How to lose your retirement money in Mayapur – the city of justice

How to lose your retirement money in Mayapur – the city of justice

I never really understood geographical Krishna consciousness.

That idea is definitely present Srila Prabhupada’s books. If you live in a holy place, you will get additional benefits in your spiritual life. For ISKCON members, two main places are Mayapur and Vrindavan. But Mayapur is like a city, so many people want to live in the birthplace of Lord Caitanya.

If you want to live in Mayapur, the city of justice, one of the first things you need to do is find a place to stay. You might rent a place, of buy an apartment. But you can be even more advanced than that, you can buy apartment that doesn’t exist.

As soon as I heard this guy’s voice, my first impression is that he is a cheater, just by the tone of his voice. But he is a sophisticated cheater. He uses many Srila Prabhupada’s quotes to prove that one should live in Mayapur but he doesn’t mention the most important thing. Holy places should be inhabited by people who wish to live simply, “simple living, high thinking”. Srila Prabhupada never said that you should move to a holy place to live is a super-luxurious skyscraper, that whole idea is completely idiotic.

Nevertheless, Srimati devi dasi from Italy decided to fully pay for her super luxurious unexisting apartment.

She received the invoice from Ajamila das ACBSP:

As visible on the invoice, she wired the money in two installments:

So, the above first payment was made in November of 2017, the amount was 47235 EUROS.

The second payment was made on February 2018, in the amount of 9773 EUROS.

And here is how the main manager, Ajamila das looks like:

If I would have to imagine a guy who can sell you apartments in unexisting skyscrapers in the middle of nowhere, that guy would look like exactly like this. And his Indian business partner looks like this:

The above photo shows Ajamila’s assistant, Sanjoy Roy.

This is the third assistant, Santa Gaurahari das. Is that a Croatian hat? Well, yes, it is. Maybe he learned how to steal from HDZ, which is the main political party in Croatia. Their ex-boss Ivo Sanader is currently in jail for stealing buildings.

While Santa Claus brings you presents, Santa Gaurahari das takes away your money.

Although this project was announced back in 2013, and supposed to be completed by Gaura Purnima 2018, not much was done by September of 2018, and the project looked like this:

Mataji made her payments, the apartment was supposed to be finished by Gaura Purnima 2018. But, as the time was passing by, one deadline after another was broken. One year later, in February 2019, she demanded her money back:

Hare Krishna Ajamil and Sanjoy.

As per your request I’m writing down here my final decision of rescinding the purchase contract with MVD Sdn in the Nitai Building for that apartment Nr. 1-3.

I’m then asking back the total amount of 58,000€ as per the final invoice released in 2017, march the 21st.

As we discussed, the delay of the delivery of the apartment ( expected for Gaura Purnima 2018 ) has been postponed more times and for too long time and it’s still pending now.

This is not acceptable for me also because what has be done since I paid the total amount one year ago is minimal ( 1 wall down, 3 windows opened, some of the electric system and some plaster on the walls) and the problems connected to the only road with ISKCON are not solved yet.

I kindly request you to transfer 5,000€ ( maybe some cash included) within one week by now on my Italian bank account ( see below details ), the half of the total amount within 2 months by now and the rest in 4 months by now.

I’m sorry but I cannot wait longer and I’m sure that you can easily manage this small amount ( compared to the amounts which you are managing).

I’m not asking any interests or damages, well aware of the support received by Sanjoy during these years.

I’m sure you will not put my future further in troubles and give me more stress.

I need to move on.

The manager claims that the apartment will be finished within 2-3 months

The first lie is that Ajamila claimed at the bottom of this email that the apartment will be finished within 2-3 months. That was February 2019, now is the end of September 2019, and the apartment is still not finished.

Dear Srimati d.d. pamho agtsp

You have requested a refund for the purchase of the apartment NITAI 1-3. We have not been able to deliver your apartment as per your requirements. We regret that we could not serve you with a sooner delivery. The circumstances have been exceedingly challenging but we are confident that we will soon reward all our patient buyers with a residence in Mayapur wherein they will be able to very peacefully execute their dwelling and retirement duties very peacefully in Krishna consciousness.

Our policy is that when we get a buyer for your apartment the money will be passed on to you. Now that you have given us your final decision, we will start marketing your apartment to secure a new buyer. As of today, we will move forward on that.

To assist your immediate request, we will give you Rs. 1 lakh.

Since we have already committed all available money on the immediate plumbing phase, we don’t have any additional money at this point in time.

All our available cash for the next two months has been spent on ordering materials for the Plumbing System. We plan our expenses ahead of time and anything more than that has to wait to be scheduled in.

We anticipate that we will find a new buyer within 1-6 months. In any event, we plan to have the apartment ready for occupation within 2-3 months.

We hope this meets you well. Hare Krishna!

The manager claims that the project is completely bankrupt

Here is the letter from a few days later, where Ajamila das claims that they don’t have more than 5000 Eur in cash. My question is: How do you build two skyscrapers with only 5000 euros? Either he is lying or he is completely bankrupt. In any case, investing your retirement money in his apartments is not a good idea:

Dear Srimati d.d. Hare Krishna!

My apology from Sanjoy, for the delay in this email. I was away on some important work.

As per your initial request at the last meeting we had in our office, you requested we give you one lakh within a week. So we agree with that.

Now you are asking for Euros 5,000 which is beyond what we have in cash right now. We have already spent everything we have on the immediate construction for the next two months.

The best we can do is take from our allocated construction money around Euros 2,500 after two months.

We may be able to give more if we get a buyer for your apartment, and we will update you on that.

After gradually realizing that she will never see her money, Srimati dd hopes that Mayapur leaders will help her:

Hare Krishna to all,
Besides very hard experiences in ISKCON Mayapur and Italy, a so called Śrīla Prabhupada’s disciple, Ajamila Das and his servant Sanjaya Roy of MVD stole all my money with a fake promise of a very safe apartment in the Nitai building years ago.
I’m on the street, my life and also my health are in danger because of this and because of all the anxiety this matter is giving. I also went to the hospital last week and I mentioned ISKCON.
If I don’t have my money back I will proceed with a big legal case involving ISKCON too.
I don’t include more details about this cheating system of MVD because I know you know already the situation there but I’m ready to send more details if needed.

Instead of spreading information about the fake towers far and wide, Mayapur management decided to help cheater Ajamila das. So, that other devotees can fall in the same trap.

Ajamila Das is not a representative of ISKCON. We heard he is doing some apartment developments. And I don’t know what deal he made with you. I don’t know what aggremant you made with Ajamila Das. Why are you making us a party if we were not involved from previously.

🤣🤣🤣🤣 Ajamila is not representative of ISKCON? 🤣🤣🤣🤣 I couldn’t imagine a more spineless reply.

Although Ajamila is not representative of ISKCON, influential people like Jayapataka Swami could talk with him, right? But I don’t see any desire to talk coming from Jayapataka Swami’s side. Did he agree to speak with Ajamila? Nope. Did he agree to send his managers to help resolve the situation? Nope. Did he warn all his disciples not to buy apartments from Ajamila das, the “cheater genius”? Nope. Did he agree to apply pressure to Ajamila to return the money? Nope. Why not? Because he is so pure. Pure devotees don’t want to involve themselves into “worldly dealings”. They are “transcendental”. I mean, they will gladly take your money if you want to give a donation, but when you are lonely mataji who has been robbed and needs your help, they will tell you that they “don’t know”.

Summary of payments and remaining debt

Here is a summary of payments and remaining debt by Srimati dd:

I received 3.200€ the 28th of August
and 3.190€ the 15th of April
about 2000€ extra by cash

That means they still owe her the amount of around 50 000 EUROS.

Last chance

I was kinda angry when I saw all this information, but I am always trying to be fair, so I need to hear the version of the opposite party. Although evidence is overwhelming, I wanted to hear from Ajamila:

Dear Ajamila prabhu,

please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

My name is Hanuman das, I am an investigative journalist and I run website

This is the most popular news website for ISKCON members after Dandavats.

I am currently reviewing the evidence sent to me by Srimati dd from Italy. She paid you for an apartment but required a refund because you didn’t deliver the apartment in time. As far as I understand, she is back to Italy and currently doesn’t have a place to stay. So she needs money urgently.

You promised to repay her in March, and the deadline was 6 months from February 13th, 2019. If I am able to calculate it correctly, deadline was 13th August 2019.

She notified me that she didn’t receive her money yet, and your team stopped communicating with her and that you are not paying her even small amounts. Doesn’t that mean that you are totally broke? If you don’t have money to pay her that means you will surely not be able to finish buildings. That is something which ISKCON devotees are supposed to know, so that wouldn’t get cheated.

I don’t want to damage your business by running this story before hearing from you. So, what is the plan here, when do you plan to return the money? I would say I can wait one more month before running this story.

I am attaching statistics for my website for the last 30 days. As you can see, more than 4000 people visited it during this period.

If I hate something, that is injustice and cheating. Although I don’t have any executive power, I can make sure that anybody who cheats is exposed.

If my article comes out, believe me, you will not sell an unexisting apartment ever again.

your servant, Hanuman das

Dear Hanuman Prabhu and all the respected devotees expressing concern about the residential private developments in Sridham Mayapur. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

It is a fact that Srila Prabhupada stated in Srimad Bhagavatam 6-2-40 purport that he wanted his devotees from all over the world to retire in Mayapur. Based on this instruction we underwent our residential development project in Mayapur to please Srila Prabhupada.

It is not a fact that our project is to provide luxurious apartments with gold taps and the like but rather to provide apartments where all modern amenities work properly so that devotees can retire peacefully with the least anxiety. Defining a variety of facilities that work properly as luxury is incorrect.

The project is behind schedule owing to so many unforeseen circumstances (this happens all over the world) but in spite of that we are confident that Krishna will empower us to complete the project in due course.

Because the project is behind schedule is not proof that I am a gangster. Here is my daily schedule:

To please Srila Prabhupada so that I can go back to Goloka Vrindavana in this very life-time, I attend mangal arati daily, chant at least 16 good rounds, strictly follow the four regulative principles, eat once or twice a day, and outside of that I work on the said residential project from which the Mayapur temple is a significant beneficiary. On Madhava Tithis and Ekadasis I mostly observe nirjal, reduce sleeping, and increase hearing and chanting.

Our residential development project is one of hundreds in Mayapur that are all independent from ISKCON. The ISKCON management in Mayapur understandably can’t get involved in all those private developments outside the ISKCON campus. It’s not appropriate therefore to target any ISKCON leaders. We humbly request those genuinely concerned about the development of Mayapur to please exercise some Vaisnava restraint.

Srimati d.d. has requested a refund and we are doing our best to achieve that as soon as possible. We are paying her by installments according to how much we have available. Her public complaints with unfounded accusations can only cause further delay in her receiving funds. We implore her to please exercise some restraint and patience. We apologize profusely to Srimati d.d. for not being able to serve her better and we request her to please bear with us while we do the needful by making the regular payments until completion.

Praying for the mercy of the Vaisnavas so that we can complete our service to Srila Prabhupada and the Vaisnavas. Hare Krishna!

Your unworthy servant

I was ready to wait for another 30 days for Ajamila to return the money. But he didn’t bother to tell me when is he going to return the money. Additionally, he is defending ISKCON Gestapo gangsters who did nothing to apply pressure on him to return the money. Now I can conclude: Don’t invest your retirement money with those two cheaters, Ajamila das “The Vastu expert” and his companion, Sanjoy “money joy” Roy. They are cruel criminals who selected women and retired people as their targets. Who knows how many other people they robbed besides Srimati dd.

And also, don’t expect pure devotees to inform you about all the cheating that is going on in Mayapur, they are “too transcendental”. And of course, don’t except ISKCON Gestapo managers to help you in any way.

Only a crazy megalomaniac would start building a skyscraper in the middle of nowhere without securing proper financing.
