Jayadvaita asks on a video, "Why in the hell are people chanting Prabhupada's name and pranams at the samsara prayers ceremony"? Oh I dunno, maybe because he is the acharya?
If you allow a person that has a track record of abusing power to continue occupying the same position you are not being forgiving, you are enabling abuse. You are doing a disservice to child protection, to Bhaktividyapurna Maharaj, and to society at large.
"Therefore we may not commit the same mistake in our ISKCON camp. Actually amongst my Godbrothers no one is qualified to become acarya."
ISKCON and Bhaktivedanta Book Trust International, Inc. (BBTI) are NOT the authentic Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT) founded by Srila Prabhupada for publishing his phenomenal works. Srila Prabhupada’s Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT) is a legal trust and has no connection with ISKCON and the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust International, Inc., (BBTI)...
Some devotees say that even if someone is in some sort of maya, then still whatever they are doing or have done for "Srila Prabhupada" is still counted as bhakti and is valuable . And we should not criticize that "service" because it was done with good intent.
“Regarding parampara system: there is nothing to wonder for big gaps. [...] We have to pick up from the authority of the acharya in whatever sampradaya we belong to.”
Srila Prabhupada says: “A devotee should have intelligence to know who is deviating. Surrender by your intelligence but don’t surrender your intelligence.”
Srila Prabhupada, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura and Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura in their editions of Caitanya-caritamrta accepted this concluding verse as authentic and translated it from the Sanskrit...
The main doubt that many of the senior devotees of ISKCON have is whether or not the Leadership of ISKCON is actually adhering strictly to the mandates and instructions of Srila Prabhupada with regards to the proper management of his Society; or are they instead replacing Srila Prabhupada's management infrastructure with one of their own.

“When someone is initiated they have received transcendental knowledge and their past karma is burned up, they must be a bit like a new born baby. Why is it they still appear and behave the same and even fall down, where has that divine knowledge gone? ”
This is often misunderstood. Formality of initiation: ceremony of name giving and bananas and sesame seeds thrown in fire yajna is not when past Karma is burned off. This is why Srila Prabhupada states this formality “That is not very important thing.”
