Hare Krsna dear Gurumaharaja

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

  • The Isopanisad and the importance of reading Srila Prabhupada's books class for Sunday August 9 at 8 am is confirmed. I have lost my previous cell phone so I do not have your WhatsApp number. I don't know if you can share your phone number with me via email to coordinate the connection.
  • On the other hand, it would be possible if you share with me the closed book questions that you developed for Canto 1? we are working on the Pada Padma program and they would be very helpful.

Hoping that you are very well

Your servant

Hare Kirshna Gurudev, AGTSSGN AGTSP PAMHO!!

I've some good things to tell you and questions too. FMP is very helpful in keeping the fire burning in desolation's times. Thank you very much for your dedication and determination to the Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu movement.

HpS - Srila Prabhupada, Vaisnava Bh. Vrnda, Ki Jai!

I taught some cooking classes and distributed some books during this quarantine time. I've painted a lot, participated in Judo meetings, even some International ones, where my Sensei introduce me as a member of Hare Krishna movement and we talk about the activities that we have done in the dojo, The Prasada is always a good way to open many doors.

ASA - !! 'o' !!

(I've considered taking second initiation, but it's an idea for now)

I've a new project, I'm making decorated cakes. I really like it because i can mix many things that I like: Cook, Design & Distribute Prasada.

ASA - Our friends for many years, Maha-bhagavata Dasi and Kestrajna Das, had a catering business for Wedding, Birthday... Cakes. They would be a meter tall and weigh over 100KG. It was a whole science of strcutural engineering, decoration, PRASADAM distribution. She had moer orders that she could satisfy! Her Deitys were quite robust!

A few days ago, in an afternoon class, you read a interesting text, The Sri Vrindavana Mahimamrita. This made me think of somethings taht worries me a lot, when you was change the word Vrindavana to Iskcon, I thought about the situations that arise where some people attack Iskcon, its representative members and how that affects us, affects me.

The next day in NOD reading, there was a point that said that we should be intolerant of Krishna's offenders or of His pure devotees. This is happening now and not by atheist or impersonalist, the members of the movement, themselves sometimes offending to Srila Prabhupada.

So, You know me, i try hard to control my character and I've tolerated very strong situation, because they were against me, but what can I do when someone offends to Srila Prabhupada and his work, when I keep the distance and I avoid confrontation, but the offences are recurring. What should I do?.

HpS - Is a very important question. We have discussed it pretty often before. We traveled on the Vraja-mandala Parikrama for many hears with Lokanatha Swami and up to 600-devotees! Walk barefoot in the sand and thorns of Braja. Sleep on the hard ground in tents with 100 other coughing, snooring, devotees.... Pressure was intense, but we got a Mantra out of it: In Vrndavana only Krsna and Balarama kill demons.

If you see demons in ISKCON you can always chant "Hare Krsna! Hare Rama", "Oh Radha, please call Krsna and Rama to deal with these demons".

They will kill the demons, with great artistry, or ... or... They will empower us to use verbal, mental or physical violence, and it will be applied with such expertise, like a surgeon with a knife, that afterwards there won't be a bad tast for anybody.

It will be obvious that They are sending the thoughts, words, physical moves.

I hope your health is maintained well, we have a lot of service to do for Prabhupada and Iskcon. Grateful for your time, Your eternal servant

Parasurama Avatar Das, Santiago Chile.

HpS - Thank you!!!

Deal with the problems at an institutional level, amongst friends, with direct experience of seving Srila Prabvhupada.

We will appreciate if you can....

Please let me know maharaja..

Your servant,

Syamsundara dasa


Hps/ASA - AGTSP. Paoho... Thank you so much for the invitation but we are reminded of what Janaka Maharaja told the messenger when he announced that Maharaja Dasaratha had arrived at the palace door with the the Rama, Laksmana and all the others in the Wedding Party asking permission to enter Janaka's palace.

Janaka told the messenger to go back, and tell Maharaja Dasaratha, "We are so confused, why is it that the Master of the House is asking permission to enter own His Palace. Please step forward and order us how to serve you."

You want us to give the class, so that it is sufficient. By His Divine Grace we shall do it!

Bhakti-vaibhava Curriculum Development

5 days, 17 hours ago by hps in Special Category A

Bali-mardana Das has continued with the effort to integrate our Pan-american Bhakti-vaibhava studies with the facilities being offered by the Vidya-pitha in the Govardhana Eco Village near Mumbai.

The report from Gauranga-darshana Das, Hemarupa Caitanya Das and Sankirtana Das from there side is that they are still posting the materials for on-line study at there website for Canto Six.

Our ASA idea is that the esteemed devotees in San Jose with Srivasa pandita Das and Houston with Radha-krsna Das and Hari-lila Das, who are finishing the six canto study should integrate with the sixth canto on-line course from the VP for the mutual benefit and for development of the program for all time.

We will try to keep you informed.
