"KDPC!" - news: Dr. Samaresh in wikipedia + ASA Chile instragram account

Hare Krishna dearest Maharaja!

Please, accept my respectful obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I really hope you are in good health at time you receive this message, or at least best as is possible.

HpS - See letter to Candramukhi Devi Dasi! 😎

I’m ok. My energy is not stable, some days energy is high, other days energy is down, but I still alive stuck in this material world, trying to do things right, trying to follow You and Srila Prabhupada, trying to do something to make Krishna look at me. I keep trying and I will still trying, because I’m flying upon wings of a bird called intent.

I’m writing to give some good news. Spanish version of Dr. Samaresh’s wikipedia biography was approved a few weeks ago. English version still under revision since almost 3 weeks ago; this is very good, when they rejected us before several times they did it almost immediately, so this is a good signal. Spanish version even have been edited by others wiki editors, so we are very happy. Wikipedia said that english version review may take 7 weeks or more. I send links with both versions to you. Please, Maharaja, take a look to the english draft, we are waiting for your comments and suggestions to improve it. After the English version is approved, I want to write on behalf of Nios and Hanumatpresaka Swami to the institutions where Dr. Samaresh participates and that we mention in the biography, as Sthapatyam Journal, University of Calcutta, Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland, and others, to let them know about the presence of Dr. Samaresh in wikipedia, we consider this will be a very important news for them; what do you think?

HpS - We will look!

HpS - It seem like a nice start. Thank you so much!!! He gave us more references. We wrote them down. I may be able to find them, but when! We have Latin American GBC meeting tomorrow. We have more rounds to chant before taking rest. It is 8.30PM and we have been up since 2.30AM (with naps and good food), but it is your great effort that has taken it this far and we will try to work on it ourselves more. Thank you.

The other subject I want to let you know is about your instagram chilean account. During 2018, and to promote “The Art & The Sacred”, we created “ASA Chile Producciones” instagram account (also another social networks). After the event, we never published again into no one of all these social networks accounts. So, this june 28th we started to publish again, we have changed the name and now is called “Anjana Suta Academy Chile”, you can find it this way in instagram: @anjana.suta.academy_chile  

What is Instagram???? Is it a kind of food for donkeys? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_cracker

Our work is very simple: I write and publish the contents, later I send every single post to your disciple Arjuna Das for his review. We are a good team, he is very nice partner. 

Our editorial line is diffusion of activities and philosophy of the Anjana Suta Academy and of its Director, the Vaishnava Spiritual Master Hanumatpresaka Swami.

We post 2 or 3 contents every day. Some informing about your next classes and online programs through Gotomeeting, Zoom, etc. Also some summaries of your recent past class. Besides, we got 2 permanent sections: “Drops of Wisdom” and “Drops of Poetry”, brief phrases verbatim based of your writings: twitter and Monkey Warrior Blog. We quote You and inviting the audience to follow you on twitter: “síguelo / follow him on twitter.com/huber_robinson”. Every post use spanglish language. We are using appropriate #hashtags to improve the visibility of each post.

We have slow interaction until now, we are just starting and learning how to do it better. Some new followers from different countries. An indian devotee from Kolkata writed us a Direct Message yesterday, saying that he met you during 2017 in Kolkata and remember you every day because you hold “Nectar of Instruction” into your heart, and you inspire him a lot. He asked for your english classes links and we sent to him Asa Audiovisual Youtube Channel link. I send screenshots of this and samples of the contents to you. This instagram work is turning so beautiful and inspiring. Please, Maharaja, check it out in the following link, and, please, let us know if you are agree with this and with the method we are handle it: 

https://www.instagram.com/anjana.suta.academy_chile/ 


Thank you so much for everything you do for us. My life is now better than ever before, and I know that it is only just because of your mercy and association... all glories to Srila Prabhupada!

HARE KRISHNA !!!

Your aspiring servant,

Carlos.

HpS - I think that our activities are not so important unless they lead people to KRSNA! Srila Prabhupada. About 75% of what we are doing should probably be 'Instantly' edited.

ASA as a team, yes.

NIOS as a product of the ASA work, yes.

Thank you!!!! Go on making progress in following Srila Prabhupada's basic program and you will become elevated and the Angels, Gopis, can start to catch your hand and pull you into the work/fun of Vraja even in this world!!!! Thank you. We send this link to the Professor!

ASA - AGTSP!!!! paoho....... About the same as you.

I am better now, I was very sick. Coronavirus attack me, very strong, but no so much. I think that i become sick for my offenses. I start an a fight with the new authorities because i considered that they were not doing well his work, but all this effort create in my hurt a desert and depression that open the door to the virus. My japa become without flavor, very sad situation. 

After of be in bed for 4 days and dont feel nothing with the holy name, i considered surrender to my new autorithie and beg for an apology, and i do. Then of that, my japa comes back, in that moment i realize very much things, but especially my problems with the autoriety, the inclination of be the lider, the controller, the judge. In the other hand i really see my most anhartas, pride, anger, intolerance, impatience, and so much dirt.

ASA - Most people think that they are all right! Don't even see the dirt!

For this situation and my bad action, i decide to leave the charge of temple commander, the new administration want that also. This was a very good experience, full of new goals and challenges. Thank you Gurudeva for give me that instruction.

Please accept my humble obeisances

KDPC - Invitation Universidad Católica de Chile international symposium - URGENT!

3 weeks, 6 days ago by Carlos Rold in Hot Topics, Calendar Development

Hare Krishna Maharaja !

PAMHO AGTSP AGTHPS

I hope you are in good health or best as is possible.

I’m writing by Arjuna Das' requirement, your disciple in charge of ASA and NIOS Chile.

Universidad Católica Aesthetics Institute has sent an invitation to you and NIOS to participate in an online congress they are organizing for october this year, with the same approach they were working with you et al. during 2019.

This year event its called “Colloquium: Nature and Sacrality, Human Stillness, Animal and Vegetal Action”

Your theme last year was “Bhagavat and the Ecology Light of Asia”

Will be a 4 days online symposium through ZOOM with audience, one time by week divided by subject matter every wednesday at 6 pm Chile time, 5 pm Nashville time:

October 7: Christianism 

October 14: Tribal and Indigenous Traditions 

October 21: The Asian Vision 

October 28: Action and Contingency


The final deadline date to deliver your theme and proposal its Friday july 24th. 

Arjuna Das is coordinating directly with organizers into UC, but he asked to me I write this “formal” summary to let you know and also your disciples, followers and well-wishers. 

There are the possibility that your disciple Abhirama Thakur Das and your Friend Héctor Bejar they also participate in this seminar. So, ABRTD has already been informed. He will send a letter to you in a few hours more about it.  

UC pretends to publicate all these colloquium dialogues into their Aesthesis Magazine special edition. 

I include an abstract of their invitation and also original file invitation pictures attached.

Thank you very much for everything you do for all of us.

Your aspiring servant,

Carlos.


Abstract:

The goal of this online meetings is to initiate an interreligious dialogue between the american indigenous, christian and asian world and people involved into ecological action, based on sacred space conception, protection of environment and interrelation of human beings with nature from the philosophical, religious and aesthetics diverse points of view.

Reducing CO2 emissions and confinement of humans seem to be a source of relief for biodiversity and reappropriation by animals of their environment, wondering us what would happen if this period were a turning points for humanity.

Problems that affect humanity today, such as global warming, climate change, loss of biodiversity, forest fires, among others, will still present and continue there after we emerge from the global health emergency this pandemic has caused.

It is a call to share knowledgement and reflections based on religious education experience, performance of rites, arts and cultures researching and about concrete actions of projects actually in development. Allow dialogue between various manifestations, providing society other ways of attending to and apprehending the return to innerself of being for external expansion of nature, appreciating the interrelation of dualities (feminine-masculine, natural-supernatural, sacred- profane, religious-secular), without taking any of them to extreme, but allowing harmonious balance.

HpS - AgtSP!!! Thank you so much for this effort. We got information of this symposium in another letter from ArtD and made an answer (https://monkeywarrior.com/detail/11348/) that we didn't understand the content of the symposium. Now with this Abstract it is more clear.

O.K. We can plan to participate. The following is a good title and summary of our article?

"Bhagavad-gita and a Cosmovision of the Web of Life"

Cutting the top off of a destructive weed does little to destroy its influence if the same weed will regrow quickly within a few days from an every enhanced root. The "Bhagavad-gita" and vast resources of the Sanskrit culture of ancient India, present a very penetrating view of our relation to celestial, human, subhuman and non-living matter, how they are energetically related and what is the fundamental motive of their relationship.

Once these broad structual and dynamic bases are clear, then working out the details of managing the ecology and resources becomes easy, like adjusting the position of painter's easel to take advantage of the sun's light.

My father is leaving his body

1 month ago by bhaktabigfoot in Hot Topics

Dear Guru Maharaja

Hare Krishna

PAMHO AGTSP AGTHPS

I am currently in Portland, Oregon.

My father has had cancer for sometime and its turned to the point it looks like he will be leaving his body very soon. He hasn't eaten anything really for about 2 weeks.

HpS - Yes, we heard from Sugopi-radha Devi Dasi this morning during the FMP that he did depart!

He wears a Tulsi necklace that he let me put on his neck a few weeks ago. I read BG Chapter 2 today to him. If I chant Maha Mantra to loud it disturbs him, he gets a head ache. That's been something since I been a devotee and he has heard HK/HR. So I chant quietly under my breath and when he is pretty out of it I chant louder. I also am putting Ganga water that has had Tulsi leaves in it in his water.

Over all it seems like a fairly honorable death. He has gotten to say his peace with family members....

In the middle of this letter my father has left his body now. I was chanting, my mother was chanting, most importantly Srila Prabhupada japa was playing, he had a leaf of Tulasi in his mouth before his last breath.

HpS - Wow! I am really humbled! So nice!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to Hanumat Preska Swami! All glories to the assembled devotees.

Yours,

Nanda-braja Das

HpS - Ask other devotees who are maybe more educated that us but as far as we know, this is a wonderful departure!

Srila Prabhupada said that it is like a close relative, father of some little girls, leaving from San Francisco in 1935 to go to work in China. Everyone is there saying "Good-bye", parents, wife, brother, in-laws, parents. There is an ocean of tears and smiles, but no one thinks that this is the end of him!

There will be letters.

Occasional screaming over the 10,000 miles of static filled phone calls, and in the end everyone will meet again with big reports and stories and gifts.

It is natural that we feel sad when a close family member goes, but it is with the above perspective!

When they go it is very important time. It is a big transition, no? They may be in-transit in the subtle atmosphere. Keep a picture. Chant with the picture there. After a ten(?) days have a festival and invite devotees to participate and offer Kirtan and first plate of Maha-prasadam to picture and describe departed family member and beg for well-wishes in the Kirtan.

Then it is very individual if we have more contact etc!

Send us photo for the Blog!

Standards for a devotee

1 month, 2 weeks ago by purushottam in Hot Topics

Hare Krishna, Respected, Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeiscances.

It is just amazing for me to see how you are so actively preaching in spite of your advanced age. Very inspiring for me.

HpS - ASA -- "even the old men of Mathurā became fully invigorated with youthful energy and strength by regularly seeing Him" (https://vedabase.io/en/library/kb/45/#bb91550 )

I was waiting for my report to be answered/published by you, the link is- https://monkeywarrior.com/reports/detail/169/

Just now saved another with link- https://monkeywarrior.com/detail/11239/

Now after so many days, some states have opened up the lockdown while others are still continuing. Most of the trains are not running, except for a few special trains. So, my engagements are sadhana and Gita Classes, study of Madhurya Kadambini in depth and the course of Academic writing. Cases of Corona are increasing day by day while most of the people are in uncertainty- of what next? Whether their Job will continue? Students are worried if at all any companies will visit college for campus selection? I am about- when will I start my next preaching venture. 

Just now I read the article - http://www.jayarama.us/peru/archivos/guru-tattva-es.txt

It was very comprehensive. I have a doubt. Srila Prabhupada gave very clear instructions regarding sex life- 'only for begetting good children within married life' in books. At the same time I know that ISKCON gurus do offer diksha to people who are far away from this position.

Mostly couples (even initiated) meet at least once a month. Also, during Srila Prabhupada times, I heard an incident where a devotee indulged with a prostitute in Mayapur because his wife was not ready for 'illicit sex' with him. Then Srila Prabhupada told that illicit sex within married life is not too sinful. Of course, I don't have any reference for it, since it is not available in Vedabase. I seriously doubt that if this rule is strictly applied, how many devotees would be eligible for diksha? What is situation of those who still are getting diksha?

Could you please clarify? I wonder if Srila Prabhupada was sure if his Grihastha disciples were actually following this rule strictly? I mean as they were coming from a different background. I find it difficult for people from a deeply cultural background. If you think it ok, please clarify.

HpS - ASA --- It is a broad topic to us and a narrow topic. In Srila Prabhupada's books it seems very simple, very direct, very precise. Every other thing is illicit, creates some material reaction!

Yet, I hear the same as you, that people are initiated and are accepted by their 'Gurus' as initiated disciples even though they are engaged in Avedic Stri Sangha.

I discuss it in the 'guru-tattva' file. Maybe some ISKCON Gurus are so powerful that they can carry married couples who are relating outside of strict Prabhupada standard, but Hansadutta told us that that was the real cause of his falldown, not 'I am the enjoyer', but 'I am the best friend', like Prabhupada. Bharata Maharaja fell for that vanity with the deer also, no?

Then, if people are posing in ISKCON, feeling supported by their 'Guru' as regular devotees, but are actually deeply conditioned by sensual attachment, then it created big confusion for us, others, about what is the comportment of an ISKCON devotee!

That is our current understanding of the situation.

In the article we point out that we cannot function as Diksa guru, but we can certainly function at Vartmana-pradarshika guru is the devotees want to get back on the path.

Your aspiring servant,

Purushottam Keshav Das

HpS - ASA --- Thank you for the news!!! Who is in the Ashrama with you?? Where is it geographically.

We chant that B. Caru Swami has good atmosphere on the subtle platform at this special moment.

Hare Krishna dear Maharaja!

AGTSP AGTHPS PAMHO

I hope you are as better as is possible... what about your allergy?

HpS - ASA -- It is a great honor to hear from you. AGTSP!!! Our energy is good. Our disease/old age is progressing is balance. Allergy really dropped to 1% when we took more control of our diet and started more exercise. Still, yes, for one, few, days it was FUERTE!!

How is Rodrigo's family.

We are seeing our visit to their Kiosko.

I'm fine, but with a laryngitis due to a sudden change of temperature I suffered on Monday by night for one hour approx (I'm no longer anymore that indestructible young man of 20 years ago); anyway, maybe I never be fine at all in my whole ambits of life, you know, material world, kali yuga, karmic reactions... but Krishna is so good with me, He is so nice... also as you are... my life is going better and better since I met you...

HpS - ..and ours since we met you! Hope we travel together for a long distance more! Where are we going??

I'm writing just to let you know that I keep trying everyday with wikipedia. They are the most demanding people I have ever met in my whole life (even more than my ex wife!), so much so that it is easier for me to follow the 4 regulative principles than satisfice wikipedia requirements!

HpS - Very interesting. We have lost the handle on our notes of suggested changes by Dr. Samaresha. The birth date is wrong for one thing. When you finish it we will let him know who did it! You will be able to see Srila Prabhupada's Calcutta! He used to play football against Bhakti-svarupa Damodara Swami when they were both in University of Calcutta. They didn't know that for many years and one day they suddenly realized it: So you are the Manipuri Rocket!! Oh, and you are the Bengali Crocodile!!!

I had to ask for help to a closely friend, he is a hacker and works in a very important enterprise of data security, digital safing [security?], etc. I try to not spend the whole day in front of the screen, pc or mobile phone, just because I don't like it at all, but I have to do it anyway. So, this friend has helped me a lot, and he can do it because his work is precisely spend all day and all night in front of the screen handling the mouse and the keyboard. He has creating wiki accounts with different IP addresses, and wiki police discover us always, they are really the best. We were forced to do this because they never unblock my wiki account, and they blocked the first wiki account that my friend created to upload the biography. Later, we upload the new text that you revised, and they rejected again this time because we were using calificative adjectives, they only want neutral texts, so, I rewrited the text and eliminate every single calificative adjective, and they rejected it again wihout a precise reason, but saying that they not knowing us like wiki editors. So, my friend is editing another wiki texts and, besides, it seems like is because there are no references from the books and the information we say about Professor Samaresh. I have spend time searching on the web, and only found 2 Amazon links, but we cannot publish this links in wikipedia, they don't promote commercial stuffs. I found just one link I think will serve.

https://www.amazon.com/Pracyaprajnapradipa-Professor-Samaresh-Bandyopadhyay-Felicitation/dp/B00WJ4SAIO 

https://www.amazon.com/Thoughts-Synthesis-Science-Religion-Singh/dp/8190136909

http://www.bibangalore.org/uploads/1/4/4/3/14433808/sep-oct_2018.pdf


So, please, I need more time, and also more info and references, but they are not available in the web. I have realized that Professor Samaresh ir really a living legend, because he is very famous among the world of scholars of indology, but he is such a mystery into the internet world. This is personal to me now, wikipedia won't beat me, I just want to post the bio. For the meantime, we will do another new try uploading the spanish text and later an english new one that I wrote a few a hours ago.

Thank you very much for the opportunity you give me to try to do something for you.

HpS - AGTSP. Rest a little and I will try to get more more references. Please keep reminding me!

Your aspiring servant,

Carlos Rold

HpS-ASA --- Your aspiring servant. Are you going to move to a village and grow potatoes, corn and beans with devotees? Karuna virus go away, come again another day!
