[PADA: Not sure who these sannyasas are, but yep, they do look awful stiff and pretty lifeless compared to the rest of the crowd. Anyway, Lord Gaura is being glorified all over the place today, and that's a good thing regardless. Its good to see such enthusiasm for the Lord ... ys pd]
[PADA: This is an ISKCON Mayapura Kirtana. I have noticed that there does seem to be more emphasis on Srila Prabhupada there these days, and this kirtana fellow is actually pretty fired up compared to some of the sleepy time kirtanas witnessed on other ISKCON videos from other temples. A devotee told me there are a lot of Russian, Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia etc. there, and some of them recently complained that they are being charged too much for the "disciple classes."
Oh well! At least PADA is educating some of them on this blog, for free. It seems that its more or less being accepted gradually that the GBC's gurus are basically relative plane, conditioned souls, at best voted in figureheads, and thus the real acharya is Srila Prabhupada. Our idea is moving ahead -- albeit by default. ys pd]
