With great excitement, we announce that H.D. Goswami’s official Vyasa-puja date will be on November 1st, 2019 (not to be confused with the celebration on September 13-15th in San Diego, CA). This year will be extra special, since we will also be celebrating his 50th anniversary of joining ISKCON. Thus, we are collecting written offerings from godfamily, disciples, and well-wishers.

Gurus Are Human Beings Too

I find myself struggling with the idea of devotion to the guru. If one disagrees with the guru, how is that reconciled with the belief in the guru as a conduit for God? Also, in light of the many scandals regarding gurus, how can one know for sure that a guru is a holy man?

The guru is a conduit to God, in that the Guru faithfully explains what Krishna Himself and the great Acaryas taught. The guru is not necessarily expert, and is certainly not all-knowing, in material fields of knowledge.
