The fear is permeating Chowpatty Gestapo fortress

The fear is permeating Chowpatty Gestapo fortress

Here is an interesting exchange of emails between a devotee from Mumbai and myself.

Emails are changed to hide the name of the sender, the year he joined ISKCON and some other info had to be censored to protect his identity. When we deleted a part of an email, we put “<CENSORED>” mark instead of the deleted text.

Hare Krishna Hanuman pr,


I have been visiting your website for almost a year now. I really appreciate all your hard work and time in bringing out the truth to the whole world.

Initially I thought you were a blasmphemy person but something in my heart kept telling me that what you speak truth on your website. I joined ISKCON IN <CENSORED> and I live in Mumbai. Like many of us initiation was forced down my throat emotionally and I had to take initiation from Radhanath swami(which I regret now) due to pressure from that stupid counselling system of ISKCON chowpatty.

You have no idea what a God figure status Radhanath swami has. I have been going to ISKCON chowpatty for many years. I can surely tell you that a very artifical environment exists in the chowpatty temple of humility, tolerance. It’s all rubbish and I feel suffocated to go now. Devotees act so artifical. All of them act like pure devotees but none of them are. It really sucks going to ISKCON chowpatty.

I recently read the book ‘Killing for krishna’ by Henry Doktorski and I am shocked to the core and I have started disliking ISKCON and its devotees. I have last interest in Krishna consciousness and don’t like to go to these ISKCON temples any more. Everything looks like a big drama to me.

I really regret my decision of taking initiation from RNS and I want to get out of this nonsense of ISKCON society. I cannot talk to anybody in ISKCON. I will be kicked out, ridiculed and thrown out of ISKCON if I raise any questions of doubt.

I need your guidance where to head from here as I see no hope in todays ISKCON society. Please help me_/\_. I am despearate to see and understand actual process of Krishna Consciousness.

Please don’t publish or share this email with anybody _/\_.

Thank you for your time.

Hare Krishna <CENSORED>,

please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Your letter is very important since it shows that Radhanath Swami’s empire is cracking at its core. Therefore I would like to publish it, without your name and we can change the year that you arrived in Krishna consciousness.

You are an individual spirit soul. You have your natural right to express your opinion, at least anonymously. Your letter is very important to publish because it will open the way for many others to follow in. I already know a few disillusioned Radhanath Swami disciples, believe me, you are not the only one.

It took you <CENSORED> years to understand Radhanath baba’s cheating, it took me even longer than. I was a member of ISKCON from 1994 up to 2016, which is 22 years. One day, I was kicked out just because I protested against Ramesh baba followers coming to Croatia. Ramesh baba was originally introduced as a saint within ISKCON by Radhanath Swami. Therefore, my life mission is to expose fake guru Radhanath Swami. Not only that he participated in the murder of Sulocana, but he also destroyed the very soul of Srila Prabhupada’s legacy with cheap, shallow spirituality which smells like mayavada.

I also could have remained silent and just share my realization with a few selected friends. That is exactly what ISKCON Gestapo gurus expect you to do. Once you figure them out, you are expected to silently disappear.

Come on, be a man, show some muscle. By allowing me to publish your letter, you will show that misguiding disciples for <CENSORED> years are not free. Payback time. When good people do nothing, evil prevails.

No matter what your decision is, it is important to always remain connected with Srila Prabhupada by reading his books, listening to his conversations, chanting Hare Krishna, and practice original beautiful Krishna consciousness without all the ISKCON Gestapo nonsense. Hopefully, Krishna will send you similarly minded people so you can form some kind of resistance movement.

your servant, Hanuman das

The thinking phase

After this email, I went to sleep, hoping that this brave soul will muster the strength to go publicly express his realizations. Next morning, I find 3 emails in my inbox:

Hare Krishna pr,

Please do not publish my name or my conversation with you, <CENSORED>. It is no use talking to anybody in my community as I will be kicked out and <CENSORED>. Things in India work differently. Indians don’t have an open mind to hold this kind of conversation.

I hope you understand.

Pranams, <CENSORED>

This guy is scared, genuinely scared. His 4 emails fully reflect the horror of living within Radhanath baba’s Gestapo fortress. This exchange actually makes it easy for me to understand the article I published sent recently, where some other guy had to apologize for protesting that his wife was stolen by a senior preacher.

These emails perfectly describe how hard it is to escape from ISKCON’s mental jail.

Especially, interesting is the first email where devotee explains: Initially I thought you were a blasphemy person but something in my heart kept telling me that what you speak the truth on your website.

This is the most important sentence. In ISKCON, unfortunately, there is not much regard if the information given on my website is true or not. ISKCON members have a brain that functions differently. From the very first day in the movement, ISKCON members are trained to think only in the terms of what is offensive, and what is not offensive. Therefore, after about 3-6 months, their thought process is completely altered, and they can not think in a rational way.

For example, if you give some rational person information that exposes the misbehavior of their guru, a rational person will try to analyze the evidence. If evidence is not convincing, a rational person will attack you for spreading misinformation and will try to rationally defeat your article.

However, ISKCON’s lobotomized members don’t think like that, they are only capable of recognizing information as “offensive” and disregarding it. They neither able to defend their guru or authority, neither they are able to hold a debate.

However, is somebody is sincere, then, there is a Paramatma factor, therefore he said: “something in my heart kept telling me that what you speak the truth“. That “something” is Paramatma, the Supersoul.

Initially, this movement was envisioned by Srila Prabhupada to be a movement that presents the Absolute Truth. However, petty Gestapo gurus and their minions turned this movement into an organization of blind followers who are utterly unable to face the truth. And they are also unable to debate the truth. Thus, their brains remain underdeveloped, following in the footsteps of Sai baba followers and other groups who support blind belief in the “authorities” without any connection with reality and the actual Absolute Truth.
