Aja Uttama (Remix Video)


Temple Hi-jacking Team And: Guru of the Jagat?

[PADA: Thanks for your report prabhu, that after it was well known that Romapada swami is helping Ramabhadra for years if not decades with the Brooklyn building imbroglio, he is immediately welcomed in Los Angeles, apparently with the big leaders there falling at his feet. And he is immediately announced as: their initiating guru; sum total of the demigods; shaksat hari tvena messsiah of the jagat etc. And he reportedly initiated people there. Is this because the leaders in Los Angeles think Romapada is another Jesus, and he can be a diksha guru and absorb sins like Jesus? 

Yep, at the same time, isn't he a property hi-jacker according to other GBC authority? MANY ex-collectors who "did the pick" to collect millions of dollars to buy all these properties tell us they are now very hurt and disgusted that the GBC would allow a few people to hi-jack these properties and basically BAN the people who built these properties with their hard work and labor for so many years.

You are right, this is another method how these guys take over property, they initiate people, gradually get their own initiated people set up as legal signators on the properties, and then de facto, they own it. Anyway, here he is, his temple is locked up, changed the keys, and the rest of the GBC are not allowed on the premises. And yet he is given the keynote speaking post, and guru post too?

Yep! And his pal says he will have GBC arrested for trespassing, and yet, the LA authority / some on the GBC / apparently still says -- he is another Jagat Guru, savior of the universe? How can a property hi-jacking team member be the savior of the universe? Dunno! Ask them! Yes this is getting ridiculous! Hee hee! I also think you are right, this appears to prove the whole lot of them are corrupt to the core. ys pd]

Tulsi Gabbard: Janmashtami Message 2017 (video)


The Hitler Prajalpa-ites (Update)

PADA: OK, some time ago we were trying to save a young woman who was being exploited by a much older "devotee" man, and the Sanat / Mukunda (UK) / Prahlad (UK) / Pancali / Janardan / Krishna Kirtan team and / or their hangers on such as HKC Jaipur types -- they all joined up to attack PADA -- and defend the exploiting situation. 

They do not know that its sinful to exploit young devotee women in the name of Krishna? OK, and these people ended up creating a catastrophic mess, not unlike the same type of catastrophic mess that sometimes happens in GBC's guru land. As usual, we predicted they would create this disaster years ahead, and it came to pass.     

They apparently also do not know that child abuse is wrong, because they said PADA is wrong to have hundreds of children pulled out of that process. Why do they think keeping children in oppressed situations is the way forward for the jagat? 

As a number of ex-kulis ask PADA:

What makes them different from the bad guys?  

Worse, Prahlad said we need to send the photos of those opposing his women and children exploiting program to the GBC's goons, to get them killed. Why are some of these guys still working hand in glove with the GBC's goondas? They don't have enough Vaishnava's blood on their giant jack boots already? 

Ooops, and Krishna Kirtan is promoting Krishna Balarama swami, another grand wizard messiah wanna-be. At the same time, their creating all this friction simply gave the GBC-ites ammunition to say the ritviks "do not get along." Why do they want to always discredit the Prabhupadanuga's program, and give ammunition to the bad guys? Did we forget, some of them also made a video with Bhakta das, chief cheer leader of the Radhanath program? OK none of the actual ritviks think Bhakta das is their authority. 

In the end -- they apparently helped no one, especially their victims, and confused many. I still really cannot see any actual evidence that they are now helping their victims? Worse, it appears some of the GBC ilk are correct about them, these people vociferously promote exploiting, and then leave their women and children victims without any proper support, while saying this is not right when done by others. 

Or worse, some of them (like the IRM?) have been saying that child victimization needs to continue to "save the buildings from lawsuits." We need to save some stones and bricks, but not the people? Again, GBC ilk is accused of the same heartless if not criminal mentality ... 

It thus seems that one of the first problems with the Hitler prajalpa folks is, they cannot seem to run much of a functioning program themselves. And if someone does make a functioning program, like Bangalore for example, they will complain that this program "does not have enough kirtana." OK maybe, but where is their big kirtana program? 

We keep getting requests from folks in the UK to send us the address of our Prabhupadanuga programs there, ok and where are they? And why aren't these guys doing it? Oh I forgot, they are meditating on WW II and not Krishna? Yep, Bangalore folks are taking the GBC's gurus to court, to prove that Srila Prabhupada is the acharya. So we need to stomp on Bangalore, to save the bogus gurus?

At least the Prabhupadanugas in many other places have something going on. Its almost as if -- the reason some in this team admire Hitler is, he had no success in attaining what he set out to accomplish, and he allegedly killed himself in a bunker, not even going out to die on the battlefield like a proper soldier. Is this their idea of success? Mukunda says we all need to be like Hitler, and die in a bunker after losing? And Prahlad says Mukunda's videos are great, they get lots of hits. Swell! Srila Prabhupada says a leader living in a bunker while his soldiers are outside dying is -- demoniac.

Of course then again some of these same guys promote Bob Dylan, who goes to Israel to perform music at Jewish ceremonies. We need to be promoting going to Israel and singing at the Bar Mitzvah? And PADA is bad, because we are not joining their program of singing at Bar Mitzvahs? And PADA is even worse, because we used "contaminated taxi driving money" to help Sulochana and later make copies of the poison tapes, when we should have left the poison tapes become eternally secret and hidden for the next 10,000 years, while we "got a better job." Getting a better job is the goal of life? Who knew!    

Anyway, now some of these folks are still going on about the "Jewish Body Devotees," the so-called JBD's and their influence on ISKCON. For starters, some of them complain that the "JBD's" are 1% or 2% of the total of the 5,000 original disciples. So that would mean, the greater mass of 98% devotees were bewitched, bewildered, be-fooled, and cheated by the 1% or 2% percent. Why don't the Hitler-pada-ites explain how this process happened? If the blind are leading the blind, why is one party the main cause if many of them are falling into a ditch? 

OK and that would mean -- a lot of the 98% failed to take proper action to protect their religion rather simply, and they did not use much logic, rational thinking, or discrimination, what to speak of shastra, when the 1% or 2% percent said, henceforward ... conditioned souls are acharyas. 

That issue alone should have raised major red flags among the 98% from square one (as it did with some of us) ... and the mass of 98% should have opposed the deviant 1% or 2%, and they should have stood with us and said -- deviants are not acharyas. That is not what happened, the 98% mainly sold out, and then later on left, or whatever, but as a rule, they did not launch a proper counter point. 

Q: Didn't the 98% know that deviants are not gurus? 
A: Yup. 
Q: Did they join us in protest of said deviant gurus? 
A: Not very much. And a number opposed us -- for protesting. 

An ex-gurukuli told me just a few days ago, as far as he can see, almost all of the original 98% of devotees have simply lost interest in what happens within the walls of ISKCON. He said, even if the ISKCON GBC announced a program of worshiping Satan, and they kicked out Krishna and installed Satan deities, it would still not rally many of the 98% into any action, as they are "engaged in other things." 

OK the 98% did not fix the mess at the outset, and for the most part (with few exceptions) are not interested in fixing it now, despite knowing it is a mess by now for sure. Same as the Gaudiya Matha, one party deviated, one party abandoned ship and sat around in the tea shops, both are useless.

Then again we have guys like Rocana, and he basically says that Srila Prabhupada wanted all the deity worship to stop because there would no longer be any initiated "post samadhi" disciples. So we invited Krishna to come, just so after 1978 we could move Him off into an empty warehouse storage building, or force Him to take offerings made to conditioned souls, when there were no more proper poojaris (as has been happening under the post samadhi-ites)?

Well yep. 

So that means the lack of resistance -- if not acquiescing and compliance of most of the 98% -- enabled and empowered -- the bogus 2%, whether so-called JBD or non-JBD "gurus" like "Bhakti Tirtha Swami Krishnapada"; Germans like Hansadutta; Baptists like Kirtanananda; ex-Hindus like Gopal Krishna, Swarupa Damodar, Gaura Govinda maharaja and so forth. Meanwhile some of the top "advisers / assistants" of the GBC's gurus were Indian bodied folks like -- Gaura Govinda Maharaja, Sridhara Maharaja, Narayana Maharaja, Babajis, Fakir Mohan, to some extent BP Puri and others.  

And did we forget to mention the 1936 Gaudiya Matha had the same bogus guru process, with 100% India folks? No JBD's in attendence? And a Brijabasi told me -- poisoning and other forms of murdering of gurus, in order to take over their properties and disciples, has gone on for "thousands of years". OK its not just a current "JBD" program's "guru take over" exclusively. Its a broader question of motivated people who want to be gurus, and take over assets, and these people are everywhere at all times evidently, especially in Kali Yuga. 

What these anti-JBD folks are really saying is, most of the 98% mass of devotees were essentially not to blame for allowing the pirates to overtake the ship. Why not! And the 98% were not too well versed in shastra, and so they could be fooled very easily by a teeny group of cheaters. Doesn't that really mean, most of the 98% failed? If the snake oil salesman sells a few hundred people bogus medicine, and people get sick and die, aren't the people who bought and promoted the bogus product also guilty of not checking out the product? 

Most of the 98% apparently simply did not check to see if there had been a guru appointment, they apparently did not check shastra to find out that gurus do not become debauchees etc. etc etc. And a lot of the 98% gave us grief if not personal attacks when we tried to point out that the 2% were -- cheating the society. So the 98% were largely complicit by omission or commission? Or what? 

OK agreed, the snake oil salesman is the primary culprit, true enough, but if many other people help the bogus salesman promote his bogus products, aren't they almost as much to blame when people suffer ill effects of the bad medicine? So the crew of the ship walking off and allowing the pirates to take the ship is another problem, and its really the larger problem. 

In any case, a Jewish friend of ours says -- thanks to Hitler bombing the be-jeepers out of the British, the Brits became so weak they had to decamp from Palestine, and this is how the state of Israel was allowed to come into existence. So according to his theory, Hitler was actually helping the Zionist homeland come into being. Is this success for the so-called Hitler agenda? Would it not be better to find a hero, who actually has had some success? 

Hitler did not stop anything of substance really, he just made a huge mess, all sorts of people died, and then he died ingloriously. Of course, some "Hindu Nationalists" might say -- to Hitler's credit, he did weaken the Brits and this got them out of India, which is probably why some India nationalists appreciate him even now. At the same time, India is now very much Westernized and they have not removed the Western influence very much, so its a little -- watered down success.

In any case, what is the need of the hour is to actually form real programs that are actually preaching, printing books, making temples, installing deities, and gathering folks together for congregational chanting of the Lord's name. Sitting around yabbering about Hitler / the JBD / the Zionists / the Illuminati / chem trails etc. is not producing any of these results, and never will. Then again, someone told us, making Hitler into some sort of saint using the name of Krishna is -- what the Illuminati would want, and thus -- these guys are the Illuminati. Did we forget to mention, this agenda is simply not popular now, and -- it never will be? Which is why Srila Prabhupada said, we should not read about or discuss Hitler. ys pd


               
Not really popular.

Brooklyn Temple Imbroglio Update (08/12/17)

The latest news on Srila Prabhupada’s Sri Sri Radha Govinda Mandir in Brooklyn, NY. This post is from Sriman Madhumangala Das.

"Wake up Iskcon Devotees Worldwide !!!!

Ask the GBC why there are security guards dressed in black suits stationed at the doors to Sri Sri Radha Govinda Mandir in Brooklyn, NY? Just who are they trying to keep out? The only logical explanation is, those devotees and servants that don't approve of selling Sri Sri Radha Govinda's Temple.

Ramabhadra das has taken it upon himself to remove the Iskcon sign from the Temple facade. Does this signal that he has broken away from the ISKCON society even while the local GBC man Romapada Swami is still residing there?

How is this possible? How is it that we don't condone gambling and yet the the local Brooklyn Temple authorities and the GBC allowed a Bingo hall to operate for years on end on the Temple property? 

[PADA: What about the Haitian disco reported before that?]

All this happened while Romapada Swami was the GBC and Ramabhadra das was the president of the Brooklyn temple. How many devotees are aware that Romapada Swami's former disciple found bank statements years ago detailing that Romapada swami had millions of dollars in his bank account? (By the way, she was his official ACCOUNTANT.)

Why is it that Romapada Swami lent the Brooklyn Temple money years ago in the form of a loan with interest? Aren't sannyasis supposed to be the ultimate renunciates? If Romapada Swami is supposedly against the sale of the Temple how could he possibly still be living there?

The security guards stationed at the temple entrance are instructed to keep out those devotees who are known to be against the Temple sale. How can anyone sit by and watch all of this take place? How can the GBC have erred in such an egregious manner?

How has the GBC allowed Romapada Swami to own not one but two additional buildings in Brooklyn? (It is rumored that Romapada swami owns other buildings throughout the tri-state area under shell corporations and regularly makes loans to others at competitive interest rates. Where is the forensic accountant who will clear Romapada swami's name?)

How and from where could a renunciate get such large sums of money? Why did Srila Prabhupada live so humbly yet those that are supposed to be his representatives live such opulent lifestyles? Just go to Vrindavan and see how many of the ISKCON Gurus have their own personal residences.

Are we supposed to believe that Srila Prabhupada would approve of this? How is it that Srila Prabhupada couldn't be cheated out of his Juhu Property in Mumbai by a non-devotee, yet under the GBC's watch another Iskcon Temple has yet again been taken (or stolen?) by a devotee/Temple President?

Remember the Bangalore, India and Freeport, NY former ISKCON temples?

Something is extremely wrong here. It should also be of paramount importance that the assembled devotees understand that there is no cash register in the restaurant downstairs. This fact makes it extremely easy to both hide and launder cash money. Just how many $$$$ does the restaurant make daily?

Or weekly?
Or monthly?

Corruption is all that keeps coming to mind. After all, the complete temple finances are meant to be known by the entire congregation on a minimum of a yearly basis. Unfortunately this hasn't happened in at least the past two decades (20 years) to date.

Back to Romapada Swami... How is it that Romapada swami stood by and watched as all of the Brooklyn Temple locks were being changed? Does this sound like he was helping the GBC Body remove Ramabhadra das as president?
The most shocking of all, is that it is no secret that Ramabhadra das and Romapada Swami have shared a serious dislike for one another for many years, yet for some reason they were able to put aside that dislike and unite to sell their own Guru, Srila Prabhupada's Brooklyn Temple.

Sure seems like the almighty dollar has played a significant role in all of this, doesn't it? This whole situation could have been avoided had the GBC been paying close attention to the rapidly decaying situation in Srila Prabhupada’s Brooklyn, NY temple over the past 3 decades (30 years) , but they didn't.

How can anyone expect that the same GBC will act in a more responsible fashion from this point forward? If this can happen in Brooklyn, NY during the celebration of '50 yrs of ISKCON', where it all began, why can't your temple be next on the for sale list? Just ask the Irish devotees and their GBC about the sale of their 2 temples.

Has your temple become a 'valuable real estate property', mostly debt free?

You had better be vigilant. Which of Srila Prabhupada's temples, your temple, will be next on the secret sale list? Madhumangala prabhu asks that if care at all about Srila Prabhupada’s temples and His ISKCON, Krsna consciousness movement, then please share this with all your friends.

CAMPUS PREACHING - Back to school, back to Godhead. We have been invited back to the College of Central Florida for our third Semester of Srila Prabhupada's book distribution, Bhakti Yoga Club, and classes. The new schedule will be announced soon, this year we will also visit the Levy and Citrus County campuses. This program is a dynamic step forward for our preaching, please join in. Hari bol !

"So don't spoil the movement by manufacturing ideas. Don't do that. Go on in the standard way, keep yourself pure; then movement is sure to be successful. But if you want to spoil it by whimsical, then what can be done? It will be spoiled. If you manufacture whims and disagree and fight amongst yourself, then it will be another edition of these so-called movements. It will lose the spiritual strength. Always remember it. You cannot.... Now, actually, people are surprised: "What this Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra has got power that it is changing so quickly?"

And on the other hand, it is to be admitted, unless it has got power, how it is changing? So we have to keep that power. Don't make it an ordinary musical vibration. It is a different thing, spiritual.  Although it seems like musical vibration, but it is spiritual, completely. Mantrauśadhi-vaśa. Even, by mantra, the snakes can be charmed. So mantra is not ordinary sound vibration. So we have to keep
the mantra in potency, potent, by offenseless chanting, by remaining pure. If you pollute the mantra, then it will lose its effect."

Book Distribution Statistics Needed Here

Kavichandra swami's Hindu blow out

In 1979 the Gainesville temple invited the Hindu community mostly doctors and businessman from Jacksonville for a Shiva festival. Dronacharya the temple treasurer kept a very detailed mailing list. A beautiful flyer was made and mailed out. A sculptor from Atlanta made a beautiful Shiva Deity. Dozens of big Cadillacs and nice cars parked under the camphor trees. The donation box was filling up with large donations. 

Everything was going fine until the visiting Sannyasi swami and guru Kavichandra swami gave his lecture. He was criticizing Lord Shiva for smoking marijuana etc. Claimed his followers were ghost worshipers in the modes of ignorance. 

Suddenly one of the businessman from the Hindu community stood up and protested. He shouted out powerfully, "this is a place of great blasphemy! I am leaving now and everyone should leave here immediately and never return". And then everyone got up and left. That was the last big box of Laxmi the Gainesville temple ever got from the Hindu Community of Jacksonville. The temple leaders where devastated. The next day Kavichandra was asked to leave.

[PADA: Hee hee, that is the way to go. Many of ISKCON's gurus cannot even make a good show of being bogus Hindus. ys pd]

Has ISKCON Lost Romapada's Entire Zone?



PADA: Good question prabhu!

Latest is: Brooklyn temple has made it impossible for guests to come there who are not surrendered to the Romapada swami program there. Security guards have been hired and official ID cards will be needed to enter the building. Devotees who were outside trying to figure things out said that they were being filmed by people inside the temple (so they can identify dissenters)?

Ramabhadra has apparently notified people there that he is no longer officially part of ISKCON. Great, well he has not been in ISKCON all along, ISKCON does not promote the worship of fools as its acharyas, this was never part of ISKCON from the get go. Radhanath is the apparent actual smart guy here, his India program is not in the name of ISKCON from the get go, and we heard reports his NYC Bhakti Center is not surrendered to the GBC either.

Of course, since Ramabhadra works hand in glove with Romapada swami, that means Romapada is also leaving the GBC authority? Or what? Non-Romapada devotees in Brooklyn are going to use the hall across the street from the temple to make an independent program. They should have done that decades ago.

Meanwhile, Romapada has kicked out people from Chicago for years and years, those who did not surrender to his process, and apparently he has the entire place being run by his loyalists. Therefore he has de facto gained legal control of that property as well? Or what? At the same time, devotees told me that we need to know what other properties Romapada and / or his loyalists are legal signators of, to see if he has the ability to hi-jack other property as well, or he has de facto done so already?

Meanwhile Rocana das (Sampradaya Sun) and his evident lackeys like Ajit Krishna, Torben Nielsen, Kim Moller etc. are still saying we need to place the photos of these GBC folks like Romapada swami on our ISKCON altars and offer bhogha to them. OK so we still need to keep the ZONAL GURU system going, never mind these zonal gurus turn renegade and walk off with money, manpower, assets, and even buildings? And if we offer bhogha to deviants, then we will be eating deviant contaminated food stuffs? How is that helping? Why not just offer your food to Satan and get it over with?

Of course! That is -- when the Rocana and GBC messiahs are not caught "engaged in illicit sex" or other scandals? 

Why do we still need these Zonal Gurus when all this chaos is the result for decades now? Anwyay, here is Romapada's apparent schedule at least according to his web site. Yep, it appears that the GBC says he is a building hi-jacker, and at the same time, he is their messiah and keynote speaker all over ISKCON? There is more to this, but just wanted to get this part out for now. ys pd

Hindu Monks Protest Navadvip Area Slaughterhouse

Gunagrahi Swami needs your prayers and $$$

https://www.youcaring.com/gunagrahimaharaja-896517

PADA: OK so Gunagrahi swami -- and / or actually all the rest of us disciples really -- were told not to become premature diksha gurus, because it means we would be absorbing sins (like Jesus) and this would cause us to get sick, fall down or both.

Ooops! Gunagrahi violates this order, he takes the sins of many people and then presto chango, bingo bango, yep right exactly on target, he gets sick and falls down (watching pornos?). Of course what is worse, he has encouraged other neophytes to make pretend they too are another Jesus and they too can take other's sins, thus he is causing his own BFF's to, how did you guess, get sick, fall down, and die prematurely from taking sins. Why does he want others to get sick, fall down and die?

And now, we need more and more money to fix the mess he made by violating the orders of his guru?
Why didn't he follow the order? Where is all the money the GBC collects going, that they cannot take good care of another sexual predator's messiah's project member?

Why did Gunagrahi apparently encourage others to go ahead and get sick, fall down and die, ooops. as he is doing himself? What a great man does, others will follow, so we should all get sick, watch porno, take the sins of other by declaring ourselves another Jesus (who can absorb sins,) and then we will also die? Why does he not just say, hey this is bogus! We were never authorized to take all these sins? Not only that, taking said sins is causing us to fail, just as our guru warned us would happen?

Srila Prabhupada explains: A pure devotee does not accumulate the sins of his followers because he has sufficient BRAHMANA TEJYAS which burns off the sins of his followers and moreover he is thus NOT contaminated by the material energy because of this brahmana tejyas. However, if a neophyte takes these sins, and he does not have this tejyas, these accumulated sins will STICK onto him (he will carry them on the subtle body?) and he will suffer reactions now and he will have to carry these sins with him into the next life.

He cannot unshackle from these sins because he does not have the potency to remove them. So not only is Gungarahi causing his fellow devotees to fall down and die, he is taking them down to the lowest planets where they will have to take these sins with them to burn them off down there.

And that is why Srila Prabhupada says false gurus go to the lowest regions, they are over-burdened by all these sins which they cannot burn off, the sins will follow them into the next life. Never mind all the sins of banning, beating, molesting and murdering devotees in order to facilitate this false guru regime, and all the karma that entails.

Good luck dudes, seriously. Sulochana said he would not trade 10,000 years of his future bad karma for one second of their future bad karma, because that one second suffering will be far worse than his 10,000 years of suffering in the future. We agree! ys pd

Brooklyn Temple scam and Romapada (Update by Hanuman das)


Internet is buzzing these days about ISKCON Brooklyn temple, which will apparently be sold be rogue temple president Ramabhadra das. However, there is hidden truth which not many people are noticing.

Chronology


Saga involving Brooklyn temple is lasting for at least around three years now. Temple president Ramabhadra das, wants to sell the temple. Initial justification was that this building is very valuable, so they could build a new temple with that money. But not many people believe this story, because after all the protests, GBC decided to step in and prevent the sale. However, that is the moment when things became complicated.

The money involved

Back in may of 2014, newpaper reported on this story and they estimated that the whole building is worth 60 million dollars.

The shadow player


Akincana published at article on the issue back in December 2016, which says:

The ISKCON legal entity that holds the title for the temple building is officially known as the Bharati Center, Inc. Romapada Swami is the chairman of the board. As far as we know, the other board members are Ramabhadra Dasa, Satya Devi Dasi (Ramabhadra’s wife), Adi Deva Dasa (a New York devotee, not the artist), and Damodara Svarupa Dasa (Adi Deva’s son-in-law). 

If any changes to the board have been made since we last checked, they haven’t been publicly announced. If you have any investigative spirit, you will see that actually Romapada Swami is chairman of the board. In other words, there is no chance that Ramabhadra could sell this property without Romapada’s approval and cooperation.

In the regime newspaper, dandavats.com, you will usually not find any interesting incriminating stories, but this time they made a mistake, the published a full truth, even regime newspaper admits that Romapada Swami decided to sell against GBC decision. If you can’t read between the lines, Romadapada Swami is at least equally guilty as Ramabhadra. So, why was only Ramabhadra relieved from his post and Romapada stayed?

Answer is, because Romapda is “guru list” guru, therefore everything he does is perfect, and all complaints against him are blasphemy. But, due to stealing 30 million dollars from Prabhupada (I assume Romapada and Ramabhadra will split it 50% - 50% ), I am pronouncing that Romapada Swami is at the level of mil-prema. Mil-prema is when you are desiring to have million dollars, but if you have 30 million dollars, then you are mil prema maha-bhagavata.

Newest developments

Facebook post from Lokaguru das gives further credibility to my claims. Lokaguru writes:

On this Sunday night, July 23, Romapada Swami was not only the ISKCON GBC of the Brooklyn Temple, he was also still the Chairman of the Bharat Hill Corp. This means he was in fact the Topmost authority and thus had all power to see that Ramabhadra das complied with the GBC decision to remove him as president.


Conclusion

Romapada Swami is guru because he is a guru. Even if he is obviously trying to sell Prabhupada’s temple and cash in, he is still “guru list” guru. Which means he is pure devotee who is qualified to take us back home back to Godhead. I don’t think so. But who am I to think? Thinking is not allowed in ISKCON. I never asked GBC body permission to think and GBC body never granted me permission to think. But still, I think that poor Ramabhadra is not to be blamed, main player is Romapada Swami, who is trying to cash in.

And even the regime newspaper reported in that one of the “guru list” gurus is involved in the scam. They made big offense by publishing this fact.

For all of Romapada Swami disciples who don’t read Bhagavad-gita, I can say that Krishna says in the Bhagavad-gita: “If my devotees steals 30 mil or more, it doesn’t matter, you should still worship him.”

Due to very high level of mil prema, I will be marking Romapada Swami as red on my purified guru list. But the time I am done with him, only way Romapda mil Swami will get new disciples is to buy them. 😂

And I understand completely, it’s such a headache to try to earn money though being guru in ISKCON, first you must preach, then only few people decided to become your disciples, then you have answer all their stupid emails, and in the end, they give you few hundred dollars once per year.


So, it’s better to cash in on the temple, and once you have to money, you no longer need to be guru, to initiate disciples and take money from them.

Jesus is not with these guys (hee hee!)


Appearance of Lord Balarama (Aug 7th)

Appearance of Lord Balarama, Monday, August 7, 2017 in California (fast till noon)

Who is Lord Balarama?

The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, is the fountainhead of all incarnations. Lord Balarama is His second body. They are both one and the same identity. They differ only in form. Balarama is the first bodily expansion of Krishna, and He assists in Lord Krishna's transcendental pastimes. He is the source of the entire spiritual world and is the adi-guru, the original spiritual master.

He assumes five other forms to serve Lord Krishna. He Himself helps in the pastimes of Lord Krishna, and He does the work of creation in four other forms called the catur-vyuha (four armed) forms known as Vasudeva, Sankarshana, Pradyumna and Anirudha. He executes the orders of Lord Krishna in the work of creation, and in the form of Lord Sesa He serves Sri Krishna in various ways. In all the forms He tastes the transcendental bliss of serving Krishna. No one can approach Krishna without first getting the mercy of Baladeva.

Descent of Balarama

Whenever Krishna appears in the material world, He is accompanied by His associates and paraphernalia. Five thousand years ago when Krishna descended into the material world, He was first preceded by Baladeva. Only after Baladeva give His mercy did Krishna descend, such is the intimate relationship between Krishna and Baladeva.

When Baladeva appeared as the seventh child in the womb of Devaki, she could understand that this was a divine child and this made her all the more concerned about His safety. Even Kamsa could sense His potency and he became fearful, thinking he may have been tricked by the prophecy that he will be slain only by the eight child of Devaki. At this time Krishna instructed Yogamaya, His internal potency, to transfer the unborn child from the womb of Devaki to that of Rohini, one of the other wives of Vasudeva, who was hiding from Kamsa in the house of Nanda Maharaja in Gokul.

In this way Balarama was born in Gokul under the protection of Nanda Maharaja. Garga Muni the venerable kulguru (family priest) of the Yadu dynasty revealed to Rohini that the child she was carrying was indeed that of her husband Vasudeva. At the time of the name-giving ceremony he named the child Rama, one who gives all pleasures. Referring to the immense strength of the child, Garga Muni predicted that He will also be known as Balarama (bala meaning strength). Since He was forcibly attracted from the womb of Devaki to that of Rohini, He was also be called Sankarshana. As the son of Rohini He was known as Rohini-nandan and as the elder brother of Krishna He was also called Douji.

The form of Lord Balarama

Powerful Lord Balarama is sixteen years old, full of the luster of youth and has a fair complexion the color of crystal. He wears blue garments and a garland of forest flowers. His handsome hair is tied in a graceful topknot. Splendid earrings adorn His ears and His neck is splendidly decorated with garlands of flowers and strings of jewels. Splendid armlets and bracelets ornament Douji's graceful and very strong arms and His feet are decorated with splendid jeweled anklets.

Lord Balarama's beauty is enhanced by the earrings touching His cheeks. His face is decorated with tilaka made from musk, and His broad chest is ornamented with a garland of gunja. Balarama’s voice is very grave and His arms are very long, touching His thighs

The splendor of Lord Balarama's transcendental form eclipses many millions of glistening rising moons, and the slightest scent of His boundless strength is sufficient to destroy many armies of demons. Although He knows the supernatural power of His younger brother, Krishna, still, out of love for Him, He never leaves Krishna alone in the forest even for a moment. Balarama is Sri Krishna's dearest friend and is a great reservoir of the nectar mellows of many kinds of transcendental pastimes.

Specific Pastimes of Lord Balarama

Balarama slays Dhenukasura

Dhenukasura was a powerful demon who had assumed the form of an ass. With his demon friends he was occupying Talavana, one of the twelve forests of Vrindavana. Out of fear of these demons no one could approach Talavana and enjoy the numerous flowers and fruits in the forest. Balarama, induced by His cowherd friends, entered the forest desiring to kill the demons. He began shaking the fruit trees, making a big noise. Dhenuka, furious at the intrusion, attacked Balarama with his rear legs, but Balarama easily picked him up by his legs and whirled him around until he died. As the other demon friends of Dhenuka rushed to attack, Krishna and Balarama picked them up and threw them on trees, killing them. Soon the forest was free of all demons, and it appeared that the bent trees were being directed by Balarama to pay obeisances to Krishna.

Balarama kills Pralambasura

Once when Krishna and Balarama were playing with the cowherd boys, a demon named Pralamba entered their midst, disguised as a cowherd boy. Understanding the invincible potency of Krishna, he instead decided to abduct Balarama. At the end of the game, as the losing party he was supposed to carry Balarama on his shoulders. Carrying the Lord on his shoulders he ran swiftly, but Balarama realizing the true identity of demon began to make himself heavier and heavier. Unable to bear the weight, the demon assumed his original form which was like a huge dark effulgent cloud, decorated with golden ornaments. Balarama then bought His fist down the head of the demon splitting it into two and causing him to give up his life.

Balarama glorified by Krishna

As the elder brother of Krishna, Balarama was the object of His love and respect. Once when walking in the forest of Vrindavana, Krishna observed the trees bending down as if paying obeisances. He glorified the lotus feet of Balarama as being the object of devotion even for the demigods. He said that the trees, which were impersonalists in previous life times, witnessing the personal form of Balarama were now praying for His devotion. At other times when Balarama would get tired by playing, He would lie down the lap of one of the cowherd boys and Krishna would personally massage His feet, fan Him and give Him service. Such was the sweet reciprocation of love between Krishna and Balarama.

Yamuna devi chastised

Once Lord Balarama, Who was at the time living in Dwarka, came back to stay in Vrindavana for two months. At this time He enjoyed pastimes with His gopi friends (who were different from the gopis of Krishna). Enjoying such pastimes on the bank of Yamuna at Rama-ghata, the Lord summoned Yamuna so that He could sport in the waters. When Yamuna devi did not respond. Lord Balarama took up His favorite weapon, His plow, and began to drag Yamuna in a hundred streams. Understanding the position of Balarama, Yamuna devi personally appeared and offered her obeisances to the Lord with many prayers in His glorification. Thus appeased the Lord entered and bathed in the waters of the river.

Kauravas chastised

Samba, the darling son of Jambavati and Krishna, kidnapped Laksmana the daughter of Duryodhana from the assembly were she was supposed to choose her husband. The furious Kauravas after a prolonged fight, finally arrested Samba by sending in six of their greatest warriors. When the Yadavas heard of this they prepared for battle but Lord Balarama pacified them, preferring to find a peaceful solution. However when He requested the Kauravas to return Samba and Laksmana, the Kauravas responded by insulting Him and the Yadava dynasty. Understanding them to be ignorant in their false prestige, Balarama took His plow and began to drag Hastinapura into the Ganges. The terrified Kauravas now surrendered to the lotus feet of Balarama, begging for His mercy. They immediately returned Samba and Laksmana and had them married ceremoniously with many opulent gifts.

Balarama marries Revati

In Satya yuga there was a King named Raivata whose daughter Revati was excellent in all respects. Unable to find a match suitable for her, the king took her to the court of Brahma for his advise. After waiting for some time when the king met with Brahma, he was shocked to learn that in the short time he spent in the Brahmaloka, millions of years had already passed on Earth and at the time Dvapara yuga was concluding. However Lord Brahma informed King Raivata that present at this time was Lord Balarama Who was more than qualified to be the husband of Revati.

King Raivata returned and approached Balarama to accept Revati as His wife. However Revati belonged to an earlier yuga when people were much larger physically. So Lord Balarama placed His plow on her head until she shrunk to an appropriate size and accepted her as His wife.

Balarama and Mahabharata

In general Balarama was equally affectionate to both the Pandavas and the Kauravas. He accepted both Duryodhana and Bhima as His disciples in the art of mace-war. As a teacher He appreciated the superior technique of Duryodhana as opposed to the raw strength of Bhima. At the time of Mahabharata, He refused to take sides and instead went on an extended pilgrimage to the holy places. In the battle between Bhima and Duryodhana, He became angry at Bhima for killing Duryodhana by trickery, but was appeased by Sri Krishna.

Killing of Romaharshana

Towards the end of Dvapara yuga thousands of sages assembled on the banks of Naimyasharana to perform a thousand year yajna in an effort to reverse the onset of Kali yuga. They appointed as their leader Romaharshana, one of the main disciple of Vyasadeva, who was also present when Sukadeva Goswami narrated Srimad Bhagavatam to King Parikshit.

When Lord Balarama entered the assembly, understanding Him to be the Supreme Personality of Godhead, all present rose to offer Him respect. However Romaharshana, proud at occupying the position of the leader did not get up. Lord Balarama could understand that even though Romaharshana was a an expert Vedantist, he had not yet realized these teachings. Considering him unqualified to lead the ceremony, Balarama touched him with a blade of grass causing him to die. He then instituted Suta, the son of Romaharshana as the leader of the assembly and continued with His pilgrimage.

Mercy of Lord Balarama

Lord Balarama exemplifies the service attitude to Krishna. His only mission is to please Krishna by rendering service to Him, whether it is in the creation of the material worlds, maintaining the spiritual world or as His personal paraphernalia.

Lord Balarama is the eternal companion of Sri Krishna. He came as Lakshmana with Rama and later as Nityananda Prabhu with Caitanya Mahaprabhu. He is the original spiritual master, and any one desiring to make spiritual progress must first get the mercy of Lord Balarama.

All glories to Lord Balarama !!
