Know Your Demons: Rakshashas, Changlings and Shapeshifters!
BY: DHARMAPAD DAS
Dec 09, 2011 BRAZIL (SUN) In the 16th chapter of Bhagavad Gita, Shree Krishna tells us that "… the demoniac, who are lost unto themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible acts meant to destroy the world." Certainly, the misguiding hand of the demoniac is seen across the face of the Earth, prominent in every society.
Take India as an example. So often nowadays, we experience how Western-oriented Hindus criticize traditional Vedic dharma in the name of secularism and progress. Westernized Hindus espouse not only Western intellectual thought, but they ape popular Western culture as well; this is especially true since the insertion of radio and television into even small, countryside villages. It seems as if an element of India's population is undermining its own culture from within, almost as if it were some kind of fifth column against its own, dharmic culture.
On the surface, this tendency seems simply to be brought about by the onslaught of foreign culture as history has recorded it; first by the Muslim invasions, later by the British, and now by globalization and telecommunication. But if we scratch the surface a little, we might find a deeper, more remote cause. A nice clue is found in Varaha Purana, as quoted by Kedaranath Dutt, Bhaktivinode Thakur, in his book Jaiva Dharma:
Raksasah kalim ashritya
In a broader sense, we can interpret this verse as referring to infiltration of human society and modern institutions by demoniac elements of the Kali Yuga. And let's not be impersonal about it, infiltration by demoniac elements begs the questions: by whom, how, and wherefrom?
This idea of beings from other realms taking birth on Earth with agendas is not unheard of. In the tenth canto of Shrimad Bhagavatam, Shree Vishnu instructed the demigods to take birth ahead of the Krishna avatar in order to assist Him in His pastimes--
"After all the demigods offered the Purusa-sukta prayer to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, they apparently heard no response. Then Lord Brahma personally sat in meditation, and there was a message-transmission from Lord Vishnu to Brahma. Brahma then broadcast the message to the demigods. That is the system of receiving Vedic knowledge. The Vedic knowledge is received first by Brahma from the Supreme Personality of Godhead, through the medium of the heart. As stated in the beginning of Srimad-Bhagavatam, tene brahma hrda: the transcendental knowledge of the Vedas was transmitted to Lord Brahma through the heart. Here also, in the same way, only Brahma could understand the message transmitted by Lord Vishnu, and he broadcast it to the demigods for their immediate action. The message was: ‘The Supreme Personality of Godhead will appear on the earth very soon along with His supreme powerful potencies, and as long as He remains on the earth planet to execute His mission of annihilating the demons and establishing the devotees, the demigods should also remain there to assist Him. They should all immediately take birth in the family of the Yadu dynasty, wherein the Lord will also appear in due course of time.'''(Krsna Book, Chapter One)
The other way around, however, it seems that asuras, too, either take birth as residents of Bharat or that they express their influence through earthly beings, as we will see in the case of Kamsa and Duryodhana.
"After being thus informed by Narada about the appearance of the demigods in different families Kamsa at once became alert. He understood that since the demigods had already appeared, Lord Vishnu must be coming soon."
"Kamsa was made aware of his previous birth by the grace of Narada. He learned that in his previous birth he was a demon of the name Kalanemi and that he was killed by Visnu. Having taken his birth in the Bhoja family, he decided to become the deadly enemy of the Yadu dynasty; Krsna was going to take birth in that family, and Kamsa was very much afraid that he would be killed by Krsna, just as he was killed in his last birth." (Krsna Book, Chapter One).
Even if the Hindus who raise their hands against their own culture are not consciously Raksasas, they might not be traditional Hindus in the sense that they might not have evolved to their present position through pious births. In fact, if they decry Vedic culture, then they certainly haven't evolved piously because the pious soul is naturally sympathetic with the Vedic version. And the above-cited verse from Varaha Purana does state that, in this yuga, demons are born into Hindu families.
We will draw on the presentation of Dr. Richard L. Thompson (Sadaputa dasa), in his book Alien Identities (P - 241), in order to investigate the case of King Duryodhana: "King Duryodhana once had an encounter with some Ganharvas who had cordoned off an area around a lake for recreational purposes and had blocked Duryodhana's army from entering. When Duryodhana tried to enter anyway, a fierce battle took place, and he was captured by the Gandharva forces. At this point, Arjuna, who was staying nearby, used his political connections with the Gandharva to free Duryodhana. Arjuna and his brothers had been driven into exile by Duryodhana, but Arjuna intervened to save him from the Ganharvas on the grounds that he was a relative and a human being.
Duryodhana was humiliated at being saved by a person he had scorned and mistreated as an enemy, and he decided to give up his everything and fast until death. However, it seems that other parties had long-standing plans for Duryodhana and they weren't at all pleased by this turn of events.
'Thereupon the Daityas and Danavas, hearing of his decision, the gruesome denizens of the nether world, who had been defeated by the gods, now, in the knowledge that Duryodhana would wreak their party, performed a sacrificial rite in order to summons him.' (Mahabharat)
Once Duryodhana was in the presence of the Danavas, they explained to him that his birth on Earth had been arranged in advance as part of their plan. His great bodily strength and his near immunity to weapons were arranged by their manipulations. He therefore shouldn't spoil everything by taking his life. Daityas and Danavas, taking birth as Earthly heroes, would assist him in his battle with the Pandavas. The Danavas also pointed out that they would use mind control to make sure that this battle had the desired outcome.
‘After it was over, King Duryodhana thought that it had all been a dream, Bharat, and he was left with this thought: ‘I shall vanquish the Pandus in battle.'" Thus was Duryodhana empregnated with asuric agendas.
Another clue is provided in the recently discovered phenomena of UFOs. Again we will draw on the comparison given by Dr. Richard Thomson (Sadaputa dasa) in Alien Identities (P 224 - 225). There, the good doctor points out the tenth-canto Bhagavatam narrative of Salva's Wonderful Aircraft and the similarities with modern UFOs. "A number of interesting parallels with UFO accounts can be found in the story of Salva in the tenth canto of the Bhagavat Purana. 'The aircraft occupied by Salva was very mysterious. It was so extraordinary that sometimes many airplanes would appear to be in the sky, and sometimes there were apparently none. Sometimes the plane was visible, and sometimes not visible, and the warriors of the Yadu dynasty were puzzled about the whereabouts of the peculiar airplane. Sometimes they would see the airplane on the ground, sometimes flying in the sky, sometimes resting on the peak of a hill, and sometimes floating on the water. The wonderful aircraft flew in the sky like a whirling firebrand- it was not steady even for a moment.'
The flight characteristics of this "airplane" resemble those of UFOs in many respects ... UFOs are well known for this kind of behavior, and they are also described as hovering over water and then abruptly taking off."
Modern accounts of abductions similar to that of Duryodhana's, in craft similar to that of Salva simply abound. In the above-mentioned book by Dr. Thompson as well as Secret Life by David M. Jacobs, PH.D., scores of cases are investigated in a serious and statistical manner. In the Jacobs book, for example, UFO abduction victims are interviewed separately with no knowledge of or contact with other such victims; even so, they uniformly describe similar experiences. Their descriptions of UFO interiors are also astonishingly uniform. The film "Communion" depicts the true story of the former New York playwright – Whitley Strieber – who had abduction experiences and was influenced. Typically, abduction victims are often influenced by some suggestions made hypnotically, literally made to forget the experience by some kind of hypnotic suggestion, and then set down again on the surface of the Earth with an agenda to carry out, as in the case of Duryodhana. Such unfortunate souls become little more than marionettes of beings little understood by them.
As we can imagine, the abduction victims who receive suggestions and agendas are often influential people, such as politicians, musicians and authors. Why would the demons go to such lengths to influence run-of-the-mill citizens? By the way, wasn't ISKCON in its heyday, with its millions-per-year book distribution, worthy of the attention of such demoniac influence?
Armed with Vedic descriptions and definitions, we can understand these UFO beings to be none other than the Daityas and Danavas of Vedic lore. Their influence did not stop in Vedic times. It would be naive of us to think that, even though during the Dvarpara Yuga the asuras made such an impact, they now exert no influence in the Kali Yuga proper. If anything, their influence has been greater in this yuga that in the past. Due to their manipulations, the once world-wide Vedic culture has been truncated again and again, and the off-shoots transformed into the materialistic cultures we have witnessed over the last several thousand years.
Genetic collection and manipulation, though, do seem to be the principal activity of these UFO-borne Daityas and Danavas. Women are their main abduction victims, in approximately 80% of the cases, according to Secret Life by Jacobs. Biological probing, extraction of the human egg, plus artificial insemination, incubation, birthing and nursing are their main interests. The same women, once (genetically) identified, are preyed upon again and again for the purpose of egg extraction.
DNA seems acts as a via medium between the subtle astral plane, where consciousness dwells, and the physical world. In this way, their identification and cultivation of certain genetic types comes to make sense - certain DNA strains open the body up to manipulation by these Daityas and Danavas, currently known as reptilians and the Grays. In fact, the current genetic collection activities could even have the purpose of developing suitable bodies for occupation by demoniac, reptilian souls who have not yet incarnated; this would relieve them of the necessity of having to manipulate unreliable human beings who have already taken birth. Reports of large nurseries suggest that a whole program of human-Daitya or Danava breeding is ongoing. Perhaps "Hell will be raised" after the next world war and the bred legions will come topside to take over and manage the surface of the planet.
William Michael Mott, in his book Caverns, Cauldrons, and Concealed Creatures, points out that the same genetic breeding and abduction scenario has been recorded in European folklore from centuries ago; and that it has been perpetrated by underground, demoniac species, such as trolls, gnomes, elves, fairies, brownies and goblins. "Fairytales are also replete with accounts of identical replacements for people, called changelings, who, upon being discovered or somehow discomfited, wither into a sickly imitation of the person impersonated. Similarly, doppelgangers or doubles, sometimes called ‘the fetch,' are numerous in Northern European accounts. One of the recurring themes is the confusion of a would-be rescuer who is determined to save someone from abduction to the underworld of Faerie; the rescuer is confronted with a group or line-up of beings identical in appearance to the abductee, and he must choose the genuine human being from the line-up.
All of this begs an obvious question about the nature to which purloined genetics might be being put, if indeed such abductions have been occurring over the centuries, and it brings into question whether the process of cloning is as recent as currently believed. What would be the purpose of such cloning and crossbreeding experiments, if not to isolate and perpetuate certain genetic characteristics and abilities?" [to isolate and perpetuate for the demons]

The foreboding nature of these activities is heightened by descriptions in the Puranic literature defining the Daityas as being residents of a Netherworld. Although this could refer to some galactic abode below the orbital plane of the solar system, reports of underground destinations by abduction victims suggests that Daityas dwell within our very planet. The Bible, too, defines that demons live in worlds beneath the surface of the planet. Consider one of the more recent descriptions from the book Extraterrestrial Visitations: True Accounts of Contact by Preston Dennett:
Taken to an Underground Base
"The standard abduction scenario usually involves a person being taken inside a UFO and examined by grey-type extraterrestrials. But again, this scenario is not as common as many might believe. Consider the following case, in which a young man was abducted, not by grey-type ETs, but by praying-mantis type ETs. Nor was he taken inside a UFO. In fact, he recalled being taken to an apparent underground base!
"In 1967, twelve-year-old, Paul Nelson (pseudonym) was visiting the island of Catalina with his parents. Also along was Paul's best friend, Michael (pseudonym.) The two boys decided to go inside their boat and read some new comic books. Suddenly, however, they both experienced an episode of missing time. Their next memory was of waking up the next morning. While Paul was unable to convince his parents that anything unusual had happened, both Paul and his friend knew that the event was strange.
"Two weeks later, Paul was alone in his Reseda, California home when he had another strange experience. He was alone in his room when the door began to rattle. He jumped up and threw it open. To his shock, he saw the shadow of a small figure running down the hallway. He chased after it, but found nothing.
"Paul didn't know how to explain these experiences and didn't connect it to the UFO phenomenon. However, afterwards he developed an interest in UFOs and began to read up on the subject.
"Many years later, he grew up, married, became a doctor and had two children. Then he had a UFO sighting of a distant object in the daytime sky. This renewed his interest in UFOs. He began reading about the missing time aspect of UFO encounters when he realized that he had experienced missing time.
"Intrigued, he eventually underwent hypnosis to recover his lost memories. Having read about UFOs, he expected to find that he had a frightening encounter, during which he would be examined by grey-type ETs, aboard a UFO using highly technological equipment. Instead, it was nothing like this.
"As Paul underwent the regression, his first surprise was that he was not aboard a UFO, but instead appeared to be in an underground base. Says Paul, "I was taken to a round-walled room. It seemed to me more underground than it did onboard a ship. The walls had kind of rock-like facet to them. And I was on a table. Yeah, rock-like walls rather than metallic craft-type walls. It gave the impression that I was in a cavern [rather] than in a shipIt was more of an underground feeling that's true. That is a little anomalous."
Under hypnosis, Paul recalled his friend, Michael nearby, also being examined. His next surprise was that the beings were what he expected. Says Paul, ‘The beings weren't the typical greys, they were more the 'Praying Mantis' type, as I later understood. The eyes were slightly bigger than what is seen in the typical small grey, and a little more insectoid-like. They wore tight-fitting uniforms, I believe. There was even a color to them, but I can't remember what the color was, of the tight-fitting jump-suit like things. I think there was one in that bunch that had a tunic-type thing, with a looser fitting over it. I couldn't tell how tall they were because they were over me and I was on my back. So I couldn't give you the exact height. They didn't look particularly tall though.'"
There are more examples. On page 175 of Alien Identities, Dr. Richard L Thompson (http://www.afn.org/~bvi) relates an underground abduction case where the underground base was accessed through the sea by UFO: "On the evening of January 3, 1979, Cardenas, his friend Fernando Marti, and Marti's wife and 13 year old daughter were driving around on the outskirts of Hialeah, looking for a pig they could buy for a roast. They were unsuccessful, and on the way home their car engine quit.
The two men testified that the lights and starter wouldn't work, and so they got out and began to look under the hood. At this point, they suddenly saw red and violet alternating lights reflecting off the engine and heard a sound like ‘many bees' ... Filiberto felt paralyzed, and he began to rise in the air shouting ‘Don't take me, don't take me!' Later he recounted a strange and elaborate story that began when he awoke to find himself sitting, paralyzed, in the presence of a robot-like being and two men in tight-fitting suits. ... Filiberto said the alien beings looked quite human. They had elongated eyes with eyelashes, small flattened noses, long lipless mouths, and light beards. They also wore a symbol on the right of their chests, consisting of a serpent on a lazy X.
The story becomes even more extraordinary: The beings proceeded to take Filiberto to an underground base, traveling beneath the sea at high speed through a tunnel of ‘firmed water' that seemed to open in front of the craft so that water did not touch it. At the base, he met a human who was working with the aliens, and he was led through what seemed like a city."
Dr. Thompson goes on to relate that Filiberto had several experiences while in this underground base accessed through the sea, some of them biological, some of them suggestive of mind control, then he was finally dropped of again on the surface.
And here is another account of an underground UFO abduction: "Betty Andreason (Alien Identities, page 201) recalled being taken in a UFO through a tunnel bored through solid rock. This tunnel led through a strange landscape with a view of an ocean, a distant city and a pyramid."
An account from the Bhagavat Purana, Canto Nine, Canto 3, Texts 28 – 29, does not describe abductions, nor materialistic nor demoniac beings, but it does describe an underground kingdom, in this case an undersea one. "King Saryati begot three sons, named Uttanabarhi, Anarta and Bhurishena. From Anarta came a son named Revata. Oh Maharaj Parikshit, subduer of the enemies, this Revata constructed a kingdom known as Kushasthali in the depths of the ocean. There he lived and rules such tracts of land as Anarta, etc. He had 100 very nice sons, of whom the eldest was Kakudmi."
It seems that not all UFO abductees end up being taken to mother ships en route to different worlds, and that not all who remain in this world stay on the surface- some end up below the surface!
But taking birth in human bodies, and underground manipulation of the surface world through lackeys that do their bidding, are not the only ways that the demoniac implement their agendas among human societies. There are the shapeshifters!
A fine example is given in the 13th chapter of the Aranyakanda of Valmiki's Ramayan. Maricha received Ravanna at his abode and Ravanna spoke to him thusly: "Maricha, Rama, who along with his wife has been angrily banished by his father, that weak and lowest of the kshatriyas; and he has destroyed all the Rakshashas. He is vile, crooked, haughty and fearless, greedy and of bad character. He has no religion and always does evil to others. That stupid fellow, without any provocation, forcibly cut my sister Surpanakha's nose and ears. Now, I intend to carry his wife Sita to my abode. Please help me in that undertaking. Oh hero, if you be on my side along with my brother Kumbhakarna and others, then I am not afraid of the gods. You are most competent, come to my assistance. There is none equal to you in might, resourcefulness or in devising means; you are a warrior and a wizard. Uncle, it is for this reason that I have come to you, and first hear what you will have to do to for me. Assuming the form of a golden deer with silver spots, frisk about Sita. At your sight, Sita will surely induce Ram and Lakshman to secure you. When those two will be out on that mission, I shall easily carry away Sita, as Rahu steals the moonshine at ease. Rama will be greatly weakened by the separation of Sita and then I shall succeed in destroying him easily."
Ravanna-the-demon wanted to employ shapeshifter magic in order to undermine Dharma Personified on the surface of the Earth. What is past is prologue!
By the same token, in Chapter 18 of the Aranyakanda, we are informed that "Ravanna assumed the guise of a mendicant." And in Chapter 20, we see that "Ravanna pressed his palms in anger and assumed his own form."
But we don't have to go all the way back to the Treta Yuga to find examples of shapeshifting demons carrying out their agendas. Again, we may turn to Richard L. Thompson's Alien Identities, page 300, to find examples from European folklore from the middle ages. "Here is a traditional Celtic story in which the abduction theme is combined with a visit from another world. The Sidhe-King Manannan Mac Lir once became tired of his wife Fand, and she went to Ireland with her sister Liban with the hope of marrying the hero Cuchulainn. They took the form of two birds and rested on a lake near Ulster where Cuchulainn could see them while hunting. The hero tried to capture them but failedand, feeling depressed by this, he sat down by a menhir (a megalithic stone monument) and went to sleep. Then he saw two women, dressed in green and crimson cloaks, who alternately struck him with a whip-like object. After this, he took to his bed with a strange illness that no Druid or doctor in Ireland could cure.
For a year, Cuchulain lay sick without speaking to anyone. Then an unknown messenger came to him and sang a song promising to cure him of his malady if he would accept the invitation of the daughters of Aed Abrat to visit them in the otherworld. He returned to the place where he had taken sick and again saw the woman with the green cloak. She identified herself as Liban and asked him to go with her to the plain of delight to fight Labraid's enemies. She promised him that as a reward, he would obtain Fand as his wife.
In due course, he did this, he overthrew Labraid's enemies and, and remained in the otherworld with Fand for a month. Then he returned to Ireland and immediately got into trouble with his wife Emer, who was exceedingly jealous of Fand. Emer obtained from the Druids a drink that caused Cuchulain to forget about the otherworld, and Manannan Mac Lir decided to take back his wife. Thus, Cuchulainn's abduction into the realm of Sidhe was brief. "
This is an excellent example as it has all the typical components: shapeshifter demons from the underworld that manipulate significant and influential humans on the surface in order to execute their own designs.
Gustavo Adolfo Becquer's The White Roe Deer is a matter of a fictional narration written in order to present certain truths. Becquer based his stories on motifs gathered from country folklore from the region of Soria and the mysterious and mystic Mount Moncayo, an area reputed to be the haunt of underworld creatures and spirits who protect the entrances (See a href="http://www.holloworbs.com/1815.htm" target="_blank">Spain's Mysterious Monte Moncayo). Though he may have heard folklore, that doesn't mean that such lore isn't true.
In this story, Garcés searches for the truth behind the laughing animals he encounters in the woods after hearing the incredible stories about them during an afternoon hunt. He ends up shooting the beautiful white roe deer with his sure arrow but, upon impact, he hears human cries and comes to see that he has killed Constanza, the lovely daughter of the influential Don Dionís, the woman of his dreams, who was always made a point of noting the activities and movements of the village hunters. She was the White doe, and she was the shapeshifter.
What Becquer is trying to pass on is simply this; that Constanza was a shapeshifter who held an influential position in her surrounding and who would gather information on the comings and goings of the humans. This, of course, is a theme that deserves our thoughtfulness and curiosity.
It is not hard to tell that the influence of dharmic culture, fostered by the demigods, is on the wane. The demigods reciprocate with us in relation to yagña and piety. But yagña is not properly performed in the Kali Yuga; for one thing, the Sanskrit mantas are not properly chanted, and piety in general is fast disappearing. To what degree will the demigods and their followers oppose the demoniac insertion in favor of an earthly, human population which is fast becoming as materialistic as the demons themselves!
It is time for us all to make a connection between the modern, materialistic seductions of Western culture and the manipulations of the asuras; but we could start with the Hindus, as the recent changes in their society have been so dramatic. The Hindus have to ask themselves if this is what they really want. Do the descendents of Vedic culture want to play into the hands of asuric manipulators who undermine dharmic culture? Do Hindus want to pass on the consequences to their children's children's children?
It is interesting to note that Muslim countries have faced a similar challenge. For example, resisting Western culture is basically what the Iranian revolution was all about. There might have been extremes and an element of fanaticism, but at least the Persians deserve credit for recognizing the intrusion and defending their culture. And notice that as soon as the Talaban (Muslim fundamentalist students) took control in Kabul a couple of years ago, the first thing they did was throw all the televisions away!
Unfortunately, Hindus haven't done this. Maybe the poverty in India has made Western culture attractive by comparison. But if even the Muslim culture, which is iconoclastic and engages in meat eating, has resisted Western culture as being too sinful, then Hindus should be even more resistant! At least Islam does not approve of alcohol or sexual promiscuity. Hindus are witnessing all of these things gather prominence in their country.
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna movement, made some appropriate observations in this regard, back in the 1950s, in a note to the 14th text, second canto of the Bhagavat Purana. There, he noted that:
"Even fifty years ago, the social structure of all Indians was so arranged that they would not read any literature that was not connected with the activities of the Lord. They would not play any drama not connected with the Lord. They would not organize a fair or ceremony not connected with the Lord. Nor would they visit a place which was not holy and sanctified by the pastimes of the Lord. Therefore, even the common man in the village would talk about Ramayan and Mahabharat, Gita and Bhagavatam, even from his very childhood. But by the influence of the age of Kali, they have been dragged into the civilization of the dogs and hogs, laboring for bread without any sense of transcendental knowledge."
Maybe the inhabitants of Bharat/India haven't resisted the cultural onslaught because they haven't made the connection between the insidious undermining of their culture and Daitya-Danava designs; countrymen antagonistic to traditional dharma have not been considered in the light of the verse from the Varaha Purana. Maybe now Hindus will make this connection and begin to resist the seduction of Western culture, and take steps to safeguard traditional Dharmic values and norms.
And what about western civilization? (Gandhi quipped that it would be a good idea) What can we conclude? First of all, what do we see?
We see that the U.S. president won the Nobel Peace Prize when he hadn't done anything for it yet, and that he has just finished spending one trillion dollars in aerial bombardment over Libya without even having a declaration of war. It seems that no matter who one votes for, some type of NWO agenda is adhered to except for minor issues. Elected officials in the West have fallen prey to the Capture Hypothesis, except it isn't even a hypothesis anymore.
U.S. manufacturing has been sent beyond the U.S. borders to either Mexico or to the heartland of the Manchurian candidate, i.e., China. This has been an orchestrated effort which has worked against the ability of the West to maintain and defend itself. Nobody has wanted this, and everyone is upset about it, very, very upset.
The quality of television that North Americans watch has only served to deviate the attention of the people while their country was being disassembled, and to degrade the character of the citizens. We could say more about this, but it suffices to say that the people who decide what is going to be shown on television march to the beat of a different drummer.
Most people easily understand that NASA didn't go to the Moon in that aluminum Apollo contraption. If the writer of this article knows it, if the average citizen knows it, if A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami knew it right off the bat, then all of those who hold Ph.D. degrees at the schools of astronomy at the universities of the world know it, too. But none of them utter a single word; not a single word! There is never a peep out of them.
We could go on and on and on and on, but what we are stumbling upon here is worldwide collusion on an utterly huge scale, and very tightly disciplined collusion at that. Its scope is vast. No interest group on the surface of the world has the resources, ability or competence to implement such a scheme. People complain about the Jews but, if there are those among them that participate in organizing such manipulation, then they, too, are simply subject to the underground manipulation of the surface world by yet others behind them (actually, below them), but sight unseen.
And what about ISKCON? Has ISKCON never been infiltrated? Is it currently infiltrated? Are there sleeper agents or Manchurian Candidates waiting for their cues?
Because of our lazy, Kali Yuga mindsets, we sometimes hide our heads in the sand and don't come to recognize, nor do we confront, reality; it's common that we barely allow our curiosity to become piqued. But no matter what sphere the reader operates in, Hindu society, western society, or Hare Krishna movement society, the first step is for the reader to have the ability to recognize and properly interpret the different ways of underground manipulation carried out by various underworld entities. Know your demons! (And recognize their handiwork in the world around you)
"The people could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening." (George Orwell, in his novel 1984)
All things said and done, the onslaught is broad.
