Srila Giri Maharaja ”Hope For A Confused Person”

Date: 12/20/22

Dear “the real gaudiya guru parampara”,

For the sake of expediency I will assume you are the one who previously wrote to me using the name ”the real guru parampara” and your current email is in response to my reply to you.

Your reply (below) to my email to you dated 12/11/22 does not answer any of the questions I posed to you regarding your identity.

As I wrote to you previously: “If you want to be taken seriously you must identify yourself.”

You did not do that. It means, as I suspected, you have no guru and cannot identify yourself as belonging to any guru parampara except, possibly, one you imagine for yourself.

It is unfortunate for you that you could not reply to these simple questions I asked in my last email to you.

What is your name?

Where do you live?

Who is your guru (the guru of what you call “the real guru parampara”)?

Who is your guru’s guru?

Fortunately, you have an attraction for our website and continue to study it in your search to find meaning for your life. This is similar in benefit to “regular attendance in classes on the Bhāgavatam”, as found in the verse following below.

If you continue your practice of studying our website you will find it becomes more and more appealing as ”all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed” and your taste for ”loving service unto the Personality of Godhead . . . is established.”

ŚB 1.2.18

naṣṭa-prāyeṣv abhadreṣu
nityaṁ bhāgavata-sevayā
bhagavaty uttama-śloke
bhaktir bhavati naiṣṭhikī

By regular attendance in classes on the Bhāgavatam and by rendering of service to the pure devotee, all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed, and loving service unto the Personality of Godhead, who is praised with transcendental songs, is established as an irrevocable fact.

In the unlikely event you are not also known as “the real guru parampara” and are a different confused person, please answer the same questions above that I previously posed to him.

I wish you all good fortune in your endeavors to find yourself and the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna.
