CHARU SWAMIS COVER-UP
From the "Conversation Tapes," and from what the Bhaktivedanta Investigation Force (BIF) has gathered, as well as from the book itself (Not That I am Poisoned); there appears to be an orchestrated denial by the GBC of stark evidence linking poison to Srila Prabhupada's passing. Birds of a feather, they use their license as a right to supersede mandatory laws; giving sanctuary to murderers, paedophiles, misogynists, homosexuals, fornicators, machiavellians, masochists, narcissists, machismos and megalomaniacs.
Under the GBC's lacunae-riddled-legislature, felons germinate like maggots in a cadaver. Laws that reek of cultism. Laws that tell the world the GBC respects no judicature or jurisprudence beyond itself. Not even the intervention of the Civil Court. Here, read it for yourself:
Iskcon Law No: 12.8 ".......and however much he may be dissatisfied with the exercise of that jurisdiction, he shall refrain from invoking the supervisory power of the Civil Court, but shall seek redress of any grievance(s) through the ISKCON judicial process. Otherwise, he may be removed from office and / or his membership in ISKCON terminated.(88)" For those who are not acquainted with Iskcon's infrastructure and its complex food chain, this attitude should give some insight into why the suspects have not yet been exposed to public investigation.
Another fait accompli; is the total exclusion
of God-Sisters from the "Testimonies," (or any other part
of the book for that matter). Sisters were always part
of the movement, yet, not once in the book (NTIP) have they been approached by
the authors to "testify" or express a point of view.
Does this glaring truth unwittingly betray the misogyny of the GBC? Does it portray Iskcon as a power-hungry club for "Men Only?" Or is it simply a fact that women, historically, have never been involved in a spiritual coup d' etat? Whatever reasons are there for the absence of early feminine involvement in Iskcon politics; the chapter is wrongly titled. Instead of "Testimonies" the caption should read: "Testosterone." Because, in fact, that is all it is; an alpha over a kill being eulogized by subjected emulators.
Below we analyze the first "Testimony." It is an offering by Bhakticaru, who is also known as "Phakicaru" (Phaki or Phakibaj, is Indian slang for "fake"). He is a member of Iskcon's GBC and a "guru." He is also closely associated with the suspects. In fact his position and well-being within Iskcon was awarded him by the suspects themselves, and depends on his continued subservience to them. Does this mean that he himself is not a suspect? No!!! we did not say that at all. It is a matter for legal adjudication. Involvement in a criminal act of this nature entails levels of perpetration and complicity. BIF simply spotlights what is obvious. And what is obvious, is the continuous stream of lies emitted by these so called holy-men and their collaborators within Iskcon.
Bhakticaru: From NTIP Page-121,para-2 (quote) " Since I was one of Srila Prabhupada's servants at that time, taking care of his food and medicines, according to that book (Someone has Poisoned Me), I am naturally a suspect......" (unquote) Why Bhakticaru continuously tries to impress on us his important position as Srila Prabhupada's minder, is not difficult to understand. This is his way of justifying his "guruship" and seniority. But what we find curious is his assumption that he, as a carer, is 'naturally a suspect.' We know from the available evidence, that a number of people had access to Srila Prabhupada's food and medicines. In fact, there were about eighteen doctors and a number of carers who shot through in rapid succession. QUESTION: So why does Bhakticaru martyr himself with the mantle of "suspect?" ANSWER: To baffle investigators by setting up a false target. Also, it is what complicity does to camouflage the "overact" or indulgence of a superior. Like a tail-wagging-doggie saying thanks for the bone. That's right, subordination sucks.
The second part of Bhakticaru's (above) statement, is indeed a revelation of the man's mendacity. Here it is: (quote) "When I first heard about this allegation (poisoning) I considered it to be so absurd that I did not think it deserved any response. I could not even imagine that anyone with a rational mind would give any credence to such an allegation." (unquote). NOTE: Bhakticaru first heard the "allegation" from Srila Prabhupada himself. Bhakticaru is a "phakibaj," (a fake) ipso facto. Bhakticaru may have forgotten, but we certainly have not. Nor have the "Conversation Tapes." Nor have the devotees who were present at the time. Nor have those who swear Bhakticaru said he believed Srila Prabhupada was being poisoned even before his departure from this world.
BIF will show below how Bhakticaru et al, did not find the "allegations" "absurd" at the time when Srila Prabhupada complained about being poisoned. We have sworn statements by devotees (who have nothing to lose or gain) claiming Bhakticaru has admitted on numerous occasions (throughout the last twenty-four years) to believing that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned. So the questions arise; Why does Bhakticaru tell one story publicly and another in private? Is he afraid? Has he decided to accept complicity in his gamble for gain? Anyway, here is a walk down memory lane, and Bhakticaru's own statements on tape from Nov: ' 77.
Bhavananda: Prabhupada was complaining of mental distress this
Bhakticaru: Srila Prabhupada.
Bhakticaru (Bengali): Ota ki byapaar hoyechelo? mental distress?
Trans: What is that problem? mental distress?
Kaviraja: (Hindi) Boliye, boliye.
Trans: Say, say.
SP: (Hindi): Wohi bat jo koi hamko poison kya.
Trans: That talk (that) someone has poisoned me.
Bhakticaru: (Hindi) O aacha, uno soch na ki koi......
Trans: O' okay, he thinks that someone....
Kaviraja (speaking over Bhakticaru): Dekhiye bat yehi hai ki kisi rakshas ne diya ho.
Trans: Look, this is the understanding; some demon has given (poison).
Bhakticaru: "Someone gave him poison here."
Kaviraja: ...Caru swami.. (Bhakticaru says "yes")... kisi rakshas ne diya ho. Yeh to ho sakta hai. Impossible nehi hain. Woh Sankaracarya the; unhe kisi ne poison diya. Cheh mahina tak woh bari taklif paye. Kanch to hota hai na ? botal ke kanch, yeh pees ke khane mein khila diya. To usko kya nitaja hua; bara mahina baad mai, leprosy ho gaya sab sharir ki undar. To karam to apna bhugte hai. Kintu jo medicine ham dai raka hai; jadi koi uska effect hoga poison to rahe nahin sakta, guarenteed bolta hai. Ki woh be effected hoga to rahin nahi sakta. Ki abhi to ham pakar nahin saktai usko unko diya hua hai. Abhi bhi pakarta hai jab kidney kharab ho gaya, kisi karanse ya bimari se ho, chai graha se ho, chai poison se.
Trans: ...Caru swami (Bhakticaru says, "yes")..some demon has given (poison). This can happen. It's not impossible. There's that Sankaracarya (person), someone gave him poison. For six months he suffered. There is glass you know? Bottle glass? It was ground and fed in food. What befell him; after twelve months; leprosy spread inside his body. Everyone suffers their karma. But the medicine I have given, if any (poisonous) effect occurs; it cannot stay. I give a guarantee, that even if there are effects they will not stay. Because right now, I cannot detect (poison) has been given to him. It is detected when the kidneys go bad, or by some symptom of disease, by (effects) of the eclypse, or by poison (?) .
Tamala Krsna: Prabhupada was thinking that someone had poisoned him?
Tamala Krsna: That was the mental distress?
Kaviraja: Yeh bolte hai to isme kuch na kuch satya he. Isme koi sandeha nahin.
Trans: This is what (Srila Prabhupada) says, then there must be some truth in it. In this there is no doubt.
Tamala Krsna: What did Kaviraja just say?
Bhakticaru: He said that when Srila Prabhupada was saying that (he is poisoned) there must be something truth behind it.
(Everyone begins speaking together)
Kaviraja: Koi rakshas hai...daina wallah..Pan me ek cheez de doon. Kya batun...doodh me de doon. Khana ek pan me dwai de doon, subhe me jindagi be bhool sakhoge.
Trans: It's some rakshasa...the poisoner...will put something in paan. What to say...(or) something in milk. To eat, (he) will put a medicine in pan, by the morning (your) whole life can be forgotten.
Tamala Krsna: Srila Prabhupada, Sastriji says that there must be some truth to it if you say that. So who is it that has poisoned?
Srila Prabhupada does not answer.
So why didn't Bhakticaru tell the kaviraja he was thinking irrationally? with absurdity? Why didn't he tell Srila Prabhupada that? Why did Bhakticaru himself say, "Someone gave him poison here." Not only did Bhakticaru, Tamala, Jayapataka, Bhavananda and the kaviraja fail to address this greviance, they also cohorted to exclude any official investigation or pathological analysis to support or negate it. Tamala Krsna: "WE did not go searching for a murderer because WE concluded there was no murder." (NTIP. Page-146).
[Comment: unbelievable!... here just everyone agrees that Srila Prabhupada is being poisoned -including Tamal- and Tamal says WE concluded there was no murder.]
BIF WANTS TO KNOW FROM TAMALA....WHO ARE THE "WE" IN THIS STATEMENT ?? The time for identification is here. Let's take a head-count.
Here are some ear and eyewitness accounts, exposing
Bhakticaru's "irrational" or "selective memory syndrome:"
(Witness- Name witheld): " Bhakticaru was also shocked as
the rest of us were. What happened was, we were all within and around Srila Prabhupada's
bed, at least there were five godbrothers present.....Srila Prabhupada said something
and we did not understand mostly because Srila Prabhupada spoke in a whisper then.
Bhakticaru understanding it was Bengali Srila Prabhupada was speaking, climbed
closer within Srila Prabhupada's bed to hear what His Divine Grace had said. In
Bengali Srila Prabhupada spoke something to Bhakticaru at
which he at once translated to us as Srila Prabhupada is saying, Someone has poisoned
him. There was a moment of silence and we were all shocked at this.
Then once again Srila Prabhupada said also only to Bhakticaru in Bengali which
Bhakticaru instantly translated as, "He's saying
he's been poisoned like they poisoned his Guru Maharaja." Tamala
Krsna was to the back of the bed and he came around to Srila Prabhupada's left
hand side and said, "Who has poisoned you Srila Prabhupada?"
And then said without waiting for an answer to his question "No one could
poison you it would surely have to be some poison as you are always protected
by the Holy Name."
(Witness- Name withheld) " He's been telling me for the last twenty-four years that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned. He even told me he suspected Srila Prabhupada was being poisoned before he left this world. Now he is denying. What is my gain or loss to say this. Bhakticaru Maharaja may remember that I introduced him to Krsna Consciousness and to the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada. Why is he saying lies? Why is he denying like this?"
(Witness- Name withheld) " I was very suspicious about Srila Prabhupada's early departure when Bhakticaru approached me in a panicky mood. He was crying and weeping heavily. It was Nov, 15 th 1977. He said to me, Srila Prabhupada said someone had poisoned him. Bhakticaru: (in Europe) "It's just natural when you get such shocking complaints from Srila Prabhupada, who is very dear to you and he just happened to be the person you thought you were serving lovingly, then suddenly, the food you gave him might have been poisoned!!!"
The list of witnesses is formidable, and shall be produced in the proper arena. For now we will continue with Bhakticaru's "testimony" in the book, "Not that I am Poisoned" (NTIP).
Bhakticaru: ( Page 123, para-2) (quote) "......what to speak of poisoning Srila Prabhupada, the devotees around Srila Prabhupada were praying to Krsna to let Srila Prabhupada stay on the planet in exchange of their lives." (unquote). Yes. BIF partially agrees with Bhakticaru. There was a great deal of praying going on. Even Srila Prabhupada noticed this. Here are his thoughts on the matter: SP: " You are all here praying for me to live and 'they' are in the next room praying for me to die."
Bhakticaru: ( Page-124, para-2) (quote) " Srila Prabhupada had to just tell any one of the few hundred devotees that were there (about the poisoning), and one can imagine what the reaction would have been like." (unquote). But he did!!! He told Bhakticaru, he told Tamala, Jayapataka, Bhavananda the kaviraja and others. There is more than ample evidence to prove it. Yet NOTHING was done. Not even the basic desideratum was carried out. What really astounds us; is the rainbow of political factions, who have chosen to drown in their stubbornness rather than admit it. To them we say: BIF is not seeking any recognition. We have no political agenda. Nor do we choose to grandstand or lead. We are simply dedicated and indebted sons of His Divine Grace, who will remain in this material world, until this vile business of our Gurudeva's disappearance is brought before the Courts.
Bhakticaru: (Page-124/25) (quote) "One evening I was with Tamala Krsna Maharaja in our room in Vrindavan. A mosquito was sucking his blood sitting on his leg. It had become quite bloated with the blood that it sucked from his body. A sudden pain from the bite made TKM aware of that mosquito. His hand rose in a natural reflex to strike that little creature, but stopped all of a sudden, and then it came down slowly and flicked the mosquito away from his leg. The person who would not even kill the mosquito that was sucking his blood, how can anyone think that he gave poison to his spiritual master." (unquote). This tail-wagging-bum-sniffing attitude exposes the possible complicity of Bhakticaru in the cabal. According to him: if Tamala couldn't even kill a mosquito he was incapable of poisoning his spiritual master. So if we accept this logic, then Tamala could possibly have poisoned Srila Prabhupada if he was a mosquito killer. Okay. A BIF operative, had no idea how an after-prasadam discussion (taped), would have any bearing on this story. But it did. Here it is:
Induleikha Mastaji (IM) : It was in ' 95 at Mayapura. I was having some family problems and needed to talk to TKG to help me with some direction. I remember it was Mayapura because there was no brahmacarini asram and I was having difficulty finding a place to stay. So I went up to see him.
BIF: Where exactly did Tamala meet with you?
IM: It was upstairs in one of those rooms in the conch building.
BIF: Who else was there? Where were you in proximity to Tamala? And where was he?
IM: I don't remember who else was there, but I remember sitting on the floor. Tamala was sitting up on a bed looking down.
BIF: Okay. So what happened next?
IM: A mosquito was trying to bite me. It sat on my face and I drove it off. Soon it was back again, this time it landed on my arm. I shooed it off again. Then I heard TKG say, "Kill it." I looked up. He was looking straight at me. "Kill it," he repeated. His eyes were intense (she demonstrated by fixing her eyes without blinking).
BIF: What did you do?
IM: I was scared. The mosquito had gone. I remember feeling some relief. But then it was back again and TKG was saying again, "Kill it !... I said kill it !"
BIF: Why didn't you just kill it?
IM: I didn't want to. Besides, I would have blood all over my hands. So I said to him, "No I won't."
BIF: Wow! And then what?
IM: He just glowered at me, then got up and walked straight out the room without saying another word.
So much for Tamala's soft heart. He wanted the mosquito dead, and when it wasn't killed he rejected the pleas of a woman who needed his help and guidance.
(Witness- Name withheld) (quote) "Tamala is a very cruel man. He is capable of the most heinous atrocities" (unquote). So Bhakticaru can take his eulogies of Tamala and stick it where the monkey stuck his last nut. We are not impressed.
Bhakticaru: (Page-126, para-2) (quote) "To this world I will declare clear and loudly, "It is an absolutely absurd allegation that Srila Prabhupada has been poisoned by his disciples. If anyone intentionally poisoned Srila Prabhupada, then it must be me because those days I was the only one who used to give prasad and medicines to His Divine Grace whatever he ate and drank went through my hands." (unquote).
[Comment by Aruna das, Austria: Charu Swami, you liar, cheater, hypocrit, first you tell us that Prabhupada has being poisoned and later you state the exact opposite. Yes, it was you who killed Prabhupada by offering him poisonous food which Tamal has prepared with arsenic.]
Please note: Bhakticaru believes
it is an absolutely absurd allegation that Srila Prabhupada has been poisoned
by his disciples. There is no need for any reverse speech analysis here. What
he's saying is; it would not be absurd to believe that Srila Prabhupada could
have been poisoned by someone other than his disciples. In fact, he doesn't argue
against the poisoning at all. Then he says (quote) "If
anyone intentionally poisoned Srila Prabhupada then it must be me....."(
unquote). So we must assume; since he is not disputing the fact that Srila Prabhupada
was poisoned, and if it was not "intentionally" done by him, then it
must have been done "accidentally" by someone else. A disassociated
demon on a busman's holiday perhaps?? Here it is: Kaviraja: (quote) "Listen,
this is the understanding that some raksasa (may) have given (poison)......Caru
swami (Bhakticaru says "yes")..some raksasa has given (poison). This
can happen. It's not impossible (unquote). Is this sanity? Can you imagine what
a jury would think? Who allowed this man near Srila Prabhupada? But most importantly:
Why didn't this "absurd" and "irrational" deduction raise
even the slightest argument or need for clarification from Bhakticaru, Tamala,
Jayapataka or Bhavananda? They were all there. How is it that a suggestion so
far-fetched, didn't so much as raise a yahoo from these cowboys? WHY?? Can we
see the coven if not the covenant? The mob if not the hit? The poisoners if not
When BIF members traveled around the world spending time and money to raise signatures for a petition, we were surprised at the total lack of interest in this parricide. Why our brothers and sisters have chosen to remain indifferent to this issue, which covers the matha of our Gurudeva like poison oozing from every orifice of the demon, remains a mystery. Ask any Christian, "Who killed Jesus?" and they will say "Roman soldiers." No one knows their names. But ask anyone, " Who washed his hands off Jesus?" and they will answer, "Pontious Pilate." Does this not say; indifference is eternally damned?
PARAM BHAKTI SAKTI, SRILA PRABHUPADA KI JAYA !!
BIF-5, Part-2, will continue with the "Testimonies and Statements" as presented in the book, "Not that I am Poisoned." Part-2 will address the "testimony" of Tamala Krsna.
