You are looking for a guru? Taking into consideration the advancement of Kali-yuga, I would suggest that you read all Srila Prabhupada’s books before selecting a spiritual master.
OK, we are going to break the first rule of ISKCON. The first rule is: Never criticize pure devotees when they are doing nonsense. This is very important because pure devotees feel uncomfortable if their nonsense is criticized. How will they proceed in doing nonsense if they are constantly criticized?(more…)
This article is written by one of ISKCON devotees in Brazil, who has to watch all the nonsense happening in his country. Of course, according to ISKCON’s “Silent sheep non offender” theory, he was supposed to stay quiet about all the nonsense happening there, but he couldn’t.
Brazil is under direct supervision of the GBC Executive committee consisting of:
- Bhakti Caru Swami
- Madhusevita das
- Bhaktivaibhava Swami
All those people are responsible for this craziness that is happening in Brasil.
And now story about sannyasis touching women, and of course, we don’t even have to mention it, having cute female secretaries.
Once upon a time, great “acarya” appeared, he promised us that he will “save” ISKCON’s western mission and bring us millions of new followers, and the project Krishna West was born. He pleaded to the GBC body to allow him to test his new project and everybody will witness how powerful it is. We just need to replace dhotis with Jeans, and we need to replace sweet rice with muffins. If you are rich, you can also replace harmonium with piano, and for poorer folks, synthesizer will do. If we do that, millions will join our movement.
Feminists in the GBC body started panicking. And the source of panic is new book by Bhakti Vikasa Swami called “Women: Masters or mothers”.
Leadership of any organization is entitled to ban books which they consider dangerous for wider body of their members. But banning of books should be last measure to prevent deviant philosophies.
Since this book contains mostly Srila Prabhupada quotes, a million dollar question is what is actual deviation within this book?
