Now we come to the vastly unknown fact that the group that we refer to presently as “GBC” is not actually a GBC at all. 1993 was the last year ISKCON had its GBC, when this group left ISKCON altogether, and began their own group, a private corporation based out of India: “The GBC Society of West Bengal”. This group is not actually the Governing Board Commission, founded by Srila Prabhupada in the Direction of Management of 1970, but a “GBC” in name only: They are not related to ISKCON at all.
One would think that the “GBC Society of West Bengal” would be the GBC in West Bengal, or India. However, the fact is that ALL of the “GBC” in the world, belong to that society, a society that exists outside of ISKCON; just as the Vatican, although it is in a foreign land, (Vatican City, actually Italy), rules the Catholic Churches that are situated in every country around the world.
The “GBC Society of West Bengal” took on the title of “Ultimate Ecclesiastical Authority” of ISKCON, with their “eyes wide open”, with keen or complete knowledge, awareness, or expectations,. Soon you will see the actual Bylaws of this new corporation in India.
The GBC had observed how the Catholic Church in Los Angeles, was able to prevent the law enforcement, from accessing their records concerning the abuse of children, due to the fact that their “ecclesiastical” status allowed them to exist, to a surprising degree, outside of the American legal system, which lacks the power to seize their records.
All the ISKCON Temples in the world are currently under the “GBC Society of West Bengal”, just as the Catholic Church is “ruled” from Rome by the Pope and his Cardinals.
It remains to be seen, if this unelected GBC, who “outsourced” themselves, to avoid prosecution for present and future crimes; can actually maintain the sham of actually being an “ecclesiastical body” in the same manner as the Catholic Church. The attorneys setting up this status for the “GBC Society of West Bengal”, warned them that if it could be proved, even in one instance, that they did NOT have an actual “ecclesiastical”, (of or relating to a church especially as an established institution), structure; their whole “house of cards” could come crashing down on them; because law enforcement would have full access to their hidden records. In this regard, the legal definition of “church”, is “a building used for public Christian worship.”
This is the game that is being played, and it is being played on such a high level within the artificial hierarchy of the present non-elected GBC, that practically no one is aware of what is going on.
In the United States, practically all of the Temple presidents, (a few refused), were forced to sign an Oath of Allegiance to the “GBC Society of West Bengal”, using the exact language that Srila Prabhupada formulated for an Oath of Allegiance, which He forced all the GBCs to sign in 1976, to prevent their “out and out” rebellion against Him.
Apparently,, very few Temples outside of the United States have been made to sign the Oath of Allegiance to the West Bengal GBC Society, but certainly that must be their very next goal, although some individual disciples, of the bogus gurus, have been forced to sign.
If you read the Bylaws of the “West Bengal GBC Society”, you will see for yourself how they have made an “end run”, (using evasive tactics or maneuvers), on any authority that may remain in ISKCON, that was manifested by Srila Prabhupada in ISKCON.
The “GBC Society of West Bengal”, have declared themselves to be a secret society, and they have rules and bylaws of their own, which are not available for any devotees or Temple presidents to see.
This leads us to the conclusion that ISKCON, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, does not have a GBC at all, but is the subject of a group artificially referring to themselves as “GBC”, who are actually nothing more than people who were once initiated followers of Srila Prabhupada, but who now unauthorizedly control his ISKCON Movement, and utilize their stolen power, in order to enact changes, such as Book modifications, property transfers, Kirtan Melody replacement, and deviant worship standards), that have zero approval from Srila Prabhupada.
These bylaws, drafted by Armarendra Dasa, (David Liberman), in 2009 (See Appendix-A), declares the GBC, to be an independent corporation based in West Bengal India, and declares the GBC, to be the “Ultimate Ecclesiastical Authority” in ISKCON, and that all of ISKCON’s assets belong to that GBC.
Since these bylaws are lengthy, they have been placed in an Appendix. at the end of this Treatise It is suggested that this Appendix be read and its contents be noted.
