From: B.K. Giri To: Ratan Krishna das Date: 3/31/16
Dear Sriman Ratan Krishna dasa,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
It was very kind of you to write to me, expressing your appreciation for my humble attempts to serve Srila Gurudeva, his Mission, his devotees and those caught in the cycle of samsara.
Your visit with the other devotees you mentioned was very enlivening for me as well.
Whenever there appears an intensity to serve the Lord and His devotees, as we noticed among the devotees here at the time you mention, it must be accompanied by a very auspicious sphere of influence that affects all… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja “A Special Time””

Признателен вам за ответ на мой вопрос о Буддха Пурниме.
Именно в такой последовательности, как вы изложили ответ, я и принимал
знание о Господе Буддхе-аватаре.
Но из лекции Шрилы Шридхара Махараджа/о которой вы упомянули в ответе/ я впервые услышал, что есть Буддха-аватар и Буддха-настик/без-
божник/,но в самой лекции не понял кто есть кто. И кем является Буддха
Гаутама, аватарой или настик.
Сделав запрос в интернете, я нашел статью /Современный Буддха Гаутама
и Вишну-аватар Буддха –… Read More... “Буддха, “кто есть кто?” (Buddha, “Who is who?”) An Email Exchange”
Today I became lost in the ocean of jñāna. I was searching for some original materials that would delineate the lineage (parampara) of the other three principal vaishnava sampradayas. The ocean is filled by many tributaries and searching one and then another I happened to come to an old version I have of “Gaudiya Gitanjali” (from about 1986). Wanting to verify the authenticity of its origin & some passages therein, a further search took me to scsmath.com and searching there for “Gaudiya Gitanjali”… Read More... “Srila Giri Maharaja “All Conceptions of Junior and Senior Lost Their Meaning… “”

All Glories to Sri Guru and Gauranga,
I am certainly not qualified to say anything to the assembled Devotees, and disciples, what to speak of His Grace, who was the first Westerner to take Sanyasa initiation from Srila Guru Maharaja, BR Shridhar Maharaja.
Well as Govinda Maharaj was about to answer him, the other person who was already formally initiated by Govinda Maharaj interrupted Govinda Maharaj by asking ~
“(Govinda Maharaj, is it alright for a person who is not initiated to ask such a?)” Govinda Maharaj looked a little disdained at this disciple and said~ “before initiation one may ask anything, after initiation your are supposed to just do what i tell you.” then He addressed the man.
Yes, you may ask anything.
You asked, I answered; and addressed your questions.
i have been making inquiries in regard to Srila Prabhupada`s directions for ISKCON Diety Puja. So far i have been quite disappointed with my correspondence with people in position~?~ as2how they seem to have never been personally instructed by Him and also have never heard from anyone that was~?~
I suspect they (“people in position”) are also quite disappointed with you, as I am.
In my opinion you should not be making inquiries into the matter of Deity Puja, nor should anyone respond to your inquiries.
How unexpected, and how kind it is that you took the trouble to remember me.
You must still be in Hawaii.
I listened to the audio file which I had not heard before. One portion of Srila Prabhupada speaking, beginning with “The human society cannot anymore be allowed to continue a Godless civilization at the risk of decreasing truthfulness, hygienic principles, forgiveness, and mercifulness.” and extending to:
