Report Month of Purusottama

4 days, 12 hours ago by radhadance in Personal Sadhana Reports

Adored and remembered Gurumaharaja,

Please accept my respectful reverences to your marvelous lotus feet, my refuge in this kali yuga, all the glories to Srila Prabhupada, all the glories to Griste Radamaha Phijari!

I wish that this letter finds you in good health and happy in your marvelous conscience of Krsna. I wish with all my heart to receive your blessings so that in this month of Kartika, I would be able to advance in my conscience of sriramodha.

HpS - What is sriramodha?

Last month I forgot to request your wonderful blessings but I know that it is thanks to you that I get up to mangalarti and have your blessing to always remember Krsna. I ask you to have us in your prayers in order to be able to keep on purifying our existence and reach the yearning goal of life.

Gopal

This month Gopalito started to wake up early to do Mangalarti with me! I am very happy for this. He drew the altars of Mayapur since we watched many times the altars of Mayapur together. Since then he wants to open the paper curtains and listen to me singing. It is the "puyarati" He is also ready to make gorartik and to open and close the curtains of panchagati and sinisinhared.

In the morning he requested me strongly to read the four books: Nectar of Prabhupada, Srimad Bhagavatam, the teachings of Queen Kunti and Upadesamrta. Then we sing Govindam ari purusam, Sri nama kirtan and Guru Bandana. And these days we are also singing Sri Damodarastakam. Gopal is not quiet until we finish all this and it makes me very happy to see that he is so strictly fulfilling everything.

We are also making Exercises with Hanuman. He wants to make exercises with you, Guru Maharaha and when he sees me rehearsing Manipur he acts as my teacher and "directs" me on how to dance. He has a very strong character but inspires me a lot. This month he made wonderful things with playdough. He molded the six Goswamis just the day of the disappearance of Raghunatha bhata goswami, Raghunatha das goswami and krsnadas kraviraja goswami. He also molded Srila Prabhupada!! It was a huge happiness for me.

Next day he molded you Guru Maharaja and Bhakti Thirta Swami. It was unbelievable because he does everything on his own initiative. In fact every day he makes new and wonderful things. He astonishes us with his abilities. And although he does not allow me to sing and dance during the day, I have faith that same as since in the past he did not get up for mangalarti he will allow me to do it in the future.

He is learning the mantras to grow up. He made Krna Balaram of playdough similar to a Krsna Balaram sent to me by a devotee living in Vrindavan. Then he harvested blackberries and offered them to his playdough deities!!

I am very happy to know that Prabhu Nitai Gaurasundara is fine and recovering.


Radha Dance Academy

In Radhastami I prepared two presentations of the dance school. I am sending here photos to you. What do you think of them? I put "Dance, theather and culture of India". Theater, since when I was thirteen I studied theater with some famous actors in Lima at the Charles Chaplin Academy. I was always taking acting courses. I wanted to study theater as a career but my father didn´t want. He preferred that I studied a career at the university. I chose Communication Sciences which is very alike since I also like to write. Fortunately at the university I also took a free course of theater and some blocks from the university I used to go with devotees to rehearse dance for the temple. So all this was useful for me with the grace of Krnsa.

When I was four or five years old I studied ballet and when I went to college I thought to keep on with ballet and did it, but I realized that Indian dance embodied the two arts which I loved the most: dance and theater, so it was perfect for me!!!  I was so engaged in acting that I participated in a tv drama as extra. I wanted to keep on acting but being a devotee I realized what is bad of being an actress in Peru so I left it.

HpS - Yes, one Yamjuna Devi Dasi told us that she had to kiss men she didn't know. 😛

But it is funny that my first service in the movement of Srila Prabhupada was to perform in "The truth and the Beauty". Y performed the role of Cintamani. Krna pleases His devotees!!

So for all this I included "Theater" as title for the dance school, this is why it is ""Dance, Theater and Culture of India.

Thanks Guru Maharaja for engaging your valuable time in reading this letter. Please forgive whatever offense I may have committed here unknowingly. 

Your intent of disciple who always remember you giving true life to our life, wishing to please your beautiful and noble heart.

Radha japa prati jalpa devi dasi

Please accept reverences of Franco who always remember the teachings which I tell him from You and from Gopalito who also always remembers you. In the globe of the world he points at USA and says: "Hanuman was born there". When he sees a plane he remembers that you went to Peru and when he watches the video of exercises he says "Hanuman went to China to make exercise".

HpS - Our respects to Franco!!! Is he doing any sculpture??


Personal Sadhana Report

All Glories to Sri Sri Guru Parampara,

H. H. HpS Maharaja! Dandavat Pranam!

H. H. B. S. Damodar Swami, Ki Jai! Srila Prabhupada, Ki Jai!

Radha Krsna Ki Jay, Gouranga Mahaprabhu Ki Jay, Goura Bhakta Vrinda Ki Jay

Hare Krsna! Please accept my humble obeisances unto Sri Guruji Maharaja’s Padama Charan that I am so happy to get Guruji Maharaja's reply so soon, and it is the same address written not to write in this blog.

My e-mail address is : okram .... gmail. HpS - Thank you. We just checked. This is the one we have.

Whatsapp No. 878......./857....... HpS - I tried both these numbers with "91" before them and they don't show a whatsapp account???

The Murtis (Chitrabot) I worship are Radha-Krsna with Gopis, Panchatatva, Jaganath-Subhadra-Balabadra, Three Gurus : Prbhupada Maharaja-Sripada Maharaja-HpS Maharaja. The pictures are taken out in the last Gurujis Manipur visit and the flower is Siroi Lily of Manipur, which is not available in other parts of the world.

The marriage ceremony of my son will be held on Friday, the 27th Nov. 2020. I am praying Guruji's asirbat for both of them in their new family life.

HpS - 🙂 Marriage is an austerity undertaken by husband and wife for their mutual spiritual advancement. Wake up!

I will continue to ask about the Mantra, Gayathri, Devotional Service, fruitless service to other devotees also. When chanting I ask myself whether Sri Krsna is listening and receiving my simple mangal aarati service. He is the father of fatherless, motherless, innocents. He saves Prahalad Maharaj, Dhruva Maharaja etc. so as to save me from this sinful Maya samsara.

HpS - He is listening if we are asking to be free from selfish motives. Do we concern ouselves with marriages, family, nation because they make us happy? Do we really do them for the satisfaction of others? Does a woman raise her children for their well being or because she wants them to take care of her when she is old?

Only Krsna..... has the qualities that inspire our selfless service. That is natural. Jaya! You are doing such good for others. Tell us about your readings. Take notes of things that interest you and post them here.

I hope we can get the whatsapp connection.

I am not expert in attaching photos from other files, mobile etc., excuse me.

Yours fallen servant

Yamunesvara Das

HpS - Jaya! Jaya! Srila Prabhupada!

New projects

Hare Krishna dear Gurumaharaja.

Pamho.

AGTSP.

Because the pandemic, this year we haven't had the Bhakti sastri course in Campina Grande and we decided to move to Cordoba, little far away from cities. Here it's a very nice place. We are planning to build an institute in order to provide another space to facilitate the education in ISKCON. Maharaja Dhavantari accepted that every other year we can do the Jaladuta Institute here, I mean, one year here, one year in Brasil. It would be very nice if you can come here to visit us Gurudev.

Madhavendra, Yasoda (and lalita) and another couple are planning to move here with us at the end of december.

Yesteday, we have started the MIHE Bhakti-vedanta course (4 years). Our first teacher is Bhakti-prabhava swami. I would like to ask you blessing in order I can have more intelligence and devotion to the Srimad Bhagavatam.

HpS - Hare Krsna.

My sadhana (Japa and mangala-arati) are going a little bit complicated because all our movement and changes. I'm trying to improve my self. I'm reading the Vrndavana-mahimamrta which is wondelful. Also, I'm learning the verses, analogies and comment on the 7 canto for the Bhaktivedanta course.

Your servant,

Devaki-nandana das.

HpS - ASA -- Are there any recordings of the presentations we made for the GBC College? They we something we hoped to post on youtube etc. Compilation of our Management knowledge.

Thank you so much for writing. Respects to everyone.

I hope the Bh. Ved. course is good.

We are resigning from the Ministry of Education and Latin American Regional GBC at the end of this year. We will certainly work as we can as advisors.

Really this world is like a movie projected on a screen. It is to cure us of our insanity.

Chant Hare Krsna, Hare Rama, as much as you can, and everything else will develop naturally, plans, Sastric knowledge.



ANSWER TO LAST LETTER

6 days, 12 hours ago by natyelligarza_108 in Personal Sadhana Reports

HARE KRISHNA HARE RAMA!!

¡All Glories To Srila Prabhupada!

¡Please accept my most humble obeisances at your lotus feet!

HpS/ASA - Locust feet. AgtSP!

This is my answer to the last letter, taking the opportunity to give my sadhana report. 16 rounds and 4 principles. ¡Nice rounds! Working hard in job, always giving prasad to my co-workers, much service in temple, taking care of Tulasi (nice growing), memorizing verses of Bhagavd-Gita and restart the translation service, now helping the GVT on a publication of grihastha education. Still serving in kitchen and Srila Prabhupada 🙏

Now I attach some pictures of last home program. I'm scheduling another program in fifteen days, will try to make it at my mother´s house so they can have the opportunity of devotees´s association. I also had the opportunity to celebrate my birthday in very nice association.

You asked for the age of Vraja Mohan Das, he is 23 years old. These days we were talking about many many things of Ghrihastha life, and the purpose to be in association: taking care of our spiritual life, servig Srila Prabhupada. Not talking about marriage yet, but keeping in mind your instruction: second initiation for both.

Thanks so much for evertything Guru Maharaja.

Your eternal fallen aspirant: Bhaktin Natyelli.

¡¡Radheee Radheeee!!

ASA - Achaa! What is "GVT"????
