Hare Krishna prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
You are indeed doing greatest service to Prabhupada by exposing all nonsense in best possible manner.
Recently I had a great debate with topnotch ritvik from HG Sundar Gopal Prabhu camp , I could not defeat him on the point in the Will document where Prabhupada got changed the words into my initiated disciples from initiated disciple.
If you know Prabhupada said that new commisioner iwill be my initiated disciple. They make it main ground that Prabhupada ordered to Prabhupada only Guru. Ponit is that Prabhupada had desired that his disciples should become guru, but because not body was qualified so he did not appoint anybody guru. They have released a document named IA77 to defeat all arguments of ISKCON.
I will send you that IA 77 document.
Please share your views about my initiated disciple in the will…

Hare Krishna prabhu,
please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I see a double standard here, if we are talking about Srila Prabhupada will, where he says that only “my initiated disciples” can be directors of properties. The author of the text also emphasizes that the written decisions of Srila Prabhupada hold the greatest value.
But then we come into a similar problem, we are talking about rtviks. Due course of time, all appointed rtviks will be dead. But in this case, author claims that it is not a problem because Tamala claims that Srila Prabhupada said: “others can be added”. But this is not written anywhere in the formal decisions.
So, when we need to appoint property directors, then we can’t add anybody except “my initiated disciples”, but when we speak about rtvik priests, then we can add others based on a hear-say conversation with Tamala Krishna.
Additionally, the author expects us to reject all other evidence about parampara, and accept only his version, ignoring all previous statements. And he backs up this idea that Sankara was preaching mayavada, and in the end, he gave the real truth “bhajo Govinda”. Really? Comparing Srila Prabhupada with Sankara? I don’t think that will really work. Srila Prabhupada preached Krishna consciousness directly from the very first day to the last, and it is not possible to compare him with Sankara in this regard.
