Not preaching in Srila Prabhupada's style

    Posted on April 14, 2017

Gurukrpa: That is what I think this disease is with the Siddha's group. They are looking for followers, and they do not preach in your style because they would not attract people. They are after followers, and they do not speak strongly, for then people would go away. That is their idea. They have created their own way to spread Krsna consciousness.

Prabhupada: Yes, that idea is there. They are thinking of their own way. That is bad. We have got so much..., so many literatures. They are printing their own literature and... That is disturbing, yes. What he'll prepare? He's not a liberated person. He's thinking, somebody said, that "I'll give my interpretation on Bhagavata." If these things are going, they are... It is against our principles.

Gurukrpa: You know how to spread Krsna consciousness; therefore I follow. I don't even know what Krsna is. I'm just trying to follow. Therefore that will be successful.

Prabhupada: That is my preaching. What Krsna said, you say as it is. Don't change. How you can give interpretation? And if he thinks that he can give another interpretation, what is this nonsense? Then he's not following guru or Krsna, both. Guru-krsna-krpaya [Cc. Madhya 19.151]. One has to receive the mercy of guru and Krsna. Through guru, Krsna's mercy.
