Thank you for reminding us once again what a blessing it is to have Dandavats.

I know a lot of old-timer householders who are inspired by joining in cyber-discussions. The thing i love about Dandavats is that the editorial policy, though sometimes frustrating devotees by not publishing their posts, actually tends to keep the environment relatively positive and free from the rancor that is common on blog sites.

I tell everyone I know how much benefit I find from logging in and joining the discussions here.

…For we householders, is one way to draw us back to Krishna again and again….The association with devotees, including through the agency of, helps us to keep strong, determined, and also open to the wonder that is Krishna consciousness.

My dandavats to all of you for doing this service for all the devotees.
Prabhupada is as present as we keep him present and this service of certainly keeps our Prabhupada in the present. dunyavat and pranams :)

————————————- is so professional and is serving the devotional community so well. I’m often asked what I think of ISKCON, and I always reply sincerely that I love ISKCON — I was born in ISKCON (spiritually speaking). So I admire your efforts to serve Srila Prabhupada’s mission by remaining positive and devoted, no matter what. One time Prabhupada was asked how we know if our service is pleasing to Krishna, and he replied that if the devotees are pleased, then Krishna is pleased..So please hang in there, Prabhu, and rest assured that you’re serving the devotees nicely. Please carry on — and a word to the wise, don’t stop your website, no matter what. It ain’t worth it!. ;) You’re helping a lot of devotees in Krishna Consciousness, me included.

Once again, thank you very much
Stay strong and thrive!
(And thanks again.)

I would just like to give thanks for your efforts in maintaining the dandavats site. It is a good forum to keep the spirit of vaisnava discussion in an open and thoughtfully conceived space. I feel it provides a much needed forum for devotees and friends alike.

Dandavats website has kept me alive in this unkind world of Maya. This small donation is nothing compared to what I get from the website. Dandavats website and Radha Shyam ki Jai!

Dandavats is a very nice Krishna Conciousness webite, and I really enjoy reading what the various devotees have to say on different subjects.

Thank you very much,

Haribol, Praghosa Prabhu (or whomever is assisting him). I love Dandavats. In the ISKCON universe, Dandavats is the most pure site online. Thanks so much.

Kalakantha das – March 18, 2008
Thank you prabhus for your service with Dandavats. It is very nicely done, and a real relief to go to a devotee web site without have to read of someone’s criticisms of this or that person or this or that thing. It’s really a Vaikuntha atmosphere!

Jaya Prabhupada! Dhanesvara Das Sun, January 27, 2008 12:47 am
As a humble member of ISKCON, I am most encouraged with your work.

I can certainly agree to the importance of this web site, and the vacuum it fills in cyberspace. I have always found the articles and opinions open, frank, and ultimately inspiring.

Thank all of you for your important service to Srila Prabhupada.

Your servant, Ambarisa das – February 14, 2008
Great service. Appreciate very much. Has been needed for years. Probably we would have lost a lot of men and women less. All the Best

By the way, Dandavats is the best site for devotees that has ever been on the Net. It must take a lot of your time. Thank you.

Your servant, Urmila devi dasi – Date: 28-Dec-06
Several years back, a need developed to provide a forum for ISKCON Vaisnava discussion and Krsna conscious news—primarily due to disturbing dissident sites. Consequently, Vipramukhya Prabhu and Umapati Swami inaugurated internet sites Chakra and then later Dipika which proved very helpful.

Since then, Dandavats has emerged as the most effective effort to date and I certainly concur with Prithu Prabhu’s comment (#1) that it informs and safeguards ISKCON’s sincere devotees from having to hear irreverent philosophies, etc. found elsewhere on the net. Dandavats is without a doubt, one of ISKCON’s brightest achievements of the year. Congratulations and thanks to the staff and may Dandavats continue its excellent quality of service for a long time. Haribol! Sincerely, Danavir Goswami

Lost devotees, or “dissidents” are more valuable to ISKCON than the thousands of non-devotees whom we sell our books to, more valuable than the congregational members, donors, or even new devotees and disciples.
Dissidents are devotees, whom for one reason or another, have a misunderstanding about the process of Krishna Consciousness, which needs to be resolved, so that they may again practice Krishna Consciousness favorably.

At the same time, what ever happened that turned “dissidents” away from the Krishna Consciousness Movement must be addressed and resolved, so that new devotees and supporters don’t fall victim to the same causes, and become dissidents as well.

Dandavats. com accomplishes this nicely, by allowing reasonable discussion, and even disagreement over current Krishna Conscious philosophy, ideals, and practices.
