Why we should never leave ISKCON? – Navina Nirada Prabhu. Life in material world is boring. We try to enjoy this world but have realised thro the knowledge that I am eternal. I am full of knowledge and bliss. Sooner or latter we all have to surrender to Krishna. Why wait till be land up in tragedy. Let us surrender voluntarily. We have been blessed by the mercy of Srila Prabhupada – is the form of ISKCON, books, prasadam and association of his devotees. By staying in ISKCON we are showing gratitude for ISKCON. We are a family and we should stay together. There are faults and mistakes, There are odd people, idiosyncrasies and difficult people. But as we tolerate in our family, same way. Either we become more inspired by them or learn to become tolerant. Maya will give us unlimited excuses and reasons. But eventually everyone comes back., There are societies based on charisma. Once that person is gone, everything crashes. Srila Prabhupada made the GBC and followed the GBC. We all are servants. Nobody is above law. If we hop around like a monkey we will be shot down by arrow of maya. IF some one leaves ISKCON, half is our fault. Due to managerial difficulty or interpersonal difficulty, the person leaves and goes back to maya or other religious group. We have to make our society more authentic and sweet so that people would not want to leave.
