Esta Noche

2 days ago by hps in Special Category A

Nacimos en la isla de Guam en el Océano Pacífico en 1948. Así que siempre hemos sido inclinados hacia el misticismo oriental.

Nos graduamos con el primer lugar en psicología de la Universidad de California, lo que nos llevó de regreso a Carl Jung después de que hicimos muchos esfuerzos en las escuelas de yoga.

Cristo y sus sacramentos nos acompañaron muy intensamente en todo esto.

Finalmente nos identificamos con el siglo XV santo y monje bengalí, Sri Krsna Caitanya, y todos aquellos que también aspiran a bañarse en Su tradición.

En esta tradición, la música sagrada y la comida sagrada son los medios y la meta. Canta y baila en la glorificación de Dios y, cuando te canses, toma refrigerios santificados y lee libros para complementar la purificación.



Tonight's Speech

2 days ago by hps in Special Category A

We were born on the island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean in 1948. So we have always been inclined Oriental mysticism.

We graduated with first place prize in psychology from the University of California so that took us back to Carl Jung after we made a lot of endeavor in the Yoga schools.

Christ and His sacraments aleays accompanied us very intensely in all of this.

Final we identify with the 15th Bengali saint and monk, Sri Krsna Caitanya, and all those who also aspire to bathe on His tradition

In this tradition sacred music and sacred food are the means and the goal. Sing and dance in glorification of God and when you are tried take sanctified refreshments and read books to supplement the purification.

Dear Guru Maharaj,

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

Dear Maharaj, this last weekend I got married to my wife Pooja in India and wanted to take your blessings for my married life.

HpS - AgtSP! You got married to your fiancé. Now she is blessed to be your wife!

I have entered grhastha-ashram, but realized that I was not well prepared for it. I have made so many mistakes already that I feel overwhelmed. I realized how important it was to plan and prepare for it with guidance from guru, sadhus like parents, Vaishnavas, scriptures, etc. Most importantly I feel I am stuck in a self-made prison made up of my own ego, or created by my own ego. I realized that happiness is not in showing off. I feel empty inside. I remember feeling much more satisfied and content when I had done kirtan. I really miss doing kirtan with devotees. I sometimes wish I had gotten a job in a city where there were more devotees, where I could attend kirtan programs, and build friendships with devotees. I feel very disconnected and the reason is my being so self-involved. I really need to work on my spiritual life, get more deeply connected with Lord Krishna, devotees, and devotional service. That is how I can get out of this lethargy. I want to improve on my mistakes and spend more time on improving myself. I need to cover up on lost rounds because of spending all my energy on getting the marriage done. I have a lot of improvement to do. I pray for your mercy and will start work on improving my spiritual life.

Kind of feeling lost,

Your no-good aspiring servant,

Aja Govinda dasa

HpS - Only a devotee feels lost. A fool thinks he knows everything but just adds more and more suffering to his life.

If you feel that way then what to speak of your dear wife. Her life hangs on yours. Sir together ready day and do Kirtan. It will harmonize everything. Then the next step?

See you on Houston?

Getting back on track...

Hare Krsna, AGTSP, PAMHO

Dear Gurudeva,

It has been a year since I moved out the ISKCON Chicago temple, yes, I did some "progress", can’t complain. I teach piano to over 25 students currently (if teaching fine arts can be considered brahminical), and I spend the rest of my time between two part time jobs, my college classes and looking for grad schools. However, things does not unfold always the way I plan, and that is frustrating. I neglected quite a bit my sadhana and overall spiritual health for the sake of moving as fast as possible in the race of getting some “social status” that is far from manifesting soon. Lately, after getting some life punches, I turned back to Krsna for shelter. It has been such a thrilling experience. Listening to kirtans and some classes are enough to make hair stand on end and make me remember sweeter times with devotees.

No preaching, just getting my things done, but after this reawakening, I am visiting Kishore Kishori more often, reading sastra alone on daily basis and with devotees on Saturdays and chanting japa the best I can, trying to get back on track. I am also writing you this letter after a while.

A couple of friends told me that they saw you in Tennessee. They said you were as usual, happily engaged in the transcendental loving service of Krsna. That brought happiness to my heart. Thanks for everything you do Gurudev.

Respectfully,

ys Etasa Krsna Das

HpS - My God. Hoping to great from you for years! Lost in the Beast. Most important thing is to keep good intelligence. ... I am going to die. Krsna is unhappy without my service. How can I escape the Witch and go to Him

Soon!
