ISKCON baba starts non standard worship

ISKCON baba starts non standard worship

After failing to reach prema by travelling with his girlfriend around the world, ISKCON’s most famous celibate is now trying weird alter setup, so hopefully this will stop giving rain and sunshine to Hanuman das, ISKCON’s greatest offender. 😀 😀 😀

This photo was taken in the Sacinandana baba’s home base at Schloss Kranzlin, Darritzer Straße 6, Kränzlin, Brandenburg, Germany seen on this event page

Initial spy report: This Veda akadmie is Sacinandana Swami headquarters, beside his Gopi lila place next to the lake. His the supervisor of the veda academy. On that altar they do beside the worship of Panchatattva, the worship of demigods. On that altar are the nine Planets in the form of nine murtis and they do demigod worship there.

You remember Prabhupada? He is founder acarya of this movement. Before cheaters like Sacinandana baba took control preaching was going like this:

 My dear Giriraja,
Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated December 30th, 1971.
I am not surprised that Mr. Rathanam Iyer has decided to cancel the program you were planning. I was not eager to accept his proposal in the beginning because it has been our experience that it is never good to have to depend upon others for our preaching. I am sorry that now that it has been advertised in the newspapers that I am coming to Madras, if I do not come our prestige may suffer. Anyway what is done is done. The fact is that I am the only one in India who is openly criticizing, not only demigod worship and impersonalism, but everything that falls short of complete surrender to Krishna. My Guru Maharaja never compromised in His preaching, nor will I nor should any of my students. We are firmly convinced that Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and all other are His part and parcel servants. This we must declare boldly to the whole world, that they should not foolishly dream of world peace unless they are prepared to surrender fully to Krishna as Supreme Lord. (Bombay,3 January, 1972,Madras)

Correction – additional spy info

More info about this incident from another spy:

Haribol! I just saw your article about SNS’s so-called demi-god worship. I must say that it is not correct info. I have been there myself and can say that they are worshipping the 10 avataras of Vishnu, not demigods.

However, the individual people living there do a lot of other nonsense. SNS is not the director of that Veda Academy, it is one of his first disciples, Gadadhara. He has his business in that place. Actually, it is the headquarters of his company plus some devotees living there, they work for him. They have this one room with their altar, and SNS comes there for programmes, so it is not even a temple (although they might think that they are super special devotees).

the murtis on the altar have this shape:

> but they are made of metal and are small, but you can see that they are all standing and look a bit human-like.


Prabhupada presented standard Krishna consciousness and Krishna should be worshipped as advised by Prabhupada. Prabhupada never advised his followers to worship dasa avataras in this kind of setup.

  • I counted the number of murtis. There are 10 in number. I don’t think it is Navagraha. I think those are deities of Dasha Avataras.

      Yes, you are right, I corrected the article.

        Hanuman Das. A thing to especially be aware of is the growing trend of covered Brahmavadi Philosophy within ISKCON. This certain type of Brahmavadi is very dangerous because they accept that Krishna’s Form is eternal and all-pervasive and that He is in fact Bhagavan, God. But they have a very twisted view of the nature of his Form in relation to the Brahmajyoti. Thus their preaching will pass off as devotional to only the most well-read and keenest observers. I am certain you will see this type of preaching increase over the years in your researches of deviations popping up. “Syncretists / Astro-Theologists” a very new-agey crowd of people are actually starting to claim Personalist Vaishnavas who accept that Krishna actually appeared in earth 5,000 plus years ago are atheists. In other words they are claiming that we are atheists for accepting literally what Krishna and Prabhupada say As It Is. And they are starting to actually preach this. At the same time they are talking about Krishna and actually believing that they are actual Krishna devotees. Santos Bonacci is one individual preaching this nonsense. But similar teachings are actually being spread within ISKCON. I know these teachings are happening because I have had prolonged conversations with Santos regarding his views on Krishna. It took me a very long time to pinpoint what he actually believes, until he finally admitted it directly. He is teaching that Krishna’s Nitya Lila are real whereas the Bhaumi Lila are mostly symbolic / representational / astro – logical. They take word jugglery to a whole new level. It is very dangerous because even well read Prabhupada disciples can potentially be misled by it. Because they never openly admit this stuff unless you really get on them about it. I mention all this as a head’s up to deviations you are likely to see pop-up very soon. You will be able to spot it it when you see it presented to you. But they keep their real views hidden very well unless you press them for what they really believe. It is something other devotees will need to be made aware of. I have actually been called an atheist by these people for accepting Krishna’s statements literally. It has gotten very bizarre.

          Thanks very much for this info. Hard to believe these people think that they are devotees. I guess Krishna gives different types of intelligence to different types of people to fulfill their mentalities. Very unfortunate that they have been given such mercy yet they insist on warping everything and fall into such a deplorable condition as this. Hare Krishna.
