Dear Hanumat Presaka Sawmi:

PAMHO AGTSP

Hare Krishna from north Spain:

Answering questions from my last letter.

HpS - To whom do you offer it? Do They leave everything?

JMHD-We offer our vegetables to our dear Krishna Balarama deities.

ASA --- Moooo! Give the neighbor Prasada!!!!?????

JMHD- Yes we try to give them as much prasadham as possible



HpS - Zonal Supervisor?

Yes , whatever.

HpS - AGTSP! This is good enough! Send Quarterly letters!!! This is very nice! We think many, many devotees will benefit. How is Hanuman Das and the Spanish BBT??? We will visit Spain, maybe one more time, before we die.

JMHD-You never leave Spain as you are in hurt of your fallen disciples.

But is great to know that you will visit us one more time before going back to Prabhupadas Lotus feet.

Any service for us?!

Just take care of your good self and let us know if we can serve you in anyway.

Now news:

-Marta´s father was diagnosed with Brain cancer

-Marta had a surgery to arrange her uterus.

-Getting pregnant has being dismish.

-Marta is living in Barcelona for the past 3 months taking care of father.

-I visit them on regular basis.

-We had several youth meetings in New Vrajamandala, Shantipur(BCN) , New Mayapur (France), Youth from Sweeden, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Hungary, France, Portugal meet in this places and had a lot of fun in KC.

This projects are developing more and more and is creating an amazing feeling of cooperation among the youth in all European yatras.

We are developing several projects in many EU countries.

-We also got some land by Krishna and Balaram´s mercy, we got 5 hectars of land and possibly a Youth hostel (Asram for 60 people)

We are still with the legal paperwork but the idea is to start a rural project for 15-20 families.

We have an amacing partner called Diego who is a very successful organic farmer.

He wants to train young vaisnavas in organic farming.

At the same time we will develop youth camps (for devotees and non devotees)

-My son Vrindavan passed 12 grade and the exam to access university.

-At the same time he is working at Diegos organic farm as summer job.

So basically we are all very happy about the idea of developing this rural project

At the same time we are developing a very profesional european youth workers team so we can get a lot of funding from EU and get a lot of support and training for our youth.

We are also trying to help as zonal supervisor in Spain.

You are always in our hurt (heart)

Hope to see you soon

Your fallen servant

JMHD

HpS -Jaya!!!! This news is so valuable. Please read the Kapi Dhvaja!!!!!! Chant more rounds better!

Letter to Guru Maharaj

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada

All Glories to Sripada Maharaj

All Glories to Hanumat Presaka Swami Guru Maharaj

Hare Krishna


Dear Guru Maharaj,

Please accept my humble obeisances at your Lotus feet. I hope this letter finds you in good health. I am also doing good due to your divine grace. I am your humble servant Nichintya Nityai Devidasi from Manipur. I apologize for not being able to write to you for a long time. Though we are afar, my Guru Maharaj, you are present every day in my day and night devotional services to the all attractive “Lord Krishna’ and our lovely Guru-disciple bond is strong as ever.

By your causeless mercy, I am able to continue my loving devotional services to the Lord. I am however, very sad since I cannot go and attend temple programs, SB classes and Sunday Kirtans and association with the devotees due to the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic situation. I hope for this to be over soon so that I can start attending temple programs, SB classes and Sunday Kirtans.

In the meantime, I am diligently continuing my 16 rounds of chanting and reading SB Canto 3, Chapter 1 “Questions by Vidura”. And I believe that my Dear Guru Maharaj is with me in spirit in my daily services to Lord Krishna.

Hare Krishna.

Your faithful servant,

Nichintya Nityai Devidasi

HpS - Thank you!!! Please read the News, Kapi Dhvaja!! Www.JayaRama.us Thank you!!


KDPC (Madana Gopala = Current KDPC, until tomorrow)...... ki Jai

All Glories To Srila Prabhupada!! All Glories to HH Hanumat Presaka Swami Maharaj!! Please accept our humble obeisances at Your sweet Lotus feet.

Hare Krishna Guru Maharaj,

My apologies for the delay in sending the list of devotees who got initiated last year...we miss your association so much dear Guru Maharaj. My apologies again....for the photos which somehow did not reach you...sending again.

Father and I continue with the BG in the evenings. We laugh a lot while reading the 14th chapter....bringing out the devil in each other!! Thank you for the wonderful mercy..thank you so much Guru Maharaj.

Guru Maharaj....don't know why ...but I like to sing Hanuman Chalisa... ! All glories to Anjani-nandana!! Is it forbidden ...being in ISKCON? Or should I continue?

HpS - I've never heard it being forbidden. I think it is 'forbidden' to chant it in ISKCON Temple pubic program or preach it to others, but??? I heard Prabhupada in one Ramanyana, Tulsi Das (?) symposium say that Rama carit manas is not exactly Ramayana. It is poet's poem about Ramanyana. It think (not sure) that P'pada's opinion was that Tulsi Das was nice person, devotee, but maybe influenced a little by passion and so let a little vanity slip into his poem, maybe adding pastimes not in the Ramayana.

Read it, write a commentary on it from perspective of Srila Prabhupada's books. We can see to publishing it!!

Still continuing with NOD . Getting some time off from material duty nowadays . Virus is benevolent. Last week ,finished a book by Dr Brian Weiss ..amazing work on Past life regression...

HpS - Have you heard of his work with "future life progression". Also interesting. We can use different subjis for Krsna, why not different philosophers?

Today planning to read The Journey within by HH Radhanath swami.

We hope and pray that we keep coming to you dear Guru Maharaj..

Your insignificant servant,

Sarada Gaurangi DD

Thank you!!!! We have to rest our eyes now. We will go blind faster than we are! Respects to your esteemed father! Does he have name!!?!! Did he fight tigers with the King when he was a young man??

Hare Krishna Maharaja, please kindly accept my most humble obeisances; all glories to his divine grace, Srila Prabhupada, our founder acharya.

In the interest of brevity and out of anxiety I am wanting to keep this very, very quick. It appears that Krishna has coerced me to open my mouth and offer my services as ... (Censored by Buck Wite) . I am nervous as all heck,

ASA - Heck from "hecate", name for the Devil.

(it is a secret mission that maybe involves crossing the Arizona desert)

If it looks like my offer will be approved and accepted by the community and its leaders, I am seeking your permission and blessings to assume responsibility for this service. Otherwise I will be too confused about whether or not this is Krishna's arrangement. Personally, I would love the opportunity to (complete this project and journey), as it would give me a sense of devotional revival and purpose in my life. It will probably be after Janmastami before things are finalized and made official, but I thought it best to seek your blessings now in advance, so that I can proceed in confidence, in the event that my hopes are realized.

ASA - Well if they give you a 20 mule team Borax wagon and lots of water, then it seems practical. As my old Grand Pappy used to say, if its important put it in short, plain Engish, what everybody expects out of the situation. Get everyone to sign it. Only agree to things for a fixed time eg. six months and then review it after that. Good luck. It seems like a nice service but you'll be away from home for few months!

dandavats at your lotus feet

HpS - Lettuce Feet. AgtSP!!! Thank you for writing to us. We get lonely sometimes here in the prison. 

I wanted to thank you for your association in the FMP, it is very valuable for me, the quarantine has done a lot of introspective work, a lot of struggle with the mind, anyhow a great fall is followed by great happiness ,Shakespeare said it.

At the moment we are attached to the Sadhana and my dear Gopal, I am living in Brazil but I got stuck in Chile because I came to do a healing course, unfortunately i couldn't continue along the course because of the pandemic... ...lock up your body and open up our heart, I could not relax, but I started to take a Vedic healing training with Guru Govinda dd (tilak’s mother).

 HpS - Hey!!! Cross species marriages!! ??

At the moment I continue translating the books of H.H. bhakti ballabh tirtha maharaj, and I am starting a service for a vaisnavi comunity. it is called Project subhadra.

 

from time to time we do vrindavan parikram online there is a devotee who broadcasted it via you tube so it brings back nice memories to chant japa....maybe someday my bhajan will be better and become sincere.

 

I wanted to ask you if my name is Radha Carana dasi or Radha carana devi dasi I know this question it’s bit silly, but sometimes you call me both ways I think it is just dasi but I wanted to be sure.

HpS - Wow! Sure??? I guess that only comes when we see Krsna face to face through the transparent via-media of the Parampara. I would say that it is Radha-carana Dasi, because Her feet I don't think are Devis.  

Someone who aspires to have love for Kirshna someday !!!

Pd: some potos of my favorite place in Vraja (Radha Tilah) parrots come to take Radharani’s darsan at 4pm….

HpS - Hmmm! Very lucky fellows!!! Wish we had it so luck!!!! Tanslate translate. Send a little extract here!! Thank you again. 16-nice rounds under the authority of Srila Prabhupada! Thank you!!

Hare Krishna Maharaj,

Please accept my sincere obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

I hope this reaches you in good health...

HpS - ASA -- AGTSP! paoho. "good health" is possible only for the dead. I hope this letter reaches you dead!!

I am writing to you this time about a marriage possibility, I apologize if the letter is extended, it is an important issue.

ASA - ... and we apologize if we must only deal with some of it, because we have many other Monkeys to deal with! Also, is it important to everyone, Monkeys reading, Donald Trump????😎

I was waiting for the astrological results to write to you with stronger certainty.

I am meeting a devoted disciple of Bhakti Prabhupada Vrata Damodara Maharaja, he lives in Miami, his name is Jayasacinandana Das, and I live in Chile. We have a serious commitment in long distance, we have never seen ourselves in person but we feel we have a lot of affinity for a Krishna conscious marriage. We made the astrological compatibility obtaining good results, I comment below:


The astrologers Abhaya Mudra Dasi & Patita Pavan das Adhikary conclude that according to the compatibility score, we have 23 Points. Taking into account that the minimum score for marriage is 18 points and the maximum 33, that is, our compatibility is very favorable for our service (23). In addition, they add the following comment “

ASA - Patita-pavana Das is my old, old friend from Berkeley Temple, in California. He has been divorced. Ironic, no, and making charts for other's marriage success? I don't discount his advice, but I do put it in perspective of what we have heard Srila Prabhupda said about astrology in the Kali yuga!!

This general compatibility is enough to get married and create a Krishna conscious future together… You will also be able to focus on spirituality and this Krishna consciousness will be your main focus. ”


We have the blessings of Damodara Maharaja and we want to do everything the right way.


My comments about it:

I am clear about my goals in marriage, I would only get married if this helps my spiritual development and that of my partner. Having that goal as the center (Krishna and Radha) then, my willingness to marry is favorable. However, I do not want to get married in a hurry, I want to know him very well beforehand, since we must know if we will be good companions in life, really test it. I don't want to marry out of just love or blindly.


 I am 29 years old and I have waited so long precisely because I evaluate my personal and spiritual development a lot, as a housemate and I also evaluate very well the applicant to be my partner. We are in love, delighted, but that is not a basis for a good marriage. We must learn to be companions and that occurs with time and experiences. 

We have a commitment, we need to bring it to the third dimension hahaha meet us in person and share more, until now we only speak virtually.


The plan is for Jayasacinandana to come to Chile in mid-Septembersobwe can really get to know one another.


I look forward to your comments Maharaja and apologize throughout this letter.

Your would-be servant

Stefani S. (Petti Michelena)

HpS - Was not too long! Very intelligent. Well written.

Maybe five points of interest! 1- is that it should not be the marriage of two people. It should be the marriage of two families. Get to know his friends, family, spritual and biological, and let him know yours.

2- Take first initation before getting married.
