RE: Question from Murali Krishna

Thanks for Sri Srikant Sadagopan's email reminding everyone of "protocol"
and even network protocol as to what to put on the network.  I personally
feel that we should cultivate "respect" for acharyas.  If anyone has some
issues to take up, I am sure there are other ways - such as personal
contacts to find the truth regarding controversial issues.  I personally
have found it difficult to swallow some things but it is best taken care of
when we do "pari prashnena sevaya"  ( by questioning the right people in the
right format and service the masters). I have found myself at fault and
regretted much later after causing a flood of controversies.  Email should
not be used as a " rumur information dump".

One other thing to avoid is to flood email with news of " someone heard that
so and so did so and so".  Unless the person is involved deeply and knows
every aspect of the issue that is the point of controversy, one will not be
able to evaluate them properly.  It is better to avoid half cooked ideas and
issues to be sent to this network.

I think since email is easy and people don't have to ask anyone's permission
to express views freely, this network is used for grievances etc.

I personally feel that value of email should be more focused on " scriptures
and explanations", news of events pertaining to promote bhakti to Lord
srimmanarayana and such issues.

Adiyen Krishna
