The Ritvik Confusion on Parampara
BY: BHAKTA TORBEN

Where the Ritvik-dogma disagrees with Srila Prabhupada
Where the Ritvik-dogma disagrees with parampara

“So we got this information from His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, and that knowledge is still going on.

You are receiving through his servant.
And in future the same knowledge will go to your students.
This is called parampara system.
Evam parampara prap… It is not that you have become a student and you’ll remain student.
No. One day you shall become also guru and make more students, more students, more.”

(Srila Prabhupada, 1976, Hyderabad)

We can safely conclude that only a completely bewildered person cannot understand such clear instruction. There are SO MANY instructions from Srila Prabhupada, like this, that annihilate the Ritvik-dogma and mal-practice of ‘initiating’ devotees to Srila Prabhupada though he left his mortal frame in 1977. They then claim themselves as direct disciples of Srila Prabhupada. Thus confusing the whole above mentioned divine concept, parampara.

=========================

COMMENT BY URDHVAGA DAS

Yes, of course Srila Prabhupada wanted his disciples to become Gurus, but not every ISK’CON idiot CAN BE a guru. Sorry prabhus, but this is the same old canvassing and justifying for unqualified disciples to artificially adopt guru-ship. We can not take this serious anymore. How do you find bonafide candidates for guru-ship in the great ISK’CON molester nest, where most ISK’CON guru  aspirants are faggots, homosexuals, child-molesters, woman hater, criminals, perverts and sheer brainwashed idiotic zombies, even today, changing Srila Prabhupada’s books and philosophy?

This dumbass BHAKTA TORBEN, concocting his own philosophy, says: “There are SO MANY instructions from Srila Prabhupada, like this, that annihilate the Ritvik-dogma and mal-practice of ‘initiating’ devotees to Srila Prabhupada though he left his mortal frame in 1977.” (actually Srila Prabhupada was poisoned!)

BUT SRILA PRABHUPADA SAYS: “Make your own field and continue to be Ritvik and act on my behalf.” – Śrīla Prabhupāda: July 31, 1977.

Why is Srila Prabhupada’s clear instruction “Ritvik-dogma” ?
What is confusing about Srila Prabhupada’s Ritvik-instruction, given in his final letter of July 9th 1977 ? The only one confused seems to be Bhakta Torben. He should better read Srila Prabhupadas letter instead of speculating. [Read More…]

One of the devotional quality is titiksa, tolerance

Prabhupada, Mexico, February 14, 1975: […] So one of the devotional quality is titiksa, tolerance. That should be learned, how to tolerate in every condition of life. Just like those who are actually brahmanas in India… We have got also brahmanas in the Western countries, now created.

So because it is pinching cold, they do not forget to take bath early in the morning. It is simply practice. It may be painful for one day or two day, but if you practice, it is no longer painful.

So one should not give up the practice of taking bathing early in the morning because it is severe cold. That is not. Similarly, in the summer season, because it is scorching heat, one should not decide that “We shall stop cooking.” Because in the kitchen it may be too hot, but for that reason we cannot give up cooking.

Hamsaduta dasa: Bringing the Holy Name to Germany

“Once, while taking a walk with some of his students, Prabhupada  stopped and stood, watching a tugboat pull a large ocean vessel backwards into the harbor.”

Hamsaduta dasa, Back to Godhead Magazine, N°56, 1973: […] Srila Prabhupada stayed in Hamburg for about two months, lecturing in English while his German disciple Mandalibhadra translated his words. Prabhupada met with important Sanskrit professors, and he would be seen early in the morning taking his daily walk on Landungsbruecken, the waterfront of Hamburg.

Once, while taking a walk with some of his students, he stopped and stood, watching a tugboat pull a large ocean vessel backwards into the harbor. Suddenly he turned and said, “Just see! A man under the spell of maya [illusion] is just like this big ocean liner. The tugboat is small, but because the big ocean liner has its ship’s motor shut off, it is possible for the little tugboat to drag the big ship helplessly to dock. Similarly, the soul without Krishna is being pulled by maya, down to hell.”

My Dear Brahmananda,

Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated 9th September 1968, and have noted the contents carefully. And specifically about the business transaction of Messrs. MacMillan through Mr. Wade.

Now, after reading your letter under reply very carefully, I have decided to take 5000 copies from them, provided they give us 50%, not 47%. Then we shall take delivery of the books in three installments; first, two thousand copies; second, two thousand copies; and, again, one thousand copies.

And as promised by them, they must give us 60 days sight for payment for each consignment. And we shall give them bank reference. I think this will be nice arrangement.

Wall Street Journal: India to Survey Citizens on Their Caste

Jayadharma, May 10, 1975, Perth: […] Sometimes people may say, Srila Prabhupada, that we’re just trying to introduce the old caste system from India that never worked anyway.
Prabhupada: That caste system is already there. We have got poor class, rich class. The Communists, they have also worker class, manager class, although the Communists are against class system. But I have seen, they have made this classification: worker class, manager class. Why do you make this? That is efficiency. Leader class, follower class. Otherwise there will be chaos. This is natural. FULL CONVERSATION

“India to Survey Citizens on Their Caste”

WALL STREET JOURNAL | ASIA NEWS | SEPTEMBER 9 | 2010 | KRISHNA POKHAREL

Ramjeevan and Rampyari

“Sanjit Das for The Wall Street Journal: Father of five, 35 year old Ramjeevan is seen with his pregnant wife, Rampyari and his daughters in his house in village Lalpur, in Hardoi, Uttar Pradesh. According to the World Bank, there are 1.4 billion people living on less than $1.25 per day. “

NEW DELHI—The Indian government decided to poll all of its citizens on their caste for the first time in 80 years in a major policy shift on the controversial issue.

Caste—in effect a person’s standing in the hierarchy of Hinduism—continues to define many aspects of Indian society, such as marriage and appealing to voters especially in rural areas.

Anuttama devi dasi: Self-sufficiency

“Our Bhagavad-gita philosophy explains that men and animals must have food in order to maintain their bodies.”

Prabhupada: […] “Our farm projects are an extremely important part of our movement. We must become self-sufficient by growing our own grains and producing our own milk, then there will be no question of poverty.  So develop these farm communities as far as possible.

They should be developed as an ideal society depending on natural products not industry. Industry has simply created godlessness, because they think they can manufacture everything that they need.

Our Bhagavad-gita philosophy explains that men and animals must have food in order to maintain their bodies. And the production of food is dependent on the rain and the rain of course is dependent on chanting Hare Krishna.

Therefore let everyone chant Hare Krishna, eat nicely and keep their bodies fit and healthy. This is ideal life style. We do not condemn modern civilization but we don’t like to get it at the cost of God Consciousness, that is suicide.” — SP Letter to Rupanuga, 18 December, 1974

Jayadvaita’s Book Changes — Closer to Srila Prabhupada, or Further Away?

“Just judge the result, Jayadvaita has defiled this pure, transcendental literature by becoming more than his Guru overnight.”


BY: HOTRA DAS

Aug 25, 2010 — AUSTRIA (SUN) — This article is a comment on the recent article by Rama dasa, “Chief Editors of the Book Changes” and Mahasana dasa, “I Like the New Bhagavad-gita“.

‘…How dare you to doubt us and criticize us so harshly because we keep editing Srila Prabhupada’s books. We, the pure and devoted souls, can go on editing His books as long as we feel free, because we become more pure and more qualified every passing year. Srila Prabhupada has put his unflinching faith and trust into us and all His statements like: “… In future you don’t do any changes without asking me first …”, “… Do not try to change anything without my permission…”, “I also do not like too much editorial work. This too much editorial work on Geetopanishad (the typed manuscript of the Gita)…”, etc., etc., they are just a myth. You don’t understand Srila Prabhupada, but we do. He was unhappy with His Gita during His lifetime but luckily He has us, the devoted, supremely qualified, lifetime appointed editors, we go on perfecting his books. And don’t dare to criticize us again, you lowborn and ignorant worms.’

This message is conveyed to us with many little video clips. But every hoax is self-revealing. Jayadvaita is permitting us a gracious glimpse into his heroic revisions, which have been scanned and digitized and can be seen in “See the Changes”, handwritten on the 1972 Macmillan Gita.

Ships asailing

Everyone in this world is attracted by a person in the same category
No matter what yuga it is, it is always the same story
The demons love and promote each other, adoring their communal hate
While the Sadhus glorify Lord Sri Krsna and His associates unceasingly, and partake in a different fate

The demons invade, pillage, rape, murder, steal, abuse, occupy, molest and grope
Then form a commission to elect each other as incarnations of God by a 2/3 hands vote
Throwing away their timeless life for fleeting fame, a truly self-imposed farcical hope
Don’t they know it’s already been chewed before and currently it’s called the pope ?

All part of the cheating religions and the deceptions the atheist propagandists promote
They can’t even understand the miscarriage in the “scriptures” that they inaccurately wrote
Which bring them to don the clothes of sannyasi and apply fake tilak
But while enamored by all this invented nonsense, the Transcendental boat has left the dock

Why did they get left? What exactly did they do?
Well, Vaisnava-aparadha we reply, disobeying the orders of our Guru
Changing Sastra, changing initiations, changing dates of Ekadasi’s
Changing the offering of food, changing Mangala Aratik, offending, banning and killing devotees [Read More…]

“…In Los Angeles many fathers and mothers used to come to see me to express their feelings of gratitude for my leading the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement throughout the entire world. Some of them said that it is greatly fortunate for the Americans that I have started the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement in America. But actually the original father of this movement is Lord Kṛṣṇa Himself, since it was started a very long time ago but is coming down to human society by disciplic succession. If I have any credit in this connection, it does not belong to me personally, but it is due to my eternal spiritual master, His Divine Grace Om Viṣṇupāda Paramahaṁsa Parivrājakācārya 108 Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Mahārāja Prabhupāda.” [Read More…]

MY POEM FOR EKADASI

O my dear Lord Krishna
O Supreme and absolute truth
I’m not qualified to pray to You
but all I have is You Dear Boy Blue.

And so my dear Lord of the Gopis
though my heart is harder than stone
by Thy causeless mercy fly me home
for I’m yours and frightened all alone.

Here I’m all tied up in a ditch
with no way at all to get free
all shackled by Maya I’m bewitched
so all I can do is pray and plead.

O my dear Madhusadana
I’m blinded by darkest karma
I can’t even see what is my dharma
am I your warrior, brahman or farmer. [Read More…]

Service to God is [not] service to mankind

Srila Prabhupada: Service to God is [not] service to mankind

Srila Prabhupada: Service to God is [not] service to mankind
compiled by Damaghosa dasa

Dec 16 1976 Hyderabad press conference
Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India

Dr. Ramachandra: I only want that your movement should utilize my services because I believe service to mankind is service to God.

Prabhupāda: No, no, service to God is [not] service to mankind. If you pour water in the root, then it is service to the tree. And if you pour water on the leaf, then nobody is served. Everything will be dry, that’s all. That is imperfect service. If you have got realization of God, why should you give only human being service? Why not tiger? He is also… Kṛṣṇa says, “They are also My sons.” That means you discriminate. That is not that… Father will be satisfied when all the sons are given, not partial, not partial. Suppose I have got five children. If you give service to one children, so I’ll ask that “Why not other children?” Naturally.

Dr. Ramachandra: Discrimination comes.

Prabhupāda: Discrimination comes. So if you have realized God, then you must be learnedPaṇḍitāḥ sama-darśinaḥ [Bg. 5.18].

Some Conclusions/explanation — Srila Prabhupada explains above that when people try to give some service to humanity thru social services, etc., this is incomplete service and not really service to God. It is pious activity  no doubt, but it still remains on the material platform, because they do not know the process of how to serve the Supreme Being – Krsna. He gives the simple example of pouring water on the leaves of a tree instead of the roots. That will not help all the aspects of the tree.

So by our miscalculations about what is “spiritual” and what is material, we remain in this material world thinking we are becoming spiritual persons, but in fact are just licking the bottle of honey on the outside never opening the jar and tasting the sweet honey inside. And why is that? Because we do not take to the proper process which means in the beginning, surrendering to the Lords pure devotee representative. So we remain on the mental platform only, not the spiritual platform.

The Path of Reality

The way of devotional service in neither sentimental nor mundane

The Path of Reality
By Narasimha das

Many dishonest preachers pose as scriptural scholars, brahmins or even VaishnavasSrila Prabhupada clearly states in His Third Canto Bhagavatam Purports that these kinds of hypocrites who pose as religious authorities yet ignore or deny the path of devotional service and surrender to Krishna are even more dangerous than avowed atheists who simply do not believe in God or religion in any form.

Atheists and posers sometimes challenge faithful devotees, saying, “What is the use your sentiment and mythologies? Can you predict an eclipse or create a space shuttle? Better you worship scientists, who make our lives easy.”

One infamous atheist posing as a sadhu (Vivekananda) advised devout Hindus to uproot their sacred Tulasi plants and grown eggplants instead. He proposed that growing eggplants would be of more consequence that growing Tulasi. Similarly, other pseudo-spiritualists advise, “All books are just words on a page. They are under lock and key. Better you listen to me, “a living guru,” or one of my followers, to understand the truth. Unless you accept me as authority you can’t understand scripture.”

Are Devotees of Krishna Fools?

Srila Prabhupada has often countered the assertion that devotees are “foolish” or “blind” followers: “The way of devotional service in neither sentimental nor mundane. It is the path of reality by which the living entity can attain the transcendental happiness of being freed from the three kinds of material miseries… The argument that unless one has proper knowledge one cannot be freed from material miseries is undoubtedly true. But because the lotus feet of the Lord are full of transcendental knowledge, acceptance of His lotus feet completes that necessity… There is no want of knowledge in the devotional service of Vasudeva, the personality of Godhead. He, the Lord, personally takes charge of dissipating the darkness of ignorance from the heart of a devotee.  He confirms this in Bhagavad-gita (10.10)”:

Anglican Reverend and Church Minister Sparks Outrage After Telling Christians to Pray for Prince George, age 4, to be Gay

Anglican Reverend and Church Minister Kelvin Holdsworth Sparks Outrage After Telling Christians to Pray for Prince George, age 4, to be Gay

The Very Anglican Reverend and Church Minister (pictured),
Provost of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, said England should pray
for Prince George to grow up with a love for
 ‘fine, young gentlemen’

Prabhupada: Priests should be ideal character and they are advocating homosex? Now where is the ideal character man? If the priestly class are going to hospital for drinking habit and they are allowing man to man marriage and homosex then where is ideal character? Homosex. They are supporting homosex. So degraded, and still they say, “What we have done?” They do not know what is degradation, and they are priest. They are teaching others. They do not know what is the meaning of degradation.

Prabhupada: “The sense gratification, homosex, they are supporting. Just see. Just see. At least, in animal society there is no homosex. They have created homosex, and that is being passed by the priest, the religious heads. You know that? Just see. If you say that they are animal civilization, that is a great credit for them. It is less than animal civilization.” (Room Conversation with Srila Prabhupada—August 25, 1971, London)

DAILY MAIL ONLINE — Anglican Reverend and Church Minister Sparks Outrage
After Telling Christians to Pray for Prince George, age 4, to be Gay
.

A prominent Anglican church minister and gay rights campaigner has sparked outrage after calling for Christians to pray for Prince George, — age 4, and third in line to the throne — to grow up to be gay, (to find the love “of a fine young gentleman”) in order to advance the cause of gay rights in the Church.

The Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth, Provost of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, offered his controversial suggestion in a blog written after the news of Prince Harry’s engagement. In the online letter, he lists strategy ideas for campaigners to change the Church’s opposition to gay marriage. He concluded: ‘They do in England have another unique option, which is to pray in the privacy of their hearts (or in public if they dare) for the Lord to bless Prince George with a love, when he grows up, of a fine young gentleman.’

But his comments about the four-year-old, who is third in line to the throne, were met with outrage by fellow Christians – who condemned them as ‘tasteless’ and ‘sinister’. [Read More…]

The GBC is a Jewish mafia body

The GBC is a Jewish mafia body

The GBC is a Jewish mafia body
by Krishna C. Jacobs,
son of Bir Krishna Swami.

The GBC is a Jewish mafia body. Like most other exclusive governing corporate or governmental bodies it is impossible to alter the membership externally (without force). The members are held accountable to each other. They do not want to expose or admit criminal or ethical mistakes so they deny making mistakes. There is also the obvious interest to support fellow members to keep the appearance organizational right and legitimacy. As an international mafia body the GBC has and continues to disregard the mistakes of its members and holds none of its own accountable nor does it seek discovery.

The members judge one another on social terms and therefore crimes committed by its membership are perceived as deniably invisible and irrelevant.

I am the son of Bir Krishna Maharaj, who is a compulsive liar and criminal. It has been nearly two years since I exposed Bruce O. Jacobs’ criminal, abusive, and contemptible past to ISKCON and the GBC its self. In all this time no attempt at discovery has been made. The GBC has not even pretended to seek the truth or make a judgement not spontaneously in favor of their close associate. Instead the organization immediately judicated me, his son and the victim of Bir Krishna and ISKCON Inc..

If ISKCON deserves to continue to exist it is without the GBC and Hridayananda Goswami (who acted in accordance with Bir Krishna Maharaj when making the decision to eliminate Bir Krishna’s son). Like any other corporation that is suffering as a result of mistakes made by its board of directors and leaders and representatives, ISKCON devotees must make a decision to change the board in order to keep the viability of the organization. Otherwise the entire organization will remain, as it is today, a Jewish mafia body. [Read More…]

AVOIDING REPEATING THE GAUDIYA MATHA MISTAKES

Hare Krsna – Below we have good warnings by Srila Prabhupada to stay away from his Gaudiya Matha and his Godbrothers. In the first three quotes below, Srila Prabhupada shows us how his Godbrother, Prof Sannyal was wrong in his interpretation of the Haridas Thakur-prostitute story, and in other things was deviated. Srila Prabhupada told us– don’t read their books, don’t go to their temples, and even don’t sell them our books!!!

So a new devotee might question—But they worship Lord Caitanya, chant Hare Krsna, and have all the goswami books Prabhupada !! Please see all the warnings below.

Damaghosa das
——————-

1.) Dec 13 1970 Indor

Himāvatī: In that same connection, the story of Ṭhākura Haridāsa and the harlot. She began to chant and told him the reason that she was a prostitute, she was no good and simply by that association she began to chant or by previous association…
Prabhupāda: No, by association. By the influence of Haridāsa Ṭhākura. For three days, three days she associated.
Himāvatī: But Professor Sanyal was putting forward his theory that in previous lives she had had association; therefore she began to chant.
Prabhupāda: Why previous lives? That’s not very good reason.
Himāvatī: Subconscious, that she had subconsciously remembered.
Prabhupāda: No, no. No, no. That is not.
Himāvatī: In one of the Back to Godhead magazines
Prabhupāda: That is not. He advocates that.(?) Direct association with HaridāsaṬhākura. Why previously?
Himāvatī: We want to say that previously she had done some chanting.
Prabhupāda: We don’t find any such thing. Professor Sanyal was not very much advanced. He committed so many blunders.
Himāvatī: You heard about that article?
Prabhupāda: No.
Himāvatī: That was the (indistinct)
Prabhupāda: Well, if that sort of remark is given it is not against the śāstra, but it was not necessarily previously. His direct association… Caitanya Mahāprabhu says,

sādhu saṅga sādhu saṅga sarva śāstra kaya
lava mātra sādhu saṅge sarva siddhi haya

[Cc. Madhya 22.54]

“Even a moment’s association with a pure devotee—all success.” Not necessarily that one has to acquire it previous, no. Generally it is so, but sādhu sanga has got its effect. Caitanya Mahāprabhu said, lavamatra sādhu sanga sarva siddhi haya. You have not read in the Sanātana-śikṣā in the Teachings of Lord Caitanya?
Revatīnandana: Does that also apply to reading the words of a pure devotee?
Prabhupāda: Yes.
Revatīnandana: Even a little association with your books has the same effect?
Prabhupāda: Effect, of course, it requires both the things. One must be very eager to take it. Just like Mahārāja Parīkṣit heard Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, and there are so many others. They are also reading Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. So Mahārāja Parīkṣit was very serious. So both things should be serious.

What is holding us back from going back to Godhead?

What is holding us back from going back to Godhead

There are many devotees who assume themselves to be in Kṛṣṇa consciousness and devotional
service but at heart do not accept the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, as the Absolute Truth

What is holding us back from going back to Godhead???
by Damaghosa das

1.) BG 9.12 purport-There are many devotees who assume themselves to be in Kṛṣṇa consciousness and devotional service but at heart do not accept the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, as the Absolute Truth.For them, the fruit of devotional service-going back to Godhead-will never be tasted. Similarly, those who are engaged in fruitive, pious activities and who are ultimately hoping to be liberated from this material entanglement will never be successful either because they deride the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa.

2.) May 6th 1973 LA–Kṛṣṇa is not hungry. He is self-satisfied, pūrṇa. But if His devotee offers Him something with love and affection, then He accepts. So do not think that “We have made such nice, sumptuous plate for Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa must eat.” No. There is no such thing, “must.” You cannot make Kṛṣṇa must. That is not possible. So Kṛṣṇa will see how much you have love for Him. Then He will accept. Otherwise He’ll reject. Therefore, it is forbidden, those who are non devotee, those who are not initiated, those who are not chanting regularly, their offering to Kṛṣṇa will not be accepted. We must be very careful. We must know our position, whether I am sincerely following the principles of devotional service. Then Kṛṣṇa will accept.
