ISKCON DISCIPLIC SUCCESSION
Jaya Tirtha Charan das
In the Brahma Sampradaya, which is the 'sampradaya' of Sri Sripad Madhwacarya, up until Madhwa, I have included in the flow of devotees the lineage accepted by the general Brahma Sampradaya, but after Sripad Madhwacarya there are some changes. The reason for this is that there is no mention of anyone from Brahma, and Narad, to Vyasa, and then to Madhwa. Definately they were the great 'acaryas' in our line, but as well as them there were many worthy souls who gave in many cases their very life to the mission of the 'parampara'.
Over the course of the entire span of time that the 'parampara' has existed there has been one main root of the tree, with many four main trunks, and then many branches, sub-branches, etc., coming from them. During the sojourn of that tree in spanning the yugas to reach where we are today in the Kali Yuga different devotees have branched out to further spread the 'parampara'. I have tried to include some of these changes, but with branches, and sub-branches, .....this tree is so vast!
On various trips to India it has brought great pleasure and inspiration to visit the various temples in the mutts especially in South India. The devotees there, in those 'mutts', and associated with them, in most cases, seem to carry a special quality of Madhwacarya with them. Naturally there will always be more or lesser favourites, that's the nature of individuality.
However, as an aspiring Brahma-Madhwa-Gaudiya Vaisnava my main presentation is of that line. To those in other Madhwa Mutts I offer my respects as great Vaishnavas, but for a moment let us look into the dynamic preaching arm of the Madhwa body, the ISKCON Gaudiya line, which has now spread the glories of Sripad Madhwacarya not only throughout the world, but throughout the universe.(A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in the purport of Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Adi lila 1:19.)
I hope and pray, that as no offence is intended, that no offence will be taken due to my presentation. Although we unfortunate souls, due to karmas and the Lord's design have taken our present birth in families outside of the Vedic culture it was not entirely an ordinary thing, by the great good fortune and extreme mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and by the mercy of our Srila Prabhupada, we have been brought back into the Vedic culture, and have received 'Vaishnava diksha', initiation again according to the 'agamas' of the 'Pancaratriki' system of 'Vaishnava' initiation - such initiation has been recognised by the line of guru parampara purvacharyas.
