I believe that as an ex student I may have a better understanding.
This is true, but it is for you.
I have read about the mythology of Krishna, but I don’t look too much into it. What people believe is entirely free and up to the person it is no business of mine.
The system presented by the groups is man made, apparently given by divine intervention, it is understood that people went with it because it was the best as far as their belief system was concerned, and trust in the deity.
The part that is manmade is the systems presented, the ones that absolutely failed (and still fail) adults and children.
Separation of parent from child is not easy feat with healthy bonding attachments.
Anyone who wants to separate child from parent or caregiver is someone to run from in my book :D Run fast.
Religion is often handed through generation to generation you are correct, though some social scientists recognise that today is becoming more secular, religion is not being passed down as much or even with much fervour (in the west at least).
A system permitted only to have male to female intercourse for the purpose of making a wave of children that would adhere to the groups alone, it is creepy. It comes to me like a misuse of humanity, but this should never be mixed with Krishna alone.
Do I have problem with beliefs in any deities?.. no, I myself still have the shiva screensaver. There are groups around in more than one country that believe that the all of the deities are planted disempowering symbols that are actually alien weaponry (heeehee, what?) I can assure this is not my stance either.
Groups who try to turn people from their own healthy beliefs in their culture get no green lights from me. It is disgusting to witness.
The manmade groupings aka cults are the source of disillusionment and pain for many. That is the point.
Thank you for taking the time to post some Krishna history, it is lovely to read Im sure others will find so too.
