            Hare Krsna 

            All that is fantastic. I am sure there is a plethora of websites other than this one to discuss all those. Just in case there isn't feel free to start your own. All we are requesting is to refrain mentioning about persons who are not coming the four bonafide vaishnava sampradaya. Please understand all others they may be very great, but not here. Humble request. 

            Hare Krsna

                But they had similar motives, did they not?

                Pure devotional service to the supreme personality of Godhead is the ultimate culmination of Sanatana Dharma as state in Srimad Bhagavatam. Srila prabhupada and and Vaishnava acaryas coming in the bonafide vaishnava sampradayas teach us this. The ultimate purpose of all vaishnava acaryas like Ramanujacarya, Madhwacarya, Sri Chaitanya mahaprabhu, and Srila Prabhupada is to encourage conditioned living entities to practice pure devotional service or bhakti and return to our eternal position of being servant of Sri Krishna in the spiritual world. 

                I have no interest in knowing motives of other people. 

                Is there a specific reason why Vivekananda would be classed as a non-devotee ?

                The reason is that he was not a devotee. He is a mayavadi who equates living entities to supreme lord. This is greatest offence to Sri Krsna. 

                Hare Krsna

  • Hare Krsna
    The soul is eternal.
    "Mamaivamso jive loke sanatanah "
    If the soul were to undergo changes then the soul won't be sanatana or eternal.
    • Hare Krsna
      Yes, consciousness is a symptom of the soul.
      The soul is present in the elephant and the bacteria but consciousness spread across the body is different.
      • If we can change our consciousness, from material one to Krishna consciousness, or reverse, then our soul can be changed by such peoples theory that soul and consciousness are the  same.

        Such philosophy should be rejected, because soul is unchangeable :

        • Is lord Krishna's and our soul same in size,but Krishna's soul more powerful and with more qualities?

          • E-Counselor

            Krishna's soul and body are non different from each other, unlike ours.

            Secondly, Krsna is whole, unlimited ocean, whereas we are part and parcel of the whole - He is the entire ocean and we are one drop of the ocean. 

            That is the difference.

            •  Just add that parts and parcels from unlimited, are always unlimited, and the comment is perfect. 

              .

              SB 7.7.19-20 — “Ātmā” refers to the Supreme Lord or the living entities. Both of them are spiritual, free from birth and death, free from deterioration and free from material contamination. They are individual, they are the knowers of the external body, and they are the foundation or shelter of everything. They are free from material change, they are self-illuminated, they are the cause of all causes, and they are all-pervading. They have nothing to do with the material body, and therefore they are always uncovered. With these transcendental qualities, one who is actually learned must give up the illusory conception of life, in which one thinks, “I am this material body, and everything in relationship with this body is mine.”

    • If soul is consciousness and if consciousness increase does it mean soul is getting bigger

      • Soul is not consciousness, because consciousness is state of awareness of the soul .
