Is Changing religion to come out of all problems right?
A male devotee asked like this:
“I am devotee of lord krsna..I even chant a mantra..but maya is attacking my family. my dad is very sick.so many treatment has done but no effect..and one of my family relative give suggestion to follow a particular religion (Name hidden) giving example of other people get healed from every sickness by prayer. In my point God is one..shree krsna is param ishwor..he even says I am supreme..and there is no one more supreme than me.. but some people dont undrstand. by following that particular religion, u hav to take all these pic.s of krsna. n they even try to take. but I said no. so plz guide me how to convince my family saying god is one.?? help me..”
I have hidden the religion name. I usually do not speak about religion. Because, I do not like to divide the society and cause unrest as the people are emotional and some people are even fools to trust anything others say.

A violence can be controlled only by satvic approach. If we too attack them, they will never realize their faults.
So, hereafter stop speaking about religions. If you like to worship Krishna, worship Him. Why do you expect certificate from others for Krishna?
Even within EVERY religion, such differences exist. I have already said that one vaishnava in my area would close all the windows and doors of his house and close all his ears whenever any procession goes in the street taking the idols of Lord Siva and singing the glories of Lord Siva. Because, he did not like to hear the glories of Lord Siva as he is a vaishnava.
How can a vaishnava hate the Lord Siva this much? Is he greater than Lord Siva? Even Sri Caitanya Maha Prabhu, Srila Bakthi Siddhantha Sarasvati (Guru of Srila prabhupada), etc, went to the temples of Lord Siva and honoured Him.

During Mahabharatha period, even Pandavas worshiped Lord Siva. Did Krishna refuse to associate with the Pandavas and Gopis because they worshiped Lord Siva, Katyayini, etc.
(Why Gopis worshiped Lord Siva & Katyayini, Not Krishna? READ HERE!)
So, I know many devotees feel offensive if we speak of Lord Siva, Jesus Christ, etc. I like to humbly state, I want to associate only with the people who do not hate anyone, including other gods.
Respecting other religions and other gods does not mean that we are fallen or contaminated devotees of Krishna. In fact, we only are the real devotees of Lord.
This offense is seen everywhere even among devotee circles. So, I beg all of you to come out of this myth. It is true that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead and He is the topmost authority. This does not mean others are not respectable.
Let us now see whether Changing religion to come out of all problems right.
(Why the scriptures claim many Supreme Gods that confuses my devotion to Krishna? READ HERE!)
If you change the religion will all your problems vanish?
Should you change your religion expecting material relief?
Can we stop further occurence of problems in future?
Why do you link religion with your family problems?
If Changing religion to come out of all problems is right, does that mean that there are no problems at all for the people in that religion?
So, hereafter, do not speak of religions in life. If you speak of religions and the issues related to that, you will get confused and your blood will start to boil. We want peace.
Religion is just a way of life and every religion has a syllabus to follow to lead a regulated life. Some religions will be liberal in their regulations and some other religions will be very strict in regulations.
Just take religion as a way of life, not your identity. As said by J.Krishnamurthy (JK), these identities are the cause for all the issues the world is facing of late and we take birth without any identities. The child starts to follow what his parents followed or it is forced on them. Some people very forcibly insist their religion on the children. They take away the liberty of children to choose their way of life.
So, Changing religion to come out of all problems is not necessary at all. Be a good human being first who understand the problems of others and help them.
So, continue chanting. Respect all gods while considering Krishna as the Supreme Lord. You need not change your religion. Everything happens according to your karma. Not because of religion.
(How can a devotee love everyone including sinners? READ HERE!)
So, sincerely pray to Krishna to give you ability to bear the heat of your karma and pray to Him to relieve you from the pains earlier.
Do not change your gods for clearing your personal problems. Because problems are there in the families of all religions. No religion’s follower is immune to problems.
Be as you are. We do not need any identities that increase violence. In fact, athma has no identity on its own except as the part and parcel and servant of Lord. It is independent and blissful. Do not contain this athma within any religion, path, caste, etc.
There is only one place where there are no problems. It is the Spiritual Vaikunta Planets and topmost Goloka.
Practice to go there after this birth. This is the real sadhana (Practice) one should do. Not changing the religions.
Changing religion to come out of all problems is an endless process. We will have to keep on changing our religion till we die.
Be wise in life. All the best.
