GURU TATTVA #2 DISCIPLIC SUCCESS DOES NOT END ..THERE IS A SYSTEM
Discussion on guru tattva #2
For me is Prabhupada the spiritual master and last archarya!
and yes read the books and Prabhupada live in heard!!
Meena Devi Dasi:
This is apasampardaya. Yes. Srila Prabhupada can be heard in His books. Anyone can hear Him there. Like in a big pandal of 10,000 people.
He is speaking on the podium. Everyone can hear.
But not everyone is His disciple.
After He disappears... the recordings are there, the books are there.
But He has disappeared.
The system since time immemorial is
that the disciple becomes the spiritual master.
It is by qualification. Not by appointment.
Which was the mistake the devotees made in 1977.
But that was 40 years ago and that is not the situation now.
It is by qualification. If you study the books like "Srimad Bhagavatam"
you will see... Brahma to Narada, Narada to Vyasadeva,
Vyasadeva to Sukadeva, Sukadeva to Suta Goswami
who was present at the passing away of Pariksit Maharaja.
Srila Prabhupada is in that line of succession and it is still going on.
It did not end with Srila Prabhupada. It will never end.
If someone wants to actually be connected
they have to go through the system,
otherwise they can just stay in audience in the pandal.
That is alright, but they will not reach to perfection that way.
