Nice research!
Please make another thread with the title "gaudya math vs iskcon"
It does not suit into this thread.

I also posted the VNN article in the Iskcon side of the forum.

Dear anadi,
I have read your previous posts on this subject (at least the main thread posted on the forum that your profile linked to). I think you are basing too much on externals. Bhakti is based on consciousness;


Dandavat,

1. It is true that one might be deluded to think in that way, but the externals have a big impact, through the mind, on the consciousness of any sadhaka, and this is why there are many rules for the externals.
2. The second principle is that of anugatya – of following the orders of the acaryas from the line of gurus one is following. In this case, as Bhaktisidhanta Saraswati, had no guru, and no guru line, he made up some other rules.
3. Sadhana Bhakti has an external component, as well as an internal one and in the case of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, Bhaktisidhanta Saraswati reinvented parts of both anew.
4. The most important ist also that on the internal level he left the path given by the Gaudiya Vaishnavas, as long as he never accepted a guru, who should have give him bheka and siddha pranali.

"A siddha-pranali consists of the guru-pranali, a channel of gurus, in their siddha-forms (gopi-svarupas). One’s own guru, his guru, and the subsequent gurus traced back to the associates of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu form the guru-pranali, i.e one’s own guru-parampara.

In due course of time, a guru in the Gaudiya Vaishnava sampradaya reveals the details of his own siddha-form, of the siddha-forms of the preceding gurus, and of the siddha-form of the sadhaka to the qualified sadhaka. This is popularly called the giving of siddha-pranali, as the initiate becomes the last link in a channel of gopis preserved over the generations from a guru to a disciple."
