HEY GIRLS, Radhanath baba needs you to advertise yoga

HEY GIRLS, Radhanath baba needs you to advertise yoga

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.

And Radhanath baba know that principle, therefore he and his followers also decided to start selling their yoga stuff through girls. On this photo, you can see the same principle:

So, bhakti center in New York, which is Radhanath baba’s project, they are trying to sell you yoga by saying “please join this beautiful yogini”. I mean everybody wants to practice yoga with beautiful yoginis, right? Many karmis will come to yoga seminar with beautiful yoginis, hoping that they will also be able to negotiate private session with beautiful yogini during the night.

When I saw this image for the first time and I started reading the text, for a moment there I thought that I was dreaming. We want to attract people to join this movement by offering them beautiful yoginis? This is my worst nightmare coming true.

First of all, Prabhupada didn’t come to the west to bring is “yoga exercises”. On the contrary, he said that such yoga seminars are actually cheating.

Devotee: Can hatha-yoga hinder or help Krsna consciousness, or is it…?

Prabhupada: Hinder. Yes. Because it is useless, simply wasting time. You cannot perform hatha-yoga in this age. You do not follow the rules and regulations. You are simply bluffed. Do you know what is the rules and regulations of hatha-yoga factually?

Devotee: Not actually.

Prabhupada: Yes. You have to select a secluded place. Hatha-yoga is not practiced in assembly of so many men. Just you go to a hatha-yoga class. There are hundreds of members practicing, and he is collecting money, five dollars per seat. And you are thinking, “I am practicing.” That is useless waste of time and money. Hatha-yoga is not practiced in that way. You have to practice in a secluded place, alone. Do you do that?

Devotee: Yes. Not… No. I guess I don’t.

Prabhupada: It is very difficult in this age. Then you have to restrain yourself in so many things. Complete free from sex life. You have to eat under certain direction, you have to… So many things there are. These rules are not followed. Simply they have got some bodily gymnastic sitting posture. They are thinking, “I am practicing.” No. That is one of the items. So all the items cannot be observed in this age. Therefore it is wasting.
Srila Prabhupada, Colombus, Ohio, 1969

Real beauty

Secondly, this yogini is not beautiful. Yogini who teaches other men how to practice yoga is actually ugly according to Prabhupada, because Prabhupada defined beauty as chastity:

 So Bhīṣmadeva also advised that the shyness of woman, lajjā, is the control. If you break that shy, what is called, shyness, then there will be disaster. That is the control valve naturally given. And woman’s shyness is one beauty, beauty. We have got practical experience. And command also. We have practical experience in our life. You have seen that my friend came, Dinanath Mishra. They were our neighbor. So one day we were sitting on the corridor of the house. One sweeper woman, she wanted to come within, but very shyful, with a covering of the head, although with broomstick and bucket, she was waiting because we were sitting both side. So she was feeling little shy not to enter the house. So we decided to move so that she may come. This example is given. She is a sweeper, not very respectable, maidservant or sweeper, but on account of her shyness we had to welcome, “Yes, we are moving. You come in.” Just see. This is psychology. Therefore Bhīṣmadeva, at his dying stage, he advised that woman’s shyness is the valve to control. If that shyness is broken, then it will create disaster. Puṁścalī. This is the psychology. So things are changing nowadays everywhere, not only in India, in other countries also. But this is the psychology. So all these examples are given. Why? Just to control the mind. In Hindi there is a proverb that “Money and wife, you should always keep in control.” There are so many examples. (Lecture SB 05.06.04 – Vrndavana)

Conclusion

As you can see, once again, Radhanath baba and his Bhakti center New York degraded themselves up to the level of inviting people to enjoy beautiful yoginis. This is exactly opposite of what Prabhupada was preaching.

What’s next? Krishna brothel movement?

  • Tusta Ji Dass

    • Hrvoje Marjanovic

    At the German farm they also rent function rooms to yoga groups, see link. Formerly temples were inhabited by devotees, now in order to make some money they invite yoginis to teach hatha yoga. Devotees were told to live outside, take a job and go to work at a factory. So this yoga thing they do everywhere, Australia, US, GB. Farms are maintained by WWOOFERS, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YErsjt_YCT4), because devotees now live outside, have to pay rent, and have no time to practice bhakti on a Hare Krishna farm. This of course not what Prabhupada wanted — that some leaders turn his movement into a private property and devotee community goes there as paying visitors.
