Hearing kirtana from professional singers and illicit association with women

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura

(From "Sampradaya: Asat-Sampradayas" - click to read more from it.

– Do pure Vaishnavas approve of hearing hari-kirtana from the mouths of professional singers?

– Professional singers have neither associated with real sadhus nor properly understood the Vaishnava conclusion. Their words therefore strike the ears of Vaishnavas like thunderbolts. (Sajjana-toshani 6/2)

– Is illicit sexual association with women approved by Sriman Mahaprabhu or Vaishnava religious principles?

– Fearing such faults, our beloved Lord Sri Gaurangadeva rejected Chota Haridasa [a sannyasi who looked lustily on a young woman] from the Vaishnava society. Even after seeing His action, do the hypocrites not become afraid? (Sri Vishnupriya magazine Vol. 1)

All living entities are female by nature; still junior Haridasa was rejected by the Lord for his aparadha of conversing with a woman. Distorting the real meaning of the above phrase that "all living entities are female," cunning people create various methods for gratifying their senses. Saintly persons and Vaishnavas should ignore them. A grihastha associating with his wife is not a limb of devotional service. Such association is accepted only for the sake of maintaining family life. (Sajjana-toshani 5/6)

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
