We like to bow down unto the lotus feet of that Sadananda Svami Guru—who is the dear most associate of Sri Gaura—now appeared on this earth.

Such an wise (knowledgeable) personality like Śrīla Bhakti Vigyan Bharati Gosvāmī Maharaj is rare in our Gauḍīya-sampradāya. We can remember about Sanatan Gosvāmīpad, Śrīman Mahāprabhu said that— “Such a wise personality like Sanatana is rare in these three worlds.”
The true meaning of loving, affectionate service to Śrī Kṛṣṇa is to engage in His service according to His direct advice, moods and innermost desires. No one else can know this subject matter better than His anukūla-śakti, Śrīmatī Rādhikā. She is the embodiment of pure love for Kṛṣṇa, always absorbed in the mood of serving Him, and She is thus the topmost among all sādhus.
We Gauḍīya Devotees must shout like lion to preach this aprākṛta siddhānta vichar of Śrīla Prabhupāda the Great– without any fear or compromise. Common public must be aware of those factors regarding śuddha-bhakti siddhānta vichar, otherwise all those heartless imposters (or those show-bottels) — they can take undue advantage of the foolishness of those common people. It is very easy to cheat those innocent common people, but nobody can cheat those paramahaṁsa Guru-Vaiṣṇavas.

Gauḍīya Goṣṭhī Pati Śrī Śrīla Bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda said that— “He-Who can completely harmonize his own heart with Guru-padapadma—He is “snigdha-śiṣya” in true sense.” If we can find all same acharan (etiquette) and siddhanta-vichar of Sad Gurudeva in the life of a disciple, then surely, we can identify that he is a “snigdha śiṣya” of Sad Gurudeva.
Can oil and water be mixed? Water and oil can never be mixed, similarly cinmoye attma can never be mixed with matter but still due to māyā (Illusion) it seems the attma in the trap of māyā, but in fact it is not the case. One example is more than...
If we look back into the past history then we can find that this has all along been the usual practice of some scrupulous writers who just want to represent their own writings in the name of some Mahajan like Śrīla Vṛndāvana dāsa Ṭhākura Mahashaya, Śrīla Badu Chandi das, Śrīla Vidyapati, Locan das Ṭhākura, Bilvamangal Ṭhākura etc etc. And in this way, they are making fool of innocent people those who have no idea about actual siddhanta-vichar.
All those līlā-vilas topics of Śrī Kṛṣṇa should not be discussed here and there, very careful about this-very careful. A disciple of Śrīmad Bhaktivinod Ṭhākura can never go to attend hari-katha from those sahajiyās.
We know that in reality- those who follow the path of karma, even if they follow vedic karma, still they are not sādhu. Also, those who follow the path of jñāna or those who follow the path of aṣṭāṅga yoga etc. or even those who are busy to follow the path of tapasyā and austerities, they are not sādhu, because none of them ready to satisfy the Supreme Lord from heart.
Caitanya Mahāprabhu wanted to show us how to get the absolute treasure, the most exclusive thing. That is called gopī- bhava. But we think with anarthas inside heart we can do Kṛṣṇa bhajan. But that is impossible.
All our behavior and activities, I mean acharan should be approved by our Paramahāmsa Gauḍīyā Guruvarga like Śrī Svarūpa Gosāi, Śrīla Sanātana Gosāi, Śrīla R ūpa Gosāi, Śrīla Raguṇath Gosāi or Śrīla Bhaktivinod Thakur, in that case we need not take undue advantage of utilizing the vaiṣṇavi-pratiṣṭhā of our Sad Gurudeva to identify our self in front of public to get false pratiṣṭhā. Rather people should become inquisitive about who is his Gurudeva by watching the perfect acharan and siddhānta-vichar of a snigdha-śiṣya.
Śrīla Saccidananda Bhaktivinod has said that – “rāgānugā-bhakti or rūpānuga-bhajan can never be taught by anybody. If someone claim that “Come on! I can teach you rāgānugā-bhakti or rūpānuga-bhajan.”—then in that case be sure that he is a fraud.” So we should not express that kind of audacity to violate our paramahaṁsa-gauḍī-gāuruvarga and their viśuddha -siddhānta-vichars to establish personal vichar.
If someone does not faithfully follow their Guru, but, following their own idea, behaves virtuously, visits holy places, performs the sixty-four practices of devotion to the Lord, practices renunciation, austerities, nam-saṅkīrtana, japa, meditation, or engages in any other devotional (?) practices, they do not do even a little service to the Lord thereby, rather, they are simply fulfilling the desire to gratify their own senses.
