REFORM BY PUNISHMENT
As a man haunted by a ghost talks so much nonsense, so also when a man is overpowered by the illusory energy--maya, also talks all sorts of nonsense. The last attack of maya upon the conditioned souls is impersonalism. There are 4 stages of attack of maya; viz.: 1 stage is that a man wants to be a protagonist of religion, 2 is that man neglects religiosity and tries to improve his economic development, 3) is to be protagonist of sense enjoyment & when a man is frustrated in all the above mentioned stages he comes to 4,which is impersonalism, and thinks himself one with the Supreme. This last attack is very serious and fatal. Kirtanananda has very recently developed the 4th stage malady on account of his negligence & disobedience to his spiritual master.
(SPL to Pradyumna 17th October 1967)
Kirtanananda developed impersonalism on account of his negligence & disobedience of Srila Prabhupada's order that he go to London. Just imagine the very heavy negligence, disobedience and completely severe offenses he, Tamal and company have now made. Can there be any doubts that these people are MAHA Mayavadi demons ? For over 20 years devotees have been hearing this poison and the results of this are described by Srila Prabhupada as follows.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu gave protection to devotees and killed many demons in the course of His preaching work. He specifically mentioned that the Mayavadi philosophers are the greatest demons. Therefore He warned all others not to hear the Mayavada philosophy. Mayavadi-bhasya sunile haya sarva-nasa. Simply by hearing the Mayavada interpretation of the sastras, one is doomed (Cc. Madhya 6.169).
( C.C. Adi Lila 17.53)
Now, the next verse is that if you hear about Krsna from Krsna or Krsna's representative, not from bogus men... According to this Vedic philosophy, if somebody speaks about Bhagavad-gita, but he's not a Vaisnava... Sanatana Gosvami has forbidden that "Don't hear from him." Because he will create rascal. And Caitanya Mahaprabhu has said, mayavadi-bhasya sunile haya sarva-nasa. If you hear about Krsna from an impersonalist, so-called Mayavadi, then your future is doomed, finished. And Sanatana Gosvami has said,
sravanam naiva kartavyam
sarpocchistam yatha payah
Avaisnava. Those who are not following the principles of Vaisnava behavior, professional. There are some professional reciters. That is forbidden. Don't hear from them.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture 1.2.18 Vrndavana, October 29, 1972)
If a avaisnava, if a Mayavadi, he speaks about Bhagavatam or Bhagavad-gita, one should not hear it. He should avoid it because it will create some misimpression. Caitanya Mahaprabhu has forbidden strongly, mayavadi-bhasya sunile haya sarva-nasa: "If one hears from a Mayavadi about Bhagavad-gita, Srimad-Bhagavatam, then that person is doomed." So this is, therefore, tad-vijnanartham sa gurum evabhigacchet. This injunction means one should approach a Vaisnava to accept him as guru and then take lessons from him and make his life successful.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture 3.26.27 Bombay, January 4, 1975)
By Srila Prabhupada's mercy he has shown to us these Mayavadi demons. He has very expertly seperated his devotees from these demons and protected us from hearing their poison. Are we to try adjust the management (Initiation formalities) by a mundane court law and go associate and hear these Mayavadi demons again ? Even if the leaders are put in jail for perjury (Srila Prabhupada says trust no future however pleasant.) what about their followers ? The whole society has become Apa-sampradaya where is their an instance of an apa-sampradaya been reformed ? Srila Prabhupada instructs that we should not associate with such societies. In fact we shouldn't even see their faces.
One should therefore not even see the face of a person who blasphemes Lord Visnu and His devotees. Never try to associate with such persons.
(C.C. Madya Lila 15.261)
In the parampara system, the instructions taken from the bona fide spiritual master must also be based on revealed Vedic scriptures. One who is in the line of disciplic succession cannot manufacture his own way of behavior. There are many so-called followers of the Vaisnava cult in the line of Caitanya Mahaprabhu who do not scrupulously follow the conclusions of the sastras, and therefore they are considered to be apa-sampradaya, which means "outside of the sampradaya." Some of these groups are known as aula, baula, kartabhaja, neda, daravesa, sani sahajiya, sakhibheki, smarta, jata-gosani, ativadi, cudadhari and gauranga-nagari. In order to follow strictly the disciplic succession of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, one should not associate with these apasampradaya communities.
(C.C. Adi, 7.48)
This idea of reform through mundane court judgement is completely on the superficial platform, it is actually not a reform but another trick of the illusory energy. Srila Prabhupada never gave us that example to follow in his own life, rather he did the opposite and he instructed us to do the same.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu never disobeyed the orders of His spiritual master and stopped propagating the sankirtana movement. Sri Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami, at the time of his passing away, ordered all his disciples to work conjointly to preach the mission of Caitanya Mahaprabhu all over the world. Later, however, some self-interested, foolish disciples disobeyed his orders. Each one of them wanted to become head of the mission, and they fought in the courts, neglecting the order of the spiritual master, and the entire mission was defeated. We are not proud of this; however, the truth must be explained. We believed in the words of our spiritual master and started in a humble way--in a helpless way--but due to the spiritual force of the order of the supreme authority, this movement has become successful.
(C.C Adi Lila 7.95-96)
You are right that politics should be avoided. In my personal life I did not participate in the political diplomacy of my Godbrothers. I was simply thinking how to fulfil the order of my Guru Maharaja.
(S.P Letter to Gangamayi devi dasi, 18/10/74)
Despite the spiritual master's order to form a governing body and execute the missionary activities of the Gaudiya Matha, the two unauthorized factions began litigation that is still going on after forty years with no decision. Therefore, we do not belong to any faction. But because the two parties, busy dividing the material assets of the Gaudiya Matha institution, stopped the preaching work, we took up the mission of Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura and Bhaktivinoda Thakura to preach the cult of Caitanya Mahaprabhu all over the world, under the protection of all the predecessor acaryas, and we find that our humble attempt has been successful.
(C.C Adi 12.8)
Why is there this politics? This is not good. If politics come, then the preaching will be stopped. That is the difficulty. As soon as politics come, everything is spoiled. In the Gaudiya Math the politics is still going on. My Guru Maharaja left in 1936, and now it is 1976, so after 40 years the litigation is still going on. Do not come to this.
(S.P Letter to Gurukrpa swami, 30/9/75)
Srila Prabhupada warns us about trying to get justice in court, especially in India.
And in India court business is very troublesome. Practically it is useless because you have to bribe. This is Kali Yuga; you have to pay money to get justice.
(S.P. Letter to: Giriraja 4 July, 1975)
In this Kali-yuga, if you have no money, then you will never get justice because you have to bribe up to the high court judge. That is going on. At least in India it is going on. You bribe, and you take favorable judgment. Is it not? Yes. And that is stated in the Srimad-Bhagavatam. Anardhena nyaya-rahitam. Everywhere you have to bribe. That means you require money. So unless you pay money, you will never get justice. This is Kali-yuga. Therefore a poor man cannot get justice. He cannot bribe. The other party will... If he has has got money, he will bribe. He will get justice, and he will suffer
(Bhagavad-gita Lecture16.8 Tokyo, January 28, 1975)
This is Kali-yuga. Nowadays the high-court judges, they are taking bribe, to give you a favorable judgment. You can purchase judgment. So if you have no money, then don't go to court. To push good money after bad money
(Srimad-Bhagavatam Lecture 1.15.46 Los Angeles, December 24, 1973)
A point about money is that it would be far better to use it to print Srila Prabhupada's original books, like Bhagavad-gita as it is. That is a real reform, a revolution in the impious lives of this world's misdirected civilization.
On the other hand, that literature which is full of descriptions of the transcendental glories of the name, fame, forms, pastimes, etc., of the unlimited Supreme Lord is a different creation, full of transcendental words directed toward bringing about a revolution in the impious lives of this world's misdirected civilization. Such transcendental literatures, even though imperfectly composed, are heard, sung and accepted by purified men who are thoroughly honest.
As soon as you have got some money, print books, print books. Don't keep it. If you print books, some day somebody will read. But if we keep money, it creates disturbance. I am therefore always insisting, "Print books, Print books." Or construct temple, this building, that building. There is no need of keeping money.
( S.P.Garden Discussion on Bhagavad-gita Sixteenth Chapter June 26, 1976, New Vrindaban)For reforming the Mayavadi asuras that will come in the form of punishment by Goddess Kali.
"Anyone who follows the principles of Mayavada philosophy is certainly doomed." Such a fool needs to be reformed by punishment.
(C.C. Adi Lila 12.35)
When the dacoits brought Bharata Maharaja before the goddess Kali and raised a chopper to kill him, the goddess Kali became immediately alarmed due to the mistreatment of a devotee. She came out of the deity and, taking the chopper in her own hands, killed all the dacoits there. Thus a pure devotee of the Supreme Personality of Godhead can remain silent despite the mistreatment of nondevotees. Rogues and dacoits who misbehave toward a devotee are punished at last by the arrangement of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
(S.B. 5.9. intro)
When an envious person commits an offense before a great personality, he is always punished in the way mentioned above. (S.B. 5.9.19)
Please see S.B. 5.9.18.
In the following quote we see that atomic bombs are Goddess Kali's creations, so it won't be long now before Goddess Kali appears with her dreadful trident and begins to devastate these Mayavadi asuras who have made such heavy offenses to His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and his followers.
The Mahamaya who is known as Durga, Kali, Candi, Bhadrakali, Mohalaksmi, etc is the embodiment of His external potency as described in the Candi and it is the thankless task of the Mahamaya to punish the asuras with Her all powerful weapons in the ten direction of the material world. She does not only create and maintain this material world but also she annihilates it according to the direction of the almighty God. In the Bhagavad-gita this Mahamaya has also been described as Daivi Maya and She is so powerful that the asuras cannot by-pass Her at any rate. The asura can get remission from the stroke of the trisula of Mohamaya when he the asura, surrenders surrenders himself to Sri Krishna the Personality of Godhead. As Superintendent of the material world the Mohamaya has been described Durga as the protectress of the great durga or fortress of the grand universes. She gives all the necessities for our existence but as soon as we become an asura like the Mohisasuras, Ravanas, Hiranyakasipus, and in later ages like the Mussolinis and such others for the exploitation of the material energy, the Durga Devi at once appears Herself with Her dreadful trident and begins to devastate the whole existence by such tribulations as war, famine, pestilence, or sometimes annihilation of a total existence. The methods of annihilation as are invented by the human brain such as the atomic bombs etc are also Her creations but the deluded asuras, who are caused to act by the modes of prakrti the material nature, do think themselves as the originator or inventor of such weapons.
(S.P.Letter to: Juggannath Babu, Calcutta 14 March, 1949)
After this REFORM Srila Prabhupada will be heard with rapt attention by all, this will clear away any remnants of contamination due to Mayavada association.
