Is being out of Varnasrama a Disturbance to Society?

Question:

In the verse quoted by Rupa Gosvami,

sruti-smrti-puranadi-

pancaratra-vidhim vina

aikantiki harer bhaktir

utpatayaiva kalpate

Is varnasrama considered part of “sruti-smrti-puranadi-pancaratra-vidhim”? Speaking of myself, I really don’t fall in any asrama and of course varna is the lowest. Is any devotional service or other activities performed by me an unnecessary disturbance in society?

I heard from other devotees and I also personally faced that many people of ISKCON, especially Tamil speaking initiated devotees are now hearing some lectures from "Velukkudi Krishnan," and they appericiate that. Some of the devotees used to go to the Mayavadi's sanga like of Muralidar, Krishna-premi etc.,

Velukkudi Krishnan is now speaking in the televisions also. Sorry say even the brahmin initiated devotees also hear his teachings including those who know English so please kindly guide us what to do. You know that people those who don't want to change themselves will never going to change but at least the innocent people may know what to do.

And, if at all, a disciple thinks that the guru is deviating, is it an offence towards his guru?
