Dear Bhakta Richard,

Receive my blessings. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.



I think it’s time for you to understand what is a Guru, what is a disciple and what should be their relationship.

You have to reconsider what should be the topics to discuss and what questions are proper or improper.

Here are some examples to better and quicker understanding of the issue.


You don’t ask to the Guru what you should do in case the light to read Srimad-Bhagavatam is insufficient.

You don’t ask again and again the same questions, like your problems of relationship with other people. I have answered to these innumerable time, I can’t keep repeating the same things over and over.

It is not proper to ask about problems that are competence of doctors or psychiatrist. I have given you instructions and you keep not doing what I say. I never adviced you to live far from a temple, I never adviced you to go to Guam. You did it by your own accord. So for any problem caused by your own choise you are the only one who should find a solution.


I keep telling you to chant the mantra, to read Bhagavatam but you complain that Srila Prabhupada’s purports are too long. I even sent you a mala and a bag, but you don’t chant. So what can I do?


Please make the proper use of having a spiritual master.



Your well-wisher
