For 9200 USD, Radhanath baba sells mayavadi Bhagavad-gitaHanuman das
On this most auspicious day of appearance of Srila Prabhupada, who is best of all yogis, we continue to expose cheaters who are changing his teachings to accommodate mayavadis, and extract money from them.
Do you want to become gymnastic yogi? Do you want to become “spiritual” ? Do you want to earn a lot of money by teaching people how to reduce their fat? Well, you are on the right place? You can achieve all that and more if you enroll to a “super spiritual” Yoga teacher training course in Govardhana Eco village:
It is very important to notice two links, first is “Read more”, and second is “prerequisites”. Let’s click “Read more“, I am interested:
Oh, it’s mayavadi Shannon Gannon and her best disciple Radhanath baba. I am impressed, this course will surely be very “spiritual”.
But, I am not sure if mortal like me is qualified to associate with such elevated mayavadis, let’s click on “Prerequisites“, I am especially interested into books I have to read before attending the course:
So, I need to read “Journey Home” by Radhanath Swami or “Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramahamsa Yogananda. Yea, I agree, those two books have equal spiritual value, it doesn’t really matter which one you read.
I also need to read Bhagavad-gita, but not Bhagavad-gita by Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada’s gita is not good enough. Times have changed. This is real intelligence. While many devotees are mad at Jayadvaita Swami for editing Prabhupada’s Gita too much, Radhanath baba has much better solution. Throw Prabhupada’s Gita into garbage can and give to people Gita translated by mayavadi. This is much better for business.
Winthorp’s retarded translation
Ok, let’s quote a few verses from Winthrop’s Gita. You remember when Arjuna complains about consequences of killing his relatives (BG 1.40):
When irreligion is prominent in the family, O Kṛṣṇa, the women of the family become corrupt, and from the degradation of womanhood, O descendant of Vṛṣṇi, comes unwanted progeny. (Srila Prabhupada’s translation)
Winthorp translates it like this:
In the destruction of the family, The ancient family laws vanish; When the law has perished, Lawlessness overpowers the entire family also.
😀 😀 The guy has no clue what is he talking about. You remember BG 4.34. where it is said that you have to approach spiritual master, here is Winthorp’s translation:
Know this! Through humble submission, Through enquiry, through service (on your own part), The knowing ones, the perceivers of truth, Will be led to teach you knowledge.
Do I need a guru, based on this verse? I don’t know.
In other words, by reading this mayavadi Gita, your chances of ever becoming a devotee are slim. In the introduction, Winthorp explains where he took inspiration to translate the Gita:
As you can see, Prabhupada’s Gita is not good enough, so we have to read mayavadi translation of Gita to become “spiritual”.
If you want to compare Prabhupada’s Bhagavad-gita with numerous mayavadi nonsense, you can read the whole Winthorp’s Gita.
Ok, after you completed all prerequisites, after you have destroyed any chance of ever becoming a devotee by reading Mayavadi books, time to look again on the starting page of this course and find the price:
Ouch, 9200 bucks ??? I don’t think I will become “spiritual” any time soon.
This article is a warning to all potential disciples of Radhanath Swami. You can potentially become brahmacari and serve in Govardhana Eco Village. There, you will have to clean rooms and cook for mayavadi butt raising yoginis. Are you prepared to be humiliated like that? If you are 1% Prabhupada’s follower, you will never accept such humiliation.
And while butt-raising yoginis are reading Winthorp’s mayavadi translation of Bhagavad-gita, you will have to live in illusion that you are involved in “preaching project” and that you are serving Prabhupada in this way. It is better to be honest street sweeper than to serve mayavadis and gymastic yoginis. And, greatest visionary that ever lived, Srila Prabhupada, warned us about Radhanath baba and his followers:
For self-realization, one can live a controlled life, as prescribed in the śāstras, and continue carrying out his business without attachment, and in that way make progress. Such a sincere person who follows this method is far better situated than the false pretender who adopts show-bottle spiritualism to cheat the innocent public. A sincere sweeper in the street is far better than the charlatan meditator who meditates only for the sake of making a living. (BG 3.7p)
And that is exactly what Govardhana Eco village is, a facility for people to make a living by cheating the innocent public. Now you can see why Prabhupada’s Gita is not used in Govardhana eco village, it’s bad for Radhanath baba’s cheating business.
