It’s Not On Prabhupada

by Kailäsa Candra däsa

“Thus, the so-called sannyäsés try to construct another home in the name of the sannyäsa-äçrama and glide down into all sorts of luxury at the expense of others. So, all these varëas and äçramas have now become so many transcendental frauds.”
Light of the Bhägavat, Verse 32

World monarchy has failed ever since kings began to satisfy their personal senses with the taxes accumulated from the citizens.”
Çrémad-Bhägavatam, 4.12.10, purport

“The baseness so commonly charged to religion’s account (is) not chargeable at all to religion proper but rather to religion’s wicked practical partner, the spirit of corporate dominion. And the bigotries are . . . in turn chargeable to religion’s wicked intellectual partner, the spirit of dogmatic dominion.

Jaya Çréla Prabhupäda

It is called the Gauòéya paramparä, well-known throughout India, the disciplic succession of Vaiñëava spiritual masters beginning with the Supreme Personality of Godhead Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu Himself. Then, He is followed by Rüpa Gosvämé, Raghunätha däs Gosvämé, Kåñëadäsa Kaviräj Gosvämé, Narottama däs Öhäkura, Viçvanätha Cakravarté Öhäkura, Jagannätha däs bäbäjé, Bhaktivinoda Öhäkura, Gaura Kiçora däs bäbäjé. After that, there are these two Successor Äcaryas: Çréla Bhaktisiddhänta Sarasväté Gosvämé and Çréla Prabhupäda; they were a very special blessing for this planet.

After these Äcarya manifestations, there has now come a state of turmoil, one which is somewhat subtle but horrendously deviant in many ways. Of course, very soon after Caitanya Mahäprabhu’s manifestation and disappearance, there came into being many pseudo sects or sahajiya groups (pretender Vaisnavas) like Kartäbhajäs, who proclaimed themselves to be Chaitanya Mahäprabhu. Up to the Nineteenth Century, there were also Vairäginés, females allegedly propagating bhakti in the renounced order, which is forbidden.

When Tyranny is Disguised
as Absolute Truth

by Kailäsa Candra däsa

Prabhupäda: He has taken these ideas from the Vedic literature.
Hayagréva: When this form degenerates, it becomes a tyranny.
Prabhupäda: Yes.
Dialectical Spiritualism, Critique of Plato

“. . . so-called dharmas, they are simply cheating, because that will not benefit anybody, the followers or the dictators.”
Platform Lecture in Bombay, 11-11-74

“The totalitarian mass leaders base their propaganda on the correct psychological assumption that . . . one could make people believe the most fantastic statements one day and trust that, if the next day they were given irrefutable proof of their falsehood, they would take refuge in cynicism . . . they would protest that they had known all along that the statement was a lie and would admire the leaders for their superior tactical cleverness.”
Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism


The Self-Serving Rationalizations
of “ISKCON” and Rittvik

by Kailäsa Candra däsa

In the name of persuasion, “ISKCON” employed (and certainly still employs) argumentum ad hominem, argumentum ad baculum, and reductio ad absurdum as weapons for spreading its movement, along with its untenable propositions. Imitating its elder brother—but mostly in a different way–Rittvik attempts to bamboozle people into joining its factions by only what appears to be persuasive tactics.

While one Left Coast rittvik specializes in argumentum ad hominem, on the whole, Rittvik polemicists are masters at bad logic, with most of that centering around reductio ad absurdum. Rittvik promulgates the absurd proposition that you can be genuinely and institutionally initiated by a non-manifest spiritual master. This is anti-Vedic, and none of the Vaishnava lines still functioning today has ever employed such an unauthorized concoction.


Sincere Bhajan Better Than

by Bhakta Ernest Dras

“Except for the association of pure devotees, any association is called kaitava, cheating.”
Teachings of Lord Caitanya, Original Edition, Ch.15, para. 28

According to Teachings of Lord Caitanya, there are three classes of pure devotees: First, second, and third-class pure devotees. Yes, even the third-class devotee, neophyte, if he or she is properly situated in devotional service under the shelter of bona fide disciplic succession, is considered a pure devotee. Of course, all neophyte Vaiñëavas are still conditioned souls. They are not ordinary men or women, but they are still conditioned by anarthas and lack steadiness in self-realization. When they act in devotional service, they are, at that time (for that time), considered pure devotees.

The VAISHNAVA FOUNDATION was founded in order to provide a forum for honest seekers of the Absolute Truth. Inherent in the purposes of the Foundation is the need to discriminate between sentimentally-driven Kåñëa consciousness and Kåñëa consciousness which is actually based on the instructions of the previous spiritual masters. As such, the Foundation keeps the emphasis on knowledge and realization, as opposed to absorption in congregationalism.

The Vaishnava Foundation spares no effort in presenting the philosophy of Kåñëa consciousness as it was presented most recently by our spiritual master, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedänta Swämi Prabhupäda. In this way, the Vaishnava Foundation does not sacrifice the Absolute Truth for the sake of some ephemeral unity or so-called cooperation.

In addition to offering a firm philosophical foundation, the Foundation sheds special light on the plight of the Kåñëa consciousness movement since the departure of His Divine Grace in November of 1977.

The Vaishnava Foundation was founded in 1986 by Kailäsa Candra däsa, an initiated disciple of Swämi Prabhupäda. The Foundation presents the same message and spirit that was available during the manifest physical presence of His Divine Grace, repeating his message as it is according to experience, logic, and personal realization. This is possible due to the leadership of Çréman Kailäsa Candra däsa, who represents Çréla Prabhupäda and directs service activities for the members of the foundation. Kailäsa prabhu’s teachings preserve the philosophy of Çréla Prabhupäda, because he has never allowed himself to come under the influence of party-spirit factions, such as the zonal äcäryas or those that have come after.

Çréla Prabhupäda was extremely pleased by devotees who were familiar enough with his books to resist misleading presentations by deluded leaders of his movement, such as the four sannyäsés of 1970. Strictly adhering to Çréla Prabhupäda’s instructions, Kailäsa prabhu has provided such an alternative since at least 1979. (see biography)

Those who affiliate with the Foundation obtain the opportunity to help him in this effort and thus obtain the mercy of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedänta Swämi Prabhupäda.

Svarüpa-jïäna--or intrinsic knowledge concerning the sädhaka, the sädhana, and sädhya--is non different from the svarüpa of çuddha bhakti. When such svarüpa-jïäna has not yet arisen in a sädhaka--but the desire to cross over the ocean of material existence has arisen within him--then the symptoms of bhakti visible in him at that time are merely bhaktyäbhäsa. This bhaktyäbhäsa transforms into çuddha-bhakti when one obtains svarüpa-jïäna. Even for Vaiñëavas duly initiated into a genuine sampradäya, the vastu-prabha--the illumination of one's identity arising from the mantra received upon initiation by his dékñä-guru--does not appear until he receives the enlightenment of his svarüpa-jïäna by the mercy of çikñä-guru. Due to ignorance of svarüpa-jïäna, svarüpa-çuddha-bhakti remains covered. Hence, only bhaktyäbhäsa is visible.

Unfortunately, in present day society, in the name of çuddha-bhakti, various types of mixed devotion--such as karma-miçra, jïäna-miçra, and yoga-miçra, as well as various polluted and imaginary conceptions, are spreading like germs of plague. People in general consider these polluted and mixed conceptions to be bhakti. They respect them as such and thus are deprived of çuddha-bhakti. These polluted and mixed conceptions are our greatest enemies.

Some people say that there is no value in bhakti, that God is only imaginary sentiment, that man has merely created the image of God through imagination, and that bhakti is a diseased state, unable to benefit us in any way. These types of opponents cannot harm us much, because we easily recognize them and avoid them. However, those who propagate bhagavad-bhakti as the highest dharma--yet behave against the principles of çuddha-bhakti--can be especially harmful to us. In the name of bhakti, they instruct us against the actual principles of bhakti. This ultimately leads us to a path that is diametrically opposed to bhagavad-bhakti. Therefore, with great endeavor, our previous äcäryas have defined the svarüpa or intrinsic nature of bhakti, repeatedly cautioning us to keep away from polluted and mixed concepts.

The following five articles constitute the core of the Vaishnava Foundation presentation. They are essential for anyone desiring to make tangible progress in spiritual life at the present time.

On Sufficient Guidance
This in-depth treatise by Kailasa Candra dasa covers a wide range of spiritual topics essential for anyone who wishes to understand Krishna Consciousness as it is. Topics include: the qualifications of the bona fide madhyama devotee, the rittvik concoction, and a discussion of the causes underlying the acceptance of an unqualified "spiritual master."

Same Old Brave New "ISKCON"
Article 1, Part 1
Article 1, Part 2
Article 2, Part 1
Article 2, Part 2
Article 3, Part 1
In this series of articles, Kailasa Candra prabhu discusses some of the Western contaminations currently present in the "ISKCON" institution and leadership.

"ISKCON" Gurus, Initiations, and Party Men
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5
In this booklet-length treatise Kailasa Candra dasa chronicles the ethically criminal actions of the lead party men of corporate "ISKCON" as they covered the original movement of Srila Prabhupada with their opportunistic self-interest, leaving the world with little more than the latest version of professional Bhagavatam reciters.

The Positive Alternative
"Human reason fails to understand how by serving the devotee bhagavata or the book bhagavat one gets gradual promotion on the path of devotion. But, actually, these are facts."S.B. 1.2.18, purport. By adopting the positive alternative of the book bhagavat, devotees of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada could make a legitimate, effective, and, most importantly, authorized connection with both him and his sampradaya. They could be confident that they were making advancement on the path of Krishna consciousness realization.
