Hare Krsna Respected Guru Maharaj,
Please accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
All glories to Guru parampara.
Guru Dev, As per your letter on 04th October 2012, you will be in Mayapur after 18 Feb 2013.
It will be nice, if you share your India schedule with us so that I will be able to book my tickets and accommodation arrangements!!
HpS - ASA - Girivaradhari-Gopal!!!! (DAS) I have sent a copy to you of the India Calendar Development letter that we just sent 2-hours ago. I will include a copy here, now! We hope your Sankirtana effort a your place of work is advancing so that you can also teach others how to do it! We hope to see your ecstatic smiling face in just a few weeks!
Jaya Sri Krsna!
Esteemed Professor Samaresh Bandyopadhyay, Raktaka and Madhu-manjari Devi Dasas, Yamunesvara and Yugala kishor Das,
We hope this meets your well. We are in Arrequipa (Hari-krpa), Peru for the weekend. It is rather high and we and Patraka Das are a little dizzy. We leave for a very nice Art University in just a few moments for a program on Vedic Ideal of Art.
1) ITENARARY: We HAVE our ticket for India. We arrive in Kolkatta 5.30AM, 19 February.
Then we are 90% committed to attend an "ISKCON Guru, Sannyasi, Governing Body Secretary Sanga" 26 February to 2nd March.
After that, per the suggestion of Yamunesvara Das, we could go to Manipur on Monday, 4th March.
Then we could return to Kolkata and continue straight to Australia on the 24th or 25th.
This would mean we spend three weeks working in Manipur and then Gaura-purnima in Australia. Yamuna suggests returning to Mayapura with them, but it seems too difficult.
Then we could spend four weeks in Australia, 25th March - 22 April and then another week in India, Kolkata, before we return to the West.
What do your good selves think of this. Professor, is it enough time in Kolkatta?
Raktaka, Madhum. et al... The problem is that we have an Indian Visa that is Entry "MULTIPLE", Type "T", ... and from what I understand, if we leave to go to Australia we won't be able to re-enter India for three months. Of course this is impossible because we want to come back within one month. Nitai-gaurasundara Das suggests that you go to the Indian Embassy in Australia and explain what you are trying to do and then get approval from them for us to re-enter on the specficied dates. He says that it is not diffcult.
In general, we leave it to you in Manipur and Australia to make the plans and arrangements for the tickets and Visas.
In Australia we suggest that we can organize a "International Symposium on Cultivation of the Human Spirit". Professor Bandyopadhyay and I can of course participate, but local people, indigineous people can also contribute. One section can be, "Cultivation of the Human Spirit, Light of the Bhagavata", another, "The Contribution of Ancient Indian Culture Toward Making a Better World".
You should form an Organizing Committee. Have a Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. Get ISKCON involved and communicate with us in the Blog! Jaya Sri Krsna!
This is our million dollar letter. Now we wait for your 2-million dollar answers.
Your fallen servant,
HpSwami (Prof. H. H. Robinson)
