2467) Whether I know we have Vaisnava-sampradaya! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
———— Guru-krsna-krpaya paya bhakti-lata-bija [Cc. Madhya 19.151]. Therefore the process is, as recommended by Srila Rupa Gosvami, adau gurvasrayam. You must select, you must accept the guru who’s coming in parampara system. Evam parampara-praptam imam rajarsayo viduh [Bg. 4.2]. Sampradaya. That is recommended. We have got Vaisnava-sampradaya, four sampradaya: Ramanuja-sampradaya, Madhva-sampradaya, Nimbarka-sampradaya. So intelligent persons should select guru from these sampradayas and follow his instruction. Then the path of devotional service will be very easily opened. This is the way. ———-———–
