Hinduism is broken up into sects and sects disagree, sometimes strongly, about religious matters. The following is said to have happened in real life. A speaker, belonging to sect A was a very good speaker. He also knew the Puranas and other narrative material of sect B that he did not believe in. Because he was such a good speaker, laypersons of sect B invited him to speak to them and expound on their sect.
He wrote to a leader of his sect about this, and this leader advised him to take the fees and give the discourse.
Was he being Dharmic to his sect or to the sect that was paying him?
