A gentleman, if he commits some mistake, he admits
The persistent rascal PADA guru-tyagi's
Dear Prabhu's please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Please forgive my mistake for suggesting that Srila Prabhupada never used the phrase HEADQUARTERS. I am a fallen soul with the four defects. He certainly did use the term and he authorized the Los Angeles Temple as the World Headquarters
Now if i can represent that particular point about a headquarters for an organization, i will rephrase my sentence to:
Who authorized Kapindra swami to ban another center from Prabhupada's Sankirtana movement and make his center the headquarters of Prabhupada Sankirtana Society ?
Also i would like to refocus on the main points of my article, which have being expertly covered with this smoke screen by Kapindra's friend mr. puranjana.
1. Kapindra swami should first carefully read the articles or letters of other devotees if he believes his role is that of some spiritual leader. Simply hearing the fanatical rhetoric of others is mental speculation and acting on that is simply nonsensical.
2. After careful study of that devotees articles etc. if he finds any philosophical discrepancies he should try to reform that devotee by kind words and dealings and of course present the correct conclusion to him from Srila Prabhupada's teachings. . It is not Srila Prabhupada's policy to reject someone on any personal grounds.
3. Kapindra Swami should clearly understand that he has no authority to ban or reject anyone (what to speak of a whole temple) from Srila Prabhupada's Sankirtana movement. That idea is simply rascaldom coming from the false ego platform that one shall dominate. All devotees have been thoroughly disgusted by this type of treatment from the tamul sinister movement.
4. Kapindra swami should clearly understand that all temples are independent and that none is the head rather all are the instrumental humble servants of Srila Prabhupada's desire to spread the Holy Name in ever town and village.
"A gentleman, if he commits some mistake, he admits, "Yes." He is gentleman. And if he persists on his mistake, he is rascal. He is a rascal. So he is a gentleman."
Prabhupada: Yes, actually. He must be standing on truth. That is greatness. Because "to err is human." Anyone commits mistake. There is no doubt about it. But after committing mistake, if I stick to that mistake, that is foolishness. When it is detected that it is mistake, you must admit. That is greatness.

Prabhupada: (chuckles) He is gentleman. He has admitted. A gentleman, if he commits some mistake, he admits, "Yes." He is gentleman. And if he persists on his mistake, he is rascal. He is a rascal. So he is a gentleman. (end)

Note: It is a shame that mr. puranjana at PADA doesn't also admit his mistake. He has compromised with the Turley law firm and some of the ex-gurukula students and tried to minimize their extremely severe blasphemous charges against Srila Prabhupada, instead of acting in the way that he advertises himself as doing, namely defending Srila Prabhupada from being defamed (PRABHUPADA ANTI DEFAMATION ASSOCIATION.)
But thinking about it, it is not reasonable to expect gentlemanly behaivor from a guru-tyagi who's only goal is to get tamul out of his seat at any price. Even if it means that the most exalted name and fame of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has to be dragged through the dirt, to achieve this.
The guru-bogi's (apa-iskcon) and guru-tyagi's (pada club) are both useless persons and neither do care to counteract this great blasphemous Turley case. That is the duty of a servant of a guru and the Vaisnavas
One should tolerate insults against oneself, but when there is blasphemy committed against superiors such as other Vaisnavas, one should be neither humble nor meek; one must take proper steps to counteract such blasphemy. This is the duty of a servant of a guru and Vaisnavas.
(C.C. Adi Lila 10.85)
So the ISKCON breakdown is - tamul must be driven out, the grudge is against tamul. The whole plan is how to get out this tamul and not how to preach
Prabhupada:Our Kunja Babu also planned like that. He thought, "By cheating all the God-brothers, I have got now Caitanya Matha. And people will come to see Caitanya Mahaprabhu's birthplace, and I will get good income. And it will be distributed amongst my brothers and sons and myself. That's all." That is his scheme.
Tamala Krsna: Perfect material plan.
Prabhupada: Yes. It is another way of earning money. And he was always after Guru Maharaja only for this purpose. Guru Maharaja took that "Oh, this man is helping me." But he had no such plan, to help Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati. He had the plan, "Keep Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati in front, earn money, and put it in my pocket." That was his very beginning. He was taking money like anything. But he was a good manager. Other God-brothers complained, sannyasis. Guru Maharaja used to say that "Why you are complaining? You cannot reform him, your God-brother? And if I would have to keep expert manager like him, I would have to pay something. Suppose he is taking something, why do you grudge?" (Prabhupada laughing) He would say like that. So nobody could say anything. But after the demise, everything burst out. "Kunja Babu must be driven out." That was the whole plan of Gaudiya Matha breakdown. The grudge was against Kunja Babu.
Tamala Krsna: Who is Kunja Babu?
Prabhupada: That Tirtha Maharaja. His name is Kunja Vihari Sar. So that was boiling in everyone's heart. So as soon as Guru Maharaja passed away, so that burst out. And the whole plan was how to get out this Kunja Babu.
Tamala Krsna: Not how to preach.
Prabhupada: No. This was the cause of breakdown. This was suppressed by Guru Maharaja under his influence, but the rebellious was there during his lifetime. And it burst into... Therefore he advised that "You make a governing body and Kunja Babu should be allowed to remain manager." This was directly spoken. He never asked anybody to become acarya. He asked that "You form a governing body of twelve men and go on preaching, and Kunja Babu may be allowed to remain manager during his lifetime." He never said that Kunja Babu should be acarya. None, none of them were advised by Guru Maharaja to become acarya. His idea was "Let them manage; then whoever will be actual qualified for becoming acarya, they will elect. Why I should enforce upon them?" That was his plan. "Let them manage by strong governing body, as it is going on. Then acarya will come by his qualifications." But they wanted that... Because at heart, they were, "After demise of Guru, I shall become acarya." "I shall become acarya." So all the acaryas began fight.

Note: So the ISKCON breakdown is - tamul must be driven out, the grudge is against tamul. The whole plan is how to get out this tamul and not how to preach. No, not how to preach about the importance of hearing from Srila Prabhupada with the aim to again bring him back in the center as the Acarya. (acarya will come by his qualifications - I will live forever from my books and you will utilise.) Or how to preach about saving Srila Prabhupada from the second poisoning i.e. the book changing. Or to strongly preach in defense of Srila Prabhupada's honor, and to practically cooperate to achieve these things. No because at heart, they are, "After demise of Guru, I shall become acarya." "I shall become acarya." So all the acaryas began to fight.
The PADA guru tyagi's are very hard to capture because they present themselves as guru-sevi's although at heart they don't have the service mentality towards Srila Prabhupada. They defend Srila Prabhupada in name only. "Child Molester Guru's" they cry, and "these guru-bhogi's poisoned Prabhupada to death" but these things are not really their concern but are simply vehicles which they use to achieve their objective i.e. "tamul must be driven out then i become Acarya (in other words "i become famous as the great reformer and all will listen to me not Prabhupada")
When the Turley case (which makes Srila Prabhupada the scapegoat for all the crimes of apa-iskcon) was officially announced, the PADA guru-tyagi's tried to play down the very severe blasphemous charges made against Srila Prabhupada, WHY ?
The PADA guru-tyagi's have considered all along that this case will be their best vehicle to get tamul out. To defend Srila Prabhupada would mean fighting against the blasphemous mentality now fully manifest in the Turley party and organizing a truthful court case bringing in the facts regarding Srila Prabhupada's instructions on Gurukula, protection of children etc. and on how the apa-iskcon neglected all of these instructions and his Direction of Management.
Srila Prabhupada's own poisoning to death at the hands of the pseudo-Krishna cult leaders would also be main evidence in defense of the real Hare Krishna movement and it's saintly Founder-Acarya. Such a genuine fight would take time to manifest and therefore prolong tamuls stay in his apa-iskcon acarya seat.
For over twenty years the PADA guru-tyagi's have been waiting for tamuls seat, now the smell of the BIG BHOGA is very strong due to Mr. Turley's greedy interests.
So the Lord put these PADA guru-tyagi's to the test.
Fight and defend Srila Prabhupada or go for tamuls seat with the help of the blasphemers Turley and co. ?
They failed the test long ago and have now exposed their true colors.
39. You have become renouncers, brothers, so renounce everything. But if you also renounce the order of the spiritual master, then what kind of renunciation is that?
40. The one who renounces the guru’s order (guru tyagi) and the one who tries to enjoy the assets of his spiritual master (guru-bhoghi) are two kinds of useless persons. First become a servant of your spiritual master (guru-sevi) and then you will understand things clearly.
(Extracts from the Phalgun Krishna Pancami – an offering of prayers by Srila Prabhupada to Srila 108 Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur, Vrindavana, India, 1961)
The order of the spiritual master
One should not at any time tolerate blasphemy and insults against Lord Visnu or His devotees. A devotee is generally very humble and meek, and he is reluctant to pick a quarrel with anyone. Nor does he envy anyone. However, a pure devotee immediately becomes fiery with anger when he sees that Lord Visnu or His devotee is insulted. This is the duty of a devotee. Although a devotee maintains an attitude of meekness and gentleness, it is a great fault on his part if he remains silent when the Lord or His devotee is blasphemed.
Your servant Mukunda dasa.
