Another ISKCON Guru Establishes
Demigod Worship in ISKCON


Back To Prabhupada, Issue 19, Spring 2008, Quotes, Notes & News

Thus far, BTP has reported on demigod worship being conducted in ISKCON Abentheur in Germany; the ISKCON farm in Hungary; and ISKCON Zurich in Switzerland. To this can now be added the ISKCON temple in Ujjain, India, the fiefdom of HH Bhakti Charu Swami (“BCS”), as the photographs above, taken on the date of the Shiva-ratri festival, illustrate.

On page 10 of this issue, we read Srila Prabhupada’s crystal clear instructions about conducting demigod worship in ISKCON: it should not be done. This latest incident is simply another confirmation that following Srila Prabhupada’s ejection as the Guru of his own movement, the organisation today claiming to be ISKCON has continued to deviate from Srila Prabhupada’s directives in all respects.

Another gross example of this deviation, again by BCS, is his desire to turn ISKCON into a mundane business enterprise. He recently held Vedic yajnas and puja for the ground-breaking ceremony for an IT Park he is planning to build. The details, as given on his website, are:

“The IT Park will be the highest building in Madhya Pradesh consisting of 15 stories and be twin towers. 2 floors of shopping mall, and 12 stories of exclusive IT Offices, conference rooms, state of the art auditorium and stereoscopic planetarium […] it will also host IT related setups like a 3D animation studio, an animation school, advanced software base, a training school, a call centre, and research and development. Plus a TV channel broadcasting 24 hours a day all over the world!”
