Here in the process of Krishna consciousness everyone has the opportunity to chant The Maha-Mantra Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare (the H is read as J for jota), and be happy in Krishna consciousness, here there is neither discrimination nor exploitation, everyone has the opportunity to lead a pure and sinless life, for that you have to follow the 4 regulative principles, 1, do not eat meat , fish or eggs, 2, no illicit sex, only sex for procreation and with one’s wife is allowed, 3, no gambling, and 4, no tea, coffee, alcohol, drugs, etc., all have the opportunity to be initiated by a disciple of Srila Prabhupada who initiates in the name of Srila Prabhupada, here there is no place for opportunists or for climbing positions, here we are all friends and humble servants of each other, we are all friends and spiritual brothers and sisters , and the one with the greatest capacity to serve, we accept as leaders.
Of course we follow the spiritual etiquette that the senior devotee with more experience gives his mercy to the junior devotee, and the junior devotee is thankful and respectful to the senior devotee, everyone has the opportunity to follow all the instructions given in Srila Prabhupada’s books, and helping each other do the same, by doing this we live with Srila Prabhupada and acquire his qualities.
Our love and service is for Srila Prabhupada, and we have full faith that Srila Prabhupada is the authorized person who is going to take us back home, back to Krishna.
Here we are not interested in the opinions of an ordinary person, ordinary people have four types of defects, the first defect is that they tend to make mistakes, another defect is being in illusion, the third defect is the propensity to deceive and finally our senses they are imperfect. Any opinion other than revealed truth is worthless. Revealed truth means truth, or scripture that comes from a reliable source, the chain of disciplic succession formed by bona fide spiritual masters is the reliable source; since these people are self-realized and pure souls, and they are free from the four defects mentioned above. Here nobody speculates, we understand and accept that a person is speculating, when he does things in a capricious way without relying on the Guru, Sadhu and Sastra.
Here only the original books of Srila Prabhupada are used, we are totally against all the changes that have been made to the original books of Srila Prabhupada. Here we have full faith that Srila Prabhupada is the way, the truth and the life, and if someone goes back home back to Godhead or Krishna, it is by Srila Prabhupada’s mercy.
