Question by Jagannatha dasi mataji: i have a friend devotee she is almost 70 living alone and i go to visit her from time to time to help if she needs shopping ir so. She is very eager un reading Bhagavat Gita and has brahman initiation but she likes to comment rather inapropriate some times , she does aparadhas some time, should i avoid her or say her where she is wrong?
Answer by @Nitaipreshthji : The only way for her to remove her critical mentality is to do Nitainam Lekhan. Touching Nitai, the most humblest of all Lords and Devotees, instantly makes us stop criticizing others. If she is not willing to do that, no one can help her, including you. It is always the safest for our own Bhakti if we avoid hearing Vaishnava-aparadha at any cost. Unless we save ourselves first, how can we save others?
