Suppose Bir Krishna Dasa Goswami, the current chairman of the GBC Executive
Committee, wrote his own version of Bhagavad Gita, with his own original
translations and purports, and put the above disciplic succession at the
end of his introduction, copyrighted it in his own name, and ordered
his "disciples" to distribute it to the exclusion of his spiritual masters
books! Sound outrageous?
But isn't this exactly what Srila Prabhupada did? Why was Srila Prabhupada
allowed to do this, and not BKG? Why wouldn't a real, bona fide diksa guru
be allowed to do this? The ISKCON "gurus" are obviously trying to imitate
Srila Prabhupada, so where does one draw the line?
Bir Krishna Dasa Goswami has already published some of his own books, tapes,
and CDs, and copyrighted them in his own name. These items are being
distributed by his "disciples", and other followers, on the streets of
Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to the exclusion of Srila Prabhupada's books,
tapes, and CDs! The money collected from the sale of these items is put into
a bank account which he has complete control over. Should this be permitted
to go on? Didn't Srila Prabhupada order that all ISKCON temples distribute
his books exclusively? Didn't Srila Prabhupada order that the BBT publish his
If Srila Prabhupada were to suddenly reappear in his vapu form, would he then
be required to follow all of the rules which the GBC has passed governing and
restricting "diksa gurus" within ISKCON? What exactly is the difference
between ISKCON's new "gurus", and Srila Prabhupada? As far as I know, the GBC
has never made this very clear.
Why are "grand disciples" not allowed to be "gurus" within ISKCON, even if
their "guru" has left his body? Are "grand disciples" whose "gurus" have
fallen ever going to be allowed to be "diksa gurus" within ISKCON?
If a disciple has spiritual difficulty after his guru leaves his body,
should that disciple take re-initiation, so that he again would have a
I would like to know what any and all interested persons, and especially
the members of the GBC body have to say about these perplexing topics!
