AGTSP!!! PAMHO!!!

Hare Krishna gurudev!

Here we continue strugling in this material existence; following strictly 4 regulative principles, with some dificulties  to wake up always at brahma muhurta or chant good rounds, body,mind, emotions,psyche  bothering to much many times nd my mind very concernd in that, is a problem.

Continue workin part time in an ofice, givin yoga classes, doin some programs also with yogic people..studying.... nd also doin once a month a program called "encuentro educativo vaisnava",is for new people , for next meeting im prepearing a course called  "Alimentacion yogica"..we are also prepearing with adi yajna prabhu nd yasodamayi(my wife), a meditation course to give in the temple, a teorical course to be given some saturdays ..nd practical japa meditation meetings 2 or 3 days in the evenings during the week everytime,for new people.

Also i think in these weeks we are takin the tickets to india for the begining of october, we are like 6 devotees flying from buenos aires togheter,nd also ptattva nd nikasio from mardelplata, like 8... what is you calendar there in india? do you know good vedic astrologers or institutions to take a course in india?

im tryin to improve the  service every time,to find nice devotees to take asociation, to win to my fears to become a better instrument in gaurangas party....missin so much yr personal asociation...last week jayapataka swami was here it was really really nice nd refreshing...

hope you re super ok gurudev,

LIFE IN ISKCON IS GREAT

8 years, 8 months ago by bhaktanicasio

Dear Gurudeva,
Please accept my humble obeisances,
All glories to Srila Prabhupada,
All glories to you,

 Everything goes fine here in Mar del Plata, El Loft keeps growing, we are having at least 30 people every Sunday feast. Now 4 devotees are living there (Panca Tattva das,  Bhaktas Juanjo, Guillermo and Gonzalo), they are distributing 100 books a day.  

HpS - ASA -- What happened to Mahajana?   He no more lives there?  Bought the farm???  

 

Hanuman Prabhu authorized the opening of a BBT branch in Mar del Plata, that means no lack of books anymore, Panca Tattva and I are going to be in charge. I was feeling bad for being so much involved in administration issues until I read in TKG`s diary of  Srila Prabhupada`s final days that administration is a kind of Arcanam.

HpS - ASA -- Oink!   WHoop!

I`m trying also to push forward this interfaith program, I think is going to be held the 15 and 16 of September, hope we can count with you via webex.

HpS - ASA -- Drat!   Gronk!    BliMk!!!    We will just arrive in India on the ???  Look at the ASA Calendar! <img alt="" height="18" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/a04.gif" title="" width="18" />

Regarding LOB I would like to know if I can have like 20 copies to distribute, is such a nice book and i think my patients will appreciate it so much and it would be nice to have some copies for the program. If any devotee could take them to chile then Panca Tattva can bring them to Mar del Plata.

Regarding personal life we are very aware that this are the only four PRIORITIES in life

1. 16-nice rounds minimum.
2. 4-principles strictly.
3. Full morning and evening program.
4. Sankirtan according to your nature and ability.

HpS - ASA -- Can we have pizza in your house!  Even Lord Caitanya eats in the house of such a Vaisnava!!!

 I´m chanting 16 rounds although some days I have to finish them the next day due to work. I have consultation 3 times a week only so some days become very intense and we have to recover the next day.
With Alejandra my wife we are having excellent relation. We are doing a morning program. I bring her breakfast to bed and we chant one round together, so in this way she feels inspired to chant, then she is doing like 3 rounds a day. Manu and Benja are growing nice, Benja already knows parts of the maha mantra especially Hare Hare. Manu started studying theatre he loves it. I took him to one class of aikido but he didn’t want to return. I found a karate school where most of the people are vegetarians including sensei and they don’t participate in tournaments so maybe I will take manu there and me also start to practice.
I`m not worshiping the deities every day, it was too much for me alone taking care of the deities in one side and family in the other, I`m waiting for the day when the whole family gather in front of the altar to chant the holy names, so now i`m doing it the days I don’t have to go to work.
I was feeling so much presure to reach the standard for initiation that I was pushing myself to much. After having read your letter to Prahlada Nrsmha Das dated april 11ththat said  “Out of pride we should not take 1st, 2nd or 3rd etc initiation too soon, but just go on with Japa and Kirtana and honoring Prasadam and then it will all occur naturally.”  I felt relieved and realized that renunciation comes after knowledge. It was like I was more concerned of renunciation than acting for the pleasure of Lord Krishna. So now I feel to be more focused in becoming an affectionate husband and father and cooperate as a grihastha with our local center and its residents. Japa, SP`s books, your instructions and prasadam to be our weapons.
I feel so fortunate to have your association, everyday I think about you, lot of time of the day, your humor, your way of preaching, your qualities, Gurudeva you make me realize what Srila Prabhupada have brought to us. Thank you to inspire me engage in his service and to show me that life inside ISKCON is beautiful, really cool. We are having so much fun here in Mar del Plata.
I imagine you are having fun also there in Peru.
Saludos a todos los devotos de Por alli.

Hare Krishna!!

Aspiring to become your humble servant,

Bhakta Nicasio.

 

 Ps: Some photos attached, family. It seems that little Benja was a yogi in his previous life.

HpS - ASA -- Whatever Murti seva we do, it can be simple.  If we cook then cook for Krsna and offer it to Him.  Can be as simple as just puttng the plate in front of the altar and chant Hare Krsna mantra one time.       Then, read for Krsna, and rest of the family everyday.     That's enough.   Catch nice flowers and bring them home.   If altar is in the center of the house, the more it is decorated the more the house will also look, smell nice.  Nice lamps from time to time.  Ommm.

Madre Nadia Villar me mostró este interesante vídeo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SfTkdJGF70

ASA - Bizaarre!   Islam and Astanga yoga!!!    We take some technique and Upa-dharma, Pre-religion from this but they are missing a LOT from the first 2/3 that we saw of ultimate cosmology!!!

Un amigo, madre Nadia y yo estamos presentando um proyecto de trabajo al instituto británico de cultura y esta semana tendremos una reunión muy importante, por favor quisiéramos tener su bendición para que todo sea um éxito!

ASA - God bless you.  Hog bless (Sr. Varaha). 

 Si ganamos el proyecto yo podría financiar 50% de la revista Utsaha número 2! Please, Krishna help us! Querido Gurudeva muchas gracias por todo. Estamos muy contentos por su próxima visita. Recuerde que en Chile estamos en invierno y hace mucho, mucho frío (cold). Su humilde aspirante a sirviente, Bhakta Rodrigo Hernández

Your recent visit to Los Angeles

8 years, 8 months ago by BhaktaAdrian

Dear Hanumatpresaka Swami,

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

Hare Krishna Prabhu Hanumatpresaka Swami! My name is Bhakta Adrian. I'm living in the Asrama here in New Dvaraka, Los Angeles, California. I had the great treat of chanting some japa with you in the temple room and listen to you give a fantastic lesson. I was very eager to talk to you, and I was under the impression that you were going to be around the temple for a couple hours after the class had ended. I was sincerely dissapointed to see you and Omkara Das drive away before I had the chance to get your association. I'm not sure if this will spark any memory, but I was the young Bhakta in yellow who sat right in front while you gave your wonderful lesson.

More so than anything else, I'm very eager for your association. I am wondering when you'll be back to Los Angeles, and for how long you will be here? If my memory serves me right, I heard you mention you'd only be here for a few hours just the same as your last visit. If that is the case, I'm wondering if there is any place near Los Angeles you might be staying for more than a few hours? Maybe I would be able to arrange to arrive at another temple you are staying at for a few days to properly engage in conversation. Please let me know! I am sure you are very busy, and must have many people to assiociate with. If you would be so kind to write back to a very humble Bhakta, I would be very appreciative.

Your aspiring servant,

Bhakta Adrian
