Dear Maharaj,

Hare Krishna. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

On behalf of ISKCON Slovenia I'd like to cordially invite you to visit us on your next European journey. Some of us here are great fans of your preaching. Our only dissatisfaction is that there are not many of your English classes available online. 🤗

We study Srimad Bhagavatam with VIHE teacher and are on the 11th Canto now. We'd be glad if you'd deliver some of your courses in our yatra. I personally enjoyed a lot your interview with Krishna Kshetra Maharaj for his "Time of the Sages" documentary.

Although Slovenian yatra is small we are an active temple. Slovenia has 2 million inhabitants, and Ljubljana, its capital, houses roughly 300,000 people. We nevertheless get an association of cca 20 disciples of Srila Prbahupada annually. We are connected with the neighboring Croatian yatra and "share" visiting preachers. Our two capitals are only 90 minutes car ride. We are about 500 kms away from Prague, Czech Republic, which is less than 90 minutes direct flight.

Also, which kind of preaching would you like to do to the "outsiders"? And which topical classes or seminars do you deliver? Do you maybe have a list?

Thank you very much for considering to visit us. We hope to be able to have your association and hear you lecture. Attached is the photo of our Lords - Sri Panca Tattva.

Your servant,

Radhe Govinda dasa

HpS - Sounds very, very nice. We could organize a good series of SB presentations, teacher training and do programs for C. G. Jung and the Bhagavata, Hamlet and Arjuna, Science and Vedanta, 3-minutes with A Genius (Upadesmanrta) etc.

Please read our Kapi Dhvaja in the web page and make comments. It comes our each two weeks.

Dear Maharaj,

Hare Krishna


Thank you so much for the reply Maharaj.

For the Festival next year I will look into how to incorporate the four regulative principles and 16 rounds. Also Japa. These are of course a top priority in Srila Prabhupada's process and we should find away to include them in the festival. Thank you for this Maharaj.

Yes, Maharaj. The mercy from Krsna and Srila Prabhupada by following the process is very kind. I can see I am making some progress. I thank you for the encouragement to do so. I thank you and Srila Prabhupada for this mercy. Please bless me that I may chant my rounds with more attention in hopes to please Krishna.

Maharaj, As far as initiation. I am a little perplexed. I have been given some different advice and would like to know from you what you would like me to do. Anatarupa Prabhu and few others have suggested going to Huston as I shouldn't hesitate for such an auspicious occasion. However, I have also been encouraged to wait until your visit to Boise in January / February. Thus my family can attend including my mother. Also my friends here in Boise could attend. Please advise me on what you think is best and what I should do. I will do that.

HpS - Boise!

Maharaj, Would it be appropriate now to address you as Guru? Also should I be using your Pranama mantra? Please advise me.

HpS - Pranav mantra is fine now. If you see me as representative of Srila Prabhupada as our Guru then I think gurudeva is tasteful.

All glories to the Sankirtan movement!

we Para informarle que organizamos una propuesta entre varios hermanos espirituales, que sería la base para una reunión.

Feliz llegada a México. ¡Todas las glorias a Srila Prabupada!

Dear Guru Maharaja:

Please accept my respectful obeisances.

To inform you that we organize a proposal among several spiritual brothers, which would be the basis for a meeting.

Happy arrival to Mexico. All glories to Srila Prabupada!

HpS - AgtSP. Paoho. Yes we got it. We also had the nice meeting yesterday with the Psychologist! When can we meet? We were thinking during the retreat in Cuernavaca and also before the Sunday festival. One basic principle is separating the functions of Diksa guru from our Sankirtan work.

Mataji Adi-lila (from Slovenia / Peru) told me to contact you if we want to invite HH Hanumatpresak Maharaj to visit us in Slovenia next time he comes to Europe.

So how do we do this ? :)

Questions and answers



Abstract of Marina´s Presentation

Mexican steam bath known as temazcalli, comes from the Nahua voice root: tema which means bathing and calli, "bath house", it is currently known as temazcal and is considered the most important element of traditional medicine. Chroniclers of the Mexican colonial period described the form and use of these bath houses and their health benefits, especially during and after childbirth. Although there are no explicit records about its symbolism, but it is known from historical sources, within the temazcal, ancient religious practices were carried on. Another cause, by which the temazcal bath was not well seen by the Spanish friars, was because they considered a sinful fact that men and women bathe together, as it was the custom. Due to the constant regulations, by which the temazcal was through, and the severe punishments to which they were taken, Mexicans had to implement new ways that did not alter the ritual life of this practice, so they thought of putting a boy into the bathroom if the person who was going to take the bath was a woman; or, vice versa a girl if he was a boy, and in this way avoid the dual presence as it was preset. It is worth mentioning that this ritual was a watched practice by the evangelizers and naturally they warned any attempt at simulation until demonizing this tradition.

Keywords: Temazcal, bathhouse, postpartum therapy, sacred ritual, oral tradition, memory of culture.


Abstract of Mtra. Itzel Barrera

The 21st century has been characterized as convulsed, violent, and uncertain. Much of that violence, especially after the fall of the twin towers in 2001, has been attributed to religious extremists. This circumstance would not be different from any stage of humanity, except for the fact that religious extremisms, in addition to territorial disputes, are presented today as one of the leading explanatory causes of the origin of international chaos. The latter results in an unavoidable (but ultimately wrong) understanding of otherness as the origin of the conflict.

At first, there will be a brief historical account of the contributions of the sacred conceptions to the dynamics of government that preceded the modern state. In a second moment, we will describe how religious hierarchy, as the crystallization of the political interests of the elite and their conflicts, lead to the Machiavellian need to separate the religious from the political in a Eurocentric and modern environment that expands as a result of an acculturating colonizing process. In a third moment, we will explore how the Eurocentric model of political modernity antagonizes community practices of pre-national government and promotes the placement of politics in the field of efficiency, far from its Aristotelian origin of providing citizens with a fair life. Finally, it will be explained how the dialogue of the manifestations of the sacred is what can genuinely remedy religious extremisms since these have their origin in the lack of empathy and, therefore, cannot be solved by purely political processes.

Keywords: sacred, religion, international dialogue, conflict, peace, lebenswelt.

I hope Krsna keeps you in good health, see you soon

Your useless servant, more monkey than warrior

Thank you! Guess you will need phrase translation, since simultaneous is very true expensive.
