How It All Went Down & Why

(Everything Was Spoiled in Time)

by Kailäsa Candra däsa

HARIÙ OÀ NAMAÙ

Due to the conditioned soul’s ahaìkära, there can be no guarantees about his or her status in this life or the next, even after receiving a genuine initiation from a bona fide Vaiñëava guru. Free will is what it is, and misuse of free will triggers ahaìkära. Until bhäva is achieved, the disciple actually initiated into the guru-paramparä can fall victim to mäyä at any time. This is verified in the following excerpt from a letter to Jaya-Gopäla, dated 1-11-70:

“Regarding your question of an initiated person falling prey to the maya, the answer is that so long we are in this material world, there is always chance of being spoiled by Maya, so we must stick with vow to the Lotus Feet of Krishna. An initiated devotee is given the chance for becoming free from the entanglement of karma wheel. Initiated means beginning, not perfection.”

THAT is the Difficulty

by Kailäsa Candra däsa

HARIÙ OÀ NAMAÙ

The true believers in powerful Eastern cults advocating liberation from saàsära—and so-called “ISKCON” certainly qualifies as that—are convinced that remaining in the good graces of, and linked to, their institution and its governing body is sine quo non for any chance at ultimate deliverance. They believe that any preaching which is not approved by their institution (and its governing body) not only cannot be considered a vehicle for liberation but is, instead, leading that wayward former devotee to the path of perdition.

Cult Corruption & The Great Plan

by Kailäsa Candra däsa

HARIÙ OÀ NAMAÙ

The following excerpt is from a letter by His Divine Grace Çréla Prabhupäda to one of his temple presidents, dated 11-27-71:

“People must know that our Krishna philosophy will save the world from all kinds of dangerous conditions.”

This is in the category of prophecy, and it must come to pass. Notice the emphasis here on transcendental knowledge. We all know that Lord Caitanya’s Hare Kåñëa movement will, IN ITS PURE FORM, eventually be chanted in every town and village of the world. Such is not the case at this time, but, in due course, it will come to pass.

This excerpt is from the purport by His Divine Grace Çréla Prabhupäda to Chapter Eight, Text 17 of Bhagavad-gétä:

“These four yugas, rotating a thousand times, comprise one day of Brahmä, and the same number comprise one night. Brahmä lives one hundred of such “years” and then dies. These “hundred years” by earth calculations total to 311 trillion and 40 billion earth years. By these calculations the life of Brahmä seems fantastic and interminable, but from the viewpoint of eternity, it is as brief as a lightning flash.”
