Reply To Euro GBC Statement
Posted February 22, 2008
Dear Dina Sharana prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I would like to thank you for providing us with a clear and unambiguous GBC position on Mother Narahari's case. Since Sunil Zaveri prabhu addressed all the issues covered in your letter I will be brief.
We are all very glad that thanks to the public discussion of Mother Narahari's case both sides are now moving closer to a mutually acceptable solution. Thank you very much for understanding our concerns and willingness to address them.
I especially applaud your efforts to recover 150 euros of Lord Nrsimhadeva's money from a young bhakta who recently married Narahari mataji's niece. Srila Prabhupada was very strict when it comes to the misuse of ISKCON's funds and very frugal in his practical approach to money matters. I sincerely hope that you also make every effort to recover the vast sums of money that were previously misspent, misappropriated, or misused in some other way by the devotees holding positions of power in the previous ISKCON administration. Recovery of these monies would go a long way towards improving the dire financial situation of the German yatra. I would also hope that all the monies collected in the name of ISKCON by the current gurus, sannyasis, and other prominent devotees are properly accounted for. The leaders must lead by example and follow the same rules they expect others to follow.
We deeply appreciate all sincere devotees like your good self who perform the often thankless and under-appreciated task of administration in ISKCON.
