How my family life suffered during Prabhupada’s poisoning revelation.

Work on the book trilogy titled Kill Guru Become Guru began in April 2015 and has continued since then. News of this surely reached the dark forces who had poisoned Srila Prabhupada and his divine movement, and by 2016, in hindsight, I can say that for the first time in almost 20 years, my marriage situation deteriorated rapidly and drastically. My wife did seem to be the same person as before, and she complained the same of me. Arguments festered, disagreements piled up, and we seemed to be going in very different directions. All my efforts to maintain unity and calm failed; I retreated into my own space and became practically a recluse. Any engagement with the family ended badly. Effective communication was elusive. I tried to break through to the “other side,” but with no luck. It just got worse. Emotions were elevated; harsh words flew like missiles; still we managed to complete the first film about establishing the cadmium poisoning of Srila Prabhupada through scientific investigation, and we published the first book: The Poisoning of Srila Prabhupada’s Body. That was May-June 2017, last year.

By this time we were seriously discussing divorce. My family did not want to be on the farm, and I wanted to stay and develop the community project. The previous year, as I was working on the writing project, all the other three families that had come to New Jaipur left, more or less due to some subtle disturbances in the ether, as is my take on it. Their departure and the marriage collapse felt beyond my control, and I stood by in distress watching as though it was in slow motion. Family misunderstandings continued to pile up and compound.

The constant stable factor was that the writing about the evidence on Srila Prabhupada’s cadmium poisoning was going well. The work on the truth about Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance and his poisoning was moving forward in a way I had never expected. We had a committee who participated with quotes, edits, suggestions, philosophical perspectives, etc. In October 2017 the fourth film was posted to YouTube, titled In Pursuit of Prabhupada’s Poisoners.  The Truth Committee films were getting tens of thousands of views; what really happened to Srila Prabhupada was being understood widely in the Hare Krishna movement. Then all hell broke loose. [Read More…]

Srila Prabhupada orders Balaram das
to perform Ritvik initiation on His behalf

Balaram das: “I still have his original letters from Srila Prabhupada requesting me to perform the yajna formalities for his new disciples.”

Srila Prabhupada: My Dear Balaram das, Please accept my blessings.
Now hold a fire yajna and present the names at that time. The gayatri mantras may be heard by tape through the right ear. The beads are duly chanted upon and are enclosed within along with one brahmana thread. The names are, for Bhakta Farmer– Vrajaraja dasa, and for Bhakta Ted– Tribhuvanapati dasa. Jyotir Maya das has been accepted by me for second initiation.
All of our initiated devotees must strictly chant 16 rounds a day and avoid the four pillars of sinful life completely. These four regulative principles should be lectured on by some expert speaker, as well as the ten offenses to the holy name. The brahmana must possess the qualities mentioned in the Bhagavad-gita (18.42) and take bath at least twice a day to maintain external cleanliness as well as always chanting the maha mantra for internal cleanliness. (Letter– Sep. 11, 1976 )

Srila Prabhupada: My dear Balaram, Please accept my blessings.
Upon your recommendation I am pleased to accept the following devotees as my initiated disciples. Now hold a fire sacrifice and instruct the first initiates to always follow the four regu­lative principles and chant a minimum of 16 rounds daily avoiding the ten offenses. Let the second initiate hear the tape of me chanting Gayatri in the right ear. Show him how to count on the finger divisions. Their beads and thread have been duly sanctified by me.

Bhakta Andre – Atmarama dasa
Edward R. Byrne – Brhaspati dasa
Heajther Abbot – Hari dasi
second initiation – Visvahetu dasa

Hoping this will meet you in good health.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami

About the Author

Patrick Geoffrois was born in Paris. He is a cofounding member of Electric Press, which was formed in his native city in 1969 to facilitate the publication of the poetry, prose and recordings of an avant-garde group of writers and musicians. Having gained a measure of public acclaims and recognition through Electric Press, Patrick was invited to contribute several poems to Parvis à L’écho des Cils, a collaborative volume of poetry, published by Jean-Jacques Pauvert, that also included works by Allan Ginsberg and William Burroughs. His writings are also featured in a edition of Opus, a French literary review. In addition, he formed along with several members of Electric Press the rock band, Mahogany Brain, which recorded three albums on the French label, Futura.

Shortly thereafter, Patrick withdrew from the public eye and began many years of extensive travel. During that time he represented Iskcon Press (USA, Europe, Asia) at the 1977 International Book Fair in Moscow. He lived alternately between Europe and India, where he begun organizing short seminars and lectures including Cairo University.

In 1979 he arrived in New Yoork City and resumed his musical interests. He played and toured with James Chance and the Contortions. Patrick currently resides in Manhattan where he is working on a forthcoming book of non fiction stories.

His interests, which have always focused on the studies and practice of Greater Magick, are reflected in his writings and music.

(VERY important/Comprehensive)

Hare Krishna Kamsahanta Prabhu,
please accept my obeisances, all glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Somehow or other I havent heard from you in a while, you said you were going to call a while back but you must have forgotten. The only way i can take calls is if i know you are going to call on a certain day, i will wait with my phone in hand so that I do not miss your call.

In any case, I have been reading a bit and compiling some information on Malati (Melani Nagel), her ex husband  Patrick Geoffrois (Prithu Putra, ex swami) In this letter there is compiled information by myself and another devotee who wishes to remain anonymous.

This is a news article of a murder in New York. the guy on the right is Malati’s husband, Prithu Putra das (ex swami), who ran a satan worship cult among drug addicts in the lower east side he was the guru of the satan worshipers there, and they killed some people in rituals and fed the meat to the homeless in soup this same satan worshipping guy (Patrick Geoffrois) was with Prabhupada in the last two years as part of his entourage.

Look within. Amend yourself, rather than pry into the frailties of others.

Look within. Amend yourself, rather than pry into the frailties of others.
(Dialogue between Mahesh Raja and MD)

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura says this but I do not understand :

21. Look within. Amend yourself, rather than pry into the frailties of others.
(The Pearls of Instruction)

Jesus Christ says similar. But how can I notice the bogus if I may not see the
deviations in spiritual life?

Also – there is saying “Judge not others lest you be judged.”
The idea behind it is for those who are toooooo much behind seeing the fault of
OTHERS that they do not see what their OWN faults are.

No. If I see the fault of others – bogus gurus, pretenders and so on – I will judge
them. I can not absolve them in spite of that soul actually does not act.
And generally people (like me) see their own faults less.

Learning to discriminate between right and wrong is different from
fault finding for the sake of it: [Read More…]

Flame throwing Fanatics

From the The Nectar Of Instruction
By His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Text One Purport

Similarly, anger can be controlled. We cannot stop anger altogether, but if we simply become angry with those who blaspheme the Lord or the devotees of the Lord, we control our anger in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu became angry with the miscreant brothers Jagāi and Mādhāi, who blasphemed and struck Nityānanda Prabhu. In His Śikṣāṣṭaka Lord Caitanya wrote, tṛṇād api sunīcena taror api sahiṣṇunā: “One should be humbler than the grass and more tolerant than the tree.” [Read More…]

Sri Isvara Puri Tirobhava Tithi (Disappearance Day)

Srila Prabhupada describes the authorized Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya disciplic succession through Sri Isvara Puri

Letters : 1968 Correspondence : February : Letter to: Upendra — Los Angeles 13 February, 1968 : 68-02-13 :

There are four Sampradayas from the beginning of the creation. One is called Brahma Sampradaya, and is coming down by disciplic succession from Brahma; another Sampradaya is coming down from Laksmi, called Sri Sampradaya; another is coming down from the Kumaras, they are known as Nimbarka Sampradaya; another Sampradaya is coming from Lord Siva, Rudra Sampradaya or Vishnu Svami. These are four bona fide Sampradayas that are accepted by the bona fide spiritualists.

The Impersonalist Sampradaya is not original neither the Impersonalist Sampradaya or party can help us. At the present moment there are so many Sampradayas, but we have to test them about their method of disciplic understanding. Anyway, all the four Sampradayas above mentioned, they are after worshiping the Supreme Lord Vishnu, in His different Expansions, and some of them are in favor of worshiping Radha Krishna.

Devotional Qualifications – it requires nothing more than sincerity

“Some scholars recommend that knowledge and renunciation are important factors for elevating oneself to devotional service. But actually that is not a fact. Actually, the cultivation of knowledge or renunciation, which are favorable for achieving a footing in Krishna consciousness, may be accepted in the beginning, but ultimately they may also come to be rejected, for devotional service is dependent on nothing other than the sentiment or desire for such service. It requires nothing more than sincerity.

Astrological Combination for WW3 this Summer?

Word War3

Astrological Combination for WW3 this Summer?

Most devotees are aware that Srila Prabhupada predicted that the materialistic civilization would be destroyed by atomic weapons and that he told us that:

Prabhupada: Preaching will be very nice after the war when both of them, especially Russia, will befinished…. ( S.P. Morning Walk Conversation (World War III) April 4, 1975, Mayapur)

At this point in history, it doesn’t take a great prophet or astrologer to see that the world situation is like a powder keg and a single spark could set off a chain reaction resulting in nuclear war. Srila Prabhupada tells us that this war is inevitable, and the question is really just “who will be able to drop the bomb first”:

Yogesvara: Is such an atomic war foretold in Bhag…
Prabhupada: Yes. Next war means atomic war. All these rascals will be killed automatically. I will kill you, you’ll kill me. That’s all. The atomic bombs. They are meant for creating disaster, that’s all. What else they can do? And now everyone is having atomic weapon, just like India has now got. That means they are preparing, by nature’s course they are preparing for war, and “I put my atomic bomb on your head, and you put on my head. You die, I die, that’s all.” They simply die. Now what was the result of the disastrous war twice? The whole European nations ruined. They are not no more rich. I saw in Paris, in Germany. They are not as rich as the Americans. Because American inland, there was no such big war, so their opulence is existing, but on account of these two wars, British completely finished. Yes. British completely. It is now… Hitler wanted that “I shall again make these English people a fisherman’s island. They have to take their business to fishing only.” (laughter) That was Hitler’s declaration.
Now the nuclear war means it will not continue very long. The first party who will drop the bomb on the other party, he will be victorious, and immediately the war will stop. They are simply arranging how to drop the atom bomb first. So one who will be able to drop the bomb first, he will be victorious. It doesn’t require long time. Just like in Japan, as soon as the Americans dropped the atom bomb in Hiroshima, immediately they surrendered. This will be the result. Now the question is who will be able to drop the bomb first.

A number of astrologers with good track records are predicting WW3 this summer. I happened to be listening to an astrologer I respect, Joni Patri, and got chills when she mentioned a specific date to watch regarding World War: July 27. That particular date got my attention because my godbrother, Padmagarbha Prabhu, had told me about a dream/vision that he had regarding the following day, July 28th: [Read More…]

the guru of all in this whole universe.

I beg everyone please hear me
for everything starts with hearing
just hearing from God’s pure devotee
to rise above all sins and all fearing. [Read More…]

Appearance Day
of Śrī Śrīmad Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Mahārāja Prabhupāda

Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Praṇati

नम ॐ विष्णु-पादाय कृष्ण-प्रेष्ठाय भू-तले
श्रीमते भक्तिसिद्धान्त-सरस्वतीति नामिने

nama oṁ viṣṇu-pādāya kṛṣṇa-preṣṭhāya bhū-tale
śrīmate bhaktisiddhānta-sarasvatīti nāmine

I offer my respectful obeisances unto His Divine Grace Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī,
who is very dear to Lord Kṛṣṇa, having taken shelter at His lotus feet

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati was born in the holy pilgrimage place of Jagannatha Puri to Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, the great Vaishnava acharya in the line of succession coming from Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Although employed as a government magistrate, Srila Bhaktivinoda worked tirelessly to establish the teachings of Lord Chaitanya in India. He envisioned a worldwide spiritual movement and prayed for a son to help him achieve his dream.

On February 6, 1874, in the sacred pilgrimage town of Jagannath Puri, where Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura served as superintendent of the famous Jagannatha temple, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta appeared in this world. He was given the name Bimala Prasada. At the age of seven, Bimala Prasada had memorized the more than seven hundred Sanskrit verses of the Bhagavad-gita and could speak illuminating commentaries upon them. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, the author of many important books and other writings on Gaudiya Vaisnava philosophy, trained his son in printing and proofreading.

By the time he was twenty-five years old, Bimala Prasada had acquired an impressive reputation as a scholar of Sanskrit, mathematics, and astronomy. His astronomical treatise, Surya- siddhanta, won him the title Siddhanta Sarasvati in recognition of his immense learning. In 1905, following the advice of his father, Siddhanta Sarasvati accepted spiritual initiation from Srila Gaurakishora Dasa Babaji. Although Srila Gaurakishora Dasa Babaji was illiterate, he was renowned throughout the continent as a great saint and Vaishnava acharya. Siddhanta Sarasvati, although a great scholar, exhibited humility and dedication in the presence of Srila Gaurakishora. Satisfied with such humility and dedication of his highly educated disciple, Srila Gaurakishora gave Siddhanta Sarasvati his full blessings and requested him to “preach the Absolute Truth and keep aside all other work.” Upon the disappearance of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura in 1914, Siddhanta Sarasvati became editor of his father’s spiritual journal, Sajjana-tosani, and founded the Bhagawat Press for the publication of Gaudiya Vaishnava literature. In 1918 Siddhanta Sarasvati accepted the renounced order of spiritual life, assuming the title Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami Maharaja. For purposes of propagating Gaudiya Vaishnavism throughout India, he organized the Gaudiya Math, with sixty-four branches throughout the country. The headquarters of his mission, the Chaitanya Gaudiya Math, is located in Sridhama Mayapura, the birthplace of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.

Srila Bhaktisiddhanta adjusted ancient traditions to conform to technological and social conditions of the twentieth century. He considered the printing press a most effective means of spreading this message throughout the world and was himself the author of many important translations, commentaries, and philosophical essays. He was the first spiritual teacher in this line to allow his renounced preachers (sannyasis) to wear Western clothes and travel in modem conveyances rather that on foot. Throughout the 1930s, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta expanded and increased his missionary work and succeeded in reestablishing Gaudiya Vaishnavism as the leading force in Indian spiritual life.

On January 1, 1937, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura passed from this world.

On Singing Gaura Arati,
and changing the original teachings

From: Bhakti Madhurya Govinda Goswami‎
Govinda Dasi – January 27

Govinda Dasi, PAMHO. AGTSP! U used to know me as Makhanlal das. I like telling the prabhus how u were the first to bring Tulsi Devi to the West. U are one of the only devotees who can answer this question: Didn’t Srila Prabhupada tell us he personally wrote the melody for Gaura Arati (Kiba Jaya) that he taught us in 1969? We all chanted it until Acyutananda in his infinite wisdom, changed it to the melody he learned in India. It is my intent to try to reintroduce it by GBC resolution. Don’t laugh. Many may support this as part of preserving Srila Prabhupada’s legacy. There are other things I wud like to discuss on your e address. Kindly send it to me at GGOSWAMI 108@GMAIL.COM. Thank u in an advance for your reply. YS, Govinda Goswami

Govinda Dasi: Dear Bhakti Madhuya Govinda Goswami PRabhu (is that correct?:)
Pamho, all glories to Srila Prabhupada! Of course I remember you Makhanlal, arent you Naranarayans brother? YEs, Srila Prabhupada first introduced the Gaura Arati mantra, and sang it, while we were living in Seattle WA. The first arati that he sang it at was in our little apartment, and Harsharani and Kartikeya were there, along with me on kartals, and Srila Prabhupada singing. Harsharani had just made lovely Deity clothes for Prabhuapda’s Radha Krishna Deities, and he wanted to begin the teaching o f how to do aratis. So he had Harsharani waving the items while he chanted and told us the meaning of the Gaura arati. I had a big UHER recorder at the time, and I am sure I recorded it. But I gave everything to the archives, you have to check with them. It would be in Seattle WA Sept of 1968. They probably have the recording in their files somewhere.

It’s great that you want to introduce the original teachings and songs back into the movement, but why not start with the original books, since the books are the most important thing that Srila Prabhupada came to this world to give. Just remind them that he often said “Krishna has written these books…” and remove the thousands of unnecessary changes that have been made to them posthumously. That would be the greatest service without a doubt.

At the time that Srila Prabhupada introduced the first arati, he also explained the meaning and the procedure. Yes it would be very nice if you could track that down, because now this new and so-called “Deity ministry” out of Australia has completely reversed the procedure he taught us, and has infected temples all over the world with this new type of worship—offering first to Krishna—whereas Srila Prabhupada stressed repeatedly that we must first offer through him, our Acharya, in order for Krishna to accept anything from us. He wrote this in letters, on conversation tapes, and taught us early pujaris this (i.e. Himavati, Arundhati, Vishvadevi, Yamuna, and others) very important feature—to always offer through the parampara, so that the offering will be accepted. Please research this and you will find it to be true. [Read More…]

SRILA PRABHUPADA SIDDHANTA – Authorized Conclusions Reguarding Srila Prabhupada, Great Vaishnavas, and the Mission and Teachings of the Krishna Consciousness Movement

More than Magnanimous

Sri Krsna, has everyone forgot, that You, are THE, most clever ?
And no one can’t outsmart You today, tomorrow, nor ever ?
we can’t even fathom why they waste their time with all this
Instead of rejoining You, in eternal life, full of knowledge and bliss

The Sastras provide many examples, where You and Your peaceful devotees
Were attacked by brutes and hooligans, armed with deadly weaponry
They are the jarasandha’s, kalayavana’s, salva’s, and kali’s
And in response to their threat, You Avatara, and go on a killing spree

Where their blood flows like rivers, and their limbs float like ships,
And Your pure devotees cheer and celebrate Your uncommon achievements
For You are always the most ferocious protector of Your dear friends
While purging the demons, who never are seen, nor heard from, again

In these recent times though, You are giving them and their followers a special reprieve
To disarm themselves and to surrender to the Maha-mantra symphony
Singing and dancing, following Srila Prabhupada attentively
Forgiving them of all their past actions, and present nefarious misdeeds [Read More…]

Killing For Krishna

Letter from a devotee who wishes to remain anonymous:

“Hare Krishna Prabhu. Respects. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. I read your whole book. Amazing how Krishna is using you to expose the truth, very inspiring. No doubt you are part of a huge and important block of service that Krishna is using you to do.

I want to help in regard to the distribution of your important book. I will copy you in an email to a devotee in India that I am sure would like to help distribute the book there. I also want to send copies to important people in the USA. I am only a humble Uber driver at present, so I cannot do a lot, but I’d like to donate $200 to get the book to important people. I would also like to get maybe 5 copies more to give to friends as gifts. Let me know if we can work together on this.

As your book will undoubtedly rattle some very powerful people in ISKCON, please try your best to have your life – family and the project in order, so in case these rascal people try to hurt you, all may continue okay. If they have done it before, they could at least try it again. See if you have the up to standard PC security, so they may not be able to hack your PC and get information of your contacts and progress.  [Read More…]

Why TKG (Tamal) was banned to China by Srila Prabhupada

Tamal Krishna - Guru poisoner

Why TKG (Tamal) was banned to China by Srila Prabhupada
told by Uttamasloka das

Srila Prabhupada Sends Tamala to China:
The Inside Story, and More…

It’s been very interesting for me to read so many online accounts about, ‘when Srila Prabhupada sent Tamal to China’, for disrupting the US temples. Not surprisingly, not one of the accounts I read has given the exact details regarding how it actually went down. It’s quite a fascinating story, and I’ve told it many times privately. This is the first time in print in public.

I was also sad to see that there’s so much misinformation and distortion online about many details of ISKCON history during Srila Prabhupada’s lila, so I felt compelled to share this particular story from my unique perspective as a primary participant in these events, as well as some events that ensued, that were directly related in ways that most are not aware.

I’m writing more or less in the same mood I had back then, and in a voice that those who know me, will recognize instantly. First of all, I didn’t see or treat our GBC or sannyassi godbrothers as the spiritually exalted devotees many of them either pretended to be, or shamelessly allowed others to treat them. I knew full well that we were all on the same platform – struggling neophyte devotees from mleccha backgrounds.

Thus, I never treated them as anything but peers and brothers of the same family. The true hierarchy was simple – Srila Prabhupada , and then us. I was respectful, but I didn’t hesitate to speak the truth or put them in their place, as those who served with me know well. There’s a fine line between Vaishnava aparadha and Vaishnava spanking between peers. Let the spanking begin! [Read More…]

Nitāi-Pada-Kamala Purport – Lord Nityānanda Prabhu’s Appearance Day


 Nitāi-Pada-Kamala Purport
Los Angeles, January 31, 1969

Prabhupāda: (sings)

nitāi-pada-kamala, koṭi-candra-suśītala, je chāyāy jagata jurāy heno nitāi bine bhāi, rādhā-kṛṣṇa pāite nāi, dṛḍha kori’ dharo nitāir pāy

se sambandha nāhi jā’r, bṛthā janma gelo tā’r, sei paśu boro durācār nitāi nā bolilo mukhe, majilo saṁsāra-sukhe, vidyā-kule ki koribe tār

Nitāi-pada-kamala, koṭi-candra-suśītala, je chāyāy jagata jurāy. This is a song by Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura, a great ācārya of the Gauḍīya-vaiṣṇava-sampradāya. He has written many songs about the Vaiṣṇava philosophy, and they are approved as completely corresponding with Vedic instructions. So here Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura is singing that “The whole world is suffering under the blazing fire of material existence. Therefore, if one takes the shelter of the lotus feet of Lord Nityānanda…,” whose birthday is today, 31st, January, 1969. So we should relish this instruction of Narottama dāsa Ṭhākura that in order to get relief from the pangs of blazing fire of this material existence, one should take shelter of the lotus feet of Lord Nityānanda because it is as cooling as the moon rays combined together of millions of moons. That means one will immediately find peaceful atmosphere. Just like a man works whole day and if he comes under the moonshine he feels relief.

Similarly, any materialistic man who comes under the shelter of Lord Nityānanda will immediately feel that relief. Then he says, [Read More…]

Srila Prabhupada’s Gift to the World

Prabhupada: Keep this sun always shining. Then these glowworms will be finished.

Immortal Charity:
Srila Prabhupada’s Gift to the World
By Narasimha das

sarve vedāś ca yajñāś ca / tapo dānāni cānagha
jīvābhaya-pradānasya / na kurvīran kalām api

“O spotless one, your answers to all these questions will grant immunity for all material miseries. Such charity is greater than all Vedic charities, sacrifices, penances and so on.”  (Srimad-Bhagavatam, 3.7.41)

Purport: “The highest perfectional work of charity it to give people in general immunity from the anxieties of material existence. This can be done only by performing activities in devotional service to the Lord. Such knowledge is incomparable. Cultivation of knowledge in the Vedas, performance of sacrifice, and distribution of munificent charities all together cannot form even a part of the immunity from the pangs of material existence that is gained from devotional service. The charity of Maitreya not only will help Vidura, but, due to its universal nature, will deliver all others in all times. Thus Maitreya is immortal.” (SB.3.7.41, Purport)

In this section of Third Canto Bhagavatam, Vidura puts forward many questions to Maitreya Rishi. His aim was to point out the principles of transcendental loving service to the Lord. He knew that by this understanding anyone, past, present or future, will be liberated from the miseries of material existence and return to the spiritual world via the methods of pure devotion.

In this age Srila Prabhupada has adjusted and prescribed methods of devotional service, as described in the Vedas, the Puranas, the Upanisads and Vaishnava commentaries, in a way suitable not only for highly intellectual sadhus of Vedic times but for people in general—even those of this present degraded age.

The charity of Srila Prabhupada is meant not only for a small group of disciples that he personally met and guided but, due to its “universal nature, will deliver all others in all times”. Thus Srila Prabhupada, like Maitreya Rishi, is immortal. This mystery can never be appreciated by posers whose ulterior aim is to exploit the eternal mission of the Supreme Lord for material profit, or personal ambition.  Nor can it be understood by mayavadis, impersonalists, sahajiyas or, in many cases, the prakrita-bhaktas, who deliberately remain attached to this material world in spite of all good instructions for detachment.

“The demigods in the heavenly planets, and many devotees on this planet also, want to remain in the material world as devotees of the Lord and take advantage of material happiness. They do so at the risk of falling down to the lower status of existence, and this makes the Lord dissatisfied with them.” (SB.3.9.12, Purport)
