"Therefore we may not commit the same mistake in our ISKCON camp. Actually amongst my Godbrothers no one is qualified to become acarya."
SM: "With this I transfer these beads and from now he will initiate on my behalf as Rtvik. The Rtvik system is already involved both here and also in the foreign land. The Rtvik is the representative."
"ENJOYING THE ASSETS." According to Srila Prabhupada, the Gaudiya Matha's deviants took all of this trouble simply in order to set themselves up with nice big buildings for comfortable living. He would call their efforts, "a free hotel," or "dahl and chappatis sadhus," etc.
This is a reply to Jadurani Dasi. In her recent article in the Sun, The Homonym IKSCON", she has listed a bunch of criticisms made towards her guru, Srila Narayana Maharaja, which she then attempted to counter. This is my reply to some of what she wrote.
"All along I HAVE BEEN DISCOURAGED IN EVERY WAY BY MY GODBROTHERS, but still I have stuck to my duty, keeping my Spiritual Master always in front."
We were all asked by Srila Prabhupada to help Him fulfill His Spiritual Master's wishes to spread the sankirtan movement in the west. The institution is one of the tools He employed The institution is not the same as the movement. As the part is not equal to the whole.
Srila Prabhupada also gave all instructions before departing. Yet he never said "this person will be next acharya" or "these people will be the next diksha gurus".
[Just like the Gaudiya matha] the GBC misheard, misunderstood, and misrepresented to the body of ISKCON devotees that 11 had been “appointed” as acharyas. And they insisted upon it. And they declared some unfit persons to become acharyas.
