Dandavats Prabhu's and Didi's

I hope this find's you all in good health and spiritual mood

If I may ask a humble question from a lowly and degraded fool, recently I came in contact with some people that I go to school with who use Vapes (or E-cigarettes). My question (i guess) is are these "vapes" (even without added intoxicant's) bad for spiritual life and are they a breach of the four regulative principles (being that it is a type of smoking?) 

Again I hope that this post finds you all in good health and service mood.

  • Yes "equomnimnaty and sameness" is what Krishna is asking for. Krishna has created the perfect reconciliation program,/ prosess and trained-up others to guide us through it.

    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    E-cigarette - does it have nicotine? My guess is yes - if it has nicotine, then it is not to be consumed. 

    Any addictive or intoxicant is detrimental to devotional life. This makes us dependent on the e-cigarette, without which we are not able to concentrate on anything. We are supposed to be intoxicated with the mood of service to guru and Gauranga. Therefore, we cannot afford to be subservient to any other form of intoxication.

    Please refrain from these vapes or e-cigarettes.
