THE BLACK GORILLA
"And the Bon Maharaja is his follower. He's in name a disciple of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, but he's a servant of Vivekananda....His name is Bon Maharaja, and my Guru Maharaja used to say banamanusa. Banamanusa means the gorilla. (laughter) He is black also like gorilla.
He has given so much trouble to Guru Maharaja."
Bonjour ! I'm a Vicenava Kali Chela.
Please send your lastest mental fantasies to our web site VNN (The Vicenava News Network)
Our philosophy is yata mata tata patha. As many ways you manufacture that's alright "many monkeys many minds" But please don't make Vicenava aparadha, our gorilla's are sacred.
"a servant of Vivekananda"
Prabhupada: He has got some international name. So he says that "It's great fortune I have met you." He's now realizing his mistakes. He has still some respect for Vivekananda; that I did not disturb; he might misunderstand. Actually this Vivekananda rascal, what he has done? What is his contribution?
Tamala Krsna: You always add on "rascal" whenever you mention his name.
Prabhupada: No, no, what he has done? He has ruined the Vedic culture.
Hari-sauri: Completely misrepresented it.
Prabhupada: And the Bon Maharaja is his follower. He's in name a disciple of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, but he's a servant of Vivekananda.
Tamala Krsna: He's very similar to him.
Prabhupada: He's a great appreciator of Vivekananda. He has put in his curriculum Vivekananda philosophy, Gandhi philosophy. Rascal, what philosophy they have got?
Hari-sauri: He mentioned all the nonsense people. He put a circular out, he mentioned Rama Tirtha, Vivekananda, all these nonsense.
Prabhupada: Now I am convinced he's a rascal. He's nothing but a great rascal. My Guru Maharaja rejected him. Therefore he was called back, rascal, he used to say like that, banamanusa. Banamanusa.
Tamala Krsna: Bon?
Prabhupada: His name is Bon Maharaja, and my Guru Maharaja used to say banamanusa. Banamanusa means the gorilla. (laughter) He is black also like gorilla. He has given so much trouble to Guru Maharaja.
Tamala Krsna: So we should go now, Prabhupada.
Prabhupada: Called him back: "Call this rascal back." Every month he was being sent seven hundred rupees. That, in those days seven hundred rupees is a big amount. So at least ten time value has gone up. Seven hundred means seven thousand. He was spending for nothing, and he was publishing report, "Swamiji is playing on harmonium." And photo. This is first year, second, like that.
Tamala Krsna: And he told your Guru Maharaja that "Unless we serve meat, they will not come."
Prabhupada: Accha! I do not know that.
Tamala Krsna: I think you have once said that he had written to your Guru Maharaja that letter. I heard that, that "Unless we serve meat," in England, when he was in England.
Prabhupada: Yes, he was in England. Just like these rascals...
Tamala Krsna: Ramakrishna Mission.
Prabhupada: They serve muragi, this chicken prasadam.
Tamala Krsna: Chicken prasadam!

"So I have now issued orders that all my disciples should avoid all of my godbrothers"
am in due receipt of your letter dated September 3, 1975 with
the enclosed statement about Bon Maharaja. So I have now
issued orders that all my disciples should avoid all of my
godbrothers. They should not have any dealings with them nor
even correspondence, nor should they give them any
of my books or should they purchase any of their books, neither
should you visit any of their temples. Please avoid them.
(S.P.L. to Visvakarma, 9th November, 1975)
Note: No correspondence means no sending of mental fantasies to the VNN (The Vicenava News Network) Remember the third offense in chanting the holy name is disobying the orders of the Spiritual Master.
Srila Prabhupada forbids association (in any form) with the Vivekananda Black Gorilla sampradaya.
