You wanna see something really retarded? Radhanath baba learned to quote Prabhupada without actually quoting Prabhupada. He said that Prabhupada said something, but it is not clear what Prabhupada really said. Radhanath baba also mentions some verse from Bhagavad-gita, but he doesn’t quote the verse either. 😀 😀 😀 Rather, Radhanath Swami explains that Srila Prabhupada quoted a verse, we don’t know which one, and by that verse, Krishna meant that “The real magic of life is the wisdom of our own divinity”. 😀 😀 😀 Both Krishna and Prabhupada never gave that kind of statement. Prabhupada was not Dalai-salami nor he was mayavadi preacher like Radhanath baba.
My God, did you see what happened few days ago?
Henry Doktorski recorded an interview. What a heck … Did he ask permission from the GBC? How can people just talk? I don’t understand.
You can’t just talk with people, record this conversation and then publish that on youtube. This is not ok. We don’t support free speech.
Krishna consciousness as it was
Prabhupāda: Yes. When you say, “O my Lord, You have no leg, You have no hand, You have no eyes,” that means, “You are blind, You are lame, You are headless,” (laughter) “You have no sense”-“You are nonsense.” So this is prayer. This is their prayer. So we have to fight vigorously with these rascal impersonalists and voidists. When I was talking, somebody left the meeting in the morning. Yes. That means he could not tolerate (laughs) all these designations-rascal, miscreants, lowest of the mankind. Yes. (Room conversation, Surat, Dec 12st, 1970)
What is love, let’s hear it from Radhanath baba first:
Do you remember varna asrama? Well, if you are reading Prabhupada’s books, you surely remember that word, since something regarding varna-asrama is mentioned every 10 to 15 pages in Prabhupada’s books.
But the interesting thing is to notice the astounding difference how various Prabhupada’s disciple approach this topic.
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…)
You think that Radhanath baba is disciple of Prabhupada? Well, you are wrong. Unfortunately, this place is already taken by Shannon Gannon. 😀 😀 😀 So, since Radhanath baba is disciple of Shannon, if you become disciple of Radhanath baba, then Shannon indirectly becomes your guru. Is there anything better than having grandma guru who can make a tea and cookies for you and teach you yoga?
Trying to preach like Radhanath baba, don’t try this at home.
According to Radhanath baba, don’t be selective, be grateful for any nonsense quote Radhanath baba serves you. Be grateful for any deviation that he introduces in Prabhupada’s movement. That is the whole idea behind Radhanath’s sheep movement. Follow your counselor, be grateful, and follow Radhanath baba’s nonsense.
This material world is based on attraction to opposite sex. And marketing people seems to know that very well, therefore they use women to sell everything, from needle to locomotive.
Here, Radhanath’s baba is trying to teach us very important lesson. Successful person sees “positive opportunity” in everything. Something to learn. But what is there to learn? This can be whatever you imagine it to be. I mean Prabhupada was very straightforward, he said material world is not a place for gentleman, and that we need to get out of it. Material world is full of danger on every step, dukhalayam asasvatam. And we have only one thing to learn in this material world, and that is that we need to become devotee of Krishna and go Back to Godhead.
