A Living Theology of Krishna Bhakti

Graham M. Schweig

This chapter identifies the main forces that influenced Prabhupada's thought and also shows how his parents, college education, discipleship, and upbringing influenced his work. It describes the earlier teachers of Vaishnava in Bengal, looks at Prabhupada's efforts as an authoritative commentator, and identifies what impressed Prabhupada most about his guru, Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī. This chapter ends with an analysis that combines the roles of the disciplic succession, the founder-ācārya, and ISKCON in Prabhupada's theological formulation.

Keywords:   Vaishnava teachers, disciplic succession, founder-ācārya, theological formulation
