Besides 4 regulative principles as described in holy scriptures, there are also 2 other compulsory things to avoid – kaitava (cheating tendency and hypocrisy) and mansarata (evil enviousness). Those two things must be strongly rejected in our lives. The fall down in some devotees’ life caused by these – cheating, hypocrisy and enviousness is considered a worse type of fall down than the type of fall down caused by some normal sexual affairs. Devotees should understand and realize about it. Dirty political mentality, cheating political character and having evil enviousness (I am not talking about the positive type of constructive enviousness) is the great enemy of devotees’ life, as clearly described in Srimad Bhagavatam in one of its introductory verses:
dharmaḥ projjhita-kaitavo ’tra paramo nirmatsarāṇāṁ satāṁ vedyaṁ vāstavam atra vastu śivadaṁ tāpa-trayonmūlanam
Bhagavata dharma is meant only for those good hearts, high-class persons, who are completely free of all cheating propensities and evil enviousness. Dharma means Bhagavata dharma and kaitava means cheating activities, cheating mentality. Projjhita means „hatefully rejected“, or „hatefully thrown away“. Projjhitam means prakṛṣța rūpeņa ujjhitam – very strongly thrown away, rejected. This applies also to evil enviousness. So cheating, deception and evil enviousness have been hatefully rejected in the lives of those, who are practicing this Bhagavata dharma – pure Krishna consciousness.
I mean to say that all kinds of cheating, hypocritical activities, and evil enviousness have been totally prohibited. If a devotee cannot follow this, he is also breaking a regulative principle. Political cheating temperament, cheating activities and evil envy are very detrimental and harmful to the progress of spiritual life. So I wanted to draw the devotee´s attention to the fact that besides the 4 regulative principles of no meat-eating, no illicit sex, no gambling and no intoxication there are also two others that must be added – no cheating or deception and no evil enviousness. Those last two can cause a much greater fall down in someone´s life compared to a fall down caused by some normal sexual affairs.
