The following are lecture notes briefly delineating its contents.
- All devotees are brahmanas by ashrama. Ashrama is more important. But by occupation they may not be.
- 64:00 Everybody due to their own personal insecurity doesn’t want to be controlled. And so therefore you have to have a temple committee. You have a temple president, you don’t need a committee, because no one on that committee is going to do anything anyway. They are there to tell the temple president what to do, so what are they trying to do? Make him into their shudra, so that he does what they want to get done that none of them can do. In other words, if someone on that committee could actually do it, why would they not be the president? It’s that simple.
Committee system works on and is meant for village level.
