Deviation of Jainism

November 15, 2011 |

Question: We know from Srimad Bhagavatam that Rsabhadeva is an incarnation of Lord Visnu. My question is then why that Jains follow the teachings of Lord Rsabhadeva as separate religion and set of practices distinct from Vaisanava principles. How did teachings of Lord get misinterpreted to such an extent that a new religion was born?

Different Shades of Saffron

January 6, 2014 |

Question: Why do different saffron renunciants wear different shades of saffron in different temples even if they are initiated by the same Guru (for example, Pune and Chowpatty)? I am not even sure why different sannyasi gurus wear different shades of saffron either. The question I wanted to ask is that since we are all one family; why don't we have one standard?
