One of my friends has forwarded to me, alongwith his comments, a mail received by him. I am forwarding the same to you.
This story reminds me of a song by Babuji… Krisha’s kaifiyat on the subject of his marriage to 16,108 Gopis… Mana Manav va Parameshwar. I am attaching the song. And your story tit for tat is good. I am forwarding it to my friends.
There was a case of nuns in a court in Warsaw, Poland against ISKCON.
Noting that ISKCON was spreading it’s activities and gaining followers in Poland, a nun filed a case before a Judicial Magistrate praying that ISKCON should be banned because its followers were glorifying a Character called Krishna ‘Who was loose in morals, having married 16,000 Gopikas’.
When the case came up for hearing the ISKCON defendant requested the Judge to ask the nun to repeat the oath she had taken when she was ordained as a nun. The Judge asked the nun to recite the oath loudly. She would not.
ISKCON man asked the Judge whether he could read it out for the nun.
The Judge said go ahead. The pledge was in effect that ‘she (the nun) is married to Jesus Christ’.
ISKCON man said, “Your Lordship! Lord Krishna is alleged to have ‘married’ 16,000 women. There are more than a million nuns who assert that they are married to Jesus Christ. Between the two, Krishna and the nuns, who are loose characters?”
The Judge dismissed the case and allowed ISKCON to go its way.
