Anonymous: I have read your articles very carefully and I find that my guru or as you say my rubber stamp guru is not bonafide. Well what can I say? I came to Krishna Consciousness as a young man and I began to read Bhagavad Gita when I was seventeen. That was fifteen years ago. I met my guru when I was twenty two when I was study for my degree in Biology in South America.
Now my guru is a person in karmi clothes with many girls around him. As you say he was from this JBD or Jewish background Devotee and he has also attended the University and now has PHd. This I was thinking very nice. He is very intelligent person who can train me nicely in my Krishna Consciousness. But now when I read this website of yours I am now of another opinion.
How is it possible that we are being cheated like this? I know what you say when you talk about secular humanism this we know and the more I find out about Krishna Consciousness the more I know that we must not be going to mundane academic program.
As you say many times in your writing I don’t know Srila Prabhupada. I do not have his vision. I have my guru maharaja vision. Now I have again begun to read Bhagavad Gita but I have new edition and I will soon get original one and read this. I want to know Srila Prabhupada now very much.
But you know prabhu I do not feel cheated. My guru is my guru I respect him now from distance I do not disrespect him for he gave me my name my spiritual name. But now I will take more shelter of Srila Prabhupada. I think that many more devotees like me will be doing like this when they too find out the picture of what is going on. For too long have we been in dark about this. We have been believing each other and never once thinking that what we are doing is wrong and we never once think that this is Srila Prabhupada ISKCON like you always saying.
I have always wonder what will happen when all Srila Prabhupada disciples leave their bodies who will be guru? But now I see that Srila Prabhupada will be guru as you say or he say in his papers that he will be Acarya during his lifetime and after his death. This gives me strength to know that what I am now thinking is very right for me.
Okay well thank you prabhus for your hard work and good news.
Yours too in the service of Srila Prabhupada
