[PADA: If anyone can help this lady, that would be nice. ys pd]


In French her condition is called Infarctus. I just received a message from Kishori Prabhu this morning. It appears that New Mayapur temple has not allowed her to visit the temple for quite some time now which is a big part of her stress. In her broken English this is part of what she wrote to me:


Guna I am simply weeping, weeping.

Is Mahanidhi Swami now Wearing White?

PADA: After he gave a written statement that the allegations against him are the work of Kali Yuga Chelas (like PADA)? What up? Anyway if he is wearing white, and he has given up his false sannyasa program, bravo, more of this honesty is needed. And this proves what we said, he is not qualified to be issuing lectures on "Radha Krishna Bhava" as he has apparently done. Not the first time PADA was right at the start, and the facts later on caught up. Or what? Radha Krishna Bhava folks would also not be criticizing us as agents of Kali either, they have higher things to do. ys pd


Paramadvaiti defends Mahanidhi (2015)

Mahanidhi Swami – for the sake of all his friends

All glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga.

Dear readers, please accept my obeisances.

After hearing about the accusation made against my beloved god brother, Mahanidhi Swami, I went to visit him at his place in Radha Kunda as soon as I could. He was the same wonderful, humble vaishnava as always. We regretted the slander campaign made against him, especially considering the sufferings caused to all his friends, disciples and joyful readers of the twenty five books he has published over the years.

The story is short. He was accused of having had an illicit relationship with a disciple from India, a married woman he has known for over twenty years, as well as her husband. The story was made up and has no basis at all. Neither he nor the lady was interviewed. Only some heard something said by ill-disposed individuals who made up these rumors. He was not in the mood to retaliate the viciousness of the procedure. Talking with him deeply, we both felt that it is best to leave the punishment of the wrongdoers to Yamaraj. He was accused and judged guilty and then denounced publicly via, without a hearing or giving him an opportunity of a defense of any kind.

The accusers attempted to create doubt in the mind of the lady’s husband. Mahanidhi Swami was told: “Get out of Radha Kunda, your life is in danger”. This whole slander affair has both childish and criminal features. When Mahanidhi Swami realized that people wanted to pressure him out of the institution he had served for thirty-eight years, he was disheartened and decided to renounce to their company, rather than to get into such a conflict. They had already ruined his reputation, which hurt him deeply, after having worked for the welfare of all through his books and lectures, etc. Even though he had been previously inclined to retire to bhajan and studies, he has meticulously worked to share the treasures of the Vaishnava literature with others.

I want to tell you from the bottom of my heart that I will be using the popularity of this website ( to reach the vaishnava world community to express his true feelings and to protect his integrity. Let the truth be my witness. It is our duty in this world to help each other and this has to be reflected in our relationships.

Thanks to Lord Krishna I did not judge Mahanidhi Maharaj because of those publications. Otherwise, I also would have lost one of my lifelong friends succumbing to gossip, or even worse, to some motivated conspiracy. What could be the motive? He was too popular and did not fit in with the party line of the spiritual master who has no standing except by institutional approval. The administration approves who can be a guru or not. They can remove you without a trial, without even hearing your defense. It sounds a lot like fascism doesn’t it?

With respect

Swami B.A. Paramadvaiti

All glories to Sri Murari Gupta! Disappearance, Sunday, October 13, 2019

All glories to Sri Murari Gupta!

Disappearance, Sunday, October 13, 2019


sri-murari gupta sakha - premera bhandara

prabhura hridaya drave suni’ dainya yanra


Murari Gupta, the twenty-first branch of the tree of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, was a storehouse of love of Godhead. His great humility and meekness melted the heart of Lord Caitanya.


Sri Murari Gupta wrote a book called Sri Caitanya-carita. He belonged to a vaidya physician family of Srihatta, the paternal home of Lord Caitanya, and later became a resident of Navadvipa. He was among the elders of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Lord Caitanya exhibited His Varaha form in the house of Murari Gupta, as described in the Caitanya-bhagavata, Madhya-lila, Third Chapter. When Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu exhibited His maha-prakasa form, He appeared before Murari Gupta as Lord Ramacandra.

When Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Nityananda Prabhu were sitting together in the house of Srivasa Thakura, Murari Gupta first offered his respects to Lord Caitanya and then to Sri Nityananda Prabhu. Nityananda Prabhu, however, was older than Caitanya Mahaprabhu, and therefore Lord Caitanya remarked that Murari Gupta had violated social etiquette, for he should have first shown respect to Nityananda Prabhu and then to Him. In this way, by the grace of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Murari Gupta was informed about the position of Sri Nityananda Prabhu, and the next day he offered obeisances first to Lord Nityananda and then to Lord Caitanya. 

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu gave chewed pan, or betel nut, to Murari Gupta. Once Sivananda Sena offered food to Lord Caitanya that had been cooked with excessive ghee, and the next day the Lord became sick and went to Murari Gupta for treatment. Lord Caitanya accepted some water from the waterpot of Murari Gupta, and thus He was cured. The natural remedy for indigestion is to drink a little water, and since Murari Gupta was a physician, he gave the Lord some drinking water and cured Him.

When Caitanya Mahaprabhu appeared in the house of Srivasa Thakura in His Caturbhuja murti, Murari Gupta became His carrier in the form of Garuda, and in these pastimes of ecstasy the Lord then got up on his back. It was the desire of Murari Gupta to leave his body before the disappearance of Caitanya Mahaprabhu, but the Lord forbade him to do so. 

This is described in Caitanya-bhagavata, Madhya-lila, Chapter Twenty. When Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu one day appeared in ecstasy as the Varaha murti, Murari Gupta offered Him prayers. He was a great devotee of Lord Ramacandra, and his staunch devotion is vividly described in the Caitanya-caritamrita, Madhya-lila, Fifteenth Chapter, verses 137 through 157. (A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita. Adi-lila 10.49. purport.)

Adi 10:50

pratigraha nahi kare, na laya kara dhana

atma-vritti kari’ kare kutumba bharana


Srila Murari Gupta never accepted charity from friends, nor did he accept money from anyone. He practiced as a physician and maintained his family with his earnings.


It should be noted that a grihastha (householder) must not make his livelihood by begging from anyone. Every householder of the higher castes should engage himself in his own occupational duty as a brahmana, kshatriya or vaisya, but he should not engage in the service of others, for this is the duty of a sudra. One should simply accept whatever he earns by his own profession. 

The engagements of a brahmana are yajana, yajana, pathana, pathana, dana and pratigraha. A brahmana should be a worshiper of Vishnu, and he should also instruct others how to worship Him.

A kshatriya can become a landholder and earn his livelihood by levying taxes or collecting rent from tenants. A vaisya can accept agriculture or general trade as an occupational duty. Since Murari Gupta was born in a physician’s family (vaidya-vamsa), he practiced as a physician, and with whatever income he earned he maintained his family. As stated in Srimad-Bhagavatam, everyone should try to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead through the execution of his occupational duty. That is the perfection of life. This system is called daivi-varnasrama. 

Murari Gupta was an ideal grihastha, for he was a great devotee of Lord Ramacandra and Caitanya Mahaprabhu. By practicing as a physician he maintained his family and at the same time satisfied Lord Caitanya to the best of his ability. This is the ideal of householder life. (A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita. Adi-lila 10.50. purport.)

Adi 10.51

cikitsa karena yare ha-iya sadaya

deha-roga bhava-roga, - dui tara kshaya


As Murari Gupta treated his patients, by his mercy both their bodily and spiritual diseases subsided.


Murari Gupta could treat both bodily and spiritual disease because he was a physician by profession and a great devotee of the Lord in terms of spiritual advancement. This is an example of service to humanity. Everyone should know that there are two kinds of diseases in human society. One disease, which is called adhyatmika, or material disease, pertains to the body, but the main disease is spiritual. The living entity is eternal, but somehow or other, when in contact with the material energy, he is subjected to the repetition of birth, death, old age and disease.

The physicians of the modern day should learn from Murari Gupta. Although modern philanthropic physicians open gigantic hospitals, there are no hospitals to cure the material disease of the spirit soul. The Krishna consciousness movement has taken up the mission of curing this disease, but people are not very appreciative because they do not know what this disease is. A diseased person needs both proper medicine and a proper diet, and therefore the Krishna consciousness movement supplies materially stricken people with the medicine of the chanting of the holy name, or the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, and the diet of prasada.

There are many hospitals and medical clinics to cure bodily diseases, but there are no such hospitals to cure the material disease of the spirit soul. The centers of the Krishna consciousness movement are the only established hospitals that can cure man of birth, death, old age and disease. (A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita. Adi-lila 10.51. purport.)

"All the devotees worshiped Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu in this way, and the Lord remained in ecstasy for seven praharas, or twenty-one hours. He took this opportunity to show the devotees that He is the original Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, who is the source of all other incarnations, as confirmed in the Bhagavad-gita (10.8): aham sarvasya prabhavo mattah sarvam pravartate. All the different forms of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, or vishnu-tattva, emanate from the body of Lord Krishna. Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu exposed all the private desires of the devotees, and thus all of them became fully confident that Lord Caitanya is the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

"Some devotees call this exhibition of ecstasy by the Lord sata-prahariya bhava, or “the ecstasy of twenty-one hours,” and others call it mahabhava-prakasa or maha-prakasa. There are other descriptions of this sata-prahariya bhava in the Caitanya-bhavagata, Chapter Nine, which mentions that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu blessed a maidservant named Duhkhi with the name Sukhi. 

He called for Kholaveca Sridhara, and showed him His maha-prakasa. Then He called for Murari Gupta and showed him His feature as Lord Ramacandra. He offered His blessings to Haridasa Thakura, and at this time He also asked Advaita Prabhu to explain the Bhagavad-gita as it is (gitara satya-patha) and showed special favor to Mukunda. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita. Adi-lila 17.18. purport.)

varaha-avesa haila murari-bhavane

tanra skandhe cadi’ prabhu nacila angane


One day Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu felt the ecstasy of the boar incarnation and got up on the shoulders of Murari Gupta. Thus they both danced in Murari Gupta’s courtyard.


One day Caitanya Mahaprabhu began to cry out, “Sukara! Sukara!” Thus crying out for the boar incarnation of the Lord, He assumed His form as the boar incarnation and got up on the shoulders of Murari Gupta. He carried a small gadu, a small waterpot with a nozzle, and thus He symbolically picked up the earth from the depths of the ocean, for this is the pastime of Lord Varaha. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita. Adi-lila 17.20. purport.)

Sri Murari Gupta in all humility in his Chaitanya Mangala presentation of Lord Chaitanya's pastimes first begs for the blessings of all 'mahabhagavatas'. "Then I can properly sing the glories of the Lord. I am the lowest of the low, so how can I explain the greatness of Sri Caitanya's transcendental character? Since I don't know anything, what's the use of my incoherent words? If, without knowing the highest truths about Lord Caitanya, I try to say something, I will suffer embarrassment before the great souls.

Although I am not qualified and full of faults, I cherish an intense desire to sing about the sweet qualities of Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu."

"While living in Navadwip, Sri Murari Gupta had the opportunity to remian always in the company of Gaurachandra. Who can describe his greatness? He is known throughout the world as Hanuman. After crossing the ocean to Lanka, Hanuman burned Ravan's palace to the ground. Then Hanuman brought Rama the good news about His beloved Sita. He revived Laksmana by bringing 'visalya-karani' (a medical herb). That same Hanuman now resides in Nadia as Murari Gupta.

Being highly realised, Murari Gupta knows all truths. As an eternal associate of the Lord, he is fixed at the lotus feet of Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu. He expertly told all of Lord Caitanya's childhood and boyhood pastimes in his great Sanskrit epic, 'Sri-Krishna-Caitanya-carita-mahakavya',(also called 'Karcha', dairy.).(Caitanya Mangala. 1994. Mahanidhi Swami, page 4.)

Murari Gupta begged Lord Caitanya (Gauranga) to "please be merciful, please give me ecstatic love of God!"

"Lord Gauranga said, 'Listen Murari, You have love for Me. So just serve the 'Parabraman' appearing in the human form, having the colour of an 'indranila' gem(blue sapphire). He stands most attractively in His three-fold bening form, carrying a flute in His hand. Worship Srimati Radharani, the golden comlexioned daughter of King Vrshabhanu. She is the original energy of the Lord, and Her effulgence defeats the colour of 'gorachana' (bright yellow).

"Engage yourself in the service of the 'gopis', and you'll attain the son of Nanda. In 'cintamani-bhumi', Vrindavana-dham, He sits on a jewelled throne resting upon a gem-studded platform surrounded by 'kalpa-vrksha' trees. By His inconceivible potency, 'Kama-dhenu' (surabhi-cows) wander everywhere fulfilling all desires. His glittering bodily effulgence is known as the formless 'Brahman'. You should know that this is the sweet truth about Krishna."

'The devotees felt transcendental joy to hear these talk from Lord Gauranga. I a mood of submission, Murari Gupta requested, "My lord, I want to see the Lord's form as Raghunatha (Lord Rama)."

Within a second, Murari saw Lord Ramachandra in His beautiful body the colour of fresh green grass. Sitadevi, Laksmana, bharata and Satrughna stood around the Lord. Murari rolled on the ground in astonishment. Gaurasundara pacified him with the touch of His lotus hand while blessing him. "May you become saturated in love of God. Actually Murari, you are no one other than Hanuman, and I am the same Lord Rama." After saying this, the Lord entered the temple."(Caitanya Mangala. Locan dasa Thakura.; Mahanidhi Swami. 1994. page 134.)

Once Lord Caitanya asked Murari Gupta to recite some verses he had composed, "For My pleasure, please recite that verse you composed."

'Murari Gupta cited his book Sri Krishna Caitanya-carita: "I worship the blessed Lord and master of the three worlds, Sri Ramachandra. He wears a brilliant crown covered with a strand of jewels whose shining lights up all directions. His dazzling earings defeat the brilliance of Sukra and Brhaspati. his beautiful face looks like a pure spotless moon.

"I worship the lotus feet of the master of the three worlds, Sri Ramachandra, whose charming eyes appear like blossoming lotus flowers. his red lips look like 'bimba' fruits, and His well-shaped nose attracts eveyone. His wonderfull smile embarrasses the moonlight."

After hearing these verses, Gaura put His feet on Murari's head. Then He wrote the name "Ramadasa" on his forehead. Prabhu said, "Murari, from today on, by My mercy, you'll be known as Ramadasa. Without Raghunatha, you can't live a moment. Know for certain that I am that same Lord Raghunath (Rama)."

To the surprise of everyone present, Lord Gauranga showed His transcendental form as Lord Ramachandra, long with Janaki (Sita), Laksmana, Hanuman, and other associates. Instantly, Murari fell at the Lord's feet and praised Gauranga. "All glories to Raghavira. He's the same as the darling of Sacimata." Then Murari rolled in the dust. Crying in happiness, he offered more prayers.

Showing mery, Mahaprabhu said, "Murari, you should worship Me, and forget anything other than 'bhakti'. Although I am your worshippable Lord Raghunatha, still you should worship the lord of Radha. Perform 'sankirtan', attentively hear the glories of Radha and Krishna, and be devoted to Me."(Caitanya Mangala. Locana dasa Thakura.; Mahanidhi Swami, page 153-154.)

Madhya 11.152

prathame murari-gupta prabhure na miliya

bahirete padi’ ache dandavat hana

meeting; bahirete—outside; padi’—falling down; ache—was there; dandavat—falling flat like a stick; hana—becoming so.


Murari Gupta at first did not meet the Lord but rather remained outside the door, falling down like a stick to offer obeisances.

Madhya 11.153

murari na dekhiya prabhu kare anveshana

murari la-ite dhana aila bahu-jana


When Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu could not see Murari amongst the devotees, He inquired about him. Thereupon many people immediately went to Murari, running to take him to the Lord.

Madhya 11.154

trina dui-guccha murari dasane dhariya

mahaprabhu age gela dainyadhina hana


Thus Murari Gupta, catching two bunches of straw in his teeth, went before Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu with humility and meekness.

Madhya 11.155

murari dekhiya prabhu aila milite

pache bhage murari, lagila kahite


Upon seeing Murari come to meet Him, Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu went up to him, but Murari began to run away and speak as follows.

Madhya 11.156

more na chuniha, prabhu, muni ta’ pamara

tomara sparsa-yogya nahe papa kalevara


“My Lord, please do not touch me. I am most abominable and am not fit for You to touch because my body is sinful.”

Madhya 11.157

prabhu kahe,—murari, kara dainya samvarana

tomara dainya dekhi’ mora vidirna haya mana


The Lord said, “My dear Murari, please restrain your unnecessary humility. My mind is disturbed to see your meekness.”

Madhya 11.158

eta bali’ prabhu tanre kaila alingana

nikate vasana kare anga sammarjana


Saying this, the Lord embraced Murari and had him sit down by His side. The Lord then began to cleanse his body with His own hands.

Madhya 11.159-160

acaryaratna, vidyanidhi, pandita gadadhara

gangadasa, hari-bhatta, acarya purandara

pratyeke sabara prabhu kari’ guna gana

punah punah alingiya karila sammana


Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu then again and again embraced all the devotees, including Acaryaratna, Vidyanidhi, Pandita Gadadhara, Gangadasa, Hari Bhatta and Acarya Purandara. The Lord described their good qualities and glorified them again and again.

Madhya 15.137

murari-guptere prabhu kari’ alingana

tanra bhakti-nishtha kahena, sune bhakta-gana


Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu then embraced Murari Gupta and began to speak about his firm faith in devotional service. This was heard by all the devotees.

"There was a devotee of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. His name was Murari Gupta. He was physician to the then Nawab, Muslim Nawab. Now, they were sitting. The Nawab was going some hunting excursion or something like that, but he was Nawab’s physician. He was to accompany him. So they were sitting on the back of the elephant.

In the meantime Murari Gupta saw one peacock, and as soon as he saw the peacock, the feather, he at once remembered Krishna and at once fainted and fall down. This is called alambana. This is called alambana. Alambana means anything to the context, immediately he remembers his Lord and becomes ecstatic. This is the first-class stage of Krishna consciousness."

Sinister Illuminati Stopping Prabhupada's Varnasrama (Padmalochana Das)

Respected One,


Why did i send you this mail?

1. I presented a practical proposal to establish Varnashrama in the entire world.

2. Forwarded it to HH Bhaktiraghava Swami Mh (and the GBC).

3. They (with respects) did not respond to it even after several followup mails.

4. At last i told them if they did not respond to me, i shall make a report on the sinister movement inside ISKCON (Illuminati) and write it to other devotees world wide.

5. They did not respond, and thus the mail to you.

See - "Mail to HH Bhaktiraghava Swami Mh.pdf" in zip file.

Please find the attachment:

Feel free to forward.

Hare Krishna.

Ys, Padmalochan das (Pranav Joshi)

PS: After i sent this mail from my original to some devotees, pamho changed my password without asking me. And i'm sure similar thing may happen to after i have sent this mail to you. Effectively, i won't own the id and any more.

Any mails coming from these two ids, form now on, are not my doings.
Mail me on -


PADA: Thanks prabhu. I am very happy that since you find that the GBC is not encouraging Srila Prabhupada's instructions on establishing self sufficient varnasrama projects, you want to try to establish these ideas independently. Its gradually dawning on a whole lot of people that the GBC are corrupt, and thus they are like a conspiracy, cabal, illuminati or whatever you may want to call it. 

The whole world was supposed to have by now many these varnasrama places of rural devotee farm shelters. These properties would be set aside for the devotees in many different countries, to take refuge of as the mundane society collapses and gets more difficult, if not nearly impossible for the devotees to dwell in. 

Instead, the ISKCON leaders mostly started living like Saudi princes with: jet set life styles, fancy dwellings, big cars, many servants, expensive computers, fancy watches, and maybe the added perk of having illicit sexual relations with some of these "servants." So they collectively neglected these rural projects, and still do for the most part. Then again a number of ex-gurukuli children complain they were not even getting proper food as their money was being siphoned off by the jet set crowd, never mind the farm's funds were being shifted.

And thus many of of the ISKCON farms deteriorated badly, many cows suffered, many devotees suffered, and in some cases various criminals if not child molesters were brought in -- to exploit the corrupted situation. And some of these places became havens for all sorts of criminal activity, and were raided by the police and so forth. Then a number of these farms were sold, lost, closed down, or simply limping along driven into ill repair. 

For example, one devotee wrote to tell me that a lot of important repairs are needed at the ISKCON farm he is on, but hardly no one wants to chip in and put their collective money together into fixing things, since the GBC might kick them out at a moment's notice. So the needed repairs are largely left undone. 

Translation: the GBC wants a sort of third world / run down / mess rather than nicely functioning places, because they can control a run down third world mess. Yet they are not really able to have high amounts of fanatical control over independent minded people in healthy places managed by sophisticated and intelligent people. That has to be discouraged and halted.  

As for some or many of these leader people being actual illuminati, I really doubt that. For example, the November 1977 poison complaint tapes never would have been allowed to survive if these people were really organized illuminati people. They would have destroyed these tapes the instant they were being made. And if someone like me got a hold of these tapes later on by accident, actual illuminati people would not have let me survive to release the tapes. They are not sophisticated enough to be real illuminati. Its more like a dog and pony Circus act gone amok rather than a sophisticated criminal operation. 

And having as one of their "gurus" like for example Hansadutta would not be done by a sophisticated group. He was drinking alcohol, having illicit sex with more than a few women according to reports, was arrested for having a machine gun in his car, was arrested for shooting at occupied buildings, was arrested for drunk and disorderly after getting off an airplane, had his temple raided by the police, had all sorts of his followers arrested for all sorts of things and so on and so forth. 

No professional illuminati people would behave like this because it would be too obvious, they are not gurus. The illuminati would have been able to put a much more professional guru show together, this was like the worst case amateur hour guru show ever produced. Then Jayatirtha was doing so many crazy things, Harikesha was doing crazy things, and so on and so forth. Illuminati people are professionals, and these people are not. Having said that, they are still dangerous people and they are organized at least to some extent.

Anyway, lets try to build what Srila Prabhupada wanted. And if these GBC gurus are not going to cooperate with us to do that, they need to be rejected and we need to move forward independently and follow the orders of the acharya. ys pd]

Anantarya Peetam on Women Gurus (The Hindu newspaper)

ISKCON’s proposal on women acharyas opposed (The Hindu newspaper)

Sri Vaishnava acharyas express concern over the organisation going against established doctrines.

The proposal of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) to allow women to become acharyas within its society has been opposed by leading Sri Vaishnava acharyas in the country.

The week-long meeting of the Governing Body Commission (GBC), ISKCON’s highest decision making body headquartered at Mayapura, began here on Friday, where the proposal is among the subjects for discussion.

In a letter written to the GBC, which met at Mayapura for the annual general meeting in March 2019, M.A. Lakshmi Thathachar, presiding acharya of Anantarya Peetam in Melkote (Karnataka), expressed concern over the reputed organisation going against the ‘sishtachara’ (established doctrines) vis-a-vis ‘mantropadesa’ and initiation by women preceptors.

“If an internationally famous organisation like ISKCON is successful in going against the Sishtachara, probably the other schools of Vedanta like Ramanuja, Vallabha, Nimbarka may follow suit, which is not desirable,” he opined.

Muralidhara Bhattar, chief priest of Sri Ranganatha Swamy temple in Srirangam (Tamil Nadu), opined in a separate letter to the GBC in March that the proposal to introduce women ‘diksa guru’ system would set a bad example to followers of Sanatana Dharma and would have wider ramifications for other schools of thought. In the letter mailed by him to the GBC, a copy of which is available with The Hindu, he called such decisions as ‘asastriyam’ (unscientific) and against proper ‘acharam and anushtanam’ (rituals and norms).

Lakshmi kumara Thatachariyar, renowned scholar in Ramanuja philosophy and professor at Raja Sanskrit College, Kumbakonam (Tamil Nadu), felt that ISKCON’s decision should not influence and mislead other dharmas.

“After the Sabarimala incident, it is already a push from outside factors and ISKCON doing so will give strength to ‘adharmic parties’ of modern world to push ‘adharma’ in our sampradaya,” he opined in a letter.

‘Think twice’

“The decision is not in tune with ISKCON’s rigorous adherence to scriptures,” Krishna Kirti Dasa (formerly Chris Shannon), a member of ISKCON order associated with the panel of sastric and scientific researchers, told the media here on Friday.

He cautioned the highest decision making body to think twice before voting on this proposal.

[PADA: Yet rather oddly, ISKCON leader Jayadvaita admits that the ISKCON "acharyas" are many times falling into illicit sex with men, women and children -- and apparently almost no one from these "India scholar groups" seems to find that so-called guru sampradaya "against shastra." Its a good thing we were born as Christians, because at least we knew all along that deviants cannot be viewed as the successors to God. And we still know that now because Srila Prabhupada taught the same idea. Srila Prabhupada says when a guru has sex with a female follower, its the same as a father having sex with his daughter. Thus, from that point of view all of these sexual predator gurus are like pedophiles.  

The Christians do not accept that deviants are the successors to God, only a qualified person such as Jesus can be. And yes, Srila Prabhupada teaches the same thing, there is no such thing as a deviant being the successor to God. 

I find it simply astonishing that ISKCON can promote their illicit sex with men, women and children guru parampara, a chain of sometimes the most odious deviants posing as God's successors, and we hardly hear a peep of complaint from the "scholars" over there. And worse, in India masses of people come to hear from the leaders of the molester's acharya program like Radhanath, Bhakti vikas swami, Bhakti Caru swami et al., all of whom are voted into the sex with taxi driver's acharya sampradaya. And that makes them -- bona fide? 

Illicit sex with men, women and children "male body" gurus is not the problem, making women into gurus is the problem? Maybe these scholars should listen to women, like maybe their own mothers, and make them the guru of these scholars. Their mothers are women who would probably not endorse an illicit sex with men, women and children guru parampara? Of course even my 85 year old cat lady grandma neighbor would never endorse an illicit sex with men, women and children guru parampara. She knows better, and maybe she should be made their guru?

How many regular people walking down the street in the USA think an "illicit sex with men, women and children -- and taxi drivers" "chain of gurus from God" is bona fide? OK about zero, they are more advanced than a lot of these alleged scholars. Yep, thanks to you Lord Jesus that you gave us the idea that the successor to God has to be as pure as God, you saved us from the hands of some of these self-annointed "scholars." 

Why don't these "scholars" simply agree with PADA, there is no such thing as a debauchee filled guru parampara, with or without voted in "women co-gurus." Nor can a debauchee laden guru parampara vote for any acharyas, male or female is not the real root problem. On the other hand, many ISKCON women mothers did speak out about the "molesting of children issue" and they were often as not -- suppressed if not booted out of the society. Maybe we should find some of these exiled women and make them the new ISKCON co-leaders and maybe get some moral sense brought back into this GBC leadership sabha? ys pd]

Give Up Nonsense Idea of Being Master (SP VIDEO)

Learning from ISKCON’s Failures Chand Prasad, Ph.D.

Learning from ISKCON’s Failures

Chand Prasad, Ph.D.

ISKCON has failed as an authorized spiritual movement, though not as an organization. Devotees that contributed to the early growth of the mission were largely driven out of their temple residences, as they could no longer live in “ashrams” dominated by corrupt leaders that deviated from Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. Rates of attrition exceeded recruitment of new devotees, leading to a period of prolonged decline but not extinction. 

Despite internal power struggles, the organization maintained a management structure and retained some of its members, allowing continued survival. In response to deteriorating numbers and the loss of revenues from selling books and other items, ISKCON leaders executed a strategic shift [deviation] in favor of closer integration with Indian communities. Consequently, ISKCON has entered a relatively new era of expansion, financed by the generous support of local Hindu congregations.

ISKCON could have drawn Indian support while maintaining an exclusive focus on Krishna Consciousness. Whenever Srila Prabhupada enters a particular region / country / city, the preaching program is always Krishna-centered, based on chanting, holding class on the shastras, and serving prasadam. Srila Prabhupada’s nonsectarian teachings and methodology have proven to be effective, regardless of ethnicity, nationality, or race. 

Commitment to His principles would undoubtedly have attracted Indian communities to Lord Chaitanya’s mission. But unfortunately the organization continued to move away from Srila Prabhupada’s principles, a trend that was already in force long before the Indian influx. The presence of Hindus, or white hippies for that matter, is not the actual problem. Indian donations did not “spoil ISKCON in the West.” The problem is that ISKCON did not possess strength and commitment — the organization has been weak and compromising decades before the South Asian invasion.

Although ISKCON may be on firmer financial footing, it is not clear that this opportunity will be used to preach purely by returning to Srila Prabhupada. It is more likely that the organization will move in the opposite direction. One deviation begets another deviation, and then another. In this way, infractions are compounded and sins are multiplied. 

ISKCON is obtaining some opulence, which is reinforcing the preexisting disease of disrespect for the true Guru. Ultimately, the disease will prove fatal. “If a devotee becomes absorbed in material opulence, he will neglect to respect his spiritual master, lose all opulence, and will be conquered by the demons.” This does not require that the organization will cease to exist altogether, rather it will simply become a more effective tool that the demons have at their disposal.

In sharp contrast to ISKCON’s downward spiritual spiral, it is inspiring to learn of instances where devotees are utilizing their homes as temples, without being distracted by church politics. These devotees are advancing in Krishna Consciousness, realizing that they can associate with Srila Prabhupada through his books. Although these devotees are employed at conventional jobs outside of ISKCON, they maintain their practices of reading Srila Prabhupada's books, chanting, and offering their food to the Supreme Lord Krishna. Even in the face of adversity, they attempt to improve the consciousness with which they work.

Srila Prabhupada is not dead. Through His writings, He is continuing to give us everything we need to go back to Godhead. We need not risk our spiritual life by depending on misguided institutions or organizations. We have the opportunity to associate with a pure devotee because we have complete access to Srila Prabhupada through his books. We can have firm faith in Srila Prabhupada’s ability to create pure devotees. 

Since we can become Krishna Consciousness without joining an organization or living in a temple, it is not necessary to become entangled in futile efforts to reform or purify ISKCON. If a house is severely damaged, then it is not wise to waste time and energy attempting to repair it.

Any fool can build a commercially viable material enterprise, exploiting the tax exempt status of a religious institution and taking money from Hindus while giving nothing of any real value. ISKCON leaders have manufactured a false measure of success, arguing that their temple services are well-attended in some areas. For instance in Ohio and Catonsville, Maryland, larger ashrams are necessary to accommodate a growing number of visitors. 

However, this growth has been achieved at the cost of compromising Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. Prabhupadanugas have not created centralized power structures and hierarchies because they reject the concocted criteria of success that motivates ISKCON. Instead, they have carried out a valuable service by cataloging and publicizing ISKCON’s oftentimes criminal deviations, which arise from the original sin of rejecting Srila Prabhupada.

Herein lies an important word of caution——the true followers of Srila Prabhupada need not be impatient to emulate the so-called success of ISKCON or adopt their objectives. It is understandable that there is a desire for organization and leadership. However, it is extremely important to learn from ISKCON’s failures. Indeed, ISKCON is basically a case study of the Iron Law of Oligarchy, articulated by Robert Michels. 

Organizations must create bureaucracy in order to maintain efficiency as it expands. Every group contains individuals that are more committed, motivated, and skilled, both technically and / or politically. This “inner circle” functions as paid administrators, executives, spokespersons or political strategists for the organization. Centralization inevitably occurs. A relatively small number of individuals become highly influential.

The objective of this ruling class is to preserve and increase their power by controlling bureaucratic procedures and decision-making processes. It is unlikely that the rank and file members of the organization would have the ability to hold their leaders accountable—the ruling class controls access to information while creating an incentive structure aimed at rewarding loyalty. In fact to obtain accountability, members would be obligated to appeal to a judicial and prosecutorial system that is external to the organization.

Moreover, it is unlikely that members would even be aware that the inner circle is abusive of its power. Charismatic leaders are often skilled at uprooting their followers’ sense of right and wrong to create a compliant set of disciples, while creating a group mind within their organization. Groups are capable of rationalizing far more heinous crimes than any single individual, were he in a state of isolation. 

The behavior of the crowd is emotionally determined, not logically or philosophically determined, allowing a leader such as Bhaktipada to convince his followers that even the most improbable statements are true, or that the most egregious deviations from Srila Prabhupada’s principles are bona fide.

Although ISKCON was not organized as a democratic entity, it is my understanding that ISKCON was intended to be decentralized with local temples wielding considerable autonomy. And strictly speaking, the words “decentralized” and “democratic” are not interchangeable. Nevertheless, the factors that drive an initially democratic organization towards oligarchy are the same factors that transform an initially decentralized organization into a concentrated power structure dominated by a ruling class that becomes increasingly corrupt.

Although Srila Prabhupada’s true devotees are scattered across the planet, they need not be isolated from one another—physical separation does not preclude communication. Prabhupadanugas must often live and work outside of ISKCON. Occupation and livelihood influence a person’s place of residence, and consequently devotees are living apart from each other, tethered to their respective jobs and tied down to their various locations. 

And yet despite the geographic separation, there is clearly a movement toward increased communication among current and aspiring Prabhupada disciples, reflected in the growth of devotee blogs and websites. I am convinced that this form of association will ultimately lead to more coordinated preaching efforts and the emergence of leaders, within a framework of a decentralized organization. So the organizational foundations are already manifesting.


[PADA: Good framework for moving forward!

We found that some "Christian Church Group" has been adding PADA news items onto their Web Site. Pretty much, the same problems we have are universal in many other religions? Anyway, going back to the original founding of the Christian movement, it was largely based on small grass roots operations, often conducted clandestine manner in people's homes or anonymous meeting places, then gradually forming into larger groups where formal programs could be organized. 

Importantly, the Jesus worship model empowers all its members to "witness on behalf of Jesus," which makes them have an army of preaching agents. And that was the model Srila Prabhupada wanted for his mission. 

And that seems to be the direction the Prabhupadanuga process is going at present. The decentralized model is best in any case, because it makes a smaller target for big lawsuits and other problems that a big institution can face. And the decentralized model means one or a few individuals will not gain too much power and influence, making a dangerous potential problem if these individuals deviate or fall away. 

And moreover, we believe this was the model that Srila Prabhupada himself wanted and ordered, i.e. small scale operations uniting together only for the purpose of combined book printing and other such endeavors. And this model will come back to life, especially as the flim-flam GBC program falls apart more and more. 

Meanwhile, yet another devotee said that at his temple there is a very highly strung KGB secret police "everyone has to beware of snitches" type mood. Anyone who has doubts shall be subject to a witch hunt and routed out. Problem being, too many of the citizens have doubts, which is why they are trying to restrict people from going on the internet and so forth. That only works for the short term. This devotee reports that the whole atmosphere there has become very toxic and "there cannot be any bliss" when all this stress and repression is going on, which sort of defeats the whole idea of the religion. 

OK its a cult meltdown in slow motion.

Anway, lets get back to the basics. We need small grass roots operations, whether individual families or small groups, and lets rebuild things gradually. This is already sort of taking place by default. We are getting more and more people on board with the idea they should just take shelter of the acharya Srila Prabhupada and jettison the excess baggage of worship of deviants, politicians, embezzlers and brahmana bandhu false brahmanas. There is still residual fear of the regime, which is why some folks are reluctant to use their names and all that, but times are changing and more and more people are coming forward to complain that the emperor has no clothes. 

Yep, Srila Prabhupada wanted a loose knit confederation of smaller and more importantly self-reliant independent programs, and the sooner we get back on track with that idea, the more his idea will be realized. ys pd]

The glories of Pasankusa Ekadasi which occurs during the waxing moon in the month of September / October is described in Brahma vaivartha Purana in the conversation between Lord Krishna and Maharaj Yudhisthira.

Maharaj Yudhisthira said, O Madhusudan what is the name of the Ekadasi that occurs during the waxing moon in the month of September / October. Please be kind and explain this to me .

Lord Krishna replied, O best of the Kings! The name of this Ekadasi is Pasankusa Ekadasi. Now please hear from me the glories of this Ekadasi which destroys all ones sins. Some people also call this Ekadasi Papankusa Ekadasi. One should specially worship lord Padmanabha on the day of this Ekadasi. 

This Ekadasi awards a person the heavenly pleasures liberation and one's desired results. Just by chanting the holy names of Lord Vishnu one can attain all the piety of visiting all the holy places on the earth. If a conditioned soul in spite of indulging in various sinful activities due to illusion takes shelter and offers obeisances at the lotus feet of Lord Hari, who is expert in delivering the fallen souls, then such a person does not have to go to hell.

Those pseudo Vaishnavas who criticise Lord Shiva and those pseudo Saivaites who criticise lord Vishnu are both undoubtedly going to hell. This ekadasi helps remove that offense. The result one obtains by performing one thousand horse sacrifices or by performing one hundred Rajasuya sacrifices can not be equal to the one sixteenth portion of piety one obtains by following this Ekadasi. There is no piety in this world which is equal to the piety earned by observing the Ekadasi. 

Therefore there is no other day as sanctified as this day of Ekadasi which is very dear to Lord Padmanabha. O King! As soon as a person fails to observe Ekadasi the sins begin to reside in his body. This Ekadasi awards its follower the heavenly pleasure, liberation, freedom from deceased condition, beautiful women, wealth and food grains. O maintainer of the earth! If one observe this Ekadasi and remains awake on that night easily goes to the abode of Lord Vishnu.

Lord Krishna continued O best of the Kings! By observing the vow of this Ekadasi one can deliver ten generations from his mothers family, ten generations from his fathers family and ten generations from his wife's family. If a person observes this Ekadasi either in his childhood or youth hood or in his old age he does not suffer the miseries of the material existence. One who strictly observes this Pasankusa or Papankusa Ekadasi then all his sinful reactions are eradicated and at the end of his life he returns to the abode of Lord Vishnu. 

If a person gives away gold, sesame seeds, land, cow, food grains, water, umbrellas or shoes in charity then such a person does not have to go to the abode of Yamaraj. Any one who spends his day without engaging in pious activities is like a dead man although he is breathing. His breathing is compared to the bellows of the blacksmith.

O best of the Kings! A person who digs well and lakes for the benefit of others, donates land and houses and perform other pious activities such as performing sacrifices is not subjected to the punishment of Yamaraja. As a result of piety only people live long lives, become rich, take birth in high class families and become diseaseless. The purport is that the direct result of observing Ekadasi is to attain devotional service to Krishna and the indirect result is to attain the temporary material benefits.

RE: Dayalu Nitai and HKC Jaipur (update)

Thanks for your question about PADA vs Dayalu Nitai's program and your doubts in visiting their program on your upcoming tour of Jaipur. 

Basically, they are a lot like ISKCON. They have some nice souls in their program, however they also have some in their group who have argued vociferously with me -- that we are wrong to try to stop criminal child abuse, and subsequent suicides of victims. 

Its amazing to me that HKC folks or anyone else would defend criminal child abuse direct or de facto -- by their trying to help the criminals with opposing us -- knowing full well various victims of their process are rejecting the Krishna religion -- if not commiting suicide. Never mind Krishna devotees should be first to object to such odious criminal behaviors, because even the village drunk does not support such a process and he would join PADA with our complaints.

The HKC folks complain that some ex-children are speaking ill of the Krishna religion, and no wonder, when these guys are creating the impression that criminal child abuse needs to continue without "devotees" helping contain it. They are creating the impression that child abuse should be enabled and allowed to continue, and this is part of the teachings of Krishna. It is not. 

In sum, it is the HKC folks who are making these children have a bad impression of the religion. Stopping criminal child abuse should -- not be done, or else you will be attacked by HKC and associates? Then they wonder why children are getting a bad impression of the religion? Defending criminal child abuse is going to give a good impression of the religion? To whom, maybe Satan?

The HKC big associates even made a web site complaining that we are wrong to stop criminal child abuse and suicides of victims. Needless to say, this has made them highly unpopular with a good number of child abuse victims. Various people write to ask me, "Why are HKC folks still defending the criminal child abuse program -- and they object to your halting it"? And one of these victims told me that the HKC Jaipur is even worse than the GBC because they are defending the GBC's pedophile guru programs by opposing PADA, in the name of a "reform." 

Anyway, some of the associates of members of this program like Kamadeva and Bhakta Peter have told me they agree with PADA, that criminal child abuse has to be halted, its just a few of their inner core fanatics who won't issue a statement declaring that PADA is correct, criminal child abuse has to be halted forthwith. For his part Dayalu writes to say PADA is a liar, which is how these defenders of child abuse ilk have created their whole child abuse process all along. We say there is molesting, they say we are liars, and they thus enable and perpetuate these crimes thereby. Its amazing that by calling us liars these ilk folks created thousands of abuse victims, and they are -- proud they are doing that? 

And so they should simply make a written position paper clarification, they and anyone else have been making a big mistake vociferously defending the enforced cult ritualistic worship of homosexual pedophile messiah's regime -- by telling me I should allow hundreds of children to remain in that odious cult and have children worship deviants if not pedophiles as their acharyas, and have some of the victims of that process committing suicide. 

Why do they want little children to remain in the grips of a criminal child abuse process? Of course there are a lot of other "devotees" who sweep this or other criminal behaviors under the carpet, and that is why the religion has a bad name, these criminal ilk people have been taking it over and making criminal behavior the accepted norm. And this explains why the HKC Jaipur promotes Bhakta das to us, he is himself a criminal and a defender of Radhanath and the criminal regime.

Some of their people have tried to tell me "many other Prabhupadanugas agree with HKC" ---umm, names please? Who are these "many" people? They never give me a list of names of these so-called many people? Nor can we think of any "numbers of people" who agree that its fine to vociferously object to stopping mass criminal child abuse programs. OK its another bluff from these folks, there are not "a lot of people" who agree that criminal child abuse should be allowed to continue unchecked. Anyway, in a nutshell, I don't think their program is bona fide, they are compromised. ys pd    (

Why I Am Not A Member of ISKCON

Jai Sri Krsna Caitanya, Hare Krsna, Hare Rama, Radhe Syama
Please accept my most sincere obeisances. All glories to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Goswami Prabupada.
I would just like to make it clear to everyone that I am not apart of any religious organization, nor do I have any affiliation with ISKCON nor do I recommend regular attendance of any ISKCON programs if any at all.
There are beautiful people who blindly follow and serve at the various ISKCON temples and my heart go's out to them, as they are sincere souls endeavoring for spiritual life, and by coming into contact with them it may appear that ISKCON is very nice. But it is only those sincere devotees that are nice, but unfortunately they have submitted to a false authority and are promoting these conditioned souls as Gurus who cannot even save themselves from repeated birth and death what to speak of others ?
The hard truth is that ISKCON has been corrupted ever since the departure of Srila Prabupada. This history they have swept under the mat, and they still continue to deviate up until this day, but just in a more subtle manner.
There's tons of hard evidence that I can provide to back up my statements. Such as:
- The history of ISKCON (Fall down of the Gurus),
- Child abuse
- Murder and violence
- The unauthorized book changes
- Having no regard to the rules and regulations applied to sannyasi's
- Making up quotes which contradict vedic teachings
- Krsna West
- etc, etc ,etc
Please see how cleverly the book changes push their fake guru's agendas:
CC Madhya 19.157 Purport:
Original 1975 Edition, By Srila Prabupada:
"“If one thinks that there are many pseudo devotees or nondevotees in the Kṛṣṇa Consciousness Society, one can keep direct company with the spiritual master, and if there is any doubt, one should consult the spiritual master.” "
Unauthorized Edit:
"Even if one thinks that there are many pseudo devotees or nondevotees in the Kṛṣṇa Consciousness Society, still one should stick to the Society"
Here are resources to find out more about the deviations of ISKCON:
- The unauthorized book changes:
- Jayaidvatas envy towards Srila Prabupada
- The message and murder of Aindra Prabu
- The cost of silence (ISKCON Child Abuse):
- The cost of silence 2 (ISKCON Child Abuse):
- Check out a book called: "The Final Order" for detailed information of the GBC's own philosophical concoctions:
Please note that I am not perfect nor am I better than any fake gurus, non devotees and pseudo devotees. In fact I am far worse than all of them. But I do hope that this can shed some light to some sincere seekers of the truth. As it is only through the truth that our real spiritual path's can unfold.
Hare Krsna,
Your Servant,
