Great spy report from today, another guru who thinks he is smarter than Prabhupada and that he knows better than Prabhupada what Krishna likes to eat. And remember, it is not problem that he offered mushrooms to Krishna, problem is that envious Hanuman made post about it.
Srila Prabhupada says:
Because mushrooms grow in a filthy place, they are not usually offered to Krishna. (https://prabhupadabooks.com/letters/delhi/november/17/1971/himavati)
That was Prabhupada, but who cares, Mushroom acarya is smarter than Prabhupada. He will offer mushrooms to Krishna anyway. Jay ho Maharaja, great educational video, you and all your disciples are going to mushroom loka. I heard that Mushishvara, the presiding demigod of Mushroom loka is looking for a family priest, Bir Krishna Goswami would be a great fit.
Comment from a learned devotee on facebook
“Cooking for oneself is prohibited, but cooking for the Supreme Lord is not prohibited.” Is mushroom cooking done for the Lord here? I leave to you to answer this question
Aren’t we always supposed to cook for the Lord? Srila Prabhupada never set different rules for cooking for Lord and cooking for ourselves. Did He?
smartavyaḥ satataṁ viṣṇur vismartavyo na jātucit sarve vidhi-niṣedhāḥ syur etayor eva kiṅkarāḥ
…..if we always remember Krishna, than we prepare foodstuffs which are known to be liked by the Lord and offer them. On the other hand, If we don’t forget Krishna, than we prepare food and than don’t forget to offer it to Krishna. It may be that Srila Prabhupada in B.g. 18.7p is stressing the point that sannyasi is on the topmost platform of always remembering Krishna?
