Moving out [Jaya Hari Das] [Red Lord]

2 months, 3 weeks ago by yajnasenidd in Other

Maharaj,


PAMHO AGTSP,


It’s been very tough to manage emotions this month. We ended up blocking my husband and his whole family. Our mutual apartment lease gets over in August. Over the past 2 years he’s asked me several times how to divide the furniture and others commodities.


My sadhana went down due to health. Now health is better but I’m not able to sleep on time somehow my thoughts bother me. Praying to Krsna and His devotees can forgive my offences.


your aspiring servant,

yajnaseni dd


HpS - Krsna tells Arjuna, one who does good, my friend, is never overcome by evil.

You are an example to so many other lady body Jivas who are in difficult situations in their marriage.

Did Mandodari have more difficult situation than you do?

Hope your Sankirtan is super.

Recently you asked if i was still having problems along the lines of what I mentioned a few years back w the wart on my Leg. Thankfully im not. I follow the principles strictly. I did have a cup of green tea and piece of garlic bread offered to me recently but felt bad about that and plan no repeat there. Hoping just to take up what is favorable for devotional service and discard what is unfavorable. Thank you for your time, instructions, and your care. Please instruct me Gurudeva, I will do exactly what you say no excuses. Hare Krishna Hare Rama


HpS - ASA - Thank you. AgtSP! I think we deal with a lot of these topics in the paper letter.

It is now addressed, sealed and waiting to be stamped.

We will be your neighbors for one month.

Starting 16th May.

Querido Gurudeva, me alegra que continúe sus documentales. Tal vez, en alguno pueda incluir una historia, dramatización con más actores, en cortos, películas, la música es muy importante. Creo que si va a España Vrsavanu pondrá el toque femenino. En audio visuales el fondo y la forma son igual de importantes. Son sólo humildes sugerencias.

Mi servicio ahora es de profesora de colegio de primaria y los fines de semana harinama con Prabhu Kolaveca, un devoto antiguo, gran distribuidor en su juventud nos reunimos con Prabhu Puspa, Prabhu Rupa y otros, me gusta esa asociación, porque son gente ejemplar completamente dedicados a la prédica, pienso que deberían haber más distribuidores, desarrollan mucho la empatía con las personas, son veraces, humildes, se les ve felices y eso se ve reflejado en sus tratos con los demás.

Estoy visitando iglesias cercanas que atienden normalmente, así salgo de la rutina y la atmosfera de música y canto me agrada. Ahí puedo cantar rondas. El templo sigue abriendo sólo los domingos, es una pena. Es una lucha trabajar como profesor y cantar, ahora ya estoy habituada, los meses pasados fueron duros, dormía poco, temía enfermar. Tuve que hacer cambios, estuve mucho tiempo sin trabajar. Siempre prefiero a los niños por su energía y entusiasmo.

En Perú desde antes que Ud. se fuera, la gente estaba más relajada de la pandemia, ahora por ejemplo mis clases son presenciales. Los niños son de 8 a 12 años. Estoy enseñando comunicación entre los cursos que se enseñan son Plan lector. Se lee mucho y eso me agrada. Creo que tantos gritos de los niños y la mascarilla ya no escucho bien. Iniciamos las clase con una oración, ahora cada día leerán una oración de diferentes religiones, estoy pensando en alguna de nuestro movimiento, se le ocurre alguna? No puede ser el mantra.

En la clase de compresión lectora incluiré algunos pasajes Ramayana, y los cuestionarios que voy haciendo los guardare en un registro, tal vez en el futuro sean de utilidad. Así pronuncian Rama. A los más pequeños les adaptaré la historia de Hanuman.

Estoy feliz por las bendiciones de Krsna, me permite tener asociación pero también me protege, sigo feliz siendo célibe, definitivamente creo que es lo mejor para mí. Algunas piensan que eso es anormal a mi me parece anormal tener tantas parejas, las personas somos diferentes. Estamos de pasada por aquí, somos un león solitario que evita a gente tóxica, que le gusta vivir pacíficamente y libre. Ahora el reto es estudiar las escrituras, continuar con ello. Deme sus bendiciones, creo que ese es mi pedido.

Dear Gurudeva, I am glad that you are continuing the documentaries of him. Perhaps, in some you can include a story, dramatization with more actors, in shorts, movies, music is very important.


HpS - Yes, but we don't want it to be documentary of HpS, rather Tom Brown and Buck white in the principle part.


I think that if Vrsavanu goes to Spain, she will add the feminine touch.


ASA - ... and Hari vamsi! He will add the muchacho touch.


In audio visuals, background and form are equally important. They are just humble suggestions.


My service now is as a primary school teacher and on the flourma weekends with Prabhu Kolaveca, an old devotee, a great distributor in his youth, we meet with Prabhu Puspa, Prabhu Rupa and others, I like that association, because they are completely exemplary people. dedicated to preaching, I think there should be more distributors, they develop a lot of empathy with people, they are truthful, humble, they seem happy and that is reflected in their dealings with others.


ASA - Kolaveca Sridhara Das, Puspa gopal Das.... !!!


I am visiting nearby churches that attend normally, so I get out of the routine and the atmosphere of music and singing pleases me. There I can sing rounds. The temple is still open only on Sundays, it's a shame. It's a struggle to work as a teacher and sing, now I'm used to it, the past few months were hard, I slept little, I was afraid of getting sick. I had to make changes, I was a long time without working. I always prefer children for their energy and enthusiasm.


ASA - Super, Yugala kishore Das... Super. Mercy of Krsna.


In Peru, since before you left, people were more relaxed about the pandemic, now, for example, my classes are face-to-face. The children are from 8 to 12 years old. I am teaching communication between the courses that are taught are Reading Plan. He reads a lot and I like that. I think that so many screams from the children and the mask I no longer hear well. We started the class with a prayer, now every day they will read a prayer from different religions, I am thinking of one of our movement, can you think of one? It can't be the mantra.


ASA - https://vedabase.io/es/library/sb/1/8/9/ and https://vedabase.io/es/library/sb/1/8/10/

O.K?


In the reading comprehension class I will include some Ramayana passages, and the questionnaires that I am doing I will keep in a record, perhaps in the future they will be useful. This is how they pronounce Rama. For the little ones I will adapt the story of Hanuman.


I am happy because of Krsna's blessings, He allows me to have association but He also protects me, I am still happy being celibate, I definitely think it is the best for me. Some think that this is abnormal, it seems abnormal to me to have so many partners, people are different. We are passing through here, we are a lonely lion who avoids toxic people, who likes to live peacefully and freely. Now the challenge is to study the scriptures, continue with it. Give me your blessings, I think that is my request.

HpS - You already have so much blessings! We pray that Krsna shows you the areas where you must make improvement!

Jayyy!!

Please accepte my Humbble obeisances to your lotus and beatiful feeds!!👏👏👏

Oll glories to Srila Prabhupada!!!!

Happy VARUTINI EKADASI TODAY!!! ❤💙💖💜💛💚


In response to your last letter: I was reading Srimad Bhagavatam 10 : 19 and that is when Krsna swallowed the forest fire to save his cowherd friends and the cows..

Do you want me to do a dance on that?

Or is there a confusion? ? 😊😀

In chapters 46 Udhava visits vrndavan and chapter 47 the song of the bee... I think this is the pastime that you want... which of the chapters would be better??


HpS - Yes. For many, many years we have been suggesting making a nice dance out of the Song of the Bee. How much it includes from the SB would have to be your decision. Talk to friends.


Thank you very much for your time 👏👏👏


trying to please him: Radha Japa Prati jalpa Devi Dasi


PS: Do you remember? ...that you try to do the pastime in chosica a vyasa puja of you with nitya kishori and madhumati devi dasi... I never knew if you liked that dance...

thank you very much!!!!❤💙❤


HpS - We don't remember! It should be part of a movie.

Hare Krsna Maharaj

Hare Krsna, Dear Maharaj, 

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada. 

Please Accept my Humble Obeisances. 

First of all, I would like to apologise for my procrastination and lack of communication with you. I always think about the things I want to tell and ask you, but I never get around to actually acting upon it and this is my fault for being too lazy. Please forgive my disregard in this manner. I am forever indebted to you. 


HpS - Hare Krsna! Are you the daughter of Raktaka Das??? We forget you from just your log in name! Maybe it will be revealed in your letter.

Welcome to the ASA Blog.


It has been too long I don’t even know where to begin. 


HpS - Hari Bolo!


How are you Maharaj? How is your health? I am following you on Twitter and there is a Facebook page that updates on your schedule and activities. You authored a book? That is awesome.


HpS - As the Kapi Dhvaja says, and posts here in the Blog, we are suspecting that we will be in this body for about two more years. At heart we seem to be making progress in eternal purification by the mercy of Srila Prabhupada and Lord Nityananda.


Thank you for being so compassionate and funny and awesome. We love you. 

How was your Vyasapuja? 


HpS - Nice. We really had a chance for all of us to glorifiy Srila Vyasadeva, Parampara and our individual positions in it.

Peru.


We filmed a small video, our family, and sent it through one of papa’s god sisters. Same as the previous year. We hope you received them well and we appreciate everything you do and the time you always give to hear us.  


HpS --- Awwww. I think we saw them. Dhruva did it, no?


In regards to myself, I have been slacking in my sadhana. I have not been chanting so consistently and I really want to change this. I know if it’s something I want to do, I just have to do it, rather than talk and pretend like I want to do it. But sometimes I just find it hard to motivate myself. A couple of years ago, I was so on top of it and chanting even before midnight to at least finish my rounds. Now, I may say, “oh, I can just do it the next day” and so on. I’m trying to find a strong base for me so that I can desire to chant and love doing it, not begrudgingly. 


HpS - Good attitude. Any progress you make in chanting is eternal. Right now let us chant one Maha-mantra.... !!!! !!! ! ! !! ! ! !.

We made progress. There is NOTHING that we can do that is better than chanting HKHKKKHHHRHRRRHH. Sankirtan, health, social re sponsi bility, wealth..... all will improve at the maximum pace.


On this note, I also have a question in regards to chanting that I’ve been meaning to ask you for a while.

I’d been told that one should not chant the Pancatattva Mantra on the Big Krsna Bead. I tried to research a little bit about it. The thing is, I also only recently finished Chant and Be Happy (which is an awesome introductory book actually) and at the end it is said that the Krsna bead should not be chanted on. I think I have found this elsewhere as well and many devotees follow this. 

I cannot remember who taught me to chant (probably Papa), but for practically my entire life, I have chanted the Pancatattva mantra on the Krsna bead and I’m sure my father would’ve said if it was wrong if he’d seen me do it. I asked my mother and she said she does not do so. 

I found my papa’s old videos on YouTube and in the “how to chant” video, he says one can chant the Pancatattva mantra on the Big Krsna bead.

I know my papa only preaches what he knows to be correct and bonafide, but in many other places and instances, it says one should not chant anything on it. My uncle also confirmed this. 

May you please shed some light on this? And is it offensive to have chanted on the Krsna bead? Or is it a small technicality I should not worry myself over? Is it okay to chant the Pancatattva mantra on the Krnsa bead?


HpS - As far as I, in my limited knowledge, know. We should not chant on the KRSNA bead. I even try to avoid touching it as much as I can. I chant the PT mahamantra by itself without necessarily touching any beads.

Maybe your esteemed father just had a wrong impression.

That's what I know.


You may have noticed, I seem to be the most technical person and I like to be accurate where I can and follow the regulations nicely. 

Please guide me. 


I have had many other questions also and I will get to them later perhaps, in the next message. Before this one will get too long. 


On another note in regards to me, I am still studying graphic design. I am taking it slow (3 units per semester rather than the usual 4-full time) and so I may have 2-3 years left. It’s okay. Not exactly the best, but much better than business and I’m learning a lot. I can serve Krsna in many ways with some skills. I have designed a really cool t-shirt on the Adobe programs. I will upload an image of it. It can be very sattvic and fun I think.


I have been working at Spotlight (a craft/art/fabric/all-round kind of store) casually for almost 2 years now. So far, it’s okay. They pay well and it’s good to have extra paisa. The first day actually I wanted to quit because I felt the colleagues were quite mean and the boss was a little scary but I calmed down and here we are now. I am buying lots of fabric always and have been sewing a bit lately too. 

So far I’m also lucky that they haven’t kicked me out as our family is not vaccinated. My mother isn’t too keen on it and didn’t want us to get it. Also my auntie’s family. My uncle had to leave Govindas due to this unfortunately. What a time we live in. 

The only thing I’m most sad about is the travel restrictions. I am missing India so much and would also love to visit Baku but we may have to wait a couple years till we will be able to do that, Krsna willing.

I really hope you will be able to visit Australia at some point soon. We already have 3 Maharaj’s coming to Brisbane in the next month. We are in dire need of your mercy and we miss your association. 


Last year I started reading the Bhagavad Gita. This is very shameful but better late than never.. Anyway, I am almost done now and I’m quite excited to read Srimad Bhagavatam and other books. Sometimes what is written can be very confusing for my little mundane brain to understand, but I persist. I really am bewildered by the fact that I was born into this movement and I may find it difficult to understand, whereas people who have never heard of it, read it, and they completely accept everything. It amazes me and I commend all the devotees. 

I’m simply trying to understand all the philosophy for myself. Rather than accepting it blindly and following without understanding it or without any faith. I want to have that revelation where I see, “WOW, this is really it.” It may take me years or lifetimes to come to that conclusion. But I’m hoping it will be sooner. 

I am receiving so much mercy from Guru and Gauranga and the devotees. That - I have no doubts about. 


I am doing Tulasi Seva here. I have been now for at least a year at the temple. Usually about once a week where I can, I go and cut all the manjaris. I’ve recently also started to make Manjari Garlands from them too. It is such a nice, peaceful service and I really enjoy it. I will definitely keep at it. At home too, I cut all the manjaris. Sometimes it can take a couple of hours. Tulasi just flourishes. 


Anyway, 

I have practically now written enough for an essay hahah. I will stop here and tell you more next time. 


Lastly though, I have a question. 


This following part was from the previous year’s Vyasapuja and so I’m just copying my question from there. 


We would like to wish you well on this most auspicious day of your appearance. We are very happy that you are always serving Srila Prabhupada and his mission and delivering the devotees. I have wanted to double check on which exact day it is. I read on your blog that it’s on the appearance day of Locana Das Thakur, 2 days before Jive Goswami disappearance. And so, according to our time here, that makes your appearance on the 14th of January, Vedic time. Google bhagvan (as papa used to say) says it’s on the 12th of January, 1948. 


So, what is the day? Vedic and Non-Vedic days. We would like to know so we can celebrate properly. 


HpS - Locana Das Thakura's day!


JAI GURUJI!!! 

I wish to tell you more and more but I will save it for later. And I’m really keen to ask you a question that is most exciting. I will wait. 


Thank you for everything always Maharaj, your mercy is unlimited. 


Please accept my not so humble Obeisances. (I heard this in a class lately. Maybe we aren’t offering our ‘humble’ obeisances)


Your servant, 

Lakshmi


HpS - Well, how's the Bhima?? Any dreams about your esteemed father? Has Silky had any children yet?
