Re: [doubt on prapatti]

Dear Shree/Shreemathi Dhanusha N V,

I answer your questions/clarify your doubts as follows:
1. A person after doing Prapatti should have Maha Visvasam on Lord Hari
and only on Lord Hari. The Maha Visvasam automatically means that the
Prapanna should not have any other doubts. He should be 100% clear that
his future in the material life as well as his eternal life in
Shree Vaikuntam are safe in the hands of Shreeman Narayanan. Therefore
he should not see astrology/numerology etc with any doubt about his
future after doing prapathi. But he can see astrology for ascertaining
only the "Kaalam" for the practice of nitya and naimitika karma
anushtaanams. It is more of astronomy than astrology for a prapanna.

2)  In your second doubt, you have mentioned about "brahmacharya" after
prapatti. The answer for this doubt is "a person after prapatthi
should do all his nitya naimithika karmas as per his qualification and
as per his ability without fail by the order of Vishnu and for the
satisfaction of Vishnu with Saatvika Tyaga.

Please write to me if you have further doubts/questions.

Thanks & Regards
M.S.HARI Ramanuja Daasan.
