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.

It appears that there may be an additional history that Bahudaka didn't
mention in his letter. This was just reported by Bhurijana Prabh
from Vrindavan, and reached CHAKRA
only minutes ago. Please note Bahudak Prabhu has now
Bhurijana Prabhu says:
- One of abusers from Vancouver that Bahudaka mentions was sent by the
Vancouver temple as a teacher. His name was Sastra. He was sent with the Gurukula-age boys
from Vancouver in the early '80's, perhaps in 1984. Before being sent to Vrindaban, Sastra
had commited abuse while acting as the asrama teacher in Vancouver, while Bahudaka was in
charge of the Vancouver temple. When he was sent as a teacher to Vrindaban, although to my
knowledge the Vancouver authorities were at least somewhat aware of his misdeeds, the
Vrindaban school was not informed.
- Sastra, after some time, eventually made an attempt to abuse an older
student in Vrindaban, and he was removed and sent back to Vancouver. The Vancouver
authorities were informed, and yet Sastra was again made the asrama teacher in Vancouver!
Bahudaka even allowed the fellow to marry his oldest daughter! When Sastra again abused a
boy in Vancouver, he was finally kicked out. Later, as told by Bahudaka, his own children
brought charges against the fellow.
Note: Here at CHAKRA we certainly do not think Bahudaka
Prabhu is concealing any information. Our impression of Bahudaka is that he is a very nice
devotee trying to return to the association of devotees. We personally accept his letter
as valid and truthful.
