Who is Right?

In these days of apostates, parallels, spin-offs, and subtle scholarly criticism, the decision whether to be part of ISKCON or to follow another Vaisnava tradition sometimes becomes very perplexing. One of many answers for newcomers is to ask how they heard about Krsna consciousness. If they learned about Hare Krishna through devotees, books, prasadam distribution, harinam, congregational development and sometimes the Internet, it can be pointed out that because Srila Prabhupada formed an institution with extensive outreach, they were able to get the mercy of Krsna.
