*Please read the following statements carefully*:

  1. "But today, when I look back, I can see that soon after Srila Prabhupada's disappearance we took it for granted that Srila Prabhupada is not here any more - like any other mortal, as he left his body, he is no more. I very strongly feel that this is the greatest mistake we have made."

  2. "Let us recognize that Srila Prabhupada has not gone away. Rather, he has simply disappeared from our vision. Although we are not able to see him any more with our mundane vision, he is very much there, watching us from the spiritual sky. He will always be there to guide us, provided we remain fixed up at his lotus feet. He will reward us when we please him and he will chastise us if we make mistake."

  3. "Therefore, with all sincerity, I say that we are losing everything because we had been thinking that Srila Prabhupada is now dead and gone, and we started to claim our shares of our inheritance."

  4. "How natural it is to see that Srila Prabhupada is 'the guru' of ISKCON, still today. It occurred to me how clear a fact that is. Still, how seldom we act according to that understanding! Or do we ever act at all with that understanding?"

  5. "Nevertheless, everyday, in all the temples of ISKCON, Srila Prabhupada is worshipped by everyone. Then why do we hesitate to tell a new comer who is searching for a guru that Srila Prabhupada, the best guru the world has ever seen, is still here, and one can surrender unto him and go back to Godhead very easily? When we have such a great good fortune, why do we not take full advantage of it? It is only when we do so that the glorious days of ISKCON will come back again and we will witness Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's sankirtan movement starting to spread in leaps and bounds all over the world."

  6. "If we really love ISKCON and if we sincerely want the Krishna Consciousness movement to spread all over the world in every town and village, then let us broadcast all over the world that Srila Prabhupada is still with us and that anyone who wants to receive his mercy can approach him and establish his eternal relationship with him."

  7. "Let us take up the solemn responsibility to recognize the fact that he is always present in his ISKCON, and that whoever wants to can come and meet him here, still today."

The statements make it very clear that:

  1. Srila Prabhupada is still here today, watching us, GUIDING us, REWARDING us and CHASTISING us if we make a mistake.
  2. That Srila Prabhupada is the Guru of ISKCON today.
  3. That anyone looking for a Guru, need only surrender to Srila Prabhupada,the best Guru there is, and go back to Godhead.
  4. That Srila Prabhupada is here today to APPROACH, to MEET, and to establish an eternal relationship with.
  5. That all the problems in ISKCON are based on NOT accepting the above facts, and that ISKCON will only flourish ONCE the above facts are accepted.

Now any sane individual would simply conclude that they have just been reading the preaching of the IRM - for indeed the above is EXACTLY what we say. Alas no. It is actually stated by the same individual who has supported the expulsion of the IRM TWICE from ISKCON, for the crime of simply stating the EXACT SAME thing which he now states!

Our readers could be forgiven for doing a double-take at this most bizarre situation. However it all makes sense when we reveal that the individual who made the above statements is that master of double-talk and bluff - our old friend Bhakti Caru Swami (BCS). Yes, the above Ritvik message was given by BCS as part of his lecture on Srila Prabhupada's Disappearance day. As we revealed in a previous article, BCS also said we must REVIVE ISKCON back to the way things were pre-77 i.e. 'No Change' - again the manifesto of the IRM (ISKCON Revival Movement). Yet despite preaching this we will note that he has not asked the GBC to expel himself for preaching this same 'deviant' philosophy!

Thus it is very clear that despite these weasel words, the biggest EXPONENT of acting as if Srila Prabhupada is 'dead and gone' and NOT here to guide as the Guru who will take us back to Godhead, is Bhakti Caru Swami HIMSELF, for we have reported in previous articles about BCS:

If anyone wants proof as to WHY Kali-Yuga is known as the age of HYPOCRISY - they need look no further than Bhakti Caru Swami himself. We have proven that hypocrisy positively oozes from every single pore of his body. How else can one explain that the MORE he acts as the 'living' Guru to be worshipped as 'Good as God', the MORE he is preaching the COMPLETE OPPOSITE!

We had written a previous article which featured a story about the 'GBC'S Best Trick Yet'. We apologise. BCS has gone one further:

PREACH that Srila Prabhupada is the Guru PRACTICE that HE (BCS) is the Guru And then both cheater (BCS) and the cheated (his disciples) feel satisfied that they are honoring Srila Prabhupada. Thus we can see very clearly why Srila Prabhupada stated that the bogus 'guru business' in kali-yuga is simply a collection of the cheaters and the cheated. We only wonder how long BCS thinks he will be able to get away with this charade of glorifying Srila Prabhupada with WORDS, but having HIS OWN SELF worshipped in DEED.

At least no follower of BCS can ever object to assisting the mission of the IRM, since their Guru Maharaja is now preaching the very same message!
