Jayapatākā Swami: You see, bhakti-yoga is a powerful practice. And if you just say stop something, what do you do? Your mind, your senses do not stop. So we do yukta-vairāgya. Everything we do, we do to please Kṛṣṇa. So just like we have to eat. So instead of eating nonsense, we eat kṛṣṇa-prasāda. We replace what we are doing materially bad habits with positive kṛṣṇa-sevā. People may have the bad habit of illicit sex. But those who want sex they have to be married and we bring up our children also in devotional service. I met the four sons of one of our TMC members, Sitaram and they are all going to Gurukula.
