How Tamaal Krishna Stopped Smoking Cigarettes?

Tamaal Krishna Goswami with His Divine Grace Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Tamaal Krishna Goswami: Before I met you, Srila Prabhupada, I was smoking cigarettes. So I tried to stop smoking so many times because someone would say it is bad for health. But when you said it is bad for spiritual life, then I could stop, because no one ever said that before, that these things are against spiritual life. No one ever said that. Everything is put on such a mundane level that no one cares. But when we’re told that “You are spirit, and this is against your spiritual life,” then it hits very deeply. Apart from you, no one has ever said anything about spiritual life in the West.

Prabhupada: They do not know what is spirit, what is spiritual life. Everywhere. In India also.

Tamaal Krishna Goswami: There’s nothing like your books, Srila Prabhupada, anywhere. There’s no such thing like that. And now they’re gracing the homes of millions and millions of people’s shelves.
