We do offer free classes, so those who intend to join one should also consider joining the site. Thank you.
I have no doubt that Sri Krishna is the Supreme Godhead. I come from a Catholic upbringing but became interested in things Spiritual after a profound Near Death Experience at age 21. I joined and lived in an Esoteric Buddhist Ashram in Sydney at age 23. Studied, taught and lived in for most of 20s. We were not mayavadi. If through one's meditation and study one realised there is God the Supreme- then that is so.
After that I fell badly. Alcohol and drugs took hold. I am clean and sober now 24 years through AA and NA and the Grace of God.
Started being vegetarian again about 5 years ago. Was eating at Surfers Paradise Govindas restaurant. A worker there I befriended gave me a copy of BG As It Is. The second read of BG the penny dropped "this is really God talking". One night I was going to Govindas and I "heard" my Spiritual Master of old say very clearly " go to Prabhupada, he will teach you devotion." I couldn't refuse that recommendation.
I have a lot more history of course.
Simply- I have no doubt that Srila Prabhupada is a Great Acharya and is beyond reproach. I am appalled by what the demons have done to His legacy. I have been fortunate to have had close association with a Prabhupada Disciple (Brahspati Das) who filled me in and guided me through the nonsense on ISCKON.

PS
My former spiritual life as a Buddhist that knows God- we fought the Dark Brotherhood (demons, as SP names them). I see the fight against the fake swamis and leaders of ITSACON as the Good Fight.
Hare Krishna
Age / status of life? ie brahmacari/single, married, etc.
58 yo Pisces. Divorced. 4 daughters. Have some health issues.
Full Name, and please tell us a bit about yourself. Why are you here?
David Christian Todd.
I simply want to support your cause and learn more.
You may not ADVERTISE anyone other than Srila Prabhupada as potential spiritual master or for diksa on this site ~(>,' ) Agreed ?
Yes of course

ARE GURUS DEMONS?

1996/11/19



According to Srila Prabhupada the founder of ISKCON, the first principle of Krishna consciousness is to accept and worship a bona fide pure devotee guru [acharyopasana]. This eternal principle is not at all unlike the…

Diwali

The story goes that Hanuman was sent by Rama to Ayodhya the day before Rama's arrival as prearranged with Bharat to let the residents of Ayodhya know how Sita and Rama and all Their retinue were returning. This was five days before Diwali, and after the Vijaya dasami (victory of Rama ) celebration. THE STORY BEHIND "DIWALI" King Dashrath ruled the rich and prosperous city of Ayodhya. He had three wives and…See More

Looks to me like an organized well-thought out program to destroy Vedic culture.

Tamohara Dasa added; Hindus, so-called, fighting with each other over obscure and irrelevant religious issues instead of taking the yuga dharma under Mahaprabhu, Westernized biased anti-Hindu untrue history is taught to our children in the brainwash educational systems, IMF electronic currency scam / doing away with the freedom of use of money in favor of demon control is started in India, alliances made with the devil ie Israel, Moslems are encouraged to breed and take over, Hare Krsna…See More

"William Arz ; Srila Prabhupada: "So Kṛṣṇa has enemies. Arisudana. And He has to kill them. Kṛṣṇa has got two businesses: paritrāṇāya sādhūnāṁ vināśāya ca duṣkṛtam [Bg. 4.8]. Miscreants... They are miscreants. The demons who challenge Kṛṣṇa, who…"
