– Is accepting a disciplic succession harmful for the living entity?

– The process of accepting a sampradaya is extremely beneficial for the living entity. If one takes shelter of a sat-sampradaya, one can easily take shelter of the lotus feet of a sadhu, learn religious principles, discuss spiritual topics, and gradually become detached from worldly affairs.

As long as one has a tendency to mingle with persons from unauthorized sampradayas and engage in argument and counter argument for one’s whole life, one can never achieve perfection.

Useless people, occasionally seeing some selfish persons from a bona fide sampradaya indulge in sinful activities, condemn the process of bona fide sampradaya.

The duty of an intelligent person is to try to purify the sampradaya after joining it. When good items are not available in the market and various artificial items are abundant, it is sensible to reform the market; if someone tries to stop the process of selling, you can never praise his intelligence.

The founder-Acharyas of the sampradayas created the system of sampradaya for the benefit of the people of the world. (Sajjana-toshani 4/4)

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."
