- That is fall down -
"Yasomatinandana: Somebody told me, Prabhupada, about Vallabhacarya, that he sometimes, he once went to Lord Caitanya and said that he wrote a better commentary than a previous acarya, and Lord...
Prabhupada: Yes. Sridhara Svami.
Yasomatinandana: Lord Caitanya chastised him?
Karandhara: An unchaste wife who abandons a swami.
Prabhupada: He referred to Sridhara Svami. So swami means husband. So He sarcastically remarked, "Anyone who does not accept swami, she is prostitute."
Yasomatinandana: Is Vallabhacarya, Prabhupada, in accordance with our philosophy?
Prabhupada: Yes, he's Vaisnava, acarya. But that very deviation, that "I have done something better than Sridhara," that is not our parampara system. Then he was thinking himself better than Sridhara. That is not allowed. We should always remain servant of the servant [Cc. Madhya 13.80]. Never we shall think that "I am better than my Guru Maharaja." That is fall down."

The subject matter here is, of course, the scandalous changes done by disciples to Srila Prabhupada's books. If some persons are still unfamiliar with the facts, here is a link to get started: Blazing Edits.
