"I never went for astrology, mediums, séances, channeling, healing hands, angels, yamaduttas, homeopathy, ghosts, demons, Jesus, guardian angels, talking snakes, past life regression, asuras ... or anime that doesn't embryo, seed, egg, or germinate."
In a news item written under title- "Divine diplomacy : build Russian church, let temple stay" * published by The Telegraph (Kolkata- India,) dated- Oct 17, 2013, a journalist named Charu Sudan Kasturi informed readers - "Places of worship have crept into the agenda of summit talks between President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh." Our immediate reaction was to investigate how The Telegraph had found access to the Prime Minister's agenda, especially since no other more widely acknowledged media source had such privy; made mention of iskcon or speculated on any details in regard to the upcoming meeting.
The BIF team investigated validity of The Telegraph posting to find it was nothing more than 'freedom of press'. We did a wait-and-see. The iskcon Moscow temple was bulldozed as scheduled and without any mention of the matter being discussed at the meeting. The truth became apparent : iskcon was NOT on the agenda as claimed by The Telegraph. And after the temple was raised to the ground The journalist slithered back under his rock without mentioning another word. Our reaction to the debacle was posted in- "LIAR! LIAR!" (Part Two). Here is an excerpt:
"So why didn't the Indian PM intervene? Here is a possible reason: On Friday 11th Sept. 2011, a powerful group of representatives from India's religious, mercantile, legal and political fraternities met to discuss ISKCON.. its history, political agenda, teachings and presence in India. On the following Tuesday 15th Sept. 2011, the group met with India's Mananiya Pradhan Mantri (Prime Minister) Mahodhay, Shri Manmohan Singh to present their views and concerns. What transpired there is classified and known only to those in attendance. Further, Members of that representation dispatched relative segments of the discussion to the Russian Embassy."
Once AGAIN, with the Russian Premier's visit to India on Thursday- 12th Dec, The Telegraph claimed privy to pre-talks between Mr. Putin and India's newly elected Indian PM, Modi. And AGAIN, the subject was iskcon. Here it is, belted out to readers from the Front Page of that very same Bengali publication- "Temple-for-church test stares at Modi" * dated- Dec. 8 ... And who was the journalist? Yes, you are absolutely right ... it was the same Charu Sudan Kasturi. He told Telegraph readership- "A soured temple-for-church exchange pact between New Delhi and Moscow has added an unlikely edge to the Prime Minister's scheduled talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin here on Thursday." Once again Kasturi and his editor lied about having inside information ...and only to suggest iskcon is a cult of International importance.
This essay was keyed only a few days after meetings were held between the Premiers. We find no media reports confirming iskcon was a topic for discussion. Our researchers have closely followed The Telegraph headlines on the meetings. NO! Not a whisper about temples or cults. AGAIN, iskcon was NOT on the agenda. Once AGAIN, the journalists- Kasturi and his editor, have crapped and crept without any sense of decency or need for explanation.
So what is the reason for The Telegraph hype; its flagrant abuse of fiduciary obligation and lack of ethic? Why does the Gaudiya based daily continue to misreport, and specifically in connection with the American-Hindu cult? There is no mistaking the e-paper's pumping iskcon to give it an inflated public presence : falsely selling the cult as the pinnacle of leadership concerns.
Why does the Indian Press (politicians and Bollywoodians) promote impropaganda to benefit the cult? Is there money changing hands? Has Indian journalism abandoned press standards, common courtesy and expectations? Forced by circumstance to investigate the matter some years ago, we made a startling discovery.
When attempting (in India) to promote our book on the poisoning of the cult's founder, we were never stonewalled. Nor was there reason for it. The book was free. Indian academics were kind and understanding as were the legal medical and commercial sectors. It was only within offices of Indian media that the temperature dropped sub-zero.
At first it appeared to be journalistic security norm : press contraventions. However, after subjection to incessant interrogation by editors and sub-editors who then declined our FREE book, we started looking at necks... and there it was... cult dog-collars ... neckbeads. It became obvious : the Indian press is thoroughly infiltrated by iskcon, and at its fastigium.
To confirm or deny belief, we reversed tactics. Acting as opponents to the free book, we approached media offices, book in hand, and struck up friendly conversations. Within minutes it was made apparent ... most members of the press are iskcon Life Members, or have friends and relatives who are. They visit iskcon temples with family. Their offices are served free food and 'maha sweets' ("Prasadam Press") on festivals, and iskcon devotees frequent their premises on a regular basis.
It was then we noticed iskcon books on shelves ...office members wearing cult-collars, and some even carried beadbags. The more we talked, the longer we stayed, the longer we stayed the more we realized how iskcon had invested time effort and money to 'CULTivate' the Indian press.
Recent media releases show politicians and press in a waltz to promote iskcon madness as Hindutva. Whether angling for votes by appeasing the masses, or simply a victim of tropical brain-fever, India's External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj decided to convert the External Affairs Ministry into a religious ministry for Gita gastritis. She made public her desire to implement the Gita as India's Bible* ... and cited in support the Prime Minister, Modi's gifting of the Gita to a visiting dignitary as indication of the book's validity ipso facto concentric to attitudes and beliefs of ALL Indian voters.
Meantime in a separate polly-press polka, Swaraj's referee, Narendra Modi was pontificating poorana as parliamentary and head transplants as plastic-sastric-surgery. Here is an excerpt from The Guardian, with link:
"We can feel proud of what our country achieved in medical science at one point of time," the prime minister told a gathering of doctors and other professionals at a hospital in Mumbai on Saturday. "We all read about Karna in the Mahabharata. If we think a little more, we realize that the Mahabharata says Karna was not born from his mother's womb. This means that genetic science was present at that time. That is why Karna could be born outside his mother's womb."
Modi went on: "We worship Lord Ganesha. There must have been some plastic surgeon at that time who got an elephant's head on the body of a human being and began the practice of plastic surgery."
Are you afraid for the future? Perhaps nuclear Narendra-ji will mistake the red button for a roach ... hmmm? We have no doubt the External Minister's Gita will never be Nationalized. Not even by Hindus, many of whom do not worship Krishna as "The Supreme Personality of Godhead" ... or bhagavan of the bakwas. What to speak of Saivites, Sikhs, Christians, Muslims, Parsis etc., etc., etc., all of whom are Indians. In fact, as soon as the Indian Rajya Sabha opened for business the External Minister was howled out for attempting to alter the secular character of the Indian Constitution.*
As readers would have noticed in the article above, in defense of the BJP belle, her colleagues offered the following argument, which went down as the final conclusion:- "Gita is not a dharma granth. It is a karma granth," Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.
So are we to understand that Krishna, who persistently claims- "Aham ... I am god" is in fact nothing more than an action Jackson interaction? Because if we accept the BJP conclusion, the Gita is simply a 700 verse definition of action and reaction. But then, how does a follower of the karma granth eliminate this krishna dharma granth:-
"It should be understood that all species of life, o son of Kunti, are made possible by birth in this material nature, and that I am the seed giving father" (Bhagavad-Gita 14.4)
"I am the father of this universe, the mother, the support and the grandsire"(Bhagavad-Gita 9.17)
"The whole cosmic order is under me. By my will it is manifested again and again, and by my will it is annihilated at the end" (Bhagavad-Gita 9.8)
"Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being, moving or unmoving, that can exist without me" (Bhagavad-Gita 10.39)
"I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who perfectly know this engage in My devotional service and worship Me with all their hearts" (Bhagavad-Gita 10.8)
"Of all that is material and all that is spiritual in this world, know for certain that I am both the origin and the dissolution" (Bhagavad-Gita 7.6)
What the above quotes tell us has nothing to do with karma other than 'believe krishna is god or suffer the consequences.' NO! To follow the Gita in any form is to accept the Universal Form ... "Krishna is god." And that is difficult when the Gita as a literature, as an historical account, as a pre-battle 'Song of God' ... is a begging-belief account, a contradiction, atypical Sun Tzu, out of character, out of tune, off rhythm and without pulse.... slushed with the defecation of millions of elephants, billions of prancing horses, nearly two billion sweating soldiers and grooms baking in the Haryana sun, all of them waiting for 'aham' to speak 700 verses of Sushma Swaraj' karma granth ... while 100 km away an all-in-one telecasting unit named Sanjaya is transceiving every word and deed via a satellite ... orbiting in his head.... and relaying events to his blind king who wanted to know what his sons were doing on the battlefield... NOT WHO IS GOD?
Sanjaya's mano-a-mano relay is then somehow bounced of a transmitter somewhere in Muniland and solo received ... ad verbatim and act-for-act ... by the accredited author of the two-in-one Gita and Mahabharata- Vyasa.... who contracts Ganesh (yes, the Indian PM's head transplant) to transcribe the 5'000 years ago wi-fi Sanjantar-mantar into sect sacerdotalism. Go figure.
Even when we look at the karma granth angle .... what we see is basic morality hijacked by divine diddlers and flogged as politico-socio-religious creedo. The fact becomes obvious when we realize that foreign governments, who don't give a bugger about the Gita, have legislated karma non differently to the Indian Constitution.
Following closely on the heels of Sushma Swaraj's hoop-la (and rebuff,) a group of south Indian brahmins raised voice in support of the Swaraj suggestion. These brahmins are progeny of the same guys who gave us 88 mile high mountains in Mathura ... 900'000 cows grazing everyday on Govardhan's rocks and ....Akrura's ALL DAY ride on a chariot hauled by horses traveling at the "speed of wind" to reach Vrindavan from Mathura...a twenty minute strain by "speed of" wind passing rickshaw wallahs.
"Kerala-based Yogakshema Sabha, a socio-cultural outfit of Malayali Brahmin community, today demanded that the Bhagavad Gita be made the "national scripture",
What strikes anyone who opens the link above is the inserted picture of the Gita. What readers may notice is that the cover painting on the book is iskcon copyright... originally painted by American convert- Jadurani devi dasi. What many readers will not know is that although the group making the demand is Kerala based, the title of the book is not in Telugu or Malayalam. It is titled in (Gaudiya) Bengali (???) ... and what it says is- "SriMAD Bhagavadgita Jathajato"... Translated: "SriMAD Bhagavadgita As It Is." That's right pilgrims... once again we find iskcon and Indian journalism in bed together... Prasadam Press.
21. By involving Indian philanthropists, pollies, celebrities and media, iskcon hare krishna has muscled in on a midday meal program first introduced in 1923 (Madras,) a scheme which was then expanded by CM Kamaraj in the 60s. Iskcon secured a foothold and successfully used the program to collect monies from OCI ...NRI and Indians at home. Yet, at its core, the cult involvement has a far greater and sinister agenda. The scheme provides opportunity to infiltrate the education system ... a bait-and-switch means to implement the dreams of its crazy, dictatorial, dead founder-De (read our Summary below.) So the initial concept of the free food scheme is now Disneyfied and isConned ... replaced by a Christian type Sunday School crusade to indoctrinate Indian youth, ... a hidden monster which, after only a few years of bating pollies, pin-ups, press, and educational system with 'free' food, is starting to eat the eaters:
"Schools should teach Bhagavad Gita: Minister
Hyderabad, Dec 19 (INN): Telangana Education Minister G Jagadish Reddy on Friday advocated the participation of all schools in the State in 'Value Empowerment Program', which is based on religious scripture Bhagavad Gita.
The minister launched the 'Value Empowerment Programme' designed by VOICE (Vedic Oasis for Inspiration, culture and Education), the educational wing of The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) at his office in the State Secretariat on Friday......
It may be mentioned that Bharatiya Janata Party has been demanding that Bhagavad Gita be declared as the national book.....[...]...ISKCON has claimed that it has successfully conducted BGC exams in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmednagar, Nanded and Jalgaon with over 100,000 students participating. About two lakh individuals participated in GPL over the last three years, it said."
22. The news item above knots pollies, press and cult together in bind Houdini couldn't escape. Those who think the Gita promoted by Indian governors is the Vivekananda, Gandhi or Aurobinda version, you are wrong. Those editions have been around for a long time without any 'rashtriya grant' crusade. It is the Bhagavad Gita As It Is which is being pushed ... by a cult feeling secure in the belly of school kids ... in the hearts of parents ... in pockets of the elected ... in cameo with celebrities... and promoted by a Prasadam Press. Furthermore, the cult reads what everyone else does... a Hindutva government facilitating iskcon in a first step to world domination .... as desired and predicted by its founder.
23. We request Indian Media Monitors to take a serious look at demarcation between Free Press and journalistic integrity. Surely some form of media watch must exist in India that is truthful and honest ... someone in the Indian broadcasting business who has a sense of candor... an onus to the craft. There is no possibility of achieving a platform of realistic reporting if journalists believe a golden chariot will burst from the sky... reined by four-armed Vishnudutas who will Santa Claus them over chimney tops to Paradise and eternity .... a belief implanted and CULTivated over free plates of curd and beans.
To believe the politico-filmstar-press-sect propaganda orgy can be peep-showed through a Hindutva lens is cachexic .... Sabha-Bollywood-cult cranked cack. People can see it happening and independent columnists are keying it out there. Here is only one of many written by a Bengali ... a self confessed Hindu who respects the Gita (....hmmm) but has enough savvy to spot the saprogenous samaj feeding on holy dinosaur dung. Interestingly, iskcon gets a mention. The cult is compared to ISIS. Just read what the iskcon spokesman has to say in the link below ... and understand that iskcon strives endlessly to realize DEmented De's dream of eventual world domination:
De (Prabhupada) :- "Arjuna was a great Vaishnava, and he was killing. Bhima was a great Vaishnava, and he was killing. Dhruva Maharaja was a Vaishnava, and he was killing. Parikshit Maharaja was killing. Prahlada Maharaja was killing. Rama was killing. Krishna was killing. Practically speaking, Vaishnavas are killers.....[...]... It is not that because Mohammed used a sword, we also must use a sword, No ! - we can use a Gun. We will ask -...You like Krishna ?? No -- Booom.. You like Krishna ? No -- Booom . We can use everything for Krishna, we can use the ATOM BOMB FOR KRISHNA !! ...[...]... Not now but when we are more powerful."

KNOTS in a THREAD
1) If the list below is any indication ... the worst is yet to come. And when we understand that iskcon Akshaya Patra is now in league with Monsanto, the cult should concentrate future efforts in building crematoriums, not temples.

2) iskcon jackboots the needy to grab donations and profit:
Women groups say enlisting ISKCON will leave many unemployed, seeks CM help

3) Is iskcon Hindu ... but really?
Hare Krishnas and Mr President collaborate for Christmas-themed album
4) Readers beware. A sting operation is underway in the Asian belt. We post this only because the major player is an NGO operating out of our home city- Kolkata.
A.P.L.E and its Director- Thierry Darnudet (French) own two large orphanages in Kolkata, one is an 80 room house situated in the Lake Gardens area.
In recent times the reputation of the man and his involvement with Asian officials in an alleged pedophile / sex sting operation is coming to fore. It is destroying the lives of many who are screaming innocence but can find no justice.
More often than not, the shakedown begins with two girls entering the hotel room of a foreigner. One girl is legal the other is jailbait. While the older girl engages the prospective client in conversation the younger one strips. The door burst open and ... its cops and cameras.
We are building a case file for presentation to Indian authorities, and in some part, for release to our readership over time. Here is just one sample outlining the ruination facing travelers who get stung.
"..i know your website is only about cult. As evil as the content reads my story here is equal if not worse."
"dear b-i-f editor.
thanks. you are my only hope because you are in Kolkata where this villain (Darnudet) is directing his empire from. He is now expanding to the Philippines, Nepal, India and other countries because he received 1.6 Mio USD from Terre des Hommes the Netherlands for this purpose. Is there no way to bring this trash to justice ??
