Oops … Did I really say that? 

Summer 2006

Below are some quotes from His Holiness Narayana Maharaja:

“Our Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti sannyasis (Narayana Maharaja’s organisation) have never fallen. I have strong belief in this, as I have seen our Gurudeva’s sannyasis; none of them have ever become deviated. And, only in a very exceptional case has any of Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura’s sannyasa disciples fallen. Those who cannot fall are the real ISKCON.”
(Narayana Maharaja Lecture, June 29th, 2002)

“There are many examples of persons who have been renounced sannyasis for 20 or 30 years; such persons may even have initiated disciples. However, after years of service to his gurudeva, he may conclude, “I’m in a dilemma; I have not realized anything. Everything that I believed to be true is false. I’m giving up my sannyasa and my chanting and remembering; I will no longer cheat others. I’m going to marry and start a real life.”
(Narayana Maharaja Lecture, Austria, September 19th, 2002)

“If he (Srila Prabhupada) had told them everything, and if they were so knowledgeable and expert, why have so many of the senior devotees, even those in the renounced order, fallen down? Where are they now? […]
If there is no need for Prabhupada’s disciples to continue hearing from a bona fide guru, then why are they falling? Why? I know more than you, much more than you.”
(Narayana Maharaja Lecture, Canada, April 2001)

“If all the devotees, sannyasis and so many brahmacaris with saffron cloth were serving him and following him, then why did they leave the institution? Why all this? Why did they leave and become weak? Why? It means that they are not aware of what Srila Swami Maharaja (Srila Prabhupada) wanted. They were not following so much.”
(Narayana Maharaja Lecture, Lecture, California, June 10th, 2000)

[Note: Sannyasa = celibate, renounced monastic order. Sannyasi = renunciant. Brahmacari = celibate student monk].

Above, Narayana Maharaja uses the fall of ISKCON sannyasis as evidence of the following:

a) Their fall from sannyasa proves that they never belonged to the real ISKCON.
b) Their fall from sannyasa happened because they “have not realised anything” and everything they “believed to be true is false.”
c) Their fall from sannyasa was because they were not knowledgeable and therefore they need to hear from a bona fide guru such as Narayana Maharaja.
d) Their fall from sannyasa was because they were not aware of what Srila Prabhupada wanted.

Since two of Narayana Maharaja’s top sannyasisBhaktisar Maharaja (ex-Dhrstadyumna Swami/Das from ISKCON) and Aranya Maharaja (ex-Parantapa Das when with ISKCON, and ex-Premaproyajna Das when with the non-ISKCON Gaura Govinda Swami camp) – have also now fallen from sannyasa, after being sannyasis for just a few years, then according to Narayana Maharaja’s OWN WORDS, we can conclude the following:

a) Narayana Maharaja’s movement is NOT the real ISKCON.
b) If one hears from Narayana Maharaja they will not realise anything and what they believe to be true will be false.
c) There is no need to hear from Narayana Maharaja, as he is not a bona fide guru that one can hear from to be saved from falling.
d) Narayana Maharaja’s sannyasis were not aware of what Srila Prabhupada wanted.
