Dear Prabhus, Hare Krishna! Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
Srila Prabhupada said that vanaprastha (retirement) at age 50 for all of his male disciples is “compulsory.” Why should the GBC men, most of whom are now aged 60+, be an exception? This is obviously Srila Prabhupada’s method to get rid of the “dead wood” within the management ranks of his beloved ISKCON. Srila Prabhupada demonstrated in 1972 that ISKCON could survive temporarily without any GBC at all, so why are these GBC men resisting the mandatory retirement that Srila Prabhupada repeatedly ordered?
The answer is obvious:
They are criminals, and they have set themselves up to be dictatorial tyrants. Therefore, like typical tyrannical dictator criminals, they are cursed to carry a heavy management burden until their dying days lest their replacement managers bring them to justice!
