Dishonest men cannot go to back to home, back to Godhead. That is false. God is pure. One must be very, very pure. A thing which is not fire, it cannot be allowed to enter into the fire. One must become fire; then there is no trouble. Fire can enter fire

Prabhupāda: What are the rules and regulations?

Kathy: No illicit sex, no meat-eating, no intoxication and no gambling.

Prabhupāda: So your spiritual name is Kajjalī dāsī. Kṛṣṇa's, what is called? What?

Pradyumna: Mascara?

Prabhupāda: Huh?

Pradyumna: Anjan.

Prabhupāda: Anjan. What is the English, I want to know.

Devotee: Balm.

Prabhupāda: Huh?

Devotee: Balm.

Prabhupāda: Bon? The kind of ointment which Kṛṣṇa uses. So you’ll be always near the eyes of Kṛṣṇa.

Devotees: Jaya!

Prabhupāda: So, now you can perform, and let us go.

Devotee: Yes.

Prabhupāda: So you can keep this money? (break) Six principles will increase your devotional service. The first principle is utsāhāt. Utsāhāt means "enthusiasm." One must be determined that "This life I shall not die like cats and dogs. This life I shall die in such a way that immediately I go to Kṛṣṇa." That is stated in the... Tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma naiti (BG 4.9). This generally transmigration takes place in so many different varieties of life, but one who has perfected his devotional life, he immediately, after death, he goes to Kṛṣṇa. Tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma naiti mām eti. So this is the determination, that this life. That is called utsāhāt, enthusiasm. One should be very much enthused, "Oh, I am going to Kṛṣṇa, in the spiritual world." How much enthusiasm you should feel. So that is utsāhāt. And dhairyāt—and one has to become very tolerant, because so many things will disturb. Caitanya Mahaprābhu therefore said that, tṛṇād api sunīcena, taror api sahiṣṇunā (Śikṣāṣṭaka 3). We have to tolerate. We have to do our business. Just like Prahlāda Mahārāja. So much tribulation, even his father became enemy. So Kṛṣṇa consciousness is like that—even one's father becomes enemy, what to speak of others. You will be criticized, you will chastised, you will put into inconvenience, you will be arrested by police, so many things, but one has to tolerate. Utsāhāt dhairyāt. Tat-tat-karma-pravartanāt (Upadeśāmṛta 3). But the duties must be done.

The sixteen rounds must be chanted. Rise early in the morning, go… All the duties must be done. Tat-tat-karma-pravartanāt. Sato vṛtteḥ, and one must be very honest, not dishonest. Dishonest men cannot go to back to home, back to Godhead. That is false. God is pure. One must be very, very pure. A thing which is not fire, it cannot be allowed to enter into the fire. One must become fire; then there is no trouble. Fire can enter fire. So, sato vṛtteḥ sādhu-saṅga, and always keep company with devotees. Don’t keep company with nondevotee. Then it…, everything will be spoiled. Sato vṛtteḥ, sādhu-saṅga, ṣaḍbhir bhaktiḥ. Saḍbhir, six. Utsāhāt, dhairyāt, niścayāt, firm conviction. Utsāhāt, dhairyāt, niścayāt, tat-tat-karma-pravartanāt, sato vṛtteḥ sādhu-saṅga (Upadeśāmṛta 3). Six. If you keep these six principles always before you, you’ll never fail; you’ll make progress. Thank you very much.
