Q: Christmas: the Western world is celebrating the appearance of Jesus Christ. We know that Srila Prabhupada mad several statements about Jesus while he was preaching. Also in his purport to Srimad Bhagavatam (4.6.47): “A Vaiṣṇava should follow the examples of such Vaiṣṇavas as Haridāsa Ṭhākura, Nityānanda Prabhu and also Lord Jesus Christ.” — Tolerating personal insults. Before that he gives the 3rd verse of Siksastakam. Can you, please, expand on Prabhupada’s statement. Are there any comments of Sila Gurudev or Srila Guru Maharaj?
Loving glance of the Vaishnavas towards Christianity. — Controversial service for the confidential servitor: Shiva, Judas. — Swami Prabhupada talks on Christianity. — Sridhar Maharaj asks, if Jesus can come to Vaishnavism. — Everyone saw Krishna in a different way at Kamsa’s arena. — Gopis never not see Krishna. In separation their seeing becomes intensified. — Lakshmi and Vishnu, Dwaraka Krishna are astonished by the beauty of Vrindavan Krishna. — Christianity is a partial representation of loving relations, the full range is expressed in Krishna conception. — Oldest of all — ever youthful. — Christianity: ore and reverential devotion. — Gradation of religions: rasa, loving intimacy, as a standard. — Public and private lives of God. — The case of Ma Yashoda. — When a devotee in a superior position, Krishna is happy. — Tolerance, humility, giving honor to others — that mood can be appreciated by the Christians. — Separation is a “hunger” stage before meeting. — Mad search for Krishna that yields substance. — She who controls Krishna.
