Please study the following statement:
|“Like the mystery of Dan Brown’s Da
Vinci Code, no one knows the whole picture; no one has all the
answers. But, I believe, we have each understood certain facets
of the truth. By questioning and exploring the fruit of our
received traditions, we can release their flavours and then
share the goodness with one another. “
(BBC Radio 4, March 15th 2006 )
One would be forgiven for thinking that this was the rambling of some “new age” thinker, trying to show how all truth is relative. Unfortunately, no. These are the public pronouncements of Akhandhadi Das, premier lecturer of the “Truth and Dharma” courses at Bhaktivedanta College, ISKCON’s institute of higher learning.
Akhandhadi Das, one may remember, was featured previously as an alcohol salesman, who began the campaign of banning IRM members from visiting the temple.
Is this the fidelity a disciple of Srila Prabhupada is supposed to display, to publicly state that Srila Prabhupada can only possess relative truth, and on the BBC no less!
ISKCON’s descent into anti-Prabhupada offensive behaviour continues.
