The Fake GBC: BUTCHERS of ISKCON - Part 1

Mahesh Raja, UK
This article is in response to
These unelected butchers “GBC’s” as per Srila Prabhupada’s unrevoked “Direction of Management” (1970) have chosen to mislead the devotees - yet again by imposing an invention of “Diksha” guru that is NOT in the shastra. Their DEVIOUS ploy HAS ALWAYS BEEN how to GET RID OF SRILA PRABHUPADA THE BONAFIDE DIKSHA GURU AND REPLACE THEMSELVES AS DIKSHA GURU. Herein, we will examine in detail what the shastra says and compare the BOGUS reasonings of the fake GBC.
So here is what they give as evidence to somehow or other try to justify their claim to be Diksha Guru:
"This Krishna consciousness movement directly receives instructions from the Supreme Personality of Godhead via persons who are strictly following His instructions. Although a follower may not be a liberated person, if he follows the supreme, liberated Personality of Godhead, his actions are naturally liberated from the contamination of the material nature. Lord Chaitanya therefore says: 'By My order you may become a spiritual master.' One can immediately become a spiritual master by having full faith in the transcendental words of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and by following His instructions." Purport to Srimad Bhagavatam 4.18.5 
"A person who is liberated acharya and guru cannot commit any mistake, but there are persons who are less qualified or not liberated, but still can act as guru and acharya by strictly following the disciplic succession." Letter to Janardana, 26 April, 1968
"We may not be cent percent perfect, but as far as possible, if we follow the instruction as it is, that much perfect. In this way one will get perfection. So one has to follow. The same example, try to understand, that a perfect, expert technologist or technician or mechanic is working, and somebody is working under his instruction. So this somebody, because he is strictly working under the instruction of the expert, he's also expert. He may not be cent percent expert, but his work is expert. Is that clear? Because he is working under the expert. Do you follow? So if you follow pure devotee, then you are also pure devotee. It may not be one is cent per cent pure. Because we are trying to raise our self from the conditional life. But if we strictly follow the pure devotee, then we are also pure devotee. So far we do, that is pure. So pure devotee does not mean one has to become immediately cent percent pure. But if he sticks to the principle that "We'll follow a pure devotee," then his actions are... He is as good as a pure devotee. It is not I am explaining in my own way. It is the explanation of Bhagavata. Mahajano yena gatah sa panthah [Cc. Madhya 17.186]." 
Lecture, Los Angeles, November 25, 1968
Note: Now, the way they BLUFF others is they take them as IGNORANT FOOLS about WHAT DIKSHA ACTUALLY IS. We want the readers to SHOW what Diksha is THIS way they will be able to see CLEARLY that CONDITIONED SOULS can NOT give Diksha.
The conditioned souls can “ACT AS ACHARYA” which is: OFFICIATING ACHARYA (Ritvik Representative of the Acharya Srila Prabhupada by giving  1st and 2nd Initiations  ON BEHALF of Srila Prabhupada THE Diksha guru – other than that the CONDITIONED SOULS can NOT be Diksha guru. Their OWN statement indicates that their “Diksha” gurus are CONDITIONED SOULS who can deviate. And they are to be under GBC which means they are just PRIESTS. They are NOT Diksha Guru as per definition.
“Those who accept the service of diksha or shiksha guru within ISKCON are mandated to be strict followers of the instructions of Srila Prabhupada, and, as long as they follow, they are acting on the liberated platform. Thus they may serve, as Srila Prabhupada ordered, as bonafide representatives of the Lord and the Guru Parampara and be a via medium of Their mercy. YET IT SHOULD BE CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD THAT IF SUCH DIKSHA OR SIKSHA GURUS DEVIATE FROM STRICTLY FOLLOWING, THEY MAY FALL DOWN FROM THEIR POSITION.
THUS, TO ACT AS A DIKSHA GURU IN ISKCON MEANS TO SERVE UNDER THE GBC and in cooperation with other ISKCON authorities by functioning as a “regular guru” as Srila Prabhupada has directed.”
Note: The issue is Srila Prabhupada wanted OFFICIATING ACHARYAS and THIS is what a Ritvik REPRESETATIVE OF THE ACHARYA FACTUALLY IS. So ACTING AS ACHARYA on a non-liberated platform is SIMPLY TO PERFORM 1ST AND 2ND Initiations ON BEHALF of Srila Prabhupada.
They want to somehow justify: - “but there are persons who are less qualified or not liberated, but still can act as guru and acharya by strictly following the disciplic succession” - this as Diksha guru. This “act as guru and acharya” is NOT the same as being ACHARYA who GIVES DIKSHA.  
But what THEY want is to PRETEND TO GIVE DIKSHA. This way they EXPLOIT others by taking the money and make them THEIR OWN FREE SLAVES (“disciples”).
Now - we will address the QUALIFICATION of the Diksha guru and what EXACTLY takes place when DIKSHA is given by the Maha Bhagavata thus BY KNOWING WHAT DIKSHA FACTUALLY IS - THIS - WILL EXPOSE THE FAKE GBC’s game.
Madhya 24.330 - The Sixty-One Explanations of the Atmarama Verse
brahmano vai gurur nrnam
sarvesam eva lokanam
asau pujyo yatha harih
maha-kula-prasuto ‘pi
sarva-yajnesu DIKSITAH
sahasra-sakhadhyayi ca
na guruh syad avaisnavah
((The guru MUST be situated on the topmost platform of devotional service. There are three classes of devotees, and the guru MUST be accepted from the topmost class. The first-class devotee is the spiritual master for all kinds of people. ….When one has attained the topmost position of MAHA-BHAGAVATA; he is to be accepted as a guru and worshiped exactly like Hari, the Personality of Godhead. Only such a person is eligible to occupy the post of a guru.))
Note: the word DIKSITAH refers to DIKSHA. This means ONLY Mahabhagavata is capable to GIVE DIKSHA. FORMALITY is of giving the holy name 1st and 2nd initiation is conducted by RITVIK (OFFICIATING ACHARYA) on BEHALF of Srila Prabhupada THE DIKSHA GURU.
Conversations, October 16, 1976, Chandigarh
Interviewer: What is the procedure of the movement? Do you initiate yourself all the disciples or do your other disciples also do that?
Question: Why is DIKSHA so important?
Answer: Diksha PROCESS entails the factor of REVELATION of your RELATIONSHIP (SVARUP also called Constitutional position) with Krishna. Once you have your relationship you have the freedom of IMMORTALITY. This means you do NOT transmigrate to other bodies. OTHERWISE by force of Karma you MUST accept another body. In simple terms – if you KNOW your SVARUPA your Karma is burned-off.
This is NOT easy – it can take MANY births.
Note: it is to be understood that he has BURNED UP THE REACTIONS of his work by perfect knowledge of his CONSTITUTIONAL POSITION AS THE ETERNAL SERVITOR of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
