Bhakti Caru Swami's Very Strange Ascent

BY: PRAHLADA NRSIMHA DAS

Sep 11, 2017 — FRANCE (SUN) —

We can sometimes be very surprised and, somehow, wonder about the incredible, irresistible and very fast ascent in ISKCON of someone like Bhakti Caru Swami. Someone we know not to be a person who ever did real basic difficult service like anyone and who is not particularly intelligent in the philosophical field. Just read his articles and hear his class... Field which is precisely our and the Sampradaya's field. Devotion, or so-called devotion, without a strict respect of philosophy, logic and siddhanta is only sentimentalism. Which definitively has nothing to do with Krsna Consciousness. But only with religiosity. Which was precisely what Srila Prabhupada did not want. And the whole Sampradaya with him.

Mundane material religion is described as completely aparampara. And even more when it comes and alters the pure message of sanatana-dharma which was given us by Lord Caitanya, Srila Prabhupada and the parampara. In this case, it even appears as being demoniac. And even more when the original books, which were given to us by Srila Prabhupada in order to allow us to, precisely, escape materialism, impersonalism and any kind of mundane religion, and to have access to sanatana-dharma, are at the moment methodically altered, tampered with and even litterally changed and destroyed. Moreover, when the original books printed and distributed by sincere outside devotees are immediately, or as fast as possible, blocked by the BBTI and withdrawed from the market and those devotees' ownership.

Bhakti Caru is the GBC Chairman and therefore, de facto, is and fully accepts to be responsible of this whole thing. Even if BBTI is maybe iindependant. Which is also the result of very bad management If Bhakti Caru does not agree with all those actions and others (suppising that he is not at the origin of them), he is free to give immediately his resignation. In the opposite case, he has to assume all that. He maybe feels good about those things, but I am impatient to see Srila Prabhupada's and Krsna's reactions when he will give his very wise and reasonable explanations. Just before giving them to Yamaraja. I have nothing personal against Bhakti Caru. Only his actions are a problem for me and many others.

But let's come back to our subject! We can therefore be surprised that one of the youngest Prabhupada disciples, who joined at the end of 1976 or 1977, but always speaks to us at lenght about Srila Prabhupada as if he has served him for decades, is almost permanently GBC Chairman. There are so many other older Prabhupada disciples who served and knew him much more! And Bhakti Caru's ascent was very fast. Becoming guru not even 10 years after he joined, always and from the very beginning, having high positions, and already Chairman in 1989. For someone who is really not particularly clever nor brilliant, it is fascinating!

I know that Srila Prabhupada said good about him. But he said good too sometimes about Kirtananda and probably Bhavananda. Therefore, we can maybe classify that as a great mystery, as well as the circles in the fields, how the Egyptian pyramids were constructed, or the Roswell man.

Therefore, we can reasonably wonder, considering the real demoniac direction that ISKCON takes at the moment, by literally changing radically Prabhupada's books which are supposed to be our basis, if Bhakti Caru's irresistible ascent is not a reward from someone invisible for us, because of his service of cooking for Srila Prabhupada, during the last months of his life, when his health was strangely becoming worse and worse almost everyday.

It is only a question which comes to our mind.

I really don't particularly enjoy raising all those kinds of subjects and others which are discussed by everyone in the Sun and other places. Even the material world and society appear many times as being much more fresh! But sorry! You and only you, ISKCON, force us to do that! It is not really the top-pleasure for us!

Maybe Bhakti Caru and others are only far more foolish than we suppose... And that could explain what is happening in ISKCON at the moment. Unfortunately, even in such a case, it can not be a real excuse.

    "To those who are constantly devoted and worship Me with love, I give the understanding by which they can come to Me." (Bg 10-10)

So, if someone is really sincere, he (she) receives from Krsna the intelligence which, among other things, will prevent him from making huge disastrous, almost beyond repair mistakes.

But I am not, and we are not, obtuse at all! If Bhakti Caru and his pairs, are able to give real true acceptable good reasons for what is happening at the moment in ISKCON, we are ready to very honestly hear them. But they will have to very seriously raise the level of their explanations if they want them to be accepted or even considered by us. In the present case, it will be really not easy at all!!!

Again, it is actually not specially a pleasure to have to do what we are all doing through the Sun and other platforms. You, alone, are responsible for that.
