(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 21st November 2012, Cape Town, South Africa)

Many times I have been in these festivals where there were big arrangements – offerings to the deities with many tables and many preparations and the most wonderful offerings! Then afterwards, almost all the tables were carried to the prasadam hall. Then I saw  one table was just going straight to someone’s room! I have seen with my own eyes how the maha-mafia swiped full tables of maha-prasadam. Very seriously I have seen. I have also seen the other attacks of the maha-mafia.

In Vrndavan, there are all these mangal-arti sweets because there are many deities – lots of them and very nice ones also. But the devotees don’t get them because some are being sold and the other ones all go to the gurukula – it’s the kids who get them all. But the maha-mafia took strong actions. One man on the main electric switch… a team dressed in black dhotis, they went inside and swiped the whole offering into black plastic bags and disappeared into the darkness of night. The maha-mafia struck again!
