Astronaut guru tattva can unite us allHanuman das
We live in very dangerous times, as the guru wars are taking a toll on all of us.
This is a philosophical article meant to save the sampradaya.
Did you ever hear about “The Bureau”? This is a very secretive Indian organization. And they very dangerous. You can’t be dangerous unless you are very powerful. They draw their power from controlling ISKCON cash flow from Indian temples.
Well, they published a statement, and I am already shitting in my pants:
Vaishnavebhyo namonamah. Jaya Srila Prabhupada!
If you would be so kind, I would like to bring to your attention a resolution of the ISKCON India Governing Council (aka ”Bureau”) regarding the ISKCON GBC’s recent resolution passed at Tirupati during October 2019, authorizing female diksa-gurus (FDGs) on a geographic region-by-region basis.
The ISKCON India Governing Bureau is overwhelmingly opposed to this resolution, as are ISKCON India’s divisional leaders (the “IIAC” = ISKCON India Advisory Committee) and local temple authorities (the “ICC” = Indian Continental Committee).
We oppose the GBC’s resolution because it is opposed in heart and spirit to Srila Prabhupada’s teachings.
The Bureau therefore passed its own resolution calling for the GBC to reconsider its resolution regarding instituting FDGs. The Bureau voted 14 in favor, 1 abstention and 1 against for the resolution copied below.
Thank you for your kind attention and consideration of this important issue,
Basu Ghosh Das
ISKCON India Governing Bureau
P.S. For those reading this who may not be aware, Srila Prabhupada registered ISKCON in India at Bombay during 1971, under both the Bombay Public Trust Act, and the Society’s act of 1860 (laws enacted during British Imperial Rule in India, that are still on the books today).
Now, if you are an ISKCON sheep, you probably don’t understand this last post scriptum sentence. This sentence is a threat. The threat of secession, the Bureau is incorporated separately from ISKCON for the purpose of control of Indian temples. And they are using this leverage to steer femi-guru-mata issue in their own favor. They are reminding the the Alachua Gestapo GBC guys that they are not the only Gestapo which can push brainless obedience ideology. They are bringing the ultimate weapon to the table. The weapon of leaving ISKCON and taking ISKCON’s richest temples with them.
######## The Bureau’s Resolution regarding FDGs ##########
On the last day of the meeting of the ISKCON India Governing Council (Bureau) at Ahmedabad, November 25, 2019, the following resolution was adopted by the Bureau: a response to ISKCON’s GBC having passed a resolution at Tirupati last month, sanctioning female diksha gurus.
Whereas, the GBC has passed a resolution at their mid-term meeting at Tirupati 2019, authorizing female diksha gurus. However, the Bureau had passed a resolution during its February 2019 meeting at Pune, calling on the GBC not to pass any resolution on female diksha gurus, before entering into a dialogue with the Bureau, but regretfully the GBC did not do so, and the Bureau feels distressed and disheartened by the disregard shown by the GBC towards the Bureau,
Whereas, we all know that “books are the basis”, and in our foundational book, Srimad Bhagavatam, 4.12.32, Prabhupada clearly stated that “being a woman” Suniti could not be Dhruva’s diksha guru”. The Bureau finds that the said resolution instituting female diksha gurus is in our understanding a contravention of this specific instruction of Srila Prabhupada,
Whereas, the resolution passed by the GBC on female diksha gurus is having a divisive effect on the worldwide community of devotees,
Whereas, the members of the Bureau find the said resolution instituting female diksha gurus to contradict established vaishnava practices, traditions, and the culture of the Saraswat line of Gaudiyas, as set down in various vedic scriptures,
Whereas, the effort to institute female diksa-gurus in ISKCON contravenes Srila Prabhupada’s instruction to institute varnashrama-dharma as the social system for ISKCON,
Whereas, Srila Prabhupada did not confer the sacred thread to women, therefore we understand that they are thus unauthorized to confer it to others,
Whereas, Srila Prabhupada had so many sincere and senior female disicples, but still he never appointed a single woman as a TP, GBC, or ritvik (guru – as per the July 9 letter), thus establishing his intent that as per teaching of the shastra that woman should always be protected and not have authority over men,
Whereas, the Bureau is afraid that since the GBC has the tendency to appoint women as TPs and GBCs, and now female diksha gurus, it will open the doors to more Western liberal egalitarian ideas that men and women are absolutely equal, a view that Prabhupada condemned time and again,
Whereas, this resolution and consequent implementation will cause the leaders of the four Vaishnava sampradayas and bona fide followers of Sanatana Dharma to call into question the authenticity of ISKCON,
Whereas, the members of the Bureau feel that the GBC resolution authorizing female diksha gurus even on a regional basis will adversely affect ISKCON India. As devotees around the world treat ISKCON as one united institution and not compartmentally, with each area having it’s own systems of initiation. So anyone who is intiaiated by a female guru outside of India cannot be denied as a bona fide initiated devotee within India. We wish to point out that ISKCON India has the most temples, the largest group of both fully dedicated and congregational devotees, and the most book distribution in the world. Moreover, we wish to point out that the vast majority of ISKCON’s congregation in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, as well as to some extent in Western Europe, are Indians, and they naturally have a relationship with ISKCON in India,
Whereas, the Bureau takes cognizance of the vote in the ICC – Indian temple presidents and managers meeting – (vote was seventy six in favor, three opposed, with four abstentions), and in the IIAC – divisional council representatives and Bureau members’ joint meeting – (twenty one in favor, three opposed, and six absentions) wherein both bodies voted overwhelmingly to reject this resolution of the GBC, and called upon us to convey their desire to the GBC for this resolution to be rescinded,
Whereas, this resolution that may have far reaching effects was passed by the GBC with only a simple majority, whereas to be confirmed as a GBC member a 4/5 majority is required,
Therefore, in view of the above, it is hereby resolved, that,
The Bureau hereby expresses its strong opposition to the GBC resolution on female diksha gurus, passed during their 2019 meeting, at Tirupati,
The Bureau calls on the GBC body to rescind the resolution on female diksha gurus during its 2020 AGM, and, as requested by the Bureau in February 2019, to enter into a dialogue on the issue with us, to come to a mutually agreeable solution on the basis of guru, sadhu, and shastra,
Further, the Bureau calls on the GBC body to reconstitute the Shastric Advisory Council (SAC), in consultation with the Bureau, as it appears that the conclusions of the SAC papers of 2005 and 2013 on the topic of female diksha gurus, which informed the GBC’s resolution, are incorrect.
Well, the “Bureau” would be even more powerful if they had their own website. Actually, they are so powerful that they don’t need their website. They are controlling everything through Indian temple presidents. Only losers like me have a website.
Now, These Indian bureau guys dare to disagree with the purest of the pure – GBC members. Are they not aware that they are ruining their spiritual lives by disagreeing with guru approvers? How can you disagree with the GBC body? Jesus, this is dangerous. I know one guy who disagreed with the purest of the pure. His name is Sulocana. And he ended up dead, killed by Kirtananananada “don’t disagree” Swami. And the cash for murder was carried by Radhanath Swami, who is still a member of the GBC body. These poor Indians think they resist Radhanath’s special ops guys. Everybody’s been telling me not to criticize Radhanath “the last smile you gonna see” Swami who killed Sulocana, and I agree. I want to say that Radhanath is great, I especially love his Facebook quotes.
So, the guru approval nonsense which was imagined by the Gestapo body commission now has two sides, we should only approve bonafide gurus, such as Kirtanananda gangster, We should also approve Bir Krishna, the mushroom eater, and of course, the Dancing girls circus Swami, also called Indradyumna “the personified chastity”. All these guys are completely bonafide. Not to mention the 70 fallen male gurus who were so humble that they left the process (usually with a girlfriend and a lot of money, aka Rameshvara, aka Harikesa Swami). But all these guys are not problems, they are opportunities, no, the problem that everybody wants to discuss are USA Gestapo feminist matas who have a spiritual desire to keep a few brahmacaris under their boot. But, according to the GBC, they can’t be pure until they are 50 years old, I guess women are slow learners. Actually, they can be pure, but only outside of India. 😂😂😂
So, what is the solution for the feminist guru mata problem? Instead of discussing genders which are all based on the material body, I want to present astronaut guru ideology, I think you can’t really be “approved” as a guru unless you left planet Earth at least for a while. This is proof that you can leave earthly pleasures. The only way you can lead disciples to the spiritual world is if you demonstrated your detachment from the planet Earth. So, at least one visit to the space station is required to demonstrate purity. Since GBC is probably sponsored by the Chinese communist party, I am sponsored by NASA. So, unless you watched planet Earth disappearing in the distance from a shuttle window, you can’t really say that you are detached.
The important thing to understand for ISKCON members is that you are not allowed to discuss this issue. Especially if you live in Europe. Don’t support either side in this conflict because as an ISKCON member you are not allowed to think. You are not allowed to pick sides. You are not allowed to use your brain. That is very offensive. Additionally, don’t write articles on this subject, you will just confuse other ISKCON sheep. Don’t discuss this issue with other devotees. Always remember the ISKCON Lawbook, you are not allowed to criticize anybody and expressing disagreement is definitely criticizing. By joining in ISKCON, you agreed to become a sheep without a brain, without an attitude, without intelligence, and without a spine. The only thing you need is faith, faith that spineless movement consisting of sheep without a brain will conquer the world. Remember, you are not Hanuman, don’t get carried away.
So, the “Rotten Indian bureau” and Gestapo GBC are both corrupt because they are not discussing the real issue. And the real issue is the cheating guru preapproval process. Nowhere in the history of Gaudiya Vaisnava sampradaya did we have a Gestapo guru preapproval process. Guru who must “preapproved”? And before becoming approved, a guru who must sign a statement promising never to criticize the GBC and other gurus? How can he preach Absolute truth if the administrative body decided what he can speak? How will he correct his disciples if he is not able to open openly and honestly speak about all the nonsense happening in ISKCON? That is the real issue.
Alachua guru matas and their spineless husbands want to introduce femi-guru-matas so that we would look “fair” to the outside world. They want more appeal for ISKCON by introducing “gender equality”. But, what about freedom of speech? Why they don’t start working on freedom of speech? Why they don’t give a promise of every guru and every ISKCON member that they can freely express their opinion without fear of retribution? Why they don’t start speaking about all the devotees who were kicked from ISKCON because they spoke the truth? Why nobody is afraid that running a Gestapo religion in 21st century will not work? And they are pinning their Gestapo ideology to Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Srila Prabhupada? Just go through a censorship topic on my website and you will understand the real problem.
And the foundation of GBC Gestapo ideology was established when they decided “preapprove” gurus. They established this Gestapo nonsense, instead of allowing every initiated disciple whose guru left to initiate. they directly disobeyed Srila Prabhupada, who said “without limitation”:
Every student is expected to become Acarya. Acarya means one who knows the scriptural injunctions and follows them practically in life, and teaches them to his disciples. …Keep trained up very rigidly and then you are bona fide Guru, and you can accept disciples on the same principle. But as a matter of etiquette it is the custom that during the lifetime of your Spiritual Master you bring the prospective disciples to him, and in his absence or disappearance you can accept disciples without any limitation. This is the law of disciplic succession. I want to see my disciples become bona fide Spiritual Master and spread Krishna consciousness very widely, that will make me and Krishna very happy. (Letter to Tusta Krsna, 2 Dec. 1975)
Instead of this, they established a lot of limitations, and every guru can be preapproved only after he has signed the form agreeing to lick GBC’s corporate boots and be an obedient puppy.
Such spineless puppy gurus are creating an army brainless Gestapo disciples who are persecuting anybody who is preaching the actual Krishna consciousness, rejecting sannyasis with female secretaries, rejecting sanyasis with luxury apartments, rejecting mushroom eating gurus, rejecting jeans acaryas, and rejecting all around Gestapo brainless mentality. Thus, corporate gurus and their Gestapo disciples are remaining forever inimical to real Krishna consciousness, to unpalatable truths, to speaking openly and honestly.
Instead, they want to keep their Gestapo preapproved puppy-guru ideology, but without women. Don’t fall for their trick, leave ISKCON Gestapo society, think freely, read Srila Prabhupada’s books freely, and keep your precious freedom to be able to preach what Srila Prabhupada preached.
