"Why do I have to compromise with Turley
or Nityananda to get things done?"
Dear Prabhu's, please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
After E Jerk Rogueford's attack on Srila Prabhupada in the New York Times, October1998 where he blames His Divine Grace's teachings for all the child abuse in ISKCON, Puranjana dasa completely ignored repeated requests by Sanatana dasa to make some counter propaganda against these blasphemous attacks in his newsletter PADA.
After i heard about this i wrote Puranjana dasa a letter on 5th June 2000, in which i inquired from him why he did nothing about these attacks as he was engaged in the service of defending Srila Prabhupada's good name from being defamed (Prabhupada Anti Defamation Association). I also point out to him the dangers of Mr. Roguefords offensive mentality and the possibility of further articles once the Turley case began. He replied as follows:
Puranjana dasa: So Turley will do some major harassment, but he is not my paid up lawyer, so I cannot control every move he makes. It is stupid of you to think he will, and it is stupid of you to think I should now attack this man when he needs my testimony for the molest charges, and that is the only way these molest charges will be addressed legally.....Why do I have to compromise with Turley or Nityananda to get things done? Where are the "real warriors" that you infer should do the job? And if I did not do it properly, why didn't you?
The interesting point to note here is Puranjana dasa is openly admitting as early as the 5th of June 2000 that he is compromised with Turley . This would clearly indicate that he was aware of the plaintiffs complaint number 35 against Srila Prabhupada blaming him of being a duplicitous leader of the child molester cult, before it was publicly released on 12th June 7 days later.
The reason for his compromise he says is that they need his testimony for the molest charges. So in other words Puranjana sold out, his desire to kick out tamalt is so strong that he compromises with people who are blaspheming Srila Prabhupada.
Let's look at what Srila Prabhupada says about compromise.
Paramahamsa: Our position in preaching should be to encourage people in all
respects to associate with us.
Paramahamsa: That means sometimes we might have to compromise in certain
Prabhupada: Why compromise? You don't compromise. Then you associate with
him. If you make compromise, then you associate with him. Then gradually
you'll also go down. When we, when we see some person, we do not associate
with him, but we give him chance to associate with me. Why you should make
compromise? What is the reason? If you know something positively, why should
you make compromise? When people come to talk with me, see me, I don't make
any compromise. Do I make any compromise?
Prabhupada: Then why shall we make compromise? That gentleman, Mr. Herbert,
Gene Herbert, he said that "It has taken eighteen years to write these
books." I said, "Still, there are so many mistakes." Immediately I said. And
he could not say anything. Do you remember that?
Prabhupada: Immediately I said, "Yes, you have labored eighteen years.
Still, there are so many mistakes."
Nitai: Anyone else would have said, "Oh! Very nice."
Prabhupada: (laughs) Eh? I did not say.
(S.P. Morning Walk June 11, 1974, Paris)
So Puranjana should have known positively that Srila Prabhupada was not to blame in any way and was not covering anything up, still dictated my maya he made a compromise. This is his betrayal of Srila Prabhupada.
So what is the result of his making a compromise with Turley ? Srila Prabhupada says:
Why compromise? You don't compromise. Then you associate with him. If you make compromise, then you associate with him. Then gradually you'll also go down.
So Puranjana due to his compromise is associating with Turley and the rurukula children who are blaspheming Srila Prabhupada. Now he is also going down by their association, in other words he is also blaming Prabhupada. This is shown by his stanch defence of the blasphemers and his attacks on devotees like Sanatana prabhu who are trying to save him from his madness by presenting Srila Prabhupada's teachings on the correct Vaisnava behaviour towards blasphemy of the Lord and His devotees.
Because he has betrayed Srila Prabhupada and compromised with the blasphemers, then to protect this falsehood he has taken to so many other falsehoods.
Prabhupada: That is the way of falsehood. If once you speak something false, then to protect that falsehood you have to take to so many other falsehoods. This is the way of falsehood.
Paramahamsa: One lie leads to another.
(S.P. Morning Walk June 2, 1975, Honolulu)
In regards to Puranjana's compromise with Nityananda dasa, this again reveals his betrayal of Srila Prabhupada and Sulocana prabhu.
Puranjana dasa: Again, I also did not have any funding to get the poison forensics done, but as soon as I get Nityananda to do it, Sanat says that I am licking Satsvarupa's boots. He cannot do it, but if someone else does, he bites with his viper venom. Again, if we ever do a poison court case, we will need these forensics. So I get it done, somehow or other, and then you folks harass me because I had to use someone you do not like to get it done?
Note: So Puranjana gets the forensics done with the help of Nityananda's money, which he got from selling Satsvarupa's poison book lilamarta. So again we see Puranjana so driven by his desire to get tamalt out that he supports the most blasphemous writings of satsvarupa.
Below we have including chapter seven of Sulocana prabhu's Guru Business, but first let us get a glimpse of Sulocana's feeling of lilamrta:
Sulocana prabhu: No devotee in his right mind should read even one page of "Lilamrta," and those copies that have already been distributed should be recovered and burned.
Note: Here we again clearly see Puranjana's betrayal of Sulocana prabhu. Sulocana prabhu says burn lilamrta and purjana says sell lilamrta, poison everyone and give me the money from the profits so i can get tamalt in jail and then sit in his seat.
Another point in regards to Sulocana saying "those copies that have already been distributed should be recovered and burned." that burning was done at Gita Nagari by Sanatana prabhu.
Sulocana prabhu: No one will deny that Satsvarupa appears to be glorifying Srila Prabhupada in the Lilamrta. The problem is that, along with the glorification, he has also defamed Prabhupada. In one breath Srila Prabhupada is described being completely transcendental and beyond ordinary emotions, etc., but in the next sentence he is described as being dependent on a Mayavadi, or confused, insecure, etc. This makes the whole thing contradictory, bewildering, and offensive. It takes on the characteristics of milk touched by the lips of a serpent.
Sulocana prabhu: This last statement is the reason that Srila Prabhupada remained in household life: To set the example for us. But Satsvarupa does not make that clear in his "biography." He tries to interpret Srila Prabhupada's activities in a mundane way, making him seem "human" and thereby leading all the readers to hell. Satsvarupa is directly indicating above that Srila Prabhupada had not yet advanced to the point of being transcendental to family attachment. Try and see how offensive this is.
Sulocana prabhu: Such truths should not have to be spoken so openly, but it is necessary to make them clear in order to get his poisonous book, the "Lilamrta," recovered and burned.
Sulocana prabhu: The author, and those who worked with him on the "Lilamrta," have committed a horrendous offense to Srila Prabhupada. If they had tried this same "interpreting the mind" trick with some famous materialist who had died, they would be liable to get hit with a devastating slander lawsuit from the materialists' heirs. So just consider the gravity of what has happened-and is still happening-to Srila Prabhupada's reputation from the distribution of this slanderous book, the "Lilamrta."
Note: So here we see what Sulocana feels about Puranjana and Nityananda's distribution of lilamrta.
Sulocana prabhu: The Mahabhagavata's disciples are never expected to take such quotes and apparent situations and put together a book which tugs on the heartstrings of all of its readers, while at the same time tugging and ripping out the devotional creeper.
Sulocana prabhu: The "Lilamrta" is one of the reasons why this abominable mentality is even possible. Imitation thrones also assists the delusion. Equal worship is another strategy. "Lilamrta" is a contamination at nines so subtle, and so poisonous, that it works on the subconscious without a careless devotee even being aware. This book, and the books of Sridhar Maharaja will both produce results on the same level. Both have the same poisonous effect on one's soul.
Sulocana prabhu: As many of these books as possible should be recovered and destroyed. If not, the authors will be subject to sever punishment, both in this lifetime, and for many future lifetimes to come. And the innocent victims reading these books may have their material existence extended as well.
Note: So Puranjana and Nityananda's actions directly oppose Srila Prabhupada's mission to deliver the fallen souls. By distributing lilamrta they are extending the material existence of the poor souls who read this poisonous book.
