Hare Krsna Guru Maharaja.

Acepte por favor mis respetuosas reverencias.

Todas las glorias sean para Srila Prabhupada.

Guru Maharaja, le escribo ya que en el templo de Santiago nos estamos organizando para el Vyasa Puja de Srila Prabhupada. Cada "familia espiritual" debe ofrecer una guirnalda para Srila Prabhupada, y leer la ofrenda que nuestros gurus (discípulos de SP) escriben para Prabhupada.

Por eso quiero pedirle si nos puede enviar Su ofrenda a Srila Prabhupada, y así podamos leerla el sábado 24 de agosto.

Muchas gracias Guru Maharaja.

su sirviente

Gracias. TlgaSP... Paoho.... En es la ofrenda. ..... .....

Muchas gracias por su misericordiosa atención.

Vyasa-puja 2019

“…according to the Vedic system, on the birthday of the spiritual master the disciples conduct the ceremony called Vyāsa-pūjā.” BG 18.75. Esteemed reader, do you also turn to this purport every year during Srila Prabhupada, Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami’s Vyasa-puja?

Our offering to His Divine Grace’s Vyasa-puja, in this little essay, is an effort to illuminate a little bit of the glories of Srila Prabhupada, Founder Acharya of the International Society for Krsna Consciousness, and author of the book KRSNA, The Supreme Personality of Godhead. We are like weak sighted men, standing in the dark, trying, with our candle, to illuminate the Royal Elephant. We do this for our benefit and the benefit of others.

Thus we work to hear other articles in this Vyasa-puja book that make their own attempts to illuminate Srila Prabhupada, and maybe in choir we can get some little, but practical glimpse of His Divine Grace: No one can take everything that the spiritual master is offering. No one can know the Acharya completely.

“The transcendental pastimes of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krsna, are so powerful that simply by hearing, reading and memorizing this book, Krsna, one is sure to be transferred to the spiritual world, which is ordinarily very difficult to achieve.”, Krsna, Chapter 90. Our first real contact with Srila Prabhupada was this Krsna book. One of his disciples, maybe Sriman Buddhimanta Das, was distributing books at the Davis Campus of the Universsity of California about 1972 and he convinced us to donate $10 and take one. This Krsna book seems complete in every way but to gain more and more access to it Srila Prabhupada has given Srimad Bhagavatam, The Teachings of Lord Caitanya, Caitanya-Caritamrta, Upadesamrta, Nectar of Devotion, Isopanisad etc.

“The main business of human society is to think of the Supreme Personality of Godhead at all times, to become His devotees, to worship the Supreme Lord and to bow down before Him. The ācārya, the authorized representative of the Supreme Lord, establishes these principles, but when he disappears, things once again become disordered. The perfect disciples of the ācārya try to relieve the situation by sincerely following the instructions of the spiritual master.” SB 4.28.48. When Srila Prabhupada disappeared from our physical vision in 1977 we experienced just what he describes here and took shelter of the remedy that he describes here also. Now we seem to see in 2019 that our Acharya is beginning to disappear again. This time from the natural passing of the years - Disappearing from the rituals of his society, from the recollections of his disciples as they grow old and pass away. This is quite natural but the remedy is still the same, follow the instructions of the Acharya: Chant 16-nice rounds daily on beads and follow the 4-regulative principles strictly. Then, intelligence (Brahminical culture), and organization  (Ksatriya culture), can be cultivated from that root.

What we have been able to take from our little connection with Srila Prabhupada is that the whole process can be boiled down into eight words: Get up early and get your rounds done. Done with enthusiasm. Then your day will be play. Management will be at your fingers end, there will be no question of shortage of funds, people will respect your preaching.

Thank you Srila Prabhupada for giving us this orchard of fruits, roots and flowers in the form of the wisdom and culture in your books. Thank you for giving us a connection to you through the Lord in the heart. Thank you for ISKCON and all its venerable members. We will try to be more sincere disciples and we hope to find some eternal place in your traveling Sankirtan.

One of your most insignificant servants,

Hanumatpresaka Swami

Personal Sadhana and Mandir Report

6 days, 23 hours ago by Yamuneswar Das in Personal Sadhana Reports

All glories to A C Prabhupada, Sripada Marsha and HpS Maharaja!

Radha Krsna Ki Jay, Sri Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu Ki Jay. Goura bhakta brinda Ki Jay

Dandavat Pranam,

Please accept my humble obeisances unto Guruji Maharaja's padamachran that I am so sorry, that I could not write and response timely. Now we are planning to form a new committee after expire of the old committee period. Next Sunday, the Nanda Utsav day we will go and try to form the new committee. We had requested time and again but the Secy. is not take up the necessary formalities for conducting a general body meeting.

HpS - It is Kali yuga! Even in Treta yuga there was Ravana!!! Ooof! But Vibhisana was a devotee and had his Sanga even in Lanka. He said that being a devotee of Visnu in Lanka was like being a tongue surrounded by sharp teeth. How are our disciples, your daughter and son-in-law.

My chanting activities is improving and continuing 16 or more rounds. Sometimes tearing in my eyes remembering the wrong deeds in my life and requesting for pardon.

HpS - Yes, and not do more stupid things now!! I feel same way. AGTSP!!!

Now, I am reading 10.33.6 ; Purport - Srila bhakti Siddhanta Sarasvati Thakura states that Devaki, besides being the name of Vasudeva's wife, is also a name of mother Yasoda, as stated in the Adi Purana "The wife of Nanda has two names - Yasoda and Devaki". Please explain the underlying ideas.

HpS - Oooof! I do not know! I've heard that they are such good friends that they have almost the same name. It means like worshippable by the Devas?

  • What about the janma lila of Subhadra, the sister of Krsna and Balarama? From which book we may get the interesting story of Subhadra? Is She the wife of Arjuna?

HpS - Yes, she is Maha maya if we are bad and Yoga maya if we are good. I only know of Her as she is mentioned in the Krsna book. She was born from Yasoda and exchanged with Krsna.

  • How to improve the last one of the 10 nama aparadha ?

HpS - Prabhupada one time said that we should just do it!! Many techniques. See what works, walking while chanting is good for attention for some, not for others. Of course, more attention early in the day! Just try and good ideas will come!

Yours fallen servant,

Yamunesvara Das

HpS - You are so kind to write to us. We really hope to see you soon. Now we go!

O spiritual master! You are nondifferent from Lord! you are giver of divine wisdom to the conditioned souls like me. Kindly accept my repeated Obeisenses to your divine lotus feet. All glories to you. A glories to Srila Prabhu pada. Maharaja please make me ennable to assist you in the service of the Lord.

HpS - AGTSP paoho Thank you for your letter. I hope you are reading the DTCs and the Kapi Dhvaja. Then you can understand that while traveling it has been IMPOSSIBLE to answer all of the very wonderful letters that we get. We see maybe 100 people in a day while traveling. Here in our base camp we finally have some time to answer mail. We are a very selfish person. If we have any good qualities it is because Srila Prabhupada has taken a spark of devotion and used it. AGTSP!

I am very very happy to receive a response from you. Maharaja we are going on Bhagavatam class every morning lecture by Banamali Prabhu and Ramanuja Prabhu and also performing kritan every Sunday. We have also done basic Arcana procedures under the guidance of Ramanuja Prabhu. I am seeing Kapi Dhvaja as you instructed . I am 10km far from the Temple.

Hare Krishna

Your unworthy & unqualified servent

Nandi mukhi Devi dasi

HpS - More news. Send a letter so we can answer it before we start traveling again. How do you occupy yourself during your days? Who are your associates? Do you tell them about Krsna even indirectly eg. the taste in water, the light of the sun.
