All glories to Sri Sri Gaura Nitai
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!
