November 6th 2020 – Health

Jaya Prabhupada! During my preaching career, I have several times taken a break from giving classes. I have done this for two basic reasons: health and writing.
In fact, nothing gives me more pleasure than trying to serve Prabhupada and his devotees by teaching Krishna consciousness. November 6th 2020 – Health

A Message from H.D.Goswami – Time to rest and write

In order to maintain good health, and complete my rendition of the Maha-bharata, I will be suspending all classes starting on January 1, 2021. I will continue to give a Bhagavatam class on Sunday. I will resume A Message from H.D.Goswami – Time to rest and write

I accept the Gītā because it is powerfully rational and best explains my experience of the world. I don’t believe on faith alone, but rather because the Gītā perfectly describes my experience of the world. Further, reading the Gītā refines and enhances my experiences so that can see many things that present themselves to me as self-evident. #hdg #hdgoswami #gita

There is an important socio-historical point: ISKCON is a large society with all kinds of people, with a full range of human pscychologies, healthy and unhealthy. As we know, throughout history, and across religious boundaries, some people with notably imperfect character and psychology become leaders at various levels in religious organizations. That is certainly true in ISKCON, even with people who follow external principles.

We have all struggled with this. We should remember that ISKCON is a society, and within a society, we  must find a community where we feel we fit, where we respect the other members, not just because they are officially devotees, but because we really like and admire their character.

Yudhisthira was too submissive to Dhrtarastra. Ultimately, no one is required to follow an ‘authority’ who is plotting against one’s true interest. That is the lesson of Bali Maharaja and Sukracarya. #hdg #hdgoswami #community #prabhupada #iskcon
