Question: I took initiation from Bhakti Abhaycaran Swami in 1989 in Lima. You know the history. At that time when my spiritual master fell down, like 18 or 19 years back. It was said at that moment that in 20 years he can come to the normal standard, good standard. 15 years. Somebody said in ISKCON that in 15 years he can come back to his normal standard. I would like to know your opinion that because now it is very required to have senior preachers in our movement.

Devotee: That his Guru Maharaj will be in normal standard in ISKCON because now we require the help of senior devotees who preach. So what is your opinion about this situation of Bhakti Abhaycaran swami?
Jayapataka Swami: So, He is preaching now. Seems to be practicing alright. I didn’t know the latest news but I talked with someone about this. I don’t know if they will accept him as a guru again, but as a preacher he can preach. He could take some senior devotee in ISKCON as a siksa guru and continue his service to Srila Prabhupada unless he is also trying to be Krsna conscious. That is what I have heard, that is what I have seen. But I didn’t hear that he applied to be recognized again. We encourage everyone to practice and preach Krsna consciousness.
