You ask, “I want to know that there are some cases that a person dies suddenly due to an attack, accident, etc. then how can he remember Krishna at the time of his death? He doesn’t get any time to remember Krishna.
What should be done then?”
There is NO such thing as instantanious death. This is something conjoured up by the maya masters of Bollywood/Hollywood. Time to remember Krishna is there for the sincere, always.

Srila Prabhupada established himself as the sole initiating acarya within ISKCON in his final, signed institutional directive of July 9th, 1977.
Srila Prabhupada left no institutional directive that this set-up should ever change.
The ritvik system of initiation he formally established on July 9th, 1977 (but which had already been operational within ISKCON for a number of years previously) required absolutely no physical involvement from him.
He consistently taught that the physical presence of the Guru was irrelevant
He said ISKCON was non-different from Lord Chaitanya’s sankirtana movement.
He also taught that this sankirtana movement would run for a total of 10,000 years (500 years having already passed since its inception:
“When Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu appeared, He ushered in the era for the sankirtana movement. It is also said that for ten thousand years this era will continue .”
(Srimad-Bhagavatam 8.5.23, purport)
Prabhupada: “This movement will go for ten thousand years without any impediment.”
(Conversation, June 5th, 1976)
Therefore, Srila Prabhupada shall remain the sole initiating Guru within a movement that he claimed would last another 9,500 years.
There is really nothing left for a future acarya to do; Srila Prabhupada has already done everything:
“There is nothing to be said new. Whatever I have to speak, I have spoken in my books. Now you try to understand it and continue your endeavour. Whether I am present or not present, it doesn’t matter.”
(Srila Prabhupada Arrival Speech, May 17th, 1977, Vrindavan)

“One interesting fact is that in the Fifth Canto, Chapter 19, Text 30, the names of the islands of Bharata-varsa are given. The island of Sri Lanka which you are currently on is mentioned there as Simhala and Lanka where Ravana’s empire was is mentioned. But this Lanka actually is 800 miles to the west of India, as stated in the Ramayana. So Sri Lanka is not the Lanka of Ravana. When Srila Prabhupada heard this, He laughed and said that this is another one of the misconceptions of the scientists smashed.”

There is a saying that actions speak louder than words. These words from HH Bhakti Caru are from about 11 years ago, yet is there any evidence that he has walked the talk yet?
He loves to be honoured with lavish worship and daily puja as the Guru of his disciples (cake requiring 8 devotees to carry it – included!).
He is known to get angry when there are not enough disciples glorifying him on his ‘Vyasa-Puja’ day as the one who is performing all the functions of being their eternal Guru which he now claims Srila Prabhupada actually fulfils.
He continues to take disciples and collect Daksina (gifts and money meant to be used in the service of God, not for personal sense gratification) under the plea that they must have a ‘living guru’ like him to ‘surrender to’, to ‘approach’, to take back to Godhead, to ‘chastise’ and to ‘guide’ i.e. even though he now agrees that Srila Prabhupada does this – which of course begs the obvious question as to why we need him AT ALL?!

Locanananda prabhu writes;
“To preserve his teachings in their originally published form is the way by which the acarya is honored, and to do otherwise is to dishonor him.”
However Locanananda prabhu in ARSHA PRAYOGA PART II quotes:
“If one is too big, there is no mistake. ‘Arsa prayoga’ means there may be discrepancies but it is all right. Just like Shakespeare, sometimes there are odd usages of language, but he is accepted as autority. I have explained all these things in my preface to First Canto.”
(Letter to Mandali Bhadra dated 1-20-72)
NOTE: ‘Arsa prayoga’
Yet the vedabase has:
“If one is too big, there is no mistake. Arsapreyaya means there may be discrepancies but it is all right. Just like Shakespeare, sometimes there are odd usages of language, but he is accepted as authority. I have explained all these things in my Preface to First Canto.”
(Letter to: Mandali Bhadra — Jaipur 20 January, 1972)
So why has Arsapreyaya been changed to Arsa prayoga if we have “To preserve his teachings in their originally published form”?
