Japa Mala made of Tulasi wood considered in the Vaishnava tradition as sacred should rather not be exposed to the cold wind, but kept in a bag. Like a relic. It would be good not to promote the "loose American style" of waving relics, right?

I have seen the mansion. Got pictures.
Anyway, I don't see "any trace of smile of inner happiness" against the narrative in the video. I see an old tired man whose attraction to the sunset is associated rather with autumn life and death.

And this is another interesting element. In fact, Balakhilya das has been coming to Poland probably since 1999 or 2000. You write that
he is now building his own guru career. In practice, he has been doing it for 19, 20 years.
But this is very significant - because on posters advertising his lectures he is described as "known in th world". Apparently it's not "known in the world" since you don't know.

Balakhilya das tries to speak slowly and clearly. Nevertheless, he omits "das" in his spiritual name. Doesn't want to be a servant anymore? Moments later, he recommends a Guru. Want to be a broker? A level in the hierarchy between the student and the transparent medium? Medium which should be Self-effulgent and not created?

Very good point. Here you can read, that a room for 1,500 seats for Balakhilya das listeners was rented. And you can say that hundreds come. Why are they not staying?

I would like to ask Balakhilya das some questions:
1) How big part of happines was money from Mr. Patrick B.
2) Why weren't we told about young Siddha B. Prince?
