Question: I have a question and I would be grateful should you be able to answer it for me. Why does ISKCON not accept Evolution which has withstood criticism for over 150 years? I have read some of the works of Cremo & Thompson yet I cannot but be surprised at how evolution is not accepted within ISKCON?

Question: Our son Yadunandana (4.5 yrs) came one day after the school (run by devotees) and asked why he had to say "excuse me" after belching. We can hear Srila Prabhupada sometimes making heavy noises during the class and we have seen many sanyassis pass air or belch and say nothing. Could you please explain how one should behave according to vaisnava ettiquete when one happens to burp, belch or spit etc. while with others?

Question: As far as, your very straight forward and strict (uncompromised) preaching mood is concerned, myself sometime feels a tinge of confusion as to what we should be necessary following – either we should go with a mood of not to compromise as far as philosophy, principles and instructions are concerned or in case of preaching neophytes and in mood of compassion if we are lenient at certain places, then that is alright?
