All Glories to A C Prabhupada, Sripada Maharaja and HpS Maharaja

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

Dandavat Pranam, Tasmei Gurve Namah!

Please accept my humble obeisanses unto Gurujis padmacharan that I could not drop in the airport on 22nd March, due to Manipurs full Holi (Goura festival for 5 days). I was full engaged in my daughters marriage ceremony and reception of her after 6 days of marriage with a big lunch with localities approximately 250 members.

Though several reminders to Dr. Sarda D D and Haridasa Maharaja, I could not get any information regarding Gurujis Imphal visit. This is one of the big gap among the disciples of Manipur.

Please advice me what is my responsible in future.

As my regular reading now I am reading the 10.13.24 last part of 10 Vol.1 (the portion of Brahmah stolen calfs and cowherds of Vrindavan for testing Krsna.

Yours fallen Servant,

Yamunesvara Das

HpS - Hare Krsna. Yes, we were very sorry not to get time with you when we were in Manipur, but your daughter's wedding was very nice to see. Really, when we are chanting our Japa for Srila Prabhupada, broadcasting his message, books, we are together.

Please, please write to us with news from Manipur! We put our news in the DTCs here and in the Kapi Dhvaja each two weeks.

Sankirtan!!!!!

krishna es mi refugio

Hare krishna guru maharaj, por favor acepte mis reverencias, todas las glorias a srila prabhupada. hace bastante tiempo no le escribía, le pido disculpas por ello.

HpS - TlgaSP! Pfanrh. Hace una semana responder a su carta, desculpa!

deseo resumir un poco este tiempo que he vivido

bueno, la ultima vez que lo vimos a usted fue en santiago de chile, yo venia de argentina, estaba viviendo en el templo, y le comente que volvi a chile por unos dolores en la espalda. luego de un tiempo hable con algunos doctores y me dijeron que tenia algo grave en la espalda, tenia 3 desviaciones distintas en la columna vertebral, los nombres son muy raros, pero el hecho es que mi columna vertebral no era saludable. los dolores impedian mi sankirtan y me sentia muy frustrado por no poder continuar viviendo en templos. ahora estoy en un tratamiento de kinesiologia, llevo algunos meses, estoy mejorando pero lentamente, no es algo facil.

me quedan algunos meses aun y ya podre estar mejor. los doctores decian que esto era algo que herede geneticamente de mi padre, y como tengo 28 años, estuve 28 años sin tratamiento. es por esto que volvi a vivir en la casa de mi madre, y comenzamos a cuidar de mi abuela que tiene 92 años.

HpS - Super! Cuida espiritual adelante de cuida material!

mi madre hoy en dia esta reviviendo su consciencia de krishna original, esta cantando algunas cuentas de japa mala, esta gradualmente abandonando la carne (creo que ser compasivo es muy favorable para ayudar a que crezca la semilla del bhakti en otra persona) y ha tenido la oportunidad de asistir a los programas del templo por la tarde. siento que krishna es tan sabio en los arreglos que hace en nuestras vidas. yo estuve viviendo 3 años en templos, entre chile, argentina y brasil, y ahora cuando mi madre y mi abuela realmente me necesitaban (por sufrimientos de la vida material) estoy aqui y puedo hacer todo lo que este a mi alcance para que recuerden a krishna...

debo ser sincero, y si bien, en esta adaptacion de volver a chile he disminuido bastante mi sadhana, en el templo era levantarse temprano a mangal artik, salir a sankirtan, volver y el prasada estaba listo, luego leer un poco y asistir al programa de la tarde. aqui hay que intentar acomodar todo para tener un tiempo de meditacion. pero estoy intentando mucho salir a flote. por muchos dias no he podido cantar la cuenta minima de rondas, pero las guardo para el dia siguiente.

aca tengo un altar, le cocino a la familia, de vez en cuando distribuyo libros, y realizo mi actividad favorita que es predicarle a las personas "nuevas" en el movimiento.

estos 3 años que vivi en templos son una base estable para mi en cuanto a mi consciencia, y agradezco que krishna me permita ver a mi abuela de 92 años, y asi intentar realizar que el cuerpo material esta lleno de miserias... tambien agradezco que mi madre este reviviendo su consciencia, ya que constantemente hablamos de krishna y como ella me pregunta cosas me utiliza en servicio... espero mejorar de salud para estar mas activo en la predica, pero tambien espero dia a dia saber utilizar este cuerpo para recordar y servir a krishna en cualquier lugar y circunstancia

su humilde aspirante a sirviente mandara sakha das

HpS - Muy bien!!!

El Srimad Bhagavatam presenta muchas situaciones variadas de predicación y práctica de la conciencia de Krishna. Obviamente, necesitamos escucharlos para avanzar en nuestro KC ... Adau sraddha ... Entonces, tu historia y tu situación parecen muy agradables. ¡Adelante! Aumenta tu asociación con Srila Prabhupada y los devotos. Espera despues de esta situacion va a pasar por otro nuevo.

¡Envía más noticias en el futuro!

Hare Krishna Gurumaharaja :

Please Receive my Respefull and Humble Obeisances.

Gurumaharaja, thank you very much for your Last answer, regarding to m Gaura Gadadhara Dasi she is very good in the Holy Dham, she is doing a lot of parikrama, she already did the safary with disciples of HH Jayapataca Swami, now she went to Vrindavan and then to many holy places, she is traveling with a good group of devotees, her health is very good and she feels happy visiting so many holy places. 

Gurumaharaja, I asked flight ticket to Europe and it's expensive, my budget can not cover it, as well today I really analize my situation, I feel so tired, I need to rest, so I'm thinking that it would be good if I come back to Perú to stay in Chosica, there I have asociation of devotees, mangala artik everyday with Radha Madhana Vihari, service, I can go to Wilson Temple, do sankirtan, book distribution, I would like to study in workshops of puppets, learn to play armonium, finish my course of Bhakti Sastri with prabhu Laksman, as well I can find there some devotees to do show puppets, kirtan maybe little dance and theater. I have been feeling so bad because I don't have enought purity to stay in Holy Dham, but at same time I realize that the weather is so dificult and in this condition I can not do any service, so I think its better to go to Chosica. Please give me your opinión.

HpS - AGTSP. Paoho. First time I went to India, Vraja, it was also very, very difficult for my body. I did a lot of austerity but had to come back. I also got experiences that have been great assets all my life in devotional service. Sounds like it is the same for you. Ask devotees who know your situation in more detail than we do, but seems like a plan to try staying in Chosica might be nice. In the end if Krsna wants us to leave these bodies then we will find no refuge for them in any place in the material universe, but He is nice person so trying to live according to his plan as you are doing, of course, your future should be bright.

I'm infinitely thankful for your kindness of always listening me, and I'm so grateful that I have the good fortune of having your guidance. Thank you very much. 

Your Servant :

Divya Dristi DD.

Dear Guru Maharaja:

All the Glories to Sri Sri Radha Krsna

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

All the glories to you

Please accept my humble obeisances

I hope you are fine Gurudeva, I have a some questions.

Once I heard: "The blessings of the spiritual master are more powerful than our own effort to advance"

How can I get your blessings to advance?

HpS - Do you want to meet Srila Prabhupada in person? Yes? You have our blessings (but, Oooof!, could be very, frightening). 😀

How can we deepen our Guru-Disciple relationship?

HpS - In one million different ways. The whole Srimad Bhagavatam is about that. Basically by following instructions. Good, better rounds, four principles, improve your Sankirtan, book distribution. Seeing how to engage devotees, others in your Sankirtan.

How can I improve my service?

HpS - There is no method really. Your service comes straight from the heart. You just have to use all the mercy Krsna sends to advance. You do it.

Is it good for our spiritual life to associate with devotees of other missions or sampradayas? What do I have to observe? What do I have to take into account?

HpS - Many details, but NOI 4, 5, 6, give very, very good basis!


Your aspirant servant

Kirtida Devi Dasi

HpS - Thank you!!!!!! See you in a few weeks!!!! !!! I guess there is a BsAs in Goloka also!

Operation SOS (save our self) and SOF (save our family)

6 days, 10 hours ago by bhaktabigfoot in Personal Sadhana Reports

Dear Maharaj,

PAMHO

AGTSP

Hare Krishna,

It's been just over a week since returning from Boise and having your, Radha-Bunkbhari, SP, and devotees darshan. Thank you very much for you association Maharaj, we hope we were able to do some service and not be to much of a nuscience. We hope to grow into a capable devotee/disciple and serve nicely.

ASA - Us also!

As of right now moving to Boise isn't happening, we are trying to concentrate on our family financial situation at the moment and some other things. So we will see what Krsna arranges. Focusing on Operation SOS, then we wont have to speculate, gamble. BOOM! No blind faith, its condemned! Work on what we have now.

Operation SOS

Since our return we are doing daily (except Saturday) SB with my mother. I call her each day at 7:10am and we go to about 7:40am.

HpS - SUper! Have fun. Read and discuss as you like! Of course, some artificial forces, but you know that is necessary for learning any sport.

You have inspired us to do SB study with someone instead of only listening to SP SB lectures. Its been really nice and already we are seeing some advancement. We have made some little adjustments on how we go about using the time and it's working nicely. Then each Saturday we will be joining your Gotomeeting SB class!

HpS - We see you. . . <-

FMP -getting up at 3:30am PST, MA, Guru-astaka, 16 rounds. We are praying to Guru & Gauranga for nice rounds and the ability to chant Hare Krishna MM without offenses. We are experiencing ups and downs but in general progress is there. 4 regs are going strong. Ideas are flowing so rapidly about Sankirtan activities, but we are working on slowing down and take one step at a time. K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid), Op SOS first.

If we may please, We would like to ask the blessing of your disciples Maharaj, we humble request they bless us that we may also become a disciple of Your Holiness. Please bless us that we may do some nice service in your honor, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Srila Prabhpada's honor and find our service in Lord Chaitanya's Sankirtan movement.

Operation SOF

Kids are reading 15 mins daily from a SP book they choose. They read knowing they are going to teach me what they read each day. This is from your encouragement to read as if we are going to teach what we read. I was trying to get the kids up for MA for a time being but it seems to me that will have to wait until Alicia is consistently attending. That's ok (note to self 😁)

Alicia - we are reading 15 mins each evening. She chose what we would read and she chose CC 😳. We just received CC at this past Guara Purnima. I was a little hesitant to start off with something so big but I didn't want to discourage so we are going with the flow. It's going nicely. Right now besides that we are just trying to be encouraging her about rounds and getting up to chant them in the morning before work, maybe MA.

HpS - CC is super, but maybe a little to much cosmology in the beginning. Don't hesitate to skip the first few chapters and come to Lord Caitanya's birth...

Please please forgive us our any offense we made while in Boise or any offenses other wise.

Haribol!

Your aspiring to aspire servent,

Bhakta Natha, Big Foot, Nathen

PS: Weed whipers Ki Jaya! 😆

HpS - SOrry it has taken so long to answer this letter. We will talk more about this in today's DTC.
