Personal Sadhana and Mandir Report

2 weeks, 3 days ago by Yamuneswar Das in Personal Sadhana Reports

All glories to Guruparampara, AC Prabhupada, Sripada Maharaja and HpS Guru Maharaja!

Radha Krsna Ki Jay, Goura Bhakta Brinda Ki Jay!

Dandabat Pranam Guru Maharaja,

HpS - AGTSP paoho We are very sad to take one month to answer to this letter, but we have been traveling from USA to England to Spain and now we are preparing for India. Also we do administrative work for the GBC, etc. etc.

Please accept my humble obeisances unto Guruji Maharaja's padmacharan that after getting Gurujis amrtabani from time to time, I can continue upward in the spiritual life. Last Sunday, we try our maximum effort to form a new committee to manage the Thoubal Mandir but unfortunately, we can't trace out the old documents of Registration of Society Act, Govt. of Manipur. Actually it was registered in the year 2006, and all documents were handed over from Secretary to Secretary. Now we need to register a new one, for this we are preparing the list of the members, with photos, adhar separately only then we can submit the documents and get the new Registration No. For preparation of all this documents we will take at least two months.

HpS - Have the same fight with the air tickets, temple management! Just go ahead and don`t waste time. Do it all efficiently and try to keep the records safe this time.

My normal activities of spiritual life are continuing, Mangal Arati, Japa, Remembering of selected slokas from Gita, Bhagavatam, NOI, Brahma Sanghita, Ten rules of Veisnaba. Now the proof reading of the translation of "Gita As It Is " in Manipuri (both Bengali and Meitei Mayek) by Prabhu Partha Sarathi Das is in the final stage. It is also a big work.

HpS - With all the purports!!!?

My daughter and son-in-law are staying in Bangalore and continuing their services there.

All the initiated bhaktas of Thoubal are not so active as we expected and can not met so frequently.

Yours fallen Servant

Yamuneswara Das

HpS - We are in India from 2-12. Maybe we can talk on phone. I think it is easy to see Krsna in Manipur. Here it is like looking a wall made by a machine. So much mechanization happening!

Reporte de sadhana Ananda m.

¡Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada!

Por favor acepte mis humildes reverencias 🙏

Hare Krishna Gurudeva mi esposo y yo deseamos se encuentre bien de salud, le escribo para contarle que estoy por iniciar estudios en Bhakti sastri, mi esposo me a brindado mucho apoyo para lograr esta meta de mi vida y continuar desarrollando mi vida espiritual. El curso es online en Cultura del Bhakti fue recomendado por muy buenos devotos en Mty. ahora mi vida en el hogar y mis hijos e logrado encontrar tiempo para estudiar y me encuentro muy entusiasta :).

Mi sadhana a mejorado en casa y gracias a Krishna el negocio está creciendo de manera favorable para la prédica y distribución de prasadam, mi esposo está muy feliz de verlo en su visita a Cdmx. y con las bendiciones de Krsna esperamos viajar en Diciembre en México para su visita.

Le comparto que a principios de Agosto se realizó el 6to festival de Jala Yatra en Monterrey se llevaron 4 botes lleno de devotos en el Paseo Sta. Lucía, fue muy hermoso ver el cariño de la comunidad que a tomado a este bello festival. gracias por sus instrucciones y bendiciones para continuar la misión de Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu <3 por el momento son las nuevas noticias que tengo para usted.

Su insignificante sirviente Ananda maya devi dasi.

HpS -ASA -- AGTSP. paoho. Desculpa, muy lento para responder. ¡En menos de dos semanas hemos pasado por Nashville, Londres, Madrid, Guadalajara, Madrid, Barcelona y hemos tenido programas con el Embajador de India, el jefe de Antropología de la Universidad Complutense y el Centro para la Ciencia de las Religiones, etc.!

¡Tu noticia es muy bonita! ¿Has comenzado Bh. Sastri? ¿Qué libros estudias primero? ¿Qué orden de estudio? Respetos a Gadadhara y sus hijos y los devotos.

Sería muy agradable verlos a todos en diciembre. Espero que todos podamos participar en el Maratón de una manera feliz.

El festival de navegación es super. ¡A Radha y Krsna les gusta mucho ir en botes!

Urgent / Banana : Hare Krsna Dear Gurudev

2 weeks, 3 days ago by Gopal C Biswas in Other

Hare Krsna Dear Guru Maharaj,

  Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet.

HpS - My Lotus Feet are very covered. Now I have physical feet. They are clean but made of skin, bones, tendons. How are your feet¿

  All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

  All glories to Guru parampara.


  Gurudev, i joined Triaksha Automation Technologies Pvt Ltd as a employee and  

  working for MPhasis. As per revised schedule i need to travel on October 1, 2019 and will

return on October 24, 2019 from UK, not sure if i would be able to meet you in India or not.

HpS - They are lucky to get you! When do you travel exactly? We get to Delhi on Oct 2nd and are there for five hours, then we go to Mumbai-GEV-


  Hope krsna will allow me to visit ISKCON London to see Srila Prabhupad stablished

  temple.

HpS - Yes, such and opportunity!! Read the Lila amrta?


  My Heart is full with sorrow as i am working materially. Time should have 

  been used for Krsna. Hope things will get settled soon as my heart doesn’t allow 

  working for material purpose but still doing.... 

HpS - Krsna is going to use you for His Sankirtana. At least you can distribute transcendental smiles. More than that you preach from Canto Two, Chapter One.


  My time is up, this life i spoiled without doing anything for krsna. But i am 

  committed to follow my vow till end of this life and life after lifes. i will

  live for Krsna's services only, can't live without him else die.

Committed vows are not enough for me to live, am not satisfied.

your fallen servant,

Girivara

HpS - Can be Niyama-agraha, no? NOI - 2. We have to purify WHY we are performing committed vows. Almost for certain it is from fear or desire in some degree. So that blocks our spontaneous relation with Krsna from manifesting, no?

Reading we see how to follow the rules spontaneously.

report 8

earlier letter https://monkeywarrior.com/detail/10448/

Hare Krsna Maharaj, PAMHO, AGTSP

all glories to you..

we are thank you for having daily SB classes online...

we waited for your letter on node 10448, so to ensure that can we increase our rounds from four 10 sixteen.

we then on this ekadasi increased them to 16 ourself. however we are finding imbalance in life. but dont know which is better 16 rounds or imbalance..

our reading is average 30 pages.....we are reading e book.

nothing much to report..

we have one question:

From Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur schedule available on internet it seems he did not give family time either sankirtana or household activities...

manier times we have heard from you, if family members can sit togher and do chanting, then there is no need to leave home.

can you reconcile two statements.

HpS - Hare Krsna. Wrote whole answer and then lost it in the internet failure. Is 1 AM we are sitting in the kitchen closet with the potatoes and ghee. INternet is here.

Read your other letter.

If you can do 16-rounds for two weeks great. Don't fail and if it is too much then make another standard next time.

Your other letter was great.

Know us and trust us as we are. We are just trying to represent Srila Prabhupada as an Acharya to you. We are not a Founder Acharya. Only half perfect disciple. Clean the earth off of us and use us to connect to him.

Hope your family life improves. You seem to have a pretty good wife.

Bhaktivinode Th. life from the internet seems good to me, but I think it is difficult to understand without Srila Prabhupada's interpretation. May not even be a completely accurate picture. Eg. maybe it was his standard during Kartika.

Also hundred years ago, more, in Orissa. Maybe husband and wife only met to talk morning and evening and longer on the weekends. Maybe ladies had their own Kirtan.

Our ISKCON standard as far as I know is nice morning and evening program for everyone and then working as Sankirtan partners in the Sankirtan movement.

Try to send then now.

report 7

previous report https://monkeywarrior.com/detail/10413/

hare krsna Maharaj, PAMHO, AGTSP,


one update-- we were discussing with a devotee about verse 4.34. from that we understood that we have to follow one person whom we trust and inspired. yeah it seems for us its yo..

As you asked us to chant 4 rounds, we chanted minimum 4 rounds during these 14 days. we do feel guilty that we dropped the level from 16 rounds. we dont know what is in store for us. but as blind man follows, so do we..

moreover we found that our chanting 16 rounds were for our ego/self concept, not for your pleasure , or Srila Prabhupada or Krsna.....We have been self fish, thats the problem of when one prefers to stay alone generally. ...

everything is on plane of mind (accept/reject)..anyways thats what we found out..

you asked us "Next report tell us about how many nice gifts you got for Mataji"

we had big quarrel with Mataji (espousa) where we were very very critical. Then she stayed outside for around 12 days. Moreover what gifts we can give her, its difficult to find out.... because she wants peace over gifts. We can not give her peace because we are just hanging on somehow, not knowing where to go or what to do ( firing bullets in smog). the degree of uncertainity seems very high. only solace is that Parikhshith prabhu ji seems to be enjoy rituals of Spiritual life much more than us..

What was the benefit of the Japa vrata (if any)

japa helps us to stabilizes our vatta rog, head spinning reduces. it helps us to be on contact of Parampara.

as we have reduced japa, we are now able to hear different devotees on topic of internal strengh/ husband wife etc...crux of discussion/classes is

  1. people think " i need heaven for myself, i dont need to change myself much"...
  2. need to raise level of consciousness so that problems dont SEEM as big they are.
  3. live and let live...
  4. VDAD (vaisnava das anu das ) identity is much more important VAD(Varna asram ) identity... hope we can stay on this platform...

...............

stupid fortunate horse

HpS - Thank you. Sorry slow to answer. Traveling. Bad internet. Lot of pressure for week devotee. We will look at your next letter!

Very inspiring to hear from you. First see problems clearly.

Invitation to Faculty of Psychology

Hare Krsna dear Guru Maharaja

Please accept my obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I hope you are in good heatlh and happy.


I want to inform you too, there is a new bhakta, José David, university student, who wants to invite you to the Faculty of Psychology, San Ignacio de Loyola University, here in Lima.

If you agree, he wants to know the date and topic you want to speak about, so he can organize and schedule with the authorities of his faculty.

Thank you very much.

Your eternal servant,

Jiva-Sakti dasa.

HpS - Very nice can you please coordinate with Abhirama Th. Das?? He is trying to adjust the calendar. We can integrate out with Education and the Sacred.
