Sridhara Maharaja program in Santa Cruz California

PADA: Apparently, the current appointed successor to their mission is Janardana Mahajaraja. He is supposed to be a former ISKCON devotee who left and went over to Sridhara Maharaja. If anyone has more details about him and his program we'd like to know what his status is. Apparently, Tripurari swami has started his own branch separated from Janardan Maharaja, citing that the other successors are not experienced preachers like he is.

Its amazing to us that after Sridhara Maharaja started the false and illicit sex gurus program in India after 1936, and later after 1977 he helped the eleven ISKCON GBC's create their bogus policies of: zonal gurus, appointed gurus, guru voting systems, policy of falling down among the acharyas, and so on and so forth, that he is still considered as a big authority.

Sridhara Maharaja kept saying that "Swami Maharaja" had appointed eleven gurus, but there is no evidence that even happened? Sridhara Maharaja never apparently even asked to see the evidence, nor does he know that gurus are not appointed, nor does he even know that when people are falling down, they are not gurus? Which is why Srila Prabhupada says his advice can be very harmful to ISKCON.

We cannot help but notice that there are not other centers being built except for this one place in Soquel. Sudhir Krishna is apparently also staying there along with a group of ex-ISKCON folks. We are however indebted to Sudhir Krishna for giving us a pile of transcripts of the GBC talking to Sridhara Maharaja in the late 1970s where he said things like "none should protest" the bogus 11 gurus, that gurus sometimes "go mad" after money, women and followers, that the spirit souls are from the brahmajyoti, and so many other talks with Sridhara Maharaja which reveal how he was a big supporter of the false gurus of ISKCON and various apa-siddhanta.

We never get any answer either from the Danavir and Bhakti Vikas maharaja groups as to why they supported everyone accepting Sridhara Maharaja as the "shiksha guru" authority of ISKCON in 1978? Why did these people not stop the nonsense when Sridhara Maharaja helped the GBC write their position paper "The Mahajanas Have Difficulties" in 1980, a paper that attacks the Mahajanas? Why didn't anyone raise the alarm when Sridhara Maharaja said we originate in brahman, which is actually mayavada siddhanta? And now these SM people are putting Lord Siva deities in some of their temples and  etc.

Anyway, if anyone knows more about these folks and has some incidents of their current preaching, for example -- if they have ever explained why they supported the bogus 11 etc. we'd like to know. And if their current acharya is a former ISKCON member, are they not making neophytes into acharyas -- again, after they fumbled that issue ever since 1936? ys pd


The bogus guru appointment:

Sridhar Maharaja in 1972:

Sridhara Maharaja and the 11 GBC gurus:


  1. Sridhar Maharaja picked Govinda Maharaja as his successor. Govinda Maharaja picked Acharya Maharaja as his successor acharya. Unfortunately, like Narayan Maharaja's sucessor Tirtha Maharaja, Acharya Maharaja also had questionable dealings with women. And like Tirtha Maharaja, Acharya Maharaja also refused to step down. Thus causing strife and some split within their maths. Inresting link o this matter:

  2. Hare Rama,
    please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    There are many bogus Acharyas outside iskcon now as well.
    Do you know this guy?
    "Sri Acharyaji was formally ordained in India as an orthodox Vedic brahmana (a spiritual teacher and Hindu priest) in 1986 by his guru, the world famous Vaishnava Acharya Bhakti Rakshaka Sridhara Swami.

    His full Sanskrit name is Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya. "Dharma-Pravartaka" means "He Who Sets Dharma in Motion." He is known today to his many thousands of students and followers affectionately as Sri Acharyaji."

    I already warned his youtube servant that they need to stop worshiping an unauthorized Acharya and that this offense can lead them to hell according to Sri Isopanishad Mantra 11 purport.
    But they do not care...
