If we think in this way, there will be quarrels among us

“Understanding that the servant of the guru should be deeply respected, Raghunatha dasa Gosvami always saw Sanatana Gosvami and Rupa Gosvami as his gurus. We should also have this behavior amongst ourselves, for that will create love between us.

We may think, “I am guru. He knows nothing. He is not as good a servant of our Gurudeva as I am. He doesn’t even know any siddhanta.” If we think in this way, there will be quarrels among us, and now this is going on: “I am the only acarya and no one else is qualified.” Where there is hating and similar mentalities, that place is kali-rajya, the kingdom of Kali.”

Devotee: How to avoid politics amongst devotees?

Srila Bhakti Vaibhava Puri Maharaja: “People cannot remain without politics. They will not do harinama, but in the name of harinama they will do politics. They will not repeat Nama.

They will not believe that Krishna is the only Personality Who can save us from all the calamities. They don’t believe it. They think that their will power, their own capacities, their qualifications or their tactics can save them. That’s why you find politics in the Institutions.

Wherever you will go you will find politics. This is kali. Kali means fighting. This is the age of wrangling. Everybody wants to fight….”
