Visit to New Vrajamandala (urgent)

Dearest Gurudev, AGTSSGN – AGTSP.


I hope your health is good, and your sankirtan pleases Radha and Krishna and Srila Prabhupada.

I wanted to tell you that I'm going to visit you in Madrid in February (from the 14th to the 22nd), I'm in communication with Majaraha Yadunandana, He is very kind. I'm waiting for the recommendation letter from the local administration to send to Him.

Regarding your question to Maha Anandini Mataji about Bhakti sastri, Yes I am, with Priyasakhi DD as my teacher. I have some pending tests to perform from the BG, but I've done well in general.


I keep cooking for Your Honors, thinking of doing a Bhakti Vriksa group for this year, twice a month. For Kartika month, we distributed small books among the new judo kids with Kamalaksi Subhadra (disciple of Jayapataka Swami Maharaja).


In this link, You can see the video that a friend called Felipe Cárcamo made from the Ratha Yatra festival. I think it is good material that will help us get sponsors and places for other festivals, I remembered to Prabhupada and Jayananda a lot. So here my contribution, I hope the texts are good for You.

Your eternal Servant, Parasurama Avatar Das, Santiago-Chile.


HpS - Very nice. AgtSP! We will put your dates on our Calendar. You can transport Prasadam from Chile for everyone.

Very nice.

We can help some plans for Sankirtan develop.

More Japa, more news.

LaksmiRadha DD reportando!!!

Haré Krsna Gurudev,

Acepte mis humildes y respetuosas reverencias🙏, TlgSP. TlgSsHpS.🙌

Querido Gurudev, estoy completamente convencida que se encuentra anímica y espiritualmente muy bien, usted está siempre realizando grandes proezas en KC, es un gran ejemplo para nosotros, Prabhupada debe estar muy feliz y satisfecho con su servicio. 💕💕💕

Quisiera comentarle que ya estamos comenzando el segundo año en Krsna Lunch en Gainesville, Florida y muy sorprendidos que diariamente se distribuyen entre 1.000 y 1.500 platos de prasadam, luego de cada break de semestre la gente llega muy contenta contándonos que nos extrañaron jejejeje sabemos que realmente extrañaron a Krsna Bhagavan prasadam, ay que dicha Gurudev! Es un intenso servicio en equipo, muy demandante, pero una gran experiencia para el alma. Syam sigue cocinando y yo atendiendo y limpiando.


 También participo diariamente en los programas de Krsna House, los miércoles estoy haciendo las pujas en los programas matutinos. Hay tanto que mejorar, espero poder honrarlo siempre en esta vida.


 Conocí a Nanda Vraj prabhu de Texas, este miércoles en Krsna House, que néctar, el podrá propagar más su persona. Yo sólo soy su humilde sirvienta Gurudev. Estuvimos viendo su itinerario en USA y con Syam Krsna Gopal mi esposo, pensamos que podríamos ir a tomar su asociación el fin de semana del 25-26 de febrero a Texas, es posible? el fin de semana es el único momento que tenemos ya que en la semana estamos sirviendo, Krsna quiera, si viene por más tiempo podríamos ir en el break o usted venir acá, Radha arregle lo más auspicioso para poder tener su asociación.


Con Syam estamos leyendo el Prabhupada Lilamrta y a mediados de febrero empezaremos el Bhakti Sastri con Prabhu Laksmana Das de Perú por un año on line. Hariiiiiibol. Gopalito está muy consentido y cuidado.


Tengo una pregunta, por que en el Canto 3 del Srimad Bhagavatam del veda base en español, mencionan a Vidura como un rey? Tengo entendido que el no tenía esa posición.

Querido Gurudev deseando siempre su bienestar, agradecidos siempre de su misericordia, sin otro deseo más que el servir adecuadamente,

Sus eternos sirvientes,

💙Laksmiradha DD y Syam Krsna Gopal Das.💙

Hare Krsna, Gurudev,

Please accept my humble and respectful obeisances 🙏, TlgSP. TlgSsHpS.🙌

Dear Gurudev, I am completely convinced that you are mentally and spiritually very well, you are always performing great feats in KC, you are a great example for us, Prabhupada must be very happy and satisfied with his service. 💕💕💕


I would like to tell you that we are already starting the second year at Krsna Lunch in Gainesville, Florida and we are very surprised that between 1,000 and 1,500 plates of prasadam are distributed daily, after each semester break people come very happy telling us that they missed us hehehehe we know that they really they missed Krsna Bhagavan prasadam, oh bliss Gurudev! It is an intense team service, very demanding, but a great experience for the soul.


Syam continues to cook and I tend to and clean.


 I also participate daily in the Krsna House programs, on Wednesdays I am doing the pujas in the morning programs. There is so much to improve, I hope I can always honor it in this life.


HpS - AgtSP! Thank you! Thank you all!. Is there much of a Hispanic community on the Campus?


 I met Nanda Vraj prabhu from Texas, this Wednesday at Krsna House, what a nectar, he will be able to propagate his person more. I am only the humble servant of his Gurudev. We were looking at your itinerary in the USA and with Syam Krsna Gopal my husband, we thought we could go to Texas to take your association on the weekend of February 25-26, is it possible? the weekend is the only time we have since we are serving during the week, Krsna pleases, if you come for longer we could go on break or you come here, Radha arrange the most auspicious thing to have your association.


HpS - We expect to be there. Although the material world is such a challenge.

Of course, we just have one old, little body so we won't be any miracle for Vapuh association, but some, and then others in the same Vani association as ourselves with also be there. Eg. Nanda-braja Das.


With Syam we are reading Prabhupada Lilamrta and in the middle of February we will start the Bhakti Sastri with Prabhu Laksmana Das from Peru for one year online. hariiiiii boll.


Gopalito is very pampered and cared for.


I have a question, why in Canto 3 of the Srimad Bhagavatam of the Spanish base veda, do they mention Vidura as a king? I understand that he did not have that position.


HpS - What is the specific reference? He may have been in charge of some kingdom. Maybe because he was born in the Ksatriya family. He is noted as a powerful fighter with bow and of course he is Yamaraja.


Dear Gurudev, always wishing for his well-being, always grateful for his mercy, with no other wish than to serve properly,

The eternal servants of him,

💙Laksmiradha DD and Syam Krsna Gopal Das.💙


HpS/ASA - ✋✋🙂 back to the kitchen!

danvadat Pranams 🙇🏼‍♂️


please accept my humble obeisances!


All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!


thanks very much for the replies to my letters. 🔥🔥🌧️🌧️ Was worried when my name was not on the list, ill ask Chaitanya Charitamrita if he is going to send an annual report.


i meet with around 5 devotees on zoom for an artik and bhagavatam class mon-fri & this morning we read this verse


https://vedabase.io/en/library/sb/1/6/16/


we usually read one verse every morning & alternate days leading a review/discussion of the verse. Have gotten to know the Bhagavad Gita much better by finding companion verses that mirror/echo or further explain the Bhagavatam verses we read daily.


I was supposed to travel with ISV devotees to Jagannath Puri, Kolkata & Mayapur this month, but a ladder fell from under me end of december and now recovering with broken heel. Got a 5 year visa, so hope to join this group for another trip to india this year or next. When im able to stand again will pick back up with a morning artik at my home altar.


Gurudeva, by your mercy i would like to take second initiation whenever possible. Cecilia is not chanting 16 rounds but we offer all meals to Krishna, and chant the Mahamantra & Panca Tattva mantra. She also helps take care of Tulsi. Tulsi has nice emerald green leaves since watering with a filtered water/cow manure mix.


By second initiation was hoping to take advantage of more service opportunities at the Berkeley Temple helping/sharing with cooking and altar services. Then able to help there or elsewhere with that training.


Are you connecting with disciples via gotomeeting 737859341? Wish there was a way to be notified by the app when you connect to the room. im at home 24/7 for some weeks til i can walk again. Hope to get the mercy of your association. Maybe pick up some espanol from those sessions? Reading Tava Pache Pache.


‘At the beginning of canto six Maharaja Pariksit asks how one can get free from this cycle of heaven-earth-hell-heaven-earth…y,’


‘sound familiar? Are you pushed like us to commit the same small sins again and again?’

p.18


’We try to serve, exploit, and enjoy the mind and body, which produces reactions, to which we react again, leading to more reactions.’ p.20 ♻️


Jaya Gurudeva!

Jaya Prabhupada!

thank you for your mercy!

Hari Bol!


your servant,


Loka Bandhu Rama Das


HpS - Thanks for all the news! Like a San Francisco Surf Board ride. Thanks.

Respects to Cecilia.

Great soul.


The second initiation is not so necessary.

Only thing it might add to your service is going on the altar in the Temple, and your worship at home can be just as potent.

Second initiation means all these formalities of Brahmana, Ksatriya et al.

Prabhupada says that the Mayor's wife must dress like the Mayor's wife.

I know a very nice devotee lady in Suth America. She is married to a senior admnistrator in the GBC structure and has to deal with many serving girls in organizing dinners etc.

She tells the devotees that her nature is to be a Nun praying in her little cell and working in the Nunnery garden with other simple girls but so all these formalities are a real burden.

Send us not on Whatsapp if you want to discuss details.

Thank you.


Don't go to India, go to Vrndavana!

🙂



Happy Vyasa Puja adored Gurudev!! today and forever!!!



HAPPY VYASA PUJA GURUDEVA!!! 🙏

AND HAPPY BIRTHAY!!! 🙏


Report month Narayana


Dear Gurudeva! Please accept our obeisances to Your merciful lotus feet! All glories be to Srila Prabhupada!!! and to you adored Gurudeva!!!


Please ask your lotus feet for forgiveness for the delay in my offering. I wanted to offer you a nice video. I thought it was better to give you what you asked for than my foolish words. It didn't turn out as well as I wanted but I tried my best. Apparently I have to schedule his "gifts" with more time and if I leave the body before. they are there ready.


thanks to our krishna I have recovered from the pain in my leg and arm and I can continue dancing for my lords Radha Govinda!!!


This is my little offering for you:

DANCE THEATER:


RADHA AND THE BEE:


https://youtu.be/Gnjj2gRdpV4


I recorded this dance at the end of November. The day of his vyasa Puja I spent editing this video and still couldn't finish it on time.

I learned that it takes time to edit and I have to do things with more time. I was just able to finish on his birthday, January 12. but I couldn't connect or go out because it rained the whole day! I uploaded it the day after his birthday and the signal was cut so I can only send these lines today.


I hope you like it Gurudev! I am ready to listen to any mistake. I would have liked to do it with a voiceover explaining some things before the dances. I am learning to edit.


The moment of dancing this Dance was so beautiful that when I finished... I said to myself... I'm done?? So fast??😆 I couldn't believe that something that seemed so difficult to do, could have felt so ecstatic! I am praying to have those feelings again.. to live that way..all the time.. I know that they are His blessings and I ask you to please pray for me to live giving the best of myself to others.


We read that you wished to offer Mr. Nrishimha noodles with sauce and beans on the day of His Vyasa puja, So Franco himself kneaded the noodles and we offered them to his team. As you know, frankly, there are few photos. So I couldn't take pictures of his ofrenda, but I wanted to tell him about it so he would know about Franco's service. His offering was: Noodles with sauce and pancakes with milk sweet.


I was thinking if at some point I could personally make an offering to you...but from the way I see our situation it seems that it is impossible for us to go to India...so I am going to take refuge ardently in your instructions, classes...and the wonderful memories with your association vapu. I don't want to dream anymore that we'll go because that's doing me wrong.


I always read your twitter messages by email and listen to your classes.


Thank you for being my beloved Gurumaharaja!!!


Please forgive any offense inadvertently committed in this letter.



His attempt of a disciple who wishes to please his lotus heart:

Radha Japa Prati Jalpa Devi Dasi


P.D : previous month summary:


We are very sorry to read that your body is bothering you so much... I think how I can help?...


I forgot to thank you for your beautiful photo that you sent me in a previous letter where you can see a beautiful sunrise in Vrndavan... very beautiful!!! Thanks a lot. I edited a video that dances 2020 and put that beautiful photo at the end:


https://youtu.be/UN5ukcORBfw I


I would like these photos of my attempted mother katyayani to be just for you, frank and gopal. Please

2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.


His classes are the water of my life and they ALWAYS help me a lot.


We keep reciting the entire Sanskrit bhagavad Gita on the auspicious day of Gita jayanti!!! Very Preety!!!

I still have mother katyayani there. (2021 2022). Please tell me if I should disarm them or leave them there under the trees😊

We went to the Adi Sakhi event.

I send you photos. And some videos:


https://youtu.be/d0yZAFmjRHA


https://youtu.be/05eJ-z2ubXs


Gopalito and I continue our association with japa together in the afternoon. I tell him to concentrate on his friends in Krsna's pictures: Krsba balarama subala madhumangala!! Let him think that he is playing with them... and he closes his little eyes and chants the holy name like this.

please accept obeisances of Franco and Gopal.

P.D. should i send the photos again? or could you see them? Gurudev? thank you adored Gurudeva eternally


HpS-ASA - Very long letter for us to read! Struggling with gorillas in the jungles of Tripura, India, but we went through it and got most of the content. Now we will look at the first dance link.

It is very nice that you are learning video editing!

. . . .


Awwk! The link won't open here in the jungle. We try later!!

Hari Bolo.

Piyari Mohan das reporte enero 2023

1 week, 5 days ago by piyari_mohan_das in Personal Sadhana Reports

Hare Krishna, Gurudeva,

Please accept my obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.


I wish you are ecstatic in your relationship with Srila Prabhupada and Krishna through his constant service to them.


Everything went well with this first academic year, I learned and applied. Now I am back in Cabildo with my family. These last days (January 2023) I have been able to be more regular when I get up (generally 6:10), even though it is not at 4:00, I am happy with the progress. I wash my mouth, my hands, and start my japa chant.


ASA - 🙂👍👍


I'm trying to improve my chanting, I started singing sitting down a few days ago, and it's also an achievement for me, I always walked while singing. I listen to Srila Prabhupada's japa chanting while doing the meditation, and today I put a picture of you in front of me. These are things that help, but still my chanting is not going very well, I rarely put my full attention on the mantra. I also write the ideas that come to my mind to silence her and thus continue singing.


I continue to study the Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam personally, noting down the excerpts that I find interesting. I try to learn English, but the time I dedicate to it is not much. At night we study with a group of devotees the Bhagavad gita and on other days the Srimad Bhagavatam and also Caitanya Caritamrita, lately this has been daily.


It frustrates me to have a bad memory, but I have not given up, I am generating a system of memorization of the verses of the Bhagavad gita, applying different techniques, and I think that little by little it is bearing fruit. I thought I was very smart, but I'm stupid.


I keep doing sankirtan, now more than last year. I distribute books here in Cabildo, and when I accompany my family to different places, I take the books and do sankirtan there.


I sincerely think that everything I experienced, due to the fact of giving up my medicines, is due to my offenses against the Vaisnavas. Krishna took me out to show me how bad I am and that I must learn to behave properly. And of course, everything that Krishna does is good, this has brought me more awareness of my anhartas and now I am fighting with them. Sometimes I have glimpses that I am not the body, little by little I begin to differentiate that I am not the mind.


Finally Gurudeva, prabhu Jagganath Caran did not reply to the letter that you asked me to send him, I imagine that now the responsibility of the case will pass to the new administration.


HpS - Yes. Write to the New President, J. G. Das with copy to us here.


I appreciate you very much, you are in my heart, and I know that we will always be connected.


your servant

piyari mohan das


HpS - We all hope you advance in devotional service.

It is the solution for all the problems in life.

We also hope that Krsna is giving superhuman strength and intelligence to devotees like Guru-govinda Devi Dasi et al.

Please send more news as it develops!!!

NEWS! New service in Iskcon Santiago, Chile, Sri Sri Gaura Nitai Mandir

Hare Krishna Maharaja!


PAMHO AGTSP!


I've read your "Kapi Dhvaja" dated January 6th, thank you for sharing your travel itinerary; I'm waiting for a chance that I have got to visit you in Mexico City, if is Krishna´s will. 


How amazing for me it's to imagine you doing the daily parikrama for the Radha-Kunda! Right now it's a cold time in and around Vrindavan, I think it's a short season, a microclimate. My obeisances to you and all your visitors and associates! Right now in Chile is summer time, but some days have been little cold and some strong rains in the big mountain Cordillera de los Andes.


I recently spoke to Maha Anandini Devi Dasi to request a service that will grant me credits so that I can move forward to get initiated with you, please Gurudeva. Mataji is currently in charge of coordinating this management and authorizing the service performed as valid, along together with the administrative commission. And they gave me service in the area of making garlands for the deities. The beginning is 5 induction classes where one is accompanied and directed by an expert mataji in the service, after those 5 sessions, that are also practical service because one is making the garlands under supervision, they will set me a day of the week in wich I'll be in charge of doing the service that day, which consists of making the garlands for Their Lordships one day before They use it. It's quite a challenge for me and I love it, it's a very artistic activity that requires a lot of creativity and sensitivity and neatness, and at the same time you can enjoy appreciating the beautiful shapes and the extraordinary combinations of colors and shades that the Supreme Artist, Krishna, puts in His flowers. I'm attaching photos with the first garlands I made this Monday and was used on Tuesday by Their Lordships Sri Sri Gaura Nitai and Srila Prabhupada.


Buck White - Aaaacha! Very professional. GN must feel very proud to wear them.

This work will capture Chile.


At Iskcon Chile a few weeks ago, your disciple Jagad-Guru Das took over as President. The other time I told him "I didn't vote for you, but, Oh yes! you are my President!"; and I made myself available to him to support him in whatever he need.


I haven't smoked cannabis for 4 months now; with the other 3 principles it's been much longer, a few years.


ASA - On behalf of your lungs, we thank you!


Since 2015 I have been reading Srila Prabhupada's books every day, even if it's only 2 pages every night. A few days ago I completed reading Srila Prabhupada's 3-volume extended version biography written by Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami. Srila Prabhupada's life is amazing, extraordinary, He is the most important man of the 20th Century and for the next thousands of years, ¡all glories to Srila Prabhupada! Now I'm reading "The Nectar of Instruction", and I want to highlight a quote from Srila Prabhupada that appears in the purport of text 1: "The frustration of material desires produces anger." And my comment is that knowing this one should raise one's desires towards Krishna and abandon material desires to be happy, and I think that achieving it's the most difficult, even being devotees of Sri Sri Radha-Krishna we will always have some desire that binds us to the material world, while we are in this conditioned existence.


HpS - When I heard this I could immediately apply it in so many situations and get free from anger.


Since December 24th I'm renting an apartment 4 blocks from the temple, it belongs to your disciple Arjuna Das. You and Bhakti Bushan Swami and only devotees and families of devotees have lived in this apartment, so it's the best place to live where I can be today, Krishna is very merciful to me and His devotees are also very good to me; all glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to H.H. Hanumatpresaka Swami!


During the last few weeks I've improved my sadhana a bit and I'm chanting at least 8-10 rounds daily and several days I've been able to complete all the 16 rounds of good quality.


I bid farewell eternally grateful for the shelter that you have given to me at your lotus feet, I hope to be able to advance a little more every day and someday to be able to do something useful for you and for Srila Prabhupada's movement, if is Krishna´s will.


Your aspiring servant,

Carlos Rold
