1. Pravrtti, nivrtti, so-called swamis and priests, homosex marriage…

    Pravrtti means sense enjoyment. And nivrtti means self-negation. So when we say that "You shall not have illicit sex," and their inclination is illicit sex, so therefore it is revolutionary. They are materialistic persons. They want sex enjoyment to the best capacity — homosex, this sex, that sex, naked dance, all sexually inclined, pravrtti.

    And we say, "Stop this," nivrtti. They do not like it because asura. Pravrtti jagat. They do not know this is essential. They do not know it. This is essential. Tapasa brahmacaryena [SB 6.1.13]. Tapasya means brahmacarya.

    The so-called swamis, they are coming for this so-called yoga practice but they are themself victim of sex. This is going on. Actually, it is a bluff — they have become swami and teaching some yoga system — because they do not know that one has to stop this first of all. Brahmacaryena. So this bluffing is going on all over the world, and we are speaking just against them. Murkhayopadeso hi prakopaya na santaye. If you give instruction to the rascals, he will simply be angry. He will not take advantage of it. This is our position.

    All the so-called professors, philosophers, they are all in the pravrtti-marga. Therefore they are bringing somebody, "Our interpretation is like this." Pravrtti-marga. Because if they can find out some support from the sastra, then they think, "We are secure." This is going on.

    Pravrttim ca nivrttim jana na vidur asurah. The whole world is full of asuras, descendant of Hiranyakasipu, and it is very difficult. But if we give them chance to chant Hare Krsna mantra, gradually they will understand. Our difficulty: the so-called swamis, priests, popes, they are also in the pravrtti-marga. All these, priests, and they have illicit sex. Pravrtti-marga.

    So they are passing, "Yes, you can have homosex with man." They are getting man-to-man marriage. They are performing the marriage ceremony between man to man in the open church. What class of men they are? And they are priest. Just see. Such degraded persons, drinking… They have got hospital for curing their drinking disease. Five thousand patients in a hospital in
    America, all drunkards, and they are priest. Just see. Simply by dressing long cloak and cross, they have become. In India also, simply having a thread, a brahmana. Two-paisa thread. And by simply one danda, one is sannyasi.
