Kripa to Kripalu
ASK BVKS | April 18, 2013 |

QUESTION: This is form Vinaya. Hare Kṛṣṇa. Dearest Mahārāja, please accept my humble obeisances. Recently, over the past few weeks I have been preaching online. Many followers of this Kṛpālu Mahārāja - Kṛpālu Mahāprabhu have been claiming that he’s greater than Mahāprabhu Himself. He also claims that he’s the combined form of Śrī Śaṅkarācārya, Śrī Nimbārkācārya, Śrī Rāmānujācārya and Śrī Madhvācārya. Apparently, he has a wife and three children too. I do not know what to do. Please help.
ANSWER BY HH BHAKTI VIKĀSA SWAMI: Well, why are you preaching if you’re not fit to preach? If you can’t… I mean this the kind of thing you are going to get. You should study Prabhupāda’s books thoroughly. So many challenges are going to come. If you can’t face them, then how are you going to preach? Anyway, what are you going to say to followers of this so-called Kṛpālu? Anyone can say anything. I could also say I’m an incarnation of Śaṅkarācārya, Nimbārka, etc. You could also. Hey, do you want to get into God business? You can become Vinaya Mahāprabhu. But what’s the śāstric evidence? What is the evidence in śāstra? If he’s Bhagavan, if he’s Caitanya Mahāprabhu, then he should have a sac-cid-ānanda-vigraha. But he’s old and ugly. So, this is all nonsense. Read Prabhupāda’s books. It’s a nice idea to preach, but if you want to get into public preaching, out on the Internet means public preaching, then you better know your stuff before you get out there. Take some training before you get in the boxing ring.

Q. What is the difference between an incarnation and an expansion of Krishna?

Your servant,
A. Srila Prabhupada has answered your question as follows: "There are two kinds of expansions of the Lord. One kind of expansion is called Visnu-tattva. Visnu-tattva means the expansion, they are as equal as the God Himself. And there are expansions which are called the jiva-tattva, the living entities. This expansion of the living entities, they are not equally powerful, but the expansion of Visnu-tattva is equally powerful, as good as God Himself. So the incarnation of God means the expansion which is as good as God Himself. That is called incarnation." So the incarnation is God Himself, and the expansion may or may not be God.

On 21 October 2017 we were blessed by Lord Krishna with a visit to one of His places of transcendental pastimes in Sri Vrindavan Dhama. We went to Sakara Gully (Sankari Kor), that narrow gully on the foot path between Barsana Town and Citra Village. It was here in the narrow passageway that Krishna would block the path to prevent Radharani and her gopi girlfriends from passing through unless they paid a tax of yogurt. If they would not pay the tax, Krishna would break their clay yogurt pots. While in the gully we stopped for a few minutes and I told the devotees about these wonderful pastimes of Krishna that took place here 5,000 years ago. Or course, these pastimes as still going on here for those who have the eyes to see them. In remembrance of this pastime some local village boys demanded that we pay a tax for passing through the gully and we obliged by tossing them a few coins.

“Sriman Mahaprabhu gave krsna-prema to one and all without discrimination. By chanting the holy name of the Lord, sva-prema-namamrta, He gave this prema. But we are soduracari, so patita, so pamara, we develop no attachment to it.”
