Bhakti Vikas Swami vs ISKCON Women=&0=& Regarding Bhakti Vikas Swami’s New Book Titled Women: Masters or Mothers? With commentary by PADA
A message from a mataji in ISKCON
24hr NAM KIRTAN mngr with ISKCON Vrndavana will be glorifying Vaisnavis as Srila Prabhupada’s significant “secret weapons”… during SB Class this morning in such a sincere manner.
Actually, just yesterday in the new Devotee Care office near the BGIS School, there was a fantastic, brilliant, incredible satsang of 25 empowered and notable senior Vaisnavis. I felt so honored to be sitting amongst many of Srila Prabhupada’s sincere, intelligent, committed and humble Vaisnavis of ISKCON who have given their lives to Srila Prabhupada to push on his Mission, many of us for 40 years or more.
REVOLT AT ISKCON OVER ‘SEX SCANDALS’
The Deccan Herald (India)
Monday, November 2, 1998 Nayee Dillee, Nov. 1, 1998
(UNI) – The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) is faced with a revolt by its devotees over a series of “sex scandals” involving its high-flying gurus. Leading the revolt is long-time devotee Vineet Narain who has set up the ISKCON Reform Group (IRG) which has branches in Australia, France, Germany, UK and Canada.
“This revolt is taking place not only in India but also around the world,” Mr Narain said today pointing to the recent rejection of Guru Loknath Swami by his former disciples on learning that he had molested a teen-aged girl in the US. Devotees from China rejected Tamal Krishna Goswami for the “lie he spoke about his spiritual position,” and for failing to provide the philosophical basis for his assumption of the title of guru.
