Q&A: Are You Rtvik Devotees?

The following is an answer to a question posted on our Youtube channel and answered by His Grace Purujit dasa.

Ryan: Hare Krsna please accept my humble obeicences. How are you? I have seen you on YouTube. Are you rtvik devotees?

Purujit: Hare Krishna, dear Ryan. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. Bhaktivedanta Lives in Sound Society is an international society for Krishna consciousness whose aim is to expand the number of temples where the devotees follow and preserve the mission of His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. So far I am concerned designations such as rtvik or non-rtvik simply divide the devotional community and divert from the real focus, namely saving the world from the path of destruction. We should try to discriminate amongs devotees based on their understanding of the Krishna conscious philosophy and how they apply it in practical life. arcye visnau sila-dhir gurusu nara-matir vaisnave jati-buddhir visnor va vaisnavanam kali-mala-mathane pada-tirthe 'mbu-buddhih sri-visnor namni mantre sakala-kalusa-he sabda-samanya-buddhir visnau sarvesvarese tad-itara-sama-dhir yasya va naraki sah "One who thinks the Deity in the temple to be made of wood or stone, who thinks of the spiritual master in the disciplic succession as an ordinary man, who thinks the Vaisnava in the Acyuta-gotra to belong to a certain caste or creed or who thinks of caranamrta or Ganges water as ordinary water is taken to be a resident of hell." (Padma Purana) Best regards your servant Purujit Dasa
