Book distribution question: Michael Jackson

YES! When I lived in LA ,one black bodied devotee who went to the airport every day(was his name ragunath?) told me he was suprised one day when there was an announcement that MJ was in the airport at such and such a gate. He rushed over and there he was. He said he was surrounded by security guards but was able to give him a book and he put it in his personal bag.
Jai Prabhupada!

Nine Reasons to Change the Design of the TVP

I have to agree with Mother Ramani. The survey is being undertaken by those against the design. It is like the Obama camp organizing a poll on whether Mccain should be president.
In the mood of disclosure, I must say I like the design.
Having walked around India on Padayatra, I wonder what is meant by an authentic “Indian” design. Do you mean like the Badrinath temple in Badrikashrama that looks like a Swiss ski chalet? What about Sri Ranganath or Minakshee Devi temples in the South that look like Pyramids with horns covered in Deities?
What about the Puri temple that resembles a giant lingam with a giant Michelin tire on top? It kind of resembles Madan- Mohan in Vrndavana - but not really.
Have you seen the Brihadishwara Temple in Thanjavur? It is accepted by scholars as being one of the oldest temple in India and it’s greatest architectural gem. It looks like a rocket ship!
What about the Dwarkadisha temple? Udupi or Tirumala? Shall I go on?
I will say that when I was travelling in Washington D.C. in 1988 with my Gurudeva H.H.Lokanath Maharaja (who I accept as being genuinely Indian), when he first set eyes on the Capitol building, he smiled and said “It is just like an Indian temple!” I remember this clearly, because it was during this car ride, I got one of those lifelong instructions that you don’t forget.
After seeing the Capitol,we were passing by the different white marble edifices like the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, the Supreme Court and National Archives buildings when my Guru turned to me and said ” Actually, everything is very nice. We simply want to change the consciousness!”
This was really important for me to hear, as in my neophyte condition, I believed that anything remotely American had to be vaporised for the Golden Age to ensue.
