Friday/16

Hare Krsna Muchachos y Muchichas,
AgtSP    Paoho    Here we are in Mar de Plata still.   It is 1.30PM on Friday.   We just finished catching up on our Letters to the Editator.  Such powerful news from book distributors!
We had SB class this morning. Super intense questions.
Then we had our BhVai meeting with Peru.  First one for the New Year.
Next, 2.30PM we have our SB class with ISKCON Hawaii.  Our Godbrothers, Maybe Harsh!
Then we should do our TPP-Canto3 work.  Our Chapter Study Guides.
Then 6-9PM is the last day of these Interfaith Dialogs.   They have been so wonderful.  This is the second year and people are so enthusiastic.   The location is 6-times better.  Every seat is full. We got some press coverage and the lady who organizes interfaith work for the Arch Diocis of Mar de Plata was in the audience.    The public and discussions amogst the participants has been wonderful.  We are learning a lot about Jewish, Muslim, Sufi, Catholic Dogmas and really humbled by the sincerity that other people have.

Yes, Brother Ass is feeling little bit of chest pain again.
(Duh!   Big surprise, Yeah?)   So we try to be relaxed and let the demands fufill them selves.

Devotees, Pancha-tattva, Nicasio, everyone, helping so, so much.

Bhakta rupa says he will send the news of the BhVai Diploma Center applications soon.   No news from Dr. Messier or Rabbirami about September program in Tennessee, so really think that it will not be happening on the Campus this year. Obvious thing is to then turn our attention to internal program on the Holy Names.

Tried 11-times to call Manipur yesterday, but no conneccion with three different numbers. Still trying, but probably will buy the Inland Tickets - Delhi, Manipur, Kolkatta - to get a good price and hope that the dates we chose work.

O.K.   Back to work!!

NitayGouraPremanande!!!

querido y siempre recordado Gurudev,

TODAS LAS GLORIAS A SRILA PRABHUPADA!!!

                                           disculpe en mi carta anterior no puse mi nombre al final de ella para que ud. pueda identificarla, voy a tratar de repetir lo que puse en esa carta:

                                            regresamos de un MahaSankirtam en ofrenda al Señor Gouranga, de la ciudad de Puebla, m. Veronika dió:  156 libros chicos, 2 BG y 1 viaje al autoconocimiento, m. Jambavati dió: 110 libros chicos y 2 BG, muy extáticas!!  apesar del fuerte calor, por su infinita misericordia querido Gurudev puedo tener la oportunidad de ser un instrumento  de entusiasmo y apoyo a devotas nuevas quienes comienzan a entrenarse en la distribución de libros a tiempo completo, en la Marathón pasada de Diciembre me tocó servir a B. Atenea quien tiene la cualidad de saber escuchar, ella se desenvolvió imparable durante los 15 dias que participó, poniendo mucha entrega y concentración!!! .... en esta vez B. Veronika tambien prestando mucha atención a los consejos en la distribución de libros, ella misma estaba sorprendida, pudo superar el trauma  de estar en avenidas repletas de autos, no se imaginó jamás, distribuir libros en los Semaforos.....pero, su deseo fue muy grande y lo hizo!!! ......actualmente, estoy con un problema de deficiencia renal, el riñon derecho no esta trabajando bien, pero eso no me desanima,.....el cuerpo se va envejeciendo y ya no responde bien, no puedo hacer mucho esfuerzo fisico, pero, si puedo utilizar el ingenio para continuar con el Servicio a mi amado GuruMaharaja, en mi meditación veo a Srila Prabhupada y le digo: " Gracias por permitirme participar en tu fiesta, apesar de no merecerlo, tú eres Patita Pavana".........gracias querido Gurudeva que me da la oportunidad de poder servir a las devotas nuevas en el intento de contagiar el entusiasmo y el deseo tan grande que llevo en mi corazón: " de que la distribución de Libros sea para toda la vida".......mi felicidad es ver los resultados de ellas, es ver sus rostros cansados y sonrientes de haber dado tantos libros!!!........por otro lado, la doctora M. Catamay d.d. de Puebla, ella recibe una misericiordia muy especial pues, por sus ocupaciones no puede asistir al Templo de Sri Sri Radha Madana Gopal, pero, siempre está recibiendo la visita de los devotos Sankirtaneros, a quienes les brinda su apoyo y facilidades para que hagan su servicio de la mejor manera,....en ésta ultima vez, ella me pidió que le dijera que quiere dar una donación a NIOS  y como lo puede hacer?.......querido GuruMaharaja, lo extraño mucho, y en separación continuo en el servicio a sus divinos Pies de Loto!!!

                                                                                                    Radhe,Radhe,Radhe....

su inútil y torpe sirvienta

m. Jambavati d.d. 

HpS - ASA -  Jaya!   Super bien.  Pienso que los devotos son mas atentos a sus cuerpos que los Karmis, por que quiee utilizarlos escrupulosamente para Krsna.  La ultima gota de esfuerza que existe.    No hay noticias de Maitreya Prabhu acerca de el tratamiento de su mandibula.   Voy a escribir a el y Aravinda Prabhu. Dejo la bibliografia con Oscar de sus humildes experiencias en Sankirtana y vamos a hablar con el despues de volver a Peru despues de 12 dias.

Claro, no hay mejor noticias, occupacion, que, de, su reportaje. Cada libro da la luz a cuantas personas!

DTC WE/14

Hare Krsna, Prabhus,
AgtSP     paoho & bw       Here we are in Mar de Plata.  It's on the East coast of Argentina, the Atlantic Ocean.   If you go exactly East from here you will pass south of Africa!    We have Interfaith Dialogs tonight and tommorrow nights. This is the second year and the other participants are very nice people. We really hope we can get something out of it. We are going to give them the Teachings of Lord Caitanya as gifts.

Health is O.K.  Dying a useful death.

Hear is a letter that HpS's sister sent him:

Little Boy's Explanation of God - Fabulous!!!

Out of the mouths of Babes--

"And a Little Child Shall Lead them"

(I certainly don't think an adult could explain this more beautifully!)

It was written by an 8-year-old named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula Vista , CA . He wrote it for his third grade homework assignment, to 'explain God.' I wonder if any of us could have done as well ?

(And he had such an assignment, in California , and someone published it...I guess miracles do happen!)

EXPLANATION OF GOD: 'One of God's main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth. He doesn't make grownups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That way he doesn't have to take up his valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that to mothers and fathers.'

'God's second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside bedtime. God doesn't have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this. Because he hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in his ears, unless he has thought of a way to turn it off.'

'God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn't go wasting his time by going over your mom and dad's head asking for something they said you couldn't have.'

'Atheists are people who don't believe in God. I don't think there are any in Chula Vista . At least there aren't any who come to our church.'

'Jesus is God's Son. He used to do all the hard work, like walking on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people who didn't want to learn about God. They finally got tired of him preaching to them and they crucified him. But he was good and kind, like his father, and he told his father that they didn't know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K.'

'His dad (God) appreciated everything that he had done and all his hard work on earth so he told him he didn't have to go out on the road anymore. He could stay in heaven. So he did. And now he helps his dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones he can take care of himself without having to bother God. Like a secretary, only more important.'

'You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time.'

'You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there's anybody you want to make happy, it's God!

Don't skip church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach. This is wrong. And besides the sun doesn't come out at the beach until noon anyway.'

'If you don't believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can't go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He's around you when you're scared, in the dark or when you can't swim and you get thrown into real deep water by big kids.'

'But...you shouldn't just always think of what God can do for you. I figure God put me here and he can take me back anytime he pleases.

And...that's why I believe in God.'

(If you believe in God, please pass this on, and may God bless you too.)

Have an awesome day, and know that someone has thought about you!
