Leave ISKCON – yes or no?Hanuman das
Many sincere followers of Srila Prabhupada are considering leaving Rotten Gestapo society that ISKCON has become. Actually, many people already left ISKCON in the past, and many will leave it in the future.
The point of this article is to make it perfectly clear that leaving one organization and joining another, will not necessarily solve your problem of being cheated. The idea is to really understand what is going on. Idea is to acquire transcendental knowledge from Srila Prabhupada’s books. Idea is to be able to see the world with eyes of knowledge.
For example, many people leave ISKCON and join Paramadvaiti Swami’s organization, and they become cheated in even more grossly than in ISKCON:
The goal of life is to become a genuine follower of Srila Prabhupada. That is an increasingly difficult thing to do in ISKCON because this organization is going further and further away from Srila Prabhupada’s original teachings.
So, if you are a member of ISKCON, you have to be silent, you are not allowed to defend Srila Prabhupada because this is “offensive”.
So, becoming independent of ISKCON is essential, but joining some other similarly fake organization is not a real solution.
As ISKCON is pushing through it’s Gestapo strategy, more and more Srila Prabhupada’s followers find themselves outside of ISKCON and are able to remain connected. As their number grows, gradually, a new organization can be formed. But it is always important to remain “independently thoughtful”.
