The human body, which can award all benefit in life, is automatically obtained by the laws of nature, although it is a very rare achievement. This human body can be compared to a perfectly constructed boat having the spiritual master as the captain and the instructions of the Personality of Godhead as favorable winds impelling it on its course. Considering all these advantages, a human being who does not utilize his human life to cross the ocean of material existence must be considered the killer of his own soul. (SB 11.20.17)
I had interesting email conversation in last few says.
White sugar is an intoxicating substance
In the four regulatory principles of Prabhupada, there is “not to take intoxicants”: alcohol, coffee, tea, drugs, smoking. He did not know that white sugar is whitened with lime without the knowledge of consumers, because there is no written in the ingredients. So for this reason ISKCON is used in temples, but it is time for it to be counted among the intoxicants and be replaced with other untreated sweeteners or fructose which is very cheap.
Prabhupada came to the west with a mission, he wanted to save at least one person, to make at least one pure devotee, but he made a few.
This website is continuing Prabhupada’s legacy by saving spiritual lives and helping people to select genuine guru. And we saved many lives, but it is especially sweet when we get written confirmation. This is a comment on my youtube channel from today:
What is one of the worst offences you can do toward Prabhupada and his legacy? It is to show your butt to Deities and practice fake gymnastic yoga in front of them. That means you defy Krishna and you defy anything Prabhupada stood for. So, devotee who accuse me and my website of “being offensive” always remain silent about this kind of gross deviations.
Here is a video of recent happening in ISKCON temple Utah, where “devotees” and karmis show their butt to Krishna together as a form of cooperation.
ISKCON is firmly dedicated to ignoring sannyasi girlfriends and sannyasis with expensive apartments.
Sannyas life is full of inconveniences. You have to travel a lot, facilities where you might stay might sometimes be in your comfort zone, sometimes not.
However, sannyas life was never about comfort, it was always about making sacrifices for the preaching mission.
But, for Bhakti Caitanya Swami, he wants to achieve comfort, and he is ready pay big cash for comfortable living.
And his disciples are ready to finance comfortable sannyas asrama instead of financing preaching projects.
Today, we are sharing a video and a few letters with photos, which describe comfortable living arrangement of Bhakti Caitanya Swami and the amounts of money needed to accomplish that.
Well, both ISKCON and China communist party, are very happy to ban books. ISKCON banned Bhakti Vikasa Swami’s book without even speaking with him, and China banned … well, look for yourself:
Book banning makes you guilty as hell. China is not allowing people in Australia to publish books about them? Seriously? Similarly, writing a book which actually supports Prabhupada’s teachings is no longer welcome in ISKCON.
When somebody complains about your guru, your duty as disciple is to defend your guru. Therefore, if you accept nonsense guru, you will have to defend nonsense. But, it seems yoga baba Prahladananda doesn’t have any disciples, because nobody is trying to defend him. Well, actually, somebody is trying to defend him, sort of. Here is an email I received today, together with my reply.
This video is dedicated to A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, greatest yogi that ever lived, who saved us from Kali-yuga nonsense.
Human life is meant for being elevated to the highest platform of good character and controlling the senses, controlling the mind, remain very clean. Then you can make progress and your life can become successful. So because they are not accustomed already to follow this, therefore so many rascals and dangerous yogīs are advertising that “There is no need of control. You can join this yoga system and give me money. I shall give you mantra, and you become God.” Be careful of these dogs. (SB 6.1.55, Praris, Aug 11 1975)
What is love, let’s hear it from Radhanath baba first:
Every organism has some system of defending itself against a disease. That system is called immune system.
Similarly, every society has some kind of immune system against those who are trying to damage the society. For criminals, we have police and justice system, which of course has many flaws, but it somewhat works in normal countries.
For the government officials, there is also immune system, which is called journalists, social media and so on. If some government official makes a mistake, journalists will create public pressure and that official might even be forced to step down. If he doesn’t step down, the the whole ruling party might get implicated. More recent example is australian deputy prime minister, who was forced to resign because he had an affair with his female secretary. I am sure many ISKCON sannyasis can learn a lot from his example.
