Satsvarupa dasa Goswami: “Prabhupada had picked out eleven devotees to initiate on his behalf

 Satsvarupa admits guru appointment hoax

Satsvarupa dasa Goswami: “Prabhupada had picked out eleven devotees to initiate on his behalf when he was too ill to initiate.

In 1978 in a GBC meeting, they (the GBC) decided that those people should become the first initiating gurus in ISKCON. 
So I became initiating guru and suddenly had to accept disciples in big numbers — all these devotees who hadn’t been initiated and were waiting to be initiated. And it was a very heady time. I wrote a poem about it which I published in Journal and Poems, feeling myself to be a small person, but aguru. I called it “A Castor-tree Guru,” based on an example Prabhupada gave that he said that when there are no trees, a castor tree (which is a small tree) will be considered a big tree. So my poem is called “A Castor Tree Guru:”

[PADA: Notice that now Satsvarupa is admitting there was no guru appointment by Srila Prabhupada, rather the GBC appointed the 11 gurus. This admission is a little late in coming, but at least some pieces of the truth is finally coming out, i.e. "the May 28th guru appointment" by Srila Prabhupada was, is, always will be a total hoax. There is ALSO no "order from Srila Prabhupada" for the GBC to appoint acharyas either, this is another hoax, maybe SDG will admit to that hoax later on, lets hope so for his sake. Anyway, this is a start, albeit a day late and a dollar short. ys pd]


  1. HARE KRSNA--Yes ,I would say that his telling the truth is maybe a few years late in coming.Actually,he has been maintaining an evil lie for 35 years.However,now that the truth is out,I hope things can change for the next 9,500 years...

  2. rascal, dispicable, the decimation of Srila Prabhupada's once cohesive group of devotee's .
    just see TKG, in the recent sun rathayatra pictures with his left elbow on Srila Prabhupada's vyasasana.
    No devotee would dare do such a thing out of respect for Srila Prabhupada .

  3. He says it because right now all temples are restructered with paid personnel from 3rd countries who care a fig. These new ISKCON inmates want payment and everything else is of no interest. So SDG stating this has no meaning. Nothing will change.

  4. Once the doc increases his medication, he'll forget he said this. Then, no change, business as usual.
