RE: Bhakti Caru investing in business

Premchand das:  Bhakti Caru Swami clearly states that he officates as GBC. As a GBC it is his responsibility to instruct the devotees what to do and what not do from spiritual point of view.

His duty as GBC would have been to instruct the devotees not to get involved in such kind of business Prabhupada never would have authorized. Prabhupada always warned his followers, not to indulge in risky business but stick to book distribution.

Prabhupada: “Our first business is this book distribution. There is no need of any other business. If this book distribution is managed properly, pushed on with great enthusiasm and determination and at the same time if our men keep spiritually strong, then the whole world will become Krishna conscious.”

Then BCS states, “ISKCON was transitioning from a sankirtan-centred economy to a congregation-centred economy.” This is pretty much in need of explanation since Prabhupada always wanted sankirtan and book distribution as main activity of his movement. Since BCS is officiating as GBC it is his duty to disclose, why ISKCON was changed into a “congregation-centred economy”?

“Sudden diaspora of temple devotees”, as if the devotees had left out of their own. Meanwhile it is well-known known that all over Europe thousands of devotees were forced to leave ISKCON.  But BCS carefully avoids to mention why there was a “sudden diaspora” and he never saw any need for action to uncover the reason and why it happened? In sum, his reply gives rise to more questions than are answered.
