The symptom of love, by Haripada dasa
Years ago, a devotee named Devarsi prabhu translated some things from the books of conversations into Spanish and gave me those translations. I remember reading an interview there between Sria Prabupada and one of his disciples. Srila Prabhupada said that I will play the Christian and you will play Hare Krishna, Srila Prabhupada told him that we have millions and millions of followers, temples, etc., and you are very few, the devotee said, but we have love for God or Krishna and that is the important thing, Srila Prabhupada told him He said that we also have love for God and we go to church and pray to him, the devotee told him that if you had love for God you would obey his orders, Jesus ordered you not to kill and you have the best slaughterhouses, and Srila Prabhupada told him that there It is where I wanted to take you. The symptom that you love God is that you obey his orders. A person who does not know or love God cannot obey God’s orders. Today there are many groups of Christians, and also of Hare Krishnas, so that you are not deceived, you must see if these people are obeying the orders of Jesus and Srila Prabhupada.
One of the points of the philosophy of Krishna consciousness is that we are not interested in the opinions of an ordinary person, ordinary people have four kinds of faults, the first fault is that they tend to make mistakes, another fault is that they are in illusion , the third defect is the propensity to deceive and finally our senses are imperfect. Any opinion other than revealed truth is worthless. Revealed truth means truth, or scripture that comes from a reliable source, the chain of disciplic succession formed by bona fide spiritual masters is the reliable source; since these people are self-realized and pure souls, and they are free from the four defects mentioned above. You can cheat yourself and others, but no one can cheat God or Krishna and His pure devotees.
In Srimad Bhagavatam, 5, 26, 15 Srila Prabhupada says that whether we are Hindus, Muslims or Christians, we all must follow the religious principles that correspond to us. However, whoever invents his own religious path, or does not follow any religious principles, will be punished in hell.
