Bhakti Viksa swami is following -- what?

Qualification for Being Acarya/Diksa-guru

In Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Caitanya-caritamrta Adi 1.13 in Mayapur on April 6, 1975, he discussed the qualification for being an acarya. From the context it is clear that Srila Prabhupada included the function of initiating as part (if not a distinguishing feature) of the role an acarya. His Divine Grace also stressed strict following, and quoted the "yare dekha" verse.

Excerpts: "So we have to follow the acarya. Then, when we are completely, cent per cent follower of acarya, then you can also act as acarya. This is the process. Don't become premature acarya. First of all follow the orders of acarya, and you become mature. Then it is better to become acarya. Because we are interested in preparing acarya, but the etiquette is, at least for the period the guru is present, one should not become acarya. Even if he is complete he should not, because the etiquette is, if somebody comes for becoming initiated, it is the duty of such person to bring that prospective candidate to his acarya."

"And to become acarya is not very difficult. First of all, to become very faithful servant of your acarya, follow strictly what he says. Try to please him and spread Krsna consciousness. That's all. It is not at all difficult. Try to follow the instruction of your Guru Maharaja and spread Krsna consciousness. That is the order of Lord Caitanya.

amara ajnaya guru hana tara' ei desa
yare dekha tare kaha 'krsna'-upadesa

"By following My order, you become guru." And if we strictly follow the acarya system and try our best to spread the instruction of Krsna... Yare dekha tare kaha 'krsna'-upadesa..."

[PADA: Bhakti Vikas swami keeps saying his GBC guru program is "strictly following." OK, and yet most of the "parampara gurus" in the BVKS guru system has fallen down, and according to Jayadvaita swami, many of these alleged messiahs has fallen into "illicit sex with men, women and children." Lets get this straight, illicit sex with men, women and children is -- acharya, and is "following strictly"? This is the problem, BVKS thinks that deviants are strict acharyas, sorry, they are not! These people are not even following ordinary mundane morality strictly, what to speak of acharya's standards. And since BVKS endorses the system mentioned above, and he is himself voted in as a member of this illicit sex messiah's club, that means he is endorsing the worship of illicit sex as Lord Krishna's acharya successors project. BVKS is not following anything, he is making this up, there is no such thing as the worship of illicit sex being acharyas, or those who promote that system like BVKS is doing, being acharyas either. ys pd]
