Gopal Krishna Goswami joins yoga-girl-defence allianceHanuman das
ISKCON will sell whatever is popular, falling to the standard of mundane corporation, aiming to “please the public” and collect some money. ISKCON no longer has much in common with original Krishna consciousness as given by Srila Prabhupada.
To attract retarded people, you have to teach retarded nonsense. Here is the latest example:
You see Srila Prabhupada at the top of the poster, smiling, and inviting all the girls to practice “Yoga for self defence”. People often ask me if I am afraid of vaisnava aparadha. Yes, I am very much afraid of offending Srila Prabhupada by destroying his movement. Portraying Prabhupada as some Sai baba style guru who is teaching girls yoga defence is very offensive toward Srila Prabhupada.
So, who is the culprit here, who are the people responsible? Let’s check GBC zonal assignments for 2018:
So, there are 4 GBC-s for Mumbai Juhu: Bhima das, Deviakinandan das, Gopal Krishna Goswami and Radhanath Swami. First two are probably some lower ranked people who are ignorant about Prabhupada’s teachings, but people who are really responsible here “pure devotees” and “gurus” Radhanath Swami and Gopal Krishna Goswami. For Radhanath baba, nothing surprises me anymore, he is completely deviant mayavadi, but for Gopal Krishna Goswami, I am still somewhat surprised. Maybe he is trying to obtain new female secretary through this kind of “preaching”.
Don’t be fooled. Prabhupada never preached yoga asanas, Prabhupada never practiced yoga-asanas, and “Yoga for self defence” is such a stupid concept that my brain just blocks when I read that. How exactly you gonna defend yourself with yoga? You gonna meditate on attacker who is trying to kill you? You gonna touch him gently and stretch.
ISKCON is becoming dangerously stupid. If you really believe that yoga will help you to defend yourself, your are retarded.
So, what are Prabhupada’s original teachings? How women should be defended? According to Prabhupada, it’s very easy, women should be married and their husband will protect them. That is called common sense self defence.
And for women who alone because their irresponsible Kali-yuga husbands left them, if you really want to learn self defence, take some real martial art like Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which gives you knowledge about leverage which gives women some kind of chance to escape after being attacked. This movie is good example for this. Yoga defence for girls will not help women, it will make them even more vulnerable because they have false sense that they can defend themselves.
For women who are in situation that they need to defend themselves, better learn from people who really know what they are talking about:
