Relayed message to Romapada and other ISKCON swamis from Sri Jagadananda Pandit
Srila Prabhupada states in his purport Sri Upadesamrta Verse 1:
"In his book Prema-vivarta, Chapter seven Sri Jagadananda Pandit says: 'My dear brother, you are in the renounced order of life and should not listen to talk about worldly things, nor should you talk about worldly things when you meet with others. Do not think of women even in dreams. You have accepted the renounced order of life with a vow that forbids you to associate with women.
If you wish to associate with Caitanya Mahaprabhu, you must always remember the incident of Chota Haridas and how he was rejected by the Lord. Do not eat luxurious dishes or dress in fine garments, but always remain humble and serve Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha-Krsna in your heart of hearts'.......Unless one is master of his senses, he should not be called gosvami, but go-dasa, servant of the senses."
