Kailasa Candra dasa is right to call the acronym Stargate “ISKCON”, and I would even go that far to call their chelas who received false initiation, to be infected with alien astral larvae. In that science fiction series Stargate the alien worms representing astral larvae are called goa’ulth. Although they can make the infected person very dangerous, it completely dis-empowers that host, making him a psychic slave. The spiritual life of such a devotee is then finished, as he cannot live without the symbiotic larvae, which at that time completely takes over his thinking faculty, having nested in the causal body of that person.

Stargate “ISKCON” requires loyalty to the G.B.C. and constitutes complete betrayal of the mystic principles driving any genuine spiritual movement. In stamping His Divine Grace as the inaugurator of some new sampradaya betrays the whole lineage. It betrays Srila Prabhupada himself, the Brahma-Madhava-Gaudiya Sampradaya, Bhaktisiddhanta Thakura, Bhaktivinoda Thakura, and most importantly, Sri Krishna Caitanya Mahaprabhu Himself. Cutting with the lineage in this way is equivalent to abolition of the whole branch. Not only that, but it allows the G.B.C. and Ravindra Svarupa to shape the future of their movement with self-fulfilling prophecies and dangerous social engineering, which Kailasa Candra prabhu gracefully exposes.

Hermeneutics has often proven to be a vigorous tool for implementing insidious dogmas and unscrupulous agendas, as we can see in the history of the host culture. Even today, christian, muslim and talmudic pundits use hermeneutics to buttress their weird and often insane interpretations of dogma, which, for thousands of years, tries to either prevent or create apocalyptic scenarios. It thus makes a bad name for God. In a similar way, there are various mis-interpreters of the Vaishnava teachings, and Stargate “ISKCON`s” warlocks, space cadets and larvae-eaten shells are the most dangerous of that lot, especially in this age. The pseudo-metaphysical egregor of Stargate “ISKCON” lusts for secular power, and it is hellbent on attaining it. As such they need a philosophy which borrows heavily from John Stuart Mill’s utilitarianism and from pragmatism. In fact, many elements of that Englishman’s philosophy have been implemented; crypto-feminism is but one of those.

Positivism, which today dominates the so-called scientific community, educational and social life itself, lurked its way into “ISKCON,” and nobody there ever confronts this imprint for what it is. Recruiting from colleges and high schools, all infected by that soul-killing philosophy of empirical positivism, “ISKCON” hopes they can usurp as much power as possible within the positivist educational fabric, just like some secret fraternities in England and America. Instead of seeing with the transcendental torchlight that Srila Prabhupada provided, including the bona fide Vaishnava philosophy with all its nuances, the self-proclaimed elite of “ISKCON” hope to replace the Vaishnava philosophy with a Western cesspool of soul-killing philosophy, including cultural marxism, positivism, utilitarianism, etc., all of which the Vaishnavas, headed by Bhaktivinoda Thakura, exposed and confronted successfully in the past. As such, it is only natural that the triumphalists want to declare themselves a new sampradaya.

As such, the hierarchical structure of “ISKCON” must be praised and upheld by RSA, regarded as necessary and integral to his fifth sampradaya. As Kailasa Candra expertly exposes, SPFAI facilitates nothing more than sycophantic lip service to the G.B.C. In our post-modern phase, we see a tendency, especially in the English-speaking countries, to in-corp-orate structures to fixate such service in the astral matrix of the host culture; on a certain level, such corporations are in fact corpses, constituted of the astral phase of jada. The same tendency can be observed in Stargate “ISKCON”, which tries to occlude the truth via the covering shakti of Mahamaya, and the result will be one big corpse, whose parts and parcels are its serfs. Kailasa Candra prabhu empowers all devotees of the Brahma-Madhava-Gaudiya branch to see SPFAI for what it is and cut its rotten limbs with the axe of spiritual discrimination and thus gives all devotees the power to stop Stargate “ISKCON” before it mutates into its ultimate form: Franken-“ISKCON”. Hare Krishna. Maha Sankarshana

One cannot legislate and institutionalize their way into genuine spiritual realization and understanding. Rejuvenation of the jivas’ eternal relationship with the Supreme Absolute Truth, the Personality of Godhead Bhagavan Sri Krishna, that which is completely unlimited, is neither bound by nor is it the exclusive access of governing body commissions, “foundational documents,” (concocted dogma) voted in “gurus,” and other ill-conceived ecclesiastical arrangements. This SPFAI document is not the answer either. Its author and those who give it approval remind me almost of Catholic zealots with a fervent desire to create some sort of neo Catholic Papacy now hiding in plain view for all but the most dull-witted space cadets and fanatics to see. Indeed, to return to square one, this dogma needs to be removed from the brain. Enlightenment in Krishna consciousness is not sectarian; purity and liberation has never and will never be the dominion of one sect above another sect, although certain sects might have more advanced and more expanded presentations of the philosophy, but the ultimate reality is not a sect. As the author of this article succinctly puts it Srila Prabhupada is the Founder-Acarya of ISKCON, which is a branch of the Sampradaya—not a Sampradaya in and of itself; a point which should really be obvious to all.

An excellent exposure of the mess-up done by Ravindra Svarupa!
I think it is worthy to be noted that (from my experience) there is no possiblity of a (sane) discussion with them. If an article like this would be presented to the cult, or in this case Ravindra Svarupa himself, it would most probably be done off with a comment like ‘offensive, fault-finding’, if any comment at all.
