Vaishnava

Vaishnava Club is a modern Internet platform dedicated to Vaishnava spiritual philosophy, culture and other issues of human development.

A true Vaishnava is respectful to everyone: respectful to elders and protective of younger ones. A woman, of course, if it is not her own spouse, is treated like a mother. Vaishnavas bow to each other every day, asking for forgiveness for all voluntary or involuntary offenses that they could inflict during the day. The best time of day is early morning, so Vaishnavas try to go to bed early and get up early. In addition, they take great care of their body, remembering that it is nothing but the temple of God.

Vedic culture is material culture in the mode of goodness, which aims to make a person prepared to accept spiritual culture. Vaishnava culture is a purely transcendental culture. She is the crown of Vedic culture. If the Vedic culture is discarded and only Vaishnava culture is left, it will be somehow ridiculous. For example, Vedic culture teaches a person the principles of purity. if we refuse this and say that we are transcendental to worldly purity, then this is just an illusion, because Deity worship (transcendental practice) requires external and internal purity.

The deity is transcendental, but he is placed on a material altar, on which it should be clean. Therefore Vaishnava culture is based on Vedic culture. Srila Prabhupada first gave a purely transcendental message, ignoring the Vedic elements. And what did his first followers look like? They were dirty, overgrown people who were engaged in purely transcendental activities. It looked very strange. But when they were a little purified through chanting, Prabhupada began to introduce the rules of purity and now the Vaishnava culture began to look very harmoniously against the background of the Vedic culture of goodness. Deities on a beautiful and clean altar look great, and if you put them on an inverted bin, it will be offensive and ridiculous. Therefore, the culture of the mode of goodness (Vedic culture) is a good foundation for Vaishnava culture.
