Dear Maharajas, Prabhus, and Didis,
Dandavat Pranams! Sri Guru Gouranga jayatah!
Yesterday the popular weekly magazine "Mladina" came out. Title page:
"Sexual molester". The most interesting things will be noted as
follows. Main topic was the new victim of the gay Bhavanatha das. A
new victim showed up, his name is Joze Naglic. Although the
press-speaker Uddharta das (hks) stressed that all we claim were
lies, that nothing had happened in their temple, and after he
threatened the press to get them on court, because they are spreading
lies, another boy stepped forward and spoke about his case, and
therewith refuted all what Uddharta das said. In the magazine Joze
told, that before he moved into the temple he still had a job, but
was to give 50% of his income to the temple. In the beginning after
he move in the temple he was an allround boy, he had to clean the
pots, carry the waste out, and clean the toilets. And because Joze
was a "good boy" he got a job as driver for the homosexual temple
treasurer Bhavanatha das, one of the highly respected temple-
authorities. From the very beginning Joze felt something was strange
with Bhavanatha das. All the time Bd asked him strange questions,
like what kind of emotion Joze got for him, or what Joze first sees
when he looks at Bd. Emmediately Joze complained to the temple
authorities, and they told him he should simply tolerate this, it
just was a little mistake in Bd's character, which should be
tolerated. Bd, they said, was a nice devotee, and he would also
stop acting this way. Joze was shocked, but he had to follow the
instructions of the "authorities", and he was more and more molested
by Bd. Joze tells "Once we were in the forest, getting water, Bd
started fondeling my hair, and when a man jogged by, dressed in
very tight pants (the genitals were very visible) Bd asked me if I
also would like to wear this." Joze again was very shocked and again
complained to the temple authorities, but nothing happened. Joze had
to further tolerate this annoyance.
"IN THE NIGHTS I WOKE UP AND SAW THE GAY Bd ,
WATCHING ME WITH HUNGRY EYES, HE TOLD ME HOW
MUCH HE WAS IN LOVE WITH ME, AND MADE ALLUSIONS
ABOUT HAVING SEX WITH ME."
Joze than did not only critisize the gay, but also the temple
authorities who supported Bd, which later lead to an examination by
the "temple-counsil". Joze knew to many things about the financial
background of the temple, and he was threatened that he should never
speak about the tendencies of the gay treasurer. Joze was intimidated
and shocked. After the examination one of the head-preachers Moksa
Rupi das (hks) came up to him and gave him an amicable advice:
"IF A BHAKTA HAS GOT PROBLEMS, THE BEST MEDICINE
IS A PLASTER OVER THE LIPS!!"
Joze was completely despaired, nobody wanted to help him. And he also
was not allowed to speak to anybody about it. The journalist asked
Joze, why he did not move out of the temple and report the
molestation to the police. Joze explained that the temple made him
socially depending on them, he did not even have contact to his
parents anymore. Joze told just a few things to the journalist,
because he was very ashamed.
NAKED AT THE LADIES SLEEPING ROOM DOOR
Another report was made by Aljosha Nejedly. He was a ful-time devotee
in Italy (Villa Vrindavan) and also in the Ljubljana temple. He spoke
about his terrible experiences with the temple authorities. They
examined him with NAZI-like techniques. From those examination he got
inferiority complexes. He also told his friends story which ended
with psychosis, because he was so fanatically preached to, although
this boy was not able to follow celibacy. His story ended with a
sexual perversion: One night he stood naked at the ladies sleeping
room door, begging to let him in. In truth he also said (which the
magazine did not write) "Radha, open the door, here is your Krishna!"
This happened in Villa Vrindavana, Italy. He needed to be treated in
a mental hospital, and until today needs medicines. The leadership of
Iskcon Ljubljana cannot properly lead the unstable members, and like
this makes them psychic and mental sick.
In the report also was written, that the temple was collecting
signatures from parents, which protested against the work of the
public medias. The journalist recited one sentence from the
accompanying letter: "We as parents are very much shocked about the
information, which sincerely hurt. We, who know the members of this
movement very well, because they are our beloved sons and daughters,
are very worried, not because of the possible rapes, but because the
press medias are misusing their freedom of the press... wrote the sad
parents." An insider told us, those parents were invited for a nice
meal in the temple (which is very unusual in Iskcon Ljubljana, it's
hard to get any Prasadam there) and then were asked to put their
signatures on an empty sheet. Later the text was created...
A worried mother, Nada Vodusek showed up. Her daughter Mateja lives
in the temple. Nada claimed the temple simply finished her daughter,
made her socially depending on the temple. Mateja cannot think
Patita Pavana's mother (the first gay victim) complained about the
lies of the Iskcon Ljubljana temple, which claims that Patita Pavana
flirted with Bhavanatha das, there was no abuse going on, it was just
gay-flirting. On the other hand the temple offered them a big sum of
hush-money, for that Patita Pavana and Sadbhuj Gour would not anymore
inform the public.
In the report also was a picture where Uddharta das shaked the hand
of the slovenian president Milan Kucan. Under the picture was
written: "Often the members are instructed to meet great state
personalities, to give them books as gifts and to be photographed
with them." Later in the text is written that they use it as
propaganda, like showing this politicians on their side.
The journalist wrote that Patita Pavana called him, and again
confirmed his story, that he stood behind what he said, it was the
truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
Also we had an interview with the state TV. We will tell about on
Thursday, after it was broadcasted.
It is sad to report about such things, and we pray to Sri Krishna
that he will inspire the corrupt GBC to undertake something.
Still we have to suffer telephone-terror.
Beg to remain your servant
Sadbhuj Gour das
