ISKCON Mayapur Statement

T he Management of ISKCON Mayapur hereby expresses our strong condemnation of the recent, vicious physical attack on His Grace Sadhu das. We pray that Sadhu prabhu will make a full recovery and that those responsible for this reprehensible act will face punishment to the fullest extent of the law.

We also request that all the devotees of our ISKCON society offer prayers to Lord Krishna for Sadhu prabhu’s full recovery.

In addition, as it seems likely that this attack was motivated by a conflict arising over private land and property usage or purchasing, the Mayapura Management has issued warnings to our community regarding the dangers of land and property speculation. We are also taking steps to safeguard against similar volatile situations arising in the future.

Any devotees affiliated with ISKCON who are thinking of buying or leasing land or property in Mayapur are requested to contact Mayapura Community Sevaks at < Phone +91 (0) 3472 245411 so that we can provide suitable advice and guidance in this regard.

    It is sad that such things happen in the Holy Dham. But then, it is also very unfortunate that the devotees are also caught up in the greed to make money by indulging in land speculation. So much cheating is going on in Mayapur by the devotees and there is no one to look into this matter.

    It is no wonder that violence occurs where there is a greed for money. I hope the management wakes up at least now and ensures that real estate development happens properly with devotees being careful to not cheat.

    But then, the management’s powers are limited to ensure this.
