What is the opinion of Vaisnava acharyas from each of the four sampradayas on the issue of the origin of the jiva? What is the traditional Gaudiya position on this issue? To what extent are Srila Prabhupada's statements in harmony with these positions? Is there are a debate within ISKCON about the nature of jiva's fall down or the GBC position is universally accepted?
This question has been answered by His Grace Gokula Candra Prabhu, a senior disciple of His Holiness Bhakti Vikasa Maharaj upon Maharaj's request.

Question: I have experienced that there is conflict between devotees serving under different leaders: many devotees consider their own service or approach to bhakti as the most authentic, and associating with different genres of devotees sometimes creates confusion in my mind. Why does this conflict emerge although all devotees are engaged in service of Krishna? How can we overcome conflict and instead cooperate to fight against our common enemies, impersonalism and materialism.

Few devotees would like to prepare for second initiation. How shall I prepare them? Do you have some special requirements? I am aware of those standards presented on BVKS.COM. We do not have any brahminical tests in our yatra.
Common practice in CZ is to use flowers for several days as a decoration of the altar (if they still look fresh). Is that ok? I do not feel completely comfortable with it.
While taking prasadam in a house of one grhastha – they were not used to close the altar of Gaura Nitai deities while honoring prasadam. They told us that there is no harm of eating in front of Gaura-Nitai, because they like to see devotees honoring prasadam. This they have supposedly heard from Salem devotees. I have never heard this. Could you please comment?
If a devotee abandons his wife because he fell in love with another married woman and he starts to live with her – to which extend he shall be accepted by other devotees and community of vaisnavas? Is there any way to rectify this act? Can he lead a kirtan in the temple and so on?
Is there any authorized standard of purity for cooking in the kitchen regarding our clothing. In our yatra it is usually set up as a standard to have only completely clean clothing. One is not supposed to cook in the clothes in which he ate or passed water. I didn´t see these standards so strict in India. I personally follow that – but I am not sure what to set up here as a standard. Especially when we are worshiping Guru Gauranga altar in the preaching centre.

Question: I am wanting to ask His Holiness Bhaki Vikasa Swami who and why was the "Some concerns about ISKCON" banned from being presented on his website? I hope that this is part of an agreement to resolve the issues presented in the lecture. Please let everyone know that the lecture can be heard at oneiskcon.com. I have no plans to remove it.

Question: Please clear our doubts regarding the fall down of His Holiness Mahanidhi Maharaja. (1) When people in general see these events they may question why we criticize others, when some of our own leaders fall down, how do we answer them? (2) We want to go out and boldly to speak what Srila Prabhupada taught us, but fear that if someone raises this issue we will not know how to answer him back? By events like these our confidence gets weak.
