My dear devotees,

I would like to clarify my intentions in my article “Treating Vaisnavas with Care.” In what I posted I meant not to take sides but only to extract principles of conduct that I thought Satyaraja Prabhu had rightly brought to our attention.

I have the deepest affection and appreciation for many gurukula alumni, and for their families and friends and well-wishers. I wish only the best for them. At the same time, I wish only the best for Dhanurdhara Swami as well. And I feel that what is best for all will come about when somehow or other, by the grace of Srila Prabhupada, we can heal some of the old wounds–and avoid creating new ones–and all come closer in Krsna consciousness.

So my simple, heartfelt appeal to all concerned is that we respect each other as Vaisnavas and deal with each other as Vaisanavas, under Srila Prabhupada’s eternal guidance and protection.

I know that there are many philosophical and practical issues to be considered in relation to Dhanurdhara Swami and our Society, and I am sure that there are many devotees more competent than I to deal with them. I leave these devotees to do their work, and try to help where I can. But more than anything else, I pray to Srila Prabhupada to keep me in the association of his sincere followers and allow me to serve them–as he would want–eternally. Because I know that in the association of his sincere followers, I will find Srila Prabhupada, my most cherished goal.

Thank you. Hare Krishna.

Your humble servant, Giriraj Swami

Dear Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Despite having “taken sides” (in support of DDS) in relation to this issue, I want to thank you for bringing the real matters- Krsna Consciousness, Vaisnava Consciousness, and Srila Prabhupada Consciousness- to light. Now that we have been adequately reminded and en”light”ened, may we also take those most important matters to heart.

Your servant,
Sundara nanda-gopala dasa (Rabindra-svaraup Prabhu’s sisya)
