Ofcourse while on book distribution our approach may be different but in our lectures to devotees and non devotees we should make it very clear that we are followers of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu who said “mayavadi Krishna aparadhi” and “mayavadi bhasya sunile haya sarvanas”. And if we do not clearly discriminate between Krishna Consciousness and mayavadi philosophy then gradually and surely, the poison of mayavad will menifest in many devotees lives.

Respected Keshava Krishna Prabhu,
Your points in this article seems to be contradictory. At one time you say that we should not be heavy, strong and at other place you say that we should sincerely preach from the bonafide sastras. But sastras like Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam etc. give very strong and heavy message. They are meant to completely uproot our deep material desires. That’s why they are like sastra-weapon. So shall we preach from the sastras following in the footsteps of Srila Prabhupada, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur, and other acaryas or should we preach like the mayavadis, very soft, smiling, using the words like peace, compassion, love and all these words are very shallow because they are defined not in connection with Krishna. We see that none of our previous acaryas preached very lightly. All of them were like lions and they smashed all the misconceptions from the hearts of the conditioned souls like us.
And that is why we are here today practicing Krishna consciousness. And we should follow them or follow mayavadis. It is intersting to note that mayavadis never criticize anyone, because according to them everything is nice, ok. But Srila Prabhupada criticized everything which lacked surrender to Krishna and said that we are ok and you are not ok because we are following vedic sastras as it is and you are not. Ofcourse we welcome everyone to come and join Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s sankirtana movement on our terms and conditions. We want not only this earthly planet but the whole universe to merge in the sankirtana movement of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
And one more point came up that we should not hate anyone. That is correct as Krishna states in Bhagavad Gita “Advaishta sarva bhutanam”. We love all the living entities because Krishna loves them. But those living entities which are in the bodies of mayavadis like sai baba, Rama Krishna, Sri Sri ravi shankar, pramukh svami, etc (many are there), they are also part and parcel of Krishna but at the present moment they are the worst enemies of Krishna like Ravana, Kamsa, Hiranyakasipu, so as aspiring devotees of Krishna following in the footsteps of Hanuman we should hate these rascals and teach others that these people are rascals and defeat them. Because if we don’t call these people rascals and make friends with them then others including our own devotees can not differentiate between real and illusiory, sat and asat between Krishna and mayavad.

Jay Srila Prabhupada.
Very inspiring article and preaching by Srila Indradyumna Swami Maharaja. We see that in this and many previous reports by Maharaja, he is often praised by people for his lecture where he presents Krishna consciousness in a straight forward manner like Srila Prabhupada. And mostly people come to him to get a signature on Bhagavad Gita As It Is or to congratulate him for his wonderful lecture.
In comment 3 Kesava Krsna Prabhu wrote “This is more beneficial than becoming almost ‚Äôsmarta-like‚Äô with narrow and rigid interpretations of Srila Prabhupada‚Äôs teachings.” Kesava Krsna Prabhu, could you please substantiate this statement with some examples.
All glories to the Sankirtana soldiers like Indradyumna Swami Maharaja!

All glories to the sankirtana devotees!
Yes this is a good example that we can present Krishna consciousness in straight forward way. And this is Srila Prabhupada’s preaching style for all times, all places and all circumstances.
And we are often afraid that people will get upset if we preach like this but often people like our straight forward style of preaching.
I am also eagerly waiting to read this new book ‚ÄúOn Speaking Strongly in Srila Prabhupada‚Äôs Service‚ÄĚ by Sri Bhakti Vikasa Swami and also to distribute this book widely.
