TBs were never fanatical about their caste. The present generation and the one before that have never ever got involved deeply in brahminism. So they could disown the acharya easily. But I came across a few staunch supporters and regulars of the mutt. They refused to believe any bit of those roumors and strongly believed that acharya would come out of all this unscathingly. I think they were right. For the rest of us, we should learn to have faith in our Acharya, no matter what all others say. The best way to domonstrate our faith and neglect the skeptics is to visit the mutt in large numbers and start displaying the acharya's photo prominently in our homes and temples.
