The Gurukula Project: from 1968 to 2010 and beyond

Noble concerns but very vague.

It would be good to know who are the team members, what are their qualifications and if they are working with ISKCON’s Education ministry?

Being a guru in Iskcon: a spiritual leadership seminar

“Someone may wonder how it is that gurus can attend training seminars.”

Why on earth would anyone wonder that?

Jehovah Witnesses quote Srila Prabhupada

This is instructive. Devotees often also quote/misquote spiritual figures from other traditions with a view to proving the superiority of Vashnavism. It is useful to see how this misbehaviour looks when we are on the receiving end.

Nine Reasons to Change the Design of the TVP

To be more precise, there are six options: approve, disapprove, disapprove, disapprove, disapprove or disapprove. When you have so many negative options and only one positive, then that is a bias which betrays its creators’ preference.

And of course, putting a survey immediately after a long explanation of why we should vote in a certain way merely adds to the bias.

The survey would be unbiased if it came after a balanced discussion of the topic and if the questions were more fairl weighted.

As it is, it’s not serious. Just another internet drama.

(btw, I don’t much like the current design, but I dislike biased internet surveys even more:)

So let’s get this straight. FIVE of the six options are “I disapprove”. It’s not what you’d call a balanced survey is it?

Happy Dolls

But the simple fact is that today, in 2008, happy dolls sounds completely lame to most people. Is the name Happy Doll supposed to be an inviolable and eternal principle, or should we use our brains?

Deities look very sweet, but the name is a bit weak. Happy Dolls? A bit passe. Not too sure about the “attractive packaging” either.
