Introduction Part 2.

One day when I visited Kundali in his room at the Gurukula Building; he explained to me about the project he was involved with after the departure of Srila Prabhupada.  He told me that Satsvarupa Goswami was going to write a book about Srila Prabhupada’s life in ISKCON; and it would be called “Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta” Apparently the plan was to send several devotees out to all the ISKCON centers, and interview Srila Prabhupada disciples and followers who had close and personal association with Srila Prabhupada..  The purpose was to record on tape, these devotee’s “remembrances” of Srila Prabhupada.  What is important, to know, in this regard; is that interviews were being sought from devotees who had direct contact with Srila Prabhupada. 

The tapes where then transcribed (typed with a typewriter) on 8 ½ by 10 paper).   I believe this transcribing effort was conducted in 1979 to 1980.   Remember, in those days there was no word processors what to speak of personal computers.  These typed manuscripts were coded at the top with a two-digit number that was an account of these remembrance in chronological order.  These two-digit number represented a specific period in time.  So, instead of trying to de-code these number of 81, 82, 83, 84, 85 and 86 and determine the dates in time they represent, I decided to just use the sequential number, and roll with that..  In this regard the manuscripts in my they do constitute Srila Prabhupada’s disciples and followers remembrances during the last 6 months of Srila Prabhupada life, on this planet Earth. 

Kundali continued to explain to me that Satsvarupa Goswami wrote the “Lilamrta” without incorporating any of these manuscripts.  He continued to explain to me that these manuscripts were then stored in sheet steel filing cabinets in one of the ISKCON temples on the Eastern side of the USA.  I do not recall, but it might have been in Philadelphia, does come in to my mind.  Kundali dasa was without a doubt the best lecturer, and writer in ISKCON.  That ability continued up to sometime before the year 2000 or 2001, when he disappeared, and little is known about his where about.  To prove this point, in the Web-site, all his works will be presented and you can judge for yourself.  Also, several times, when he gave a class at the Vrindavan Krishna and Balarama Temple, when he finished, all the devotee’s present, spontaneously gave a loud and lasting applauds.  This I have never ever witness during all my years as a member of ISKCON, 1972 to 1978 in Loa Angeles, and then from 1993 to 1999 in Vrindavan, after a lecture by any disciple of Srila Prabhupada. 

Kundali continued to explain that before he left the USA to move to Vrindavan India; he went to these filing cabinets and made copies of the documents coded with 81 to 86.  He said that these documents; he wanted to use in writing a book that he would call “Srila Prabhupada Antya-lila”, the life of Srila Prabhupada in the last 6 months on this Planet Earth.  A collection of remembrance by a wide variety of Srila Prabhupada disciples and followers who had personal communication and contact with his Divine Grace.  

At that time, we had 386 and 486 PC’s and we were running and early version of MS Windows and MS Word.  He asked me if I would kindly help him with this project by transcribing these typed documents on to MS Word documents.  I would then give these computer Word files to him and he could then use them in his effort to write the book.   This is where the intrigue begins.

Kundali explained that sometime after coping the manuscripts he desired; it just happened that a fire broke out in the small file room; and all these manuscripts were destroyed.  This is a fact that you might just keep in your mind.  Hence, these copies which he had in a metal trunk are the only surviving records of that big effort, by many devotes, to record and transcribe the remembrance of Srila Prabhupada by a wide range of disciples.  A question comes to my mind.  How can all the 8 ½ by 10 pieces of paper burn to ashes inside of a sheet steel filing cabinet?  How did a fire start in a file cabinet small room?  Why was the fire contained only in that small room?  The fire certainly could have not started inside any of the filing cabinets.  If the fire was contained to the small file cabinet room, how could it be possible for each of the filing cabinets catch fire inside and burn all the documents to ashes?  I am familiar with such cabinets, and a fire inside a small room, that was snuffed out before it could spread, would only at worst, singe the documents in the steel sheet file cabinets.  I will leave it at that.

The intrigue of the termination of the JIVAS project had a devastating effect on all its members.  By lata time I had only transcribe a small amount of these transcripts.  By the year 2000 we all went in different directions in our life’s.  Why you may ask?  Well to make a long story short; we were basically “ostracized out of ISKCON”. 

Ostracized — T o exclude, by general consent, from society, friendship, conversation, privileges, to banish (a person).  In ancient Greece) to banish (a citizen) temporarily by vote.

I had only transcribed, to computer files, about one-tenths of the type-writer manuscripts; but I had not yet delivered any of the computer MS  Word document files to Kundali.  What happened to Kundali is a sad story; which I will not tell due to my respect for him because of all the Krishna conscious knowledge I learned from him.  I am forever grateful because he taught me what I came to understand is the most important aspect of Srila Prabhupada teachings.  Therefore, I ended up possessing these transcripts which I will use to produce this book myself.  These original documents have been stored for safe keeping; so, speak.  In addition, they are proof of the content of this book, and they are stored in a very safe place where they cannot be burned to ashes.

It is sometime in 1994 and I am transcribing these manuscripts.  At one point in this process; I came to a terrifying realization after transcribing one devotee’s remembrance.  I printed out a copy of this document, and took it first to my godbrother Kurma-rupa Dasa (another member of the JIVAS project).  I expressed my conclusion to him and then I said to him,

“Prabhu!  Please read this transcription and tell me if you come to the same conclusion I have just expressed to you?” 

He read it in front of me; which took a while for it was 30 pages long.  His face stared to a show sign of astonishment, and non-belief.  When he finished, he turned his head and looked at me and said in a rather sad and serious voice, 

“Yes!  I agree with you”. 

I did the same with Kundali Dasa and he also said that he came to the same conclusion.

Now I will tell you what that conclusion or realization is:

Please note that, at that time, there had never been any rumor or mention by anyone of such a thing.  It was un-imaginable.

“Srila Prabhupada was poisoned!”.  ☠️ Skull and Crossbones Emoji — Meaning, Copy & Paste 

I shared this document and my conclusion with several of my close God brothers in Vrindavan.  Yep!  Somehow or another; I believe, that somehow or another, this was the beginning of the “Poison Rumor”.  Vrindavan has the Kartika festival in the Fall; and many thousands of devotees attend.  Hence, there is the possibility for rumors to spread to the remainder of the ISKCON world.  Many years later a God brother, forgotten his name, contacted me by e-mail sometime around 2004 or 2005.  He claimed the he was investigating this “Poison Theory” and had come to know that I had these copies of the manuscripts that were remembrances of Srila Prabhupada during the last months of his life.  He asked me if he could have copies of them.  I told him that I would think about it; and would contact him later.  That never happened because I decided straight away not to provide him with these documents because I was going to produce a book of Srila Prabhupada last months on this planet Earth.  Moreover, I did not know who this devotee was, never heard of him, and I had a feeling that I could not trust him.  I never replied to him, and I never heard from him also.

Now it is November 2021, and I have a good feeling that I will have finished this book by the end of the year.  Most of these documents l requires “transcription to Word Document files.  It is very laborious to do this by putting the document next to me on my desk and copy it by typing on MS Word.  Lucky for me that all this time has gone by without completing this aspect of the project.  I now have the assistance of Bhakta-Abbyy-Fine-Reader, which is a powerfully piece of a software tool..  All I must do know is scan these documents in to a scan file format on to my computer, and this software program will produce a MS Word document for me in a matter of a minute or so.. 

At this time, I will launch, by the early 2022,, a web-site and this book will be available to read on-line or download in several formats and media.  I hope you enjoy reading this book and I will leave it to your own scrutiny, inspection, examination, and analysis.   I will surely wonder if you also come to the same conclusion

Besides this aspect of the book; it is otherwise full of great and wonderful remembrances; that unquestionably come under the category of Srila Prabhupada “NECTAR”.  Most of what happened during the last months of Srila Prabhupada life was told or written about by senior ISKCON authorities.  Never were we told that these transcripts existed.  The questions I ask and needs answers are:

  • Why did Satsvarupa Goswami not use these transcripts in producing the “Srila Prabhupada Lilamrta”??? 
  • And even more mysteriously; is it not strange that a small file room, at a ISKCON temple, burn out on the inside; causing only extensive damage to the inside of the steel file cabinets ONLY???
  • How could a fire, in such a small room, start???
  • And even more mysteriously; even if there was a fire inside this file room.  How could all the contents in “steel sheet” filing cabinet be completely destroyed/consumed into ashes?  Would not the filing cabinet give some protection and only leave charred on the edges documents???
  • And how could a small fire that did not spread to the rest of the temple complex just burn inside the small file room, consume everything inside the filing cabinets and then die out and not spread to the remainder of the building???

These events make no sense to me; but the transcripts of these normal, ordinary Srila Prabhupada disciples make a whole lot of sense; and especially the one that led me to my conclusion.  So now you can have the opportunity to read or hear for yourself from this wide range of Srila Prabhupada disciples; what they remember about associating with or being around him.  With this book, you will get the best, and unsurpassed understanding of Srila Prabhupada’s last months on this planet Earth; and especially the last month which is the most disturbing.
