[PADA: This is the whole problem since 1977. The GBC says its acharyas are managed by their committee. Then, they cannot "manage" their acharyas, because, acharyas are not managed by a committee?
Then Sivarama comes forward to help, but he is another acharya? How can acharyas contain and control "deviating" acharyas? This is another foolish idea, acharyas are going to contain and control other acharyas -- because they are deviating?
Yep, Hrdayananda is the pied piper and he is going to take people away from ISKCON. Who is left in ISKCON? Anyway, this is a good example of why their "living guru" program fails, once a person thinks he is the guru spokesman for God, he then thinks he no longer needs to be part of, or under the control of, the GBC.
OK the acharya is not under the control of a GBC, fine except -- Hrdayananda is not an acharya. The GBC has to admit this point, or they will continue to have these spin off acharya programs taking men, property and assets continue to be drained off of ISKCON. ys pd]
