Hare Krishna (?) Scam-Kirtana Expose (Kitv.com)

GBC takes their guru to -- court?

[PADA: Wow! Perhaps the most unpopular person in the universe, Jayadvaita swami the book changer, is now the main hero and "savior" of the Brooklyn temple sale fiasco. So this is amazing, the GBC first appointed Romapada as their guru -- then they found out much later, that the guru does not need to listen to the GBC because the guru is independent of ecclesiastical bodies. 

So now the GBC has had to go to court to get the legal justice system to contain and control their bogus gurus, gurus which they themselves appointed. Doesn't the GBC know, gurus are not controlled by ecclesiastical bodies, or courts, and so on and so forth, and guru is controlled and dictated to -- by God? The guru is getting dictation from God, not Jayadvaita swami? 

Now the GBC is saying they need to use the courts, to check what God is dictating and doing? Why not admit, their gurus are bogus and they are not getting dictation from God? 

Meanwhile, the GBC has launched YET another multi-million dollar legal problem, because their members are being charged with crimes in the Karnataka court, which the GBC will presumably pay possibly millions for their legal defenses. Why is the GBC always figuring out ways to waste millions more money on lawyers, court cases and -- now, taking their own guru to court? 

And the GBC / Rocana / Torben Nielsen crowd are still saying, we simply need to have better rules and regulations for our acharyas to contain and control them, and this will fix things! Fine except, if you have to fix your own acharya with legislation, rules, censure, removal for deviations, and now -- lawsuits -- then he is not an acharya. ys pd]      

GBC "vigorously opposes" the Brooklyn Sale


For immediate release
February 18, 2017
Contact: Jayadvaita Swami

GBC to NY Attorney General's Office:
The GBC "vigorously opposes" the Brooklyn Sale

On January 3, the GBC Executive Committee notified the New York State Attorney General's office that the GBC "vigorously opposes the [Bharati] Center's petition seeking approval of the Sale" of the Radha­Govinda temple in Brooklyn. The Executive Committee's attorney, Daniel Alcott, wrote to the Attorney General's office on the GBC's behalf.

The GBC's move dramatically boosts the likelihood that the State will disapprove the sale. Without State approval, the sale cannot go through. Mr. Alcott wrote to the AG's office that the GBC is the "governing ecclesiastical body" of ISKCON and the Bharati Center. And: "The ISKCON GBC is convinced that the sale does not promote the purposes of the Center or the interests of its members."

By narrowly focusing on "the purposes of the Center" and "the interests of its members," the GBC prudently offers strong reasons for disallowing the sale, while at the same time affording the prospective Buyer no grounds on which to sue the temple. (Last year in Mayapur, the NY leaders had raised the alarm to the GBC that if the sale were blocked the Buyer could file a multi­million­dollar lawsuit, and so the GBC proceeded with caution.)

Mr. Alcott's letter also asks that the EC be notified if, as expected, the question of whether the State should allow the sale goes to a local Brooklyn court. The letter reserves the right for the GBC to appear, through its EC, in any such proceeding.

Eric Weiss, an attorney representing congregational members opposing the sale, says that the GBC's letter is "a game­changer." Now the State will see a pending sale opposed not only from below by a large segment of the congregation but also from above by the highest body of ISKCON's religious hierarchy. Under the circumstances, the chances seem high that the State will disallow the sale.

Vijaya Ekadasi (Feb 22 USA)

Yudhisthira Maharaj said, “Oh Lord Sri Krishna, O glorious son of Vasudeva, please be merciful to me and describe the Ekadasii that occurs during the dark fortnight of the month of Phalguna (February-March)"

Lord Sri Krishna replied, “Oh Yudhisthira, Oh king of kings, gladly I shall tell you about this great fast, known as Vijaya Ekadasii. Whoever observes it certainly achieves success in this life and the next. All the sins of one who fasts on this Ekadasii and hears its sublime glories are eradicated.

“Narada Muni once asked lord Brahma, who sits on a lotus flower about the Vijaya Ekadasii. Sri Narada said, ‘Oh best of all the demigods, kindly tell me the merit one can achieve by faithfully observing Vijaya Ekadasii.’

“Narada’s great father then replied, ‘My dear son, this oldest of fasting days is pure, and it nullifies all sins. I have never revealed this to anyone until today, but you can understand beyond any doubt that this Ekadasii bestows the result indicated by its name… (Vijaya meaning Victory).

“When Lord Rama was exiled to the forest for fourteen years, He, the goddess Sita, and His divine brother Lakshmana stayed at Panchavati as mendicants. Mother Sita was then kidnapped by the demon Ravana, and Lord Rama seemingly became bewildered like an ordinary man by distress. While searching for His beloved consort, the Lord came upon the dying Jatayu and thereafter killed His enemy Kabandha.. The great devotee-vulture Jatayu returned to Vaikuntha after telling Rama how His dear Sita had been abducted by Ravana.

“ ‘Later, Lord Rama and Sugriva, the king of the monkeys, became friends. Together they amassed a grand army of monkeys and bears and sent HanumAnji his minister to Sri LankA, where he was able to see Janaki (Srimati Sita devi) in an Ashoka grove garden. He delivered Lord Rama’s message and showed the ring proving his authenticity for rendering such great service to the Supreme Lord Sri Rama.“ ‘With the help of Sugriva, Lord Rama proceeded toward Sri Lanka. 

Upon arriving at the shore of the ocean with the army of monkeys, He could understand that the water was uncommonly deep and hostile. Thus He said to Lakshmana, “Oh son of Sumitra, how can We earn enough merit to be able to cross this vast ocean, the unfathomable abode of Varuna deva? I can see no easy way to cross it, teeming as it is with sharks and other ferocious aquatics.”

“ ‘Lakshmana replied, “Oh best of all beings, Oh origin of all the devas, Oh primal personality, the great sage Bakad Albhya lives on an island just four miles from here. Oh Raghava, he has seen many BrahmAs come and go, so aged and wise is he. Let us go to him, take his darshan (audience) and ask him how We can safely reach Our goal.”

“ ‘So Rama and Lakshmana proceeded to the humble Ashrama of the incomparable Bakad Albhya Muni. Approaching him, the two Lords paid Their respectful obeisances to him as if he were a second Vishnu. Bakad Albhya could immediately understand, however, that Sri Rama was actually the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who for His own reasons had appeared on the Earth and was enacting just like a human being.

“ ‘ “Rama, “ said BakadAlbhya, “Oh best of the human beings, why have You come to my lowly abode?”

“ ‘The Lord replied, “Oh great, twice born brahmin, I have come here to the ocean shore with My phalanx of monkey and bear warriors in order to cross the sea and conquer LankA and its demon horde headed by Ravana. Oh greatest of sages, please be merciful unto Me and please tell Me how I can cross this vast ocean. That is why I have come to your Ashrama today.”

“ ‘The sage said, “Oh Lord Sri Rama, I shall tell you of the most exalted of all fasts, observing which You will surely conquer Ravana and be eternally glorified. Kindly now listen with full attention.

“ ‘ “On the day before Ekadasii, fashion a water pot of gold or silver, or even copper. Even clay will do if these metals are unavailable. Fill the pot with pure water and then decorate it nicely with mango leaves. Cover it and place it near a holy altar upon a mound of seven grains (the seven grains are barley, wheat, rice, corn, chickpeas, kukani, and dahl or peas). Now take Your morning bath, decorate the water pot with flower garlands and sandalwood paste, and inn the concave lid atop the pot place there the barley, pomegranate, and coconut. 

Now with great love and devotion worship the water pot Deity form and offer Him incense, sandalwood paste, flowers, a ghee lamp, and a plate of sumptuous foods. Remain there awake that night beside this sacred pot. On top of the lid filled with barley, etc., place a golden murthy of Lord Sri Narayana.

“ ‘ “When Ekadasii dawns, take Your morning bath and then decorate the water pot with fine sandalwood paste and garlands. Then worship the pot again with first class incense, lamps, sandalwood paste and flowers dipped in sandalwood paste, and then devoutly/devotedly place many kinds of cooked food, pomegranate, and coconut before the water pot. Then remain awake over night.

“ ‘ “When the Dwadasi dawns, take the water pot to the bank of a holy river, or even to the shore of a small pond. After worshipping it again properly, Oh King of kings, offer it with all the aforementioned ingredients to a pure hearted brahmin, expert in the Vedic sciences. If You and Your military commanders observe the Vijaya Ekadasii in this way, You will surely be victorious in every way.”

“” ‘Lord Sri Ramachandra Bhagavan, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, did just as Bakad Albhya Muni instructed, and thus He conquered all demoniac forces. Similarly, anyone who observes the Vijaya Ekadasii in this way will always be victorious in this mortal world, and after leaving this world he/she will reside forever in the anxiety free realm of the Kingdom of God known as the Vaikunthas.”

“ ‘Oh Narada, my son, from this history you can understand why one should observe this Ekadasii fast properly, strictly following the rules and regulations. This fast is powerful enough to eradicate all one’s sinful reactions, even the most abominable ones.”

Lord Sri Krishna concluded, “Oh Yudhisthira, anyone who reads or hears this history will attain the same great merit as that which is earned by performing a horse sacrifice on days of yore.”

Thus ends the narration of the glories of Phalguna-krsna Ekadasii or Vijaya Ekadasii, from the Skanda Purana.

Tips on Book Distribution (video)

Prabhupada is his own successor

PADA: Yes, its official, the mad rush to artificially concoct a "successor to Prabhupada" has been a totally depressing, criminal, scandalous and devastating failure, he is his own successor. Correct. ys pd

Prabhupada You Are Your Own Successor


Prabhupada you are your own successor
you live within your teachings
if we could carry them out
if we could formulate them precisely
then there will be no doubt
of what to do and how to do it
the mahajans make it clear
the mind of your sincere follower
close to your heart and near
the symptom will be mercy
distributed to one and all
the establishment challenged
the scientists no longer call
call the shots cover the soul
bring society to its knees
crying mothers weeping child
the demonic minds that feed
the social critic, the piercing eye
crooked and rascals, left high and dry
maneuvering of the political mind
matched and defeated with a heart that shines
the artists once awoken
the prophets words spoken
deep into the hearts of men
an influence they wield
mind and hearts healed
distributed knowledge but when
practical in every way
whatever place you stand
the place you find you'll not return
but always wish to stay
a political system broken,
broken but to reform
you have told us of these things
in love and hope conform
on every plain we stand
within and with out
Lord's Lilas in our heart
Mahaprabhu's no doubt
seeing all as spirit souls
selfishness declined
you the acarya of the world
so regal and refined
this will come to pass
the order from time ago
we are to carry out the task
bestowed glory that will show.
fearless in your service
a faith as staunch can be
without it we lose the way
although it will come again, just see
another soul will say again
to show what will be
the wisdom already let loose
Kali's domain set free
the sankirtana movement
it's destined sadhus say
forever the patient optimist
that's Prabhupada's way.

Aindra's Book Online

We want original books! (Edmonton Canada)

Good choice!

Art of Satsvarupa Das Goswami still promoted by ISKCON?

PADA: Yep, from the same person who said: "I have to battle constantly with doubts that Krishna is a myth"; "The more I chant the drier it gets"; "I am known as the guru of (psychotropic) pills"; and the author of Sanitarium (a sex novel) we find ISKCON is still promoting Satsvarupa and his crazy writings and art. Of course our art and writings are banned! Figures? You mean to say no one on the GBC has figured out that his writings and art -- are whack, and not fit for public consumption?     

This is SDG's future life, very lifelike!

This art frightens little children!

Gainesville Refugees Need Support


PADA: It is amazing really, Jayadvaita swami (Jay Israel) says that his GBC gurus are many times engaged in illicit sex, i.e. God's successors and gurus are many times -- debauchees. And this is the person the GBC hand selects to be their editor, the guy who thinks God's successors are worse than the village drunk! ys pd

Capitalism Will Starve Humanity Unless It Changes (Forbes Magazine)

Prayers to the Dust of Vraja (Kirtana Video)

Krishna will help the sincere (SP Walk April 1973)

"Kṛṣṇa is there, within. Sarvasya cāhaṁ hṛdi sanniviṣṭho mattaḥ smṛtir jñānam apohanaṁ ca [Bg. 15.15]. Kṛṣṇa is dictating: "Now you go forward. Now you come back. Here is your food." He's giving intelligence. Sarvasya cāhaṁ hṛdi sanniviṣṭho mattaḥ smṛtir jñānam apohanaṁ ca [Bg. 15.15]. He's giving direction in every living entity, but when a human being, He gives direction, if he surrenders, that: "Go this way. You'll come to Me." Dadāmi buddhi-yogaṁ taṁ yena mām upayānti te. And that is human intelligence. 

So far these lower animals are concerned, they are given, being given intelligence how to eat, how to sleep, how to mate, how to defend. But a human being, if he engages himself in the service of the Lord, then Lord will give intelligence how to come back to home, back to Godhead. 

This is stated in the Bhagavad-gītā. That is the condition. Teṣāṁ satata-yuktānāṁ bhajatāṁ prīti-pūrvakam [Bg. 10.10]. "Only to those who are engaged in devotional service with love and faith, I give him intelligence how to come back to home, back to Godhead." Therefore, after coming to human form of body, we must awaken our intelligence about understanding the Supreme Lord. And if we take up the process sincerely, with love, then Lord within will give you dictation: "You come this way, come this way, come this way." Otherwise, not." -Srila Prabhupada Morning Walk—April 20, 1973, Los Angeles

Lord Chaitanya's Moon is Rising

[PADA: Well, what can we say, we have made more and more and more really solid connections from the African continent. We are making good progress there among an ever growing body of people who are rejecting the GBC's gurus and their "voted in" acharyas and alleged messiahs. 

One of the "renegade" ladies from there just wrote to PADA to say, what kind of religion votes in conditioned souls as their eternal parampara gurus? And then the GBC's leaders make false claims these gurus are as pure as God -- who can absorb your sins like Jesus -- because they are diksha gurus? 

Yet when she asked the leaders about the sadhana status of a particular GBC guru, another GBC said to her the GBC "cannot vouch for his sadhana." What! He is as pure as Jesus, but he may not even be able to perform basic sadhana? And apparently no one on the GBC even bothered to check if this guy is a basic sadhaka, before they voted him in as the next successor to God? Hee hee! ys pd]

Aindra Dasa Harinama Revolution (Video)

PADA: Aindra das pretty much sums things up here, if we are distributing millions of books to invite people to join our "Lord Chaitanya's Harinama Samkirtana Movement," but then we do not have working examples of the samkirtana process going on, its not going to work. That was the first thing the GBC did in 1978, they started removing the samkirtana devotees ... and we lost many of the best book distributors and harinama types. OK then they started having everyone selling oil paintings, candles and other garbage and they called that "samkirtana." No wonder Aindra was not popular with these leaders, but then again neither is PADA popular with these guys either  .... ys pd
