If One Can Hate Rāmakṛṣṇa, Vivekānanda, They Will Achieve Salvation.

Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja: “I’m quite satisfied with Rāmakṛṣṇa. You do not know him properly. So you’re boldly giving assertion like that. What do you know about Rāmakṛṣṇa?” She will tell against you. “Who’s Rāmakṛṣṇa, do you know? He’s both Rāma and both Kṛṣṇa. Rāma and Kṛṣṇa both combined, he’s Rāmakṛṣṇa. What do you know?” They’ll say to you.

From: David
To: Srila Giri Maharaja

Gandhi: No Mahatma

So both the mental and physical habits of the Mleccha and Yavana (non- Vedic races and sects) are impure, that is, closely connected with himsa or animal-killing, etc., and generally their lifestyles are uncontrolled and boisterous in many other ways.

From: Swami B.K. Giri
To: Steve Deace
Date: July 3, 2021
Subject: Difficult to believe.

Mr. Deace,Recently you mentioned something I found difficult to believe. It went something like this: “The Christian God and the God of Islam are not the same.” You may have mentioned others’ God also, such as the God of the “Hindus”*.

I think you misspoke.
