RENACIMIENTO DE NUESTRO YATRA CON NUEVOS VALORES

2 months ago by YugalaKD in Hot Topics

HK PAMHO

Me alegra que pronto lo tendremos entre nosotros, sus hijos. Lo que voy a decir es con la mejor de las intenciones, sin espíritu de crítica destructiva, o politiquería, sólo deseo expresar la verdad.

Tengo una gran preocupación por la gerontocracia que impera desde décadas en ISKCON-PERÚ, al inicio, cuando conocí el movimiento pensaba que no había tendencia de ksatryas, con el tiempo comprendí, que siempre los hay, y pueden aportar mucho, si se les permite. Me preocupa que toda una generación, la mía, observemos con desaliento como muchos jóvenes educados, con grandes habilidades probadas a lo largo del tiempo y constancia de servicio a todo terreno, no puedan dirigir templos, Junta Nacional, etc. Por el apego de los mayores, de no dejar a las nuevas generaciones, liderar.

Hace poco comprendí que alguien que lidera un grupo humano debe ser un educador. El líder delega e inspira a otros a realizar vida espiritual. Si van a ver cambios en Perú pido, suplico, que vean la posibilidad de dar oportunidad a jóvenes educados y responsables, para que tengan su realización de mejorar nuestro yatra, por supuesto bajo la dirección de un consejo brahmínico como Ud. y otras personas intachables y experimentadas. Que tenga como prioridad la prédica, el factor humano y preparación de las siguientes generaciones. Por favor confiemos y apostemos por la generación activa en servicio, que hace tiempo debieron ascender a cabezas de nuestro yatra.

Algo que observo en las generaciones pasadas es maltrato, hubo mucho maltrato en el pasado y es por ello, muchos no se sienten a gusto con algunos devotos antiguos. Y esa atmósfera aleja a los personas y posibles nuevos devotos.

Por favor interceda para que el GBC, trabaje con las nuevas generaciones de devotos educados, que con toda su vitalidad y compasión podrán atraer a más jóvenes. Deseo ver un cambio en el Yatra, y eso sólo será posible si se delegan responsabilidades a nuevos valores.

Espero un renacimiento, posiblemente, se pueda organizar grupos que escuchen a los devotos con liderazgo y fijos en servicio. Y se traspase la administración a ellos. Y se invierta en entrenamiento para que cumplan su labor: conociendo la importancia de preservar las propiedades del movimiento, el tema económico, la formación en el sastra y servicios. Todo esto es posible.

 Todos los reyes de la cultura védica se desentendían de sus reinos oportunamente y entronaban a las nuevas generaciones.

De corazón apreciamos el servicio de nuestras autoridades, pese a todo, sin embargo, hay toda una generación que merece ser escuchada y atendida en sus necesidades, de forma urgente.

Tratando de servir Su hija comunicadora social que lo adora:

Yugala Kishora Dasi.

 ============================

Gracias por tu carta, Yugala-kishore Devi Dasi.

Utilizamos Translate.google.com y usted escribió de tal forma que el robot pudo entender el 90% de su carta. Gracias.

Creo que su carta bienintencionada, expresar su opinión, es un buen paso hacia el futuro. El cambio comienza conmigo, contigo, y has hecho eso.

Ya estoy tratando de trabajar con el Oficial de Educación, los Presidentes de los Templos, los Consejos de los Templos, el Consejo Nacional, el Supervisor de Zonas, la GBC Regional de América Latina, el Ministerio de Educación, el Secretario de Zonas, y su carta nos da entusiasmo e inteligencia para avanzar en este aspecto.

Tengo muchas faltas. Espero que la gente me ayude con ellos.

Creo que, desde mi perspectiva, los devotos convertiendan a pioneros en renunciar a las posiciones adminstracion en ISKCON, y desarrollando como Sannyasa, Viuda civil, son importantes. Estoy de acuerdo en que el desarrollo de una cultura de educación en ISKCON es esencial para que los administradores tengan la opción de renunciar a la administración. Espero que podamos discutirlo más en Perú en unas pocas semanas cuando estemos allí.

Wow Espanyol!

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura Eating Meat

2 months, 1 week ago by Dhruvānanda DAS in Hot Topics

Dear Maharaja,

please accept our humble obeisances.

All glories to your service.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I was hoping to hear what are your thoughts/knowledge regarding the claim that Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura ate fish and goat until he received diksha from HH Bipin Bihari at the age of 42 (I’m recalling that number from memory). 

Here are two quotes from his alleged autobiography sent to his son, Lalita Prasada.

“At that time I used to eat a lot of fish and meat. I had known that killing animals was bad for a long time, but I still had a strong desire to enjoy fish and meat. Chapra had very large fish, but I did not like them. So I ate more mutton. After prolonged eating of food of this kind combined with red chillies and mustard pickle, I developed a bleeding ulcer...

“...While I was living in Narail I took diksha along with my wife. I had been searching for a suitable guru for a long time but without success. I was very unhappy on that account. It seemed that if I had faith in anyone, upon examining his philosophical ideas and character, I would lose that little bit of faith. I had done much anxious thinking, but the Lord erased my unhappiness by appearing to me in a dream. In the dream I got some indication of what was to happen and when morning came, I felt joyful. One or two days later Gurudeva wrote to me saying, "I will come soon and give you initiation." When Gurudeva came and performed the initiation rituals, it made me very cheerful. From that very day the sinful desire for eating meat was removed from my heart and I began to feel some compassion towards all living beings.”

I first came across this when reading Hindu Encounter with Modernity by Shukavak Das. For me, reading that book and witnessing Thakura Bhaktivinoda's humility and example through his journey, was a great inspiration for me. I could see how sometimes it appears that a pure devotee, what to speak of little devotees, is entangled in the material world. But really there is a greater lesson being shown or needing to be learnt (for us), and we should never be disheartened, wallowing in the mental sense gratification of guilt and hopelessness, from our own current lack of qualification or standard. And this is coming from myself, who was born and remained vegetarian my whole life.

I read Shulavak’s book about two years ago and it was a part of a great surcharge in my enthusiasm and determination in Krishna consciousness. I started this blog, podcast and YouTube channel with the title “Essence Seeker” all from Bhaktivinoda’s instruction to be saragrahis. He set the example of how to actively find and please Krishna across cultures; regardless of one’s material circumstances. 

As I share my thoughts with devotees, and observe others passing this particular topic around, I sometimes see that some devotees become greatly disturbed hearing that a pure devotee participated in eating animal flesh, even when he was aware of proper conduct. Some claim that the letter to Lalitā Prasad is inauthentic. Even there is suspicion of political strategy being mentioned; with Lalitā Prasad also being an acharya of a line in direct “competition” to Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura. 

So I was hoping to get your thoughts on this topic, if you have any, please Maharaja. 

From last letter: I filmed the “Origin of the Jiva” video myself with my smart phone. It’s incredible what we can do with this devices today. Mystic sidhis!

I have attached some images. Two are of myself and my eldest daughter meditating in the forest. One is of our Thakuraji at home, and one is of my daughter starting gurukula. I tried to send the image of Suryani starting gurukula with the last letter I sent but it did not make it through. (Actually I have tried several times but it looks like they haven't made it through). Maybe another time.

HpS - Hare Krsna. It is so, so nice to hear from you. I am sorry that we could not answer letters while traveling. Sitting here in Tennessee it is a challenge because now, although, we do not have 33-interviews a day, we don't have the regulated association of Temple life that we have while traveling. All in all we are making progress in both environments. Thank you so much for the letter. So much!

I don't know much about Bh. V. Th. eating meat. Of course, Srila Prabhupada does not mention it. Also, he does not mention Lalita-prasad Ji to my knowledge either. So, can't make any comment. I think Prabhupada told us what he thought was necessary. Not that we can't investigate more, but he has made a foundation for ivestigation.

We will look for the photos!!!

Your news is always great.

What about contacting Prof. Mabbit????
