Very interesting hodge podge of vaishnava-hindu beliefs but unsubstantiated with no reference to Srila Prabhupada or any of the acaryas in our line.
Such a lengthy article and the only reference to Srila Prabhupada is totally out of context, as if we still have some use for it, or maybe cause it still has to be mentioned somehow to give weight to the totally nonsense article. And this matajis self proclaimed “Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Bhakti Yoga Instructor” seems to me a regular mataji with the particularity that the essence of our philosophy is dangerously eluding her.
I am also into Ayurvedic Lifestyle and am a “Bhakti Yoga Instructor”, of course, what a funny name for aspiring vaishnava. Please be serious.
When did Srila Prabhupada organize a Diwali festival or included it as a regular program in ISKCON?

You do not have to put laxsmi, just make a new account every 2 or 3 months. Only if willing to call mobile or a country that is not on the list.

easier than that, you get a voipbuster or voipcheap account and call for free almost anywhere in the world. The will log you out every 15 mins, but who cares?

Dear Yugala Kishor dasa,
My experience regarding temple management (I started a temple from scratch in the 80¬īs) is that it is the simplest thing for the simple that follow strictly the basic instructions of Srila Prabhupada and do not revolve on them looping the loop, as your goodself is trying to do.
The sincerity of purpose is mainly attained by praying every day sincerely that you are a servant of the less capacitated or new devotees at your charge. You do not need to be a supermanager.
Now, you say “Vishnujana, etc they were good at leading ‚Äúin their own field.‚ÄĚ There are countless other fields in which they didn‚Äôt provide examples of their leading”
Could you please provide me ONE important field in KC that you can think of they wouldnt be good at leading?
And are not “their fields” “our fields”?
I think your words are offensive to these great souls, while trying to protect the current “status quo”.
And if you look attentively, Srila Prabhupada did not want corporation leaders, just purity and spreading of KC and the is the most simplest thing to do.
Now, if you want to follow suit with the corporation style then, yes, you need coachers, material business plans and probably soon satellites to control the ISKCON population.
By your words, you are assuming that to be an ISKCON leader material expertise is as important as spiritual maturity, or that spiritual maturity is not the most important for that matter.
Now, my question is who is gonna coach the GBC, TP, etc? The have to be more mature and advanced devotees. Then let them fill the posts and we will gain precious time.
Just trying to protect “senior” devotees that failed for many years to manage to the minimum level of acceptance.. now the excuse is they need “coaching”. Come on. You and people like you just perpetuate the mess.
Time will tell if am not right. Lets hope that ISKCON do not completely downslide to a perfect material religion with coachers and all inventions in place. Time will tell if your concoctions breed any good for our society at all.
PS: regarding “what kind of authority I hold that enables me make ‚Äėabsolute statements” I would beg you to hear what it is been said not who is saying it.

pardon me for the intromission but to my judgement you are trying to install ISKCON as a religion complete. Did all our great and true leaders like Jayananda, Vishnujan and many unknown others to date need to get “coaching”?
True humility, dedication and personalism will not come as a result of your “education” programs but by the sincerity of purpose of the devotees ready to do it.
Oh my God, would tis be a new Roman catholic but without the money and power? Tragicomic.
with all respect,

Is that new arrangement coming from the no doubt lucid brains better than Srila Prabhupada¬īs instructions on the temple and GBC authorities.
What is the need of inventing something that is already being setup by His Divine Grace?
