Srila Prabhupada on gossip

Once Upendra was talking with other devotees while he waited outside Prabhupada’s door.
Prabhupada rang his bell to call Upendra and then asked him, “Who are you talking to?”
Upendra said, “I’m talking to the devotees, Prabhupada.”
Prabhupada said, “What are you talking about?”
Upendra said, “Just about things and other devotees.”
Prabhupada said, “That is gossip. Gossip will destroy this movement.”

Partial transcript from Bhaktivedanta Archives, Chitralekha Dasi’s memories of Srila Prabhupada.

  1. One sane person told once,
    Never say anything to anyone about someone!
    Gossip is a prajalpa also.
    That’s why it’s better to keep silence than to speak nonsense.
    Hare Krishna!
