Our  Affectionate Guardians


"Hare Krsna. Please accept my most humble obeisances All glories to sri sri guru and gouranga.This is just a short note as I just finished reading the book: " Our affectionate guardians" . As I read the pages of this book, they resonated with truth to the core of my heart. I shed tears when I read how Srila Sridhara Maharaja was mortified by the dealings of some devotees. I have been indoctrinated with this vaisnava aparadha for almost 20 years and I am very grateful that you have enlightened me and given me the chance to be free of this. It is such a sad story that a pure devotee was mistreated and left this world without it being rectified. Anyway, you know all these things and thank you for your merciful guidance on my sojourn back to godhead."

"I would first of all like to take the dust of His Holiness Vishnu Swami and place it on my head. Then I would like to thank him from the bottom of my heart for compiling such a thorough history of events regarding the preaching mission of Mahaprabhu in the 20th century. It has cleared my heart of many misunderstandings and has given me such joy and appreciation of being a member of the yuga-dharma. I am feeling so optimistic in my future service to Srila Prabhupada."
- Udayananda Prabhu

"I cannot thank B.B. Visnu Maharaja enough for bringing to light previously unknown truths about this greatly misunderstood subject."
- Parivrajaka Swami

I love all these books!! I'm sending these out as gifts to a couple of friends. Also, I do really treasure the new book, "Our Affectionate Guardians." I've read it 4 or 5 times. "Read and cry" What a wonderful book! The Vaishnava community desparately needs to read this important book. I hope that in time, devotees everywhere will take the time to read this. Thanks for making it available. I'm sure that someone will be writing a similar book someday in regards to the horrific treatment and villification of Srila Narayana Maharaja by the ISKCON camp. As you pointed out, one of the reactions to Vaishnava aparadha is that the offender will be bound to commit even further aparadhas. And, we see this happening even now.

"Visnu Maharaja gives a historical perspective which is painful yet pertinent reading. It brings to life in startling frankness both the greatest pitfall on the path of devotion, Vaisnava aparadha, and the affectionate heart of a param Vaisnava, Srila Sridhara Maharaja. A humbling and edifying experience to read, it settles what is arguably the greatest controversy in contemporary Gaudiya Vaisnavism. Read and cry."
- Swami B. V. Tripurari

"For all who have been confused about the Sridhara Maharaja controversy, here's the conclusive story. It's hard to argue with the truth."
