The Offenses for Imitating a Vaisnava

The Offenses for Imitating a Vaisnava

We can understand from these different activities that describe the immortal character of Srila Gaurakisora, that persons who came to serve this mahabhagavat with a cheating mentality received in return terrible reactions for their sinful activities. A person who disregards the instructions of a pure devotee of the Lord, but associates instead with show bottelists and deceitful persons dressed as Vaisnavas and renunciates can never have the real benefit of life. Rather their actions result in a fearsome and terrible state of ruination. Those who engaged in any type of deceptive activity in the presence of Srila Gaurakisora, or who were attached to the sense objects or others engaged in illicit sex, became degraded due to their offenses. Offenses committed to the holy name and the Vaisnavas often devastates the practitioner.


 As infracções para imitar um Vaisnava

Podemos entender a partir dessas diferentes atividades que descrevem o personagem imortal de Srila Gaurakisora​​, que as pessoas que vieram para atender a esse mahabhagavat com uma mentalidade de fazer batota recebeu em troca reações terríveis para suas atividades pecaminosas. Uma pessoa que ignora as instruções de um devoto puro do Senhor, mas ao invés associados com bottelists show e pessoas vestidas como fraudulentos Vaisnavas e renunciantes nunca pode ter o benefício real da vida. Em vez suas ações resultam em um estado terrível e terrível ruína. Aqueles que se envolveram em qualquer tipo de atividade enganosa na presença de Srila Gaurakisora​​, ou que foram anexados aos objetos dos sentidos ou outras pessoas envolvidas em sexo ilícito, tornou-se degradada devido a seus crimes. Infracções cometidas ao nome do santo e os Vaisnavas muitas vezes devasta o praticante.

Guru Position Paper

Dear devotees,

Please accept our dandavat pranams. All glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga.

Since the departure of our beloved Gurudeva, Nitya-lila pravista Om Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, the Sannyasa Council in consultation with the members of the Bhakti Trust International, senior math commanders and eminent preachers, has begun the process of developing and codifying the principles and aims of our sanga, known as the International Pure Bhakti Yoga Society. Sri Guru is always present in his instructions and within the hearts of sincere disciples. We pray fervently that Srila Gurudeva guide us in our humble attempts to fulfill his mano bhista. Our discussions thus far have resulted in two papers that are being presented for your consideration.

Our Society, as envisioned by Srila Gurudeva, has many responsibilities and yet has a distinctive inclination towards encouraging individual initiative and decision making on the local level. The institution or society has as its primary responsibility, the preservation and teaching of the eternal spiritual principles conveyed by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu through our guru-parampara . The form that our society takes and any guidelines and bylaws that we may adopt, are meant to follow and uphold those principles.

Thus you will see in the two papers that are presented, that there is little in the way of rules and regulations. The topic is mostly guru-tattva and how we are responding to the complexities of that issue now that there are multiple devotees taking on that role within the same society. The emphasis is to clarify our spiritual relationships and our mutual goals. The processes by which we achieve these may be adjusted according to time, place and circumstance, as long as the original principles remain fixed as our guiding beacon.

The first paper on guru-tattva was written to be presented at the Vraja-mandala Parikrama of 2011. There were some issues that had not yet been discussed by the international body of sannyasis and senior devotees. We waited for those meetings to be concluded so that a summary of those discussions could be given at the same time. These meetings addressed the practical application of the guru-tattva paper based on the experiences gained and input received from members of the world-wide sanga over the last 9 months. The second paper is a summary of the meetings held in Govardhana during the parikrama in November, 2011.

These papers will certainly stimulate discussion and responses from devotees around the world. That is a good thing. Please keep the discussions philosophical and respectful. The discussions may center around guru-tattva or they may explore other areas of personal and sanga development. This is a challenging and exciting time. Let your voices be heard.

Aspiring for the service of Hari, Guru and Vaisnavas,

Swami BV Vaikhanas
