How to survive Hanuman’s email attack

How to survive Hanuman’s email attack

Psychological warfare, interrogations and investigations can be tricky. Now, we will give an example how to die a quick death after receiving my letter, and we will give another example how to survive.

I always compose my letters in a way to you look guilty as hell if you don’t reply. So, staying silent is not really an option.

Let’s start with Sacinandana Swami, I already wrote him more than 10 letters, he never replied, so let’s switch to his secretary, whoever that might be.

From: Hanuman das SDHS
To: Sacinandana Swami <>

Dear secretary of Sacinandana Swami,

please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I know for sure that Sacinandana Swami doesn’t know how to use email, so his email is always handled by somebody else.

So, dear Jaya Krishna prabhu, you were supposed to take up service of Sacinandana Swami’s secretary, please let me know if you are the one who received this letter. I hope Prahladananda Swami was not lying regarding this. All my current information point in the direction that he did lie. So, there is ugly video made by me, who is dropping serious shadow of doubt on Sacinandana Swami, if you reply to me that you are really his secretary, this can eliminate the torture that Sacinandana Swami is going through.

However, since Prahladananda Swami lied to me on several occasions, I no longer know who to trust. If Bhanu Nandini is no longer living 5 minutes away from Sacinandana Swami, please give me location where she moved. I need two witnesses, one should be disciple of some other guru. Is Bhanu Nandini still seeing Sacinandana Swami on daily basics?

Dear Bhanu Nandini, if you are still together with Sacinandana prabhu, I would like to say that you are quite a good couple. You don’t have to reply to my email, I know it’s too painful. I am also living for 10 years with a wonderful devotee of Krishna, and we have nice kid, and of course I don’t want to be separated from my wife. Therefore, I would suggest that you marry Sacinandana prabhu to solidify your relationship. There is significant age difference, but I think you could have children.

If you don’t solidify your relationship, there is big risk of Sacinandana Swami finding another young and more beautiful secretary. But, if you are wife and you have kids, then he can’t just replace you easily.

Even if he stays sannyasi, do you really want to be secret girlfriend? What kind of life is that? Always living in fear that some rival, disappointed, future secretary could make photo of you and Sacinandana Swami. And yes, this photo could end up in my possession and then it’s game over.

your servant,
Hanuman das

The survival guide

Now comes the most interesting example, exposing fake swamis and gurus is very valuable service for society of devotees, but it comes with a great danger. If you expose genuine follower of Prabhupada as a cheater, this is very dangerous. Then you become affected with vaisnava aparadha. Therefore, if I am not absolutely sure that I am right, I will rather withdraw myself from the fight than attack innocent person.

So, aparadhas are real, but they are also used to excuse in attempt to establish ISKCON as North Korea society and eliminate fight against fake Ramesh gurus who have secretaries. Fortunately, this maharaj was not one of those fake gurus.

Since this was a target miss, I will replace all names with letters to protect identity of this sannyasi.

First letter

In this first letter, I don’t reveal evidence I have, I just want to see response, and if it matches the information I got from my spy network.

Subject: secretary issue
From: Hanuman das

Dear X,

please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

My name is Hanuman das, I am independent private investigator specializing in sannyasis with secretaries. I run a website on which hundreds of devotees every month get help in selecting their spiritual master. Selecting proper guru is one of most important decisions one makes in his spiritual life, I think you would agree.

Few days ago, I got information that you have female secretary which acts your cook and personal assistant. Is this true? Please give names of your assistants who communicate with you on daily basics, and who are doing secretarial service. Also, I need list of cooks who are cooking for you in your home base. Please include their emails and phone numbers, and indicate if they speak English, I would like to have a word with them over phone.

Life of a sannyasi is like an open book, no private life, so I hope you don’t mind.

I operate in following way:

If I don’t get reply from you, I am assuming that accusations are true, and I will publish the evidence I have on my website.

If you deny the allegations, I will make further investigation into the issue and publish my results. You really don’t want to lie to me, some sannyasis did lie to me, and it didn’t end up well. Having secretary is one thing, but lying about it is whole another ballgame.

If you admit that you have secretary, I want to point out that currently there is no GBC resolution which would prevent you from having secretary, but you will end up in the red category on my purified guru list.

No matter if you currently have secretary or not, I would like to share inspiring quote what Srila Prabhupada says about sannyasi secretaries, he calls them “bad habit”:

In the name of religion you do all nonsense rascaldom, and if the leader approves, “Yes, you can do.” Vivekananda did it. Vivekananda did it. “Yes, there is no difference between eating meat and not meating eat in terms of religious system.” He preached this, and all the sannyāsīs of Ramakrishna Mission, they eat meat, they drink, they have WOMAN SECRETARY, and everything. This Chinmayananda also like that. I know his whole history. Unless one is purely Kṛṣṇa conscious, one cannot give up ALL THESE BAD HABITS. This is the test. (Morning walk — April 24, 1974, Hyderabad)

your servant,
Hanuman das

Second letter – Swami responds

Swami responds, but not to me directly, he uses ISKCON’s line of authorities. Nevertheless, he is not hiding anything and offering to adjust himself even without being asked. What a difference compared to Sacinandana prabhu, who is silently confirming all allegations.

X-Mailer: COM 3.89.6

Dear Prahladananda Swami,

please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Please see the email attached to this message, that I have received from
a certain Hanuman.SDHS. I have never heard of this man. Since he seems
to live in Zagreb, which belongs to your GBC zone, could you enlighten
me about his position in ISKCON?

Is he related to the sannyasa ministry and maybe commissioned by you to
investigate sannyasis? If so, I am surprised to find out about it this way.

He writes:

> I got information that you have female secretary which acts
your cook and personal assistant. Is this true?

My reply:
I don’t have a secretary, neither female n or male.
I have a disciple in A, where presently my base
is, where this disciple, B, sometimes cooks for me. I say
sometimes, because it’s not every day. I generally follow a raw diet of
fruits and take a hot meal 2 or 3 times a week. And often, I cook myself.
She is not my personal assistance. She is not my secretary, as defined
in the Ethymology Dictionary:

secretary (n.)

late 14c., “person entrusted with secrets,” from Medieval Latin
secretarius “clerk, notary, confidential officer, confidant,” a
title applied to various confidential officers, noun use of
adjective meaning “private, secret, pertaining to private or secret
matters” (compare Latin secretarium “a council-chamber, conclave,
consistory”), from Latin secretum “a secret, a hidden thing” (see
Meaning “person who keeps records, write letters, etc.,” originally
for a king, first recorded c. 1400.

B has nothing to do with my correspondence, appointments,
travel arrangements, itineraries etc. or any other type of secretary work.
She takes care of the laundry twice a week and brings in the morning a
fruit/vegetable juice. Other than that we have no personal dealings.

Now, since this email is mainly addressed to Prahladananda Swami who is
my immediate authority, being my sannyasa-guru and the head of the
sannyasa ministry, I ask him to let me know if it is improper to accept
the above-mentioned services from a female disciple. If he tells me
“yes”, I will immediately ask B to discontinue her services.

Hope this meets you well,
Your servant,

Third letter – second wave

I can’t get info I need unless I establish myself independently from so called sannyasi minister. If you been reading articles on my website, then you know that pink pyjamas are more useful Syrian conflict than Prahladananda Swami is as useful in finding fake sannyasis.

From: Hanuman das
To: X

Dear X,

please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am not affiliated with Prahladananda Swami, nor I am affiliated with sannyasi ministry, as I clearly mentioned in my letter by term “independent, private investigator”. To be even more precise, Prahladananda Swami doesn’t control me in any way. So independent, as if Merriam Webster dictionary:

a (1) : not subject to control by others : self-governing (2) : not affiliated with a larger controlling unit <an independent bookstore>
b (1) : not requiring or relying on something else : not contingent <an independent conclusion> (2) : not looking to others for one’s opinions or for guidance in conduct (3) : not bound by or committed to a political party

I am attaching photograph of you and your alleged secretary. However, I see a lot of discrepancies. First of all, we have a name mismatch, alleged secretary name is C Devi dasi, and she is obviously not a secretary. If the individual who reported this case couldn’t even get the name right, I am very doubtful that anything else is correct.

So, accusation is that this C devi dasi, on the photo to the right of you, is your personal secretary and cook, and that you forbade her to stay with her boyfriend, and that she listened to you because she is your disciple.

Is C devi dasi your disciple? Does she live on the same place where your base is located?

Additionally, Individual who reported the case is not known to me, and it is not known in ISKCON, so, if I get two conflicting version of the story, I tend to take your version more seriously.

your servant,
Hanuman das

Fourth letter – Clarification

Date: Thu, 16 Feb 2017 08:33 +0530
From: X
To: "Hanuman (das) SDHS (Zagreb - HR)" <>
Subject: Re: secretary issue

Thank you for clarifying things.

Sorry, for having insinuated any connection to Prahladananda Swami. I saw Zagreb and connected the dots so to speak. No offense intended.

Yes, C devi dasi is also my disciple, but neither she nor anyone else is my secretary, or has been my secretary.

I don’t need a secretary, at least not now, and if I ever need one I will make sure it is not a female. In my opinion, it is not a good idea for a sannyasi to have a female secretary, although circumstances should be taken into consideration. But this is another topic.

So, C devi dasi is not my secretary, neither has she ever cooked for me. She sometimes helps in the Deity kitchen (only first initiation) and as far as I know she doesn’t know how to cook.

As far as her “boyfriend” go, I advised her not to stay with her boyfriend who was 25 years younger than her, but she ignored my request. They stayed together for 4 months which was very disappointing to me. At any rate, she is definitely not my secretary, nor cook, not even taking care of the laundry. She is working in D, leaving very early, around 6 am, coming back in the evening around 19h. I hardly see her or talk to her.

Myself, I come and go to the E and don’t stay there longer than a week or two. Most of the time I am travelling and preaching.
I hope this information, which you can verify with F, who is the president of G, will alleviate your concerns.

Fifth letter – Apology

I will never apologize to Ramesh sannyasi with a girlfriend, I will never apologize to lying diksa guru Prahladananda Swami, but I have no problem in apologizing to genuine Prabhupada follower.
