Tuesday Lady's SB Classes

1 week, 1 day ago by hps in Calendar Development

Hare Krishna Maharaj, PAMHO AGTSP. Maybe I can give the class in the ladies sanga next Tuesday. Regarding organization it is not completely clear to me on what is my role. Isvari mataji is already organizing. Did you tell her to do only Spanish or both Spanish and English? If you want me to organize the English, can you please convey that to her? I don't want to be offensive by taking away what she is doing.

HpS - We are all just trying to organize our ASA reading schedule. Nice if some English ladies organized alternate Tuesday but if not then Spanish girls can do.

THANK YOU!

at least still here, trying to serve

PAMHO

dear gurudev

I am writing to you as a report, I apologize for letting so much time pass since the last time I wrote.

Once again I had to reorganize life, the relationship I had ended, and well that involves many things: change of house and all that subject, I'm in a new place living with friends, they are vegan at least.

Although I have followed regulatory principles, the rounds have cost me and the daily minimum has dropped a lot.

ASA /TB - The Evil One will catch you!

In fact it is not more than 1 or 2 a day. I am finishing the semester at university and that has me very busy, despite the pandemic I am working from home. There have been strange times between being in the same place all day and coping with life itself.

I beg Krsna to give you health.

your eternal servant

Trivikrama das

HpS - Very, very, happy, nice to hear from you. Missed you! ..... It is an austerity to chant 16-nice rounds daily, but... the result is incredible. You family situation, preaching, health, wealth, school, work, insitutional presence, will all increase at the maximum possible rate.

Read the Kapi Dhvaja and use the Priority Code to get more attention to your letters!! Thye are very valuable. Become a person, not the shadow of a person, no?!!

Dear Guru Maharaja:

Please accept my humble obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

I hope you are very well, I am always praying for your health and well-being.

I suppose this is a kind of report ... I wanted to tell you that at the beginning of the year I quit my job, it was a decision that took me many years, anxiety, life in general, I went through many mental stages. I have been living in the temple for more than two and a half years, one year as a pujari and this made me feel the desire to attend to the deities more often, when I worked I only had time to do it once a week and it seemed little to me.

Also, I always disliked my work, it was very stressful, I mentioned it to you once.

Anyway, I was distressed by the idea of ​​living without money, for many years I had a salary every month, this would be a great change. I was saving for a long time to be able to go to the Holy Dham, with the economy of this country it seems impossible, I thought ... "if I work one more year maybe I will succeed", somehow I kept making excuses.

Maha Vishnu Swami was visiting the temple, he was giving Srimad Bhagavatam class and he said: Krsna is your best friend, why are you afraid? There is no reason to be afraid, he is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. I felt that Krsna was speaking to me through him ... I usually pray a lot for answers, signs, instructions and for me this was quite clear. That day I decided that I was going to quit my job because Krsna will take care of me even if I am afraid.

I grew up in a very poor family and many times I lacked things, I was also afraid of that.

But in truth I lack nothing, I have everything I need to maintain my body. The time I used to spend making money now I use to serve Krsna, although I realize that what I give to Krsna is very little compared to what I keep for myself, I feel like a thief.

Then came another test, being in the temple day after day without being able to leave because of the quarantine. This temple is austere, very hot in summer, very cold in winter, in summer it is full of roaches, in winter rats, prasadam is sometimes very very simple, living with devotees is not easy either, I remember you saying that managing in iskcon is like shepherding cats and every day I understand it more, even without having an administrative position. Much physical, mental austerity in the midst of a pandemic. I started to feel very bad physically, mentally and spiritually because I felt that my thoughts about the devotees were offensive, my rounds were neither good nor enthusiastic, so I went to my parents' house with the idea of ​​not coming back, I was sad and angry , "I left my house, I left my job, now I have nothing." Thanks to you I have FMP in Gotomeeting and classes every day, that helped me a lot when I was at my parents' house, I felt very lonely without the devotees. My parents are very good, they love me, but there is so much that I cannot share with them even if I try. So after a month and a half of being there I decided to go back to the temple, I really missed my service as a pujari and have someone to sing with.

Austerities are the same as always but I accept them in a different way, once I heard you say that this life is not to be happy, it is to perform austerities, you also said that we have to function on two levels, making friends with devotees and being functional for Iskcon. I am accepting these austerities so that I can serve Iskcon, Srila Prabhupada and your instructions.

HpS - This is not a back system. Some time in the Temple and then some time with your parents. Back and forth.. Others can follow your path.

Krsna is reciprocating, He is giving me the sweetest experiences inside the altar. Once Lord Gauranga gave me a look that I will never forget. I am always thinking of Sri Sri Gaura Nitai, I can see their faces in great detail in my mind. They are so merciful to me.

HpS - Yes, it is frightening! What will They do [email protected]!!!

The time I left the temple I stopped preaching ... recently I went back to give class by Zoom, it was very good for me because I felt that happiness again, the happiness of speaking about Krsna and being listened carefully. I plan to prepare another class, any suggestions about the topic?

HpS - What is this material world. What is the soul. What is the super soul. (Your personal dealings with Krsna and S.P. and..)

One last thing to tell, important, a friend who is living in the Zurich temple introduced me to Philip, he also lives there. This friend said that we could get along and created a WhatsApp chat to introduce eachother. Philip and me are making plans so that we can spend our lives together serving Krsna ... even though he and me are on different continents.

HpS - Do what you must do!!! 😎

Romeo and Juliet???

He is a serious and responsible devotee, I think he will take good care of me and the family that we want to have.

Was Kunti happy?

Gandhari, Radha, Darupadi, Juliet, Josephine? 😎 😎 😎

Are you going to be happy??

Were they SUCCESSFUL?? Are you going to be SUCCESSFUL?

ASA - Thank you! Melons of the Jungle.

KDPC. Help me surrender fully to the Guru

All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to Guru Maharaj. Please accept my humble obeisances at Your lotus feet.

Hare Krishna Guru Maharaj

Last Sunday ,with Your mercy we distributed prasadam and NOI to the innocent ,sweet people working in the paddy fields, maintaining the SOP as far as practicable.

Guru Maharaj ,would you allow me to join the classes at gotomeeting? My sadhana gets better only with your divine mercy. Not attending SB classes and mangal arti as one of my PG students tested positive for the virus and our hospital protocol restricts our movement. So offering the arti at home....missing the classes....missing Srila Prabhupada seva .....Bansuri seva at the temple.

HpS - Of course, of course. Join us. Enlighten us.

Reading NOD . Sometimes ,a little apprehensive... if at all whatever sadhana we are trying to do...becomes sort of mechanical...without developing love of Krishna....!!

Sending some photos from the last Sunday programme.

Your insignificant servant,

Sarada Gaurangi DD

HpS - Did you get the list of disciples to post?

If you die and go to Krsna. That won't be so bad, no???? ! Try to be spontaneous. Try to laugh with Krsna!!

Don't see any photos!!!!!!

Hare Krsna Gurudeva

Por favor acepte mis humildes reverencias.

Todas las glorias a Srila Prahupada!!!

Un devoto puro siempre está protegido por el Señor Supremo, pero a las personas condicionadas les resulta difícil entender eso. Por eso siempre estamos orando al Señor Nrishimhadeva te proteja en todo momento.

Nosotros (con Karuna) estamos bien, alistándonos para ir al Sur del país, algunos sitios están aún en cuarentena, así es que esperamos estar por un tiempo en el Cusco hasta que se pueda visitar otros lugares. Estamos pensando mucho en un proyecto rural. Recuerdo una experiencia que tuve con Usted en la oficina de la dirección del Gurukula, hace muchos años, pero voy a contarle de eso en mi próxima carta.

Este es el link del video que sirve como anexo al PPT que ya le entregamos a través de Abhirama Thakur p. a Héctor Béjar, para explicar un poco los detalles técnicos. Espero que sirva para una mejor introducción a los temas de ciencias políticas que tratará Usted en un futuro cercano con Héctor.

También hemos hecho un video tutorial de cómo usar el blog https://monkeywarrior.com/ y el uso correcto del KDCP para los discípulos y bienquerientes en su correspondencia con Usted. En el siguiente link:

Muchas gracias Gurudeva, te queremos mucho.

Hare Krsna Gurudeva

Please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prahupada !!!

A pure devotee is always protected by the Supreme Lord, but conditioned people find it difficult to understand that. So we are always praying to Lord Nrishimhadeva to protect you at all times.

We (with Karuna) are fine, getting ready to go to the South of the country, some places are still in quarantine, so we hope to stay in Cusco for a while until we can visit other places. We are thinking a lot about a rural project. I remember an experience I had with you in the Gurukula management office many years ago, but I will tell you about that in my next letter.

This is the link of the video that serves as an annex to the PPT that we already delivered through Abhirama Thakur p. to Héctor Béjar, to explain a bit the technical details. I hope it will serve as a better introduction to the political science topics that you will deal with in the near future with Héctor.
