Now I hear that I am being accused of being offensive.
That is quite a hypocritical statement coming from the opposing party, who have committed and are still committing innumerable and countless offenses at the lotus feet of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the greatest philosopher and religious reformer of modern times. And that’s where it matters most. The rest is truly small change only. Of course, those who have a ME-centered consciousness may not accept what I am saying. There is even a ME-centered email system, I have noticed. That is their mistake indeed. But those in the opposite corner, who have a Prabhupada centered consciousness will understand and accept. In many respects, Srila Prabhupada is not different from or is ONE with GOD, Krishna. So it is a matter of Krishna consciousness, nothing more, nothing less. It is a matter of Krishna consciousness!
Just to support in any way, –in particular to produce and mass-distribute– the fake and fraudulent Bhagavad-gita As It Is NOT by the atheist Jayadvaita is a colossal and unforgivable offense and betrayal at the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada, the Founder-Acarya of ISKCON, (The International Society for Krishna Consciousness), Founder of the BBT, (the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust), Founder of BTG in the 1940ties, (Back To Godhead Magazine) and author of countless top quality volumes on self-realization, the essential function of this human form of life. And this is so because Bhagavad-gita As It Is NOT by the atheist Jayadavaita is a colossal and massive offense, insult to and betrayal of Srila Prabhupada, and consequently a fake and fraudulent market product. Through his editorial policies, it would be fair to say that Jayadvaita slapped, kicked, punched, and stabbed Srila Prabhupada. We are waiting for the final analysis results of a GBC-appointed committee into the matter. In all honesty, it cannot be called Bhagavad-gita As It Is by His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Here lies the fraud! It must be called Bhagavad-gita As It Is NOT by the atheist Jayadvaita instead. Yes, here lies the fraud. And there are three culpable parties that are still perpetuating to this day this worldwide, global fraud: Number one is the editor and atheist Jayadavaita, number two is the publishing house called The Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (BBT) and number three is the mass-distributor, The International Society for Krishna Consciousness or ISKCON.
And as I have already explained once, my position is to be Srila Prabhupada’s, my Divine Master’s, dog and defend Him ferociously and to the best of my ability from the attack of a pack of innumerable, mostly smaller dogs. –We seem to be all dogs in this family, are we not?– It is not that strength always wins against numbers. The strong should not be under such an illusion. Sometimes youtube.com suggests that a great number of African wild dogs will prevail over one single lion or lioness. Against a pride of lions, however, no one but the highly unfair and misled gun and bullet hunter will stand a chance. In India, real and genuine princes used to face tigers with a sword only to practice the killing art required to be a king. The dead tiger would be given a royal procession. The king has to punish outlaws, therefore he has to practice killing. In Saudi Arabia, willful murderers are publicly executed and some of the paraphernalia required, like a hose to clean up, is in permanent public readiness. Here again, the source is youtube.com. Thank you youtube.com!
“Therefore ksatriyas are allowed to go in the forest and kill some animal. Because he has to practice. So what kind of animal? Not the cows or simple animal. He must kill one tiger, one lion, one jungle boar. Ferocious, very ferocious animal. That was the ksatriya’s business. Not that a rabbit [laughter] or innocent bird, sports. This kind of sporting was not allowed. If you want to kill, you must kill one rhinoceros. Then one can understand that you have power of killing. That ksatriya used to do. Even, say, twenty-five years ago, Maharaja Jaipur, he used to go into the forest every year, and he would fight with a tiger, simply with a sword. Simply with a sword. He would fight with a tiger in the jungle, and he was so expert, he would kill. And then the tiger would be brought in procession, in royal procession. Because the king used to say, “This tiger is the king of forest, or the lion is the king of the forest. I am also king. So after his death, there must be a royal reception.” So this was…, the function was going on.” Ref. VedaBase => Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.8.46 – May 8, 1973, Los Angeles
I have only two weapons. The first weapon is barking loud and clear, if and when the circumstances require. The second weapon is biting indeed. It is probably worth at this point to remind everyone that just recently, on Christmas eve 2021 of all days, on the Eastern Australian Seaboard Gold Coast of worldwide fame, a house dog very cowardly bit to death the house child of 5 years old. The dog was immediately euthanized by the agents of Gold Coast City Council. And rightly so! My point is that dog bite is no casual or laughing matter. Health authorities strongly advise getting a tetanus shot immediately, at the least. I have been attacked by dogs on several occasions because, in the service of my Divine and Illustrious Master, I travel from door to door. Once also I have been bitten in the heel by a very sly dog. Often the offending dogs get the unconditional support of their masters. As far as I am concerned, I am a straightforward dog, and a fair fighting dog, Australian style. One automatically imbibes the values of one’s environment and develops his own values by that very contact. Australia is the greatest and nicest place on this planet earth, very much favorable for the cultivation of self-realization, a brand new “out of the box” version of old India, the mother country for self-realization. “Nava-Bharata” or “New India” is a proper designation for Australia. Australia, I owe you a bit. And because I am a good investment, I shall pay you back in due course.
In particular the corresponding secretary of the Governing Body Commission of ISKCON, His Grace Ananda Tirtha Das, a junior member of the team, has had the audacity to accuse me and finger point at me in such a way and refuses to carry out his duties in relation to this humble self. He is emphatically wrong! There is a wise Australian saying that when we point one single finger at others, we automatically point three fingers at ourselves. I have known this person since his childhood along with his now departed parents. It seems to me that this person has not evolved much. Krishna consciousness philosophy is definitely not for simpletons to be understood on their own. It is spiritual dialectism. Just as we have Karl Marx’s powerful material dialectism, we have also Srila Prabhupada’s and the parampara’s even more powerful spiritual dialectism. Simpletons are definitely excluded from its understanding. That is a fact! That does not mean however that at least theoretically, simpletons cannot practice Krishna consciousness under proper guidance. He may have a one-directional, ordinary brain only, whereas a dialectical brain is required to really and properly understand the topmost philosophy of Krishna consciousness. It is just like the Sanskrit language of which Srila Prabhupada says:
“Yes, Sanskrit is spoken not only on Krishna Loka but also in higher planets, of the demigods. It is called the language of God and the demigods. It was spoken also on this planet, when people were all godly, they used to speak in Sanskrit. Sanskrit is the origin of all languages of the civilized peoples. It is most perfect, not only descriptive; the word “Sanskrit” means “the most perfect”. Because not a single word you can pronounce without having a bona fide principle. It is not like the English language, “but, put” with irrational difference in pronunciation, no principles. (General remark) Sanskrit isn’t like that. Therefore it is perfect. It isn’t whimsical. English poetry has one line one inch long, next line 600 inches long. Sanskrit is not like that. There are strict principles, and it is so beautiful. Therefore in Sanskrit language not an ordinary man can become a poet. (Relevant to our context) No other language of the world can be compared with it. No other language of the world is so perfect as Sanskrit. Any language near to Sanskrit language (like Bengali) is nearer to perfection. Sanskrit is pronounced same way here or there, it is standard.” Ref. VedaBase => Letter to: Madhusudana — Los Angeles 1 February, 1968
