  1. Dear Devotee of Lord Krishna
    My desired goal or outcome is spritual in nature. The desired goal or result is Lord Krishna. I therefore would llke to ask you your opinion on impure devotion and offence while serving the Supreme Lord. If i am impure materiarly, but chant his name vigoursly, read Shimad Bhagavatan, read of his pastimes and think of him constantly. Is He displeased? For offensive devotion is he diapleased with me? Should i discontinue devtion? Ive read repeated sin while chanting is poison, like eating ones own vomit. That the mantra is harmful for a sinner. I dont commit any offenses but for one. Im afraid God may be somewhat dissapointed in me. Am i still his devotee? My anxiety and depression has lifted since chanting. I enjoy reading about him very much and feel peace reading The Story of the Fortunate One. I and am so fond of Govinda and hope he can forgove me.

      We are all impure, particularly at the beginning. So we have to start somewhere. And when we start we will be naturally impure.

      So chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srimad-Bhagavatam is good in any condition, pure or impure. It is only through chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srimad-Bhagavatam that we can transfer our consciousness from impure to pure. So certainly keep on chanting Hare Krishna and reading Srimad-Bhagavatam. These things are good in every circumstance.

      But we have to try to become pure. It means we have to make a serious effort to chant at least 16 rounds of the Hare Krishna mantra every day and strictly follow the four regulative principles [no illicit sex, no meat eating, no gambling and no intoxication]. But if for some reason we can’t follow these things then we should just increase our chanting of Hare Krishna more and more and read the Srimad-Bhagavatam more and more and gradually, automatically, we will loose our taste for sinful activities and become more and more attached to serving Krishna.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

  2. Dear Sir/Madam,

    I searched for it and I could find that the word ‘disciplic’ does not exist in the english dictionary at all.

    However, the phrase “disciplic succession” has been used in other books and websites also. Thank you.
