Question:

How was it possible that Sukadeva Goswami became an impersonalist (Brahmavadi) but then became attracted to Krishna’s personalistic activities?

I ask this because I have heard from senior devotees that Suka is parrot of Radharani and that in his form as a parrot, he heard Bhagavatam from Lord Siva while he was explaining it to Mother Parvathi.

Also Sukadeva Goswami remained in the womb of his mother (Bitika) for around 16 years as he refused to come out. But after Krishna assured him that he will not be attracted by His Maya energy, then he came out. This means that Suka knows Krishna is supreme. Then how did he become an impersonalist.

Question: What is the status of books written by sannyasis who have either fallen since writing them, or else left ISKCON? I'm thinking in particular of Harikesa Swami's "Varnasrama Manifesto for Social Sanity," or the books of Bhaktipada Maharaj. Is it still acceptable to take guidance from them?
