Cultivating Self-Knowledge: ‘Swami in a Strange Land’ Author Joshua M. Greene talks God and Beatles

By Jon Kelly

NewsInsideOut.com

Vancouver, BC – An exclusive new video published to YouTube on May 6, 2016, explores the lives and teachings of Krishna and Prabhupada, a yogi from India who founded the Krishna Consciousness movement in the West during the 1960s. Bestselling author Joshua M. Greene recently spoke about his new book “Swami in a Strange Land: How Krishna Came to the West: The Life of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada” with NewsInsideOut.com’s Jon Kelly. During his one-hour interview the PBS and Disney filmmaker told of an encounter with his teacher at Beatles headquarters in London that convinced him to follow a spiritual path.

Described by the New York Times as “a storyteller who traces journeys to enlightenment,” the director of strategic planning for the United Nations Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders portrayed the 1960s as a period of transition. “We were flexing new muscles, looking for alternative solutions to war and inequality. The message which Prabhupada brought (the millennial teachings of Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita) spoke directly to those issues.”

The former adjunct professor of religious studies at Hofstra University in New York suggested that his teacher’s mission revealed “knowledge of the self as the immortal spark of God, a Divine essence different from the external body and the race/religious background of the body. By cultivating knowledge of ourselves as eternal souls we could know the peace that had so eluded us through other channels: military, economic, governmental etc.”

“All of these teachers were coming into America. The Asian Exclusion Act had been repealed. Teachers from India and Asia who otherwise had no access to America were coming and setting up their shops, their schools and their teachings. There was this marketplace of spirituality in the 1960s.

“Prabhupada among all of those many teachers was the one who insisted that the purpose of yoga, the purpose of all spiritual disciplines is to know ourselves as eternal beings and our relationship with the Supreme Being through love and devotion.”

“There was a universalism to his teachings,” the author further reflected. However he later cautioned viewers, “That knowledge of the deeper dimension of reality is not something you get like a gold ring on a carousel. It is something that is revealed when we become qualified to understand it.”

According to the edition, “In 1965, a seventy-year-old man set sail from India to America with a few books in his bag, pennies in his pockets, and a message of love in his heart. He landed in New York at the peak of the revolutionary counterculture movement of the ’60s, and went on to spark a global spiritual renaissance that led to the creation of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness.”

The following partial transcript records one highlight from an exclusive interview featuring bestselling author Joshua M. Greene in conversation with NewsInsideOut.com’s Jon Kelly discussing the new book “Swami in a Strange Land: How Krishna Came to the West: The Life of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada”.

What were the circumstances under which you first met Prabhupada?

I was a lost child of the 1960s and wondering what it’s all about (Mrs. Jones). At the time I was a student at the Sorbonne in Paris. A devotee who had been there to start a Krishna Center in 1969 said, “My teacher Prabhupada is in London right now. Why don’t you go and meet him? It’s very rare to meet a pure devotee of God.”

I had no idea what he was talking about. But when he said that Prabhupada was living with John Lennon I got on the next boat train to London and showed up at the Krishna Temple (on Bury Place off Little Oxford Street by the British Museum) and walked in.

They were having lunch, this beautiful vegetarian spread. I sat down and they asked me about myself. I said that I was in school studying literature.

“Really. What else?”

“Well, I play organ in a rock band.”

“Really? Come with us!” So we traipsed out and got into this Volkswagen Minibus. Probably the worst car allowed on the roads. We’re rocking back and forth on our way to someplace.

I said, “Where are we going?”

They said, “You’ll see, you’ll see. You’re welcome to Krishna’s band. You’re in Krishna’s band now.”

So we show up about 15 minutes later. They open the door and there in front of me is a door with the number three on it. I’m thinking about three and I’m looking up and down the street when I realize it’s Savile Row.

3 Savile Row: This is Beatles headquarters.

The Beatles were pretty much the wise men of our age. Whatever they were into we wanted to know what it was.

I walked in and we go down to a studio in the basement of the building and there’s George Harrison, stringy as a string bean, hair down to his waist wearing badges. Krishna badge and a Yogananda badge and a Prabhupada badge and he’s got beads around his neck; the whole paraphernalia.

They hand me a harmonium, this hand-pumped instrument and I start playing along as they’re recording an album of Indian devotional music.

I’m thinking to myself, “Okay, let me get this straight. If I hang out with these people I get God and the Beatles.”

“Alright, I’m in!”

Update: YouTube Cites UK Government Legal Complaint, Blocks ‘Ricky Dearman’s Satanic Messages’

By Jon Kelly

NewsInsideOut.com

Vancouver, BC – YouTube issued notice on May 2, 2016, that a Ricky Dearman news video offering further evidence to the reported pedophile cover-up in Hampstead had been blocked from viewers in the United Kingdom. The notice, sent via email, cited the appearance of an anonymous “defamation complaint” upon which the social media giant took action in a way deemed “necessary to comply with local laws”. This incident furthers perceptions of ongoing web-sanitizing attempts to influence public opinion and censor discourse surrounding this case and the reporting of controversial news in the public interest.

NewsInsideOut.com in its initial story described how the video ““Ricky Dearman’s Satanic Verses” investigates a besieged father responding to allegations he leads a North London-based satanic cult focused on ritual murder, pedophilia and human trafficking. A new message stating “Satan” is located “on the Earth” emerges from within a digital voice sample inviting comparison with a passage from the biblical Job.” The disgraced actor had earlier told BBC “I’m the leader of a satanic sex cult”.

“The nation the video is banned in is the UK,” explained international lawyer Alfred Lambremont Webre, “Which is the nation whose officials [police and social services] in the City of Hampstead UK are accused of aiding and abetting a pedophilia ring. Your video is blocked based on the complaint to You Tube of an accused criminal defendant [father Ricky Dearman] and suppresses vital evidence in the UK community.”

The war crimes tribunal judge stated further how, “The Hampstead UK case reaches up to 10 Downing Street with the involvement of the office of UK PM David Cameron. Suppression of your NewsInsideOut.com news video on a single complaint by the involved potential criminal defendant [father Ricky Dearman] to charges of pedophilia by his own children in this case amounts to a cover-up of pedophilia connected acts by persons connected to the UK Prime Minister’s office. For details please see our prior reporting.”

Mossad named in Brussels attacks according to new analysis of second witness to Zaventem airport explosions testimony

By Jon Kelly

NewsInsideOut.com

Vancouver, BC – Exclusive new video published to YouTube on March 24, 2016, purports to reveal how Mossad was named by a second witness to Tuesday’s explosions at Brussels’ Zaventem airport. Mossad, the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service or ISIS (according to a CBS News national correspondent), is said by alternative news sources to have played a role in this week’s state-sponsored for-profit false flag terrorism in which two Belgian government officials were said to have tendered their resignations but were urged to stay on under conditions described as a “time of war.”

One witness, “Alexandre,” a self-described Belgium-born American resident whose identity could not be further verified at the time of this report, told France 24 of events both during and immediately after two explosions took place within the departures area of Zaventem airport in a televised interview aired March 22, 2016. According to one etymology and history source, “Alexander” was “another name of the hero Paris” in Greek mythology. Allegations of links between operatives behind this week’s attacks in Brussels and the Paris attacks of 2015 are now emerging within mainstream coverage of events.

During an August 5, 1990, interview with CSPAN, current CBS News national correspondent Dan Raviv explained how his English-language styling of the Hebrew term “Mossad” was resolved through conversations with an Israeli prime minister’s spokesperson during research for the best-selling “Every Prince a Spy: The Complete History of Israel’s Intelligence Community” co-authored by journalist Yossi Melman. The Harvard graduate stated then how the term “Israeli Secret Intelligence Service” was offered, concluding that if such a term were to have an acronym it would appear as the letters “ISIS”.

This week’s reports that ISIS claimed responsibility for explosions that killed a reported 31 and injured hundreds in Brussels may be better understood when lensed through such a historic lexical precedent established twenty-six years prior. Readers can watch this portion of the Dan Raviv interview at 23:12 on the CSPAN video library timeline hosted at the public service provider’s website.

The Irish Times has reported how Belgian “Interior minister Jan Jambon and justice minister Koen Geens tendered their resignations to prime minister Charles Michel, who asked them to stay on.” The Flemish nationalist leader was said to have invoked a “time of war” in his response, urging the two to not “leave the field.” In a recent op-ed for RT, UK-based Australian journalist John Pilger explained his theory of how a “world war” of propaganda, lies and distractions manipulated by an “invisible government” has already begun. That ongoing information warfare between belligerent parties has been taking place for decades is not a new idea within the alternative news community.

Analysis of the apparent covert insider spycraft information-laden appearance of “Alexandre” on France 24 follows earlier NewsInsideOut.com coverage of BBC witness “James Firkin” whose capacity for revelatory disclosure concerning CIA participation in the 2016 Brussels bombings suggests a swarm of multiple foreign intelligence agency underground operatives conspiring around the de facto capital of the European Union. Their weighty statements combined with objectionably questionable unverified identities suggests evidence of mainstream media Operation Mockingbird-like collusion that promotes individuals in crisis-actor roles as mainstream pseudo-vox populi spokespeople framing current events within emergent police state-identity political contexts.

The presence of previously unreported forensic information concerning secret messages encrypted within Zaventem Airport explosions witness “Alexandre”’s testimony to France 24 was detected while monitoring mirror-filtered renderings of the witness statements. The audio soundtrack was loaded in the edit bay of a digital audio workstation then subjected to mirror-filtering and time-expansion in preparation for a detailed auditory study. The conduct of this procedure was informed by best practices refined through repeatedly providing military, forensic and medical-grade intelligence that had been successfully vetted through practical real-world feedback over nearly 20 years of unmatched research and reporting.

NewsInsideOut.com coverage has described how the same procedure publicly revealed details of the Iraq War, identified the BTK Killer, named Russian spy Anna Chapman’s accomplice and uncovered the UFOs and ETs in Edward Snowden’s NSA cache weeks, months and years before such information became widely-accepted public knowledge. Below is a partial transcript of the witnesses’ statements from March 22, 2016, preceded by the secret messages encrypted backwards therein with emphasis added.

My blows. Beneath: Mossad: “You always have the debate between the traditional airport security and the one that’s used in Israeli airports which is much heightened. But moreover, the problem that you will face is the flow of people. Hundreds and thousands of people every day that you have to check once, twice and then a third time before they board the airplane. Yeah, if it has to be done it has to be done. Sure. But how practical is it going to be? And how much will it cost? Is it doable? That is something that’s well beyond my paygrade.”

My mole hits. Have a skull: “As for the atmosphere, there’s no atmosphere anymore. To be precise people are just in shock. Stay home and try, I think, they try their best to follow the instructions of the authorities. As for the deployment of the police and military it’s very intense in all of Brussels because Brussels of course has a lot of potential targets; with the European authorities, with NATO, with embassies and stuff like that.

You’re still in my CIA: Yeah, heightened security clearly. You see military trucks, you see soldiers, you see police officers, canine units. That’s about it and people are in shock. The attack at the airport was absolutely horrifying. I cannot even imagine what people who were in that metro station went through.

CIA named in Brussels attacks according to new analysis of Zaventem airport explosions witness testimony

By Jon Kelly

NewsInsideOut.com

Vancouver, BC – Exclusive new video published to YouTube on March 22, 2016, purports to reveal how the Central Intelligence Agency was named by one witness to explosions at Brussels’ Zaventem airport, part of a wave of attacks against the Belgian capital that took place earlier that day. ISIS, a division of the CIA (according to a Russian army military expert), is said to have claimed responsibility for what alternative news sources have identified as CIA/Mossad state-sponsored for-profit false flag terrorism in which the Belgian government reportedly cited 30 dead and 230 injured.

A witness, “James Firkin,” a seeming Brussels resident whose identity could not be further verified at the time of this report, told the BBC of events both during and immediately after two explosions took place within the departures area of Zaventem airport. The British broadcaster went on to describe how “Belgium’s Interior Minister Jan Jambon had said on Monday that the country was on the highest level of alert for possible revenge attacks after the capture of Salah Abdeslam. He told Belgian radio: “We know that stopping one cell can… push others into action. We are aware of it in this case.””

Russian Colonel Alexander ZhilinDuring an on-camera appearance published to YouTube on December 24, 2015, Russian Colonel Alexander Zhilin stated “My point of view is that we absolutely must support Assad. We must ensure he has all he needs to destroy ISIS, in the understanding that ISIS is a non-structural division of the CIA.”

In his comments from Havana, President Obama stated “We stand in solidarity with [the people of Belgium] in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people.” He went on to remark “We can and we will defeat those who threaten the safety and security of people all around the world.”

The presence of previously unreported forensic information concerning a secret revelation in Zaventem Airport explosions witness James Firkin’s testimony to the BBC was detected while monitoring mirror-filtered renderings of the witness statements. The audio soundtrack was loaded in the edit bay of a digital audio workstation then subjected to mirror-filtering and time-expansion in preparation for a detailed auditory study. The conduct of this procedure was informed by best practices refined through repeatedly providing military, forensic and medical-grade intelligence that had been successfully vetted through practical real-world feedback over nearly 20 years of unmatched research and reporting.

NewsInsideOut.com coverage has described how the same procedure publicly revealed details of the Iraq War, identified the BTK Killer, named Russian spy Anna Chapman’s accomplice and uncovered the UFOs and ETs in Edward Snowden’s NSA cache weeks, months and years before such information became widely-accepted public knowledge. Below is a partial transcript of the witnesses’ statements from March 22, 2016, preceded by the secret message encrypted backwards therein.

The lies. A reveal: CIA: “It’s weird. We’re watching it on the television and kind of thinking we were there two hours ago, three hours ago. How did we survive that? Because it was literally the ceiling was falling in around us and the glass was exploding around us and so many other people were badly injured. We’ve learned now that people have died. There’s also the other attack on the metro. I take that metro quite a bit. It’s just surreal but we’re hunkered down at home and trying to come to terms with it all I guess.”
