My response regarding the design of the TVP

Dear Ambarisa Prabhu,

Thank you very much for expressing openness to consider non-structural alterations.

I have a specific question on your sentence: “we practically require a larger Temple now.”

What is the difference in capacity (number of people fitting) between the existing facilities (the combined Radha-Madhava-asta-sakhis’ and Panca-tattva’s temple rooms) and the planned temple room?

Your servant, Kaunteya Das
PS - as you say: “we are not limited to one large Temple.” I agree; I wouldn’t be surprised if the planned building will eventually be locally known as the “old temple.” That might constitute a situation welcome to everyone involved. In any case your name will be positively and gratefully remembered in connection with the manifested and extended pastimes of Srila Prabhupada.

The Expansion of Christ Consciousness - Parallels with ISKCON

(Response to comment no. 8) Thank you very much Prabhu for the posting. It certainly inspired me to continue writing.

By the way, there are many more articles (and also essays and free e-books) by different authors, on community dynamics in the site of the ISKCON Congregational Development Ministry: You are welcome to visit there too.

Thank you for your comments Srimanta Prabhu.

You wrote:

“Krsna only wants those devotees who are pure in devotion.”

Actually Lord Krishna Himself declares: “[F]our kinds of pious men begin to render devotional service unto Me” (Bg 7.16).

Srila Prabhupada explains: “These are not pure devotees, because they have some aspiration to fulfill in exchange for devotional service . . . When these four kinds of persons come to the Supreme Lord for devotional service and are completely purified by the association of a pure devotee, they also become pure devotees. “

So, it would certainly be unrealistic to expect or demand that everyone should be pure at the beginning of their practice of bhakti-yoga. The policy should be to offer them exemplary association and training for their quick development.

Although they might not yet be perfect, Krishna defines the newcomers as “magnanimous souls” (Bg 7.18) and certainly He welcomes them into the fold of His sankirtan movement for their further advancement.

In the purport Srila Prabhupada elaborates: “It is not that devotees who are less complete in knowledge are not dear to the Lord. The Lord says that all are magnanimous because anyone who comes to the Lord for any purpose is called a mahatma, or great soul.”
