Unprecedented Offences (08/10/16)

Unprecedented Offences (08/10/16) Daṇḍavats Prabhu, Thanks for the heads up. Interesting, but I think it is way too late for them to get on track.

Their offences towards Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja and other humble Vaiṣṇavas is unprecedented in our sampradāya - a heinous sin indeed. I met yesterday Read more...
