PADA: Dear Akranatha, OK, you totally avoided the point. Srila Prabhupada says that Jesus is still absorbing the sins of his followers today, that means no one else has the potency to do so, and that this process can apply to a departed acharya or guru. You have failed to tell us, exactly who is doing that today for ISKCON? The GBC says they are doing that because they are now the current sin absorbing diksha gurus, fine except they keep "crashing and burning" as Badrinarayan dasa said recently. Why is your party saying most of the 230 diksha gurus, who are thus like Jesus, "crashes and burns" on a regular basis? Why would a diksha person who is like Jesus always crash and burn? This means they are not on that level.
And you then stepped into the ritvik arena, saying that the GBC are only "preachers" in ISKCON, ok preachers are priests or ritviks and not acharyas? You are juxtaposing the function of priest and acharya. We say they are preachers and so they are NOT absorbing the sins, they are merely meant to offer baptism on behalf of the acharya, they are not the acharya themselves, and you seem to agree almost by admitting, they are only preachers, not acharyas? If they are preachers, that means, you are agreeing with us!
And in fact Srila Prabhupada did tell his disciples "do not jump like monkeys"to the post of guru, yes he warned of this often. We are supposed to be his representatives, that means preachers, and worse, if we remove the preachers and make the temples "skeleton crew" as Lokanatha swami says is going on, who will do the "living preaching"? This is another contradiction, we need living people, so remove myself, Yasodananda, Kailash, Jadurani, and thousands of others, so there is almost no live person left? Even if your theory is that we need live person, there are almost no live persons left?
So, who is the person who is absorbing the sins of the new disciples, the GBC says they are doing that, and in fact they say they are often getting sick and falling down from doing that, yet you fail to tell us, since they were told not to absorb sins, where was this order ammended? Where were they told they had the capacity to absorb sins and act like another Jesus or acharya? Recently, one GBC guru sends his people out to get heavy medications, the mother of one of his disciples called me and told me, he is taking psychotropics, because "he took too many sins." OK, who told him to do that?
Therefore the Christian priest (ritvik) or ISKCON preacher does not have the capacity to do that. Srila Prabhupada says that in order to absorb sins one need to have sufficient purity and brahmana tejyas, a sort of spiritual fire, which burns off the sins. Srila Prabhupada say the reason only a pure devotee can absorb sins is that only he has the potency to do so, just like only Jesus has the potency to do so in his mission. You fail to tell us, where is the order for us neophytes to act like Jesus and absorb sins? And if psychotropics are required to absorb the sins, does that not mean your team are simply making drug addicts into acharyas? Please answer my points, ys pd
