Why the demigods help faster than Krishna to their devotees?

Actual question from a woman devotee:

Hare Krishna Prabhuji!  I am very upset, in spite of my all qualifications, hard work and sincerely working I am not promoted, undeserved people got promotion..

All my friends do puja to demigod doing many fast Thursday for promotion, I never did such worship.. Now all my Juniors become Seniors, I will remain as Sr. steno.. ours is PSU… Promotion is based on CR report.. unfortunately I had bad bosses….

Can’t Krishna give me simple promotion, rather demi God worshipers get promotion without any delay… I really feel very sad for the last 25 years I am working, ..

In the past,  I got permanent due to my only one Good boss…..MD was very nice, ..Why I am writing is why success is not coming to me,? I am not praising myself, still I want to tell you, I give for cow donation, sadhus who ever visit my home I give cloths, money, rice, etc what ever I can, remembering my father . That too not expecting any result, only my father may forgive, me.. anyway when he was in Chennai, he suddenly left for Kashi, I was given birth to my son , so could not contact.. no phone was there.

I feel sorry, and getting angry, supreme personality of Godhead cannot give his devotee simple promotion, rather Durgaji, Guru devtha easily give success, prosperity, to his devotees, ..It’s really discouraging, ..

What to do.. Like pious lady who cannot think of other man even her husband ill treat her, I can’t worship any other God other than Krishna, still he Krishna has not given me good luck, prosperity…
What is your answer, In office I am the only.persom who left out Aap ka Krishna ka heart nahi hai.. Tell him in your prayers.  Tell him also even he won’t give any prosperity, good for tune, I will die his Dasi,.. Hari Bol..


Very innocent question.  You are in a confused state even after following our site.

You have written in a paragraph like this:

“I give for cow donation, sadhus who ever visit my home I give cloths, money, rice, etc what ever I can, remembering my father . That too not expecting any result”

After telling that you are not expecting any result, you have written in another paragraph expecting a simple promotion:

“Can’t Krishna give me simple promotion, rather Demigod worshipers get promotion without any delay”

This is a clear contradiction.

If you had understood Krishna properly, you won’t feel if Krishna does not give you promotion.

Take this statement as my standing advice for all:

“Krishna will not give anything to His devotee if it will not do good for him.  Because He knows your past karma. Whereas, demigods give faster, but, they do not care whether it will do good for their devotees or not.”

As usual, let me make you understand  how can the demigods help faster than Krishna, with a few examples:

If a Krishna devotee has been destined to die because of his son, Krishna will never give him a child though he cries hundred times.  Whereas, the devathas may give him a son and allow him to die because of that child.

If a person is destined to die if he buys a car and drives it, Krishna will never give him a car though he cries hundred times.  Whereas, the devathas may give him a car and allow him to die because of the  car accident.

If a Krishna devotee has been destined to face tortures from his spouse, Krishna will never give him marriage though he cries again and again.  Whereas, the devathas may give him a spouse and allow him to suffer because of the tortures of that spouse.

I too have a few of such negatives in life if viewed in the material angle. But, still, I am serving the Lord without break thinking that Krishna is protecting me from facing disasters.

Remember, the demigods may help faster than Krishna.  But, if one does not get something in spite of being a devotee, that means, he was about to face sufferings because of that boon and hence Krishna did not give that boon.

As on date (20.01.2021), I do not have own house, cars, air conditioning and other luxuries because I have entrusted my life to serve Krishna and His devotees. He will give me something if I truly need that thing to lead my life and to do this preaching service.  Since I have no financial targets in life, I am leading a very satisfied life in spite of the absence of luxuries and fluctuations in earning.  I just try my best to be an example for my preaching. Hence, I take everything, including the difficulties, as the blessing of Krishna.


Some people have asked me like this:

“You are always speaking about Krishna, Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavatham, etc.  But, I am blessed with two cars and two houses, but you are paying rent for house. Why are you wasting your life speaking about Krishna?  Be practical”

I smiled at them and said:

“You do ordinary things that everyone can do. Whereas, devotional service to Krishna is a rare opportunity that is gifted only for a few people.  I have been given a rare opportunity of sacrificing my life for Krishna and enlightening others.  You work for you and we work for Krishna.  That’s all.   This is the difference between a devotee and others.   But, can you guarantee that you are really happy in life?  Your sons got married and deserted you. Now, you are living alone with your wife here in this old age.  You have everything, but you are not able to make your sons to keep you with them.  But, we, the devotees, though live alone, atleast have a hope that Krishna will protect us in any situation.  You can not feel so.  You are actually in distress of separation from sons.  We are always connected to Krishna and we always feel that association.”

After that, he never talked like that.  Now, that wife died of heart attack and he is living alone with a selfish servant maid, though he has crores of money with him.

You are considering that only those who have more material belongings and success are fortunate people.

The demigods may help faster than Krishna in having more and more material things, but it can not ensure peace.

You simply forgot that you have a job when there are crores of unemployed people.  That itself is a blessing.  Now, you cry for promotion. If Krishna gives promotion, you may cry for more hike in salary than your co employees.

(Is it wrong worshiping demigods out of love, not for benefits? READ HERE!)

Thus, our desires will never end.

Why don’t you compare yourself with those who are jobless and hence thank Krishna?

If your colleagues get promotion and you are not, there may be many reasons for that.  If you review yourself with a balanced mind, you may lack in something that they have.

In case you have all the talents that your colleagues have, the promoted position may involve heavy duties that may affect your devotional practices or you may have to face some challenges like losing image, if you get promoted.  Krishna never gives anything to His devotees that may affect their devotional standing or may not give a peace and prestige.  This may be the reason for Krishna not giving promotion to you.

Already, you have been blessed with some essentials for managing your life to some extent.  Krishna will have some genuine reason with regards to your karma,  for not giving something to you.

Accept His decision as it is.  Do not pressurize Him and make Him feel sad for you.  Krishna has customized blessings for you.  It is coming from time to time.  More will follow.

Therefore, thank Krishna for what you have.  Do not think that only the promotion will decide your success in your life. There are so many things one should desire for.

Maintain full faith on Krishna.  Accept and thank Him for what you have.

Hope you are now clear about why the demigods help faster than Krishna to their devotees!

Krishna always give safe boons.
