How to become pure / dangers of thinking "Guru is Ordinary"

See entire lecture here:

PART OF LECTURE: ... "Vaisnava aparadha is a great offense. You know Ambarisa Maharaja. He was a devotee, and he Durvasa, he was very proud of his yogic power, and he committed offense at the feet of Ambarisa Maharaja, and he was punished by Krsna by sending the sudarsana-cakra. And he wanted help from so many, Brahma, Visnu. He could go directly to the Visnuloka, but he was not pardoned.

He had to come to Vaisnava, Ambarisa Maharaja, fall down at his lotus feet. And he, of course, Vaisnava, immediately excused him. So Vaisnava aparadha is great offense, hati-mata. So we should be very careful about Vaisnava aparadha. We should not Arcye visnu sila-dhir gurusu nara-matir vaisnava-jati-buddhih.

The vaisnava-jati-buddhih is also another offense, great offense. Similarly, to think of guru as ordinary human being, that is also offense. To think of Deity as made of metal, stone, that is These are offenses. Sa naraki. So we should be very careful about the regulative principles and follow the footprints of Vaisnava. Mahajano yena sa gatah. Don't think that Prahlada Maharaja is ordinary boy. We should learn from Prahlada Maharaja how to advance in devotional service.

[PADA NOTE: This has been the whole problem since 1977, the leaders of ISKCON have been saying that gurus are even worse than the ordinary man, because -- gurus fall down into illicit sex, drugs, criminal actions and so on. 

In other words, the leaders of ISKCON are not advanced enough to promote the worship of ordinary men, instead they find very degraded people to become their gurus. Notice the warning here -- "Sa Naraki." -- "Anyone who says gurus are ordinary men, are residents of Narakah, or hell." 

No wonder the GBC gurus do not like PADA, we have reminded them of this warning since 1977, gurusuh narah matih -- narakah sah, its a severe offense to say gurus are ordinary and fallen, what to speak of debauchees -- as the GBC gurus seem to be falling into on a regular basis. ys pd] 


  1. Rocana and his mob of charlatans: Thats were ritvik ends - when the guru is dead

    1. Finally the evidence supporting the GBC gurus. Does it mean that Srila Prabhupada is contradicting himself? Srila Prabhupada would never contradict himself. It is most of us who do not have the proper understanding of Srila Prabhupada's different instructions. Different instructions for different people, time, place and circumstances. How to understand them? Very simple, just follow them. That's all! No need to bring them out and show as a relic. Just follow! Be humble, accept your guru's instruction and follow them. Try to please your guru. Then Krsna will be satisfied. And then, everyone else will be satisfied. Don't fight with each other! We can not understand Srila Prabhupada on our mental plane. Better to be humble, and follow the instructions. Simple as it is!
