Can you smell a lion guru?

Can you smell a lion guru?

Email from yesterday:

Tell me the names of prabhupads discibles who are really following Prabhupads instructions. From whom I can plan to take initiation because most of them are listed in your Website. How to follow KC in Bangalore India?

My response:

You need to read all Srila Prabhupada’s books first. Otherwise, you will never find a bonafide guru.

If you are a cheap follower who is lazy to read Srila Prabhupada’s books, then you will get a puppy guru who will smile from the photo in a completely harmless and retarded way.

Once you understand the mood and the mission of Srila Prabhupada from his books, then you will be a to smell genuine Prabhupada’s follower from miles away.

I consider Bhakti Vikasa Swami one such genuine follower of Srila Prabhupada. But, what do I know, responsibility for choosing the proper guru is exclusively yours. If you make wrong choice, you can only blame yourself.

Just listen to lectures by Prabhupada’s disciples and see who is preaching like a lion, who is destroying deviations, who is giving 100% of Prabhupada’s teachings, not only the parts that people like.

Also see who is a sannyasi who travels with a girlfriend, who is a guru who is preaching that Lord Caitanya ate mushrooms, who is a guru who is associating with mayavadis and preaching about love and compassion all the time. You will never understand what is wrong with these people if you don’t read Srila Prabhupada’s books.
