Obstacle of Sectarianism

“The eleventh obstacle of the Vaishnavas is sectarianism, which takes the shape of the forest fire. Due to sectarianism a person cannot accept anyone outside of their own group as a Vaishnava, and as a result they face many obstacles in finding a guru and associating with devotees. Therefore extinguishing the forest fire is most important.“
