Sacinandana Swami in Birmingham

Dear participants of Birmingham 24 hour kirtan,

my name is Hanuman das, and came to know that you are organizing festival where one of main guests will be Sacinandana Swami.

Here is the link to the facebook page:

Over the last year, I discovered many surprising facts about Sacinandana Swami. Any person who have any idea about Krishna consciousness knows that we should hear philosophy and chanting of the Holly name from the lips of a pure devotee. In the ISKCON context, that means we need to associate with people who are 100% loyal to Srila Prabhupada and are following him in exemplary way.

In the documentary movies I made so far, there are big doubts are Sacinandana Swami’s loyalty to Srila Prabhupada and there are big doubts over some of his activities.

Three primary problems with Sacinandana Swami are: His connection to Ramesh baba and his relationship with his female secretary Bhanu Nandini which is going on for the last 10 years.

Ramesh baba

Before making any of those documentary movies, I wrote a letter to Sacinandana Swami, asking him if he is follower of Ramesh baba. He never replied to this letter. That gave further impetus to investigate. Because, if I were Srila Prabhupada’s disciple and some nonsense person accusess me for being follower of Ramesh baba, I would definitely reply.

As far a video evidence, there is plenty, here is a an half hour long video where Sacinandana Swami and Ramesh baba discuss bhava. Is there any need for this? Srila Prabhupada’s teachings are not good enough?

Furthermore, Sacinandana Swami disciples are bringing Ramesh baba followers to Europe to play their sahajiya bhajans. Brajraj Sharan, most prominent follower of Ramesh baba was already in Croatia twice. After I found out about this tour, I recorded my first video:


After disciples of Sacinandana Swami saw that all hidden truths about their guru are out in the open, they tried to persuade me to remove all the evidence from the Internet, and only if I remove all evidence, will I be allowed to come to the local temple.

However, protecting Srila Prabhupada’s movement from sahajiyas is my primary mission, therefore I recorded my next video, which had even more evidence against Sacinandana Swami:

The female secretary

We might ask ourselves why Sacinadana Swami is so fond of Ramesh baba? Because Ramesh baba is very lax in his relationship with opposite sex, and he organises disco dance where young women dance whole night. This fits Sacinandana Swami perfectly, because he is much younger female secretary with who he travels around the world:

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)

ISKCON authorities

We could ask ourselves, why ISKCON authorities are allowing us to have such questionable sannyasis in our movement? Why didn’t they deal with Sacinandana Swami? Plain answer to this question is that most prominent guru in ISKCON, Radhanath Swami, is “a very good friend” of Ramesh baba, and he will not allow that anything happens to Sacinandana Swami.

Another argument, is that based on Srila Prabhupada’s teachings, we should develop spiritual knowledge if we want to have ability to discriminate between genuine devotees and sahajiyas. If we are lazy, and we want to GBC does all the thinking instead of us, we will be cheated.

Third argument is that Sacinandana Swami has heaps of foolish followers, and removing him from ISKCON is risky, he could potentially take all his followers with him and form a separate society.


Please study all the evidence I provided above, and make a decision if you will attend Sacinandana Swami programs taking into consideration following quote:

One has to hear the message of Godhead from the lips of the pure devotee of the Lord or Acarya. The religion is originally spoken by Krsna Himself and that message or science is coming down directly through the chain of disciplic succession and one who is in that chain is called acarya or one who teaches by his life. Religion is practically presented by the bonafide spiritual master or acarya. (Srila Prabhupada Letter, October 6, 1970)

Even if you think that “one who teaches by his life” associates with Ramesh baba and has a female secretary, I still wish you good luck, I’ve done my part by warning you.
