We here at Chakra are committed to telling you the whole truth. We don't hide anything, although we have our own perspective, which is independent and not dictated to us by the GBC. At CHAKRA, although we are friends with the GBC, we only present our own views. We speak of our own free will.

Personally I joined ISKCON about 5 years earlier than Vipramukhya Swami, & stayed wholeheartedly for the next 12 years, so at least in one sense I have seniority.
The authors of CHAKRA appear to be involved in highly duplicitous activities which is unbrahminical to say the least.
|Miss CON- Guru
from Satyahit das
Jai Srila Prabhupada !!!
Vipramukya Swami is now residing at the Vancouver temple. One point about his "pro ISKCON guru set up", web site "Chakra".- He states at the beginning of the web site that it is not affiliated with ISKCON but is ISKCON friendly. For reference, I urge the reader to read the brief one sentence statement at the start of CHAKRA just under the header. Now, - Vipramukhya Swami is an initiating diksa guru within the fold of ISKCON. One does not get a lot higher on the scale within ISKCON unless they are also a member of the GBC or have been in the movement longer. (Personally I joined ISKCON about 5 years earlier than Vipramukhya Swami, & stayed wholeheartedly for the next 12 years, so at least in one sense I have seniority.)
Naturally without GBC permission he would not have created this web site, & neither would CHAKRA print anything even slightly opposed or different from the party lines of the GBC because they would immediately be chastised & stopped... Yet, CHAKRA, (Vipramukhya Swami), stresses the point that they are "independent" from ISKCON & voicing their own views freely..
Sometimes we hear of a government official losing his/her post or being chastised for business dealings such as land purchases or other "inside " types of deals unfairly taken advantage of by various political officials. There is a name for this type of actual criminal behaviour but it slips our mind. It points out a "conflict of interest". During the time of Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur, who was a circuit court judge under the British rule, several instances are historically pointed out wherein Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur strongly chastises ,opposes,& jails miscreants bewildering the common people by their mystic power or word jugglery. However today's Canadian government is not only clueless 100% in this regard, but also permits, allows & performs itself many highly gross, vicious, & sinful actions such as condoning animal slaughter just for starters.
ISKCON & its GBC have no spiritual overseer, as when Srila Prabhupada, the founder acharya was physically present, although many of Srila Prabhupada direct disciples, such as myself, who have given up all affiliation with ISKCON, due to its highly mistaken "guru" position, & its adulteration of Srila Prabhupadas books by the smiling Jayadwaita Swami ...
So in effect & in reality, CHAKRA's introductory statement of purpose, that they are independent of ISKCON & the GBC ,is a LIE, - is a non brahminical stance. Persons, devotees,&/or gurus employed by ISKCON such as Vipramukhya Swami are 100 % dependant on ISKCON for residence, employment, & foodstuffs. They are in fact employees of ISKCON & its GBC in no uncertain terms & have absolutely no independance whatsoever. If CHAKRA were to take a stance opposed to ISKCON's guru philosophy, devotees such as Vipramukhya Swami would be in big trouble with ISKCON's authoritative GBC & possibly even lose his guruship within ISKCON.
So, CHAKRA's main statement of purpose is filled with untruth. The statement of purpose is therefore a type of "double talk" & jugglery of words to give the impression that it is in fact independent of ISKCON when in actual fact CHAKRA is totally & 100% dependant & employed by ISKCON because its members are gurus or holding other positions within ISKCON & have absolutely no right to say anything contradictory to the GBCs rules, regulations, & statements.
Simply by CHAKRA's statement of purpose, & the ramifications discussed herein, the authors of CHAKRA appear to be involved in highly duplicitous activities which is unbrahminical to say the least.
This makes it difficult for new people coming to ISKCON to make advancement when the leaders are duplicitous & don't give the new devotees direct access to Srila Prabhupadas mercy by not letting them know that they can directly pray to Srila Prabhupada & be guided & protected by HIM because He is always fully present to those who are reading & studying His books & acknowledging His true position as shakta vesa avatar as were many of Lord Chaitanya's associates.
