(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 1 June 2020, Radhadesh, Belgium, Caitanya Caritamrta Lecture)

I do not usually cover the topic of disrespecting vaishnavas, as in one sense, it is a distasteful topic. I do not like to discuss all the unpleasantness of vaishnava-apradha as it is not filling our hearts with great happiness. To make vaishnava-apradha the focus of spiritual life is also not what it is about. Our lives must be dedicated to devotional service. Let us just think day and night about expanding our devotional service and about expanding the mercy of Lord Caitanya in all directions. Then in this course, we avoid vaishnava-apradha. But if one is merely spending their life avoiding vaishnava-apradha, that alone is not enough. Let us do something to increase the glories of the Lord and the glories of His devotees. And in this way, we increase the glories of the sankirtana movement.
