Volviendo al templo

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada

Todas las glorias a usted.


Luego de pasar dos meses fuera del templo pude percibir lo poderoso que es vivir en el. Quiero ayudar, quiero servir.

Este domingo vuelvo a nuestro templo de José Miguel Carrera 330.

La situación es de emergencia como siempre, pero Krishna hace los arreglos para que todo siga adelante. Me siento motivado a entregar un poco más de sangre a nuestro templo de Santiago.

Afuera pude descansar del estres que me autoimpuse para seguir adelante como comandante. Ahora que vuelvo no quiero tomar un rol de autoridad, no quiero cometer ofensas y que eso dañe mi canto del maha mantra.

Afuera pude estudiar detenidamente el tema de la meditación y los chacras. Aplicando pranayama. Buscando formas para mantener mi salud en equilibrio.

También fui al medico, tengo colon irritable, por lo que debo cambiar mi alimentación. Creo que deberé evitar los lacteos. Casi vegano a la fuerza. Espero no volverme tan estúpido a falta del nectar de nuestra madre vaca.

Hay varias cosas que me están ayudando a entender más mi ksetra, mi cuerpo. Estudiando mi árbol genealógico, la carta astral, de la cual ya tengo 4 visiones de diferentes astrólogos, la meditación. Voy a ir a una nutricionista para guiar mi alimentación, comenzaré una sesión de constelaciones familiares y además una devota, madre Rukmini, terapeuta, me está orientado con diversas técnicas.

Se que el mahamantra ayuda en todo ámbito, pero soy muy neófito como para entregarme completamente, rendirme a sus pies de loto completamente. Es algo que anhelo, deseo que mi guru chandala yoga (problemas con el guru, rahu-jupiter en casa uno) se elimine y nunca alejarme de su instrucción. Servirlo siempre. Aveces soy muy revelde y muy fanático.

Quiero luchar y seguir adelante. Me ahogo en un vaso de agua, pero estoy experimentando que al poner los pies de loto del Señor en mi memorio, toda la ignorancia se apasigua.

Tomeme muy fuerte porfavor y no me deje caer. Gracias por la misericordia que tiene con esta alma condicionada. Tenemos la luz de Srila Prabhupada que nos guia. ¡Jaya Srila Prabhupada!

Le dejo la pregunta que hice en gotomeeting:

¿Puede existir anharta nivritti antes de la iniciación?

HPS - Hablando de anartha nivrtti en un sentido técnico, en términos generales, es afte Bhajana Kriya, iniciación, pero todo es parte del mismo proceso de despertar, así que sí, algo de anarta nivrtti ocurre antes de la iniciación. Trata para unos semanas vivir en el templo y entonces revisar su situacion.

Hare Krishna Maharaja, hoy lo vi en sankirtan y espero verlo siempre.

Mis reverencias, gracias por su respuesta de la carta anterior.

Piero Saavedra Torchio, su sirviente.

There is very little left for your arrival to Lima and we love the idea. Your association is the best time of the year, Gurudeva.

Here some ideas about the educators' event:

The weekend of June 29 and 30, is it okay?

you propose:

  • What is an Educated Man? How do we Learn? - HH HpS
  • What Educational Programs are their in Lima, Peru, Globally? What is MOE? - Gandharva das

Additionally, I propose:

  • How much education is good education? (education for Varnasrama) - Karuna Krsna das
  • Standarized education and personalized education - LAD
  • The role of the teacher and the teaching styles- (Candramukhi dd)
  • Home education and Vaisnava values (reading fragments from the book of Aruddha devi dasi) - Priya Carnana devi dasi
  • Krsna Consciousness and the Waldorf Method - Patraka das
  • Lectures and workshops, debates??
  • We can broadcast the whole event (both days), I have to talk with Jagat Pavitram (our own resident engineer 😌
  • )

Eager to know your opinion

Your insignificant servant

Gandharva das

HpS - Hare Krsna! This time we got your letter immediately. Thank you. We texted you some ideas this morning. Did you get those?

Reception Friday night.

Lectures Saturday morning

Workshops in the afternoon

Cultural program at night

Closure Sunday. O.K.?? One workshop would be 'Uncle Gismo, Drawing Baby Krsna'.

Everybody should have a Synopsis of their presentations here within two weeks, and a power point by the following week! 😁

Regional representantion report 03 (URGENT)

HpS - ASA - Drat!! We missed this "URGENT" letter. Please forgive us and don't be discouraged. Try to engage us again!

Hare Krsna dear Gurumaharaja

Please accept my humble obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

All glories unto you!

I hope you are in good health,

ASA - Allergy and Old age. Good friends for a devotee!

I hope your programs are progressing as wait (wanted), I hope that Lord Nrsimha always protects you. I am writing to inform you about the progress, stagnation and setbacks in the MOE's representation service.

  • I talked to ARTD last week who told me about your idea to call some educators of the Peruvian yatra as well as some foreigners to meet in Chosica and exchange some discussion issues. I understand that, since time is short, it is about organizing an event that corresponds mainly to people in charge of education. Nothing very big. ARTD mentioned Jiyada Nrsimha (Bolivia), Panca tattva (Argentina), Gopala (Chile), in addition to extending the invitation to a devotee from Ecuador (Katunya Nitay? Rupa Gosay?). However, Karuna Krsna prabhu has just returned from BRasil (GBC College meeting) and he tells me that Jiyada Nrsimha prabhu travels to Spain and that Panca tattva prabhu had thought travel to Peru for the event of Education and the sacred (November).

HpS - Awk. We were only thinking of devotees in Peru, Lima area.

  • Karuna Krsna prabhu is in accordance with our intention to carry out this meeting, perhaps it would be convenient that some invited educator come and be able to connect with others by teleconference. What topics do you suggest, Gurudeva? I think it's important to review the philosophy concepts of education, I do not think that any educational program that seeks relative success does without clarifying and defining these aspects.

HpS - Again, just local devotees. Themes: What is an Educated Man? How do we Learn? What Educational Programs are their in Lima, Peru, Globally? What is MOE? Presentations by many people. Spanish, English.

  • I have been in contact with devotees in Guyana, apparently they have no further contact with the Ministry and Tapana Misra prabhu asked me to contact them. I ask for your permission to collaborate in some way with their program while the corresponding representation is made official. ARTD told me that the case of devotees in Colombia is similar.

HpS - Of course, have fun!

  • Progress is being made with the local agenda, the devotees of Lima are interested but not all are equally cooperative. A few like Candramukhi dd and Jagat Pavitram prabhu keep a fluid communication and comply expeditiously with the acquired commitments, others are slower and others indifferent. I must assume that I will see the same in other yatras.

HpS - Yesssss but we move ahead.

  • Baladeva prabhu accepted the position of Bhakti sastri examiner , is enthusiastic and has offered his support. We are waiting for your approval, that of Prabhu Mathuresh and the National Board. Administration service has been offered to Jiva Sakti prabhu, but Candramukhi dd has expressed his will to participate actively in the BS program. What do you suggest? The political climate is very polarized, there are educators who remains in margin, others participate to achieve a change and others have decided to defend what is indefensible. The truth is that due to this political confrontation communication with some educator devotees is difficult.

HpS - We will be in Lima in a few days. Let us discuss it then. Fix some time for these programs for the two weekends we will be in Chosica, 15th and 29th. We will arrive Friday night and leave Sunday afternoon.

  • Finally, I talked with prabhu Mathuresh, he invited me to the June meeting in Cochabamba in that way I can contact local and La Paz educators. Good deal!. It is very likely that I will travel to Bolivia with Indira Sakti for those days, Gurumaharaja.

ASA - We were hoping so. NIOS can even help with some of the travel costs.

That's all for the time Gurudeva. I look forward to your response.

Your tiny servant.

Gandharva dasa

HpS - Again. Sorry that this was delayed. If you don't get a response within five days, then Text us on the Blog.

Dear Gurudeva

Please accept my obeisances.

It's been a while since I wrote to you. Excuse me please.

HpS - We are answering too slow also!

The last three years I have spent my time mainly taking care of my children, husband and university studies. It has been difficult and we had to make sacrifices that sometimes seemed useless.

Finally, in August I will conclude the degree in Pedagogy and I can see how all the effort, although small, is taken by Krishna in His service. Only Krishna and his devotees make all sacrifice worthwhile. Although to be honest, I often think that I am unable of doing something well and the more I learn about something, the more useless I feel.

Now I am doing social service in a boarding school for boys between 6 and 13 years old. Catholic education is given to children from dysfunctional families, children of single mothers, orphans, etc. It is a very nice place, with a beautiful garden, it has its own church and Spanish nuns who take care of the children live there. It is something like a Gurukula but Catholic. I think constantly that it would be wonderful if there was a school, as beautiful as this one, but of devotees of Krishna.

My services in the temple are now minimal, but constant. Deity kitchen, garlands and some occasions on the altar. Prabhu Vidagdha recently returned to the administration of the temple restaurant and dressed Sri Sri Radha Madan Gopal once a week.

This year we decided to continue with homeschooling, because attending school was not favoring Mukunda and Muni, both academically and spiritually. I am now doing a lot of research and writing about homeschool and distance learning modalities, certifications, curriculums, teaching resources.

I am chanting 16 rounds and following the 4 regular principles, although I have difficulty getting up to mangala arati. I also think that I should especially improve my appreciation of devotees and not get carried away by my mind in making criticism and focusing on faults of others. Many times I have felt hurt and I have lost confidence in others because of that. I am also aware that I have hurt others too.

Gurudeva, you know what kind of person I am, I can not fool you. I just want to change and improve.

HpS - Actually we know you in a very esoteric way but practically you have to cultivate association with devotees on a daily basis, no?

We hope to see you in your transit through Mexico and we wish you to be very well.

Sent greetings Vidagdha, Mukunda and Narada Muni.

Your servant Gopi Radha DD.

 HpS - It is very nice to get your letter. We have read with interest all your news of homeschooling, diploma etc. Little little steps make a long journey. Respects to the head of the restaurant!!! You should pray to Krsna that you all can visit Lima sometime!

What kind of body do you think you will get in your next life? Boy, girl, Brahmana, Sudra, Mexico, Goloka, Gokula, ISKCON?
