– What is the necessity of a perpetual disciplic succession?

– No book is without errors. God’s revelation is Absolute Truth, but it is rarely received and preserved in its original purity. Truth that has been revealed is absolute, but over the course of time, it becomes tainted by the nature of the receivers, and from age to age, it is transformed by the continual change of hands. New revelations, therefore, are continuously necessary to keep Truth in its original purity. (Sri Manah-siksa Verse 2)

– Is the process of authorized sampradaya eternal or modern?

– The system of sampradaya is extremely necessary. Therefore the system of authorized sampradaya has been coming down from time immemorial among saintly persons. (Jaiva Dharma Chapter 13)

– What is the disciplic succession of the servants of Sri Caitanya?

– Sri Brahma-sampradaya is the disciplic succession of the servants of Sri Caitanya. Sri Kavikarnapura Goswami has written the gradual order of this disciplic succession in his book, Gaura-ganoddesa dipika. Sri Baladeva Vidyabhusana, who wrote a commentary on Vedanta-sutra, also accepted this disciplic succession. Those who do not accept this line of disciplic succession are the main enemies of the servants of Sri Krsna Caitanya. (Sri Manah-siksa Chapter 2)

– Only those who have received pure spiritual knowledge of the Vedas coming from Brahma through disciplic succession accept the path of pure religious principles. Others become servants of atheistic philosophy due to differences of opinion. (Sri Manah-siksa Chapter 2)

– Who are Kali’s spies (Kali-cela)?

– Those who accept the disciplic succession of Sri Krsna Caitanya but secretly do not follow the rules and regulations laid down by the disciplic succession are the spies of Kali. (Sri Manah-siksa Chapter 2)

– In the future, which authorized sampradaya will exist?

– Within a short time, there will be only one sampradaya left and that is the Sri Brahma-sampradaya. All other sampradayas will be merged into it. (Sri Manah-siksa Chapter 2)

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."
