Running an Āśrama or a Mission is Not Easy (06/08/07)
Dear J_____ Dāsī,
Thank you very much for the report. I am always happy to receive your emails and it is encouraging to me to see that you are taking Kṛṣṇa consciousness very seriously and also endeavoring to keep in communication with me.
As you can see, running an āśrama or a mission is not easy. It is very difficult sometimes, especially when devotees sometimes let us down. Therefore it is very important to remain close with the devotees who are
fixed up in Kṛṣṇa’s service and who are very serious about Kṛṣṇa consciousness. So please continue as you are doing.
When I will come to Italy next is not yet fixed — probably in the fall or winter season. In the meantime there is a long hot summer with lots of service ahead at the Como āśrama. Please send me reports from time to time.
Swami B.G. Narasiṅgha
