Jayapataka Swami: Sastra tells us how to respond to offences. If you can defeat that person’s argument, that is the first thing. If you cannot do that, then you can walk away from that place. Otherwise, you can leave your body and go back to Godhead, But, you should not artificially commit suicide, that is just you spontaneously leave your body. Like, Sati, when she heard the offence against Lord Siva, her husband, from her father Daksa, she just left her body, spontaneously. So, these three things are given. At least you can protest, that you know that this is not true. If because of age or something, relationship, and they may not listen to you, at least it should go on records that what they are saying is not true.
