Prabhupada:What meeting going on?

Tamal Krsna: Oh, very interesting meeting. Paramananda, Vamanadeva, Tripurari Maharaja, Asia-kesava Maharaja and myself discussing our Gita-Nagari community and talking about Varnasrama. Very, very… We were trying to reflect on all the teachings in your books and what we had read about Krsna’s life and Nanda Maharaja’s community.

Prabhupada: Hm?

Tamal Krsna: How the vaisya community lives, how the differeyvarnas and asramas function together, and what their responsibilities are to each other. We’re trying to set up our Gita-nagari community based upon the teachings you’ve given in your books. It is very enlivening and stimulating meeting. Dhrstadyumna Maharaja will be coming tomorrow with his brother. And he’s designed a very ideal plan for all the varnas and asramas to live together.

Prabhupada: Hm. Do it.

Tamal Krsna: Jaya. We’re going on on your teachings Srila Prabhupada. You’re always in the center of our lives.

Prabhupada: Make community.

Tamal Krsna: To show the world how to live ideally. Go back to Godhead. Make your own… Raise your own food. Make your own cloth. Make your own buildings and chant Hare Krishna. Worship Radha Krishna.

They’re working so hard. They don’t have nice home, they don’t have nice clothing, they don’t have nice food. And they have no love for Krishna.

We have to show how to do everything very nicely. We just have to understand what you’ve given us Prabhupada, your teachings.

Prabhupada: Thank you.

Tamal Krsna: We have nothing new to find out. We have no research to make. You’ve given us everything and we only have to carry out exactly how you’ve trained us up and taught us.

Prabhupada: Very nice.

  1. With all due respect and humility l have doubt. As per this conversation His Holiness Tamal Krishna Goswami Maharaj seems to be very much interested in developing Gita Nagari farm community as desired by Srila Prabhupada. But, did Tamal Krishna Goswami Maharaja ever got involved in developing Gita Nagari project after Srila Prabhupada’s demise?

    Strangely, GBC never seemed to have shown much interest in developing varnasrama based farm communities neither in the past nor in the present?

    I wonder why!
