Hare Krsna, dandavats to all! AGTSP!
Thank you very much for Sugriva prabhu for his very nice point.
I read Bhakti Ratnakara and Prema Vilasa book, in these books there is a lot of things about the amazing character of Sri Jahnava mata. Please note that not in any of these books she is called ‘prabhu’, although very respected even by the goswamis of Vrindavana and quoted in the song ‘Jay Radha, Jay Krsna’ and have her eternal place in Radha Kunda with so many great souls. In these books she is called “Sri”, “Sri Isvari”, “Srimati”, and when she was in the very first famous festivals she was cooking for all the devotees and Srinivas Acarya was giving class. in the Prema Vilasa book it said that she was also Viracandra prabhu’s spiritual master (he was son of the another wife of Nityananda prabhu).
So, coming back to the point I’d like to say that I loved Devaki Mataji’s article and she was very brave to say the truth and I was very proud of all the devotees that very soberly support her, it is so nice to see how the prabhus and matajis are in line with Srila Prabhupada’s teachings and not afraid of any politics.
I’m in ISKCON for 24 years and I’m also engage in preaching activities, and I just want to share with you that we don’t need any title for doing preaching, we just need commitment with the order of the spiritual master, that’s all, like Srila Prabhupada said “I have no personal qualification”.
If a woman will be a diksha guru, if she is qualified to do so, we don’t need any petition, she will be recognized!
There are so many condition souls in need of this Maha Mantra, in need of Srila Prabhupada’s books, and we can feel completely ecstatic doing service in that way without any title, position, nothing, actually you feel so connected to Krsna and guru that you feel completely satisfied to be a servant of the servant.
I hope that my 2 cents contribution doesn’t irritate anyone.
your servant at Srila Prabhupada’s mission

Dear Graham I’m so happy to see how wonderful was the program. Thank you very much for your fantastic service to Srila Prabhupada and all our previous acharyas. They surely are very happy with you and they are giving you all blessings. Why? Because you are presenting ISKCON practices ‘as it is’. Now all these academics have a bonafide source to research about the purposes of the Sankirtan movement.
But how you could interpreted in a true way? How you could have this vision, sometimes difficult even for an initiated devotee? We only can say that you approached Lord Krishna and Srila Prabhupada in a very sincere and honest way! Congratulations, you are a very rare and very intelligent person.
Looking forward to see you in Sri Mayapur,

Hare Krishna dear devotees. Please accept my humble obeisances!
Srila Prabhupada already give his clear instructions about preaching in devotional clothes or not .”Vaishnava dress” or “Vaikunta dress”. These are his words. Srila Prabhupada already wrote in the Srimad Bhagavatam 7 canto:
āā¦.In our Krishna consciousness movement, the tactic of dressing oneself like an ordinary karmi is necessary because everyone in the demoniac kingdom is against the Vaishnava teachingsā¦. Thus what was done by Hiranyakashipu long, long ago is still being done. That is the way of materialistic life. Demons or materialists do not at all like the advancement of Krishna consciousness, and they try to hinder it in many ways. Yet the preachers of Krishna consciousness must go forward — in their Vaishnava dress or any other — for the purpose of preachingā¦.(SB 7.5.7 purport).”
I’m wondering that when Srila Prabhupada’s disciples will disappear from this world what “We” from 2nd generation will do, because I have seen many devotees that they openly disagree with Srila Prabhupada’s instructions.
Srila Prabhupada already knew that people from different religions were wearing dothi, but he was wearing it, then he also called it “vaishnava dress”. Who knows things better then him?! Some devotees must go inside themselves and decide what they want. Yasya prasada Bhagavat prasada yasyaa prasadan na gati kutopi “With guru’s mercy we can have Krishna’s mercy, without guru’s mercy we cannot have Krishna’s mercy.
These discussions can become “Guru aparadha” very easy, and we are going nowhere with them. Nitai goura Hari bol!!
