This Petty Fault-finding is a Type of Madness (07/13/09)
Just for the record I am forwarding this email to you with the message that I really dislike the type of exchange below. And I especially cannot appreciate the way one devotee is unnecessarily speaking ill about another devotee. I do not think it is accurate and it is certainly not the way to resolve this type of situation. I have no interest in this type of exchange and until the parties concerned display considerable more humility, I will not be discussing this matter.
There are many faults in this world and one should think of one’s own faults as the most offensive. It is never the way of the Vaiṣṇavas to think that it is the other person’s fault and that I have no defects. As for B___, I have strongly rebuked him about the situation that developed in Vṛndāvana and he has accepted his chastisement openheartedly.
Now our J_____ is in Canada and some talking (gossiping) with M_____ Mātā is going on about matters that transpired in the past. Why this is happening I don’t know, but I humbly request everyone involved here to leave this issue and pay closer attention to the service that Lord Kṛṣṇa and our Guardians have given us.
In short, I think this petty fault-finding is a type of madness and I am not interested to join the pursuit.
Hopping this meets you well.
