Why child abuse in ISKCON will never stop (anonymous)

[PADA: Child abuse -- is one of a number of abuses, and it another feature of exploiting in general. And the GBC's "guru system" has been proven to have empowered and facilitated that process on many levels by orchestrating the exploiting of: brahmanas, women, children and cows, and / or the vulnerable overall. This devotee writer has no faith that ISKCON can be recovered. Maybe he is right. 

Of course if the actual child abuse process cannot really be stopped fully, then ISKCON will die out all by itself because gradually people will refuse to participate. This is basically what happened in the Gaudiya Matha, people could not tolerate their exploiting and abusive leaders, so their program became nearly an empty ghost town. 

ISKCON certainly cannot be repaired easily in its present state. 

And he furthermore thinks that the GBC's guru's enablers, hangers on, leaders on payroll, assorted cheer leaders, sycophants, and various levels of "rank and file" do NOT have much interest in fixing this mess either. OK there are some sincere people in and around ISKCON, but they have little real powers to change events at this point. 

At the same time, we are making at least some inroads into the ISKCON rank and file gradually, because more and more of them want to emphasize the worship of Srila Prabhupada, and read his original books and so forth. At best, its a reform in slow motion, emphasis on slow. 

Anyway, the slow but steady win in the end. Hopefully, some sort of gradual and genuine reform will be the end result. It certainly does not look very hopeful to many folks at this point, thus there is still an exodus of sincere people out of the institution. At least the good news is -- we snag a few of them here and there into our Prabhupadanuga process. ys pd]

Why child abuse in ISKCON will never stop

Hare Krsna,

It is perfectly clear to most readers (or should be), that ISKCON has not functioned as a spiritually valid organization since Srila Prabhupada left. The list of deviations and crimes committed, primarily by its leaders, are extensive. Many such crimes have been well documented. We also know that the Gaudiya Math suffered a similar fate and history.

When the founders of the above-mentioned institutions were present they were able to keep the most dangerous of these deviants from completely compromising their respective institutions. But, after their disappearances, it really became a free for all.

For both these societies, one of the very worst spiritual crimes committed by the misleadership was when the leading demons created the apasiddhantic guru-voting system - where mundane men become authorized 'as good as God' gurus. The Gaudiya Math also had these competing 'God men,' but in a slightly different mundane-acarya format. Same stuff in a different bottle. By 'legislating divinity,' such institutions provide a cover sufficient to fool the general masses and which thereby allow for the leading elites to engage in all sorts of spiritual and material criminal activities. The institution thus becomes a sanctuary for criminals. This behaviour is part and parcel of such modern religious institutions, as confirmed by Srila Bhakltisiddhanta Sarasvati:

"The churches have always proved the staunchest upholders of the grossest form of worldliness from which even the worst of non-ecclesiastical criminals are found to recoil."

(Excerpted from the essay "Putana" printed in the January 1932 edition of The Harmonist, or Sree Sajjanatoshani)

Other primary evidence of spiritually criminal activities in ISKCON include allowing unlimited changes to the Founder-acarya's books and the incorporation of the body of the GBC. That the 'Pledge of Allegiance,' which Srila Prabhupda wrote, has been altered to promote the artificial authority of the GBC over its Founder-acarya, is no surprise. The GBC bylaws are additional evidence of this.

So the GBC have since led Srila Prabhupda's movement into an apasiddhantic slide ever since 1977, and are taking all its ‘members’ along with it. Everyone who considers themselves part of this current unbonafide 'ISKCON,' at any and all levels, is implicated in these crimes to varying degrees. All in all it simply amounts to mass guru aparadha by everyone involved, from the smallest peon to the biggest charlatan.

The systemic and extensive child abuse we have seen and still see in ISKCON, as well as the subsequent cover up and protection of the elite abusers, continues year after year. This is exhibited by the latest of Hryananda's and now Dhira Govinda’s demoniac and "gutless wonder" weak responses.

Unfortunately, 'ISKCON (rank and file) members' are party to these crimes, as they function to prop up and over-glorify these leaders no end. And then one wonders where such demon leaders get their false egos, which in turn encourages them to continue abusing victims of child abuse?

It is from the rank and file themselves.

Sure, these demon leaders may have been possessed of such rampant arrogance and conceit at conception, yet now all ISKCON members engage in the constant over-glorification of these men and women (such as Laxmimoni, Urmila and Malati), which only serves to feed these monsters their unlimited desires for name and fame, profit, adoration and distinction.

The exploitation of children by these men and women and the voting-in-of-guru systems go hand in hand. Fanning the flames of unrestricted false ego in turn creates a lack of empathy and compassion and continued extreme narcissism. These false egos need to be constantly fed, and what (whom) is the necessary fuel to feed these fires? It comes in the form of the weakest and most vulnerable - the children. The easiest of prey. 

And of course, the ISKCON schools produce the primary fodder for these gurus false egos. Laxmimoni was one who helped to serve these children to her God brothers on a platter, as do all other ISKCON educators, intentionally or not. Urmila is another who has operated to funnel children to her God brothers' false egos for years via the ISKCON education system. She is thus only trying to get her payback in the form of guruship herself, what she thinks she is owed by the system.

It is also well-known that the CPO-convicted child abuser, Sri Radhe, Indradyumna's disciple and previous Principal of Sri Anasuya Vidyalaya (what a pretentious name!) Mayapur, is another insane person who used these girls as her personal slaves. Firsthand accounts of the extensive abuse were proven and showed that the school was essentially a feeder school for Indradyumna, who requires a constant stream of young ladies (the younger you get them the better) to join his ‘preaching program’ (read: harem), to satisfy his own lust for mundane enjoyment, those of his lusty male followers and the lusty public. 

That Sri Radhe was an unstable emotional manipulator using young girls for her own purposes was well known to Indradyumna, who happily took these kids as his own disciples in due course. They had thus been well-trained to comply. and became conditioned to being exploited. Sri Radhe was also given that prime posting after having an affair with Bhakti Vidya Purna, the co-creator of that entire bogus evil ‘educational system’ and long time creator/ supervisor of abusive school systems in the holy dham. One can also suppose that Sri Radhe 'jumped the gun' and became a 'defacto guru' prior to going through the proper ISKCON voting channels, and hence part of her slap-down was political. No one likes an upstart!

Like Sri Radhe, Laxmimoni is another rampant false ego individual who was overworshiped. The girls she abused and was engaged to ‘look after’ became disciples of her God brothers. She now just wants what she believes is also her ‘God-given right’ - guruship. Hrdayananda loves her, as he sees that rampant false ego that she possesses, in himself, yet in female form. These types stick together, all bodily differences aside. In fact, ISKCON’s gay gurus have that same narcissism. It is all equal opportunity for narcissists at ISKCON’s top end. No discrimination up there.

ISKCON as it stands will never rid itself of child abuse, simply because it legitimises and incorporates into its entire identity the very thing that creates a sanctuary for child abusers - the 'divine right of kings,' the bogus guru-voting system. Without such a system, children have a better chance of being protected and cared for properly. Yet that is unlikely to happen as 'ISKCON' now is simply an extension of Kali. It’s primary purpose is exploitation of others.

Neither should people ever look to 'improving ISKCON' in the realm of child protection, or in any other area. It is a failed institution and will never be useful again. As Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati further states in his essay:

"The idea of an organised church in an intelligible form, indeed, marks the close of the living spiritual movement. The great ecclesiastical establishments are the dikes and the dams to retain the current that cannot be held by any such contrivances. They, indeed, indicate a desire on the part of the masses to exploit a spiritual movement for their own purpose. They also unmistakably indicate the end of the absolute and unconventional guidance of the bona-fide spiritual teacher. The people of this world understand preventive systems, they have no idea at all of the unprevented positive eternal life. Neither can there be any earthy contrivance for the permanent preservation of the life eternal on this mundane plane on the popular scale.

Those are, therefore, greatly mistaken who are disposed to look forward to the amelioration of the worldly state in any worldly sense from the worldly success of any really spiritual movement. It is these worldly aspirants who become the patrons of the mischievous race of the pseudo-teachers of religion, the Putanas, whose congenial function is to stifle the theistic disposition at the very moment of its suspected appearance. But the real theistic disposition can never be stifled by the efforts of those Putanas. The Putanas have power only over the atheist. It is a thankless but salutary task which they perform for the benefit of their unwilling victims."

Kali Yuga is an age where the demons are running things, including religious organizations. They will continue to abuse children, if not under the ISKCON banner, then under another similar banner. Those who wish to protect their children and their own spiritual lives, would do well to remove themselves from 'ISKCON,' as well as all from those who claim to be its 'members.' All such similar fake spiritual institutions should be strictly avoided for one's spiritual health.
