PADA, March 3 2012, San Francisco, USA: Bhakti Vikas Swami (BVKS) says that ISKCON is intentionally developing into: A social welfare program, a society of mundane academia, a Hinduized organization, a business, a secular society and so on. He says “the powers that be” (the GBC’s gurus) are forcing people out of the society when they protest, and there is “no consultation” by the leaders with the rank and file.
He also says that there is no development of varnasrama, no kidding, then we would find that these “sannyasas” are not bona fide. Overall this is good, it means more leaders are STEPPING BACK from the mess that the GBC has created, and the main body of GBC are being openly criticized by people like BVKS.
BVKS sums it up — “I do not want to be part (of this movement).” He says he has decided the only two things left to do are: (a) to leave, or (b) to stay and “complain.” He says he is staying to complain. And then he says, ISKCON is developing as a karma kanda program which will not give a person liberation.
Where is the unity, he asks? He says the leaders are diverging from the teachings of Srila Prabhupada and DELIBERATELY avoiding the main body of Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. Full Comment
