Gaura-kishora das Babaji in fact remarked (about siddha-pranali): "The imitator is like a woman who enters the maternity ward and simply by producing the sounds of labor thinks that she can produce a child. Many things are required before that." GKDB was a disciple of Bhagavata dasa babaji, one of the foremost disciples of Jagannatha dasa babaji and siddha pranali was definitely practiced in that line. Read about it here: http://www.vnn.org/editorials/980412-1741/index.html GKDB was not against siddha pranali. He was against siddha pranali practiced by unqualified devotees.
