How is Vaishnavism not sectarianism? in Spiritual Discussions Posted April 24, 2008 · Report reply Questioning the authority of the Gita is a novel approach to the problem.But if the Gita fails, then appeal to authority fails and no proof is possible. For those who accept no proof is necessary. For those who doubt no proof is adequate. That's the point....it all comes down to an initial faith, and proof comes in a very personal way, that is, generally not demonstrable or demonstrated. BTW, I'm on your team, in the sense of not attempting to diss religion or spirituality, be it Christianity or Vaisnavism, just adding an angle to the discussion.
