Sri Chaitanya Gaudiya mathOctober 10, 2010 — Dear Akruranatha, first of all we did not criticize anyone. The Gaudiya Matha folks attacked Srila Prabhupada first, they came out and said Srila Prabhupada’s ideas are wrong; He is wrong to have women in the temples (for example), and they went to the Madras newspapers to lodge a public complaint about us for having women in the temple.
Srila Prabhupada had to counter in the Madras newspapers saying, Swami Yati is seen every year dancing with thousands of widows, so at least my women are married. Srila Prabhupada was merely defending, you are confusing who is attacking and who is defending, they attacked Srila Prabhupada, he had to defend from their attacks, that does not mean he was attacking, he was defending.
Later they all ganged up and attacked his jiva-tattva position. You are implying that Srila Prabhupada and us are doing the attacking, no, they have attacked him and us all along, we are merely defending what Srila Prabhupada said. Are you saying we should allow people to criticize Srila Prabhupada? Why? Anyway it is simple: the teachings of Narayana Maharaja are exactly that of the Christians: (a) Some FAVORITE children – souls originate with God at birth, and they are always in heaven / vaikuntha, eternally, they never fall. However, (b) because God is a mean tyrant, He promotes whimsical / uneven / unequal justice to His children, thus some children souls are CONDEMNED at birth, they do not originate with Him and they therefore fall into the kingdom of Satan / Maya / Illusion.
This is what they taught me in Sunday School when I was five years old. Narayan Maharaja has not advanced past what I was being taught at the age of five, I am past that stage already.
Srila Prabhupada’s teaching are vastly more sophisticate than this uneven, unequal, tyrannical God idea of the Christian Church and Narayana Maharaja. God is not an unjust tyrant, He starts out ALL OF HIS CHILDREN in an EQUAL capacity. He is not biased against some children, and towards some other children, God is not a tweedle brained small minded sectarianist like us, He is GOD. He is EQUAL to ALL His children, period. I am surprised that you think we should allow this uneven justice idea to be taught, it makes God look like a TYRANT, He is NOT! I just caught a teeny little black mouse today in my plastic door trap, yep, another poor soul who has not originated in Vaikuntha at birth, so he had to fall because God is a mean spirited sectarianist, and become a suffering like anything little mouse. Sorry, you are a lawyer Akruranatha, you of all people should know, God’s mercy would be EQUAL JUSTICE TO ALL, at their birth, not favorite sons, this is NOT what God / Krishna is. Therefore, we ALL originated in Krishna’s lila and sport, not just some politically biased fortunate sons, ALL of the sons. ys pd
