Blaming Krishna Consciousness to follow fake Godmen! Solutions!
A Girl devotee (Name hidden) asked like this:
“Hare Krishna Prabhuji. Prabhuji due to your guidance now I am trying to be serious but I have one concern. One of my known wants to get salvation and she says she is Vaishnavi and wears Kanthi mala also. But, she believes in one man who has spread that he is an incarnation of Lord Shiva. I told her that no such incarnation is mentioned in scriptures rather there is no bhakti. There is nothing like chanting Harinaam or anything rather there is worship of that Guru solely. Moreover, when he was about to take samadhi instead of giving instructions on bhakti or how to be sincere is bhakti he was hearing bollywood songs. I told here that he probably have some sidhis but he is not god nor true Guru at all. On this she said me that you are fake and you fake to be Krishna Conscious. He is not like other Gurus and all. You are very negative and all. You will never be happy. You are mentally unstable. I am feeling very bad and all I am thinking is about these things that am not thinking about Krishna at all. Even while sleeping am thinking about this, even in dreams that person is coming and like this my devotional services is not being conducted with single mind. What should I do? pls guide me.”
It is better to avoid arguing with the followers of other gurus, gods and faiths.
Because, it may affect your faith in Krishna Consciousness itself.
Just tell them only once politely and with sufficient points.
If they accept it, it is their fortune. If not, it is their misfortune.
See, there are some people who have the karma of getting cheated by the bogus gurus.
(How should the women escape from the bogus gurus who mock Rasa leela? READ HERE!)
Such persons, if they have the association of the devotees and followers of genuine sathsanghas, they can escape from those bogus guys and get into the genuine sathsanghas.
So, you can just follow your devotional life in such a way that others get attracted to it VOLUNTARILY.
Forcible conversions may not last long. Change of mind should occur naturally getting attracted by something better than their existing path.
Cheating is easier in spirituality than any other paths because spirituality is faith based.
The people are very much interested to see the God and also to get as much material benefits as possible.
So, if anyone gives false promises that he can make them rich overnight just by doing some Pooja because he is god himself, some emotional cum ignorant people get attracted to them and start to follow them.

If the 9th house in their horoscopes remain corrupted, they can easily fall prey into the hands of such fake gurus.
So, it is their karma.
If the 9th house has the aspect of auspicious planets, they can be recovered by giving some advices or thru good association.
If there is no such good aspects, they will get cheated.
This is the actual cause for the sufferings of the people thru these fake gurus.
So, first, you become a serious devotee who follows the vaishnava etiquettes. Then, tell them once.
Or, just gift them a copy of Bhagavad Gita As It Is. Though they do not read it immediately, they will read that atleast on any day when they do not have anything else to read. Just one time reading of even the introduction of Bhagavad Gita As It Is will make them to read the whole book. Then, they will start to evaluate their current stand in devotional practices and stop Blaming Krishna Consciousness.

Do not rush to change them as any reformation is a gradual process. Nothing can happen magically.
Ha Ha. Fake guys are existing only because those who have the karma of getting cheated by such fake guys need them to get cheated.
In Satya Yuga, the karma system had no serious business because all the people followed dharma.
In Treta and Dvapara yugas, the karma department became busy as the violators of dharma increased.
In this Kali yuga, the Karma department is very busy because three fourth of the people are the violators of dharma in Kaliyuga.
So, Since the number of cheaters are more, all of them have to be given the reactions in their next birth.
(Why should we approach Krishna through guru in the middle, not directly? READ HERE!)
So, to give them the reactions, many cheaters are required.
So, Krishna has given FREE WILL to everyone.
Since more and more people are misusing the free will in kaliyuga, they tend to cheat others to add new karma for them.
When they cheat, those who are destined to get cheated in this birth come to them.
For better understanding, the persons of Group “A” have the karma of getting cheated by fake people because they had cheated in their previous births.
The persons of “Group B” tend to misuse their FREE WILL in their current birth to add new karma.
So, Karma system directs the persons of Group A to the persons of Group B.

So, do not force them to change to Krishna and don’t argue with them.
The ignorant followers are clearing their karma by getting cheated;
The fake guys add severe new karma by cheating the innocent people by using their Free will.
Just try once and give them Bhagavad Gita As It Is.
Then, follow your own way of devotional practices as sincerely as possible.
Hope you are clear about dealing someone for blaming Krishna Consciousness to follow a fake godmen.
