Braja Sevika writes on Dandavats.com

Thank you for FINALLY pointing out the errant use of the word “senior” in relation to Narayan Maharaja. While he may be older in years, he is the same generation as all Prabhupada’s disciples: they are, in fact, peers.





This is not a fact, Narayana Maharaja joined Gaudiya math in 1946 or so, the disciples of Srila Prabhupada joined ISKCON in minimum 1966, so there is many years of seniority of Narayana… Continue

instructions from Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Prabhupada

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura



(1) Obtaining the shelter of the lotus feet of a genuine guru is, without a doubt, a matter of both great fortune and great dilemma for the baddha-jiva (conditioned soul). If, however, a fortunate soul has a sincere longing and ardency to attain a true guru, he does so by the mercy of Sri Krishna.



(2) The baddha-jiva is extremely insignificant; it is impossible for him to realise the magnitude of Sri Guru.



(3) One who,… Continue

insulting remarks to a grhastha

PAMHO

Kamsahanta Dasa Prajapati Arjuna ki-jay!



my reponse:



Ouch Kamsahanta calling Arjuna (who is a very nice devotee from Germany) a prajapati is an insult, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura also had many children ....there is no harm for a devotee to be a grhastha and have children even many , this is done according to sastra, one sannyasi once kept telling grhastha's when they had children they had become "busy " shortly after that he got busy himself in… Continue

why Krsna becomes Gauranga

 



Why Krsna Became Gauranga Mahaprabhu

by Sri Srimad Gour Govinda Swami Maharaja

Two Kinds of Maya

Two mayas are there. One is Maha-maya, that is to say, the illusionary energy, and the other is Yoga-maya. Yoga means that which gives you an opportunity to go to Krsna. That is Yoga-maya. That which prevents, that is viyoga-maya or Maha-maya. Yoga means union. Viyoga means separation. So there are two mayas.

Viyoga-maya or Maha-maya is working in the…

Dom or No DOM, and is someone trying to be more than Srila Prabhupada?

PAMHO

GBC Resolution of 1975 number 5 states:

“5) Resolved: The selection of GBC members is that Srila Prabhupada will nominate, and if there is a discrepancy, His Grace will change him. There will be no elections, and the present GBC member will remain.”











Akruranath accused me that I wanted to take legal actions against ISKCON this is very false and



offensive,he wrote:

"Why make waves unnecessarily and speak of legal… Continue

GBC Resolution of 1975 number 5 states:

“5) Resolved: The selection of GBC members is that Srila Prabhupada will nominate, and if there is a discrepancy, His Grace will change him. There will be no elections, and the present GBC member will remain.”

Akruranath Prabhu patiently explained this, and I thank him for that where as some others wanted to stuff it down my throat without providing the evidence.So I can accept that GBC resolution, but the question remains… Continue

They will be punished to become a sudra.

.Prabhupada, Geneva, June 4, 1974:There are twelve authorities mentioned in the sastra. One of them is Yamaraja. Balir vaiyasakir vayam. This is stated in the Srimad-Bhagavatam. Yamaraja is one of the GBC of Krsna. Yes. As we have got twelve GBC’s, similarly Krsna has got GBC’s. Now,



svayambhur naradah sambhuh kumarah kapilo manuh prahlado janako bhismo balir vaiyasakir vayam [SB 6.3.20]



That twelve men are authorized to preach Krsna consciousness. So we have to follow.… Continue

"Anything you do will be wrong"

PAMHO

AGTSP

There is 4 defects of a conditioned soul.So it is not surprising when one sannyasi that asked Srila Prabhupada, how do we know when we are right, and Srila Prabhupada laughed and said :"You will always be wrong".In Srila Prabhupada’s words:



A conditioned soul in the material world has the disqualification of cheating. He has four disqualifications: he is sure to commit mistakes, he is sure to be illusion ed, he is prone to cheat others, and his senses are imperfect.… Continue

more on the DOM

PAMHO



AGTSP







The world will never accept ISKCON without the DOM by Srila Prabhupada, it is a legal document that was created and signed by Srila Prabhupada, those who do not accept it are asat.Because they want to use ISKCON for their own personal money making and so on.

Liberty and freedom is what democracy stands for, and it exposes corruption.With a totalitarian system KC will never spread ,and the…

21. Vyomasura (the demon in the sky) - associating with thieves and other rascals, and with people who put themselves forward as avataras,and pseudo devotees.



This is mentioned by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura in his Caitanya siksamrta ,of course the killing of Vyomasura happened in Krsnas lila even the cave is there in Kamyavan,( I keep one stone from there in my bead bag, praying to not associate with such persons or to become a pseudo…

please keep me out of institutional politics

PAMHO

AGTSP

I am not interested to hear about Ritviks ,Narayana Maharaja or any attempt to water down Srila Prabhupadas teachings, books , instructions etc.To me they are self effulgent just like Srila Prabhupada and his position is for now and all times to come.It hurts me to see the fighting among devotees of different camps and it is an anartha:

It is the 11 one:

11. Extinguishing the Forest Fire - inter-communal discord among Vaishnavas.

discussions with Basu Ghosh Prabhu about Srila Prabhupadas DIRECTION OF MANAGEMENT

PAMHO

AGTSP

Well the system of absolute authority only works if their is no corruption, and as most leaders will eventually get corrupt as they are not free from personal motivation.We have seen this in many past leaders and even present absolute power corrupts.So much so temple presidents and GBC's do with temple laxmi as they please, they only pretend to care about other devotees,. but are mostly selfish. Ravindra Svarupa keeps a tight grip over ISKCON Philadelphia for years and… Continue
