Kṛṣṇacandra Dāsa – Śrī Vṛndāvan Dham: The article “The Blues Swami” is very disturbing in many ways. Radhanatha Swami, by appearing in that raucous assembly of mayavadis, is not only representing his disciples, but; Śrīla Prabhupāda, ISKCON, the paramparā, Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu and all the previous Vaiṣṇava Ācāryas. It is incredulously impossible to believe that this event has been arranged to disseminate Bhāgavata Dharma when he stands before this audience clearly not as a Vaiṣṇava Guru but as a performer.
The manner in which Radhanatha Swami made love to his harmonica and was so lost in ‘jamming’ is indicative of this man’s actual level of consciousness. This video should dispel any doubt that this man is a charlatan to anyone of reasonable intellect or a neophyte level of Kṛṣṇa consciousness.
To his disciples he would be the equivalent of the Catholic Pope at a pagan assembly or to everyone else at least a Cardinal. How would the world of society of Catholics understand if they saw the Pope playing the Blues Harp to a group of pagans in such a low class rowdy atmosphere? Even if he was playing the Violin or the Cello it would be more cultured but he was not, he was playing a ‘blues harp’ which represents the parochial or working class section of a community, notwithstanding the fact that he was playing to an audience of non believers who by their crude uncouth vocalizations were more at home in a seedy Bar than a cultured assembly.
Should the Pope have performed in such an uncouth manner this may serve, to some, to make him appear more down to earth but in actual fact it demeans and degrades the higher standard of human behaviour and etiquette of a saintly personage?
However, by this singular act of debasement Radhanatha Swami displayed his contempt and disrespect for his status as a Sannyāsa and as a dīkṣā guru coming in the sacred order of the Vaiṣṇava paramparā.
When one watches this video, one may be moved by his adeptness at playing this instrument, an adeptness that can only be achieved by diligent practice that enabled him to perform at this skill level. The session would have also been well rehearsed as his timing was correct for each break which means that this performance was an absolutely intentional act and not an impromptu performance.
The way in which he made love to his Blues Harp can only be described as being an expression of his barely concealed lusty desires. Lusty desires that he so easily displayed in public. How else can one understand his action and performance? This was a public display of ‘making out’ with his harmonica which represented the object of his sexual attraction, whatever that may be…
A Sannyāsa, what to speak of a Vaiṣṇava, should necessarily be on the platform of spiritual consciousness and therefore they are not attached the objects of the senses which include the mind and its imaginings. For the Swami to lose himself in the sensual aspect of the music he is playing means that he has very little or no spiritual realization or platform from which to be conscious of the world around him. His fluency at playing the Blues Harp affords him the ability to lose himself in the music, and clearly shows that his consciousness is materially absorbed as opposed to spiritually. A spiritually absorbed personage will never lose themselves so vulgarly to such sensual pleasure.
This was also such a muci act to perform in public that it sickens one to behold. The amount of saliva that he would have drooled all over that instrument and his hands, would have been quite considerable. He used the same unwashed muci hands to embrace Miten and he then used those same muci hands to clasp Deva Premal’s hands, in his nauseatingly humble acknowledgment of his performance.
In this one single performance this little charlatan’s true level of consciousness is revealed to everyone. The cultured Indians of the world would be mortified to see such a flagrant act of disrespect to his cloth, his alleged guru His Divine Grace AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Śrīla Prabhupāda and to the Supreme Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa.
Only low class Indians whose minds have been polluted with a low class aspect of western culture will possibly see this as being cool. This would be the same for low class westerners who value such a degraded form of music and performance.
How is it possible to reconcile this blatant display of vulgarity with his status as a dīkṣā guru? How can his disciples explain this as being the activity of a self realized soul who has the ability to liberate the fallen conditioned souls of the kali-yuga? How can they accept that such a muci and crude act be divinely inspired?
It is obvious that they cannot for māyā has placed them into illusion and they are spellbound into believing that this little man, this charlatan, this New Age Kabbalistic Brahmavadi Spiritual Guru who plays the Blues on his Blues Harp is a śuddha bhakta and a divine representative of Kṛṣṇa when to everyone else he is a low class fool and cheater. Rabbinatha Swami Mudhapada!
They will rationalize this as being the unknowable activities of a pure devotee of the Lord and compromise their gut feeling that this is so wrong with the idea that they should never criticize the pure devotee of the Lord. How many times has this happened in the history of ISKCON?
The disciples of Bhavananda / Kirtanananda / Ramesvara / Hriskesa / Hrydayananda / the evil Tamal / Lokanath / Umapati so called swami’s are stark testament to how they were worshipped as pure devotees when they were all involved in demoniac activities.
Even Dandavats.com had posted this in their “Humor” section (see screenshot below) before it was removed as they must have understood that to post it in any section they would have to stand accused of supporting behaviour unbecoming of a representative of Śrīla Prabhupāda and Lord Kṛṣṇa and it would have demeaned their pukka status in the ISKCON society of FISKCONites and their apologists.
The fact that they posted it in their section on humour displays that they believed that this is where this performance belonged. In actual fact this is not humour, this is sinful behaviour and it should be the subject of a GBC investigation which should incur the full force of the so called ISKCON Law Book laws.
How much more does this little charlatan need to be exposed before our Society kicks this little man out? What will the GBC do now this evidence is made public? Probably the same as they did when Indradyumna Swami and his girls were exposed. NOTHING!!!
