Actual factHanuman das
Here is an interesting letter and my reply. I am not writing poetry every day, but today I was inspired
Hare Krishna Prabhu.
Please accept my humble obeisances.
Many a times I’ve seen on the internet about the issue of horrible dealing (poisoning) with Srila Prabhupada. So I wanted to ask you
1) is it true in anyway?
It is very hard to determine what really happened 50 years ago. If it is true or not, it is hard to say, both sides have arguments.
Philosophically speaking, the basic philosophy of Krishna consciousness is that Krishna protects His devotees. It is not possible to kill a devotee without Krishna permission. Prahlada maharaja could not be killed, as we learn from the Srimad Bhagavatam. Arjuna could not be killed during Kurushetra battle. And so on.
I am very much doubtful that Krishna would send his pure devotee to this material world and then allow for him to be killed.
But even if Krishna allowed it, it was probably done by Tamal Krishna Goswami, who was also killed in a car accident.
So, it is hard to say what really happened. And we don’t have a single witness who would support this story.
2) please guide me on this issue as guidance here is very much needed by me because this thing disturbs me a lot and I cannot possibly ask this to any devotees as all they will say to me is that it is very sinful so just forget about it. But that won’t solve the problem.
Even if Srila Prabhupada was killed by 2-3 crooked disciples, that doesn’t change anything. He was surely not killed by a big conspiracy of many people. I find that theory childish.
So, your job is to read all Srila Prabhupada’s books, and then use your intelligence to see which of Srila Prabhupada’s disciples are preaching exactly the same philosophy as Srila Prabhupada preached.
Avoid sannyasis with girlfriends like Sacinandana Swami and mayavadi gurus like Radhanath Swami. Also, avoid all gurus who are supporting and glorifying Radhanath Swami.
So please be merciful and guide me on this regarding what is the actual fact. Thank you. Hare Krishna.
The actual fact is that Srila Prabhupada’s books are awesome. They open a whole new world.
The actual fact is that following Srila Prabhupada will make your life sublime.
The actual fact is that many of his disciples are killing Srila Prabhupada even today by twisting his teachings and preaching mayavada philosophy.
The actual fact is that Srila Prabhupada allowed all his disciples to initiate, while GBC produced guru-list and reserved this job for selected few, and some of guru-list gurus are retarded.
The actual fact is that if you don’t appreciate Srila Prabhupada’s books, if you are lazy to read them, you will be cheated for sure.
The actual fact is that Srila Prabhupada’s legacy lives as long as his followers are fighting for it. When Srila Prabhupada’s followers stop fighting deviations, that means Srila Prabhupada died.
The actual fact is that real Krishna consciousness is like a diamond, not many people will receive it because they are not sincere.
The actual fact is that there is nothing else to do in this world except trying to become Krishna conscious. Everything else is very boring.
your servant, Hanuman das
