    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,

    PAMHO.

    The translation is as under:

    In the four months called Chaturmas beginning from Dev Shayan Ekadasi in the waxing periof of the month of Aashaar till Dev Uthni ekadasi of waxing period of the month of Kartik, Lord Vishnu is sleeping.

    Due to rainy season also, saints and renunciants etc stop their activities of roaming around the world for the benefit of mankind. A lot of munis also stop the roaming activity because in the monsoons, the creepy crawlies come out of their houses onto the road, so as to avoid killing them.

    Now coming to your question.....

    In the event of not travelling in this 4 months period, they concentrate on self study, sadhana etc.

    People concentrate on their presiding lord. We Gaudiya Vaishnavas do japa and kirtan of the names of the lord. Incidentally, in the movement of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, nobody stops the preaching of harinaam - the holy names of the lord. Quite the oppostire, for the pleasure of the lord, devotees increase the preaching of the lord.

    One should defnitely increase one's sadhana and self study  but not at the cost of preaching activity.

    Please forgive me. I have tried to translate to the closest.

    Haribol,

    Your servant,

    Rashmi

    चातुर्मास में आषाढ़ शुक्ल "शयन" एकादशी से कार्तिक शुक्ल "उत्थान" एकादशी के बीच विष्णु निद्रा में रहते हैं । 
    वर्षा ऋतू के कारण भी साधू सन्यासी इत्यादि लोक-कल्याण हेतु भ्रमण इन चार महीनों के लिए रोक देते हैं । कई मुनिजन इस लिए भी भ्रमण नहीं करते क्योंकि वर्षा काल में कीड़े मकोड़े अपने बिलों से निकालकर मार्ग में आ जाते हैं, तो जीव हत्या से बचने के लिए भी भ्रमण स्थगित किया जाता है । 

    अब आपका प्रश्न .... 

    चातुर्मास में भ्रमण न करने की स्थिति में वे स्वाध्याय, साधना इत्यादि पर ध्यान केंद्रित करते हैं ।

    जो जिसका आराध्य है वो उसकी उपासना करने पर ध्यान केंद्रित करता है। हम गौड़ीय वैष्णव भगवान कृष्ण के नाम का जप, कीर्तन इत्यादि करते हैं । वैसे चैतन्य महाप्रभु के आंदोलन में कोई हरिनाम के प्रचार को स्थगित नहीं करता । इसके विपरीत, भगवान की प्रसन्नता हेतु भक्तगण प्रचार कार्य को और अधिक बढ़ा देते हैं । 
    स्वयं की साधना एवं स्वाध्याय अवश्य बढ़ा देना चाहिए पर प्रचार में कमी करके नहीं । 

    • Hare Krishna,
