Re: Letter re Sridhara Maharaja
Srila Prabhupada told me also, "Sridhara Maharaja is one of the finest preachers." I want to take you everywhere. At least at the place we have in Mayapura, people are coming from all over the world. If you just agree, then whatever kind of building you want, I will arrange it for you. They are trying to build a house for me. So both of us will stay there. And whenever you want, you can come here to your matha." - Prabhupada
[PD: Sridhara Maharaja was asked to be the president of the India yatra, he refused. He was used to be worshipped as a guru, so being an administrator was not in his interest. Yes, you are correct, SM was asked to help and he did not.]
To this second question Prabhupada replied, "For philosophy, my Godbrother B. R. Sridhara Maharaja of Navadvipa." - Tripurari Swami
[PD: This is not verified? If Srila Prabhupada had wanted us to consult with Sridhara Maharaja, he would have made that clear to the whole movement, not to one or two persons? Sridhara maharaja was totally startled that he was named as a consultant, why was he never told he was the consultant by SP? Why was this never mentioned in 1977? Why did Srila Prabhupada say that SM is the leader of the severe offender party in 1977? How come there is no tape, no letter, no evidence this conversation ever took place, and why was it not announced or discussed by anyone? And in 1982, the GBC came forward with tons of quotes why we are not supposed to associate with SM, yet even after 1982 Tripurari was trying to get voted in as a GBC guru. Why would he want to be voted in by the people who were rejecting SM? Sorry, there are way too many contradictions here.]
Okay, so Prabhupada didn't want any of his disciples to associate with any of his Godbrothers while he was still on the planet, I will give you that, because it was not necessary as they could always go to Prabhupada for philosophical advice.
[PD: SM's advise was to let them dig their own graves, which they did, and the took 2,000 children into the grave with them. Is that what you'd call sound advice?]
However, Srila Prabhupada has said himself that after his passing, because there was NO BODY ELSE even close to qualified, of all of the people who lacked qualification, the most qualified was Shridhar Dev Goswami Maharaj.
[PD: Most qualified to advise us to allow 2,000 children to go into the grave, because they were being mass molested? What advice is that, let ISKCON go into the grave?]
Why are you trying to annul this point that Prabhupada made? Tripurari Swami was merely following the order of his Guru and you make him out to seem like he's some kind of arch-villain?
[PD: I have asked Tripurari to show me a tape or letter where we were told to go to Sridhara for 35 years, there is none. Yes, allowing the children to go into the grave is villanous. SM should have stopped these bogus gurus, he would have been listened to, instead he stopped me, he said "none should protest" so I was booted out.]
The terrain wasn't very good after Prabhupada passed and it's still terrible, there is a complete lack of Maha Bhagavatas like Prabhupada, so what else could Prabhupada have said? Even if he knew that Shridhar Dev Goswami had made this error in judgment regarding the political situation of Gaudiya Math, he still recommended that his disciples take shelter in him for philosophical advice after his passing? Prabhupada never taught the deep detailed intimate advanced parts of Gaudiya Vaishnava Siddhanta, but he said you can go to Shridhar Dev Goswami Maharaj for this, what is the problem with that?
[PD: The problem is by SM's endorsing the homosexual guru in 1936, people were beaten with bricks, had their faces pushed into dogs stools, and some were killed, horrible media publicity in the 1940s, and the mission was ruined, and then, Sridhara created the same mess after 1977 by endorsing more homosexuals as gurus, and I only escaped SM's mad post 1977 cult because the police ok Krishna in the form of the police, protected me. The 1974 letter to Rupanuga is correct, none of them are qualified to be acharyas and they are very competent to harm our natural progress. ys pd]
