Hare Krsna! Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
May I ask if a person can lead Kirtan or is permitted to lead Kirtan during a Sunday feast even if that person is not following one or two of the regulative principles like “no meat eating”. What is the standard practice in iskcon temples? Is it good to be concerned about this? Whose concern is it to ensure that kirtanist or lead for pranams are devotees following regulative principles. I feel bad for bringing up this issue as i feel perhaps it should not be my business to be concerned and concentrate on being a better devotee. Thank you.

Hare Krsna! Prabhu!
Please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
It was very enlightening to read your detailed explanation to my query. Thank you very much.
The issue of surrender is very deep and meaningful. To what degree are we surrendered to Krsna? I need to be more surrendered to Krsna to be at peace when things don’t go well. As Prabhu has pointed out they are material and have nothing to do with Krsna Consciousness.
Your humble servant,

I really liked your explanation to the query from the devotee on how to organise our Hare Krsna altar. I also like your explanation that we should only read literature sanctioned by Srila Prabhupada and books by Srila Prabhupada himself. It is so sad that many people are misled in the quest for the truth.
I have a question: Why do devotees undergo intense suffering although they desire only to serve and love Krsna. They chant, do kirtan, visit temple regularly, offer their food, eat prasadam, do seva, do good to others, be helpful, preach etc. Yet something very bad happens in their family. Non devotees are not convinced to come into Krsna Consciousness when they see this. That the devotee undergoes so much suffering despite being in devotional service.
If we talk of karma then it appears as if only the devotee is paying for past misdeeds. What about countless others who mercilessly indulge in all sorts of sense gratification yet appear to be living happy lives especially the non vegetarians — eg: who score very high grades in exams, or live very wealthy luxurious lives, or get job promotions, marry well, attain fame, things generally associated with living “the good life” etc.
I am asking this as I would like to be able to provide a more convincing answer when I am asked this question and not just relegate my answer to the law of karma. Especially about the part when the devotee is subjected to a lot of hardship. Why is it that it appears as if only he/she is paying for his/her karma? Not others who are openly indulging in sinful behaviour?
I would be grateful for some clarifications.
Thank you very much for your kind attention.
