Hare Krsna beloved Gurudeva AGTSP PAMHO


Gurudeva, I am writing regarding your long distance travels. In my humble opinion You shouldn't travel long distances anymore. This may affect your ears, heart and increase your vertigo. You have traveled for many years to many countries. It is our time now to make the effort and visit You.


Better for You may be staying in Nashville


Thank You Gurudeva for all your effort through all these years


Trying to be your disciple

HpS - Thank you, CMDD. Our regards to your Sister and family. What are they doing?

If we do go to Spain or Radha-kunda it will be will due diligence for Brother Ass's condition.

Business class allows for a bed and priority boarding. Then an attendant.

Yet like you say.

Evaluate the impact on the donkey.


"This material world is like a stool room. A gentleman does his business and gets out", Srila Bh. Siddhanta Sarasvati Thakura.

Have you finished your business?

Every day we are here KRSNA is lacking our unique service in the spiritual world.

We are like peppermint.

As long as we are in the material world Radha has no peppermint to use in Her cooking!


Of course, if KRSNA wants us here then this is OUR BUSINESS.

Hare Krishna Guru Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances,

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!


Here are some photos of your awesome Vyasa Puja!


I'm really happy that I had a chance to make an offering "in person".

The sad-Goswami-astaka was amazing, Nitisara Prabhu's song was great, and of course all the offerings.


My favorite was the Spanish offerings, they are all so creative and happy!! It's very inspiring.


I liked the Radha Kunda theme too.

I hope one day the air clears up.


I'm so grateful to you, thanks for everything!!

HpS - Thank you! We hope you keep your priority in making practical progress in escaping from the material casing. Ashrama, style of Sankirtan, personal relations, bodily and mental demands should all be adjusted to reach this first goal, no?

Pran-Pratishtha (Inauguration) Ceremony of Lord Ramachandra Temple in Ayodhya after a wait of 500 years

3 weeks, 4 days ago by Govinda Sundara in Hot Topics

The inauguration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya marks a historic moment in the religious and cultural tapestry of India. The temple, dedicated to Lord Ram, has a rich history rooted in the ancient epic, Ramayana.


The dispute over the site dates back several centuries, with tension escalating in the modern era. The Babri Masjid, built in the 16th century, became a focal point of contention as some believed it was constructed on the ruins of a temple that marked the birthplace of Lord Ram.


The dispute reached its peak in 1992 when the Babri Masjid was demolished by a group of activists, leading to widespread communal tensions. Legal battles ensued, and the case eventually reached the Supreme Court of India. In a landmark judgment in 2019, the court paved the way for the construction of the Ram Temple, acknowledging the historical and cultural significance of the site for Hindus.


The groundbreaking ceremony took place in August 2020, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi laying the foundation stone for the temple. The construction process was carried out with meticulous attention to detail, incorporating traditional architectural styles and techniques.


After a wait of 500 Years, the grand inauguration ceremony took place on January 22nd, 2023 marking the completion of this monumental project, attended by dignitaries and devotees from across the nation.


ISKCON joined in the global celebration of the honor given to Lord Sri Rama on Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi Temple for the installation of the Ram Lala deity.


ISKCON temples in India will participate in a special month-long celebration in Ayodhya,

During the celebration, ISKCON plans to feed 10,000 pilgrims daily, and hold festivals

promoting the chanting of Hare Krishna mahamantra. ISKCON will also set up a medical camp and distribute large quantities of Srila Prabhupada Books.


Many of ISKCON’s 800 temple communities around the world also participated in the

festivities in various ways—from live telecasts of the Ayodhya inauguration, offerings of sacred lamps, special worship services, extended kirtan ceremonies, and other events.


“Ramayana” written by the sage Valmiki, contains nearly 24,000 verses. The Ramayana epic is revered in cultures around the world---including Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Philippines, and more—and celebrated through traditional and contemporary art, dance, drama, music.

“We hope that this inaugural festival marking the legacy of Sri Rama and His teachings on dharma, righteousness, spiritual truth, and morality will inspire people around the world to practice selfless, compassionate acts for the benefit of all people and our entire planet,” said Anuttama Dasa, Minister of ISKCON Communications.


Some of the gifts given by devotees to Lord Ram in this grand celebration were:

*600 Kgs of Ghee from Rajasthan.

*The temple construction materials were brought from all over India.

*108-foot-long incense that was lit for the ceremony that came from devotees in Gujarat.

*Multiple helicopters showered flowers during the Pran-pratistha Muhurta which lasted 84 seconds.

*The world's Largest Lamp 300 feet in diameter made with 1008 tons of clay and 21,000 liters of oil was lit.

*And many other opulent offerings.

Harinam Initiation for this bhakta/ Iniciación Harinam para este bhakta

3 weeks, 4 days ago by guimo in Hot Topics

Hare Krishna. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada. Please accept my obeisances dearmost Gurudeva, all the glories to the devotees!


This is bhakta Guimo, Guna Vira Das, which Initiation Ceremony was on Sunday 14th January on:

“Makara-saṅkrānti [the day when the sun begins to move north]” as stated on SB 7.14.20-23.

You can see a humble video here: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=pfbid02aMwnbrNgbTAYModzPzKSnFH6kdRXmqVfs2tb9kHerR6xPk9AAcxc3AjeqPahFA7sl&id=100063970476616&sfnsn=scwspwa&mibextid=VhDh1V


Guru Maharaja informed us that this holy name means:

“Servant of the husband of the sister of the grandfather of KRSNA”.

And later He allowed this servant to research about that illustrious personality. I searched on the Bhaktivedanta VedaBase 2003 software, as well as the online version. Also, on vanipedia.org and on: names.iskcondesiretree.com and finally asked beloved and saavy Harilila Das Prabhú in order to verify the sources.


Currently, we know pretty much the same, just expanding the names… That Gunavira Maharaja is the husband of the sister (Mother Suverjana) of the father (Parjanya Maharaja) of the father (Nanda Maharaja) of Sri KRSNA. Both Gunavira and Suverjana, the expert hdancer, resi

e(d?) at Surya-kunda.


Life perspective starts to flourish!

At Your service and of all the devotees!


HpS - Thank you!

We just updated our list on the webpage to include your initiation: https://jayarama.us/kd/guru-tattva.txt

Hare Krishna. Todas las Glorias a Srila Prabhupada. ¡Por favor acepte mis reverencias, querido Gurudeva, todas las glorias a los devotos!


Este es bhakta Guimo, Guna Vira Das, cuya ceremonia de iniciación tuvo lugar el domingo 14 de enero en:


“Makara-saṅkrānti [el día en que el sol comienza a moverse hacia el norte]”, como se indica en SB 7.14.20-23.

Se puede ver un sencillo video aquí: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=pfbid02aMwnbrNgbTAYModzPzKSnFH6kdRXmqVfs2tb9kHerR6xPk9AAcxc3AjeqPahFA7sl&id=100063970476616&sfnsn=scwspwa&mibextid=VhDh1V


¡La perspectiva de vida comienza a florecer!


Guru Maharaja nos informó que este santo nombre significa: “Siervo del marido de la hermana del abuelo de KRSNA”.


Y luego Él permitió que este siervo investigara sobre aquella ilustre personalidad. Busqué en el software Bhaktivedanta VedaBase 2003, así como en la versión en línea. También en vanipedia.org y en: names.iskcondesiretree.com y finalmente le pregunté al querido y sabio Harilila Das Prabhú para verificar las fuentes.


Actualmente, sabemos más o menos lo mismo, sólo ampliando los nombres… Que Gunavira Maharaja es el esposo de la hermana (Madre Suverjana) del padre (Parjanya Maharaja) del padre (Nanda Maharaja) de Sri KRSNA. Tanto Gunavira como Suverjana, la bailarina experta, residen(¿residían?) en Surya-kunda.


¡La perspectiva de vida comienza a florecer!


¡A Su servicio y el de los/las devotos/as!

Mother Kunti's offering

1 month ago by i8themaha in Hot Topics

Hare Krishna Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.


Mother Kunti from Radha Kalachandji dhama requested that I share her offering to you here in the Blog.


His Holiness Hanumat Presaka Maharaja illuminates anyone who hears his classes.

His presence is as brilliant as the Sun.

His fierce intellect drives away the ignorance in our hearts and helps us make room for the Supreme Personality of Godhead in a most powerful and beautiful way.

Today is the most blessed event of his Holy Appearance.

Quoting Srila Prabhupada’s offering to his beloved Gurudeva:

“Adore adore ye all this day. Blessed than heaven, sweeter than May”…

Let’s join prayers together today and every day to beg His Holiness Hanumat Presaka Maharaja to please give us a tiny drop of his great mercy to re dedicate ourselves to the mission of ISKCON with patience, enthusiasm and determination remembering his fully surrendered example.

Servant of your servant,

Mother Kunti (TKG) and family, ISKCON Dallas


HpS - AgtSP. Mataji, you know. 99%+++ of what we accomplish is because we are joining the fight from behind Srila Prabhupada's lotus feet. Otherwise, what to speak of not doing anything, we would have again joined The Black Witch's enjoyments.

😥

Thank you.

Hope to see you in Nabadvipa with Nimai soon.
