Pandava Nirjala Ekadasi and Preaching

Prabhupada: [On] Ekadasi, simply you should chant. No other business. Nirjala!

Tamal Krsna Maharaja: No preaching work? Should they go out for preaching?

Prabhupada: No, those who are preaching, (it’s) not for them… A preacher is so exalted. He hasn’t got to follow any regulation. If one is busy in preaching work that is first-class. Madhava Maharaja, when he was a brahmacari, his name was Hayagriva. So he was to go somewhere. But he was sick. Guru Maharaja was informed that he was sick and that, “Today is ekadasi. He cannot take his regular meals.” So Guru Maharaja said, “No. Let him take immediately meals and go.”

Revatinandana: For preaching.
