– By studying which literature can one achieve auspiciousness?

– One should study all the Vedas, Smrtis, Puranas, Pancaratras, and conclusive writings of the mahajanas wherein the topics of pure devotional service are instructed and discussed. By studying literature containing other opinions, one simply learns useless arguments. (Sajjana-toshani 11/6)

– Which Sastra reveals the true meaning of the Vedas?

– The Puranas reveal the true meaning of the Vedas. The Vaishnava community believes that the Absolute Truth, which is ascertained in Vedic literature like the Upanisads, is explained in the Puranas in simple language by personalities like Parasara Muni and Vedavyasa. (Tattva-sutra 2)

The meanings of the Vedic statements are extremely confidential. To help the people of the world understand the purport of the Vedic statements, the great sages have put those purports in the Puranas. (Caitanya-caritamrta Madhya 6/143 to 148)

– If everyone has a right to study the Puranas, are they not inferior to the Vedas?

– Just as everyone has a right to chant the Holy Names of Krsna, the essence of all Vedic literature, everyone has a right to study the Puranas and Itihasas, which are as good as the Vedas. The same Vyasadeva who divided the Vedas compiled the Puranas and Itihasas; therefore, the glories of the Puranas and Itihasas are equal to the Vedas. (Sajjana-toshani 11/10)

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."
