Nemi Maharaja have put out a new note with the same content as before in regards to KBMs answer to the question “Where is there any un-interpreted (as-it-is) statement from Srila Gurudeva declaring our Srila Prabhupada to be a Sakha of any kind?” The statement KBM has provided seem to reference Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura (not SP), so therefore those who favor madhurya-rasa see this as a proof that KBM has provided false information. This makes KBM fallible which in turn makes the whole argument of KBM false in their view.
Balabhadra Prabhu further pointed out that, if we accept the KBM logic in this conversation, it means that they have proved that Srila Sarasvati Prabhupada is a priya-narma-sakha. However, we know that Srila Sarasvati Prabhupada is a manjari called Nayana-mani Manjari. Hence, the logic in the KBM argument must be fallacious.
The incident shows that the KBM party’s arguments are not always reliable and conclusive.
Those who are close to the preachers of KBM seem to view Srimati Krishna Priya didi and Madhusudhana Maharaja as uttama bhagavats (or at least very close to it).
Which makes this question so very interesting: How fallible are uttama maha-bhagavats? Can they make mistakes?
acaryavan purusho veda
Only one person whose Guru is an acarya can know the truth; only one who follows the acarya (and learns directly from his acara – behaviour) can know things in truth.
Candogya Upanisad 6.14.2
I leave a lot of room for mistakes in my life – my own mistakes as well as others. This is mercy in my mind. Sure, we have to use judgment when evaluating people, but mistakes are allowed. Mistakes are fine, they are just the beginning of a journey.
You make a mistake, you have to realize it, then you make course adjustments. Those who are only able to see the mistake and not the rest of the journey is in my eyes the ones who misses out.
But in terms of uttama maha-bhagavats though, we have a view that they represent Krishna who is the Absolute Truth. Therefore, the Gurus represent the Absolute truth and can make no mistakes.
So how feasible is this? Do uttama maha-bhagavats never make any mistakes?
