I Wash My Hands of This Embarrassing Affair! (09/02/09)
Dandavats G___ P. Mahārāja,
I informed B____ Prabhu that I was available for those discussions until the end of August. That time has now past (Game Over!) and I am out of the loop. Anything further that B____ or anyone else has to say or offer to Goswami can be done directly or thru the lawyers.
I know for a fact that the Goswamis are getting progressively more and more discouraged with any hope of a settlement with Iskcon over Śrīla Prabhupāda’s rooms. I think Iskcon underestimates the Goswami and his abilities. When disappointment increases it reaches a point where a man will even do the unthinkable. What Goswami will do next and what his relationship with Iskcon is going to be in the future is questionable. But unless Iskcon drops this case the relationship is not going to be good. Mark my words (my final words on this issue), Iskcon is not going to be the ultimate victor and future generations in Iskcon will deeply lament that they did not speedily settle with Goswami and they have lost Śrīla Prabhupāda’s rooms forever! Yet another series of stupid decisions by the GBC.
That’s it… I have nothing further to say on the matter. I am going the way of Pontius Pilate – I wash my hands of this embarrassing affair!
Kṛṣṇa is beautiful and life is good. I’ll be happy to meet you on occasion if you are in Vṛndāvana this year for Karttika.
Hoping this meets you well.
