Connecting Devotees Worldwide - In Service Of Srila Prabhupada

I am not sure how Vaishnava apradha works.
If some Vaishnav devotee is disturbed by some people and they offend the Vaishnava. will these people get the sin of offending Vaishnava?
How will Krishna react?
Will he protect his devotee or let this type of things happen?

Nowadays the most people who are very fallen consider themselves elevated, and not only that, they claim to know who is elevated and who isn't.  Such people usually judge others based on external outlooks, wealth, or juggling words skills.  Anyway, the same activities that would degrade an elevated person, do not cause falldown for those who are already fallen. Indeed, one who is lying on the ground cannot possibly fall further. 

 Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa said to His devotee Uddhava :

''Thus becoming detached upon the loss of his property, that sage gave up his moroseness. He left home, taking sannyāsa, and began to travel about the earth. Even when insulted by foolish rascals he remained unswerved from his duty and chanted this song : 

 "No other force besides his own mental confusion makes the soul experience happiness and distress. His perception of friends, neutral parties and enemies and the whole material life he builds around this perception are simply created out of ignorance. "'
Therefore, those who offend and those who feel offended as well, are both spiritually blind because of ignorance and illusion created by mind. 

 

Very true.
Thanks for the reply :)

Absolutely, for a vaishnava to offend another is a greatest sin and will destroy one's progress spiritually.

How will Krishna react?

Krsna is very very merciful. Gauranga Mahaprabhu is more merciful than krsna. Nityananda prabhu is the MOST merciful among all. So taking shelter of Nitaynanda prabhu will gradually reduce our offending nature towards all living entities. This will revive our spiritual sadhana and allow us to progress.

All glories to guru, gauranga and srila prabhupad!!!

Hare krsna.
