On facebook at different Vashinava pages (Mostly associated with Isckon devotees) I frequently see  this person pasting following link ....  

if anyone has some information on him please share his facebook page is  

Gauranga Dasa This book raises the very serious question of, did Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati ever take diksa in any authentic Gaudiya Vaisnava parampara? The implications of this are very serious. After all if he did not, then that would mean that both ISKCON and Gaudiya Math are not connected to any authentic parampara and thus the mantras recieved in ISKCON and Gaudiya Math have no potency.

  • The Topic has to be dealt delicately. If you have read the Biography of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati it says clearly that Srila Siddhanta Saraswati was an empowered being. The Diksa process happens at two levels. One at the Physical level and second at the Spiritual Level through a medium not cognizable by the material senses. The Initiation taken at the Spiritual Level is real Diksha. You may have come across many Gurus in ISKCON and gaudiya Mutts and even other Schools who have taken physical Diksha by the prescribed process and yet people Fall. It should be seen that almost all disciples of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati reached their Ultimate destination through Diksha from their Master.

    Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Chanted 4 crores of Hari nama and undertook severe penances before he took Sanyasa and accepted the Danda. There are accounts from Srila Siddhanta Saraswati's life (I have myself heard some hair raising anecdotes about him in nawadwip ; being in the company of the Actual brigade of Lord Chaitanya mahaprabhu during his sadhana Time. He is a person who was empowered to set the tone for Kaliyuga much before our Dear Prabhupada. If there is one devotee born there are 100 non-devotees around. The acceptance of the norms of the Madhava Sampradaya has just strengthened the Physical process of the diksha that is all. The real current of the energy has traveled through the Parampara; almost lost 150 years back when Srila Bhakti Binode Thakura re-enforced it and strengthened further by the formal process of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati. There is no question of it not being authentic!!!

    Thank you very much for providing this information. when I started reading the PDF file uploaded by her.. I found it very boring and doubtful. Instead focusing on improving one's Bhakti they are only creating conflicts
  • She is an American woman named Brittany McDonalds (alias Timmy McDonalds). The above mentioned Facebook Account is her own Account presumably created on 5th March, 2014 in the name of Gauranga Dasa to preach the above message. In addition, She has her own personal Facebook Account but due to the Facebook privacy settings, her identity remains hidden. She seems to belong to a Gaudiya sect where Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is the chief presiding deity and chanting of 'Gauranga' mantra is advocated.

    Anyway, who cares what Americans say. They are lovers of conspiracy theory.
