Soma Prakāśa u Vaiṣṇava Dharma (The ‘Soma Prakāśa’ and Vaiṣṇavism) was published in Sajjana Toṣaṇī, Vol. 2. Issue 11 in 1885. This essay by Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura is in response to an article by the editor of the Soma Prakāśa newspaper who made derogatory statements against Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Vaiṣṇavism. At the conclusion of his article, Bhaktivinoda explains something about Hinduism and Vaiṣṇavism.
Vaiṣṇave-jāti-buddhi (Conceiving of Caste Distinctions in Vaiṣṇavas) was first published in 1897 in Sajjana Toṣaṇī, Vol 9, Issue 1. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura warns his readers of the dangers of meditating upon the caste or birth of a Vaiṣṇava, explaining how high birth in a Vaiṣṇava family does not guarantee purity, and the low birth of a Vaiṣṇava should not be considered.
