Svavasa Das, LA iskcon temple invites karmi singers to milk the Indian Cash Cow Congregation!

SELLOUTS! Deviant LA iskcon temple invites karmi singers to
entertain the Indian Cash Cow Congregation!

Going to be performing a Carnatic-Hindustani Jugalbandi at ISKCON temple, Los Angeles on the occasion of Shri Krishna Janmashtami along with Sushma Kashyap Thursday, August 25th at 8pm PST! Any friends in the area please do stop by ☺
Venue: ISKCON temple
Address: 3764 Watseka Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90034

CC Antya 1.101
Śrīla Sanātana Gosvāmī has forbidden us to hear the holy name of Kṛṣṇa chanted by non-Vaiṣṇavas, such as professional actors and singers, for it will have no effect. It is like milk touched by the lips of a serpent, as stated in the Padma Purāṇa:
avaiṣṇava-mukhodgīrṇaṁ pūtaṁ hari-kathāmṛtam
śravaṇaṁ naiva kartavyaṁ sarpocchiṣṭaṁ yathā payaḥ
As far as possible, therefore, the devotees in the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement gather to chant the holy name of Kṛṣṇa in public so that both the chanters and the listeners may benefit.

The invited “bhajan singer” also sings Ganesh bhajans!

singer drinks coffee as well, EXCELLENT!

The TP of LA ISKCON, Svavasa Das, who Hridayananda Goswami had rubbished off as “completely perverted Prabhupada’s teachings”. Of course, we all know what is HDG but maybe he was right in Svavasa Das’ case?     maybe…


They also invite this long haired sahajiya to the temple! Why can’t i see a regular kunthi mala on his neck?

Sivaram Swami’s Modern Educated Liberated Female Secretary Threatens & Abuses a Poor Simple Devotee for Speaking the Truth in ISKCON

Hanuman Das’ only crime was that he copy pasted Sivaram Swami’s disciple’s (Krisztina Danka PhD) Krishna Lila Dasi’ self written Facebook comment where she declared herself to be SRS’s personal secretary. Few hours later, Krishna Lila Dasi called Hanuman Das, a

  • Scumbag (two times)
  • Moron
  • twisted head
  • dirt bag
  • and (his act as) disgusting

krishna lila dasi attack.png

all this just for telling everyone that SRS is a monk who had kept a young beautiful secretary with him for 15 year and traveled with her (she claims it waswith an entourage, not alone, who knows…).

I will ask the same question i asked in the Sacinandana-Bhanu Nandini Scandal:
SRS has thousands of disciples. Not every single is totally useless. For all the women in East Europe he had to choose a very young tall beautiful slim blue eyed blond girl to be his personal secretary for 15 years as he traveled with her (not alone allegedly) all over the world. WHY? no fat, ugly bhaktins around?

How is that these two monks Sacinandana Swami and Sivaram Swami happen to just BY CHANCE make beautiful women their secretaries for 10 years and 15 years respectively?

Here are her comments


  • And if you do not delete the above post I will sue you. I am from a lawyer family with zero tolerance
    for scumbags.



    • Sue me about what? Sue me about my claim that sannyasis should not have short chats
      with women daily?
      And scumbag is who exactly? Everybody who doesn’t agree with your ridiculous ideas?
      Tell your guru that he should teach you how to lead polite discussion with devotees who are
      more than 25 years in this movement. I’ve never seen Sivarama Swami use words like “moron”, “twisted headed dirtbag” and “scumbag”. Now, you find yourself qualified, after using such words, to tell me that I am “offensive”.
      Please cook your lunch and send your husband to discuss with me.



      • I have been in this movement longer than you are, so I do not need you lecture me
        about Vaishnava etiquette. Vishnava etiquette requires me to reprimand those who
        commit grave Vaishnava aparadha just like you did! And yes, and
        Maharaja might not use those words but I do. You SCUMBAG!



  • That’s just disgusting!!! What an offensive, twisted-headed dirtbag you are! First of all, I was not the
    ONLY secretary he had, and we have NEVER EVER traveled alone, there was always a full team
    going with him everywhere. And the nature of our daily contact is mostly short chats about practical
    issues — I live an ocean apart with my husband and daughter, and sometimes I help the Hungarian
    ISKCON with information or advice. That’s all, so back off, morons!



    • First of wall, calling other people morons and twisted-headed dirtbag just because they
      don’t agree on your definition of sannyasi asrama shows serious lack of PR abilities.
      Sannyasis have no business doing daily chat about practical issues with their female
      secretaries. We don’t find Bhaktisiddhanta doing daily short chats with women. And we don’t find such behaviour in Srila Prabhupada.
      What happens when all other sannyasis and brahmacaries start having “short chats
      about practical issues”? So, it’s bad example.
      Feel free to continue with such practice, and I am feeling free to disagree with such



      • You are mistaken, man. Prabhupada had tons of daily conversations with his female
        disciples. There are about two dozens of them living in my neighborhood who can testify for that. You can “disagree” as much as you like but facts are facts. If you think short chats about 10,000 miles apart about Food For Life results,
        video projects, preaching events, articles that just appeared would compromise
        anyone’s ashram, than I am afraid something is terribly wrong in YOUR head.
        Stop demonize women and projecting your filthy mind on other people’s lives!



        • Something is wrong in my head? That’s because I read Bhagavad-gita:
          There are so many rules and regulations to be followed in the renounced
          order of life. Most important of all, a sannyāsī is strictly forbidden to have
          any intimate relationship with a woman. He is even forbidden to talk with a
          woman in a secluded place. Lord Caitanya was an ideal sannyāsī, and
          when He was at Purī His feminine devotees could not even come near to offer their respects. They were advised to bow down from a distant place. This is not a sign of hatred for women as a class, but it is a stricture
          imposed on the sannyāsī not to have close connections with women.
          One has to follow the rules and regulations of a particular status of life in
          order to purify his existence. For a sannyāsī, intimate relations with women
          and possession of wealth for sense gratification are strictly forbidden.
          The ideal sannyāsī was Lord Caitanya Himself, and we can learn from
          His life that He was very strict in regards to women. (BG 16.3p)
          So, Prabhupāda says we can learn from Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

ISKCON’s New Theology

ISKCON’s Cancer

Part 4— – Homosexuality and ISKCON

Citralekha Dasi Exposes Urmila Dasi(female iskcon “leader”)

This article is in response to the following Comment #344 that Urmila devi dasi made in a thread on Dandavats. Urmila dd said:

“This comment thread is to some extent about the subject of my class-the educating of children in Krishna consciousness. It is also to a greater extent about whether or not I, in a woman’s body, should be giving a class, or any instruction at all, in the presence of superiors according to ashrama, gender, and managerial position.”

In this comment, Urmila dd completely avoids the real reason this comment thread was started and deflects us from the real objection to her giving class. It is not at all about her being a woman. It is about the fact that she, as a female-bodied devotee, has not followed the svadharma of women, that is, stri-dharma.

The comment that kicked off an otherwise forgotten text that had only about 700 views at the time and only 3 comments, and which has now swollen to almost 9,000 views and 389 comments, by far the most commented article on Dandavats, was Comment #4 by Bhaktilata mataji, who wrote:

“By example means that there is a book Bhagavatam and the person Bhagavatam. A female devotee who preaches, which personalities should she exemplify Bhima or Kunti?

None of us would like to hear a class from a fallen sannyasi who didn’t follow his sannyasa dharma.

None of us would like to hear a class from a fallen grhasta who didn’t follow his grahasta dharma.

Nor would we like to hear a class from a fallen brahmacari who didn’t follow his brahmacari dharma.

One should be a living example of what one is preaching. So when it comes to women “preachers” which ones are actually following their stri dharma?

Most senior western women in ISKCON don’t even know what Stri-dharma is what to speak of practice it. Why should we listen to them?”

Urmila dd would like us to forget about this and turn it into an anti-woman thing, and thus she becomes the victim of misogyny who is valiantly fighting for the suppressed women who are struggling under ISKCON’s repressive “patriarchal” system. But this is not at all the case. The actual fact that Urmila dd is trying to deflect us from is that it is because Urmila dd doesn’t follow stri-dharma, therefore she is not qualified to speak, not because she is a woman. Only women who follow their stri-dharma are qualified to speak, and not others.

In Comment #189-190, Bhaktilata mataji proves that Urmila dd is not following stri-dharma and is an unchaste woman and thus not qualified to speak anywhere, what to speak of in the Holy Dham, Sri Mayapura. Bhaktilata wrote:

“In #106 Visakha Priya Mataji wrote:

“Reading through the posts concerning Urmila devi’s class, I have observed that some persons appear to be convinced that Urmila is not following the instructions of her spiritual master and that therefore we should not hear from her.

Let us consider the following statements by Srila Prabhupada about what the Stri dharma of a woman is when her husband becomes a vanaprastha and then you tell me what you think.

There is no question of separation between husband and wife until the time when the husband takes sannyasa. At that time the wife cannot remain with the husband. Even in vanaprastha stage, or retired life, the wife remains with the husband, but without any sex relations.” Srila Prabhupada Letter to Himavati, 24/1/69

“The chaste wife’s duty is to keep her husband pleased in householder life in all respects, and when the husband retires from family life, she is to go to the forest and adopt the life of vanaprastha, or vana-vasi. At that time the wife is to follow her husband and take care of him, just as she took care of him in householder life.” Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.23.20

Just as in the vanaprastha stage the wife follows the husband, …” Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.28.34

“The vanaprastha stage is exactly like this. Although the wife remains with the husband, she undergoes severe austerities and penances so that although both husband and wife live together, there is no question of sex. In this way both husband and wife can live together perpetually.” Srimad-Bhagavatam, 4.28.44

Now compare this with the following quote from Urmila dd’s diksha guru nomination letter dated September 2003.

“3. Should not be involved in any abnormal personal situation. An example of such a situation would be a disrupted or anomalous family life which could distract a guru from his guru duties or otherwise prove a disturbance to him or his followers.”

“My situation has been stable for some time. I’m living separated from husband as vanaprastha since 1996; we have a legal separation agreement. I’m under the authority of our sons and son-in-law. I will soon have own cabin for residence.”

Urmila dd having separated from her husband while he is still alive is exactly opposite of Srila Prabhupada’s instructions for his female disciples when their husband’s become vanaprasthas. Just as I would not listen to a “Sannyasi” living with his wife; there is no use in listening to a so-called lady vanaprastha who has separated herself from her husband. Now Visakha Priya Mataji I hope you can now understand what I mean when I say that our ladies do not even know what Stri dharma is let alone follow it, and that is why we should not listen to those who have disobeyed the clear instructions of Srila Prabhupada in the matter of following Stri-dharma.”

Basically speaking Urmila dd is a hypocrite who portrays herself as a chaste woman and strict follower of Srila Prabhupada when in fact she is the opposite.

“By a girl, by a young woman, or even by an aged one, nothing must be done independently, even in her own house. In childhood a female must be subject to her father, in youth to her husband, when her lord is dead to her sons; a woman must never be independent. She must not seek to separate herself from her father, husband, or sons; by leaving them she would make both (her own and her husband’s) families contemptible. ” Manu Samhita 5.147-9

Not only does Urmila’s behavior make both of her families contemptible but it also brings shame on her guru Srila Prabhupada.

Ironically in the West, Urmila dd externally appears too conservative to many, but in India she is perceived as unchaste and a closet feminist by her behavior. Her ambition to be recognized is forcing her to come out of the closet more and more.

While the GBC has in the past seldom managed to avoid mistakes somehow they miraculously barred Urmila dd from becoming a diksha guru in 2010 and saved us at least this once from a person who is not qualified to sit on the Vyasasana what to speak of giving diksha.

However this has not at all hampered her attempts to gain a following and become a diksha guru at all costs, despite the fact that she is in direct violation of Srila Prabhupada’s instructions regarding the behavior of a woman whose husband is a vanaprastha. We do not at all expect this text to stop her in her attempts of fulfill her ambitions, she is much too obstinate for that, but we can at least inform the public of what is really going on and thus allow them to formulate more educated opinions.
