Dear Srimati Lilavati Devi dasi,
Please accept my humble obeisances.
I’m both surprised and very unfit to receive your donation and will have to consult with Uddharan prabhu on how to use this sum of money, especially as our preaching front is non existent! — Srimati Lilavati Devi, email dated 2/20/18
These are also my feelings and thoughts whenever I receive a donation for the service of our Divine Masters. But it is not fully correct to think in this way. If, during Srila Gurudeva’s lifetime, I was passing through England and gave you fifty dollars and asked you to please give it to Srila Gurudeva when he next visits London, I doubt you would feel such shyness. It is not so much money. So, even if you lost it before you were able to deliver it to His Divine Grace,
