ISKCON has now become a Haven For Rascals…

Prabhupāda SaysNow, the Revatīnandana and this man and Śyāmasundara is making a clique. I can understand. What they are planning, that also I know. But I don’t wish to disclose it. So if these things come, then how this movement will go on? Politics, diplomacy, fraud, cheating, these are the general qualification of the western countries.

Jayatīrtha: Sitting?
Prabhupāda: Politics, diplomacy, fraud, cheating. These things are the general qualification of the western people. Do you admit or not?
Devotees: Yes.
Prabhupāda: If they are, these things come within our movement, then it will not be succesful. Tat-paratvena nirmalam. One has to become purified. Even sometimes we have to take… But that is for Kṛṣṇa’s. There must be now checking that all these rascals may not join and spoil the movement. You should not admit.
Bali Mardana: Yes.

Prabhupāda: They can come and go.
Bali Mardana: We should not make a haven for rascals.
Prabhupāda: Eh?
Bali Mardana: We should not create a haven for rascals.
Prabhupāda: Yes. So how it will be done unless you GBC members become very strong and with good brain?
[Morning Walk – LA July 13 1974]
Here Śrīla Prabhupāda is explaining how the devotees above were engaging in private business ventures but did not repay their debts to ISKCON. We need to understand that Śrīla Prabhupāda knows what is best for his ISKCON society as the Maha Bhāgavata devotee and any independent personal endeavor while practicing Kṛṣṇa consciousness will open us up to fall down.
ISKCON has now become a Haven For Rascals…


  1. This so correct, as I am in South Korea after China (book distribution)
    and seeing a devotee from Mayapur and his wife scamming the people here big time collecting huge amounts of laxmi (NO books distribution), they say they are collecting for "Mayapur Eco Village" ....if you check its web site you can see its a scam....
    SO amazing how the FISKCON GBC lets this go on!
    FISKCON is a Haven for rascals, many using Prabhupada's movement for their own personal sense gratification and having positions of leadership as this so called devotee has, he is the regional secretary for Korea.

    1. Nice reply anonymous, or should I say bhakta anonymous. I love Kali Yuga because it is the only time cowards can hide behind "anonymous" letters and spew their green envious venon.

      Mayapur Eco Village Society is a duly registered society actually doing the work we say we do. Presently we have 50 children scholarship with two in pre University.

      Mayapur Eco Village Society is a social organization and has no connection to ISKCON

      Unlike you I sign my name,
      Bhagavatamrta dass
      Mayapur Eco Village Society

      Mayapur Eco Village Society

  2. "ISKCON has now become a Haven For Rascals…"
    This is what happens when you disobey the order and instructions of the pure devotee, Srila Prabhupada. We need to expose these cheaters! For instance: I am doing traveling book distribution and Sankirtan (China/Korea)& while in S Korea, I noticed this husband/wife team and devotees working for them from Mayapur ISKCON . They are here doing a big scam taking South Koreans money by using this FAKE "Mayapur Eco Village" pitch as a way to take their money, yes, NO books distributed, just money for their personal sense gratification. They are stating they are feeding children in Mayapur and India. This couple, who by the way , one of them is the Regional Secretary for this region, take in 20 grand in USdollars a month easy. What would Prabhupada do? I say we should expose this scam NOW. Bring back real devotees who preach and distribute Prabhupada's books!

  3. You're saying "We should expose this scam NOW," but you are the one who knows their names and what's going on. So why haven't you given the names? And why not write this exposure (giving the names) to the various devotee websites which are widely read, and through which many devotee will be able to read such information so that they will come to know.
