Danavir Attacks "ISKCON's Yoga Marketplace"

[PADA: Yes, here we go (again). The GBC's gurus are often attacking the actions of -- the other GBC's gurus. There is no history of Vaishnava acharyas complaining that the other acharyas are "Yoga Marketers" making a business of bogus Yoga classes. So this is setting the example that acharyas are often infighting and disagreeing on the basic principles and tenets of the Vaishnava religion. 

Of course Danavir is correct here, ISKCON is falling into a Hindu hodge podge / Yoga classes process. He is right, just like a broken clock is giving the right time twice a day, hee hee! Danavir is currently suffering from some sort of -- what appears to be -- a nervous disorder illness. His health is evidently not good. Ooops, we were told not to take karma or it would make us sick, and he is taking tons of it. Did I forget to mention, he is voted into the GBC's illicit sex / intoxicated / deviant's messiah's club? Why does he never say that acharyas are not ever deviants, and the GBC is bogus to have made this their founding principle? ys pd]

Danavir das:

"I am of the opinion that the recent upsurge in gymnastic and meditational yoga-related courses being offered within ISKCON, for the most part, compromises the mission of the organization. Here are some reasons:

1. Gymnastic and meditational types of yoga cannot be properly practiced in the age of Kali, thus, such courses are unauthorized.
2. Such courses misrepresent their teachings as yoga when in fact they are not so.
3.Such courses ignore Arjuna’s rejection of gymnastic and meditational yoga in Bhagavad-gita.
4. Such courses do not even teach the standard process of the eight-fold path of yoga (astanga) described in the Bhagavad-gita.
5. Such courses take undo advantage of the public’s misconceptions about yoga.
6. Such courses deceptively present their teachings as authentic aids to spiritual attainment.
7. Such courses and their teachers’ credentials stem from impersonalist lineage.
8. Such courses facilitate inappropriate intermingling of males and females.
9. Such courses emphasize the gross bodily conception by promising sense gratification and mundane success to practitioners.
10. Such courses beguile people away from the path of pure bhakti, even if unintentionally.
11. Such courses misuse the popularity and resources of ISKCON.
12. Such courses cannot be counted in the seven purposes of ISKCON.
13. Such courses tarnish ISKCON’s and its founder’s good name through cheap caricatures of spiritual life.
14. Srila Prabhupada purposefully never instituted such courses in ISKCON.
15. Srila Prabhupada forbade such courses in ISKCON.


We should not allow ISKCON to become a hodgepodge like so many other groups. In my opinion no such courses be taught, advertised, promoted, nor practiced on ISKCON properties. Hare Krishna."
