Raghu Raja’s wild dreamsHanuman das
Few days ago, I was notified about yet another encounter between Prabhupada’s followers and Radhanath baba’s followers. Radhanath baba followers were publishing their usual yoga nonsense:
Then all of the sudden, appeared somebody who was intelligent enough to recognize that this nonsense has nothing to do with Krishna consciousness:
After clear Prabhupada quote that hatha-yoga is hindrance, fake disciple of fake guru says “is is not part of some hatha-yoga”. Then he starts claiming that asanas which he is doing are only to “keep their body fit” to serve Lord Krishna. However, he fails to mention that Lord Krishna is served according to instructions of founder acarya Srila Prabhupada, not according to his own whims
Yoga exercises to be fit for serving Krishna
Unfortunately, Srila Prabhupada was against his disciples performing asana, and he said it directly:
So if we infect the Māyāvādī quality, karmī quality, jñānī quality, yogī quality… I see some of the students, still they practice some yoga āsana. That quality is not yet… He’s not yet free. But this is nonsense. This is nonsense. We should, by promise, we should not associate with any of their qualities. That is… Asat-saṅga-tyāga-ei vaiṣṇava-ācāra, asat-eka strī-saṅgī kṛṣṇābhakta āra [Cc. Madhya 22.87]. Asat. Asat means bad element, bad association. So asat-saṅga. We have to give up asat. “So who is asat, Sir?” Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s speaking = asat-saṅga-tyāga ei vaiṣṇava-ācāra. Vaiṣṇava’s behavior, Vaiṣṇava’s character should be simply to give up the company of the asat….. (Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture, June 26, 1973, Māyāpur)
Prabhupada was elderly man, can you find even one photo of Prabhupada where he practices yoga gymnastics to improve his health so that he could serve Krishna? I dare you to find one photo of Prabhupada where he is practicing asanas.
I find you to find one letter where Prabhupada instructs his disciples to practice asanas for health, on the contrary, we find that Srila Prabhupada was very much against yoga.
Radhanath Swami clone didn’t post only one photo of himself doing asanas, he posted many of them. A full time monk doing asanas will make people conclude that fitness yoga is somehow connected with spirituality:
Nowadays there are so many yoga schools to encourage people in developing their lusty desires and greed through the practice of yoga. People are therefore very much fond of so-called yoga practice. The actual practice of yoga, however, is described here. As authoritatively stated in the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (12.13.1), dhyānāvasthita-tad-gatena manasā paśyanti yaṁ yoginaḥ: a yogī is one who always meditates on the lotus feet of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. (SB 8.3.27p)
Prabhupada: Thousands. So we take advantage of this meeting. We do our business and go away. And they have no books. They have simply that pressing of nose, that’s all, nothing else. They have no philosophy, nothing of the sort. What they will write? They have no philosophy. Simply cheat that “Press your nose; you get Bhagavan.” That’s all. And people think, “It is so easy. Why shall I go to Bhaktivedanta Swami? Let me go to this Guru Maharaja.” They think like that. And some of our men, feeling too much pressure, they go away. But here there is nothing cheap, that simply by pressing nose and eyes and you become God. Don’t make compromise. This principle must be observed. Then you’ll remain strong. As soon as you make compromise, then it is finished. Drdha-vratah. Find out this verse. Drdha-vratah. What is that? Bhajante mam drdha-vratah. Namasyantas ca mam…
Caru: Bhajante mam drdha-vratah.
Prabhupada: Ah, ah. That drdha-vratah must be there, strong determination. Then it will go on. The scientists will come to learn and the psychiatrists will come to learn if you keep drdha-vratah. And as soon as you make compromise, then nobody will care for.” (Room Conversation with Devotees — July 2, 1974, Melbourne)
“A thirtyish, unmarried, Indian gentleman finishing up his engineering Ph.D., has come [to Portland] with the devotees from Seattle and asks for a meeting with His Divine Grace. Once facing our spiritual master, the man explains that he has seen some of Srila Prabhupada’s disciples dozing off during their chanting of japa in the morning. “I can teach them some pranayama yoga practice which will help them stay awake,” he offers. Srila Prabhupada politely declines maintaining that it is unnecessary. The man insists, “Oh no, they really need to learn the breathing exercises and the sitting postures. This will help them to stay awake when they’re chanting.” Once again Srila Prabhupada rejects the proposal. Then for the third time the man makes his demands and this time Srila Prabhupada strongly concludes the discussion, ‘No, even though they are deficient, they [his disciples who are practicing bhakti-yoga] are still better than anyone else! There is no need for any additional yoga practice.’” (An excerpt from Chapter 6 of the book “His Divine Grace,” authored by Danavir Goswami)
Become a frog
I give my full blessings to Radhanath baba and his retarded clones that they become frogs in their next life. This is proper punishment for trying to destroy Prabhupada’s movement by converting it to gymnastic yoga society where young yoginis raise they butt in the air.
Raghu Raj claims that he is doing yoga only so that he could “serve Krishna”. But in the next photo, we can see that he is not only doing exercises, he is already preaching retarded mayavadi philosophy like his guru:
All of this retarded nonsense makes me extremely angry, and when I get angry, I record videos as a therapy.
