Serendipity

Dear Maharaj,

PAMHO AGTSP


Yes Maharaj. At that time I was taking guidance under the one ISKCON Guru's Sanga-siksa system. He told me to follow my parents. For consultation with Sadhu, I spoke to my parents and siksha guru (arranged by them and disciple of HH RNS), all told to jump on this marriage opportunity brought by my siksha guru despite everything. And sastra says only Kshatriya women can choose their own husband/parents have right to decide spouse.


I sensed many problematic situations will come from this marriage or maybe my fear manifested them. But I also knew being vowed to solve them will result in much spiritual growth. My friends, intuition and astrologers said don’t do it: His affairs will give you sanyas life. I put my hands up and said if this is what you want Krsna, so be it.


I definitely have grown. 4yrs ago I couldn’t imagine tolerating this. I had to face a lot of internal demons: pride, inferiority complex of cowife, loneliness, attachment to conventional grhasta life, insecurity, uncertainity, anxiety, false shelter etc. I am working to mold my life closer to SP’s discipline and thus becoming more internally satiated with my personal, spiritual and material goals.


Earlier, every interaction with my husband would bite me like this many hooded serpant and I’d get fevers, and insomnia. But since you gave us shelter, we have developed some immunity to this poison and this have better sadhana. And most importantly this problem has brought our heart so much closer to yours 🙏. Serendipity. And perhaps the good is slowly revealing itself.


Your servant,

Yajnaseni DD


HpS - ASA - Thank you for giving some lucid explanation of your experiences. I think that others are getting perspectives on their own lives.

Madhyama Adhikari

  1. Loves Krsna.
  2. Makes friends with devotees.
  3. Preaches to the innocent.
  4. Avoids the demons.

Of course, most of us are a mixture of qualities 2-4.

So, best thing in our stage is to become expert at avoiding being bitten. See the neurotic attachment of people kicking in and overwhelming their intelligence, and jumping out of their line of fire.

Eg. "Thanks, Prabhu, love to talk about that. I'll be right back!"

Black magic

2 weeks, 3 days ago by yajnasenidd in Other

Maharaj,

PAMHO AGTSP!

Bhrigu Nadi informed me one woman from your husbands family is causing problems between your husband and you. I have a feeling my husbands girlfriend has been doing black magic on me. She comes from a part of India where this is very common. Fevers, nightmares, insomnia, loss of home, husband, all enthusiasm to live, inauspicious right eye flickering a lot repeatedly over this year etc. have been a constant part of this year. She’s sitting in my home with my husband and I’m out. Will we loose to a woman using black magic? She has access to all my personal items. Is there a way to stop black magic?


In august my husband was still agreeing to take marriage counselling, But everytime I book tickets to go, I’d get extremely sick.


I feel until my husband hears from legal authorities, he won’t stop. I need to file an FIR to get new passport. Should I pursue legal help at this point?


your aspiring servant,

Yajnaseni DD


HpS - ASA -- AGTSP! Paoho. Again, we, HpS, Tom Brown, Buck White, are 97% incompetent to handle this kind of stuff.

In general, it does exist. Story of Bhaktivinode Thakura and big Tantric is there.

Yet, as Sannyasis we only take shelter of Radha Krsna within our heart of hearts.

Our external Deity worship is very simple, but our internal is more developed than Grhastha.

Let us see if some Grhastha reads this and can give advice.


Legal things again are very individual. Sometimes it is good, sometimes it is bad.

Advice would be better from your father, brothers et al.


Every tiny step you take in improving your Hari Kirtan, Japa, is an permament step forward against subtle influences.

PERMANENT.


Clarification

Maharaj, PAMHO AGTSP


Writing to clarify, no death threats were given to my husband. He just doesn’t want to give me a place to stay/for me to take anything from our mutual home or give me the key. We only said such double affairs result in 1-2 deaths. He is twisting this. My father gave him example of my cousin’s husband who committed suicide after the husband of the woman he went after, beat him up. Also my husband’s girlfriend’s husband called me in a lot of anger asking why my husband video calls his wife at night. We wanted to warn my husband that he’s already beaten up his wife’s boyfriends in the past. It’s a situation where you try to warn someone and they call you the threat. He’s accusing us of conspiring with his girlfriend’s husband and of me having an affair with him. Unfortunate. We apologize for this inconvenience to you. We will try to speak more politically correctly in future🙏.


On another note, after your conversation with my husband, we had a very nice interaction over WhatsApp with him. Then I came here and read his letter to you. It really hurt to read he’s still asking for divorce. We have tried to change in every way for this marriage to work, but it’s as if it doesn’t matter what I do, his feelings are rooted elsewhere, perhaps in his own guilt and insecurity. I can’t change his heart, maybe because his guilt won’t allow his heart to change. Can his new girlfriend who has such a bad history, really be so much better? I find it hard to believe. I don’t intend to divorce him. We are trying to pacify him with nice words like you said try to message him at 1am. Trying to chant to get perspective. Let’s see what Krsna wants. Trying to keep insomnia under control so morning rounds not endangered again. Even if I have one message interaction with him, its so toxic and draining that I can’t sleep and I get sick. Why do I feel zapped every interaction? I need to gather more strength.


First he was bothered about being together. After marriage he was bothered about whether he made right choice. Then he bothered me about rent, I moved in with my parents, now he’s bothering me about divorce. Then he will bother about alimony. After he gets everything he wants from me and is still unhappy, i wonder how he will manage to find something to bother me about 🤦🏻‍♀️.


Something my heart asks again and again is how can our desire to uphold shastras loose to people with loose character?


Your aspiring servant,

Yajnaseni DD


ASA - Yuddhisthira's desire to uphold Sastra lost to Duryodhana who had lose character, not loose character.

Is that your question and an illuminating answer?


Mula Nasredim says that one should not engage in an argument with a fool, because people may have a hard time ditinguishing which one of you is the fool.


Try to help him like you would help a tiger who lives in the same forest where you live.

With proper safety.


What did Draupadi think of Duryodhana?

Kunti of Duryodhana?

Yuddhisthira of Duryodhana?

My spiritual journey and my strong desire to serve Gurumaharaj 🙇🙏🙏

Hare Krishna..!! 🙏

Dandavat pranam gurumaharaj.. 🙏Gurumaharaj please accept my humble obeisances.

All glories to Srila Praphupada..!! 🙏

Gurumaharaj, I'm your servant Nabadwipa Ishwara Das from Imphal, Manipur.

Gurumaharaj, I would like to share a bit about my spiritual journey.


On my early days I was so fortunate that I met Sharad Guarangi mataji. She used to guide me and one day she gave me a wonderful opportunity to associate with the serious deevotees. And she even added me to watsaap group for devotees name "Hare krishna". Here in this group daily we use to share our devotional activities ,photos, videos ,sastras , Srila Prabhupad's spiritual quotes etc. And Daily through this group sharad gaurangi mataji give classes for bhagavad gita at evening 7-8 pm and bhagvatam at 6:30-7 am.


One fine day, I shared about my desire to be your disciple at Sharad gaurangi mataji. So, on my birthday mataji gave me your framed photo as a priceless gift. From that day I started praying at your lotus feet. And with krishna's mercy I was blessed to take part in your diksha program here in Imphal,Manipur.


Gurumaharaj, I'm following the 4 regulative principles strictly and chanting 16 rounds daily. Moreover, I'm attending mangal aarti daily and on sunday I go along with sharad mataji to attend mangal aarti. And after attending mangal aarti at Iskcon mandir, me and sharad mataji go for Govindaji temple dharshan.


Gurumaharaj ,I have a strong desire to serve you. I'm bowing down my head at your lotus feet, Please allow me to serve you🙏. I've also booked my ticket and I'm arriving on 8th of December at Radhakunda. And I'll be staying there till your vyasa puja.🙏

Greetings from Vancouver, B.C.

Hare Krsna, Hanumatpresaka Maharaj!


I am writing to you in hopes that you may have some small memory of me.


I met you at the Vancouver, B.C. ISKCON temple where I served as a young bhakta. I was dear friends with Bhakta Jeremy, who became one of your disciples. His spiritual name was Jananivasa dasa.


HpS - AgtSP. Paoho. What happened to him? He left his wife and that was the last i head of him!!


It has been many years since I left the movement but I was recently reintroduced to Krsna Conciousness through a family friend.


I am very interested in reading and hearing Srimad Bhagavatam and currently listen to classes by Srila Prabhupada.


I would also love an opportunity to converse with you about the Vedas and spiritual life in general.


Thank you so much for your time.


Warm Regards,

Edward Dinsley


HpS - We keep this Blog and from our webpage www.jayarama.us you can see our fortnightly news letter.

I guess along with those and the mercy of God we can stay in touch.

This is a wonderful path!
