Mayapur's Conch Building, the ISKCON GBC's conference center.

A few weeks ago, Dhanurdhara Swami approached the GBC Executive Committee with the idea of possibly being reinstated as a member of ISKCON. The GBC EC has discussed the topic and issued a statement:

"Dear Devotees,

Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

A few weeks ago, Dhanurdhara Swami approached the GBC Executive Committee with the idea of possibly being reinstated as a member of ISKCON.

The GBC EC sought out the opinions of a number of affected parties such as the leadership in ISKCON North America (Dhanurdhara Swami's primary preaching field), the Child Protection Office, and devotees representing ISKCON youth and gurukula graduates.

Considering their feedback and the policies of the CPO, we came to the consensus that pursuing the matter is not appropriate. Dhanurdhara Swami agreed and therefore withdrew his request before it was brought to the GBC Body.

Thank you very much.

Hare Krsna,

Your servants,

Bhaktivaibhava Swami
Ramai Swami
Bhakti Caitanya Swami,
GBC Executive Committee"
