Devotee Etiquette in Spiritual Discussions Posted February 25, 2009 · Report reply Devotee Etiquette BY: SWARUP DAS Feb 24, CORRALITOS, CALIFORNIA (SUN) — I find it ironic, if not comical, the way “devotees” often communicate with each other - especially when posting on Internet forums such as this. I’ll give an example: My Dear XXXXX Prabhu, Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga. You are an ignorant fool, an offensive demon, a liar and a cheater, and I am convinced that it is your karma to suffer in hell forever and ever. I hope this finds you well. Your humble servant, XXXXXX Das So is this format, which I observe over and over, day after day, the Vedic equivalent of politically correct? http://www.harekrsna.com/sun/editorials/02-09/editorials4097.htm ---------------------- Our discussions here have become mostly just quarrels and I find myself spending a lot of time on such unproductive exchanges, probably even provoking many of them. I apologize for that. Perhaps it is time to move on for me. Dandavat pranams to you all.
