My Dear Vijitatma:
Please accept my blessings. I have received your $100.00 daksina and I thank you very much for it.
Actually, everyone is trying to enjoy Laxmi without Narayan. Ultimately, the Mayavadi is envious of Krsna and wants to enjoy the original Laxmi, therefore they call each other "namo Narayan", they sit around and address each other as Narayan. This is the greatest offense, and they are actually unfortunate because they do not engage in devotional service. The Goddess of Fortune Laxmi is fickle towards the materialist, sometimes he is prince and sometimes he is pauper. But Laxmi cannot leave the side of Lord Narayan and wherever Lord Narayan is worshiped with care, good fortune and opulence is there. Therefore, the devotee is known as the most fortunate, and you American boys and girls are the most fortunate of all, now make everyone else fortunate by spreading this Krsna consciousness.
I hope this meets you in good health.
