I absolutely do NOT allow my disciples to drive at night (02/26/14)
I just came to know that _____ and ____ are planning to drive to ______ on the 15th night and arrive the day of Gaura Purnima. If that is true then it is better they do not come at all.
The first thing is that I absolutely do NOT allow my disciples to drive at night. I have so many godbrothers and godsisters who died in cars at night. I don’t need disciples added to the list. There are also banditos in the mountains and they rob and kill people. It happens in Mexico all the time. Don’t you read the newspaper?
And lastly the idea of just showing up at the last minute on the very day of the festival and being wiped out from driving all night is just short of an insult. Devotees come to a festival to hear, chant and do service. — not just pop in and out for a day. What is the use. Also they cannot leave on the 16th night. They can return on the 17th day or the 17th night as they wish.
So if the _____ devotees cannot get here by the 15th then they should just stay in ______ and have a small program there by themselves. Make sure they understand this because if i find out they drive at night i’m gonna be very upset with them. I will not tolerate it.
