Bhakti Caru Swami
Please accept my best wishes. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I am writing this message today to remind you of a very important principle: ISKCON is not only Srila Prabhupada's creation, it is Srila Prabhupada's body.
And you are still caring for Srila Prabhupada's body like you did when he needed professional care in his final days. You were appointed as Srila Prabhupada's "nurse" by your buddy- Tamal Krishna. Although you had no training or accreditation, you accepted the role of caring for a seriously sick person without ever questioning why Tamal Krishna chose a medical
moon-calf like you. And now you are (below) touting the role of "ultimate authority" in a synarchy, simply on the recommendation of fallen hedonists.
If Srila Prabhupada were here, we would serve his body with all our ability and all our care. Just as we would serve Srila Prabhupada's body,
You're function as Srila Prabhupada's personal "nurse", cannot provide for examination any record of "basic care" administered by you, eg. what diet plan did you chart? What was Srila Prabhupada's overall glycemic risk/long and short term complications? What was his postmeal or postprandial plasma glucose level? What was his fasting plasma glucose level? What was his (average) blood pressure mm Hg diastolic? What was his cholesterol mg/dl readings? Triglycerides (blood fats), and LDL, where detected? Was a doctor called when blood sugar levels were high? Which doctor? Were you trained re. blood fluctuations in an acute diabetic? Where were you trained? Was Srila Prabhupada's postmeal blood glucose levels (glucose spike) ever monitored? Do you have any proof? What about his fasting blood glucose level"? His glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c)? Did you know that blood sugar levels in patients with diabetes need to be carefully monitored? If not, why not? If you did, then where is the proof that this knowledge was put into practice? If you did not know these things then why did you accept the position? If you accepted this serious undertaking simply because you were "appointed" by a buddy, what makes you think your guru "appointment" is any different? We have asked you all these questions before. But you continue to pretend that the issue is irrelevant on the basis that it is being presented by "terrorists". But there are no weapons of mass destruction or jihad fighters destined to blow up ISKCON. ISKCON is not guilty of any crime- YOU are. Collective guilt does not exist in the eyes of the law. That lacuna exists only in the mental baggage of lemmings who jump without question.
....with a similar attitude, we must serve ISKCON. That is the most important consideration.
What do you mean by serve ISKCON? Does it mean that we should serve you because you are a corporate-appointed guru? Srila Prabhupada is ISKCON. He has asked that we serve him by worshipping Sri Krishna. There is no mention in his books of Bhakti Caru, or the menagerie of masquerading mahatmas to which you belong. But you (below) are using Srila Prabhupada's books to imply that you, and your self-proclaimed leadership, are the body of that work. And then, using this twisted signpost to launch a no-exit pre-emptive strike on conscientious objectors, you continue to use Srila Prabhupada's name on your rice- bowl.
We must meditate upon this principle at every moment. We must be very careful to give protection to Srila Prabhupada's body and ensure that by no means do we hurt Srila Prabhupada.
Was it your genre Shakespeare exposed when he wrote- I shall kill thee now and love thee later?
Was it not you, Tamal Krishna, Bhavananda, Jayapataka et al whom Srila Prabhupada was addressing when he said- "That is my only request, that at the last stage don't torture and put me to death" ? ("Conversations" 3/11/77.) Why would he make such a request if you were as "protective" as you hereby imply?
can Srila Prabhupada be hurt? Srila Prabhupada's body (ISKCON) can be hurt when the
society is attacked.
What you are attempting here is to create a "strategy of tension" to involve a "coalition of the compromised" in coming to your defence for your complicity in the "alleged" poisoning of His Divine Grace. This "divide and rule" strategy is not a new concept. It was used by your mentor and buddy Tamal Krishna back in the 90's when the poisoning of Srila Prabhupada first came to light. Here is a sample: Tamal Krishna- "That will be enough for our supporters, but such denials will not convince our opponents. That is to be expected. But what we really need is to convince the 'middle', the vast number of uncommitted. If we cannot convince the
'middle' then we are lost." And why did your buddy/boss believe that 'WE" (you, him, et al) would be 'lost' for an allegation you claim is "absurd"? It is quite plain that he is depending on a popularity vote to squash a murder investigation that he believes will remain non-secular, and therefore under control of those who owe him homage for destroying the position and dictates of the founder/acarya, and by dividing his wealthy international society among them. The king is dead, long live the king. Tamal Krishna: "But when the guru departs, sadhu and sastra can take on a new import, as those who succeed him (this means you, and those who he compromised by giving guru status; who did nothing to initiate an investigation into the allegations of poisoning) become the new intepreters of past precedents (this effectually deposes Srila Prabhupada and substitutes him with invested accomplices), scriptual law (changing Srila Prabhupada's books to falsify the authenticity of substitution) and the new circumstances " (excerpt:A Hare Krsna at Southern Methodist University, 297p).
And the 'new circumstances' were that Srila Prabhupada was now "dead", and his assets 'inherited' by self-appointed acaryas, who have since proved (and documented) to be fornicators, drug addicts, paedophiles, and rascals of the lowest order......so why not murderers and accomplices, in the first place?
There are so many ways one can attack ISKCON.
The symptoms of a successful attack are disempowerment and defrag of the previously existing status quo, as defined in the 'victory speech' by Tamal Krishna (above), and in the consequence of corporate ISKCON, today. However, as we know, ISKCON was not always divided. The Society remained compact and dynamic under the powerful leadership of His Divine Grace, and was only fragmented and franchised by you, et al, after his suspicious death and subsequent disempowerment. You inheritors divided his assets among yourselves, and turned his ISKCON into a BIZ.CON. So when you refer to an attack on ISKCON, what you really mean is- your fragment of BIZ.CON, which came about by a covert attack on the previous status quo: His Divine Grace, and his Society- ISKCON.
worst of all is to attack ISKCON by criticizing its leaders.
Who is attacking ISKCON? No one! ISKCON is dying from the inside out; chronically poisoned by criminal activity and draconian policies. We are attacking YOU, because you have made contradictory statements in connection with the poisoning of Srila Prabhupada. Again, we are attacking YOU, not ISKCON, which is the sacred matha of our Guru Deva.
We should be very, very careful not to criticize the leaders of ISKCON.
The leadership of ISKCON has proved itself to be a synarchy of fascists, who use compromised quislings to enforce dictatorial laws that shelter crime, criminals, and demonic insurgency.
We should not find faults in those who are in leadership positions.
No! You are wrong! What you are dictating here is that impostors and criminals are above suspicion because they are appointed by a confederacy, or are criminals only when the leadership says so. Srila Prabhupada directed the GBC to "manage" the mission, not control our sense of discrimination. We cannot think, if we think we'll fall apart. And we think, because of documented audio evidence, that you are a liar, and quite possibly (...hote pare), an accomplice in the poisoning of Srila Prabhupada.
This is a very common Vedic etiquette. It is a basic concept that a junior does not criticize a senior. In Vedic culture, one does not
criticize the father or uncle, even if he is wrong.
Truth is above all religion and so called etiquette. We must abandon all else in dedication to the truth, which is non different from the Absolute Truth. If a Father, mother, uncle or elder is detrimental to that relationship, they should be immediately abandoned in pursuit of the higher Truth. What to speak of those who claim leadership; "quackademics"; certified and endorsed by those who brought shame to the good name of Srila Prabhupada and his holy mission.
There is a reverential attitude towards them. We should have a similar attitude towards ISKCON's leaders. And just as in a family, if the uncle is doing something wrong, we do not take the matter into our own hands because we can be sure that the senior members of the family will take care of it. It will not go unnoticed, it will be taken care of.
History shows that the GBC leadership has failed miserably in doing what you claim above. Whatever initial concepts were put in place by His Divine Grace, are now secondary to the survival of ISKCON as a corporation. Your interfaced "leadership" has removed Srila Prabhupada's Direction of Management in favour of your own draconian laws. Not only are complaints thrown out but so are the complainants. You continue to prattle on with this nonsense, but refuse to answer any pertinent questions we put to you. You are such a coward that you are willing to drag ISKCON into the courts just so you wont have to stand alone and naked....or so you think. Because of this you are here, touting pacifist policies like a brahmin amongst untouchables. And because of your refusal to answer questions, the 'ultimate authority' must again be prised open to public proceedings.
Similarly, if there is wrongdoing on the part of a senior devotee, there is a structure that will take care of it. The GBC is the ultimate managing authority.
In the kingdom of the blind the one-eye rules. Sorry to remind you, but the GBC have been splashing around for twenty seven years with nothing more than a "senior devotee" certificate to keep them afloat. Yet you have the gall to write these letters. Either you have just returned from the moon, or you are the most dangerous and reprehensible type of opportunist.
The GBC is a very vigilant body. It may take time, but rest assured that the GBC will take care of anything that is wrong.
The GBC recently passed a resolution on the "poison issue" and then passed another resolution to bury it in the "unpublished minutes". This typifies the "vigilance" in taking care of "anything that is wrong". Just like the child abuse issue: nobody except the "vigilant GBC" knew that the kids were being abused, but they did nothing about it, or until the kids grew up and did something about it themselves. But nothing much has changed. Abusers still give lectures and lead kirtans under the auspices of the GBC. And
many of these criminals are YOUR disciples, whom YOU still protect and feed off.
A Vaisnava does not want to criticize anyone. For example, in Vrindavan, there was one very, very exalted Vaisnava. One day, there was a mahotsava, a festival. Many people were invited. This person noticed that one Vaisnava was not there, so he questioned what happened to him. Somebody said that he has done this and that, so we did not invite him. This very senior Vaisnava got up and started to walk to the door. When asked why he was leaving, he said, "For such a small little fault, you have rejected him, you do not know all the faults that I have. I know that if you get to know about them, you will reject me also. Before that happens, I decided to leave."
A drunkard spent the night in the gutter with pigs. A stranger passing by commented, "One who boozes is known by the company he chooses." The pigs got up and walked away. The lesson being that even pigs have a standard. If you believe that a conscientious devotee will not make a choice (sooner or later) between sadhu sanga and badam bhanga, you are more optimistic than sane.
That is the mood of a Vaisnava. He is as humble as a blade of grass.
But not as dumb as an ass, who carries the dirty laundry of others on his back, simply because the sack waves a danda and an ISKCON contract that certifies him as'"guru" or "Officer for Life".
If we want to become Vaisnavas, we should not find faults.
No. if we want to become Vaisnavas we should take shelter of Srila Prabhupada, and not of managers who translate "ultimate managing authority" to mean "brothers in crime", who persevere only in connivance of a weak prosecution.
Those who are in management, they have this thankless task of finding out all the garbage and trying to rectify. We should leave it to them.
Rank and file devotees never make the news. It is you god-men,
and your quislings, that are the center of media focus. It is a well documented fact
that the "ultimate authority" in ISKCON were/are (and yet to be exposed)
fornicators and perverts. This is well recorded. If the rampant rumours about
Jayapataka and his secretary are true, then the "eleven acaryas" (appointed by
Tamal, and then denied by him) have proved beyond doubt that they were never
"appointed gurus" by His Divine Grace. We cannot see Srila
Prabhupada making one mistake, whereas the self-appointed "ultimate authority" in ISKCON are asking us to believe that he made eleven.
Materialistic people are gossip mongers. They say, "He did this, he did that." All their joy is derived from speaking badly about others.
So what you are implying here is that your part in the poisoning of Srila Prabhupada should be forgotten on the grounds that truth-seekers are really gossip-mongers. How often has the GBC used this line of deflection? Anyway, now that we have your "divine perspective" on this matter, we will need to close down the judicial system, law enforcement and media, and prepare for the GBC to lead us into a New Dark Age. God help us.
When we speak badly about someone, we are actually taking his bad karma. Before speaking ill of someone, be aware of that fact. You are actually ridding him of his bad karma and accepting it yourself. You are causing great injury to your own spiritual life. Mahaprabhu told Raghunath dasa Goswami not to indulge in mundane discussion. Mundane discussion means speaking badly about others, backbiting. This fault-finding and backbiting causes the heart to shrink, whereas, Krishna Consciousness is the process
that expands the heart.
This is a fundamental shift in spiritual geometry. By corkscrewing a basic Vaisnava dictum, you are bolstering an endless series of Hitler modelled laws which promote the "final solution" to GBC culpability. But devotees have grown up in awareness, and are not as gullible as they were previously. The GBC can no longer impose yesterday's ideas on today's market and expect to be in business tomorrow. ISKCON's brain-drain epidemic is rooted in this misconception.
A Vaisnava derives joy by glorifying devotees. Devotees are the reservoir of good qualities. If out of hundreds of good qualities, someone displays one bad quality, it should not be magnified. Make it a point to create a very nice atmosphere by glorifying others. That is what Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu wanted.
Vaisnava are glorious by their deeds. You are a suspect in the murder of our Acarya, and have continued to avoid questions on the subject even though your audio statement in 1977 and your statement in 2000 have startling contradictions. How can we glorify you, or those who sodomise secretaries, fornicate with disciples, therapists, and abuse children?
Desiring no respect, glorification, adoration for ourselves, we should offer all respect, glorification and adoration to the Vaisnavas: "See how wonderfully he is rendering his service. He has offered himself to Srila Prabhupada." That is how we should see every Vaisnava, what to speak of avery senior devotee.
The very fact that you keep pushing the "senior devotees" nonsense, while simultaneously talking of humility, tells us that your motives are over tactics not principles. Also, you may or may not remember this, but at your "Vyasa Puja" you became very angry with "your disciples" when your rose-petal-foot-bath was cold. Don't give us any more jive about humility when your entire letter demands genuflection to a group in which you are a principal beneficiary.
Then, a very nice atmosphere will be created. Vaisnavas are like swans. They live in a very clean lake.
Currently, ISKCON is a cesspit of intrigue; back-stabbing peverts, and fornicators. The worst revelations are yet to come.
The crows live wherever there is garbage. This becomes very obvious in Calcutta in the morning. When we were in Calcutta, I
used to chant on the rooftop sometimes. I would see that there are crows and there are pigeons. The pigeons would fly to the rooftops. People would throw grains and the pigeons would take the grains, but no crows would come. They would just gravitate towards the garbage.
It is very appropriate that you identify with pigeons, because they have sex seventy times a day and pass corrosive stool everywhere. Crows clean up the garbage in the city, and are even protected by law. May we suggest that the "ultimate authority" give up the swan image, and adopt the pigeon as a logo, instead.
Let us keep our ISKCON clean and create a very wonderful atmosphere. It is natural human behaviour that if someone does something wrong and we become very heavy and criticize the person, he will leave bitterly. However, if we deal with him compassionately, but at the same time, address the mistake, he will recognize it and better himself.
So now we understand why known paedophiles/abusers are roaming freely in ISKCON, and even giving Bhagavatam classes. This is how you remain insulated from exposure: the society is packed with back-scratching-henchmen; pigeons of a feather....
We must try to create such a nice atmosphere in ISKCON that everyone will glorify Srila Prabhupada. Our behaviour reflects on
More than twenty-five thousand devotees have been jettisoned from ISKCON, and here you are still sprinkling fairy-dust. Don't tell us about how our behaviour reflects on Srila Prabhupada, tell your ultimate authority about it. Their behaviour has caused irreparable damage to Srila Prabhupada's mission. But then, if you did, you would be in disharmony with the Reich, and be forced to face your ghosts alone.
When I joined ISKCON, I had to sign a form. One of the points was that I should never act in a way that will disgrace Srila Prabhupada. That was so striking to me. It sank deep in my heart. I made it a point that I would never act in a way that would disgrace Srila Prabhupada.
You secretly financed the book- "Not That I am Poisoned", which was published without any mention of your name in the credits. It was a deceptive act, because, according to you, you are a suspect in the poisoning of Srila Prabhupada (However, I don't think I should be the one to head up the inquiry, because I am one of the suspects. 3/10/'03). This is only one example of your deception. There is more in our book- Judge For Yourself, available for FREE on our web site.
If you act in an illustrious way, people will say, "He is such a wonderful person because he has accepted the teachings of Bhaktivedanta Swami." This is the best way to glorify Srila Prabhupada. On the other hand, if we act in an inappropriate way, people will say, "The Hare Krishnas are like this, and the head of the Hare Krishnas is like this." We should be very, very careful to act in a way that will not bring disgrace to Srila Prabhupada. Our behavior should glorify Srila Prabhupada.
Such basic values are instilled in most families. Your instructions address those who are fatherless. As we have pointed out to you: it is the GBC and their cronies who have brought disgrace to the mission, and in spite of signing forms not to do so. Our spiritual father, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder AND Acarya of ISKCON, instructs us beyond these basic prerequisites. Ergo your attempt to advise in loco parentis, is viewed by us as an extension of your scheming artifices.
Please take this message very seriously. Help each other in progressing in spiritual life. Become exemplary. Mold your life according to the instructions of Srila Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada has given us the perfect process. Now mold yourself according to that and I can assure you that you will go back to Godhead. Just follow Srila Prabhupada's instructions and the door to the spiritual sky will open up so wide that not only you will be able to enter, but you will able to take others with you also.
The problems is not with Srila Prabhupada's instruction, it is with management. You and your ultimate authority have usurped the position of His Divine Grace by publicly declaring that he appointed eleven acaryas/gurus. Although Tamal Krishna (who made this lie public) admitted that it was not true, and that Srila Prabhupada had really appointed eleven ritviks. Regardless of his admittance, the confederacy continued with the farce until their peccadillos were framed by the media. This continues year-after-year, with the worst yet to come. And it is this sampradaya that has given you and many others- guru status. Furthermore, it is you gurus (as GBC) that hire and fire quislings who remain in their positions under contract to protect ISKCON (the ultimate authority) from any redress, no matter what. We know and understand this well, because we were part of that infrastructure. So the doorway that
was opened by His Divine Grace is now blocked by pseudo spiritualists who claim leadership, but are no more than begging-bowl-bhagvans.
Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada, Bhakti Charu Swami<<
