My review of the movie “Reconnection”

My review of the movie “Reconnection”

Jaya Madhava Prabhu forwarded me this movie. I was notified about it last year but I couldn’t watch it since it was too mundane. Anyway, this time I decided to write a review.

Dear Jaya Madhava prabhu,

please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

thank you for sending me this wonderful preaching strategy tool.

I it good that we are continuing the practice of hiding Srila Prabhupada, and not even mentioning his name. He is not founder acarya of ISKCON after all. It’s time for people to understand that new Acarya is Big Buck Goswami, sannyasi who owns several luxury apartments. We should definitely learn about renunciation from him.

Additionally, this whole video smells like Radhanath baba’s spiritually. I expected that by the end of the movie, main character goes to Radhanath baba’s eco village and raises his butt in the air with young yoginis.

This video is so spiritually sharp, that I couldn’t cut halava with it, what to speak of someones false ego. Prabhupada’s preaching was strong and courageous, and now it is replaced by this retardation:

12:42: “According to the local people, Krishna is God, and Radhanani is his girlfriend.” Really? I thought Krishna is God everywhere, I though Krishna is absolute truth, not some local God. Srila Prabhupada never mentioned Radharani to newcomers. We start preaching with the fact that we are not this body, and that our eternal identity is that we are servant of Krishna.

16:36 – He compares relationship of Krishna and Radharani with relationship of main character of the movie and his girlfriend. This is improper, author of the movie failed to mention that love of Krishna and Radharani is nothing like our “love” in the material world, which is nothing else than lust.

17:30 – Celebration of Holi festival is something Prabhupada never encouraged within ISKCON. Just sayin’

20:16 – BB Govinda speaks about many of his “friends” who are giving shelter to cows and opening schools, but he never mentions A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, who is our most well-wishing friend. I wonder why is that? I don’t know why, but it makes me sad.

30:44 – “But I really think that we all understand, that the most important thing in life is having relationships.” And then he calls his ex girlfriend. 😀 😀 😀 How about most important thing being finding the absolute truth? Most important thing, according to Prabhupada is reviving our lost relationship with Krishna, which is based pure devotional service. Most important thing is getting out of the clutches of material energy, which is represented by opposite sex. But BB Goswami is preaching quite the opposite. The most important thing is to make peace with your ex girlfriend. That is preaching done by a sannyasi. I don’t know if I should laugh or should I cry.

CONCLUSION: BB Goswami sampradaya lost a lot of Prabhupada’s original splendour. He became proponent of “weep about your girlfriend” philosophy while living in two luxury apartments. If you are going to accept spiritual master, make sure you select somebody who fully and genuinely transmits Prabhupada’s original teachings. And that someone is obviously not BB Goswami.
