Devaki Dasi's "Roots of Spiritual Culture"

Devaki devi dasi was born in Germany in 1958 and after a long journey of searching, joined ISKCON in Sydney, Australia in 1985. She spent four years in the Sydney brahmacharini ashrama, learning the basics of devotional life. She took initiation from Bhavananda Prabhu and later re-initiation from Prabhavisnu Prabhu. She is now a disciple of His Holiness Niranjana Swami.

[PADA: Sounds good theoretically, except the "root" of all spiritual culture is to worship Krishna exclusively via media the bona fide acharya. Apparently this Devaki lady has had three GBC gurus. As we all know ... there is an epidemic of failing in their guru sabha. Why would a society where their "messiahs from heaven" are falling down left, right and center -- be considered a spiritual culture? Srila Prabhupada would say this is a society of the cheaters and the cheated. 

Their gurus are falling into illicit sex, assorted scandals if not assisting criminal regimes. Yep. Its a mundane hodge podge of cheating, self-evidently. So lets say we wanted to start discussing a society based on love, trust and connecting honestly to others etc.? We should start out by saying that worship of deviants, debauchees and cheaters as gurus creates a society of illusion, deviation, paranoid delusions, and no small amount of factions, and sometimes crimes, violence and murders -- as occurs in that so-called society. How can we create a spiritual culture in that environment?  

To her credit, Devaki has said some positive things about our idea of emphasis on Srila Prabhupada. Its a start, but does not fully address the root issue, cheating guru programs need to be dismantled and removed from ISKCON if we are to have a society that functions on the spiritual culture platform. ys pd]

  1. Yes, she talks about how we can develop love, trust and taking shelter etc., but the shelter she herself has accepted is false. Its a big lie that conditioned souls are able to be worshiped as acharyas, hence her being diverted to three gurus.

    How can a society develop love and trust among the citizens, when the same citizens love, trust and worship bogus people posing as its messiahs, and those messiahs keep being exposed as frauds? Fraud is the foundation of the society?

    She still does not understand, she is promoting false shelter, false love, false worship and lies that conditioned souls can be worshiped as the successors to God, then she wonders why there is a a lack of love and trust, when she is passing out counterfeit worship, love and trust herself? ys pd
