Jayapataka Swami: Think before you do. Don’t respond to situations mechanically. What they call as knee jerk response. They hit the knee, at one point it goes click. Thus we would rather think, and see how you want to respond. Like Brigu he kicked Visnu on the chest but He didn’t react. That way Brigu thought. Visnu said, are you alright? He started to rub his foot. My chest is very hard! Ha! ! Ha! So on, in this way He did not respond by some provoking situation. He rather acted in a transcendental way.  How you could do that? Gradually we want to be more and more transcendental. And if someone criticizes or does something provoking, and if they do it to us, we tolerate it. If they do to the guru or Krsna, then we respond. 17-APRIL-2020 SRI MAYAPUR DHAM, INDIA
