Cow mistreatment in Australia

Cow mistreatment in Australia

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Cow torture in Australia

ISKCON society is a truly astonishing example of hypocrisy.

The pure mafia devotees of ISKCON are always interested in cash. However, cash desired by ISKCON leaders is especially sweet. They want cash without working. That is ideal. Working for cash is hard, in Srila Prabhupada’s books,  people who work for cash are called donkeys.

When one becomes actually on the platform of knowledge, then he does not work like an ass. But people want that people should work like ass. That is the difficulty. That is… There is a clash between our movement and others. They want to make all people to work hard like an ass, and we say that they… There is a difference of philosophy. Nāyaṁ deho deha-bhājāṁ nṛloke kaṣṭān kāmān arhate viḍ-bhujāṁ ye [SB 5.5.1]. We are preaching the, nāyaṁ deha nṛloke, in the human society, this is not meant for working so hard, like an ass, like a hog, simply for sense gratification. This is Kṛṣṇa consciousness philosophy. (Lecture Apr 8, 1974)

Little do the mafia devotees know that cheating people for money is also not good:

A sincere sweeper in the street is far better than the charlatan meditator who meditates only for the sake of making a living. (BG 3.7)

But how to milk money from rich people? It depends on the type of people you want to milk, but there is no better way to milk Hindus than to offer them to finance “cow seva”.

Milking Hindus for cash is greatly improved if you tell them that the cows are lovingly cared for. If we look at their website, we find this:

The ugly reality

If you are a stupid Hindu, you should give unconditionally. If you are a smart Hindu, then you should check how much money was actually collected for cows and how it was spent. Financial reports anybody? Of course, you will never get financial reports from pure mafia devotees. Because asking for financial reports is offensive. 🤣🤣🤣

Say Hare Krishna to the bull who goes by the name Navneet:

This photo is from May 2020. You can’t say Hare Krishna to this bull, because he is dead.

I am not an expert on cows and bulls, but even to me, this bull looks neglected. He is too skinny. And he was only 5 years old when he died.

You can learn about cows in the toilet

Krishna’s name is Go-brahmana hitaya ca:

The Lord is generally known as go-brāhmaṇa-hitāya ca, which means that His first duty is to see to the welfare of the cows and the brāhmaṇas. (KB 70)

But, if we promote cows, materialists will be annoyed. So, how to present cows to people? Now, let us switch from New Gokula farm to a nearby city Newcastle and the restaurant called Bhakti Tree which is run by devotees from the farm.

In that restaurant, devotees got an ingenious idea how to present cows to the western people. They don’t put pictures of the cows in the restaurant, they put them in the toilet:

So, while peeing and washing your hands, you can learn how important it is to care of cows. This should of course inspire you to donate for cows, and cows will of course never see that money.

Let’s ask for financial reports

Subject: New Gokula cow care financial reports for 2019
From: Hanuman das

Hare Krishna dear devotees,

please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

My name is Hanuman das, I am an investigative journalist who specializes in stories about Srila Prabhupada’s legacy.

I recently received a report about New Gokula farm which accuses you of cow neglect and redirecting donations received for cows to other projects.

Can you send me financial reports for your cow care department for 2019 which would show how many donations you received for cows and how you spent them.

Also, I would like to receive an email of the vet who treated bull Navneet who died recently.

Thank you very much.

Also, keep in mind that if you choose to ignore my query, I run the story with the information provided to me so far, which doesn’t look good.

ys Hanuman das

This is a standard ISKCON money scam, where tens of thousands of dollars are collected, but at the same time, cows and bulls are dying due to negligence. It shows the incompetence of the GBC for Australia Ramai Swami and the whole GBC body.

Collecting donations while at the same time not providing health care for cows is a sign of utmost hypocrisy. And, of course, when Gestapo officers are challenged by the journalists who are asking for information, they are not responding.
