can Madhu Pandit dedicate the recognition for this mundane karmi award
to Srila Prabhupada? Feeding
the hungry and "leading the cause of education among the government
school children" is not Prabhupada's (or Lord Chaitanya's) mission.
Bhaktisiddhanta spoke strongly against Vaisnava
devotees getting involved with these social "welfare" programs and
Prabhupada described government schools as "slaughterhouses". And why is
Pandit presenting Prabhupada as "a true visionary who wanted to see a
hunger free world"? This is totally mis-representing Prabhupada to the
public as a mundane social-worker. This is bogus and offensive.
Prabhupada actually says that a hunger free world is not possible.:
years ago, when I first came to Bombay, at that time I was grhastha. I
saw there were persons lying down care of footpath, and fifty years
after, we are seeing the same thing is going on. No change. There is a
class of men who must lie down care of footpath. There are so many
institutions, daridra-narayana-seva. But why there are daridras still?
That means you cannot change. It is not possible. It is not possible.
Just like a man who has done something criminal and he is in prison. Can
you take him out? It will be another criminal action. If you try to
take him away from the prison house by some means, then you’ll be
punished and he’ll be punished, both. This is the law state. Similarly,
how you can surpass the stringent laws of nature and the laws of God?
That is not possible.” (Bhagavad Gita 13.21 lecture)
the Bhagavad-gītā we don't find anywhere a single line that "You raise
funds for," I mean to say, "giving relief to the poor" or "to the
suffering." Is there any instruction in Bhagavad-gītā? You have read.
Can you find out? But these people, they have become more learned than
Kṛṣṇa." (SB 2.9.4 lecture. 22 April 1972)
Akshaya Patra do not
distrubute prasadam. Secular goverment regulations do not allow them to.
Neither are they allowed to have kirtan or preach at their (GMO?) bhoga
distribution programs. They are simply assisting the government to get
village children to abandon their vedic culture and attend
"slaughterhouse schools". Some may get menial jobs such as working in call centres, the
others will be at the mercy of the government, used like slaves just so they can eat. They cannot go back to
village vedic life because the government schools do not
teach cow-protection or self-sufficient farming. Why do Akshaya Patra
facilitate these anti-varnashram activities and serve the cause of Kali in the name of Srila Prabhupada?
of Kali such as Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, President Obama and Monsanto
(who have a partnership with Akshaya Patra) approve of their activities,
but does Srila Prabhupada approve? Whose cause are they serving?
