Srila Prabhupada: I don’t say, “Follow me.” I say “Follow Krishna.” Krishna says, “Surrender unto Me.” I say “Surrender unto Krishna.” Is there any difference?

Principles and details.
Chaitanya Charan Das: Disagreement over issues is not as disruptive as disagreement over the importance of the disagreements (Based on Gita 18.22)

Usually, coming down from last night’s drugs, everyone would rise sometime afternoon. On that day, as on every day, I awoke with a feeling of separation, a searching for, a longing for…

“It’s All One”—Not! (A Vaishnava Response to Advaita Vedanta)
Satyaraja Dasa: Most systems of Indian philosophy endorse the notion that, in some sense, all living beings are one with God. Some would say that spiritual philosophy in general – East and West – is based on the premise of oneness, suggesting an ontological unity for all that is.
