Contact With Them Saddens My Heart (09/01/10)
Dear Mahārājas and Prabhu,
In relation to my recent emails with B______ of San Diego (iskcon), I wanted to mention to all of you that iskcon people only remember the critical or harsh things that Śrīla Prabhupāda may have said about Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja. They never remember the good, the affectionate or the amazing things that Prabhupāda said favorably about Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja. And most of all they completely neglect that Śrīla Prabhupāda gave direct instruction before his passing away that if we had questions regarding philosophy that we should approach Śrīdhara Mahārāja.
In the end my opinion is that iskcon is a shallow institution, filled with misconceptions and totally lacking in the ability to improve, or to make real advancement in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. (G__ can write that into my will.)
The less contact I have with them then the happier I will be, because contact with them simply makes me remember so many unfortunate things that sadden the heart.
