By Malati Devi Dasi
It is said, the wheels of justice slowly grind, and they grind exceedingly fine. And sometimes, beyond the slow wheels of “justice,” it seems that it is time to “do the right thing.” Silence = Death (this was the motto of Act Up, an early AIDS advocacy group). I cannot remain “silent” any longer.
I used to counsel warring factions in the Brahmacarini Ashram days of Columbus:
“Being “right” doesn’t make you “right” (or, doesn’t mean anything) if everyone else is disturbed.”
I humbly ask DDS to consider this: Right or wrong, you are wrong if you cannot hear the strong voices of recommendation that are entering the ether and the Internet. Even if you are 108% “right,” you are 100000000008% wrong if you cannot accept the voices of the devotees who are calling out loud and clear for you and the GBC to “do the right thing.”
