Question:

Do you think Srila Prabhupada appointed 11 acaryas as was claimed by the 11 acaryas?

What were your views of this at the time and now?

What do you think were Srila Prabhupada's wishes regarding continuing initiations in ISKCON, Do you think he left this to the GBC to decide and to 'time' to decide (a bit like Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakur not appointing an acarya/successor and wanting his disciples to continue preaching united under an official body)?

Question:

How do we understand the statements of Srila Prabhupada that defy common sense?
My question is not specific to what I could eat to make my body happy, but "how do we understand statements by pure devotees that defy common sense?" One might be able to explain away sentences such as in the purport of CC 2.4.169 Srila Prabhupada mentions that, "One should not eat fish or other non-vegetarian food during the month of Kartika. A non-vegetarian diet means fish and meat. Similarly, masura dhal and urad dhal are also considered non-vegetarian. These two dhals contain a great amount of protein, and food rich in protein is considered non-vegetarian," however if you have to give to an intelligent reader they defy common sense. So, then comes the question of hermeneutics. In our parampara, it is not just important to understand the scriptures, but the writings of acaryas such as Srila Prabhupada. I refuse to compromise myself saying that some parts of Srila Prabhupada's writings from which I can't extract sense from should be avoided.
