MAHASANA PR. AND BIF
BIF: Hare Krsna,
>>I am Srila Prabhupada’s disciple, (as we all are or should be), initiated 1975. I left ISKCON in 1981 feeling very dissatisfied with the gurus and how the devotees in the temples seemed to just overlook how the gurus were doing crazy things. It felt like a type of blindness that wasn’t there when Srila Prabhupada was in charge. His life wasn’t full of deviations and cover-ups. Anyway, I left and kept my distance for 3 decades. Deep down inside I loved Srila Prabhupada but was confused as to how he could appoint such crazy people as his successors.
BIF: Thank You for your letter Mahasana ji, and for your courage in keying it. It was the loss of devotees like yourself that truly impacted corporate iskcon, and the brain-drain continues as those with intelligence ask themselves how a spotless acarya, who had not made a single error in his entire lila, uncharacteristically made eleven in one day. However, as evidence shows, you never really left. This lends weight to belief that love for guru and matha is a state of the heart.
>>A friend of mine urged me to read “Someone Has Poisoned Me”. It took me a few months before I picked up the book, but when I read it, everything fell into place. It was crystal clear to me that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned and that his poisoners were the leaders who took over the movement, particularly Tamal Krsna Goswami, who I am convinced directly poisoned Srila Prabhupada.
BIF: Prabhuji, welcome to the ranks of those who have been branded rats, cockroaches, kalichelas, and poison vadis by the GBC. At least here your realizations will not be compromised by a need to fill your belly. There are several, if not most, within the iskcon administration who are in tacit agreement with your own conclusions, but are forced by their insecurities to live in the consciousness of sheep, and have become complicit in doing so.
>>Also, I realized that Srila Prabhupada did not appoint initiating gurus but ritvik gurus, priests to represent Prabhupada in the formalities of initiating. I received my first initiation in ’75 by Srila Prabhupada and in ’77 by Ramesvara Swami (in his ritvik capacity, as Srila Prabhupada was in India and very sick). So, I realized that the same process was meant to be continued and that upon Srila Prabhupada’s passing, a concoction based on falsities was put forward as Prabhupada’s desire.
BIF: Herein lies the crux of the crime; the origins of the Acarya-ha sampradaya. Led by a blind ambitious fool who refused to accept that he was o-so-mercifully given membership to an ism originating from the Lord Himself, and only shortly after deciding whether chicken or beef was on the menu, they anointed themselves acaryapada, visnupada, bahktipada, etc., etc. When there was protest, the protesters were told that dogs could bark but the caravan will go on. What they could not see then, or now, is that the caravan is moving through Maya Devi's desert, nothing escapes the amphitheatre of Her attention. Already Her ferocity is becoming very visible. Bhakticaru, Bhavananda, Satadhanya et al, should know by now- She has them fixed firmly in Her crosshairs.
>>Indeed, in 1977 right after Srila Prabhupada had passed away, there were rumors floating around the movement and I had heard in San Diego that Srila Prabhupada had complained about being poisoned. I brought this up to (I believe, as I am not positive who, but nearly positive) Badrinarayana dasa and he said that Srila Prabhupada was very sick and was a little confused. So I remember this vaguely but what I do remember was that the rumor was floating around ISKCON that Srila Prabhupada complained about being poisoned and the implication was that Srila Prabhupada had a little dementia. I accepted this at the time but it really didn’t ring true to my heart.
BIF: The "sick and confused", "dementia" myth, was circulated by Tamal Krsna as part of his smoke-and-mirror contriviance to cover the stench of poison. It was further endorsed by his puppy-dogs, who directly backed him and camouflaged the misprision by pointing to him as Srila Prabhupada's confidante and chosen one. What is truly unbelievable is that senior management, those who were there, gave Srila Prabhupada's declaration no credence while inhaling deeply on Tamal's ganja. In retrospect, it brings to mind a quote from Shakespeare's Othello- "I will kill thee now and love thee later". The truth is, as attested to by the final conversation tapes, His Divine Grace had a razor sharp awareness of his predicament and surroundings, certainly sharper than his toxic 'carers' who were jockeying shamelessly for position in the inheritance stakes.
>>That time also it was ok to discuss in the temple whether “everything you need to know” was in Srila Prabhupada’s books and therefore, what was the need for these new gurus? We discussed this issue repeatedly during Srimad Bhagavatam class without there being any consequences. As time went on, however, this type of discussion was canned and I remember feeling like although there was no closure to the question, we could no longer speak about it and had to move on, accepting the gurus as bona fide. Frankly, I was out of the loop of power so I was not aware of how mandates were handed down. Like the typical rank and file devotee, I went along, as knowledge is passed from the more advanced to the less.
BIF: All toxin bearing predators use the same methodology you describe above: they deliver the venom and wait for the victim to asphyxiate before devouring it. What we also see, is how a cult subjected by a hierarchal head, locked in on all sides by a 'no vote' structured governance; officers for life, makes the perfect incubator to hatch a murder-for-profit scheme and cover. After all, if there was no question of homicide by the officers who were there, and all further appointments were/are made by internal selection, why would new appointees question what their selectors did not?** It is why Tamal Krsna, using his position as secretary, hid the DOM, and by so doing initiated the brain drain that could quite easily have exposed the truth.
**Read our "Letters to the void" if you want to see how new appointees to the GBC, squirm when confronted by this issue.
>>I remember, around 1998 or so, I was told that Srila Prabhupada’s books were being edited and it was controversial. So, I got a Revised and Enlarged version of the Bhagavad-Gita As It Is and I turned immediately to verse 4:34 and jumped to the purport. I compared it to my dusty, original copy and low and behold, the sentence, “Nor by independent study of books of knowledge can one progress in spiritual life,” was added. I hadn’t touched Srila Prabhupada’s books in years and that was the very first place I went. That’s when I became convinced that there was something very foul going on. They had answered the question all right, about needing or not needing a guru when everything was “in my books”. They answered the question by changing Srila Prabhupada’s words, and this was done in the slipperiest of ways.
BIF: "Like a ripe mango" the instructions have been passed down through time immemorial by the holiest of the holy, and now we encounter parasite editors attempting to contaminate this treasured fruit by stinging it with their eggs. However, we can all see, the skin is impregnable; the eggs lie infertile on the surface bereft of offspring. They will all die, parasites and eggs, only His Divine Grace lives forever, far beyond the reach of murderers, demons, and mundane editors.
>>My life, however, really changed when I read “Someone Has Poisoned Me.” At the time I was very sick with a digestive disorder and I wasn’t sure whether I had long to live. When I read this book, I cried my eyes out and realized from my own situation that Srila Prabhupada suffered to try to save me. I would lay on my bed balled up in pain, close my eyes, and pretend to just hold onto Srila Prabhupada’s lotus feet. That was my only peace and my only penance.
BIF: It is very difficult for those who have never been targeted by the GBC and their goons to understand the treatment meted out to Nityananda Prabhu for his revelations in the book- Someone has Poisoned Me. They excommunicated him for simply stating what was already a fact: our Gurudeva believed that he had been poisoned. That is why Tamal Krsna had the audacity to do what he did. He knew he had subjudicated the whole damn lot of them by using only the first two tenets of compromise as revealed in sastra: "gifts" and "position". Yes, even the devil knows scripture.
On a more personal note, thank you Mahasana Pr., for sharing your realizations with us. The enforced fable that Srila Prabhupada's mercy leaves us destitute once we leave iskcon, has been used like a jackhammer by the GBC for years. We now know (like many other-"Prabhuapada said" quotes) it was applied as nothing more than a psychological key to lock away the doormats. "Don't be surprised who goes, be surprised who stays", leans to a very different intereptation these days.
>>Later, I read the ISKCON rebuttal, “Not That I Am Poisoned”, and listened to Danavir and others either gloss over the legitimate claims and questions that “Someone Has Poisoned Me” raised, or, call the devotees, who raised these painful questions, demons. Why, I wondered? I had these questions too and reading Nityananda dasa’s book made sense of it all. When I read Bhakti Caru’s testimony, the message I got was, “If you dare say Srila Prabhupada was poisoned, you best watch your back because Guru Kripa or some thug will beat you up or perhaps kill you.” His testimony felt like a veiled threat, and I thought, “What a sneaky worm.”
BIF: Of the main characters in the poison issue, Bhakticaru is the biggest coward of all. We hear him in the final conversation tapes (1977), telling others that Srila Prabhupada's says he is being poisoned, and the morning after His Divine Grace left his body, Bhakticaru could not contain his guilt, he was crying in the passage beside the temple, when Abhinandana das asked why he was crying he admitted that Prabhupada had been poisoned although he would not say by whom. Twenty three years later he secretly financed the book "Not that I am Poisoned", and wrote a statement in which he claimed- "When I first heard about this allegation I considered it to be so absurd that I did not think it deserved any response". We put a set of questions to this mahajana, which can be read on BIF. He refused to answer on the grounds that he did not know us.
So we have seen how Maya Devi has publicly smashed many of those who supported Tamal's book- Not That I am Poisoned": Bhaktitirtha (who called us rats and cockroaches) was eaten publicly by the vermin cells of his own body. Tamal was smashed and his stiffened carcass needed further smashing to fit into his 'samadhi'. Jaypataka's body has been twisted out of shape. You will need eyes tinged with the salve of stupidity to envision him as the ecclesiastical face of Krsna- a description of the GBC that can be directly attributed to him. We have pulled up our chairs to watch what the material energy has in store for Bhakticaru, Bhavananda, and the beast- Satadhanya et al. You can be sure it wont be a show for the faint hearted....and then they will come back to do it all over again, and again, and again, and...
>>When I finally read, “Judge For Yourself,” I could see the truth. ISKCON was involved in a grand deception, led by the prime murder suspect, Tamal Krsna Goswami, who was secretly behind “Not That I Am Poisoned”. I felt that “Someone Has Poisoned Me” was a serious punch in the stomach for ISKCON and “Not That I Am Poisoned”, was a hit below the belt. “Judge For Yourself” was a follow up counter punch that knocked ISKCON to the mat. Unfortunately, the fight persists, as ISKCON has a corner man that puts weights in the gloves and salt on the leather, in the form of money and organization.
BIF: Even before the GBC book went to print, the manuscript was given to this writer for perusal. Both, the author and publisher of the book were well known to us. We can say without any doubt that neither of the two would have ventured into this dark area other than for the fact they were under orders from Tamal Krsna, Bhakticaru, Jayapataka et al. Their 'surrender' was commandeered by the cabal. This being the whole point in the 'no vote', officer for life program. We also knew that when given a specific task to accomplish, the author, by his very nature, would seek to execute his mission quickly and under guidance of superiors. Since we had recognized his superiors to be criminals, it was evident that the book would be nothing if not a con.....and that's exactly what it proved to be.
It is interesting to note that prior to releasing our rebuttal- "Judge for Yourself" (JFY), the BIF team was discussing the possibilities of legal repercussions in the form of libel/slander/defamation. It took us less than fifteen minutes to conclude the GBC would never go legal. We knew they were dumb, but not that dumb. And true to our understanding, as soon as we released the book (JFY), they headed for the hills, dived into their holes, pulled down the shutters, and that's where they remain to this day. No amount of taunting or baiting has succeeded in drawing them out. We thought about using toxins, but that's for dirty, filthy, low-down cowards and snakes, not devotees.
>>Recently, I again read, “Judge For Yourself” just to keep my focus on the priorities of life. “Judge For Yourself” really takes the mask off the villains, and although it is sad that such a book had to be written, it is nectar and indisputable truth.
BIF: Thank You Prabhu. It is a fact that there are many who will never understand how difficult it has been to deal with this sad dark issue. We have also been classified by the GBC sycophants as vermin. You can read this in their book. However, the truth is, we are dogs; Srila Prabhupada's Pitt Bulls. We will never let go. Even today you cannot put an iskcon cult connected word on a search engine without discovering that His Divine Grace said that he was poisoned, or about his books being tampered with, or the child abuse, or the hijacking of his disciples, or his DOM being concealed, or the murders, or the homosexuality, or the ongoing court cases. And now, as our younger siblings take up the battle, our brothers and sisters who left earlier; who can now put a face to the facade, are returning slowly but surely with retribution in mind. If the GBC will not turn then they will burn, and we will continue to stoke the fire.
>>On your website you have posted that another book is coming out revealing that cadmium in high levels (and probably arsenic too) was added to Srila Prabhupada’s final food supply. I am looking forward to reading this book and I check your website nearly every single day for updates. I hope the truth comes out, one way or the other, because the issue of Srila Prabhupada’s poisoning blocks any further progress in Krsna Consciousness through his original ISKCON movement. Unless and until the truth comes out, ISKCON is a dead movement. Nothing can revive ISKCON or save Srila Prabhupada’s books, mission, or instructions EXCEPT for the disclosure of Srila Prabhupada’s murder. That one event will end the façade and put things on the right track. Otherwise, I see no hope.
BIF: Your convictions are exactly in line with ours. Unless Srila Prabhupada's poisoning is dealt with, the oozing of the toxin that is slowly paralyzing iskcon, will never be exposed to antidote. Subtle and chronic, it is triggering an unmistakable rise in insanity. Devotees are loosing their sense of self identification in regards to varna and asrama which is intrinsic to human nature....what to speak of self realization. The removal of Srila Prabhupada's DOM (Direction of Management) has left the iskcon society with only two asramas...devas and doormats. The devas are having an even more serious loss of identification: where the emphasis is placed heavily on celibacy, the celibate devas have already admitted to having sexual intercourse with their enslaved doormats: sex with male disciples; fondling the genitals of little girls; raping little boys, etc., etc. Dirty filthy business even for those who don't accept the existence of God. This is the poisonous legacy of the Ravana, whom Srila Prabhupada said was in the room with him, trying to kill him.
The answer to the question as to how a pure devotee of the Lord could be poisoned is slowly unraveling before our eyes. He allowed it to happen so he could provide us, as a last resort, with the most powerful antidote possible for the curing of his beloved ISKCON; to bring it back from the precipice and away from the abyss where Ravana has dragged it, unchecked. So we are in total agreement with you in that putting the poison issue under the microscope will reveal the cure for ISKCON's malady.
Re. the upcoming report from "Save the Mission" should be on our screens in a short while. We were in contact with its author only this morning. Hopefully he is convinced to permit the posting of at least a few pages for the interest of devotees and other parties who are beginning a push to resolve the issue. We will wait and see.
>>Thank you for the fight,
BIF ...and thank you again for sharing your thoughts with us.
Your unworthy servant,
