Can Christianity be Accepted as a Part of Vaisnava Life?

October 31, 2013 |

Question: How has Christianity come to be accepted as part of Vaishnava life? There are several devotees I know who also claim to be Christians, how can this be? I do not see how these two can go together since they worship different gods. The biblical father god encouraged blood offerings for sin, that is NOT Krishna consciousness or at least not as I see it. I may be wrong about this so I decided to write to you for an answer.

Following Srila Prabhupada Outside ISKCON

Question:

I have two doubts, I hope you can show some light.

After Srila Prabhupada disappearance, many former ISKCON devotees moves to another branches of the Gaudiya Matha and take shelter in many senior vaisnavas disciples of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur (actually Srila Prabhupada godbrothers: Srila Sridhara Maharaj, Srila Puri Maharaj, etc.) and many of them even started with success their own missions (Tripurari Maharaj, Narasingha Maharaj, etc.). I want to ask you if it is posible to follow Srila Prabhupada and became a bonafide Prabhupadanuga outside ISKCON or if it´s just a "degree" that someone can attain only being a member of ISKCON?

On the other hand, for the last 30 years Srila Prabhupada godbrothers acknowleged Him as "Saktiavesa Avatara" or "Jagad Guru" and celebrate in their respective maths His abirbhava and tirobhava (Sri Gopinath Matha, Sri Caitanya Saraswat Matha, Sri Caitanya Gaudiya Matha, etc). Furthermore Srila Jayapataka Swami started Sarasvasta Gaudiya Vaisnava Association and Srila Paramadvaiti (aka Alanath Swami) World Vaisnava Association as well, to reunite all the branches of the "Bhaktisidhanta Parampara". So, how it is that even today it seems to be so difficult to many ISKCON leaders to accept "as bonafide as ISKCON" any other branch of the Gaudiya Matha in the light that all of them came from the same seed (Srila Bhaktisiddhanta) and in opposition they point Srila Prabhupada (or ISKCON gurus) as the only bonafide acaryas for humankind? Can you please Maharaj help me to understand this in a propper way and mood?

Question:

I've one particular doubt regarding criticizing of Bogus gurus, sadhus etc. Whether a devotee should criticize and speak harshly about such scruplous persons in the community of devotees or not? Some devotees say that its better to stay away from criticizing anyone. They say that gradually that will lead one to the platform of criticizing devotees. Is it true? Is it so that if a devotee (of any level) doesn't criticize such persons, he is supporting them or he's soft hearted? Does criticizing such persons help us Advancing in Bhakti? Can Kanishtas do this? I'm confused and need Some guidance maharaj.
