Please stop all of this major bickering with one another. It is very
displeasing to Srila Prabhupada. It's displeasing to anyone with a sense
There is the rtviks fighting with the non-rtviks, those who re-edited
Srila Prabhupada's books up against others who believe they should not
have been re-edited. Then you have the third sex advocates -- and even
after reading their letters, I still can't figure out what they are trying
to get across -- that some people were/are gay when they joined? I don't
think that that is anything new. And editorials regarding devotees' tax
evasion tactics being bad for the movement! My God. I only pray that
Srila Prabhupada is still giving us his blessings because it sure does not
feel like it. When I come to this website or chakra website it just makes
me more and more confused and doubtful about this movement.
Don't you know that new people like myself who come to the Hare Krishna
movement looking for a real religion that works become discouraged. And
why should they not -- everyday I read something about one senior devotee
hating or fighting with another.
It is a sick environment. It is not healthy. It is a dysfunctional
family at best. Please get professional help!
If you ever intend to even maintain Srila Prabhupada's movement what to
speak of making it grow, then please, let's have some kindess and respect
for each other -- for the sake of Srila Prabhupada's movement.
If you cannot manage that, then it is all spoiled.
