Pragosha Dasa, GBC Member, Resigns
ISKCON News Staff
On July 20th, Praghosa Dasa, a Governing Body Commission (GBC) member of ISKCON since 2001, resigned from the GBC. He made his resignation public in a video entitled “An Honor and a Privilege” on his personal YouTube page. In the video, Praghosa das explains his resignation is due to his disagreement with a GBC decision that is in process regarding Lokanath Swami and his position as initiating guru in ISKCON. Praghosa Dasa outlined his reasons for stepping down based on that decision not being made, in his opinion, “on the principles of integrity and fairness” nor as “pleasing to Srila Prabhupada” and therefore expressed his inability to live up to the GBC’s code of conduct; which binds all members to support the decisions made by the Body, if he remained a member.
