Sounds like he is promoting the Gaudiya Matha gurus, whom we need to make sure we are not offending. At the same time he forgets, its the Gaudiya Matha folks that have promoted immature gurus. ys pd

If devotees were mature enough to understand guru tattva, there would not be such “my guru”/”your guru” consciousness, ISKCON-wise or not.

Because certain devotees haven’t been mature enough to understand, there are the guru CULT clubs, the multiple cults within the ISKCON society based on this OFF consciousness.

Hare Krishna. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I read the article by Chitraketu which has a lot of valid points. However, the one statement below makes me somewhat alarmed. It almost sounds like he is saying there are some personalities present who can function as spiritual masters in ISKCON. Then there will be some people who will present some individual as a guru , another group someone else, and before you know it you’ve got the same mess again.

YS,
Rama Raghava Dasa

Sincerely,
Rakesh

First, however, one must check to make fully sure that there aren’t senior devotees who are actually qualified to be spiritual masters.
