Sannyāsīs Reading Kāma Sūtra – 1 (05/20/05)

Sannyāsīs Reading Kāma Sūtra - 1 (05/20/05) Daṇḍavats V_____ Mahārāja, If you can spare a moment I would like to ask you a question. A couple of my men were in Māyāpura this year just prior to Gaura Pūrṇimā and they happened to meet a certain sannyāsī who was staying at the āśrama of Ballabha Tīrtha Mahārāja. According to this Mahārāja, there are some Read more...

Sannyāsīs Reading Kāma Sūtra – 2 (05/20/05)

Sannyāsīs Reading Kāma Sūtra - 2 (05/20/05) I never heard of any of our sannyāsīs studying Kāma Sūtra.  I have one question.  Is the sannyāsī’s name R_____?  Is he Indian or western, say Russian?  If you know this, I think I could shed some light on the matter. Yes, his name was R_____ Mahārāja and he is from Russia. It seems that he is now estranged from your Read more...

Nityānanda’s Sannyāsa (05/27/05)

Nityānanda’s Sannyāsa (05/27/05) Daṇḍavats V_____ Mahārāja, Thank you for clearing up the issue of the Kāma-sutra and explaining who that R_____ Mahārāja is. Thank you also for offering me a copy of the Gīta Govinda, but we already have a Sanskrit copy of it in our reference library. If you have the one published by your saṅga I would be happy to receive it. Read more...

Tolerating Them Has Been a Tapasya (07/22/05)

Tolerating Them Has Been a Tapasya (07/22/05) Daṇḍavats _____ Swami, I was wondering if you had any plan to extend your shelter to B____ Mahārāja if he is going to actually fully separate from the X____ camp? It might not be a bad idea (at least for sometime) otherwise he may falter and return to X____. I thought about writing him, but decided not Read more...

Anyone who Leaves is Immediately Considered an Offender or a Demon (07/23/05)

Anyone who Leaves is Immediately Considered an Offender or a Demon (07/23/05) Daṇḍavats V____ Mahārāja, Thank you for your reply and I do look forward to talking with you in person in the future but it looks like I will not have any time to set aside for that until after Kārttika. I think by then also that you will have a more complete Read more...

Strange Karma (07/29/05)

Strange Karma (07/29/05) Daṇḍavats ______Swami, Wow! What a drama! I hear what you have said about being sincere and spiritually sound, but what a strange 'karma' B___ Mahārāja has. When he first left his sannyāsa (1985 or 86) he called me in Hawaii, told me he had given up sannyāsa, and asked me if he could come and be a part of my preaching Read more...

Tutoring Someone’s Disciple (08/12/05)

Tutoring Someone’s Disciple (08/12/05) G___ Mahārāja, Find out who this person is and what he wants. He is obviously someone's disciple and I have no interest in tutoring someone's disciple unless their guru has given sanction. Nor am I in need of a 'pen pal'. But encourage him to continue to read our books and articles. SBGN

Sahajiyās and Guru-wannabes (08/12/05)

Sahajiyās and Guru-wannabes (08/12/05) G__ Mahārāja, Here is another one. I don't know who he is. Tell him I am not going to Kārttika this year or any year in the future so long as the international saṅga of devotees continues to be such a hodge-podge. I have seen better days in Vṛndāvana and I wish to keep those memories and not have to Read more...

Sad and Shameful (09/04/05)

Sad and Shameful (09/04/05) Dear N___ Dāsa Hare Kṛṣṇa. I have received and read your email below and I am indeed sorry to hear that you are having to bear so many disappointments in your relation with guru. I would advise you to seek serious shelter under the śikṣā of someone whom you have faith in as a bona-fide representative of Kṛṣṇa. You and others Read more...
