Chaitanya Lila Holt
[PADA: There is a Chaitanya Holt listed on the "gurukulis" web site, perhaps this is the same person?
Yet I am not sure what happened here? They say he was stealing things? Was he doing nothing wrong and this was big mistake? Why would the villagers mistake him for a thief? He had an African American body, is this part of the problem?
Was he part of a group of devotees, or was he on his own over there? Whose program is he part of, or is he part of anyone's? Why are so many ex-kulis running around with no program to support them?
Anyway, this is apparently another example of "India floating" gone bad. Srila Prabhupada did not want his followers and disciples to simply wander around India without very specific services there.
He said -- he wanted us to visit India only temporary and spend our main time building things up in the WEST. Anyway! Lets hope Krishna gives him some extra mercy and facility now, because it does not seem he got much facility in this lifetime!
Unfortunately, the GBC in the West is not making much facility for them. Apparently, he was formerly part of the Washington DC Potomac temple program. If anyone has any info on what really happened here, send me the real scoop at: firstname.lastname@example.org. ys pd]
UPDATE: Circulated by a relative of Chaitanya Lila ...
