Reflection and Original
ASK BVKS | March 4, 2011 |
I heard from some devotee that everything present here in this world is the perverted form or the reflection of the original things present in the spiritual world. So please explain me the positive form of sex and sexual desires.

Question: Srila Prabhupada often mentions in his lectures that his mission would be complete if he could make one pure devotee. Is this statement used out of humility by Srila Prabhupada? What is the definition of a pure devotee? Does it mean that there is no pure devotee in ISKCON? Please can you kindly throw some more insights on this topic.

Following on this topic, there is a very unusual but common understanding among devotees which prevents them from understanding and thinking about the points that you have discussed in your lecture on this topic.
Their understanding is that "Every Guru in ISKCON has a different mood and thus a different way of pleasing Srila Prabhupada. So all of them are right in their own capacity" For eg: H H Indradyumna Swami preaches by telling stories, H H Bhakti Marg Swami preaches by walking around Canada, H H Jayapataka Swami preaches by travelling extensively throughout the world, likewise every Guru has a different way of preaching. This thought is more prevalent in a multi guru scenario where disciples of various gurus are in the same congregation. One example, could be Damodardesh. If all devotees start thinking like this, there will be a day when there won't be any difference between right and wrong.
