GBC body suspends Rupa GoswamiHanuman das
In their attempt to consolidate power and eliminate any opposition, GBC body stranded into very serious problems by directly opposing Srila Prabhupada. They have decided to “approve” gurus and convert them into harmless puppies who are not able to say one word against GBC body’s dubious decisions. My website is full of such dubious decisions.
With more than 70 “fallen” gurus, GBC body continues to act as the one who “knows” who should be guru and who should not be guru. But there is no such thing as a fallen guru, real guru never falls down.
Problem is, when you “approve” gurus, and gurus that you approve turn out to be nonsense, then you also need to “suspend” gurus. Let’s look at the “ISKCON Law book” and how it “suspends gurus”:
So, suspended guru is a pure devotee who is not so pure. Real guru can take you to Goloka, and suspended guru can take you to suspended loka. 😀 😀 😀
By introducing disciplinary actions against gurus who they themselves pronounced pure, they are also directly disobeying Srila Prabhupada and Rupa Goswami:
Everyone should therefore be very careful not to be jealous of an empowered Vaiṣṇava, or a śuddha-vaiṣṇava. It is also an offense to consider an empowered Vaiṣṇava an object of disciplinary action. It is offensive to try to give him advice or to correct him. One can distinguish between a neophyte Vaiṣṇava and an advanced Vaiṣṇava by their activities. The advanced Vaiṣṇava is always situated as the spiritual master, and the neophyte is always considered his disciple. The spiritual master must not be subjected to the advice of a disciple, nor should a spiritual master be obliged to take instructions from those who are not his disciples. This is the sum and substance of Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī’s advice in the sixth verse. (Nectar of Instruction 6, purport)
Do you see a contradiction here? If you do, you are offender. 😀 😀 😀
Since Srila Prabhupada and Rupa Goswami don’t agree with current GBC policies, I think we should suspend them, because anybody who doesn’t accept GBC will be suspended according to ISKCON Law book.
Burden of selecting spiritual master falls to disciple only. Vaisnava sampradayas never had corrupt administrative body deciding who is “pure devotee” and who can be guru. That is just a power grab deviation introduced by the GBC.
We should keep in mind that GBC body manages every ISKCON temple. If some disciple or grand disciple of Srila Prabhupada starts initiating disciples and preaching deviant philosophy, they can politely ask him to preach outside of ISKCON. So, GBC body would still retain control.
But they are not happy with control, they want to convert gurus to harmless puppies who will never be able to speak against deviations of the GBC body, their girlfriends and their luxury apartments. This is in accordance with new GBC paradigma called “unity in stupidity”. Every puppy guru must promise to never preach against GBC body deviations or deviations of fake “guru list” gurus.
Every guru who signs this will become completely harmless puppy and will never be a real guru according to Rupa Goswami.
