By the way, the act of giving financial benefits to an individual in exchange for his monetary donations (besides being illegal) is the very non-transparent management that would result in thousands of donors suspending further support to a temple. It is amazing that you are expecting an ISKCON temple to engage in illegal activity for your personal financial gain, while at the same time complaining about “transparent management”. Completely amazing!

In the corporate world, or even in government fields, buying supplies from a known person at a higher price is illegal. It is corruption plain and simple. ISKCON is not here to make your business run good, nor to engage in illegal corrupt practices. You criticize ISKCON temples for wanting to go to India and buy cheaper incense, instead of buying it from you. Why do YOU go to India to buy the incense cheaply instead of buying from ISKCON? For you to go buy the incense cheaply is good business sense, but if ISKCON wants to go an buy it cheaply then there is something wrong with them. Even after being connected to ISKCON for so long you don’t have a clue as to the purpose of ISKCON. Here’s a hint, it’s not here to make your business a success.

The devotee who commented above is insane if he expects temples to buy incense from him at a high rate in exchange for his donations. Why shouldn’t the temple go to India and get the incense at the best rate and quality? Why should they buy from a devotee leech at a higher rate simply to make you profit, so that you will give them a small percentage of that profit back as a donation? Just another example of a devotee who wants to benefit from ISKCON but not sacrifice anything for it.
