Concerning Initiation

Written by VF member Puëòarék

On May 28,1977, in respect to diksha initiations after his disappearance (less than six months later on November 14th), Srila Prabhupada stated: “When I order, ‘You become guru,’ he becomes regular guru. That’s all. He becomes disciple of my disciple. That’s it.” Upon the command of Prabhupada, one of his initiated disciples becomes a “regular,” i.e., under rules and regulations, a madhyam diksha-guru, and those he initiates become the initiated disciples of Prabhupada’s authorized diksha-guru disciple.

They become a “grand disciple” of Prabhupada. ibid, “He is grand-disciple.”Any such authorized guru in the Madhva-Gauòéya sampradya will not consider himself a guru on any level above a madhyam, at least until he has proven himself fully obedient to the rules and regulations incumbent upon him, particularly in accord with the guru-vani which preceded him, as recorded in that May room conversation.

If the Shoe Fits

Lord_Nrshimadeva

Let us deconstruct a disastrous article, entitled “God-given Rejection of Nonsense.” We shall cull out quotes from this screed, Hanuman’s recent broadside, and then we shall comment upon them. We deconstruct it in order for you to utilize your free will in the right way and reject the apa-siddhanta, misrepresentations, and offenses it is pushing and projecting. Thus, his title for the article is made applicable. Who is pushing nonsense? A rhetorical question, obviously.

Descent Into G.B.C. Dystopia

June, 2019

(Make Your Ever-lovin’ Brother Happy.)

First of a Four-Part Series

by Kailäsa Candra däsa

“ . . . we have created these G.B.C. So, they should be very responsible men. Otherwise, they will be punished. They will be punished to become a çüdra. Although Yamaräja is a G.B.C., but he made a little mistake. He was punished to become a çüdra. So, those who are G.B.C.s, they should be very, very careful to administer the business of ISKCON. Otherwise, they will be punished. As the post is very great, similarly, the punishment is also very great.”
Platform Lecture, 6-4-74 in Geneva

“Then collect the opinions of each and every G.B.C. member, and, if the majority supports the idea, then it should be taken as a fact for being carried out in our society. The majority vote and my opinion should be taken. When the majority opinion is present, my opinion will be yes or no. In most cases, it will be yes unless it is grievously against our principles.”
Letter to Bhagavän, 8-20-71

The “ISKCON” Paradox

July, 2018

First of a Two-Part Series

by Kailäsa Candra däsa

“. . . it is admitted that all the statements in the Bible are not directly spoken by Jesus. Some of them are staged through the mouth of Jesus Christ . . . there are many passages in the Gospel which are later on set up to be spoken by Lord Jesus Christ, but actually they were manufactured by different devotees.”
Letter to Satsvarüpa, 10-31-69

“Knowledge revealed therein (Vedas, Mahäbhärata, Rämayäëa, Småti çästras) may appear in the beginning to be unbelievable. This is due to our nonsensical paradox that we want to verify everything by accommodating in our tiny brain.”
Caitanya-caritämåta, Ädi-Lélä, Summary Study of Chapter Five, 1967
