"Judge For Yourself" (JFY)
TO ALL CONCERNED FOLLOWERS OF HIS DIVINE GRACE, SRILA PRABHUPADA
Dear devotees, Please accept our humble obeisances. All Glories to His Divine
"Judge For Yourself" (JFY) is an important document for those concerned with the "poison issue." This notice is being posted to solicit an 'expression of interest.' The manuscript is ready and will soon be in the hands of printers. When printed, the book will also house a CD on the inside jacket. While the book (JFY) delivers up-to-date documents/ evidence that has never been seen or heard before, the CD contains all relevant Bengali/ Hindi translations and forensically identified 'whispers' from the poison conversations at Srila Prabhupada's bedside.
JFY is a non-profit venture. All the hard work has already been done. We simply ask devotees and friends to inform us how many copies they would like to send to friends or other interested parties. Once we have established a total printing figure, the cost per book will be known. We will post this publicly and contact you personally with order information as soon as printing costs have been finalised, based on the total printing. We already have a standing order for 2,000 copies. All orders from this point on will help further bring down the printing cost. As mentioned before, this is a non-profit venture -- you are expected to pay for printing, CD, and shipping costs only. For all inquiries contact firstname.lastname@example.org before Feb. 1st '03.
Please find below, the "Table of Contents" for JFY. Hare Krsna. "JUDGE FOR YOURSELF" (JFY).
His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), in the last days of his physical presence, in late 1977, made several statements that indicated directly and indirectly the possibility of his being administered poison. His attending servants and physicians confirmed this understanding in recorded conversations at that time. Overwhelming evidence has since surfaced regarding this issue, much of which has been unavailable or misrepresented to the followers of Srila Prabhupada. This report documents the recorded statements of His Divine Grace and those present with him in November 1977, as well as all the evidence available to date in its entirety, with objective commentary and supporting documents. Please examine the facts and "Judge For Yourself".
PART ONE CHAPTER ONE
US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) States Chronic Arsenic Poisoning Range 1 5ppm/ Srila Prabhupada Arsenic Level 2.6 ppm
The concentration of arsenic found in Srila Prabhupadas hair clippings was determined by state-of-the-art, highly accurate, neutron activation analysis. Concluded by expert opinion to be twenty times higher than a normal average, the 2.6 ppm concentration discovered is certainly cause for alarm. Statements by various government, academic, and scientific authorities confirm that levels in individuals with chronic (arsenic) poisoning range between 1 and 5 ppm. Further, 2. 6 ppm ranges between dangerous and very dangerous.
SRILA PRABHUPADAS PHYSICIANS SAY POISONING POSSIBLE AND EVEN DEFINITE
When specifically asked if Srila Prabhupada could have been poisoned, several of the physicians that had treated him in late 1977 responded in the affirmative, including the physician misquoted by NTIP: Dr McIrvine of the United Kingdom. Their responses ranged from 'poisoning being possible' to 'slow poisoning was diagnosed and reported.'
"THE RAVANA WILL KILL (ME)" (SRILA PRABHUPADA, NOV 10, 1977 CONVERSATIONS
For the first time, followers of Srila Prabhupada will be able to read/hear the complete text of the relevant "poison conversations," as well as enhancements of 'whispers' provided by top rated audio forensic engineers. This Chapter analyses the documented "Conversations" with His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada, just prior to his disappearance. The recordings are identified as tapes T-44, 45 & 46. Transcripts of the tapes are available in a BBT publication entitled: "Conversations with Srila Prabhupada Volume 36." Tapes and book are available from the BBT Archives: Sandy Ridge, North Carolina.
TAMAL KRSNA INCRIMINATES HIMSELF AS WHISPERING: "THE POISON'S GOING DOWN."
This chapter deals with the audio forensic evidence that identifies the whisper; "Its going down... the poisons going down." Three top level audio forensic engineers in the United States have identified the word 'poison' as a frequent utterance. This chapter identifies the people in the room at the time, and confirms Tamal Krsnas admittance to being the person who spoke the whisper. It also deals with the statement of the GBC 'expert' who they claimed denied the whisper. We show a signed statement by their witness claiming that he was misquoted in the GBC book, "Not That I am Poisoned."
PART TWO CHAPTER ONE
BHAVANANDA DAS (a.k.a Charles Bacis): EXPOSED CHILD ABUSER NOW SUSPECT IN POISONING
Part Two of our report, deals with "testimonies" offered by suspects and their supporters in the GBC publication: "Not That I am Poisoned" (NTIP).
With the death of Tamal Krsna (a.k.a Thomas Herzig), Bhavananda Das becomes the next living prime suspect in the poisoning of His Divine Grace, A. C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). It was Bhavanada who was standing beside Tamal Krsna, and closest to the tape recorder when the whisper, "The poisons going down" was picked up on tape. From position and voice identification, the giggle that follows the whisper identifies Bhavananda as the person standing with Tamal Krsna.
BHAKTICARU: THE FIRST DISCIPLE TO REPORT, "SOMEONE HAS POISONED HIM." (Conversations. Vol. 36. Page 367. Nov. 1977)
Part Two; Chapter Two is a discrete study of the 'statement' by Bhakticaru. Posted on the VNN website ('Let The Truth Prevail' 4/10/99), the statement was later added to the GBC book "Not That I am Poisoned" (NTIP, 121 p).
Bhakticaru was appointed Srila Prabhupada's 'nurse' during the final days. He was assigned to the position by Tamal Krsna (Prabhupada's secretary). Surprisingly, his appointment had nothing to do with medical accreditation (he had none). Although Bhakticaru has made a statement in the GBC book (NTIP) that he believed the poison allegation to be absurd, his audio taped statements in the presence of Srila Prabhupada will show that he declared openly and publicly, "Someone has poisoned him," meaning: someone had poisoned Srila Prabhupada.
TAMAL KRSNA CLAIMS THAT SRILA PRABHUPADA ASKED TO BE POISONED (Recorded Conversation, Nov. 1977)
We analyse the writings of Tamal Krsna (a.k.a Thomas Herzig) to show 1) How Srila Prabhupada has been portrayed as a personality so weak, he "desired" to be murdered by Tamal Krsna. 2) How Tamal Krsna depicted Srila Prabhupada as a soul so bereft of transcendental understanding that he was willing to commit suicide; 3) How Tamal Krsna actually admits the decision to allow Srila Prabhupada to live or die, lay with him (Tamal Krsna); 4) How Tamal Krsna surreptitiously doctored the "poison conversations" in an attempt to deflect suspicion from himself and render the facts obsolete; 5) How Tamal Krsna deliberately misled readers by editing himself out from the "Ram will kill / Ravana will kill" conversation in his book, 'TKG's Diary.' We also show excerpts from the taped conversation between Satsvarupa and Tamal Krsna, in which Tamal Krsna says Srila Prabhupada asked him (TK) to administer the poison.
