Saṁskāra means behavior. Don’t try to imitate the gopīs and Kṛṣṇa. But you must endeavor to hear attentively with śraddhā, otherwise you cannot do anything. By attentively listening to hari-kathā, the mercy of the Divine Couple and the affection of Kṛṣṇa will inundate your heart. We may remember pastimes of Lord Kṛṣṇa, but do not imitate them—and that is why we have been warned here in no uncertain terms. If you have śraddhā and are taking instruction from a realized, learned, rasika, and bhāva-bhakta, then you must inquire from him most attentively.
