Dear Gurudeva, Im quite delayed in the follow of the [Bhakti-vaibhava] course, but still in progress with the lecture of SB. I have no important questions to do, therefor I dont write you, but Im following the program, Im in the middle of the 3th chapter, reading with all my effort, but kind delayed

Sorry if I cant write you so often, we have a lot of work in my workplace and sometimes I should to be almost all day in the place. I try to read all what I can do in weekends,
I beg your forgiveness Dear Gurudeva, Im not a qualified devotee, so if you think is better that i left the program, I'll try to follow reading your posts and the steps in PdP.

I hope you can forgive my faults and can remain under the shelter of yout lotus feets, Srila Prabhupada's feets.
your humble servant
Prananath Das

Here we are in our NIOS office in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  It is 5.51PM  We are writing before Abhiseka comes to pick us up on his way home from work and take us to Nitai-gaurasundar, Mother Matsya, Radha Natabara's ashrama.  We woke up in Tandavika, M. Mina, Musa and Kosa's, Govardhana Gaura Ashrama in Franklin, Tennessee.
Vijaya Prabhu took us toe Nashville to meet with Dr. Hiranya Gowda and an Assistant Director of the Frist museum where there is a world class exhibition sculpture and painting on Vishnu.  (Hinduism is a complex religion that originated in India but is now practiced around the world....  There are perhaps tens of thousands of gods and goddesses in Hinduism, Many (but not all) Hindus argue that there is a single divine power and that all the religion's deities are just different manifestations of that one power...)
Ooof.    Gronk!   Brack!    Grink!       We were exhuasted when we got back to Murfreesboro.
This morning we had nice WebEx meeting with Abhirama Prabhu of Visual Services and he is going to help with formatting Dr. Bandopadhyay's books.   We hope that we are following in the footsteps of Lord Caitanya in his Sankirtana with Sarva-bhauma Bhattacarya and Prakasananda Sarasvati, albiet, guaranteed a lot less pure and strong than so many (or we may argue ALL) the other devotees in ISKCON.
Gotta get in line behind Sananda Devi Dasi (see her letter?) and do what we can do, for God, Family and you.
O.K.   We got 19 more rounds to chant!  Woke up late a few days ago and got behind for our 25.day.   Alarm didn't wake us up.   Too much pnut butter and bananas late in the evening!
Hare Krsna.   Japa will say all we have to say to the hearts of all those with whom we play, Gopal!!!

MORE!

DEAR GURUDEVA,
PAMHO, AGTSP, AGTHAPS!
My only shelter are the words that come out of your mouth,
thanks Prabhupada, the devotees, the program, and the rounds.
Before guru-puja, quikly chant one more
I wish this moment would last all day long
if it wasn´t like this
I´ll be doing nasty things.
This is the best I can do,
sorry but,
I can´t even manage to go out on books.
I am breaking down to pieces
let me just dance for the deities.
This is ooh!! so much mercy,
your servant Sananda dd
I just have to learn how to take it.

HpS - <img alt="smiley" height="20" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/regular_smile.gif" title="smiley" width="20" />    AGTSP    pamho.    In the beginning we all have our good days and our bad days. <img alt="angel" height="20" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/angel_smile.gif" title="angel" width="20" />  <img alt="" height="18" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/36.gif" title="" width="18" />  More important than learning "how to take it" (dhairyat) is learning how to always do something to go up (Utsahan), then "taking it", tolerating will become an active part of it all.    Nehabikramo naso sti.  If you are "falling apart" it not regresion, it is revealing the disorder that exists below the current level of order.
Get up early, get your rounds done well, full (fool) morning and eveing program (Arati, Kirtana, SB/BG, Dancing.   <img alt="" height="18" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/a35.gif" title="" width="18" />) and Sankirtan as you can do it.   If you can't go out, then go in.  Read some more.   Help cook for Krsna, Karma-yoga, Go out on Hari nama, go out on the Internet.   Prabhupada manifes discouragement also, but then he would find his fight position and go back out again.
The magic will not be done by you

nor me

nor any living being

the magic will be done by Krsna

when we become pure devotees of Krsna.  (16 nice rounds, 4 principles strictly)

All glories to Srila Prabhupada 
All glories to Sri Sri Gaura Nitai 

P.A.M.H.O. 
Good Morning Estimated
[ASA - Esteemed] Guru Maharaja 

I hope, you health, as well as STI  [What is STI??  Sounds interesing!] Activities Are very good. 

Well, I can tell you my Activities That Are as follows: 

My sadhana today is to stand at least Monday-through Friday 6:00 a.m. 
My adoring murtis of radha krsna, Srila Prabhupada and Krishna Gopal. 
 
I'm singing my 16 rounds daily, although MOST of them to be ending in the afternoon, this was very Difficult year in college, Almost no time for anything, much work, activities, studies, is very Difficult to Become a year and effort. 
I am doing my service to the garlands on Tuesdays, change my service day on weekends for working part time hours in an ice cream shop. 
Cost me to stay long in the temple, for college and work. 
I Attend my service Tuesday at the garlands for Their lordships and party Friday Srila Prabhupada. 
I try as much as possible to get in touch with the Devotees by phone and over the Internet. 

Krsna book I'm reading in the night and Studying bhagavad gita in my spare time. 
with a book of questions and help in Understanding the Bhagavad Gita, Swami Maharaj Chandramukha (Brazil) Brought to Chile in Their last visit. (Very good and Practical, with Many Questions To Be Answered while Studying the Gita - His name is Gap108.) And Its study is Aimed at bhagavad gita Very useful to Perform sometime in the Bhakti Shastri. 
Currently thinking about Quitting work in ice cream shop. 
to Perform well in college, and Have more time to go to church and be with the devotees. 
well this Is What I can tell in this report, very happy Hoping your next visit to Chile:) 
I had a couple of questions in mind this time I Would like to share with you. 

What is the real Importance of attachment to the main guru (Prabhupada) and Diksa Guru? 
In my case as devotee, I Feel That, you is my guide (guru) to UNDERSTAND more krsna, advance in my spiritual life, and UNDERSTAND the scriptures in this life. 
But always and sense That I am more attached to Srila Prabhupada 
how I can get a Better view and balance on that? and Not Have This feeling of guilt? 
well, dear Guru Maharaja, I appreciate your time reading this report and please accept my humble obeisance again 
Hoping you Have a good and peaceful week. 

( Excuse my bad english)

Your aspiring servant

 Thank you for such nice news, which is possible because you have lived a nice year.  I can't make many detailed comments because I don't know details of your life, but this is a fact that we need good advice so that we can act properly in the details as much as possible.
Canakhya Pandita says, "Victory comes from good advice, and good advice comes from many counselors".    So cultivate the association of "Aunts" and "Uncles" in ISKCON, regular life.         Then regularly hearing the VEDAS, BG, the KRSNA book and keeping personal company with Krsna through His Holy Names you can make all the right decisions, like Arjuna, in your position in the fight with The Witch. <img alt="" height="18" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/46.gif" title="" width="18" />

I think your comprehension of Prabhupada, me, other devotees is fine. Krsna is the Supreme Personality. We are all energys and expansions of Him.   Chapter One of Caitanya caritamrt and NOI 4, 5. 6 give really good information.    Basically, I understand that Srila Prabhupada is the Founder of ISKCON.  ISKCON is the way to and is Goloka vrndavana.  GBC is the Ultimate Management Authority.  Brahmanas and Sanyasis are supposed to be the ultimate spiritual authority (SB 1.17.40-45).     Your relationship to Srila Prabhupad and me et al is individual, personal.    We should develop all the relationships.  It is very necessary that you have a very practical relationship with Srila Prabhupada as your guru, that you feel that he knows you and what you are doing and is watching after you.  That is all that I hope my association can give you and others.    Of course, that relation can be through the transparent via media of me and many other devotees as well as through his books, the paramatma et al.
I hope we see you all soon!
