I received this letter some days ago in response to the 3-part essay about mundane scholars as snakes.

Dear Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO. Yet another masterful unmasking of the demons.

My brother looks like a reasonable man, talks like a reasonable man, behaves like a reasonable man, encourages his children to be reasonable, is moral, conscientious, hard-working, modest, studious, thoughtful, considerate, a veritable pillar of the local community, BUT when it comes to the position of Krsna or God even, he is 100% not reasonable, not interested, not open-minded, not humble, not even intelligent.

I love the way Srila Bhaktisiddhanta dismisses such people in the forward to Brahma Samhita. (At least I think he is talking about such empirically-oriented metaphysical speculators)

People are so much apt to indulge in transitory speculations even when they are to educate themselves on a situation beyond their empiric area or experiencing jurisdiction. The esoteric aspect often knocks them to trace out immanence in their outward inspection of transitory and transformable things. This impulse moves them to fix the position of the immanent to an indeterminate impersonal entity, no clue of which could be discerned by moving earth and heaven through their organic senses.

It really doesnt take much for them to reveal their true colours. As soon as they are confronted with Krsna Katha, the cordiality evaporates fast.
