Re: Propogating Hinduism

Dear Devotees,

A general question to all about propogating our religion - 

What if a non-brahmin sincerely wished to learn more about our 
traditions? Should he be denied? If we insist on madisaars and 
panchakachams, will it be for the brahmins only while non-brahmins 
are allowed to visit in other clothes? What do our Acharyas say in 
this regard? Thank you for clarifying my doubt.

Respectfully,
Shuba

TO WHICH I MUST RESPOND:

If a non-brahmin sincerely wished to learn more about our traditions we
should embrace him or her with open arms.  I do not think what we have is
for us alone, rather for the whole world.  This our Acharyas would agree
upon.

Let us look at Srila Prabhupada, he brought Krishna to the West for those
everywhere.  Why should the world not know of our ways?  LET US TEACH
THEM ALL!

Your Servant

S
