If you ever decide to come and live in ISKCON Zagreb, a wonderful Ramesh community, there are couple of simple rules you need to follow unless you want to get yourself banned.
Temple management will go that far that they will even look what are you posting on your Facebook wall. If you post wrong video, you can get yourself banned.
So, first of all, never attack Ramesh baba, he is ISKCON Zagreb sacred figure, and second, never make videos about Sacinandana Swami’s connection with Ramesh baba. Even if you publish evidence which is true, you will still be banned. ISKCON Zagreb doesn’t tolerate truth if it hurts their beloved gurudeva Sacinandana Swami. They couldn’t care less about the truth, they will ban everything, just to be on the safe side. So, I got banned because of this video:
Details and evidence on my ban, you can read in my previous post.
Now, we also need to show you positive example of videos which will not get you banned. Videos which you can post without any consequences.
This is the video posted by one of our esteemed members Filip Čargonja, aka Gour Govinda SNS. He is in the internal Ramesh circle, means very advanced, he is so advanced that he allowed Brajraj Sharan, Ramesh baba’s prominent follower to stay in his apartment while he was on his “preaching tour” in Croatia in 2016. Yes, you heard well, Sacinandana Swami’s followers are organizing preaching tours for Ramesh followers. Who cares for Prabhupada these days? Filip is also pro gay because his brother is gay, and because of that we all need to be pro gay. I guess this video is supposed to tilt us slightly to that direction. There is a certain bad vibe produced if you are homophobic, and there was one old grandpa who was homophobic, but more on that later. Here is the screenshot I took from his facebook profile:
If you are wondering which video that is, you can see it below, although I don’t recommend it. Video is too advanced for most of us, especially orange guys brahmacaris and sannyasis, who are still on the beginning levels of avoiding association with opposite sex:
To save you from watching the whole video, I will show you only glimpses from this very advanced video which will not get you banned in ISKCON Zagreb if you share it on your wall. First we have one soul, and she has emotional need to say to the Lord, “I don’t care”, but Krishna cares for her, that is the point, Krishna cares for all living entities.
Then she also has big emotional need to show her leg to all of us, and we should be interested to see her leg, I am still having problems understanding why any member of ISKCON would share videos containing female leg, but anyway, I will remain humble and this will gradually be revealed to me. Temple board surely knows why, since they didn’t ban Filip from temple.
Then, we also have some gay love, which is necessary to understand how to go beyond bodily level of consciousness. Old grandpa which I mentioned at the begging, and who is no longer relevant to Ramesh followers, he said:
My Dear Lalitananda dasa,
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated May 13rd, 1975 and have noted the contents. I am very sorry that you have taken to homosex. It will not help you advance in your attempt for spiritual life. In fact, it will only hamper your advancement. I do not know why you have taken to such abominable activities. What can I say? Anyway, try to render whatever service you can to Krishna. Even though you are in a very degraded condition Krishna, being pleased with your service attitude, can pick you up from your fallen state. You should stop this homosex immediately. It is illicit sex, otherwise, your chances of advancing in spiritual life are nil. Show Krishna you are serious, if you are.
I hope this meets you in good health.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami (letter May 26th, 1975)
So, this is it folks, posting female legs, gays and other nonsense will never get you banned in ISKCON Zagreb, because you fulfilled all the demands required by ISKCON Zagreb temple board, namely not attacking beloved Ramesh baba, and not posting any true information about Sacinandana Swami.
So, in case you have any doubts about this kind of Ramesh-gay-sahajiya-western mix, let me show you cover photo from Filip aka Gour Govinda SNS, it will show how everything is transcendental:
If you have any proof whatsoever that some kind of injustice have been done here, protector of Croatian yatra, Prahladananda Swami is eagerly waiting for your evidence, he will make sure that you understand what needs to be banned and what needs to be allowed:
