Demand for Vegetarian Burger Creates Supply Shortage


PADA: Wow, it looks like a lot of people are taking to the veggie burger. That is good news, particularly, if you are a cow. ys pd

Jyotika Leaves Her Body (Atlanta)

Jyotika doing what she loved best, giving people the Holy Names. Her passing is a great loss to the greater Atlanta community. Her compassion and love for everyone was exemplary and we miss her association very deeply. Her dedication to our weekly Harinam was a great inspiration to all of us. She really loved Radharani and talked about Her constantly. I pray Srimati Radharani gives her shelter under Her lotus feet.

[PADA: Report is, her car stopped running and she had to pull over to a "blind area" where another car did not see hers, until it was too late and hers was hit. Danger at every step! 

Anyway, in our opinion these type people are mainly trying to serve Krishna and they are not really often aware of the mess the GBC guru's process is all about. At the same time, its becoming more and more apparent that the ISKCON temples are more and more dependent on their Hindu congregations for support, donations, and for members. This lady reportedly first had a Hindu funeral ceremony, which is increasingly the standard for ISKCON. 

One devotee wrote that at his ISKCON temple: They are singing Hindi songs that were never authorized by Srila Prabhupada; The temple managers are Hindus; One of the temple speakers is a big fan of Rama Krishna mission; And in a few years no one will ever know this was supposed to be an ISKCON temple, it will be and Hindu Mandira.

Mukti is Another Cheating (SP video)

Jesus and us were attacked (an ISKCON Gurukuli)

KD: When I was a little girl in gurukula, suffering as we all did very badly, there was a lady in the temple. She used to take it upon herself to tutor me. And one of the biggest lessons she gave me was about Jesus. Just because bad things happen to you, does not mean you're a bad person, or that you deserve it. 

And she told me the story of Jesus, actually she read it to me a little bit every day, from his birth to his persecution. And she would tell me, look what a great person he was, but look what they did to him. The fact (my life also) has been full of pain suffering and trauma and loss and poverty. 

And despite that I still help people and do a lot of good things for people. I spent my entire childhood chanting Hari Krishna at the wee hours of the morning and suffering the whole time. If I had any bad karma it has been burned by now. I really think Western devotees do not have a grip on the concept of Karma whatsoever and their view of it is actually cruel, mean and not at all vaishnav like.

[PADA: Yep. There was a lot of suffering, trauma, poverty etc. going on here from a number in the "ISKCON youth." And it is truly amazing that folks like me and Sulochana became targets of death threats, and even murder, for saying that the suffering of these children needs to be stopped and fixed. Not only Sridhara Maharaja people, Narayana Maharaja people, GBC guru people,  even the Dalalu Nitai HKC and Prahlad people were totally against our saving these children from suffering and our exposing their molesting infrastructure and its webs and nests process. They all complained that we should not go after their children abuse and suffering regime. Yep, we need to save the Pharisees!  

And worse, these folks told me our attempt at stopping children from being molested etc. means "PADA has no credibility" etc. and maybe we should be assassinated for our complaining about their process. So there has been, as some of these kulis told me "a war against children." And clearly there has been "a war" against those of us exposing the war against these children. Yep children need to eat rotten oatmeal while the leaders eat 50 course feasts, and as Sridhara Maharaja said "none should protest."

And a lot of that was being justified by saying "its the karma of these children." Even Narayana Maharaja said these children are just getting karma. NM is authorized to help Tamal promote a war against children program? 

So this is like the ex-devotee here in Berkeley who started eating hamburgers and he told me, "These cows are already destined to be made into hamburger because that is its karma, so there is no karma for my eating them as hamburgers." OK so we can allow child molesting because -- its the karma of the children to be molested? So we should allow criminals and crimes to go on unchecked, all over human society, because its all karma? 

This ex-kuli is right, the children were being attacked just like Jesus was being attacked, by the demoniac elements. That is exactly correct, Jesus was attacked and so were these kids, by the demoniac. And the people who assisted this program are like Pharisees and the Roman soldiers who assisted in persecuting Jesus. Agreed. ys pd]

Vaishnava Calendar May 2019

PADA: These dates are for India Time Zone

Using Original Books for Temple Classes

TD: Not being able to find a significant fault, they try to teach us about the importance of the original books of Prabhupada -- as if we don't know it. They do not know that we have technical problems in execution. 

The supplier not having enough stock of books, a VedaBase of original books which doesn't work on MacBooks, and even on Windows, where it does work, the text size can be increased only to 200% which is insufficient to be shown on a screen during a lecture in the temple. The BBT version zooms up to 500%. 

We need a minimum of 350% zoom for the temple audience to see it. Our style of preaching in ISKM is groundbreaking, where the speaker is showing the verses on the screen while speaking in an impromptu fashion and at the same time, we are live streaming for those devotees who are far away. The other option to display the original translations is to go to prabhupadabooks.com while lecturing and the URLs that we have to type in order to effectively get the verses out on the screen are complicated. 

For example, for BG 4.9, we have to type prabhupadabooks.com/bg/4/9?d=1. For each and every verse, we have to do this. Imagine!! And because livestreaming is going on, this action of browsing becomes very slow. We have to have sufficient bandwidth to handle surfing and streaming at the same time. 

The logistics are unimaginable by these so-called Prabhupadanuga wranglers. And the 11th and 12th canto of Srimad Bhagavatam -- there was Prabhupada's order for them to be translated. That means, he wanted us to know its contents. And with even some basic Sanskrit knowledge, anyone can understand that the translations were quite accurate. There's absolutely nothing wrong in quoting from them.

More importantly, the word anuga means to follow in the footsteps. These rascals Prabhupadanugas who are actually Prabhupada-drohis (offenders to Prabhupada), do not follow in the footsteps of Prabhupada. Almost all of them don't have a morning program on a daily basis, don't eat prasadam, eat karmi food, don't wear devotional clothing or tilak, don't join full-time, don't conduct any preaching programs, don't distribute Prabhupada's original books, I mean absolutely nothing constructive. And they can't even appreciate someone pushing the movement forward for Srila Prabhupada. 

That's not a Prabhupadanuga!! That's a Prabhupada-drohi!! Rascals in the garb of devotees. Complete kali-chelas!

[PADA: Right. As soon as we said that we need to start a lawsuit to get the original books, Krishna Kanta (IRM) told me NOT to proceed with this process because suing the GBC would agitate the ISKCON leaders. He said he was going to "work out a deal to get original books -- and make the GBC into ritviks." 

Ummm, we told him -- this is dreaming in color. We were right, he never did work out any "deal" for original books.

And at the same time, Mukunda UK (and his program of Prahlad das / HKC Jaipur ilk folks) wrote to inform me that our BBTI lawsuit idea is foolish because  "lawyers are all nonsense" -- just at the time we were helping orchestrate the BBTI lawsuit in Los Angeles. OK, so Jayadvaita's changed books should get ALL the lawyers, while Srila Prabhupada's original books get none?  

And these people claim to be in favor of the original books, when simultaneously they say we should NOT even have started ANY lawsuit to get ANY rights to print ANY originals? Meanwhile, they are not capable of even suing a cheating pan walla? Of course these folks also wanted the molester's regime to have all the lawyers, the poisoner's party to have all the lawyers, and so on and so forth. 

Thus people ask PADA, not sure why they wanted the changed books to have all the lawyers, and Prabhupada's original book to have zero lawyers? OK, they really never wanted us to EVER have ANY legal rights to ANY of the originals. They think that they are going to have tea and crumpets with the GBC gurus and "work out a deal" with the bad guys? This is not happening folks! 

Anyway, the good news is, more people want originals. And the idea that originals should be displayed for the temple classes is a GOOD IDEA. Bravo! Yes, even a lot of my God brothers thought I was making a mountain out of a mole hill in the early 1980s for objecting to the changed books, but time seems to be working in our favor, and thus more and more folks are agreeing -- this is an important issue, perhaps the most important issue of all. ys pd]

Trucker Makes Animal Rescue Center (CBS News)


PADA: Yep, some guy is making a big home for animals but devotees (even sometimes combined together) seem to have a hard time making large cow protection programs? 

Latest report from Vrndavana is that various sannyasas and brahmacaris have basically taken over the living facility at the Gaushala, but they do not care for the cows. 

They are making the excuse they have no time since they "need to chant." Well maybe, but taking over the cow shelters and making it another residence for GBC "renunciates"? Even some of the locals there are appalled at the hypocrisy here. Anyway, this truck driver shows it can be done, if a person is dedicated and determined to do so. ys pd

Kanha Barsane Mein (Music Video)

Mukunda Goswami Makes Another Marriage Mess

Oh no! Its that nasty PADA thing on the internet! 
Maharaja, what will we do now?

[PADA: Yep, there are little (or no?) funds to care for the retired rank and file, but there is a spare few hundred million on hand for bogus lawsuits. Told ya! Some poor woman is now going to be deputed to take care of this guy as his wife? That sounds like another exploitation? 

ys pd]

Mukunda Goswami blessed his disciple to find a wife at the age of 61.

Dear devotees, below is a letter - a comment by Medini-pati prabhu on his marital status.

Dear devotees, please accept my obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

In order to avoid omissions and misunderstandings in my family situation, I want to state the state of things as I see them.

Gauri Mataji and I have been married for 24 years together. All this time, we were under the guidance of spiritual masters, trying to live in Srila Prabhupada’s mission and fulfill the prescribed dharma. During our life together, Gauri ideally performed her feminine dharma, being an example of complete selfless dedication as a wife, mother and devotee, which greatly inspired all of us.

As our spiritual progress progressed, it became increasingly clear that our priorities in devotional service diverged. By my nature, I was more into mentoring, preaching and lecturing. Whereas Gauri is for kirtanas and harinamas. After repeated serious conversations with Purnacandra Goswami, Mukunda Goswami and Bhakti Vijnana Goswami, we partially balanced our different natures in serving the mission of Srila Prabhupada and performing our dharma. As a result, we were able to lead a fairly large Nama-Hatta, sing kirtans and raise full-fledged children in Krishna Consciousness. Spiritual masters were pleased with our practice.

The next serious crisis began in 2010, due to the relocation to Sochi and the founding of the Balaramovka community. By this time it was clear that the move was in some sense a violence for Gauri, and she herself honestly said that she could not cope. But at that time it was the only right way for me - to surrender to the instructions of the guru, and Gauri followed me as her husband, selflessly carrying my mission all this time. 

We tried to organize kirtans and harines as much as possible. But we could not travel much and visit the kirtana-mela, due to the minority of children and the need to develop the community. Gradually, the internal tension and discontent of Gauri grew. By 2016, my physical health had deteriorated significantly and my age began to take its own, I could not fully support my spouse emotionally, while she experienced strong emotional stress from the lack of frequent kirtans and harinams. 

The situation was also complicated by repeated surgical interventions in my body. We began to physically live separately, so as not to harm each other. Over time, she was forced to stop performing women's duties in serving me as a husband. Gradually, these responsibilities were transferred to members of our community.

In 2017, after a long serious analysis, being fully informed about the physical and mental state of me and Gauri, Mukunda Goswami gave the instruction to give Gauri the opportunity to make all the decisions himself. Decisions, first of all concerning her spiritual practice. Gopal Krishna Goswami, Gauri's spiritual master, refused to give her any specific solution. Considering us mature devotees, he granted us the right to look for a way out of this situation own.

From that moment on, I had to relieve myself of some pressure on Gauri. She continued to serve in the temple, but not to me personally, as it conflicted with her spiritual life. I repeatedly offered her to return to the ministry to me, as a husband, as to the main ministry, but this did not inspire her.

Our family life was moving towards the vanaprastha stage.

It was decided to separate spiritual practice, the children became completely independent. I retained my husband’s duties as financial support for my wife, but I took off her emotional protection, which was also dictated by my natural state — old age. But this form of renunciation came into conflict with the needs of my preaching mission. I needed support on trips, on operations, on dieting, socializing and household issues.

This situation was described in detail in a letter to my spiritual master. What happened next (the divorce and the subsequent wedding of Gauri) is not my initiative. This is entirely a decision of Gauri Mataji and I was forced to agree with this, since from a legal and ethical point of view I could not resist it. Even with my refusal to sign a divorce, Gauri had the opportunity to get papers through the court.

After the events that took place, we had a discussion in the community, trying to analyze this situation as objectively as possible, and as a result another letter was written to Mukunda Maharaj. Gurudev instructed to maintain the functioning of the Temple and to transfer financial responsibility from my shoulders to the community. As for my ashram (status), Guru Maharaj explained that content is first and foremost important, and form is just a tool for maintaining this essence. Our strength is in purity, which we draw from chanting and reading Srila Prabhupada’s books.

To carry out further preaching and my normal functioning requires a certain physical care of my body and life. The community at this stage of its development cannot fully support me because of the small number of its members and the presence of young children in families. In this regard, Guru Maharaj blessed me to find a prabhu or mataji who will take responsibility for taking care of me. Guru Maharaj specifically emphasized that he does not see any problems if this is a mataji with which I will have to formalize relations with time. I have a record of this darshan, and the evidence is in SB 8.2.30, SB 8.19.2.

Dear devotees, I would like to humbly recall that the purpose of our spiritual practice is to satisfy a spiritual master. Therefore, in my decisions I do not rely on my own desires, but I try to keep the guru’s precepts in priority and follow them as precisely as possible. Perhaps externally, the implementation of these instructions may seem strange and incomprehensible to someone, nevertheless, the essence of my actions is as that.

If you are disturbed by my actions, then the best way is to turn to my elders - Mukunda Maharaj or Bhakti Vijnana Goswami for clarification. Any other discussion about me with Vaisnavas should be considered prajalpa, a waste of time that could lead to Vaisnava aparadhas. Please protect your spiritual life, only these two Vaisnavas have a complete picture of the situation. Minor misunderstandings and questions can be found out from my secretary Kazachenko Natalia.

Your servant,

Medini-Pati das

Journey Home or Journey to Hell?


Apr 27, 2019 — INDIA 

PART TWENTY-THREE: A GBC that Promotes Mayavada Dooms Itself

The inept board of neophytes that prides itself as ISKCON's GBC has a long record of wreaking havoc upon Shrila Prabhupada's sankirtana movement. Their difficulties began with their misdirection from the moment His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, the Founder-Acharya of ISKCON, departed. Immediately after the disappearance of His Divine Grace, the GBC appointed their own set of inept "Divine Graces" whose egomaniacal demands for worship scattered the thousands of sincere devotees, leaving temples void of bhakti, as many remain to this day. 

With sankirtana and book distribution now gone on many of America's street corners, a common question by members of the public became "Whatever happened to the Hare Krishnas?" Oh, just ask the GBC—they have all the answers. But one thing that happened was that the leaders turned to the community of Indian professionals as their new cash cows, with the result that the compromising Hinduization of ISKCON soon became a reality. 

[PADA: Yes, an Atlanta devotee just now died in a car crash and her funeral will first off be "a Hindu ceremony." ISKCON leaders wanted to remove the Western devotees and use the buildings as Hindu cultural centers, where they could then control the use of revenue without being questioned. Of course we wish this devotee who died in a car crash well, its just that she never understood the history of all this, or the proper siddhanta etc.]

One answer that the GBC has not learned yet, perhaps, is that there is no free lunch and somewhere along the way it is going to be payback time. And that payback is coming in the form of gratuitous compromises in the New World ISKCON.

[PADA: That is what they wanted all along? Some Hindu-ized / yoga classes / Krishna-Western-ized process which would replace Srila Prabhupada's process. Again, they get to control the income, and the ISKCON buildings are being held hostage for the use of their Hindu-ized and / or "new age" program.] 

Within a couple of years after the mahasamadhi of the Founder-Acharya the GBC began over-editing, altering and changing Shrila Prabhupada's books—in defiance of all rules of scholarship. To add insult to injury, puerile and amateurish editing stole the author's voice even as the sale of Shrila Prabhupada's original books at some of the very temples that he founded became prohibited.

[PADA: Yep, they had to change the siddhanta to suit their new program.]

With so many changes causing confusion and chaos throughout ISKCON, the rubber-stamped "acharyas" began accumulating disciples who were far less qualified than the servants of Shrila Prabhupada whom their dictatorial policies had alienated. Devotees had fled by the thousands due to the GBC's violation of the principle not to mentally speculate, but the GBC's solution was to patch up problems with mental speculation with more of the same.

From among the new batch of sycophants and flatterers, the "grand disciples" of the Founder-Acharya, child molesters began stalking ISKCON schools, though the crimes against children were not limited to the rising generation. Even some of the divinely appointed acharyas themselves were found guilty of child molestation. As many children were victimized by predators posing as devotees, none of the perpetrators ever saw a courtroom or a day in jail. A number of the victims could not bear the shame they grew up to adulthood with, and would later go on to commit suicide. Now there was more blood on the hands of the GBC.

[PADA: Correct, of course anyone who tried to address this was demonized even by many of the rank and file, and / or followers of Sridhara Maharaja, Narayana Maharaja et al. These folks constantly chastised me for being "way over the top" in criticizing their molester messiah's program. 

Of course we have had people like Sanat / Mukunda / Prahlad / Pancali / Krishna Kirtan / Janardan / HKC Jaipur folks who simply said, we need to take PADA off the internet, thus our favorite buggery pooja program can flourish without being impeded! In other words, many people came forward to defend the molester messiah's regime, it was not just the leaders who co-opted with this process. The good news is, more folks are apologizing to me for crushing down our complaints, better late than never.] 

The GBC, after losing a useless lawsuit and millions of dollars aimed at protecting their changed books, Shrila Prabhupada's sacred trust—the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust—quickly became converted to some new-fangled invention. It would now be called the BBT-I which claimed that the author-founder-acharya had been merely a "writer for hire".

An era of printing Mayavadi literature had by now entered ISKCON. This started with Satyaraja's "The Glory of India," and a few years later his "Yoga of Kirtan." The final nail in the coffin came in 2009 with the GBC's enthusiastic promotion of "The Journey Home," which props up dozens of openly atheistic Mayavadi so-called "gurus"—several of which were alleged to be predatorial serial rapists or sexual deviates.

[PADA: Right, and the same people buried a sexual predator, and in another case a porno swami in samadhi in Vrndavana. There is an agenda afoot here ...]

With such a pathetic and shameful track record, it is clear that the GBC has failed Lord Chaitanya, the Founder-Acharya, the disciples of Shrila Prabhupada and the world at large. We read in the Bhaktivedanta Purport to Shrimad-Bhagavatam (1.3.14):

"Whenever there is some negligence on the part of the king in discharging his duty, the intelligent class of men must dethrone him." 

Bhaktivedanta Book Trust

[PADA: Well yep, that is basically what we said all along, Rocana's "living gurus" are destroying ISKCON. ys pd]

Dubious Chemicals Found in Beauty Products

PADA: A number of devotees use these type products, and they should be aware of some of the potential dangers therein. Its amazing that "beauty" in Kali yuga or apparent beauty, has so many potential down side effects. Its also not surprising that so many devotees are ill and / or have mystery diseases with the atmosphere being contaminated with all these by-products, never mind the mental distress of Kali yuga itself. ys pd

Conversation about Jayatirtha / Ramesvara / Harikesha / Sridhara & Narayan Maharaja

MC: I am curious about Jaya Tirtha. Was he the real monkey on a stick, in the sense that he had to be made an example of? In ‘Notes From A Pilgrim’, he appears to be on the brink of spilling the beans (ie. the secrets of the corrupt ISKCON GBC leadership). Seems like he had to be silenced. His assassination bears all the hallmarks of an MKUltra hit, with the crazed killer claiming he was the Antichrist.

[PADA: Yes, Jayatirtha said (or implied) that the other GBC were dangerous thugs who were coming after him. Maybe they would kill him? Great, so why did he say that he -- and these other 10 GBCs were all "Krishna's appointed guru successors" -- if he knew all along they were conditioned souls, if not dangerous thugs? And in any case, they were unqualified to be gurus? Jayatirtha was totally in support of the "appointed 11 gurus" process right out of the gate.

And Kirtanananda said the same type things later on, that the other GBC gurus are against me; And Hansadutta said the same thing, that the other GBC gurus are against me; And Harikesha said the same thing, that the other GBC gurus are against me -- and giving me bad vibhuti to make me go crazy, and so on. So each of them was playing the victim card to get sympathy from their individual followers to increase their personal guru cults. All the other gurus are evil thugs, but not me! 

This way, no one could be trusted except your own personal GBC guru, and that means the other GBCs / other gurus are not trustworthy. This is how they made their own individual cults prosper and grow. Its part of how mind control tricks are used in cults. You cannot trust the GBC, only me, your ONLY guru.

That also means Jayatirtha knew the whole while that he and the others from the 11 are not, were not, could not have been acharyas. So he went along with their cheating guru charade to get a seat in their crooked assembly, self-evidently because he wanted the glorious "guru post" that the vicious assembly could give him. 

Other GBC's gurus privately admit things too from time to time, but what good is that when they conjointly founded the bogus appointed guru Frankenstein monster, a monster that they could not bring back into control once launched?]

KL: A long and complicated story. He was forced to take Sanyas by the GBC - he did not want to leave his wife - they were a perfect vaisnava couple. He was never suited or wanted sanyas. I could tell you the tale leading to his sad death and the characters involved but would take a few volumes and weeks! 

[PADA: None of us were forced to follow the bogus GBC. We could either leave or stay with them. We left and JT stayed with them, that's his own doing.]

He was soft hearted and never able to hack the institution and GBC control when he realised what was happening as he wanted loving organic relationships with people and vaisnavas from the heart and respect for all faiths etc but he never stopped chanting, reading, writing, serving and was so kind that sometimes he was blind to the fact that some of his biggest enemies were those closest to him. 

He had a more controversial shamanic nature in the 80s. However he was never a pedophile, child and women abuser, control freak, murderer etc as the others mentioned and in fact for all his unique nature was a real, rare gentleman. He was another big Iskcon casualty in a way but never stopped loving Srila Prabhupada. But it’s all too emotional, sad and complicated to try and summarise here .

The guy who murdered him! Yes who was he really? I suspected him right from the start when he was praised for bringing in so much money to enable him to get closer into the intimate circle. It was him who told JT disciples to go to India - not JT etc etc. Indeed who were the infiltrators who entered Iskcon? 

Ever read the Jesuit / Zionist /secret society vows!!? Anyway I did wonder that maybe he had been assigned to JT and when he could no longer trail him or be in his realm of influence murdered him by beheading, which besides poisoning, is the preferred assassination by these sly coverts!

[PADA: Beheading is not sly or covert, it implies that the murderer had seen enough garbage going on and he felt he had a duty to stop it, since he had been part of building it up. Its a crime of anger, passion, rage, not like a subtle plot over time. Navanita perhaps realized he had helped create a Frankenstein monster, which was harmful and he wanted to rectify his mistake. Of course his solution is not recommended, better to preach and help people understand things.]  

May never know for sure ... . JT definitely knew first hand of the "dangerous drug GBC” as he said but was a victim to them too when he "had to leave as impossible to stay." I guess as he said, "this movement was meant to be run on love and not rules and regulations!" We knew exactly what he was saying in our hearts. It’s all pieces of the jigsaw puzzle ! I think JT “Tirthapada’ was more courageous than we will ever know!

[PADA: Jayatirtha is the dangerous drug GBC, and he is promoting drugs to boot.]

PP: I think we need a small version written out, otherwise you only ever get small glimpses of the story and they are very small, like LSD, Rishikesha tripping ashram etc. You must have known Caitanya Candra from OZ but lived in England in those days. He was at the Rishikesa ashram. Anyway when no one tells the inside story we only ever know the propaganda lies.

ML: For sure they did something to Harikesa Swami ... in some classes in Russia he was asking for help .... he was getting the things done properly in Mayapur ... some black magic, for what I was told.

GD: His case is very sad. He did not want to take sanyas and leave his wonderful wife and small son. It was forced on him by the others, the “Big Boyz” and he went mad on account of this. Similarly, this was forced on some of the others — even Rameshvar, yes, he is cunning, but he TRIED to end it early on. 

I am eye witness, he gave lectures in LA and Laguna, saying he was not fit to be a guru, Prabhupada is the only guru, and the Big Boyz threatened to ex-communicate him, and he was in the middle of printing Prabhupada’s books in La. (ORIGINAL books, this is before they got in there and changed them.)

He even had his Vyas asana dragged out of the LA temple, also laguna and Hawaii. But he fell victim to their power, and fell to the lowest ebb due to the virulent aparadha by this association. However, please note that he has not suffered as much, he still wants to be a devotee and loves Prabhupada, and is trying to make amends to those he hurt. He isn't as crazy or as dead as the others.

PP: Who were the main big boyz threatening the others to toe the line? We even see Tamal Krishna throwing in the towel with their game when they tried to censure him. I would have thought TKG was the main antagonists yet it seems others were more powerful. 

Then we had the whole group of them seeking the higher association of Srila Narayana Maharaja, yet they too were forced to disown him which meant they too created great apparadha by turning their backs on such a vaisnava and speaking bad words even about him. If we knew who were the top of this pyramid scheme.

I only knew Harikesa briefly in Sweden after we left Vrindavan due to the massive heartbreak of having the GBC / Gurus enter in 79 so they could claim Vrindavna temple as their own, rather than a special place just for Srila Prabhupadada as we who were there in 78, wanted. We didn't want their big Vyasana to move into such a sacred temple but GBC gurus would have none of that, they wanted their BIG chairs and that's what they did for quite a few years. Those stupid vyasanas all lined up. Anyway we went to Stockholm with Vegavan. 

Harikesa was now their guru. He was kinda crazy then. He would stay locked up in his room playing his saxaphone and complaining about seeing ghosts. Maybe the reality was that he and others on their group were really just snorting cocaine or taking LSD or other drugs.

ML: I remember the take over of the 11 gurus, I was in Vrindavana at the time. There has been a lot of use of black magic in Iskcon for maintaining the Vyasa-san and the power ... craziness usually is a symptom of an attack of black magic to the subtle body. I am not justifying Harikesha, but there was a reason to get rid of him, like Bhakti Tirtha, or Aindra Prabhu.

PADA: Jayatirtha's "peace Krishnas" came to the Berkeley temple and I was sitting out there chanting japa and they said, "There is that guy Puranjan, lets beat the stuffing out of that ***hole." Ooops, a Hansadutta person overheard that and he ran into the temple and rang the bell and he yelled, "Everyone outside." OK there was only maybe six of them, but they told the Jayatirtha people, "we don't like Puranjan, but we like you less. so we will defend him, and although there is more than 100 of you and only a few of us, we have the guns." 

That is how I was saved from the "peace Krishnas." I once told Jayatirtha he is not another Jesus and he cannot take sins, and later when he passed by me it sucked my life airs out, he was covered with a huge ball of sins around him. Very sinful man, a giant ball of sins in fact. ys pd

KL: Todd Jayatirtha never said he was Jesus etc and it was his entourage facilitating this illusion for their own little control and power games . When I questioned JT in Canada 87 and told him what "his followers" were saying about him and said "so who are you?" He said he was a disciple of Srila Prabhupada and not a very good one unfortunately. 

So you are another bitter and twisted soul it seems who is committing so much offences and vaisnava aparada to Srila Narayana Maha and S Sridhara M and to S Prabupada by your offensive nature which may have been influenced by all the lies and chinese whispers passed down unfortunately in ISKCON. S Prabhupada's International Krsna society could and should never be limited to an institution. Taking some sacrement (LSD) and chanting ecstatically is the other anarchistic end of the spectrum but can not be compared to GBC, teachers, sanayasis that were sexually abusing tiny children. WTFU.

PADA: Sorry! Jayatirtha HAD said MANY TIMES that he is a diksha guru, i.e. a person who can absorb sins like Jesus. When he was falling down his disciples were praying to save him from falling due to his "taking our sins." Self-evidently he was being advertised as a person who can absorb sins because they were thinking he is falling from taking their sins. 

Other GBC followers pray for their guru's taking their sins as well? When Jayatirtha passed by me on a narrow stairways, he knocked my breath out. The giant ball of sins surrounding him on the subtle plane was causing a disturbance to my life airs. Srila Prabhupada also told us if we neophytes become diksha gurus and take sins we will fall down, get sick or both. 

Many of them died. Jayatirtha was abusing children by telling them they have to worship him and the other 11 ship of fools people. 

That is abuse, to make children worship conditioned souls and LSD hounds as their messiahs. And so on. And Jayatirtha was telling everyone they had to work with the GBC, and so did Sridhara Maharaja and NM, and that is how the child abuse regime was enabled. Jayatirtha kicked me and my children out of ISKCON, he abused them by removing them from their home, and that was lucky because the children who stayed with his GBC guru program were treated terribly. Those of us who opposed their molester program were booted out by people like JT. That empowered and enabled the molester's program. ys pd


ISKCON's "Krishna Gurus": Srila Jayatirtha

And people like Sridhara Maharaja, Narayana Maharaja etc. also thought these 11 could absorbs sins like Jesus. Very foolish, it killed him. ys pd

KLT: I have never heard such horrendous offences as on here. The vine of devotion will certainly be killed off by such things and hard hearts and misfortune will be the result. I feel like I need to bathe in the Ganga, chant 3 million rounds to get purified and cleansed as soon as possible from all this. I pray for Lord Nityananda's, Lord Nrisimgha devas, Tulsi Maharanis total grace and forgiveness for all - otherwise no hope . The fact that the philosophy says we need to take initiation from a living Guru - is where it all falls down if no one is qualified. Luckily Tirthapada said he was only trying to facilitate in taking me to his Gurudeva 's - Srila Prabhupadas lotus feet !! Read original unadultered books!

PP: PADA makes a habit of offending the saintly vaisnavas for some fool hardy reasons. I can understand his statements but then he shows his true colours when he goes on to criticize Srila Narayana Maharaj and a great vaisnava as Bhakti Rasaka Sridhar Maharaj. Sometime we may not agree with what they did or advised but it was not these vaisnavas who brought down Iskcon to its changed level that it is today. The blame can only be put at the feet of those who lusted after Empire and they were going to use anyone who would endorse them.

[PADA: OK so they used Sridhara Maharaja and Narayan Maharaja to endorse them, that means these folks are co-responsible for the ensuing mess. In fact, they endorsed the leaders of that mess as acharyas.

Yes as soon as I said the GBC guru regime (aided and abetted by Sridhara Maharaja and NM) was creating a child abuse process, their followers said I was an offender. That is how they enabled the molesting infrastructure. And as soon as I said my children will never worship these deviants, and there is a molesting problem, JT kicked me out so he could enable and defend the evil doers. ys pd

BD: Bhakti Tirtha swami said the same, he was saying he got cancer because he was absorbing the sins of all his disciples and more. He was saying on his final days that he had asked Krsna to allow him to cleanse everyone of their sins. Meanwhile we know what happened to Hladini shakti mataji and another. They were sent to Liberia in the midst of a civil war and got murdered. One mataji got out and revealed to us all what went down. Pure devotees... Ha... Ha.... Ha !!

[PADA: Some people asked me why Gopa Vrndapal and Mula Prakriti and apparently some of their children ended up promoting Narayana Maharaja, when its well known: He criticizes Srila Prabhupada and his books; NM objected to our using the title "Prabhupada" when we were in Mayapura in 1971; NM said the 11 are monkeys -- and at the same time -- Prabhupada's successors; NM was a huge cheer leader of Tamal and their molester messiahs program etc.? 

Well there you have it, most people compromised with this process, and indeed, promoted the worship of the bogus gurus and / or their cheer leaders and enablers. NM also says we did not originate in Krishna's leela, Yani Kani Tulsi prayer is "karma kanda," worship of Lord Narasimgha in Radha Krishna's temple is bogus, and so on ad infinitum. He was against many of the things Prabhupada was doing, clearly.  

Same type problems we had with the Sanat / Mukunda / Prahlad / Krishna Kirtan / Pancali / Janardan / Dayalu Nitai's HKC Jaipur group. They formed a group to have  PADA "removed from the internet." Are they EVER going to remove the molester messiahs program from the internet? Nope, they NEVER, never EVER made any petition for that program to be removed from anywhere. HKC Jaipur people even told me that our idea that their favorite child buggery messiah's program is not fit to be worshiped "has no credibility." 

Who does have credibility? 

Instead, they told me I have to listen to Bhakta das, a cheer leader of Radhanath. Yep, as soon as these folks find a program of burying pedophiles in the dham, we have to listen to the cheer leaders of that program. Then they wonder why there has been so much crimes and molesting going on, when they are licking the boots of the advocates of that process? They promote the cheer leaders of the buggery messiah's program process, then they make pretend they are alarmed at the results? 

Then Prahlad and Kamadeva etc. ask me, "Why are you motivated for position"? OK so child molesting is not the problem, me being motivated is the problem. Me driving a taxi is the problem etc. This is what Sulochana called "bait and switch" to keep the evil doers in power. They asked the same thing to Sulochana, why are you motivated? Yep, Kirtanananda is not the problem, child molesting is not the problem, ok its YOU dissenters who are the problem! Hee hee!

Yep, they are in league and that is how all this mess was enabled, Sridhara Maharaja all the way down to these lesser enablers. Anyone who warns that the Titanic is going to sink unless action is taken -- is "motivated for position." OK never mind, you will sink then. Have a nice day in the water! Anyway, the good news is, more of this info is getting out and more folks are waking up.

Sri Abhirama Thakura Tirobhava tithi (disappearance)

Subject: Fw: Sri Abhirama Thakura Tirobhava tithi (disappearance)

Sri Abhirama Thakura Tirobhava tithi [disappearance day]

(Mayapura, West Bengal, Bharata bhumi time]
by Yasoda nandana dasa

Srila Prabhupada reveals the glories to Sri Abhirama Thakura.

rāmadāsa abhirāma--sakhya-premarāśi
ṣolasāṅgera kāṣṭha tuli' ye karila vāṅśī


rāmadāsa abhirāma—of the name Rāmadāsa Abhirāma; sakhya-prema—friendship; rāśi—great volume; ṣolasa-aṅgera—of sixteen knots; kaṣṭha—wood; tuli'-lifting; ye—one who; karila—made; vāṅśī—flute.

Rāmadāsa Abhirāma was fully absorbed in the mellow of friendship. He made a flute of a bamboo stick with sixteen knots.

Abhirāma was an inhabitant of Khānākula-kṛṣṇa-nagar.
Sri Caitanya-caritamrta - 1975 Edition : Cc. Adi-lila : Adi 10: The Trunk, Branches and Subbranches of the Caitanya Tree : Adi 10.116

śrī-rāmadāsa āra, gadādhara dāsa
caitanya-gosāñira bhakta rahe tāṅra pāśa


śrī-rāmadāsa—of the name Śrī Rāmadāsa; āra—and; gadādhara dāsa—of the name Gadādhara dāsa; caitanya-gosāñira—of Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; bhakta—devotees; rahe—stay; tāṅra pāśa—with Him.


Two devotees of Lord Caitanya, named Śrī Rāmadāsa and Gadādhara dāsa, always lived with Śrī Vīrabhadra Gosāñi.

Śrī Rāmadāsa, later known as Abhirāma Ṭhākura, was one of the twelve gopālas, cowherd boyfriends, of Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu. The Gaura-gaṇoddeśa-dīpikā, verse 126, states that Śrī Rāmadāsa was formerly Śrīdāmā. In Bhakti-ratnākara (Fourth Wave), there is a description of Śrīla Abhirāma Ṭhākura. By the order of Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu, Abhirāma Ṭhākura became a great ācārya and preacher of the Caitanya cult of devotional service. 

He was a very influential personality, and non-devotees were very afraid of him. Empowered by Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu, he was always in ecstasy and was extremely kind to all fallen souls. It is said that if he offered obeisances to any stone other than a śālagrāma-śilā, it would immediately fracture.

Ten miles southwest of the Cāṅpāḍāṅgā railway station on the narrow-gauge railway line from Howrah, in Calcutta, to Āmtā, a village in the Hugalī district, is a small town named Khānākūla-kṛṣṇanagara, where the temple of Abhirāma Ṭhākura is situated. During the rainy season, when this area is inundated with water, people must go there by another line, which is now called the southeastern railway. 

On this line there is a station named Kolāghāṭa, from which one has to go by steamer to Rāṇīcaka. Seven and a half miles north of Rāṇīcaka is Khānākūla. The temple of Abhirāma Ṭhākura is situated in Kṛṣṇanagara, which is near the kūla (bank) of the Khānā (Dvārakeśvara River); therefore this place is celebrated as Khānākūla-kṛṣṇanagara. 

Outside of the temple is a bakula tree. This place is known as Siddha-bakula-kuñja. It is said that when Abhirāma Ṭhākura came there, he sat down under this tree. In Khānākūla-kṛṣṇanagara there is a big fair held every year in the month of Caitra (March-April) on the Kṛṣṇa-saptamī, the seventh day of the dark moon. Many hundreds and thousands of people gather for this festival. The temple of Abhirāma Ṭhākura has a very old history. 

The Deity in the temple is known as Gopīnātha. There are many sevaita families living near the temple. It is said that Abhirāma Ṭhākura had a whip and that whoever he touched with it would immediately become an elevated devotee of Kṛṣṇa. Among his many disciples, Śrīmān Śrīnivāsa Ācārya was the most famous and the most dear, but it is doubtful that he was his initiated disciple.
... No one can count the unlimited followers of Nityananda Prabhu. I have mentioned some of them just for my self-purification. All these branches, the devotees of Lord Nityananda Prabhu, being full of ripened fruits of love of Krsna, distributed these fruits to all they met, flooding them with love of Krsna. All these devotees had unlimited strength to deliver unobstructed, unceasing love of Krsna. By their own strength they could offer anyone Krsna and love of Krsna. (Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Goswami CC Adi-lila 11:57-60)

Chennai Has Become Christian Fraud Center (VIDEO)

PADA: Worship of Jesus is not bad in itself, if done properly. However, there are many unscrupulous folks making a false show of religion in India, or even in the USA for that matter with some "magic healing" TV programs and etc. And that includes some really sentimental Christian programs as well as a number of bogus Hindu God men. 

There was a secretary at one place I visited and we got into a discussion about religion. She showed me some footage of her church's "speaking in tongues" program, and it looked a lot like some of the footage we have here. OK its good that they want to connect with God, bravo for that. 

Yet the process has to be substantial and authorized by the Supreme, or it can drift off into very sahajiya or false displays of religious sentiment. At the same time, I have to say that some of their focus, enthusiasm and dedication is something we should learn to borrow from. I was a security guard at a Christian faith singing and dancing program in a big auditorium once upon a time, with various musical performances. And everyone singing loudly and jumping up and down, and it was quite inspiring because of all their faith and enthusiasm. We certainly need more of that!    

At the same time, some Hindu scholars have pointed out, Hinduism is going to find itself in trouble if they do not make a plan to include for example the Dalits and other alienated groups, because they will convert to Christian or Muslim faith and become independent of the India culture. Srila Prabhupada said that the artificial brahmana by birth monopoly program has destroyed the culture in India, and unless that is fixed, then more folks will drift off the Hindu platform and become more engaged in another process. 

Of course that process has also happened in ISKCON, many devotees gave up on ISKCON and drifted into other programs for the same reason, the top heavy monopoly of false authorities ruined the religion and created an exodus. ys pd

A Great Institution Was Lost by Whimsical Ways (SP video)

Happy Easter! (a few SP quotes)

The Science of Self Realization
By His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Chapter 4, Understanding Krsna and Christ

Jesus Christ Was a Guru

The Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam states that any bona fide preacher of God consciousness must have the qualities of titikṣā (tolerance) and karuṇā (compassion). In the character of Lord Jesus Christ we find both these qualities. He was so tolerant that even while he was being crucified, he didn’t condemn anyone. And he was so compassionate that he prayed to God to forgive the very persons who were trying to kill him. (Of course, they could not actually kill him. But they were thinking that he could be killed, so they were committing a great offense.) As Christ was being crucified he prayed, “Father, forgive them. They know not what they are doing.”

A preacher of God consciousness is a friend to all living beings. Lord Jesus Christ exemplified this by teaching, “Thou shalt not kill.” But the Christians like to misinterpret this instruction. They think the animals have no soul, and therefore they think they can freely kill billions of innocent animals in the slaughterhouses. So although there are many persons who profess to be Christians, it would be very difficult to find one who strictly follows the instructions of Lord Jesus Christ.

A Vaiṣṇava is unhappy to see the suffering of others. Therefore, Lord Jesus Christ agreed to be crucified—to free others from their suffering. But his followers are so unfaithful that they have decided, “Let Christ suffer for us, and we’ll go on committing sin.” They love Christ so much that they think, “My dear Christ, we are very weak. We cannot give up our sinful activities. So you please suffer for us.”

Jesus Christ taught, “Thou shalt not kill.” But his followers have now decided, “Let us kill anyway,” and they open big, modern, scientific slaughterhouses. “If there is any sin, Christ will suffer for us.” This is a most abominable conclusion.

Christ can take the sufferings for the previous sins of his devotees. But first they have to be sane: “Why should I put Jesus Christ into suffering for my sins? Let me stop my sinful activities.”

Suppose a man—the favorite son of his father—commits a murder. And suppose he thinks, “If there is any punishment coming, my father can suffer for me.” Will the law allow it? When the murderer is arrested and says, “No, no. You can release me and arrest my father; I am his pet son,” will the police officials comply with that fool’s request? He committed the murder, but he thinks his father should suffer the punishment! Is that a sane proposal? “No. You have committed the murder; you must be hanged.” Similarly, when you commit sinful activities, you must suffer—not Jesus Christ. This is God’s law.
Jesus Christ was such a great personality—the son of God, the representative of God. He had no fault. Still, he was crucified. He wanted to deliver God consciousness, but in return they crucified him—they were so thankless. They could not appreciate his preaching. But we appreciate him and give him all honor as the representative of God.

Of course, the message that Christ preached was just according to his particular time, place, and country, and just suited for a particular group of people. But certainly he is the representative of God. Therefore we adore Lord Jesus Christ and offer our obeisances to him.

Once, in Melbourne, a group of Christian ministers came to visit me. They asked, “What is your idea of Jesus Christ?” I told them, “He is our guru. He is preaching God consciousness, so he is our spiritual master.” The ministers very much appreciated that.

Actually, anyone who is preaching God’s glories must be accepted as a guru. Jesus Christ is one such great personality. We should not think of him as an ordinary human being. The scriptures say that anyone who considers the spiritual master to be an ordinary man has a hellish mentality. If Jesus Christ were an ordinary man, then he could not have delivered God consciousness.


…the purpose of all Vedic instructions is to achieve the ultimate goal of life—to go back to Godhead. All scriptures from all countries aim at this goal. This has also been the message of all religious reformers or ācāryas. In the West, for example, Lord Jesus Christ spread this same message. Similarly, Lord Buddha and Muhammad. No one advises us to make our permanent settlement here in this material world. There may be small differences according to country, time, and circumstance, and according to scriptural injunction, but the main principle that we are not meant for this material world but for the spiritual world is accepted by all genuine transcendentalists.

Bhakti Caru Swami On ISKCON Internet "Blasphemy"

[PADA: So the people who say that machine gun swamis, Reno gamblers, LSD popping acharyas, deviants, sexual predators, drunkards, criminals, mayavadis etc. are not Krishna's successors are "blasphemers"? And -- what about the supporters of that same deviated "acharya parampara" (like BCS)? Notice that he says "so many people did wrong things." What? Acharyas are doing wrong things? And saying that acharyas are often deviants -- is ISKCON?

Nope, the people doing wrong things are not, were not, could not have been Krishna's guru successors. This is the maya that BCS is talking about. 

So the people who are claiming to be as good as God, but they are doing wrong things, also voted in Bhakti Caru swami as the co-member of that debauchee guru sampradaya? Anyway this is good news, it means, their people are reading our stuff on the internet, and its more and more coming back to these folks. I know, because some of their folks write to me, heh heh heh. ys pd] 


RE: Chitradevi's Suicide / No room at the Inn for Young or Old

Apr 19, 2019 — From FRANCE 

In nine videos, mother Kishori devi dasi (ACBSP) explains the circumstances behind Citradevi dasi's suicide a number of years ago in France. Having revealed the hidden truth of the situation, Kishori dd now finds herself banned for life from ISKCON New Mayapur, the temple in which she served for many years.

After hearing her story, please sign this petition asking the GBC to put an end to the banning of Kishori dd. Thank you for the consideration you will give to it, for the sake of the truth.

your servants,
Mantra Yoga Team 


https://youtu.be/ENnwS6yDftQ (this is one of a series)


[PADA: Yes, a number of older -- and even formerly higher placed senior devotees -- ask me, where can I go for shelter now? And similarly, a number of newer and younger people ask me the same thing, where can we go and take shelter now? And the unfortunate answer is, there really are very few Prabhupadanuga programs in the West. 

Most of the Prabhupada devotees have no temples or facilities for a program, and so its pretty much grass roots home based at present. And! Presenting the GBC with a petition is really a giant waste of time and effort, they simply do not care about devotee's opinions which should be self-evident at this point. 

There are some loose knit communities in places like Alachua where their group gets together from time to time, but they really do not have a temple. So its a problem all round. I do not think that most of the Prabhupada devotees ever thought it would come to this state, where it was pretty much outlawed to worship their acharya Srila Prabhupada, and you'd have to promote the local "GBC voted in" living guru from the debauchee messiah's project, or else face being banned and so on. 

One thing this lady mentions is that some of these leaders are crazy, cruel and sort of mad men. Well yes and no. They are not totally mad though, they know exactly what the plan is, to gradually filter out the Prabhupada devotees and hi-jack the properties for their bogus living guru project, and then the gurus or their supporters also get a piece of the stolen pie. And if they have to be cruel to enact the plan, so be it. 

So they are sometimes appearing as insane, like for example Satsvarupa, but they are not really that insane. There is well thought out diabolical plot to dismantle ISKCON and make it a program of worship of deviants as gurus, and its working quite well for all these people because this is all calculated and planned out. They may appear as mad fools, but they all know what is the plan and they are sticking to it. 

Anyway, its amazing that we get questions from both older people and younger people, where can we go now? So this is not happening by accident, there is a clever plot and scheme to make it so that people will be driven out and barred from access to ISKCON without saying the magic words, "I will support the hokey hokester-pada program." 

Now this process has apparently driven some folks to suicide, and we believe that a number of devotees de facto -- died of suicide -- because they died from things like alcohol poison, drug overdose, cancer and many other things that caused them to depart prematurely. And had they been in the shelter of a bona fide temple, that would not have happened. 

Same thing with some of the ex-kulis who died from suicide. 

One of the kulis left a note here, which was read after he killed himself. It read "I have no place in this religion." So this is very sinful, to keep all these people out on some trumped up bogus program of worship of deviants. Anyway, if anyone can help this lady, they should, this is another sign of how badly things can get when we have a bogus guru process going on. 

Most devotees thought I was "way over the top" complaining about this process all along, but maybe now they are seeing the rotten fruits coming from the poisoned tree, and how its making life miserable even for many / most rank and file, never mind ISKCON's name is in the tank and the movement has been bankrupted by these people and so on. So maybe more people are starting to realize, this was a crisis, as we said it was all along. ys pd]

Sanskrit Lover (In Sanskrit!) VIDEO

Lord Balaram Rasayatra

Lord Balarāma became very anxious to see His father and mother, Mahārāja Nanda and Yaśodā. Therefore, He started for Vṛndāvana on a chariot with great enthusiasm. The inhabitants of Vṛndāvana had been anxious to see Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma for a very long time. When Lord Balarāmareturned to Vṛndāvana, all the cowherd boys and the gopīs had grown up; but still, on His arrival, they all embraced Him, and Balarāma embraced them in reciprocation. After this He came before Mahārāja Nanda and Yaśodā and offered His respectful obeisances unto them. 

In response, mother Yaśodā and Nanda Mahārāja offered their blessings unto Him. They addressed Him as Jagadīśvara, or the Lord of the universe who maintains everyone. The reason for this was that both Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma maintain all living entities, and yet Nanda and Yaśodā were put into such difficulties on account of Their absence. Feeling like this, they embraced Balarāma and, seating Him on their laps, began their perpetual crying, wetting Balarāma with their tears. 

Lord Balarāma then offered His respectful obeisances to the elderly cowherd men and accepted the obeisances of the younger cowherd men. Thus, according to their different ages and relationships, Lord Balarāma exchanged feelings of friendship with them. He shook hands with those who were His equals in age and friendship, and with loud laughing embraced each one of them.

After being received by the cowherd men and boys, the gopīs, and King Nanda and Yaśodā, Lord Balarāma sat down, feeling satisfied, and they all surrounded Him. First Lord Balarāma inquired from them about their welfare, and then, not having seen Him for such a long time, they began to ask Him different questions. The inhabitants of Vṛndāvana had sacrificed everything for Kṛṣṇa, simply being captivated by the lotus eyes of the Lord. Because of their great desire to love Kṛṣṇa, they never desired anything like elevation to the heavenly planets or merging into the effulgence of Brahman to become one with the Absolute Truth. 

They were not even interested in enjoying a life of opulence, but were satisfied in living a simple life in the village as cowherd men. They were always absorbed in thoughts of Kṛṣṇa and did not desire any personal benefits, and they were all so much in love with Him that in His absence their voices faltered when they began to inquire from Balarāmajī.

First Nanda Mahārāja and Yaśodāmayī inquired, "My dear Balarāma, are our friends like Vasudeva and others in the family doing well? Now You and Kṛṣṇa are grown-up married men with children. In the happiness of family life, do You sometimes remember Your poor father and mother, Nanda Mahārāja and Yaśodādevī? It is very good news that the most sinful King Kaṁsa has been killed by You and that our friends like Vasudevaand the others who had been harassed by him, have now been relieved. It is also very good news that both You and Kṛṣṇa defeated Jarāsandha and Kālayavana, who now is dead, and that You are now living in a fortified residence in Dvārakā."

When the gopīs arrived, Lord Balarāma glanced over them with loving eyes. Being overjoyed, the gopīs, who had so long been mortified on account of Kṛṣṇa's and Balarāma's absence, began to ask about the welfare of the two brothers. They specifically asked Balarāma whether Kṛṣṇa was enjoying His life surrounded by the enlightened women of Dvārakā Purī. "Does He sometimes remember His father Nanda and His mother Yaśodāand the other friends with whom He so intimately behaved while he was in Vṛndāvana? 

Does Kṛṣṇa have any plans to come here to see His mother Yaśodā and does He remember us gopīs who are now pitiably bereft of His company? Kṛṣṇa might have forgotten us in the midst of the cultured women of Dvārakā, but as far as we are concerned, we are still remembering Him by collecting flowers and sewing them into garlands. When He does not come, however, we simply pass our time by crying. If only He would come here and accept these garlands that we have made. 

Dear Lord Balarāma, descendant of Daśārha, You know that we would give up everything for Kṛṣṇa's friendship. Even in great distress one cannot give up the connection of family members, but although it might be impossible for others, we gave up our fathers, mothers, sisters and relatives without caring at all about our renunciation. Then, all of a sudden, Kṛṣṇa renounced us and went away. He broke off our intimate relationship without any serious consideration and left for a foreign country. But He was so clever and cunning that He manufactured very nice words. He said, 'My dear gopīs,please do not worry. The service you have rendered Me is impossible for Me to repay.' After all, we are women, so how could we disbelieve Him? Now we can understand that His sweet words were simply for cheating us."

Another gopī, protesting Kṛṣṇa's absence from Vṛndāvana, began to say: "My dear Balarāmajī, we are of course village girls, so Kṛṣṇa could cheat us in that way, but what about the women of Dvārakā? Don't think they are as foolish as we are! We village women might be misled by Kṛṣṇa, but the women in the city of Dvārakā are very clever and intelligent. Therefore I would be surprised if such city women could be misled by Kṛṣṇa and could believe His words."
Then another gopī began to speak. "My dear friend," she said, "Kṛṣṇa is very clever in using words. No one can compete with Him in that art. He can manufacture such colorful words and talk so sweetly that the heart of any woman would be misled. Besides that, He has perfected the art of smiling very attractively, and by seeing His smile women become mad after Him and would give themselves to Him without any hesitation."

Another gopī, after hearing this, said, "My dear friends, what is the use in talking about Kṛṣṇa? If you are at all interested in passing away time by talking, let us talk on some subject other than Him. If cruel Kṛṣṇa can pass His time without us, why can't we pass our time without Kṛṣṇa? Of course, Kṛṣṇa is passing His days very happily without us, but the difference is that we cannot pass our days very happily without Him."

When the gopīs were talking in this way, their feelings for Kṛṣṇa became more and more intensified, and they were experiencing Kṛṣṇa's smiling, Kṛṣṇa's words of love, Kṛṣṇa's attractive features, Kṛṣṇa's characteristics and Kṛṣṇa's embraces. By the force of their ecstatic feelings, it appeared to them that Kṛṣṇa was personally present and dancing before them. Because of their sweet remembrance of Kṛṣṇa, they could not check their tears, and they began to cry without consideration.

Lord Balarāma could, of course, understand the ecstatic feelings of the gopīs, and therefore He wanted to pacify them. He was expert in presenting an appeal, and thus, treating the gopīs very respectfully, He began to narrate the stories of Kṛṣṇa so tactfully that the gopīs became satisfied. In order to keep the gopīs in Vṛndāvana satisfied, Lord Balarāma stayed there continually for two months, namely the months of Caitra (March-April) and Vaiśākha (April-May). For those two months He kept Himself among the gopīs, and He passed every night with them in the forest of Vṛndāvana in order to satisfy their desire for conjugal love. 

Thus Balarāma also enjoyed the rāsa dance with the gopīs during those two months. Since the season was springtime, the breeze on the bank of the Yamunā was blowing very mildly, carrying the aroma of different flowers, especially of the flower known as kaumudī. Moonlight filled the sky and spread everywhere, and thus the banks of the Yamunā appeared to be very bright and pleasing, and Lord Balarāma enjoyed the company of the gopīs there.

The demigod known as Varuṇa sent his daughter Vāruṇī in the form of liquid honey oozing from the hollows of the trees. Because of this honey the whole forest became aromatic, and the sweet aroma of the liquid honey, Vāruṇī, captivated Balarāmajī. Balarāmajī and all the gopīs became very much attracted by the taste of Vāruṇī, and all of them drank it together. 

While drinking this natural beverage, Vāruṇī, all the gopīs chanted the glories of Lord Balarāma, and Lord Balarāma felt very happy, as if He had become intoxicated by drinking that Vāruṇī beverage. His eyes rolled in a pleasing attitude. He was decorated with long garlands of forest flowers, and the whole situation appeared to be a great function of happiness because of this transcendental bliss. Lord Balarāma smiled beautifully, and the drops of perspiration decorating His face appeared to be soothing morning dew.

While Balarāma was in that happy mood, He desired to enjoy the company of the gopīs in the water of the Yamunā. Therefore, He called Yamunā to come nearby. But Yamunā neglected the order of Balarāmajī, considering Him to be intoxicated. Lord Balarāma became very much displeased at Yamunā's neglecting His order. He immediately wanted to scratch the land near the river with His plowshare. Lord Balarāma has two weapons, a plow and a club, and He takes service from them when they are required. 

This time He wanted to bring the Yamunā by force, and He took the help of His plow. He wanted to punish Yamunā because she did not come in obedience to His order. He addressed Yamunā: "You wretched river! You did not care for My order. Now I shall teach you a lesson! You did not come to Me voluntarily. Now with the help of My plow I shall force you to come. I shall divide you into hundreds of scattered streams!"

When Yamunā was threatened like this, she became greatly afraid of the power of Balarāma and immediately came in person, falling at His lotus feet and praying thus: "My dear Balarāma, You are the most powerful personality, and You are pleasing to everyone. Unfortunately, I forgot Your glorious, exalted position, but now I have come to my senses, and I remember that You hold all the planetary systems on Your head merely by Your partial expansion of Śeṣa. You are the sustainer of the whole universe. 

My dear Supreme Personality of Godhead, You are full of six opulences. Because I forgot Your omnipotence, I have mistakenly disobeyed Your order, and thus I have become a great offender. But, my dear Lord, please know that I am a surrendered soul unto You. You are very much affectionate to Your devotees. Therefore, please excuse my impudence and mistakes and, by Your causeless mercy, may You now release me."

Upon displaying this submissive attitude, Yamunā was forgiven, and when she came nearby, Lord Balarāma wanted to enjoy the pleasure of swimming within her water along with the gopīs in the same way an elephant enjoys himself along with his many she-elephants. After a long time, when Lord Balarāma had enjoyed to His full satisfaction, He came out of the water, and immediately a goddess of fortune offered Him a nice blue garment and a valuable necklace made of gold. 

After taking bath in the Yamunā, Lord Balarāma, dressed in blue garments and decorated with golden ornaments, looked very attractive to everyone. Lord Balarāma's complexion is white, and when He was properly dressed He looked exactly like the white elephant of King Indra in the heavenly planet. The Rver Yamunā still has many small branches due to being scratched by the plowshare of Lord Balarāma. And all these branches of the River Yamunā still glorify the omnipotency of Lord Balarāma.

Lord Balarāma and the gopīs enjoyed transcendental pastimes together every night for two months, and time passed away so quickly that all those nights appeared to be only one night. In the presence of Lord Balarāma, all the gopīs and inhabitants of Vṛndāvana became as cheerful as they had been before in the presence of both brothers, Lord Kṛṣṇa and Lord Balarāma.

Thus ends the Bhaktivedanta purport of the Second Volume, Tenth Chapter, of Kṛṣṇa, "Lord Balarāma Visits Vṛndāvana." link to this page:
