    Thank you Maharaj. I will wait for your call after your Manipur Visit.

    One more question, How can i be eligible for Krsna Prema?

Your aspiring servant,
Gopal Biswas

HpS - ASA -  AGTSP       We don't understand your statement exactly, about calling after we visit Manipur.     Nitya siddha krsna prema sadhya kabu...   Look it up in the Index to NOI.  There is the answer to your question!

Dear gurudev<img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/22.gif" title="" />

first of all, I would like to apologize for the delay in my report, also, I hope you, this very well, and your activities too.

in this report, I would like to tell , I'm singing my 16 rounds of japa daily, follow my 4 principles, I'm reading the book Krsna, every day before bedtime. 

in this letter, I would like to be honest with you gurudeva, this last month, I felt a little discouraged, in every aspect of my life, Therefore, material, and spiritually, in my life material, I not have the same interest, towards the activities and obligations I have to make, as college, responsibilities, or simple things like project myself, have a fixed goal in my life, I have no interest. And in my spiritual life, also I have this little motivation, if I sing my 16 rounds, but not with the strength I have to make, leave the service flower garland to the temple, is a general lack of motivation in my life, I feel very tired, physically and mentally, feel it is much bigger. my interest in my spiritual life than material. the association of devotees, and devotees closest friends, it helps keep me strong,their eternal association is very important for my. 

I know I'm doing things the hard way, in my life, but, how I can be more ambitious in my spiritual life? , How I can motivate myself, to set short term goals in my life material?, if, are missing the most important thing, "the motivation, to advance" .?? <img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/02.gif" title="" />

and yet despite all this, I've been working on a project, preaches on line, building a web site, going to be, a means of communication, which, covering, with social networks to reach all kinds of people, ages, and know Krsna consciousness.

still not finished, not online, but I would like, if you had a time to visit the site link, your opinion is very important in this Project. <img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/a38.gif" title="" />

Gurudeva, I appreciate your time in reading this report, promise, keep strong, to improve my spiritual life and material, and to serve, krishna, my family, Prabhupada, and especially you, the best way posible.

excuse my bad English, I hope you have a good stay in mexico, along with the devotees and spiritual brothers.

your humble servant

Santiago – Chile

HpS - ASA - Jaya. AgtSP.  We have to leave for the airport in just 30-minutes.  We have five more letters to answer and we have to pack. Your letter was too long for us to read in detail, but we read it in fast summary. It is very nice. You are tired. You need to get more exercise and rest. At this stage our "devotional service" is executed by the mercy of Krsna through bodily conception, bodily incarnations of Krsna. So, when your body is tired your "Bhakti" is tired.

O.K. Chant Hare Krsna, eat robust diet, work hard and don't worry. Very quickly your iintelligence will return and you will be sharply fixed in the ultimate goal of life!

     Oh...., you will not come for Kartika.
    But, How can i meet you, Maharaj. I know, whenever i chant, i get connected to you.

    i will wait for you.
    Question: How can i get 'Vairayagiya'?


Your aspiring servant,
Gopal Biswas

HpS - ASA - AGTSP!!!    When we get back o USA on 27th we will try to fix the travel, but feels pretty sure that we will visit Manipur and Kolkatta for 2-4th weeks of May.

Vairagya comes from Jnana. Once we know what is this world we become detached.  Look at "vasudevi bhagavati ..." in SB 1.2

Thank you.

Bad Impressions

10 years, 7 months ago by Bhakta Reilly in Other

Hare Krishna Hanumat Preshaka Swami Maharaja,

Please accept my humble obeisances, all glories go to Srila Prabhupada and Gauranga!

Maharaja, I was thinking the other day of giving bad impressions in Krishna Consciousness, Prabhupada, I think stated somewhere we should wear Tilak 24/7 even in our Karmi Clothes and at work, etc. But I was wondering, if I'm stuck with the material half of my family in the City Mall, and my little brother and sister are screaming and trying to wrestle with me on the resting benches<img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/17.gif" title="" /> <img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/a11.gif" title="" />, I have a visible Sikha, Tilaka, bead bag, etc etc, I think people will often see the 'Hare Krishnas' as some crazy typical biblical brainwash satanic cult or something crazy; all the chanting and marble deitys and books(Forgiveness! No real offenses!!) Thats how I sort of viewed it when I first came in, then the genuine authenticity and goal of the whole thing sunk into me: Krsna Prema Bhakti. Then I was like "Oh! Wow, I get the whole point now! Theres steps, a practical process, etc.."

So should I just wear a hood to cover the sikha and wipe off Tilak in Public scenes to avoid making bad impressions on people? With Tilak on, people tend to treat me oddly enough, or sometimes make fun of me in public .. I just don't want to, scare them away from the movement <img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/15.gif" title="" />

I often worry too if people will threaten me with violence too; I know it's probably rediculous to worry about, but o I react if I get some people coming up to me with fists or weapons, am I supposed to just be like Ahimsa, or run away, run away?

HpS - ASA  --    AGTSP!     Esteemed Bhakta Reilly.  For Sankirtana, I think Srila Prabhupada siad that marking the Tilak with water was O.K.    Personally, I think that you are right in many cases. People don't understand it and they have a bad impresssion. On the other hand their ignorant reaction is one thing and their spiritual benefit is another.
Many different aspects.
It also protects us, no?     Because we are wearing it people won't approach us for materialistic reasons. So, I would say that the important thing is to be always hearing and talking about Krsna and Tilak is good if you can do it. You can even wear India dress rather than Dhoti and then it may not seem so strange.

What do Gopal and Sri Hari Das say?
