Avoid prajalpa

    Posted on November 15, 2014



Русский перевод

...prajalpah, talking nonsense, gossiping some subject matter which has no concern with Krsna consciousness. We are accustomed to do that. We should avoid it.

>>> Ref. VedaBase => Departure Lecture -- February 25, 1975, Caracas


For one who is a devotee of the Lord, there is no service other than serving the Lord.  Such a person is a sadhu.  All these sadhus who are here do not talk unnecessarily.  It is appropriate for a devotee to talk and chant Krsna's names only.  Unnecessary talking will result in loss of life span only, no benefit in that.  That is why the scriptures say, vacamsi vaikuntha-gunanuvarnane.

If you talk it should be relating to the Lord residing in Vaikuntha.  Not about some cinema actresses. sravanam kirtanam visnoh, if you want to hear about someone, hear about the topics relating to Lord Vishnu.  And if you want to talk about someone the talk about the pastimes of the Lord only. Sravanam kirtanam visnoh.
