Hare Krsna dera Guru Maharaja, all glories to Srila Prabhupada!!!
So manly this year was complicated, but we could get throw it.
My Japa was not Good, but thanks to the continuos crying to Lord Narasimhadeva, it seems that we are making it.
We make our best to finish Japa before 6am, because at 6:30am we get completly cover and go back to bed. We are waking up between 2:50am and 3:30am. so every Mangala Aratika we are awake and thinking in Krsna and Guru and the little love that we have.
Service, is not steady becasue I don't have a permanet address yet, so we do what we can get... taking care of the Kids... is a nice service
we promiss to finish the Mahimamrta and we are working on that, good quality but it will take some more time. helping a little in sandipani muni school in Vrindavana, and trying to make senior devotees to understand that any condition can be change and that we must not lose faith, ever...
Principles, well in theory following 4 principles... we are working on the "in theory" part (which is one principle, and we ).have to make the question).
Reading, well we stop reading books and Im reading and studying the song by Bhaktivinoda Thakura, sometimes we feel that he gets us so much.
So every day we simulate that we are giving a lecture (to a non existing audience) yes, that's my way to feed my ego, feel intelligent and in control... its embarrassing, but more embarrassing is when I take the questions. so today I was "talking" about responsability, so I had an insight (speculation) I was thinking that what is the responsability of us and our authorities on us... so I thought that we are responsable of our life, because we do things and we dicide to fallow or not certain advices... the authorities are responsables for our life as long as we fallow their advices same with the spiritual master, when we dicide not to do what the spiritual master says or not fallow the advices we stop been under his "responsability" in a way... and I was thinking is it like that?
Hope you are well dear Guru Maharaja, although we are in different continents, we never feel you far... we have a nice colection of your lectures and sometimes we hear hours and hours of it.
Have a nice stay, and we hope the brahmacaris are helping you go to bed early and that they are not overcrowding your room!!!
next life i wish I could be a brahmacary traveling with my spiritual master and patraka :)
My obeisances over and over unto you and your wonderful inspiration,
Hoping one day to be a good disciple, Cakori Radha Dd.
we read in the Brihad bhagavatamrta today that
" But even the devotees of the personality of God-head who still have material desires can enjoy the pleasures they whish and then become fully purified and go to the Lord's abode" Coment ... paraphrasing... the devotee of the Lord has material desires, but even him is more elevated than an impersonalist free from this material desires.
that gave us some some hope! so many material desires, but we cry because we want Love Krsna, we don't love Krsna yet and do service and fallow the process because if we don't we suffer more and more and more... so if we can cry from the heart one day maybe Krsna will hear out lack of love and he can help us so we can become a devotee.
HpS- Jaya. AGTSP paho. Monkey and Piggy are amazed at your letter. It is very long but pretty nice.
You are on the right path (and off it (and on it (and...))))) So by trying and following 40% we come to a taste, knowledge, and then can follow 60%.
So try as much as you can to have FULL MORNING program in ISKCON (the good ISKCON).
That is really the basis of solving your material programs also. We are waiting for a letter from Radha carana Devi Dasi? We sent here a letter with an address where we can talk about the more individual topics that she wanted to discuss.
Send us more reports! They are very nice. You are like a roaming journalist for may people.
