    Yes. Thank you.  Very appreciated.

    If the teacher doesn’t inform us of this, and I am myself clueless, this is problematic.

    If I seek Order in my spiritual studies, which is clearly organized and understood, where do I go?  I am sorry to say but when I come in contact with Krishna Consciousness movement, I am quickly turned off.  So I hope there are other viable options.

    Thank you again for your precious time. Blessings.

    Hello sir, thank you for your reply. Will do.

    As you know, in today’s modern age, most courses are now online.  So we are more 100 students who watch recordings and have weekly 2 hour meetings.  It’s more of a self study course than anything else, with structure and a general guidance.  For those who want to dive into greater understanding, you must read other reference books and do your own research, which is why I reach out to you.  Perhaps when we will meet up with the cohort Live in India, and be for a whole week with the guru, we can then address deeper topics and have more space for such profound conversations.  One cannot grasp this immense content in just a few minutes. I appreciate your concern. If you have any other recommendations, please do not hesitate. Blessings!

    Hi Ashish.

    Considering what you have stated above, what do you make of Dikshas where spiritual power is transferred to disciple to help awaken his or her kundalini for example or other shaktis?

    Thank you sir.

    • Only God can say that there is something superior to Him. Nobody else is allowed to make that statement.
    • He established Srimati Radha as the personality who controls Krishna, not by force but by love.

    Hi Ashish.  If Krishna is the supreme personality of God, i.e.: God, how can there be something greater?  If Radha is superior to Krishna, and Krsn is God, then what or who is Srimati Radha exactly?  Radha is the Shakti of Krisna, which arouses him?  I am confused sir.

    Thank you!

    In other words, there is so much to learn.  Of course, you have put in the time, this is evident, and I have tremendous respect for this, but where would. a person go to learn step by step all that you have learned, or at least, part of it, with clarity and distinction.

    There are your books of course.  Any other recommendations?

    Thank you.

    This is amazing sir.  God bless you.  Thank you.

    So if I am not mistaken, your primary way of teaching is via your books. Correct? However, you are not a swami, nor representative of any Bhakti school?  Where would you recommend a person go to learn the practical science if they were so inclined?

    I purchased 13 or 14 of your books last summer.  You have renewed my zeal.  I wish to thank you very much for taking the time to respond to my questions.

    Blessings

    Brother.  I very much appreciate you taking the time to respond to me in such great detail.  As usual, your texts are extremely enlightening. In your mind, things are extremely clear and sharp.  

    If you allow me to ask you a few more question as a response, it would be much appreciated.  Please note that my objective is not to challenge you, but simply push further my own reflection with your assistance:

    Is your understanding not-based on interpretations of the Sacred Texts?  Could the same Texts not be understood completely differently?  Or are they organized to show a very clear non-negotiable picture that has been misdiagnosed over the years due to mental confusion or I am not sure what?  Is it safe to assume then that Veda Vyasa must as been a Vaishnava if the entirety of the Sacred Texts point to the same fundamental truth and organizing principle?  How can we trust that Vyasa compiled the Works properly and not based on his own interpretations?

    In order to see the Whole Picture, mustn’t an individual read all texts?  How can one accomplish this? And even if we succeed in reading all the text, who’s to say that we have organized them appropriately in our mind’s eye?  Are we not tainted by the Lineage we subscribe to?

    How can we arrive at the truth by reading the Veda’s, that is my concern?  How can I trust a teacher if he himself is tainted by his teachers and we are all somehow bound to Sacred Texts and their interpretations?

    When I read the Sacred Texts, I only see bits and pieces.  I can accept that my vision is limited.  But whom can I trust then?  Who has read the entire corpus? And how can I trust their synthesis? What am I missing here?

    I trust that you receive what my fundamental concerns via my multiple questions.  I am not certain how to better word them.

    Thank you Ashish.  Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.
