BREAKING NEWS: Krishna West introduces swearing to accommodate westerners

“ISKCON western mission is in great jeopardy. Unless we change, we will be extinct. We need a modern Hare Krishna movement. People think we are very strange, and therefore they are not joining us.” These are all arguments by Krishna West movement.

But, it’s still not working. Krishna West is not able to convert anybody, except fallen Prabhupada followers who are too lazy to wear dhoti.

Well, it seems they decided to take it a step further. You see, problem is that we as followers of Prabhupada, we don’t swear. We don’t use all those vulgar words that karmis use all the time. Therefore, when they speak with us, we sound to them like aliens.

One of the prominent members of Krishna West movement, Cyril Wohrer decided to change that. I will not use his initiated name so that I don’t scare you, because you might close this webpage if I utter any sanskrit words. So, bhakta Cyril decided to start swearing, so that he would sound normal to abnormal people.

Recently, on facebook, I received an interesting screenshot of an modern Krishna West conversation, it looks like this:

 

You see, when devotees start having conversations like this with karmis, then karmis will feel at home, and they will naturally join our movement. But when you preach a lot, and our bhakta Cyril is preaching a lot, then same language kinda slips while talking with devotees also. 😀

OK guys, let’s start swearing and bring some people to Krishna consciousness. All I can say is: “Krishna West is f***ing awesome.”

P.S. – In case you have any doubts about swearing, please write to Howard the Saint, he is new GBC for Brasil and he will be more than happy to explain swearing tattva.

    Did Prabhupada have anything to say about swearing? Swearing is prajalpa that much I know.

    • Hrvoje Marjanovic

      Swearing is worse than prajalpa, it shows that you are uncultured, and it is linked with vaisnava aparadha.

      • Tusta Ji Dass

        I know Cyril the squirrel as I have spent time with him in the past. He never swore then but he had a strange way of promoting KC. He dresses like a Cuban drug Lord in front of crowds of people at festivals and speaks French.

        • Hrvoje Marjanovic

          Well, that makes sense, if someone looking like Cuban drug Lord asks you to chant Hare Krishna, most people will not refuse. 😀 😀 😀

    Why don’t you post the full conversation? As far as we know, you were talking trash about Prabhupada and Cyril used vulgarity to shut you up. In cases of defending Vaishnavas, there are no holds barred. So you may have put Cyril in a corner unfairly.

    • Hrvoje Marjanovic

      I don’t have the full conversation, if bhakta Cyril sends it to me, I can publish it.

  • This is the second time I am posting a comment. My first comment was deleted (and I did not use bad language).
    The simple point is that if any fair reporting is to be done here, then Hanuman dasa had better show the entire context of the conversation. It was a private discussion, and it was a discussion that I initiated following what I considered to be highly offensive public remarks from this devotee. He further insulted me and senior vaishnavas that I honor during our brief private conversation, which I ended with the above words. Granted: I should not have used bad language. But Hanuman dasa, who habitually blasphemes senior devotees (Radhanatha Swami, Sacinandana Swami, Bhaktimarga Swami, Bhanu Swami, Prahladananda Swami, Indradyumna Swami, Anuttama prabhu, mother Urmila – the list is long), had better show some integrity by not (once again) showing a completely biased, one-sided picture of this incident. Besides, my using the “f” world is innocent child’s play compared to the tirades of insults coming out of Hanuman dasa’s mouth, week after week, month after month. I wonder what his guru, the late “Jolly Swami,” H.H Sridhara Swami, would say.

    • Makhana Cora

      I agree. Please show full conversation. It is not transparent to show select parts to defame someone.

      • Hrvoje Marjanovic

        I don’t have the full conversation, but Cyril has it. And if you ask my opinion, he will not publish it, because that will show that other devotee didn’t use f*** word.

        • Makhana Cora

          Oh please. Cursing is bad. But much worse is slander or defaming others without due cause. Since you are posting this publicly, it is your responsibility, Hanuman Das, to provide full story as this was obviously a private conversation. Ask the person who shared it to give you full conversation if Cyril does not.

          I am no fan of KW. I certainly am not a fan of Cyril Wohrer’s god awful music and cringe music videos https://youtu.be/V9hVMy3iWVE . But, he does not deserve to be defamed without full story.

    • Hrvoje Marjanovic

      I am sorry if your first comment was marked as spam by disqus, I don’t know why, but it has the same content as this comment, so there is no point in me reviving it.

      Using the word f*** is not justified, unless devotee who had conversation with you also used similar words, which I don’t believe he did. Consider my article as a mild reaction to the way you discuss with other people.

      I am sorry to notice that you still live in North Korean consciousness. So, when Howard das the Saint of Rio plays ping pong with girls although he is supposed to be sannyasi, you don’t consider this a problematic deviation. But when I publish video about him playing ping pong with girls, then you find it “offensive”.

      So, in other words, senior members of this movement should be allowed to deviate and do nonsense, and publishing true information about their activities is “offensive” and “blasphemy”.

      😀 😀 😀 😀 Since when is publishing the truth constitutes blasphemy? Only in North Korea.

      So, to mount real counter attack on me and my website, you have to find me using f*** word against other devotees or publishing information which is not true. And you will have big problem doing either of those.

      So, before discussing if I am “offensive”, let’s discuss if publishing the truth is offensive.
