BBTI Considers "More Book Editing" (from KD)

KD: BBTI is considering removing "controversial statements" from Prabhupada's  Srimad Bhagavatam. The other day I was in the room with the book distribution Minister Vijay prabhu, who hosts that seminar here in Mayapur. The talk was about the editing of Prabhupada's books, and Vijay prabhu said that at least the Bhagavatam was okay, and the host, a senior american devotee, said that he begged to differ on that opinion.

Then he told us that he had been speaking to Dravida prabhu who had told him that the BBTI had been considering removing all of Prabhupada's "controversial statements" about women from the Bhagavatam for some time, and that it seemed that the time was getting close for them to actually do it. Only time will tell if they will actually do so.


[PADA: Yes, well we expected further changes, its just a question of how they will rationalized making further changes. Meanwhile, it seems there is no one actually dedicated to re-making all original books among the GBC's elite? If there is someone who is promoting that process, who is that? We keep hearing "well not everyone agrees to the changes," fine, but who are those who are objecting? And where exactly can we find their writings of protest etc.? 

At the same time, Jayadvaita swami (Jay Israel) has been saying their GBC guru parampara contains illicit sex with men, women and children. But that is not embarrassing to be stated? The books of the acharya are an embarrassment, but saying that acharyas and messiahs from heaven are poking everything in the house except maybe the family goat, that is fine with the current GBC's folks? Or what?  

Meanwhile our pals like Ajit Krishna, Bhakta Torben, Hanuman Croatia etc. are infuriated we are not surrendering to their "bona fide guru parampara," ok the same people who say acharyas are often debauchees, and we need to re-edit all the books. We need to surrender to the process that is making debauchees into acharyas, and they are re-editing the books? And the ritviks are bogus, because they are protesting these bogus out croppings? ys pd]

Hanuman Croatia "Cannot Comment" On Abuse Issue?

https://lastingimpression.info/cost-of-silence-ii/

PADA: "The Cost of Silence II" addresses the epidemic of child abuse in ISKCON. And it cites particular leaders like Bhakti Vikas Swami as being among those who have been silent, and still are silent, by not replying to Sanaka's questions to BVKS. Now Hanuman Croatia says there is no need to comment on this issue? 

Its well known that Mayapura has been a big player in the abuse problem, along with its leaders being implicated in the regime like Bhavananda, Hari Sauri, Jayapataka, Nitai Chanda swami, Satadhanya, Dahnurdar, and many others. 
And yet Bhakti Vikas swami has become the dedicated "sannyasa disciple of Jayapataka swami" and is often seen smiling and patting JPS on the back as if he is some sort of hero, at Mayapura. In actuality, Jayapataka is one of the original founder fathers of the illicit sex with men, women and children guru parampara. 



Molester messiah lover's club
  
Then, Hanuman Croatia says that Bhakti Vikas swami, one of the vociferous hand maidens of the child abuse regime, is an example of a bona fide guru. BVKS is bona fide because he is "voted in" to the illicit sex guru's regime, which is banning, beating, molesting, suing and assassinating people? 



Elephant-pada

And BVKS did not notice that while children reported not being fed sufficient food, meanwhile his "sannyasa guru" was eating enough food to feed four elephants? And JPS ballooned up to such a huge size and weight, then he had a massive stroke which has partially paralyzed him for the rest of his life? 

And JPS program has been spending an alleged $20,000,000 suing the ritviks, instead of paying off the victims of child abuse in ISKCON? Rather JPS declares ISKCON North America bankrupt so he can avoid paying victims. All that after JPS program had to be sued for $400,000,000 for the abuse, which has cost ISKCON millions and millions of dollars. And this is our "sannyasa guru"? 

And some JPS disciples angrily wrote to PADA, "you Mr. bogus PADA have cost the GBC over $100,000,000 by helping various lawsuits." OK, so we should allow child abuse and not have it opposed? Same argument as the Sanat / Mukunda / Prahlad / HKC Jaipura folks, oh boo hoo, we are going to lose some of our precious shekels over here, lets toss the children into a wood chipper so we can save our precious dollars $$$$! OK do we worship dollars here? They worship dollars, Srila Prabhupada says, we need to worship these children.  

And the real reason ISKCON North America went bankrupt is, when we alerted JPS ilk to the abuse, he had us banned, removed from the ISKCON property, and then his program orchestrated banning, beatings, bogus lawsuits and even murders of our associates. And I would have been murdered without the assistance of the local police and the FBI, who arrested the GBC's hit man that was "doing surveillance" on me. And this is the program BVKS is the "sannyasa disciple" of? 

A mother just wrote to tell me she was very naive sending her children to the GBC's schools. And she wishes every day she had to do it over again, and not send he children to the JPS "guru school" program. She says these JPS / BVKS people "betrayed me and my children worse than anyone else on the planet ever could have." And this is the program Hanuman Croatia supports, and when its exposed that his program is bogus, he suddenly "cannot comment"? 

This mother says the karmi "slaughterhouse education system" is ten million percent better than the JPS / BVKS education department, and this is Hanuman's example of a bona fide guru process? And isn't the real reason Hanuman Croatia dislikes the ritviks is because, we reported the child abuse issue, book changes issue, poison issue, and other crimes coming from his "bona fide guru parampara"?


BVKS does not even reply to why this is STILL allowed?

OK Hanuman Croatia cannot comment because, he is part of the conspiracy of silence. 

Told ya! ys pd

The Pastime of Kubja and Krishna (Srila Prabhupada)


"...the moon does not withhold its shining from the courtyard of a crooked person. Similarly, Kṛṣṇa's transcendental mercy is never denied to anyone..."
-----
"When Kṛṣṇa saw that Kubjā was hesitating to come before Him, He immediately caught hold of her hand..."
-----

"Lord Kṛṣṇa then decided to go to the house of Kubjā, the hunchback woman who had pleased Him by offering Him sandalwood when He was entering the city of Mathurā. As stated in the Bhagavad-gītā, Kṛṣṇa always tries to please His devotees, and the devotees try to please Kṛṣṇa. As the devotees always think of Kṛṣṇa within their hearts, so Kṛṣṇa also thinks of His devotees within Himself. When Kubjā was converted into a beautiful society girl, she wanted Kṛṣṇa to come to her place so that she could try to receive and worship Him in her own way. 

Society girls generally try to satisfy their clients by offering their bodies to the men to enjoy. But this society girl, Kubjā, was actually captivated by a lust to satisfy her senses with Kṛṣṇa. When Kṛṣṇa desired to go to the house of Kubjā, He certainly had no desire for sense gratification. 

By supplying the sandalwood pulp to Kṛṣṇa, Kubjā had already satisfied His senses. On the plea of her sense gratification, He decided to go to her house, not actually for sense gratification, but to turn her into a pure devotee. Kṛṣṇa is always served by many thousands of goddesses of fortune; therefore He has no need to satisfy His senses by going to a society girl. 

But as He is kind to everyone, He decided to go there. It is said that the moon does not withhold its shining from the courtyard of a crooked person. Similarly, Kṛṣṇa's transcendental mercy is never denied to anyone, whether one has rendered service unto Him through lust, anger, fear or pure love. In the Caitanya-caritāmṛta it is stated that if one wants to serve Kṛṣṇa and at the same time wants to satisfy his own lusty desires, Kṛṣṇa will handle it so that the devotee forgets his lusty desire and becomes fully purified and constantly engaged in the service of the Lord.

In order to fulfill His past promise, Kṛṣṇa, along with Uddhava, went to the house of Kubjā. When Kṛṣṇa reached her house, He saw that it was completely decorated in a way to excite the lusty desires of a man. This suggests that there were many nude pictures, on top of which were canopies and flags embroidered with pearl necklaces, along with comfortable beds and cushioned chairs. The rooms were provided with flower garlands and were nicely scented with incense and sprinkled with scented water. And the rooms were illuminated by nice lamps.

When Kubjā saw that Lord Kṛṣṇa had come to her house in order to fulfill His promised visit, she immediately got up from the chair to receive Him. Accompanied by her many girl friends, she began to talk with Him with great respect and honor. After offering Him a nice place to sit, she worshiped Lord Kṛṣṇa in a manner just suitable to her position. Uddhava was similarly received by Kubjā and her girl friends, but he was not on an equal level with Kṛṣṇa, and he simply sat down on the floor.

Without wasting time, as one does in such situations, Kṛṣṇa entered the bedroom of Kubjā. In the meantime, Kubjā took her bath and smeared her body with sandalwood pulp. She dressed herself with nice garments, valuable jewelry, ornaments and flower garlands. Chewing betel nut and other intoxicating eatables and spraying herself with scents, she appeared before Kṛṣṇa. Her smiling glance and moving eyes were full of feminine bashfulness as she stood gracefully before Lord Kṛṣṇa, who is known as Mādhava, the husband of the goddess of fortune.

When Kṛṣṇa saw that Kubjā was hesitating to come before Him, He immediately caught hold of her hand, which was decorated with bangles. With great affection, He dragged her beside Him and made her sit by His side. Simply by having previously supplied pulp of sandalwood to the Supreme Lord, Kṛṣṇa, Kubjā became free from all sinful reactions and eligible to enjoy with Him. She then took Kṛṣṇa's lotus feet and placed them on her breasts, which were burning with the blazing fire of lust. 

By smelling the fragrance of Kṛṣṇa's lotus feet, she immediately became relieved of all lusty desires. She was thus allowed to embrace Kṛṣṇa with her two arms and thus mitigate her long-cherished desire to have Kṛṣṇa as a visitor in her house."

Global "Nuclear Winter" from India / Pakistan Nukes (Brian Toon Video)




PADA: Yikes Pilgrims! Yep, Bhagavad Gita is correct, the auras can make a destructive process that kills people, not so much a process to make people live. OK! Srila Prabhupada said that Lord Chaitanya's Movement could stop that destruction from happening.

But! What then happens when the bogus GBC's exile the soldiers in Lord Chaitanya's army? And then they curtail, harm, halt, oppress, diminish, discredit, pollute, stop, and bankrupt His movement? And worse, they change Lord Chaitanya's books, cause FBI raids on His temples, orchestrate molesting and murders and other crimes etc., and essentially -- destroy His movement? And thus one woman writes to PADA "you are right, the GBC were too busy orchestrating banning, beating, molesting, suing and orchestrating murders to conduct the mission." Well that makes them sort of like background causes for the catastrophic result in human society, 


... which is why their karma is un-imaginably bad. ys pd    

TRANSLATION

Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world.

Cost of Silence II (Sanaka Rsi about compromised ISKCON GBC leaders)




http://krishna1008.blogspot.com/2017/05/sanaka-rsi-replies-bhakti-vikas-swami.html

SR: Almost two years ago the Cost of Silence documentary covered the extensive child abuse, both historic and current, that has plagued the the Hare Krishna movement, and the inadequate initiative of ISKCON’s leadership to tackle this pandemic.

Part Two looks at what’s happened since. How the the leadership responded to address this pervasive problem.

When the Cost of Silence first came out I hoped that raising awareness on the extent of the child abuse problem in ISKCON would motivate the devotee community to give careful consideration to the issue, and inspire some constructive changes; I never imagined there would be a need for a follow up…

Over the years I have repeatedly observed the GBC make decisions that were detrimental for child protection. But some recent developments that have unfolded in the last two years highlight the extent of their willful disregard for the plight of the children. Two years ago, it may have been still possible to give them the benefit of the doubt that they didn’t know the full extent of the child abuse problem. 


That perhaps they had been so busy and distracted with their cumbersome managerial responsibilities that the welfare of children had slipped out of their sphere of awareness... Unfortunately, today it is no longer possible to afford them this benefit.

As you watch the Cost of Silence II, you will see how the GBC have not only failed in their duty to protect the children, but also how they have gone a step further and knowingly placed them in harms way…

Click here to watch the Cost of Silence II.


[PADA: Yes, "silence" of child abuse is a bad idea, because it facilitates and enables the abuse. For example, Mukunda UK and Prahlad das' best pal Sanat told me he knew "every single kid was molested" in Satsvarupa's school, but he did not ever report it to the police. And since Sanat's wife was a teacher there, they had first hand knowledge this was going on. They also did nothing we can see to notify the other ISKCON devotee parents of this problem. So this is simply one example of how these things were being covered up, by the leaders and their hand maiden servants. Multiply this by hundreds of cases of cover up, and we can see a pattern which Sanaka Rsi calls "the tip of the iceberg."

Even recently Prahlad was complaining that I was being cruel to his child abuse cover up agenda pal Sanat. Yep! The child molester lover's club has many tentacles on the ISKCON society, and that is what Sanaka rsi is also basically saying here. 

And! Often not reported to the authorities. If ever! Yep, we have to save the leaders like SDG from prosecution. Worse! As soon as some GBC folks and the Sanat folks found out hundreds of kids were being pulled from their molester guru process after 1997, they were infuriated by that process as well. What, you mean our molester regime is being dismantled in some areas? And people are still telling me various GBC leaders and their hand maidens like Sanat are the good guys. You mean to say, the SAME people who cover up child abuse, and are upset to see hundreds of kids liberated from that process, are the good guys? 

Then we wonder why there is a problem? And their agenda buried a sexual predator and a porno swami in holy dham samadhis, and people are upset we are exposing that process too. Really? And guys like Muralivadaka, Laxmimoni, Dhanurdara, Nitai Chanda, Bhavananda etc. are always seeming to be welcomed -- as our folks are banned?

So it appears that leaders like Satsvarupa, many other GBC, many of their followers, indeed so many people apparently knew there was a problem. But no one took it to the authorities? A conspiracy for sure. Hand maidens of the problem. Or what?

OK the co-conspirators were silent, at best. And some of these type guys are STILL coming forward saying they are in favor of the GBC's (the cover up agenda) and not in favor of our expose process, so its simple -- they are STILL with the GBC's folks agenda. Yes its the same agenda -- plain and simple. There has been a conspiracy of silence, correct. Yet there has been another side to this, jack boots to the head of anyone exposing this issue, that is way worse than silence.


And thus some of these guys are not only "not silent" they are the most vociferous attackers of those of us who addressed the molesting issue. So that is not silence, that is defending the evil doers. As for the GBC itself, well all we have to do is look how they treated me and Sulochana ilk for complaining about the molesting, our party faced banning, beating, suing, and assassinating. How did you guess, Sanat / Mukunda / Prahlad / HKC Jaipur folks complained that we were giving Sulochana a can of beans with our "contaminated money." Yep, lets starve Sulochana of funds, or anyone who complains about their abuse process. That is worse than silence, that is actively supporting the agenda?  


In any case! That is not silence either? 


Nope, banning, beating, suing and killing people who oppose their molester agenda is an active process of defending that agenda. And GBC guru folks and their allies like Sanat / Mukunda / Prahlad (Paul Coats UK) / HKC Jaipur etc. will also stomp their giant jack boots on anyone who opposes their molester guru process and agenda, because silence is not their only real problem, its their vehement attacks on anyone who addresses their molester infrastructure agenda. 


Anyway, more people are waking up in ISKCON, Catholic Church, and more and more famous singers, movie stars etc. are being exposed as predators and etc., its all coming out, that is what we intended to see, and we are seeing it more and more. ys pd]


PS: As for Hanuman Croatia, come on, you mean to say Bhakti Vikas did not know about this agenda? ys pd




    



Russia ISKCON Leaders Video on the Poison Issue

Hare Krishna Puranjana Prabhu. We have a new wave in Russia from the official leaders, they are trying to refute the poisoning of Prabhupada issue and they created a 30 minute video. Before that, they tried to refute the editing changes and distortion of the books. 

They called their new video about Prabhupada poisoning, "Prabhupada Poisoning. A Case That Will Never Go to Court. Part 1." I thought. I heard that the case is still sued? Is it so? Their attempts to disprove Prabhupada’s poisoning has led to another insult against Prabhupada. 

They translated the word dullness as stupidity and and got a stupid comment instead dullness concept. Even some leaders who hold on to official power have written to complain about it. In other words, their own official video is defective according to, themselves. 

PADA: Yes, they also said there was no child molesting because it was not going to court. The court is their authority? Then when the molesting issue went to court, they complained, why are people taking us to court? That means, the karmi court decides what is true and not true. That means, meat eaters are their authority. Yes, they are saying insulting things all the time starting with, deviants are commonly God's guru and messiah successors.

Anyway they are worried, that is a sign we are making progress. What always amazes us is that so many people, including a lot of so-called ritviks, keep saying "no one listens to PADA." Right, and that is why everyone is talking about the bogus gurus, the book changes, the molesting issue, and / or the poison issue, all the things we exposed the whole while. Anyway, the poison issue may or may not go to court, and worse -- India is famous for not prosecuting bogus gurus, its not something that determines what is bona fide and what is not. 

Krishna Kant of the IRM also said that the poison issue has to be determined by the meat eating karmi judges. He admits he is surrendered to the karmis, and that is why he cannot fully get a program going and etc. Surrendering to the karmis is not going to get a lot of followers among the devotees. 

Anyway, the Russian authority is now having to explain the poison complaint, but there is no good explanation, its that simple. ys pd

Discussion About Book Changes (Keeping it Old School)


RD: Changing Prabhupada's books cover 5 areas of consideration: 

1) a change of meaning - from those intended by Prabhupada - and the syntax of Prabhupada's flow of expression; 

2) a change in tone and voice from Prabhupada's own; 

3) a change of persona and aesthetics in look and feel of the book itself; 

4) change of experience for the reader. Most seem to say yes on all 4 accounts. Interested to hear your own thoughts. The remaining question is if Prabhupada would approve any of these - what to speak of all of them. Many are finding it quite a strenuous and extraordinary leap to make. 

5) The 5th area is if the full potency of Prabhupada's shakti is still represented or how much it's compromised. At that point, it would seem the argument is already lost. However, there is a case to be made that given its kali-yoga, they still offer a far greater impact as compared to having nothing of Prabhupada's books. 

It has that ring of a kali-yuga kind of 'make-do.' 

M Dasi: I think they should leave his books alone. Look what happened with the Bible. It's been changed. There are new versions of it. You can Google it. It's not my area of expertise but a vastly well- known fact. 

PADA: First of all, a person who says that Krishna's guru successors are often falling into illicit sex with men, women and children -- should not even be allowed into any ISKCON temples, much less be made the primary editor of any publications. ys pd 

RD: I had no idea you would have responded with this. lol. 

MD: It's alright, PADA has absolutely no evidence to prove anything, the best thing is not to respond to Ritviks, in the U.K. we have a Pundit God brother, he says what they say isn't backed up by sastra and the tradition of sastra. 

PADA: Illicit sex acharyas is not in our tradition.

GTD: Is man lead by words of men or the love of the spirit? 

P Devi Dasi: I agree with your first 5. I understand your comment, I'd add: for me it was never a question of whether these new books make devotees, or even attract people - it was about following Prabhupada's instructions. Or rather, to stop following them. Thanks for letting me say this. 

RD: Oh my, that would of course be the #1 issue. Prabhupada repeatedly and specifically requested against it. loll. 

JD: I’m not advocating either way here, but the first two items you’ve posted seem to neglect that there were people editing to begin with. So a phrase like “the blessed lord said” (a super king James biblical reference) really comes from that exchange and isn’t “native” (for lack of a better word in my minuscule imagination) to Srila Prabhupada’s own. 

V Das: The difference is -- Srila Prabhupada approved of wording like that. Srila Prabhupada wanted it there. It was his style. We shouldn't change his style.

NKD: Sober, honest and courageous words. Happy to see and hard to disagree.

RD: A pleasant surprise to see u here. Of course, it would be Prabhupada related post to get u to speak up. 

AR: I did a comparison back in 1991 ... it’s way different. I couldn’t believe the watered down version of the Sanskrit words meanings chosen. Real talk, it is not the same. When that happened, other Vaisnavas start doing their own show bottle versions too. Then started publishing from other book companies. I was like... it felt eerie and thought that anybody could do it, now. Meaning so many people getting lost. 

PADA: Yes, so many "new" editions are coming along due to the original sin, the process of changing given by the bogus GBC cadre. This has emboldened people like Purujit and his pals to cite Jayadvaita's rationales to write their own editions of the books too. Naturally, the sincere Prabhupadanugas want to use the original edition books that the acharya uses himself, lectures from, has printed, and so on and so forth. The good news is, most people have rejected all these "newly edited" versions and they now want original versions. Some book distributors told me they stopped doing books as soon as they could not distribute originals, this is hampering the preaching of the Krishna religion. Was that the plan of the bogus GBC all along?  

WK: Recently Krsna revealed something to me, so simple to understand. Regarding editing making changes to Srila Prabhupada's books. I wanted to share this experience. Antonio a maintenance worker for our complex, came to do a repair. Whenever he comes to my home, he always initiate s intelligent conversation about our movement. He came to America from El Salvador the same year Srila Prabhupada came to America. 

He considers this his good fortune. On this visit Antonio ask me. How, do we really know what God looks like, and how many times they have changed the Bible. How do we know the truth. My natural response, and I was grateful to speak this rare and unique truth. As I answered him, I realized once again the true value of words spoken by a pure devotee, unchanged, uncontaminated. Handed down through the disciplic succession. 

And that's how we know who Krsna is, where He lives and what he looks like. Lord Krsna spoke the words that Srila Prabhupad translated, and the paintings were guided by the same pure force. So understanding the importance of not changing anything, guarding the purity is as important as anything given to us in our care. Because I believe this instruction wholeheartedly, I was able to speak this truth to another jiva soul (Antonio). Who understood the importance, and this simple point. I was blown away how easy he understood without any argument. The look on his face of relief, to come in contact with truth. 

A feeling that echos to my own good fortune. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada. 

G Dasi: Great answer and most of all your clear faith came through. 

KR Dasi: The GBC is taking note of how the Vatican became so powerful and overpowering over the mass of people. They changed Jesus's teachings, got rid of all the women ... and the Goddess ..... then they buggered the kids and each other behind closed doors, whilst pretending to be Guru's who could lead people beyond their suffering. Meanwhilst, pocketing a pretty penny. It's a disgrace. They say we should believe word for word the things Srila Prabhuapda spoke... yet they always change his words. They are hypocrites. Srila Prabhupada would slap them if he saw how far they have gone from the truth. 

PADA: Yes, when we came out and said that changing the books is a major deviation in the early 1980s, most people argued with us at the time and said that this is a bona fide "GBC approved program," and thus we should not protest. Well fast forward to now, and it is clear the tide is turning, more people than ever want originals. 

Its also clear to a lot of people that the GBC has become a corrupt institution, which is why Srila Prabhupada said -- please make sure they do not turn my mission into another Gaudiya Math or Catholic Church. Yes, when so many devotees object to the GBC's process, we can judge by the result to see its not working, not acceptable, and its upsetting the Vaishnavas and etc. 

Same thing with our friends who keep copying and pasting a 1997 lawsuit all over the universe, saying this lawsuit should never be read by anyone. Fine except, they want to personally ensure that everyone in the universe reads it? And they are thus the exclusive readers, advertisers and publishers of that document for the past 20 years now. 

And the result is, they are not making devotees, temples, programs, book printing and so on --  unlike those of us who have better things to do, like preach about Krishna. Did I forget to mention, they also object to many of these successful preaching efforts? Yes, do not listen to Srila Prabhupada, listen to us and our publishing of defective documents, and folks like GBC's lover's club leader Bhakta das and etc. 

Simple thing, we can judge by the result. 

Of course some ISKCON victims have told me, the real reason folks objected to the lawsuit is -- they are angry their program of banning, beating, molesting, suing, and murdering vaishnavas has been de-funded, exposed and minimized, and now it turns out -- their book changing program is also being de-funded. Oh boo hoo! Anyway, we are making good progress, as evidenced by these types of discussions. ys pd

Leading Sri Vaishnava Scholars on Female Diksha Gurus

https://akincana.net/2019/02/21/three-leading-sri-vaisnava-scholars-comment-on-iskcons-pending-female-diksa-guru-decision/?

PADA: Yep, already in trouble with their voted in gurus, suspended gurus, illicit sex gurus, drunkard gurus, drug addict gurus, machine gun gurus, sexual predator gurus, Vodka gurus, porno swami gurus, touchy feely gurus, and so on ad infinitum, now the GBC wants to add -- voted in female diksha gurus, when it is self evident they do not know who to vote for as guru already? ys pd   

ISKCON Sues Radha Damodar Temple (BG Narasimgha Swami)




PADA: Of course, without folks like BG Narasimha swami and his mentor Sridhara Maharaja originally propping up these 11 GBC as gurus in 1978, none of these lawsuits would have ever happened later on. Anyway, its interesting to see how the GBC does deviant things, while simultaneously claiming to be pure acharyas, and people who can absorb sins like Jesus etc. Of course folks like Sridhara Maharaja endorsed other deviants as God's successor "gurus" after 1936 in India, its a pattern.

Lets not forget, the GBC also buried a deviant (alleged pedophile) and a porno swami in "samadhis" in the dham. Yes, BG Narasimgha, you are right, these people are not gurus and your guru Sridhara Maharaja thus made a huge mistake empowering and enabling these deviants as his idea of ISKCON's "zonal gurus" and God's successors and messiahs. 

Sulochana said we have to DE-FUND and if possible, even bankrupt the GBC's guru process. Otherwise, if they have lots of spare money on hand -- they will use that money to make a regime which will oppress the Vaishnavas. And thus, they will use their ill gotten money to fund a policy of banning, beating, molesting, suing and assassination, which is what has been happening. 

Apparently the "money equals control issue" is somewhat going on now in a foreign temple. A devotee reports to PADA that their temple president there is a tyrant. And thus their president reportedly bullies and yells at women and makes them cry; He bullies the men and has them "walking on egg shells" -- thinking they could be removed (and thus lose their room and salary); He whimsically bans people for no apparent good reason; He takes mysterious unaccounted vacations and raises concerns over -- where the money is going; He is "overly chatty" with the teen age girls; And in general he acts like a bully and a fool, and yet no one can speak out because he has the financial lives of everyone there in his hands. Loyalty, bought and paid for.

And this pattern has been going on all over the place, fear of being economically cut off, banned, being sued, what to speak of having paid thugs on the payroll beating the stuffing out of GBC's opponents, or even having paid off "hit men" sent to assassinate GBC's opponents. And all of this is enabled and empowered by hijacked ISKCON money, as Sulochana has correctly pointed out already. We need to help save their funding -- to save their process? 

How did you guess, as soon as Sulochana said -- we need to de-fund the GBC's program, then all sorts of GBC's folks and their assorted defenders came out to attack Sulochana's idea. That includes more recently the Janardan / Pancali / Krishna Kirtan / Sanat / Mukunda UK / Prahlad das (Paul Coats UK) / HKC Jaipur team, who are still upset that their molester messiah's agenda was sued for $400,000,000, and thus their "innocent people" had to pay for that lawsuit. 

Yep, if there is something important missing from the world today its clearly; that we need to increase the financial supply of Kali's golden MONEY -- to fund a process of -- more and more and more -- banning, beating, molesting, suing and killing of the Lord's Vaishnavas. That is the process that needs -- more funding? Sheesh pilgrims!

Sulochana also called these people, the shekel counter's religion. And thus, lets fund suing Radha Damodar! Yes, lets fund and finance all this process, its something Satan fully approves of! Hee hee!

Oh forsooth! Its terrible I say! Child molesting was reduced or eliminated! And worse! You mean to say there will now be less money on hand for hiring paid for GBC guru's goonda programs -- of banning, beating, molesting, SUING and assassinating the Vaishnavas? Wow! Gimmee a kleenex already, I am crying because of missing out on creating MORE and MORE and MORE -- of this process! Who would want to have MORE FUNDING for this process, apart from the above mentioned hand maidens of said program?

Sorry, Sulochana has been right. And all along! When the ISKCON GBC's folks have had spare money on hand, they have used that money to create a process of contrived banning, if not beating, molesting, suing and assassinating. Did we forget to mention, even the karmis say money is the root of all evil? Or that the Vedas say -- Kali Yuga lives in gold (money)? And so on! 

Thanks to the Lord that He spared us of taking remnants from their money laden table. In any case, good on ya Narasimgha swami! You are right! Sridhara Maharaja handed the GBC's false gurus the keys to the kingdom by making them the "successor acharyas to God," and they then used that post to extract funds to create a giant criminal enterprise which is, how did you guess, banning, beating, molesting, suing and assassinating the devotees, which is an almost exact carbon copy of the program Sridhara Maharaja made in 1936. ys pd

Pope's Credibility On The Line in Vatican Abuse Conference

8 kinds of spiritual knives to cut attachments (Srila Prabhupada)


** 8 kinds of spiritual knives to cut our attachments. **
1. Feb 15 1971 Gorakhpur
Therefore Krishna advises to his devotees that "Don't plan anything. You rascal, you nonsense, you don't give Me trouble. (laughter) Please surrender unto Me. Just go under My plan; you'll be happy. You are making plan, you are unhappy; I am also unhappy. I am also unhappy. (laughter) So many plans are coming daily, and I'll have to fulfill."
2. Sept 4 1966 New York
And what is the result of good association? Now, because, if we make good association, the santah chindanti. Santaha means the persons who are sadhu, who are pious. They can cut off by their words our attachment with this material world. They can cut off. … Just like when a person cuts something, there is no mercy, similarly when a sadhu or a person saint, speaks to his student, he does not make, show any mercy. He speaks the truth so that his mind may be cut off from the unreal attachment.
3. SB 3.25.20 Purport
..because if one associates with a sadhu, the result will be that the sadhu will teach him how to become a devotee, a worshiper and a sincere servitor of the Lord. These are the gifts of a sadhu. If we want to associate with a sadhu, we cannot expect him to give us instructions on how to improve our material condition, but he will give us instructions on how to cut the knot of the contamination of material attraction and how to elevate ourselves in devotional service. That is the result of associating with a sadhu
4. Madhyalila lecture NY 1976
So the Krishna consciousness movement is to make the nitya-baddhas again nitya-siddha, to bring them. It is a difficult task. Just I was talking in the morning, it is very difficult task to… Just like a madman. A madman, to again bring him to the normal life is very difficult task. You have got in your country so many institutions. So the whole world, anyone who is in this material world, he's a madman…
…The dull brain… Just like a madman cannot understand. So our task is very difficult. We have to cure so many. It is not possible to cure all of them, but as far as possible we are trying to cure, and simply one has to accept this philosophy seriously, then he'll get knowledge. Sad-dharmasyavabodhaya yesam nirbandhini matih.
5. Nov 23 1966 New York
So sometimes, if Krishna takes special care for you, He'll do in such a way that you will have no other way than to go back. He'll take charge, take charge. If we sincerely want Krishna, if He sees that "Here is a person. He wants Me. But he's a foolish. He wants Me; at the same time he wants to enjoy this material world. So crush this, crush this, his material propensities, and let him become simply devoted." Yes. Sometimes we see like that.
6. Dec 13 1970 Indore
So the other devotees, (laughs) they cannot rise…, come at five o'clock. That is the test. Yes. One who cannot rise early in the morning, he is not spiritually serious. That is test. Brahma-muhurta, this hour, one hour before sunrise, is very auspicious moment.

7. Oct 26 1976 Vrindavan
I have got already one body which is kleshada. Everyone has got experience. No one is here who can say that "My body is very nice. There is no klesha. There is no pains and pleasure. I am very perfect." That is not possible. As soon as you get a material body, it must be subjected to so many sufferings: adhyatmika, adhibautika, adhidaivika. Tribulations there must be. Material body means kleshada. Therefore the Vedic civilization is to stop getting this material body. That is Vedic civilization. Not that increase
8. Nectar of Devotion Chapter 10
Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu also recommended this process of hearing as a means of self-realization in the present age of Kali. In this age it is very difficult to follow thoroughly the regulative principles and studies of the Vedas which were formerly recommended. However, if one gives aural reception to the sound vibrated by great devotees and acharyas, that alone will give him relief from all material contamination. Therefore it is the recommendation of Caitanya Mahaprabhu that one should simply hear from authorities who are actually devotees of the Lord. Hearing from professional men will not help.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada !

At Last I am Finally Home (Chaitanya Dasi) VIDEO




PADA: Yes dear sister, finally home indeed! ys pd

Nitai Pada Kamala (Video) Srila Prabhupada




Srila Prabhupada describes the glories of Lord Nityananda Prabhu.

In Rāḍhadeśa, the part of Bengal where the Ganges is not visible, Nityānanda Prabhu, Gaṅgādāsa Paṇḍita, Murāri Gupta and Mukunda took birth.

Purport

Here rāḍha-deśe refers to the village of the name Ekacakrā in the district of Birbhum, next to Burdwan. After the Burdwan railway station there is another branch line, which is called the Loop Line of the eastern railway, and there is a railway station of the name Mallārapura. Eight miles east of this railway station Ekacakrā Village is still situated. Ekacakrā Village extends north and south for an area of about eight miles. Other villages, namely Vīracandra-pura and Vīrabhadra-pura, are situated within the area of the village of Ekacakrā. In honor of the holy name of Vīrabhadra Gosvāmī, these places are renowned as Vīracandra-pura and Vīrabhadra-pura.

In the Bengali year 1331 (A.D. 1924) a thunderbolt struck the temple of Ekacakrā-grāma. Therefore the temple is now in a broken state. Before this, there were no such accidents in that quarter. Within the temple there is a Deity of Śrī Kṛṣṇa established by Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu. The name of the Deity is Baṅkima Rāya or Bāṅkā Rāya.

On the right side of Baṅkima Rāya is a Deity of Jāhnavā, and on His left side is Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī. The priests of the temple describe that Lord Nityānanda Prabhu entered within the body of Baṅkima Rāya and that the Deity of Jāhnavā-mātā was therefore later placed on the right side of Baṅkima Rāya. Afterwards, many other Deities were installed within the temple. On another throne within the temple are Deities of Muralīdhara and Rādhā-Mādhava. On another throne are Deities of Manomohana, Vṛndāvana-candra and Gaura-Nitāi. But Baṅkima Rāya is the Deity originally installed by Nityānanda Prabhu.

On the eastern side of the temple is a ghāṭa known as Kadamba-khaṇḍī on the bank of the Yamunā, and it is said that the Deity of Baṅkima Rāya was floating in the water and Lord Nityānanda Prabhu picked Him up and then installed Him in the temple. Thereafter, in a place known as Bhaḍḍāpura, in the village of Vīracandra-pura, about half a mile west, in a place underneath anima tree, Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī was found. For this reason, the Rādhārāṇī of Baṅkima Rāya was known as Bhaḍḍāpurera Ṭhākurāṇī, the mistress of Bhaḍḍāpura. On another throne, on the right side of Baṅkima Rāya, is a Deity of Yogamāyā.

Now the temple and temple corridor rest on a high plinth, and on a concrete structure in front of the temple is a meeting hall. It is also said that on the northern side of the temple there was a Deity of Lord Śiva named Bhāṇḍīśvara and that the father of Nityānanda Prabhu, Hāḍāi Paṇḍita, used to worship that Deity. At present, however, the Bhāṇḍīśvara Deity is missing, and in his place a Jagannātha Svāmī Deity has been installed. Lord Nityānanda Prabhu did not factually construct any temples. The temple was constructed at the time of Vīrabhadra Prabhu. In the Bengali year 1298 (A.D. 1891), the temple being in a dilapidated condition, a brahmacārī of the name Śivānanda Svāmī repaired it.

In this temple there is an arrangement to offer foodstuffs to the Deity on the basis of seventeen seers of rice and necessary vegetables. The present priestly order of the temple belongs to the family of Gopījana-vallabhānanda, one of the branches of Nityānanda Prabhu. There is a land settlement in the name of the temple, and income from this land finances the expenditures for the temple. There are three parties of priestly gosvāmīs who take charge of the temple management, one after another. A few steps onward from the temple is a place known as Viśrāmatalā, where it is said that Nityānanda Prabhu in His childhood used to enjoy sporting with His boyfriends by enacting the rāsa-līlā and various other pastimes of Vṛndāvana.

Near the temple is a place named Āmalītalā, which is so named because of a big tamarind tree there. According to a party named the Neḍādi-sampradāya, Vīrabhadra Prabhu, with the assistance of twelve hundred Neḍās, dug a great lake of the name Śvetagaṅgā. Outside of the temple are tombs of the Gosvāmīs, and there is a small river known as the Mauḍeśvara, which is called the water of Yamunā. Within half a mile from this small river is the birthplace of Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu. It appears that there was a big meeting hall in front of the temple, but later it became dilapidated. It is now covered by banyan trees. Later on, a temple was constructed within which Gaura-Nityānanda Deities are existing. The temple was constructed by the late Prasannakumāra Kārapharmā. A tablet was installed in his memory in the Bengali year 1323 (A.D. 1916), in the month of Vaiśākha (April-May).

The place where Nityānanda Prabhu appeared is called Garbhavāsa. There is an allotment of about forty-three bighās (fourteen acres) of land to continue the worship in a temple there. The Mahārāja of Dinājapura donated twenty bighās (6.5 acres) of land in this connection. It is said that near the place known as Garbhavāsa, Hāḍāi Paṇḍita conducted a primary school. The priests of this place, listed in a genealogical table, were as follows: (1) Śrī Rāghavacandra, (2) Jagadānanda dāsa, (3) Kṛṣṇadāsa, (4) Nityānanda dāsa, (5) Rāmadāsa, (6) Vrajamohana dāsa, (7) Kānāi dāsa, (8) Gauradāsa, (9) Śivānanda dāsa and (10) Haridāsa. Kṛṣṇadāsa belonged to the Ciḍiyā-kuñja at Vṛndāvana. The date of his disappearance is Kṛṣṇa-janmāṣṭamī. Ciḍiyā-kuñja is a place now managed by the gosvāmīs of Śiṅgāra-ghāṭa in Vṛndāvana. They are also known as belonging to the Nityānanda family, most probably on the basis of their relationship with Kṛṣṇadāsa.

Near Garbhavāsa is a place called Bakulatalā, where Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu and His friends used to take part in sporting activities known as jhāla-jhapeṭā. There is a bakula tree there that is wonderful because all its branches and subbranches look like the hoods of serpents. It has been suggested that by the desire of Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu, Anantadeva manifested Himself in that way. The tree is very old. It is said that formerly it had two trunks, but later on, when the playmates of Nityānanda Prabhu felt inconvenience in jumping from the branches of one trunk to those of the nother, Nityānanda Prabhu, by His mercy, merged the two trunks into one.

Another place nearby is named Hāṅṭugāḍā. It is said that Lord Nityānanda Prabhu brought all the holy places there. Therefore the people in the surrounding villages go there instead of to the Ganges to take bath. It is named Hāṅṭugāḍā because Śrīla Nityānanda Prabhu used to perform the dadhi-ciḍā festival of distributing chipped rice with yogurt prasāda there and He took the prasāda kneeling down. A sanctified lake in this place is always full of water throughout the year. A great fair is held there during Goṣṭhāṣṭamī, and there is another big fair on the birthday of Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu. In the Gaura-gaṇoddeśa-dīpikā it is described that Halāyudha, Baladeva, Viśvarūpa and Saṅkarṣaṇa appeared as Nityānanda Avadhūta.
 
Sri Caitanya-caritamrta - 1975 Edition : Cc. Adi-lila : Adi 13: The Advent of Lord Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu : Adi 13.61

After this function at the house of Śrīvāsa Ṭhākura, Nityānanda Prabhu appeared, and when He met with Lord Caitanya He got the opportunity to see Him in His six-armed form.

purport

The form of Ṣaḍ-bhuja, the six-armed Lord Gaurasundara, is a representation of three incarnations. The form of Śrī Rāmacandra is symbolized by a bow and arrow, the form of Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is symbolized by a stick and flute like those generally held by a cowherd boy, and Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu is symbolized by a sannyāsa-daṇḍa and kamaṇḍalu, or waterpot.Śrīla Nityānanda Prabhu was born in the village of Ekacakra in the district of Birbhum as the son of Padmāvatī and Hāḍāi Paṇḍita. In His childhood He played like Balarāma. When He was growing up, a sannyāsī came to the house of Hāḍāi Paṇḍita, begging to have the paṇḍita's son as his brahmacārīassistant. Hāḍāi Paṇḍita immediately agreed and delivered his son to him, although the separation was greatly shocking, so much so that Hāḍāi lost his life after the separation.

Nityānanda Prabhu traveled on many pilgrimages with the sannyāsī. It is said that for many days He lived at Mathurā with him, and at that time He heard about Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu's pastimes in Navadvīpa. Therefore He came down to Bengal to see the Lord. When Lord Nityānanda came to Navadvīpa, He was a guest at the house of Nandana Ācārya. Understanding that Nityānanda Prabhu had arrived, Lord Caitanya sent His devotees to Him, and thus there was a meeting between Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Nityānanda Prabhu.

Sri Nityananda-Candrasya-Nama-Dvadasakam




Sri Nityananda-Candrasya-Nama-Dvadasakam

The Twelve Names of the Moonlike Nityananda Prabhu
by Sarvabhauma Battacarya

"nityanando 'vadhutendur, vasudha-prana-vallabhah"

"jahnavi-jivita-patih, krsna-prema-pradah prabhu"

"Padmavati-sutah sriman, saci-nandana-purvajah"

"bhavanmotto jagat-trata, rakta-gaura-kalevarah "

"Sri Nityananda Prabhu is the embodiment of eternal bliss. He is the moon of all avadhutas and the beloved of the life-breath of Vasudha (His wife). Lord Nityananda is the husband enthusing Jahnavi with life. Nityananda Rama bestows ecstatic love for Krishna and He is the Lord and Master of the devotees."

"Sri Nityananda is the dear son of Padmavati and He is full of splendorous transcendental majesty. Nitai is the older brother of Sacimata's son Nimai. Nityananda Avadhuta is maddened in overwhelming ecstatic emotions. Sri Nityananda Prabhu is the savior of the universe. His complexion is golden tinged with red."

" Sri nityananda candrasya nama-dvadasakam subham ya idam pratyaham
pratah praty utthaya pathen narah"
"Sa klesa-rahito bhutva prapnuyat
turnam caitanya-devasya karuna-bhajanam bhavet "

" That person who recites these twelve auspicious holy names of the moonlike Nityananda-chandra every day upon arising in the morning,


"such a person becomes free from all difficulties & attains all their most cherished desires. Very soon they become the object of Lord Chaitanya-deva's mercy."


=======================

THE LOTUS FEET OF LORD NITYANANDA ARE AS COOLING AS A MILLION MOONS

The lotus feet of Lord Nityananda are said to have the sacred markings. The conch shell on the bottom of Nityananda's feet signifies that those who take shelter of the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda are rescued from all kinds of suffering to become fearless and victorious. In spiritual ceremonies, the conch shell holds water to indicate how Nityananda's lotus feet hold transcendental water to soothe his devotees.

The half-moon marking on the sole of Lord Nityananda's lotus feet is also symbolic of the lotus feet. The half-moon is a symbol of Lord Shiva.

Just as the moon emits cooling rays, Lord Nityananda's lotus feet are said to emit soothing blessings to quench the sufferings of those who are exhausted by material pursuits and wish to be immersed in spiritual understanding. The lotus feet cool the fire of seeking to fulfill one worldly desire after another.

Vedic scripture says, "The lotus feet of Lord Nityananda are as cooling as a million moons."

The thunderbolt marking on the sole of Lord Nityananda's lotus feet symbolizes that meditating on Nityananda's lotus feet can shatter accumulated karma, granting freedom from the negative effects of attachment to ego gratifications. Ruler of the heavens and god of thunder and rain, Lord Indra, has the thunderbolt as his weapon.

Padma-madhu is the honey collected from the lotus flower. Ayurvedic doctors recommend rubbing padma-madhu in the eyes to cure various eye afflictions. In the same way that impurities in the eyes prevent seeing clearly and cause pain but are healed by padma-madhu, it is said that the guru-pada-padma-madhu (the name for the transcendental honey that flows from the lotus feet of a God-realized guru) can also "cleanse" the disciple's eyes — removing the darkness of ignorance, restoring a vision of eternal truth and relieving the pain caused by lack of spiritual knowledge.

Padma-madhu, the honey from the lotus flower, is considered a restorer of vitality. In a similar way, transcendental honey coming forth mellifluously from the lotus feet of a God-realized master or holy being provides spiritual sustenance.


=============================

Nityananda-tattva

Nityananda and Advaita / Two Main Branches of the Caitanya Tree

5.1

advaita acarya, nityananda, dui anga
dui-jana lana prabhura yata kichu ranga

Nityananda Prabhu and Advaitacarya are the two expansions of Lord
Caitanya Mahaprabhu who assist His transcendental pastimes. (Cc. Adi 5.146)

5.2

sankarsanah karana-toya-sayi
garbhoda-sayi ca payobdhi-sayi
sesas ca yasyamsa-kalah sa nitya-
nandakhya-ramah saranam mamastu

May Sri Nityananda Prabhu be the object of my constant remembrance.
Sankarsana, Mahavisnu, Garbhodaksayi Visnu, and Ksirodaksayi Visnu, as well as Sesa are His expansions and the expansions of His expansions. That
same Nityananda Prabhu, is none other than Balarama. (Cc. Adi 1.7)

5.3

mayatite vyapi-vaikuntha-loke
purnaisvarye sri-catur-vyuha-madhye
rupam yasyodbhati sankarsanakhyam
tam sri-nityananda-ramam prapadye

I surrender unto the lotus feet of Sri Nityananda Rama, who is known as Sankarsana in the midst of the catur-vyuha. He has full opulences and
resides in Vaikunthaloka far beyond the material creation. (Cc. Adi 1.8)

5.4

maya-bhartajanda-sanghasrayangah
sete saksat karanambhodhi-madhye
yasyaikamsah sri-puman adi-devas
tam sri-nityananda-ramam prapadye

I offer my full obeisances unto the feet of Sri Nityananda Rama, whose
partial representation called Karanodakasayi Visnu, lying on the Karana
ocean, is the original Purusa, the master of the illusory energy and the shelter
of all the universes. (Cc. Adi 1.9)

5.5

yasyamsamsah srila-garbhoda-sayi
yan-nabhy-abjam loka-sanghata-nalam
loka-srastuh sutika-dhama dhatus
tam sri-nityananda-ramam prapadye

I offer my full obeisances unto the feet of Sri Nityananda Rama, a partial
part of whom is Garbhodaksayi Visnu. From the navel of Garbhodaksayi
Visnu sprouts the lotus stem that is the birthplace of Brahma, the engineer
of the Universe. The stem of that lotus is the resting place of the multitude
of planets. (Cc. Adi 1.10)

5.6

yasyamsamsamsah paratmakhilanam
posta visnur bhati dugdhabdhi-sayi
ksauni-bharta yat-kala so 'py anantas
tam sri-nityananda-ramam prapadye

I offer my full obeisances unto the feet of Sri Nityananda Rama, whose
secondary part is the Visnu lying in the ocean of milk. That Ksirodakasayi
Visnu is the Supersoul of all living entities and the maintainer of all the
universe. Sesa Naga is His further sub-part. (Cc. Adi 1.11)

Baladeva is the Original Sankarsana

5.7

sri-balarama gosani mula-sankarsana
panca-rupa dhari' karena krsnera sevana
apane karena krsna-lilara sahaya
srsti-lila-karya kare dhari' cari kaya

Lord Balarama is the original Sankarsana. He assumes five other forms
to serve Lord Krsna. He helps in the pastimes of Lord Krsna, and He does
the work of creation in four other forms. (Cc. Adi 5.8,9)

Balarama and Nityananda are non Different

5.8

prema-pracarana ara pasanda-dalana
dui-karye avadhuta karena bhramana

For two purposes to spread the cult of bhakti and to defeat and subdue the atheists Lord Nityananda, the most dedicated devotee of the Lord, moved throughout the country. (Cc. Antya 3.149)

The Glories of Nityananda Prabhu

5.9

jagat mataya nitai premera malasate
palaya durdanta kali padiya vibhrate
ki sukhe bhasila jiva gauracandera nate
dekhiya suniya pasandira buk phate

[All glories to Nityananda Prabhu!] Maddened by ecstatic love of Godhead, he overwhelmed the universe with ecstasy. He slapped his hands together like a warrior who is about to attack, and upon seeing this, the wicked Kali fled in terror, fearing for his life. All souls were drowned in happiness because of the dancing of Sri Gauranga [and Nityananda]. Seeing such dancing, or even hearing of it, melts the hearts even of great atheists.

(Gitavali, Nagara-kirtana, 8)

5.10

jaya jaya nityananda, nityananda-rama
yanhara krpate painu vrndavana-dhama
jaya jaya nityananda, jaya krpa-maya
yanha haite painu rupa-sanatanasraya
yanha haite painu raghunatha-mahasaya
yanha haite painu sri-svarupa-asraya
sanatana-krpaya painu bhaktira siddhanta
sri-rupa-krpaya painu bhakti-rasa-pranta
jaya jaya nityananda-caranaravinda
yanha haite painu sri-radha-govinda

All glory, all glory to Lord Nityananda Balarama, by whose mercy I have attained shelter in the transcendental abode of Vrndavana. All glory, all glory to the merciful Lord Nityananda, by whose mercy I have attained shelter of Sri Rupa and Sanatana. By His mercy, I have attained the shelter of the great Sri Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, and by His mercy I have found the refuge of Sri Svarupa Damodara. By the mercy of Sanatana Gosvami I have learned the final conclusions of devotional service, and by the grace of Sri Rupa Gosvami I have tasted the highest nectar of devotional service.

All glory, all glory to the lotus feet of Lord Nityananda, by whose mercy I have attained Sri Radha-Govinda.

(Cc. Adi. 5.200-204)

Nityananda is the Savior of the Most Fallen

5.11

jagai madhai haite muni se papistha
purisera kita haite muni se laghistha
mora nama sune yei tara punya ksaya
mora nama laya yei tara papa haya
emana nirghrna more keba krpa kare
eka nityananda vinu jagat bhitare
preme matta nityananda krpa-avatara
uttama, adhama, kichu na kare vicara
ye age padaye, tare karaye nistara
ataeva nistarila mo-hena duracara

I am more sinful than Jagai and Madhai and even lower than the worms in stool. Anyone who hears my name loses the results of his pious activities. Whoever utters my name becomes sinful. Who in this world but Nityananda could show His mercy to such an abominable person as me? Because He is intoxicated by ecstatic love and is an incarnation of mercy, He does not distinguish between the good and the bad. He delivers all those who fall down before Him. Therefore He has delivered such a sinful and fallen person as me. (Cc. Adi 5.205-209)

Freedom from Anarthas and the Desire for Bhakti is Strengthened by the Mercy of Nitai

5.12

samsarera para hai' bhaktira sagare
ye dubibe se bhajuk nitai-candere
One who would cross over the ocean of material existence and swim in the bhakti ocean should worship the lotus feet of Nityananda. 

(Cb. Adi 1.77)

Nityananda is the Foremost Preacher

5.13

caitanyera adi-bhakta nityananda-raya
caitanyera yaso vaise yanhara jihvaya
aharnisa caitanyera katha prabhu kaya
tan're bhajile se caitanye bhakti haya

Lord Caitanya's first and foremost devotee is Nityananda Raya. The glories of Lord Caitanya are always on his tongue. Day and night Lord Nityananda speaks only of Lord Caitanya. Whoever worships Him is a real devotee of Sri Caitanya. (C.Bhag. Adi 9.217-218)

Nityananda mad About Serving Sri Caitanya

5.14

nityananda avadhuta sabate agala
caitanyera dasya-preme ha-ila pagala

Nityananda, the wandering mendicant, is the foremost of all the servants of Lord Caitanya. He is like the gateway through which all service to Lord Caitanya must pass. He became mad in the ecstasy of service to Lord Caitanya. (Cc. Adi 6.48)

Those who Have no Faith that Gaura and Nitai are Inseparable are Offenders and Atheists.

5.15

dui bhai eka-tanu samana-prakasa
nityananda na mana, tomara habe sarva-nasa
ekete visvasa, anye na kara sammana
"ardha-kukkuti-nyaya" tomara pramana

These two brothers (Gaura and Nitai) are like one body; they are identical manifestations. If you do not believe in Lord Nityananda, you will down. If you have faith in one, but disrespect the other, your logic is like the logic of accepting half a hen. (Cc. Adi 5.175,176)

Faith in Gaura Without Nitai, or Nitai Without Gaura, is Flickering Faith and in Opposition to Pure Devotional Service 

5.16

kimva, dooha na manina hao ta' pasanda
eke mani' are na mani, ei-mata bhanda

It would be better to be an atheist by slighting both brothers than a hypocrite by believing in one and slighting the other. (Cc. Adi 5.177)
Thus ends the Fifth Jewel of Gaudiya Kanthahara, entitled Nityananda-tattva.

GBC selling "guru initiation" packages?

PADA: Anyone with more info send to angel108b@yahoo.com

A testimonial from His Grace T das
I was in Vrndavana and speaking to a GBC guru's disciple who expressed a desire to do deity worship, but could not because he was only a first initiate. I advised him to ask his guru for second initiation, to which he replied that it was to expensive for him. 

Confused by this I asked him to explain and he told me that to get initiation in Russia where he came from one had to give the Regional Secretary payment so that he would recommend them. Shocked by this I asked if his guru knew about this an he said, Oh yes, this is the process there. 

These people are not Vaisnavas, what to speak of being Bona fide Spiritual Masters. They are 24 carat Bona fide Materialistic and quite frankly they exhibit the symptoms of Demoniac personalities by their degradation of Srila Prabhupada's teachings by such activities.
