Austin Swami Prakashanand Saraswati

Austin Swami Prakashanand Saraswati

In a day when every indiscretion that can be pinned on a Christian minister or believer is trumpeted widely and often by the Mainstream News Media, it would be easy to overlook reports quietly and purposely slipped through by night regarding indiscretions by leaders of other religions.

Prakashanand Saraswati, 82, founding swami of the Barsana Dham ashram near Austin, Texas, is currently “on the lamb” after being convicted of sexual molestation of two young women, then minors, who were living at the ashram’s 200-acre compound.

See “Warrant issued against Hindu guru convicted of molestation,” in The Times of India, March 8, 2011.

According to the ashram’s Web site, “His Divinity Swami Saraswati,” also known affectionately as Shree Swamiji, “can expound upon any spiritual topic with such a clarity it is as if he is describing a visual account.  His scriptural understanding is unequalled and his books are unique examples of his exceeding knowledge related to the science of the material and the Divine dimensions.  The warmth of Shree Swamiji’s love melts the hearts of those who listen to him and drawing close to him opens the path to God.”

I am reminded once again, that there is only One Way to God, Jesus Christ, and a multitude of wrong ways.  The way of self-gratification is always the way of the flesh, and those who “walk after the flesh” (2 Peter 2:10) rather than the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:16) will never see God.

  1. So are you saying that it is OK for Christian priests to molest children because they are doing it through Jesus and not for self gratification?

    Absolutely this swami should be arrested and convicted, but if a Christian priest does it then it is just as bad and he should too.

    • Now I cannot believe that you seriously think that is what I am saying. I noted that failures of Christian leaders are trumpeted by the Media, while other entities often “get a pass” on widespread exposure. Christians are a target, pagan religions often are not. For wrongdoing I excuse no one from getting their due according to the law, nor for sin as God wills. I only note that discrepancies exist.

      • H.d.Swami Prakashanand Saraswati was 100% falsely accused and convicted truly in an Christian inquisition style where some hundreds years ago it was enough that a neighbor accused someone based on the fact that his/her cow stopped producing milk, so the accused one was automatically found guilty of witchcraft and after a process and tortures, he/she was usually burned on stock and his/her possessions were confiscated by Church. Now they cannot do it anymore but they kept the same mentality in convicting Swamiji based on ONLY personal accusations by two adult women who were seeking revenge for having been refused to live in Barsana Dham, without any interrogation nor witnesses. Actually after the book by Rishika Xcult it is very obvious that those women plus Rishika are financially and otherwise supported by some fanatic Christian group that evidently hates the two books by H.D.Swami Prakashanand Saraswati: “Formation of the New Testament & the History of Christianity” and “The true history and the religion of India”( the second one reveals Christian English plots to destroy Hindu religions and culture during British reign).
        Rishika aka Karen Jonson on her page(likely sponsored by those fanatics) under resources (photo gallery) shows the picture of the first book with her comment that Swamiji bashes Christianity in that book. So the process, verdict and outrageously hateful, dishonest book by Rishika Xcult are part and parcel of one big plot to destroy Swamiji and Barsana Dham as some Christians do not like them in Austin Texas. That is typical Christian intolerance and hypocrisy. Maybe even Karen Jonson was for some time in Barsana Dham on the sole purpose that later on she can do all these ugly false dishonest accusations. Her book qualifies for perfect hate speech .
        None of Kripaluji’s and Swamiji’s followers even for a second believed in all these lies.
        But as a European/Polish person I’m absolutely shocked at the PERFECT injustice of Austin court. It reminds of both: inquisition and communistic methods. It is almost surrealistic that in 21st century in USA such horrible injustice can so easily take place. Shame on you guys!!!!
