Dear Madhudvisa prabhu,
I have written a few comments the last couple of days. Does it take days to publish them or have you perhaps censored them?
Thanks for any reaction, Raja Gopala dasa

Actually, when the GBC members understand and realise they are there for serving ISKCON’s managerial affairs, as Srila Prabhupada instructed, everything is oke.
Furthermore, Srila Prabhupada states in his comment of the 3.9 BG verse that in the beginning stages of ones Krishna consciousness one needs the expert guidance of a devotee of Sri Krishna or from Sri Krishna himself.
It’s not eternal, this need of guidance Srila Praphupada factually declares. Thereby he gives proper, mature understanding of the relationship guru/disciple.
Srila Prabhupada many times was very much into preaching rigid sadhana bhakti but also very much into preaching “you can do it in a second if you understand”. This many ksatriya sadhanas and fake brahmins don’t understand, being completely stuck in their personal brahmajyoti.
When my guru was convinced I was convinced of the Supreme Absolute Truth and how to attain it he let go of me. Up until that time he was protective and instructive. He is a GBC member but I can imagine he many times votes against whatever being proposed within the GBC although I do not know this for a fact.
Luckily my bhakti toward Lord Krishna is not depending on the GBC, Iskcon or my guru for that matter. Naturally I am happy to have killed my guru in the proces because somehow or other I have received some spontaneous attachment also for him since naturally he is part and parcel of Sri Krishna, of course.
imho Just try to develop some taste for the relationship with Sri Krishna and thereby get rid more and more of the lower taste for temporary sense gratification. A strong desire and activities related are the main ingredients because of which Sri Krishna becomes pleased and reveals Himself more and more to you.
Srila Prabhupada and all other realised Vaisnavas ki jaya!

“… Another major Indian center is in Vrindavan, the birthplace of Lord Krishna, where the Society has recently opened the magnificent Krishna-Balarama Temple and International Guest House. …”
“Recently”? From what year is this article?

You’re right prabhu, no one wants to surrender but one simply has to if one wants to make a succes of life. Directly to Krsna like Srila Prabhupada says in the BG 3.9 purport or otherwise, because of blindness, to the spiritual master. Guru says: SURRENDER, you fool, I love you!

Actually, the 4.2 verse is for beginners in spiritual life imo and therefore very important, since we generally take of as beginners. But one should come to the spontaneous platform of Krsna consciousness, then automatically one worships the guru in some specific rasa, since he is part and parcel and the confidential servitor of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Always worshipping the Lord is always living in Navadvipa and Vrndavana, wherever you are.

“… But spiritually speaking, we are all- of course- created equal! …”
The self is not created. It’s eternal, beyond creation and destruction. That’s one of the important teachings of the Bhagavad Gita.

“I am not this body” of course refers to the ignorant material mind only.
