    Hare Krishna Prabhuji,
    Please accept my respectful humble obeisances

    Thank you prabhuji for beautifully presenting the brilliant contrast among the demeanor of the subordinate(s) with respect to their superior from the scriptures like Mahabharat and Ramayan. What I really aspire to apply in my life is the remarkable spectacular statement which you made while defining UNITY from a broader perspective as an essential quality having its foundation grounded not over the mood of tolerance or even acceptance but the profound feeling of reverence toward superiors. Kindly pray that one fine day I am get the strength to uphold this finer aspect of consciousness which surpasses the volatile misconception/ misunderstanding and will allow me never to be bereft of satsanga.

    longing to have your personal audience,
