"nama om visnu padaya krsna presthaya bhutale srimate bhaktivedanta swamin iti namine
namaste sarasvate deve gauravani pracarine nirvisesa sunyavadi pascatya desas tarine"
As followers, students, and disciples of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder-Acharya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, also known as the Krishna Consciousness Movement, we welcome you to this new website to explain the position of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada, His original teachings, and His pure unblemished parampara and disciplic succession.
The followers and disciples of Srila Prabhupada's ISKCON Bangalore (Hare Krishna Hill) and Akshaya Patra invite you to peruse the contents of this site to ascertain the truth of the current controversy with the corporate ISKCON and their malicious attacks and harassment of the devotees of ISKCON Bangalore (Hare Krishna Hill).
As Srila Prabhupada states in Sri Ishopanisad:
"... We must therefore save ourselves and our fellow man in the right way. There is no question of liking or disliking the truth. It is there. If we want to be saved from repeated birth and death, we must take to the devotional service of the Lord. There can be no compromise, for this is a matter of necessity..."
- Ishopanisad, Mantra 14 Purport
Srila Prabhupada's pure movement, original teachings and many of His disciples have been and are still under attack by envious persons posing as Vaishnavas and alleged leaders and GBCs (Governing Body Commissioners) of his ISKCON organization.
We are not proud of this, but the truth must be explained. Srila Prabhupada himself explained in his purports to the Sri Chaitanya-Charitamrita in connection with his guru's mission after the departure of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada:
"... Each one of them wanted to become head of the mission, and they fought in the courts, neglecting the order of the spiritual master, and the entire mission was defeated. We are not proud of this; however, the truth must be explained. We believed in the words of our spiritual master and started in a humble way-in a helpless way - but due to the spiritual force of the order of the supreme authority, this movement has become successful...."

The devotees and friends of ISKCON Bangalore (Hare Krishna Hill) invite the readers to acquaint themselves with the original and unrevised teachings and books of Srila Prabhupada, the current acharya of the Gaudiya Sampradaya.
Please note that the links and articles reflect the views, observations and realizations of the individual writers and devotees. They do not necessarily represent the views or official policy of the editors or those of ISKCON Bangalore (Hare Krishna Hill). These articles and essays have been published by many disciples and followers of Srila Prabhupada on the world wide web, in different countries around the world in an effort to differentiate the bona fide followers of the pure unblemished disciplic succession (parampara) of Srila Prabhupada, from the post-1977 self-appointed so-called gurus of the unelected GBC of the corporate ISKCON, and their sordid history of corruption, scandals, and cover-ups.
Srila Prabhupada predicted that there would be disturbances and deviant elements after his departure. He wrote in 1974 in his purports to the Srimad-Bhagavatam:
".. Whenever an acharya comes following the superior orders of the Supreme Personality of Godhead or His representative, he establishes the principles of religion, as enunciated in Bhagavad-gita. Religion means abiding by the orders of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Religious principles begin from the time one surrenders to the Supreme Personality of Godhead. It is the acharya’s duty to spread a bona fide religious system and induce everyone to bow down before the Supreme Lord. One executes the religious principles by rendering devotional service in the form of sravanam, kirtanam, smaranam, etc. (hearing, chanting, remembering, etc.) Unfortunately, when the acharya disappears, rogues and non devotees take advantage and immediately begin to introduce unauthorized principles in the name of so-called swamis, yogis, philanthropists, welfare workers and so on. Actually, human life is meant for executing the orders of the Supreme Lord, and this is stated in Bhagavad-gita (9.34):
man-manaa bhava mad-bhakto
mad-yaji mam namaskuru
mam evaisyasi yuktvaivam
“Engage your mind always in thinking of Me and become My devotee. Offer obeisances and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me."
The main business of human society is to think of the Supreme Personality of Godhead at all times, to become His devotees, to worship the Supreme Lord and to bow down before Him. The acharya, the authorized representative of the Supreme Lord, establishes these principles, but when he disappears, things once again become disordered. The perfect disciples of the acharya try to relieve the situation by sincerely following the instructions of the spiritual master. At the present moment practically the entire world is afraid of rogues and non devotees; therefore this Krishna consciousness movement is started to save the world from irreligious principles. Everyone should cooperate with this movement in order to bring about actual peace and happiness in the world...”
Srimad-Bhagavatam Canto 4:
"The Creation of the Fourth Order" SB 4.28.48 PURPORT
In an attempt to strive to become perfect disciples of the acharya, the devotees, supporters and friends of ISKCON Bangalore have established ISKCON Bangalore, its associate temples and centers, and Akshaya Patra program in an attempt to serve the current Sampradaya-Acharya Srila Prabhupada.
We respectfully invite the readers to ascertain the truth of the ISKCON Bangalore (Hare Krishna Hill) and its Akshaya Patra program and the bona fide position of Srila Prabhupada's pure disciplic succession.
Yours in Srila Prabhupada’s service
