Jayapatākā Swami: This is the International Society for Kṛṣṇa Consciousness. Not that you should be focused on bad experiences, that would distract your Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Some bad behavior we may be committed that we would not like to do such bad behavior with others, but other than that we really don’t want to be focused on bad experiences, other than thinking how to avoid such activities. We see that Lord Nityānanda, He was merciful. Even though He was hit on the head with a wine bottle, He did not feel any anger or jealousy to that person. He wanted to give mercy to that person. So like that, everybody in the material world has some defect and we try to avoid committing mistakes, having defects in our spiritual life.
