Hare Krishna news
Are you joking? Mahanidhi has a laptop, internet access and could immediately inform the world what realy happened. But this he won't do. So this is a bunch of his scared disciples who disavow that their "guru" wants to quit. Mahanidhi never questioned whether Prabhupada appointed successor diksha-gurus. He immediately exploited this facility of gaining name, fame, followers and wealth. Real question is, why GBC is allowing these gurus to run private bank accounts? Isn't basically the whole issue money? As soon ISKCON gurus have enough money they are going nuts. In case Mahanidhi just received a heirship from his family, this money belongs to ISKCON. ISKCON sannyasis cannot cash up anything. See the fine print.
"As soon as we offer obeisances to guru, the name should be there. We are strictly personalists. The sahajiyas, they write, 'Glories to Guru'. Why you are learning this impersonalism? Who has taught you? Daily I am offering obeisances to my guru by vibrating his real name, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati, otherwise it is impersonal." Srila Prabhupada's Letter to Bhavananda, 14th July 1972dear pada,as you can see, srila Prabhupada is herein explaining that as soon as one offers obeisances to the guru he should say the guru's name. apparently Bhavananda had heard someone shorten it in India and thought it would be nice to change things.But does Prabhupada say you have to say the name of your guru 24 hours a day? That we have to say the guru's name to satisfy your curiosity so you can blaspheme and criticize said guru? Not in this quotation. So unless you can give a more direct quote stating that everyone other than a smug "Prabhupada disciple" in name only, and that might include you, has to state the name of their guru, then don't expect anyone to do it. Because this isn't the only made up topic you have concocted in your fertile brain, that one MUST name his guru. It only says if one is glorifying the guru to say his name. It is a simple instruction about glorifying the guru. IT IS NOT ABOUT NAMING YOU GURU TO IDENTIFY WHO HE IS TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE. This isn't Christianity where if you don't name Christ as your guru on demand he will reject you.
