The Straw that Broke The Back of my
Opinion of CHAKRA
By Vraja Kishor das
VNN Finally Offline," an article written and rushed to
publication by Pujyapad Vipramukhya Swami, was the straw that broke the
back of my opinion of oldchakra.com.
Vipramukhya Swami's apparent gloating over the technical distress of VNN
is childish, and clearly expresses the enmity he harbors towards that
site. Krishna indicates in the Gita that one who becomes happy because of
another person's distress is bewildered by the dark mode of nature.
Prahlad Maharaja indicates in Bhagavatam that he or she who sees one
person as a friend and another as an enemy is bewildered by illusion.
Vipramukhya Swami describes VNN as "anti-ISKCON, pro-Gaudiya
Math," thus ascribing villainy and evil to VNN and, more importantly,
to the undefined terms "anti-ISKCON" and "pro-Gaudiya
Math." He thus insults the many persons who participate in VNN, the
many persons who are not official members of ISKCON, and the many persons
who participate in the Gaudiya Math.
make enough aparadh all by myself. Indeed, my myriad of expert aparadh
makes these statements of Pujyapad Vipramukhya Swami seem quite tame.
However, I respectfully recommend that Pujyapad Vipramukhya Swami
apologize at length and with humble tact. Although it is not of much
consequence, I will not publish any more articles on Chakra untill I feel
that the webmaster is bettered, either by himself or by another.
also find it odd that my reply to Dravida Prabhu regarding his
ill-conceived article about Narayan Maharaj does not show up with his
article on the "Narayan-Maharaj-Page," but has been relegated to
the obscure miscellany of the "letters page." Chakra's sectarian
attitude towards Narayan Maharaj has also been a cause of repulsion for
already have an article in line for publication in reply to Krishna
Avatar's article regarding Dhanurdhar Swami. I apologize to Krishna
Avatar, but I request the editors of Chakra not to publish that article,
as I no longer wish to be connected with the site.
also apologize to anyone who may have kindly and generously appreciated my
articles on Chakra. I will continue to post them on VNN. I also apologize
to the friends I have made at Chakra, and hope our friendship will
Go to the VNN
