You Should Be Bold

You should be bold. Don’t be weak. My one request is that: if you are married don’t divorce. If there is some problem, no harm. You should try to be together. Not new, new husbands and wives. It is out of Vedic etiquette, Vedic culture.

Then you cannot love Kṛṣṇa. You will sometimes love Kṛṣṇa and then again to māyā. Be one-pointed. From beginning. Begin from the root: Upadeśāmṛta.

Try to give proper honor to proper Vaiṣṇavas. Don’t criticize anyone. Criticize your mind only. Try to give respect to superiors. Try to follow all of my instructions and go on developing Kṛṣṇa consciousness.
