“In the Kali-yuga demons take birth in the families of brahmins.” (Varaha Purana)

This idea of beings from other realms taking birth on Earth with agendas is not unheard of. In the tenth canto of Srimad Bhagavatam, Sri Vishnu instructed the demigods to take birth ahead of Sri Krishna in order to assist Him in His pastimes:

“After all the demigods offered the Purusa-sukta prayer to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, they apparently heard no response. Then Lord Brahma personally sat in meditation, and there was a message-transmission from Lord Visnu to Brahma. Brahma then broadcast the message to the demigods. That is the system of receiving Vedic knowledge. The Vedic knowledge is received first by Brahma from the Supreme Personality of Godhead, through the medium of the heart. As stated in the beginning of Srimad-Bhagavatam, tene brahma hrda: the transcendental knowledge of the Vedas was transmitted to Lord Brahma through the heart. Here also, in the same way, only Brahma could understand the message transmitted by Lord Visnu, and he broadcast it to the demigods for their immediate action. The message was: The Supreme Personality of Godhead will appear on the earth very soon along with His supremely powerful potencies, and as long as He remains on the earth planet to execute His mission of annihilating the demons and establishing the devotees, the demigods should also remain there to assist Him. They should all immediately take birth in the family of the Yadu dynasty, wherein the Lord will also appear in due course of time. ”

(Krsna Book, Chapter One)

The other way around, however, it seems that asuras also take birth as residents of Bharat.

“After being thus informed by Narada about the appearance of the demigods in different families Kamsa at once became alert. He understood that since the demigods had already appeared, Lord Visnu must be coming soon.”

“Kamsa was made aware of his previous birth by the grace of Narada. He learned that in his previous birth he was a demon of the name Kalanemi and that he was killed by Visnu. Having taken his birth in the Bhoja family, he decided to become the deadly enemy of the Yadu dynasty; Krsna was going to take birth in that family, and Kamsa was very much afraid that he would be killed by Krsna, just as he was killed in his last birth.”

(Krsna Book, Chapter One)

I don’t doubt that many of those who have committed atrocities in ISKCON, such as gurukula child molestation, were really demons that took birth with the purpose of implementing demoniac agendas, just as Kamsha was and did.

We also see in the puranic literature that demons express their influence through human beings, as we will see in the case of Duryodhana. There can be normal people who become inspired at some point with specific agendas against Krishna conscious activities. Sadaputa das, in his book Alien Identities (p. 241), knowingly-or-not explains how this could be so in his presentation of the case of King Duryodhana:

“King Duryodhana once had an encounter with some Ganharvas who had cordoned off an area around a lake for recreational purposes and had blocked Duryodhana’s army from entering. When Duryodhana tried to enter anyway, a fierce battle took place, and he was captured by the Gandharva forces. At this point, Arjuna, who was staying nearby, used his political connections with the Gandharva to free Duryodhana. Arjuna and his brothers had been driven into exile by Duryodhana, but Arjuna intervened to save him from the Ganharvas on the grounds that he was a relative and a human being.

Duryodhana was humiliated at being saved by a person he had scorned and mistreated as an enemy, and he decided to give up his everything and fast until death. However, it seems that other parties had long-standing plans for Duryodhana and they weren’t at all pleased by this turn of events.

‘Thereupon the Daityas and Danavas, hearing of his decision, the gruesome denizens of the nether world, who had been defeated by the gods, now, in the knowledge that Duryodhana would wreak their party, performed a sacrificial rite in order to summons him.’ (Mahabharat)

Once Duryodhana was in the presence of the Danavas, they explained to him that his birth on Earth was arranged in advance as part of their plan. His great bodily strength and his near immunity to weapons were arranged by their manipulations. He therefore shouldn’t spoil everything by taking his life. Daityas and Danavas, taking birth as Earthly heroes, would assist him in his battle with the Pandavas. The Danavas also pointed out that they would use mind control to make sure that this battle had the desired outcome.

[They explained to Duryodhana that] ‘other asuras will take possession of Bhishma, Drona, Kripa and the others; and possessed by them they will fight your enemies ruthlessly. When they engage in battle, best of the Kurus, they will give no quarter to either son or brother, parents or relatives, students or kinsmen, the young or the old. Pitiless, possessed by the Danavas, their inner souls overwhelmed, they will battle their relations and cast all love far off. Gleefully, their minds darkened, the tiger-like men, befuddled with ignorance by a fate set by the Ordainer, will say to one another that – ‘you will not escape from me with your life!‘ Standing firm in their manly might in the unleashing of manifold weapons, best of the Kurus, they will boastfully perpetrate a holocost.’

If this wasn’t enough, the Danavas also explained that the hero Karna and the “sworn warriors” (a band of demons) would slay Arjuna. After convincing Duryodhana that he would be victorious, the Danavas arranged for his return.

The same Kritya brought the strong armed man back when he was dismissed, to the very spot where he had been fasting unto death. Kritya put the hero down, saluted him, and when the king had dismissed her, vanished then and there.

‘After it was over, King Duryodhana thought that it had all been a dream, Bharat, and he was left with this thought: I shall vanquish the Pandus in battle.’ ”

Thus, dear readers, there are those among us who are actual demons that have reincarnated, such as kamsa; and those whose hearts have been influenced by possession by evil spirits on the level of chakras and the astral plane.

What a pertinent treasure trove of occult information Sadaputa Das has passed on to us! This puranic narration informs us that demons take birth in human bodies and influence affairs on the surface of the Earth. If this was true 5,000 years ago, even while Sri Krishna walked the face of the Earth, then what to speak of now. The Hare Krishna movement had formed a scientific body (Bhaktivedanta Institute) to debunk the Apollo mission, complete with a worldwide book distribution apparatus selling millions of books per year, a couple of decades before anyone else really mounted any credible debunking effort. And in his literature Shrila Prabhupad went to the extent of damning modern world leaders as a royal edition of dogs, hogs, camels and asses, also as liars, thieves and whoremongers. Surely the Hare Krishna movement scared the materialistic and demoniac elements that control the world, such that the movement deserved and got at least a little bit of infiltration by them, if not much, much more than just a little.

The narration also tells that the demons have the ability to take possession of even dharmic warriors, overwhelm their souls (the Pandavas resisted this), and have them carry out agendas. What to speak of some of the pathetic individuals that have engaged in embezzlement, child molestation and even murder in ISKCON.

We can further develop this line of thought. How about the old myth of the leprechauns that surrender a pot of gold to anyone who can catch them? Surely, this is just a myth and a tall tale that got taller through the ages. More accurately, what is said of them is that they would typically approach certain down and out, rejected families on the outskirts of town and help them with gifted wealth; then, set them up with opportunities and such that these families ascended in society and became influential in their towns, all the while executing the role of lackeys that carry out a gendas of the wee folk. Such doings became so well known that they even found their ways into folkloric literature as motifs.

The character Constanza in the short story The White Doe, by Gustavo Adolfo Béquer, is a good example; she was a shape-shifting doe who lived in the mountains and whose family was very prominent and influential in the Spanish village of Soria. From her purview, she would scoff at the local hunters and admonish them for interfering with the movements of the deer, and would be adamant that they had no business in those parts. So even as little a few hundred years ago, it was suspected that shape-shifters walked within humans society with their agendas, and we have two examples of this from Ireland and Spain.

In his folkloric delvings, this writer once read the anecdote of an Irishman who was walking along a country road when he came across a leprechaun. He exchanged greetings with the leprechaun and asked the wee person where he lived. The leprechaun pointed towards some distant mountains and replied “In those mountains, and it’s none of your business.” With that, the leprechaun went along his merry way.

Certainly, the beings that engage in manipulation of the surface world are not from Zeta Piscium or some far-off galaxy. They are co-planetarians that live in the worlds below our feet, and we have come across them on the surface as evidenced in our folkloric writings on trolls, elves, dwarves, goblins, hobbits and other such assorted wee folk, what to speak of the Nagas that live below lakes and rivers, such as Ulupi, the Naga princess that captured Arjuna; such as Nimue, the Lady of the Lake in Arthurian history! When these beings act on the surface, they don’t waste their time as dishwashers in restaurants; they have an impact on society at the highest echelons!

Are we to assume that when subterranean entities engage in their manipulation of the surface world, that they hike their way up through tunnels and caverns and walk around from victim to victim, perhaps on four hooves? If they are sophisticated enough to engage in shape-shifting a-la-Maricha and Ravanna, then they ought to have vehicles at their disposition to help them. We ourselves don’t even like to walk to the corner store, we prefer our vehicles. And they certainly do have vehicles; the saucer-type UFOs are usually employed by them, and it has been reported that the “grey” entities that man those craft (“man” just as a matter of speech) take their victims to underground locations where they are subjected to hypnotic suggestions for when they are taken back topside (as well as biological implants and egg extraction). Just as a point of reference for the devotees of Krishna, Sadaputa Das, in his book Alien Identities, has established quite well that UFOs exist in the worlds below our feet. On page 175 of his book, Dr. Richard L Thompson ( relates an underground abduction case where the underground base was accessed through the sea by a UFO:
“On the evening of January 3, 1979, Cardenas, his friend Fernando Marti, and Marti’s wife and 13 year old daughter were driving around on the outskirts of Hialeah, looking for a pig they could buy for a roast. They were unsuccessful, and on the way home their car engine quit.

The two men testified that the lights and starter wouldn’t work, and so they got out and began to look under the hood. At this point, they suddenly saw red and violet alternating lights reflecting off the engine and heard a sound like ‘many bees.’ … Filiberto felt paralyzed, and he began to rise in the air shouting “ Don’t take me, don’t take me.” Later he recounted a strange and elaborate story that began when he awoke to find himself sitting, paralyzed, in the presence of a robot-like being and two men in tight-fitting suits. … Filiberto said the alien beings looked quite human. They had elongated eyes with eyelashes, small flattened noses, long lipless mouths, and light beards. They also wore a symbol on the right of their chests, consisting of a serpent on a lazy X.

The story becomes even more extraordinary: The beings proceeded to take Filiberto to an underground base, traveling beneath the sea at high speed through a tunnel of “ firmed water “ that seemed to open in front of the craft so that water did not touch it. At the base, he met a human who was working with the aliens, and he was led through what seemed like a city.”

Dr. Thompson goes on to relate that Filiberto had several experiences while in this underground base accessed through the sea, some of them biological, some of them suggestive of mind control, then he was finally dropped of again on the surface. There are actually a number of such reports, such as found on this page:

Yes, the subterranean worlds within the crust are the home of these insect-like entities. The digital dexterity ascribed to them can only be described as spider-like, and their flat noses and slit mouths with no lips also smack of spiders. Now, where do spiders live? If we were to lift up the foundations of any old row house in a city we would see colonies of ants and spiders, so if we extend this fact a little bit we will be able to deduct that the insect-like humanoids that operate those craft and torment humans have their worlds in the bowels of the Earth. This is the idea.

Remember that Duryodhana didn’t really have any clear recollection of what had happened – he just thought he was a Vedic king and that he had a right to compete with Arjuna, as kings do. In a similar way, there have been leaders active in ISKCON that imagine that they are what they present themselves to be – devotees in the preaching movement – but at certain times their hearts become overwhelmed by demoniac feelings and rationalizations; even worse, some of them seem to have consciously run the zones under their influence into the ground. Perhaps they are carrying out agendas that have been planted in their minds.

Understand that there is nothing impersonal about all this; we can think along the lines of lower and demoniac beings on the astral level influencing someone’s subtle bodyand consciousness through the chakras. I remember just a few years ago, I walked out of a major hospital that had large neuro-psychiatric and psychology wards. I was at a corner waiting to cross the street with a few others that had come out when a boy of about 10 years of age started barking and howling and looking around himself with that wide-eyed, curious look that is so common to canines (K-9s). His mother kept admonishing him, but he didn’t seem to pay much attention; for all intents and purposes, he was a wide-eyed dog in a human body! All of that split personality business is really a matter of some other being having penetrated the polarities that usually help our subtle bodies to resist.

Alas, the demons seemed to have infiltrated most major institutions on the surface of the world, and let no one think that ISKCON’s book distribution activities and Srila Prabhupada’s straightforward preaching didn’t threaten their agendas and provoke their reaction.

I think that by now the readers can certainly understand what happened to the Hare  Krishna movement just prior to, and certainly after the passing of, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, Prabhupada. To actually spell it out, the movement had been infiltrated by some who were against it in mind and spirit; on one hand they preached and seemed to be dutiful, similar to the way in which Duryodhana was a good king; but they also neutralized the preaching and ran the preaching agenda into the ground just as Duryodhana was in actuality an enemy of Krishna’s pure devotees. Surely some of the infiltrators are active and still on call, true sleeper agents, waiting to go off like time bombs.

There are quite a few conclusions we can draw from all this; one of them is to be careful about who gets involved in temple management, in general. Another more specific idea is that it just might not be feasible to feature gurukulas anymore in ISKCON. Nobody can assure that some false devotee with strange agendas won’t be able to infiltrate and have his way with the young ones; and just one slipup of a this nature by a possessed rascal with hidden agendas could generate enough repercussions to do away with ISKCON’s work on an entire continent. Good grief!

The cartoon character Pogo used to say “We have met the enemy, and they are us!” This is not our case. We could say “We are getting hoodwinked by an enemy that we have never truly met, and that enemy walks among us.”

What to do? Perhaps we should first ask what not to do. We shouldn’t overreact, and it is not obvious that we should abandon Shrila Prabhupad’s ISKCON, nor the other movements. There are many nice devotees with many nice programs going on, and these merit participation. Shrila Prabhupad’s book trust, the BBT, also merits our attention and participation.

By the same token, this doesn’t mean that we can’t live the autonomous lifestyle that corresponds to the upper varnas/castes, and be a million balls of light for Krishna consciousness! In fact, it would be prudent to maintain an autonomous platform in life in case the balance tips to the negative side, or in order to maintain a constant in the face of diluted preaching, or in case a major war comes along and the New World Order decides to round up the devotees. If all of the devotees are all living in the temples and farm communities under one, consolidated management structure, this becomes easier for the NWO to do. Food for thought….
