Investors rejoicing as ISKCON introduces sannyasi businessman tattvaHanuman das
OK, we are going to break the first rule of ISKCON. The first rule is: Never criticize pure devotees when they are doing nonsense. This is very important because pure devotees feel uncomfortable if their nonsense is criticized. How will they proceed in doing nonsense if they are constantly criticized?
Additionally, criticising nonsense is not good because by doing this, your are actually committing nonsense aparadha. If you insult nonsense, the nonsense-bija lata in your heart will be destroyed. And you will never be able to perform nonsense devotional service ever again. 😀 😀
And demigod in charge for nonsense will not be pleased by you. 😀 😀
OK, there is ton of nonsense in ISKCON. Major ISKCON nonsense is Sacinandana baba, sannyasi who travels with his girlfriend. We are fighting that nonsense for over two years now, but nonsense is still going on. That means nonsense is very resiliant in ISKCON 😀 😀 😀
Today, we are speaking about “sannyasi businessman” nonsense. This goes against ABC of Krishna consciousness. So, what is a definition of sannyasa? Why do people take sannyasa? The purpose of sannyasa is to be completely engaged in the preaching mission of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. To perform devotional service, sannyasis say goodbye to two things: Women and making money. This enables them to use all their time to be engaged in devotional service.
The main purpose of sannyāsa life is to be in constant companionship with the Supreme Lord, either by thinking of Him within the heart or hearing of Him through aural reception. (SB 3.24.35p)
The real purpose of accepting sannyāsa is to dedicate oneself to the service of Mukunda. By serving Mukunda, one can actually be liberated from the bondage of material existence. (CC Madhya 3.8)
But in ISKCON, where we are constantly reminded not to criticise pure nonsense, we have sannyasis who are directors of corporations. I am wondering what is the point of that. Krishna consciousness is kinda boring so sannyasi has to run a big company?
Let’s look at Indian government company records:
You can verify it here http://www.mca.gov.in/mcafoportal/viewDirectorMasterData.do and enter director ID 00112170
Also, there is another website which shows historical data, which lists another company:
Here is the link if you want to verify it: https://www.zaubacorp.com/director/BHAKTI-CHARU-SWAMI/00112170
Srila Prabhupada’s example
After Srila Prabhupada took sannyasa, he never engaged himself into managing a corporation. He managed only entities which were directly connected with Krishna consciousness, such as BBT and ISKCON itself.
His disciples who want to continue parampara should try to follow Srila Prabhupada’s example, and that is what actually makes them qualified to continue the parampara. Instead of that, they established retarded guru list system, where we have to accept anybody on the “guru list” as pure devotee, even if he is a sannyasi with a girlfriend.
Group of people voted 20 years ago that Bhakti Caru Swami is “guru” and “pure devotee”. Majority of that people who voted for him to be put on guru list blooped anyway, and now we must accept transcendental sannyasi businessman tattva. This is retarded way of thinking.
So, when you give a donation to a poor ISKCON sannyasi, you are actually giving money to a corporate director. 😀 😀
Another problem is that life of a sannyasi is like an open book, why the ISKCON members don’t know about this company, what is the field of work of this company, and why an ISKCON sannyasi is a director of that company? If Bhakti Caru thinks he can be a sannyasi and corporate director at the same time, he should be transparent and put the clarification on his website, but we don’t find any such clarification.
Of course, some will say now that I am “cruel” for publishing this, that we should forgive Bhakti Charu Swami for being sannyasi businessman because he has done many other types of devotional service. If you study my website in more depth, you can understand that I am not here to forgive or decide. My website primarily exists for transparency. Potential disciples of Bhakti Charu Swami will decide if they can live with sannyasi businessman guru or not. But, transparency must be there if we want to run an honest society. And currently, GBC body members and gurus and punishing everybody who is working on transparency by throwing him out of the movement and calling him offender. This will have to change.
I am here only to give grave warnings, and Srila Prabhupada in his books gave us a lot of grave warnings:
If a so-called spiritual master accepts a disciple for his personal benefit or for material gain, the relationship between the spiritual master and the disciple turns into a material affair, and the spiritual master becomes like a smārta-guru. There are many caste gosvāmīs who professionally create some disciples who do not care for them or their instructions. Such spiritual masters are satisfied simply to get some material benefits from their disciples. Such a relationship is condemned by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura, who calls such spiritual masters and disciples a society of cheaters and cheated. They are also called bāulas or prākṛta-sahajiyās. Their aim is to make the connection between the spiritual master and the disciple into a very cheap thing. They are not serious in wanting to understand spiritual life. (CC Madhya 24.330p)
