I am sorry to hear this

Dear Auttareyaji I am very, very sorry to hear about your depression. I can relate to it. It must have been terrible for you to have gone through this, especially while in Asia. As it was in ISKCON's interest to present the darkest picture possible, they did so. Their blocking all communication was ...

Back to persons who feel I owe them an explanation

There are some who feel I owe them an explanation or that I have to jump through their hoops to prove something to them. I understand their motives so I jump through some of them hoping there will be some other response than their bitterness. After all, when we feel hurt we wish to express it and ge...

It is interesting, at least

OK, let's look at the problem in this way. Auttareya represents, I assume, quite a few people who feel that I did something "wrong" or "harmful" to them, as well as others who feel I do harm to myself or others now. He is expressing this. I know this is not interesting to most who have gone on this ...

Sorry that last post was from me, Hari

Somehow this forum takes me out of my login when I send messages. But that last comment on the meditation was indeed from me.

Back to the discussion with Auttareya

I am trying hard, Auttareyaji, to understand what it is you really want from this discussion and what it is you want from me. As I read your comments, it seems you are eager to chastise me for my offenses against you, and I accept your chastisement. You also seem to be pushing for me to define mysel...

One who does not want - searches for causes and one who wants - searches for ways.
This is a very good signature. Where did you quote it from? Or did you invent this yourself?

I appreciate your comments. Thank you. :)

Dear Kulapavanaji Once again I thank you for your insightful comment. I appreciate it. Although I am aware that people do like to accept easy explanations that fit within their world-view, such explanations never satisfied me. Problems arise when I give non-standard explanations that challenge other...

As I said, I would answer my question, not yours. As your question was vague, how could I properly answer it? Now that you have clarified your question, I can address it better. I disagree that I did not give any explanation for leaving ISKCON. I gave many explanations. Those that were posted to COM...

Who I am for you depends quite a lot on who you are. If you are well aware of who you are, you will also be aware of who others are in relation to you. Although this sounds obvious, it is often not understood. If you were to ask me, "How would you define yourself in relation to what you are doing wi...

Hi Kulaji! Nice to see you on the forum. :lol: I agree with what you have said completely. People are looking for deeper experiences of their being. I see that philosophy, ritual, and certainly fundamentalism, are being rapidly rejected by those who desire to be in touch with their essence and in to...
