In November of 1977, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada left this mortal world surrounded by hundreds of his beloved disciples. The formal cause for his departure was a heart attack complicated by kidney failure and diabetes. Twenty years later a rumor began that alleged his departure was due to an intricately planned, secret plot, masterminded by his most trusted disciples, to poison him with an elixir of exotic heavy metals.The Poison Conspiracy (PCON) sounded completely absurd to those who lovingly nursed the founder of the Hare Krishna movement through the predictable death trajectory that is typical when one's organs fail. Nonetheless; An investigation was launched confirming that the rumor was frivolous, contrived and mean spirited. Having no court-worthy evidence to proceed, a few disillusioned individuals conceived a massive propaganda campaign to undermine the faith of the innocent. They alleged that the those responsible for this murder were overwhelmed by a lust for power, destroyed the evidence, and used influence to cover up an alleged crime that rivals even the most imaginary fictional murder plots ever written.DECEPTION explores the type of dysfunction that lies at the foundation of all conspiracy theories conceived in the shadows of controversial events. Behavioral scientists have observed that these fictitious dramas fulfill an emotional need left vacant in the lives of those conditioned by fear, humiliation, pain, disillusionment, angst, frustration or a deep need to be heard and recognized at any cost. In this case, the cost is attempting to severely disrupt the operations of the world's largest publisher and distributor of the ancient sacred Vedic literature so badly needed in this world spinning out of control. Having no alternative venue to achieve their goal, the people behind the vindictive PCON took their agenda into the street. Following in the footsteps of the renowned Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, this controversy is being tried in the same court of public opinion that brings out the worst of mankind in the form of mutiny, anarchy, lynch mobs, terrorism, and genocide.Augmented with contemporary examples, historic references, and interesting facts, DECEPTION provides a refreshing way to understand this otherwise delicate and sordid subject in a thoroughly researched, captivating format.
