Hare Krishna

Yes, you are right prabhuji bhakti is not an alternative to shAstra vidhi...and we should not make any excuses taking the shelter under bhakti, Shraddha and unawareness of injunctions of shAstra...Whatever vidhi prescribed in scriptures should be followed without giving lame excuses.  But mAtru vAtsalya is equal to her educated and un-educated sons /daughters.  If we take the example of Sri Subbu prabhuji mentioned, everyone irrespective of caste, creed and gender would do the Pooja to bhagavati by chanting LS / trishati etc.  in the presence of or with the permission of jagadguru.  If it is dharma bAhira or shAstra viruddha paddhati, how can this be followed in the presence of jagadguru??  The answer to this from the authoritative source would clarify most of our doubts with regard to this issue..is it not??

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!

Does Bhakti involves overruling 'shAstra-maryAda' ?

Is this 'I can do whatever I want' because I have bhakti and Mother is there to take care?
