WHAT IS EDUCATION ?

Jayadvaita is such a snobbish idiot, a mudhah and a mayayapahrta-jnana as well, because he misuses his education to mislead people away from Srila Prabhupada and consequently away from Krishna. He is a maha-idiot because he thinks that his poor, old, Indian educated and senile spiritual master requires his masterful help at practically every word. But, people, this is just a reflection of Jayadavaita’s own idiocy. I do not hesitate to say this openly. Further down in this article, I shall show another two or three examples of his ongoing and stupid falsification, which I have just discovered again by further examination of BGAII OT. To some extent, in any case, he is systematically falsifying Srila Prabhupada’s most essential Bhagavad-gita As It Is message to the world, and thereby misleading ISKCON and giving it a bad name. Therefore Jayadvaita and his editorial party rightly deserve all kinds of countermeasures. In the Sanskrit language, it is called “pratikaram.” This word appears in the Bhagavad-gita as It Is, 1.45 in its opposite form “apratikaram”, when Arjuna proposes to quit. “Pratikaram means counteraction, and apratikaram means without any counteraction.” 730801BG.Lon.

The second reason why I must talk in such an aggressive and insulting way is that from my personal experience of past dealings with this editorial party, I clearly draw the unequivocal conclusion that this party will NOT undestand any other language and means, unfortunately. Therefore the present adversarial situation is of their own making. It is their own choice and not mine. There is a Back to Godhead magazine article, issue July / August 1995, page 28 & 29, by HH Giriraja Swami. The title of the article is “Always remain Srila Prabhupada’s dog.” So I have always been proud to count myself a part and parcel of the pack of Srila Prabhupada’s dogs, along with HH Giriraja Swami and others, I am sure of it. This is excellent, first class company, and I thank them very much for their association. But Jayadvaita is not one of them. He is an imposter, a cheater and an arrogant fool. I am able to bark loudly and if that is not enough, I shall inflict painful bites also. We sometimes hear instances of dogs who just kill humans. On Christmas evening, 24th of December 2021, on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia one family dog killed a five year old family child. Subsequently the dog was killed by the agents of the council. Such is life.

In BGAII V2 10.11, purport there are again two instances where Jayadvaita meets his illusory Mayavadi adversaries and he tries to bash and trash them, even though Srila Prabhupada only mentions “modern philosophers.” or just “philosophers.” In BGAII V2, 10.12-13, second line of the purport, the same things happens again. Srila Prabhupada dictates “modern philosophers” and Jayadvaita translates “Mayavadis philosophers.” At this point one may ask the legitimate question:”Is the imposter and misleader Jayadvaita crazy?” It should be noted that the honest Hayagriva Prabhu strictly follows in Prabhupada’s footsteps on these occasions.

In BGAII OT 10.11 Srila Prabhupada dictates “… the ultimate goal of Vishnu can be achieved only by this chant of devotional service …”

But Jayadvaita does not like the expession “chant of devotional service” and renders ” The ultimate goal, Visnu, can be attained only by this chant and by devotional service,….” Did he forget, as it seems when he wrote this sentence, that chanting is indeed devotional service?

To draw inspiration, we should look at prabhupadavani.org. Here not a single word is changed and this is the standard Srila Prabhupada expects from His editors, all context taken into account of course. The constantly speculating imposter and cheater Jayadvaita is thousands of miles from that gold standard and thereby puts the very name of ISKCON in serious danger. Not only that, he also puts both ISKCON, the retailer, and the BBT, the producer of Bhagavad-gita As It Is NOT by Jayadvaita, in dangerously vulnerable legal situations.

In a broader perspective, we have observed how in ISKCON, after the departure of Srila Prabhupada, the emphasis has shifted away from Vedic education to a rather mundane education. Nowadays it seems that a member of ISKCON is a respectable person when he has so many initials to his mane such as M.A., Ph.D., D.A.C. etc, and / or has been to some prestigious mundane education institute. Personally, I find the initials ACBSP beat by miles all other initials, and to be a student of Srila Prabhupada is not only the most prestigious kind of education and honor itself, but also awards the greatest benefits. This is confirmed in BGAII V3 9.2: “This knowledge is the king of education, the most secret of all secrets. It is the purest knowledge, and because it gives direct perception of the self by realization, it is the perfection of religion. It is everlasting and is joyfull performed.”

“The nutshell of education is defined by Canakya Pandita, that “Who is pandita, learned?” So he does not say that one who has passed M.A., Ph.D., D.A.C. No. He doesn’t say that. He says, “Any person who has learned to see like this.” What is that? Matrvat para-daresu: “Everyone’s wife should be considered…” Para-dara. Para means others’ wife. Matrvat, mother. Therefore the Vedic system is, when we address another woman, “Mother,” no other address. “Mother, can I do this? Would you like this?” The address should be “Mother.” Practice. This is practice, the brahmacari’s practice. He goes to every householder’s wife: “Mother, give me some…” Just like this child. If he is taught from the very beginning of his life that “Address all women as mother…,” that training. And intermingling with anyone, then it is a different training. That is brahmacari. So brahmacari is taught that how he should behave in society, what is the aim of life. That is brahmacari. Matrvat para-daresu.
Para-dravyesu lostravat. And other’s property? Just like garbage. Nobody goes, but I have seen. Nowadays garbage is also tackled. I have seen in Hong Kong, one woman is finding out something valuable from the garbage. This is Kali-yuga. It is untouchable, but still, people are trying to get something from the garbage, so downtrodden, this Kali-yuga. So matrvat para-daresu para-dravyesu lostravat, atmavat sarva-bhutesu: “All other living entities think like yourself.” That means your pains and pleasure, as you feel, you should take up others’ pains and pleasure, not that you protect yourself from all danger and you cut the throat of the poor animals on the plea that it has no soul. This is not education. This is education, that whether the animal has soul or not soul, we shall consider later on. But when knife is on my throat I cry, and he also cries. Why shall I say that “It has no soul, and let me kill it”? So that means he does not know how to see other living entities like himself. Buddha philosophy is based on this, that “Whatever you feel, pain, you should not inflict to others.” This is education. Matrvat para-daresu para-dravyesu lostravat atmavat.” Srimad-Bhagavatam 6.1.23 – May 23, 1976, Honolulu

AND

“So therefore the first training is given to become austere, tolerate, how to tolerate, how to call other women as “mother.” He is learning from the beginning, a small child. He is trained up to call any woman, even of his own age, not “sister” — “mother.” This is the training. Matrvat para-daresu. This is education. Matrvat para-daresu. Canakya Pandita, the great politician, has given the definition of a learned scholar. Who is learned scholar? He has given the definition. What is this? Matrvat para-daresu: to see every woman except his wife as mother. This is education. This is education, perfection of education, when you can see all women except your wife as mother. This is education.
Matrvat para-daresu para-dravyesu lostravat: and others’ property, just like garbage in the street. Nobody is interested in the garbage. You throw. That is education. And atmavat sarva-bhutesu: and thinking all living entities as your own self. If you feel pains and pleasure by something, you could not afflict the pains to others. If your throat is cut, if your head is cut, you feel so much pain, how you can cut the head of another animal? This is education. Samah sarvesu-bhutesu. This is education, three things. This is the test of education.

Where is? Where is that pandita? There is no such thing now.” Bhagavad-gita 1.26–27 – July 21, 1973, London.

It would be sad and regretable to see that ISKCON loses it special and unique function– its dharma, so to say– and joins the ranks of mundane institutions, which are already innumerable in number. ISKCON AS IT IS, as per Srila Prabhupada, owns gold, nay, ISKCON AS IT IS is made of solid gold, in every sense of the expression. It would be silly to trade it for pebbles. It has happened before, where chunks of Iskcon property were given away for a days’ wage or a pittance. But ultimately Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is in charge and whatever He decides, goes. Jay Sri Krishna!
