Their Future is in Your Hands (06/30/11)

Dear K_____Swami,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda. All glories to Śrī Śrī Guru and Gaurāṅga.

It seems that a bit more correspondence between you and I at this time is necessary regarding the current issue of V____.

Yesterday, I was in contact with L___ and V___ and as a husband and wife team, they have asked me to clarify with you what will be your instructions to V____ regarding her participation in my programs hosted in her house after she has taken initiation from you.

Her last understanding from you was as follows and still stands, unless you instruct her otherwise.

1) V____ should not cook or do any service for or during our programs.
2) She should be passive and not participate.
3) She should leave her house and go to that of B____ or to the house of another devotee in the event that P____ should show up for a program or to visit her husband.

V___ really needs clarification from you on the above 3 points before she can make her final decision in 2 weeks about accepting initiation. She certainly wants to accept initiation from you, but as your instructions are now, they stand to threaten the harmony between her and her husband. An obvious concern of hers as I am sure you can see why.

V____ humbly requests that if she accepts initiation from you that she be allowed to freely associate with all the devotees coming to her house, regardless from which institution they may come from. She asks you for your official blessings to be free to associate with me (Swami Narasingha) and my sannyasī disciples and others in a way that is appropriate to true Vaiṣṇava saṅga.

From my side, my only instructions to L___ in this matter has been for him to serve the Vaiṣṇavas, study the books of Śrīla Prabhupāda and Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja, to cultivate the qualities of a Vaiṣṇava, to chant the Holy Name of Kṛṣṇa, to live a simple life and to worship Śrī Śrī Rādhā-Kṛṣṇa and Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu in his heart of hearts. The same instructions I would give to L___’s wife or to any living entity trying to make progress in Kṛṣṇa consciousness.

Kindly find the time and good-heartedness to address V____’s request and concerns as stated above. It seems that V___ and L___ are sincere devotees at the gates and that you and I are the gatekeepers. I have given them my instructions and my blessings, so now their future fortune is in your hands.

Hoping this meets you well and looking forward to your reply.

Gaura Haribol,
Swami Narasingha
