Answers to poisoning objections by Nityananda das

May 30, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

TRANSCRIPT FOR VIDEO TWO: COMMON OBJECTIONS TO THE “POISON THEORY”
 
Those who cannot understand or accept the evidence and scientific proof that Srila Prabhupada was actually maliciously poisoned with lethal amounts of cadmium, a heavy metal worse than arsenic, at levels about 250 times above the average normal person, often raise various objections to what is called the “poison theory.” Of course, it is no longer a theory, but an established fact. Those who are honest and who look at the evidence will agree with this, while those who have compromised honesty will come up with defective objections as to why it just can’t be true. Admittedly, it is difficult to appreciate the mountain of poisoning evidence if one is, either:
(1). Influenced or dependent in some way upon ISKCON or its leaders and gurus, all who strenuously deny the poisoning, have covered it up, and prohibit even discussion on the subject. Institutional pressures condition the way its members think, and independent thinking is almost impossible in these conditions.
(2). Someone may be unable to bear the emotional pain, shock, and ramifications that Srila Prabhupada, our beloved eternal spiritual master, was actually poisoned right under our noses while we suspected nothing.
And there may be other reasons also. But the evidence speaks for itself. It is not a theory concocted by troubled ex-devotees. So let’s do a quick review of the evidence:
(1). Five top-notch audio forensic laboratories have scientifically certified low volume speech by caretakers on tape recordings made in late ‘77 to be about poisoning Srila Prabhupada.
(2). On November 9 and 10, ‘77, Srila Prabhupada and his caretakers openly discussed at length the subject of Srila Prabhupada being poisoned homicidally. The talks were about deadly poisons, rakshasa demons, case histories, mercury, murder, lawyers, restricting who cooked for Srila Prabhupada, and the following statements:
Srila Prabhupada said three times. “Someone has poisoned me.”
Bhakticharu: Oh, okay, he thinks that someone, someone gave him poison here.
Bhakticharu: He was referring to a case, a big murder case in Calcutta, the husband poisoned the wife.
Tamal: Prabhupada was thinking that someone had poisoned him?
Tamal: Srila Prabhupada, Shastriji says that there must be some truth to it if you say that. So who is it that has poisoned?
The problem is not so much that people disagree with the evidence. It is much more that they do not know what it is, and have not read the transcriptions of these 1977 conversations. If they did, there would be 98% less doubts and questions. These transcripts will be found in our upcoming report on Srila Prabhupada’s poisoning.
(3). ISKCON’s dishonest smoke and mirrors whitewash and cover up of the evidence, involving fraud, lies, deceit, trickery, and character assassination, shows that it is very afraid of the poisoning evidence. We should ask why that is…

why hair samples for cadmium poisoning are valid as evidence

May 28, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

CHAPTER 47:

HAIR ANALYSIS: VALIDITY & ACCURACY

INTRODUCTION

Not That I Am Poisoned, Chapter 1, has tried to discredit the science of hair analysis altogether with this statement:

Hair analysis for arsenic is a very unreliable indicator of serum arsenic levels when a specific individual is tested without a range of reference values from a group of the same time and place for comparison. This unreliability is even more marked when a small amount of hair sample is tested.”

At first look this statement sounds righteous, scientific, and profound, causing readers to think that hair testing for metals and poisons is very unreliable. However, these words are highly misleading and we will see that it makes no sense at all. Also NTIAP needs to diffentiate between serum (blood) and hair.

One should not be misled that individual hair analysis is unreliable. Group studies are required to establish norms and to understand variances due to local factors of pollution, occupation, and so on. But to compare an individual (such as Srila Prabhupada) to the average normal values found in various unexposed groups IS in fact a valid and reliable, scientifically accepted method of determining abnormal exposure or poisoning.

HAIR ANALYSIS IS A RELIABLE INDICATOR

(1). The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) published an authoritative study in 1979 in which more han 400 reports on hair testing were reviewed. The authors concluded that hair is a “meaningful and representative tissue for biological monitoring of most of the toxic metals.”

(2). The Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratories states: “There are numerous papers on the accuracy and efficacy of hair testing, particularly for toxic metals such as mercury. For more than 30 years, the significance of measuring element concentrations in scalp hair, blood, and urine has been studied.”

(3). A 1986 study by V Bencko, T Geist, et al called “Biological monitoring of environmental pollution and human exposure to some trace elements” states:

In addition to analyses of plant and animal specimens, the element content of human hair as an indicator of exposures to arsenic, mercury, cadmium, lead, antimony, manganese, nickel and cobalt has been repeatedly confirmed as reliable, provided the analyses were carried out and evaluated on group diagnostic basis and were done in groups of individuals occupationally not exposed to these metals.”

(4). From Nutri-Test Analytical in Edmonton, we read: “Blood, urine and hair are the most accessible tissues in which to measure elements in our body, and they are sometimes referred to as indicator tissues. Blood and urine concentrations usually reflect recent exposure and correlate best with acute effects. Hair is useful in assessing variations in exposure to metals over the long term. It is a useful tool for… diagnosis of heavy metal exposure…”

(5). A 1980 study by JS Lee and KL White called “A review of the health effects of cadmium” found that “hair values correlate well with exposure” to cadmium, whereas blood values did not.

(6). A 1979 study published by the EPA by DW Jenkins called “Toxic metals in mammalian hair and nails” found that “hair analysis, when properly performed, is a reliable measure of tissue levels of cadmium.”

(7). A 1973 study by RW Thatcher et al called “Effects of low levels of cadmium and lead, etc” found that “hair analysis is superior to blood in reflecting long term cadmium exposure.”

(8). WIKIPEDIA: Arsenic poisoning: (2015)Tests on hair and fingernails can measure exposure to high levels of arsenic over the past 6–12 months. These tests can determine if one has been exposed to above-average levels of arsenic… Hair is a potential bio-indicator for arsenic exposure due to its ability to store trace elements from blood. Incorporated elements maintain their position during growth of hair.”

CONCLUSION:

Hair analysis is not a very reliable indicator of total body burden, in other words, it does not directly correlate to the exact state of contamination in the body beyond the hair itself. But hair levels do give excellent relative indicators of abnormal contaminations that the body has been exposed to. In other words, the muscle, fat, organs, blood, and urine levels of any element may not be indicated by hair tests. But hair tests do show the presence of elements in the body that are compared to known normal levels in human society. Thus it is an excellent indicator of cadmium poisoning although it may not show much about the total body burden of cadmium or the state of health of internal organs.

how much toxic cadmium was in the hair samples of Srila Prabhupada?

May 28, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

75 41027SB.MAY Lectures

Suppose if I am here and somebody kills me, and if you do not protest, is it a very good business? People will be surprised that “So many disciples are there, and this man is being killed, and nobody do anything?”

Lectures : Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.3.28 — Los Angeles, October 3, 1972 : 721003SB.LA :

“There are many instances. Just like Prahlāda Mahārāja, you can see. Prahlāda Mahārāja is standing, and his father is being killed before him. This is sinful. Can you tolerate? Suppose if somebody comes to kill me, and you will see and laugh? You’ll do, will you do that? Why? That is sinful. So here Prahlāda Mahārāja is seeing. It is not protesting. Prahlāda Mahārāja is not protesting, “Why you are killing my father?” No. He’s seeing. So why Prahlāda Mahārāja is worshiped? Why he has become a mahājana, authority? You can say, “Oh, he’s a most sinful. He has seen in his presence, his father is being killed, and he did not protest.” You can say so. But because it is in connection with Kṛṣṇa, Prahlāda Mahārāja is the most exalted devotee. He’s not sinful.”

Prabhupada: People are so intelligent that when the representative of Krishna speaks, they (indistinct) enemies, and sometimes they crucify, kill. So, people are so kind that they are not killing. Otherwise, why Christ, (?) was killed? What fault? What is his fault? Just see. Was there any fault in his words? He advised, “Don’t kill,” and he was crucified. We have to deal with such rascals. I may be representative, but he is directly son of God. People are so rascal that they did not believe even the son of God, what to speak of His representative. What is that? Why Jesus Christ was killed? What was his fault? For ordinary people, it is hard to understand, but here the Bhagwatam explains envy again: “When a person is very great and famous, many unscrupulous persons become his enemies, for envy is the nature of materialists.

Preach Krsna Consciousness or remain Kanistha (materialistic devotee)

May 26, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

Preach Krsna Consciousness or  remain kanistha (materialistic devotee)
 
Madhya 12.135 purport-
The word jīva-hiṁsā (envy of other living entities) actually means stopping the preaching of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Preaching work is described as paropakāra, welfare activity for others. Those who are ignorant of the benefits of devotional service must be educated by preaching. If one stops preaching and simply sits down in a solitary place, he is engaging in material activity. If one desires to make a compromise with the Māyāvādīs, he is also engaged in material activity. A devotee should never make compromises with nondevotees. By acting as a professional guru, mystic yogī or miracle man, one may cheat and bluff the general public and gain fame as a wonderful mystic, but all this is considered to be dust, straw and grains of sand within the heart. In addition, one should follow the regulative principles and not desire illicit sex, gambling, intoxicants or meat.To give us practical instructions, Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu cleansed the temple twice. His second cleansing was more thorough.
 
Sept 16 1976
Pṛthivīte āche yata nagarādi. That is His (Lord Caitanya’s) mission. It is not that “Become a big Vaiṣṇava and sit down and imitate.” This is all rascaldom. So don’t follow this thing. So at least we cannot advise you in that way. We have learned from our Guru Mahārāja that preaching is very, very important thing, and when one is actually an experienced preacher, then he is able to chant Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra without any offense. Before that, this so-called chanting of Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra, you may practice without any offenses…And giving up all other business to make a show of a big Vaiṣṇava, that is not required. Thank you very much. (end)

“With these material senses, you cannot experience directly what is the form of the Lord, what is His quality, what does He do. So many things we want to know about the Supreme. But śāstra describes the qualities of the Lord, the form of the Lord, the activities of the Lord. You can learn. Śāstra-yonitvāt. Yoni means source, source. Śāstra-yonitvāt. Śāstra-cakṣus. Your eyes should be the śāstra. Not these blunt eyes. Everything we also experience by śāstra, by book.

So we have to see through the authorized books the description which is beyond our perception.”  Srila Prabhupada Bhagavad-gītā 2.18 — London, August 24, 1973

Truthfulness-the last leg of Dharma standing in kali yuga

May 22, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

ALL TRUTH PASSES THROUGH THREE STAGES: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”—Mahatma Gandhi
The truth is not for all men, but only for those who seek it.”     Ayn Rand
 
“Śrī Kṛṣṇa, the Personality of Godhead, who is the Paramātmā [Supersoul] in everyone’s heart and the benefactor of the truthful devotee, cleanses the desire for material enjoyment from the heart of the devotee who relishes His messages, which are in themselves virtuous when properly heard and chanted.” SB 1.2.17
 
SB 1.17.25 TRANSLATION-You (Dharma) are now standing on one leg only, which is your truthfulness, and you are somehow or other hobbling along. But quarrel personified [Kali],flourishing by deceit, is also trying to destroy that leg.

what happened to the Hare Krsna Movement and specifically Srila Prabhupada

May 19, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

Article by Nityananda das
Please find the following below:

LET US CONSIDER THE FACTS AND EVIDENCE

May 19, 2017.

Dear Godbrothers, Godsisters, and all devotees:

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada! Please accept my humble obeisances.

Below please find an excerpt of two key chapters from our upcoming free E-book which I ask all to read carefully (if they are interested in the new evidence that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned with sky-high levels of cadmium- the arsenic being secondary). This discovery was made in 2002-05, but the final report was only obtained in 2015, and thus the long delay in its disclosure.

            I have been following some of the reactions and responses to my recent video about how the scientific forensic breakthrough was made in the private investigation into Srila Prabhupada’s poisoning. It is clear that many who make public comments on the issue and my video HAVE NOT WATCHED THE END OF THE VIDEO to see the new evidence discovered by the Truth Committee about Srila Prabhupada’s disappearance pastimes, as described in these two chapters.

            Aside from the chapters here for your information, please allow me to address a few of the negative responses, which I posit are misunderstandings of the issue due to a lack of knowing the facts and evidence. Some of the misunderstandings are:

(1). THERE CAN BE NO FINAL RESOLUTION TO THE ISSUE WITHOUT AN EXHUMATION

            Yes, in many murder investigations, law enforcement will exhume the body to test tissues for poisons. But we have already tested Srila Prabhupada’s body via his sacred relic hair samples. Three authenticated (by the GBC themselves) Srila Prabhupada hair samples were tested, and all were found to have sky-high, deadly levels of cadmium, a heavy metal more poisonous than arsenic. There is thus no need to exhume Srila Prabhupada and we do not suggest such a drastic measure. The hair samples that devotees saved as relics never went into the Samadhi, so they can be tested as parts of Srila Prabhupada’s body to determine poisoning. Poisoning was verified by these new tests.

(2). THE WHISPERS CAN NEVER BE PROOF OF ANYTHING

            Actually, the science of audio forensics is used worldwide by courts of law and law enforcement regularly, and is able to determine the real content of recordings which may be difficult for the subjective human ear to understand. Although hundreds of devotees have clearly heard the poison word in three different whispers, we have also had SEVEN confirmations done by two professional sound studios and five recognized audio forensic laboratories. These are all documented in our upcoming report. The whispers have thus been scientifically certified as real court-worthy evidence. The whispers are not just what we think them to be- they are now what the scientific experts say they are, namely that Srila Prabhupada’s own caretakers were discussing malicious poisoning in his room just a few days before his departure. The confirmatory hair tests also validate the whispers. But even without the whispers, there is the absolute proof of poisoning in the new hair tests.

(3). WHY REHASH WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN SETTLED?

            The truth is that the matter was never honestly or satisfactorily settled by the ISKCON leadership, as detailed in Part Six of our upcoming report. The GBC engaged in a fraudulent cover up. Further, new evidence was discovered afterwards, which is presented in our upcoming report. Up to 2000, the GBC claimed that 20 times normal arsenic is not a problem. But then the discovery was made in GBC certified hair samples at a GBC-chosen laboratory that Srila Prabhupada had about 250 times the normal levels of cadmium in his body (as found in his hair). The story about this discovery is given in my video, which is 54 minutes long, and it seems some have not watched it completely, judging from their comments.

(4). SRILA PRABHUPADA WAS NOT POISONED, AS HE WAS SURROUNDED BY LOVING DISCIPLES

Its remarkable how complicated simple things get

May 18, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

July 13 1975 Philadelphia
Prof. Hopkins: Is that… It’s difficult for people outside the Kṛṣṇa consciousness group to see what the purpose of the movement is.
Prabhupāda: Eh?
Prof. Hopkins: It’s difficult for people outside the society of Kṛṣṇa consciousness to see what the purpose is. How would you understand the purpose? Simply to make God known? How would you state…
Prabhupāda: Our purpose is how to become happy. Everyone is struggling how to become happy. Somebody is thinking that “If I can get money then I’ll be happy.” Somebody is thinking that “If we become one with the Supreme, then I’ll be happy.” And somebody thinks that “If I can get material power, then I’ll be happy.” So those who are thinking in terms of money, they are karmīs. And those who are thinking in terms of becoming one, they are jñānīs. And those who are thinking in terms of getting material power, they are yogis. But the bhaktas, they don’t want any such perfection. They, bhaktis, “Let me worship the Supreme, that’s all.”Therefore he has already (indistinct) and they are all in want. Bhakta is satisfied simply by worshiping the Lord. Svāmin kṛtārtho ‘smi. And all others, karmīs, jñānīs, yogis, they want something so they cannot be happy. So if happiness is my aim, then I must become a bhakta, otherwise there is no happiness. You are always in want. Somebody is in want of money, somebody is in want to becoming one with the Supreme, and somebody wants to show some jugglery, mysticism. So they want something. And a devotee, he doesn’t want all these things. He wants to serve Kṛṣṇa, that’s all. No demand. And he serves Kṛṣṇa without any motive. Ahaituky apratihatā. That is bhakta.
Prof. Hopkins: So what you are doing is simply showing people how to be happy.
Prabhupāda: Yes.

Swamiji’s new American telephone

May 15, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

Sept 16 1972
So we are advancing in science, but at the same time, the so-called science, at the same time we are creating many disadvantages. Many disadvantages. From practical experience I say that when I came to your country… In India it is very difficult to get a telephone. You have to wait in the waiting list at least for two years or you have to bribe the authorities, say, five thousand, two thousand, like that. So when I got this facility of telephone… Because as soon as I deposited forty dollars… Forty dollars? The next day the telephone was in my room. So I was very glad. But after getting my telephone, I was disturbed always. (laughter) Some of my students asking, phoning me, (telephone sound) cling, cling, and “Swamiji, how you are feeling?” At twelve o’clock at night. (laughter). Yes. So I asked him, it is the time to inquire? I am very sorry. Not only one, I become so much disturbed. Then I asked them, get out this telephone. Yes. 
So try to understand. The so-called facility of the modern science means creating so many difficulties also.
 
Some conclusions–
There are so many things that the “experts” or others say we “need” or need to do. I remember when I was in high school, I went to an eye doctor who told me I needed to wear glasses, but he also told me that when I started wearing them my eyes would get weaker, and the glasses prescription would have to get stronger. So I thought , why should I do this and become dependent upon these eyeglasses? So I never wore them and even up to today, I don’t need to wear glasses. I do have them but only for driving at night, which I  hardly ever do. 
So I did not listen to his “advice” and am better off for it.

keeping beard and long hair means you are no longer my disciple-SP

May 15, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

Below we have a few statements by our spiritual master who is telling us all that to keep long hairs and beard means we are no longer his disciple. This physical presentation by someone comes from being lazy/casual in his spiritual life and not thinking these “small things” to be important any more. Well they are important, otherwise Srila Prabhupada would not have mentioned them and proves them also by the statements of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. To become casual means we will become a casualty. Gone.…..where did so and so ever…  go??

Jan 15 1974 HAWAII

So simply full of faults. Social life, political life, religious life—everything has been described there. And one thing I can see very practical, that in this age, lāvaṇyaṁ keśa-dhāraṇam. It is stated there that people will think that by keeping long hairs they will become very beautiful. That is stated there. Dāmpatye ratim eva hi. Husband and wife’s relation will depend on the strength of sex. These are described there. Svīkāra eva codvāhe. Marriage will be performed simply by agreement.

April 27 1972

 But as soon as I came to your country I saw the hippies-big, big hair. Keśa-dhāraṇam. Keśa means hair. It is predicted. Just see. This is śāstra: “In the Kali-yuga people will think very, think themselves of very beautiful feature by keeping long hairs.” That is stated. This is called śāstra. Five thousand years ago Bhāgavata was written, and there the symptoms of Kali-yuga are mentioned, and this is one of the symptoms, lāvaṇyaṁ keśa-dhāraṇam.

to chant without offense we must become preachers of Krsna

May 15, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

Hare Krsna-below we have an easy to understand, step by step analysis of how to perfect the chanting of the Hare Krsna maha mantra, which is necessary before we go back to Home back to Godhead.
DSCN9261.JPG
1.) June 7 1968 letter Gargamuni
For serving the Lord, we require to sacrifice our life, our wealth, our intelligence, and our words. One can serve the Lord with these four possessions; if not, with three, if not, then with two or even one, and that is sufficient to please the Supreme Personality of Godhead .
 
(the above is the beginning- from karma yoga  thru to bhakti yoga -dovetailing what we have for the service of the Supreme)
 
2.) Aug 24 1968 Montreal
Devotee: Well, karma-yoga…
Prabhupāda: Karma-yoga means just to dovetail your karma with yoga principles to arrive to the bhakti-yoga.
Devotee: To eventually arrive.
Prabhupāda: Yes. That is karma. That is not bhakti-yoga. But the aim is to arrive at the bhakti-yoga. Is it clear? That’s all. Just try to understand in this way. It is very good.
Devotee (2): Is it the same thing with haṭha-yoga?
Prabhupāda: No, haṭha-yoga is not bhakti-yoga.

Conversations Mayapur Feb 27 1977

Rādhā-vallabha: It’s verse twenty-eight, “Then he worshiped Śrī Kṛṣṇa.” So Jagannātha said it should be, “Then he worshiped…”

Prabhupāda: No, no. Jagannātha cannot correct. That bad habit he must give up.

Rādhā-vallabha: So we should just leave it exactly.

Prabhupāda: Oh, yes. You should not be more educated.

Rādhā-vallabha: He wasn’t changing any of the words. He was just…

Prabhupāda: Nothing of the… This of should be strictly forbidden.

Rādhā-vallabha: So no corrections. That makes it simple.

Prabhupāda: They can divide the synonyms. That’s all.

Rādhā-vallabha: Synonyms. So even…

Prabhupāda: That is his tendency, to correct. That’s very bad. He should not do that.

Prabhupada explains his history with his guru and guru tattva principles

May 12, 2017 in Articles by Damaghosa dasa

 
I was just reading the following few pages today in the Make Vrndavana booklet comprised entirely of conversations with Srila Prabhupada. The below four quotes are only within a few pages of this book. There is so much information in Prabhupadas statements. These are about guru tattva… Please read ….
 
1)   750203mw.haw                Conversations                371399/530501
Prabhupada: Sarva-sastre kaya, lava-matra sadhu-sange sarva-siddhi
haya. For me, personally, I had the opportunity to talk with my
spiritual master not more than ten times in my whole life, not more.
It may be less than that. But I tried to follow his instruction,
that’s all, although I was a grhastha.
———————-
So in the above statement by Srila Prabhupada we hear him saying he was with or heard his guru maharaj not more than ten times, maybe less than ten times..
So how was Srila Prabhupada getting instructions (DAILY) from his guru? Over a span of many years (he met Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Maharaj around 1920, and he passed away in 1935. So over the course of 15 years he was with him less than 10 times. So if you want to average it out, to less than once a year assuming ten meetings of the two personalities.  So in those few short times, he got some instructions, the main one we know was “if you get money print books”, and the other one was “preach to the english speaking people of the world, it will do good to you and them”. And I am sure there were a few more..
 
So my point here is this: How was Srila Prabhupada getting daily instruction, guidance, inspiration, etc from a guru he only met less than once a year?? Could you even run a mundane family/business/temple on one instruction a year? No of course not. It takes thousands…
And the instructions Prabhupada told us he got were mainly only the above two? Hardly much information for starting a world wide organization one would think? Where did all the extreme details about Krsna Consciousness come from that you will find in Srila Prabhupadas books  ?? Did he just pull these out of the air? Concoct them?
And what about getting guidance AFTER Bhaktisiddhanta maharaj left his body?This is when he wrote his books.
Everyone knows, Prabhupadas books and purports are his “devotional ecstasies” and they came from Lord Krsna thru the mercy of his guru maharaj Bhaktisiddhanta Maharj-WHOM HE ONLY MET LESS THAN ONCE A YEAR. 
So this whole idea of needing a “LIVING GURU” is rubbish.
What is “living” is not the physcial body
but the spiritual/vani/instructions which comes thru that body.
