Hare Krsna!

AGTSP. paoho. We are doing pretty well, making advancement in controlling our senses..but Brother Ass, our body, has had very elevated, Pitta, fire, in the body for maybe two weeks now.

It was so bad that we could see that were a prime candidate for throat cancer, and really may have done lasting damage.

We tried different things, even heavy fasting, and that brought it down under control pretty much.

Then we lost control of our Donkey when he was confronted with apple pies and pasta on Thanksgiving day and it raged back up out of control again.

So, we are going into fasting until Sunday and taking Ayur vedic suggestion of doing mandatory menu of hot fennel tea six times a day as a basis and maybe expanding that with some potato/carrot soup in the afternoon.

     It seems that this is marking a change in our body and from here on in we are going to have to be very strict.

O ... We W I S H this wonderful Blog didn't automatically add an extra space after each Paragraph Return. We are in hell, and you??? (🙈Also).

We got basic Sadhana Bhakti. So much pain that we cannot server every one. Viplavah, Solari... es well as we should, but we have been 90% dead with very, very elevated Pitta the last few days.

Acid in the stomach, burning the throat... Sure candidate for throat cancer. Seems might be being tempted by the very nice Prasadam offered by the devotees here... but too much spices for us??

We have been fasting for three days and it has reduced a lot.

Hmmm..... Big life lesson! We have to live differently.

We spent about 1.25 hours answering letters.

We got in contact with our GBC Secretary, Sripad Vira-bahu Das, after about a month of no contact. He has been very busy and troubled in Braja. We had very practical discussion of administration in Chile, Latin America, Ayurveda etc.

About 1-1/2 hours with no waste.

We had only Tomato and Carrot soup Prasada today.

Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna!!!!! Then at 5PM (Now it is 4.30PM) we-will-go to walking with NgD and Vijaya Ji! It is only human contact we have all way and chance to exercise.

Thank you!!! May all you Sankirtan be loud and funny!!

See you in hell tomorrow.

AGTSP..... paoho.. TB/BW!!! It is getting dark. It is depressing! We are alone in our little dilapidated house.. 😀 Yet we have the Maha-mantra!

Our headache has gradually built up.

We have answered as many letters as we can.

We have been good beasts today!

Honoring Prasadam. Chanting our rounds. Three classes today.

Now we join the program with Argentina. We really can't do these things like we plan with our civilized, passionate, mind. We really have to surrender to Krsna, and pray for inspiration, then we fine so many nice things to discuss.

Hare Krsna.

AgtSP//// paoho//// We have had an empty heart all day. In the morning it was so pronounced we could not even join the SB class. We had to just lie still and chant and try to hold on to Srila Prabhupada's lotus feet to keep from floating off into the sky.

Of course, we can take shelter of the stimulus of things like our bicycle or favorite smells, but these won't last if they have not deep connection.

It was like Dhrtarastra, Duryodhana et al who were thriving on misdeeds only, and their final destruction was inevitably coming.

Also, it seems to be that today is the anniversary of Srila Prabhupada's disappearance. It really drains our energy, no?

We actually only have energy to act, in the Sankirtan movement, from Krsna.

Hari bolo.
