Indian Devotee Praises Hanuman Prabhu’s Thankless Service

Pradip Marek I initially I also thought Hanuman Das was on the conquest of fault finding when I first came across his posts a year or 2 ago, but there is nothing petty about what he is doing. You will see this if you visit his website. Thus his actions come under the category of FACT finding. So I reject your post saying he is fault finding

He is reporting on bad deviations that are happening in the ISKCON movement and providing his conclusions, and sharing this information with his peers so hes is subjected to people able to have a conversation and reach their own conclusion.

A lot of effort is put in to to each topic he shares with us. All evidence show, this is not petty fault finding. This is proper reporting.

This is a great service to the ISKCON movement. Our community needs to keep our authorities in line and ask the hard questions, and get responses from our leaders and seniors who have all promised to support prabhupads movement. I wish our movement had a official body to beable to do this. But no one likes corruption watch dogs.

If your not seeing something right, say something. This is what we are doing.
Check and Balances are required to make sure our peers and senior people are following the desires of our founder and not deviating against the values of our movement. The GBC does not do this, and this is why we have hanuman.

Fault finding – is finding faults of a petty nature
Fact finding – is finding information, backing it up with evidence, comparing it to what Prabhupada said, and allowing the public and peers intelligently discuss this further to see if the info is indeed fact or fiction to see if its in line with the values of our movement.

I support Hanuman in all is fact finding endeavors. All the people who support Hanuman believe his work is not petty in nature

Indradyumna Swami Allures Men Using Beautiful Girls

Kālā Kṛṣṇadāsa was influenced and allured by nomads or gypsies, who enticed him with women. Māyā is so strong that Kālā Kṛṣṇadāsa left Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s company to join gypsy women. Even though a person may associate with Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, he can be allured by māyā and leave the Lord’s company due to his slight independence. Only one who is overwhelmed by māyā can be so unfortunate as to leave Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s company, yet unless one is very conscientious, the influence of māyā can drag one away, even though he be the personal assistant of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. And what to speak of others? The Bhaṭṭathāris used to increase their numbers by using women to allure outsiders. This is factual evidence showing that it is possible at any time to fall down from the Lord’s association. One need only misuse his little independence. Once fallen and separated from the Supreme Personality of Godhead’s association, one becomes a candidate for suffering in the material world. Although rejected by Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, Kālā Kṛṣṇadāsa was given another chance, as the following verses relate. (https://prabhupadabooks.com/cc/madhya/10/65)

Prabhupada Silences Envious Brother, Bhakti Pramode Puri Maharaja

Letter to Bhakti Pramode Puri Maharaj

Dear Bhakti Pramode Puri Maharaj:

Please accept my obeisances. I am in due receipt of your letter dated August 27, 1975 and have noted the contents. Yes, it is Bhagavan’s special mercy upon me that I am getting such immense wealth. You will be pleased to know that my books are selling to the extent of one million of dollars per month. But this money is coming from the mlecchas and yavanas. That is the difficulty. This money is not coming from the brahmanas. Therefore I am afraid to contribute to you as you request. How shall I give to you and pollute you?

They are all mlecchas, and you are a rigid brahmana, pukkha. So how will you accept it? If you like, you can hand over the management charge of your temple, and my devotees will manage.

I hope this meets you in good health.

Yours faithfully,

A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
