User: Swami Gaurangapada    Date: 2007-03-13 15:15:54

if one is guilty of such terrible thing how does on atone for this? is there hope for such a fallen person? i know that this offence will bring the wrath of krishna. the thought of having done so has me feeling most fearfull and lost. please advise me swami..

Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:

Don't worry, the symptom of a genuine devotee is that he or she does not take any offense ever or forgives others even before the offense has been commited.

The devotee who commits an offense has to have a genuine and remorseful heart of repentance and beg forgiveness to the devotee and the Holy Name (Nama Prabhu). And one should take determined shelter of the constant chanting of the Holy Names. Then all will be well.

Yours in service, Swami Gaurangapada.
