Living at home like Prahlada Maharaja
Posted on May 13, 2014
I am so pleased to hear that you are living nicely with your parents and carrying on with your Krsna consciousness activities. That is a good proposal. Nevermind there may be some inconvenience. Krsna always appreciates when his devotee makes some sacrifice on His behalf, so there is no real difficulty under any conditions so long as we remember the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Just like Prahlada Maharaja, he never asked Krsna for anything, Oh! Krsna please save me from my demon father, no. But because he was always remembering Krsna under all circumstances, Krsna saved him anyway, and when He became finally angry He came Himself and killed the demon father. But even Krsna came Himself, still Prahlada did not ask Him for any favours, only to please kindly have mercy upon my father. That is pure devotee. Of course we cannot imitate, but we should always try to remember the example of our predecessors and follow their example always.
