Question:

In one of Maharaja’s answers, he mentioned that it is not respectful to begin a letter with Hare Krishna/Haribol when it is addressed to seniors. My question is; will this be applicable when physically addressing while showing pranam i.e do we need to just show pranam and wait till the senior devotee say Hare Krishna and then respond with Hare Krishna?

Do we only offer dandavats to our diksa-guru not the other gurus or sannyasis in temple hall in front of Srila Prabhupada or the deities?

Question:

In the Nectar of Devotion, Part1 Chapter 9, Further Consider of Devotional Principles, Srila Prabhupada says and I quote–The Padma Purana also mentions, “A person whose body is decorated with the pulp of sandalwood, with paintings of the holy name of the Lord, is delivered from all sinful reactions, and after his death he goes directly to Krishnaloka to live in association with the Supreme Personality of Godhead.”

Does this authenticate tattooing our body which I have seen is prevalent in Iskcon on North America?
