Hare Krishna, Gurudeva 🙏🏻

Please, accept my humble obeisances at your lotus feet!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada! 🌷


I am writing to ask for your blessings so that I can visit New Vraja Mandala while you stay there.

I contacted Maharaja Yadunandana Swami and he agreed for me to stay in the brahmacarini asrama.

I am going to do service for the Deities and for the devotees.


With the grace of Krishna I hope to be able to buy my ticket next week.


Gurudeva, please grant me your blessings to be able to complete this very important trip.....to be able to take personal darsan from you again, to serve Radha Govinda Candra and to take the opportunity to improve the quality of my association with my godsisters and godbrothers there.


Please, grant me the strength and intelligence to be able to overcome all the challenges that come my way on this journey and the challenges that arise during my stay in New Vraja Mandala 🙏🏻


Waiting for your causeless mercy..



Your aspiring servant:

Mitravinda dd.


HpS/ASA[tb~] - AgtSP! Yes! Granted..... You see the banks just paid the ticket!

Very nice.

Very nice.

You will be able to see all the places in DTC(UT 3).

Wonderufl!

Depend on KRSNA

Giridhari Das - True Gurudev.....KRSNA never let anyone down at any situation if he / she honest for a second, Krsna never forget but we again & again. 


You are at a true state ( 'Para' state ) so only you see the true which is eternal, Which is permanent actual state. That's why you never let down anything which is related to Krsna.

You have a fully realized body inside your material body.


ASA - Hare Krsna! AgtSP! Paoho.

Guess we can claim to be finishing 16-rounds a day with some passion. Following four principles, but still overwhelmed by desire for subji and puri's some times.


Best guess is that we still have material desires but they are diminishing.

We are a practical channel to Srila Prabhupada if you use us in relation to Srila Prabhupada's ISKCON and his books!

HARE KRSNA:>>

All Glories Yo Srila Prabhupada!!


All Glories To You my adored Gurudeva 🙏🏻🌷🌹🌻🌷🌻🌹



I was sensing that I should tell you that we changed numbers and I just received Your adorable response to my letter🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🌷🌻💕💗


 I remember that after my accident and in case a "death" happened to me on a bus, I wanted to listen to you and that's why I gave you my number, but it is no longer the same and that's why WhatsApp doesn't work there, please excuse the inconvenience caused 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 My new WASAP number is: 54 9 351 6434 ... and Franco's WASAP number, who recently has a number, is the following: 54 9 351 6434....


ASA/TB - We added yours. Changed Francos and deleted his older ones.


 We were testing which company had the best signal in our area. For this reason, Franco had a previous number that seems to be still his WhatsApp number and it is this:

 54 9 351 239.....


TB - Deleted


 Dear GURUDEVA I truly feel completely and eternally grateful to You.


 Now I am writing to you from a place with Wi-Fi and because they provide us with this service we have given three books by Srila Prabhupada to each of the boys who work here. I hope that at some point they reach out to the devotees!!! We gave them the address!!



HpS - SUper!!


 I hope you had a beautiful Gaura Pournima!! We celebrated a little at home. Very calm, in fact I sing every day but my devotion awakens more when I read his responses to my Gurumaharaja letters!! ! THANK YOU very much!!💗


 Here I send you a photo of Mr. Gauranga carved by Franco, he seems very beautiful to me!! Nityananda still needs to finish... Also a photo of my Krishna Balarama and Ladhu Gopal from yesterday, Monday, April 1.


 I don't consider myself a good mother or wife... I'm really missing a lot...!! I will only keep in mind that I am a good mother and wife when I can see Franco and Gopal playing with Govinda.. !!!! Only there will I say with happiness Mission accomplished!!💗💗💗


 Soon I will send you my letter informing both of my sankirtan here and the books we read... so many good things to tell you... how Srila Prabhupada knew what was going to happen... etc.


 Please forgive any offense in this message.

 Please don't worry, I am sending Your answers copied and pasted as they are to Mother Jambabati. She already received the two answers from her Gurudeva 🙏🏻💖


 Always trying to serve her and please her adorable lotus 💖:

 Radha Japa Prati Jalpa DD.


 postscript: Even if Krishna drives me crazy and whatever with me... I don't care... I can't live happily without him... Just thinking about him, seeing his Photo as soon as I wake up gives me the magic and the happiness that I need to continue day by day... without him... everything dark and empty... with him everything makes sense... thank you GURUDEV all are your unbreakable blessings 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🌷🌹💗💖

 ...He ( Govinda) is too cunning and he knows very well how to steal hearts... Very good...

. The day after the appearance of Lord Gauranga was my birthday... and the most beautiful gift that Krsna could give me was His response to my Postscript where I spoke to you about the first time I saw the photo of Krsna... That You speak to me like this Govinda, you gave me immense happiness... I really thank you very much for your mercy on this fallen soul who rises! to please you and the beautiful and cunning bluish flutist 💖🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

..I could listen to conversations like that, every second, for my entire life🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻💖


HpS // ASA - Thank you! (All). You are such valuable, valuable jewels to your entire community. Find ways to share your selves.

Preguntas Guru Tattva

2 weeks ago by Cruz Santa in Other

Querido Gurudeva, Por favor acepte mis humildes reverencias🙇🌻

Todas las Glorias sean a nuestro muy misericordioso Fundador Acarya AC Bhaktivedhanta Swami Prabhupada y todas las glorias sean a todos los fieles miembros de ISKCON🙇


Querido Guru Maharaja, oramos a nuestros amorosos señores le mantengan eternamente bajo su protección y que su energía sea buena y favorable a su Sankirtan. Gracias por disponer tantos medios para que sus sirvientes podamos conectarnos con Srila Prabhupada.


En cartas anteriores en este Blog, usted ha dicho que no dará más iniciaciones Diksa y en sus respuestas a diferentes aspirantes, usted ha RECOMENDADO o SUGERIDO a SS Yadunandana Swami como “un muy agradable Diksa Guru en España y a Radha Krsna Das en Houston”. Sin embargo; algunos devotos han interpretado esta recomendación como una ORDEN


Recientemente durante un foro público, un devoto dijo a SS Yadunandana Swami: “SS Hanumatpresaka Swami les ha dicho a todos los aspiraban tomar iniciación con él, que ellos TIENEN que tomar iniciación con SS Yadunandana Swami” lo que sorprendió a algunos devotos presentes.


Desde mi perspectiva, la anterior afirmación podría interpretarse como una aparente imposición, que no concuerda con lo que usted ha recomendado o con qué; debe existir una evaluación y aceptación mutua para el establecimiento de la relación guru discípulo, por lo que me he tomado el atrevimiento de escribir al respecto.


Le ruego me disculpe si es que estoy siendo ofensiva y también le ruego, si lo considera apropiado, aclare este aspecto para su torpe sirviente.


Otra pregunta que tengo al respecto es: 

Hay muchos devotos que durante años aspiraron a ser iniciados por usted, pero por distintos motivos, no fue posible. Cuando usted informó que ya no otorgará más iniciaciones, algunos se sintieron un poco perdidos y decían “Yo nunca he pensado en nadie más como Guru, ¿Qué voy a hacer ahora?…”


Gurudeva ¿Cómo pueden ellos, mantener o fortalecer su relación con usted aun cuando tomen refugio formal en un maestro espiritual en particular? ¿Dónde pueden acudir para obtener la fortaleza necesaria, reponerse y continuar en este sendero?


Muchas gracias por su misericordiosa guía Gurudeva, Por favor disculpe mis preguntas tan básicas y nuevamente le ruego me disculpe si he sido ofensiva de algún modo.


Siempre a sus órdenes, su aspirante a discípula.

Dear Gurudeva, Please accept my humble obeisances🙇🌻

All Glories be to our most merciful Founder-Acarya A. C. Bhaktivedhanta Swami Prabhupada and all glories be to all the faithful members of ISKCON🙇

Dear Guru Maharaja, we pray that our loving Lords keep you eternally under Their protection and that his energy is good and favorable to your Sankirtan. Thank you for providing so many means for your servants to connect with Srila Prabhupada.


HpS - ASA -- Thank you!


In previous letters on this Blog, you have said that you will not give any more Diksa initiations and in your responses to different aspirants, you have RECOMMENDED or SUGGESTED H. H. Yadunandana Swami as “a very nice Diksa Guru in Spain and Radha Krsna Das in Houston.” However; some devotees have interpreted this recommendation as an ORDER…


Recently during a public forum, a devotee told H. H. Yadunandana Swami: “H. H. Hanumatpresaka Swami has told all those aspiring to take initiation with him that they HAVE to take initiation with H. H. Yadunandana Swami” which surprised some devotees present.


From my perspective, the previous statement could be interpreted as an apparent imposition, which does not agree with what you have recommended or with what; There must be a mutual evaluation and acceptance for the establishment of the guru-disciple relationship, which is why I have taken the courage to write about it.


I beg your pardon if I am being offensive and I also ask you, if you consider it appropriate, to clarify this aspect for his clumsy servant.


HpS/ASA - Yes, agtSP. Paoho. It is just a general suggestion. Devotees may want to take 1st, 2nd, 3rd initiation from other devotees than Maharaja of Radha-krsna Das. Thank you for asking this question!


Another question I have about this is:

There are many devotees who for years aspired to be initiated by you, but for various reasons, it was not possible. When you informed that you will no longer be granting initiations, some felt a little lost and said “I have never thought of anyone else as a Guru, what am I going to do now?…”


HpS - Just because your Catholic Priest is too old to do marriages or Baptisms, does not mean that your spiritual relationship with him is broken. If it was a material relation, like a family counselor for material social, psycho and religious functions, then it was pretty limited from the beginning.

We are happy if we can act a Siksa gurus for people.


Gurudeva How can they maintain or strengthen their relationship with you even if they take formal refuge in a particular spiritual master? Where can they go to gain the necessary strength, recover, and continue on this path?


HpS - Hopefully they can find us at the lotus feet or Srila Prabhupada!

Mostly anything, or even everything, they have found attractive in us is coming from Srila Prabhupada, Gaura Nitai, Krsna!

Anything particular to us, is still here with us as the lotus feet of Guru.

🙂


Thank you very much for your merciful guidance Gurudeva, Please excuse my very basic questions and again I beg your pardon if I have been offensive in any way.

Always at your command, your aspiring disciple.

HpS/ASA - Thank your K. Shakti Devi Dasi.

What kind of body do you want next?

Interceding for Trinidad Bunster

2 weeks, 2 days ago by Carlos Rold in Other

Hare Krishna Gurudeva


Please accept my humble obeisances,

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!!


Gurudeva, I'm writing this letter to you because my heart is broken. On Sunday, March 31, a great friend of my daughter, Trinidad Bunster, 20 years old, the same age as my daughter, abruptly left the body. They had been friends since childhood and companions at school and in scouts. I always treated Trinidad like a daughter and she had a lot of association with me because she lived near us and the girls spent a lot of time together. She became a vegetarian by association with my daughter, she ate Prasadam many times, she always asked me things and took Srila Prabhupada's books.


It was in a car accident, there were two girls and two boys, the boy driving was drunk and speeding, they were probably all under the influence of alcohol. The crash was against a grove of trees at 1 am and Trinidad was ejected through the windshield and died instantly. The other girl, Agustina, finally left the body at 7 am.


Once Trinidad's mother called me on the phone to ask for guidance because the relationship between them was not good, the father was far away and apparently he had very little communication with his daughters, the mother also said "Trinidad told me that she would love to have a father like you are with your daughter.”


I want to ask you, please Gurudeva, to intercede for Trinidad to Sri Sri Radha Krishna and to Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu Gauranga Nityananda so that she becomes a devotee in her next life. I know that you can communicate directly with Srila Prabhupada, please Gurudeva, ask Srila Prabhupada for Trinidad so that she becomes a devotee in her next life, please Gurudeva, I pray to you, I beg you.


Gurudeva, I ask you to forgive me if this request is not appropriate or is not the properly way, if there is I don't know how it is, I just let myself be guided by my heart, and I know that I'm offensive by nature, but I'm rehabilitating myself, Gurudeva, thanks to your mercy and Srila Prabhupada.


I want to ask you some questions that I know are complex, but if you know anything about it according to the information we have in the Sacred Scriptures and in the teachings of Srila Prabhupada, in cases like that of Trinidad who left the body instantly and She wasn't a devotee but she is very favorable, ate prasadam many times, asked questions and took with her some Prabhupada's books; I know that the soul leaves the gross body and remains within the subtle body and continues on this world for some time and she is always with Paramatma; what could have happened to her soul at the time of leaving the body?, Have the Yamadutas come to look for her immediately or the Vishnudutas or perhaps some ancestor to assist her?, When approximately does the soul take new birth in cases like this?, What is the most important thing we should do and know in these situations?, How can I help her from where I'm now to where she is now?


Please Gurudeva, I apologize again if the way I ask you these questions is not appropriate, but my heart is broken, even knowing that we are not this body and that life is eternal, it hurts me a lot and It's hard to understand or assimilate, I want to be able to help Trinidad and maybe her family. On the day of the funeral I gave a Bhagavad Gita to her younger sister who is 18 years old, she accepted it moved and with great gratitude.


On Monday, and like every Monday, I had to make garlands for Sri Sri Gaura Nitay and Srila Prabhupada, I made them with a photo of Trinidad behind me and constantly asking to my Eternal Lord for that soul very dear to me. On the day of the funeral I told this to her mother and showed her the garlands in action decorating Sri Sri Gaura Nitay; I told to the father that Trinidad was like a daughter to me, he responded "I know."


Abhirama Thakur Das called me on Wednesday am to ask me something related to H.H. Bhakti Bhusana Swami and his visit to Sri Sri Gaura Nitay Santiago de Chile Mandir, and he told me that on the seventh day I can do a bounded and simple Sraddha ceremony that consists of offering a Prasadam to a photo of Trinidad and then putting that Prasadam in a bag and throwing it into the river or the sea.


Gurudeva, I'm sending to you a photo of Trinidad.


Soon I will send to you another letter regarding my personal process. Thank you very much for everything, Gurudeva, this year marked 10 years since I met you, the first time I saw you, on January 21, 2014 was when I did that interview with you for Mundo Nuevo Magazine at the Government Palace of Chile, into a special interviews room, with a lot of your disciples and wellwishers, the day I met also my dearest godbrother Rodrigo Hernández Piceros who made the video recording, we liked each other that same day. And the first impression I had about you after the interview was that you are the most intelligent and humble person I have ever met in my entire life. I had already interviewed very interesting and important people from Chile and even other countries. A few months earlier I produced a conversation/interview event at Centro Cultural de Las Condes with special and main guest Don Humberto Maturana, the important internationally recognized Chilean scientist and philosopher who at that same time was holding meetings with you and he was even a spectator and guest of honor at one of your conferences that you gave in the Centro Cultural Casa Pablo Neruda, I was also at that conference. And coming back to our first interview, after almost 3 hours of conversation you went to give your conference in the main auditorium of the Palace, a very big event with very important people in the audience; since then my life is no longer the same, you gave me an opportunity to understand God and serve Srila Prabhupada; today my greatest desire is to be your eternal servant, please Gurudeva, use me in your service.

Srila Prabhupada always said that this material world is a terrible place; everything he said and everything he did is the absolute truth for me.


Thank you very much Gurudeva, please accept my humble and respectful obeisances,

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!!!

All glories to H.H. Hanumatpresaka Swami!!!


Your aspiring servant,

Carlos from Iskcon Chile.


HpS/ASA - AgtSP. Paoho. Of course, Krsna is attentive to anyone who is trying to follow His devotee. You are trying to follow Srila Prabhupada, 16/4 etc.

So, the basic answer is that she has gone up

She was aware of the relationship that you had to her, the consciousness in that relationship, the Bhava,

Krsna is helping her.


Where is she?


Where is the car?

Same answer, so many details involved that would take time to find out.

Keep her picture where you can see it.

Chant some Japa for her.

If she is very close, she will experience it and it will help here even more.

Offer Mahaprasada to the picture.

Observe celebration on anniversary of her changing body.

Maybe you will have contact with her in dreams!

She has gone up and many opportunities and being presented to her.

Thank you.
