Some readers/friends already know that, inspired by the Planet Iskcon ethos of being “the uncensored voice of the ISKCON community online,” I would like to invite people to submit stuff to guest post here. I realize not everyone has time to maintain their own blog so why don’t we share this space?
Of course, I get to decide what to post and what not to post…thus making myself the Editor. But I promise I don’t need to agree with your ideas…just don’t be a meanie. Thoughtful, introspective crap is what I am interested in posting. And if you want to post anonymously, we can make up a fake name for you (readers, you will be notified it is a fake) which you can use if you post again in the future.
I think it would be great if current and “former” devotees have a voice. While this will probably not lead us directly to self-realization, I feel the ISKCON powers that be could benefit by actually gaining some understanding of who makes up, who left and who could potentially be a part of this society…which is supposed to be for the benefit of our self-realization. This may be a little too democratic of an idea for some, but so what. Many social ills were not obliterated in a day. Feel free to take that last statement however you want.
