Winter 2006/7

Please read the message below from HH Bhakti Caru Swami (BCS):

"It is nice that you are getting such wonderful spiritual inspirations. I have noticed that you have deep appreciation for Srila Gaura Govinda Maharaja. Feel free to cultivate that spiritual attachment. Spiritual Life is a journey through the heart. Especially when your heart is taking you to the lotus feet of such an exalted disciple of Srila Prabhupada, it should be cultivated without any reservation. It is a pity that you could not meet him in person. He was a very exalted devotee and a wonderful disciple of Srila Prabhupada. Nevertheless, you can rest assured that spiritual relationships are not limited to material time and space. Although you did not meet Him when he was physically present you can endeavor to cultivate your relationship with him."
(BCS Istaghosti, Mon, April 10th, 2006)

If the name "Srila Gaura Govinda Maharaja" is replaced with "Srila Prabhupada", the above message is exactly what the IRM tells anyone in regards to their relationship with Srila Prabhupada. But it seems that double standards discriminating against Srila Prabhupada are in place. For we have already quoted BCS previously saying that:

"No-one will deny the fact that Srila Prabhupada is still present with us. But as long as we are conditioned by the material nature we will not be able to perceive him and communicate with him [...] a person from the material platform, a conditioned soul, will not be able to communicate with him directly."
(BCS, September 24th, 1993)

Further, we quoted BCS previously telling his disciples that:

"I have mentioned many times that my responsibility as your spiritual master is to take you to the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada."
(BCS, Durban disciples meeting, April 7th, 2006)

It seems that the guru not being on the planet, and one never having met the guru when he was physically present, only becomes an issue if that person is Srila Prabhupada. If it happens to be one of the guru hoaxers, then there are different rules in operation!

Thus, more evidence that the guru hoaxers fabricate their "philosophy" as they go along to, on the one hand, ensure they stay in the picture, and on the other, ensure that Srila Prabhupada remains shut out.
