THE CHIEF RECOMMENDATION
IS CREATING HAVOC
"There must be now checking that all these rascals may not join and spoil the movement. You should not admit."
Prabhupada: Now, the Revatinandana and this man and Syamasundara is making a clique. I can understand. What they are planning, that also I know. But I don't wish to disclose it. So if these things come, then how this movement will go on? Politics, diplomacy, fraud, cheating, these are the general qualification of the western countries.
Prabhupada: Politics, diplomacy, fraud, cheating. These things are the general qualification of the western people. Do you admit or not?
Prabhupada: If they are, these things come within our movement, then it will not be succesful. Tat-paratvena nirmalam. One has to become purified. Even sometimes we have to take... But that is for Krsna's. There must be now checking that all these rascals may not join and spoil the movement. You should not admit.
Bali Mardana: Yes.
Prabhupada: They can come and go.
Bali Mardana: We should not make a haven for rascals.
Bali Mardana: We should not create a haven for rascals.
Prabhupada: Yes. So how it will be done unless you GBC members become very strong and with good brain?
(S.P. Morning Walk at Marine del Rey July 13, 1974, Los Angeles)
Note: Politics, diplomacy, fraud, cheating, this has being the program of the GBC all along. These things have polluted theirs brains and spoiled the real Hare Krsna movement. ISGONE is a haven for rascals who would never have being admitted in the genuine ISKCON under a strong GBC with good brain. Therefore the abuse that has taken place on all levels is due to the GBC disobeying Srila Prabhupada's clear instructions.
They did not check the rascals joining the movement, rather their cheating mentality attracted the rascals, drove away devotees and completely turned off any sincere souls from joining the movement. In a haven of rascals we cannot expect child worship, cow protection or brahminical culture, THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE !
The process of checking the rascals is described by Srila Prabhupada as follows:
So therefore the process is before accepting a guru, one must hear him at least for one year. And when he's convinced that "Here is actually a guru who can teach me," then you accept him, guru. Don't accept whimsically. This system now should stop that somebody's coming for three days--"Prabhupada, initiate him." Why? First of all see whether he's fit for becoming a disciple; then recommend. Otherwise, don't recommend. Because the chief recommendation is creating havoc. One is not fit for becoming a student, disciple, and he's accepting discipleship, and after three days he's going away. This should not be allowed. Therefore, in the Bhakti-rasamrta..., er, Hari-bhakti-vilasa by Sanatana Gosvami it is directed that the spiritual master and the disciple must meet together at least for one year so that the disciple may also understand that "Here is a person whom I can accept as my guru," and the guru also can see that "Here is a person who is fit for becoming my disciple." Then the business is nice. Because the business is tad viddhi pranipatena, one must be prepared to surrender. So unless that character is there, surrendering, how he can become a disciple? It is not possible.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture 1.16.25 Hawaii, January 21, 1974)
Note: So the chief recommendation is creating havoc not Srila Prabhupada's teachings. Srila Prabhupada's teachings following the Hari-bhakti-vilasa by Sanatana Gosvami has being completely rejected !
Srila Prabhupada has repeatedly stressed the importance of hearing from the self realized soul. How many people have spent one year patiently hearing Srila Prabhupada give class daily and also carefully studied all his books before accepting him as guru ?
Why has Srila Prabhupada not being allowed to give class on a daily basis for over 23 years ?
He reasons ill who tells that Vaisnavas die when thou art living still in sound. The Vaisnavas die to live and living try to spread the holy name around.
( Bhaktivinode Thakur.)
Perhaps the answer could be, that in a haven of rascals one never begins to follow the path of devotional service. Rascals will take shelter of bigger rascals and take pleasure in hearing their milk touched by the lips of a serpent talks. The opportunity to come in contact with Srila Prabhupada and hear from him patiently is offered to a person who is sincere, not to rascals who's brains are polluted by politics, diplomacy, fraud, and cheating.
When by good fortune one comes in contact with a pure devotee and hears from him patiently, one begins to follow the path of devotional service. Such an opportunity is offered to a person who is sincere. (N.O.I.)
