India Water Crisis Affects 100,000,000 People in 5 Years

PADA: OK lets hope this calculation is not correct. But then again, maybe it is correct. And Kali Yuga is just getting started. A devotee told me, this is the karma reaction of the ISKCON GBC's stopping Lord Chaitanya's Hari Nama movement. These bogus leaders have indirectly or directly destroyed the entire planet, because hari nama was the only way to prevent these catastrophic events. Possibly true, in which case, their karma is going to be excessively bad. 

In any event it seems India is in for a bumpy ride -- no matter what, unless something drastic happens and soon. 

Without water, life as we know it ceases to exist. The major water shortages ALREADY existing now are making life very difficult, if not intolerably hard, for many to live -- at all. It also seems like Kali yuga lasting for another 428,000 years and having a bunch of survivors existing then, is a bit optimistic the way it looks now. 

Sad, but it is self evident that Krishna and His agents are not happy with the way things are being managed at present, and the world is suffering some sort of increasingly stringent collective reaction. 

Desalinizing ocean water is a possible solution, but that will require a whole lot of investment, giant pipeline distribution networks, power for pumps, and so forth, a huge undertaking even in a more technological country. If that will be the solution, or even a partial one, they better get on with making it now.

"Don't Copy and Paste Srila Prabhupada's Quotes"

Who should we be quoting from?

DD: The most offensive comment seen during an argument!

"Why don't you type your own comments instead of blindly copying and pasting Srila Prabhupada's quotes".

Sigh!! Sometimes it's hard to fathom the level to which intelligence has fallen today.

"So a person, authorized person in the line of disciplic succession, he does not speak by his own authority. Immediately he'll quote from the Vedic literature to support his proposition."

Lecture on Śrīmād Bhāgavatam 1.2.5 -- Aligarh, October 9, 1976.


PADA: Yes, this is odd. Other devotees also sent us a complaint that the GBC's Mahatma das has been simply deleting Srila Prabhupada quotes from his discussion groups. This has been a problem all along, as soon as we made a few limited edition photocopied papers way back in the late 1970s -- quoting Srila Prabhupada about sahajiyas (like Jayatirtha) using the guru post for illicit sex and drugs, we were told not to distribute our "offensive" position papers around ISKCON property (not really "our" papers -- but quotes from Srila Prabhupada). And so it has gone as a GBC type policy on ever since.

A devotee once was laughing and joking about a quote he sent me from HKC Jaipur's "Prahlad das" (Paul Coats?) who was chastising me for "copying and pasting" all the time. Yep, if there is one thing we cannot have, its copied and pasted quotes from the acharya! Oddly, same complaint the GBC has for me. 

Even my Christian friends cannot hardly believe I am being chastised for quoting (copying and pasting) the guru of the religion. If a person is a sincere follower of the religion, would he not be happy to see the words of the guru being copied and pasted? I have some Christian friends who copy and paste Bible verses and send them to one another, not sure why this should not be done by Vaishnavas? 

I once quoted a few things to a GBC guru about how we are not supposed to imitate the acharyas and he said, "Oh yea, I have seen these quotes a number of times." Right, but we need to ignore them? So this seems to be a big problem the whole time. We are not actually allowed to copy and paste the instructions of the acharya around ISKCON. And then many speculative quotes are taking over instead. If the words of the acharya are the "repeated words of Krishna," then banning the words of the acharya is banning Krishna's words. Or what?

The good news is, more and more people are catching on to this trick. That is why Srila Prabhupada wanted his books distributed all over the place. Later on, when deviant people would change his program, the innocent people could figure that out simply by -- reading his books, and recognizing that the deviants are not following his teachings. Yep, more people are sending me this same complaint, they are not allowed to quote the acharya, people are catching on here! ys pd] 

India MPs Absent For Water Crisis Discussion

PADA: Yep, this is like the GBC. When there is a crisis, we cannot find these guys to discuss it, heh heh heh. This is Kali yuga, the governments will be taxing the citizens, but not helping the citizens. Srila Prabhupada said hari nama samkirtana would solve the water crisis, will they advocate for that? Nope. ys pd

Nuclear War is USA Greatest Threat (Tulsi Gabbard Video)

[PADA: Well this is true, nuclear war is the greatest threat to to the world. For starters, that type war targets big cities full of non-combatants, which is a very troubling policy in itself.  Of course then -- all the other beings, like the birds and other animals etc. will suffer terribly as well. Yes, USA should be for tamping down the war rhetoric and trying to calm the situation down. Srila Prabhupada said hari nama samkirtana could prevent a war, and its sad that his process was stunted and nearly destroyed wholesale by a few motivated leaders. ys pd]

Petition for Westerners Visas in India

[PADA: This is quite true. Most devotees cannot participate in the GBC's ISKCON program in the West. Thus a number of them are fleeing to India to get some spiritual program in their lives. Problem is, there are not many organized programs for independent Westerners in India either, and so they cannot find advocates and sponsors for their visas there either. 

What is really needed is to fix the Western devotee's program so people can participate here, and simultaneously to start some sort of a devotee's refugee program in India that has some organized method of assisting people to get longer visas there. 

A number of devotees have just gone to India and got into trouble by not being able to extend their temporary tourist visas, and many of them are poor and they cannot hardly afford to keep flying back to the West to get another visa -- then going back to India (as some folks have been doing). Longer term visas will not be available most likely, unless there is some structured organization that can vouch to care for these semi-citizens and advocate for their longer stay. ys pd]

ISKCON's Mahatma Dasa Wins by Losing! (Video)

PADA: OK You win! By losing?

Mahatma is now making videos like this, really about his apparent mundane marriage counselling program. Lose by winning also sounds like some sort of mundane psycho-babble, because -- it is.

This is all fitting together with the other "new age" GBC programs that a number of the other leaders have been making all along. And all this fits in with their overall Hindu-ization, car poojas, wedding hall rentals, demigod worship, bogus yogi speakers at temples, and so forth. ISKCON is changing into a sort of Hindu-ized / new age hodge podge, which is EXACTLY what Srila Prabhupada was never in favor of. 

This has been going on all along, here are a few examples:  

Jayatirtha introduced his LSD and ecstacy drug program to "update" ISKCON.

Kirtanananda wanted the devotees to wear brown monk's robes.

Hansadutta wanted the devotees to have a lot of guns, and worship a Vodka drinking sexual predator as their messiah to "update" the process.

Bhavananda had a sort of gay program going on, which he thought would update things.

Satsvarupa wanted to introduce his whack-doodle art as the new representation of the parampara from God.

Someone sent me a picture of people tied up in hell and said, "this is also what Satsvarupa is saying with his art, he is tied up in hell, and he wants you to join him there, also tied up in hell." Sheesh!

Hrdayananda is famous for saying Krishna consciousness needs a "Krishna West" update.

Krishna West: The fact that culturally appropriate uniforms may bring certain sociological advantages does not prove that ISKCON’s current “uniform” is appropriate or practical in the West. Rather, I believe that our strange appearance has erected a high, impassable wall that separates the fallen souls from the devotees. If modern society is a headless body, ISKCON today is surely a disembodied head.

ISKCON is a "disembodied head"? Wow, so the enemies of ISKCON do not have to criticize the movement, the leaders are doing that for them.   

Radhanath is getting his people to preach all sorts of new age psycho-babbling. And Bhakti Vikas swami had to retract his criticism of Radhanath's writings.

Bhakti Tirtha swami was preaching about the lost continent of Mu, and all sorts of other tin foil hats speculations.


OK, ISKCON has deteriorated, and now its promoting the glories of various bogus yogis (like those found in Radhanath's book) and there seems to be a lot more emphasis on mundane yoga classes, new age therapy type preaching, and other mumbo-jumbo foolishness going on. Now Mahatma is simply joining the new age "marriage therapy" program with his "relationships counselling." 

In a society that has way worse divorce rates that the regular citizens? 

Why? Often because Mahatma's "gurus" are interfering in the marriages. For example, ordering people to get divorced and / or to fight with a spouse who does not share the same GBC's guru process. A woman just told me her "guru" had told her to divorce her husband, because he was talking about something that he had read on PADA web sites while in the temple. 

Kirtanananda was famous for his marriage breaking preaching, and that is why the Mahatma program buried him in a samadhi?  

Mahatma das also inspired many of his God brothers to take sins as diksha gurus, and they mostly got sick, fell down and many died prematurely, and that is a win, win, win. For Kali Yuga's agenda? Yes, many of the victims of this process suffered badly, a number died, all because Srila Prabhupada says, if we neophytes take sins "you will have to suffer."  

Is causing suffering and death for your own God brothers -- a win? Of course this begs the question, who would say that causing people to become sick, fall down into scandals, or even die, is a "winning situation"? Never mind ISKCON went down the tubes when many of these gurus went down. 

Tens of thousands of people "blooped" when their gurus "blooped," and this made ISKCON into a empty desert. Never mind the widely publicized scandals then made it very hard to recruit new replacements. This is all winning, winning and winning, but for whom, Beelzebub?

Mahatma's pal Gunagrahi was made into a big cheeze bag authority and guru, who was watching porno. He made a huge mess out of the lives of hundreds, perhaps thousands of devotees in South America. This created a huge exodus of devotees over to the Paramadvaiti / Gaudiya Matha programs there, or they just left in disgust. Another big win?

And the porno swami mess created yet another sannyasa / guru scandal for ISKCON, which also drives people away -- in droves. A win, indeed a double win, or triple win. For whom? The Gaudiya Matha? Kali Yuga? Or whom else? 

Then, as Mahatma's porno pada messiah was evidently in a lot of pain, dying, and on his way to the hospital to die, a person was still touching his feet. Why? To give him another boat load of karma to take with him into the next life. Or to finish him off in this life with more sins. Or what? Mahatma helps porno pada take a boat load of karma, but Srila Prabhupada says that is forbidden for us neophytes, because the process of absorbing the sins of others will make us suffer. Did I forget to mention, porno pada did have to suffer, and greatly? 

Suppose one is dying, because Srila Prabhupada says we have to suffer for taking other's sins. Then, the way to fix this is - MORE people are still touching one's feet and giving one MORE and MORE karma. Again, exactly "who" is winning here? Same thing with Jayapataka, he is suffering from taking sins, so the Mahatma program's plan is -- JPS takes even more disciples to add to his boat load of karma / sins. Of course people were asking for prayers to help Bhakti Tirtha swami when he was ill "from taking our sins" and so forth.

Founder father of the illicit sex acharya program.

And then Mahatma says all this is -- a win, win, win situation? You guys won what exactly? Your best pal had to get terminal cancer, likely from taking sins, and you co-caused that to happen by saying these people can take sins. 

Porno PADA Gunagrahi.

Yep, we are winning -- by losing! 

I also saw a big exchange about the new age preaching of Gopal Krishna's and Radhanath's people in India, by people in India. They were all agreeing -- its fraud and deviation. Anyway, all this begs the question, did these people enter ISKCON to water it down to make it ineffective, as some are saying? Maybe so. In any event, at least more people are waking up and agreeing with PADA, this is all a huge "mission drift" from the original teachings of Krishna and Srila Prabhupada. 

We are going to bury sexual predators and porno swamis in samadhis, and they think Krishna will not get his Yama dutta agents to take action to send them packing to a dire destination? A bogus psychic was sued here for giving bad marriage advice, maybe that should be done for Mahatma's bad advice? Heh heh heh. ys pd

ISKCON / Jesus / Ritviks / Etc. (PADA)

PADA: There seems to be a pattern of our "Krishna devotee" opponents attacking the worship of Jesus (and Srila Prabhupada) as "the ritvik deviation." Translation, we cannot worship a "posthumous, post-samadhi, post mortem person." Ummm, like Krishna and His acharyas?

Worse! There seems to be a WIDESPREAD pattern here. Various ISKCON GBC guru folks, Gaudiya Matha folks, Narayan Maharaja folks, and / or their clones like Torben, Ajit Krishna, Hanuman Croatia, Kailash Chandra, and of course GBC clone folks like Bhakta das and their assembled associates, all unitedly call our Prabhupadanuga idea "the bogus Christian idea." 

Yep, worship of the acharya is a really bad idea! 

Except, Srila Prabhupada said that Jesus is still taking the sins of his sincere followers even now, after 2,000 years. This begs the question, who is going to have the bhogha offered to him, who is going to accept the disciples, who will absolve sins etc. -- if there is no "current" acharya for people to take shelter of in ISKCON? We cannot offer bhogha to the guru, we cannot offer the disciples to the guru, we thus have no path for people to be absolved of sins. So there is no process for people to move forward with. That is essentially blocking people from taking shelter of the acharya, while presenting no valid alternate. 

And is this not also an insult to Jesus, to say his worship is some sort of deviation? And hasn't this created a huge mess, having a concoction of conditioned souls taking sins without authority. This is making them fall down, get sick, create huge scandals, and die prematurely. We have not yet figured out -- this process isn't working? 

So we cannot have people worshiping Srila Prabhupada, or Jesus, thus there is no avenue for people to have their sins absolved, for starters. Then we might wonder why so many devotees are suffering from depression, drug addiction, alcohol problems, if not cancer, and so many other terminal illnesses. It might be partly because, their process for absolving sins is being checked. And thus these people are keeping their own sins to fester, grow and flourish within themselves, with no real process to purify and jettison them. Thus their sins are staying with them and not moving away, which will never have a happy ending.

Rocana even wrote a giant paper complaining about "The Church of Ritvik" where he compares the Prabhupadanuga's idea to -- the Christian's church.  And he wrote an "ISKCON constitution" where the GBC's existing guru voting process is made "more efficient" by having tighter legislation to control the voted in gurus. And people like Kailash Chandra are ghost writing articles for Rocana's site. 

Rocana does not seem to comprehend that a "managing committee" of defective conditioned soul people does not "manage" the Lord and the Lord's acharyas? Did we forget to mention the GBC has not been able to manage -- and have controlling dominion over -- a bag of fleas, because they cannot seem to control countless MINOR LEAGUE problems, such as giving proper food to their gurukula children. 

And then there are so many other deviations that are going on left, right and center -- right under their own noses. And on top of all this mess, they are all of a sudden going to stand up and start to "manage" their voted in guru successors to God. This job that is generally not done by any of the jeeva souls anyway -- even the pure ones, and would basically require considerable spiritual ability, such as being on the same level as the Supreme being.

And besides that, hardly no one is waiting for Rocana's "guru reform" to take root and eventually fix things. Rather they are leaving the ISKCON ship in droves and they are not coming back, end of story. That is because, waiting for deviants posing as gurus to "reform" is not a very useful path, since they never reformed in the Gaudiya Matha since 1936. People need to get on with the rest of their lives, and they are not going to sit around and spend it "waiting" for a day dream of "reforming the gurus" to come true.

The GBC / Rocana thinks -- if we simply make a few adjustments, then the GBC guru management system will suddenly right itself and start managing "the sum total of the demigods" better than they have to date. Their previous "managing" resulted in: banning, beating, molesting, police raids, lawsuits, bankruptcy cases, and murders, but what is the problem? We just have to make a few adjustments and this can ALL be fixed. Yes, this is essentially a pipe dream.

At the same time, many ISKCON devotee parents told their children the same thing, we cannot worship the "posthumous acharya Srila Prabhupada" -- instead -- even their own children needed to "find a living guru" and worship him instead of Srila Prabhupada. And that explains why hardly any of the ISKCON children ended up accepting Srila Prabhupada as their guru, and they mostly ran off to the Gaudiya Matha, Narayan Maharaja, and a number were initiated by GBC's gurus like Radhanath etc. Worse! A number these ex-children ended up being highly unfavorable toward the religion, and they blamed the religion for being the cause of more problems for them than solutions.

One ex-kuli student said, our own ISKCON parents have had us playing "Russian roulette" with their own children's guru worship program. Yes, we might find a somewhat good guru, but we might also find one who is a total dud and a sexual predator and so on. Thus our own parents have been having their own children gamble their spiritual lives on total speculation. 

Of course, what kind of religion has a "Russian roulette" guru system is another question? Here is your messiah, but maybe not. He really might be taking you to hell instead of heaven, but so what -- its guru by Russian roulette! And Srila Prabhupada confirms that this is what happens, false gurus go to the most obnoxious regions -- and so do their followers. Why would we send our own society's kids potentially on that perilous path?

Getting back to Jesus here, suppose the Christian parents all over the planet told all of their children, "You kids cannot accept Jesus as your guru, you have to find another guru." Then, within a generation, the entire church would fold up and disintegrate (as ISKCON is doing). Of course, probably a lot of people did not "think out" that the reaction would be that dire. They probably thought, this will all somehow work itself out and ISKCON will continue nicely. 

They did not think through -- what would happen if most of the children rejected the official ISKCON and departed from the institution -- due to having no official connection to the founder of the religion. And thus most of the children would wander off the reservation seeking "other gurus" especially since the bogus GBC's gurus sabha was so faulty, so they went en masse to other maths, or various other institutions and spiritual movements, or they just quit participating (as happened in many / most cases).

Then again, its very odd that while many of our critics say the Christians are a pile of bogus ritviks, they move to live in a town full of the alleged bogus Christian ritviks? Meanwhile, its the "bogus Christian ritviks" and their police, FBI, media and courts who -- saved my life -- from the hands of this hypocritical proces. Credit has to be given where credit is due. 

And these critics cannot do that fully because they are still thinking that Krishna does not live also in the hearts of the Christians. And thus Krishna can speak to them to send help to us if He so desires, ... the self same help Krishna has given me from their hands, and Krishna is still doing through their hands. 

To say all these Christian people are bogus ritviks, when they are the exact same people Krishna has sent to help us, is kicking at Krishna, and kicking at Jesus, and so on, not just kicking at me. They simply don't want to give credit to Jesus, after Srila Prabhupada said Jesus and me are brothers. In other words, its a much bigger problem than just kicking at me, they are also kicking at Krishna's arrangements made by His agents and representatives. 

And Krishna has also sent another helper, namely Henry, to help educate people on the situation as well. And how did you guess, people are attacking me for accepting that help too, but what if this help is all ultimately coming from -- Krishna? Then what? It seems all these people are begrudging what Krishna is doing, or what? 

The GBC ilk evidently holds a grudge against Jesus and his followers, and the Christian siddhanta that we have to worship the acharya. They should rather glorify the "bogus ritvik followers of Jesus" as the factual saviors of folks like me and many other devotees likewise. To say that I am a bogus Christian means, they are all holding a grudge against Jesus for saving me with his society.

Did I forget to mention that maybe Krishna has made this bogus Christian ritvik society in advance, to save us from the hands of these folks? Because without the bogus Christian ritvik society, we would be dead, and that is the real reason they begrudge it? Sorry, to say that "worship of the acharya is the bogus Christian idea" is what Tamal and their whole program said the whole time. 

We should not become their parrots, rather we should appreciate what worship of the acharya Jesus has done to help make folks like me survive, and give credit where credit is due and not begrudge it. In sum worship of the acharya is not a bogus idea, rather its the idea that has given me my best helpers with their police, FBI, media, courts and sustenance. The critics begrudge that, because they did not want me to be helped, then the bad guys win by default, its simple.

Anyway, to become a parrot of Tamal and say worship of the acharya is the bogus ritvik deviation, means one is shutting the door for others to accept the acharya. Anyone who does that will have to answer for doing that with the higher authority. And the result of this "preaching" was self evident in 1988 when Lokanath swami said, ISKCON is a ghost town. ys pd

Criminal Charges Will be Filed On ISKCON Leaders Over Rice Scandal

[PADA: OK lets hope these guys are innocent of these rice charges. Maybe they are being framed as some suggest. However, after all the scams and scandals we found going on with GBC folks over here, lets say -- hope is dim that there are not scams going on in Bharat. ys pd]  

Pusta Krishna Das Departs / Soquel Gaudiya Matha

[PADA: Our God brother Pusta Krishna das has departed. We wish him well on his future travels. Honest! 


A devotee requested me to write a brief explanation of the Soquel Gaudiya Matha temple that Pusta Krishna attended and promoted. And of course we are always hopeful that people on their last "death rattle end of life" will finally speak the truth; that deviants are not, were not, could not have been -- Krishna's acharyas. And we have been wrong to help the Gaudiya Matha sponsors of these apa-siddhanta ideas -- that acharyas are often debauchees, but that seems to almost never happen.  

The Soquel temple was originally a property owned by Gopal Vrnda pal and Mula Prakrti dasi, and they made some arrangement for the Sridhara Maharaja Gaudiya Matha's folks to acquire it. And later on, Mula Prakriti became a big leader of the Narayan Maharaja program. Of course NM was a huge hand maiden / cheer leader / supporter of Tamal and the GBC's illicit sex with men, women and children acharya's process. And that is why we had to break away from these folks. We simply do not accept that God's messiahs / gurus / acharyas / parampara successors etc. are often illicit sex predators, drunkards, molesters of minors, deviants and criminals etc. 

That was never taught by Srila Prabhupada. 

Originally Sudheer Krishna was Sridhara Maharaja's appointed guru and head of the Bay Area mission, but he allegedly fell down into some sort of scandal and was replaced with various people until they later made Janardan Maharaja the leader. Janardan Maharaja is another ex-ISKCON and is now the appointed successor of Govinda Maharaja “His Divine Grace Om Vishnupad Srila Bhakti Pavan Janardan Maharaj." 

Yep, Sudheer was the appointed sum total of the demigods messiah of the Jagat, who apparently could not follow even the basic principles of a neophyte sadhaka. so now they "appointed" another sum total of the demigods acharya to be the successor -- to the guy who could not follow, hee hee!

[... Srila Janardan Maharaj continued to travel and preach on behalf of Srila Govinda Maharaj and his relationship with him developed more and more and became deeper and deeper as the years went by. Srila Janardan Maharaj would visit India regularly and personally collected donations on behalf of the central Math. He would also participate in the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math Nabadwip Dham Parikrama in a glorious way bringing so much inspiration to the devotees and much joy to Srila Govinda Maharaj’s heart.

Finally, before leaving this world, Srila Govinda Maharaj declared in his Last Will and Testament “And in America Sripad Janardan Maharaj is a perfect personality. He is a perfect gentlemen. He will be Acharya. He is Acharya already but has given all the respect to me; I am giving in return to him. Sripad Janardan Maharaj will become the Acharya and Sevaite of the Soquel Math.” So, under Srila Govinda Maharaj’s instruction, Srila Janardan Maharaj has continued to care for and serve his divine mission.”]

Anyone who is familiar with PADA knows that we disagree with Sridhara Maharaja's teachings -- that acharya are often deviants who are "going mad after money, women and followers." That would make my trash collecting man more advanced than Sridhara Maharaja's acharyas, because our trash man is a pious person who goes to church and he has no interest in "going mad after money, women and followers." 

In others words, Sridhara Maharaja is not advanced enough to promote my trash man as his sum total of the demigods messiah guru. We also disagree with giving acharya titles to neophytes, and claiming that neophytes can be diksha gurus who will absorb sins like Jesus etc. In any case, we think that Pusta Krishna and others ran off to the supporters of the GBC's gurus because they never clearly understood the principles of what are the factual qualifications of an acharya. The acharya -- goes mad after money, women and followers? All because these people have not ever understood what is an acharya, its that simple.

So I cannot say what is the future destination of the people who adhere to these ideas -- that God's guru successors are often mad fools and debauchees, but I would be surprised if any of them attain the status of going back to Krishna, after insulting Krishna's acharyas as often being mad fools and debauchees. 

When I said Jayatirtha is not an acharya -- because of his illicit sex and drugs problem, Sridhara Maharaja said we "dissenters" should remain silent because "none should protest." Did If forget to mention that Jayatirtha's head was chopped off later on because of keeping him in the acharya's post under the emphatic pressure of people like Sridhara Maharaja?

Amazing! Even after their illicit sex and drugs acharya's head is chopped off, they still think this is the way forward. Heh heh heh.]  

ys pd]

Sridhara Maharaja opened the flood gates for all sorts of fools to become acharya.

Bihar Makes Children Liable to Care for Elder Parents

Michael Jackson "Leaving Neverland" (HBO Movie)

PADA: An ex-kuli (student) sent me this link and said this is apparently what happened to them under the GBC's regime, people in a position of power mis-used their posts of authority to exploit the children. He is also very unhappy the same folks who were "in charge" of the exploiting process are -- still in charge. 

He complains the "changes of management in ISKCON" are simply -- moving the same deck chairs around the deck of the Titanic. Anyway, viewer discretion is advised! I also have not been able to print a few comments from some folks who viewed this movie and wanted me to post their reaction, we have to keep this forum free of bad language, although we sympathize with those who want to use it. ys pd]

The Many Faces of Impersonalism BY: MAYESA DASA (ACBSP) INDIA

The Many Faces of Impersonalism


IMPERSONALISM is the cancer of humanity. It appears everywhere.

Impersonalism is behind the killing of the unborn. Impersonalism is behind the call for Socialism and Communism. In Vaisnava spiritual circles, impersonalism appears in many guises. Lets analyze a few.

1) Misinterpretation of words

The word rtvik is not a new word. It is found in Visnusmrti, Manusmrti, Puranas. It therefore has a definition. We are not at liberty to invent a new definition for the word anymore than those throughout the ages had liberty to do so. Rtviks were all devotees initiated into the parampara. How in the world could we have the effrontery to define Rtvik as a new form of initiation outside the parampara?

[PADA: Yes, this is good. A layman, a neophyte, a priest or even a madhyama person who "preaches on behalf of the parampara" might be called: a preacher, a brahmana, or a priest (aka ritvik). To say that "we cannot find any examples of layman preachers / brahmanas / priests etc. -- who have been acting as preaching representatives of the parampara -- in shastra" is simply foolishness. 

There are literally millions of neophyte people who are devotees of Krishna that are acting as layman preaching representatives of the acharya, and some of them are acting as brahmana priests, and we can easily find examples of these type folks all over the place, even today in India. To say there is no such thing as neophytes acting as agents of the parampara is simply put, impersonalism.]  

2) Guru is God

We sing in ISKCON temples worldwide Srila Visvanatha Thakur's words that guru is able to give mercy of Bhagavan to his disciple. This can be misunderstood. We see how it is especially misunderstood when disciples think that the guru has the power to change the very process of the parampara itself. This is identifying the guru as God.

[PADA: Yes, God says we have to worship His pure devotee exclusively. There is no instruction from God anywhere to worship the GBC's illicit sex acharya's process. Therefore, the foolish are taking the post of God's manager by changing the system created by God. 

Worse, they say acharyas are (A) getting dictation from God and (B) acharyas are simultaneously conditioned souls who need: reform, censure, suspending for deviations, monitoring, and even excommunication. Sorry! These rules apply ONLY to conditioned neophytes, the neophytes need reform and censure etc., not the acharyas. God has never said that His acharyas need "managing" by a "guru services committee" a "shastra advisory committee" and so on. 

To sum, saying that the acharya is taking instruction from God, and also from the GBC managers, means the GBC is taking the post of having the SAME authority as God. Or worse, the GBC needs to over-ride what God dictates to the acharya, and "rectify" the wayward acharyas. Of course if the acharya is as good as God, and a deviant, then what?  

They are thus falsely claiming to be not only as good as God, but better than God, they are in fact God's parampara's censuring managers. This is how foolish the GBC / Rocana ilk have become, they think they are the "superior managers" of the parampara, not Krishna. In fact they think they are superior to God because they have to take over the "management of the parampara," which is in fact managed by God.]  

At first blush, awarding such authority to the guru seems loving and surrendered. In reality it is banal. Guru takes his authority from parampara. How is it he can deconstruct his own authority?

[PADA: Correct, we cannot change the system that neophytes have to worship only the pure devotee and no one else.]

3) Sastra's source

Sastra is spiritual sound vibration enunciated by the Supreme Lord, who is outside the material nature. Impersonalists think sastra is a material representation of the formless Absolute.

4) The push to create woman guru

There is no more obvious an intrusion by impersonalism into Vaisnava circles than the push to install a class of woman guru. Our philosophy--all Vedic philosophy--begins with realization of one's Self separate from one's material body.

But there is a difference between the fact that each of us is an eternal soul and the realization of this fact. An insect is equal to a man as a spiritual fact. But their consciousness is not equal. Man and woman are not equals because it is the subtle body that carries the soul. It is not just the body that differs.

[PADA: There you have it, the false men gurus are the same people trying to make more false gurus, but in woman's bodies.]

5) Fall down

After His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta departed this earth there erupted the argument of whether souls fall down from Vaikuntha. One prominent disciple I will not name contended that ISKCON had misunderstood the acharya.

He argued that my guru was engaged in subterfuge in order to make Krsna Consciousness more palatable to neophytes when he had taught that fall down is possible at any stage by misuse of free will. Often the argument is used that we come from a place called the tatastha. But Chaitanya Mahaprabhu defines tatastha as our eternal nature, not any place other than the soul himself.

That the Supreme Lord Krsna could relegate souls to millions of lifetimes of suffering for a decision they did not make--a crime they never committed--is to deny God's merciful, loving nature. How is Krsna then all-attractive? Does this not deny His personality to the ultimate degree?

[PADA: Agreed, the false gurus of ISKCON lead the society over to the Gaudiya Matha and Narayan Maharaja camp which preaches impersonal origins of the soul. Narayana Maharaja said that Sridhara Maharaja is correct to say we originated in the brahmajyoti. This is mayavada on steroids, and the false gurus lead people to that bogus apa-siddhanta.]

6) The Personalities of Godhead

It is certainly a difficult concept, but His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta has mentioned in Bhagavad-gita purport, Srimad Bhagavatam purport and his personal letters the Personalities of Godhead, plural.

For a neophyte it is difficult to conceive, but just as the jivatma has his separate individual personality from Krsna so too the Visnu-tattva is situated as individual personalities. In other words, Krsna is not pretending to be a separate personality, Balarama, but Balarama is an actual separate person.

An example is Balarama laughing when Krsna adjusted Govardhana Hill and there was a murmur of fear from the Vrajavasis. Krsna felt a little shame that Balarama had read His mind but Balarama had not guessed the cause of Krsna's movement -- the gopi's breasts.

7) Vedic Cosmology

In a morning walk HDG A.C. Bhaktivedanta mentioned Meru mountain. He said that it was composed of gold and that if men knew it existed they would be mad to go there. He did not say that it was composed of subtle energy. Yet this is the common statement we hear so much regarding so much of Vedic information -- that it is subtle.

These are only 7 ways in which the soul is diverted to IMPERSONALISM.

[PADA: And in ISKCON they say, you need to select a GBC guru, but they cannot name "which one is bona fide" because "the GBC does not guarantee the level of realization of any of its approved gurus." OK, you have to buy one of our used cars, but it might explode when you turn on the key, hee hee. This is not only impersonal, no car dealership can last for long if its selling cars that it cannot even guarantee can be driven off the dealer's lot without exploding in your face. 

It means we are knowingly selling bad products, which is why the temples are empty, which is also impersonal, the persons are being removed. A devotee just told me he remembers having 70 people at morning mangal arotike, and now there is lucky to be even 7 people, and the singing now sounds like a funeral dirge. That is the result of impersonalism, the persons are being eliminated. Mayesa is onto something here!

How Krishna Destroyed the Yadu Dynasty

Samba: Making pretend to be a pregnant woman,
which infuriated the sages.  

Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura, however, has revealed that although many demigods had taken birth in the Yadu dynasty to assist the Lord, some members of the Yadu dynasty were actually inimical towards Kṛṣṇa. Because of their mundane vision of the Lord, they considered themselves to be on the same level as Kṛṣṇa. 

Having taken their birth in the family of the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself, they had inconceivable strength, and thus they misunderstood Kṛṣṇa’s supreme position. Having forgotten that Kṛṣṇa is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, they would constitute a great burden, and consequently it was necessary for Kṛṣṇa to remove them from the earth. There is a popular saying that familiarity breeds contempt. 

To destroy the contemptuous members of His own dynasty, the Lord caused a quarrel among them. For this purpose, He arranged for Nārada and other sages to display anger against the Kārṣṇas, the members of His family. Although many Yadus who were devoted to Kṛṣṇa were apparently killed in this fratricidal war, Lord Kṛṣṇa actually returned them to their original positions as universal directors, or demigods. 

It is the Lord’s promise in Bhagavad-gītā that He will always protect those who are favorable to His service. 

SB 11.30.12 — Then, their intelligence covered by Providence, they liberally indulged in drinking the sweet maireya beverage, which can completely intoxicate the mind. 

SB 11.30.13 — The heroes of the Yadu dynasty became intoxicated from their extravagant drinking and began to feel arrogant. When they were thus bewildered by the personal potency of Lord Kṛṣṇa, a terrible quarrel arose among them.

SB 11.30.14 — Infuriated, they seized their bows and arrows, swords, bhallas, clubs, lances and spears and attacked one another on the shore of the ocean.

SB 11.30.15 — Riding on elephants and chariots with flags flying, and also on donkeys, camels, bulls, buffalos, mules and even human beings, the extremely enraged warriors came together and violently attacked one another with arrows, just as elephants in the forest attack one another with their tusks.

SB 11.30.16 — Their mutual enmity aroused, Pradyumna fought fiercely against Sāmba, Akrūra against Kuntibhoja, Aniruddha against Sātyaki, Subhadra against Saṅgrāmajit, Sumitra against Suratha, and the two Gadas against each other.

SB 11.30.17 — Others also, such as Niśaṭha, Ulmuka, Sahasrajit, Śatajit and Bhānu, confronted and killed one another, being blinded by intoxication and thus completely bewildered by Lord Mukunda Himself.

SB 11.30.18 — Completely abandoning their natural friendship, the members of the various Yadu clans — the Dāśārhas, Vṛṣṇis and Andhakas, the Bhojas, Sātvatas, Madhus and Arbudas, the Māthuras, Śūrasenas, Visarjanas, Kukuras and Kuntis — all slaughtered one another.

SB 11.30.19 — Thus bewildered, sons fought with fathers, brothers with brothers, nephews with paternal and maternal uncles, and grandsons with grandfathers. Friends fought with friends, and well-wishers with well-wishers. In this way intimate friends and relatives all killed one another.

SB 11.30.20 — When all their bows had been broken and their arrows and other missiles spent, they seized the tall stalks of cane with their bare hands.

SB 11.30.21 — As soon as they took these cane stalks in their fists, the stalks changed into iron rods as hard as thunderbolts. With these weapons the warriors began attacking one another again and again, and when Lord Kṛṣṇa tried to stop them they attacked Him as well.

SB 11.30.22 — In their confused state, O King, they also mistook Lord Balarāma for an enemy. Weapons in hand, they ran toward Him with the intention of killing Him.

SB 11.30.23 — O son of the Kurus, Kṛṣṇa and Balarāma then became very angry. Picking up cane stalks, They moved about within the battle and began to kill with these clubs.

SB 11.30.24 — The violent anger of these warriors, who were overcome by the brāhmaṇas’ curse and bewildered by Lord Kṛṣṇa’s illusory potency, now led them to their annihilation, just as a fire that starts in a bamboo grove destroys the entire forest.

SB 11.30.25 — When all the members of His own dynasty were thus destroyed, Lord Kṛṣṇa thought to Himself that at last the burden of the earth had been removed. 

More Problems in ISKCON Russia

The Korgashino temple (the Krishna temple in Moscow), led by Bhakti Ananta Krishna non-Goswami, and now due to the incident with his girlfriend, he was removed from his position and Purusottama Caitanya was put in his place, was gifted with 11 million rubles debt. Just think about it. The temple owes 11 million. And it turns out there is on all constantly under pressure to carry money to pay off these debts. Therefore change and trouble are constant..

They think that they are the smartest, typed loans and launched a huge "preaching", but because of their short-sightedness, they will get the consequences to the fullest. People will hate you because you have turned their lives into a nightmare, used them for your fame and personal gain. They will curse you until the end of their days, when the boiling point reaches a non-return position and they leave you, slamming the door loudly.

[PADA: Yep, G.B.C. = Great Bunches of Chaos. Hee hee! Well what do ya know folks, other people are waking up to all this fraud, that's all. They burnt out the West to ashes, bankrupted the society here, then regrouped in India and Russia. And then, how did you guess, started the same process of fraudulent mis-managing there, that's all. 

It's no wonder they demonize us and have us banned, because we asked for accountability, and they don't want that. Remember when they had the "save the France zone from bankruptcy" after Bhagwan blooped? Well they keep having the same process repeated, over and over. Then again there are various people who say we need to get PADA off the internet, because then they will have no accountability and barely no one reporting on that issue. It will be a free for all smash and grab process. ys pd]

PART FORTY-FOUR: The GBC Acting Like Shudras


"…Yamarāja is a GBC, but he made a little mistake. He was punished to become a śūdra. So those who are GBC's, they should be very, very careful to administer the business of ISKCON. Otherwise they will be punished. As the post is very great, similarly, the punishment is also very great."

Bhaktivedanta Book Trust Jun 18, 2019

[PADA: Correct. Various mundane police, media folks, scholars, and just sometimes the average USA "Joe six pack" guy walking down the street asks PADA, "It seems to us that these ISKCON leaders have no actual belief in God, or they would never act with so much disregard for others, or for God's rules and laws. Are we correct to assume, they appear to be atheists?" 

Right, no kidding! 

This is something that is self-evident to the mass of people who have read so many scandalous if not criminal complaints about the GBC's "gurus" in the news papers, or they saw bad media on TV, or in books etc. including their horrific treatment of the society's children. How could pious people act with such wanton disregard for others, and for the laws of the Supreme, unless they are rogues posing as saints? That is a question we get on a regular basis.] 

PART FORTY-FOUR: New Age "Spiritual Practices" and "Motivational Guru" Videos are Shudra Pastimes. The following class by Shrila Prabhupada discusses how the supposedly brahminical body of GBC members could become shudras. It is ironic that the demigod in charge of punishing sinners himself became punished by the curse of a sage he had wronged.

Has it already happened that the GBC has courted punishment? Well, just see the track record of past members of dozens of GBC who deviated because they were puffed and thought of themselves as being above the law. When GBC members and their clones are making motivational videos that have strictly shudra appeal—like "get out and vote" it is quite obvious that the GBC organization is slipping into shudra consciousness.

"The Journey Home" book is another stunning and shocking example of GBC's shudra consciousness. That is because The Journey Home publicizes shudra exploiters dressed as swamis. Its pages indiscriminately mix the photos of such vile shudras with those of the revered acharyas of the Gaudiya sampradaya, including Shrila Prabhupada himself. 

So this is their shudra mentality and the proof that the GBC has become shudra. Shudras are generally known as very dull and crass individuals who listen only when they are threatened. And that is the basis of Shrila Prabhupada's class that is presented in his article. The words of His Divine Grace are like the danda of Yamaraja over the GBC body—and if they know what is good for them they will listen to the voice of reason.

[PADA: The GBC -- as an overall group -- have an apparent secret hidden rule, we really don't listen to reason. Their group has ALREADY experienced: various police raids; huge public mass media scandals; huge court cases; bankrupting the society; alienating the seniors and the second generation -- creating empty ghost town temples; and so many other inauspicious omens. Yet they still plod onwards claiming they are some sort of divine gurus, acharyas, parampara members, and Krishna's living spokesmen on earth etc. That means they cannot be reasoned with and simply need to be exposed.] 

Here is another example of the shudra mentality that is coming down from the GBC and permeating ISKCON like a poisonous gas. A very elder disciple of Shrila Prabhupada, Kisori dasi who used to cook for His Divine Grace, has been banned from the New Mayapura Hare Krishna temple in France for speaking about the tragic suicide of a woman devotee there. While 76-year old Mother Kisori dasi is no longer allowed at the temple, despite her volumes and volumes of past service to Shrila Prabhupada, the temple authorized a typically New Age (read: shudra) healing session to counteract the effects of this poor lady devotee's violent suicide.

[PADA: So many devotees have died already from drugs, alcohol poisoning, suicides, and of course the cancer epidemic. The reactions the GBC will get for creating this mayhem and suffering cannot be counteracted by some new age healing sessions. Of course many of these GBC are themselves suffering from taking the sins of others without authority. As one devotee said, "Everyone suffers in their scheme, even themselves."]  

During this assembly the devotees sat in a circle and gazed into each other's eyes while holding hands. Listen to the memories of Shrimati Mother Kisori dasi and consider whether this is the sort of person the GBC should be banning from the Hare Krishna Movement.

Kisori dasi: banned from ISKCON New Mayapura. When brahminical truth is banned,  

shudra ideas in the form of New Age rush in.

Such is the blatant evidence of ISKCON turning to shudra practices while chasing away the brahminical bearers of the Supreme Absolute Truth. Learn about the tragic saga of Shrimati Kishori's in her struggle to serve the lotus feet of her spiritual master Shrila Prabhupada. And see what ISKCON's so-called "leaders," who have sold out to shudra practices, have responded with ... Just listen to the plight of this worshipable elder, and decide for yourselves, Prabhus, who is the shudra and who is the brahmana. Now here is the lecture we promised you:

"GBCs Will Be Punished to become Shudras"

Lecture Delivered by Shrila Prabhupada, June 4, 1974, Geneva)

Nitāi: "As long as Vidura played the part of a śūdra, being cursed by Maṇḍūka Muni, Aryamā officiated at the post of Yamarāja to punish those who committed sinful acts."

Srila Prabhupāda: abibhrad aryamā daṇḍaṁ yathāvad agha-kāriṣu / yāvad dadhāra śūdratvaṁ śāpād varṣa-śataṁ yamaḥ / (SB 1.13.15)

So Vidura is Yamarāja, the superintendent of death. After our death, we are brought before the justice Yamarāja, what kind of next birth I may have. So Yamarāja is not śūdra. He is devotee of Lord Kṛṣṇa, although he has the duty to punish the criminals. Just like a magistrate is always punishing the criminals. That is his business, but he is not criminal. He is giving judgment to the criminals. Similarly, Yamarāja is the appointed magistrate, superintendent. After death, one has to go before him and take the judgment of his next life. This is the process.

So Vidura was cursed by Maṇḍūka Muni, Maṇḍūka Muni. He was a great sage, but sometimes in his āśrama, some thieves were caught, so police arrested both Maṇḍūka Muni and the thieves, and later on Maṇḍūka Muni was chastised to be punished by śūla. There was a system of punishment. I do not whether (it is) still existing. The śūla means one lance, lancer. Lancer, it is called?

Devotee: Yes.

Shula punishment of Manduka Muni
Prabhupāda: It was to be pierced through the rectum and it will go through the head and the man will die. The pierce was standing, and he was to sit down. What is this punishment? Is there any mention?

Puṣṭa-kṛṣṇa: I never heard of anything.

Guru-gaurāṅga: Arabians have this. It is called pala(?).

Prabhupāda: Śūla punishment. So when he was condemned to the śūla punishment, then the king heard that "Maṇḍūka Muni, the great sage, he is punished like that?" Immediately he stopped. "What is this nonsense that Maṇḍūka Muni has been punished? He is a great sage." So the king stopped the punishment and immediately came to see what has happened. Then he was immediately released. But he was very sorry, that "Why the judge Yamarāja punished him like that?" So he asked Yamarāja, "Why you have punished me like this?" "Now, in your childhood you pierced the rectum of an ant with a...," what is called?

Devotees: Pin, straw.

Prabhupāda: No, not straw. Prick, pricking?

Devotee: Pin.

Prabhupāda: Kāṇṭā, kāṇṭā. We say kāṇṭā, that pricks. What is called?

Devotees: Thorn.

Prabhupāda: Ah, thorn, yes. So therefore he was punished. Now just see. In his childhood he was playing with an ant, piercing the rectum with a thorn. That is also taken account, "All right. You will be punished." Just see how finer laws are there in nature. So the Maṇḍūka Muni did that. Therefore it was recorded he should be punished like that.

This is our position. Anything... If you are walking on the street, if you kill an ant by walking, you will be punished. This is nature's law. We are in such a dangerous position. In every movement there is punishment. Now, if you believe the śāstras, that is different thing. 

If you don't believe, then do anything you like. But from śāstra we can understand the laws of nature, or God, is very, very strict, very, very strict. So Maṇḍūka Muni also chastised Yamarāja, that "In my childhood, without any knowledge I did something and for which you have given me so great punishment. So you are not fit for becoming a brāhmaṇa or kṣatriya. You become śūdra." So he was cursed to become śūdra. Therefore Yamarāja took his birth as Vidura and was born in the womb of a śūdra mother.

This is the history of Vidura's birth.

So in his absence, Aryamā, one of the demigods, he officiated Yamarāja. Therefore it is said, abibhrad aryamā daṇḍam. The office must go on, the magistrate post cannot be vacant. Somebody must come and act. So Aryamā was acting. Yathāvad agha-kāriṣu. Agha-kāriṣu. Agha-kāri means... Agha means sinful activities, and kāriṣu. 

Kāriṣu means those who commit sinful acts. And yathāvat. Yathāvat means exactly to the point, how he should be punished. Yathāvad agha-kāriṣu. Yāvad dadhāra śūdratvam. So long Yamarāja continued as a śūdra, Aryamā was officiating in his place as Yamarāja.

This is the purport. (reads purport:) "Vidura, born in the womb of a śūdra mother, was forbidden even to be a party of royal heritage along with his brothers Dhṛtarāṣṭra and Pāṇḍu. Then how could he occupy the post of a preacher to instruct such learned...? 

Answer is that even though it is accepted that he was a śūdra by birth, because he renounced the world for spiritual enlightenment by the authority of Ṛṣi Maitreya and was thoroughly educated by him in transcendental knowledge, he was quite competent to occupy the post of an ācārya or spiritual preceptor." Vidura was a śūdra, born śūdra. Then how he became a preacher?

So the reason is... "According to Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, anyone who is conversant in the transcendental knowledge or the science of Godhead, be he a brāhmaṇa or śūdra, a householder or a sannyāsī, is eligible to become a spiritual master." Not that because he was born a śūdra, he cannot preach, he cannot take the post of ācārya or spiritual master. That is not Caitanya philosophy. Caitanya philosophy has nothing to do with this body, external body. Caitanya philosophy is concerned with the soul. This movement is the movement of elevating the soul, saving the soul from degradation. Therefore people sometimes are surprised. The bodily concept of life, the same activities will be karma. And on the platform of spiritual life, the same karma will be bhakti. Same karma will be bhakti. So bhakti is not inactivity. Bhakti is all active. Yat karoṣi yaj juhoṣi yad aśnāsi yat tapasyasi kuruṣva tad mad-arpaṇam (Bg. 9.27. This is bhakti, bhakti-yoga. Kṛṣṇa says to everyone, "If you cannot give up your karma, then that's all right. But the result of your karma, give to Me. Then it will be bhakti."

"As the post is very great, similarly, the punishment is also very great"

So Vidura was Yamarāja. Not only he was Yamarāja, ordinary, but he is one of the great authorities. There are twelve authorities mentioned in the śāstra. One of them is Yamarāja. Balir vaiyāsakir vayam. This is stated in the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. Yamarāja is one of the GBC of Kṛṣṇa. Yes. As we have got twelve GBC's, similarly Kṛṣṇa has got GBC's. Now,

svayambhūr nāradaḥ śambhuḥ kumāraḥ kapilo manuḥ
prahlādo janako bhīṣmo balir vaiyāsakir vayam (SB 6.3.20)

That twelve men are authorized to preach Kṛṣṇa consciousness. So we have to follow. Mahājano yena gataḥ sa panthāḥ (Cc. Madhya 17.186. Therefore we have created these GBC. So they should be very responsible men. Otherwise, they will be punished. They will be punished to become a śūdra. Although Yamarāja is a GBC, but he made a little mistake. He was punished to become a śūdra. So those who are GBC's, they should be very, very careful to administer the business of ISKCON. 

Otherwise they will be punished. 

As the post is very great, similarly, the punishment is also very great. That is the difficulty. You can see from this example, Vidura. He was immediately punished. He did little mistake at Maṇḍūka... Because the ṛṣis, the munis, they will curse. Dealing is very... Even Yamarāja is not taking.

(reads:) "He was to play the part of so-called śūdra for years, being cursed by Maṇḍūka Muni. He was the incarnation of Yamarāja, one of the twelve mahājanas, on the level with such exalted personalities as Bhīṣma, Nārada, Brahmā, Nārada, Śiva, Kapila, Bhīṣma, Prahlāda, etc. Being a mahājana, it is the duty of Yamarāja to preach the cult of devotion to the people of the world as Nārada, Brahmā and other mahājanas do. But Yamarāja is always busy in his plutonic kingdom, punishing the doers of sinful acts. 

Yamarāja is deputed by the Lord to a particular planet some hundreds of thousands of miles away from this planet." That is mentioned. He has got a different planet, where the criminals are taken away after death, and he gives the judgment, what kind of body he will have. And not like the theosophists' thinking, "Now I have got human body. It is permanent settlement." No, that is not permanent settlement. According to one's work... Work means all sinful acts. 

Without Kṛṣṇa consciousness, anyone who acts, he acts sinfully. There is no doubt of it. Because he is acting for sense gratification, and sense gratification means almost 99.9% all sinful activities. Duṣkṛtinaḥ. It is very risky job. Unless you act in Kṛṣṇa consciousness... Yajñārthe karmaṇo 'nyatra loko 'yaṁ karma-bandhanaḥ (Bg. 3.9. This is the stringent law of the nature, that you have to act only for Yajña, for satisfaction of Kṛṣṇa or Viṣṇu. Otherwise, you will be entangled. And who is serving Kṛṣṇa? Nobody is serving Kṛṣṇa. So everyone is being entangled. This is the material world.

(reads:) "Yamarāja is deputed by the Lord to a particular planet, some hundreds of thousands of miles away from the planet of earth, to take away the corrupt souls after death and convict them in accordance with their respective sinful activities. Thus, Yamarāja has very little time to take leave from his responsible office of punishing the wrongdoers. There are more wrongdoers than righteous men. Therefore Yamarāja has to do (more) work than other demigods who are also authorized agents of the Supreme Lord. But he wanted to preach the glories of the Lord, and therefore, by the will of the Lord, he was cursed by Maṇḍūka Muni to come into the world in the incarnation of Vidura and work very hard as a great devotee."

The punishment was also reward. Those who are servants of Kṛṣṇa, even they are so-called punished, there is some motive behind this. Just like Jaya and Vijaya. They were also punished to come down and..., just to become enemy of Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa, when they were very much perturbed that "We are going to the material world from Vaikuṇṭha. So what will be our fate, Sir? There is some little mistake on our part. What we shall do?" So Kṛṣṇa gave him that "If you become My enemy, then you will be relieved in three births, and if you become My friend, then seven births." 

So Jaya and Vijaya agreed, "Sir, we shall become Your enemy." So what is the purport? Kṛṣṇa wanted some enemy to fight. Just like we sometimes want to fight. So this desire is there, Kṛṣṇa. Otherwise, where we get this desire? So actually, it was Kṛṣṇa's service, this Jaya and Vijaya. Kṛṣṇa wanted to have some fight. In the spiritual world there cannot be fight. There is no fight. There is only service. Therefore some of His devotees, this Jaya and Vijaya, agreed to become His enemy, come to this material world and to..., Kṛṣṇa fought with the Jaya and Vijaya. As Rāmacandra, He fought with Rāvaṇa, and as Nṛsiṁhadeva, He fought with Hiraṇyakaśipu, and as Kṛṣṇa, He fought with Yamarā..., er, Kaṁsa.

So similarly, Vidura also, he thought that "I am always busy in this magisterial work, simply to punish. I have no chance to preach." So Kṛṣṇa is very kind to His devotee. So He gave the chance to preach. So this was the arrangement, that he was cursed by Maṇḍūka Muni, came down to this material world. That is also material. Yamarāja's planet is also in the material world. Therefore he was given the chance of preaching. (reads:) "He is transcendental to such divisions of mundane society, just as the Personality of Godhead assumes His incarnation as a hog, but He is not hog." If somebody thinks that He has come as a hog, playing the part of a hog, that is not the fact. 
Even though assumes the... 

(reads:) "The Lord and His different authorized devotees sometimes have to play the role of many lower creatures to claim the conditioned souls, but both the Lord and His pure devotees are always in the transcendental position." Etad īśanam īśasya. That is the authority of God, that even though He accepts some lower position, He is never in the lower position. He is always in the transcendental position. I have given the example yesterday. Just like the sun is sometimes evaporating the urine. This is not very good business. But still, sun is sun. He is never polluted. Similarly, Kṛṣṇa or His devotee, if sometimes apparently does something which is not befitting their position, still, they are in their position. This is the conclusion. Kṛṣṇa has given this concession to His devotee.

It is stated in the Bhagavad-gītā (Bg. 9.30)

api cet su-durācāro bhajate mām ananya-bhāk
sādhur eva sa mantavyaḥsamyag vyavasito hi saḥ

Even sometimes, not by willing, sometimes accidentally, a devotee... Just like the other day in the meeting, somebody was giving the example, "Lord Christ, he ate fish." So he can do that. There was some necessity. But you cannot do that. So even though it is sometimes done, abominable, but still they are in exalted position. This is to be understood. Tejīyasāṁ na doṣāya (SB 10.33.29. Tejīyasām, those who are very, very powerful, anything abominable done by them, it does not contaminate. This is to be understood. But you cannot do that. You cannot imitate.

(reads:) "When Yamarāja thus incarnated himself as Vidura, his post was officiated by Aryamā, one of the many sons of Kaśyapa and Aditi, the Ādityas, or sons of Aditi, and there are twelve Ādityas. Aryamā is one of the twelve Ādityas, and therefore it was quite possible for him to take charge of the office of Yamarāja during his one hundred years' absence in the form of Vidura. The conclusion is that Vidura was never a śūdra, but was greater than the purest type of brāhmaṇa."

Now, have kīrtana. (end)

[PADA: Yes, no question about it, the GBC's policies of orchestrated banning, beating, molesting, lawsuits and assassinations are extremely sinful and they will have to answer to Yamaraja for all these crimes. Of course the shudras worship someone who is pure as their messiah, they do not worship illicit sex deviants nor promote that agenda. In sum, the GBC are less than shudras. ys pd]
