Hare Krishna Maharaja,
Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada!
Up late in the kitchen again last night. Still managed to make it up for Mongala Aratic. GBC Harivilasa wants the devotees to chant 8 rounds before Mongala Aratic starts. I haven't made it up to that standard yet, but managed to chant 5. Finished my 16 rounds by 6am. Haven't chanted any extra rounds before 10 today.
Devotees are really starting to get angry with the method of management here, which has sparked a lot of mundane conversations. Makes it hard to just focus on HEARING and CHANTING. Trying to keep to myself when these things arise.
Who would I pay the $600 to? How long would that enable me to travel with you for? That seems like a really small amount of money.
Your humble servant,
ASA - Drat! AGTSP Paoho. We wrote a nnice response to you above letter and then it crashed! Save copies! Your Japa sounds super. Be sure that you keep the quality and not just the quantity: "Only a wicked person tries to finish his rounds quickly!". It is also fine to get all your 16-rounds done from after mangala arati until before Greeting the Deitys. There are different programs. I like Hari-vilasa Prabhu's suggestion. I think that he is getting stronger in his Brahminical character himself. Does he keep the 8 before Mangala arati Standard himself?
When would you want to travel with us, ASA???
How long is your CONTRACT with Hawaii Temple. You seem to be doing a super job.
Arjuna was a politician, but he fought only after 14 years of exile, and hearing the BG DIRECRTLY from Krsna. O.K. Runnning to the Temple. Our today news is in the letter to Candra Mukhih Devi Dasi, NIMSAR Appendix.
