Dear devotees and friends: We humbly invite you to participate at the SCSM Global Headquarters in New Jersey, USA and at our U.K. center in the celebration of the grand festival of Sri Krishna Janmastamion Monday 3rd September 2018 at 8pm until 12am midnight. Complete fast all day until midnight (then no grains).
On Aug 4, 2018 I wrote an email to Sriman Vrndavan das which I then posted on our website (See: “Truths: Hidden and Rewarding”). He responded with an email to me dated Aug 5, 2018 wherein he seemed to take umbrage with the entirety of my email, although I admit to being baffled as to the exact points of his disagreement with me except for one.
I’m happy to hear from you again after a long time
[You wrote to me:]
Let you think on this- Nicholas Hagger’s books reveal truths that have been hidden, and are rewarding.
If you want to make progress in Krishna consciousness you will have to subdue your tendency to rely on mundane authorities. Their ideas have been classified by our Sri Guru Varga as those of the cheaters and the cheated. The ideas they promote are intended to cheat you. If you accept them you will be cheated.
During your Podcast Ep. 338 you presented the following challenge:
@25:11 “because the only worldview The only one; pester me, bring me your emails, bring me your best arguments; i’ve held all your positions over my 45 years on this planet, and I frankly probably know your positions better than you do. So, bring them to me. Flood the inbox at firstname.lastname@example.org. Show me another worldview that can adequately explain why the world is the way it is, why we as a species, as human beings are the way we are, and what the solution to it is.”
Please accept my humble dandavat pranamas in remembrance of my Divine Masters.
Again, I thank you for your email, your well-wishes for me and your considered thoughts and opinions.
As you have touched on topics reminiscent of those I have heard discussed by our predecessor acharyas, I am indebted to you for helping me recall their words. However, after carefully considering your points, I conclude most of what you say is wrong and, when it is right, it is for the wrong reason.
Please accept my humble obeisances in remembrance of our Divine Masters.
I have felt troubled ever since reading this reply from you some months ago (3/30/18) to a post on my Facebook wall: “Who am I? I am a complete nobody… “ I began an immediate response on March 31 but, unfortunately, could not complete it to my satisfaction. But this phrase “I am a complete nobody” is one that does not sit well with me with respect to you; because it is not true. Expressions like this automatically establish the glories of Srila Guru Maharaja. He is so great that… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja – “I am a complete nobody… “”
When Kṛṣṇa saw that His friends the cowherd boys were frightened, He, the fierce controller even of fear itself, said, just to mitigate their fear, “My dear friends, do not stop eating. I shall bring your calves back to this spot by personally going after them Myself.”
In our post BSG | “I need your association.” we offered the chance to request a full copy of the email sent by Sripada Goswami Maharaja to me, Giri Maharaja. Among the requests we received was this one:
Your Name: Ramai Your Email: [Redacted] Message to the Secretary: Dandavat Maharaja. Send me a copy of Goswami’s email of apology
Although the name is listed as that of Ramai (Sriman Ramai dasa brahmachari) and the email matches with the one I have on record for him, I was highly doubtful that he would have much interest in this matter. Neither have I heard anything from him (that I can recall) for the past… Read More... “Transcendental competition: Who’s the Mystery Man?”
