Murari Sevaka Vision

2 weeks, 1 day ago by nkd1010 in Sankirtana / Temple Activity Reports

Dearest Maharaja, 

  Please accept my respectful obeisances unto the dust of Your lotus feet!  All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

HpS - AgtSP! I think we are hoping to have lettuce feet. Maybe after that rose, then lotus.


It is great honor to hear from you.

Our visit to Murari was wonderful

   I have a vision of ISKCON Murari Sevaka Farm Temple being a part of Your vision.  We are here, with land and cows (as well as other wonderful animals),

HpS - What is name of big, slobbering, friendly dog? Bhima, Parasurama??? He was wonderful.

...a few insignificant human servants; Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Nitai Gaurachandra are residing here, personally, physically.; by the mercy as well as sanction of our most merciful as well as far-seeing, most well-wishing Srila Prabhupada, Jagat guru.  

     I see super charged cow protection, with cow corridors throughout the land, first class fencing, old barns reinstated to their former beauty and use, new animal shelters strategically placed throughout the Property, 5-10 devotee families purchasing 99 year leases on 5 acre plots, more devotees purchasing home sights within 10-30 miles of Murari Sevaka, Nitai-Gaurachandra’s Home renovated to the grandeur befitting the actual Controllers of Tennessee - chateau style windows dotting the Temple building and elegant french doors coming off Temple room opening onto individual iron balconies facing the courtyard, these balconies will be blessed to hold many Tulasi plants and offer fresh air to the hopeful devotees as they chant their rounds.

HpS - Jananivasa das met Srila Prabhupada in England and then recommended his brother Panchanghri to go see him. He was really impressed.

P'ghri went and Srila Prabhupada was talking like you about the future of KC world movement, and P'anghri thought he was joking and was waiting for the punch line.

Then he realized that Srila Prabhupada was serios, and he thought to himself, "This man is mand!".

Then he examined his heart and said in equal surprise, "...and I am going to help him!!!".

   I see Murari having a simple, beautiful cottage where You can spend several days a week, and that will welcome other Maharajas who are willing to bless the rugged land of Murari Sevaka with Their visits. 

   I see young men becoming enthusiastic to work hard to care for Krishna’s land and cows and devotees.

    I see impressive plots of Marigolds growing, roses climbing up trellises on southernmost wall of Temple building, vegetable amd herb gardens placed here and there, wheatgrass swaying in the breeze, wild bunnies, wild turkeys visiting our peacocks, children laughing as they run through the fields to care for the baby cows, goats, horses, sheep, etc.  Many of the children will be locals as their parents grow attached to spending time and offering service to Sri Sri Nitai Gaurachandra’s holy dhama.  More and more locals-already so many neighbors give service to help us keep Murari’s doors open.  We love our locals, we could not have come this far in 3 years without their kind help.

   I see pujari training, bhakta training, retreats for Bhakti Shastri…, dancing workshops, sewing workshops, cooking workshops, Kirtan workshops, fresh cow’s milk, fresh goat cheese and milk, carpentry workshops; martial arts workshops, dramas being rehearsed, 8+ fulltime Temple devotees, school field trips…

    I see everyone within 150 miles becoming eternally blissful as they engage in preserving and developing what Srila Prabhupada so kindly gifted to all of us in 1975-ISKCON Murari Sevaka.  Srila Prabhupada noted to the devotees, after studying the map of this part of Middle Tennessee, that Moore County is shaped like India!  Srila Prabhupada gave the name Murari (Moore-rari) Sevaka, “Regarding the name of your farm, Murari is a name of Krishna, so Murari Sevaka means a servant of Krishna…”. Letter to Balavanta das.

   Please forgive me for taking up too much space on Your divinely inspiring page.  Thank You for taking time out of Your ‘bursting at the seams’ transcendental schedule to hear my ideas and dreams on Murari Sevaka.  

      Your eternal servant,

Mitravinda gopi devi dasi

HpS - It is wonderful. We had to skim a little, but this is super essential letter.

I have been talking with Abhiesaka Das, NgDas, son, president of our NIOS et al about, getting land, within 30-minutes of the Nashville airport.

Build a college.

30 residential students.

accomodations for 30-students for weekend semimars (part of online courses).


six vanaprastha families around the core campus...

Just an idea.

I think from Balarama we got the idea that management means answering four questions:

  1. Who am I?
  2. Who are we?
  3. What's the Plan?
  4. What things do we need?

Your letter describes number four in some detail, no???

What about number one?

How do you see your character, spiritual commitment developing things?

Number one for us predicts leaving this body in about a year. So, we are not making work plans. Just seeing how we can communicate a vision to others.

A teacher training college for ISKCON in Nashville seems pretty good.

Murari seems too far for these week end retreats but O.K. for one week retreat.

See you day after tomorrow!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

My obeisances dear gurudeva

I read Kapi Djava's, Blog and news, also your Twitter notes.

ASA - ... and still alive!!! 😳

thank you very much for your time.

Gurudeva, I would like to visit you this year or next.

I read that you will travel to Houston, I could travel to Houston between December-February.

I have an idea of ​​what it could be, but I really don't even know what will happen to me tomorrow 😂, but somehow I will be with you soon somewhere in this world.

HpS - We have tick-et (I guess that means little tick) to go to Houston 19th November. Then seems we may stay until middle February.

If your future is unstable,

just think of ours!!

Imagine yourself at 75-years old!

So, nice to visit Nila-madhava and His wonderful companion, Gopi Radha Devi. Come in a group?!

I understand you when you wrote about being in Tennessee with no plans and waiting for what Krishna has for us. So in the meantime, we can only chant Hare Krishna and do our best.

Vidagdha, the children and I are doing very well by the mercy of Krishna and his devotees. Muni and Mukunda day started a school. Middle school and High school. There are very few Latinos😅. English is a bit difficult for them, but their devoted friends help them and their teachers are very kind.

HpS - Bi-lingual Mukunda.

Vidagdha continues with the service at Govinda's restaurant and I make cakes, cheese cake, cookies 🍪 and burritos 🌯 (Mexican tacos)🇲🇽😁 for Krishna;

I also assist in the Gold Palace, offering, arati and sleeping to Srila Prabhupada.

Bath in the morning and pajamas at night for Sri Sri Radha Vrindaban Nath, Sri Sri Radha Madhava and Sri Sri Vrindaban Candra. Mangala arati, japa, reading. That's all.

Thank you very much 🙏.

Your servant Gopi Radha DD

HpS/ASA - Is there any girl in this world more fortunate than you?

Of course, Krsna will create problems. Especially for good devotees, because He doesn't want them to become attached.

Maybe by will of Krsna, Mukunda will insult a sage and be cursed by his son to die in seven days!!!

We asked for it!

We've asked to go home (and take everyone with us!)

When death comes for a devotee it is KRSNA. Open our arms.

Hare Krishna querido Guru Maharaja. 

Por favor acepte mis humildes y respetuosas reverencias. AGTSP! 

Deseando que se encuentre siempre en buena salud, bajo la protección divina de Sri Nrisimhadeva!

Un sábado que salía del servicio en el templo RMV en Chosica me comunicaron que m. Gauri dd deseaba verme pronto.....con mucha misericordia y bendición partió nuestra querida madre Gauri Devi Dasi. Por lo cual estamos eternamente agradecidos con Guru-Gauranga y sus queridos devotos. Era el deseo de ella que sus restos fueran cremados y llevados al Santo Dham...

Luego se nos presentó la oportunidad de visitar La Comunidad Nueva Vrajamandala, a través de una invitación que gestionó Rukmini dd en coordinación con Maharaja Yadunandana. Fue así que Devahuti, mi hija menor y mi yo nos encontramos en la comunidad Nueva Vrajamandala. Aquí es una gran experiencia en servicios prácticos, cocinar para las deidades, asociación con diversos grupos de personas de diferentes países que visitan la comunidad...Devahuti está experimentando por primera vez vivir en comunidad y también está aprendiendo diferentes formas de servir a la deidad en asociación con diferentes tipos de devotos.

Por favor deseamos tener su misericordia para seguir adelante con nuestro servicio y cumplir con la voluntad de madre Gauri dd.

Tratando de ser útil en el Sankirtan de Srila Prabhupada y sus amados devotos. 

Tarangakśi dd


Hare Krishna dear Guru Maharaja.

Please accept my humble and respectful obeisances. AGTSP!

Wishing you always in good health, under the divine protection of Sri Nrisimhadeva!

HpS - So do we!! AgtSP!! Same to you all!

One Saturday as I was leaving the service at the RMV temple in Chosica, they told me that M. Gauri dd wished to see me soon.....with much mercy and blessing our dear mother Gauri Devi Dasi departed.

For which we are eternally grateful to Guru-Gauranga and his dear devotees. It was her wish that her remains be cremated and taken to the Holy Dham...

HpS - Yamuna!!?

Then we were presented with the opportunity to visit The New Vrajamandala Community, through an invitation that Rukmini dd managed in coordination with Maharaja Yadunandana.

It was thus that Devahuti, my youngest daughter and I found ourselves in the Nueva Vrajamandala community.

Here is a great experience in practical services, cooking for the deities, association with various groups of people from different countries visiting the community...Devahuti is experiencing community living for the first time and is also learning different ways of serving the deity in association with different types of devotees.

HpS - Other devotees her age?

Please, we wish to have your mercy to continue with our service and fulfill the will of mother Gauri dd.

Trying to be useful in the Sankirtan of Srila Prabhupada and his beloved devotees.

Tarangakśi dd

HpS - So you will go on for a visit to Braja? Mayapura??? Then???

Hare Krishna introduction

Please accept my respectful obediences

All glories to Srila Prabhupada 🌹

Hello maharaja 🙇‍♀️ I have found interest in possibly seeking aspiring servitorship at your lotus feet. 

I have been residing and rendering service at ISKCON Murari Sevaka for a month now ( I arrived here 8/7/23) Most of my service is cleaning everywhere where I find dust and dead bugs!!!  I do my best to please Mitravinda ji and any orders she gives me as well. For the most part I follow the 4 regulative principles. My only hiccup has been consuming caffeine, but since taking shelter here at the temple. The desire of consuming caffeine has quickly turned sour for me. I have both been chanting 16 rounds daily and have had zero caffeine use for nearly 2 weeks now. I plan on (hopefully if plans don’t change) residing here at Murari Sevaka until I find shelter of guru 🙇‍♀️ My partner and I plan to get married sometime in the future and do traveling book distribution, but I know I will not be close to being qualified to do so if I’m not fixed, trained, and seeking shelter 🙏

I was introduced to krishna consciousness by my partner (Radha Damodara) 3 years ago. Both his parents were devotees at the Miami temple years ago (Siddha vidya and Krishna seva)

Since I was introduced 3 years ago, I have had interest for Krishna Consciousness and always seemed more and more. I lived at Rupanuga vedic college in Kansas City, MO for a month in summer 2022. (My partner presently serves here, and serves his spiritual master Danavir Goswami) 

This time now, I hope to aspire to actually jump into Krishna Consciousness fully and follow bhakti yoga for the rest of my life. 

Also! I believe Mitravinda ji, Nayana ji, and I will be going to the Murfreesboro program 🙇‍♀️

Hare Krishna 

- Bhaktin K-LÁ Krivanek 

HpS - Very nice.

We will see you on Saturday! Please introduce your self to us.

We are honored to be of any help we can.

Basically we have given up being Diksa guru.

We are too old.

Yet there are many nice people acting as Dika guru.

For example, Radha krsna Das in Houston.

Also, Bh. Vikasa Swami is near here, no?

Krsna, Gauranga, Prabhupada, ISKCON devotees, Lord Jesus Krist. We have so many Gurus. Now we just need to apply some basic things.

Seems you are doing that.

What were you in your last life to get to this position in this life?

What is BIG DOG's Name? Kalki? Parasurama???

Dear Guru Maharaja

Please accept my obeisances

All glories to His Divine Grace!

Bellow are some attachments from our recent movements.

Prabhuji gave class for Janmastami and the picture of H. H. Swarup Damodar Maharaj samadhi is from there.

Radha Raseswar temple has the biggest community in Bali.

We met Abhimanyu Prabhuji and got some drops of nectar from him.

After that we where on the way to our base and stopped at Radha Gopinath temple.

Newly opened in March of this year.

Simple ,yet Divine. As Prabhuji says, simple life, simple problems.

Prabhuji has some nice group that likes to go through sastra systematically, so he often speaks there.

H. H. Ramai Swami chanted on beads and gave blessings.

We are ready to take wows.

Your aspiring servant

But.Wang Pan

HpS - Super!!! AgtSP. Ramai Swami, Ki Jai.

We are 12-hours different. 2.49PM here, so is 2.49AM there tomorrow. You have Jakarta time?

Who will do the ceremony?

When is good time for them?

Radhastami day?
