Hare Krishna news
Written by another Diksa Guru wannabee, aparadhi in sheeps clothing who rejects the Founder's Ritvik system with no authorization to reject it but his own opinion that it deviates from "tradition"."The final schisms are not deserving of any extensive examination, as, at their roots, the deviations underlying them are rather obvious. About two decades ago, four words in two different places from Çréla Prabhupäda’s Will were misused to screw out a new process for carrying on the bhakti-sampradäya. As his movement expanded, Prabhupäda was unable to conduct all of the ceremonies for new disciples approved by him for initiation. As such, he appointed officiating äcäryas to conduct the ceremony on his behalf. This was not actually an innovation, because, for Vedic sacrifices, it is a common and standard procedure, even with the yajamäna present; indeed, Prabhupäda, their dékñä-guru, was present at some of these initiation ceremonies conducted by his åtviks.However, following in the footsteps of their former “ISKCON” leaders–who had taken three other words out of context and disregarded the chief aim of the Will in doing so–another apa-sampradäya sprung up, almost out of nowhere. It cited “henceforward” and “my initiated disciples” from the Will to concoct a fabulous interpretation that Prabhupäda, even after having left external manifestation, remains the dékñä guru for everyone initiated thereafter. Some of these groups opine that this idea is to be implemented for thousands of years, others say it stays in place only until the next Äcärya appears."
