Jayapataka Swami: In Fiji, a particular family owned a grocery store and some of the products in the grocery were meat derivatives. One of the brothers wanted to take initiation. So Srila Prabhupada told him that he should calculate what the meat income was, and except that percent, donate it for prasad distribution or something. Then he gave him initiation. So some formula has to be worked out if this gas station sells meat products. Ideally if they avoid any meat products, a gas station is supposed to sell gas; maybe they sell other snacks like potato chips and so on. So they could avoid meat products. I think. Anyway, we have to take up on an individual basis, what products he sells which are meat type or how he can avoid that or how he can purify that.
