A recent email sent to Srila Giri Maharaja –
Dear Srila Bhakti Kanan Giri Maharaja,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
Jai Srila Gurudeva!
Speaking of whom, did you intentionally avoid posting a notice of our observance today (now yesterday) of his disappearance?
To my shame I forgot to post it.
Lilavati Devi reminded me I hadn’t posted it but by then the day was almost over.
I checked if I had posted last year’s observance but it seems I had not done that either.
I am thinking that as well as a bad memory I have a mental block as I do not find it a happy day to remember.
I remarked to Lilavati Devi that I remember it as the day the world went mad and when the good sense, reason and sobriety of prominent devotees who were ordered by the spiritual master to become acharyas was lost due to the influence of illusion
