Can somebody explain this to me?
What can I say, while this is not most philosophically potent video which I ever saw, it is clearly one of the most funny ones, sent to me by devotees from Russia, who are sharing it in a more underground way, because it is “illegal” in ISKCON to make fun of people who claim that we will conquer the world with jeans and lasagna instead of dhoti and sweet rice. It is especially illegal if jeans and lasagna tattva is preached by somebody who is guru-list “guru”. If somebody is on the guru-list, then you are supposed to believe in lasagna and jeans, and don’t make funny videos about it.
Here is my response to very offensive video which was made about my website. I tried to make it serious, but I couldn’t.
UPDATE: This article contains errors, see here for clarification.
I am humble devotee. I believe in ISKCON authorities. I never question their behavior because I am not envious.
Whatever the pure devotees do, I accept as divine. The moment I start doubting ISKCON gurus and their behavior, I become the offender, and I also risk to commit the first offense to the Holly Name.
Many people are wondering how Krishna consciousness in USA is in such a bad shape. It’s
in bad share because leaders are nonsense people. And now, to save western mission, we need Hridayananda das Goswami. Actually, to use indian names is not allowed in Krishna West since it can scare people off, so let’s just call him Howard das Goswami. Now, Howard das Goswami will save Prabhupada’s mission through the medium of jeans and lasagna. Now, when Howard das Goswami is GBC for Brazil, we can call Krishna West nonsense one of the official ISKCON theologies. By the way, I don’t think that Howard, aka Lasagna-man will be able to make any significant breakthrough.
Oh my God, now sahajiyas started dancing together.
Break dance for Prabhupada? I don’t think so. Break dance as a preaching strategy? Every nonsense goes as preaching strategy these days.
So, by doing break dance, we are actually preaching against Prabhupada, because we are demonstrating that man is actually evolved from a monkey.
Hare Krishna, today we have another video about strange personalities which ended up on “the guru list”. Vedic scriptures never mention “the guru list” anywhere, and Prabhupada also never mentioned the guru list. Srila Prabhupada explicitly said that all his disciples have right to initiate provided they follow the process perfectly. He never said that gurus should be “voted in” by sannyasis with female secretaries and by good friends of Ramesh baba.
