Siding with Sahajiyās and not Pure Devotees (10/07/11)
Basically ______Swami sides with ______ who says that the living entity has always been in the material world and that Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura made up the siddhānta that the living entities are from the taṭastha-śakti, marginal plane. They reject Bhaktivinoda as bogus and _____ Swami adjusts the issue by saying that Bhaktivinoda is not bogus, but his preaching apa-siddhānta was just a “preaching strategy.”
However, according to all our previous ācāryas, the jīva comes from the marginal plane before entering the material world. The jīva does not start his existence in the material world or fall from the līlā of Kṛṣṇa in Vaikuṇṭha or Goloka Vṛndāvana (as Śrīla Prabhupāda says in Bhāgavatam while purporting the līlā of Jaya and Vijaya, “The conclusion is that no one falls from Vaikuṇṭha”.
So on this issue _____Swami has sided with the sahajiyās and mundane scholars and not with the pure devotees of Kṛṣṇa. Of course, ____Swami always has an argument for everything because he always thinks himself above others and always in the right position.
Hope this meets you well.
