Top Australian Hare Krishna taken to Court for stealing

#######  It’s a  David and Goliath  battle, we’re told.  #######

Rumour is that David K, well-known Hare Krishna devotee, is about to serve Court documents on Melbourne Temple President ANIRUDDHA.

David, previously a lively, enthusiastic individual, is said to be crushed by his enduring experience of Temple mismanagement.

Court documents allege that long-time Temple President – and Deputy Member of the supreme ruling body – is a thief.

David K told insiders that he donated 3 cars to the Ashram/Temple.   Aniruddha (pronounced ani-ruda) took them for his own use and later sale.

Aniruddha (a spiritual name) was previously an Australian Anglican.  Married to Indian Acintya Rupa, he has been Temple President for over 28 years.   Aniruddha is a top advisor to the supreme Hare Krishna authority, the Governing Body Commission based in Mayapur, India.  (The Commissioner/Swamis/advisors are VERY frequent flyers, with Jayapataka Swami travelling  FIRST CLASS to bless his many disciples – due to his OBESITY!!)

Aniruddha and wife have travelled to India a little too frequently in recent years.  He (and his power) is closely protected by right-hand man Prahbu Das.

In Sanskrit (ancient Indian holy language), Aniruddha means “without control” and that appears to sum up the stranglehold/dictatorship he has on the Melbourne Temple and elsewhere. Because his is the dominant Australian Temple, Aniruddha is thought to know of other corrupt, wasteful and illegal practices of the Hare Krishnas in Australia and New Zealand, including the dubious ethics of Brisbane Hare ISKCON and the Food for Life programme (What exactly is FFL? A creation to raise money & avoid tax? Why no accountability?).

(Melbourne Temple was said to have been almost bankrupt 7 or 8 years ago.  It may still be as no accounts are published.  (It has been superficially rescued only by record Indian immigration into Melbourne.)

This is what the Anti-Defamation (of ISKCON founder) says of Aniruddha::

(Aniruddha, TP*)
This  enigmatic suction  pump has  both  hands  in  the  till … A wage taking TP, he has caused the collapse of the Victorian gurukula [schooling system**]…. The farm under his management has also taken a nose dive … Adelaide Temple which is also a Melbourne responsibility, has been on the brink of disaster…  A total “aham” [ego] freak, Aniruddha das would love to have his murti [sacred image] on the alter (sic)…

(Added emphasis –  SOURCE)

* Temple President ** Controversial system of education.  Court cases have sought damages for ‘interference’ to children.  See ‘Issues within the Society’ (in Wikipedia). New Vrindavan (Murwillumbah northern NSW farm) has recently been given  Government  $  for  its  school – despite its ‘child loving’ past.
