Quick video about Prabhupada.
If this video is too big on your desktop, go to full screen.
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.
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)
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.
Remember the outrage when first Hridayananda das Goswami became member of the GBC body and GBC for Brazil, as concluded in the mid-term GBC meeting?
Well, it seems things started improving since he took reins of Brazil after being empowered by the GBC body in October last year. Here, we see that he is setting up preaching in a proper way according to standard of chastity and shyness and prescribed by Prabhupada. In this article, we analyze newest facebook post by his disciple Giridhari das, who manages ISKCON center called “Pandava paradise”:
Only way to fight nonsense is to publicly oppose it. And you can publicly opposite it only if you are well grounded in reading Prabhupada’s books, in this way, you will be able to recognize nonsense.
It is duty of every follower of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to keep his teachings intact and pure. However, today, in Prabhupada’s own society, fighting deviant philosophy is pronounced criminal activity. It is taught to be “offensive”. This is so because corrupt leaders of Prabhupada’s society established such social norms. It is “not good” to fight nonsense and be straight forward, because that might “offend” fake gurus and their followers.
Hopefully inspired by my post from yesterday, Jai das decided to write an email to Anuttama das, ISKCON’s public relations officer. It’s a nice letter, and we need more of such letters. This is how you mount pressure. This is how you become relevant.
This letter is not offensive and it was written according to proper etiquette.
This is a story how GBC jeopardized Prabhupada’s mission by putting less-than-ideal people on leadership positions.
I was always wondering how it is possible that I was banned from coming to a local temple just because I don’t believe Ramesh baba is divine and because I couldn’t accept sannyasis with female secretaries. Well, little did I know, that this is standard practice in ISKCON, nonsense is always protected, especially if nonsense is done by “pure devotees”, and those who point out things which are very wrong are called “offenders”. Actually, I am lucky that I wasn’t killed. (more…)
Here is my response to very offensive video which was made about my website. I tried to make it serious, but I couldn’t.
