Hare Krishna to all Vaishnava Prabhus and matajis
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
These days I see a trend of worshiping personalities like Shirdi Sai Baba is increasing. Previously when I was not in Krishna consciousness I also used to consider Sai Baba as an incarnation,but now I understand Who is God and Who should be worshiped i.e. Krishna. He and His incarnations ,as described in Vedic scriptures and by previous acharyas, should only be worshiped.
But I see people worshiping Sai baba, personalities like Nirmal Baba etc as God. Even my family members are engaged in such activities. I do not understand why such things are happening?
People do not understand that everyone must only surrender to Krishna, rather they think any demigod or effective personalities as God and follow them.They follow their own ways.Such things hurt me. I feel sad to see such pathetic condition of people especially my family members.
So my question is that should people worship non-devotee saints like Sai baba and others as God ? Should they be considered incarnations ?
Should people follow Personalities like Nirmal Baba ?
I do not understand these things.
