On the left half of the Website Contents Page, is entitled “9 Featured Presentations”. These presentations are the reason for the resurrection of this Website, which stopped functioning in the summer of 2005, and was taken off the internet in 2013. This resurrection is meant to facilitate the organization of, un-organized persons, websites, and other entities which have propped up on the internet, in the last 45 years, and which tried to deal with the disappearance of Srila Prabhupada, in one way or another.
The First 4 Presentations are;
- A Treatise “Moving Forward” A Case for the Reconstitution of Srila Prabhupada’s Mission?
- Srila Prabhupada Antya-lila: The Last Six Months, Was He Systematically Poisoned?
- What Is The Eternal, Constitutional Function Of The Soul? Compiled From Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s Jaiva-dharma (1896), without the Thakur’s Novel and Stories.
Number 1 is a first Edition, and more than likely, will change in the next few years, for its contents are ment to be dynamic, in order to accommodate like0minded devotees, and time, place, and circumstance. It is more or less book size, (350 plus pages of MS Word Document), but has been broken down into Five Sections, containing 96 Segments in total. Segments 1 to 92 have been completed, and Segments 93 to 96, are yet to be written. The plan is that they will be completed sometime in the latter half of 2022.
It is expected, that once you start reading the Treatise “Moving Forward”, as you read each Segment, you will be stimulating to say something, speak your mind, so to speak; and your comments, questions, and thoughts will be very much welcomed.
Number 2 and 3 are only partially complete, and will be finished sometime in the latter half of 2022, as well.
Number 2 is very special, and you will read, never before published testimony, of mostly rank-and-file Srila Prabhupada disciples, recounting their personal association and experience with Srila Prabhupada during his last 6 months on this Planet Earth. Many wonderful pastimes associating with Srila Prabhupada; and the tragic events leading up to his last breath of Earth’s atmosphere, in Vrindavana. These interviews were supposed to be used in the writing of the book Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta. The writer, being one of the 11 unscrupulous Srila Prabhupada disciples, who hi-jacked Srila Prabhupada’s mission to facilitate their own and collect personal vested interest, did not use any of these transcribed interviews in writing the Lilamrta; he only relied on his personal dairy.
The facilitator of this Website has possession of these typed transcriptions, which have a very interesting story, that you can read in the Introduction to this presentation.
Number 3, is The Nature & Constitutional Position of the Jiva/Soul: Compiled From Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s Jaiva-dharma (1896), without the Thakur’s Novel & Stories, which he used as a vehicle, to convey to the Population of India at of the 1800’s, the Gaudiya Vaisnavas philosophy, and superlative knowledge regarding the nature of the human soul. It is only the first 25 chapters, because after that, it is my understanding that one should not read further without proper qualification. This presentation is suitable for anyone who has not achieved the perfection of chanting the holy names of Krishna. After reading this presentation, you will come to understand that further chapters are meant only for those who chant the holy name purely, without committing any of the 10 offences to chanting the holy names of Krishna.
Presentation Number 4, is the famous book that addressed “The Origin of the Jiva Controversy”, that occurred in ISKCON Vrindavana in 1996
- In Vaikuntha Not Even the Leaves Fall.
Finally, the remaining 5 presentations, Numbers 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9, are the integral components, of a body of works originally written in the mid-1990’s in Vrindavana India, and which was known, in the original version of the Saragrahi.org website as, “Aspects of Vaisnava Theory and Practice”. These works deal with, explain and give information on two aspects.
“What Happened to ISKCON, and Why.”
“How to Prevent it From Happening Again.”
These 5 are entitled:
- Raising Our Spiritual Standards
- Varieties of Dysfunctional Experience.
- Faith, the Analytical Mind, and the Uttama Adhikari.
- The Heart of Reform.
- A Treatise on The “Three Modes of Material Nature”
