I felt that, after teaching the course, the devotees were much moreconnected with SrilaPrabhupada and, because of that deeper understanding,protected from the influence of non-ISKCON Vaishnava missionaries. One of the best outcomes of the course was that students came to understand the plurality of gurus in ISKCON to be an enormous strength. This foundational course has provided an opportunity for our devotees in Toronto to understand basic principles like our collective relationship with SrilaPrabhupada, the mood of a qualified disciple and pitfalls to avoid as one grows on their spiritual path. We are extremely thankful to the GBC for instituting this course as a fundamental teaching tool for our growing international Hare Krishna family. Conflicts we had in our community were solved by this course. The course gives a very deep understanding on who is SrilaPrabhupada and what it actually means that SrilaPrabhupa is the Founder-Acarya of our movement. The course helped devotees to better understand how to cooperate, having different authorities. I think long term this course can very much help to keep our society together.
