    Among the Hare Krishna, if one is able to use deception to get a karmi to perform a service for Krishna, does that aid in their spiritual advancement, thus rendering the act of deception to be acceptable?

    That is, in blunt terms, is it acceptable to lie to outsiders so long as it advances the goals of the Hare Krishna religion?

    The Answer is Yes Yes Yes ---until he is caught. Arrested. Or even assulted for the affrontary. Of course, no one will associate with him back at the temple once he is caught. And then he will be put on a "Burn-List". Then he is on his own. he must avoid the "David carradine syndrome" for the rest of his life! LOL

    BTW, that is a redundency within a redundency. To Preform a "service"? Sweep the temple corridor? Do mean give a donation in ex-change for a copy of the Bhagavad-gita?***

    For knowledge on a particular subject one must approach those who are in the know.

    There is no such policy in the Hare Krishna Movement.

    There is no hiarchy in the Hare Krishna Movement.

    There is no central head-quarters in the Hare Krishna Movement.

    There is no central leader in the Hare Krishna Movement.

    IMOH, and in my usual provocative style, I would say:

    A Krishna devotees seeks to purge themselves of karmic re-action, and association with the un-washed masses through retreats, sabbaticals, and week-end stays at a bonefide Radha-Krishna Temple ashrams where ever one may be found, tand thus learn bhakti-yoga so as to leave the temple in live as a householder.

    Problem is: You're on your own recognisance at the temple and when you leave the ashram ---that is the 'lassie-faire' style that is universally found at Radha-Krishna Temples world-wide.

    if you meet a gung-ho savvy innovative marketeer hawking something that "YOU MUST HAVE FOR YOUR OWN GOOD" ----I guess it just the "American Way".

    This is what a Hare Krishna chanting Krishna Devotee learns from scripture:

    Isa Upanishad Mantra 13
    "It is said that one result is obtained by worshiping the supreme cause of all causes and that another result is obtained by worshiping what is not supreme. All this is heard from the undisturbed authorities, who clearly explained it."

    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
    For we MUST know that a Hare Krishna Movement Member Must Spread "Krishna" Awareness. "Krishna" Awareness. "Krishna" Awareness.

    *** The Upanishads indirectly draw our attention to the primeval Lord, Shree Krishna, but the Bhagavad-gita, which is the summary of all the Upanishads, directly points to Shree Krishna. Therefore one should hear about Krishna, as He is, by hearing from the Bhagavad-gita.

    You have told me everything I need to know about Hare Krishna. The only morality is "don't get caught".
