who are they kidding?

 The fraud in ISKCON is that ISKCON Gurus and sannyasis are free from sex desires is very clear from Sivarama Swamis audio.

 Some maybe free, who they are are not known.Because in ISKCON what sannyasi is not constantly surrounded with flattering female disciples?

Taking service from them for cooking ,cleaning ,even sewing their Deities dresses etc.So far I have seen maybe Bhakti Vikas Swami only stands out

as a sannyasi without material desires and mostly he does not…

When Barbarianism rocks ISKCON! Another scandal

Srila Prabhupada wrote:   Be blessed by Kṛṣṇa. Just as you have already understood the benefits of this Kṛṣṇa Consciousness Movement, try to realize and assimilate it more and more and distribute it to the suffering humanity. Our movement is the greatest gift to the human race. They may not immediately appreciate it, but time will come and history will give evidence that this movement saved the human society from being fallen into barbarianism.   [Letter to: Jayasri 13 November, 1969]    …

how much of Ramachandra Puris mentality do I have?

PAMHO AGTSP

 The question is how much of Ramachandra Puris mentality do we have? Ramachandra Puri symbolizes a materialistic spiritualist, with impersonal traits, selfish motives for false prestige, unwilling to take to Lord Caitanyas sankirtana movement of public chanting, and chanting one lahk daily as ordered by Lord Caitanya etc.Always harboring jealous and envious feelings towards the real followers of Lord Caitanya.Do I think like Ramachandra Puri or do I…
