Question:
I am very much attracted to this philosophy, the lifestyle, and have never struggled with the four principles, but I have very little attraction to Prabhupada himself.

Dear Devotees,
Please accept my blessings. Jaya Srila Prabhupada.

I have good news, by Krishna's grace. First, a philosophical introduction, since Krishna's philosophy is so perfect that it explains all situations.

 The following statement was written by Srila Acharyadeva on May 3, 2013.

Krishna explains in Bhagavad-gita 2.59 that upon seeing something better, we naturally give up attachment to a lower experience or pleasure. For example, a normal child naturally outgrows childhood toys. Hopefully, we have all experienced this.

 The following statement was written by Srila Acharyadeva on April 19, 2013.

Here is the logic for stri-gurus [female gurus].

In Vedic culture, and in evidence in general, a direct statement or proof is stronger than an indirect statement or proof. Thus, shruti would be direct statement, and anumana, inference, would be an indirect evidence, perhaps based on and interpreting a direct shastric statement.
