    The Vow- Please suggest


    If possible please help me with my doubt. I request to please read the following doubt of mine carefully TILL THE END in which I have included every detail and please give advice. This is a real life scenario sir and i am totally confused.

    Last month I went to Padmavathi temple tirupati and prayed to Goddess diety to fulfil my wish by completely healing my father’s paralysis problem. And in return I vowed to Goddess Padmavati deity that if she heals my father’s paralysis problem completely then I will bring my father for her darshan and donate my hair. But yesterday I brought my father for tirupati darshan in advance & donated my hair in advance ,before complete recovery of my father. Means my father was still NOT recovered completely from paralysis at that time upto my satisfaction level . But i brought him to darshan and shaved my head with the feeling to fulfil my vow/promise in advance and requested/said in my mind to Goddess deity that- “Last month i vowed that i will bring my father for tirupati darshan and shave my head IF you cure my father’s paralysis problem .My father’s paralysis issue is still not cured but I have brought my father for darshan and shaved my head in advance, before fulfilment of my wish (which was complete recovery of my father from paralysis). Please accept this darshan(visit) and donation of my hair as fulfilment of my promise/vow which i was supposed to fulfill after fulfilment of my wish but i have fulfilled it in advance before fulfilment of my wish. Please accept this as fulfilment of my vow/promise and now please cure my father’s paralysis problem completely as i prayed to you”

    Will this be considered fulfilment of my vow by the Goddess? I am asking this because earlier I vowed to Goddess that i will bring my father for tirupati darshan and donate my hair IF my father recovers completely from paralysis.But I brought my father to tirupati darshan in advance and donated my hair in advance, before his complete recovery. Will Goddess accept this “darshan and hair donation in advance” as vow fulfilled? Or this will NOT be accepted as fulfilled by Goddess because I did that activity before fulfilment of my prayer/wish?

    Namaste rv2789

    I have been reviewing my vows made at the last weekend with the agreement of my wife and daughter but could not stick to it after 4 days. I wish to be free of all attachments and just live out my life as created by God Sri Krishna who I worship through Brahma the sattvic Lord who seemingly supervises my life and my path in life. I of course have no proof that the Gods exist at all but I hope that they do exist for I know that I would have failed miserably as a human being left to my own devices and conducting my life to material and spiritual attachments.

    I have been able to lead a family life in this manner with considerable difficulty for the past 22 years since I lost my scientific career in agricultural development and the State here in the UK diagnosed me as suffering from persistent delusional disorder for which I have to take anti-psychotic and anti-depressant medications. I take these willingly as my wife also thinks that I should not have married and had a family because these lack of attachments mean that I cannot lead a productive life in humanity without specific rules and regulations that require me to lose my freedom and this hurts my conscience.

    If that is any guide to you please take note of it or dismiss it as irrelevant and counter productive to your personal situation.

    Thanks for reading.
