Impotent pacifist Chamberlain politics at Iskcon Vrindavan
Rumour: Panchagauda Das is a puppet in the hands of his feminist wife Christine Nicoloff
For all his liberalism, his flaws, Hridayananda Goswmi is correct on this point that we have incompetent leadership in iskcon.
Read what Panchagauda Das wrote here
“concerns of senior matajis”
Some of the persons against wanting to ban the book Women:Masters or Mothers are women.
These persons are senior.
Being a woman and being a senior person does not mean what ever you say has absolute validity and you can go against the scriptures and ban them.
Prabhupada: Politics, diplomacy, fraud, cheating. These things are the general qualification of the western people. Do you admit or not?
Prabhupada: If they are, these things come within our movement, then it will not be succesful. Tat-paratvena nirmalam [Cc. Madhya 19.170]. One has to become purified. Even sometimes we have to take… But that is for Krsna’s. There must be now checking that all these rascals may not join and spoil the movement. You should not admit.
Bali Mardana: Yes.
Prabhupada: They can come and go.
Bali Mardana: We should not make a haven for rascals.
Bali Mardana: We should not create a haven for rascals.
Prabhupada: Yes. So how it will be done unless you GBC members become very strong and with good brain?
Isvara Dasa I also had a small discussion this morning withPancagauda Das Nicoloff and he made his position clear which is quite reasonable. Iskcon a big house with lots of hotheads. It’s not easy tending to demands of one and all, especially when it comes to dealing with the senior members. The management definitely takes considerations of the concerns of senior matajis and we should not discount that.
He is neither for or against the book
He says here that he neither for nor against this book.
The Vrindavan Executive Board was responsible for this ban.
Panchagauda Das was and is the head of Vrindavan Iskon Temple when this happened and did not take any sides, as he states to Basu Ghosha Das. As a leader in iskcon it is PGDas’s responsibility to analyze a situation and figure out which option is the most pleasing to Krishna. Maunam sammati lakshanam is the injunction of the scriptures that suits his case. He was silent when he should have allowed the book to be sold. Thus, since he blasphemed the scriptures when he banned the book to “maintain the peace”. The devotees cannot let vox populi decide what is the Truth. एकोपी वेदवित् धर्मं यम व्यवस्येद् द्विजोत्तमः । स विज्ञेयः परो धर्मो नअज्ञ्यानामं उदितो अयुतैः ।। १२ -११३
Even that which one brahmana versed in the veda declared to be law, must be considered to have supreme legal force, but not that which is proclaimed by myriads of ignorant men.
The devotees have to abide by the scriptures Bg 16.24

Pancagauda Das worships “sadhus of vrindavana” and yet neglects the words of the best sadhu – Prabhupada in the book WMM.
