“There is nothing more sinful than untruthfulness. Because of this, mother earth once said, “I can bear any heavy thing except a person who is a liar.” Srimad Bhagavatam 8.20.4
Please excuse my delayed response to Madhu Pandit dasa’s text, “Challenging the Bangalore Correspondent”. It takes longer to write non-fiction than to write fiction.
Generally when we interact with genuine devotees, the expectation is that it be characterized by “simplicity.” By that we mean “straightforward” dealings devoid of duplicity (Bg 17.16 and Purport). Therefore we accept what they say or write as being true. But, can we do the same with Madhu Pandit dasa? Can we take whatever he says or writes on face value?
To decide that, let’s study his history of actions and statements.
Is Madhu Pandit dasa Trustworthy?
This link shows how Madhu Pandit dasa lied about his educational qualifications.
Then Madhu Pandit lied on oath in a court affidavit that he only learned about the Rtvik philosophy in 1998, and this compelled him take his course of (illegal) activities. But in actuality, he had known about it for many years before 1998 and had repudiated Rtvikism. But when he later found that he needed support for his illegal activities, he embraced Rtvikism and became a Rtvik evangelist. He used the Rtvik controversy as a convenient expedient to carry out his crimes. But Rtviks like Sattvik dasa, Adridharana’s former right hand man, told us in 2006 that “Madhu Pandit is worse than the GBC.” For details click here.
