Anuttama's BBTI Lawsuit

[PADA: If there are some people with legal knowledge who could further help with this, that would be appreciated. ys pd]

Today I presented a lawsuit against the leaders of ISKCON, named as natural persons. Here it the cover letter: June 16, 2019

P.O. Box 341445
Los Angeles, CA 90034, USA

Hare Krishna Prabhus and Maharajas,
Obeisances. Jaya Srila Prabhupada,

Enclosed is a Common Law complaint presented by New Nandagram Society for Krishna Consciousness to the leaders of ISKCON and the acting trustees of the BBT. After reviewing the 1997 lawsuit filed by the BBTI against Hansadutta Prabhu and estimating the costs in terms of money and time, we decided that the most appropriate way to achieve equity is through a Common Law Court. If you are not familiar with Common Law, it is a universally acceptable way to achieve equity. Even Srila Prabhupada refers to it:

Morning Walk

"Varnasrama College"

March 14, 1974, Vrndavana

Visnujana: They even have a court system now. They started it when I was there last time. They have so many members that sometimes someone may commit some offense or something. They even have a judicial type of system where he comes before a board of members, older members.

Prabhupada: Yes. All fights should be decided by the board. That's nice. And it will be accepted even by the court. Here, in India, there is such system. A board of five, ten men in the village, if there is some fight between two parties, whatever the board will decide that will be accepted in the court.

I hope you choose to respond to this lawsuit and answer it in a timely manner. Failure to respond will likely result in a default judgment against the defendants which will be enforced through the regular court system and local sheriffs. As Srila Prabhupada notes above, “...and it will be accepted even by the court.” Please note that individual natural persons are also named as defendants and the court may decide to award damages from the assets of the named natural persons. Common Law is accepted by all countries and can be enforced everywhere.

Because of the scope of this complaint, in fairness to the various defendants, New Nandagram Society for Krishna Consciousness will allow the defendants up to 30 days to respond with an answer. Again, failure to answer in a timely manner will likely result in a default judgment against the defendants.
Let us work together to resolve these issues to the satisfaction of Srila Prabhupada! Remember he said, “your love for me will be shown by how you cooperate together.”

Wishing you the best,

Anuttama dasi



Hare Krishna. The lawsuit to get back the books began sunday June 16. Common Law is accepted by every country and a judgement/verdict given by a Common Law Court may be enforced anywhere. The defendants cannot hide behind a corporate shield because they are being tried as natural persons and their personal assets are at stake.

Anyone reading this who is excited at the prospect of getting justice for the wrongs committed to Srila Prabhupada's movement can participate in helping this action become a resounding success. The individuals who have committed these crimes rely on disinformation and secrecy. Just spreading the information in the lawsuit will help the effort. We also need:
Public Relation strategists
Newspaper article writers/promoters
Video editors/vidoegraphers
Fund raisers
The trial will be held in Lewis County, Washington. The date is not determined yet but will be decided when the defendants answer the lawsuit and we begin discovery, a process in which we will be able to, for instance, examine the BBT book keeping efforts.

There are no lawyers to be paid in a Common Law action, but the needs to be an adjudicator with knowledge of law to ensure that the rules of evidence are stringent enough for the case to be enforced by the regular court system. There are some other costs involved such as prasadam for the 12 randomly selected jurors, a venue, a court reporter and possibly mediation costs. So, naturally donations are very appreciated.

You can read the entire lawsuit at:

All Glories to His Divine Grace AC Bhaktivedanta Svami Srila Prabhupada!
