Our Beautiful ISKCON

All glories to "Srila Prabhupada's ISKCON". I would first like to start by saying that my heart goes out to all the devotees that were tortured by people who were put in a position of trust and power. These innocent devotee children were supposed to be loved and nourished with the seed of devotion. I have read many of the postings about Dhanudhara and I feel SICK to my stomach!! Sick to my stomach that the GBC, once trusted by Srila Prabhupada, has not taken this person out of his position of initiating spiritual master and the title "swami" . He does not deserve the title even on these chakra articles.

It is up to us (the servants of the servants) to take this title away from him now! If the GBC cannot find this an easy task then we can at least individually start the process by not posting this title of "swami" anymore and putting Srila Prabhupada's movement in the proper hands, not in the hands of the pedophiles, child torturers and women beaters!!!

This is our movement, a beautiful one, with no room or tolerance for these types of people, zero!! There should be flyers distributed with warnings of such individuals, telling aspiring disciples that the person whom the GBC is allowing to act as initiating guru has destroyed the lives of innocent children. I feel very, very sad to have read such horror and to see that the position of GBC is so complicated as to even have to think about removing this high position from one of many whom has disgraced Prabhupada's original movement of love for Krishna and each other. I have seen so many people leave Prabhupada's movement because of not having faith in their GBC and this is again very, very sad and unfortunately devotees are seeing a very slow actions for the big decisions that could protect women and children and fast actions on some of the trivial items.

I pray that this individual can continue to chant Hare Krishna and step down to a humble position, so these disciples can be brought to a bonafide spiritual master, and the victims can at least have the respect they deserve. For the sake of everyone and the dignity of Srila Prabhupada's movement, I pray that the GBC will do the right thing.
