Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa. In the same respect offering the fruits, vegetables, grains to Krishna benefit the farmers that grew these things or objects right?

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Say i doing a job say as sales person in place where people sell, fruits, vegetables, grains and milk(not wanted to because today’s milk is contaminated with Vitamin D in United States especially). So people today are non-devotees mostly. The thing is that those vegetables still have the oppurtunity or the potential to be Krsna prasadam and (if not at least it is in the mode of goodness which just came to mind). And they are places like the supermarket which have food varieties in goodness,passion and ignorance. And still the food sold can be potentially used for Krsna Consciousness.
But here is the question. Selling vitamin supplements, protein bar or beauty products, etc are not potentially Krsna Consciousness.
This statement that you said which is” But because of the strange ways of the material world often devotees will find themselves working at something that is not really Krishna conscious at all.” Is this what you were meaning to say in terms of doing work that is not Krsna Conscious at all. That the material world is like that i am forced to sell non- prasadam food to make money.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. If you do not answer any other inquiries it is fine. But i want to know or hear one thing.
I should not associate care, accept, bother, hear or take seriously or feel offended by non-devotees of any kind no matter who they are (including regular people, mental-speculators, Iskcon , others) and forget about them and what they say, said or will say(like their ideas, speculations, opinions) in the past, present,future? And concentrate on becoming Krsna Consciousness like chanting 16 rounds of the Hare Krsna mantra, following the four regulative principles and reading 1-2 hours of Srila Prabhupada right.
Basically i should have a blank slate of mind of what i have learned or heard from people, internet, books and read and hear of what Srila Prabhupada has to say and/or start the process of surrendering to Srila Prabhupada/Krsna Consciousness.

Thank-you for your reply and the way you replied. I was fearing that you will be very critical or severe to me because of my actions but you explained it in a very kind way. Thank-you for that

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji i have a issue to ask about which is association. You said not to associate with non-devotees and you have said that association with non-devotees is on sense-gratification as that is the only thing they know.
Let me tell you what the problem is. I am a very inquisitive person. I inquire about like everything and anything and it is mostly material one of the things is think like people’s personal life or just about things relating to them like financial status or something. Is this association still sense-gratification really.
And plus even with the devotees what type of association should i have if i encounter. Is talking or being inquisitive about their daily day to day life and and asking them of their personal position in life in a lot of areas of life still not good association.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Is material knowledge of sociality like social customs, social conventions and social etiquette necessary when aspiring to be a devotee. Well i very much doubt it. But still would like some clarity on this. I mean i read one article in which Prabhupada was mentioned to be at airport in “Prabhupada memories” and Prabhupadanever felt the need to conform to social conventions.” So Prabhuji focusing on Krsna Consciousness is the main thing right. I think so. Although my mind is troubling me. But i will. I was never much of a social etiquette guy even till now. And since i am not a fan of social etiquetee, social this, social that and plus i hear being Krsna Conscious you become perfect gentleman.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. You are right. “Non-devotees, parents or anyone else, are demons and they have no knowledge and we have to see very clearly like that.” But my parents or just some non-devotees still seem to have some knowledge about life and the type of people they interact with. Well i also agree for sure that they have no knowledge(material knowledge does not matter) but it seems like it i saying about life and the people they interact with.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. Is my parents or anyone giving me suffering on account of being Krsna Conscious or because i am aspiring to be Krsna Conscious also part of suffering of my past bad karma in this life and previous lifes I am getting. Please explain it to me.

Harev Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. What do you mean by giving them any reason to not get angry. KC will always be one reason. Another is i can commit mistakes like for example if i spilled milk or not paying attention then is that a good reason for them to get angry. Because these things happen. And plus all other types of things also happen or reasons happen like you are saying. So please tell me with examples of what you mean don’t give them any reasons. Because the reasons my parents will get angry are mixed and other small to big things. And surely i am a child of theirs.
Tell me something. Don’t parents tolerate or should they tolerate whatever mischief or misbehaviour a child does. And surely getting angry is no solution to a problem. What do you say to that. if you want to solve a problem then solve it without anger.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I don’t mean to offend you. And i know what you say is beneficial in every way. But how do you come to know something like whether masturbation is not good, stick market is gambling and all these types of things. Actrually my father was saying what these guys teach is wrong or that useless. i don’t know he was not being very good about it.
He said he hates this krishna stuff or something. He says if you read about Krsna or Gita good but what is all these things. And i had a argument over it why they say this wrong or not right. He was asking show me that this is written in gita. He says Gita or Krsna says in Gita to do your work.
He got angry and hit as i was saying it must be in the scripture. then afterwards he said he hit me because he was asking me so many times whether it is written in gita but i said it must be in the sastras or scriptures somewhere.
I mean how could i answer his question of where it says about masturabation and stock market is gambling.
Anyways my main thing of writing this thing is for me and me asking for myself. What should i think of my non-devotee parents about what they say of life in general and gita. And i don’t think it was at all fair of my father to hit me. he used physical violence on me.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I got clear about the occupation issue regarding Krsna Consciousness which is to use the money no matter what job you do for Krsna. But now the the second issue or secondary issue is Greed. I don’t feel like i have looked into the topic of greed or that it has mattered much in my life. At least never thought of it for like sometime. Or that in this site they has been much talk of Greed as far as i know or remember. I did mention “This job is not a typical job as it offers a lot of money depending on how much time you spend in it.”
It seems very attractive as it offers a lot of money that i don’t have to worry about money or anything and can always practice devotional service without much almost any or almost any worry of money. Do you have any advice as to how not to be a victim of the quality of Greed as it is one of the three gates to Hell. Anger, Lust and Greed.

Hare Krsna prabhuji. I have a question to ask you regarding occupation. Prabhuji are they some occupations or some type of occupations which a devotee or person aspiring to be a devotee should avoid no matter what? Let me give you an example. There seems to be a job or occupation where you get paid if you make the people interested to buy and use products of the company. And these products are materialistic including the food. So i will be doing things that are not Krsna Conscious at all. So what to do. This job is not a typical job as it offers a lot of money depending on how much time you spend in it.
I won’t say anything more.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. You talk about learning the art in your statements, “So we have to learn how to talk to them about Krishna without letting them talk to us about all their nonsense material sense gratification. It is an art and we have to learn that art.”
So how and where to learn this art. This question you never ever answered but you say we should learn the art. How and where prabhuji.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I am in a huge problem in a sense that i am feeling very strange. In the other comments i have read you were right that i should try to become Krsna Conscious in the situation i am in instead of changing. I have come to india for six months october 2015 till april 2016 to my grandparents and aunt and uncle and cousin brother. Things are better but still not good enough. They are very supportive of Krsna Conscious on the most part. My aunt is very supportive, inquisitive, interested and calls herself follower of Krsna(although she is not but I admire her liking of me doing my spiritual activities. But i went to vacation with my aunt and uncle and other aunt and uncle(my cousin’s uncle and aunt). Both uncles drank beer and so on and both aunts to my knowledge drank wine. They do not drink at home but did on vacation and that also with us children on the vacation. Prabhuji when coming here I have concentrated and been more sincere in Krsna Consciousness than I have at my own house and plus my aunt shows interest. But I cannot let go of the fact that both my uncles and aunts drank alcohol and plus because of it i am hesitating to associate with them. I myself do not go and talk/associate with them, go with them to badminton which they asked me and answer them when they ask me anything on the most part because I cannot live with the fact that they drank alcohol. I will associate with my grandparents and cousin but not my uncle and aunt. In one way I think that everyone is more or less materialistic so does not matter much but on the other hand I cannot live with the fact that they drank alcohol. And plus my aunt shows great interest in Krsna Consciousness but still I do not want/feel like associating with her. What should I do regarding the matter of association with my aunt and uncle and people like my aunt and uncle and non-devotees in general?

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I have taken your advice and reading the books despite the noise of the T.V. Is it okay or does it count if i am doing my best and read the books when the T.V is on and making noise.

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. I have a very important question to ask. I have started meeting with a person most of the times on a weekly basis. And i told him what i do including have read Bhagavad gita a few days ago. He asked me if Bhagavad gita is a religious book and i said yes. He said that whenever we meet i can tell him what i read in Bhagavad-Gita briefly.
What should i do? Should i briefly tell him what i read or convince him to buy the bhagavad gita from krishnastore.com and read it himself to better understand what the gita is saying then what i can describe him briefly or what should i do.
And can i tell him to chant Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare for 30 minutes like i remember i did when i was seeing back and forth and flipping pages of the Bhagavad gita (revised and enlarged) and after like few weeks or around a month i inclined to search/ go deep into finding out about Krsna Consciousness and starting to practice to certain degree in the beginning. If it worked for me it can also work for him.
But i feel he might not go with chanting or maybe he will. I don’t know unless i tell him and see what is his response.
But main question is what should I do when he is asking me to briefly state what I read in Bhagavad gita?

Hare Krsna Madhudvisa dasa prabhuji. There is a lot of disturbances in the house like rest or some of the family watching t.v a lot of the times during the day. Is it possible and will i get the best result of reading Prabhupada’s books or chanting Hare Krsna mantra.

And I am feeling very depressed in the material world with my parents and relatives. Both of them are cruel and selfishness with no boundaries. What should I do? I am sick and tired of stress in my 23 years plus of life. I am extremely depressed in this world. I do not feel like living in this life anymore? I am sick, tired and depressed living this life. You call this life. It is not life. A life worse than death is not life. I am thinking of fasting till death. I am thinking of doing japa and reading books till I die by fasting. I think I will have a quick death with certainty or at least some certainty or chance or opportunity of certainty or some certainty. Maybe I will go to Krishna loka maybe not. But I might have a better next life either way by doing this. You tell me what to do? I cannot go on like this anymore I am totally tired of this type of life. You owe to your conscience, Srila Prabhupada and Krsna according to me to answer this. You are. You have to. You have to. If you do not than whatever bad happens is also on your conscience.
