2 weeks, 1 day ago by rukmini in Personal Sadhana Reports

Dear /respected Hanumat Preshak Swami

Our humble obeisances( as far as we can bend)

Glories to His Divine Grace!

There are couple of initiating gurus coming to Bali. Ramai Swami is here now and Kavicandra Swami.

The recommendation letter and disciple course paper was attached to letter , Wang Pan, July ,Bali ,Indonesia.

HpS - Yes, yes. We can't see the attachments until after we send the letters.

We will be giving class for Janmastami and Vyasa puja, H. H. Ramai Swami will be there in that temple. I think I can talk to him about chanting on her beads.

HpS - We got drowned in the festival work here. Guests. Classes.

Internet ceremony will be okay. Let us know the time and date and we will be vigilant/standby.

Yours, in service of His Divine Grace and Vaishnavas,

Narayan pandit das and Bht.Wang Pan

HpS - We see that there is another letter from your good selves.

We look at that.

Hare Krishna, dear gurudeva. Pamho, AGTSP!

I haven't written to you for a long time.

I'm pretty lazy for this.

In any case, I feel that I am always in your association through various means such as

the Full Morning Service;

the translations of the Bhagavatam workshop every Saturday morning;

listening to your recorded SB classes every morning, etc.

And now especially with my humble participation with the Boex sub commission with P. Atul krsna and Dhruva.

HpS - Awwwk! We missed the meeting today!!

It is a great honor to work with such high ISKCON personalities.

I really don't contribute much, [Yet] but I'm trying to take advantage of this great mercy of yours to learn a little.

Just yesterday P. Atul asked me to send my qualifications in the educational field, which are quite good, to P. Tapan Misra, ISKCON Minister of Education.

I still haven't been able to complete my master's thesis due to lack of resources, but someday, someday.

My resume is pretty good.

Perhaps one day I can carry out the invitation that you constantly make to go to Houston, or another place in USA, to continue training and contribute a bit of my experience as a teacher in ISKCON and in the prestigious schools that I taught in the past, such as the Marist schools and the Newton Collegue de la Molina, a well-known bilingual school in a high-class area in Lima-Peru.

ASA - Would be great for The Raman Reti Devi Dasi also. Is she learning English???

My personal projects, now of course with my dear wife Raman reti devi dasi, I hope they are fulfilled.

We always dream of getting a proper little house to have a small preaching center where we can do programs and distribute prasadam, books and philosophy evening

ASA - Well if it does not happen here it will happen in Vrndavana or Nabadvipa in your next life.

Also, work more with the municipality.

Precisely, we talked informally on the street with an old friend of the devotees about cultural projects for Chosica and surroundings.

He has a position in the sub-management of education and culture and we share ideas, which by the way are very similar.

For this reason, we plan to resume our NGO project to have a platform to interact with the municipality.

Of course, closely linked with ISKCON Chosica.

  1. Who am I,
  2. who are we,
  3. plans,
  4. resources.

I hope it works if Krishna wants.

I have a great desire to do something else. As an ISKCON teacher I think I'm doing pretty well. I have daily sastric study classes and I am regularly invited to teach at ISKCON Chosica and I also taught in Miraflores and recently at the Bhakta Enrique preaching center.

HpS - What has happened with Jana pavana Das???

The sadhana with my wife is still very good, and also the almost weekly distribution of prasadam to acquaintances in the village.

Sometimes cookies,

sometimes wonderful little balls,

sometimes kekitos,


We try to improve our altar as well. Krishna ruci prabhu is making little shoes for our Deities. So many beautiful things can be done in Krishna consciousness. I really like when Prabhupada talks about the "progressive devotee." The opposite of what I call "the Hare Krishna comfort zone": I dedicate myself to chanting my yapa, doing my prasadan, going to the temple for holidays, etc. For many it may work just like that. But, I think you can always do more. In the end, everyone is different.

Finally, I would like to ask you to please help me so that I can take the Bhakti Vaibhava exam.

I believe I have enough experience to pass that exam so that I can also formally teach the course with the case requirements.

HpS - Just ask Atul K. Das. They have a Summative exam system. Maybe you and Karuna could just become study partners and get it done.

Gandharva prabhu made an extraordinary effort to make us an examination center, but there were some unattainable requirements, such as having a somewhat high number of students.

I have a group of old students that would be very good if they had the course formally.

Another request is that they soften the requirements for the professors of other courses such as the facilitation courses, which are three, the communications course, and others. It is really cumbersome what they ask for.

HpS - Yes, that seems so to me, but I have nothing to do with those courses.

I am a well trained teacher within and outside of ISKCON and could very well facilitate those courses and train other devotees to do so in due course.

I would like to train the devotees-to-be teachers so as not to be dependent on devotees who have to come from abroad with the high budget that is needed for that.

HpS - This is all very, very nice, and nice for others like you also.

Swami Atul is rather busy. Maybe Dhruva is a little more accessible.

Present these things to them and they can help get things rolling. Don't have to do everything at one time.

One little success makes the next projects much easier, no?

These are some ideas that I wanted to share with you. Hopefully one day I can come visit you and spend some time with you drinking in your wisdom to become a humble bearer of your legacy as one aspect of Srila Prabhupada's legacy of course.

HpS - ASA --- I have seen that Krsna can arrange anything. He can arrange anything.

Thank you very much for always being there for me. Thank you very much for his mercy on this foolish disciple of his.

His servant,

Laksmana-agaja das

Visiting Boise for Rath Yatra

Hare Krishna, Guru Maharaj. Dandavat Pranams. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am chanting 16 rounds and following the regulative principles.

HpS/ASA - Me too! AgtSP!!!!

Janmashtami at the Atlanta temple went really well.

ASA - 20,000 plates of Prasadam?

We are trying to worship our Paramananda Gaura Nitai very nicely. Vishaka dresses them beautifully everyday (Attached picture - Orange dress today).

ASA - They must be very proud. They must be showing off how nicely They are dressed to everyone in the area, Nabadvipa.

We are currently in San Francisco at some devotees friend's house. They just had their Gaura Nitai deities (attached picture - green dress and taller) installed at their home by H. G. Vaisesika Prabhu. He gave them the name Parama Karuna Nitai Gaura.

HpS - I took first initiation in the same letter where he took 2nd initiation. We were in the San Francisco Temple, 455 Valencia St. together.

I have a couple of Tava Pache Pache books and was planning on presenting one to Vaisesika Prabhu, but my hosts told me that He already had one. I will anyway try to give him one if He doesn't have it.

HpS - He is excellent scholar and if he has one he would know to whom to give the second.

We will be celebrating Radhashtami at ISV.

We have made an on-the-fly plan to visit Boise for the Rath Yatra. So excited to meet You during the Rath Yatra Guru Maharaj. Boise Rath yatra was my first Rath Yatra in the US in 2018.

ASA - Wow! Jagannatha Baladeva and Subhadra will be delighted to see you!

Eagerly awaiting to get Your association Guru Maharaj.

Your humble servant

Sri Rama Krishna Das

HpS - Hope you got connection with Niti-sara Das for accommodation and service.

Nos rompimos una pierna

3 weeks, 3 days ago by manjari.devi.dasi. in Personal Sadhana Reports

Haré Krishna, querido Maharah

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada

Todas las glorias a usted

Por favor acepte mi sugerencias a sus pies de loto

Con su respuesta al anterior carta y asistir a los programas de Mangala-arti uno o dos días semanales, escribe una solución y me compré una bicicleta. Pero a veces cuando uno planea una cosa sale otra totalmente diferente y al día siguiente me rompí la pierna ( Fractura de Tibia y ruptura de ligamento que une la tibia con la rótula).

Me caí una noche en el transporte público de la ciudad, el dolor se agravó a grandes horas de la noche, por lo que en la mañana busque un hospital. En mi primer hospital me iban a internar tres o cuatro semanas pero por miedo a la dieta del hospital y demas, fui a otro hospital en dónde me empezaron la pierna. 5 Días después me pusieron una especie de rodillera, haciendo un poco más fácil y desplazamiento.

Gracias a krishna he podido venir al templo las muletas y mucho cuidado.

Tuve la misericordia esos días de ayudar con el vestido de flores de el festival del señor Balarama y podré ayudar con los vestidos de flores de Jamastami.

Lamento no estoy pudiendo asistir mucho a Mangala-arti, pero haré el mayor esfuerzo para asistir en Jamastami.

Muchas gracias por su misericordia

Muchas gracias por permitirme servirle


I will do (Translate.google.com of "Hare") Krishna, dear Maharah

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

all glories to you

Please accept my suggestions at your lotus feet.

HpS/ASA - Lettuce feet.

With your response to the above letter and attending Mangala-arti programs one or two days a week, write a solution and I bought a bicycle. But sometimes when one plans one thing, a totally different one comes out and the next day I broke my leg (Tibia Fracture and rupture of the ligament that joins the tibia to the patella).

HpS - Wow, when you break a leg, you do it right!! 😲

I fell one night on public transport in the city, the pain worsened late at night, so in the morning I looked for a hospital. In my first hospital they were going to admit me for three or four weeks but for fear of the hospital diet and others, I went to another hospital where my leg started. 5 days later they put a kind of knee brace on me, making displacement a little easier.

Thanks to Krishna I have been able to come to the temple on crutches and very carefully.

HpS - This is like something from "The Lives of the Saints"! Amazing!

I had the mercy those days to help with the flower dress of Lord Balarama festival and I will be able to help with the flower dress of Jamastami.

HpS - Super! There is no, NO, N O place like Mexico for beautiful flower decorations. I think Radha and Krsna and all Their friends stand on the alter waiting to be dressed and show off to everyone! They need a bigger Temple!

You are a great white witch, no?

Why don't you create a bigger temple for them? 🤔

I am sorry that I am not able to attend Mangala-arti much, but I will do my best to attend Jamastami.

Thank you very much for your mercy

Thank you very much for allowing me to serve you.

HpS - Sing the Bhajan every day with great gusto in front of picture of Radha and Krsna! Let Them know who you worship.

Yasoda - Nueva Vraja Mandala

3 weeks, 3 days ago by yasoda in Personal Sadhana Reports



Hare Krishna muy querido y siempre recordado Gurumaharaja 🙏🧡🙏

Salimos de Bolivia con la misericordia de recibir asociación de Madre Lila Madhuri, una discípula de Narajana Maharaj que resultó ser la sobrina nieta de Carl Jung😱 (tiene fotos familiares incluso) 😱

Mi papá me ayudó con los trámites finales para el viaje a España y por misericordia de Radhe estoy en España Vrajamandala ☺️

Govinda (mi pareja) y yo estamos viviendo en el templo y todo es muy lindo! En especial las deidades!! En Vrajamandala hay tanto tanto servicio por cumplir dentro del templo que es muy fácil olvidar que existe un mundo fuera del templo.

La realización que puedo tener al llegar a Europa es que todo esté mundo material tiene el mismo patrón de modelo que se repite: personas, animales, plantas, autos, ego y deseos insatisfechos localizados en diferentes lugares (países, etc)

Lo que sí veo que cambia es la forma especial que tiene Krishna y Radharani para atraer nuestra atención y ocuparnos en el servicio devocional...

Soy un alma vieja como usted una vez me dijo, la vida de pareja es un acertijo que me gustaría resolver entender y pasarlo como una prueba pero no sé cuál es la enseñanza de ello...

Mi papá me dijo que se siente más tranquilo al saber que estaré protegida y cuidada por Govinda en España, etc. Mi papá siente que él ya está muy mayor de edad (68 años) él quiere retirarse para vivir en el campo (se compró un pedazo de tierra) pero tiene una nueva pareja que lo visita algunas veces. Mi papá dice que es porque aún necesita asistencia por su salud (mi papá tiene parkinson al corazón) espera no necesitarla dentro de pronto y estar tranquilo según me dice. Mi papá le manda muchos saludos a usted Gurumaharaja y agradecimiento por su ayuda en mi vida espiritual.

En Vrajamandala tenemos el servicio de encargados de limpieza de la hospedería (la economía del templo depende mucho del hotel) me gusta limpiar y en especial el castillo de Krishna donde recibe a tantas personas 😊

Tarangaksi, Rukmini, Devahuti y muchos devotos de Vrajamandala le mandan reverencias y esperan con ansias su pronta visita Gurumaharaja (yo lo extraño demasiado Gurumaharaja 🙏🙏🙏)

Que el Señor Nrsimha lo proteja siempre!!

Aspirando a servirlo

Yasoda Devi Dasi




HpS - All glories to His Divine Grace, Srila A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Founder-Acharya of ISKCON, author of the book "KRSNA, The Supreme Personality of Godhead".

Hare Krishna, very dear and always remembered Gurumaharaja 🙏🧡🙏

We left Bolivia with the mercy of receiving association from Mother Lila Madhuri, a disciple of Narayana Maharaj who turned out to be Carl Jung's great-niece😱 (she even has family photos) 😱

My dad helped me with the final paperwork for the trip to Spain and by the mercy of Radhe I am in Spain, Vrajamandala ☺️

Govinda (my partner) and I are living in the temple and everything is very nice! Especially the deities!! In Vrajamandala there is so much service to be performed within the temple that it is very easy to forget that there is a world outside the temple.

The realization that I may have, upon arriving in Europe, is that all of this material world has the same repeating pattern: people, animals, plants, cars, ego and unsatisfied desires located in different places (countries, etc.)

HpS/ASA - All the movies have the same plots over and over again!!! 😏

What I do see changing is the special way Krishna and Radharani have to attract our attention and engage us in devotional service...

ASA - Ohhh! 🐵 🐹 It is just Their nature and, even though the two most amazing things are Radha and Krsna, even They are amazed by . . . . Sri Vrndavana Dhama!

I am an old soul as you once told me,

the life of a couple is a riddle that I would like to solve, understand and pass it as a test.

but I don't know what the lesson is...

My dad told me that he feels calmer knowing that I will be protected and cared for by Govinda in Spain, etc.

My dad feels that he is already too old (68 years old) he wants to retire to live in the country (he bought a piece of land) but he has a new partner who visits him sometimes. My dad says it's because he still needs assistance for his health (my dad has Parkinson's heart disease) he hopes he won't need it anytime soon and he tells me to be calm. My dad sends many greetings to you Gurumaharaja and thanks for his help in my spiritual life.

HpS - Everyone in the ASA monkey troupe wants to know, "Who is Govinda?"! Does he have five heads? Is he spider man?

In Vrajamandala we have the cleaning service of the hostel (the economy of the temple depends a lot on the hotel) I like to clean and especially Krishna's castle where he receives so many people 😊

Tarangaksi, Rukmini, Devahuti and many Vrajamandala devotees send their obeisances to him and look forward to his soon visit Gurumaharaja (I miss him so much Gurumaharaja 🙏🙏🙏)

May Lord Nrsimha protect you always!!

Aspiring to serve you

Yasoda Devi Dasi

HpS - Josselyn, Yahaira and Jennifer? What a long and twisted road it has been, yet it is not over until we have killed our false ego!!😡

We feel envious of you. We remember so much transcendental bliss in NVM. What magical pastimes do Radha Govinda candra and Their friends and Yoga maya plan to try next?
