In late 1977, just after Srila Prabhupada's (untimely departure?), the Governing Body Commission of ISKCON declared that eleven GBC had been "appointed by Srila Prabhupada as his guru successors." However, many of us (the rank and file members of ISKCON) doubted this "guru appointment" from the outset, since Srila Prabhupada had said that "guru by appointment" was a bogus misconception found in the 1930s Gaudiya Matha. He also said that guru cannot be made by "rubber stamping" a defective person, and so on and so forth.

One of the original 1977 "contentious questions" was, for example: "Where is the specific evidence that eleven GBCs have been appointed as gurus"? We were told, quite vociferously and militantly at that time, that the eleven gurus had been appointed on May 28th, 1977. However, to date no one from the GBC has ever even shown where any gurus had ever been "appointed," nor has the GBC answered this question with a solid document of proof in twenty three years.

Instead, many GBCs and even some of the eleven so-called "appointed gurus" have subsequently admitted that the "May 28th appointment of eleven gurus" announcement in November 1977, was and is a fraud and a hoax. The GBC has thus never shown how "the eleven" were meant to to become recognized as gurus in the first place? In short, the original "appointment of gurus" formula was simply a "big lie." Tamal Krishna, the master mind of that bogus guru system, admitted in the Topanga Canyon conversations that Srila Prabhupada never appointed any gurus, only ritviks. And worse, many other subsequent GBC lies have been discovered such as: that Sridhara Maharaja had been appointed as ISKCON's instructing guru, that the GBC was supposed to take shelter of the founder of the homosexual and dissident murdering mayhem of the Gaudiya Matha, and so on and so forth.

Of course, this history has never been explained either? Who authorized the GBC to go to the Gaudiya Matha starting in 1978 for "advice"? When did Srila Prabhupada say that the founder of the dissident murdering guru imbroglio, who is credited by Srila Prabhupada with destroying the Gaudiya Matha (Sridhara Maharaja), was now going to be catapulted forward as "ISKCON's Higher Authority"? And in so doing didn't the GBC officially link themselves to "guru contentions" such as; the previous bogus 1930s guru appointment imbroglio and: the idea that homosexuals and dissident murdering orchestrartors are or were Vaishnava acharyas?

The Gaudiya Matha's imbroglio is indeed itself a long and dark history, going back to what Srila Prabhupada says was their "kill guru and become guru" mentality from the 1930s --and dating back vast ages ago when false gurus first appeared. These links remain up till today, since the GBC's main 1978 papers were created by Sridhara Maharaja of the Gaudiya Matha, and to date these papers are still considered as bona fide parts and parcels of authoritative GBC documents.

To sum, the bogus guru appointment illegally consolidated the control of the assets of ISKCON. Therefore, the post-1977 leaders, most of whom were now officially advocate deviant gurus, were able to legally remove most of the other rank and file followers to create their molester worship enterprise. This is also a MISUSE of the charity status of ISKCON.

At the earlier point in time the evidence for the alleged appointment, and indeed Srila Prabhupada's poisoning, was being hidden and suppressed. As it turns out there is no evidence of any appointment of eleven successors. The GBC even refused to accept a public challenge made in the Vrindavana India newspapers, offering anyone 108,000 dollar who could provide any factual evidence of this alleged appointment.

What is also well known is that the GBC leaders had a history all along, even before 1977, of vicious internal "zonal takeover wars"; mismanagement in general; mis-citing Srila Prabhupada; embezzling funds; engaging in illicit sex among some sannyasis; what Srila Prabhupada called "plotting and scheming"; and of course some of the leaders were known to have tendencies towards homosexuality and criminality. Much of this information is detailed in Srila Prabhupada's letters, which were mysteriously hidden from the devotees especially after 1977.

Indeed, those of us who later tried to publish "the letters" were given death threats by Governing Body Commission leaders in 1984, and our associate Steve Bryant was murdered on May 22, 1986 for publishing and distributing the letters. The Berkeley police said that I was next on the GBC deviant's "hit list."

What has never been exlpained by the GBC is: "Why would Srila Prabhupada insist that persons with known defects had suddenly become worshipped 'as pure as Jesus'"?

Anyway, as has been subsequently analysed, this "guru appointment" was merely a ruse used by some deviant "Governing Body Commission" members to consolidate "legal and financial" control over the assets of ISKCON, from where they could legally remove most of the other rank and file devotees and enjoy the assets of ISKCON. Indeed, more than ninety percent of the orginal followers are no longer in the institution.
