Defending against impersonalism & mayawadi philosophy

Q. How to defeat this rascal impersonalist theory or impersonalism?  How to make them feel bad about their theories?  How to preach them Krishna consciousness?

1. If we scrutinizingly study Srila Prabhupada’s books which present the Vedic knowledge without any adulteration, we can easily defend against any kind of theories – impersonalism, mayavada etc.

2. Instead of making them feel bad about their theories, we have a choice to present to them higher philosophy through Srila Prabhupada’s books and better examples of human beings through ourselves who strive to live by these books. We may learn to hate the disease and not the diseased. And then, we may also help and uplift the diseased.  That will help them.

3. If people see a genuine change in ourselves, they will automatically be enthused to take to Krishna consciousness.  For this to happen, we have to authentically take to devotional service and follow Srila Prabhupada’s instructions with faith.  This will transform us and through us the people who come in contact with us.  A happy face will be a great preaching tool.
