HE WAS ALSO SERVED
Note Srila Prabhupada's
swollen hands and sun glasses, the effects of the arsenic poisoning.
His Divine Grace A. C.
Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
Behind (left) is the chief culprit
Tamal Krishna a.k.a.Thomas Herzig who
conspired with other pesudo-Krishna
cult leaders to poison Srila Prabhupada to death.
Note Srila Prabhupada's
swollen hands and sun glasses, the effects of the arsenic poisoning.
Dr. Mehta, an Ayurvedic physician who lives in Houston, was
shown several photographs of Srila Prabhupada during His last days, and he also
observed the video documentary of Srila Prabhupada's last months entitled: "The
Final Lesson." Dr. Mehta has been a practicing Ayurvedic physician since 1948.
His summary comments are:
"The expression and symptoms of the face, the eyes and
the manner of speaking indicate to me that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned, most
probably by arsenic or mercury. He Himself said that He was poisoned, confirmed
by dullness of the face and how the natural color of the body is gone. This is
very hard for the average person to understand; only the experienced eye can tell."
HE WAS ALSO SERVED WITH POISON
A snake-quality man is
very dangerous. Canakya Pandita has said,
sarpah krurah khalah krurah
sarpat kruratarah khalah
khalah kena nivaryate
"There are two envious living
entities. One is a snake, black snake, and one is a human being with the quality
of black snake." He cannot see any good thing. Sarpah krurah. The snake is envious.
Without any fault he bites. A snake is there on the street, and if you happen
to pass by him he becomes so angry, immediately he bites. So this is the snake's
nature. Similarly, there are persons like the snake. Without any fault they will
accuse you. They are also snake. So Canakya Pandita says that "This black snake
is less harmful than the man snake." Why? "Now, this black snake, by chanting
some mantra or by some herb can bring him under your control. But this man snake
you cannot. It is not possible."
So there will be..... So there are these
snakelike persons. They are envious about our movement, and they are opposing.
That is the nature. Prahlada Maharaja also was opposed by his father, what to
speak of others. These things will happen, but we should
not be disappointed, as Prahlada Maharaja never became disappointed although he
was teased in so many ways. He was also served with poison,
he was thrown amongst the serpents and he was thrown from the hill, he was put
under the feet of elephant. In so many ways put... Therefore Caitanya Mahaprabhu
has instructed us that "Do not be disappointed. Kindly forbear." Trnad api sunicena
taror api sahisnuna. Be tolerant more than the tree. I mean to say, one shall
be meek and humble more than the grass. These things will happen. In one life
if we execute our Krsna consciousness attitude, even there is suffering little,
don't mind. Go on with Krsna consciousness. Don't be disappointed or hopeless,
even there is some trouble. That is encouraged by Krsna in Bhagavad-gita: agamapayino
'nityas tams titiksasva bharata: "My dear Arjuna, even if you feel some pain,
this bodily pain, it comes and goes. Nothing is permanent, so don't care for these
things. Go on with your duty." This is the instruction of Krsna. Prahlada Maharaja
is the practical example, and our duty is to follow the footprints of such person
like Prahlada Maharaja......So we should always depend on Krsna's assurance. In
any circumstances, any dangerous position, Krsna... Avasya raksibe krsna visvasa
palana. This is surrender. Surrender means... One of the item is full faith in
Krsna, that "In execution of my devotional service there may be so many dangers,
but because I have taken shelter of Krsna's lotus feet, I am safe."
This, this faith for Krsna.
bhavambudhir vatsa-padam param
padam padam yad vipadam na tesam
Padam padam yad vipadam
na tesam. Vipadam means dangerous position. Padam padam, every step in this
material world--na tesam, not for the devotee.
Lecture, 7.9.8 Mayapur, February 28, 1977)
Note: Srila Prabhupada says "So
there are these snakelike persons. They are envious about our movement, and they
are opposing." Then he goes on to say "Prahlada Maharaja
also was opposed by his father, what to speak of others"
So Prahlada Maharaja
was also opposed by a snakelike person namely his
father just like Srila Prabhupada is now being opposed by similar snakelike
persons who are envious about his movement.
Srila Prabhupada then describes further
about these snakelike persons opposition: "These things will
happen, but we should not be disappointed, as Prahlada Maharaja never
became disappointed although he was teased in so many ways. He was
also served with poison"
If Srila Prabhupada says of Prahlada
"He was also served with poison" then it is clear that
there is another person who is now receiving the same treatment. If we look at the context in which his Divine
Grace is speaking we can see that he is describing about man snakes who are
envious of his movement, and they are opposing it. He gives Prahlada
as an example of one who was also opposed and goes on to
say he was also served poison.
Therefore Srila Prabhupada is saying that Prahlada was
also opposed in the same way that he and his movement is
now opposed, and that Prahlada was also served with
poison, just as he is now being served with poison by his snakelike
pseudo-disciples. (note: February 28, 1977)
Then he says that because he has taken shelter of Krsna's
lotus feet, he is safe and that this dangerous position is not effecting
The following statements by Srila Prabhupada, prove without doubt that he
is that person who is being served poison as Prahlada also
"someone has poisoned me"
Srila Prabhupada: Someone
says that I've been poisoned. It is possible.

* Side note: If we look at how Srila Prabhupada
always uses the word "it is possible" we will notice he uses it to say it is a
fact ! Here are two examples:

attempted to be killed by Kamsa class of men and his company, the demons.
So it will be there;
it is already there. Don't be disappointed, because that
is the meaning that it is successful. Krsna's favor is there, because Krsna and
Krsna's movement is not different, nondiff..., identical. So as Krsna was
attempted to be killed, many, many years before He appeared... At eighth child,

birth, the mother was to be attempted to be killed. So there may be

they may kill me also.
(S.P.Room Conversation May 3, 1976,
Srila Prabhupada says there may be an
attempt to kill him or his movement. If we look earlier in the conversation he
actually says the attempt will be there. This is the clear evidence from the
lotus mouth of Srila Prabhupada. He goes on to say it is already there, in other
words the poison was given from as early as May 1976. Srila Prabhupada's health
was very bad on May 4th 1976 the day after he said " So it will be there; it is

Srila Prabhupada says "The Ravana will kill and Rama
will kill. Better to be killed by Rama." That means he is saying it is better to
be amongst my real disciples (good paddy) on Parikrama and die there than stay
with demons and be poisoned to death.
In other words with this above statement alone
Srila Prabhupada is saying he is been killed by demons. Only other similar
heartless demons with no love for Srila Prabhupada cannot hear him saying this.

Note: Whether or not there is an margin of error on forensic tests,
Srila Prabhupada's senses are perfect and beyond the errors of a conditioned
soul. He says "I do not know, but it is said."
Therefore we can accept it as a fact after hearing from the perfect
source, that there were talks (whispers) of Srila Prabhupada been poisoned.
Therefore there is an error margin of ZERO !

All the above statements by Srila
Prabhupada about his being poisoned are actually the
direct revelation of the Supreme Lord through the lotus mouth of his
confidential servant Srila Prabhupada.

The Personality of Godhead, being situated
in everyone's heart, specifically gives a devotee intelligence to describe Him.
It is therefore understood that when a devotee writes or speaks about the
Supreme Personality of Godhead, his words are dictated by the Lord from
within. This is confirmed in Bhagavad-Gita, Tenth Chapter: to those who constantly engage in
the transcendental loving service of the Lord, the Lord, from within,
dictates what to do next in order to serve Him.

2.) The Enemy - the envious
There are similarly men also. Unnecessarily
they are envious, offensive, unnecessary. They cannot tolerate others' opulence.
Just like our Godbrothers. They are envious. What I have done to them?
I am doing my business, trying to serve my Guru Maharaja. But
they are envious because I am so opulent. I have got so much fame, so many
influence, so much influence all over the world. Everyone is praising me
about... That is ignorance. And this is regrettable because
they are posing themselves as Vaisnava. Ordinary man can do
that, but they are dressing like Vaisnava, and they are so envious.

fighting, fighting in the court and died. Simply planning.

Their only business is to kill Krsna. He is also doing that, our, this Bon

enemies to their standard of civilization. That is the problem. We are enemies,
certainly. We frankly say, "This civilization is soul-killing. We have to save
them, para upakara." Actually that is also fact, they are misleading people that
the skin is everything. That is not the fact. The soul is everything. That they

Movement has threatened the foundation of Western Civilization. One American

capture the government. This is a good certification for our success, but the
time has come now when we have to meet strong opposition. After all this Hare

seriously, then certainly India's glories will be magnified.
