Where is the GBC When We Need Them?
Posted May 20, 2008
Gender discrimination and hurtful comments have no place in a spiritual movement. Those who view spirit souls as their bodies and encourage mundane perceptions have no place initiating devotees. Bhakti Vikasa Swami has a history of displaying a lack of spiritual understanding and is hurting our movement. While we wish devotees well, his brand of leadership cannot continue.
The GBC is the ultimate ecclesiastical and managerial authority. Why are they not taking action to either help rehabilitate or remove this so-called leader, whose influence results in such events as the recent abusive comments regarding female devotees? Is the GBC waiting for this abomination to hit the national media? Let's see some action!
