1084) Whether I know any unapproved show of devotional service is simply disturbance! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————– Narada-Pancaratra. Tatha diksa-vidhanena. This diksa-vidhana, recommended by Sanatana Gosvami, means Pancaratriki-vidhi. Now Rupa Gosvami says in his Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu,

sruti-smrti-puranadi- pancaratriki-vidhim vina
aikantiki harer bhaktir utpatayaiva kalpate [Brs. 1.2.101]
Without undergoing the process of sruti — means Vedas — smrti, the Puranas, and other corollary literatures, Bhagavad-gita, Mahabharata, Smrti, Manu-smrti, the laws given by Manu, Parasara… So Hari-bhakti, devotional service to the Lord, must be approved by Vedas, Puranas. Pancaratriki-vidhi. Otherwise, any show of devotional service is simply disturbance. —————————-—–
