You Shouldn’t Be Subscribed to KrsnaTalk (10/13/12)
Dear ______ Prabhu,
Daṇḍavats. All glories to Śrīla Prabhupāda.
Sorry I missed your email until today. I just got back from a three week trip in the Andaman Islands and upon my return I had over 900 emails waiting for me. Just trying to catch up and today my assistant pointed out your email which comes to the KrsnaTalk secretary first and then sometimes gets forwarded to me.
I read both your emails…so what is it you would like to discuss? If it requires lengthy emails, then I would opt to postpone such until we can meet personally. I am not much for drawn-out correspondence thru emails, especially if there are elements of hostility involved. Since your appreciation of Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja seems to also be “lacking” there might not be much productivity in our discussion.
In your email you state, “Delivering us his comments – as if they are the absolute representation of Śrīla Prabhupāda’s conclusive comments…” This leads me to believe that you shouldn’t be subscribed to KrsnaTalk in the first place. After all KrsnaTalk is intended for my followers and the followers of Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja. Since you are not in either category, why not unsubscribe? In fact, i’ll save you the trouble and have my assistant take care of that today.
PS: Thank you for the quote from Śrīla Prabhupāda.
