The difficulty

The difficulty

Srila Prabhupada writes:

The difficulty is sometimes things are interpreted in a manner dovetailing one’s own sense gratification. I have got this personal experience in my Guru Maharaja’s institution. Different Godbrothers took the words of Guru Maharaja in different interpretations for sense gratification and the whole mission disrupted. (Letter to Tamala Krishna, Oct 18, 1969)

As you can see, Srila Prabhupada predicted Krishna West long before, and similar deviations already appeared in the past.

Still, if you think that lying on the beach in karmi clothes constitutes service to Krishna, you have my condolences. As pure devotees don’t spend a single moment without serving Krishna, this process of devotional service should be called beachanam.

Sravanam kirtanam visnoh, beachanam pada sevantam
