Some pix of Gadadhar

Someone asked for pictures of Gadadhar Pran. These were taken by Anadi Krishna Das, who was there at the same time I was. He took many videos during the time there. I imagine he has posted some of them, only the most flattering ones I hope.

A few more picture are at
http://gaudiya-bhakti.blogspot.com/

Some selected videos about
navadvip bhakti will be posted in the tube. By 1Gb after some hours the connection colapsed.
I have to cut the videos into small ones.

Thank you very much Anadi. Sorry for not answering your personal emails.

These pictures are nice and they soften my heart to Gadadhar. I still insist that he is a special person and that Gadadhar Pandit and Vishnupriya Devi have sent him to reveal their bhakti to the English-speaking world.

Jai Vishnupriya Prananath Gaura !

do we have any pictures of the paintings alone? they look superb!

Jagat said...

Perhaps Anadi could give a URL. GP is actually fundamentally an artist, even his bhajan is visual by nature, but he says that he does not really like painting! These paintings were commissioned by Tamohara Prabhu.

Dear Jagat
I like you very much, as a person, even though I don't understand your type of sadhan... and I have to aknowledge, I still didn't read all you wrote on sahajaism related to gaudiya vaishnavism.

I've put a small video about Gadhadar reading from Omia Nimai Charita, I think.

Not exactly the best images of me, with my missing tooth. I would have delayed taking care of that!

Anadi, please post more videos!

Jagat said...

Good idea, but Anadi, no more toothless Jagadananda, prithee. I suggest posting some of Gadadhar's classes on Vishnupriya or the Gutika. I changed the file names, so I don't have the right dates.

jijaji said...

Whatta mean, I think the toothless Jagat is quite becoming..

LOL

So this is Gadadhar? I've heard he has married a much younger bengali woman. In a previous post you quote him, "Stay here and I will help you find a Bengali Vaishnava girl who will be a real bhajan partner". I hope he was not advising you to get a minor bengali girl as sexual partner. That would be very disturbing.

Jagat said...

Indeed, he had some pre-pubescent Nepali girls he had purchased on the white-slave market that he could not use himself, as his harem was running out of space, so he was willing to let me have them for a good price. They were pretty trained up to dress like Nadiya nagaris and call him "Gora Gora," but he assured me that they could be reprogrammed to dress like gopis and call me "Krishna Krishna."

It is all a question of money. Those sex slaves don't come cheap. What's a poor guy like me supposed to do?

Well, I can only confirm it.
Some two girls, one from Hungary and one from South Afrika, came to Gadai Gauranga Kunja, because they were told a similar story, as they were staying in the ISKCon headquarters in Mayapur.

I was quite astonished to see Gadhadar Pran Das being disturbed by hearing this kind of stories about him (even if they are false) put on the market by "some good willing westerners".

We care too much about what people say.
Jagat doesn't care ...so much, ...
We care because we expect something from the people, and we shouldn't.

Since there seems to have been some misunderstanding elsewhere about the above comments, I would like to say that the above statement about Nepali girls was intended as a joke. I admit that it was in poor taste, provoked by a poor taste suggestion from the anonymous poster.

I was going to remove both, but I have decided that it is really against my principles to do so.
