Bhakti Charu implicated in Srila Prabhupadas poisoning

Bhakticharu Swami is a prime suspect in Srila Prabhupada’s poisoning: he was there when it happened, and he is contradicting his own recorded statements from 1977. That constitutes lying. Why is he lying? Thus he brings great suspicion upon himself. Bhakticharu has implicated himself in the poisoning by his dishonest, tricky statements. Any intelligent person can see he has something to hide.
Why was it in 1977 that he took seriously Srila Prabhupada’s talking of being poisoned, but did nothing about it, and now, decades later, he pretends that in 1977 he did not take Srila Prabhupada seriously? And in 2001 say it was alarming to think the food he was giving Srila Prabhupada was poisoned? Too many contradictions… Flip-flopping stories. Any crime investigator would zero in on Bhakticharu as top priority for intense interrogations.


“One day an unusual, young Bengali man came to Mayapur. Named Kishore Bhattacharya, he was a Vaishnava from birth and obviously intelligent. He spoke impeccable English and was also fluent in German because he was a [chemistry] student in a German university. With simply a little coaxing, he surrendered to Srila Prabhupada and quickly got initiated, receiving the name Ksira-cora-gopinatha dasa. On several occasions he kindly translated conversations between Pisima and me. Months later, Srila Prabhupada awarded this cultured young man sannyasa, changing his name to Bhakticharu Swami.” (Mahamaya dasi, Prabhupada Is Coming!)


From the time he joined ISKCON in early 1977, Bhakticharu was closely associated with Tamal and Bhavananda, who were both major influences on him. His first years in ISKCON were under the direct tutelage of both Tamal and Bhavananda. He took over Bhavananda’s room in the Lotus Building after Bhavananda left in 1987. He would sometimes visit with Tamal in Dallas. During Srila Prabhupada’s last nine months, Tamal was Srila Prabhupada’s personal secretary, and Bhakticharu was Tamal’s assistant for the last eight months, always present by bringing meals, drinks, medicines, and so on. Bhakticharu translated the Bengali and Hindi conversations of the day for Tamal, and acted as a nurse, caretaker, servant.
