What do you think about the television?
I completely agree with the words of Helen Buss Mitchell in “Roots of knowledge”… Where it is said…. “TV is the only medium of mass communication which is really democratic. It is the first big medium, accessible to all and which is managed according to the will of the people. The appalling thing is what the people want”….
Prabhuji, you do not belong to ISKCON, nor to those of IRM, neither to the Rittviks nor to those of the VNN, not to VRINDA ,Caitanya Saraswati Math or the Gaudiya Math. Could you tell me whom do you belong to?
I’ll quote these words of Einstein…

te pi yanti param gatim
“O son of Prtha, those who take shelter in Me, though they be of lower birth–women, vaisyas [merchants], as well as sudras [workers]–can approach the supreme destination.”
And I’m asking you, dear Polanko, can one approach the supreme destination without taking Sanyass?
I think that in the spiritual plane we can’t make this kind of distinctions… don’t be such a chauvinist, dear… see, many times women surpass men, in matters like renunciation…
Dear Master, can you tell me what is the origin or the meaning of the name “Radha”? Thanks.
