The more critical among us have given up hope, remaining nominally connected to ISKCON or not connected at all.
About Purnacandra Swami
Purnacandra Goswami, a disciple of Srila Prabhupada, joined ISKCON in New York city in 1976. He travelled throughout the United States distributing books on the Radha Damodar bus party. Noticing that many new devotees were leaving the ISKCON communities due to what he saw as lack of training, he began conducting tutorials of the Bhagavad-Gita in 1991 which later developed into regular Bhakti Sastri seminars at the Bhakti Vedanta Manor and the London temple. The years 1992 to 1997 brought about more of the same and he began teaching in other countries including Ireland, France, India, Latvia, Lithuania, the Philippines and Russia. In 1997 he moved to Russia and continued teaching and counseling devotees here and in Eastern Europe. He has authored a book entitled “Unspoken Obstacles On The Path To Bhakti” and he has written and narrated the “Gitamrita”, a dramatic reading of the Bhagavad-Gita.
