No no no no. Srila Prabhupada said,
“Blessings? He wants my blessings? This is my blessing. You may now go to hell and rot. These rascals, that is my blessing.!”
That was what he said.
“You will never make advancement”, he never said that.
Then Srila Prabhupada went on for an hour and a half smashing Nitai in so many ways, and then right after that he went out and sat under the tree and he had me sit down right next to him and give a class. In that class I repeated exactly, everything that Prabhupada had just said about rascals who did not have faith in the disciplic succession, and did not understand. Because our disciplic succession is not a diksa succession, it is a siksa succession. Jagannath das Babaji was not the diksa guru of Bhaktivinoda Thakur, who was not the diksa guru of Gaur Kisora das Babaji. Jagannath das Babaji was the siksa, he gave instruction to Bhaktivinoda Thakur, telling him he should go preach in the Western countries. Bhaktivinoda Thakur was the God brother of Gaur Kisora das Babaji. But he requested him to initiate Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati. So, it is not a diksa.
“Did Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati get initiation from Gaur Kisora?”
“He claims he did not. He said everyone knows Gaur Kisora had no disciples. That was one of Nitai’s arguments.”
That is bogus, that is nonsense.
“That seemed to be his main argument.”
No, his main argument was that Jagannath das Babaji was not the diksa guru. Then another argument was between Baladeva Vidyabhusana and Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakur there is no connection. They lived something like a hundred and fifty years apart.
Them in our disciplic succession ,because they are not the maha-bhagavatas, these others, who actually were in the succession.
There were three other spiritual masters who came directly from Visvanatha Chakravarty Thakur, and brought it all the way down to Baladeva Vidyabhusana. And there were other men in there, their names are listed in the life history, autobiography of himself, the acarya, who said, “he was, he was, he was, he was”, and it went back to the original acarya. So, the reason they think there is some mistake, is because they did not understand that it is not all listed, because we only list them in our disciplic succession, the maha-bhagavatas, although there may be many others. Because in disciplic succession it is not required even that one be a pure devotee. Just like once Srila Prabhupada said that Lord Brahma is not a pure devotee sometimes. So, they say how can he be the head of our disciplic succession, and not be a pure devotee. Prabhupada said he does not have to be. These are very inconceivable subject matters, but that is more or less the way it works in our disciplic succession. So, he lost faith on this point. And Prabhupada never said chant sixty-four rounds a day, but even the Baba who Nitai when to get initiated from told Nitai when he was sick to go back to his guru.
“He did not.”
No. He instead left. And it was only because Yogananda met him at Mathura and he felt guilty that he took the money. Anyway, then I spent an hour land a half lecturing, smashing Nitai from top to bottom in this lecture. You would not believe it. When I started lecturing there was only forty devotees and no more. I had my eyes shut. Three quarters of the way through the lecture, I opened my eyes, and there was a least a thousand people in the temple room, packed wall to wall there were people.
“Could they understand?”
Yes, a lot of them spoke English, most of them spoke English. Krishna sent tons of people into the temple room to hear the smashing of Nitai.
Yes, It was incredible.
