Radhanath Swami's Impersonal Leanings

[PADA: It seems like a lot of people, including the GBC, forget that Radhanatha was Kirtanananda's right hand man when all the crimes were going on at New Vrndavana? And he was a leader of having the Jesus deity program, concocted Western songs, dressing devotees in brown monk robes, making women sannyasas, and so on and so forth? Why is this type of person made -- the biggest leader of ISKCON? ys pd]

Radhanath Swami Shares Teachings of the Mayavadis and Sahajiyas He Associated With

BY: SVATANTRA DASA

"In 1970, at the age of only nineteen, Radhanath Swami left his home in America seeking adventure and spiritual knowledge. After trekking across Europe for months, he reached his long hoped for destination: India. After living there for many years as a Sadhu or wandering monk, he returned to America in order to share the sacred knowledge and wisdom he had learned from the many holy men and women he had met there. He is a disciple of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder Acarya of International Society for Krishna Consciousness."
(From www.ecovillage.org.in)

Radhanath Swami associated with bogus mayavadis and sahajiyas, yet he is going to share their teachings, Prabhupada just being one among many of his teachers.

On the Internet, I just saw someone had posed a platitude attributed to Radhanath Swami, which uses a background picture of the Ganga at Rsikesh as its watermark. In and of itself, that's no problem, but added to all the mixed messages Radhanath Swami tends to communicate (see below), it creates an impression one simply doesn't get from Srila Prabhupada, his books, or his followers.

At www.ecovillage.org.in, one is hard-pressed to find any explicit mention of the five practices Rupa Gosvami lists as the mukhya-angas of bhakti (Deity worship, sankirtana, residence in the dhama, hearing Bhagavatam, and associating with pure devotees)—which Srila Prabhupada also instituted as the daily practices of ISKCON temples for good reasons.

To be sure, the website mentions ISKCON, Krishna, and Srila Prabhupada at least once, but such passing reference hardly balances the much greater emphasis given to yoga, yoga teacher traning, and the two-dozen mundane initiatives and outreach projects that actually form the bulk of the website's core content. It also doesn't appear to mention Lord Caitanya. Neither does it ever explain Srila Prabhupada's teachings in any detail—at all—what to speak of urging viewers to read (or buy) his books.

So the Govardhana Eco-village website's approach rather reminds me of what Sri Govinda dasa did to BTG when he was editor for brief period around 1977--when Srila Prabhupada replaced Sri Govinda because he didn't like the quasi-secular trajectory Sri Govinda was taking ISKCON's "backbone."

Quotes attributed to Radhanatha Swami very often have an unclear referent—especially when talking about "love." We don't always get the understanding Srila Prabhupada most often emphasized--that love is exclusively for Krsna, who is the Supreme Person. So what exactly is "divine love," and who is it ultimately directed to?

Often, Radhanatha Swami quotes don't even clearly address spiritual life at all.
Many of them appeal chiefly to the emotions. Most of them are distinctly impersonal and vague.

Here are several examples of these characteristics (each quoted without its original context) taken from www.radhanathswamiquotes.com:

"God loves each of us whoever we are or are not, whatever we've done or not, nothing can change this ok eternal truth: The Supreme loves us unconditionally and eternally."

"Even our greatest achievements are hollow unless we've achieved a measure of inner satisfaction."

"When spiritual ideals form the foundation of a relationship, the relationship can survive whatever challenges may arise."

"Hope can nourish, sustain, and inspire us to grow even in challenging circumstances."

"Caring for each other with patience, tolerance, and humility is part of what it means to walk a spiritual path." (This one has a picture two people holding hands.)"

"The will to grow despite the heat of adversity is necessary if one wants to thrive."

"Every moment is perfect and sacred, and a divine power has engineered it in some imperceptible way and woven it into our intricate tapestry of life for our spiritual progress."

"Replace behaviors that impede growth with behaviors that nourish it, and the flower of self-realization will bloom." (What specific behaviors does Radhanath Swami have in mind here—or more importantly, what specific behaviors do various readers have in mind?)

"If you really care about somebody, then there is a force beyond our own that can empower us to actually inspire them."

Those who carefully study Srila Prabhupada's books every day and are familiar with his activities, and the policies he established for ISKCON, already understand the significance of this. It seems reasonable to wonder how much of Radhanatha Swami's popularity actually derives from the fact the one can more easily derive whatever one desires to hear from so much of what he says.

Srila Prabhupada wasn't so ambiguous; he made his intended message inescapably clear. For one example, Prabhupada deliberately chose not to name ISKCON the "International Society for God Consciousness" because he wanted to obviate any potential misunderstanding about who God actually is. Thus Srila Prabhupada carefully prevented the kind of misunderstanding that characterizes so much of what is publicized in Radhanatha Swami's name, as seen above. God has a name—Krsna—and Srila Prabhupada attentively insured that everyone knew this.

Comparatively speaking, Srila Prabhupada similarly avoided using the general terms "devotion" and "love." Throughout his books, lectures, letters, and conversations, any mention of "divine love" is by far surpassed by his use of more specific and descriptive phrases like, "pure devotional service to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna;" "transcendental loving service to Lord Krsna;" "surrender to Krsna," "Krsna-prema," and so on. He didn't avoid these explicit terms or refer to the surrendering process merely as "a wisdom tradition," for he was too faithful to both the spirit and example of his own guru, whose unambiguous and unsparing "chopping technique" earned him the moniker, "lion-guru."

Even when Srila Prabhupada necessarily spoke of material life in order to direct his disciples (particularly grhasthas), his books especially endorsed the traditional and standard authorities for such affairs, including Canakya-niti, Hitopadesa, and codes by Yajnavalkya, Patrasara, and of course Manu (e.g., See the purport to Bhagavad-gita 16.7, and many similar references).

Srila Prabhupada also made it clear that real love for anyone in this world extends only from Krsna-prema, as its natural concomitant; he was consistently clear that no love otherwise exists in the material world. His purport to the song, "Gaurangera duti pada" represents this nicely, but other such references are legion.

Far from publicly appreciating (or allowing himself to be identified with) various Indian "gurus" of dubious persuasions, Srila Prabhupada (like his own guru) adamantly distinguished his movement from any scent of nondevotional affiliation—especially any hint of mayavada or impersonalism. Toward this end, he directly instructed his disciples to avoid even bona fide slokas such as "gurur brahma gurur visnuh" and "sri-krsna govinda hare murare," largely because these were commonly sung by impersonalists. Similarly, Srila Prabhupada even changed the Panca-tattva mahamantra from "bhaja sri krsna-caitanya" (which was sung also by sahajiyas and others) to "jaya sri-krsna-caitanya," etc. Like his books, Srila Prabhupada personally always prohibited ISKCON devotees from intimately mixing with such persons.

Hari Sauri (Denis Harrison) Kills and Preserves the Parampara?



Hari Sauri now says we need to preserve the writings of Srila Bhaktivinode Thakura, to save the teachings of the parampara for future generations. Except, Hari Sauri and his book changing termites program are chomping up the books of Srila Prabhupada with tons of unauthorized changes. His program is not even preserving the writings of his own guru. And they are kicking out the book distribution devotees who do not want to promote these termite edited materials.

And Hari Sauri is the number one person who has preserved the worship of his illicit sex GBC's gurus project, and his program claims it is common for acharyas to fall into such illiusions, why preserve their writings if they are subject to maya left, right and center? 

Hari Sauri's program says God's guru parampara successors and acharyas are often: alcoholics, sex predators, drug fiends, machine gun swamis, porno swamis, criminals, chicken salad eaters, orchestrators of murders of vaishnavas; book changers, deviants, rascals, persons who illegally sell Prabhupada's temples and properties; people who orchestrate mass abuse and molesting; people who are watching star wars movies; people who are dating their 13 years old female students, ad infinitum. 

And this is how he has "preserved" the parampara? 

By killing it? Yep, even my trash man is way more spiritually advanced than Hari Sauri's debauchee-fied messiahs program. Hari Sauri has dedicated his life to adding all of the worst behaviors known to man into his alleged God's successor parampara, thus Hari Sauri has made God's successors into the worst examples of debauchees and naradhamas ever seen in any guru parampara in the history of the universe, and that is how he preserves the parampara?       

Hari Sauri wants to preserve his illlicit sex guru parampara, and have us protesters banned, beaten, sued and killed, and that is all he has ever done since 1977. He has thus preserved a nice seat at Yama's court, since no one is allowed to say that the successors to God are degraded debauchees left, right and center, because that is identical to saying God is a degraded debauchee Himself, because the successors are shaksat hari tvena, same as God Himself. 

So Hari Sauri's program says God's successors are deviants because that makes God a deviant. Why does Hari Sauri hate God? And why is he always allowed to preach his program's nonsense ideas, that God's successors are often illicit sex criminal deviants, in ISKCON temples?

India's Motorcycle Temple

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/video/om-bannas-motorcycle-temple-india-175216857.html

[PADA: Warning, graphic car crash scenes. India is suffering from over emphasis on Western technology, a problem that cannot be solved by this motorcycle temple program. Meanwhile a travelling devotee says he keeps seeing more and more demigod's pictures in ISKCON temples, because they are also going in the direction of being another version of various Hindu-ized programs. This is not what will save people either. ys pd]

India World's Top Arms Importer

https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/8b51f91d-d978-3209-a423-30c618c58e79/ss_india-top-arms-importer%2C.html

[PADA: Yep, in India, its common that many temples, sewer systems, water delivery systems, old buses, roads, bridges, trains, polluted rivers, cows eating plastic, and conditions of infrastructure overall, are often falling apart, but there is always plenty of money on hand for buying jet fighters, bombs, missiles, guns, tanks and other useful wartime items. Hmm, and this is what the GBC does, they often let the condition of the temples and devotees deteriorate, but there is always money for lawsuits! That is what Kali Yuga is all about, the leaders will spend money on things that do not benefit the citizens, like arms and endless lawsuits ... ys pd]

Sri Rama Trilogy (Nice Art Here!)

Hare Krishna (?) Scam-Kirtana Expose (Kitv.com)

GBC takes their guru to -- court?

[PADA: Wow! Perhaps the most unpopular person in the universe, Jayadvaita swami the book changer, is now the main hero and "savior" of the Brooklyn temple sale fiasco. So this is amazing, the GBC first appointed Romapada as their guru -- then they found out much later, that the guru does not need to listen to the GBC because the guru is independent of ecclesiastical bodies. 

So now the GBC has had to go to court to get the legal justice system to contain and control their bogus gurus, gurus which they themselves appointed. Doesn't the GBC know, gurus are not controlled by ecclesiastical bodies, or courts, and so on and so forth, and guru is controlled and dictated to -- by God? The guru is getting dictation from God, not Jayadvaita swami? 

Now the GBC is saying they need to use the courts, to check what God is dictating and doing? Why not admit, their gurus are bogus and they are not getting dictation from God? 

Meanwhile, the GBC has launched YET another multi-million dollar legal problem, because their members are being charged with crimes in the Karnataka court, which the GBC will presumably pay possibly millions for their legal defenses. Why is the GBC always figuring out ways to waste millions more money on lawyers, court cases and -- now, taking their own guru to court? 

And the GBC / Rocana / Torben Nielsen crowd are still saying, we simply need to have better rules and regulations for our acharyas to contain and control them, and this will fix things! Fine except, if you have to fix your own acharya with legislation, rules, censure, removal for deviations, and now -- lawsuits -- then he is not an acharya. ys pd]      



GBC "vigorously opposes" the Brooklyn Sale

BY: H.H. JAYADVAITA SWAMI

For immediate release

GBC to NY Attorney General's Office:
The GBC "vigorously opposes" the Brooklyn Sale

On January 3, the GBC Executive Committee notified the New York State Attorney General's office that the GBC "vigorously opposes the [Bharati] Center's petition seeking approval of the Sale" of the Radha­Govinda temple in Brooklyn. The Executive Committee's attorney, Daniel Alcott, wrote to the Attorney General's office on the GBC's behalf.

The GBC's move dramatically boosts the likelihood that the State will disapprove the sale. Without State approval, the sale cannot go through. Mr. Alcott wrote to the AG's office that the GBC is the "governing ecclesiastical body" of ISKCON and the Bharati Center. And: "The ISKCON GBC is convinced that the sale does not promote the purposes of the Center or the interests of its members."

By narrowly focusing on "the purposes of the Center" and "the interests of its members," the GBC prudently offers strong reasons for disallowing the sale, while at the same time affording the prospective Buyer no grounds on which to sue the temple. (Last year in Mayapur, the NY leaders had raised the alarm to the GBC that if the sale were blocked the Buyer could file a multi­million­dollar lawsuit, and so the GBC proceeded with caution.)

Mr. Alcott's letter also asks that the EC be notified if, as expected, the question of whether the State should allow the sale goes to a local Brooklyn court. The letter reserves the right for the GBC to appear, through its EC, in any such proceeding.

Eric Weiss, an attorney representing congregational members opposing the sale, says that the GBC's letter is "a game­changer." Now the State will see a pending sale opposed not only from below by a large segment of the congregation but also from above by the highest body of ISKCON's religious hierarchy. Under the circumstances, the chances seem high that the State will disallow the sale.

Vijaya Ekadasi (Feb 22 USA)



Yudhisthira Maharaj said, “Oh Lord Sri Krishna, O glorious son of Vasudeva, please be merciful to me and describe the Ekadasii that occurs during the dark fortnight of the month of Phalguna (February-March)"

Lord Sri Krishna replied, “Oh Yudhisthira, Oh king of kings, gladly I shall tell you about this great fast, known as Vijaya Ekadasii. Whoever observes it certainly achieves success in this life and the next. All the sins of one who fasts on this Ekadasii and hears its sublime glories are eradicated.

“Narada Muni once asked lord Brahma, who sits on a lotus flower about the Vijaya Ekadasii. Sri Narada said, ‘Oh best of all the demigods, kindly tell me the merit one can achieve by faithfully observing Vijaya Ekadasii.’

“Narada’s great father then replied, ‘My dear son, this oldest of fasting days is pure, and it nullifies all sins. I have never revealed this to anyone until today, but you can understand beyond any doubt that this Ekadasii bestows the result indicated by its name… (Vijaya meaning Victory).

“When Lord Rama was exiled to the forest for fourteen years, He, the goddess Sita, and His divine brother Lakshmana stayed at Panchavati as mendicants. Mother Sita was then kidnapped by the demon Ravana, and Lord Rama seemingly became bewildered like an ordinary man by distress. While searching for His beloved consort, the Lord came upon the dying Jatayu and thereafter killed His enemy Kabandha.. The great devotee-vulture Jatayu returned to Vaikuntha after telling Rama how His dear Sita had been abducted by Ravana.

“ ‘Later, Lord Rama and Sugriva, the king of the monkeys, became friends. Together they amassed a grand army of monkeys and bears and sent HanumAnji his minister to Sri LankA, where he was able to see Janaki (Srimati Sita devi) in an Ashoka grove garden. He delivered Lord Rama’s message and showed the ring proving his authenticity for rendering such great service to the Supreme Lord Sri Rama.“ ‘With the help of Sugriva, Lord Rama proceeded toward Sri Lanka. 

Upon arriving at the shore of the ocean with the army of monkeys, He could understand that the water was uncommonly deep and hostile. Thus He said to Lakshmana, “Oh son of Sumitra, how can We earn enough merit to be able to cross this vast ocean, the unfathomable abode of Varuna deva? I can see no easy way to cross it, teeming as it is with sharks and other ferocious aquatics.”

“ ‘Lakshmana replied, “Oh best of all beings, Oh origin of all the devas, Oh primal personality, the great sage Bakad Albhya lives on an island just four miles from here. Oh Raghava, he has seen many BrahmAs come and go, so aged and wise is he. Let us go to him, take his darshan (audience) and ask him how We can safely reach Our goal.”

“ ‘So Rama and Lakshmana proceeded to the humble Ashrama of the incomparable Bakad Albhya Muni. Approaching him, the two Lords paid Their respectful obeisances to him as if he were a second Vishnu. Bakad Albhya could immediately understand, however, that Sri Rama was actually the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who for His own reasons had appeared on the Earth and was enacting just like a human being.

“ ‘ “Rama, “ said BakadAlbhya, “Oh best of the human beings, why have You come to my lowly abode?”

“ ‘The Lord replied, “Oh great, twice born brahmin, I have come here to the ocean shore with My phalanx of monkey and bear warriors in order to cross the sea and conquer LankA and its demon horde headed by Ravana. Oh greatest of sages, please be merciful unto Me and please tell Me how I can cross this vast ocean. That is why I have come to your Ashrama today.”

“ ‘The sage said, “Oh Lord Sri Rama, I shall tell you of the most exalted of all fasts, observing which You will surely conquer Ravana and be eternally glorified. Kindly now listen with full attention.

“ ‘ “On the day before Ekadasii, fashion a water pot of gold or silver, or even copper. Even clay will do if these metals are unavailable. Fill the pot with pure water and then decorate it nicely with mango leaves. Cover it and place it near a holy altar upon a mound of seven grains (the seven grains are barley, wheat, rice, corn, chickpeas, kukani, and dahl or peas). Now take Your morning bath, decorate the water pot with flower garlands and sandalwood paste, and inn the concave lid atop the pot place there the barley, pomegranate, and coconut. 

Now with great love and devotion worship the water pot Deity form and offer Him incense, sandalwood paste, flowers, a ghee lamp, and a plate of sumptuous foods. Remain there awake that night beside this sacred pot. On top of the lid filled with barley, etc., place a golden murthy of Lord Sri Narayana.

“ ‘ “When Ekadasii dawns, take Your morning bath and then decorate the water pot with fine sandalwood paste and garlands. Then worship the pot again with first class incense, lamps, sandalwood paste and flowers dipped in sandalwood paste, and then devoutly/devotedly place many kinds of cooked food, pomegranate, and coconut before the water pot. Then remain awake over night.

“ ‘ “When the Dwadasi dawns, take the water pot to the bank of a holy river, or even to the shore of a small pond. After worshipping it again properly, Oh King of kings, offer it with all the aforementioned ingredients to a pure hearted brahmin, expert in the Vedic sciences. If You and Your military commanders observe the Vijaya Ekadasii in this way, You will surely be victorious in every way.”

“” ‘Lord Sri Ramachandra Bhagavan, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, did just as Bakad Albhya Muni instructed, and thus He conquered all demoniac forces. Similarly, anyone who observes the Vijaya Ekadasii in this way will always be victorious in this mortal world, and after leaving this world he/she will reside forever in the anxiety free realm of the Kingdom of God known as the Vaikunthas.”

“ ‘Oh Narada, my son, from this history you can understand why one should observe this Ekadasii fast properly, strictly following the rules and regulations. This fast is powerful enough to eradicate all one’s sinful reactions, even the most abominable ones.”

Lord Sri Krishna concluded, “Oh Yudhisthira, anyone who reads or hears this history will attain the same great merit as that which is earned by performing a horse sacrifice on days of yore.”

Thus ends the narration of the glories of Phalguna-krsna Ekadasii or Vijaya Ekadasii, from the Skanda Purana.
