My Response to “anonymous revelations” emailHanuman das
Jesus Christ, everybody wants to be revolutionary these days.
Being revolutionary is quite an adventure, and it is a much more interesting life than being a follower of the ISKCON’s pure spineless-Gestapo corporation.
It seems that this letter is circulating around, for sure it appeared on Tim Lee’s Krishna1008 website and some of my friends forwarded me this email. I usually don’t comment on articles published on Tim Lee’s website because all his articles seem to be written in rtvik delirium and I am not interested in Cinderella level stories, but I will make an exception this time.
My commentary to the letter
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda!
I am an old disciple of Śrīla Prabhupāda who, for reasons that will become clear after you read the rest of this post, wishes to remain anonymous.
Many devotees have written messages pro and con the Gurukuli lawsuit. What both sides don’t know is that the lawsuit is actually Śrīla Prabhupāda’s desire. Let me explain.
When Shrila Prabhupada passed away, I was in India. At the time of his passing, I was in Delhi, doing some service for the Vrindaban Mandir. As soon as I heard of Shrila Prabhupada’s passing, I rushed to Vrindaban, only to find that the samadhi ceremony had already been performed. All the devotees were shocked and lamenting in separation. All that is, except the new “gurus,” who were celebrating. Their mood was in such contrast to the rest of the devotees; it really stood out.
As I entered the temple guest house I saw Shrila Prabhupada’s sister, Pishima. Spontaneously, I paid my dandavats to her. I had known Pishima a long time and she greeted me warmly. Pishima invited me to her room in the guesthouse, and I was only too glad to spend some time in her association.
At this time, Pishima, as the rest of us, were engulfed in grief at the passing of our Gurudeva. Through her tears and grief, Pishima told me many confidential things that day. She implored me to keep them secret until the proper time. Accordingly, I have remained silent until the present situation has made disclosure of some of her confidences appropriate.
Really, it took this guy 50 years to reveal what Pisima told him. Why would that be? Why didn’t he reveal this in the 80s when zonal acaryas took over? Why didn’t he reveal this after Tamala Krishna Goswami’s death? Why didn’t he reveal this when the ISKCON Gestapo regime introduced administratively authorized spineless guru nonsense. He had plenty of opportunities to reveal all this. Poison issue took off in the nineties, that was an ideal moment to come up with his info.
Pishima had already confided in me in Mayapur in 1975 that Shrila Prabhupada was being poisoned to death. Shrila Prabhupada had brought her to Mayapur to cook for him, and for a short time, I was her kitchen helper. She was very concerned at the time that there was a conspiracy among Shrila Prabhupada’s leading disciples and the Gaudiya Math to murder him and take over the movement.
At our meeting in Vrindaban after Shrila Prabhupada’s disappearance, Pishima confirmed that Shrila Prabhupada had been poisoned. Shrila Prabhupada had told her specifically that his inner circle of sannyasis were the poisoners.
Says the anonymous guy… 😂😂😂 Well, keeping this secret for 50 years makes him an accomplice. Keeping evidence of criminal activities makes you an accomplice. A few months ago, Jyotirdharma came up with his video testimony against Radhanath, he is what I call a credible witness. This anonymous chicken has no credibility at all.
Shrila Prabhupada had told her many other things as well. He said that he decided to accept the poisoning as Krishna’s will. Just like Maharaja Parikshit accepted Shringi’s curse, he saw it as an opportunity to leave this world and return back to home. In addition, he wanted to destroy ISKCON.
This idea that Srila Prabhupada wanted to destroy ISKCON is nonsense. Srila Prabhupada was never concerned about this. We don’t find a single piece of evidence that would corroborate this claim. Srila Prabhupada was interested in transferring genuine Krishna consciousness to his followers, organizational structures didn’t bother him. If you are Krishna consciousness, ISKCON can’t really harm you. Because, if you want genuine Krishna consciousness ISKCON is not for you, ISKCON is cheap people who feel good in brainless Gestapo society where no intellectual debates ever take place.
I questioned Pishima closely on this point, because it seemed to be contrary to common sense. Pishima said that Shrila Prabhupada had determined that the leadership of ISKCON had deviated so completely from the actual teachings of the Gaudiya-Vaishnava sampradaya that he wanted to destroy the organization, lest they become another Catholic Church and attempt world domination.
😂😂😂 Srila Prabhupada wanted to destroy ISKCON by revealing it to his sister only. 😂😂😂😂 This is hilarious. Srila Prabhupada was a fighter, and absolute authority in the movement, if he wanted to destroy a movement, he could do it very publicly. If he thought that senior sannyasis are conspirators, he could reveal this to his grihastha disciples. He already disbanded GBC in the past, he could have disbanded it completely if he wanted. Actually, ISKCON was never a problem, as it was initially conceived by Prabhupada as a loose confederation. GBC actually destroyed it with the centralization and puppy guru approval process.
According to Pishima, Shrila Prabhupada was totally disgusted with his disciples’ failure to understand his pure Vrajabasi mood and that they became entangled in organizational politics. So he manipulated them into performing an elephant offense to destroy them. In this way, he was just like Krishna, who arranged to destroy His own family army, the Yadu dynasty, with a curse and a fratricidal war, lest they become too much of a burden for the earth.
Srila Prabhupada was not in Vrajabasi mood, his mood was spreading Krishna consciousness far and wide for the benefit of the conditioned souls. Srila Prabhupada was never into destroying anybody, that rasa didn’t exist in his personality. Even mayavadis, who were Srila Prabhupada’s philosophical enemies, Srila Prabhupada wanted to reform them, no destroy them. Srila Prabhupada desired very much to destroy ignorance, not any particular group of people.
At this point, I am completely convinced that this so called email is fake. None of this ever happened.
The basic philosophical mistake in the fake email is that a genuine society of devotees is somehow blocked by ISKCON. Under Radhanath’s guidance, ISKCON will gradually devolve to a totally insignificant sahajiya organization. In India, you can find literally hundreds of fake spiritual organizations. Behind every corner, you will find some “avatar” or baba full of “prema”. ISKCON is one such organization that became indistinguishable from other pseudo-spiritual movements.
Destruction of ISKCON is completely unnecessary since ISKCON doesn’t block anybody from practicing genuine Krishna consciousness. All we need is a sensible alternative. A sensible alternative will be formed by sensible devotees who leave ISKCON.
Shrila Prabhupada was so humble he viewed his own life and self-preservation as nothing. At that point he was much more concerned about the continuity of the sampradaya. He sacrificed his life so that his bogus disciples would be cut down and stopped from preaching in the wrong way, from a neophyte platform.
He could have cut down his disciples personally if he wanted to. Srila Prabhupada always gave an opportunity to everybody, he didn’t cut down anybody. Even when disciples messed up, he gave them a new chance. This whole letter is complete imagination.
When I asked Pishima what would happen to Shrila Prabhupada’s sincere disciples if ISKCON was destroyed, she explained that Shrila Prabhupada said that Krishna would protect them, and the devotees who had any spiritual intelligence would leave ISKCON before anything really bad happened. Events have borne this out.
Prabhupada said to Pisima, then Pisima said to the author of the letter, then he kept this most important information for himself for 50 years, to protect ISKCON that he hates. And then, in 2020, he didn’t publish it, as would be his duty as a disciple, rather, he sends it to Brainless Lee, who all of the sudden publishes it on his website. I mean, this is a nice fairytale, I will start reading this letter instead of Cinderella before I go to bed.
Then I asked Pishima how the result of the elephant offense would manifest. She told me that Shrila Prabhupada predicted that the ISKCON movement would become embroiled in court cases that would destroy their properties and bank balance, stop their preaching, and punish the so-called leaders. Now this is also happening.
No, Prabhupada said that the success of this movement depends on the sincerity of his followers. Only if his followers sincerely follow previous acaryas, this movement will be successful.
If leaders of ISKCON are not sincere, which is a fact, they will simply become another mundane corporation. Court cases didn’t actually destroy ISKCON. ISKCON was destroyed by the introduction of spineless institutional gurus who have to sign a gag order and be good puppies if they want their guru license to be extended.
Finally, I asked Pishima how the movement would go on after all this devastation. Pishima replied that Shrila Prabhupada had told her that Krishna would take care, and that he had already picked one of his disciples to be his successor. But the successor would not manifest his potency until after the present structure of ISKCON was completely destroyed.
Pretty good memory for a 70-year-old guy. He remembers all his questions and all answers by Pisima. But he forgot that sampradaya and Absolute Truth don’t depend on fake societies that grow around it. ISKCON will exist for a very long time because spineless gurus always existed in the past, and they will continue to exist in the future. And many disciples thrive in the mushroom environment, feed them stool and keep them in the dark and they will grow happily.
Pishima also told me many other things that Shrila Prabhupada told her that are not yet appropriate to reveal. I have kept these secrets in my heart these so many years. It is a relief to finally be able to see these predictions come true. Even though they are heavy, it assures me that Shrila Prabhupada knew everything all along, that Krishna is taking care of His movement, and that no cheater can cheat the greatest cheat without being thoroughly defeated in the end.
Oh, brave warrior, thank you for your revelation, where would we be without your guidance. I will put your letter on my shelf right next to a letter where Srila Prabhupada’s female disciples claim that Srila Prabhupada wanted them to become PGWM – Pretty guru with makeup.
Very truly yours,
Very truly yours,
