Comments on The Art of Management.  Part 9

So, my point is that the regulative principles must be followed by everyone.  Otherwise, their enthusiasm dwindles and they again think of sex and become restless, and so many problems are there. 

(Comment(s) to be written.)

There is some symptom of missing the point.  The point is to be engaged in doing something for Krishna, never mind what is that job, but being so engaged in doing something very much satisfying to the devotee that he remains always enthusiastic. He will automatically follow the regulative principles because they are part of his occupational duty—by applying them practically as his occupational duty, he realizes the happy result of regulative principles.

(Comment(s) to be written.)

So, the future of this Krishna Consciousness movement is very bright, so long the managers remain vigilant that 16 rounds are being chanted by everyone without fail, that they are all rising before four morning, attending mangal arati.

(Comment(s) to be written.)

Our leaders shall be careful not to kill the spirit of enthusiastic service, which is individual and spontaneous and voluntary. They should try always to generate some atmosphere of fresh challenge to the devotees, so that they will agree enthusiastically to rise and meet it.

(Comment(s) to be written.)

That is the art of management: to draw out spontaneous loving spirit of sacrificing some energy for Krishna. But where are so many expert managers?

(Comment(s) to be written.)

All of us should become expert managers and preachers. We should not be very much after comforts and become complacent or self-contented. There must be always some tapasyas, strictly observing the regulative principles—Krishna Consciousness movement must be always a challenge, a great achievement to be gained by voluntary desire to do it, and that will keep it healthy. So, you big managers now try to train up more and more some competent preachers and managers like yourselves.

(Comment(s) to be written.)

Forget this centralizing and bureaucracy.

This instruction, as you have seen by the evidence that has been presented, has been purposely ignored due to “personal ambition” by the GBC’s vested interest.  ISKCON is now a “par-excellence” example of a centralized bureaucracy.
