Personal Update 2020

Hare Krishna Maharaj,

PAMHO. AGTSP.

I hope this email finds you well. Hope your health is progressing.

HpS - Just like you our health is 'progressing' to the crematorium. Puff! Better to 'jump ship'.

It’s been a while since I’ve “checked in”. As far as new news- I started a new job about a month ago and basically focusing on that.

ASA - Banana bowler?

I had an arranged proposal from a devotee from the UK and it didn’t work out for reasons beyond my understanding. It was an intense reunion, very emotionally fueled. Perhaps we had some unresolved karma to burn through. All the astrologers said we were a good match though which made it more disappointing. I’m trying to get through it and keep faith that Krishna has someone better in store.

ASA - Krsna is a jealous lover.

I’m working on progressing my Sadhana. Spending more time with devotees and cooking and offering. Morning program is steady every day. Chanting isn’t steady but its good when it is. I've recently confronted my feelings of being distant to SP. I’m not sure why that it is but ive read books by SP as well as his disciples to get a better understanding and feel close. And at the end of the day – I feel like he’s just not accepting me. This is a harsh feeling to confront but I’d like to try to do everything to help me change my mindset. Even when I see his Murtis at the temple, it feels like he’s disappointed in me.

HpS - Hmmm? He is very merciful. We are ashamed how much we have abused his mercy and we TRY to be better. Part of it is not that we are arrogant, but that we are just not well educated. THE WITCH tricks us.

O.K. Back at it. "Love is not love that bends with the remover to remove, but it is an ever fixed star to each wandering bark whose depth is taken but worth unknown," Old ENglish. Anon amouse!

So in a nutshell- there’s been lots going on and my mind is everywhere but I’m praying to be eagerly engaged in service and thoughts of Hari. I pray everyday for clarity and signs. I keep in touch with my godbrothers and we’re all gripping to fight against maya. It’s a struggle.

I pray for your protection and also pray for guidance.

Thank you for your mercy maharaj.

Your struggling/aspiring servant,

Sugopi dd 

HpS - Best wishes!!! Get the secret code from the Letters to the Editor in the Kapi Dhvaja to get more attention to letters.

Hare Krishna Guru Maharaj,

HpS - Just like yours!!! 😁

Today we read SB 3.21.3 . Class was given by HG Ramanuja Prabhu.

Yesterday we distributed face masks and prasadam at a place named Mayaang Imphal . We distributed copies of NOI which we printed last time with the money that Guru Maharaj had left with us for printing 2000copies.

ASA - We have died and gone to heaven!

Your mercy is immense dear Guru Maharaj.....it has overflown my begging bowl.

ASA - Get another one for your cat, dog, aunt, friends...

I am so fallen and so unqualified yet ,dear Guru Maharaj ...You have been so merciful to all of us here. We long for Your blissful darshan each day....

My father finally turned vegetarian few days back....it is so difficult for Manipuris to give up fish eating....so unfortunate for all of us. Since the last 3 days father and I read the BG every evening. He took out The Gita published by Gita press, Gorakhpur. Then I asked father if both of us could read Srila Prabhupada's BG As it is....( I had to meditate hard on Srila Prabhupada and Guru Maharaj ..before requesting father about this.... it was always difficult to convince father...) . Then father happily agreed...so we continue reading Srila Prabhupada's BG every evening since then . Father is enjoying these sessions and insists that we read every day.

Yesterday he asked about CC. I was literally shocked...never expected of father this... Today on Mohini ekadasi father got a set of CC which we bought from one of the devotees....wanted to give mine ...but father again insisted he would like to have a personal copy.... We plan to read CC with father every Sunday...kindly help us dear Guru Maharaj.

ASA - Us help you!!!! Hare Krsna! This has gone way "beyond our pay scale". Just chant Hare Krsna when the waves come and try to hold on to Krsna's canoe!!

Guru Maharaj....you have given me everything....I do not have words to thank you ....I feel happy....at the same time my heart is heavy ...

Last time Guru Maharaj asked the 3 leading causes of death in US. Heart diseases ranks first followed by Cancer and Chronic Respiratory diseases. Incidence of cancer is on the rise here too in India.... lost mother 5 years back due to cancer. I feel she would have been happy to see the change in father's spiritual consciousness now. Thank you Guru Maharaj.

ASA - Thank you. We live by hearing news from Manipura. We saw one analysis that said that first killer was tobacco, then bad eating/exercise, then alcohol. Of course, the doctor says, "Heart disease", but what is the cause of the heart disease?? Interesting.

Your insignificant servant,

Sarada Gaurangi DD

ASA -- We hope your Sankirtan absorbs you 100%!!!! What does Manipur smell like??

[KDPC] From Mar del Plata Still Alive

1 week, 6 days ago by bhaktanicasio in Personal Sadhana Reports

Hare Krishna Gurudev,

Please accept my humble obeisances,

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada,

Having access to this blog is a huge mercy!! Obeisances unto you and Prahlada Nrisimha Prabhu!!

As you say, living next to nature connected to the world is the perfect scenario in the material world. This Pandemia, was Karuna for us, gave us the time to do work we wanted to do since long ago in the Ayurvedic field.

16 R, 4 P ok. Sometimes very good sadhana, sometimes good and sometimes survival mood. We have to improve deity worship and kirtan. Tendency is going towards sastra, but that makes us very analytical and hard-hearted.

HpS - ASA ---- Srila Prabhupada says that one cannot understand SB unless he worships the Deity, NOD!

We can say we have peace of mind, little anxieties here and there, but nothing serious. We can realize they are only because of material desires, mind wandering everywhere besides Krishna rupa. What SP explains in his purport to BG 4.10, the three stages of material consciousness.

HpS = Raga, bhaya, krodha!

We can not get to nista-ruci. What is the best way to reach to that stage of Bhakti yoga? We have kind of this riven cloud feeling (BG 6.38).

HpS - Wars are not won by good looking, well dressed, healthy soldiers. Wars are won by wounded, stupid soldiers, who don't give up. They just keep on coming back, following orders the best they can! NOI 3

Services: spiritual practice, take care of wife and two children, being a good neighbour at Sri Govardhan, Gurukula project (next letter), member of Junta Nacional iskcon Argentina, member of the organizing committee for Mar del Plata Ratha Yatra (Jan 2021).

HpS - You have earned an immortal banana tree in Nabadvipa?? ! How's THE DOG?????

Thank you so much Gurudev,

Never found a better technology than this Krisna Consciousness process,

Your humble servant,

Nikunja Bihari das.


Hare Krishna Gurudev,

Por favor acepte mis humildes reverencias,

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada,

Tener acceso a este blog es una gran misericordia !! ¡Reverencias a usted y a Prahlada Nrismiha Prabhu!

Como usted dice, vivir al lado de la naturaleza conectada con el mundo es el escenario perfecto en el mundo material. Esta Pandemia, fue Karuna para nosotros, nos dio el tiempo para hacer el trabajo que queríamos hacer desde hace mucho tiempo en el campo ayurvédico.

16 R, 4 P ok. A veces muy buen sadhana, a veces bueno y otras veces en modo de supervivencia. Tenemos que mejorar la adoracion a la deidad y el kirtan. La tendencia se dirige hacia Sastra, pero eso nos hace muy analíticos y duros de corazón.

Puedo decir que tengo tranquilidad, pocas ansiedades aquí y allá, pero nada serio. Puedo darme cuenta de que son solo por deseos materiales, la mente vagando por todas partes excepto en Krishna rupa. Lo que SP explica en su significado para BG 4.10, las tres etapas de la conciencia material.

No podemos llegar a nista-ruci. ¿Cuál es la mejor manera de llegar a esa etapa del Bhakti Yoga? Tenemos este tipo de sensación de nube dispersa (BG 6.38).

Servicios: práctica espiritual, cuidar a la esposa y dos hijos, ser un buen vecino en Sri Govardhan, proyecto Gurukula (próxima carta), miembro de la Junta Nacional iskcon Argentina, miembro del comité organizador de Mar del Plata Ratha Yatra (enero de 2021) .

Muchas gracias Gurudev,

Nunca encontré una tecnología mejor que este proceso de Conciencia de Krisna,

Su humilde sirviente,

Nikunja Bihari das.


Annual Reports

1 week, 6 days ago by hps in Personal Sadhana Reports

AGTSP! Paoho.

Ooof! We have stomach ache.

We are trying to live properly but so many challenges. Just like you all, no? Yes, 4-principles grossly. Subtlely we are not satisfied with our quantity, type and time of eating!

16-nice rounds! Yes.... struggle!

We have been trying to answer the Annual Reports. Thirs class answering from Third Class Guru, AGTSP! but for some of them the robot doesn't let us answer, or it answers without our comments. Achh. We will talk to Prahlada and see if he can help.

Thank you.

Mataji's Report in the Blog will not Answer!

Seems that maybe if the Protector of Ladies has the same e-mail address the Robot rejects it.

Hare Krishna Gurudeva

Please accept my humble obeisances

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada

2019 was a year to take decisions about my life. I decided to do a service in the pujari for Radha Madhana Vihari and to participate in Mangala Aratik program, once a week. At home, I was trying to participate in the FMP program. All this things helped me to increase my faith, determination, trust and love to Radha Krishna. I always talk with Krishna about my troubles and doubts. I know that He listen to me because I always find an answer. I'm trying to develop the desire to wish that the will of the Lord be done. This helped me a lot to have detachment from the result.

I continue doing therapies with ghee lighters and yoga mantras. This is helping people who need it a lot. And it is a good stimulus to inquire about God. Therefore, I'm considering your recommendations: sadhana (in Brahma Muhurta), 16 good rounds and lecture of the Sastras.

Dear Gurudeva, I finish this year with the security and tranquility of have found my way. When you return to Peru, I would like to talk you more about this realization.

Thanks a lot for accepting me as your disciple and please, forgive all my offenses.

Your most fallen servant,

Tarangaksi Devi Dasi

HpS - Super!!!! Thank you so much.... You can see that we are a Second or Third class Guru. Take us so long to do this service of answering letters. Fortunately Srila Prabhupada is taking personal interest in your spiritual development. We are all O.k.

Didn't get back to Lima!!! Maybe we can discuss some of your realizations in this Blog with the Kapi Dhvaja Priority Code from the Kapi Dhvaja!!!!!!
