Quote "Vera City-The servants life is one of waiting for a morsel off the guru's plate and the rare, periodic smile or lei. A flower lei worshipped and kept by the celibate bed until all dry and withered, like their lives."
Very true and so to remind every one of the futility of following this lunatic let us revist a page from the past.
This is something Vera City posted on Jun 14 2008: "The reason CB (Chris Butler) had such a hard time getting anyone to volunteer for the job is that everyone in Hawaii knew what it would entail. You had to have any bit of self-esteem and critical thinking skills you might have left between your legs – no, castrated, and be willing to be kicked like a dog. You might get paid, but subsistence wages only. You would be on call 24/7 and need to tolerate CB’s rages and his deceptively sweet wife’s demands. If you had a family, they had better be independent financially and you would rarely see them. Krishna Katha das (now Senator Gabbard) finally accepted the job, only to be fired shortly thereafter. "
Please everyone go back to this page and take a look- this is the real cult of Chris Butler:
Remember how all these insane missives were written by Prema Dasi? Do we all remember the dreaded Prema Dasi?
Again from Vera City posted on that same day ( Thank You Vera- post more!! ):
[size=large]"Who in their fucking right mind would apply!?
CB would often use the tactic, "Why be here?" and threaten to "leave the planet" and thus condemn the spiritual lives of his followers forever! Such salvationist threats were his constant MO. We should have taken his bluff! LOL!
Also, using CB's health as a rod over everyone's head is another cult tactic used in this letter. Remember, we were told that if guru gets sick, it is our fault because he is taking on all of our sins for us! I'd be laughing now, but it is no laughing matter for those people duped into believing it. But, I don't give a shit about the people who knowingly propagate these lies.
The paranoia about germs is very evident in this memo as well. The hotel rooms that CB was being shuffled around to were not shabby residences to say the least!
Prema dasi, who signed this letter was CB's secretary at the time. She always reminded me of Rosa Kleb, the James Bond villian in "From Russian With Love". We used to call her "Prima donna devi dasi" behind her back. She was incredibly rude and officious to everyone, but she did her job for CB well. Totally brain warped and alienated from her family who spent a lot of money sending her to a top university. She was one of the few followers with a college degree. I hope she found her way out of the cult and became human again."[/size]
Well, according to other ex-ers - in a word - NO. She is still with the inner circle. When we all compared notes it turns out that all of them are living relatively close to each other and of course within running distance of the bogi yogi himself, Chris Butler. That is to say near Lanikai. An area of very very expensive homes indeed. In fact most of the inner circle is still very much into being the slaves and sycophants and no one has left. Their humanity remains elusive and their lives have become dry and withered as Vera City states.
So all the people who are being duped into supporting the rich and lavish lifestyle of this bogi yogi- if they only knew where all these people lived and in what wealth this false guru is being kept, you think they would wake up and flee. Elsewhere in this thread it was written that ACB did not approve of the way Butler was carrying on. And it was reported that Butler and David Munncie (Tusta Das) had stolen money from ACB. Now I say to the inner circle, don't you remember that Butler told you NOT to read anything witten by ISKCON after a certain year? Remember that order/orders? Don't you realize why?
Because you would have enountered all the things that Butler had done wrong and had been criticized for- the things he did not want you all to find out about. The things that prove he is bogus and not true Vaishnava or guru. You would have read about all the drug usage in the early years setting the stage for his insanity and the illicit and immoral affair he had with this first secretary and I think he had to do something about that, (someone here remind me) so that his NEXT secretary had to be of a certain "type" shall we say, something more along the lines of a "college" educated?? mindless robotic, visually non-existant non-entity with the ferociousness of a guard dog, if you know what I mean. You would have discovered that in fact ACB did not approve of him or his ways at all. You had to remain ignorant of the truth. Butler took this arcane and antiquated religion from India and turned it around to make it work for HIS OWN BENEFIT, throwing in the flowery and poetic phrases and then came the threats and the mind control. Go to India and read the true scriptures of the Vedas, speak with the real Vaishnavas- they will laugh at your bogi yogi for they see the deception and the misery this man has caused and continues to cause.
