Local ISKCON leaders distance themselves from masturbation preacherHanuman das
Do you remember how we warned Srila Prabhupada’s followers about Giridhari das and his nonsense preaching? Well, ISKCON leadership finally mustered strength to do the same.
Root cause of his acceptance of masturbation philosophy is that he is close friend of Sperm baba from Brazil, above photo photo is taken from Giridhari’s instagram post. Sperm baba visited Giridhari das and they had lunch together. Sperm baba was recently accused by his disciples that he had sex with some of his female followers.
Actually, Sprem baba admitted himself that he had sex with two of his female disciples in this newspaper article.
Giridhari das, of course, immediately took the opportunity to defend Sperm baba, his long-time friend, and he made the following video. You can turn on auto translate option:
Here is a refresher about some of Giridhari’s most crazy statements:
Well, it seems that ISKCON leadership finally understood that he went a step too far in insulting Srila Prabhupada.
Statement by Brazilian GBC
CGB [ Brazilian Governing Body ] STATEMENT 003/2018
Dear friends and members of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in Brazil.
To all of you, our humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All glories to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s sankirtana movement!
The Brazilian Governing Body ( CGB ) of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness ( ISKCON ) in Brazil would like to communicate to all its members and well-wishers that Śriman Giridhari Prabhu’s views, expressed in his articles and videos, do not necessarily reflect the official views, practices and siddhanta followed by ISKCON, or the purposes of ISKCON and/or its founder acarya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, as they may constitute, in some cases, the author’s personal understanding, interpretation and application of Vaisnava philosophy.
Śriman Giridhari Prabhu is director and proprietary of the Paraiso dos Pandavas project and disciple of Hridayananda das Goswami since 1998.
We hope that this statement may be received by everyone as a humble expression of trying to serve better in the mission of Srila Prabhupada and all previous acaryas.
We invite all of those interested to know the seven purposes of ISKCON:
- To systematically propagate spiritual knowledge to society at large and to educate all people in the techniques of spiritual life in order to check the imbalance of values in life and to achieve real unity and peace in the world.
To propagate a consciousness of Krishna, as it is revealed in the Bhagavad-gita and the Srimad-Bhagavatam. The principle of reincarnation is accepted.
To bring the members of the Society together with each other and nearer to Krishna, the prime entity, thus to develop the idea within the members, and humanity at large, that each soul is part and parcel of the quality of Godhead (Krishna).
To teach and encourage the sankirtana movement, congregational chanting of the holy names of God as revealed in the teachings of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
To erect for the members, and for society at large, a holy place of transcendental pastimes, dedicated to the personality of Krishna.
To bring the members closer together for the purpose of teaching a simpler and more natural way of life.
With a view towards achieving the aforementioned purposes, to publish and distribute periodicals, magazines, books and other writings.

This statement by Brazilian management is pretty mild, it doesn’t include any restrictions. But, something is better than nothing.
