I am an aspiring Sri Vaishnava in an Asian foreign country with the least minimum Sri Vaishnavas around for guidance and I have never met anyone except the temple priests from the local Perumal temples.
I used to pray and read the needful but one day, after a year or so, I stopped praying altogether for months after I had a personal conflict in my life(which has now resolved). I still listened to Narayaneeyam discourses on YouTube but it's just that. I feel nothing. I even stopped going to the altar in the house or even to the temples. I want to return to the path of devotion again.
Yesterday, I went to our local Venkateswara temple and I prayed but I didn't feel anything. I felt like my heart was dry, devoid of any love towards the Lord or His consort.
Please guide me. I don't have an Acharya as I have not taken Pancha Samskaram yet.
