Hare Krishna dear guru Maharaja,
Regarding the wonderful news of your visit to Chile in may, I'm thinking that May-June are the worst winter months here. And people who have lived in Russia or England have said that the cold here is different is so many ways. Because, first of all, the infrastructure of the houses and secondly because the "dry cold", both make them feel more unconfortable than in those countries.
So, considering that the house of the temple is very old, and the fresh air enter from different sides, I think that the best thing that you stay in our home again, Jaganatha, Baladeva, Subhadra, Carolina, Rasarani. And probably Parasurama, Pyari Mohan or Narotam and even myself like sevants.
This is because I would like to take days of my holidays for the visit also. Usually, I reserved to go to Peru or Argentina but if you come here is better for me use this days here.
Do you think that would be a good idea, dear guru maharaja?
Of course, is just a proposal. The house-ambient helps, in your last visit, to some devotees to have a kind of communication that some avoid in the temple.
Always in your service and Srila Prabhupada,
Jagad Guru DAS.
HpS - ASA -- AGTSP. Paoho. It is nice staying in your Ashrama because your family is nice, you have a nice library, building is nice (better heating), we can work on projects. The cold in the Temple has not been too bad for us in the past, but we do have an older body. It is nice to stay there to have/give association to the other devotees there. It is a B'cari ashrama.
Let us ask the Temple President what he thinks.
Our communication with Amara and Virabahu Das about administration in the Temple has been a little slow, partly because of Virabahu Das' health, and partly because we are Sannyasis so the preaching is more our job than the administration. It is a fact that ISKCON can and will go on first as an association of friends who make up an institution, so we can always cultivate our friendships and on that basis cultivate the institution. Of course, if we are friends, why we would not form an institution if it is possible.
We expect more talk with Virabahu et al during/after the GBC meetings in Mayapura.
When is the program with Universidad Catolica, Center for Aesthetics? May 1st? When should we come to Chile? Right now we are available between April 8 - May 20, but we have to plan for Argentina also. Could STRECTCH it to 25th May but that makes last days in Lima small.
Thank you. Respects to your daughter, wife, mother-in-law et al.
