Jayapatākā Swami: Usually if you look back we see that many anarthas you have overcome. Anarthanivṛtti starts to kick in very strongly after we take initiation. If you are initiated or you have a śikṣā-guru, then you can ask him how to overcome any anarthas that you see. I was in our temple āśrama in Montreal, Canada, and there was a devotee who was talking in his sleep. So, I felt he was disturbing my sleep. I went to listen to what he was saying. He was saying Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa, Hare Hare/ Hare Rāma, Hare Rāma, Rāma Rāma, Hare Hare! And then I thought alright, I won’t disturb him. He is chanting in his sleep.
