My dear Gopala Krishna dasa,
Why Nitai should be attending lectures outside of our temple? If he is not satisfied with the standard of lectures in our temple, then he should be permitted to give some lectures himself, but this habit of going outside to here others should be stopped immediately. I am writing one letter to Nitai and the copy of this is enclosed for your reference.

I hope that this meets you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami

My dear Nitai dasa,

Please accept my blessings. I have received reports that you have been developing the habit of going outside the temple to hear lectures by others outside like Nrsimhavallabha. Also, I have heard now that even some of the Indian devotees are doing likewise.

Strictly nobody should go outside to hear lectures by others. If you are not satisfied by the calibre of the classes at the Krishna Balarama Mandir, then you should give another class, but you cannot go outside for hearing others' lectures. Kindly stop this habit immediately.

I hope that this meets you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami

From general feedback we get, devotees are going out of the temple since devotees  make their lives impossible, uninviting, and devotees appear to lead double and false lives. At least this is the general feedback. So instead of going to the temple to hear the lectures they prefer to hear it through mayapur.tv and download which is not ideal if you understand the science of krsna consciousness but yet still effective and better than nothing.
