A State of Madness or Aparādha (07/25/02)
I just thought to let you know that M___ Mahārāja forwarded me the email from D___. There has not been any unpleasant dealings between D___ and any of the devotees here. On the contrary, even until a few weeks ago all relationships were ‘normal.’
The email of D___ comes as a shock to all of us. When D___ wants to be kind and affectionate with the devotees no one is sweeter the he is, but when he wants to hurt those who love him, no one is more vicious than D___.
M___ Mahārāja tried to talk to him on the phone, but it was the same as the email. So we are just waiting and hoping that some day D____ will come back and show us his normal self. Unfortunately to do anything otherwise at this time might be very counter-productive. So the best thing at this point is just to leave him alone and hope that Kṛṣṇa guides him within his heart to do the right thing.
I hate to say it, but I think D____ is in a state of madness as he gets into at times. Otherwise he is suffering from some aparādhā.
In any case. there isn’t much that any of us can do for him in his present mental state.
That’s all I have to say at this time.
See you soon.
