The ICOCP’s Official Decision on Dhanurdhara Swami


ISKCON leaders responsible for setting priorities in Srila Prabhupada’s movement grossly neglected the proper care of ISKCON’s children. This neglect did much to bring about the sufferings reported in this case, and therefore all of ISKCON leadership must accept its share of the burden for what happened in the Vrndavan gurukula. Although Dhanurdhara Maharaja is responsible for his misbehavior, he was not singly responsible for the neglect and tyranny in the school. ISKCON leaders demonstrated appalling neglect of social concerns, and this was very apparent in the dearth of resources provided to the Vrndavan gurukula.”

This is a link to a PDF document of the ICOCP official decision by the ISKCON Central Office on Child Protection regarding Dhanurdhara Swami’s case from October 28, 1999.  Over the past few years there has been considerable confusion and misunderstanding surrounding the details of this document. I hope that making a link here will assist in familiarizing people with its content.

NOTE: Please be aware that this link takes you to Dhanurdhara Swami’s blogsite. Once there you can find several other related articles, written by DDS, that may be of interest.
