Devotees: Prahlad

                                                                  Q. We are a product of the environment that we take birth and grow up in. To a great extent this environment determines whether one will be religious or not. If God is in control of this, then why should one have to suffer the consequences of being born in an atheistic family?

                                                                  Q. If I have two options, viz.
                                                                  1) Serve someone in need i.e. help others through community service -OR-
                                                                  2) Chant the name of the God.

                                                                  Q. I couldn't follow one sentence in the purport of Bhagavad Gita verse (10.38): "Among the confidential activities of hearing, thinking and meditating, silence is most important because by silence one can make progress very quickly". Could you please elaborate this?

                                                                  Q. Can any person get more than he is destined to get especially by worshiping demigods? Prahlada Maharaja has said that material happiness and unhappiness is fixed. Then why do people get immediate results when they start worshipping demigods? Are these results in addition to what they are destined to get? What is destiny then?

                                                                  Q. Why do you ask people to get "mukti" (liberation) when it would be better for them to become self-controlled and take repeated births to serve other people by showing them the right path?

                                                                  Q. As I know, Lord Krishna appears in this material world with His original form (human-like form) in Kali-yuga. My question is why the Lord chooses to reveal Himself in His original form especially in this yuga?
