Any sevā done, for that –how much kṛpā one can get- this lies in the hand of Bhagavan

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.

Vaiṣṇavas are on transcendental platform, so we should not try to find any fault with them

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.

How to understand who is the actual guru-sevāk?

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.

The yardsick set by Śrīman Mahāprabhu

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.

How to recognize who is Sādhu and who is not Sādhu

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.

How to understand who is the actual Guru-sevāk?

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.

Who- how can expect more than what already given by our Paramahamsa Gaudiya Guruvarga?

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.

Anyābhilāsa (separate desire, other than Kṛṣṇa seva)

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.
