Vrndavana Sadhus Poisoned, Intentional or Accident?





Vrindavan, 2017.06.22 (VT): A group of sadhus have fallen seriously ill after taking prasad in their own ashram.

Twelve sadhus of the Varah Adyapeeth ashram at Vrindavan’s Varah Ghat fell unconscious after eating their midday meal. The mahant of the ashram, Shri Rampravesh Dasji is amongst the victims, along with Brahmachari Das, Dharmesh Das, Khadeshwar Das, Ramveer Das, Ganga Das, Vinay Das, Angad Das and others.

The sadhus fell unconscious immediately after eating. Their unconscious bodies were scattered about the ashram while the mahant lost consciousness in the verandah.

Due to the heat, there is very little movement in Vrindavan after lunch time. Because no one in the ashram remained conscious, it was only when Shri Vaidyaram Sevakdas ji of Malook Peeth came to visit in the evening, that the shocking scene was discovered.
Upon receiving news of the incident, Shri Rasiya Baba, Rasraj Maharaj and other mahatmas residing in the neighborhood rushed to the scene. They helped get the affected sants to Ramkrishna Mission Hospital.

Amongst those affected, Shri Rampraveshdasji, Brahmachari Das and Dharmesh Das are in critical condition and have been placed in ICU.

It is feared that someone may have poisoned the prasad purposefully.

Yogini Ekadasi 20th June 2017



Yogini Ekadasi

Yudhisthira Maharaj said, "Oh Supreme Lord, I have heard the glories of the Nirjala Ekadasi, which occurs during the light fortnight of the month of Jyeshtha (May - June).

Now I wish to hear from You about the suddha Ekadasi that occurs during the dark fortnight of the month of Ashadha (June - July). Kindly describe to me all about it in detail, Oh killer of the Madhu demon (Madhusudana)."

The Supreme Lord, Sri Krishna, then replied, "Oh king, I shall indeed tell you about the best of all fasting days, the Ekadasi that comes during the dark part of the month of Ashadha. Famous as Yogini Ekadasi, it removes all kinds of sinful reactions and awards supreme liberation.

"Oh best of kings, this Ekadasi delivers people who are drowning in the vast ocean of material existence and transports them to the shore of the spiritual world. In all the three worlds, it is the chief of all sacred fasting days.
I shall now reveal this truth to you by narrating a history recounted in the Puranas.

"The king of Alakapuri - Kuvera, the treasurer of the devas (demigods) - was a steadfast devotee of lord Shiva. He employed a servant named Hemamali as his personal gardener. Hemamali, a Yaksha like Kuvera, was very lustfully attracted to his gorgeous wife, Swarupavatii, who had large, enchanting eyes.

"Hemamali's daily duty was to visit Manasarovara Lake and bring back flowers for his master, Kuvera, with which he would use them in the puja offerings to lord Shiva. One day, after picking the flowers, Hemamali went to his wife instead of returning directly to his master and fulfilling his duty by bringing the flowers for the puja.

Absorbed in loving affairs of a bodily nature with his wife, he forgot to return to the abode of Kuvera. "Oh king, while Hemamali was enjoying with his wife, Kuvera had begun the worship of lord Shiva as normal in his palace and soon discovered that there were no flowers ready to be offered in the midday puja.
The lack of such an important item (upachara) angered the great Koshad-yaksha (treasurer of the devas) even more, and he asked a Yaksha messenger, 'Why has dirty-hearted Hemamali not come with the daily offering of flowers?
Go find out the exact reason and report back to me in person with your findings.'

The Yaksha returned and told Kuvera, 'Oh dear lord, Hemamali has become lost in freely enjoying coitus with his wife.' "Kuvera became extremely angry when he heard this and at once summoned lowly Hemamali before him.

Knowing that he had been remiss and dawdling in his duty and exposed as meditating on his wife's body, Hemamali approached his master in great fear.
The gardener first paid his obeisances and then stood before his lord, whose eyes had become red with anger and whose lips trembled in rage.

So enraged, Kuvera cried out to Hemamali, 'Oh you sinful rascal! Oh destroyer of religious principles! You are a walking offense to the devas! I therefore curse you to suffer from white leprosy and to become separated from your beloved wife! Only great suffering is deservedly yours!

Oh lowborn fool, leave this place immediately and betake yourself to the lower planets to suffer!' "And so Hemamali fell at once from grace in Alakapuri and became ill with the terrible affliction of white leprosy. He awoke in a dense and fearful forest, where there was nothing to eat or drink. Thus he passed his days in misery, unable to sleep at night due to pain.

He suffered in both winter and summer season, but because he continued to worship lord Shiva himself with faith, his consciousness remained purely fixed and steady. Although implicated by great sin and its attendant reactions, he remembered his past life because of his piety.

"After wandering for some time here and there, over mountains and across plains, Hemamali eventually came upon the vast expanse of the Himalayan mountain ranges. There he had the wonderful good fortune to come in contact with the great saintly soul Markandeya Rishi, the best of ascetics, whose duration of life it is said, extends to seven of the days of Brahma.

"Markandeya Rishi was seated peacefully at his Ashrama, looking as effulgent as a second Brahma. Hemamali, feeling very sinful, stood at a distance from the magnificent sage and offered his humble obeisances and choice prayers.
Always interested in the welfare of others, Markandeya Rishi saw the leper and called him near, "Oh you, what sort of sinful deeds have you done to earn this dreadful affliction?'

"Hearing this, Hemamali painfully and ashamed replied, 'Dear sir, I am a Yaksha servant of lord Kuvera, and my name is Hemamali. It was my daily service to pick the flowers from the Manasarovara lake for my master's worship of lord Shiva, but one day I was negligent and was late in returning with the offering because I had become overwhelmed with lusty passion for enjoying bodily pleasures with my wife.

When my master discovered why I was late, he cursed me in great anger to be as I am before you. Thus I am now bereft of my home, my wife, and my service. But fortunately I have come upon you, and now I hope to receive from you an auspicious benediction, for I know that devotees such as you are as merciful as the Supreme Lord (Bhakta Vatsala) and always carry the interest of others uppermost in their hearts. That is their - your nature. Oh best of sages, please help me!'

"Softhearted Markandeya Rishi replied, 'Because you have told me the truth, I shall tell you about a fast day that will benefit you greatly. If you fast on the Ekadasi that comes during the dark fortnight of the month of Ashadha, you will surely be freed of this terrible curse.'

Hemamali fell to the ground in complete gratitude and offered him his humble obeisances again and again. But Markandeya Rishi stood there and lifted poor Hemamali to his feet, filling him with inexpressible happiness.

"Thus, as the sage had instructed him, Hemamali dutifully observed the Ekadasi fast, and by its influence he again became a handsome Yaksha. Then he returned home, where he lived very happily with his wife."

Lord Sri Krishna concluded, "So, you can readily see, Oh Yudhishthira that fasting on Yogini Ekadasi is very powerful and auspicious. Whatever merit one obtains by feeding eighty-eight thousand brahmins is also obtained simply by observing a strict fast on Yogini Ekadasi. For one who fasts on this sacred Ekadasi, she (Ekadasi Devi), destroys heaps of past sinful reactions and makes him most pious. 

Oh King, thus I have explained to you the purity of Yogini Ekadasi."

Thus ends the narration of the glories of Ashadha-krishna Ekadasii, or Yogini Ekadasi, from the Brahma-vaivarta Purana.

Jayapataka Health Update (Video)

video

Jaypataka swami -- guru of ISKCON Mayapura

PADA: This is a little amazing to us. ALL of us (neophytes) were warned by Srila Prabhupada and repeatedly, not to take the post of DIKSHA GURU. Why? Because he said it would mean we are ACCEPTING SINS, and this would cause us to GET SICK, FALL DOWN, or both. Yet! So many of our God brothers ran off and thought they were exempt from all these BASIC rules of the Vaishnava religion. They volunteered to become another Jesus-like sin absorbing diksha guru, and they did so left, right and center. 

They thought they could actually take the post of another Jesus, and absorb the sins of thousands of others, and how did you guess, they began immediately to get sick, fall down, and die prematurely. Jayapataka was of course a special circumstance case, he was as fat as a walrus because he was self-evidently eating like one. Meanwhile, the kids in his schools report not getting enough to eat, so he was eating their food, which was meant for his own school children. And so he bloated out into a huge walrus sized shape.


Walrus-PADA.

Then later on, Walrus-pada said he wanted to spend millions of dollars suing the Prabhupada devotees so he could kick them all out, which he did. And so one day he was yelling and screaming in the court about how the worship of Prabhupada is a bogus deviation, and two days after that, he had a massive stroke. He has never recovered from said stroke, and never will. Ever.



How did you guess, some of his followers blamed us for countering his lawsuit and making him angry. Well maybe, but anyone who is angry to see the pure devotee being worshiped has a long history in the Vedas, they get sick, fall down and die, its simple karmic mathematics. And if one takes away food meant to feed little children to stuff into his fat face so he can bloat out to be the largest walrus pada on the planet, well there is karma for that too.

Anyway, this is actually sort of indirect great news for PADA. Jayapataka has become the sort of self-evident poster child for why us NEOPHYTES should not and CAN NOT attempt being diksha gurus, because these neophytes will suffer various malefic effects in this life, and major malefic problems in the next. 

Of course we STILL have some few foolish people remaining, like for example Torben Nielsen, Ajit Krishna, Kim Moller, Hanuman (Croatia) who say -- what is the problem, any Prabhupada disciple can imitate JESUS and take sins. Nope! And then we have people like Bhakti Vikas swami, he actually encourages these people to take sins -- so he can get them to become sick, fall down and die prematurely. Great job! Anyway, here we see what happens when one says he can over-step the orders of his guru, he has to suffer in this life, and suffer way worse in the next. ys pd      


Yes Jayapataka maharaja, you should take more sins, go for it! You will take them with you into your next life ...

Bhakti Vikas Swami needs to be removed (Giribaradhari das)



RE: H.H. Bhakti Vikasa Swami

BY: GIRIBARADHARI DAS (ACBSP)

andham tamah pravisanti
ye 'sambhutim upasate
tato bhuya iva te tamo
ya u sambhutyam ratah
(Sri Isopanishad, verse 12)

Srila Prabhupada has often used the phrase, 'We are at war with Maya'. (Declare war on the illusory energy – Vaniquotes)

There are many instances of heroes in war. Srila Prabhupada tells many stories of the Gurkha warriors. (Soldiers (Conversations) – Vaniquotes) One such instance comes to mind. The story of the Gurkha soldier who was armed with his machete-like Gurkha knife when he was faced with an enemy soldier who had a rifle and attached bayonet. The Gurkha pulled the rifle and bayonet with his left hand into himself and at the same time chopped at his opponent's neck with his right hand, which was wielding his Gurkha knife.

In Mahabharat there are so many examples and instances of heroism and of great warriors. Just as we are familiar with the many ranks in the armed forces, such as private, lieutenant, sergeant, corporal, major, general, and so on, there are so many ranks in the Mahabharata and there are accounts of great warriors; maha-maharathis, ati-maharathis, maharathis, atirathis. (Maharathi (warrior) – Wikipedia)

Srila Prabhupada has said that we are at war with Maya. In war there are also many casualties. Casualties of war. "It is very difficult to conquer over the influence of Maya, but [he] who is firmly fixed up in Krishna Consciousness cannot be a victim of Maya. Anyway, we cannot stop our fighting with Maya, neither we can expect that all our soldiers will remain unhurt. You know Arjuna's son Abhimanya was killed in the battle in which Bhismadeva was a party. Fight Krishna's cause sincerely andyou will be gloried with victory."
(Srila Prabhupada Letter, December 21, 1967)

"They are now feeling the pressure of the opposite party. So... Fight is fight. When there is fight, my Guru Mahārāja used to say, 'Some of our soldiers will die. It doesn't matter.' You don't expect that not a single soldier of your party will not die. No, some of them will die. Still, fight must go on. Fight cannot be stopped. So fight like brave soldiers, Krishna will help you. Don't make any compromise. No truce with these demons. Fight must be. Our fighting weapon is Hare Krishna movement. That's all. Sāṅgopāṅgāstra-pārṣadam (SB 11.5.32). 

Astra. That astra is yajñaiḥ saṅkīrtana, this saṅkīrtana, this astra weapon. They're now afraid of this astra more than atomic weapon. Is it not?"
(Srila Prabhupada Conversation, Bhuvanesvara, February 3, 1977)

So it is to be understood that in the fight against Maya there will be casualties. And so it has been proven. Many came into contact with Srila Prabhupada, took first initiation, took second initiation, took sannyasa, travelled with Srila Prabhupada, managed temples, distributed many books, rendered all kinds of service, were pujaris, book distributors, cooks and so on. But somehow in the war against Maya they became casualties. Maya is strong and will attack one, and sometimes a soldier will surrender to Maya.

[PADA: Correct, just about everyone knew all along that these leaders were falling down left, right and center -- from the 1960s to the end of the 1970s when Srila Prabhupada departed. In fact he suspended sannyasa just before he departed. 

This begs the question, why did so many people assume these falling down characters could pull off the stunt of being "appointed acharyas"? Even Narayan Maharaja said they are all monkeys, at the same time, he said they should be worshiped as acharyas. He did not think his monkey acharya's program would fail? 

Why did hardly no one see the writing on the wall, making a class of falling down people into acharyas would all end up as a catastrophic failure? And why are a few remaining people, like Hanuman dasa Croatia, saying that the leaders who went along with this bogus process like Bhakti Vikas swami -- are foolish acquiescing puppy dogs, simultaneously, they are bona fide? And why would anyone defend keeping BVKS at this point, which is the subject of this article?]  
Many people have suffered in their waging of war against Maya. Many succumbed to the allurements of Maya, were tempted by Maya and left the association of Srila Prabhupada. Some returned to the association of Srila Prabhupada, but many did not. Maya overcame them. The enemy, Maya, is very strong. It is hard fighting against Maya and it takes great will and energy and great determination to have faith in Srila Prabhupada, in Lord Caitanya and in Lord Krsna. 

To wage war against Maya the soldiers and the generals must be qualified. The leaders must be qualified. In order for the society to defend itself against the onslaught of the forces of Maya, the soldiers must have good officers commanding, guiding, demonstrating how and where to wage war. Captains, lieutenants, commanders in chief must be capable in order to demonstrate their prowess and steadfastness in the war against the enemy, Maya.

[PADA: Really good analysis here!]


And then we have the enemy within the gates. The enemy who is in our midst. The enemy who will slit your throat when you are sleeping, the enemy who will stab you in the back, the enemy who will sabotage your assault, the enemy who will give false information, the enemy who will modify the commands, the enemy who will mislead, the enemy who will confuse your mind, the enemy who will weaken your defense, the enemy who will thwart your strategies from within, the enemy in disguise, the enemy who assumes the dress of a sadhu.

It is hard enough fighting against Maya, but when Maya enters one's own camp and creates havoc, it is truly a routing disaster.

When a person first hears about the mission of Srila Prabhupada, first hears about Krsna and is attracted to the Hare Krsna Movement, ISKCON, and then leaves because of a temple president's abuse, or a sankirtan leaders's abuse or a manager's abuse or a teacher's abuse or a sannyasi's abuse, or of someone's abuse from within one's own camp, then that is most unfortunate. There have been many instances of children being abused, women being abused, and men being abused by various so-called leaders. 

And this has left many being traumatized, either physically or emotionally. Or sexually. Many of the abused have been tolerant and determined and stayed on to fight. Many more have not.

It takes so many hours and days and weeks and months and years, of book distribution, of harinam, of preaching to get one person to come and associate with the teachings of Srila Prabhupada. Then, if that person becomes disgusted with, and frustrated by, and horrified by, and has an abhorrence for ISKCON because of abuse, it may take many hundreds or thousands of lifetimes before that person will again be able to turn towards a spiritual path, many lifetimes before again being afforded the opportunity to associate with the teachings of Srila Prabhupada.

[PADA: Amazing, and sad, but very likely true. Human life is itself very rare, how many souls are in other species compared to humans? And then after that, association with a pure devotee is even more rare. And then, if one is pushed out of the pure devotee's lifeboat, he might sink back into the material ocean of birth and death for an extensive period of time before such a rare opportunity arises again.]

And sometimes there are some leaders who have somehow or other become leaders in ISKCON but they have become useless. In the history of ISKCON there have been corrupt leaders, fallen gurus, pedophiles and philanderers.

[PADA: Ouch! Or worse, the other leaders are, at least according to Hanuman dasa Croatia, compliant and compromised puppy dogs who simply follow and support the corruption without discrimination, so they can get the bone of post and position tossed to them by the main corrupt ones. And then as these compliant puppies chew on the bone of position given to them by the corrupt ones, this makes them even more weak and compromised.]

If the leaders, the generals, make mistakes, many people suffer. If the leaders are of poor moral and spiritual fibre, many people suffer. If the leaders cannot tell right from wrong, abuse from non-abuse men, women and children suffer. Many who wish to follow the path of Krsna Consciousness suffer. 

I would therefore ask that H.H. Bhakti Vikasa Swami stand down or be removed from his post. Resign with dignity. Through his recent writings he has truly demonstrated to one and all that he is unfit in every sense of the word to be in a position of leadership. That is patently obvious. He ought step down.

In the war against Maya such persons can certainly serve in the lower ranks, but not in a position of leadership. I hope that these online discussions have led Bhakti Vikasa and those who still follow him to realize that he is not of leadership material, and I would respectfully ask those who associate with him, his friends, his followers, to ask him to step back and recover himself. 

He is a danger to those who are fighting against Maya. He is a liability that ISKCON cannot afford. He must continue in his war against Maya of course, but as a private. Not as a general. It is obvious that he is not fit for such a post. Better he not misguide others and make more casualties.

It takes so much energy and time to encourage a person to take shelter in ISKCON. If a person has a bad experience it may take many millions of births before another opportunity arises for that person to engage in Lord Caitanya's sankirtan movement. People must be enthused by the association of genuine, caring vaishnavas; not pretenders. Bhakti Vikasa, I say to you, "Do you want to help Srila Prabhupada's Mission? Then please don't help. Your help is causing untold ruckus. Please don't help."

Of course, there are others in the hierarchy of the ISKCON management structure in the guise of leaders. It is not only Bhakti Vikasa who is a hindrance to Lord Caitanya's movement. Why are the contributors to Sampradaya Sun taking it upon themselves to point out to one and all, the frailties and dangers to ISKCON of having someone such as Bhakti Vikasa advising people on marriage or women or children? 

In the vernacular one would say, "He hasn't got a clue!" And he is not the only one. Why do we even have an ISKCON GBC? The GBC is a body set up by Srila Prabhupada to see that spiritual standards are maintained within ISKCON. But the GBC are not united. Each one has his own individual interpretation of what the GBC is. Not even the GBC listen to the GBC. So why has this mantle of responsibility fallen upon the various contributors and editors who write for the website of Sampradaya Sun? What are the members of the GBC doing? Why can they not take it upon themselves to speak out?

Just see what is happening all over the world. What has happened to the ISKCON standards? The GBC, the sannyasis, the leaders, the temple presidents. No one seems to see what is going on. However, if Bhakti Vikasa can be humble enough to stand down, reflect upon the teachings of Srila Prabhupada, imbibe the mood of Srila Prabhupada and take it upon himself to speak out, tell the truth, then perhaps we will have a start to a real spiritual movement, the real ISKCON, as Srila Prabhupada envisioned. 

And get rid of all the strange goings on in the various ISKCON centres around the world and focus on the mission of Srila Prabhupada as very clearly detailed in the teachings of Srila Prabhupada. Stand down, Bhakti Vikasa, before your ideas on child abuse and child abusers are passed on to successive generations. For therein lies the danger.

His true and good friends and loyal followers ought lend a guiding hand to Bhakti Vikasa. That would be for the best. Let him write books. Do research. Let him not be in any leadership position. He is obviously not a leader. Not in a practical way. And this is true of many of our so-called leaders. Srila Prabhupada uses the term, "mis leaders". From the submissions of Bhakti Vikasa, it is blatantly obvious that he is indicative of the deep seated problem. The tip of the iceberg, as they say.

Regarding the leaders in ISKCON: well, let's just hope that some persons of high moral and ethical character with a spiritual understanding will become the leaders of ISKCON. Hopefully one day. Krsna and Lord Caitanya and Srila Prabhupada willing.

There is certainly a dearth of that morality and ethics right now, as clearly shown by the position that Bhakti Vikasa has foolishly taken in defending the known ISKCON child abuser, Bhakti Vidya Purna. The ISKCON Child Protection Office has many files on Bhakti Vidya Purna and his treatment of young innocent vaishnavas. (Report on the Bhaktivedanta Gurukula Village)

Bhaktivinoda Thakura describes pseudo-Vaisnavas, "disciples of Kali" – Vaniquotes

Bogus/ cheating

Madhya 1.218 Sri Caitanya-caritamrta

Śrīla Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura says, "chāḍiyā vaiṣṇava sevānistāra pāyeche kebā: unless one serves a Vaiṣṇava, he cannot be delivered. The spiritual master initiates the disciple to deliver him, and if the disciple executes the order of the spiritual master and does not offend other Vaiṣṇavas, his path is clear. Consequently Śrī CaitanyaMahāprabhu requested all the Vaiṣṇavas present to show mercy toward the two brothers, Rūpa and Sanātana, who had just been initiated by the Lord. 

When a Vaiṣṇava sees that another Vaiṣṇava is a recipient of the Lord's mercy, he becomes very happy. Vaiṣṇavas are not envious. If a Vaiṣṇava, by the mercy of the Lord, is empowered by Him to distribute the Lord's holy name all over the world, other Vaiṣṇavas become very joyful-that is, if they are truly Vaiṣṇavas. One who is envious of the success of a Vaiṣṇava is certainly not a Vaiṣṇava himself, but an ordinary mundane man. Envy and jealousy are manifested by mundane people, not by Vaiṣṇavas. 

Why should a Vaiṣṇava be envious of another Vaiṣṇava who is successful in spreading the holy name of the Lord? An actual Vaiṣṇava is very pleased to accept another Vaiṣṇava who is bestowing the Lord's mercy. A mundane person in the dress of a Vaiṣṇava should not be respected but rejected. This is enjoined in the śāstra (upekṣā). The word upekṣā means neglect. One should neglect an envious person. A preacher's duty is to love the Supreme Personality of Godhead, make friendships with Vaiṣṇavas, show mercy to the innocent and reject or neglect those who are envious or jealous. 

There are many jealous people in the dress of Vaiṣṇavas in this Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement, and they should be completely neglected. There is no need to serve a jealous person who is in the dress of a Vaiṣṇava. When Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura says chāḍiyā vaiṣṇava sevā nistāra payeche kebā, he is indicating an actual Vaiṣṇava, not an envious or jealous person in the dress of a Vaiṣṇava.

This behavior is indicative of real Vaiṣṇavas. When they saw that Rūpa and Sanātana were fortunate enough to receive the mercy of the Lord, they were so pleased that they all congratulated the two brothers. A jealous person in the dress of a Vaiṣṇava is not at all happy to see the success of another Vaiṣṇava in receiving the Lord's mercy. Unfortunately in this Age of Kali there are many mundane persons in the dress of Vaiṣṇavas, and Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura has described them as disciples of Kali. He says, kali-celā. 

He indicates that there is another Vaiṣṇava, a pseudo Vaiṣṇava with tilaka on his nose and kaṇṭhī beads around his neck. Such a pseudoVaiṣṇava associates with money and women and is jealous of successful Vaiṣṇavas. Although passing for a Vaiṣṇava, his only business is earning money in the dress of a Vaiṣṇava. Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura therefore says that such a pseudo Vaiṣṇava is not a Vaiṣṇava at all but a disciple of Kali-yuga. 

A disciple of Kali cannot become an ācārya by the decision of some high court. Mundane votes have no jurisdiction to elect a Vaiṣṇavaācārya. A Vaiṣṇava ācārya is self-effulgent, and there is no need for any court judgment. A false ācārya may try to override a Vaiṣṇava by a high-court decision, but Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura says that he is nothing but a disciple of Kali-yuga." Madhya Lila 1.220 Sri Caitanya-caritamrta)

There are many jealous people in the dress of vaishnavas in this Krsna Consciousness Movement.

"There are many jealous people in the dress of Vaisnavas in this Krsna consciousness movement, […] Such a pseudo Vaisnava associates with money and women and is jealous of successful Vaisnavas. Although passing for a Vaisnava, his only business is earning money in the dress of a Vaisnava. Bhaktivinoda Thakura therefore says that such a pseudo Vaisnava is not a Vaisnava at all but a disciple of Kali-yuga."
(Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila, 1:218 and 1:220, purports)

"By a false display of religious sentiments, they present a show of devotional service while indulging in all sorts of immoral activities. In this way they pass as spiritual masters and devotees of God. [...] to mislead the people in general they themselves become so-called acaryas, but do not even follow the principles of the acaryas. These rogues are the most dangerous elements in human society."
(Sri Isopanisad, Mantra 12, purport)

Soldiers (Conversations) - Vaniquotes

Many quotations about waging war on Maya. The crocodile of maya.

Declare war on the illusory energy - Vaniquotes

Sri Isopanishad Purport of verse 12:

"...And the pseudo religionists have neither knowledge nor detachment from material affairs. Most of them want to continue in the golden shackles of material bondage, under the shadow of altruistic and philanthropic activities, and in the name of religious principles, and still pass as spiritual masters as devotees of God. Such violators of religious principles have no respect for the authoritative acryas the holy teachers in the strict disciplic succession; and to mislead the people in general they themselves become so called acaryas without even following the principles of the acaryas.

These rogues in human society are the most dangerous elements and, for want of religious government, they pass on without being punished by the law of the state. They cannot, however, avoid the law of the Supreme who has clearly declared in the Bhagavad gita that these envious demons in the garb of religious propagandists shall be thrown down into the darkest regions of hell. It is confirmed in the Sri Isopanishad that the pseudo religionists are heading towards the most obnoxious place in the universe after finishing with the spiritual mastership business which is simply for the matter of sense gratification."

Hanuman Dasa (Croatia) And His Puppy Dogs Acharyas!

http://krishna1008.blogspot.com/2017/06/hanuman-das-croatia-parampara-from-god.html

http://krishna1008.blogspot.com/2017/06/lets-make-iskcon-great-again-pada-reply.html

Hanuman Dasa (Croatia): Last week, I tried the obtain the "guru (loyalty) form." You see, to become guru in ISKCON, you have to fill up the “guru (loyalty) form,” in which you promise that you will never criticize the GBC or the other “gurus”. In other words you must promise that you will be good guru puppy.



GBC gurus are loyal puppy dogs!

[PADA: Swell! Hanuman says (A) we need to still worship the GBC's gurus, despite (B) they are defective, compromised with corruption, and despite they are puppy dogs! We need to offer bhoga to Hanuman's puppy dog acharyas? Yep, that is what he told me! 

He says we cannot offer bhoga to Prabhupada because that would make Prabhupada "someone like Jesus" and we cannot have that going on! We need to worship foolish puppies instead! And we need to offer our food to foolish puppy dogs, and that will make it prasadam? Where in shastra does it say we should offer bhoga to puppy dogs, and then it becomes prasadam?   

Of course Hanuman is also right on this issue, in order to be a guru in ISKCON, one has to be a loyal puppy dog to the rest of the GBC's guru program, and sign "a legal oath of loyalty." A GBC guru thus really cannot criticize the other "gurus," or he will face censure, suspension, removal and even expulsion. 

And that is why all the corruption goes on, there is no real ability to speak out on the real issues, because everyone has had to sign a legal "loyalty oath" to the rest of the GBC, making criticism not only difficult, but also illegal. So that means the whole group is compromised, hence, loyal puppies to the corrupt system.

Anyway! Hanuman still says we STILL need to worship the GBC's gurus, simultaneously -- they are puppy dogs? WHAT! Hanuman is right on this one point at least, all the GBC gurus are compromised with corruption and that is why they are like foolish puppies who follow a bogus leadership program with no discrimination. A puppy has no brain to discriminate right from wrong, and neither do Hanuman's acharyas.



Hanuman's New Acharya for the Jagat!



The ritviks are bogus, because, they do not worship ignorant, sexual predator, criminal and compromised puppy dogs as their messiahs and acharyas? This is getting ritvik-diculous!

Srila Prabhupada's Poisoning Investigation Update (Timeline)

POISONING TIMELINE

The 2002-2005 hair tests done on GBC-selected and authenticated Srila Prabhupada hair samples by Dr. Steven Morris in Missouri revealed lethal cadmium levels of an average 15.75 ppm, or about 250 times above what the average normal unaffected person in human society has. These tests also tell us much about when Srila Prabhupada was being poisoned at these levels and for how long.

Sample D was cut from Srila Prabhupada’s head in early March 1977, and contains the cadmium present in Srila Prabhupada’s blood from late February 1977. Sample A was cut from Srila Prabhupada’s head in late August 1977, just before going to London from Vrindaban.

And since cadmium’s half-life in the body is about 30 years, about the same levels that were present in August, would also still be present by Srila Prabhupada’s departure date of November 14, 1977. Thus the poisoning that started at least as early as late February 1977, continued at approximately the same lethal levels until November 14, 1977, a period of almost NINE MONTHS. 

An ordinary man surely would have expired much sooner due to such a heavy poisoning by a heavy metal (cadmium) that has no known biological benefit and which is NOT a deliberate ingredient in any medicine, Ayurvedic or allopathic. Srila Prabhupada took no cadmium medicines, as there are none. Even medicines, water, sundries, or whatever that might have been contaminated to some small degree with cadmium, could not have produced even a tiny fraction of the actual levels found in these three hair samples.

Below is a chart which depicts approximations of the poisoning timeline.

Hanuman Das (Croatia) "The Parampara from God is Imperfect"

http://krishna1008.blogspot.com/2017/06/lets-make-iskcon-great-again-pada-reply.html



Hanuman das: The parampara contains voted and "imperfect" people. 
The guru parampara from God is full of defects?

Hanuman Dasa: Well, prabhu, everything is in the Prabhupada's books, we don't need any living representative right, so why are you writing me so many letters? Everything is in the Prabhupada's books, so, by writing me emails, you are just distracting me from reading Srila Prabhupada's books, right?

So, why are you so much concerned about my bhoga and my prasadam, everything I need to know is in the books, so, I'll just read them, and I'll worship Prabhupada and I go back to Godhead, why do I need your emails? Prabhupada is alive, Prabhupada is in his books? So, where is the need for me to communicate with you at all?

[PADA: OK so you once again cannot even answer the first question, who should we offer our bhoga to? Every person in our program knows we have to offer bhoga to Krishna via media the pure devotee Srila Prabhupada, while you cannot even identify "who" we should offer our bhoga to? Of course later you said the GBC's program of training people to be offering their bhoga to various illicit sex deviants and administrative managers is "doing great preaching." Really? 

You also admit you personally worship Sridhara Swami ACBS, and the GBC said his followers should offer bhoga to him and other GBC. Sridhara swami was himself a GBC. Why should we do that? Where in shastra does it say we offer bhoga to the Governing Managers of the Church? I just got this question from a few Russian devotees, where were we told to offer bhoga to the managers of the religion? 

This sounds very silly, you folks are starting a religion where we offer bhoga to -- the Church Council members? Why don't you know we cannot offer bhoga to the Church Council leaders, we have to offer to the acharyas? Wow, even the Christians offer grace to Jesus, you folks say we need to offer grace instead to -- the Church managers? So we should go to a Church, to worship the managers by saying grace to them, and not worship the acharya instead? Bhoga that is offered to conditioned souls and managers NEVER BECOMES PRASADAM.]




I could not figure it out either?

HD: With your emails, you are trying to come between me and Prabhupada, but you don't need to do that, that is against rtvik philosophy. So, just let me read Prabhupada's books, I don't like to talk to you because you are useless. :D :D :D You say that all Prabhupada's disciples from the GBC are useless, even if they opened many temples and distributed many books. 

[PADA: I never said that? I said that the post 1977 GBC established the worship of illicit sex acharyas, and so-called GBC managers, and we need to reject that. And if you think worship of illicit sex is valuable, why are you making your own program to object? Are you saying you are the only person who can object? Are you saying the people who are making the illicit sex pooja are useful, while worship of the pure devotee is useless?]

Well you are useless that much more because you don't have any achievements to show. This voted in gurus made at least something, but you've done nothing, I didn't even hear for you till couple of days back. So you are more useless than any useless iskcon guru, because iskcon gurus are at least doing something.

[PADA: OK so the GBC gurus are establishing the worship of illicit sex acharyas, and that is "valuable preaching"? Where in shastra does it say worship of an illicit sex guru parampara is valuable preaching? Srila Prabhupada says your illicit sex guru paramparas are headed for the most obnoxious regions, what is so valuable about that?] 

So, find somebody will low IQ who will accept you as authority after you explain to him that Prabhupada is only authority :D :D :D I'll rather stick with "imperfect" disciples of Prabhupada who are trying their best to continue the parampara, and your "perfect" nonsense of making Prabhupada into Jesus. :D :D

[PADA: Great, so now you are saying: Srila Prabhupada's books establish that "the parampara from Krishna":

-- Supports your GBC's and their illicit sex with men, women and children guru parampara. Where is this stated in the books?

-- And moreover, because your parampara is establishing the worship of illicit sex acharyas, it is conducting "valuable preaching. Where in shastra does it say worship of illicit sex acharyas is a "valuable" process? 

-- At least the good news is, you admit your guru parampara from Krishna contains "imperfect" people -- which invalidates your entire parampara. As soon as we say some of our parampara is defective, that invalidates the whole program. 

-- Srila Prabhupada says the guru parampara is eternally perfect, and it is not full of defects, and its an offense to say the parampara is faulty and defective from square one. Why don't you ever read the books?

-- Where does Srila Prabhupada say the parampara is imperfect and defective?]


Good luck, and don't write me anymore, I want to read Prabhupada's books and you are constantly coming between me and Prabhupada. :D :D 

ys Hanuman das

======================

PADA: Ok so one of my friends is right, you do not even know who we should offer bhoga to? Nor do you ever explain that? And if you do not name your current guru, then, according to Srila Prabhupada, you are a mayavada. 

He says anyone who does not name the guru is a mayavada. And when you do not name your guru, then you say we need to worship Sridhara Swami, a departed guru? Why should we offer bhoga to Sridhara Swami, when he was Tamal's right hand man, and apart from that, he is departed, so according to you we cannot worship him anyway? 

My friend seems to be correct, you do not even know the process of offering bhoga to Krishna, which has to be offered only to a pure devotee. And you cannot tell us who that is, so everyone in your system is eating bhoga and not prasadam. ys pd

I would like to see all the intelligent faces?

So, Prabhupada said to continue the parampara, but you are not continuing it, rather you are imagining your own process, and somehow you are better then gurus who are voted in, because you are disobeying Prabhupada independently of the GBC :D :D :D

What a joke.

Let me tell you straight away, if I am going to be initiated by an acarya who left this planet, I would like to be initiated by Brahma, since as rtvik, you are in contact with all previous acaryas, can you connect me through with Brahma, I mean, he is the main guy in the universe?

[PADA: Right, we need to offer bhoga to the managers; The parampara is defective; The parampara is full of bogus voting; The parampara contains illicit sex with men, women and children, etc. we got it. Glad you admit that is your program. Saying that God and His parampara are defective is how we all came to this material world in the first place! Sacinandana swami preaches that the guru parampara is voting, its defective etc, and so do you, you are his disciple. ys pd]

ISKCON leaders out of touch with their victims. (BVKS update)

Really, Bhakti Vikasa Swami?

BY: SOME FORMER GURUKULI

Dear Bhakti Vikasa Swami, I have been following your recent writings on the topic of Child Abuse and have come to the point of responding. Witnessing your plight has kindled my sympathy and I am attempting to offer you some help.

I myself am someone who enjoyed the hospitality of both ISKCON flagship Gurukulas in the late 1990s, from the young age of 6 to the ripe age of 12. Should you not be aware, these are the Vrindavana Gurukula and Bhakti Vidya Purna Swami's Mayapura Gurukula.

I am utterly delighted by the fact that child protection, an issue of paramount importance, is being brought to the forefront of discussion in ISKCON. This is of course, due to the efforts of Sri Sanaka Rsi, whom I cannot praise enough. May Srila Prabhupada shower his blessings on this soul.

My Dear Swami, I find your comments on the necessary ways of dealing with children, to say the least, disturbing. However, worry not, for I attribute this not to your lack of empathy towards the dependent, but rather, by and large to your enormous investment and to put it plainly, inexperience or, lacking of a better word, ignorance of the matter at hand.

Under investment herein, I refer to you having given your entire adult life to service of The Movement. Furthermore, to the best of my knowledge you have not had children yourself nor have you been married. While this is a position worthy of utmost respect, which you by all means have from me, it carries with it a handicap when confronting certain practical issues, like the upbringing of children or ways of dealing with women.

You, out of all, are one I need not remind, that unlike your exalted self, the majority of souls go through three asramas preceding the Sannyasa Asrama. Among these, is the Grihastha Asrama. Procreation is allowed, the husband is supposed to support his wife and progeny, which carries with it a cost. His energy is spent on material endeavours, food has to be put on the table, the wife and children require clothes and so on. 

In his old age, the man goes on to the Sannyasa Asrama, now in his twilight, all his effort and remaining energy can be focused on spiritual activities, preaching which includes advising the younger generation on leading a proper life. Our eternal Spiritual Master, Srila Prabhupada went through and experienced every single moment of this, which is why he has utmost authority in giving advice and direction relating to every segment of life. You Dear Swami, on the other hand, to be rather blunt, have none; naught. You have not had a wife; you have not had children, yet you so willingly indulge in giving advice regarding these matters without any specifics.

Please do not misunderstand my words. Your status is in fact very respectable. Remaining a strict renunciate, a Brahmachari, throughout your entire adult life is a very commendable, more so, an amazing achievement, but it does not empower you, nor give you authority for commenting and advising on aspects of household life. Why am I stressing this? Allow me to present a simple thought experiment. Entertain the situation of you being a father and your son being in the Vrindavana Gurukula. Suppose you did not see him for a long time and were visiting him. 

As you walk into the Gurukula you see a crowd around one of the doors, curious you go see what is happening. You see a group of children lined up, with your son standing out of the line in front of the Headmaster, being humiliated with words, and suddenly being given a painful slap. What do you feel dear Swami? Can you put yourself in this situation? You can't. You might object, by convincing yourself that this scenario above was simply hypothetical. It was not; had you been to the Vrindavana Gurukula this was a regular occurrence. Public humiliation and slaps were second nature to Gauri dasa, myself having had first hand experience.

But wait, we have more. What is your stand on young children playing? 

I think I have an answer for you. You might fondly recall your time spent in Bhakti Vidya Purna Swami's Gurukula during the Gaura Purnima festivals. You had a hut for yourself. During the afternoons we young children, aged between 6 and 10 used to play catch and run around. Of course, we could only do this rarely as these activities were frowned upon. Playing the Mridanga and dancing in the Kirtan was our allowed exercise. Do you remember what you used to do Swami? Let me remind you. We got scolded and punished because you would complain about us running around and not doing sattvic activities. 

We were all pushed to show Bhakti Vikasa Swami our best face in fear of committing aparadha. Surely this is laughable, right? A couple of kids getting told not to play during their free time. The point is, that this happening simply shows how little understanding you have of dealing with children. Your perspective might have changed in the last 20 years since this occurrence; if it did, you have my gratitude, whereas if it did not, then please refrain from any further advice regarding children and women and leave it to those who are qualified.

We have now arrived to the gist of the matter. Dear Swami, could you go back in time, to your young, 18 year-old self and remember why you joined Srila Prabhupada's movement? What made you give up the life your parents had lived, the life most of your peers lived, and devote yourself entirely to Krishna Consciousness? There was something missing in your life, a feeling of emptiness, no true purpose. Srila Prabhupada filled in this gap, and you were swept away; a grand sense of having found the ultimate truth dawned upon you and as a conclusion, you devoted your life to him, and later on, to the Movement.

Now put yourself in the boots of someone who had the utmost fortune of being aware, nay being brought up in this amazing environment. Someone who had listened constantly to the Holy Name as a toddler and had the association of devotees ever since the day he can recall memories. His life must be amazing, to say the least, having filled the nagging emptiness at such a young age, correct? Oh but wait, let him go through the Gurukula first.

Now let me share some of my personal experiences. I was enrolled in the Vrindavana Gurukula when I was 6 years old; the perfect age for commencing structured education. One would expect that the teacher in charge of the asrama with the youngest boys would behave as a second mother to the children. Alas, this was not the case. The food we were given was basically uneatable; prepared in the dirtiest kitchen one can imagine, full of insects. 

I would throw up almost every time, and was forced to eat my vomit. 

Leaving the Prasadam hall without a clean plate, whatever it might contain, was considered a crime of the highest order. So there I was almost daily, the last one in the hall, sitting over my plate refusing to eat my vomit. This of course led to malnourishment. The already dire situation was aggravated further. I could not put on my dhoti by myself, and hence every time I went to the toilet I had to ask my asrama teacher to help me. 

Of course, I was not taught to put it on by her, rather scolded, mocked and punished, which lead me to procrastinate my calls of nature to the point of soiling myself, and developing serious digestive problems. Unfortunately this carried on to my early twenties when I could finally get rid of my unconscious fear of toilets.

Talking of fear, it was the prevalent emotion throughout the Gurukula. Did I have the feeling of completeness, leading a life surrounded by Krishna, in the Holy Dhama so dear to him? No, it was constant fear of being punished, being beaten, humiliated, forced to do tasks, all in the name of Krishna. This environment was consciously maintained by the headmaster, Gauri dasa; under the premise of discipline. 

So tell me Swami, what would you associate with Lord Krishna and the holy Dhama, were you brought up as such -- the feelings of completeness, true purpose? Being kicked out of bed at 3 am, then forced to chant the Holy Name; punished if not dancing enthusiastically in Mangala Arati; being forced to eat your vomit; soiling yourself; all this sprinkled with talk of true happiness and the real purpose of life? Sounds like Goloka itself.

I still had it easy. There were Gurukulis who had it a lot worse than me. My father had a higher position in ISKCON at the time, and thus I was not subject to as much abuse as others. Luckily, by the time I arrived at the Mayapura Gurukula, the heavy abuse had cooled down, due to the sanctions in place. In fact, throughout my three-year stay, I remember some of my teachers, who are still there, fondly. But the damage had been done; the Gurukula environment was not for me anymore.

I hope this short reminiscence will naturally lead you to the following train of thoughts. Are you aware of what truly happened to the countless children born into Srila Prabhupada's movement? The souls that wanted Krishna and took birth here? There was something taken away from them. 

That same gift you received from Srila Prabhupada and swept you away; that gift, which made you devote your life to this cause; that gift, which gave true purpose to your life. It was ripped away from them forcefully; stolen from them and shredded to pieces. For many years, the Japa experience of these children was all about being in a drowsy state at 3 in the morning after hardly enough sleep, being shouted at were they not pretending to chant. 

You can imagine the amazing associations this rendered towards Japa. What was your experience when you started chanting the Holy Name? It gave you an intense connection to the Lord due to the blessings of your spiritual master. Now imagine that this got taken away from countless children, by the very people you are defending. These now grown up children are trying to find the purpose in their lives. 

Where should they go for association, to ISKCON? The individuals, the thieves, are still there, in high regard, defended by the likes of you. Why would anyone take shelter of The Movement where these thieves roam freely, those that stole the most precious gift obtainable, and then deny the act, what to speak of apologizing? Of course, you could object by saying that Krishna cannot be taken away from anyone who has experienced His blessings and you are absolutely right. But what have these children experienced? I invite you to read the numerous testimonials available online.

What now dear Swami? 

Are you truly willing to help all these children? I am under the assumption that you are stoking the corporal punishment issue as an attempt to help children in their journey of growing up and becoming responsible, Krishna Conscious adults. Should my hypothesis be correct, allow me to suggest a course of action that might result in a more favourable outcome of your philanthropic endeavours. 

Why not follow the example of Srila Sanatana Goswami, and advise all the documented abusers, including your brother-in-arms, Bhakti Vidya Purna Swami, to seek out every single student that has hard feelings towards them and ask for their forgiveness? If an exalted devotee like Srila Rupa Goswami can be barred from the eternal lila due to him unknowingly offending a person, we can only imagine what these people would have to suffer. 

Why not help them by pioneering this initiative? Encourage them to make a public announcement on all ISKCON forums, that any former student of theirs that was abused by them, be given a personal visit by them, tied with an apology, and ISKCON make a separate fund for their travel expenses.

Unfortunately, all these very serious aparadhas that were committed will not be forgiven unless the offenders themselves ask for apologies. Even being uttama-adhikari, initiating spiritual masters, sum totals of the demigods and personal servants of Srimati Radharani, like yourself and some of your defendants, you are not exempt from this, just as the pastime with Srila Rupa Goswami shows.

You may very well ask, why am I writing this? Do I hold some sort of grudge against anyone? I can warmly assure you, that I do not. As fate would have it, my parents are amazing devotees who experienced the gift just as you did. They did not get contaminated by any sort of investment in the Movement, and left it after they realized the unfortunate state of affairs prevailing. By their purity of heart, they managed to rekindle the fire in me that was meticulously being brought to near extinguishment by the Gurukula experience. I simply want to help all the other Gurukulis who may have it different and are struggling in life.

Swami, are you too far invested in the Movement to make a change? Are you willing to do what is right and help those around you? It is all up to you.

Best of luck to you,

Hare Krishna, 
Some former Gurukuli
