‘On the other hand, if someone is called upon to speak on behalf of ISKCON, there may be reasons to restrict the group of eligible persons who can perform that service, so that ISKCONâ€™s message is properly presented.’
Yes. The standards for our representatives should be of the highest level. But the MOOD of our representatives should be unjudgemental and all encouraging. The goal is to bring the fallen souls to Krishna, not restrict their access.

I recall a quote by a senior swami, ‘Krishna Consciousness is for everyone but initiation isn’t.’ And isn’t that the crux of this? Everyone should be encouraged to serve Krishna with love; in whatever way they are able. But for those who would like to take initiation there are stricter rules and regulations.
Because there are very few people who are able to follow the rules and regulations but there are many who are able to do loving service to Krishna, we should encourage inclusiveness more than exclusiveness.

- ‘Could devotee screenwriters and directors put together influential films about Vedic culture and literature in a way that would attract interest in Krishna philosophy and would not be cheap or cheesy?’
Yes, I’m sure. But they’ll need money, lots of it. And the money people are only going to give money to ‘names’, a well-known director or actor. So you need a well-known director,or actor to get behind your project and then there’s a chance of something getting made.
Or you need a devotee well-wisher with deep pockets to fund it privately. But he/she needs very deep pockets. These are epic’s we’re talking about not small coffee house drama’s and most likely epics with heavy CG (computer graphic) work.
But still lets aim for the stars!
