How Can We Help?

Table of Contents

Question: As you said in today’s class if we associate with more pure devotees, we can overcome our offenses, but how do we avoid offences from non-devotees who rarely believe in Kṛṣṇa or chanting, although we are sometimes bound to be in touch with them? If you could please suggest what should we do here?

Jayapatākā Swami: Thank you my dear spiritual daughter. Although we have to associate with non-devotees we should not intimately associate with them. And if we try to give them the holy name, try to give them Bhagavad-gītā that will be very effective. We don’t take their association; we give them our association. Vidura did not go to Dhṛtarāṣṭra to get his satsaṅga, he went to give his satsaṅga to Dhṛtarāṣṭra. When we meet non-devotees we should think how to bring the person closer to Kṛṣṇa not to engage in prajalpa with them. Thank you my dear spiritual daughter for your question.
