DO NOT JOIN THIS CULT OR ASSOCIATE WITH ANY OF ITS MEMBERS. IT IS INSIDIOUS AND THEY CONTINUE TO TOLERATE CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE, ELDERLY NEGLECT, EMBEZZLEMENT OF ALL DONATIONS FOR THEIR LIFESTYLE, VIOLENCE AND MURDER! You don't believe me? GOOGLE IT. It is all over the internet: https://www.google.com/search?q=murder+conspiracy+acquittal+plea+bargain+Radhanath+Swami+iskcon&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8
They are all "DharmaDvajis:
“Bhaktivinode Thakur in his 'Bhaktyaloka' gives the following advice :
(Leave ASAP and do not get sucked in)
'One should give up the association with dharmadvajis, the hypocritically devout, with special care. Those who accept the external signs of dharma but who do not actually follow dharma are called dharmadvajis. There are two types of dharmadvajis, the hypocrites and the fools, or the cheaters and the cheated. Such hypocrisy in jnana kanda and karma kanda is also condemned. In devotional service this hypocrisy ruins everything. Better associate with sense enjoyers for in this world there is no worse association than the dharmadvaji. The deceitful dharmadvajis accept the external signs of dharma with a desire to cheat the world, and to fulfill their crooked desires they cheat the foolish by helping them in their rascaldom. Some of them become gurus and others become disciples, and by trickery they accumulate wealth, women, false prestige and material assets. If one gives up the association of such crooked hypocrites, then he can honestly engage in devotional service. Honest worship is the only way to obtain Krsna’s mercy.” — Srila Bhaktivinode Thakur
After careful investigation along with other members of the material SICKON organization (not the the real ethereal ISKCON), Yadunanandan Pada has left the organization in protest of criminal activity including Child Abuse, elderly neglect, embezzlement of all donations, all which continue to be tolerated, swept under the rug and the perpetrators continue to receive positions of power and opportunities to continue their crimes again and again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvlRAyM3p4Q
It is to be understood that the good intentions and esoteric deep teachings brought to the West by Bhaktivedanta Swami in 1965, has been maliciously turned into a dangerous cult for power and money by a number of his followers and their followers (who to this date continue to support them by their involvement) after the Guru's passing in 1977. It is all now about power, money and 'hush moneys,' to perpetuate a series of agendas for power within the organization at any cost, including murder, embezzlement of donations and infiltration by various mafia and RICO type individuals—in the end condoning even child abuse. If one tolerates them by going to their festivals and gatherings, one is supporting them. Period—like it or not.
Please heed, digest and share this as my loving advise to all cult members and newcomers. If after watching the video above in its entirety, paying attention to the subtle nuances of complicity and tolerance, the reader does not see the ethical and karmic complicity into these crimes, then I would have to advice that such reader clearly deserves their fate for lack of spiritual wherewithal (Adhikar). Good luck with that :-( Here are the three very basic thoughts/arguments to ponder on the insidiousness of this complicity:
A.) An innocent person looking for bread walks into WallyMart to get groceries. There is a picket line outside with allegations of children in sweatshops over in China manufacturing most of the goods for this chain. S/he can go down the block to the other store but it may be a little more expensive or out of the way. S/he crosses the picket line and shops at WallyMart today, and next week, and the week after. Years pass by and the evening News and Picket Lines and other historical evidence continue to come out and corroborate that WallyMart continues to use children in sweatshops. S/he continues to shop at WallyMart.
QUESTION: At which point is s/he no longer innocent?
B.) A 'conscientious animal rights vegetarian' person likes the coffee at McDonalds. S/he justifies that s/he is only buying the coffee and not the burgers.
QUESTION: At which point did S/he cross the line?
C.) An innocent member of the Hare Krsna Movement became aware three decades ago (with allegations all over the internet) of an ongoing series of racketeering and asset mismanagement at the cost of its members' civil and human rights. S/he finds out over the years about the documented neglect in lack of their Care all around, despite millions of dollars, Temple Presidents receiving 80k salaries, "hush money" being handed out, embezzlement left and right, investigations, charges against mismanagement and misappropriation of funds, even proven allegations of child abuse—all being covered up or swept under the rug for PR and internal processing only—for the last three decades. Four decades later 2016 rolls out with the secretive sale of the Brooklyn Temple for $60MM with clearly questionable activity and Mayapur erupts into riots, beatings, death threats, exiles, bribery, alleged $5MM embezzlement, alleged Vrndavan sex with minors in the schools, the alleged 'Chakra Case" of drug dealing to the school kids, plus reports that the man who burnt down the homes of local indigenous families because they would not sell their land to be resold to Mayapur, has been appointed and endorsed by a famous prominent US and global Swami guru, with BTW ties back to New Vrndavan and the murders there. (...and if the reader did not know all these allegations, you now do!) So, s/he, the innocent member of the Hare Krsna movement, looks over this overall 4 decade picture and makes certain decisions. Knowing that s/he could go worship at another temple or have a home program, or change sangas, instead makes the conscious decision to continue giving to the local chapter of the above organization his/her time, his/her exemplary presence, donations, validation, outreach, encouragement and actual service support, etc. ...
QUESTION: at which point did s/he cross the line into complicit?
If the reader's answer is never, the reader needs Ted Patrick's deprogramming or professional psychological help...
One can argue this logic 'til the proverbial cows come home, but nothing changes the fact that, "to tolerate is to encourage." — a.c. Bhaktivedanta Swami

...that is to say, if you have heard a swami (a monk in the renounced order of life) emphasize in their lectures, "I do not have a bank account, I have never had a bank account," while having control or 'say' over massive resources. manpower and centers, and you have not gotten the above point, ...you are being indoctrinated!
Wishing you well and better association
