Did he say he didn't look it up? It looked to me like he did look
it up and _then_ disagreed with Vidya. I know that that's what
I did (although, it's true, I didn't find a copy of SvetASvatara
upanishad that is authoritative from a Gaudiya point of view.)

The certain swami you criticize here is Srila Prabhupada. You
should, of course, know that he received shehnai band & utsav
receptions at Sri Vaishnava temples like Sri Ranganath at Nellore.
And he was also given a grand reception at Simhacalam.
I am sure the Sri Vaishnavas would be similarly ashamed to hear
you call yourself one of them. Ramanuja never tolerated mayavad:
he was a digvijay, conquering all his opponents in all directions.
It's a shame that his "followers" won't let the same be done
on the net.
