Breaking Down Prejudice
By Bhakta Omer

Dear CHAKRA,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I found Amara dasa’s website "Tritiya-prakriti: People of the Third Sex" through CHAKRA. The very idea that CHAKRA published Amara’s article was encouraging.

People mostly relate God and religion with fanaticism and intolerance. I feel this is due to their contact with western fundamentalism and its twisted conception of religion.

Intolerance toward the third sex is only one aspect of this. Srila Prabhupada also explained how people don't follow the regulations of their own religions ("thou shall not kill") because they kill other living entities for eating.

The contradictions of so-called "religious" people in western history equated the words "religion" and "God" to mean a crusade, witch burning, intolerance toward homosexuality, racism and even genocide.

I believe it was for these reasons that His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada insisted on the name "International Society for Krishna Consciousness" and not merely "International Society for God Consciousness."

Amara’s work is a very important step in bringing people back to Godhead. Such papers can give devotees the tools to face Society’s prejudice and to prove there is another way, a positive way, of serving God.

I would like to thank him for giving these tools to me and to many others, whose importance for our preaching of Krishna consciousness you may not yet understand yourself.

Haribol!
