Hare Krishna, Dear Maharaj!!
Please, accept my humble obeisance
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
I took the liberty of writing you to humbly request your guide in this process of spiritual advancement. Since only around 7 month ago I surrendered to the process. At that time, I had the happiness of meet you and the opportunity to talk with you during your last visit to Chile, which was a great inspiration for me.
Now, I’m taking the Bhakta course in order to learn more about Krishna and how to love and serve Him better. After your departure I have had the wonderful association of your disciples, especially of Priya Sakhi D.D who has taught me lots of things and whom I appreciate too much. We used to go Sankirtana almost every day and that’s how I began to cooperate with BIJAM, contributing my experience as secretary and teacher of English, translating the reports we send you each 15 days.
However, since I am working (at 2 places simultaneously) chanting all my rounds has been difficult, there are days I can’t chant 16 rounds. I try to chant on the bus, on the metro and now I’m adapting my life to do it. I have had some other problems, especially related to people who WERE important in my life, but now I’m sure I don’t want to continue chewing the chewed.
When I got the Kapi Dhvaja of 6th November, I felt sad because you asked us about our sadhana. That week I had a dream with you; I was really distressed in the dream, but in a very paternal gesture, you made me feel calm and happy. We also had a conversation, but I don’t remember the details… (Poor memory) was it a signal?
I tell you all this, because I know you are interested on everybody who is cooperating with the foundation keeps a good sadhana. I really like very much the service that I’m doing I feel that I’m able to contribute even with my two cents. That's why I beg you give me your blessing and instructions in order to improve my sadhana, my service and my spiritual life in general.
Thanks for all your mercy and patient, Maharaj! (sorry for the lenght of the letter<img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/a15.gif" style="width: 30px; height: 18px" title="" />)
Your most fallen servant, Nadia Villar B.
HpS - ISKCON Founder Acharya, Srila Prabhupada Ki Jai! Esteemed Teacher, Nadia Villar, paoho.
Thank you for your letter. We have patience (Upadesamrta Text Three), but enthusiasm is more important than patience. So ... be enthusiastic to accomplish the most essential service first, chanting 16-good rounds daily.
When you adjust to do that you will see that your family situation improves, your economy improves, your health improves, people respect your preaching, administration will be at the end of your finger etc.
Getting up early and getting your rounds done (well) is the best way to improve every other thing in the maximum rapid and profound way!
Of course, be a little patient to advance, but make rapid progress.
Avasya raksibe krsne (NOI), Krsna has given us this service as His priority request, so certainly he will give us all the facility (job, friends) necessary to accomplish it!
Can you post a photo of your selves someplace for us?
