Srila Prabhupada's Worship Unifies ISKCON (Kersi Mehta)

DEAR PRABHUPADANUGAS: - For more than three decades ISKCON has not been doing what Srila Prabhupada ordered. Since Srila Prabhupada left us physically the ISKCON GBC members didn't allow Him to initiate even one person via His ritvik, or representational - system. This is the only system of initiation He authorized to continue within the Society. 

If ISKCON GBC members once more start to follow His order, then naturally they will please Lord Krishna, and all spiritual success should naturally follow. Also, with everyone having the same direct relationship as Srila Prabhupada’s disciples, factionalism will be eliminated. For the first time in nearly thirty five years there will be united team spirit, with everyone working for the same goal - the service and glorification of Srila Prabhupada and Sri Krishna. 

Many ISKCON “gurus” have fallen prey to gross sinful activities; and when they leave they often take with them hundreds of thousands of dollars and many of their followers. Farms and temples have been slowed down and even shut down as well. This continual loss of properties, faith and personnel will be eliminated as faith is only placed in Srila Prabhupada, and not in fallible substitutes. 

Money currently siphoned off by the 80 or so “gurus” from their disciples in daksina (gifted money) will instead go to ISKCON's temples, making them healthy and strong. Srila Prabhupada wanted one big happy family built on love and trust. That's why He established the ritvik system with Him in the centre. 

That's why He spent days and nights writing the law books for the next ten thousand years. Please note the following instruction of Srila Prabhupada:- "I wish that each and every Branch shall keep their independent identity and co-operate keeping the Acharya (Srila Prabhupada) in centre. On this principle we can open any number of Branches all over the world. The Ramakrishna Mission works on this principle and thus as organization they have done wonderfully." 

Thus Srila Prabhupada wanted all His first class disciples, even of future generations to act as officiating-acharyas (ritviks). This way the teachings of Srila Prabhupada will remain as it is, otherwise there is always the chances of interpolation in the pure teachings due to conditioned souls acting as maha bhagavatas due to the influence of KaliYuga. 

Always at your service,
Thanks with best regards,
Your Servant,
Kersi Mehta
