(HH Kadamba Kanana Swami, 2nd October 2012, Cronolla, Australia) Yoga Studio Program
To tell you the honest truth, the Hare Krishnas have problems – they do. The problems are that they have very high ideals and very exalted spiritual goals – noble, very noble, but they are human beings, believe it or not, in spite of their antennae’s!
So they encounter this exalted philosophy and it clashes with the human side. Therefore they have to come down to some warm practical platform, but because they don’t know their own culture, their own tradition – they only know the high spiritual goals, and they don’t know how to fill it in with their own Vedic culture – therefore it’s suddenly very hard!
