513) Whether I know when I can engage in devotional service! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————–People are not dying for want, for want of cigarette smoking. But it is habit. You can give it up. You can give up so many things which is not required at all. So these unwanted things will be automatically vanquished. This is the result of bhajana-kriyä. Not that I am chanting one hand, Hare Krsna, and in another hand, smoking. This is not anartha-nivrtti. The… If actually you are chanting, there will be no more in the other hand, smoking bidi or cigarette. This is called anartha-nivrtti. Then after anartha-nivrtti, then you become cleansed. Yesäm anta-gatam päpam. This is called the freedom stage from all sinful activities. Because unless you are free from all sinful activities, we cannot engage ourself [Ourselves] in devotional service. ——————-
