Dear Prahladananda Swami, please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. Thank you for your reply.
I think it is in best interest of all members of our society that sannyasis live a very open and public life. Sannyasi should not have private life. Sannyasi should not live is a situation where nobody knows with whom he is living. Right? Sannyasi should not have any dark secrets. So, I asked Sacinandana Swami 5 times if he is living with girlfriend or not. I am not getting any reply.
So, now, I am asking you, as sannyas minister, if Sacinandana Swami is living with girlfriend or not? I am following chain of authorities.
We have many junior devotees in this movement, and majority of them will soon select their spiritual master, it think it is fair to inform them upfront if their future spiritual master is having girlfriend or not. In my investigation of Sacinandana Swami, I have covered years up to 2005, I see that many of his disciples left devotional service or rejected him as spiritual master after they found that he has a girlfriend. We definitely want to avoiding sending junior devotees down this road. Let’s not keep junior devotees in the dark. It’s a serious matter.
You are also requesting evidence from me which is consistent, sufficient, comprehensive and credible. I am not member of your ministry, why would I provide you with evidence? Evidence can be obtained only by you through impartial investigation, since Sacinandana Swami will probably take you more seriously than me.
Now, what I can provide you with, is information which raises “reasonable doubt” in the lifestyle of Sacinandana Swami and his girlfriend. Since this “reasonable doubt” appeared in my mind, I want to know if Sacinandana Swami is living with his girlfriend or not.
Reasonable doubt 1: Love photos
In the end of 2014, anonymous website published 11 photos of Sacinandana Swami and Bhanu nandini.
By itself, this doesn’t prove much, but it raises slight doubt.
Reasonable doubt 2: Serbian summer camp meeting
Two or three years ago, you met with Sacinandana Swami on serbian camp, and based on previous problems, you told him to cut down girlfriend association which he promised he will. I wish to thank Lord Krishna that he invented spies. So, this is not first time that we are having problems with Sacinandana Swami and Bhanu Nandini, GBC is not allowing them to live in the same place if I remember correctly.
Reasonable doubt 3: They still live in same city
After all this problems, meeting and promises, one should expect he sent her to the land far, far away in order to keep his sannyasi dignity. Nope, they both live in Berlin. They are both on this video in Berlin from March of this year, she turns her head at 0:30, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yScfgIpsJU8 There are much more evidence on internet that she is actually living in Berlin.
Reasonable doubt 4. Protected witness from Berlin:
Statement given to me over chat few days ago from a devotee living in Berlin, where he claims that Sacinandana Swami and Bhanu Nandini live together in villa on the lake, south west of Berlin. Villa is called Gaura-bhavan soon to be renamed to scandal-bhavan:
“Bhanu-nandini still lives there, but there is always another man (probably Madhusudana), but Bhanu-nandini handles all of SNS’s communication. This is actually public knowledge and everyone will experience that you need to call or write her to get an appointment. She reads and writes all his emails. So probably Bhanu-nandini has read your open letters to him first before he got knowledge of them”
And another message, if Sacinandana Swami doesn’t know how to operate mobile phone or email, that suggests that there are in physical contact every day: “He does not know how to handle emails or mobile phones, that is why he makes her do it. Someone needs to try to make an appointment with him, it will go through her. “
Reasonable doubt 5: Sacinandana Swami silence
Now, ok, let’s say guy from Berlin is envious because he has ugly girlfriend, and wants to frame Sacinandana Swami. Let’s say that actually, Bhanu Nandini is living in the other part of the city. But then, why am I not getting any response from Sacinandana Swami when I make serious allegation against him in front of 15 of his Godbrothers? My doubt levels are going to explode. If she is really not living with him, what is the problem in addressing my doubt?
Reasonable doubt 6: Sacinandana Swami disciple’s silence
When someone attacks your guru with stupid claim which is not true, the duty of a disciple is to defend guru and establish proper siddhanta. Now, whenever I post something on my wall regarding sannyasi-girlfriend tattva, within 24 hours, 200 devotees read this post. Amongst them, many are Sacinandana Swami disciples, I even invite them to defend their guru. What do I get in response, absolute silence. Although they believe their guru is gopi who is assisted by manjari Bhanu Nandini, they are still not so fallen that they will publicly lie to defend their guru. So, they all know it’s true. You can look at my facebook profile, and find me a single Sacinandana disciple defending his guru.
Reasonable doubt 7: We are all gopis anyway
Sacinandana Swami is follower of Ramesh baba, sahajiya from Vrindavan, and Ramesh baba has 50 new girlfriends each evening, who dance for him. So what is problem in having one girlfriend? That is actually sign of humbleness. In this video, I reveal evidence that Sacinandana Swami is follower of Ramesh baba:
Does this make sense? So, where is Bhanu Nandini living for the last 3 years? Can you give me address?
If you do small investigation now and give me answer, that will be smartest way to resolve the situation. And also, if Sacinandana Swami is genuine sannyasi who is not associating with his girlfriend privately, you immediately proved that I am vaisnava aparadhi. Would one week be a fair period to complete this chota investigation?
And you are right about one thing, if you think that devotees of this movement are not entitled to know if Sacinandana Swami has a girlfriend or not, then I will ask Sesa prabhu, GBC EC chairman. I will ask him why Sacinandana Swami is allowed to live with his girlfriend, if Sesa prabhu will not give me answer, then I will create scandal of epic proportions. That’s why we have sannyasa ministry, to avoid having scandals of epic proportions.
your servant, Hanuman das
