Past and current GBC resolutions site

Seems that lately difficulties with gurus are kept as a secret as often as possible. However, an ISKCON guru is a public figure. According to the definition, a public figure is a person such as a politician, celebrity, or religious leader, who has a certain social position within a certain scope and a significant influence and so is often widely concerned by the public, can benefit enormously from society, and is closely related to public interests in society. Thus people in general have a right to know about the status of ISKCON gurus.

317: Regarding Bhakti Visrambha Madhava Swami

Whereas the GBC Executive Committee suspended Bhakti Visrambha Madhava Swami as an initiating guru effective May 8, 2017 due to his inappropriate and erratic behavior; Whereas after meeting with Maharaja on February 8 2018, the GBC Body has decided that existing restrictions on him should be continued;
Whereas the GBC is the well-wisher of Maharaja and recognizes that he is not well and needs our support as well as appropriate boundaries;


The existing restrictions that Bhakti Visrambha Madhava Swami shall not initiate or receive any public worship will continue indefinitely or until further review by the GBC.

In addition, Maharaja is not allowed to give any kind of formal class or speak as a representative of ISKCON at any ISKCON Temple or ISKCON related program.
We further advise and direct Maharaja to reside at the ISKCON Vrindavan Community, where he has ashram facilities, or at the ISKCON Juhu Temple, where the leaders are happy to accommodate Maharaja's stay.

A letter explaining the GBC's concerns and recommendations about Maharaja's health and status, as well as the well-being of his disciples, will also be distributed.
