Prabhupāda: So Gītā Bhavan is also imitating?
Haṁsadūta: They're also getting up earlier.
Haṁsadūta: I don't know. (laughs)
Prabhupāda: So this is very important point, Śukadeva Gosvāmī says. This is authority that, naṣṭa-sadācāro dāsyāḥ saṁsarga-dūṣitaḥ (SB 6.1.21). As soon as there will be contamination of illicit sex life, he will be bereft of all good character. This basic principle. And the whole world is now encouraged in that way. So how we can expect good character from the modern man? There is no possibility, if we accept this statement of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam given by Śukadeva Gosvāmī, naṣṭa-sadācāro dāsyāḥ saṁsarga-dūṣitaḥ.
So Ajāmila, being contaminated by that illicit sex life with a prostitute, he lost all his brahminical qualifications, and gradually he was in need of money. Just like the other day I gave you the instance of a big high-court judge, because he was also of that type. I know his private character. He was most debauched, and therefore he wanted money, ten thousand rupees per month. And in spite of his position as a high-court judge and getting four thousand, five thousand salary, he could not check from his falldown.
So this is natural. If you indulge in illicit sex life and naturally other things, intoxication, gambling, then there will be no limit of expenditure. And to meet all those expenditure one has to adopt cheating or stealing. These processes has to be.
