Srila B.K. Giri ”Why I will not visit the Navadwipa Math”

Recently I received this comment from someone calling himself Swami B.A Keshav:

sad you seem so angry.
why not go to India and make amends you are well-come always as an acarya at sri chaitanya saraswat math, please not to air your dirty laundry in public

These remarks are at once childish, foolish, ill-defined, imprecise, ill-informed and misdirected. For now I leave it to you to decide which of my terms should be applied to his various scattered thoughts, conclusions and invectives. I may [Read More...]

Date: 3/25/13

To: Sriman Dayalu Dulal dasa Adhikari

My obeisances Dayalu Prabhu,

I am very much happy to converse with you always.

Because you are always introducing some subject about Krishna, His devotees, philosophy of KC, etc. This always leads to happy talks:

mac-citta mad-gata-prana
bodhayantah parasparam
kathayantas ca mam nityam
tusyanti ca ramanti ca

I looked up the reference to the foot bite of Takshaka:

Srila Giri Maharaja “Your Initiation Was Not Cancelled”

Prologue:

In October of 2011 Sriman Navasundara dasa wrote the following to me regarding a conversation he had with Srila Govinda Maharaja after Sagara Maharaja left his sannyasa to marry.

On the subject of Sripad Sagar Maharaja, i can only repeat what I heard Gurudev say to someone i know well and what he himself said to me.

“No one has gained so much and lost so much” “He (Sagar) will be okay but those that follow him will go to hell” and [Read More...]

Please accept my humble obeisances.

On Oct 25, 2018, after learning you had a practice of going out for book distribution during the winter holidays season, I sent you an email containing some quotations regarding the glories of book distribution, book distributors and our gurus’ high appreciation for both. Among them was this one from Srila Sridhara Maharaja.

Srila Sridhara Maharaja: By canvassers in Navadwīpa, then Calcutta, [Read More...]

Sola Scriptura = Sola “Broken People”

5/4/22

Mr. Deace,

During your program yesterday (May 3, 2022) you repeated a common theme of yours “there are only broken people”, aka “all men are sinners.”

If all men are sinners the implication is this: God is powerless to make one sinless. A statement that cannot be true, for God’s power is unlimited. If you say he created one sinless person, Jesus, that only moves the problem one step away for it places another limit on God; he can create a sinless person, but only one.

“Putin- A Great Coward” 

The Cowardly Putin

Coming Soon: “Putin – The Biggest Coward of Them All”

Since the beginning of Russia’s surreptitious invasion of Ukraine in 2014 I have observed many cowardly actors in the form of leaders in the West. These include the current President of the USA and leaders of NATO member nations.

I have yet to see any leader behave in a more cowardly fashion than President Putin of Russia or any actors showing more bravery than the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, certain members of his [Read More...]
