"Luz of Bhagavata" publicación en Chile

11 years, 8 months ago by rodrigo hernandez piceros

 All glories to Srila Prabhupada
Dear Maharaja, please accept my most respectful obeisances

Thank you very much for your last letter (it was published in your blog). Each letter you sent me is full of transcendental knowledge.
I’m fine in general, but struggling (fight)  every day with my defects (anarthas)!
This letter is  to ask you about the possibility of publishing in Chile "Light of the Bhagavata”. You asked me to do the steps, remember? I talked to the editorial’s owner of “Editorial Cuarto Propio” and she asked me about copyright permissions.

Marisol Vera asked me questions like:

*Which would be the conditions of the publication?

*The complete financing of the book would make by Editorial Cuarto Propio?

*Whichever units would have this Chilean edition? The books in Chile are generally of 1000 units.

*Who has the rights or legal permissions of the LIGHT OF THE BHAGAVATA? (Who has the right of texts, the photography and the permission of the translators?)

*How it would be the distribution of the book? In Chile or also abroad?

* Perhaps the Chilean edition of the "Light of the Bhagavata" could be  with softcover to lower cost.

I remember you sent a letter to Hanuman Das Prabhu (Spain) about it, but we never hear back from the devotee.

Probably next week I will go to the editorial room and I will have a new interview with the owner. Chile IKSCON’s  president wants to talk to her. Marisol Vera is very nice!

In a next letter I hope to send you a report about Utsaha magazine. Prabhu Jagat Guru, Mother Kriya Sakti  and me are coordinating some important things about this magazine. Maybe this Friday, December 3, we will be a meeting in the Temple!

When do you plan to visit Chile?

To their lotus feet,

the most fallen of all,

Bhakta Rodrigo Hernandez Piceros 


Jaya.  AGTSP   paoho.  So, nice to hear from you.  We got three letters from Chile.  We were feeling very sad to hear nothing for so long!

We are in Argentina.

Yes!!!    Hanuman Prabhu seems to be very busy with other Sankirtana service!   We are also thinking to publish it in soft cover.

I think we are in Chile again in July.

If you meet her again explain that the BBT manager is in Spain and is very busy, but if she would like to publish it then we, HpS can run to catch him

If she wants to co-publish, share expenses, then we can talk in July.

99% sure that the BBT would keep all the copy rights and she could publish a fixed quantity under license.


Krsna doesn't care so much how much you give.  He is more concerned that you are giving all you have!!

Todas las Glorias a Sri Sri Goura Nitay!

Todas las Glorias a Srila Prabupada!

Por favor acepte mis humildes reverencias.

Hare Krishna Gurudeva, esperando que se encuentre bien en el más amplio sentido, le escribo para contarle sobre mi servicio. Estamos participando junto a mi familia en el programa de Bhakti Vriksa Zona Oriente, junto a P. Janardana. Hoy justamente tenemos una conferencia que se llevara a cabo en una biblioteca en un Mall, se hará una presentación de: ¿Que es la conciencia de Krishna?. Esperamos que sea un exito y más personas puedan conocer este movimiento y a Srila Prabhupada. Mis rondas las estoy cantando más tarde de lo que me gustaria, se que es una cosa que debo mejorar. Me encuentro leyendo el canto II del SB, texto 22, Cap 4, El Proceso de la Creación. El mes anterior con mi esposa e hija, ofrecimos casi todo el mes mechitas de ghe a Sri Damorar, tambien participaron unas compañeras de escuela de mi hija,encendiendo mechitas y pidiendo deseos al Señor, y ahora quieren sus collares de Kunti, es muy lindo ver a los niños haciendo esto de manera natural y alegre. Querido Gurudeva, me gustaria en algun momento ser un digno discipulo suyo, tengo mucha maleza en mi corazon que a veces ahogan mi bhakti, me gustaria estar con Ud porque me inspira de una maravillosa forma.

Me despido Gurudeva, le estoy muy agradecido.

Su sirviente

HpS - ASA ---  No podemos entider muy bien Castellano.  Pero TLGASP   pfanrh.  Muchas gracias sus noticias.  Aparece que tiene buena familia quien ayuda mucho en su vida espiritual. Adelante, puede ser mas y mas occupado en servicio confidential!!    Estamos en Argentina, y esta bien todo.  Claro, es una luch con Maya!

HpS -  AGTSP   paoho

Thank you so much for the news.  We were wondering what has happened to you.

Krsna will give you more and more direct service as you stay fixed and develop your regular practices!

We are in Argentina.

We just got here.

The weekened in Brazil was super intense.  Three big programs every day.

We arrive in Peru 31st Deecember and go directly North to Chiclayo until the 5th.

Then we are in Lima from 5th until 17th (Lima and Choseeka).

Candra mukhi Devi Dasi knows the schedule.  Her address is in the boletin in the link for Lettes to the Edito.

Very good news.

Just keep on!!!<img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/a37.gif" title="" />

Respected Guru Maharaj,

Please accept my humble obeisances.  All glories to Shrila Prabhupad.

Read the Kapi-Dhvaja, I was waiting for it and now, I come to know what's happening.

Guruji, one thing I did not understand, why there was no visa for Brazil on your passport? Did you forget to obtain the visa or something else.

HpS - Jaya!   AGTSP   pamho.   Esteemed Number One Son,

Paoho.  AGTSP.   Until 4 years ago Brazil did not require Visa.  Almost no South American countrys required them for USA, Dudes.

So, it was surprise for everyone. Everyone made mistake in this regard. Think that it was Krsna's arrangment in many ways. We were very, very, very tired but this week we have had like 90% rest!    Also we were very, very, very behind on writing projects, but now we are very caught up.

We would be celebrating your divine appearance day festival on 06th Jan 2011 in Sydney.  I am just about to book the ticket to go there from here, Brisbane.  One question-What time you were born, because mother Adi Adri and Dhaneshvari are in confusion, thinking that should celebrate it during daytime or in the evening ( so everyone can come), but first, we would like to know the time, kindly tell us your birht time, thanks.

HpS  -   I don't think it is any more divine appearance that yours.  For me "My Vyasapuja" is incredible chance for me to offer little glorification of the Parampara. We may deserve this opportunity or not, but as it is available we are taking it. We look at it as chance to glorify Krsna. The root of the Parampara!  Then Vyasadeva, Nitai-Nimai, Narottama Dasa Thakur, Srila Prabhupada, ourselves, yourselves ... in our proper perspective.  No more, no less!

According to our mother, she returned to her hospital room after the delivery and heard the cars leaving from the military base theater. She says that took place about 10PM,  so we must have be forced into this world about 9.30PM  I'm

In temple, we are on chapter 47, tenth canto, bumble bee, Uddhava pacifying the gopis.  I finished reading back to godhead Sep-Oct and Nov-Dec edition.

Chanting----I am so tired from my work that I can get up 2'o' clock and start chanting, I tried but always failed. So now, I chant 03-4 rounds in the train while going to work, 3-4 coming back and another 08 at home after honouring prasadam, peacefully chanting.  In my heart, I am sure that one day, I will achieve this getting-up 2'o' clock goal.

I was in contact with my old god-brothers Lanka Vijay and Varuthapa Das through facebook, and we found some old photoes from Vrindavan, Vraj Mandal Parikrama.  I will upload some more photoes on the facebook, so all the god-brothers and god-sisters can see them.

I will not ask you to come to Australia, though, in my heart, I want it, not for my personal sense gratification so I can enjoy your company, but for the other sincere seekers of the Absolute Truth, so they can find some shelter underneath your lotus feet and thus advance and for my personal purification as well,  but I know, you are very busy, very-very tired from your continueous preaching/traveling, so I beg you to kindly take some rest, May Krishna give you very good health.

Thank you, HARE KRISHNA.

yours servant,

Maybe we get to Australia!??

Raktak Das

HpS - Jaya.    AGTSP.   Yes, Srila Prabhupada also didn't keep a Sannyasa schedule while he was in Grhastha ashrama.  In the future tell us about the temple, devotees, family!   Now is 3.20PM.   We have to honor Prasadam!!!  Then work on our Bhakti Sastri letters,  Then to the airport.   Thank you so, so much for your association!

Guru Maharaja please accept our obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Dear Guru Maharaja, Im totally lost in this new communicational system I have so many things to tell you. We are, by the incredible mercy of the Lord back in Vrindavana, we could stay here for the last week of kartika, we are traveling alone, and that in a way allow us to have some nice realizations about association and the kindness and mercy of Vrindavana.  We are still living in Chennai, with Hari Bhakta and the children. we got married, but not in paper, I have to wait a month or a little bit more for the divorce papers from Chile. So I can have an X visa, that allows me to stay in India as a resident. Another news is that our family is getting bigger, we are expecting a baby. My family is happy, and I can prove some of my educational theories on the field. Varuthapa is coming to Chennai in 2 more weeks so I hope I can have his nectarean association, How is everything... I heard about the whole Brazil thing, and we got sooooo angry, we were thinking in your ears and the plane pressure, hope you are well.  During Parikrama we thought of you so much and that help in the meditation, we thought in our friends and walk with them. I will try to call you I will try to speak not that much too :)

Hope all your programs are working amazingly, like they always do. We miss the association of our Guru Maharaja so much. we keep the worshipping of our Narasinhadeva, we found a nice and cute Prahlada just the right size, he looks happier.

Hope to be able to have your association, thank you for been our teacher.

At your feet, 

Cakori Radha Devi dasi.

HpS   -     A G T S P ! ! !        paoho.   Thank you so much for your letter. We were wondering what had happened to you?!

Congratualtions on your situation, Ashrama. Our respects to Hari-bhakti Prabhu and if we can be of any service ask him to please contact us.

This system is developing pretty well.  85% of the letters from devotees discuss the same things.  If it is super confidential then ask us to arrange a special interchange, but usually we can see that most of the letters are things that everyone else wants to hear also.  We really are confronting very common problems in our individual way.

It is Thursday after noon.    We have the Brazil Visa!    We go to the airport again at 9PM to check-in. Then weekened Seminar on Education!

We heard that you tried to call but we didn't connect. Maybe in Argentina we can get more stable connection!

Basic thing again and again, in happiness or distress, alone or in a group, rich or poor, is get up early and get your rounds done!

Oooof!     It's a fact, no?    I have to beat it into my brains again and again.  I have 24 of my 25 rounds done. Always praying to Hara to pray to Krsna and Rama to engage us in Their Sankirtana as dust under the lotus feet of Srila Prabhupada.

Please write about Chenai, Temple, H. H. Banu Swami and who else is there!

Super success with your educational efforts.

Your marriage as service to Sri Sri Radha Shyamasundar!

You are so lucky to be in Vrndavana!!!

My dear Maharaja,

Dandavat pranams. Ram Ram.

Krishna is within me and within everyone. He loves me and everyone and He is everyone's eternal well wisher and He gives us knowledge and wisdom. He is giving life to all of us etc.. This fact is very important part of my bhakti.

For me, initiation strengthens my acceptance of my eternal relationship with Krishna. Same Krishna resides in my and your heart. Therefore, He should tell you to initiatiate me. It should not be based on recommendation or contract. 

For me, initiation is acceptance that everything belongs to Krishna. I belong to Krishna and my body, house, family etc belongs to Krishna. I am supposed to use Krishna's objects in Krishna's service. As Krishna is in everyone, I am supposed to use His objects in service of everyone.

When we act with understanding that everyone belongs to Krishna, then all our actions automatically become bhakti. This understanding is above all actions i.e. sadhana. Actually, the purpose of external sadhana is to realize that everyone belongs to Krishna.

If Krishna cannot come and tell you to initiate me, then He want me to be patient and wants me to deepen my acceptance that everyone belongs to Him.

Your servant,

Gaurav Mittal

HpS - Jaya.  AGTSP.  pamho

The problem with listening to Krsna in the heart is that we also have competing voices from our stomach, etc.

Besides that there is the contamination that material desires since time immemorial are in the heart and it is so easy to listen to those as well as the supersour.

So we follow BG 4.34 and Srila Prabhupada's purport.

A boy and girl have some knowlegde in their hearts, the wedding is a formality, but not a meaningless formality.

Is, O.K?
