The Wealth of Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja (10/02/12)
Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for forwarding me your correspondence with _____ Mahārāja. Definitely an interesting read.
It is true – the wealth of Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja is the property of the sincere Vaiṣṇavas. I do not like to think of myself as sincere or even being a Vaiṣṇava, but it was my great fortune that Śrīla Guru Mahārāja engaged me in his service of book publishing. That has become life’s greatest fortune for me.
Guru Mahārāja has said that when his words are sincerely distributed and when those words help a sincere seeker of Kṛṣṇa consciousness that he himself receives a blessing and that he desires that. How wonderful!
But ____ Mahārāja says in his email that Govinda Mahārāja was specifically designated as the inheritor of all the wealth of Śrīla Guru Mahārāja. Not an accurate statement in my opinion because it directly contradicts what Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja already made clear.
Now Ācārya Mahārāja is the inheritor of Govinda Mahārāja’s wealth and ______ Mahārāja is on the outside, rejected. Just see the fun!
I told ________ Mahārāja back in 1993 that I had no time for childish games anymore. I had seen enough and painfully experienced the same childish games and foolishness in the post-Prabhupāda Iskcon. I said that if the same thing was going to be repeated in Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, that I wanted nothing to do with it. I never spoke with ______ Mahārāja hence.
Even now I have the same mentality. Let howl who may, but let the presses roll (internet included).
Śrīla Śridhara Deva Gosvāmī Mahārāja vāṇī ki-jaya!!!
Hoping this meets you well.
