There was some Michael Duncan allegedly a SP disciple, who wrote some stupid non vedic things in support of Gabbard and then deleted his comments! Yea old age do that to you sometimes, as we saw with Mahananda Das (ACBSP) and his strange comments.
These we our replies to Duncan.
1.”You stick to the rules for your level”
How do u know what is the level of who? You are being silly. Stick to the scriptures.2.When we quote Bhaktisamritasindu, for that you have nothing to say, but you give us these strange things.3. you say, “I have read all of His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedantas books” Did you also read the part about abortions in the books you read or what?
4. It is a very strange that having had so many blessing still you can’t understand that women should not lead kirtan for men. This is not varnashrama. Varnashrama calls for separation of the genders.
5. “and don’t assume you are Trancendentally aware of who is who in the Zoo” I am aware of things enough to know that a woman is not to be encouraged to lead kirtan for men. Simple. Did you pick this culture up from the holy cities you visited?
6. “your around long enough you might understand” To tell us of how many years you spent is iskcon is just silly. By this measure Kirtananada’s actions and theories should be beyond reprimanding. So dont give me such silly measuring criterions. Stick to facts and SP’s teachings.
And dont bring in the ‘YamunaDasi defence’. That’s a typical yavana thing to pull out in such discussions.
SP ordered we instill varnashrama, this fact alone over rules all previous statements that apparently encourage some leniency in the culture.
Senior fools as they reveal themselves by their lack of understanding of even simple cultural things. So use those tacts (“I’m so senior”) with those high school drop out idiots whose only skill in life is to flog a book* of two to not get kicked out of the temples and senseless zombies followers that colonize iskcon’s temples and frequent the sunday feasts, use it on them not with us.Bhaktya sruta grihitaya, if you don’t have a sound understanding of what is right and wrong in bhakti your decades are useless.Here BVPS highlights this typical mentality of some iskcon people who don’t rely on the scriptures nor vedic cultural precedents to make a point but try and show their “social prowess”.
*of course, book distribution is most glorious
I should have assumed your reality with all the Gauranga Nitais and Sri Sri Radha Krsna names you used in the conversation. Gaudiya Math defector! Disgusting!
