Most influential post-'77 Vaisnava publication!


Back To Prabhupada, Issue 39, Spring 2013

The Final Order ("TFO"), is the foundational document for the IRM and those who accept that Srila Prabhupada is ISKCON's diksa guru. To gauge its success and influence you do not need to only take the word of those who support it. We can note that those who are opposed to this document have also attested to its huge impact. Thus, we have ISKCON leader and guru, HH Bhakti Vikasa Swami, declaring that:

"The Final Order by Krishnakant Desai has been perhaps the most influential post-1977 publication in the Vaisnava world."
(Bhakti Vikasa Swami, 12/1/2013)

Additionally, Bhakti Vikasa Swami echoes the words of another ISKCON leader and guru, HH Jayadvaita Swami, who had also stated that TFO was the "rtvik Bible":

"It is the 'Bible' of rtvikites, accepted by them as the final word on guru-tattva."
(Bhakti Vikasa Swami, 12/1/2013)

Desperate to counter this enormous power of TFO, which he has openly acknowledged, and the fact that it has been over 16 years since TFO was released, Bhakti Vikasa Swami has now been forced to foolishly claim that he has finally found a paper which defeats TFO. We say foolishly, because, due to illiteracy and desperation, Bhakti Vikasa Swami has endorsed a paper, "Defeat of Ritvik-Vada", which actually ends up conceding all the key conclusions of TFO! This foolishness of Bhakti Vikasa Swami is laid bare in the exposi titled "ISKCON's Illiteracy: A Stunning Case Study", which can be read online here:
