– What is the difference between Sat-kriya-sara-dipika and the smrti composed by the karmis?

– To protect the constitutional duties of the devotees, Srimad Gopala Bhatta Goswami composed the book Sat-kriya-sara-dipika.

According to Vedic injunctions, Aniruddha Bhatta, Bhima Bhatta, and Srimad Govindananda Bhatta wrote separate smrtis for the karmis.

Sri Narayana Bhatta also wrote a book about the injunctions of the smrtis for the karmis, and Sri Bhavadeva Bhatta wrote a similar book for persons who are fond of Vedic rituals.

The Sat-kriya-sara-dipika was composed from authentic statements of the Vedas, Puranas, and dharma-sastras, headed by the Manu-samhita.

After carefully considering the subject of nama-aparadha, and rejecting the process of worshiping the forefathers and the devatas, Srimad Gopala Bhatta Goswami wrote Sat-kriya-sara-dipika for the benefit of the devotees of Govinda who are either outcastes or situated on the platform of varnasrama.

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."

    Whose opinion on different smritis is this? First I thought it is Bhaktivinoda Thakura’s but after reading it it is not clear. Some question the origin of the book and if Gopala Bhatta, one of the six goswamis is the author of this book. The reason is that the art of presentation is quite different from Hari Bhakti Vilasa.
