Jayapatākā Swami: So, especially you want to stay connected with your spiritual master and Kṛṣṇa. Temples Śrīla Prabhupāda said are like hospitals. In the hospital you find sick people. So we are not saying keep contact with the other rogīs, sick people. Keep contact with the nurses, doctors, and good association amongst the patients. I was staying in a hospital in Australia, one of the patients he was always complaining, and he used bad language and cursed the nurses. But because he was in Australia, he got free treatment. I made friends with him and gave some yogurt prasāda. The nurses were complaining ‘why are you giving him, not giving us.’ I said, ‘you can also have.’ So like that we try to preach, try to give care to everyone. Both the gentlemen and the not so gentle.
