The Facts About Srila Prabhupada's Poisoning by Arsenic
Part 3 -
Bhaktia Caru Swami to cover-up Srila Prabhupada’s poisoning

"So as Krishna was attempted to be killed... And Lord Jesus Christ was killed.
So they may kill me also." (Srila Prabhupada, May 3, l976, Honolulu)
"my only request is , that at the last stage don't torture me, and put me to death"
(from SPC Vol. 36, November 3, 1977 tape recorded Room Conversation)

Part 3

and implication in Srila Prabhupadas poisoning


From the "Conversation Tapes," and from what the Bhaktivedanta Investigation Force (BIF) has gathered, as well as from the book itself (Not That I am Poisoned); there appears to be an orchestrated denial by the GBC of stark evidence linking poison to Srila Prabhupada's passing. Birds of a feather, they use their license as a right to supersede mandatory laws; giving sanctuary to murderers, paedophiles, misogynists, homosexuals, fornicators, machiavellians, masochists, narcissists, machismos and megalomaniacs.

Under the GBC's lacunae-riddled-legislature, felons germinate like maggots in a cadaver. Laws that reek of cultism. Laws that tell the world the GBC respects no judicature or jurisprudence beyond itself. Not even the intervention of the Civil Court. Here, read it for yourself:

Iskcon Law No: 12.8 ".......and however much he may be dissatisfied with the exercise of that jurisdiction, he shall refrain from invoking the supervisory power of the Civil Court, but shall seek redress of any grievance(s) through the ISKCON judicial process. Otherwise, he may be removed from office and / or his membership in ISKCON terminated.(88)" For those who are not acquainted with Iskcon's infrastructure and its complex food chain, this attitude should give some insight into why the suspects have not yet been exposed to public investigation.

Another fait accompli; is the total exclusion of God-Sisters from the "Testimonies," (or any other part of the book for that matter). Sisters were always part of the movement, yet, not once in the book (NTIP) have they been approached by the authors to "testify" or express a point of view.

Does this glaring truth unwittingly betray the misogyny of the GBC? Does it portray Iskcon as a power-hungry club for "Men Only?" Or is it simply a fact that women, historically, have never been involved in a spiritual coup d' etat? Whatever reasons are there for the absence of early feminine involvement in Iskcon politics; the chapter is wrongly titled. Instead of "Testimonies" the caption should read: "Testosterone." Because, in fact, that is all it is; an alpha over a kill being eulogized by subjected emulators.

Below we analyze the first "Testimony." It is an offering by Bhakticaru, who is also known as "Phakicaru" (Phaki or Phakibaj, is Indian slang for "fake"). He is a member of Iskcon's GBC and a "guru." He is also closely associated with the suspects. In fact his position and well-being within Iskcon was awarded him by the suspects themselves, and depends on his continued subservience to them. Does this mean that he himself is not a suspect? No!!! we did not say that at all. It is a matter for legal adjudication. Involvement in a criminal act of this nature entails levels of perpetration and complicity. BIF simply spotlights what is obvious. And what is obvious, is the continuous stream of lies emitted by these so called holy-men and their collaborators within Iskcon.

Bhakticaru: From NTIP Page-121,para-2 (quote) " Since I was one of Srila Prabhupada's servants at that time, taking care of his food and medicines, according to that book (Someone has Poisoned Me), I am naturally a suspect......" (unquote) Why Bhakticaru continuously tries to impress on us his important position as Srila Prabhupada's minder, is not difficult to understand. This is his way of justifying his "guruship" and seniority. But what we find curious is his assumption that he, as a carer, is 'naturally a suspect.' We know from the available evidence, that a number of people had access to Srila Prabhupada's food and medicines. In fact, there were about eighteen doctors and a number of carers who shot through in rapid succession. QUESTION: So why does Bhakticaru martyr himself with the mantle of "suspect?" ANSWER: To baffle investigators by setting up a false target. Also, it is what complicity does to camouflage the "overact" or indulgence of a superior. Like a tail-wagging-doggie saying thanks for the bone. That's right, subordination sucks.

The second part of Bhakticaru's (above) statement, is indeed a revelation of the man's mendacity. Here it is: (quote) "When I first heard about this allegation (poisoning) I considered it to be so absurd that I did not think it deserved any response. I could not even imagine that anyone with a rational mind would give any credence to such an allegation." (unquote). NOTE: Bhakticaru first heard the "allegation" from Srila Prabhupada himself. Bhakticaru is a "phakibaj," (a fake) ipso facto. Bhakticaru may have forgotten, but we certainly have not. Nor have the "Conversation Tapes." Nor have the devotees who were present at the time. Nor have those who swear Bhakticaru said he believed Srila Prabhupada was being poisoned even before his departure from this world.

BIF will show below how Bhakticaru et al, did not find the "allegations" "absurd" at the time when Srila Prabhupada complained about being poisoned. We have sworn statements by devotees (who have nothing to lose or gain) claiming Bhakticaru has admitted on numerous occasions (throughout the last twenty-four years) to believing that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned. So the questions arise; Why does Bhakticaru tell one story publicly and another in private? Is he afraid? Has he decided to accept complicity in his gamble for gain? Anyway, here is a walk down memory lane, and Bhakticaru's own statements on tape from Nov: ' 77.

Bhavananda: Prabhupada was complaining of mental distress this morning also.

Bhakticaru: Srila Prabhupada.
SP: Hmm?
Bhakticaru (Bengali): Ota ki byapaar hoyechelo? mental distress?
Trans: What is that problem? mental distress?
Kaviraja: (Hindi) Boliye, boliye.
Trans: Say, say.
SP: (Hindi): Wohi bat jo koi hamko poison kya.
Trans: That talk (that) someone has poisoned me.
Bhakticaru: (Hindi) O aacha, uno soch na ki koi......
Trans: O' okay, he thinks that someone....
Kaviraja (speaking over Bhakticaru): Dekhiye bat yehi hai ki kisi rakshas ne diya ho.
Trans: Look, this is the understanding; some demon has given (poison).
Bhakticaru: "Someone gave him poison here."

Kaviraja: ...Caru swami.. (Bhakticaru says "yes")... kisi rakshas ne diya ho. Yeh to ho sakta hai. Impossible nehi hain. Woh Sankaracarya the; unhe kisi ne poison diya. Cheh mahina tak woh bari taklif paye. Kanch to hota hai na ? botal ke kanch, yeh pees ke khane mein khila diya. To usko kya nitaja hua; bara mahina baad mai, leprosy ho gaya sab sharir ki undar. To karam to apna bhugte hai. Kintu jo medicine ham dai raka hai; jadi koi uska effect hoga poison to rahe nahin sakta, guarenteed bolta hai. Ki woh be effected hoga to rahin nahi sakta. Ki abhi to ham pakar nahin saktai usko unko diya hua hai. Abhi bhi pakarta hai jab kidney kharab ho gaya, kisi karanse ya bimari se ho, chai graha se ho, chai poison se.

Trans: ...Caru swami (Bhakticaru says, "yes")..some demon has given (poison). This can happen. It's not impossible. There's that Sankaracarya (person), someone gave him poison. For six months he suffered. There is glass you know? Bottle glass? It was ground and fed in food. What befell him; after twelve months; leprosy spread inside his body. Everyone suffers their karma. But the medicine I have given, if any (poisonous) effect occurs; it cannot stay. I give a guarantee, that even if there are effects they will not stay. Because right now, I cannot detect (poison) has been given to him. It is detected when the kidneys go bad, or by some symptom of disease, by (effects) of the eclypse, or by poison (?) .

Tamala Krsna: Prabhupada was thinking that someone had poisoned him?

Bhakticaru: YES!!!
Tamala Krsna: That was the mental distress?
Bhakticaru: YES!!!.

Kaviraja: Yeh bolte hai to isme kuch na kuch satya he. Isme koi sandeha nahin.
Trans: This is what (Srila Prabhupada) says, then there must be some truth in it. In this there is no doubt.
Tamala Krsna: What did Kaviraja just say?
Bhakticaru: He said that when Srila Prabhupada was saying that (he is poisoned) there must be something truth behind it.
Unidentified: Sssss!
(Everyone begins speaking together)

Kaviraja: Koi rakshas hai...daina wallah..Pan me ek cheez de doon. Kya batun...doodh me de doon. Khana ek pan me dwai de doon, subhe me jindagi be bhool sakhoge.
Trans: It's some rakshasa...the poisoner...will put something in paan. What to say...(or) something in milk. To eat, (he) will put a medicine in pan, by the morning (your) whole life can be forgotten.

Tamala Krsna: Srila Prabhupada, Sastriji says that there must be some truth to it if you say that. So who is it that has poisoned?
Srila Prabhupada does not answer.

So why didn't Bhakticaru tell the kaviraja he was thinking irrationally? with absurdity? Why didn't he tell Srila Prabhupada that? Why did Bhakticaru himself say, "Someone gave him poison here." Not only did Bhakticaru, Tamala, Jayapataka, Bhavananda and the kaviraja fail to address this greviance, they also cohorted to exclude any official investigation or pathological analysis to support or negate it. Tamala Krsna: "WE did not go searching for a murderer because WE concluded there was no murder." (NTIP. Page-146).

[Comment: unbelievable!... here just everyone agrees that Srila Prabhupada is being poisoned -including Tamal- and Tamal says WE concluded there was no murder.]

BIF WANTS TO KNOW FROM TAMALA....WHO ARE THE "WE" IN THIS STATEMENT ?? The time for identification is here. Let's take a head-count.

Here are some ear and eyewitness accounts, exposing Bhakticaru's "irrational" or "selective memory syndrome:"

(Witness- Name witheld): " Bhakticaru was also shocked as the rest of us were. What happened was, we were all within and around Srila Prabhupada's bed, at least there were five godbrothers present.....Srila Prabhupada said something and we did not understand mostly because Srila Prabhupada spoke in a whisper then. Bhakticaru understanding it was Bengali Srila Prabhupada was speaking, climbed closer within Srila Prabhupada's bed to hear what His Divine Grace had said. In Bengali Srila Prabhupada spoke something to Bhakticaru at which he at once translated to us as Srila Prabhupada is saying, Someone has poisoned him. There was a moment of silence and we were all shocked at this. Then once again Srila Prabhupada said also only to Bhakticaru in Bengali which Bhakticaru instantly translated as, "He's saying he's been poisoned like they poisoned his Guru Maharaja." Tamala Krsna was to the back of the bed and he came around to Srila Prabhupada's left hand side and said, "Who has poisoned you Srila Prabhupada?" And then said without waiting for an answer to his question "No one could poison you it would surely have to be some poison as you are always protected by the Holy Name."

(Witness- Name withheld) " He's been telling me for the last twenty-four years that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned. He even told me he suspected Srila Prabhupada was being poisoned before he left this world. Now he is denying. What is my gain or loss to say this. Bhakticaru Maharaja may remember that I introduced him to Krsna Consciousness and to the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada. Why is he saying lies? Why is he denying like this?"

(Witness- Name withheld) " I was very suspicious about Srila Prabhupada's early departure when Bhakticaru approached me in a panicky mood. He was crying and weeping heavily. It was Nov, 15 th 1977. He said to me, Srila Prabhupada said someone had poisoned him. Bhakticaru: (in Europe) "It's just natural when you get such shocking complaints from Srila Prabhupada, who is very dear to you and he just happened to be the person you thought you were serving lovingly, then suddenly, the food you gave him might have been poisoned!!!"

The list of witnesses is formidable, and shall be produced in the proper arena. For now we will continue with Bhakticaru's "testimony" in the book, "Not that I am Poisoned" (NTIP).

Bhakticaru: ( Page 123, para-2) (quote) "......what to speak of poisoning Srila Prabhupada, the devotees around Srila Prabhupada were praying to Krsna to let Srila Prabhupada stay on the planet in exchange of their lives." (unquote). Yes. BIF partially agrees with Bhakticaru. There was a great deal of praying going on. Even Srila Prabhupada noticed this. Here are his thoughts on the matter: SP: " You are all here praying for me to live and 'they' are in the next room praying for me to die."

Bhakticaru: ( Page-124, para-2) (quote) " Srila Prabhupada had to just tell any one of the few hundred devotees that were there (about the poisoning), and one can imagine what the reaction would have been like." (unquote). But he did!!! He told Bhakticaru, he told Tamala, Jayapataka, Bhavananda the kaviraja and others. There is more than ample evidence to prove it. Yet NOTHING was done. Not even the basic desideratum was carried out. What really astounds us; is the rainbow of political factions, who have chosen to drown in their stubbornness rather than admit it. To them we say: BIF is not seeking any recognition. We have no political agenda. Nor do we choose to grandstand or lead. We are simply dedicated and indebted sons of His Divine Grace, who will remain in this material world, until this vile business of our Gurudeva's disappearance is brought before the Courts.

Bhakticaru: (Page-124/25) (quote) "One evening I was with Tamala Krsna Maharaja in our room in Vrindavan. A mosquito was sucking his blood sitting on his leg. It had become quite bloated with the blood that it sucked from his body. A sudden pain from the bite made TKM aware of that mosquito. His hand rose in a natural reflex to strike that little creature, but stopped all of a sudden, and then it came down slowly and flicked the mosquito away from his leg. The person who would not even kill the mosquito that was sucking his blood, how can anyone think that he gave poison to his spiritual master." (unquote). This tail-wagging-bum-sniffing attitude exposes the possible complicity of Bhakticaru in the cabal. According to him: if Tamala couldn't even kill a mosquito he was incapable of poisoning his spiritual master. So if we accept this logic, then Tamala could possibly have poisoned Srila Prabhupada if he was a mosquito killer. Okay. A BIF operative, had no idea how an after-prasadam discussion (taped), would have any bearing on this story. But it did. Here it is:

Induleikha Mastaji (IM) : It was in ' 95 at Mayapura. I was having some family problems and needed to talk to TKG to help me with some direction. I remember it was Mayapura because there was no brahmacarini asram and I was having difficulty finding a place to stay. So I went up to see him.

BIF: Where exactly did Tamala meet with you?
IM: It was upstairs in one of those rooms in the conch building.
BIF: Who else was there? Where were you in proximity to Tamala? And where was he?
IM: I don't remember who else was there, but I remember sitting on the floor. Tamala was sitting up on a bed looking down.
BIF: Okay. So what happened next?
IM: A mosquito was trying to bite me. It sat on my face and I drove it off. Soon it was back again, this time it landed on my arm. I shooed it off again. Then I heard TKG say, "Kill it." I looked up. He was looking straight at me. "Kill it," he repeated. His eyes were intense (she demonstrated by fixing her eyes without blinking).
BIF: What did you do?
IM: I was scared. The mosquito had gone. I remember feeling some relief. But then it was back again and TKG was saying again, "Kill it !... I said kill it !"
BIF: Why didn't you just kill it?
IM: I didn't want to. Besides, I would have blood all over my hands. So I said to him, "No I won't."
BIF: Wow! And then what?
IM: He just glowered at me, then got up and walked straight out the room without saying another word.

So much for Tamala's soft heart. He wanted the mosquito dead, and when it wasn't killed he rejected the pleas of a woman who needed his help and guidance.

(Witness- Name withheld) (quote) "Tamala is a very cruel man. He is capable of the most heinous atrocities" (unquote). So Bhakticaru can take his eulogies of Tamala and stick it where the monkey stuck his last nut. We are not impressed.

Bhakticaru: (Page-126, para-2) (quote) "To this world I will declare clear and loudly, "It is an absolutely absurd allegation that Srila Prabhupada has been poisoned by his disciples. If anyone intentionally poisoned Srila Prabhupada, then it must be me because those days I was the only one who used to give prasad and medicines to His Divine Grace whatever he ate and drank went through my hands." (unquote).

Please note: Bhakticaru believes it is an absolutely absurd allegation that Srila Prabhupada has been poisoned by his disciples. There is no need for any reverse speech analysis here. What he's saying is; it would not be absurd to believe that Srila Prabhupada could have been poisoned by someone other than his disciples. In fact, he doesn't argue against the poisoning at all. Then he says (quote) "If anyone intentionally poisoned Srila Prabhupada then it must be me....."( unquote). So we must assume; since he is not disputing the fact that Srila Prabhupada was poisoned, and if it was not "intentionally" done by him, then it must have been done "accidentally" by someone else. A disassociated demon on a busman's holiday perhaps?? Here it is: Kaviraja: (quote) "Listen, this is the understanding that some raksasa (may) have given (poison)......Caru swami (Bhakticaru says "yes")..some raksasa has given (poison). This can happen. It's not impossible (unquote). Is this sanity? Can you imagine what a jury would think? Who allowed this man near Srila Prabhupada? But most importantly: Why didn't this "absurd" and "irrational" deduction raise even the slightest argument or need for clarification from Bhakticaru, Tamala, Jayapataka or Bhavananda? They were all there. How is it that a suggestion so far-fetched, didn't so much as raise a yahoo from these cowboys? WHY?? Can we see the coven if not the covenant? The mob if not the hit? The poisoners if not the poison?

When BIF members traveled around the world spending time and money to raise signatures for a petition, we were surprised at the total lack of interest in this parricide. Why our brothers and sisters have chosen to remain indifferent to this issue, which covers the matha of our Gurudeva like poison oozing from every orifice of the demon, remains a mystery. Ask any Christian, "Who killed Jesus?" and they will say "Roman soldiers." No one knows their names. But ask anyone, " Who washed his hands off Jesus?" and they will answer, "Pontious Pilate." Does this not say; indifference is eternally damned?


BIF-5, Part-2, will continue with the "Testimonies and Statements" as presented in the book,
"Not that I am Poisoned." Part-2 will address the "testimony" of Tamala Krsna.

All excerpts from taped interviews and investigative reports, courtesy of the Bhaktivedanta Investigative Force (BIF).


Comment by Aruna das, Austria: Charu Swami, you liar, cheater, hypocrit, first you tell us that Prabhupada has being poisoned and later you state the exact opposite. Yes, it was you who helped killing Prabhupada by offering him poisonous milk. Bhakta Charu is such a nonsense devious rascal! His history says all:


I spent several hours in Alachua among fluent Hindi speakers, going over the tape word by word; phrase by phrase. Then we all went to a sound studio where the tapes had been digitally "cleaned up" and enhanced.

Not one of us in the room could avoid hearing the horrible [whispers], "The poison's going down" (breath) "The poison's going down!" (breath) "the poison's going down!" Then a voice with a husky whisper says, "Let's put the poison in the milk". In a few moments Bhakta Charu gives Srila Prabhupada milk. Srila Prabhupada says that it is "too sweet" (everyone in the room PARTICULARLY Tamal KNOWS that Srila Prabhupada has diabetes, and does not like His milk sweet). If it were 1969 instead of 1977, Tamal would have dragged whoever made the milk over the COALS for making it too sweet and 'Displeasing the Spiritual Master').

Without RESPONDING to Srila Prabhupada's direct complaint about the milk, Bhakta Charu quickly tries to distract Srila Prabhupada by asking him to wipe His mouth on His sleeve. (WHY HIS SLEEVE? ARE THERE NO SERVANTS TO WIPE THE MOUTH OF THE JAGAT GURU ON HIS DEATHBED?)

"Just imagine the servant butler of the Queen gives her a glass milk and afterwards he will ask the Queen to wipe her mouth with the sleeve of her clothes" ????



Question: why is Bhakti Caru forcing Srila Prabhupada to drink hot sweet milk, which he does NOT like? He and the others knew that Srila Prabhupada suffered from diabetic, and that sugar is poison for any diabetic patient. The question is: why a known diabetic was being given sugar in hot sweet milk? Why was hot sweet milk being given to a known diabetic in crisis? Srila Prabhupada's dangerous state of health came from advanced diabetes, resulting in severe damage to the kidneys and other systemic problems. Bakti Caru insisted Srila Prabhupada to drink hot sweet milk. If he did not kill him with arsenic milk, than he still killed him with too sweet milk which is poison for a diabetic person.

Citrakara dasa, an MD in Alternative Medicine, an Ayurveda Physician and disciple of Srila Prabhupada, reported on his extensive discussions with Abhirama dasa about the quality of care Srila Prabhupada received. Citrakara dasa expressed serious concerns about the handling of Srila Prabhupada's diagnosis of diabetes.

How could sweetened milk be served to Srila Prabhupada by his personal servant? This is very very dangerous, considering Srila Prabhupada was a diabetic and considering the diagnosis of the British expert quoted by Abhirama Prabhu. This in itself was poison for him - no need to add arsenic nor mercury.

In his report of November 12, 1997, Mahabuddhi dasa quotes segments of a tape conversation in Bengali, where Srila Prabhupada complains that he has been given very sweet hot milk. Like Citrakara dasa, Mahabuddhi dasa also questions why a known diabetic was being given sugar.

Mahabuddhi dasa says: "Srila Prabhupada was a diabetic, why would they make it too sweet? Could this be a cover up for poison in the milk? If you listen to the tapes and you understand it in the same way - you have to wonder why they moved the microphone away when Jayapataka Maharaja was speaking to Srila Prabhupada, as his voice gets cut off, then you hear the attempt to turn the microphone off, the faint whispers of "lets put poison in the milk" and then you can hear Jayapataka Maharaj still talking to Srila Prabhupada farther away."

Kaviraja: (speaks in Hindi)
Tamala Krsna:

This is not a whisper - these words are clearly audible. It is interesting to note that even though the transcription of this section of the audio tape was transcribed into the BBT Folio, this sentence was omitted. Why was this sentence omitted? How will BBT / Bhaktivedanta Archives officials explain this mystery?

BIF Investigation Part3 states the following:
Though the information provided in "TKG's Diary" is scanty, desultory and peripatetic without a lodestar (other than Herzig's own encomium) we are still left with little doubt that His Divine Grace was being tortured to death (by negligence if not pre-meditation). To debate between dubious medication, arsenic, and diet as catalysts, is academic. It would appear that all three worked in unison to achieve fatal results. Whereas the administration of arsenic has no confession, the dispensation of sugar has (read below). And since a high level of blood sugar (complex carbohydrates) is known to exacerbate complications in diabetics, and since it is considered extremely hazardous (poisonous) if not strictly monitored and regulated. and since Prabhupada's 'nurses' were already aware of his diabetic condition (Ch: 2, NTIP), it is our belief that bogus medication sugars and arsenic used in concert, silenced His Divine Grace.

From the "Conversation Tape" (T-46) we have reason to believe that sugar was plied into His Divine Grace on a regular basis. Here's why:  Srila Prabhupada: (talking about his milk) Beshi mishti hoyeche (It has become too sweet). hoyeche= (has become)= past continuous tense. This tells us; at other times it was not as sweet, but it was constant and sweet nevertheless. And here are other reasons for concern: 

It would be utter nonsense for anyone to even suggest that His Divine Grace was monitoring his own diet. Here we see, who controlled Srila Prabhupada's diet:- Tamala Krsna (Herzig):" Now on one hand we could take it...give him that medicine(poison) or let him stop death...until death, we could have done that."  (Taped conversation dated 11/77 between Thomas Herzig and Satasvarupa das, in which Herzig claims that Srila Prabhupada wanted Herzig to kill him by administering poison).

Reports that Srila Prabhupada asked that his sister Pishima be brought to take charge of cooking his foods also testifies that Srila Prabhupada wanted to control Himself the handling of his food. Since Srila Prabhupada had no more trust in his secretaries, he called his sister Pishima to Mayapur and ordered that she cook for him. Prabhupada wanted her to personally supervise all aspects of his food preparation including purchasing bhoga and cooking. But Tamal Krishna, Bhakti Caru and the others, ultimately DID NOT ALOW Pishima to cook for Srila Prabhupada. Pishima was denied by Tamal & Co. They wanted to control themselves the food and medicines for Srila Prabhupada.

Will be continued on Part 4

Srila Prabhupada left this mortal world on November 14, 1977.
But He lives forever in His instructions, and His followers will always live with Him.

"He reasons ill who tells that Vaishnavas die
While thou art living still in sound!
The Vaishnavas die to live, and living try
To spread the Holy Name around"
(Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Thākura)
