Dear Krishna Prasada,
	Thank you for your letter. Here are my comments.

>I would like to know who are meant by "those who are comin down to the
>material world"?  whoever they may be, they are definitely not coming due

>due to Sri Krishna's orders to be carried out in this world.

	Isn't this begging the question. You are simply affirming the 
very point under debate.
	I am somewhat bewildered by the long quote you gave from 
Baladeva, since this point repeatedly states the same thing I have 
stated: that the Lord creates the world with perfect regard to karma.

	Neither Vaishnavs, nor academic scholars, believe this. Lord 
Caitanya took sannyas from a Mayavad sampradaya, but He is hardly a 
Mayavad.


With best wishes,
Hridayananda das Goswami
