Correcting ISKCON’s Guru System

What you say about Iskcon is only partially true as you have only touched on one side. There are two aspects to Iskcon which are going on side by side. One side which you describe is the external, or materialistic side. This side is full of superficial members who are not serious and Krishna gives them superficial gurus (the cheaters and the cheated). Bhaktisiddhanta Maharaja calls them dupes and underdupes. This side makes up the majority. They mechanically follow the temple programs, principles etc. just for show and to be accepted in the community as “good devotees”.

There is however an internal Iskcon which is for the serious student. Those who are truly serious are allowed entry into this Iskcon. Through prayer and dedication this true Iskcon is revealed. Those who are happy in the external Iskcon circus can stay there. But for those that want the real deal, that is also available. There is nothing lacking in Srila Prabhpada’s movement…the only lacking is with us.

This is not a complex issue. It is actually quite clear.

There are two things here which should be understood:
One is the institutional (material side) the other is the
pure devotee and disciple side (spiritual side). The institution
does not deliver the disciple, it is the pure devotee spiritual
master who delivers the disciple. The institution is to attract
people to come to a place where they have a good chance to come in contact
with a pure devotee and thus surrender. Through surrender to such
a pure devotee, one gets the chance to serve him and thus carefully tread the
path back to Krishna. The institution is only the vehicle for this to happen.

The institution is necessary and the regular gurus are also necessary for the upkeep of this vehicle and to spread Mahaprabhu’s message, but these regular
kanishta and madhyama gurus should know their position, be honest and should also be searching for the guidance of a pure devotee, uttama guru themselves…otherwise they are simply cheating themselves and their disciples.

In 1996 Srila Prabhupada appeared to me in a lucid dream with a beaming blissful smile telling me with his own mouth that I did the right thing considering my initiation by Tamal Krishna Goswami, ritvikly performed on his behalf. He indicated for me to speak more about my journey and realization and results of choosing this course. He also indicated to me that I should record what I say and these videos are a result of my execution of Srila Prabhupada’s personal instruction to me. I spent 5 years in the early eighties within the walls of iskcon, from the first day I got his book in 1980 and in two minutes I went down to the temple and surender my life to his mission.

Here are some links to the latest videos I made about making Srila Prabhupada my life and soul and eternal Guru without any one else in between. I humbly present these ideas which i believe reconcile many ideas that have lead us away from the idea of just following the instructions of Srila Prabhupada to give diksha on his behalf. I lovingly present these ideas wholy inspired by my relationship with Srila Prabhupada before the assembled vaishnavas as a contribution to help us all reconcile this core issue. Just as the Christians always hold Jesus as their corner stone with no one else in the way that continues to give so many enthusiasm to build churches all over the world to worship God like wise we also need to hold Srila Prabhupada as the true cornerstone to build the iskcon temple on. The reason we should do this outside of all other considerions and arguments against this is simple because both these unique and proven all powerful personalities Jesus and Srila Prabhupada were inspired by God(Krishna)to say so. Jesus spoke it into eternal law and Srila Prabhupa in the hearing of Gauridas pandita das and others both spoke it and to make sure we understood clearly wrote how he wanted ISKCON to continue in sighned document on July 9th, 1977.
Hare Krishna your servant,

Gurukrpa speaks on ISKCON History

Thanks for finally sharing this after 30 years. Actually you would not of been a fault finder for sticking up for the truth and the pure devotee Srila Prabhupada. Some devotees may have listened and saved them a lot of heart ache. Krishna das kaviraja stuck up for minikatan rama das who chastised a Brahman for disrespecting Nityananda. Nityananda came in dream and awarded him vrndavan for sticking up for his true devotee. So many devotees don’t undertand these subtle truths and are bambosled by others telling them to shut their mouth about telling the truth because its offensive. Its the oposite actually. Anyway I met you in mayapur and you shared what you did for Srila Prabhupada. So much sincere service! Hare Krishna

Organized Religion — Demons preaching from the Pulpits

In my observation iskcon and personal experience living withing the organization for five years has become just like the churches discribed in Bhaktisidanta Saraswatis article. What is needed is the unconventional preceptor teaching real vaishnavism out side the box cut by Material motivated motivated leaders speculations.

We have developed a unconventional working prototype for vaishnavism that has worked to deliver the ultimate result of Krishna prema. As unbelievable as it sounds we have done it and have practical examples of persons manifesting the symptoms of pure devotion to Krishna confirmed by the bonafide devotional scriptures. So like the author of the article says. The church of ISKCON is not interested. Like the author the article says. There has never been an example of a religious organization That would work to deliver the masses due to natural by product of religion which is corruption. So the real work for real advancement in vaishnavism beyond the neophyte stage will be naturally done in more small groups under the guidance and shelter of a genuinely empowered person genuinely linked to the real disciplic succession

Who Is Representing Srila Prabhupada Now?

They are both right and wrong. Yes you have to hear here the bhagavatam from a bona fide spiritual master. But not from one who is pretending to be be bona fide. A real spiritual master has pure devotion for Krishna Awakened in their heart. hear from them that’s perfect

    Hare krishna Prabhuji.,Dandvat Pranaam
    May i know about the author of the book”Srila Prabhupada Lilamrita As It Is” named mukund das prabhu.Had he any personal association with Srila Prabhupada.

    • This book is a compilation of direct quotes from Srila Prabhupada speaking about his own life. The author is Srila Prabhuapda, all Mukunda did was compile the quotes and he did a good job of it. He wrote a bit of rubbish on the last 2 pages but apart from that he did not write a single word in the book. It is a collection of Prabhupada quotes and the author of this book is Srila Prabhuapda.

    Prabhu Madhudvisa Dasa.Is Jagannath Krishna himself or is just an expansion of Krishna like Vishnu,Rama etc.In Iskcon lectures I heard that Jagannath is Krishna himself,they have proved this by saying a story from Skanda purana.Is this true or Iskcon lectures are just bogus?I found no video Prabhupad talking aboyt Lord Jagannath.Oh Prabhu kindly answer my doubts.Hare Krishna

    • Yes. Lord Jagannatah is Krishna Himself. It is Jagannatha [Krishna] Balarama and Krishna’s sister Subhadra.

      So Jagannatha is deity form of Krishna. He is representation of Krishna with His brother Balarama and sister Subhadra,

      It is deity manifestation of Krishna, Balarama and Lady Subhadra,

    Jai Govind

    I request you clear my doubts.I understand the complexities of life processes,cellular mechanisms and other natural phenomenon cannot be explained solely by reasoning and scientific theories as somewhere or other our knowledge is limited.I am a science student nd nature lover.After reading the article posted by you regarding the concept of the origin of life,a question arisen in my mind that krishna is all powerful,then, why he designed this universe in this complicated way?,why life originated? why he made all that dna etc matter space?what is his true nature? why are we given these bodies these reasoning abilities?why krishna waited for billions of years and made us take birth here?why prakrati and purush got seperated? who were those dinosaurs etc for souls are eternal were those dinosaurs primitive and other organisms we only? are there any planet lest earth having life?why will happen atlast for we are ultimately destined to reach our eternal govind? why doesn’t he appears now and clear all these doubts for one thing is sure that if even he messages in some ways we will submit to him?why krishna is so naughty why has he made everything complicated?I know these are childlish questions but still worthy to be answered…..

    I am a krishana devotee.I feel as if there is pure love for him deep in my heart.But at the same time I do believe in science.Sometimes i find myself stuck in between science emotions belief and devotion.I want to understand my Govind,I want to understand myself.

    I request my friends to please give answer to these questions.I hope i will get atleast answers of a few questions as i found this site quite appealing.

    Radhe krishna

    • Hare Krishna Jai Govind

      To clear your doubts you have to become Krishna conscious. Because unless you become Krishna conscious you will not be able to understand what Krishna consciousness is and you will remain continually bewildered.

      All these questions are irrelevant. You seem to accept that Govinda exists, that He is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Now you have to just surrender to the idea that you are His servant. And then you need to find out practically how you can engage in the service of Krishna. And to find out how to do this you need to read Srila Prabhupada’s books. And in the process of becoming Krishna conscious all your other questions will automatically be answered.

      The scientists can not understand anything. They only have very fragmental information about everything they study. The information we can gather through our material senses is very limited. There are so many things we can not perceive through our material senses. So they can not understand what they can not perceive.

      So instead of just speculating all these questions and being bewildered like this it is better to just admit that in our conditioned state with our very limited mind and our material senses we can not hope to understand Krishna or even this material world which is created ultimately by Krishna.

      The way to understand these things is to become Krishna conscious. We can not understand without becoming Krishna conscious.

      So you have to learn how to become Krishna conscious… That is the answer to all your questions. And Krishna consciousness is a science and that science is very elaborately presented in the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!
