At this point I was getting a little worried because either it was a bomb and the whole building would be history or it was a hoax but they might decide to do a 'controlled explosion' which would still result in significant damage. In my mind I was rehearsing the phone call to the insurance company the next day and all I was hearing back was “Unfortunately your policy does not cover you for acts of terrorism”...

I felt that the fruits of my preaching had finally ripened. I relished the result of the patience that I had practiced over the long term of coaxing him to become very serious about his spiritual life. I felt very proud that he, indeed, had taken my suggestion to heart and was even considering having the fire sacrifice.

For first time visitors excessive cartal racket makes the experience of the kirtan more like a rock concert. Trying to project over the sound of cartals can cause the entire kirtan volume to rise to excessive levels.

Of course, devotees are not expecting service for themselves, but if you go to a temple where none is interested to help you, to speak to you, you may wonder what kind of impression it will leave to someone visiting first time. Very opulent surroundings, elaborate puja and loud kirtans are not much helpfull, if devotees are not interested about visitors.

My thoughts on this are partly in response to seeing (on this site) the model of the proposed temple to be built in Mayapura. I'd like to see the setting for the temple be as moving as the structure itself, or more so. Perhaps there could be a botanical garden/arboretum incorporated into the plan.
