The philosophy of “unity in stupidity”Hanuman das
Main point of ISKCON’s “unity in stupidity” philosophy is that you should never, I mean absolutely never, criticise guru-list gurus. As you can see in the above photo, Dhira Nitai, disciple of Bhakti Tirtha Swami, in this facebook post is wondering how it is possible that Bhakti Vikasa Swami’s disciples broke the first rule of “unity in stupidity” philosophy. They dared to disagree with Bhakti Tirtha Swami’s philosophy in the following article:
Ok, first of all, Manikar das, who is the author of the above article is not disciple of Bhakti Vikasa Swami.
Second point, it is interesting to notice that Dhira Nitai didn’t attempt to defeat points from the article, which was his duty as a disciple of Bhakti Tirtha Swami. Rather, he is wondering how it is possible that people dare to say something against his guru. At no point in his complaint did he discuss the question if the above article is philosophically correct or not. This is typical symptom of a blind believer. Blind believer expects that everybody else should be blind believer like him and he is utterly confused when he sees a digression from that pattern.
Additional problem is that Bhakti Vikasa Swami is a genuine guru, which means that he values the truth above anything else and is willing to fight people who are trying to convert Srila Prabhupada’s legacy into a circus. Therefore, Bhakti Vikasa Swami wrote the following letter in 2004:
Most awesome email ever written
FROM: Bhakti Vikas swami (PAMHO.NET) posted December 20, 2004.
Dear Bhakti Tirtha swami, Please accept my obesiances.
I am very sorry for criticizing your book “Spirital Warrior I.” Who am I to dispute that the world’s biggest leaders are engaged in human sacrifices to the Devil? They probably are. We all know this is why George Bush gives Vladamir Putin that special “Texas hot sauce” when they meet. And who am I to say that we humans were not placed on earth by alien spaceships on the continent Mu, before it sank into the Atlantic ocean, and it is now known as Atlantis. And our ancestors escaped by floating off on giant leaves, to England? And we are a colony of space alien’s experiments? This all seems quite possible. And who am I to say that the leaders of the Trilateral commission are not really other aliens from the lower planets? Maybe they are. And who am I to say that you are not really an African prince from Motubu? Maybe you are.
And who am I to disagree with you that when the next asteroid passes earth, named Zectoid five, is not really a space ship which going to gather up the faithful citizens of planet Earth? And this will give the faithful Zectoid-ites special space-capable bodies so they can float off to Jupiter and meet Glankon one, the leader of the interplanetary space commission. And this leaves the rest of us earth citizens behind to fight an invasion of “Waroc,” the mechanically aided insect – like aliens from the next asteroid, named “Tweeble 1006”? This is all probably going to occur. Why should we GBC ever doubt your holy predictions, which you conducted using the special kwabble tree from the African garden planetarium in Washington DC? Sorry, I have to run off now, going to the store to get my “Waroc” language decoder ring as we speak! Just in case the invasion starts soon, I need to be able to say, “Hold your fire, master Waroc insect race, I am not an employee of ‘Bug Hitters.’ I will be your house cleaner servant.” Thanks for warning us!
Your servant, soon to be Waroc interstellar space commander number seven, Bhakti Vikas Swami.
Main intellectual architects of the “unity in stupidity” philosophy are the members of the GBC body. They were giving support to Bhakti Tirtha Swami and were trying to shut up Bhakti Vikasa Swami, because telling the truth is real disturbance for the GBC body.
Only genuine disciples of Srila Prabhupada fight nonsense, Bhakti Vikasa Swami, Danavir das Goswami, Badrinarayan Swami, Sankarshana das, to name a few. Everybody else is willing to be a silent, sweet puppy of the GBC body who will always smile and never confront nonsense. Only problem is that harmless, sweet, spineless entity can never be a guru. Guru is like a lion who tears deviations apart. Guru is not some formless priest with administrative guru licence who signed “guru form” in which he promises “never to criticize” anybody in ISKCON. That is GBC body’s vision of a guru, and therefore they require all gurus to sign such a form. So, they couldn’t expose fake gurus like Bhakti Tirtha Swami – UFO guru, like Sacinandana Swami – sannyasi with a girlfriend, like Hridayananda das Goswami – ping pong acarya gay supporter who thinks we will conquer the world if we start wearing shorts, and so many others.
