Dear Krishna.com visitors and supporters, our prayers are with you and your loved ones right now. May you stay healthy and safe. May you always remember Krishna, especially in times like these. We've been posting lots of inspirational content on our Krishna.com Facebook page (please like the page to be notified), and we're working on updating this website with a new look. If you would like to support Krishna.com's missionary effort to spread Krishna consciousness for the benefit of all, please give a donation.

I've been practicing Krishna consciousness for three months - trying to chant sixteen rounds and follow all the principles - but I recently had illicit sex with my wife and I feel terrible.

You're a young devotee and seem to be sincere in your desire to advance in Krishna consciousness. Even in Bhagavad-gita Lord Krishna says that if one is sincerely trying to become a devotee but falls down due to past bad habits he is still to be considered a devotee.

You shouldn't be too hard on yourself, especially this early in your Krishna Consciousness. There are many unwanted things in the heart that need to be cleared over time. It will take patience and chanting over time, also service. So please just be patient and continue with your chanting and reading.
