What are we actually preaching? (5/15/19)
Dandavats ________ Prabhu,
All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda.
See the attached photo. It is _________’Swami’. He is an initiating guru and this kind of behavior goes unchecked. It is actually seen as progressive. So when Gurudeva does this, just imagine in future what low standards his disciples will have???
Did you know that there are no living disciples of Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta remaining on this planet? For all their faults (and there weren’t many actually), the disciples of Bhaktisiddhānta in Gauḍīya Maṭha managed to train their second generation disciples in the proper philosophy of Bhaktivinoda and Bhaktisiddhānta, as well as in proper behavior (especially for sannyāsīs). I have only ever seen minor deviations in Gauḍīya Maṭha, not many or any major defects.
In ISKCON, we were quick to criticize the hell out of Gauḍīya Maṭha and Prabhupāda’s godbrothers, but as the saying goes, “When you point a finger, three fingers point back”. In other words, ISKCON has become at least thirty times worse than Gauḍīya Maṭha ever was. We criticize them for lack of preaching and pride ourselves as the ‘global preachers,” but in the end, what are we actually preaching in the name of Prabhupāda, Kṛṣṇa and Mahāprabhu?? Nonsense is the answer! And we think that this nonsense preaching will endure the test of time for the next 10,000 years. What fools we have become!
We are proud of our many followers, our zones, our riches, our properties, and big, big temples (TOVP). Truth be told, we are asses among the real Vaiṣṇavas and an embarrassment to Śrīla Prabhupāda.
As Śrīla B.P. Purī Mahārāja has said,” These rāsika (sahajiyā) swamis will not become transcendental gopīs in kṛṣṇa-līlā in their next life. They will be born again in the material world as women!”
Hoping this meets you well.
