Jayapataka Swami: By bhajana kriya, by taking initiation, one gradually gets rid of the anartas. Part of the advancement in Krsna consciousness is to get rid of the anartas – anarta nivritti. Then we reach the stage of nista. So if we understand what these anartas are and we systematically perform our devotional service, gradually we can remove the anartas, if we know there is any specific service. But in general, whatever will help you to advance faster in your Krsna consciousness, that will naturally mean that your anarta nivritti will be achieved, your anartas will be nivritti, be cancelled. So we should know what the anartas are and work, strive to neutralize those. Over. Lord Caitanya told about some weeds. He said nisidacar, kutinati, labh, puja, pratista, these are considered weeds. Now some are more subtle like it is described by Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur like one of the anartas is called thick and thin.
