The Poison Conspiracy Antidote – Chapter 15: Playing Chicken!

Calling Sisupala’s Bluff

The so-called evidence compiled by the Goof team is sloppy, unprofessional, speculative, and pragmatically absurd.   Those who created this huge conspiracy originally came just short of admitting how it is a tactical maneuver that would get laughed out of court if they tried to take it there.

“Since the nature and circumstances of crimes of poisoning do not lend themselves to easy or smooth legal indictments or convictions, the next best effective forum to obtain justice and historical truth is in the public domain. Through the press and various other media, everyone who cares to know may be informed of the evidence, out in the open. The hope is that this will spur further participation and research into the investigation at hand, resulting in further verification and the ultimate identification and apprehension of the poisoners.” -SHPM p.241

Translation of the above: We can’t meet the standards of the legal world… so let’s start up a lot of rumors, churn up everyone’s emotions, generate hundreds of pages of dubious, incorrect, irrelevant paperwork, turn Chicken Little loose and hope we can rally together enough bring-your-favorite-noose participants to create a world-wide lynch mob.  Can I get a ki Jaya!   read more

“I am a member of ISKCON.” Srila Prabhupada by Mahavishnu Swami

Dear followers of Srila Prabhupada,

Please accept my humble obeisances! All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!

As I see it ISKCON is at a crucial juncture in its history. ‘Who is the head or captain of the ISKCON ship?’ Shall we choose the ISKCON Governing Body (GBC) or shall we choose our ISKCON Founder-Acarya His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, (Srila Prabhupada)? read more

Srirangam Sravana Kirtana Camp 2018 The Editors

Srirangam, the largest functional temple in the world at 156 acres is the seat of the Sri Vaisnava sampradaya and the first and most important of the Sri Vaisnava 108 Divya desams. The Deity of Ranganatha Swami and the Vimaana on the temple are Svayambhu (self-manifested) having come directly from the milk ocean where Ksirodakshayi Visnu reclines on Ananta Sesa. Sri Ramanujacarya the acarya of the Si Vaisnava sampradaya resided here for many years and his actual transcendental form is still kept embalmed in a Samadhi in the southeastern part of the temple complex.

This is also the place where Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu spent the most time after Navadvipa and Jagannatha Puri. Sri Gopal Bhatta Goswami of the Six Goswamis of Vrindavana came from Srirangam; it was in his house that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu resided in during the four months of caturmasya that He stayed here. Gopal Bhatta Goswami’s descendants are still present there. read more

The Last Darshan by Manidhara Dasa ( ACBSP )

When I arrived Saturday night with my sankirtan van at the temple, I wondered where the others were. The parking lot was empty, and I thought nobody could distribute Srila Prabhupada’s books that long. By that time, our meditation on Srila Prabhupada intensified in the form of endless book distribution marathons, as we had heard about His Divine Grace laying down in Vrndavana and fasting for a month. Yes! One time, a few crumbs of prasadam arrived in the mail, the maha maha of the only kachori He ate. And these precious remnants were carefully distributed in microscopic size from one devotee to another.

Srila Prabhupada repeatedly said that the only thing keeping Him alive is the distribution of His books. Nobody could imagine Srila Prabhupada leaving us behind at this stage. And His statement “whenever I read the sankirtan results I feel like a young boy” drove us to higher and higher book distribution results. Whenever we presented Srila Prabhupada the new results, He commented. “Double it!” Some devotee even printed buttons to be carried on our chest with one single slogan: “Double it!” And so we doubled it again. One marathon followed the other in a desperate attempt to keep Srila Prabhupada with us. The German yatra was at this time on the top of the world.

While looking for somebody and parking my car, finally, I saw someone. The last remaining devotee ran out of the temple door and told me the news: “Srila Prabhupada is in London!” I couldn’t believe it. How did He get there, rising from His bed, fasting? read more

Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD-Disingenuous)

HPD Definition: People with Histrionic Personality Disorder have a high need for attention, make loud and inappropriate appearances, exaggerate their behaviors and emotions, and crave stimulation.

Disingenuous:  Underhanded, double-dealing, scheming, contriving, plotting, crafty, false-hearted; egocentric, insincere, deceitful, calculating, guileful.

Liar, liar, pants on fire?  Besides being an extremely juvenile expression, this reaction is way too disproportional and exaggerated for the stimulus that that triggered it;When this type of response is stacked up on top of all the other bazaar, twisted, and disingenuous things we have thus uncovered in this paper, it all starts to look like the classic symptoms of someone suffering from a Histrionic Personality Disorder. read more

The Poison Conspiracy Antidote – Chapter 13: Let’s Get Legal by Mayeśvara Dāsa ( ACBSP )

Innocent Until Proven Guilty

The glaring proof that none of the prestidigitations we are being offered is legitimate is that, if it was, a court case would have been filed a long time ago.  Those perpetuating this myth know all too well that these tales of who-done-it, intrigue would never survive the scrutiny of a good defense attorney. When it all gets thrown out in court the charade would fall apart, and that would be an abrupt end for everyone, that is, except the eccentrics pushing their real agenda to create perpetual chaos that only an unresolved dispute could generate.

So here I will provide a few more reasons to not lose any more sleep about this stupid allegation that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned by men he trusted, men who loved him dearly.  Yes, it’s easy to throw together some doubts – and “ya” know what – in the real world that’s all one has to do to crush all of these dark, contemptuous tales of egos gone wild.

Our legal system assumes that an individual is innocent until proven guilty.  The burden of proving guilt rests completely on those that allege a crime has been committed.  If someone is accused of murder, they have a right to a jury trial – that is the normal procedure.   To get a conviction for murder requires a unanimous decision of all 12 jurors who are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the alleged crime has been committed.  If circumstantial evidence suggests a possibility of innocence, the prosecution has the burden of disproving that possibility. read more

Adhyatmika  Miseries

Tamal Krishna Goswami was indeed a complex, intense, and high profile personality but he also had a soft side that I personally got to know as did many others.   Certainly, his numerous disciples don’t experience him to be the terrible monster that he is portrayed as by the oh-so-righteous Poop Team.  Many people discovered the softer side of Tamal as the reactions he got from his more brazen earlier years caught up to him and as he entered into deeper realms of spiritual consciousness.  Others may not have known the softer side of Tamal but he kept returning to Srila Prabhupada for shelter, guidance, encouragement, and survival.   Many others can testify that but we see no acknowledgment of any of this by this self-congratulating brahminically equipoised Truth Committee.   NO. What we find in their report is a crucifixion.

On several occasions, Tamal gives us a peek into the terribly difficult types of dilemmas he had to cope with while serving Srila Prabhupada and the stress he was under.

‘Srila Prabhupada said: My feet are swelling, my teeth are getting loose, I am passing urine too frequently. These are the first signs that death is coming.’ read more

The Poison Conspiracy Antidote – Chapter 11 – Crucify Him! (Tamal Krishna Goswami) by Mayeśvara Dāsa ( ACBSP )

Some Were Curious, Some Were Crazy!

As the symptoms of Srila Prabhupada’s physical body began to impede on his ability to translate, all his disciples worldwide became more concerned about his longevity.    We had become so dependent on his guidance, inspiration, and Krishna Conscious nurturing that the thought of His Divine Grace leaving us was of great concern to every devotee in the Hare Krishna movement.  Many of us were requested to keep doing our daily duties.  Book distribution had to still go on, guests had to be greeted, feasts had to be cooked, deities had to be worshiped and the temples had to stay open.

Those who met Srila Prabhupada in the very early days of the late 1960’s had already established a very intimate relationship with him on a deep level many of us who came later never had the good fortune to experience.   We are all unique individuals and as the world learned about Srila Prabhupada, all sorts of characters showed up to see what he was doing.  Some were curious, some were serious, some left, some stayed, some got initiated, some fell down, some soared to the top and some were crazy.  Tamal Krishna was one of those who seemed to understand very quickly the concept of going after Krishna with the intense greed Ramananda Roy spoke about:

“‘Pure devotional service in Krsna consciousness cannot be had even by pious activity in hundreds and thousands of lives. It can be attained only by paying one price — that is, intense greed to obtain it. If it is available somewhere, one must purchase it without delay.'”- Madhya 8.70 read more

The Poison Conspiracy Antidote – Chapter 10 – Not Just Unlikely… Impossible!

Think Zebra Prognosis!?

On one hand, the Goof Team tells us that the conspirators executed this very intricate plot over the course of 12 months, a plot that required perfectly measured doses of a poison nobody ever heard of, or could possibly know how to use, so Srila Prabhupada would NOT immediately be forced out of his body and leave evidence that he had been poisoned.  Yet…

On the other hand, the same people are telling us that in March, Srila Prabhupada’s hair indicated a reading that is 300 times what is considered normal.  All toxicologists confirm that readings such as this could not possibly be due to endogenous (internal) sources since nobody could possibly survive a dose of cadmium large enough to produce such astronomical deposits in the hair! That is because most ingested cadmium (would) pass through the gastrointestinal tract without being absorbed  as explained above!)

Nothing the Goof Team tells us makes any coherent sense! They tell us that “Expert” analysis of Srila Prabhupada’s hair indicated that he had 300 times a lethal level of cadmium in his body in March 1977.  Medical experts tell us it is virtually impossible for someone to ever accumulate such a high reading because that just can’t occur overnight!  NONE OF THIS IS EVEN POSSIBLE! Period. Read that last portion again! What the Goof Team is trying to pass off is simply NOT POSSIBLE. It’s Chicken Little who was too dumb to realize she got clunked on the head with an acorn and instead began running around based on the absurd notion that the sky was falling.  She enrolled a whole bunch of her other inattentive friends into believing what rational people understand is an impossible event! read more

I Remember Bombay

I spent some of the best years of my life at Juhu as a servant of Shrila Prabhupada’s Mission. For it is the greatest joy to render service unto Lord Shri Krishna’s pure devotee. For that service is liberating, enlightening, enlivening, and always filled with divine bliss.

And there at Hare Krishna Land, you have the Divine Purveyors of the highest level of bliss, Their Lordships Shri Shri Radha and Rasa Bihari.

I remember first coming to Juhu, to the Hare Krishna Land beach jungle in 1973. And how quickly Shrila Prabhupada arranged for the construction of the spiritual center His Divine Grace would call “his office.” How quickly arose this great gift to the mega-polis Bombay. Up to that time, Bombay was enjoying every imaginable facility for sense gratification. But in this modern city of an ancient land, one thing was missing–and that was Krishna consciousness. read more
