Jan 24, 2013, USA, PADA: Suddadvaiti swami was (we are told) formerly Jayantakrt dasa, an ISKCON member. I remember writing him some years ago when he was interested in perhaps joining GAURA GOVINDA MAHARAJA’s camp with our Prabhupadanuga idea. He originally favored our idea to a large extent, then he suddenly broke off and joined the Gaudiya Matha camp of Narayana Maharaja / Jadurani DD.]
Suddhadvaiti Swami: “I will not attend the Gour Purnima festival this year. The recommendation of the sannyasi board was met by TM [Tirtha Maharaja] with scorn. He answered to it by an obnoxious letter, where he is trying to “turn the tables around” against us. If a “big big sannyasi / preacher / acharya” can get away with year after year of groping at women’ breasts, buttocks or / and genitals and still remain a sannyasi, a guru (acharya), and lead the parikramas, I don’t want no part in this masquerade. Since we don’t have any executive power to enforce anything, I have resigned from the sannyasi board. Sorry.”
[PADA: Tritha Maharaja is recognized as the current acharya successor to Krishna and Narayana Maharaja in the Jadurani dd preaching program, which begs the question, what kind of gurus is the Jadurani program promoting here? Jadurani said she left ISKCON because they are promoting bogus gurus (which they were doing all through the late 1980s and early 1990s under the "guidance" of Narayana Maharaja).
Now she joined the NM program that is apparently doing the same exact thing as the GBC gurus, promoting false gurus? What is her public explanation of all this? Why does she continue to promote the NM program, knowing it is promoting deviants as the Lord's guru successors (which is an insult to the real successors).
And since Suddhadvaita says there is no Governing Body to control these renegade messiahs, is this not exactly what has happened in ISKCON, the GBC has no powers over their bogus messiahs? When is Jadurani going to explain all this, of course she has never explained why NM supported the bogus GBC guru program and why NM was their "rasika advisor"?
Or do the people in the NM camp not know that promoting women abusers as messiahs is not bona fide? Or what is the real problem here? Can someone explain? ys pd]
ABOUT BV SUDDHAVAIT MAHARAJA:
Sripad BV Suddhadvaiti Maharaja
Maharaja was born as Guy Bouchié de Belle in 1953 in an ancient French, aristocratic family, with the title of Baron. From a young age he wanted to become a catholic priest, but starting the practice of yoga at 14 made him turn eastwards for his spiritual development. He studied and practiced Buddhism, then kriya-yoga in India, before taking up the path of bhakti in 1973. He received diksa initiation in 1974 under the name Jayantakrid das from Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, of whom he is one of the most senior French disciples.
He studied closely for 10 years under his beloved siksa-guru, Srila Gour Govinda Swami, the foremost disciple of Srila Prabhupada. Since Srila Gour Govinda Swami’s departure from this world in 1996, he has taken siksa from Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja, who nicknamed him Jayanta-Krishna.In March 2008 after thirty five years of practice and study on the path of bhakti, he received from Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja the renounced order of sannyasa and the name Bhaktivedanta Suddhadvaiti Swami.
Maharaja’s vast knowledge and long experience in teaching allows him to present the most esoteric subjects of the ancient wisdom of India in a way both captivating and easily understandable by his audience.
