Sri Dham Mayapur 🔆

“He lives nearby and speaks English fairly well. When he was young he worshiped Kālī [a popular demigoddess] every day very rigorously. But when the floods came and the people saw hardship, he lost faith and now he has no religion. He said he now finds his happiness in trying to develop love among people. I couldn’t think of what to say to him to add God and religion to his life. He said that after he dies “maybe I’ll become part of God, maybe not,” but he can’t worry about it now. He said he’s tried various religious experiences, but they didn’t work. One reason I ask this is because when I go back to America, a lot of people I come across are like this. They see that religion, like his worship of Kālī or other kinds of religion they’ve experienced, doesn’t work. And I don’t know what to say to them to convince them it’s worth trying. Śrīla Prabhupāda: Do not try at the present moment. You first of all become convinced, and then try to convince others. Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s instruction is that you can improve the welfare of others when your own life is a success: bhārata-bhūmite haila manuṣya-janma yāra janma sārthaka kari’ kara para-upakāra First make your life perfect. Then try to teach others. Bob: The devotees have told me that without consciousness of Kṛṣṇa all the time, you cannot be happy. But at times I feel happy. Śrīla Prabhupāda: At times. Not always. Bob: Yes. Śrīla Prabhupāda: But if you become Kṛṣṇa conscious, you will feel happy always. Bob: They implied that you cannot feel happy without” ― A.C.
