Giriraj Swami: One of Srila Prabhupada’s first disciples was in Calcutta and had started to smoke ganja again. When Srila Prabhupada was told about this, he said, “Tell him that if he does not give up this bad habit of smoking, I will reject him.” One of the devotees asked Srila Prabhupada, “Is that true, that if he doesn’t give up smoking ganja you will reject him?” Srila Prabhupada said, “No. I cannot reject any disciple. I only said that to encourage him to stop smoking.
