Gauḍīya Goṣṭhī Pathi Śrī Śrīla Bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda told that—”Those who are the flag holder of Bhagavat Dharma, their acharan can lead all bonded soul into more and more bonded condition.”
Śrīla Saccidānanda Bhaktivinod Thākura told that—”There is no worse association in the whole world than that of a dharmadvaji. One should rather associate with sense enjoyers. Being deceitful, the dharmadvajis take on the appearance of devotees with a desire to cheat everyone, and to fulfill their crooked desires, they cheat the foolish by helping them in their rascaldom. Some of the dharmadvajis become gurus and others become disciples, and by trickery, they accumulate wealth, women, false prestige, and material assets. If one gives up the association of crooked hypocrites, one can honestly engage in devotional service.”
Common people are so ignorant that when they try to step into spiritual life, usually most of them are bound to follow those so-called devotees–those who only externally exhibit some false acharan (false etiquette) which are not matching with their tall talkings (lectures). This is the situation at present in the whole world. In the name of so called spirituality people are mislead. Recognizing this kind of fallen condition of this society, Śrīla Prabhupāda told with heavy heart that—”Devotees those who are not going to misguide people, at present they are not getting any respect in our society. At present, those who can misguide people in the name of hari-katha-kīrtan they can get labha-puja -pratiṣṭhāvery easily. This is the very painful situation of our society, not only that but also this has became a usual fashion of the days. People want to be cheated by them, so they become cheated. Real devotees, those who want to expose those nondevotees or cheaters, usually those cheaters (non-devotees) want to point out them (honest devotees) as fraud and thieves.” This way they like to get some way out of their mass cheating program- Maya anyhow will not allow people to become sincere. Rather, Maya can arrange (or plan) so many tricky ways to keep people away from the association of real devotees. Those pure devotees who all are going to take life risk to discuss about the absolute truth, common people (or so called Vaiṣṇava society) they like to avoid them. Day by day their aversive mood going to take such a sharp turn for the worse that it is really beyond our imagination. Degradation of humanity is really painful.
One day at Śrī Caitanya Maṭha in the noontime- Śrīla Prabhupāda was given mahā-prasādam plate by his sevak Paramamnada Prabhu and gone to some other place for seva, but after long gapping when he came back into the room of Śrīla Prabhupāda , he was very surprised to discover that Prabhupāda was continuously looking at the garden with some special thoughts without taking prasādam at all. He was bound to put question to Śrīla Prabhupāda with great surprise that—”Prabhupāda ! What happens to you, why still now you are not taking prasādam? What you are thinking about? What you are looking for outside the window there in the garden? “
Śrīla Prabhupāda broke his silence and with heavy heart started speaking-“I am watching that all your good luck have already burned up. I wanted to give so many invaluable jewels, but what to do, nobody want to get those valuable treasure.”
At present also we can see the naked picture of our society. We are very sorry to see the degradation of humanity of our society. What is going on in the name of Visva Vaiṣṇava Raja saba? At Present we cannot understand the real purpose for what the Organization is going on. Nobody really interested to protect and preserve sampradaik interest in true sense. To protect the dignity of Śrī Gauḍīya Maṭha and to highlight the teachings and Idealism of Gauḍīya Maṭha should be our only goal of life.
A true Sampradaik Ācārya can be known by his authentic activity about how much he is really interested to protect Sampradaik Vani Vaibhava-without changing any siddhanta vichar. Who is how much interested to stop wrong preaching that can give the real identity of one Ācārya. A perfect Ācārya can never tolerate any nonsense or can never compromise with any wrong siddhanta of any sahajiyā.
Even if anywhere in our own sampradāya something going against suddha bhakti, we must protest heavily against that, even if we need to leave that place at once, still it is good for us. Gauḍīya Maṭha is our heart, we can tear our heart and can show that Gurudeva, Śrīla Prabhupāda, Śrīla Bhaktivinod Thākura, I mean all our Gauḍīya Guruvarga sitting there inside of heart together with Śrī Gaurāṅga Mahāprabhu.
People may try to kill us, or can try their best to tarnish our good name & fame, but still we can never make any compromise with them. Our Guruvarga also told that—”We do, and we continue to do so many things contrary to the orders of our Gurudeva and Guruvarga. Do you think that our Gurudeva is an ordinary person? He has given order to us only to follow the path of pure devotion. No one should do anything other than that. Still we continue to do otherwise, then we are bound to reap the fruits of our fanciful activities, so we must be very careful. Without the grace of Guru-Vaiṣṇava we cannot attain our true welfare. If we do not follow Guru-Vaiṣṇava- then we cannot get anything. If we cannot follow Mahāprabhu in toto, then we cannot get anything. Without which all Zero, zero , zero.
