    Hare Krishna,

    All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

    We should try  to deliver this message that doing GOSSIPING is not only an aparadha but will generate a negative energy and attitude between the fellow beings, as after doing this our neither our mind nor our heart can ever stay happy.  

    And if we fails to do so then its always better to leave that place and ask for mercy from Lord Krishna for them and for us by chanting the Maha Mantra.


    Hare Krishna !!

    Prabhupada said, that we must put our tongue vibrating the Holy Names of Krishna.

    Please take up Sankirtana, Temple Kirtan, and Japa. Eat Prasadam all the time and soon prajalpa will automatically reduce.

      8 Types of Prajalpa

      Bhaktivinoda Thakura's Piyusa-varsini commentary on Sri Upedeshamrta.

      Prajalpa which spoils bhakti is categorized by Bhaktivinoda Thakura into the following 8 categories:

      1. Useless talks(not about Lord Hari)
      2. Arguments(godless quarrels like nyaya & vaisesika not based on the Vedas)
      3. Gossip(talking about other people to establish one's reputation)
      4. Debates(desire for conquest)
      5. Fault-finding in others(imposing one's bad habits on others)
      6. Speaking falsehoods(because of one's self-interest)
      7. Blaspheming devotees(the worst)
      8. Worldly talk(devoid of God consciousness)

        Immediately start clapping loudly and LOUDLY CHANT.. HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA..


        This method can even keep negative thoughts away.

        This idea was given by Bhakti Vinod Thakore on how to keep from bad thoughts.

          Stop Prajalpa
