Jayapataka Swami: By staying in good association, one can get freed from sinful activities. When we stay with bad association, then they break regulative principles and their bad association can take us down. So by good association, we can increase our devotional service. Also by living in the holy dham. There are five things which are very beneficial for our giving up sinful activities and starting to perform devotional service. These are mentioned in the Nectar of Devotion.
