– For what purpose was the process of begging alms introduced? What is the present condition of this process?

– Begging alms was first introduced for the benefit of pure Vaishnavas. But how it has become a business. The hypocrite Vaishnavas and Vaishnavis, deciding not to earn their food by any work in the world, have taken to begging alms. (Sajjana-toshani 6/3)

– How did the process of begging alms become spoiled?

– Seeing that the Vaishnavas did not agree to accept alms, useless men and women took advantage of the profession of begging alms. (Sajjana-toshani 6/3)

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."
