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.”
"So, when you change, then the authority is lost. Just like in our society, sometimes they do something nonsense and they say, "Prabhupada said." (laughter) They are doing that. We know that. It is deteriorated like that."
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."
We should also note that there was never any talk of a prospective disciple choosing a guru, because the only guru was Srila Prabhupada and as far as choosing which " 'ritvik' -representative of the acarya Srila Prabhupada" to write to, Srila Prabhupada makes it clear that the Temple President is to write to the nearest one, with all the initiation recommendations from his temple.
As an initiated disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and as a member of the International Society for Krishna consciousness, I herewith call to account your past and present preaching activities. Don't think that you are beyond accountability, because of your status as a Swami. Every devotee is accountable before his guru, and in the name of our spiritual master, I herewith demand that accountability from you.
"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.
More evidence? This will blow your mis-matched socks off, Prabhus, so stay tuned! Can you imagine asking a bhakta (now days) to take diksa from an Iskcon guru whom he has never seen? Laughable? Preposterous, you say? This is like asking a person to marry a blind date. After all, your guru is for eternity, so isn't it at least as important as marriage?
Srila Prabhupada and his words are on the transcendental platform therefore his purports to the SRIMAD-BHAGAVATAM is the CURRENT LINK. AS LONG AS WE HAVE PRABHUPADA'S PURPORTS TO THE SRIMAD-BHAGAVATAM HE WILL BE OUR CURRENT LINK BECAUSE **THE REAL** MESSAGE OF SRIMAD-BHAGAVATAM ARE **HIS** PURPORTS.
In the Caitanya-caritamrta the Lord Himself predicts "Prthivite ache yadi nagaradi grama, sarvatra pracara hoibe more nama" (translation: "My holy name will be chanted in every town and village"). Srila Prabhupada fulfilled that prediction by his factual accomplishments.
