– What is the difference between the guru who gives initiation mantra and the guru who gives Harinama (Holy Name)?

– The nama-guru, the spiritual master who gives Harinama, teaches his disciples about the supremacy of the Holy Names and gives mantras, consisting of the Holy Names.

The diksa-guru is non-different from the nama-guru because the mantras are non-different from the Holy Names. If mantras are separated from the Holy Names, they are no longer mantras. By simply uttering the Holy Names, one automatically utters the mantras. (Harinama-cintamani)

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."
