HpS -  Jaya!   AGTSP   pamho.  We are working with VEDAS in Peru to organize things.  I think you wrote to Candramukhi devi dasi before. She is woking a lot ot get things organized!     But, I think Dhanvantari Swami is also moving to organize a Bhaktiviabhava program.   Whatever we do we can do in co-ordation.  Can you see what is happening with their effort?

Please accept my most humble and respectful obeisances
I want to be very good wife for Vrisabhanu Prabhu, that he is a great devotee, to make progress in our spiritual life, he has many qualities, has a noble heart and, he sees Krsna in all living entities.
All my spiritual brothers are very close, Vrisabhanu, Jiyada Nrisimha, Dharmaraja,Ambika who lives in La Paz and had a baby girl named Lakshmi, always try to help in every way Ambika, she is very good ... and all the devotees who are dear as  Mathuresh  Prabhu and Nayana Mataji ...
I am studying naturopathy at a center called "Inkari" the teacher is very good, and I think we will finish the studies later this year, Vrisa also studying with me. Also continuous with the art, that I really love, but in my astral chart, said I could not collect anything if I work only to art.
  We will publish a book for Sankirtan in Cochabamba and make people aware of Krsna ...<img alt="" src="" title="" />
Dear Gurudev, am I doing right? ... how I can help you? how I can satisfy your lotus feet?
how I can bring a smile to Srila Prabhupada? What I can do to help the Lord Caitanya?
Thanks for everything

Joining the family of Prabhupada

11 years, 6 months ago by narayani dd-bolivia

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada
Jaya Gurudev, my reverences for his lotus feet.
Dear Gurudev, his letter is very beautiful, I think is an important encouragement to continue studying Prabhupada's books, and pass the Bhakti Sastri, who give in 10days!!!!.... also wish to study the bhakti vaibhaba... jaya!! <img alt="" src="" title="" />, <img alt="" src="" title="" />!!!...

In Cochabamba we have a festival called <img alt="" src="" title="" />“joining the family of Prabhupada”<img alt="" src="" title="" />, will be very nice, is once a year and has become a tradition, devotees from all over Bolivia, La Paz Cochabamba, Oruro, Santa Cruz!!! is a wonderful feeling, as if you saw your  family together after a long time, of course, I miss you and  H. H. Jayapataka Swami too, to feel that really we all are.

 many devotees from peru come to festival, together with our dear brother Laksmana Prabhu,!!! Jaya!!!

I'm studying and learning very well care for the Deities, even in the festival we will give a workshop on worship of the deity, with its blessing all will be beautiful.

I was looking for much the second volume of Pancaratra Pradipa containing many details of how to bathe Their Lordships, among other things, but I can not find it, Where can I find?? Where I can learn all the details to be a good pujari??<img alt="" src="" title="" />

 Vrisabhanu Prabu is writing a very nice letter for you, these days are going to send it, he is a super devotee.<img alt="" src="" title="" />

Dear Gurudev, thank you very much for your kindness, and for having me patience.

HpS - AGTSP   pamho.  Such great news about your Festival.  We would like very much to be there, but as soon as we think about the travel to Bolivia our ears start to ache.   But we are not too far away.  You all, Ugra-nrsmha, Dharmaraja, Mathuresa and Mataji, everyone, are in Alto-Peru and we are in Bajo-Peru.
I don't have access to the Deity worship book, but I think that Laksmana Das can help because he is doing the service every day. So, many things are advancing very nicely.  I think Krsna will have some nice surprises to show you soon.   Are you studying in the university?

We will wait for Swami Vrsabhanu's letter.   A good wife is among the greatest jewels a man can possess.

BV verses

11 years, 6 months ago by tcsd

Dear GM,
What are the 25 Bhakti Vaibhava verses?
Does anyone post recordings of your classes on the net? I have searched and found little. Iskcondesiretree has a good place to post lectures of prominent vaisnavas, like your holiness.

HpS -  AGTSP!!!!    So nice to hear from you!   So, nice.   We have reached Radhadesa.
There are two links for our miserable classes at:

I checked them out and there are more recordings than you would want to hear in a lifetime!
The 25-verses are from a collection of 70+ verses that we selected to memorize for the Bhakti-vaibhava Diploma. Those are in the doccument at:
From those our proctor selected 25 as our examination. Which 25 is a secret unless you want to take the test. Of course, 99.9723% of all of my Bhakti-viabhava, Bhakti-sastri studies are from that year we spent together going through it all.  Shall we do it again?   Want to join Bhakti-vaibhava?   Of course, you would have to do your BG (Bhakti sastri thing the same time).
Just like School!     Haw!       Haw!     Haw!   (How are Baladeva and Nila??).

My dear Maharaja,

Dandavat pranams. Ram Ram.

HpS -  AGTSP   pamho.    Yes, but we should claim like Lord Caitanya to be servant of the servant of the servant of Krsna, no?    That is the necessity that I see of taking shelter of a Bona fide Acharya like Srila Prabhupada.

jivera svarupa hoya krsnera nitya dasa ---> To take shelter of Caitanya Mahaprabhu means to accept that one is eternal servant or part of Krishna which includes servant of servant ... of Krishna.

We are always servant of Krishna whether we accept it or not. That is everyone's eternal svarupa i.e. all living entities are eternal part (servant) of Krishna. Since Krishna is present in everyone, it also means that we are servant of servant ... of Krishna.
Claiming means to state something which is new. You were always servant of Krishna and you will always remain servant of Krishna. What extra this claim will achieve?
Your servant,

HpS - AGTSP!   We have arrived in Radhadesa, Belgium, and are starting to get settled down. We still have Jet-lag, but getting some nice work done.  Your letter is very nice for us. Not to long. I think the answer to your question, idea is at the link below and especially the following two verses. What do you think? 

Bhakti Vaibhava

11 years, 6 months ago by Govindananda dasa

Hare Krsna! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Jaya Maharaja HPS, please accept my humbles obeisances!
Some news about Bhakti-Vaibhava?
Your servant,
Govindananda dasa  

HpS - Jaya!   AGTSP   pamho.  The news is that by your sincere desire to study it, we are forced to do some work to organize things!   Thank you!    We have had meetings with the V.E.D.A.S. devotees and are organizing the curriculum now. Is there anyone else near you physically with whom you could keep company in your studies?  A study partner is SUPER important.   Tulsi Das was 30-minutes from the San Francisco Temple so he could come on Sunday and we visited him at his house twice a month, but we couldn't associate physically daily, but we talked by telephone almost daily and by that associatoin we went through the whole SB in one year together.
Is there anyone with whom you could form a group for association like that, meeting a few times a month at least???
