Letter to: Gurudasa
29 September, 1968
My Dear Gurudasa,
Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 9/23/68, and thank you very much for it.
Regarding the Hindu community: Don't expect anything very wonderful from them, as we have got experience in Montreal—they have come in the foreign countries to earn money. As such, you cannot expect any cultural contribution. So you will tactfully deal with them, and whenever possible, vehemently protest against their foolish ideas. But you should try to support your statements on the strength of Bhagavatam and Bhagavad-gita. Best thing will be to avoid them as far as possible. I am concerned to preach this gospel amongst the Europeans and Americans, and I am not at all interested to preach amongst the Indians, because they have now become hodge-podge, due to so many years of subjugation by foreigners, and having lost their own culture.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
