Kicking out newspapers
Posted on August 12, 2015
These Americans boys who have come to Krsna consciousness, they have kicked out newspaper. No more newspaper. Because there is no krsna-katha, they don't like to read it. This is called bhaktih paresanubhavo viraktir anyatra syat [SB 11.2.42]. This is the test. We do not know what is the happening daily. It is, it does not matter, newspaper. It is a waste of time. Better that time read some literature like Srimad-Bhagavatam, Bhagavad-gita. You'll be benefited. Why you should waste the valuable time of your life?
