Thank you, Rajan. Would you like to add some substantial
response to what I posted? I would like you to tell us
what you feel you've learned about Gaudiya Vaisnavism in
three years, and specifically define "ISKCON blather" and
explain whatever objection if any you have to it. But
perhaps you would prefer keep your mouth full of prasada
instead. That may very well be the best use of your tongue.
You might want to consider that that is why your friends
give it to you.
