|EVEN IT IS LITTLE OFFENSIVE|
Write vigorous articles to kick on the face of these rascals. All of you....So you all write very strongly, vehemently. Even it is little offensive, still these rascals should be taught good lesson. Yes. They're misleading.
Prabhupada: A missing link? Then I kick on your face. You're missing this kick. Now learn it. Nonsense. Here is the missing point. Just learn it. Write vigorous articles to kick on the face of these rascals. All of you. You have got so much advanced laboratories, advanced knowledge. You do not... even you are defying the authority of God. You have become so great. And you cannot prove that life is coming out of matter. That you are leaving aside for future. And I have to believe such a rascal? Do you think it is nice? You are talking all nonsense, and I have to believe you?.....(Break) All these scientists, they discover so many things. Why they did not discover something that he would not die? He would not become old? Where is that discovery? They will say: "Yes, in future." One man is kicking on your face, and you are saying: "Yes, in future, when I shall become strong, I shall kick him." But you are, my dear sir, being kicked now. What you are doing now? "Yes, I'm getting strength by your kicking." So you all write very strongly, vehemently. Even it is little offensive, still these rascals should be taught good lesson. Yes. They're misleading. Godlessness. As soon as you say "God created", immediately they become arrogant. That is our protest. If they accept God, then we give them all credit. That's all right. Otherwise zero. We don't deprecate their intention of advancement in knowledge. But we simply protest against their defying the authority of God. That is our point [S.P. Morning Walk, April 19, 1973, Los Angeles]
Note: Srila Prabhupada instructs us all to teach the scientist a good lesson by exposing their Godlessness which is misleading the innocent public. He says that even if it is a little offensive we should kick on the faces of these rascals by writing vigorous articles.
So this instruction is also very applicably to false guru's who pose as Srila Prabhupada's successors or more so to those who claim to reform his movement (IRM) or defend his honor (PADA) but actually deviate from his transcendental words. Actually such false reformers are much more insidious than those posing as Prabhupada's successors because their misleading is far more subtle and difficult to perceive!
TRANSLATION: Those who are engaged in the culture of nescient activities shall enter into the darkest region of ignorance. Worse still are those engaged in the so-called culture of knowledge.
PURPORT: In this mantra there is a comparative study of vidya and avidya. Avidya, or ignorance, is undoubtedly dangerous, but vidya, or knowledge, when mistaken or misguided, is even more dangerous .
Note: Avidya, or worship in the APA-ISKCON cult, is undoubtedly dangerous, but vidya, or knowledge that Prabhupada is Acarya when mistaken or misguided, as done by the false reformers, is even more dangerous.
So we have tried to follow Srila Prabhupada's instruction and even if some have perceived our words as harsh or offensive, they should carefully note the above quotes and rather than find fault - put pen to paper and also start kicking on the demons faces!!!
I am very glad that you are challenging all of these so-called swamis and gurus. My Guru Maharaja appreciated devotees who boldly presented our Vaishnava philosophy
I am very glad that you are challenging all of these so-called swamis and gurus. My Guru Maharaja appreciated devotees who boldly presented our Vaishnava philosophy. We must take advantage of every opportunity to defeat these rascals and drive them away, so please continue this strong attitude.
[S.P. Letter to: Bahulasva, Vrindaban, 30 November, 1971]
Note by Sulocana Prabhu: There are a class of devotees today who are against "ISKCON" but are not in favor of any kind of confrontation. They say, "Let them dig their own graves." That would be fine except for one thing: They are burying Srila Prabhupada and his mission along with themselves. For those devotees who are adamant not to resist the deviation, we have no ill feeling. If they are taking the path of no criticism, then they should not be hypocritical. They should not criticize us for wishing to follow Srila Prabhupada's directions above by confronting the representatives of the bogus institution. Otherwise, if these so-called peaceful devotees, who are outside the walls of ISKCON, criticize us, the saner section should realize that such moral cowards are lending indirect support to the current imposition going on within the walls.
