You Are On the Outside Looking In (04/17/03)

You Are On the Outside Looking In (04/17/03) Dear P____ Dāsa Prabhu, Hare Kṛṣṇa. Thank you for your letter of concern. This is a note of concern from P______ Dāsa Adhikārī, the father of your hari-nāma disciple, A____ Dāsī.

Dead Horses (07/09/03)

Dead Horses (07/09/03)Dear S____,Namaskaram.These are old postings that you have sent me. Its like beating a dead horse. The dvaita.org never dies! Evil things seldom do. We call S.

Better to Take Birth Again…(10/06/03)

Better to Take Birth Again…(10/06/03) Dear B____ Prabhu, Daṇḍavats. I am in Mamalapuram/Mahabalipuram and I have not been checking my email regularly. Sorry for the delay in answering your question.

Forewarned is Foretold (11/09/03)

Forewarned is Foretold (11/09/03) Dear G____ Prabhu, Hare Kṛṣṇa. All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda. I thought to mention it previously (but I did not), but now that you have mentioned X_ Mahārāja, I think I should inform you that I have no attraction toward the camp of X___ Mahārāja. We have diametrically opposite conceptions regarding many issues that abound with the followers of X__ Read more...

When Women Give Dīkṣā… (11/09/03)

When Women Give Dīkṣā... (11/09/03) Daṇḍavats Mahārāja, Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda. Here is a quote for you - Devotee: Can women become guru? Śrīdhara Mahārāja: Yes, if she sincerely feels that she can help others, she may be. There are so many. Jāhnavā Devī, wife of Nityānanda Prabhu, she began extensively this spiritual movement. And there are many Read more...
