7 months after I posted my documentary movie “Sannyasi sasi experiment”, I received a first complaint by mataji Ekangini 6 days ago. She tried to dispute my claim about conversation she had with Dhanudhara Swami which happended at 11:00 of my video. I added video below, so it is easy to review her complaint. The part of the video in question was deleted.
The complaint - full disclosure
Screenshots are on Croatian, I am giving full translation here:
Oct 5th 2016
Hanuman: PAMHO I have one questions. One devotee told me: “On that camp Ekangini felt ill when she saw pidgeons how to lovingly talk all day, so she want to Dharnurdhara Swami to open his mind, and he convinced her that SHE CAN’T imagine who is Sacinandana Swami and how exalted devotee he is.” Is that true? Statement of this devotee is regarding Sacinandana Swami and Bhanu Nandini.

Ekangini: Hare Krsna! Recently I heard from some devotees that you put me and mentioned me in one of your videos. I couldn’t find that video, I wanted to watch it. I am writing to you to tell you that you didn’t ask me for permission !?! You didn’t check if that is true or not !
I don’t know from whom did you hear that stuff which you used to insult my guru through me? You will never do this again in my name and I warmly suggest to you that you stop insulting.
If you are doing it, don’t involve other people in it, especially without their permission.
Hanuman das: Hare Rama. I asked you over this chat.
(PASTED SCREENSHOT from Oct 2016)
Here is a proof. I didn’t receive any answer from you. I asked you over this chat on October 5th 2016. Video is located here: https://lastingimpression.info/ramesh_sacinandana/the_sannyasi_dasi_experiment/
For video, I used statements of devotees and your photographs which were already publicly available and for that I don’t need permission. If there are any errors in this video, please notify me, and we will add that to web page.
As far as insulting is concerned, I think it is wrong for a sannyasi to travel with female secretary. I am standing behind this point, and that is not offense. In the end, I asked Sacinandana Swami himself many times what is his relationship with Bhanu Nandini. Sacinandana Swami didn’t reply to any of my letters.
Ekangini: Who wrote you that info about me that I went to talk to Dhanurdhara Swami because of Bhanu Nandini? That person is lying because it is not true. I went to speak with him because of another reason. And my relationship with guru is only mine and it is none of anybody else’s business. You asked me if you can publish that. Firstly, I don’t remember it because if I saw it, I would surely say no. Since I didn’t reply, because I didn’t see it, does that mean you can publish it?
As far as video is concerned, I am at work now, so I can’t watch it. But as soon as I come home. And then we will talk more. This is one terrible lie of envious person and I want it to be corrected. Terrible!
Hanuman das: ok, it will be corrected.
Ekangini dasi: I am watching. I never received your question on messenger.
Hanuman das: Weird.

Ekangini dasi: Dear god, man, what did you tell there. Everything is terrible shameless lie. On darsan with Dhanurdhara Swami I didn’t even remember Bhanunandini, what to speak of mentioning her. That terrible things which you said that I said never crossed my mind even in my dreams. I want all of this deleted and I want you to publicly apologize yourself on your web page and on facebook and to tell everybody that you were telling untruth about me. How can you say something like that based on “hear say” from some person who told you everything about me, and none of it is true. You should be ashamed of yourself. How would you feel that someone spreads lies about you. I feel very terrible, angry and sad because of you. And because of you I had to watch this terrible video. I want to vomit. You need to correct all this and publicly apologize in front of whole ISKCON. And you should never again talk about me.
Hanuman das: About what topic did you talk with Dhanurdhara Swami then?
Ekangini dasi: And you would love to know everything. These are my private matters and non of anybody else’s business. Ask Krishna. And delete this right away.
Hanuman das: 😄 I will write your refutal next to video, that is all. I have photos where your guru is walking around with Bhanu Nandini on that camp.
Ekangini dasi: No, you will remove me from that video. How, that is your problem. And publicly on facebook and on your page you need to apologize to me.
Hanuman das: I will not delete anything, you are 7 months late.
Ekangini dasi: I just found out few days ago.
Hanuman das: I obtained this information from devotee who is 15 years in the movement, chants 16 rounds and doesn’t have any reason to lie.
Ekangini dasi: Please, I don’t want to communicate with you anymore. You have wonderful company. Send apology and delete this and DON’T WRITE TO ME ANYMORE.
Hanuman das: Ok, I’ll write to Dhanurdhara Swami so we will see what is truth.
Ekangini dasi: Do whatever you want, I hope Krishna will be merciful to you.
Hanuman das: You are starting to annoy me with defending Ramesh sahajiya who has a girlfriend for the last 10 years. You can believe in that, but many people don’t. On his own website, he has photos from his honeymoon in Australia. And don’t write to me with this commanding tone, you are starting to annoy me. Ramesh sahajiyas can never give orders to Prabhupada’s followers.

Letter to Dhanurdhara Swami
Message-ID: <CAHEdfkERQDzyOb3AHhGtXDQ00xovUFzzKt2obYysUbjpnRaNZQ@mail.gmail.com> Date: Wed, 24 May 2017 20:04:57 +0000 Subject: distant past question From: Hanuman das To: Dhanurdhara Swami
Dear Dhanurdhara Swami,
please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
My name is Hanuman das, I am disciple of Sridhar Swami ACBSP.
7 months ago, I made a documentary, in which I mentioned your meeting in Ekangini SNS, in 2009.
Photo is attached, Ekangini talking with Sacinandana Swami, and you standing on the side. I hope this can serve as memory refreshment. This was in Croatia, adriatic coast.
One claim is that Ekangini couldn’t understand why Sacinandana Swami was so close with Bhanu Nandini, and that you told her “You can’t even imagine how advanced Sacinandana Swami is”. Ekangini now claims that she didn’t talk with you about this topic at all. I am trying to figure out what actually happened and if my documentary movie was wrong.
ys Hanuman das.

Dear Hanuman Prabhu,
My obeisances. Jaya Srila Prabhupada!
I loved your guru maharaja very much and its always nice to meet his disciples and be reminded of his qualities and our relationship.
I remember standing by the pier there and talking to EKangini about the drama she was in at the retreat and then Sacinandana Swami came to approach me and then said a few words to her. I guess that is the picture there. I don’t remember the dialogue below there at all.
I hope this meets you well.
Humbly in service,
Devotee who reported this story wanted to stay anonymous, I contacted him again to obtain his comment about Ekangini’s claim, and I received no reply, therefore I decided to remove that part of the video which contains Ekangini’s testimony.
I will not apologize to nonsense Ramesh follower Ekangini dasi because I exercised all due diligence while leading this investigation. I obtained testimony from credible witness, I contacted Ekangini to confirm the story. It’s not my problem that she “didn’t see my message”, I find that very strange.
Who is lying here, it’s hard to say? Was my witness lying, or Ekangini is lying? Dhanurdhara Swami can’t remember. In this particular case, I decided to delete the questionable part of the video just to be sure.
Still, Ekangini didn’t even touch the main topic of this video. Why is she following Ramesh sahajiya who is traveling around the world with his girlfriend? I want to say that only ignorant people follow Ramesh sahajiyas, sannyasi with female secretary is a joke.
She says the video is “terrible”, and she “wanted to vomit” after watching it. So, it is ok for sannyasis to have girlfriend and travel with her around the world, but it is not ok to make videos about it?
If Sacinandana “Swami” is traveling around the world with his secretary, this is “divine lila”, but if I make video about it, then you vomit after watching it. What intelligent person will find any logic in this. Prabhupada was very clear regarding this issue:
In the name of religion you do all nonsense rascaldom, and if the leader approves, “Yes, you can do.” Vivekananda did it. Vivekananda did it. “Yes, there is no difference between eating meat and not meating eat in terms of religious system.” He preached this, and all the sannyāsīs of Ramakrishna Mission, they eat meat, they drink, they have WOMAN SECRETARY, and everything. This Chinmayananda also like that. I know his whole history. Unless one is purely Kṛṣṇa conscious, one cannot give up ALL THESE BAD HABITS. This is the test. (Morning walk — April 24, 1974, Hyderabad)
Zagreb - the banned city
Sacindana Swami and his disciples are traitors of Prabhupada’s legacy. They are banning people from ISKCON just because they are against Ramesh baba and they don’t believe in sannyasis with female secretaries nonsense. Since I was banned, my website reached thousands of devotees who are now warned about Sacinandana so called Swami nonsense and his girlfriend. Whole ISKCON knows it. But, question remains, after being banned from coming to so called ISKCON temple in my home town of Zagreb, from which city do I have the most visitors on my website, let’s check Google analytics for last 30 days:
Yes, my website is visited over 500 times from the same city that I am “banned” from. It seems that Zagreb Ramesh authorities, inquisition squad led by Ishwara Pooree baba and Subarn bind baba is not doing their job properly. Devotees are interested more than ever to see the truth. Well, dear devotees of ISKCON Zagreb, you should follow your authorities and don’t visit my website, if you continue visiting my website, your devotional creeper will be destroyed because of reading offensive content. Actually, after 500 visits in last 30 days, I think that everybody’s bhakti lata is already destroyed. But don’t worry, any sannyasi with female secretary is powerful enough to revive your creeper. 😄 😄 😄
