Sankirtan Devotees

ASK BVKS | February 19, 2012 |

Question:

Why is the term 'sankirtan devotees' so commonly used in ISKCON nowadays to address book/prasadam distributors? As I understood it from HDG Srila Prabhupada's books, we are all supposed to be sankirtan devotees, because we are part of Sri Caitanya's sankirtan mission. Not being a 'sankirtan devotee' is fatal in this respect. I looked through the Vedabase and Srila Prabhupada never used the term himself, which is kind of suspicious. Thank you very much for clarification.

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.
