Srila Prabhupada says:

You know we are under disciplic succession. We do not manufacture anything by mental concoction. We do not approve that method. We receive knowledge from the authorities and out of such many ācāryas, or authorities, who have appeared and disappeared… We don’t say born and died, no. (laughter) Appear and disappear.

Lecture – Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.6.1 — New York, April 9, 1969
