Algunas Reflexiones Institucionales.

ASA - Respondaremos en la Ingles abajo.

Hare Krsna Gurudeva, este es un apéndice de nuestro reporte.

A estas alturas la nueva Junta Legal debe estar instalándose, asumiendo funciones y solicitando documentos y poderes de la anterior Junta, esperamos que no demoren mucho en esa gestión. Sin embargo humildemente pensamos que es necesario sentarse a conversar no solo con los líderes administrativos sino también con otros devotos activos y representativos en el Yatra, acerca de la funcionalidad de la Junta Legal y la Junta Nacional, porque existe cierta confusión incluso en los mismos miembros de ambas Juntas acerca de lo que corresponde y no a ambas, y esto ha generado en el pasado la asunción y evasión de responsabilidades que no les correspondían.

Además pensamos que se debe aclarar la naturaleza de la Junta Legal, si será esta solo para una relación técnica o no de Iskcon con el Estado Peruano. Creemos como muy necesario que ambas Juntas tomen el apoyo del consejo de otros devotos representativos en el Yatra para definir esa figura. Nosotros somos de la opinión de fusionar ambas Juntas, y tener una relación más trasparente con el Estado Peruano, abriendo el padrón de miembros a aquellos que representan fielmente a Iskcon y dándole la posibilidad a la comunidad a que elijan a futuro sus representantes, protegiendo las propiedades y negocios con un comité de devotos mayores que sirvan como trustes (ingles) o propietarios..

Otro gran reto que tiene esta nueva junta legal es el mejoramiento de los estatutos, pero nuevamente eso tendrá validez en nuestra Institución en la interna, solo cuando definamos que naturaleza cumple la Junta Legal. En todo caso urge en el Yatra unos estatutos o normas institucionales locales, basadas en la ley de Iskcon, desde lo básico y también detalles que guíen el accionar de los líderes y miembros, que establezca perfiles de servicio y que defina responsabilidades e incluso sanciones en caso de que algún miembro rompa las normas. Seria más sencilla la figura con una sola Junta con sus propios estatutos.

Ya es tiempo de poner en acción el banco de datos (censo) para saber con quienes se puede trabajar, en que porcentajes, habilidades, talentos, profesiones, tiempo, etc. De los devotos y estructurar mejor nuestra organización.

“Cuando el gato no está, los ratones hacen fiesta” Perú tiene una idiosincrasia muy particular, pasa a todo nivel, es un tema que no se discute, ya que está en las noticias todos los días. Y también sucede en nuestra institución. Por eso seguimos sugiriendo que el Supervisor de GBC sea un devoto que viva en Perú, o que tenga su propio representante viviendo en Perú. Es una figura que está facultada incluso por la ley de Iskcon, y se menciona que podrían ser más de un representante incluso.

Tenemos la esperanza de que algún día los miembros de la institución nos elevemos gradualmente a madhyama adhikaris especialmente los líderes del Yatra, así la envidia propia del Kanistha adhikari manifestada como temor, desconfianza, sectarismo, grupos cerrados, corrupción y otros cedan a la comunicación, organización, amor y confianza propia de los madhyamas maduros. Quizás ahora pueda ser un sueño pero debemos apuntar a eso.

            Perdone lo extenso de la nota. Para servirle, en el servicio a Srila Prabhupada.

Some Institutional Reflections.

Hare Krsna Gurudeva, this is an appendix to our report.

At this point the new Legal Board must be settling down, assuming functions and requesting documents and powers from the previous Board, we hope that they will not take long in that management. However, we humbly think that it is necessary to sit down to talk not only with the administrative leaders but also with other active and representative devotees in the Yatra, about the functionality of the Legal Board and the National Board, because there is some confusion even in the same members of both Boards about what corresponds and not to both,

ASA - Yes, and it seems that they themselves have arrived at the same conclusion, so we hear that Karuna-krsna Das will become the President of the Junta National so that power of the two will not be mixed.

. . . and this has generated in the past the assumption and evasion of responsibilities that did not correspond to them.

We also think that the nature of the Legal Board should be clarified, whether it will be only for a technical relationship or not of Iskcon with the Peruvian State. We believe it is very necessary that both Boards take the support of the council of other representative devotees in the Yatra to define that figure. We are of the opinion of merging both Boards, and having a more transparent relationship with the Peruvian State, opening the list of members to those who faithfully represent Iskcon and giving the community the possibility to choose their representatives in the future, protecting the property and business with a committee of senior devotees who serve as trusts (English) or owners.

ASA - This letter is a good place to start. We will try to include you in all the work we do on these things. We agree with your ideas completely. Now we have to prioritize them and implement those, no?

Another great challenge that this new legal board has is the improvement of the statutes, but again that will be valid in our Institution in the inmate, only when we define what nature the Legal Board meets. In any case, the Yatra urges local statutes or institutional norms, based on Iskcon's law, from the basics and also details that guide the actions of leaders and members, that establish service profiles and that define responsibilities and even sanctions in If any member breaks the rules. The figure with a single Board with its own bylaws would be simpler.

ASA - One problem, that may arise is that the property might need to legally be in the hands of one Association, so that the day to day actions of the Sankirtan did not threaten loss of the property eg. If someone has damage in Govinda's Natural Products and wants to make economic claim for damages, that is limited to Govinda's because the Legal Association is only renting the property and has done reasonable inspection of its use.

It is time to put the database (census) into action to know who you can work with, in what percentages, skills, talents, professions, time, etc. Devotees and better structure our organization.

"When the cat is not there, the mice are partying" Peru has a very particular idiosyncrasy, it happens at all levels, it is a topic that is not discussed, since it is in the news every day. And it also happens in our institution. That is why we continue to suggest that the GBC Supervisor be a devotee who lives in Peru, or has his own representative living in Peru. It is a figure that is empowered even by Iskcon's law, and it is mentioned that they could be more than one representative even.

ASA - This should be the President, Members of the National Council, no? These include Temple Presidents.

We hope that someday the members of the institution will gradually rise to madhyama adhikaris especially the leaders of the Yatra, thus the envy of Kanistha adhikari manifested as fear, distrust, sectarianism, closed groups, corruption and others yield to communication, organization, love and confidence of mature madhyamas. Maybe now it can be a dream but we must point to that.

       Sorry for the length of the note. To serve you, in the service of Srila Prabhupada.

ASA - We have arrived at almost the same conclusions independently. Maybe others have done the same. This Blog Post is good place to start. Print it. Circulate it. Discuss it. Write more.
