This has been interesting, but one hastens to add need and want for mutual respect what to speak of Vaishanava Etiquette. Otherwise simply getting too attached to aspects of the temporary material world. Maya Devi is doing good service! I think Srila Prabhupada gives example of Tal fruit and people discussing how it fell etc. whilst boy came and took fruit.
We don‚Äôt want to cause apparadh over a not so important thing in the grand scheme of things.
1 Devotee said go to original source this is fair and wise. Many people are writing books about Prabhupada.
Only one mahabhagavata recognises another.
If you want to know me, then you must know about me from me. You can not speculate about me. [S.P. Room Conversation with Reporter June 4, 1976, Los Angeles]
So that means, anyway, if you want to know about me, then you must know from me.
That is authentic. [Bhagavad-gita Lecture, 3.17-20, New York, May 27, 1966]

comment no (3) ‚Äúpractically all ancient astronomers knew very well that Moon is the closest celestial object. ‚ÄĚ This totally unsubstantiated. The rest of the points have been shown to be wrong by Shamsunder Prabhu.
Is it not mildly amusing that persons with imperfect senses and conditioned speak so authoritatively without reference or realisation very often. This is condemned by Srila Prabhupada: gentlemen does not speak beyond his realisation and Gour Govinda Maraj: Sadhu never speaks theoretically.
What happened to a bit of humility. Personalities like Srila Prabhupada who are self-realised and only here for our benefit have this as picked up by others so called outsiders but maybe they are more inside, for example George Hari-son

Blew my mind, I realised not to judge from this. Also I am not a devotee yet, got long long way to go. These guys although considered rightly or wrongly materially wretched, sound so humble and write very clearly. They are not culturalised by ISKCON which is sometimes a turn off for karmis but just have the message direct and simple and sweet from Prabhupada. I now realise the importance of book distribution and how Maha
prabhu is MaVadanya and Para duka duki. YOU devotees are in this mood. all glories to your service, feel v inspired.

Hare Krishna! All glories to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada. Pamho
All glories to RadhaRamana Prabhu & collegues for doing the program and reporting on it. It is not always an easy thing to do amongst a community who quite often revel in not following the four regs!
Especially thankyou for posting Maraj script. I tried to have a go imagining it was me then saw Maraj presentation and saw many of my shortcomings in expression, very useful, thanks again.
If one can serve in any regard be glad too, for next time.
Also sound advice from the Prabhu that commented, guarding against being sentimental and sensationalising.
This is family, guiding each other, speaking our mind without envy, fear and false ego = ISKCON (transcendental)
otherwise it is merely mundane religion
