Avoid association of the offensive people

Well we have to be very careful because some of the some of the people with… with him are very envious of the Krishna conscious movement, they want to discourage people and they’re very diplomatic in presenting it, but the actual idea is… and they have somewhat different philosophy, which some of them are offensive, so we generally try to just avoid their association, you have some, you don’t wanna be, at least out on the street, you don’t have to run away holding your ears or something but of course you can do that if they something offensive but just avoid the association. Maybe later on, things will improve, but there is some people there who are, inimical and so that we don’t… because just to avoid hearing any offenses or better to avoid. They can’t do anything to help us, but they do something to harm us at the present time.
