*IMPORTANT: PLEASE EVERYONE READ THIS* (for those who are members of our Whatsapp group)
This is a thematic WhatsApp group. The theme is stated in the title: it is the group where I preach.
I’ll give you two examples of how it should work.
If a devotee gives a Srimad-Bhagavatam class, there is one who speaks and the others who listen. Then everyone is welcomed to ask questions, eventually appreciate if they liked the class, but it is not a correct etiquette to intervene during the class.
If a devotee is a member of a group called “Srimad-Bhagavatam”, you are not expected to publish verses from the Sri Isopanisad, and not because there is anything wrong with the Sri Isopanisad but because it’s a group dedicated to the Srimad-Bhagavatam.
If you want to talk about Sri Isopanisad, you go to a group of Sri Isopanisad.
The result of intervening in a class (even if the interventions are perfectly Krishna conscious), or publishing anything (similarly Krishna conscious) in a thematic group is that the theme and the group evaporate, destroy themselves, and all becomes like a great minestrone, a undifferentiated soup, where there is everything and at the same time nothing.
We don’t want this.
Some devotees want to hear my explanations and need a place to find them without having to search for them.
There are many generic groups where everyone says everything. I don’t want my group to become like this.
Here it is very appropriate to put questions, or messages of appreciation to questions or answers, and also some news about our preaching or coincidentally other news.
Other things please put them in other groups.
I beg the devotees to help us keep this group as to its identity.
