Once again the leading internet pundit has boasted that he is preparing yet another article to again show how Srila Prabhupada "was" wrong to create the system for initiations Srila Prabhupada himself outlined in the July 9th letter. After half a dozen "comprehensive" anti-Prabhupada essays and articles, this pundit feels there is need for yet another comprehensive essay. We presume it will be a very lengthy article on why the Prabhupadanugas are wrong and Srila Prabhupada himself is wrong. It will contain phrases like, "post-samadhi" and "Sampradaya Acharya" but after four or five hundred words, it will say nothing, and certainly "nothing new." And it will not say the obvious, that Internet Pundit rejects Srila Prabhupada's instructions, plain and simple. Although this pundit claims to be the only one who understands Srila Prabhupada's true position as a Sampradaya Acharya, what he is really saying is Srila Prabhupada is gone and unavailable now. This is what Iskcon is saying. Internet Pundit and Iskcon both say one cannot have Srila Prabhupada as guru, that they need a living guru. Iskcon, unlike internet Pundit, says, "You need a living guru and we have some." Internet Pundit says you need a living guru, but I cannot tell you where to find one, so you have to just wait. When asked what Srila Prabhupada’s system for initiations was, internet Pundit says Prabhupada was purposefully vague. This is how Internet Pundit wins the debate, by rejecting Srila Prabhupada and then claiming Srila Prabhupada was vague. Beware of snake oil in the Sampradaya Acharya bottle.All glories to Srila Prabhupada - The Acharya Now.
