Dear Madhudvisa Prabhu,
I appriciate your attempts to do something to improve the situation. Similar despair was felt by Prabhupada after the departure of Bhaktisiddhanta Maharaja and he wrote a poem, where he expressed his frustration and anger. While reading this poem I was very much amazed that exactly same thing happened again, after his own departure.
Prabhuji, right now I am unable to help you and do something practical. Practical programs can be effective only when it is performed by the one who has Krishna, or who can give Krishna. Right now I can only suggest a mean, or means how to get Krishna. This kind of preaching is not so effective and not enough to establish a society. So, we have to follow your advice to read Prabhupada’s books and chant Hare Krishna. And one day Prabhupda will make a pure devotees out of us. Then we will be able to implement all kinds of practical programs under Krishna’s guidance.
As far as ISKCON is concerned there is no need to rely on and have a hope in it.

I appriciate your devotion to Prabhupada. But I humbly request you to delete the word “few” in your reply to Vijay Sakha with regard to books left by previous acharyas.
As far as the language of books written by previous acaryas is concerned for millions of people in the world the English is as foreign as sanskrit for English speaking people. As far as the style of books left by previous acaryas is concerned this style will be foreign to us until we will be trained up to certain level by Prabhupada through his books.
In this regard the following can be cited:
prabhu lokanatha kabe sange lana jabe
sri-rupera pada-padme more samarpibe
“When will my master, Lokanatha Gosvami, place me at the lotus feet of Srila Rupa Gosvami?” Srila Narottama dasa Thakura, Prarthana 17
“Actually going to Vrndavana involves taking shelter of the six Gosvamis by reading Bhakti-rasamrta-sindhu, Vidagdha-madhava, Lalita-madhava and the other books that they have given. In this way one can understand the transcendental loving affairs between Radha and Krsna.” CC. Adi lila, Chapter 8, text 31, Purport
“Only if I (Narottama das Thakura) become attached to the instructions given by the six Gosvamis, headed by Rupa Gosvami and Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, will it be possible for me to understand the conjugal love of Radha and Krsna.” CC. Adi lila, Chapter 7, text 17, Purport
So it is better to delete the sentense alltogether as it doesn’t suit your intellectually and spiritually advanced position.
At last I beg you to delete the word “blind” addressed to Vijay Sakha, for he did not say anything against Prabhupada and his books.
Your humble servant,

If Prabhupada did not made well qualified devotee within the term of his physical lifetime, it doesn’t mean that he was at fault, for he still continue to teach and train his followers. In other words he has not yet finished his job and therefore any judgement or conclusion made in this regard will be false. For example, someone may cook in the kitchen but has not finished cooking. We may enter the kitchen and see that there is no food to eat and conclude that the cook is unable to cook, or think that the food must be ready by now and eat the uncooked food, or vegetable skin. In this case we will become sick as followers of ISKCON who took kanishtha adhikaris (uncooked food), or materialists and mayavadis (eggplant and poteto skin) as pure devotees and ruined their spiritual life (stomack).

It is not proper to think that Prabhupada was supposed to make pure devotees within the term of his physical presence, otherwise he would be at fault. If he could not make a pure devotee within 12 years, there is nothing wrong with it, for he continue to teach and train his followers through his books. At the time of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati’s departure he said to his followers that you are not yet qualified to become an acarya. But it doesn’t mean that Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati was at fault. It doesn’t depend on him alone, it depend on disciple and ultimately on Krishna as the supreme cause of all causes. In other words he has not finished yet his job. And there is no doubt that one day he will train up some fortunate one to the level of pure devotion. We have to try our best to be the one.
Your humble servant,

“Acceptance of 11 devotees as gurus was mistake”.
“This mistake was addressed and deluted to some extent by adding more gurus”.
These two statements sounds contradictory, or at least it does not make sense to me. Can anyone help me?

Dear Gaurahari, your post is just to the point and brilliant.
But I just would like to humbly ask you not underestimate
the madhyama position. In other words, if you would name
one madhyama guru in ISCKON, I would be most happy to
surrender unto his lotus feet.

Dear Gurukripa Prabhu,
Please accept my most humble obeisances unto your lotus feet!
Please bless me with the particle of your divine service done
for the sake of Srila Prabhupada and Krishna.
Unfortunately I have never heard about you before. How could
I heard about you, from whom could I hear about you?
I congratulate you for being a succesful follower of His Divine
Grace. What can be most fortunate and higher than this?
Thank you for everything.
Your humble servant,
Ahinsra das (former disciple of Harikesh)

All glories to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada!
Prabhuji, I am very sorry, I just want to clear the matter.
In the beginning of SB the sages address as follows saying: Dear Suta Goswami, you have studied the scriptures elaborately and have heard from your authorities. But please speak to us about the highest truth as far and as much as you have realised it.
I can understand that it is not required for a person who wants to become Krishna conscious to be perfect. But as far as the delivering of the Krishna consciousness is concerned I cannot understand that without realization of what you are saying how your words will penetrate the heart of a person and change his consciousness.
Prabhuji, I know that Srila Prabhupada have said very nice things about you. I heard that he said that Madhudvisa will go back to Krishna in this life. And I have seen you in Mayapura and listen you speaking about His Divine Grace in 1994. I respect you very much. Please forgive me for my offences. It is not befitting to me to say that but I have to say that you are in a best shape among the disciples of His Divine Grace.

Dear Madhudvisa Prabhu,
Please accept me as your servant in the service to Srila Prabhupada.
Thank you for making continuous efforts in very many ways to serve and satisfy His Divine Grace.
The point you made in your article is very important, specially after the physical departure of His Divine Grace. I completaly and totally accept
and agree with the points stressed in the article.
But still I would like to clear one point regarding the preaching. In your article it is stated that the preacher should simply convey the words he has heard from his guru. And it was stated that the preacher is just like a postman. I have never read in SP’s books that the preacher is just like a postman. I read that about postbox in relation with Deity worship. But I have never read that a preacher being a poor himself can make someone else a millionier. In other words without carrying the love of Godhead in his heart the preacher cannot make someone else a lover of Krishna.
It is for definete that you know these things much better than me and I am sure that I simply have misunderstood your words. And shame upon me that I have dared to utter a word after you have stated something.

Once I sent a mail to Krishna Kantha and asked why Srila Prabhupada describes the qualities and characteristics of a guru throughout his books. His answer was as follows: Srila Prabhupada was giving us a knowledge about guru so that we can recognize a true guru in him (SP).
According to Krishna Kantha while writing his books Srila Prabhupada was thinking about himself and while making statement about qualities and characteristics of a guru he was intending to point out himself alone.
In this way Krishna Kantha is doing more harm than good to His Divine Grace.

Dear Madhudvisa Prabhu,
Your attempts to keep Srila Prabhupada’s original books for future generations are enough for you to attain Lord Krishna’s mercy. You need do nothing else, for it is so important.
