Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha (Visva-Vaisnava Raja-sabha)

– When and where was the Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha first established? What is the goal of this sabha?

– The Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha was established in Calcutta in 399 Sri Caitanya Era in April. The goal of the society is to improve the Vaishnava religion in various ways. The goal and rules of this society were written in a Vishva-Vaishnava brochure. Under the guidance of this sabha, various pictures of the pastimes of the Lord have been painted. A Vaishnava trust has also been established. Because of a lack of funds, we have yet to establish an assembly hall, a temple of Lord Caitanya, and a printing press, but we have no doubt that soon Mahaprabhu will arrange for all these. (Sajjana-toshani 2/1)

– When were the Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha and the Vaishnava-sabha merged?

– A centre for the Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha has been constructed in Sarkar Lane, Kansaripara, and Calcutta. A huge conference for this sabha was held on the last Saturday in July, and the resolutions of the sabha were published in the daily newspaper after a few days. Under the care of the General Secretary, Sri Lal Mohan Dutta, the activities of the sabha went on smoothly. It was written that the Bharatvarsiya Hari Sadhana Samaj and the Vaishnava-sabha have merged with the Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha.

But as far as we know, the Vaishnava-sabha has not merged completely. Although the Vaishnava-sabha is very eager to benefit the sabha, it will not merge fully with the Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha unless it approves of the activities of that sabha for some time.

Moreover the Vaishnava-sabha has been established for one year and it will continue to maintain its separate identity until the Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha is established. Because the goal and activities of both sabhas are the same, the Vishva-Vaishnava Raja-sabha will soon merge with its parent sabha, the Vaishnava-sabha. (Sajjana-toshani 2/3)

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."
