Thank you very much Prabhu! Gradually I am understanding a few verses of Bhagavad Gita which I couldn’t understand earlier…
I am especially referring to the verse :
Prakrteh kriyamanani gunaih karmani sarvasah ahankara vimudhatma kartaham iti manyate
I now understand that all results that we get, is a result of our past and thus we shouldn’t wrongly think that we are the doer. My understanding became stronger when I read Srimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad Gita again and again…
Yet, I had this doubt…kindly clear it Prabhu. With reference to my academics, I was very very good at it and would shine. However in a main exam I committed very silly mistakes and everything went wrong and my dream of years together shattered…
… Somehow I can’t convince myself that this was ordained since my mistakes were very silly….Yet as per this verse am I right to understand that it was ordained?
Sorry for troubling Prabhu…I promise I shall not ask further questions on this… Again,sorry Prabhu.

I do my 16 rounds, 1 hour of reading of Srila Prabhupada’s books daily and follow 4 regulative principles. Initially I was proud that I had accomplished this great feat.
But only to end up in distress. Now I feel there is still something missing? I don’t understand whether the problem is that I am not chanting and reading with full attention or whether the problem is that I am not following the other instructions of fully dedicating my 24 hours? Kindly help. I am finding it very difficult to continue with my daily regulative principles without getting any encouragement.
2) Prabhu, and one more thing, I have scored very badly in my exams in spite of my full efforts. It does not matter in the long run right? These marks are always distressing and somehow or other affect me very badly sometimes that I find it very difficult to even do my daily rounds…I am glad becoming Krishna conscious does not require us to become PhD.

Hare Krishna Aman prabhu,
I remember the very first time I came in contact with Krishna consciousness movement, it was Srila Prabhupada’s books that mesmerized me… So much so that I couldn’t give it up to this day. And gradually I was so amazed with Srila Prabhupada’s teachings that I wished to sincerely follow his instructions. It takes great effort to understand how fortunate we are to have come in contact with Srila Prabhupada. I had seem many “gurus” before but never had anyone mesmerized me so much. Now in India, one by one they are all getting caught on rape charges and that serves them right!
I remember the very first time I heard about the rule that we should chant 16 rounds a day, I became so enthusiastic. There was no one to encourage me but Srila Prabhupada himself. So the first day I heard about this rule I did 4 rounds, the next day 9 rounds and on the 3rd day 16 rounds and that was the end of it. From that day there has not been a single day when I did not do my 16 rounds. And what keeps me going? It is Srila Prabhupada through his books!
So just give it a try. I challenge you to do it (coming to 16 rounds) in two days, else I win!
May you be successful in this attempt! My best wishes. Please give a go at it without any reservations…
P.S. Please read Srila Prabhupada’s books daily for at least 1 hour; that is the only thing that can keep you going in Krishna consciousness.

Yes Prabhu, in the long run, I understand that following Srila Prabhupada’s instructions by bits and pieces is definitely not enough. Of course, I to have a very intense desire to dedicate my 24 hours to Krishna consciousness. But I am really not able to do so at the present moment. So now all I am able to do is chant 16 rounds, read 1 hour and follow 4 regulative principles. And i shall give no excuse for this. But there is no doubt that as soon as I get the opportunity I shall engage in Krishna consciousness 24 hours a day….

Prabhu, not wanting to waste your time, it is my humble request to you to please help me.
I have been reading Srila Prabhupada’s books for quite a few years now as per the rule (1 hour daily) and chanting 16 rounds daily and following the 4 regulative principles. It was going on nicely and I was very happy.
All of sudden I got the habit of not reading srila Prabhupada’s books although I am still chanting 16 rounds daily and following the 4 regulative principles. And somehow it has become such a strong habit that I am not able to overcome it. I am not feeling as happy now as I was then and I know that it is not due to reading the books for 1 hour daily. Even if i read , it is only for 20 minutes or so.
The main thing is I am not getting the mood or rather , the encouragement to read them. Prabhu, could you please encourage me to read the books for 1 hour daily…I have always taken your words seriously…
Due to unavoidable circumstances I am not able to distribute books now and along with that somehow I have come to even not reading his books. There is no question of stopping my spiritual life, but things are just not going in the right way. I am totally confused.
I am not understanding what to do. Prabhu, please somehow encourage me to read Srila Prabhupada’s books. It is a humble request…
Your humble servant.
