Hare Krsna Maharaj

Hare Krsna dear Maharaj,

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Please accept my humble obeisances!

Sorry for the delayed response. I've been procrastinating with exams and everything else. For each of my exams, I studied either on the same day if it was in the afternoon, or the previous night if it was the next morning. This is at least 4 weeks of content I crammed into a couple hours XD. Anyway, I managed. I know I should not be repeating this behaviour. I will try and change my habits next semester, perhaps with little improvement 😂. I'm just aiming for a pass so I hope I did enough to achieve that.

By Guru and Gauranga's mercy, I think everything will go according to plan. I know Krsna helps those who help themselves. But really it is only by Krsna's mercy if I'm passing. Now I'm on holiday!! For a month, yay! Hopefully I can be productive.

Thank you for always responding to my messages. I know you have a very busy schedule and I very much appreciate the time you take to reply. They are very meaningful. All Glories to You! And your service to the fallen souls such as myself.

HpS - AGTSP if you follow Monkeys Diary of a Traveling Creature then you know where we are. Buenos Aires. We have an elefant steps on your head headache around the corner. It is a lot stress, cold, dark, but the devotees ask such good questions and the Seminars are full of people. Even a dog can take part and dance in ecstacy. Hope you get an assignment, with examinations, from the Big Teacher in the Sky!!

Thank you for correcting me as well. Since you said, I found my beads and have been chanting on them. Speaking of chanting, I hate to admit this but I have been very lazy and slack. I may blame study but I know it is all about time management. I simply don't prioritise it. And that needs to change. I just need to find something to motivate me. And ideas perhaps? I've been in so much Maya. I think the only way for me to improve is to just go live in the Ashram. But if the desire is really there, I can do my sadhana at home. It's all about the individual. Please bless me as you are already doing so that I may continue my chanting every day. I have missed some days and many of them, I don't complete all. So now, I have a large number of leftover rounds to catch up on.... Please forgive me.

I have another question regarding this matter. When we are chanting, is it bad to be in a relaxed position? For example, laying down or slightly tilted. Perhaps it is not the best way to concentrate on the mantra?

HpS - Sit properly!! As much as you can. Chanting with the devotees is great!!!!!

That is all I can think of for now. I know I always have more questions but they escape me when the time comes to put them on paper, or LCD in this case 😂. Actually I had another question before but I thought I should not put it on here. And actually, very shortly after, I went to a class in the temple and my question was answered. Can't have been a coincidence. Krsna has a plan for everything!!! Jai!!

Actually, I think the only way to pick up my spiritual life is to just keep reading and chanting. To not stop. Otherwise, the less I do, the less I want to do. The more I do, the more I want to do. I just have to change my mindset. Please guide me.

HpS - Again God will guide you! He may be a little rough, but He will do it. Watch out!

Bheemsen and family are all good!! My family in Baku is very well, it is summer there now. They are looking after my great grandmother. She is quite old and requires a lot of care. So much of their time is spent on her care. Everyone here is great, working and working. Bheemsen comes home and plays games haha. What else to do for a teenage boy? My mother is working hard. I need to find a job so that I may help out as well. I also need a car so I can start driving to the temple more often hehe. Nandini is quite academic, always studying. I think she is the most smart out of all us kids.

I wish that you may visit Brisbane sometime soon to shower all the devotees with your unlimited mercy and intelligence and wisdom.

I hope your health is always good and improving. The Lord must personally look after you.

Please forgive me for anything I have done.

Your fallen, foolish servant,

Lakshmi

HpS - Mataji, the thing depends on you. If you fail us the whole Pandava army is going dow the drain!

Buddhimanta prabhu…

1 week, 3 days ago by Namacarya das in Other

Guru Maharaja, I always remember how you describe Buddhimanta prabu, how he gave you first Krsna book (second part), what was his diet.

Here is BB Govinda Swami speaking about Buddhimanta prabhu. So I thought maybe you will like to read it. YS ND

HpS - Thank you. We see B B Govinda Swami in Nashville often. We also served Buddhi Prabhu when he was immobile on his bed for several weeks but not like BBG Maharaja. Such, such pure people. We try to help them.

Thank you.

News from Radhakunda. VERY URGENT

1 week, 3 days ago by radhakundamataji in Special Category A

PAMHO

AGTSP

My dear Guru Maharaja

Giridhari das has requested me to ask you if you know the email of a devotee named Gourasundar who lives in Tennessee.

Also, he needs to go out of india to renew his visa and Panca Gouda prabhu can extend an invitation letter for him, since he knows Giridhari very well but he is asking him to get a recommendation letter of one or two sanyasis to support the issue if that invitation letter.

I thank you very much for your help in this matter.

I think this letter don't need to be sent to the blog.

Your (trying to be humble) servant

Tungavidya devi dasi

HpS AGTSP paoho. We just sent a letter to Nitai gaura sundara Das and your good self with introduction to Giridhari Das and a letter for President Pancha Gauda Das. Please confirm receipt! Those who live on the banks of Radha kunda are the most fortunate people in the universe.

URGENT: NOI Commentary Monthly Update

2 weeks, 1 day ago by srinath in Special Category A

Dear Guru Maharaj

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to you!

I transcribed texts 7, 8 and 9 last month. I will complete the text 10 and 11 in the next few weeks. By the next report transcription of commentaries of the texts should be complete.

Radhika Raman prabhu has not had much time to edit. After coming back from Europe a couple of weeks back, he was busy working on a paper for a conference. He will have a few days in July but will get more time in August to get the bulk of the editing work done.

He was saying he didn't get the email with your comments on his edited sample. Guru Maharaja, can you please send the email when you get a chance so that he can incorporate those comments when he edits.

You also mentioned about Japa Joe in Houston. I have downloaded the file from the archives and it has such wonderful instructions. How would you like to proceed with it Guru Maharaja? Radhika Raman prabhu was suggesting that it could be an appendix in the NOI commentary book.

Mukunda Datta prabhu was here in Dallas last week and we were able to serve him by making breakfast prasadam for him. We spent some time with him and it was very inspirational for us.

We miss having your association and hope to meet you in August in Houston when you come back from your preaching tour.

Your servant

Srinatha Krsna dasa

Thank you so much! The Kapi Dhvaja is about to go with Monkey and Piggys news. I guess Japa Joe can follow after NOI as a separate book. We can enhance it with your and Mataji's realization. Respects to Prof. Gupta.

Can't get access to our Yahoo Sent folder right now. Can you give us an approximate date of when we would have sent the edits? I think I talked to Radhika about this and maybe sent it again last month???

Again, thank you.

DYING for KRSNA.

Calendar news for you in the Kapi Dhvaja.
