Suresvara dasa: On October 15th, I gave a Skype class to an international audience of devotees about seeing Srimati Ratnavali Mataji’s reincarnation story through the lens of the Bhagavad-gita.
The class was well-received, so devotees asked me to send it Dandavats for possible posting. The links to the class may be found at http://iskcon-hawaii.com/Ratnavali.html or directly from Ustream at http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/10218648.
The class runs for about an hour and a half, including the discussion afterward. I hope you can find time to listen to it because I think it provides a decent synthesis for the positive and negative comments her story has generated on Dandavats. Whether one thinks Ratnavali’s story is fact or fiction, we can all profit from the lessons it offers when we see it through the lens of the Gita.
Hope you are well and look forward to hearing your response to the class.
Your grateful servant,
