Writing to the New York State Attorney General

[PADA: First of all, the GBC says that God's gurus, messiahs and "God's parampara of successors" are also God's "living representatives on earth." Then they say, their "voted in" gurus -- and living representations of God -- are often "engaged in illicit sex with men, women and possibly children." 

OK this is for starters fraud, because Srila Prabhupada never teaches that God's gurus and successors are illicit sex, rather he says it is a severe offense to consider God's representatives and gurus as fallen. Next, these leader are teaching this nonsense to children, that God's Jesus-like guru successors are often engaged in illicit sex with men, women and possibly children, which is corrupting the morals of minors. Its like showing porno to minors. This would be considered as criminal also by the founder of ISKCON. Yep, lets write to the AG (address below) and complain about these rogues! ys pd] 

It is currently being argued that the only persons who have STANDING in the matter of the sale of the Brooklyn ISKCON temple are those who have donated $$ regularly to the temple.

To which I say: "Anyone who has served the NY yatra, at ANY time, has standing. Seva trumps $$ since it is PRICELESS (the benefit & value cannot be measured)"

This wider group, naturally, includes THOUSANDS of individuals .. not just the current small number of Brooklyn congregational members. SO MANY of Srila Prabhupada's direct disciples have served or visited NY yatra over the years.

There is a very determined effort to exclude the MANY in order to benefit a FEW, and net the proceeds of a $60 to $80 million dollar sale, which will then fall into the (unaccountable) hands of 5 people.

Every disciple, life-member, and grand disciple Has Standing in this debate, regardless of what the profiteers, NY temple managers, or their GBC supporters may think.

Please, write any concerns/ observations/testimony to the NY State Attorney Generals office at

The more of us who write to the NY Attorney General, the less likely this sale will go forward. It is now BLOCKED from sale by the AG's office since the building is a non-profit CHARITY.

The property and contents falls under the jurisdiction of the NY AG since it is a charity, without their approval it cannot be sold, or they may recommend the case be sent to court for adjudication (resolution). For more than a year, there has been total refusal to disclose any information regarding the sale. Who gets the money? Where do the Deities go? Why the sale? The Brooklyn County Recorders Office shows 5 individuals "owning" Bharati Center Inc., defined as "A Charity"

5 individuals do not own this. We do...all of us. All of us have an interest in the future of NY Yatra.

A number of us already watched the wonderful 55th St temple go without protest. It turns out that one of the signatures on that sale was fraudulent. However, there is no way to recover that loss

Don't let this happen again.

End Women Discrimination at Soho Street!

[PADA: OK petitioning the GBC is a little like sending a petition aboard the lunar lander probe -- and expecting a reply. Probably! You won't get one. We are really showing people where the GBC is at, they are not actually managing ISKCON for the benefit of the society, but for the benefit of themselves. We also heard a report that one GBC temple recently removed their last woman resident and they "no longer have any women residents at all." Oh swell. 

So this is getting to be like the post-1936 Gaudiya Matha folks, they also did not want female residents, females engaged in services and etc. OK its misogynist according to Srila Prabhupada's standards. The good news is, this means more people are waking up and realizing these GBC's guys are not gurus, you really do not petition the guru to behave better, but you do petition fools acting as gurus to behave better. 

Of course what do you expect from GBC people who say: (A) God is pure, and thus (B) His guru successor is just as pure and "shaksat hari tvena" as God, therefore, (C) The guru is often just like a cesspool of bad behavior. Yep, that is what their party says every day! God is equal to a cesspool? 

If these guys compare God's successors to a cesspool, and thereby attack God, then they will attack anyone less than God. So we are in good company, they attack God as equal to a cesspool, and they attack us as another cesspool, so we are clearly in good company and on the right side! Anyway, their misogyny is getting more and more self evident and we are glad people are picking up on this. And yep, if they have to be petitioned, they are not gurus. That proves our point in spades. ys pd]

Brahma Tirtha Dasa (Robert Cohen) "ISKCON is a Septic Tank"?

ISKCON is a septic tank?

BTD (Robert Cohen, Gainesville Florida): Did you know about the “septic tank of Iskcon”? “Mother Yamuna’s tears made me a devotee!” Lord Chaitanya never had a chilly pepper. As devotees we are the greatest personalists hypothetically, theoretically, scripturally but how many of you are lonely? How should we treat the protective “wire-mesh” that Srila Prabhupada installed around our tender plant of devotion? I was very bewildered, every one was telling me to do everything, some would say the most important is the chanting, others, reading is the most important thing, others, offering obeisances was the most important, others, prasadam is the most important, it was going on and on and on and everything was the most important. I had no idea what to do!

[PADA: Right, Brahma Tirtha Dasa (Robert Cohen) is a big supporter of the GBC's illicit sex messiahs program, which we had to have sued for $400,000,000 for mass child molesting, while us protesters to the BTD molester messiahs program were being banned, beaten and assassinated. 

BTD is thus one of the persons who co-created making ISKCON into a septic tank of deviations, including sexual predator gurus and acharyas. Did we forget to mention that Brahma Tirtha's best pal Jayadvaita swami (Jay Israel) says that in ISKCON, we may find that their gurus and messiahs are "engaged in illicit sex with men, women and possibly children as well." 

Apparently, worshiping sex with billy goats is the only thing forbidden in their process? 

What kind of messiahs is BTD giving to little children? BTD is clearly preaching that children need to worship his illicit sex messiahs program. Children need to worship an illicit sex guru lineage to attain God? Isn't this illegal corrupting the morals of minors? Where does Krishna say that we need to worship illicit sex with men, women and children -- to attain Him? Is that what God would say? Well yes, according to these folks ... So we would argue that since there is nothing in the ISKCON charter that says little children should be educated to think their gurus and messiahs are sexual predators, it would be illegal to teach them that way using the name of ISKCON, as the Brahma tirtha program has been doing now for decades. 

Brahma Tirtha is also a big supporter of Krishna West, the people who reinstated the worship of a known sexual predator as the messiah of ISKCON, at least they list him as one of their supporters. This is odd isn't it, in the beginning of an article from a person who claims to promote ISKCON, he says -- ISKCON is a septic tank? Is this a Freudian Slip? Or is he among the alleged conspiracy of Kali disciples to drag ISKCON into a cesspool? Actual ISKCON is Krishna, its not a cesspool, but those of you who misrepresent it are the cesspool. ys pd]

The ISKCON Resolve committee, has "resolved" -- to promote their illicit sex with men, women and children messiahs program? Heh heh heh!

Akshaya Patra in DNA News

2/3 Animal Species Gone in 20 Years?

Adelaide ISKCON Temple Meltdown Increases

Dear Readers

Hare Krishna.

I wish the entire Adelaide matter could be dealt with internally. I have had a few people beg me not to make this issue fodder for the media.

But what can i do? I have exhausted all internal methods of complaint.

Earlier this year, i was informed by a friend associated with Adelaide Temple that young women had suffered prolonged and traumatising sexual harrasment by the son of the Temple President. They had informed the Temple President who did nothing to stop it and indeed tried to punish the victims by forbidding them to perform their usual temple service. Abuse of women continued and indeed escalated.

You can't just believe rumours, however, so i travelled over to Adelaide to find out for myself if these stories were true. I spent many hours talking to distressed young women, their angry family members and indeed many members of the community who were extremely disturbed that the higher authorities had apparently decided that it was OK for the Temple President, Adi Purusa Krsna das, to be retained in his position, despite the fact he had not acted to protect women who came to him complaining of being abused. It is worth noting that neither of the GBC men, Ramai Swami or Devamrta Swami, visited Adelaide to speak to the community members. Actually both of them have visited Adelaide for a matter of days only in the last 10 years.

I joined the Hare Krishna Temple in 1973 when i was 17 years old. Within a short time i had experienced sexual harrasment, sexual assault and violent rape. This is pretty well ancient history now and i have spent the last 20 years of my life especially, actively cultivating Radical Forgiveness, Compassion and Love for all beings.

However the journey has not been easy for me or my family members. If at all possible, i would like to be able to prevent other young women who become attracted to the process of Bhakti Yoga, from suffering in these shocking ways.

So i have been involved in an intense email writing campaign to try to convince the decision makers of our organization that a man who fails to protect women from sexual abuse, even after being informed of their distress, is not fit to be the leader of a community of sincere souls who are seeking self realisation. It is clearly against the instructions of Srila Prabhupada, who emphasised the need to protect women, and it is also contrary to the expectations of secular Australian society.

For those who say i should settle this internally, i inform you of the following attempts made by me. I have written repeatedly, and i have the email trail, to the Secretary of the Australian National Council of ISKCON, Aniruddha das. I have written to the Minister of Communications Bhakta das. I have written to the newly appointed Representative for Women on the ISKCON National Council, Krishna Rupa devi. I have written to the Director of the Child Protection Office Damodara Pandit prabhu. I have written to the entire National Council as a whole. I have personally spoken to 2 members of the Executive Council, Ajit and Mathura.

All these people have ignored me or trivialised the complaints at Adelaide Temple or, even if sympathetic, have been unable to bring about a positive outcome.

I have repeatedly asked for professional mediation, through ISKCON Resolve with Ramai Swami , the long term GBC man. (Governing Body Commissioner). He has flatly refused to participate. I have spoken to other members of the National Council who are concerned but feel powerless to act in ways contrary to the decision of Ramai Swami in particular for fear of reprisals.

I should mention that i wrote to the National Secretary requesting the minutes of the AGM or some other documentation that would prove Ramai Swami's claim that the decision to retain Adi Purusa Krsna as Temple President, was unanimously made by the 5 members of the Executive Council. Despite this request, and in line with the secret methods used by sinister organizations, i was denied permission to see the minutes.

Getting nowhere with the Australian managers, i then wrote to members of the International GBC. Once again, i was ignored or fobbed off.

In the meantime, pressure was put on the Director of Govinda Valley to move me on. He had no choice but to comply. In Australia, if you publicly disagree with Ramai Swami, you soon find yourself the victim of bullying, intimidation and character assasination. In addition, you can have all your service taken away from you and be expelled from the very project you established. We have seen this for nearly 40 years. Back in the days of the bogus Zonal Acaryas, Jayadharma prabhu was expelled from his country temple at Colo River for refusing to worship Bhavananda. This pattern has continued.

So I don't see that there are any other options for me but the media and other organisations i have mentioned previously. A godsister recently asked me why the victims don't just go to the police and let abusers be taken care of directly and in this way, save ISKCON as a whole being dragged into disrepute.

The problem is this. Many of these survivors have already told their stories many times and have received little in the way of compassion or empathy from "leaders" in ISKCON, who appear to be cold hearted and have no concern for their spiritual or emotional welfare. These "leaders" seem preoccupied with denying any wrong doing and go straight into protection mode - of the abusers and the organization that is- not those who have been mistreated.

Mainly these survivors want to get on with their lives. There is a lot of healing to do as well as cope with everyday demands of study, work, family and community service. Generally, it is advised that they go for professional counselling to aid in their recovery. In addition, they may need to spend extra time building supportive relationships with those who are often bewildered by the complex and murky interpersonal dynamics that frequently accompany these horrible scenarios.

They also are aware, unfortunately, that if they DO take these matters to court, they will be subject to more trauma as their abuser's lawyers do everything they can to discredit their testimony, question every detail and, in line with what we have seen so many times before, attempt to shift the blame of the sexual misconduct onto the person who experienced the abuse. It is no wonder that many choose NOT to go through the courts. And even if they do, this could take a very long time.

So a video is being prepared for wide circulation. Everything is being triple fact-checked. There is full documentation for all claims made. Nothing is rumour or exaggerated. All the legal and spiritual names of the main players will be stated for the record. (Not the names of the survivors. Their rights to privacy will be respected in the public forum. )The present idea is to release this video to the general public soon after the Disappearance Day of Srila Prabhupada on 4 November.

For those of my acquaintances who would prefer all this is NOT made public, do something yourselves. Talk, write or phone. Implore the "leaders" to immediately remove Adi Purusa Krsna das as Temple President of Adelaide. Let the sincere devotees of Adelaide Temple manage their own temple as per Srila Prabhupada's Directions on Management.

Let disappointment be replaced with hope. Let bewilderment be replaced with clarity. Let those who have come to the Hare Krishna Temple to experience a harmonious and peaceful environment, be relieved of their anxieties. Let Srila Prabhupada's directions be implemented.

Please support this campaign in any way you are able

Your humble servant

The GBC Committee Administers the Acharyas? (Bhakti Vikas swami update)

The GBC committee administers -- Krishna and His acharyas?

[PADA: OK this group are people like Kim Moller, Ajit Krishna, Torben Neilsen, Rocana, Kailash and of course the bogus GBC.] 

BVKS fan: There is a lot of things within our society that's not optimal yet and for sure the present guru system is problematic, within an institution and that is what SP wanted, we must have some regulation of its gurus and therefor a board of Sannyasi gurus would be optimal, but simply to shoot with a scattergun of general blame and complaints reveals some obvious maya.

PADA: First of all, you have not shown even one quote where Srila Prabhupada says that the "parampara of gurus from Krishna" are under the control of a Governing Body that you admit, "makes many mistakes"? I am not seeing that? Now you BVKS folks say that these gurus who fell down are part of the process of institutional gurus. That is exactly why Srila Prabhupada said, do not make institutional gurus like the Gaudiya Matha has done. 

Where does Srila Prabhupada say we should have institutional gurus who are "making many mistakes"? You folks are really not answering the point? Yes, there are many rules for the GBC, including that when they deviate they have to be replaced. So why are BVKS folks saying the guru parampara FROM GOD contains deviants who "make many mistakes," and then the deviants have to be replaced? That means BVKS folks are saying the guru parampara is like a conditioned soul mundane business where the leader of the business is caught cheating, so he is replaced. The guru is like a business man, or a politician like Richard Nixon who "makes many mistakes" -- and then -- has to be replaced? 

The guru parampara is like a mundane business affair? Or politicians? 

OK! According to you, the Gaudiya guru parampara has deviants who are making many mistakes and have to be replaced! Yet, in shastra there is apparently, no such thing as the parampara being under the control of a committee that is "making a lot of mistakes"? It does not matter if the people making these mistakes are grhasthas or sanyasas either, people who are making mistakes are still in the category of conditioned souls. 

You are mixing up a Governing Body, where these devotees are still neophyte conditioned souls who will make mistakes, with the guru parampara, where there are no conditioned souls who make these mistakes. The rules for the conditioned souls do not apply to the pure. ys pd

BVKS fan: "Now you BVKS folks says that these gurus who fell down are part of the process of institutional gurus" where do we say that, show me?

PADA: You just said the institution (of gurus under the control of a GBC that makes mistakes) is the institution Srila Prabhupada wanted? You also said these gurus are problematic, which means you are saying these gurus are conditioned souls and not pure. Your gurus are "problematic" -- because they are conditioned souls and not gurus. 

Or are you saying actually bona fide gurus are pure representatives of God, therefore, they create problems because God's representatives are trouble makers, and full of mistakes? Why does BVKS folks say that the guru parampara is causing troubles? And if the guru parampara is causing troubles for others, then why would anyone want to surrender to it? It sounds like BVKS clan is making the guru parampara as un-attractive as it possible can, its full of problematic people, its full of mistakes, ok the guru parampara from God is like your old drunk uncle Fred, who causes problems and he makes mistakes?

And now you said these institutional gurus are "regulated" by the institutional committee -- that makes these "many mistakes"? How can the guru be regulated by people who make many mistakes, and how is this the institution Srila Prabhupada wanted? Where does he say he wants gurus to be regulated by people who are making many mistakes? Where does Srila Prabhupada say that the guru is regulated by conditioned souls who make mistakes, and we should institutionalize this process? ys pd

BVKS fan: You are making up stories as usual, its very simple, Srila Prabhupada set up an institution and never anywhere asked His devotees to leave The Greater ISKCON, quite the contrary, so just a little logic proves that The Greater ISKCON must have its guru instead of spreading to all kinds of branches, this was also the idea of Srila Prabhupadas guru maharaja and HDG clearly said that after His demise, disciples could if qualified take up the service of guru, in fact He expected ALL His disciples to raise to that platform.

PADA: So gurus who are being problematic, voted in, suspended, removed and controlled by people making mistakes, and gurus falling into sexual deviations etc. is your idea of ISKCON? Where does Srila Prabhupada says that gurus falling into deviations left, right and center, is ISKCON? Srila Prabhupada said that his disciples are not qualified YET to be diksha gurus, that is why he set up a Governing Body process and not a guru process. ys pd

BVKS fan: I did not say that all are not pure devotees, that is again your invented story, therefore a board of gurus is wanted and not grihastas.... You are as usual generalizing and shooting with scattergun and in this way committing great offence and for this reason nobody likes to hear from you. In history gurus has always been falling prey to deviations also of sexual character, nothing new under the sun, the question is how an institution want deal with it.

PADA: So now you BVKS folks are saying the guru parampara is full of sexual deviations, and its nothing new? Which previous acharyas are sexual deviants? Anyway right, the GBC said in 1978 that they are subordinated to the "Acharya Board" and there is no actual GBC anymore, the Acharya Board over-steps the GBC authority. 

What is an acharya board? 

Where is this acharya board mentioned by Srila Prabhupada? And since the acharya board is also making mistakes, according to you, what kind of acharya board is "problematic" and "making many mistakes"? Is that how an acharya board operates? And since the guru is above the GBC, because he is in direct connection with Krishna, how can you say the board manages the guru, when the guru is superior to a Governing body? How can the board over-step the guru who is getting dictation from God?

And worse, now you BVKS folks say this board of gurus -- makes many mistakes? How does a board of gurus make many mistakes? And now you say, because I do not accept that gurus are making many mistakes, I am an offender? No, Srila Prabhupada says that people who say gurus are conditioned souls (who make mistakes) are the offenders. 

Gurusuh narah matih narakah sah, anyone who thinks guru is ordinary man who makes mistakes, is a resident of narakah, you need to cite shastra here. Anyway, you finally came out with your real idea, the parampara has deviants, who have to be controlled by a committee of people, and the committee is comprised of people who are making many mistakes. 

Nope! People who fall prey to sexual deviations are not gurus, this is known even to the karmi man on the street! Conditioned souls are subject to being prey to sexual deviations, and not gurus, even the kindergarten children know deviants are not, were not, could not have been gurus. ys pd

BVKS fan: Your conclusion is worse than kindergarten and there for its waste of time talking to you. What I say is, and try to read careful if possible, is that gurus have been falling down through history, nothing new under the sun and it happened also in Bhaktisiddhanta's time, so what is your problem with this fact? To you such talk is sense enjoyment and there for you put words in peoples mouth and invent crazy conclusions.

PADA: Why is the BVKS clan saying gurus in our Gaudiya Vaishnava guru parampara were falling down all the time, even at the time of Srila Saraswati? Who were they? Name one! Srila Prabhupada says it is an offense to say his parampara contains deviants. Why is the BVKS clan always trying to establish that Krishna and his guru parampara are defective, problematic, full of mistakes, and so they need to be administered by the committee, oooops and the committee has the same program, it is also problematic and full of mistakes? How can you fix your problematic and mistaken gurus, with a committee full of problematic and mistaken individuals?  

Right, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta says that the gurus who have illicit sex are already monkeys, they are already residents of the lower regions, and they will become monkeys in their next life. Markat vairaghya. 

Now you say, you do not see any problem with worship of these monkeys? Even kindergarten children do not worship monkeys? Srila Prabhupada also says that gurus who have sex with followers are exactly like a father having sex with his daughter. He never said this was part of our parampara, he said this is a deviation. ys pd

Ayur vedic Restaurant in East Village NYC

Bhakti Vikas Swami: Gurus are illusion and mistakes?


PADA: OK but BVKS does not describe fully how his GBC -- that has been associated since 1977 with these Gaudiya Matha's leaders, the Babajis, Jayapataka's ghost buster (who was ghost busting the GBC's gurus because Krishna and His gurus are in the modes of ignorance?), disciples of Gaudiya Matha gurus like Bon and Tirtha, various and sundry astrologers etc. -- could constitute a bona fide guru parampara? Why does BVKS keep saying these deviations are a bona fide guru program?

BVKS is saying the people associated with all these deviations are gurus, of course his gurus also engage in illicit sex, drugs, drinking beer, one at least went back to meat eating. Why is BVKS saying that the parampara from Krishna is full of illicit sex, drugs, and even some examples of eating meat? He has a guru parampara, which is full of these deviations, which is not our siddhanta, rather our siddhanta is that Krishna is pure and so are His successors. 

Why doesn't BVKS accept that Krishna is pure and so are His successors? BVKS is saying Krishna is a deviant because His successors are deviants? Why is BVKS juxtaposing his illicit sex with men, women and children gurus program into a pure parampara? If he wants to promote his worship illicit sex program, why is he doing that in the name of God? Worship illicit sex elsewhere? So this is the first problem, BVKS does not even know that Krishna is pure and thus so are His successors. BVKS has dedicated his life to juxtaposing deviations with Krishna and His succession. BVKS is trying to establish that Krishna is a debauchee because his successors are debauchees. Krishna is a debauchee?

BVKS still says his GBC guru system is bona fide, at the same time, he says -- they are not bona fide and they are deviating? How can the GBC's guru parampara be both a bona fide guru parampara, and not, at the same time? This is a question we get on our blogs on a regular basis, how can the GBC guru program members declare that the GBC guru system is both bona fide, and not bona fide, simultaneously, -- this is creating major confusion to the devotees and regular people. How do I answer them? BVKS has apparently not answered this question because some people say they do not get an answer when they asked him.

The BVKS diksha gurus and acharyas are monitored, corrected, censured, suspended, excommunicated etc. by a GBC? Prithu das and others say that the GBC "has been making many mistakes," why is the guru subordinated to these people who are self-admittedly making "many mistakes"? Srila Prabhupada says the guru is transcendental to the platform of mistakes, and now you folks are apparently saying, the guru is subordinated to the platform of mistakes? Not sure what your point is? Are you saying that gurus are defective beings who need to be controlled by even more defective beings? Where does Srila Prabhupada say that the guru parampara is subordinated to defective people who make "many mistakes"? 

And BVKS now says that his illicit sex gurus are authorized in the ISKCON charter? This says that the diksha guru is not getting dictation from Krishna, the guru is getting dictation from a committee body that is "making lots of mistakes"? I thought the first thing for a guru is, he needs to be free of the platform of mistakes? I am sorry but everywhere I read, Srila Prabhupada says the guru is subordinated only to Krishna and he is never subordinated to a committee that "makes a lot of mistakes." Can you please cite me chapter and verse where Srila Prabhupada says Krishna, His parampara, and His diksha gurus are subordinated to committees that are "making lots of mistakes"? 

I just cannot find it, nor have you shown it. Worse, you guys are not making mistakes, anyone who objects is banned, sued, maybe beat up and / or assassinated, its not a mistake, its a goonda enforced deviation. ys pd

Yudhisthira Maharaj said, “O Janardana, O protector of all beings, what is the name of the Ekadashi that comes during the dark fortnight (Krishna paksha) of the month of Kartik (October - November)? Please impart this sacred knowledge to me. The Supreme Lord, Sri Krishna then spoke as follows, “O lion among kings, please listen as I narrate to you. The Ekadashi that occurs during the dark part of the month of Kartika is called Rama Ekadashi. It is most auspicious, for it at once eradicates the greatest sins and awards one the passage to the spiritual abode. I shall now narrate to you its history and glories.

“There once lived a famous king of the name Muchakunda, who was friendly to Lord Indra, the king of the heavenly planets, as well as with Yamaraj, Varuna, and Vibhishana, the pious brother of the demon Ravana. Muchakunda always spoke the truth and constantly rendered devotional service to Me. Because he ruled according to religious principles, there were no disturbances in his kingdom. Muchakunda's daughter was named Chandrabhaga, after a sacred river, and the king gave her in marriage to Shobhana, the son of Chandrasena. One day, Shobhana visited his father-in-law’s palace on the auspicious Ekadashi day.”

This visit made Shobhana’s wife Chandrabhaga quite anxious, for she knew that Her husband was physically very weak and unable to bear the austerity of a day-long fast. She said to him, ‘My father is very strict about following Ekadashi. On Dasami, the day before Ekadashi, he strikes a large kettledrum and announces, “Nobody should eat on Ekadashi, the sacred day of Sri Hari!’.

When Shobhana heard the sound of the kettledrum, he said to his wife, “O beautiful one, what am I to do now? Please tell me how I can save my life and obey your father's strictness and at the same time satisfy our guests!

“Chandrabhaga then spoke, ‘My dear husband, in my father’s house nobody - not even the elephants or horses, what to speak of consenting human beings - eats on Ekadashi. Indeed, none of the animals are given their ration of grains, leaves, or straw - or even water! - on Ekadashi, the sacred day of Sri Hari’.

‘So how can you escape fasting? My beloved husband, if you must eat something, then you should leave here at once. Now, with firm conviction decide on what you have to do.’ “Prince Shobhana then said, ‘I have decided to fast on the sacred Ekadashi day. Whatever my fate is, it will surely come to pass.’ “Deciding thus, Shobhana attempted to fast on this Ekadashi, but he became unbearably disturbed with excessive hunger and thirst. Eventually the sun set in the west, and the arrival of the auspicious night made all the Vaishnavas very happy. O Yudhisthira, all the devotees enjoyed worshipping me (Sri
Hari) and remaining awake all through night, but Prince Shobhana that night became absolutely unbearable. Indeed, when the Sun rose on the Dwadasi, that Prince Shobhana was dead. “King Muchakunda observed his son-in-law’s funeral, ordering a large stack of wood be assembled for the fire, but he instructed his daughter Chandrabhaga not to join her husband on the funeral pyre. Thus Chandrabhaga, after performing all the purificatory processes and procedures for honoring her deceased husband, continued to live in her father’s house.”

Lord Sri Krishna continued, “O best of the kings, Yudhisthira, even though Shobhana died because of observing Rama Ekadashi, the merit that he accrued enabled him, after his death, to become the ruler of a kingdom high on the peak of Mandarachala Mountain. This kingdom was like a city of the demigods; very lustrous, with unlimited jewels set in the walls of its buildings that gave off light. The pillars were made of rubies, and gold inlaid with diamonds shone everywhere. As King Shobhana sat upon a throne beneath a pure white canopy, servants fanned him with yak-tail whisks. A stunning crown rested upon his head, beautiful earrings adorned his ears, a necklace graced his throat, and bejeweled armlets and bracelets encircled his arms. He was served by Gandharvas (the best of heavenly singers) and Apsaras (celestial dancers).”

Verily, he resembled a second Indra. “One day, a brahmana named Somasharma, who lived in Muchakunda's kingdom, happened upon Shobhana’s kingdom while traveling to various places of pilgrimage. The brahmana saw Shobhana in all his resplendent glory and thought he might be the son-in-law of his own king Muchakunda. When Shobhana saw the brahmana approaching, he immediately rose up from his seat and welcomed him. After Shobhana had paid his respectful obeisances he asked the brahmana about his well-being and about the health and welfare of his (Shobhana’s) father-in-law, his wife and all the residents of the city.”

“Somasharma then said, ‘O king, all the residents and subjects are well in your father-in-law’s kingdom, and Chandrabhaga and your other family members are also quite well. Peace and prosperity reign throughout the kingdom. But there is one thing; I am quite astonished to find you here! Please tell me about yourself. Nobody has ever seen such a beautiful city as this! Kindly tell me how you obtained it.’ “King Shobhana then began to tell his story, ‘Because I observed the Rama Ekadashi, I was given this splendid city to rule over. But for all of its grandeur, it is only temporary. I beg you to do something to correct this deficiency. You see, this is only an ephemeral city, a place of this material world. How may I make its beauties and glories permanent? Kindly reveal this to me by your instructions.”

The brahmana then asked, ‘Why is this kingdom unstable and how will it become stable? Please fully explain this to me, and I shall try to help you.’

“Shobhana then answered, ‘Because I fasted on the Rama Ekadashiwithout any faith, this kingdom is impermanent. Now hear how it can become permanent. Please return to Chandrabhaga, the beautiful daughter of king Muchukunda, and tell her what you have seen and understood about this place and about me. Surely, if you, a pure hearted brahmana, tell her this, my city will soon become permanent.’ “Thus the brahmana returned to his city and related the entire episode to Chandrabhaga, who was both surprised and overjoyed to hear this news of her husband. She said, ‘O brahmana, is this a dream you have seen, or is it actually a factual thing?’ “Somasharma, the brahmana replied, ‘O princess, I have seen your late husband face to face in that wonderful kingdom, which resembles a realm of the denizens of heavens playgrounds. But you former husband has asked me to relate to you that he says that his kingdom is unstable and could vanish into thin air at any moment. Therefore he hopes you can find a way to make it permanent.’

“Chandrabhaga then said, ‘O sage among the brahmanas, please take me to that place where my husband resides at once, for I greatly desire to see him again! Surely I shall make his kingdom permanent with the merit that I have acquired by fasting on every Ekadashi throughout my life. Please reunite us at once, again. It is said that one who reunites separated persons also obtains very great merit.’

“The humble brahmana Somasharma then led Chandrabhaga to Shobhana’s effulgent kingdom. Before reaching it, however, they stopped at the foot of mountain Mandaracala, at the sacred ashram of Vamadeva. Upon hearing their story, Vamadeva chanted hymns from the Vedas and sprinkled holy water from his Samanya arghya upon Chandrabhaga. By the influence of that great Rishi’s rites, the merit she had accrued by fasting for so many Ekadashi made her body transcendental. Ecstatic, her eyes beaming in wonder, Chandrabhaga continued on her journey.”

"When Shobhana saw his wife approaching him high on Mount Mandarachala, he was overwhelmed with joy and called out to her in great happiness and jubilation After she arrived, he seated her on his left side and she said to him, ‘O dearest Patiguru, please listen as I tell you something that will benefit you greatly. Since I was eight years old I have fasted regularly and with full faith on every Ekadashi. If I transfer to you all the merit I have accumulated, your kingdom will surely become permanent, and its rosperity will grow and grow until the coming of the great inundation!'

Lord Sri Krishna then continued to address Yudhisthira as follows, “O Yudhisthira, in this way Chandrabhaga who was beautifully decorated with the finest ornaments and had an exquisitely transcendental body, at last enjoyed peace and happiness with her husband. By the potency of Rama Ekadashi, Shobhana found his kingdom on the peaks of Mt. Mandarachala able to fulfill all his desires and bestow upon him everlasting happiness, like that achieved from the transcendental Kaama-dhenu milch cow.” O greatest of kings, I have thus narrated to you the glories of Rama Ekadashi that falls in the dark fortnight of the month of Kartik.

Anyone who observes sacred Ekadashi during both the light and the dark fortnight of each month is undoubtedly freed from the reactions to the sin of killing a Brahmanas. One should not differentiate between the Ekadashi of the light and dark parts of the month. As we have seen, both can award pleasure in this world and liberate even the most sinful and fallen souls. Just as black cows and white cows give equally good quality milk. So the Ekadashi of the dark fortnight (Krishna paksha) and the light fortnight (shukla or Gaura paksha) award the same high degree of merit and eventually liberate one from the repeated cycle of birth and death. Anyone who simply hears this narration of the glories of the sacred day of Rama Ekadashi is freed from all kinds of sin and attains the supreme abode of Lord Vishnu.

Strange Posting on New Talavan Website

To PADA: I have never seen any iskcon temple president openly talking about his temples' ritvik community other than the temple president of Iskcon New Talavan -- he writes:

... The separatists claim that those of Srila Prabhupada’s disciples who have been empowered by the Governing Body Commission to confer initiations remain mere ritviks, which is to say, merely initiatory priests, while Srila Prabhupada himself remains the only bona fide guru. 

[PADA: All right here we go again, the first problem is the GBC documents keep saying they "empower the guru." Really? Is this done with a battery charger? Is he empowered by using magic mantras? We understand from Srila Prabhupada that the guru is empowered by Krishna, how can the GBC take over the post of -- God, and empower the guru themselves? 

OK really, God empowers the guru, but we should remove God from doing His job, and hi-jack His job and take it over ourselves? Why is the GBC always saying they have removed Krishna from doing His job, and they are taking over His job? 

Isn't this how we fell to the material world, we wanted to take over the job He does, and do it ourselves? Krishna dictates to the guru, oh never mind, the GBC kicks God out, and is now dictating to the guru, ... how does the GBC become "the dictation to the acharya," which is what Krishna is doing? 

Amazing, the GBC kicks out God and takes over His post, and they say this all the time, they are the people who empower the guru, dictate to the guru, create the guru, monitor the guru ... all of which can only be done by God. Well it seems their empowering is not working to swell, since more than half their empowered acharyas has fallen down. If you have a factory where half the products you make are faulty, you'd be out of business in no time.]    

The GBC has contemplated this position, and deems it a heresy, since it denies the guru / disciple relationship existing between Srila Prabhupada’s disciples and the newer devotees. 

[PADA: OK so the guru is eternal, sat guru, except in the GBC equation, where people have a number of gurus who fall down and then these people are "re-initiated" by the next wave of gurus. How can the guru be eternal and falling away left, right and center, all at once? That is why Jayadvaita swami himself said that getting a GBC guru is like buying a used car, "buyer beware." Did we forget to mention that used car salesmen are not usually the most trusted people in society? OK so how did the guru devolve from being sat guru, to being -- a used car? Yes, we have many buyer beware used cars here, come on down! We don't even sell you the guarantee!] 

Srila Prabhupada is the founder and acharya of ISKCON, and he remains the siksa (instructional) guru for all of us, through his books. 

[PADA: Great, so all these used car gurus are diksha gurus like Jesus and they can absorb sins like Jesus. Jesus is just like -- a used car?]

And Srila Prabhupada remains the grand spiritual master for the disciples of his disciples. As a matter unique to ISKCON, an ISKCON guru comes with a type of ‘guarantee’ attached, insofar as the guru remains accountable to the Governing Body Commission, and can be disciplined by that commission. 

[PADA: Oh here we go, the guru is foolish and needs discipline, ummm just like my neighbor's puppy has to be disciplined for urinating on the carpet? The guru is like a used car, and now --the guru is like a puppy who urinates on the carpet, he thus needs to be disciplined like a foolish puppy, simultaneously he is as pure as Jesus and he can absorb sins, this is getting better all the time!]

The ritvik followers of Srila Prabhupada do not have any kind of organized governing body that stands ready to hold anyone accountable. 

[PADA: So the guru is like a used car, and like a puppy, and like Jesus, all because the ritviks are not organized? The ritviks do not hold the guru accountable for bad behavior -- because they do not worship people who engage in bad behavior, there is no need to legislate gurus in the ritvik process.]

The ritviks lack gurus, having only apologists, and do not possess any kind of organizational structure. Prabhupada wanted the Governing Body Commission to be the ultimate governing authority in our vedantist society. After a thorough review of the controversy, the GBC determined that Srila Prabhupada did expect his disciples to fulfill the role of bona fide gurus, each one accepting his own disciples, training them, and inspiring them to enhance our Krsna consciousness movement. 

[PADA: This is a big lie, the GBC never said all of the disciples would accept disciples, they said only 11 are diksha gurus and all the rest are not? Later they said some of the GBC gurus are deviating in illicit sex, so let the system of deviants vote in more gurus? How can deviants vote in more gurus?]

The notions of the so-called ritviks stem from leadership problems that have occurred in the past within ISKCON. ....Thank you

Your servant

Yogindra Vandana Das

Temple president

[PADA: Jayadvaita says that the GBC guru parampara contains illicit sex, this is not in the past, this is their eternal lineage. Hee hee, we could go on here, but there are many contrary statements here. ys pd]

Srila Prabhupada reveals the glory of Radha Kunda.

vaikuṇṭhāj janito varā madhu-purī tatrāpi rāsotsavād

vṛndāraṇyam udāra-pāṇi-ramaṇāt tatrāpi govardhanaḥ

rādhā-kuṇḍam ihāpi gokula-pateḥ premāmṛtāplāvanāt

kuryād asya virājato giri-taṭe sevāṁ vivekī na kaḥ


vaikuṇṭhāt—than Vaikuṇṭha, the spiritual world; janitaḥ—because of birth; varā—better; madhu-purī—the transcendental city known as Mathurā; tatra api—superior to that; rāsa-utsavāt—because of the performance of the rāsa-līlā;vṛndā-araṇyam—the forest of Vṛndāvana; udāra-pāṇi—of Lord Kṛṣṇa; ramaṇāt—because of various kinds of loving pastimes; tatra api—superior to that; govardhanaḥ—Govardhana Hill; rādhā-kuṇḍam—a place called Rādhā-kuṇḍa; iha api—superior to this; gokula-pateḥ—of Kṛṣṇa, the master of Gokula; prema-amṛta—with the nectar of divine love; āplāvanāt—because of being overflooded; kuryāt—would do; asya—of this (Rādhā-kuṇḍa); virājataḥ—situated; giri-taṭe—at the foot of Govardhana Hill; sevām—service; vivekī—who is intelligent; na—not; kaḥ—who.


The holy place known as Mathurā is spiritually superior to Vaikuṇṭha, the transcendental world, because the Lord appeared there. Superior to Mathurā-Purī is the transcendental forest of Vṛndāvana because of Kṛṣṇa’s rāsa-līlāpastimes. And superior to the forest of Vṛndāvana is Govardhana Hill, for it was raised by the divine hand of Śrī Kṛṣṇa and was the site of His various loving pastimes. And, above all, the superexcellent Śrī Rādhā-kuṇḍa stands supreme, for it is overflooded with the ambrosial nectarean prema of the Lord of Gokula, Śrī Kṛṣṇa. Where, then, is that intelligent Person who is unwilling to serve this divine Rādhā-kuṇḍa, which is situated at the foot ofGovardhana Hill?


The spiritual world is three fourths of the total creation of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and it is the most exalted region. The spiritual world is naturally superior to the material world; however, Mathurā and the adjoining areas, although appearing in the material world, are considered superior to the spiritual world because the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself appeared at Mathurā. The interior forests of Vṛndāvana are considered superior to Mathurā because of the presence of the twelve forests (dvādaśa-vana), such as Tālavana, Madhuvana and Bahulāvana, which are famous for the various pastimes of the Lord. 

Thus the interior Vṛndāvana forest is considered superior to Mathurā, but superior to these forests is the divine Govardhana Hill because Kṛṣṇa lifted Govardhana Hill like an umbrella, raising it with His lotuslike beautiful hand to protect His associates, the denizens of Vraja, from the torrential rains sent by the angry Indra, King of the demigods. It is also at Govardhana Hill that Kṛṣṇa tends the cows with His cowherd friends, and there also He had His rendezvous with His most beloved Śrī Rādhā and engaged in loving pastimes with Her. Rādhā-kuṇḍa, at the foot of Govardhana, is superior to all because it is there that love of Kṛṣṇa overflows. Advanced devotees prefer to reside at Rādhā-kuṇḍa because this place is thesite of many memories of the eternal loving affairs between Kṛṣṇa and Rādhārāṇī (rati-vilāsa).

In Caitanya-caritāmṛta (Madhya-līlā) it is stated that when Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu first visited the area of Vrajabhūmi, He could not at first find the location of Rādhā-kuṇḍa. This means that Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu was actually searching for the exact location of Rādhā-kuṇḍa. Finally He found the holy spot, and there was a small pond there. He took His bath in that small pond and told His devotees that the actual Rādhā-kuṇḍa was situated there. Later the pond was excavated by Lord Caitanya’s devotees, headed first by the six Gosvāmīs, such as Rūpa and Raghunātha dāsa. Presently there is a large lake known as Rādhā-kuṇḍa there. Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī has given much stress to Rādhā-kuṇḍa because of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s desire to find it. 

Who, then, would give up Rādhā-kuṇḍa and try to reside elsewhere? No person with transcendental intelligence would do so. The importance ofRādhā-kuṇḍa, however, cannot be realized by other Vaiṣṇava sampradāyas, nor can persons uninterested in the devotional service of Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu understand the spiritual importance and divine nature of Rādhā-kuṇḍa. Thus Rādhā-kuṇḍa is mainly worshiped by the Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavas, the followers of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu.

Eight Reasons Why ISKCON Will Disappear

[PADA: We made few grammar corrections from the Spanish translation.]

Friday, October 21, 2016

Eight reasons why ISKCON will disappear.

With all alarm signals lit, the dying body (in Peru, Uruguay, Paraguay, Costa Rica, you choose the country) Prabhupada's movement is facing its last moments.

It is not an accident that someone becomes sick, especially if you have done everything possible so that everything goes wrong. 
ISKCON, with a doctorate in the field of deviation, is now facing a silent crisis which is way worse than the noisy crisis of 1986. And I say worse for one simple reason: in 1986 the GBC resolved to try to fix things; in this case, they may not do so.

The degree of blindness is so obvious, anyone (even a blind man) would realize that he is walking near a sewer. They have a sewer under their feet, but some do not perceive it is nauseating.

The problem of the properties. 

After the movement realized it can not have property in the ISKCON name (gurukuli trial, etc.), "trusted people" were required for all properties in their name. Result: there are places where these depositories act as owners or lend to pressure mechanisms to gain favors, prerequisites and influence. The result, often criminal, is that they can not be controlled, and the first golden rule of failure is true: "You can not trust the devotees."

The problem of transparency: 

Because you can not trust the devotees, much less can give them information, then, any opening up and revealing one's concern is a sign of weakness. Strength, obtained from behind the scenes private meetings and secrecy, shoots levels of suspicion to the fullest. Those innocent (assuming that they are) have the amazing dilemma of choosing who will be manipulated: He who is openly corrupt, or who keeps so many secrets that even his own mother can't trust him, because he will cover up the truth in a conspiracy of silence.

The second golden rule of failure is true: "Do not inform the devotees."

The problem of opening yourself up: 

Naturally, when you're immersed in a crisis of this kind, keep with people who share your goals and way of thinking, so nothing can change. That's common sense. In the movement should not exist so many discrepancies, at least regarding the important issue: who's in charge here? If those who think like you are not prepared, that it should be a well oiled machine, instead it becomes pandemonium. Prisoners of megalomania, full of oaths and submissions, the fresh air is synonymous with torture, or at least tortured minds. 

The result is obvious: good intentions, even with so-called deep inspiration of Prabhupada, are gaining the way to the Patalas. The third golden rule of failure is true: "Do not open up the game to those who think differently."

The problem of money: 

In this world, economic management is key. For that, only trusted people can handle it. What happens when those handling the silver are not trusted or trained? Let's look at the movement: the result is a fierce demonstration of the inability in power. Good intentions were never enough in the history of man. It came with a masochistic movement theory, denying all material qualification and carrying the meaning of confidence at a level that would envy the mafia itself. the fourth law of failure is true: "You have to give money to anyone who gives guarantee of subordination."

The problem of responsibility: 

We all know at least a number of egregious scandals where almost everyone was complicit and responsible. The lesson given was clear: if you're with us, you are beyond good and evil. This is a paradise for those who are quick to offer their hands of support, but put a question on the table: Who is responsible for the disaster? Gentlemen, it was possible to design a horizontal structure where no influences (huge), but no final responsibilities. Nobody will pay the piper because the fabric is so corrupt that if something is obviously bad, it's because your eyes are contaminated. The fifth law of failure is true: "We are personalistic, but when it comes to fixing corruption, we are totally mayavadis" and so we ignore the problems, and think we should meditate on the void.

The problem of leadership: 

Put a stop to this problem requires a steady hand. Clearly, all combined hands GBC absolutely can not change this at present: if not, they would have already done that in the past. It is not uncommon to see that countries with dictatorial streak in their genes (which were part of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact) and those who love the monarchical submission (India) are the fastest growing numbers of devotees. 

They will not question what is going on around them. In the West, thanks to Plato, this toad is not swallowing just anything. It is for this reason that the thing does not grow or grow in these parts. The sixth law of failure is true: "Never question your position or your reality Everything is a plan of Krishna, and the problem is that you do not realize that."

The philosophical problem: 

Explain the Lord's instructions, resolve the dilemmas of life, things are obviously necessary. If one should devote more time to explain how this disaster is an oasis of compassion, or null interpersonal reasons are the key to a happy society, or promote the most grotesque, medieval and bizarre visions as a panacea for the excited man is that there is no clear direction to take. The lack of update is notorious because of the lack of intelligence to apply learning; study because the system does not seek the freedom of the individual, but submission. 

It is a Trinad api sunicena in the sickest possible aspect. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu would use Sudarsana Chakra with all these people if it were in His manifest pastimes. the seventh law of failure is true: "When it comes to the goal, no contemplations, any argument applies."

The spiritual problem: 

If someone appears here to seek God with everything, find it a Persian market, where your wallet will show what kind of karma is. Finding Krishna between burgers, books, saris or bracelets is not the kind of strategy that will guarantee success. Go to the temple in your area, and see how many new devotees there per year. Consider those who have ceased to be devotees, and the number of classes that have occurred. Sumen, subtract, divide and multiply (zero). So they make a few people, they lose a few people, and nothing gets to prosper. 

The result indicates that not only do we have sick spiritual people, but we generate antibodies in them. The eighth law of failure is true: "I do not care about your problems, just give me your money and go."

This drama has no solution. It like the Titanic, it would take only minutes to be finished sinking. The big problem is that too long until Kalki appears. And just in case I say it clearly: there is no institution or related to Vaishnavism substitute that is free of these points. Vaishnavism needs, more than ever, transparent and democratic process to ensure their survival strategies.

ISKCON only avoids criticizing any approach to this solution. With this, we remain a medium level planet without real access to the Supreme Lord. There will be much orthodoxy as blind followers. And on blindness, it is already clear who can not see, and those who do not want to see.
