Following Instructions of Pseudo Gurus
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
Pseudo gurus characteristically do not consider their disciples’ qualification for the path of attachment. They then instruct unqualified people to take up devotional service in the mood of sakhés and maïjarés. Thus they committed offense by disrespecting confidential subject matters and subsequently fall from the spiritual platform. Those who worship according to such insincere instruction also gradually fall away from spiritual life, because they do not attain genuine deep attachment for those topics. Yet all of these may still be delivered by receiving proper instruction in the association of pure devotees.
