Prabhupada left us with only nine forms of devotional service as is defined in the sastras:
śravaṇaṁ kīrtanaṁ viṣṇoḥ
arcanaṁ vandanaṁ dāsyaṁ
My God, did you see what happened few days ago?
Henry Doktorski recorded an interview. What a heck … Did he ask permission from the GBC? How can people just talk? I don’t understand.
You can’t just talk with people, record this conversation and then publish that on youtube. This is not ok. We don’t support free speech.
Why do we have secular states in western Europe and America and pretty much throughout the whole world?
Well, it’s because many societies already tried to have religious organisation deeply embedded in the state. And when the church and the state were merged together, well, the church became little playful, they were burning people, and torturing them in various ways, you know, the “Holy” inquisition.
Yesterday, one devotee from Slovakia told me that they kicked out some guy who was having sex with new girls that joined Krishna consciousness. I told him that people who had a lot of sex in Croatia become temple presidents. Our temple president in Zagreb told me personally 15 years ago, how he had sex with only 20 girls that summer, which is big decrease over previous year. And then he also had sex with some black girl while he was working in Africa, and then they divorced. And he also kicked me from temple because I quoted Prabhupada who that said divorce is not good. So, Slovakian devotee asked me what was his facebook profile, and as I went to paste his facebook profile, I found very interesting post:
UPDATE 21st May: See response by Bhaktivaibhava Swami below
Before you start reading this article, you should be careful not to make any offences. It’s not easy to understand activities of pure devotees, ok?
Already two devotees from Czech Republic and Slovakia confirmed that Bhakti Vaibhava Swami owns a brand new BMW for the purposes of performing GBC lila.
If you are member of ISKCON, it is important to never be envious. And how can you know if you are envious? If you are fault-finding, you are envious. And out of all fault-finding types, worst is fault-finding pure devotees. This is preached by “pure devotees” in ISKCON because they don’t want you to find any faults in them. Because there are no faults, if you see any faults, that is because you are envious. Other than that, all “pure devotees” in ISKCON are pure. And who decided who is pure devotee? Well, “pure devotees” from the GBC body decided who is pure.
For the last couple of years, I am often reading Prabhupada’s conversations. These conversations are special nectar for anyone who has a taste for Prabhupada’s teachings.
Although Prabhupada’s conversations are available online on websites such as prabhupadabooks.com, it is often hard to continue where you left off.
Devotional service toward Sri Krishna should be practiced within certain limits and according to certain rules. Lord Krishna never introduced homosexual saints in any scripture. Srila Prabhupada was following the same strategy and clearly explained that the chances of spiritual advancement for homosexuals are nil:
We have report from recent Moscow retreat by Sacinandana baba, which was held from April 24th to April 28th.
Devotee who was present confirmed that Sacinandana baba’s girlfriend Bhanu Nandini was also there. If you have any friends in Moscow, someone who could send me photos of Bhanu Nandini on this retreat, This would be much appreciated by Prabhupada since he never wanted sannyasis who travel around the world with their unmarried personal assistants.
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
6 months ago, I published detailed analysis how an ISKCON sannyasi travels on three continents with young unmarried female russian translator.
In that same article, we even obtained reply by Indradyumna Swami, where he says it is ok that she travels with him, because she is only “russian translator, nothing more, nothing less”.
This actually establishes important shift in Prabhupada’s mission. Now, sannyasis can have transcendental, service related relationships with women. This is the essence of sahajiya philosophy, than a man can step beyond the level of renunciation, and although he already renounced association of opposite sex, he is now renouncing the renunciation itself.
Prabhupāda: Yes. When you say, “O my Lord, You have no leg, You have no hand, You have no eyes,” that means, “You are blind, You are lame, You are headless,” (laughter) “You have no sense”-“You are nonsense.” So this is prayer. This is their prayer. So we have to fight vigorously with these rascal impersonalists and voidists. When I was talking, somebody left the meeting in the morning. Yes. That means he could not tolerate (laughs) all these designations-rascal, miscreants, lowest of the mankind. Yes. (Room conversation, Surat, Dec 12st, 1970)
Some devotees are organising programs which portray Prabhupada as a clown, and his movement as a cheap new age community of brainless people. I am not worried about that, I am worried that nobody is protesting. Everybody is silent, so called leaders are silent, majority of so called lion gurus are as silent as a harmless puppies.
Yesterday, video was published by Russian devotees where they recorded some questions about gays. You can see full video here: https://vk.com/wall-140997746_661?w=wall436020197_1759
Today, we saw a disturbing article on facebook, where Indian guru and sannyasi performed initiations in San Diego without bringing his wife Kunti dasi who is faithfully serving him for many years. And the only reason he didn’t bring his wife to initiation ceremony, is too keep his manly image as a sannyasi and big renunciant. I must say this is not ok.
This is the facebook post announcing inititation ceremony.
