“Where is the Outrage”

Where is the Outrage?!
Yesterday I spoke with a dear godsister whom I’ve known for over four decades. She is a sincere, dedicated devotee who performs valuable service to the Deities and assists the ISKCON management in putting on festivals. In many ways, her personal life is exemplary: she has good sadhana, admirable morals and works hard. I happened to ask her if she was aware that it had proven conclusively that Srila Prabhupada had been poisoned with cadmium. She replied that yes, she was aware, but didn’t feel that the information had any relevance to her: it happened 40 years ago and there is nothing that can be done about it now.
The attitude that the murder of Srila Prabhupada is an unfortunate historical fact that has no bearing on the present situation is not only inaccurate, but it is also a symptom of a crime that is even greater than the poisoning of Srila Prabhuupada’s physical body; the greater crime is the poisoning of Srila Prabhupada’s institution, ISKCON. What better way to destroy the most important institution in the world than to gradually add just enough poison that it is almost undetectable, just as they did to Srila Prabhupada’s physical body?
Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world.” –BG16-9 Read the rest of this entry →
