demigods,
    but it should be understood that one who is engaged fully in the
    service of Lord Krishna has already fulfilled all Vedic injunctions.
    In the Bhagavad-Gita, Lord Krishna said that the worshippers of
    the demigods attain the abodes of the demigods. The system
    of worshipping demigods like Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva, Lord
    Ganesha, Goddess Durga is condemned in the Bhagavad-Gita,
    but not forbidden, and the less intelligent people worship the
    demigods for material benefit. It is stated in the Srimad 
    Bhagavatam that a person of broader intelligence, whether he
    is full of all material desires, without any material desires, or
    desiring liberation, must by all means worship the Supreme
    Whole, the Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna. It is also stated
    in the Srimad Bhagavatam that as pouring water on the root of a
    tree energizes the trunk, branches, twigs and everything else, and
    as supplying food to the stomach enlivens the senses and limbs
    of the body, simply by worshipping the Supreme Personality of
    Godhead through devotional service automatically satisfies the
    demigods, who are parts of that Supreme Personality, Lord Krishna.
    With love and best wishes, take care, bye.

    Pranam My Dearest Anu Priya. Hare Krishna.
    May you receive transcendental blessings, grace and mercy
    from the God of Gods, the Father and Spiritual Master of this
    entire universe, and also its Supreme Controller, the Supreme
    Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna, Who is the giver of life
    and the giver of death. At the time of death, our state of
    consciousness determines our next birth. Death destroys the body
    made of five gross elements, but the subtle body, consisting of
    mind, intelligence, and false ego , remains. As the air carries the
    scent of the place it blows over, so the soul carries a person`s
    subtle body of mind, intelligence and false ego, along with his
    state of consciousness, on to his next birth, and his body is
    determined accordingly. When a breeze blows over a garden,
    it carries the fragrance of flowers with it, but when it blows over a
    rubbish heap, the breeze is filled with stench. Similarly, the
    activities a person performs during his lifetime continuously
    influence his mentality, and at the time of death the cumulative
    effect of these activities determines his state of consciousness.
    Thus the subtle body formed during one`s lifetime is carried
    over to one`s next birth and manifests as the soul`s next gross
    body. Naturally therefore, the gross body reflects one`s state
    of consciousness. The face is the index of the mind. And the
    mind is the product of the activities of one`s present and previous
    lives. In other words, one`s mind, intelligence and false ego,
    which are influenced by one`s habits in this and previous births,
    form the matrix that determine the type of body and mentality
    one will have in the next life. Hence the connection between
    one`s previous, present, and future lives is the mind, intelligence
    and false ego. With love and best wishes, take care, bye.

    Pranam My Dearest Anu Priya. Hare Krishna.
    May you receive transcendental blessings, grace and mercy
    from the God of Gods, the Greatest of all mystics, the basis
    of the Impersonal Brahman, which is immortal, imperishable
    and eternal, the ultimate Supreme Truth, the Source of
    innumerable Vaikuntha planets, the Original Bhagavan,
    the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna, Whose
    body is free from the characteristics of material bodies. All
    material bodies go through six phases:- birth, growth,
    maturity, reproduction, decline and destruction. But Lord
    Krishna does not take material birth, since He is the original
    reality. We take our material birth within a particular material
    atmosphere, in material bodies that are mixtures of various
    material elements. Since Lord Krishna existed long before the
    creation of any material atmosphere or element, there is no
    question of material birth for His transcendental body. He is
    full and complete. When one`s material body becomes mature,
    one can no longer enjoy as in youth, but Lord Krishna`s body
    never reaches so-called middle age, since His body is always
    full of spiritual youthful bliss. Lord Krishna`s transcendental
    body is free from the transformations of material bodies. The
    Lord does, however, create innumerable worlds and expand
    Himself as innumerable living entities. But the Lord`s so-called
    reproduction is completely spiritual and does not take place
    at a certain phase of bodily existence, rather it constitutes the
    Lord`s eternal preference to expand His spiritual bliss and 
    glories. With love and best wishes, take care, bye.
