We should vow to accept only what is favorable for the development of bhakti. We should go wherever there are sādhus; they are our good friends. There is no need for a big gathering; go to any place that is favorable. Where there is kṛṣṇa-guṇa-gāna, nāma-kīrtana, prasādam, and where bhakti’s rules and regulations are being followed—go to that favorable place. We should not go to a big gathering where there are politics. So many things are present there but there is no cultivation of devotion, bhakti-anuśīlana.

Many people make a show that they are following bhakti, but this is actually only as a business. Their view, aim, and object is only business—body business, mind business, health business, and pratiṣṭhā, name and fame. They think, “I am Guru; I am Ācārya.” And they insult others. All this is unfavorable, pratikūla. If you need anything, pray to Kṛṣṇa, His associates, and to the Vraja-devīs. Pray to the holy dhāma. The followers of the Vrajavāsīs and Vraja-devīs reside here.
