Corporate ISKCON - Part 26

BY: SUN STAFF


Jun 15, 2010 — CANADA (SUN) — A systematic review of ISKCON-related corporations and projects.

Today we'll continue mapping the corporations and persons related to directors of various Vedic and Vaishnava educational organizations included in yesterday's cluster map, beginning with directors Randy I. Stein (Mahabuddhi dasa), Richard Lewis, and Ram P. Agarwal. Several of the new linked corporations appear to be commercial health-related businesses.

We take particular note of the connection between the American Federation of Vedic Colleges and Schools and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America, Inc., for both of whom Ram P. Agarwal is listed as director. The American Federation of Vedic Colleges and Schools is currently inactive. Ram P. Agarwal is not listed as a director for the International Federation of Vedic Colleges and Schools (currently active).

It would be interesting to know if there continues to be a connection between the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the International Federation of Vedic Colleges and Schools, since one is a high visibility political organization and the other is an educational organization. The keystone personality connecting these corporations is Randy I. Stein (Mahabuddhi dasa).

We received the following email in response to our Cluster Report #25. Burke Rochford writes:

    "I am surprised to learn that I am apparently listed as a co-director for the International Federation of Vedic Colleges and Schools since I have had no role whatsoever in the organization (see "Corporate ISKCON-Part 25"). Many years ago I did meet in Boston with Mahabuddhi dasa and Hridayananda Maharaja to discuss the Vedic College and how it might better serve the educational needs of ISKCON's membership. I don't remember committing to anything beyond the discussion we had that day and am perplexed as to why I am listed as a co-director. I have had no direct or indirect involvement in the Vedic College and assumed it went out of business. I might add, in fairness, that I did serve for several years as an active member on ISKCON's North American Board of Education during the early and mid 1990s. I have acknowledged that involvement in my recent book Hare Krishna Transformed (New York University Press, page 5, 2007)."

As always, we appreciate reader feedback on the Corporate ISKCON series, and we're grateful to receive these points of clarification from Mr. Rochford.

The data being presented in this series is primarily derived from state departments in charge of corporate registration. The information is in the public domain. In some states, the names of directors can be arbitrarily filed with a corporate registry and signatures of each of the directors are not required at the time of filing. It's certainly possible that in this case, based on a perceived show of interest, Mr. Rochford's name was added as a director without his knowledge by another member of the founding board. As time permits we'll research this further, and encourage the parties related to this particular entity to do likewise.
