All glories to Sri Sri Radha-Krsna!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

Dear Guru Maharaja, please accept our obeisances at your feet, hope everything is well with your projects and your health. We are living in Vrindavana by the mercy of the Lord, he knows that if we don't have the oportunity of having him around us all day we may forget him. We go for programs every day... we try at least... but its hard to go in the mornings, we have to try harder. we had nice association, the safari tour of JPS was here, and with it many friends around the world, they allow us to go with them to some holy places in holy sanga. Doctor told us that the baby is too well developed and may come any minute now, that's scary. our mother is coming at the end of this month, she is preparing for the nice summer weather. yesterday we where trying to make some monkey friends at the MVT play ground, Hanuman monkeys, but the only lady monkey did't like our prasadam and jump on our arm and scratched it really good. now we heve war injuries!!! our children are so much advance than we are, we feel ashamed... but happy at the same time, Gopal is on the 4th canto (1 chap a day) and Vrinda reading Cc, the condense version of it... my reading... well... if Im lucky I can read the instructions on the back of the oat meal container. Our Husband has to be on us all day telling us  to chant our Japa, and our false ego gets hurt. Our service right now is try to survive the day and help the family to perform each one's duty. We have some projects that we are developing to do something for Srimati Radharani and the Land of Krsna, we kinda feel like a sakhi :)

We miss our friends in Latinamerica, we miss our preaching service there too. We think our gasoline is preaching and here in India is hard, is more for retired people :S

Our obeisances Gurudeva,

Trying to serve, Cakori Radha Devi dasi.

P.S: Guru Maharaja, you ask us for our address, here we have one, we are living at the VVT behind the MVT:

Braj Bihari's house, Vrindavan Vihar trust, behind MVT, Vrindavan, U.P, India.

We hope we can be able to accommodate you during your stay in Vrindavan, he have room for many :) Bhurijana prabhu stays upstairs.

Jaya Srila Prabhupada!!!!!

HpS -  Jaya!   AGTSP   pamho   We have to run to the house so answer short.  But we read all the letter.   Your donkey needs a few good wacks to keep him going!  (Haw Haw!)    You are so lucky to have a husband, baby, many children be in India.  I think you know this!    Just get up early and get your rounds done.   Krsna does not send ordinary people to be children of devotees.  Your baby is someone extraordinary but you have to take good care.  Be good example.  Get your rounds done early.  Every mantra helps your baby grow this way or that!

Hare Krishna!

Hare Krishna Maharaj,
Bhaktin Valentina reporting, 15 years old, 16 ronds and 4 principies, Santiago Chile
Have passed many time since the last letter, I entered to school and by now I am getting good marks and my parents are really happy<img alt="laugh" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/teeth_smile.gif" title="laugh" />

I am very worried about school so on the week I study and on Friday I go to the Friday Feast!
for now I don't have a service on the temple, but everytime I go I try to do everything that I can
Mother Astasakhi( prabhu Bhadra gopal's wife) Is calling me at 5 a.m. so I have time to chant ronds before going to school, we have been doing this for a week.
I know that I'm not your formal disciple but I really ask you for your proteccion and your blessings to be a good daughter, a good student and mainly a good devotee.
hope you are well,
Learning to serve,
your servant

HpS - Jaya!   All the letters today have such super news!   We are in our Office in Tennessee. It is about 4.40PM.  Rtadvaja Swami just called and he will pick us up in about 20-minutes in his car and take us to Nitai-gaurasundara and Mother Matsya's ashrama, home. He stays in Shyama Gopal's house. It is unoccupied a lot be SG has a resort in Alaska. I work in the office each day and then stay at the house at night.  Nice arrangement. Easier to see how I have to increase my devotion more.  Your situacion sounds like mine.  Everything basically O.K.   On the right path, not the wrong path, but now we have to accelerate the senses, do more intense service.    You have little altar?   Everyday little incense, a flower you steal from the neighbors (ho ho) and the Gurv-astakam bhajan and a little Kirtana?  Some reading each morning, after Mangala arati, before Breakfast, maybe six times a day.        You program seems super.    The followiing link should take you to a picture of your future!

Devotional Service!

8 years, 7 months ago by rodrigo hernandez piceros

All glories to Srila Prabhupada
Dear Maharaja, please accept my humble obeisances
Here is Bhakta Rodrigo Hernández from Chile. Thanks for all your letters. I received all.
This last month I have been doing a lot of devotional service! 21 days ago Prabhu Anada Syam and me organized an event with Nirantara Prabhu (Srila Prabhupada's disciple). This event was an important art cine in  Santiago. We had 90 people (70 devotees and 20 new people!). A introduction's Bhagavad Gita class, a lot of music and prasadam. Nirantar Prabhu was very happy!
Today (thursday)  we went to an event at the Diego Portales University Law School. There was live music and Stands with Srila Prabhupada's books, Cd's, questions and answers and prasadam. I took over 40 photos! A friend and me made ​​some posters about Prabhupada, Maha Mantra, Krishna and Bhagavad Gita. Very beautifull posters!
The devotees are happy with my service. I think it would be nice to have events in schools for children and adolescents.Also I think it would be nice to have events in places like parks or gyms in poor communes of Santiago (in these places youth and adults consuming a lot of alcohol and drugs. They need  krishna consciousness!)
IMPORTANT: Vanamali, Kriya Sakti, Jagat Guru, Priya Sakhi, Abhimanyu, me and others are working to prepare your itenarary in Chile. I hope very soon speak to Biblioteca Nacional' s culture department head. What conference would like to give you at this important site?
It would also be good to find a good place to present the movies "Light of the Bhagavata", "universal form" and others. Are you agree
Latest: A friend (Jayapataka' s aspirant) made a devotional Poetry's blog. I'ts beautifull! Everybody can send his devotional poems! The link is http://nitaigaurangablog.blogspot.com/
This is only a short report. We hope soon to send another letter with more news.
To your Lotus feet
Bhakta Rodrigo Hernandez Piceros

HpS:  TlgaSP!  pamho.  (Readers: Rodrigo and I and Priya-sakhi et al talked and communicated by Skype yesterday also).
The Blog looks nice.  The music is nice!!   Please send a letter to this Blog in Spanish with the link!       Again, you letter is so fine.   Such fine news. Prabhupada says that every salesman has his own technique. Festivals are a great way to distribute books. The idea is to just be very expert at whatever style of Sankirtana we are doing.   We can take ideas fromother but we have to develop our own way of Sankirtan. There is no other choice!

As we dicussed we will look to buy ticket to Santiago 1 July through 27th. First wee for National Library: "Poetry in the Bhagavad Gita", or another idea might be, "BG the Sublime End of All Poetic Expression".
Then Valparaiso - Hamlet and Arjuna.   Chapter 11 BG, Universal Form relates to the first LOB movie and Vanamali's fathers music composition. We need to communicate a lot.  Make a co-ordinated event so that everything can go in one poster, announcement and even the Embassy can participate!

Gaura Kripa!

Hare Krishna !!!
I hope that you are Happy under the mercy of our beloved Lord Krishna, i came back from Mayapur 2 weeks ago, I visited the lord Caytania birth place and I chanted my rounds there …was so sweet . im continue with mi service in the sandipani muni school as a art teacher, the kids are really happy, we are doing art with recycle material , actually im really worry about the pollution in Vraja and we are doing a recycling program with some other  volunteers from spain, this project I think will take 2 years,we want the support of the foreing devotes …. The cows are eating garbage,  fortunatelly  the contruction flyover in the Yamuna its supended because the walls colapased  8 months ago…..im happy for that, and GM I need to extend my visa to continue with all this plans, actually are not my plan ,I think just Krishna gave me this opportunity. I talked with Panca Gaura Prabhu and he need a letter from you to help me with my student visa, and Gm just I will wait for your answer. Thank you for your last letter was so energetic for me.
Please forgive my huge offenses
Radha carana dasi

HpS - Jaya!  TlgaSP!     pfanrh.   Very nice your news!   We were wondering what happened to you?     How is the basic program, Japa, Morning Program?   Are you advancing?
My experience is tha the Vrjavasis are many times more advanced than we are but they may be in the grip of different demons: The Tractor Demon, The Automobile Demon, The Plastic Bag Demon. When Krsna was here it was Aristasura, Kesi-asura. So, as little servants of Lord Caitanya we can help Krsna fight with these demons.  Main help is to get them to chant Maha-mantra and appreciate Gaura Nitai.  Then they can free themsleves!   Is very special you situacion.  Where do we send the letter?  What do we say?  We will try to write a separate letter to you about the details!

Querido maharaja,Todas las glorias a srila prabhupada!mis mas humilde y respetuosa reverencia: si le comento este mes lo voy hacer así Una parte en madrid y la otra en la granja,y los otros meses que quedan en brihuega,debido a que me cobran por alojamiento y prasadam yo estaría volviendo al trabajo y al templo de madrid en octubre KRISHNA mediante, también estaría volviendo los fines de semana y la ultima semana de cada mes a madrid para hacer sankirtan y algún servicio. Esa es mi situación espero estar haciendo lo correcto. su aspirante a sirviente bhakta bernie!

HpS - ASA>  Jaya!   TlgaSP   pfanrh.  Aparece es bueno si puede seguir los principios y la programa de Srila Prabhupada.  Claro, tenemos que trabajar en relacion con la administracion.  Siempre hay adjustamientos. SB es llena de diferentes grandes devotos con sus propio desafilas y como esta superando estas y volviendo a devotos puros, mejor amigos del todo el mundo. Siguendo los principios, trabajando en equipo con los devotos!
