Letter from Prabhavishnu explained

To the members of the GBC and devotees of ISKCON,
Dear Maharajas and prabhus,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupad!

It is with deep regret that I wish to inform you that I have resigned from all positions of leadership within ISKCON, including GBC member, sannyas, and initiating guru. This is because in recent times I have not been able to maintain the required spiritual standards for those who hold such positions.

[PADA: Notice that the ISKCON GBC has now concocted a policy of re-making the status of "guru, acharya, sum total of the demigods, assistant to Radharani" i.e. the diksha guru, into some sort of corporate managerial post where one is voted in, "censured" by the corporate committee, and one can then "resign" just like Satsvarupa "resigned." They have gone far away from the original idea -- that the acharya is a position of being the eternal associate (parisad) of God, and so now -- the acharya is just some mundane official corporate post.]    
PVS: I have become physically and mentally exhausted due to constant travel and managerial pressures. It has been especially draining for me to try to solve disputes amongst devotees, as I am by nature a non-conflictive type of person.

[PADA: You are promoting a "guru system" which regularly bans, beats and sometimes assassinates our Prabhupadanuga vaishnavas,  but you are a "non-conflictive" sort of guy? Why are you promoting and supporting a system that is creating all these conflicts, if not violence?]

PVS: I have travelled almost constantly throughout my life since childhood and now I feel the need to settle in one place where I find the climate and culture to be agreeable my physical and mental nature. I am considering staying in Thailand as I find it to be such a place, and as I have also developed some affection for a person there who is decent, kind-hearted, diligent and humble. 

[PADA: OK, you have affection for some woman in Thailand, goody. Actually that is great that you can have affection for someone, but -- how come you have for the past 35 years had absolutely no affection for your God brothers while your guru clique systematically banned, beat and assassinated us?]

PVS: If that works out for me then I certainly hope to render some service to ISKCON there. If not, then I would hope to try and live in an ISKCON temple or community, perhaps in South India. I am very sorry to have let you all down. I have never asked to be put in any of these positions of leadership, but by Krsna’s arrangement they have been conferred upon me. 

[PADA: OK, you were asked if you would take the post of a acharya / messiah for ISKCON by other similar people who had hi-jacked that post -- and you agreed. Sorry, this was not laid at your feet, you wanted to be worshiped as another GBC sum total of all the demigods messiah and when it was offered -- you took it. If that post is artificially conferred on you, its your duty to reject that false conferring process. And in the same way, if someone artificially gets a certificate, "You Are Now A Bona Fide Brain Surgeon," that person cannot go and start opening up people's heads with a power saw, and then when arrested for murder, argue, well -- I was given a certificate to perform these operations? No, you have to reject that bogus certification, or else you are a criminal.]

PVS: I have tried my best, but somehow I no longer feel able to continue in such capacity. Nevertheless, I have always been very happy in ISKCON from the moment I joined till the present. It has been a great honour for me to have had the opportunity to render some service to Srila Prabhupad’s movement, and to have had all of your association. I hope to be able to continue to maintain contact with devotees, visit ISKCON temples from time to time and render service to ISKCON in the future.

Once again my deepest apologies to you all. Kindly forgive any mistakes that I have made or any offences that I may have committed to any of you.

I hope this finds you in good health and Krsna conscious mood,

Your unqualified servant,

Prabhavisnu das.

[PADA: You mean to tell me he never knew he was not the sum total of the demigods? He just now figured that out? He was being worshipped as a pure devotee / acharya / maid servant of Radharani, and he did not know he was unfit for that worship? No, he knew all along, he just cheated people, the cheaters and the cheated. ys pd]
