Please give us advice on how to improve this Sankirtan Bulletin and our Sankirtan.


Hope your Krsna consciousness is communicated very deeply to your students!


Hope Antuanette and baby and family are fully initiated into Krsna consciousness!


We are suffering some allergy reaction after arriving in Delhi yesterday!

The air contaminatin here is incredible!

We are physically depleted because of this intense Northeast India tour and so reactions to the air contamination has been intense.

No doubt that this body is near its disintegration.

Maybe we will see you in Mexico.

Maybe we can have teleconference between Kids in Mexico and Kids in Peru and they can make lifelong friendships.

Kapi Dhvaja

2023 January 22

Amavasya


We are sitting in Pechartala, Tripura, India.

It (the location of the Sun) is 9.06AM.

Little cold.

Simple village compoud of Vijaya-govinda Das, traveling with H. H. Haridas Swami's Sankirtan party.

Like three intense programs and up to five hours of travel on

rough, ROUGH, R o U gH roads daily, but very nice audiences.


How are you?


We are keeping the Blog up to date: www.MonkeyWarrior.Com.

Write us there.

Of course, we Tweet the Sankirtan news every hour as necessary:

www.Twitter.Com "huber_robinson".


Our health is pretty good.


Our inflamed Belly-button has cleared up a little.

Eyes and everything are good for 75-year of donkey, but vertigo, hearing loss etc are part of our daily functioning.

On the other side of material life, duality, our intelligence is maturing.


Die as soon as possible.

Let Krsna keep you here in a spiritualized body or take you back to Goloka as he desires.


HK//HR


Pablo, ArtD, HpS, Raul, Sridhama, Ananta rupa Das, finished the DTC-UT (US) like 90%. Little more work to do.


No news in the Blog from ArtD et al about 'Solaris' or their DTC-UT report.


Also, no copy of the Board of Director's meeting that we had while we were in Bombay!


WARNING:

💪🦍🦍🦍💪

The Supreme Absolute Undifferentiated ASA Commando will Suspend NIOS as affiliates of ASA unless they appear in the Blog by the next Kapi Dhavja.


[HpS - These guys are tough!]

Looking a Monkey's paper DTC for the last two weeks (and they are getting better and more pretty).

Inn Mumbai we visited with GBC Govinda Das and Sumanta rudra in Bombay about NIOS/BRC, and also Sumanta took us to meet everyone at the Department of Philosophy of Bombay University, who are giving the Sanskrita diplomas for BRC.

Talked with Subhadra, Varun, Rama-giridhari, Gauranga-darshana and then... to Manipura.

!

Thousands of Temple programs, initiations, Sadhubhusana, Vana-maili, Sarad, Yamunesvara...!..! .. Symposium on LOB at the Temple and big Univesity.

Was on television the night after.

Many very mature contacts for practical work with NIOS.

(If we get the Minutes of the last Board Meeting).

...


Then, this whirlwind tour with Hari Das Swami.


This Bhakti yoga of Srila Prabhupada is so, so authentic.

Our body-mind could not be doing this at 75-years old only because of years of Srila Prabhupada's Yoga.


Dhruva and Subhadra are wonderful association.


16-nice rounds and Mangala arti daily.


O.K.


I guess that is the best we can do with the communication resources we have.


Maybe visit the "Sukalaya" one more time before we go down the sunlit pathway shaded by palm trees to get into the jeep to go to the picnic with disciples and visit two homes on the way.


See you in the Blog.

🦍🌴🐒 🐷 🤖


PPP - In a broad sense Tom and Buck are thinking that we have arrived at the third stage of ISKCON

  1. They will laugh at you.
  2. They will attack you.
  3. They will question you.

So, now the challege is not to duck but to stand up with real examples and real information.


Srila Prabhupada's idea is that the GBC should be Grhastas and Vanaprashtas. Let's not institutionalize the emergency management.


Then GBC should take Sannyasa and also have their duties.


Seems some devotees take Sannyasa but do not get beyond Kutichaka and remain attacked to certain Temples (as Presidents or GBC, or cooks) and the few (quality) possesions of Sannyasis.


GBC should be ultimate managing authority but Sannyasis should be the ultimate spiritual authorites.

Big challenge.

If we cannot give that example, O.K. let people know we have short comings, but we are On The Job!

HpS - AgtSP! We had very nice association with Vipin Prabhu in Radha kunda for several months. We was also taking charge of the Ashrama mangement and devotees felt that he did a rather good job.


I hear from Sasi, NgD's brother, that land ownership and construction in India can be a problem, but with due caution I think Vipin is good person work with in these things.


Of course, it is not "our Ashrama". Is Anjana Suta Acadamy".

LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATIONS

1 week, 5 days ago by servant-of-servants in Hot Topics, Other

Hare Krsna Maharaja, please accept my humble obeisances, all glories to Srila Prabhupada!

 

I am Maha Anandini Radha dd, in charge of initiations and other services at Iskcon Chile until 2022, and mother of Narotam. I am writing to first of all send my humble obeisances at your Lotus feet. I miss him very much and I deeply regret not being able to see him in these upcoming dates. I have always been very grateful for your causeless mercy, I owe you my life and you are a person who always motivates me to continue with my spiritual life. My desire is always to be able to serve you.


HpS - AGTSP!!! Yes, we remember who you are.

It is very nice for us to hear from you.

Any good qualities we have are 99.999...% the sacrifice of Srila Prabhupada.

 

Below I am enclosing the recommendation letters for second initiation from Prabhu Parasuram Avatar Das, mother Alankriti Devi Dasi and first initiation letter from Narotam.


All three have been very sincere persons on their way to Krsna.


HpS - Thank you. Has The Narottama passed the ISKCON Disciple Course?


I don't think Alankrti Devi or Parasurama avatar Das' have done the Bhakti Sastri course, no? So, do you have some local examination for a standard of Sastric Knowledge for Second Initiation?

When might be the ceremonies?


Maharaja, I always carry you in my heart, and I long to have your association again, Krsna knows that is my wish. Always remaining like a servant under your lotus feet, again I thank you for everything, so much!

 

Bid farewell, Maha Anandini Radha dd🌺

🙇

🙏

danvadat Pranams 🙇🏼‍♂️


please accept my humble obeisances!


All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!


thanks very much for the replies to my letters. 🔥🔥🌧️🌧️ Was worried when my name was not on the list, ill ask Chaitanya Charitamrita if he is going to send an annual report.


i meet with around 5 devotees on zoom for an artik and bhagavatam class mon-fri & this morning we read this verse


https://vedabase.io/en/library/sb/1/6/16/


we usually read one verse every morning & alternate days leading a review/discussion of the verse. Have gotten to know the Bhagavad Gita much better by finding companion verses that mirror/echo or further explain the Bhagavatam verses we read daily.


I was supposed to travel with ISV devotees to Jagannath Puri, Kolkata & Mayapur this month, but a ladder fell from under me end of december and now recovering with broken heel. Got a 5 year visa, so hope to join this group for another trip to india this year or next. When im able to stand again will pick back up with a morning artik at my home altar.


Gurudeva, by your mercy i would like to take second initiation whenever possible. Cecilia is not chanting 16 rounds but we offer all meals to Krishna, and chant the Mahamantra & Panca Tattva mantra. She also helps take care of Tulsi. Tulsi has nice emerald green leaves since watering with a filtered water/cow manure mix.


By second initiation was hoping to take advantage of more service opportunities at the Berkeley Temple helping/sharing with cooking and altar services. Then able to help there or elsewhere with that training.


Are you connecting with disciples via gotomeeting 737859341? Wish there was a way to be notified by the app when you connect to the room. im at home 24/7 for some weeks til i can walk again. Hope to get the mercy of your association. Maybe pick up some espanol from those sessions? Reading Tava Pache Pache.


‘At the beginning of canto six Maharaja Pariksit asks how one can get free from this cycle of heaven-earth-hell-heaven-earth…y,’


‘sound familiar? Are you pushed like us to commit the same small sins again and again?’

p.18


’We try to serve, exploit, and enjoy the mind and body, which produces reactions, to which we react again, leading to more reactions.’ p.20 ♻️


Jaya Gurudeva!

Jaya Prabhupada!

thank you for your mercy!

Hari Bol!


your servant,


Loka Bandhu Rama Das


HpS - Thanks for all the news! Like a San Francisco Surf Board ride. Thanks.

Respects to Cecilia.

Great soul.


The second initiation is not so necessary.

Only thing it might add to your service is going on the altar in the Temple, and your worship at home can be just as potent.

Second initiation means all these formalities of Brahmana, Ksatriya et al.

Prabhupada says that the Mayor's wife must dress like the Mayor's wife.

I know a very nice devotee lady in Suth America. She is married to a senior admnistrator in the GBC structure and has to deal with many serving girls in organizing dinners etc.

She tells the devotees that her nature is to be a Nun praying in her little cell and working in the Nunnery garden with other simple girls but so all these formalities are a real burden.

Send us not on Whatsapp if you want to discuss details.

Thank you.


Don't go to India, go to Vrndavana!

🙂



Happy Vyasa Puja adored Gurudev!! today and forever!!!



HAPPY VYASA PUJA GURUDEVA!!! 🙏

AND HAPPY BIRTHAY!!! 🙏


Report month Narayana


Dear Gurudeva! Please accept our obeisances to Your merciful lotus feet! All glories be to Srila Prabhupada!!! and to you adored Gurudeva!!!


Please ask your lotus feet for forgiveness for the delay in my offering. I wanted to offer you a nice video. I thought it was better to give you what you asked for than my foolish words. It didn't turn out as well as I wanted but I tried my best. Apparently I have to schedule his "gifts" with more time and if I leave the body before. they are there ready.


thanks to our krishna I have recovered from the pain in my leg and arm and I can continue dancing for my lords Radha Govinda!!!


This is my little offering for you:

DANCE THEATER:


RADHA AND THE BEE:


https://youtu.be/Gnjj2gRdpV4


I recorded this dance at the end of November. The day of his vyasa Puja I spent editing this video and still couldn't finish it on time.

I learned that it takes time to edit and I have to do things with more time. I was just able to finish on his birthday, January 12. but I couldn't connect or go out because it rained the whole day! I uploaded it the day after his birthday and the signal was cut so I can only send these lines today.


I hope you like it Gurudev! I am ready to listen to any mistake. I would have liked to do it with a voiceover explaining some things before the dances. I am learning to edit.


The moment of dancing this Dance was so beautiful that when I finished... I said to myself... I'm done?? So fast??😆 I couldn't believe that something that seemed so difficult to do, could have felt so ecstatic! I am praying to have those feelings again.. to live that way..all the time.. I know that they are His blessings and I ask you to please pray for me to live giving the best of myself to others.


We read that you wished to offer Mr. Nrishimha noodles with sauce and beans on the day of His Vyasa puja, So Franco himself kneaded the noodles and we offered them to his team. As you know, frankly, there are few photos. So I couldn't take pictures of his ofrenda, but I wanted to tell him about it so he would know about Franco's service. His offering was: Noodles with sauce and pancakes with milk sweet.


I was thinking if at some point I could personally make an offering to you...but from the way I see our situation it seems that it is impossible for us to go to India...so I am going to take refuge ardently in your instructions, classes...and the wonderful memories with your association vapu. I don't want to dream anymore that we'll go because that's doing me wrong.


I always read your twitter messages by email and listen to your classes.


Thank you for being my beloved Gurumaharaja!!!


Please forgive any offense inadvertently committed in this letter.



His attempt of a disciple who wishes to please his lotus heart:

Radha Japa Prati Jalpa Devi Dasi


P.D : previous month summary:


We are very sorry to read that your body is bothering you so much... I think how I can help?...


I forgot to thank you for your beautiful photo that you sent me in a previous letter where you can see a beautiful sunrise in Vrndavan... very beautiful!!! Thanks a lot. I edited a video that dances 2020 and put that beautiful photo at the end:


https://youtu.be/UN5ukcORBfw I


I would like these photos of my attempted mother katyayani to be just for you, frank and gopal. Please

2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.


His classes are the water of my life and they ALWAYS help me a lot.


We keep reciting the entire Sanskrit bhagavad Gita on the auspicious day of Gita jayanti!!! Very Preety!!!

I still have mother katyayani there. (2021 2022). Please tell me if I should disarm them or leave them there under the trees😊

We went to the Adi Sakhi event.

I send you photos. And some videos:


https://youtu.be/d0yZAFmjRHA


https://youtu.be/05eJ-z2ubXs


Gopalito and I continue our association with japa together in the afternoon. I tell him to concentrate on his friends in Krsna's pictures: Krsba balarama subala madhumangala!! Let him think that he is playing with them... and he closes his little eyes and chants the holy name like this.

please accept obeisances of Franco and Gopal.

P.D. should i send the photos again? or could you see them? Gurudev? thank you adored Gurudeva eternally


HpS-ASA - Very long letter for us to read! Struggling with gorillas in the jungles of Tripura, India, but we went through it and got most of the content. Now we will look at the first dance link.

It is very nice that you are learning video editing!

. . . .


Awwk! The link won't open here in the jungle. We try later!!

Hari Bolo.
