Question:

How do we understand the statements of Srila Prabhupada that defy common sense?
My question is not specific to what I could eat to make my body happy, but "how do we understand statements by pure devotees that defy common sense?" One might be able to explain away sentences such as in the purport of CC 2.4.169 Srila Prabhupada mentions that, "One should not eat fish or other non-vegetarian food during the month of Kartika. A non-vegetarian diet means fish and meat. Similarly, masura dhal and urad dhal are also considered non-vegetarian. These two dhals contain a great amount of protein, and food rich in protein is considered non-vegetarian," however if you have to give to an intelligent reader they defy common sense. So, then comes the question of hermeneutics. In our parampara, it is not just important to understand the scriptures, but the writings of acaryas such as Srila Prabhupada. I refuse to compromise myself saying that some parts of Srila Prabhupada's writings from which I can't extract sense from should be avoided.

Will It Lead to Guru Groupism?

September 27, 2011 |

Question: When the disciples hear some criticism (about another sannyasi), from their spiritual master (especially in a lecture), it may happen that they also develop a critical attitude towards that sannyasi and speak things like “this sannyasi is like this, that sannyasi is like that etc…). Do you think this may promote the ongoing guru groupism even more as the devotees will start thinking that my guru is the best and the rest have faults?
