An Unforgiving Road (11/29/08)

An Unforgiving Road (11/29/08) Dear _______ Mahārāja, All glories to Śrī Guru and Gaurāṅga. I am sorry that we didn't meet again in Vṛndāvana, but my plans changed suddenly and the next day I had to return to Govindajī Gardens. By the time you receive this email you must have started for the USA. I wish you well. Below is Read more...

Not Suited for Our Mission (12/04/08)

Not Suited for Our Mission (12/04/08) I say that it is senseless to keep up the facade of having a guru-disciple relationship with me. As far as I am concerned, all that ended last year when he wrote to say that he thought that the teachings of Mahāprabhu and those of Śaṅkarācārya could be reconciled, or that they were Read more...

Śrīdhara ‘Deva’ Gosvāmī (10/29/08)

Śrīdhara ‘Deva’ Gosvāmī (10/29/08) _____ Mahārāja, You must always remember that whenever printing the name of Śrīdhara Mahārāja in any place such as book covers, articles, DVDs, etc, that we MUST ALWAYS include the "Deva" in his name. I see on the recent videos that 'Deva' is not there. This is seen as a glaring defect by the G_____ Mahārāja camp. Read more...

India is Dangerous For You (09/15/08)

India is Dangerous For You (09/15/08) H______ Dāsa, Hare Kṛṣṇa. M_____ Mahārāja has told you many times that it is not good for you to come to India and stay in the āśrama. Many times you have come here and fallen into mental difficulty. This has been at times even dangerous for you as in India, there are no proper facilities when you need Read more...

The Jīva’s Dual Role, and Space in the Spiritual World (09/09/08)

The Jīva’s Dual Role, and Space in the Spiritual World (09/09/08) Daṇḍavats ______ Mahārāja, Yes that is correct. The soul does not actually 'split in two' but it is an accepted idea in Gauḍīya-siddhānta that depending on the attraction of a particular jīva, it is possible to be present in both gaura-līlā and kṛṣṇa-līlā at the same time. In order to do Read more...

Sahajiyā-sahajiyās (08/28/08)

Sahajiyā-sahajiyās (08/28/08) Daṇḍavats _____ Mahārāja, T____ says that we can talk about līlā in the dhāma, no problem. But when there is a 'problem' and we are in the dhāma, then the reaction is a thousand times worse. Therefore, Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja warned, "Fools Rush in Where Angles Fear to Tread". And Śrīla Purī Mahārāja added that the devotees Read more...

Sannyāsa it is Not About Sitting in Vṛndāvana and Polishing Your Beads. (08/20/08)

Sannyāsa it is Not About Sitting in Vṛndāvana and Polishing Your Beads. (08/20/08) Daṇḍavats M____ Mahārāja, As you know, I am not in favor of devotees living in Vṛndāvana who do not have a full time service engagement and I am certainly not going to support anyone's life style of living in Vṛndāvana by providing finances unless they are Read more...

What is the Point of Being in My Mission? (08/20/08)

What is the Point of Being in My Mission? (08/20/08) M_____ Mahārāja, In my other email to you written earlier this morning (a few hours ago) I wanted to look on the bright side of the situation, but unfortunately other issues have been drawn to my attention that are quite disturbing. These other issues were brought to my attention Read more...

I Expect Full Surrender and Nothing Less (07/27/08)

I Expect Full Surrender and Nothing Less (07/27/08) As for J____’s part in the business idea, I think it simply spells out maintaining something that, in effect, is an alternative to "Well, what if things don't work out with Mahārāja”? The problem is that keeping an alternative shelter almost definitely guarantees that, “Things won't work out with Mahārāja". It Read more...
