    DEAR DHIRA NITAI DAS,

    PLEASE ACCEPT MY OBEISANCES. I AM SO PLEASED THAT YOU FIND MY HUMBLE OFFERINGS HELPFUL.

    AS FOR THE PAPER ON CATHOLIC ASCETICISM, IT WAS ORIGINALLY ABOUT 95 PAGES (NOT AVAILABLE ON LINE), BUT IT WAS SEVERELY EDITED DOWN FOR PUBLICATION AS ONE CHAPTER IN AN IMPORTANT CATHOLIC MARYKNOLL TEXT ON CATHOLIC APPROACHES TO ECOLOGY. THE TEXT WAS A PROJECT OF THE CATHOLIC FOREIGN MISSIONARY SOCIETY OF AMERICA PUBLISHING HOUSE AND THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE DEPARTMENT THAT DEALS WITH ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES.

    YOU CAN FIND THE SCANNED CHAPTER ON-LINE AT http://www.hknet.org.nz/BhaktiAnandaGoswami-EMBRACINGEARTH.html
    (MY MAIN PAGE THERE IS http://www.hknet.org.nz/BhaktiAnandaGoswami.html )

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU GET THE BOOK, AS A RESOURCE FOR YOUR WORK WITH CATHOLICS. THE OTHER AUTHORS IN IT ARE SOME OF THE MOST VENERATED CATHOLIC INTELLECTUAL AND SPIRITUAL LEADERS IN AMERICA TODAY. SO, I AM IN GOOD COMPANY ! IN MY CHAPTER I ASSERT THAT THE BIBLICAL DEITY IS HARI-VASU AND THAT THE ASCETIC TRADITIONS OF APOSTOLIC CATHOLICISM ARE RELATED TO THOSE OF THE HELIOPOLITAN MONOTHEISTS AND THE BHAKTI TRADITIONS OF THE EAST. I CONCLUDE MY ESSAY ON CATHOLIC ASCETICISM BY CITING SRILA PRABHUPADA’S GITA.

    THE TEXT IS LISTED FIRST, AT THE TOP OF THE MINNESOTTA COUNCIL OF CHURCHES ECOJUSTICE READING LIST AT

    YES, YOU CAN TRANSLATE MY CHAPTER, AS I STILL OWN THE COPYRIGHT TO MY CHAPTER. PLEASE
    BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO CHANGE MY MEANINGS. IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF ANY MEANINGS, WRITE TO ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU ENGLISH SYNONYMS FOR MY WORDS, SO THAT YOU CAN SELECT THE BEST CROATIAN WORD AVAILABLE.

    THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR EFFORTS IN THIS MISSION !

    PAX AND PREMA !

    BHAKTI ANANDA
