Hare Krsna, AGTSP, PAMHO
It has been a year since I moved out the ISKCON Chicago temple, yes, I did some "progress", can’t complain. I teach piano to over 25 students currently (if teaching fine arts can be considered brahminical), and I spend the rest of my time between two part time jobs, my college classes and looking for grad schools. However, things does not unfold always the way I plan, and that is frustrating. I neglected quite a bit my sadhana and overall spiritual health for the sake of moving as fast as possible in the race of getting some “social status” that is far from manifesting soon. Lately, after getting some life punches, I turned back to Krsna for shelter. It has been such a thrilling experience. Listening to kirtans and some classes are enough to make hair stand on end and make me remember sweeter times with devotees.
No preaching, just getting my things done, but after this reawakening, I am visiting Kishore Kishori more often, reading sastra alone on daily basis and with devotees on Saturdays and chanting japa the best I can, trying to get back on track. I am also writing you this letter after a while.
A couple of friends told me that they saw you in Tennessee. They said you were as usual, happily engaged in the transcendental loving service of Krsna. That brought happiness to my heart. Thanks for everything you do Gurudev.
