Forgetting Krishna & Chanting in busy Schedules! Crystal Clear Solution!

Forgetting Krishna & Chanting in busy Schedules! Crystal Clear Solution!

“Hare Krishna Prabhu.  Being able to see your counselling and the pictures you share in this page is such a blessing. Thank you for that prabhu.   I have a question. Due to my busy lifestyle with (work and classes), I tend to forget Krishna , during that period of time I don’t pray or chant..and it became a habit. What shall I do Prabhu?”


Actually, no one can forget Krishna, because everyone of us is Soul and our actual connection is with the Super soul Krishna.

Then why does it seems that we forget Krishna? Because, we think that we are this body. We consider the pleasures & pressures experienced by this body as real pleasures & pressures.  We consider the pains of our body as our pains.  But, we, the souls, have no pains and pleasures.  We are falsely thinking that we are happy or suffering.

So, when work stress presses us, or worries disturb us, or when we enjoy bodily pleasures, we SINCERELY enjoy them or cry for them.  So, in that joy or grief, we forget Krishna.

The essence of Bhagavad Gita is that we should be stable and undisturbed in both the joyful and grave situations.  This is the Life management technique provided by Krishna that is taught in many universities worldwide.

Krishna also clearly says that ONLY OUR THREE GUNAS ACT, not us (Souls).  So, since we have attached to these three gunas, we act helplessly induced by our three gunas.

(How Only the Gunas act, not the persons as per Bhagavad Gita (14.19)? READ HERE!)

So, we should act being away from the domination of three gunas.

How is this possible?

We should entrust our gunas to Krishna and work just as a duty without attaching to the results/ benefits/ losses.  We should be stable in both the gains and losses.

Unless we work for Krishna, such a mindset is impossible. Until we are working for satisfying our gunas/ senses, we will be oscillating in life with the positives and negatives.

So, you should learn doing all the works thinking of the Lord Krishna within mind.  What is the problem in that?  I am now typing this post FOR Krishna – For His devotees – thinking of Krishna in mind. My lips are spontaneously uttering Hare Krishna Maha Manthra during the pause while typing this post.  I do not have any difficulty in this!  Because, I truly do this service for Krishna.  Krishna gives some earnings for my tireless premium services.  I am accepting them as His Prasadam.

Except some works that needs 100% attention like operating sensitive machineries in factories, performing sensitive operations in a hospital, etc, you can do two works at the same time:  (1) Actual work  (2) Thinking of Krishna or uttering His names.


In case of sensitive works, you can pray to the Lord before starting that work and then concentrate fully in that work.

You can study keeping Krishna & His Name in mind.

You can cook keeping Krishna  & His Name in mind.

You can iron your dresses keeping Krishna & His Name in mind.

You can eat keeping Krishna & His Name in mind.

You can clean the floor of home keeping Krishna & His Name in mind.

Thus, you can do so many works keeping Krishna & His Name in mind.  If you practice this atleast for one mandala, ie 48 days, then, you will habitually remember Krishna in all your activities.

Let your lips utter the names of Lord.  Let your mind stay filled with Krishna.  With this spiritual mindset, do any work.

Thus, you can remember Krishna most of the time.  When you practice like this for atleast one mandala (48 days), this practice will become your habit and then, you can never forget Krishna.

Also have a resolution that you will never commit any prohibited activities in your life and perform all the permitted activities keeping Krishna in mind.  If you do not have time to chant, get up one hour earlier in the morning as I do.

Try for 48 days and tell me how effective it is!




In the year 2019, I was facing some serious physical illnesses that prevented me from planning anything.  I could not even sit in weakness. The doctors had announced that I was dying and my heart LV had just 27-30% of pumping capacity (Normal is around 62-85%).

See that portion of scanned report below. There are many cardiologists/ M.Ds in our site’s followers list. They themselves will say that serving Krishna with the same quality even in this pathetic heart condition with difficulty in breathing is impossible.  Yes, I was bed ridden and dying. But, Krishna extended my life time because He wanted to allow me to serve some more period.

However, I had resolved even in the year 2011 that I should post some useful knowledge to the devotees of Krishna on daily basis on all the days as far as possible.

I had schedules to go to the hospital for a check up.

What I did?

I typed the counselling and posted for the devotees and went to the hospital.

After coming back from the hospital, I typed for next day’s Posts even at 11 pm even with the pains of sitting with illness.

When I had been admitted in the ICU, I fought with the doctors and got the permission to use Laptop in the ICU. Can a dying person be allowed to use Laptop in the protected ICU? I did that.

Thus, I managed my own follow up for health and also the service to the devotees.

Will Krishna make me fail when I was this much dedicated?

Did you see any missing of posts in Jan & Feb 2019 when I was dying and in ICU?

Did you see any missing of Posts even when mother died?  I was posting sitting near the body of my mother.

How will Krishna make me fail in my mission?

If the devotees do not honor this media and do not make use of it, whose fault it is? Mine or theirs?

Who is the loser?  Me or they?

That is why this site is in the hearts of Lakhs of devotees. Krishna never fails to make a fully dedicated service successful.  Because, one can never preach to this level without the approval of Krishna.

That is why, I give more importance for internal changes than external outlooks. I may seem to be like an ordinary person as I am careless and timeless in external dressing.  But, I can never compromise in my internal love and dedication to Krishna.  I am proving that throughout my service.


(Serving Krishna even when we struggle in (or) for life- My Experience – PART-2! READ HERE!)

This is what required. We should not just make a SHOW by wearing so many devotee clothes with many impurities in our hearts.  INNER Purity is important. Just be alert that you should not miss your services to the Lord in any situation. Krishna will make it possible as He did for me.

Krishna will make your efforts successful.

Hope these tips help to avoid forgetting Krishna & Chanting in busy Schedules!
