Remember the outrage when first Hridayananda das Goswami became member of the GBC body and GBC for Brazil, as concluded in the mid-term GBC meeting?
Well, it seems things started improving since he took reins of Brazil after being empowered by the GBC body in October last year. Here, we see that he is setting up preaching in a proper way according to standard of chastity and shyness and prescribed by Prabhupada. In this article, we analyze newest facebook post by his disciple Giridhari das, who manages ISKCON center called “Pandava paradise”:
Introduction by Hanuman das
Another article by my friend from Brazil, well researched, it goes to show that Brazil is testing grounds for preaching divorce, also known in Srila Prabhupada’s books as cat and dog level.
Prabhupada: Whatever Kṛṣṇa has kindly sent, let me be satisfied with this. They do not want more than that. Similarly, “Kṛṣṇa has sent me this woman as my wife, oh, let me be satisfied with that.” That is Kṛṣṇa consciousness, that He’s pleased to send me such foodstuff, He’s pleased to send me such wife, He’s pleased to give me strength for so much defense.” So the whole question is solved there. But because we have got high intelligence, we are going to surpass the intelligence of Kṛṣṇa. “Oh, Kṛṣṇa has given me this wife? Why not search out another nice wife?” That means I am going to surpass the intelligence of Kṛṣṇa. “Oh, Kṛṣṇa has sent this prasādam. Oh, this is all vegetables. Why not take some animal food and liquor?” Kṛṣṇa does not send you liquor. You have manufactured. Kṛṣṇa has sent you this fruit, He has sent you the grains, Kṛṣṇa has sent you the milk. You should be satisfied. (Morning Walk at Stow Lake — March 27, 1968, San Francisco)
I can understand that divorce because they can’t follow the proper standard, but to preach cat and dog level is whole another level of rascaldom.
APPRECIATION: Initial lead on this post was done by a devotee from Brazil, who is fed up this nonsense and willing to risk to fight nonsense. One of unsung heroes.
This post Many people may wonder why I write so much about sannyasi secretaries, and often their argument is that “sannyasi is doing a lot of service”, so having a girlfriend is not a problem.
This article is written by one of ISKCON devotees in Brazil, who has to watch all the nonsense happening in his country. Of course, according to ISKCON’s “Silent sheep non offender” theory, he was supposed to stay quiet about all the nonsense happening there, but he couldn’t.
Brazil is under direct supervision of the GBC Executive committee consisting of:
- Bhakti Caru Swami
- Madhusevita das
- Bhaktivaibhava Swami
All those people are responsible for this craziness that is happening in Brasil.
Once upon a time, great “acarya” appeared, he promised us that he will “save” ISKCON’s western mission and bring us millions of new followers, and the project Krishna West was born. He pleaded to the GBC body to allow him to test his new project and everybody will witness how powerful it is. We just need to replace dhotis with Jeans, and we need to replace sweet rice with muffins. If you are rich, you can also replace harmonium with piano, and for poorer folks, synthesizer will do. If we do that, millions will join our movement.
I am gradually losing hope that ISKCON will ever get back to right track. Worst of all, GBC Executive committee is in charge for Brazil. If they manage everything else as they are managing Brazil, we are in big trouble. Maybe only thing left to do is making jokes.
