Apology for Article
By Vipramukhya Swami

CHAKRA (Germany) - March 23, 2001: Recently CHAKRA published an erroneous article authored by me announcing that Hari Sauri Prabhu, in resigning as the Minister of Jyotish, was placing Syamasundara Prabhu, a senior devotee and astrologer, as the interim Minister until reconfirmation at next year's Mayapur meetings.

The article should not have been written. Hari Sauri's message was meant to be a private message addressing the members of the GBC Body, not a public message, and therefore I violated confidence when I wrote the story. The mistake came about when I misunderstood the receivers of the message to include one or more public conferences on PAMHO.NET. I would never have written the article had I realized the receivers did not include a public conference.

I have explained this situation already to Hari Sauri Prabhu who has kindly accepted my apology, but since my article was published publicly, both on CHAKRA and on the GBC Discussions conference on PAMHO.NET, I have offered to write a public apology and this explanation.

I believe it is appropriate at this point to mention that Hari Sauri's message was a suggestion only. When he made it, he wasn't aware that Ministers can only be appointed by vote of the GBC Body. Consequently, Syamasundara Prabhu won't be acting as the interim minister of Jyotish. Therefore my entire article, in addition to being an accidental breach of confidentiality, was inaccurate.

I regret the mistake and apologize to Hari Sauri and anyone else who may have been adversely affected by the article.
