Fighting spirit; doesn't matter who distributes the books

    Posted on March 5, 2016



Русский перевод

Dhrstadyumna Swami appeared at the door in some anxiety. He delivered a message from Tamal Krishna Goswami that the Berkeley and Washington D.C. temple presidents had banned the Radha-Damodara buses and men from attending the San Francisco Ratha-yatra parade, and the bicentennial Independence Day celebrations on July 4th in the capital.

Prabhupada's response was instant. Delivered with a great deal of disdain he said, "So long they are engaged in sinful activity, this fighting spirit will continue!" He ordered Pusta Krsna Maharaja to contact the appropriate GBC men and have the decisions reversed. "What does it matter who distributes the books so long they get distributed?" He inquired who was in charge of the Berkeley temple. When I informed him, he condemned the man's behavior as that of a "crazy eccentric."

(From "Transcendental Diary" by Hari Sauri Prabhu)
