Hare Krishna, during the last year, increasing number of devotees are visiting my website. Many of website visitors also want to chat with me through the chat feature of my website and many of them are sending me emails. Some also want to talk with me. Generally, many people want advice of some sort. So, I would like to build some structure into this whole process.
First of all, I want to say that I am happy to talk with anybody who needs to clarify some spiritual point. I am especially interested to have conversation on following topics:
Basic Krishna consciousness - If you live far away from temple and you want to practice Krishna consciousness but you don’t have any local friends, I would be more than happy to show you the basics: how to setup altar, how to offer food, which books to read, and I can also answer any questions which some up while you are reading Srila Prabhupada’s books.
Advanced Krishna consciousness - Everybody who has questions regarding “controversial topics”, or doesn’t know how to explain those topics to other people. Prabhupada gave many statements which may require clarification, for example, “are women less intelligent”. These topics also cover gurus in Krishna consciousness, how to recognize genuine guru, and so on. I will be more than happy to discuss with you these topics.
Next question is how to organize all this. I am family man, I have many responsibilities, I have to chant my own rounds and read Prabhupada’s books and so on. So I opened several 30 minute slots each week, and you can easily register yourself through my website, there is a link in the description if you are watching this on youtube.
I prefer to talk with people, which is must faster than typing. So you should have app to communicate with me, currently, very popular ones are skype, whatsapp and facebook messenger voice.
So please, take whichever time is best for you and let’s talk about Krishna consciousness.
If you ever tried to send me email, you will have to wait for reply upto a few days, this is unfortunate reality.
If you ever contacted me through facebook chat, you will have to wait for couple of hours for reply.
Chat on my website is anonymous, and I am not always there to respond immediately. If you don’t leave your email, I don’t have any way of replying.
I will be cutting short my chats to a couple of minutes.
So the best way to talk and discuss with me is to reserve a slot, so we both know that we are free in the same time and that we can talk. Best voice chats for international calls are skype, whatsapp and facebook messenger.
So, get your email ready and pick your slot here and let’s talk.
