Hare Krishna Dear Gurumaharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

We started answering the Disciple Reports. We got like 7-done and the web-page won't post them. Happens for some time.

I checked error logs and found issue. When user who sent report had no email set on their profile it made error.

Now should be fixed and work correctly.

Please let me know if you have still any issues with it or other things.

Your servant Prahlad Nrsimha das

HpS - AGTSP paoho Thank you for removing bugs from our board.

[BLOG UPDATE] & short report

8 months, 1 week ago by pnd in Sankirtana / Temple Activity Reports, Hot Topics

Hare Krishna Dear Gurumaharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Can you add "Or Click Here to Browse for Photos" to where it says "Drag photos here". 


To make things more easy I have added one button on letter create page. So there is now 'Save' and 'Save & Attach Photos'. So if somebody uses second one he is directly sent to photo upload page.

There is also new menu item 'My letters' in top menu (next to 'Sign out'). It redirects to page where are letters from specific user.

Fixed bug edit page of letter when 'Letter type' was empty if letter has more than one type.

Mini report

Few weeks ago mangala arati attendance in our temple was not so big (2-3 people). Now we are up to 14 devotees there. 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒 🐒

I rented table in coworking place. It is 4 minutes walk from Govinda Restaurant, where my wife works. It is very nice space here and very good mood for working. And all people here love Caitanya/sezami halva :)

Started to develop offline reader on Android. Later will work on iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux too. And people will be able to create own library packages with own texts. Still long way to have it released, but I am already using it for reading.

The Supreme Undifferentiated Absolute Commando of ASA has therefor bestowed the Golden Banana of Everlasting Fame upon P. N. Das. May he prosper and go to Goloka ASAP!

I am very happy for the award and that I can be somehow useful.

Your servant Prahlad Nrsimha das

HpS - ASA --- Actually we all fall at your feet and thank you for your mercy. It is so great that we cannot properly describe it. It keeps ASA alive. Wait for more news as it comes. Best wishes for all your Sankirtan.

Hare Krishna Dear Guru Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

[[[ Don't want to put any pressure on PND at all. He has given such wonderful facility in this Blog, but if the pictures can be added that would nice, no? But no rush]]]

Few days ago I have added uploaded photos from old blog. And from today everybody can upload photos to their letters. It is done like this:

  1. Add new letter, save it
  2. On letter page there is orange button "Attach Photos" on top right, click it
  3. It redirects you to upload photo page, you can either drag photos there or click/tap in upload widget and it will ask you to choose your photos
  4. Wait when all photos are uploaded (it will show ✔ check mark sign on photos)
  5. Photos will show on bottom of the letter

Your servant Prahlad Nrsimha das

Uncle Gismo - Thank PnD. We will try it now. . . . . Can you add "Or Click Here to Browse for Photos" to where it says "Drag photos here". Also it now uploads BMP files! But we got back to this phase and don't know if our photos are attached. O.K. We will Publish and see if it works.🙄

Urgent thinking about death

9 months ago by candra108_mukhi in Hot Topics

Hare Krishna Beloved Gurudeva


So sorry I have read that You need to rest your eyes

I just want to express that I am almost detached from my mom. Today she was bleeding like nothing.... It was really scary her pressure was 5.6 she almost passed away. It was really awful she your own mother covered with blood. I do not want that she suffers, she is stable now. But for how long? Cancer is one of the worst illness that we can suffer. We need to forgive a lot, and take our spiritual process really serious, but then I recall Bhakti Thirta S. He was a very honest and serious man. Why he had to suffer? My mom is a very chaste, honest, wonderful lady....

Then I think who will take care of me? Maybe I can join yugala and take care of each other. Being lonely is the worst thing. I was thinking about how I am going to die? Very selfish of myself. Sri Krsna will take charge right?

Well Gurudeva is a great opportunity to be more Krsna conscious. Please forgive my stupidity. I just want to share this with U. I feel unprotected :(

My mom will go soon. I guess that it is about time to be more serious and be conscious that we are preparing our next body

Jaya Sri Rama.

May the Lord protect U always

Your insignificant ser

HpS - ASA -- Hare Krsna! Just call out to Krsna, "Are you there?"

Krsna - Of course, you idiot! We are always here. It's just a movie show. What if you were a child alone in Bosnia in the snow with your Mother Father Sister, Aunt and Uncle blown to pieces.

Hare Krsna!

Can be a wonderful movie even if it is a war movie.

Cancer is the conclusion of everything. The whole material world rots. Have to accept that everything we know will rot, but... rot is good... all the flowers, wheat, bread, is born from rot. Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer. Around and around.

Make it simple. Help your Mother accept the rotting, pain, as the creation of the new body and then focus on waking up. Hare Krsna. Make her a pure devotee in the next few days, weeks.

How to Lead Mangala Arati

9 months, 2 weeks ago by hps in Special Category B, Hot Topics


Once I, T. Brown, approached Uncle Gismo, who was seated in Samadhi next to his thing-a-majig, and asked him how to lead Mangala-arati.

Sri Gismo Uvaca (The Blessed Uncle Gismo Said): In ISKCON there are three ways to lead Mangala-arati: The right way, the wrong way and the ASA way. Even the ASA way has varieties but now, I shall describe one. (Sound of heavenly 'Uuus and Aaaas')

First, with love!

If you haven't got pure love then at least do it clean. I mean the Kartals and drum should never be louder than the Bhajana, Gurv-astakam. The frame should not detract from the picture. The frame should stand unnoticed but magnify aspects of the picture.

Learn the translation, word-by-word, the grammar. If with meaning you sing, your heart will certainly ring.

It's not two parallel mono-logs.It is a dialog. Got it?  Both sides should listen to the other, not just chant.

2/3 of the time should be Maha-mantra: HK HK --- KK HH ... Skc, Pn... HK HK... and Haraye namah ... Just the first and third line of that song. Look for the explanation at the end of 'CC, Adi-lila, Chapter on "Lord Caitanya in His Youth"'.

Your hands should not separate from your body by more than four inches and foam can come from your mouth only as long as it is of good quality and digestible like cotton candy.

Any other questions?

T.B. - Seems like enough for now.

U.G. - Haaa Rummfff. (One of the Professor's 'bija-mantras'.

Two questions

10 months ago by bhaktanicasio in Hot Topics

Hare Krishna Beloved Gurudev,

Please accept my humble obeisances,

All glories to Srila Prabhupada,

Thank you so much for answering my previous question.

Now i have two more questions, if you can please kindly answer them!!

1) In Dvapara yuga the dharma was deity worship. What were the Istha Deva of that yuga? Cause Krisna was present himself at the end of that Yuga, so were Radha Krisna murtis worshiped in the temples? Or was mainly Mahavisnu or Sita Ram?

HpS - AGTSP! I don't know. It was probably like now, different groups worshipped different Murtis. Tamasic people Lord Siva, Rajarsic Surya, Sattic Lor Varaha, Nrsmaha, Visnu...

2) Yudhisthira was the son of Yamaraja, and Vidura was Yamaraja in his previous life. But we read in Mahabharata that Vidura was uncle of Yudhisthira. How can we relate this two statements?

HpS - Also don't know. We can be on the phone talking to someone and also see them acoss the street and signal to them with our hands.

Thank you so much Gurudev,

At your Lotus feet,

Nikunja Bihari das.

HpS - More letters!
