Question: Serving Krishna with Animals in My Home?

Dear Guru Maharaja,

The devotees here in Baku say that I can not serve Krishna at home if I have a cat or a dog at home. Why is it so? Any animal is also a creature made by Krishna. So what is bad if I take care of helpless animals?

H.T.


Answer: Restrict Them from the Kitchen and Temple Room.

Although in Vedic culture as a matter of cleanliness the dogs and cats are kept outside the house, because you are accustomed to keeping them in the house there is no prohibition against your taking up the practice of Krishna consciousness. Simply you should make arrangements that they cannot enter the kitchen and the temple room.
