Not Welcome! (02/28/19)
Also in 2005, I received the following message from a GBC thru another devotee:
Please ask Narasiṁha Mahārāja if he will be happy with us for not using the word “Adbhūta Mandira” and thus respect our previous ācāryas, then will he join us to build the big temple of understanding to please his guru Śrīla Prabhupāda? If not, then request Mahārāja at least to pray for us to fulfill Śrīla Prabhupāda’s desire by building this temple.
Thank you very much.
Bhakti Puruṣottama Swami
So, after receiving that message, I wrote the GBC and offered to help in a way that would be most fruitful, to share what I had learned from Śrīdhara Mahārāja concerning the theistic conception and Deity arrangements, that the temple was to present to the world.They never got back to me, but I did hear the rumor that persons like me were not welcome.
What to do? ISKCON goes on in their own way; Big money, big temple, flat earth, big misconceptions and the wrong Deities. The village idiots will love it…
