Haridasa Thakura dasa: Hare Krishna Dear Editor, In this world, fault can be found wherever we want to see it. Therefore it is incumbent upon us to purify our hearts by sincerely following the process of Krishna consciousness as best as we can. By purifying our heart we purify our vision, in fact the whole world takes on a different hue. At this point in my life I am just beginning to really appreciate what it means to see the good over the bad. It is as if the bad (so called) has become a distant old friend and the good has taken on a new prominence that tells me that this process actually works. I like Dandavats very much as it fulfills a role for the devotee who would like to impart something to devotees in general but does not have the skills to be a BTG writer. It’s just so nice to write and feel that one has contributed something.

Long may Dandavats reign.

Your servant, Haridasa Thakura dasa

1 Kesava Krsna dasa

Dear Prabhuji,

You expressed your sentiments nicely, but a niggling doubt arose. Your mention that this Dandavats website is for devotees who lack the writing skills to make the pages of our Back To Godhead magazine, is I feel, not quite true.

If we look at which devotees have contributed to this site, some have certainly written for Back To Godhead magazine. There are many intelligent and skilled writers who write here on issues concerning devotee life that perhaps are sometimes a little too contentious, or touchy for the general public. In other words, what differentiates Dandavats from Back to Godhead is the level of sensitivity of the topics aired.

Back To Godhead editorial policy seldom allows sensitive or controversial subjects to be written, and Dandavats fulfils this need in a balanced way, and for the benefit of the devotee community.

Ys, Kesava Krsna Dasa.

Following up on what Kesava Krishna said, it is also a lot less formal here in this blog-type atmosphere, combining the written word with a the more immediate and intimate sense of a conversation or kind of virtual istha-ghosthi.

For better or worse, on Dandavats we can just let fly with our reaction to something, without worrying too much about whether it is suitable for the BTG format or even whether it is carefully thought through.

I have met a number of people on Dandavats and I feel in a way that I am making new friends, just as if we all went on pilgrimage together or something. Our talks are friendly, not “useless” or “idle” in any sense.

In the spirit of seeing the good over the bad, it is not very hard to see lots of good in both BTG and Dandavats, and to see the good in Haridas Thakur Prabhu’s inspiration to glorify this web site. There are lots of good devotees out there with computers all over the world felling lots of good support and inspiration from the cyber-sanga we get here. :-)
