the purpose of this book is fourfold:


1) It must be revealed to the world exactly who Srila Prabhupada is and how he has nothing whatsoever to do with the
corruption going on amongst ISKCON's leaders today. That is what the media likes to print and so that is what people generally
think is the real Hare Krsna movement. But Prabhupada's motive was pure. This is clearly evident when you see how he dealt with
people in their strengths and weaknesses on a practical, day-today basis. In other words, unlike the new "gurus," he practiced what
he preached. When this is seen, it will become next to impossible for persons who do not possess true spiritual realization and purity
to "fool the innocent public." Of course, many persons will continue to lump Srila Prabhupada in with these bogus gurus, but at
least the sincere seekers will be able to understand who is who.




2) There is a crying need to increase and even rekindle love for Prabhupada from his own disciples. To a large extent, they have left
Prabhupada's mission out of frustration and discouragement. These unscrupulous new "gurus" try to convince us that the majority of
Prabhupada's disciples have left the Society because they are all insincere, lusty, envious, etc. They openly claim that the only real
disciples of Srila Prabhupada are the ones who accept the new "gurus" as bona fide saints. This is nonsense. Prabhupada makes it
very clear in his letters why 99% of the devotees leave the Society: "Nasty, personally motivated" leaders. That's all. There is no other reason. With proper leadership anyone can be happy and find shelter in Srila Prabhupada's real movement. The real movement is meant for the whole world, not just a small handful of religious zealots. But first there has to be real leaders.

Unfortunately, because most of us are unable to "turn the other cheek" indefinitely, we could not, and cannot, constantly tolerate the behavior of
these men, which is becoming progressively more and more satanic. They were the foremost cause of disciples leaving ISKCON even
while Prabhupada was physically present, what to speak of now. So, in reality, the loyalists who have stayed in ISKCON all these years, supporting these "gurus" in their game of Imitate a Saint, are the real offenders to the pure devotee-not so much those who simply go away in utter disgust. All of Srila Prabhupada's disciples and followers should again feel encouraged to take up the real mission of Srila Prabhupada. We must not let these bogus gurus discourage us any longer.


3) An effort should be made to clean up ISKCON and remove the influence of personally motivated leaders. In other words, we should fully awaken the devotees to the politics and duplicity going on behind the facade. In this connection, some devotees have been criticizing us for taking on the function of ISKCON's poison-finder." Some of these critics no doubt assume that we are just as ill-motivated as the persons we are exposing. So they are saying that we should only concentrate on the "positive" aspect of its
function. They see that we should just be making available Srila Prabhupada's teachings by categories and helping other devotees find
services, spouses, communities, etc. Since this is such a common complaint, we would like to explain why we are eager to seek out and expose the bad as well as the good.


Many people are familiar with boils. Boils are due to impurities in the blood stream, and if ISKCON is seen as the body of Srila
Prabhupada, then right now Srila Prabhupada has a serious case of blood poisoning. It is rapidly coming to a head, which is the
danger point. This can be

Purity is the real force behind any genuine spiritual movement. Prabhupada predicted his "
leaders
" would notlive up to the standards he personally set.
The personal ambition of the "
big guns
" and how it has ruined the society, bringing dishonor to Prabhupada'sgood name.
The truth about the spiritual master. How becoming a bona fide guru is not by appointment, but by a lifetimeof sincere hard work and devotion.
 The first step to sanity: A logical and scriptural confrontation.
Srila Prabhupada was not a sentimentalist. Rather he taught that violence is often necessary to combat evil. Allelse failing, it may be necessary to use force to stop the "
guru
" imposition in ISKCON.
This famous quote by Sridhar Maharaja is one of hundreds of quotes contradictory to Srila Prabhupada'steachings, that helped ISKCON's appointed "
gurus
" to "
dig their own graves
." Unfortunately, ISKCON gotburied as well. Srila Prabhupada had specifically warned
no
to take Sridhar Maharaja's advice.
 How the "
authorized
" biography of ISKCON's founder minimizes the qualifications of a true saint, therebygiving full reign to charlatans eager to profit from their "
guru business
."
Chapter 8 - The Conspiracy
A running history showing the most important events of the takeover and the efforts made to thwart it,beginning in 1977 [Not complete].
?How ISKCON leaders, especially the "
gurus
" manipulate innocent women for their own selfish profit, adoration,and distinction. Thus ISKCON's 90% divorce rate. Also the real reason why Prabhupada gave sannyasa to hissexually inclined disciples.

A RUDE AWAKENING
As I started to read through Srila Prabhupada's personal letters to his disciples, I was primarily looking forquotes on marriage. At the time I was desperate to try and save my own marriage. Although that was mymain motive, I also knew it was my moral duty to try and save my wife and children from possible danger. Inthis way, I began my research with the blessings of the Lord of morality, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Since Iwas approaching His topmost representative, Srila Prabhupada, for guidance and inspiration, I knew theoutcome would be auspicious, whatever it was. I had no idea where my research would lead me. I only knewthat something was going to burst, and I didn't want it to be me. I was not especially concerned with thebroader "
guru-issue
" facing ISKCON's "
leaders
" today. Mainly, I wanted to save my own family, hoping thatwas part of the Lord's plan.Previously, I had been living a rather disheartened married life. My wife had been devoting her heart toanother man and so, naturally, this killed any chance of our having a meaningful relationship. Living in thissomewhat stagnant state, I had not been inclined to confront the fact that she was unfaithful. In blindacceptance of what I had been told was my spiritual master's mission and his authorized representatives, I hadremained simple and naive. This simplicity did not afford me either the desire or opportunity to even imaginewhat was lurking in the minds of others. They say the husband is always the last to know.Finally, in June of 1984, with plenty of encouragement from the "
guru
" she had been devoting herself to,namely one Kirtanananda "
Swami
," my wife decided to leave me to devote her life to him, even though Ihave two baby boys by her. At the time, I knew very little about Kirtanananda, so I was a little cautious aboutopenly criticizing him for his interference in my marriage. The fact that his "disciples" have more weapons thanbrains also discouraged me from openly challenging him. My wife also knew very little about him, except forthe hype that's drilled into all the gullible guru-pies at his camp, such as, "He's the oldest and first sannyasadisciple of Prabhupada" or, "He built Prabhupada's Palace, so he must be a pure saint." That kind of stuff. Ineffect, neither of us really knew anything about him at all, so she agreed that I would go to LA and do someresearch, and if I found out anything suspicious, I would let her know. She said she would then join me if thatwas the case.I agreed to rejoin her at Kirtanananda's camp if his slate was clean. Foolishly, I thought that she was sincerein this arrangement.Little did I know that before the dust of my tires had settled on the road, she had already been allotted tosatisfy the carnal desires of one of Kirtanananda's loyalists, Raghunatha, a man so desperate for sex that hehad been grabbing devotee women's breasts and thighs, even though they were married. Kirtananandarequires many women for these loyal and hard working men like Raghunatha, who want more from life thansimply work. Since Kirtanananda could see that I was not one of his blind loyalists ("Sulocana, you are just notmy man") he naturally had no use for me. But his unmarried and agitated workers would be very pleased withsomeone like my wife. After all, how long can a young man be satisfied simply with the peephole into theladies' toilet in the temple building there? So, when my wife expressed to Kirtanananda a desire to stay atNew Vrndavana, despite my intention to leave, he didn't hesitate to tell her, "
That's all right, let him go. I'lltake care of you
." It never even dawned on him to counsel us, which is of course the duty of the leader of areal religious community. Having been a lifelong homosexual, and repulsed by women, "Well boys, get out theincense, it's fish night" (Kirtanananda Swami thinks women smell like fish), he could hardly counsel couples inmoral obligations, even if he wanted to. But, despite his personal feelings, he needs women for his
 
heterosexual men who eventually leave him if he doesn't supply them a sex partner. So, being a British citizenand somewhat cultured, at least by New Vrndavana standards, my wife was a prize catch for him.Unfortunately, I had found out all these things too late.So I was forced to make a dreadful choice: "
Sink or swim
." There was no question of just ignoring the wholething and starting life over again as my parents were urging me. I couldn't really blame them. It was apparentenough that I was either heading for the gas chamber for just executing Kirtanananda, or a nervousbreakdown if I lost my sons. Many of my co-disciples had sought the illusory escape from similar ordealsthrough drugs, sex, television, violence, and ultimately spiritual suicide. I could have gone any or all thoseroutes. I had the money and I was free from any immediate obligations or debts. Fortunately however theLord had a different plan for me. By this time I had heard and read enough about Kirtanananda to know that Ihad to make my best effort to save my sons from his clutches, even though it had become apparent my wifewas completely under his control. So, suffering from the stress of having had my sons forcibly taken from meby Kirtanananda's strong-arms, and having lost nearly forty pounds as a result, I decided to take a stand,practically alone, against one of the richest and most corrupt men in ISKCON. This was after nearly five yearsof lethargic spiritual dormancy.Knowing that Kirtanananda had attacked Srila Prabhupada in the late sixties in his first attempt to take overthe movement, I figured that if I could get all the letters dealing with that incident, then I would havesomething tangible to show my wife about the real character of her new "
protector
." Having previouslyindexed for ISKCON's book publishing house (BBT), I resumed that service with one objective in mind: to getaccess to Prabhupada's letters. Due to my distress, however, I was unable to conceal my real intentions. Thusthey refused to let me have them. This struggle went on for nearly two months, when, by the Lord's grace, Imet a devotee who had previously bribed the archives department-at no meager expense-for the completeset. He sympathized with my story, having also been stabbed in the back by an "ISKCON" despot, and he lentme his own set. For the first time in months, I felt hopeful of getting my sons back, although I knew it wouldstill be a long time before I would see my sons safe. Shortly after this breakthrough I made a large sale of  jewelry, which enabled me to purchase my computer. It appeared the Lord was definitely with me.The letters contained all the secrets I had been hoping for-and more. I knew then that it would be myassigned duty to make the truth in these letters known to all. It was the beginning of a re-awakening in myheart for a service which He had so mercifully been arranging for me all along-a service far heavier than Iwould have been able to bear, or even consider, had I remained in the deep, dark, discouraging well of unfaithful female companionship (not to be confused with a devoted wife). Although the ordeal was painful, itwas that purifying experience for which I had been longing. I deeply welcomed it. So, on October 11th, 1984,1 mailed a letter to all ISKCON centers openly declaring war against Kirtanananda and the entire Society if myfamily was not returned to me intact. The Society ignored me. Hardly did I get one response. Since silenceautomatically means acceptance, I knew that my accusations were correct, and that it was just a matter of time before the truth would triumph. From that point onwards I was doomed to live in constant hiding fromKirtanananda's worshipers, who would have killed me in an instant if they knew where I was parked in mymotor home, typing away.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS BOOK
Although many ingredients are the same, this is no ordinary tale of a woman betraying her husband foranother man. It certainly has its intrigue and duplicity, but this story goes far beyond an ordinary maritalmelodrama. The profound dimensions underlying Kirtanananda's aggression against me are obvious. Otherwise,he never would have taken such a risk for this woman, who is not even a money-picker. That would have beenthe standard "ISKCON" motive, as you will see in the chapter on women's' sexploitation. This conflict, instead,goes deep to the root of ISKCON's problems. Destiny has certainly arranged that, through this incident, theneeded polarization between these personality cults and the real mission of Srila Prabhupada will take place.The enemy will have been positively identified. My personal love for my sons, who are still being held captivein Kirtanananda's grip, is thus no longer the sole or even main motivating force behind this book. You will onlyhear of my personal grief in this picture, since there have been hundreds, if not thousands, of victims likemyself. I can now fully sympathize with them all. The specific injustice done to myself will certainly be rectifiedin due course as I ceaselessly work to expose the fundamental corruption which underlies what only appears tobe the ISKCON movement, but which, in reality, represents the betrayal of our spiritual master, SrilaPrabhupada.As I began my search through the letters, I discovered something higher than my personal marital problems
