- But wasn't that school (the gurukula school in Texas) moved to India?
- But what if they change later on in their life (you believe in free choice. So suppose the children grow up and they want to go to college. But you have not sent them to a public school. Therefore they are not eligible for going to college)?
- Even the basic of this (you were saying that the children should learn these three, geography and these things, and I wanted to know if they should also learn what they call biology, that is how the body is working, what are the bones and blood)?
- Even with this education, they (the children in Gurukula) still might not be intelligent, what you consider intelligent people. How, you know... Is it more likely that they will be what you would term intelligent, having been educated in this system?

- I wanted to know also what should we do once they are sixteen, because you said they should be trained in a Gurukula until they are sixteen? So once they are sixteen...
- I was taking the children in the land here and teaching them how to recognize the different plants. Is that useful, or should I not do that? here we have so many different plants growing, some medical plants, some that can be eaten. Is there any use?

- Srila Prabhupada, there was one question. They would like to know why is it that the children are separated from their parents and sent to Gurukula?
- The school in Vrndavana, is this, I assume this is to be out there in the yard that they were clearing. When do you anticipate that will be built?

- To read your books (our progress is how the student is becoming Krsna conscious. That is our point. And because he has to read nicely, he has to speak nicely, he must be literate, not illiterate)?
- What about any history? World history or American history or American literature or English literature?

- What about taking the primers and changing the names of the people to people like Satyabhama and give them spiritual names. Would that be nice?
- What are your instructions ... to the teachers as to how they treat parents? I have heard several parents sometimes complain that they don't get enough news about their children from the teachers. Should teacher let the parents know about the children?

- What should the boys be taught from ten to sixteen?
- What will be the difference between the Vrndavana gurukula and this gurukula?

- Who is teaching there (at Navadvipa)?
- Will they (the children in your school in Texas) be virtually living outside...?
- Will you be opening certain schools in India on gurukula pattern?
