Question:

Daily when I go to bed, I desire to get up early in the morning and to chant 16 rounds and perform mangala aarti in the early brahma muhurta hours. It’s past couple of months I am unable to get up feeling lazy and somehow unable to keep and live up to my commitment. I am being deceived continuously by my mind and fooled which I can perceive the next day morning but time evades and I feel am wasting the purpose of rare human form of life. Maharaj please enlighten me how to recover from this slackness.

Do Devotees Get Influenced by the Three Modes of Material Nature?

May 1, 2016 |

Question: Do devotees get influenced by the three modes of material nature?… Expand>

Question:

Do devotees get influenced by the three modes of material nature?

 

ANSWER by HH Bhakti Vikāsa Swami:

“Do devotees get influenced by the three material modes of nature? Well, do you? You are a devotee. Do you get influenced? 
Sometimes. You are doing better than most of us.

māṁ ca yo 'vyabhicāreṇa
bhakti-yogena sevate
sa guṇān samatītyaitān
brahma-bhūyāya kalpate

Kṛṣṇa says: “One who engages in unflinching, unalloyed … ” 
What’s the word Prabhupāda uses?

“Undistracted devotional service to Me transcends the modes of material nature, becomes completely fixed on the transcendental platform.” Unalloyed. “One who engages in My unalloyed devotional service.” (BG 14.26)

So, yeah. We are also influenced by the modes of material nature, but we should practise Kṛṣṇa consciousness very seriously and then gradually we will become free from that influence.”

Shall I Go to Doctor or Demigod?

May 6, 2011 |

Question: Recently one congregation devotee asked me "I am having some material problem for a long time and my father suggested/forced me to show to an astrologer who suggested me to worship some demigod and my problems will be solved.

Question:

Recently one congregation devotee asked me "I am having some material problem for a long time and my father suggested/forced me to show to an astrologer who suggested me to worship some demigod and my problems will be solved. He gave 100% guarantee. This will cost Rs.35,000 but if result is not there he will return all money". So his father is forcing him but he doesn't want to take shelter of someone else than Krsna. But he asked me "when a devotee becomes sick he also goes to see doctor which is like taking shelter of a demigod for curing some material problem. So why this is allowed while demigod worship for solving material problems is not? What is the difference? In Ayurveda also worship of demigods is sometimes recommended to cure some disease. It seems logical that we worship demigods to solve material problems that are posing hindrance in our service to Krsna".

So I request Your Holiness to reveal answer to this.
