Discussion on guru tattva #8
It is like there is a big pandal program,
10,000 people and Srila Prabhupada is speaking there.
Everyone can hear and everyone is benefited.
Reading the books is like that.
Those that are really fortunate will want to approach
the person spiritual master and become
more intimately associated with him by serving under His direction.
After Srila Prabhupada leaves the planet, His books are still there
and everyone can still benefit from them,
but He cannot be approached for initiation.
He has left the planet.
His disciples who are still on the planet must be approached.
That is the disciplic succession.
But not everyone will take initiation. That is alright.
The benefit is still there by reading the books.
But that is the system. It is an eternal system.
Since the beginning of time and did not end with Srila Prabhupada.
Devotees who are preaching that no one is to accept disciples in ISKCON
are misled and are misleading others.
It is very unfortunate. Their spiritual progress is blocked.
