[KDv-PC = Potatoes Gauranga] - 3 puntos


HpS - ASA - Piyari mohan Das wrote us a nice letter but asked us to edit it because a lot of it was very personal content that should be addressed in individual, but some of the points he brings up are should be discussed in our Blog because they have general relevance, they also remind us of related questions from others.

  1. Srila Prabhupada comments that every human being in the material world is anumat - half mad, neurotic. The same point was made in our class on psycho-pathology at the university. Everyone, you also dear read, no, have some mental illness eg. too shy, too aggressive, substance abuse? In some cases it is psychosis, pramatta, and we talk with ourselves publicly, and are non-functional in society. What is the Krsna conscious solution? How do we deal with the mind when it is harassing us criminally to indulge in illegal intoxication? I would say from my limited perspective that the answer is basically Srimad Bhagavata. There are so many different examples of people with these problems and the situation and it's results and solutions. Find your case study in SB. Find inspiration from Bhagavatas, devotees, with mental illness like yours. Eg. Epilepsy is common in devotees, society, so you can consult with nice professional people and others who are like you. Even more specific, chant Hare Krsna, Vaisnava songs, SB/BG. This is certified mental medicine for Kali yuga. If it does not work, chant louder. Keep the mind with some perspective while you are getting intoxicated, intoxicated and recovering. The Mantra will give you a float and once the intelligence, memory, goes though the whole cycle with the Holy Names, you will have so much perspective on the situation, maybe eliminate years of addiction with one episode in the company of Harinam.
  2. Should be get married, stay Brahmacari? That again is a very specific question. Talk with a lot of nice devotees, family who know your specific situation. In general we would say that Varna Ashrama Dharma has very little value in Kali-yuga unless you are a devotee. Focus on getting your rounds and 4-principles regulated before making focus on Grhastha or B'cari ashrama. If you have to make decisions while not fixed (for two years) in the 16/4 then do it, but don't expect much from the choice. "I had to make a decision and I'm not expecting that I will chose a great automobile. Focus before or during t,hat kind of marriage is to get you 16/4 together." Another point is you can also enter into Vanaprastha life. Boy or girl finds a partner who does not want gross connection but wants the emotional or economic, practical connection, of the Ashrama. Vaisesika Das, Vira bahu Das et al have taken advantage of this Ashrama, no?
  3. Devotees ask us to delete or edit a previous post, but unless the exact address is given to us, we can't always find them. Eg. this letter is https://monkeywarrior.com/edit/13278/


O.K. Chant Hare Krsna. Write to the Blog with the results of your Hari kirtan and success is guaranteed.

“KDPC = Papas Gouranga” (INFORME SANKIRTAN Y VIAJE A ESPAÑA)

3 days, 10 hours ago by jayanta in Calendar Development

Querido Gurudev: Pamho. TgSP y sus seguidores fieles.

Reverencias a todos los blogueros.


Aprovecho para informar de mi estado devocional: Seguimos con la meta intacta de volvernos verdaderos devotos algún dia y estamos dando pasos en esa dirección.


Nuestro sadhana (16-4-3-Lectura y seva) tiene un margen de mejora considerable, pero creo que seguimos trabajando en espiral y, poco a poco intentando mejorar la calidad de todas las prácticas.


ASA - What we do every day, at that we will become perfect - Srila Prabhupada.


Generalmente la calidad viene de la concentración y de bajar un poco la velocidad (pasión).


ASA - Si, y la viejez causa eso, no? Ha! Ha! Hare!!


Aparte de estos apuntes filosóficos, quiero decirle que estamos a la espera de los detalles del viaje a India.


El sankirtan dentro de España, básicamente como lo concibo, es: Tener la sede central o campo de operaciones en NVM y desde ahí hacer algunas salidas concertadas para programas específicos.


Deseo informar a la comunidad de discipulos y bienquerientes que estamos muy cerca de enviar la traducción de TPP al editor para imprimirlo en español. Espero que la semana que viene puedan estar pulidas las pequeñas correcciones necesarias y el libro pueda pasar a Abhiram para su impresión. Quiero decirle que TPP será, sin duda, un libro de texto imprescindible entre los estudiantes y estudiosos de ISKCON y, un libro muy apreciado por los devotos prabhupadanugas en general y, también quizás, de otras escuelas. Personalmente me ha gustado mucho el jugo que ha obtenido del Upadesamrita y la motivación para que los demás se animen a exprimir el libro. Quiero informar también que les he pedido colaboración a los discipulos de España para contribuir en la financiación de la traducción y los devotos que han colaborado han sido los siguientes: Yasonandana y familia, Bhakta Marcos, Mathura Mani y Jayanta& familia. En total suma un humilde donativo a nombre de Partha das (el traductor) de 300 euros para Radha Govinda Candra. El resto de su esfuerzo (la traducción) es una colaboración de Partha a su sankirtan, por lo que ya podemos considerarlo un bienqueriente nuestro.


HpS - Estamos hablar y ofrecer nuestra humilde donativo a el, ellos, cuando llegamos a Espanya! No, hay suficiente recompensa para los quen participan en el moviemento de Sri Gauranga.


Por otro lado, hoy (dia de la aparición de nuestra querida Sita Devi, Jahnava Devi y de la desaparición de Madhu Pandit), también celebramos la partida de nuestro amado amigo y devoto Avesa Rupa Prabhu, que nos dejó un dia como hoy hace un año. Cada vez valoro mas su influencia en mi propia práctica espiritual. Los 43 años que dedicó a distribuir los libros de Prabhupada solo son la apariencia externa de sus grandes cualidades. Me acuerdo de él constantemente y es un estimulo para seguir fuerte en el proceso.


HpS - 😥 . . . Donde esta el ahora? Naciendo en Nabadvipa con Nimai??


No me alargo más. Seguimos a su disposición para ayudar en su sankirtan en la medida de nuestra capacidad.

s.s.

Hare Krishna, Dear Gurudeva!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada & All glories to you.

Please accept our humble obeisances. (PAOHO)

 

As of every two weeks:

* Bulletin is now upload on Facebook (English & Spanish), it is also in Google Groups (English & Spanish) as listed at: http://www.jayarama.us/hello.htm


Hare Krishna.

We are back to work. Our brother just gave us a motorcycle, so we can go to work and spend less time in busses.


ASA - Paw Truck now Paw Moto!


Now that we have full classes, face to face classes... We can work more according to the pedagogy.


Our sadhana and worship is good, thanks to your mercy and help. Reading SB everyday.

Family is ok. Health is ok, too. Everything is on Krsna's hands. We are up at 4:00 am to chant rounds.. and now that You are in Boise, I can join online While I'm on my way to school.


Thanks a lot for your infinite mercy

EDT (Patrak das & Antuanette)


HpS - AgtSP! I think without his austerity to hang on to us, you, me, all of us, we would not last one week with Hari Kirtan or human life!

We hope all of our work gets good coordination.

Our movie director, Raul Zaballos, said, "More shots of kids. More stories of Kids". Maybe your kids can join Monkey and Piggy on the boat? Become pen pals with Nila Madhava kids?

Thank you so much!

Hare Krsna. Hare Rama.🌴


https://vedabase.io/en/library/sb/5/19/8/

Therefore, whether one is a demigod or a demon, a man or a creature other than man, such as a beast or bird, everyone should worship Lord Rāmacandra, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who appears on this earth just like a human being.

There is no need of great austerities or penances to worship the Lord, for He accepts even a small service offered by His devotee. Thus He is satisfied, and as soon as He is satisfied, the devotee is successful.

Indeed, Lord Śrī Rāmacandra brought all the devotees of Ayodhyā back home, back to Godhead [Vaikuṇṭha].

Moving out

5 days, 21 hours ago by yajnasenidd in Personal Sadhana Reports

Maharaj,

PAMHO AGTSP,


I have shifted in with my parents. I have very few things here. Difficult to stay for 1-2 years without the rest of my stuff. I was wondering if I should go back and get the rest of the stuff from my husband’s home (he don’t live there anymore, lease gets over in August). Over the past 2 years he’s asked me several times how to divide the furniture and others commodities. Should I take what I’ve been using there?

your aspiring servant,

yajnaseni dd


TB/BW - Hare Krsna. Is very difficult for HpS to answer such specific questions without knowing the specific situation.

Also he has Sannyasa personality.

You have Mataji personality.

He has heard and contemplates: A book bag, a blanket, a bucket and beads - these will satisfy all your personal needs.


Yet, for Sankirtan, when he flys in planes, he may check a bigger bag.

Take what you need for your Sankirtan.

Without Sankirtan, in Kali-yuga, there is no hope.

🙂 🙂 🦍 ...

Maharaj,


PAMHO AGTSP,


It’s been very tough to manage emotions this month. We ended up blocking my husband and his whole family. Our mutual apartment lease gets over in August. Over the past 2 years he’s asked me several times how to divide the furniture and others commodities.


My sadhana went down due to health. Now health is better but I’m not able to sleep on time somehow my thoughts bother me. Praying to Krsna and His devotees can forgive my offences.


your aspiring servant,

yajnaseni dd


HpS - Krsna tells Arjuna, one who does good, my friend, is never overcome by evil.

You are an example to so many other lady body Jivas who are in difficult situations in their marriage.

Did Mandodari have more difficult situation than you do?

Hope your Sankirtan is super.
