When a Guru Deviates

ASK BVKS | September 27, 2011 |

English;

Question:

If a disciple is seeing that the guru is deviating from the original path and not following the words of Srila Prabhupada (for e.g. by promoting philanthropic activities), then what is the duty of the disciple and who should correct the guru? And, if at all, a disciple thinks that the guru is deviating, is it an offence towards his guru?

Question:

My question is regarding deity outfits. On Nrsimha Caturdasi, at an ISKCON temple in Germany, the deity of lord Nrsimhadev was dressed/pasted with different flavours/colours of sandesh milk sweet dough instead of any sort of cloth outfit. 

Maharaja, my question is that is the above performed act, proper and in line with the scriptural rules of deity worship, just as during chandan yatra the deities are pasted with sandalwood paste or just as there are flower outfits for the deities in many temples? Or is it not to be accepted. I mean something similar to the previous incident of the deities dressed in Santa Claus outfits?
