Thank you for the shocking description.
As follows from the letter, A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami clearly discouraged political activities as not being a simple method: chanting Hare Krishna, prasadam distibution, books distribution.

Incredible. Spectacular horror.
The fact that Curly Dave was asking Tusta Krishna about karma, while A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami was still present shows the hierarchy of relations in the context of authority.

To uderstand well:
"a part of his Krishna chanting group" or "apart of his Krishna chanting group"

$15K a year?
In a geopolitical sense, India may be attractive to the US as a lever, hence the establishment may be interested in Tulsi Gabbard, even if they know she follows her religion poorly. The question arises, whose political ambition it was - not parents, Gabbards?
> All Siddhaswarup's disciples and followers taking on the karma by assisting her.
Yes, it is strange, because it's easy to get to know about abortion or same-sex marriage in her political views, and in fact there is considerable enthusiasm among the members of former SIF Poland, not only former leaders / activists but also nice common members. The question, of course, is what's in it with punishment for billions of cows dying in slaughterhouses each year - formally in line with the philosophy responsibility falls to the king - 1/7. They didn't think too much.
> The general population and the young devotees thinking that Hindus accept abortion.
This is a big problem. It's not even a matter of public opinion that Hindus accept abortion. There are such activists in Poland as Sister Michaela, who will burden religion in general with the irreconcilable observance by followers of their religion. In the case of Sister Michaela Vaishnavism is blamed for Hindus' lack of mercy. I personally met this nun and she went so far as to attribute A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami's bad motives.
>I remember the lines in Siddhaswarup's album " This world an another world" >released in 1975- "there's room for the dog, the TV and the car the child who >is not born yet he makes my life too hard".
I remember we were told not to listen to it because it is not for devotees. In 90's.
>The devotees of Butler like to refer to "kala desa, patra" when it comes to Butler...
>"kala desa, patra; that is: time, place and circumstance"
>So if it serves Butler's needs and desires then it is ok due to this time and >place being Kali Yuga, and the circumstance is "everyone is against us"
Too many kala, too many desa, too many patra makes a habbit. Dominating rule. It was a problem to observe lack of morality or law breaking.
"everyone is against us" is a symptom of the besieged fortress syndrome. From my observation, the mechanism caused the party mentality factor. Action - reaction.
>Butler has been and is continuing to pull his own ideas out of his Guda and >calling it Gold.
You mean guda
>It is safe to say that AC baktivedanta rejected him,
Rama Ranson in one post stated that A.C. Bhaktivedanta swami forbade Siddhaswarupananda to practice the yoga-nidra technique, whatever it may be, as not part of the Vaisnava tradition. Is there any formal evidence for this? Letter? In Poland, the groups formed from the division of SIF Poland teach yoga-nidra.
