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]
