Thanks, I think I got Palaka's idea already: (A) We must distribute Srila Prabhupada's books because then, (B) People will naturally be attracted to Srila Prabhupada as their guru, and they will accept him as their guru, (C) Except according to Palaka dasa, anyone who reads the books and becomes inspired to accept Srila Prabhupada as their guru is "like a Christian who is part of the Catholic Church."
And those of us promoting Srila Prabhupada as the guru are also bogus Catholic Church types. Fine except (D) Rupanuga's GBC pals are voting in gurus, like the Vatican votes for the Pope?
I think people like Palaka are the number one reason people are not distributing and reading the books, because after they read, then Palaka types tell them to forget all about having Srila Prabhupada as their guru, its a waste of time to worship him because -- if they accept him as their guru they are bogus Catholic Church. No wonder you folks have no temples, no devotees, no programs, no nada, because you are countermanding and arguing with yourself! You cannot distribute the books of a guru, and then tell the people who read the books they cannot accept the guru who wrote the books -- as their guru? You are arguing with your own shadow, no wonder nobody hears about your program, its rudderless. ys pd
