From Radha-Kalachandji dham

Hare Krishna!

Guru Maharaja

Please accept my humble obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!


Things are going as well as can be expected here Guru Maharaja.


HpS/ASA - Goloka with the daily demons snuffed? Kuruksetra???


I am engaged in service, chanting 16 rounds and following 4 regs.


HpS - Jaya, Gurudeva!


The Krishna House project is going well. I am learning quite a bit about who I am and how to perform my services.

One thing I am learning is how attracted I am to systems and organization.

It has a tendence to lead me to not appreciating people as much as I believe I should for my service.

The saying people over projects sometimes doesn't compute for me.

However, I am making adjustments and learning to be a better person so I can show up better for people and be a better people person. This has been helping me in my service.


HpS - I was surprised how personally attached some people are to impersonal, but geometrically elegant, systems. Then some people feel so, so, happy to be part of such a system.

Followers of Advaita were Smartas.

Followers of niTyananda we Avadhutas.

Nimai got big, big, kick out of both!


I have been asked to attend GBC college. I got this invite the same day I decided that I could use some time to better myself professionally.

I think it maybe Krishna's arrangement after inquiring from a few devotees about what in entails. It seems like a good program. What do you think Guru Maharaja? Do you think this is something I should do? If you think so, if you would be so kind to give me your blessing it would be very encouraging to me.


HpS - I don't know. In some ways it was too Smarta for me, but it was really nice personally associating with the organizers etc.

The rules of Sanskrita Grammar are eternal like.... the Holy Names Themselves!!

See the letter we just wrote to Manjari!!

Try it out and then make your next step.


Guru Maharaja, you told me some 12-14 years ago that I am a coach, that this is my nature. I am working on being the best transcendental coach I can be. I genuinely ask that you please let me know if there is anything I can do that would be pleasing to you. Please


HpS/ASA - Well, anything that you can do to make Srila Prabhupada's heart glow with happiness, is all that I, or any devotee aspires for.

Yet there is one thing that maybe, maybe you might be able to do in this lifetime if it is possible.

Can you sell just one more Weed Whipper?

😎


Thank you so much,

Your servant

Nanda-braja das


HpS - Really hope to see you soon. Thank you.

So many respects to all the Towers of Light in ISKCON Dallas.

CLAVE: ECLIPSE URGENT


Hare Krishna Gurumajaraja

Please Receibe My Humble Obeisances All Glories to Srila Prabhupada


I put miself an anonimous name because My case is confidential, Please Gurumajaraja I would like to do next questions:


1/ I doubht all time Even thought I chant My rounds how can I have more security in My decitions?

HpS/ASA - Canakya Pandita: Success comes from good advise, and good advise comes from many counselors.


2/ I feel a profound distress, I just realised that by karma I do not have confidence in miself ,I dont have faith that Krishna will help me ,I don't have faith that everything Will be arranged by Krishna,I don't feel in my heart that Krishns is the controler, but I want to control ,I have too much negativity I do not have faith in my ideas so I doubht too much.

How can I overcome all these?🙏🙏🙏

HpS/ASA - You cannot overcome them. Krsna will overcome them. How does a three month old baby overcome his hunger? He can't.

Krsna had many qualities, but his foremost is his mercy on reclaiming the fallen, frightened, proud, conditioned souls.

Of course, we have to do all we can to take advantage of the mercy He sends.

Yet in the end Radha is more tricky, powerful and funny than Durga, so She will get us out of this mess, but we must help!!! Try as much as we can.

4/ How can I overcome fear?for example the perspectives to do the next idea of My next questions gives me a Lot of fear I think who Will like the idea!! Maybe nobady!! How I ll get the money !!!Thinks like that?

HpS/ASA - Just take a deep breath and chant Maha-mantra vigorously until Krsna enters your intelligence, like He did when He spoke to Arjuna. I've done it again and again. It works. Maybe takes a few minutes for BIG PROBLEMS, but works.

AgtSP!!!

5/ I would like to form an small ashram of matajis to rent an apartamento or a house with maximun 4 matajis,to have un altar, deities, and to make it susteinable. prepare a room for un RB&B for offer room and breakfast to only woman who would like to practice spiritual life. could be tourists or locals we can teach them how to cook,to offer,chant rounds etc.y it would be un income for the asram,as well my idea is that in the salon of the appartment give lessons of English, puppets,etc to children,to have another income to pay the rent ,we could do nice small preaching programs only for women.My questions is

How can I do the plan to make it real and reliable and make it work?.


HpS/ Already answered... Canakhya said... Krsna will do the magic or he will turn you into bird who lives on flower blossoms.

He is the ultimate controller.


How can I get matajis who would like to participate?

HpS/ You be pure... Full morning service with enthusiasm and Krsna will send nice people and they must be patient to hear that this world is just a train station where we get on the airplane back home!!!

Jaya!!


Thank You very much GM

Your Servant.

Experiencias Mentales

1 month, 2 weeks ago by Asta Sakhi Devi Dasi in Personal Sadhana Reports


Querido Gurumaharaja

Por favor acepte nuestras respetuosas reverencias.

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada! 

Todas las glorias a Usted que fielmente sirve a nuestro Fundador Acarya. 

Muchas gracias por su sagrada asociación y ejemplo cada día de nuestras vidas. Que el Señor Nrisimhadeva lo proteja. 

El mes de mayo será la aparición del Señor Nrisimhadeva y Kapi dvaja terminará un ciclo periódico, queremos agradecerle por los años brindados y decirle que nos parece bien que sea más espontáneo, ha cumplido un buen ciclo, ahora Hanuman express dispatch volará de forma distinta, su editor es un escritor nato, por tanto suponemos que continuará aterrizando cuando menos lo esperemos, estaremos atentos; recordamos cuando llegaba a Chosica mandir, estaba impreso con un encabezado de una lista corta de discípulos encabezados por Sriman Raktak das. Muchas gracias Gurumaharaja. 

Respecto a sus viajes nos parece bien su desicion de no tener viajes cortos muy frecuentes, pensamos que esto mantiene su energía más estable y todos somos beneficiados con más asociación virtual en todos sus programas. 


Usted compartió algunas experiencias sublimes en Conciencia de Krsna, incluso con el Señor Jesucristo a través del blog y la clase del sábado, estamos agradecidos y anhelamos más artículos de estás experiencias por favor. 

Su servidora únicamente divaga en experiencias mentales pero aún así humildemente deseo compartirlo, estuve pensando que soy mal agradecida porque uno debe dar gracias por la misericordia recibida de algún modo. 

Mientras vivíamos en el ashrama, un discipulo estuvo con usted en Vrndavan, nos mostraba sus fotos de diferentes lugares sagrados, había una foto donde UD veía el Upadesamrita en el Radhakunda, nos dijeron que trataba de ubicar desde que ángulo fue tomada la foto que aparece en la contra tapa del libro, parecía muy animado tratando de encontrar, me quedé meditando en ello todo el día, ojalá yo estuviera ahí para asistir a mi Gurumaharaja, talves sumaría una pequeña ayuda. 

Esa noche tuve un sueño, era como haber ingresado a tal acontecimiento , UD iba adelante con varios devotos de dhoti y yo caminaba detrás, habíamos llegado al Radhakunda! veía tantos detalles que nunca ví por fotos porque en ese tiempo no había la tecnología de hoy, inmediatamente UD ofreció dandavat junto con los demás devotos, yo me apresuré a hacerlo también pero tenía un dilema, las madres en ISKCON no ofrecen dandavat con el cuerpo extendido, pero pensaba ¡Es Radhakunda debo ofrecer dandavat! Sin pensar más me postre en esa posición con pleno respeto y rendición, de inmediato pude ver otra dimensión, una suave y tersa ola del Radhakunda tomó forma y delicadamente se dirigió a nosotros bañándonos meticulosamente desde la cabeza, pude sentir claramente esa Sagrada agua, inmediatamente fui liberada de toda designación material, me experimente como un ser espiritual, ya no era madre ni devoto con dhoti, totalmente liberada de esa designación pude experimentar una dimensión indescriptible. 

En el 2002 geográficamente pude llegar por su misericordia, UD nos llevó y los detalles del Radhakunda eran tal cual, ahí estábamos como usted y fue tan increíble! tomó un poco de agua con las manos y se rocío en su cabeza, yo continúe visitando varias veces, en ocasiones sola, pero muy ambiciosa, con una lota sacaba mucha agua y me empapaba de esa sagrada agua del Radhakunda cuanto podía, quería aprovechar esa visita. 

UD nos abrió las puertas de Vrndavan, muchas gracias! ahora es cuestión de purificación para poder ver el Radhakunda espiritual y porsupuesto nuestra posición eterna de sirvientes, Gurumaharaja en Nadia espiritual como es la experiencia con el Radhakunda?

Porsupuesto fue únicamente un sueño, pero muy intenso, justamente había llegado SS. Kavicandra Swami a Chosica y decidí contarle, él dijo yo no sé de sueños pero puedo decirte que debes tomarlo como la más grande misericordia. Gurumaharaja esa misericordia me la dió usted porque mis experiencias mentales por propio esfuerzo son únicamente materiales y llenos de sufrimiento, es el maestro espiritual quien muestra el Dham incluso en sueños al discipulo, es el motivo de mi doble agradecimiento. 


Hace poco UD respondió una carta que dice que siempre debemos tratar de avanzar incluso en el estado liberado, mi pregunta es: el plano brahma bhuta para un devoto puro en que etapa avanza se transforma?


Tengo otra pregunta, aunque el devoto puro no debe aspirar los 5 tipos de liberación, si es por servicio él puede llegar al planeta espiritual del Señor Caitanya, en términos técnicos, alguien puede alcanzar la forma del Señor Caitanya? (sarupya), las Escrituras señalan la forma de 4 brazos pero Sri Caitanya no es conocido por tener 4 brazos a excepción de su forma de Sad bhuja, me gustaría entender un poco más por favor. 


Para terminar mi larga carta (pido disculpas por el abuso) quiero solicitar si se puede agregar a la lista de discípulos de Guru-tattva la fecha de mi segunda iniciación por favor. 

30 de Agosto de 1998 (Radhastami) 

Continuamos cantando 16 rondas y Gayatri, 4 principios regulativos sin problemas y participamos como pujaris. 


Usted solicitó hace un tiempo editar cualquier arreglo, pensé que no era necesario en mi caso, disculpe por favor, este año ví que a veces algunos devotos no preguntan o investigan sino más bien proporcionan información de acuerdo a su propia y caprichosa imaginación.

También recordamos que un devoto pujari nos contó que tuvo que recibir el Gayatri por segunda vez porque no había evidencia de su ceremonia con Śrīla Prabhupāda. 


Adjuntamos foto de Srimati Radharani en invierno con el suéter verde que sorprendentemente logramos tejer. 


Le agradezco su misericordiosa atención. 

Por favor perdone nuestras ofensas. 



Vuestra eterna aspirante a sirviente 

Asta Sakhi dd

Dear Gurumaharaja

Please accept our respectful bows.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

All glories to You who faithfully serve our Founder Acarya.


HpS - We 99.9999...% selfish, but Srila Prabhupada does not give up on us!!!!!


Thank you very much for your sacred partnership and example every day of our lives. May Lord Nrisimhadeva protect you.


HpS = He is very very beautiful. I think He wants to participate in this movement more and more.


The month of May will be the appearance of Lord Nrisimhadeva and Kapi dvaja will end a periodic cycle, we want to thank him for the years given and tell him that we think it is good that he is more spontaneous, he has completed a good cycle, now Hanuman express dispatch will fly in a different way, Its editor is a born writer, so we assume that it will continue to land when we least expect it, we will be attentive; We remember when it came to Chosica mandir, it was printed with a heading of a short list of disciples headed by Sriman Raktak das. Thank you very much Gurumaharaja.


Regarding their trips, we think their decision to not have very frequent short trips is good, we think that this keeps their energy more stable and we all benefit from more virtual association in all their programs.


You shared some sublime experiences in Krishna Consciousness, including with the Lord Jesus Christ through the blog and the Saturday class, we are grateful and look forward to more articles about these experiences please.


Your servant only rambles on in mental experiences but I still humbly wish to share it. I was thinking that I am ungrateful because one must give thanks for the mercy received in some way.


While we lived in the ashrama, a disciple was with you in Vrndavan, he showed us his photos of different sacred places, there was a photo where you saw the Upadesamrita in the Radhakunda, they told us that he was trying to locate from what angle the photo that appears was taken. on the back cover of the book, he seemed very excited trying to find it, I kept meditating on it all day, I wish I were there to assist my Gurumaharaja, maybe it would add a little help.


HpS - Yes, it was like the stones on the edge of Radha kunda had been changed. It was not very possible!



That night I had a dream, it was like having entered such an event, you were ahead with several dhoti devotees and I was walking behind, we had arrived at Radhakunda! I saw so many details that I never saw in photos because at that time there was not today's technology, immediately you offered dandavat along with the other devotees, I rushed to do it too but I had a dilemma, mothers in ISKCON do not offer dandavat with the body extended, but I thought It's Radhakunda I must offer dandavat! Without thinking further I prostrated myself in that position with full respect and surrender, immediately I could see another dimension, a soft and smooth wave of the Radhakunda took shape and delicately addressed us, bathing us meticulously from the head, I could clearly feel that Sacred water, immediately I was freed from all material designation, I experienced myself as a spiritual being, I was no longer a mother or a devotee with dhoti, totally freed from that designation I was able to experience an indescribable dimension.


HpS - All glories to the wonderful land of Vrndavan!!! Filled with the songs of Krsna and Balarama. Come along! Come along!!


In 2002 geographically I was able to arrive by your mercy, you took us and the details of the Radhakunda were just as they were, there we were like you and it was so incredible! She took a little water with her hands and sprinkled it on her head. I continued visiting several times, sometimes alone, but very ambitious. I used a burbot to draw a lot of water and soaked in that sacred water of Radhakunda as much as I could. I wanted to take advantage of that. visit.


You opened the doors of Vrndavan to us, thank you very much! Now it is a matter of purification to be able to see the spiritual Radhakunda and of course our eternal position as servants, Gurumaharaja in spiritual Nadia. How is the experience with the Radhakunda?


HpS - I don't know. Even Narada Muni cannot really go there, yet, but we can see it from some distance, maybe like parrots flying over.

By mercy of Lord Caitanya wonderful things are possible.



Of course it was just a dream, but a very intense one, SS had just arrived. Kavicandra Swami to Chosica and I decided to tell him, he said I don't know about dreams but I can tell you that you should take it as the greatest mercy. Gurumaharaja gave me that mercy because my mental experiences through my own efforts are only material and full of suffering, it is the spiritual master who shows the Dham even in dreams to the disciple, it is the reason for my double gratitude.

Recently you responded to a letter that says that we should always try to advance even in the liberated state, my question is: the brahma bhuta plane for a pure devotee is transformed into what stage does he advance?


HpS - We become Goswamis. Is just the same if you have a female persona now. Men take formal Sannyasa but ladies, children all must become Brahmanas (there is a reality. The Dieties are spiritual); then Goswamis (We feel inspiration for details of our service from the Deities. Reality has form!); Pure devotees (Krsna and Radha and.... start to personally involve us in the immediate spiritual reality)


I have another question, although the pure devotee should not aspire for the 5 types of liberation, if by service he can reach the spiritual planet of Lord Caitanya, in technical terms, can anyone achieve the form of Lord Caitanya? (sarupya), the scriptures indicate the 4-armed form but Sri Caitanya is not known to have 4 arms except for his Sad bhuja form, I would like to understand a little more please.


HpS - Little bit complicated question. I would think that taking birth in Nadiya in our next lifetime even as a dog who can join Nimai with other dogs in the Sankirtan is Svarupaya. Of course if are boys and girls like Lord Caitanya playing with Him and the Nitya siddhas while we are growing up, then that is maybe even more Svarupya mukti.


To finish my long letter (I apologize for the abuse) I would like to request if the date of my second initiation can be added to the list of Guru-tattva disciples please.


August 30, 1998 (Radhastami)


ASA - Tom Brown made a note to add it. He is very honored, but he is a Monkey, so if the change is not made by time of next KDh, then please do not hesitate to ask again!


We continued chanting 16 rounds and Gayatri, 4 regulative principles smoothly and participated as pujaris.


You requested a while ago to edit any arrangement, I thought it was not necessary in my case, please excuse me, this year I saw that sometimes some devotees do not ask or investigate but rather provide information according to their own capricious imagination.


We also remember that a pujari devotee told us that he had to receive the Gayatri a second time because there was no evidence of his ceremony with Śrīla Prabhupāda.


We attach a photo of Srimati Radharani in winter with the green sweater that we surprisingly managed to knit.


I thank you for your merciful attention.


Please forgive our offenses.

Your eternal aspiring servant

Asta Sakhi dd


HpS/ASA - Thank you!!! Thanks to Manasa ranjana Das! Everyone!

Gurudeva please help me!

Hare Krsna Gurudeva

My respected Gurudeva, please accept my most humble and respectful obeisances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

¡Om namo Bhagavate Narasimhaya!


I always wish you the best for your health.


HpS/ASA - Ha! Ha! Hare!... Then, agtSP, you wish me dead!


 

Maybe what I'm writing is crazy, but it's what I'm discovering in myself. Gurudeva please help me!

 

Now my mind is eclipsing my vision of material life and in this mind I am seeing the cause of my reality and this seems to be far from material logic.

 

Thus, as there is the material and the spiritual world, there is the conscious and the unconscious, the internal and external world of each individual.

 

The unconscious is more powerful (Jung), it generates the conscious and the spiritual world generates the material existence (energies of the Supreme Lord) and it is there, in the spiritual world where the existence of the soul is.

 

Thus, there is the best childless grandfather (Bhisma); the best father can be absent (Vyasadeva, Arjuna)

 

Because? Truly, their absence was material; they weaved the best inheritance for their descendants, their unconscious. Bg 2.69.


HpS - Prabhupada and Jung did not like the word "unconscious". They both commented that it could become conscious world as we wake up. They liked Subconscious.


 

They really do their duty, but they do it from the true position as spiritual subjects, they act from the unconscious, they build it to raise their vibration each time and be able to return to Krsna and be an example of how to return.

 

The unconscious of parents and ancestors is inherited by the offspring. The virtues and defects, those are the true ones, what we are we give as an inheritance, to the universe, to our world, to the community, to our children.


It is there where the Maha Mantra, Hare Krsna, acts, from the cause, it takes us to the original cause (The Supreme Lord KRSNA) by Krsna consciousness; Jaya Gurudeva, All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.

 

Jaya śrī-kṛṣṇa-caitanya… Who tells us: ceto-darpana-marjanam……


Thank you very much for your attention Gurudeva, your time and mercy.

His disciple

Rohini dd


HpS - Of course, the Maha-mantra can just act to let us take birth in Indra loka in our next life, with some higher Bhava, consciousness, or it can take us to Brahmaloka, Vaikunta, Ayodhya, Dvaraka, Goloka, Rasa lila.


Gross people only see Bhumandala. external causes for things. They try by Science to understand everything... but behind that it Bhuvar, where the Fairys, Gandharvas, Kinnaras, Apsaras act.

Like you are saying.

At that level they don't just see the gross external laws of Gravity, Motion, Maxwell's equations, they see the laws of Karma relating to birth as a Princess or a Pauper....


Taking shelter of Srila Prabhupada and Nitai Nimai we can hopefully get the full power of the Mantra.

Would you like to take birth in Nabadvipa with all the pastimes of the CC, with Srila Prabhupada, in your next lifetime???

Asking for your guide, Gurudeva 🙏🏻

Hare Krishna, Gurudeva 🙏🏻 Please, accept my humble obeisances!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada! 🌷


Gurudeva, as I told you before, I am back again in matajis asrama of Chosica. I came back to my service of dressing the deities.


It is been more than two months since I returned from India. This trip was quite an experience for me, a learning experience in several aspects. Now that some time has passed, I am having memories especially of my stay in Vrndavana and I would like to return in the future, but in a different context...travel with friends or a close friend......and if you were there... the better!


I continue to strive to do a good sadhana and also to read Srila Prabhupada's books more, as you have recommended to me several times.


Gurudeva, lately I am feeling more the desire to preach......sometimes it makes me sad to see the temples almost empty.....and I also do not feel completely satisfied with just doing service to the Deities. Serving Deities is really nice, very purifying for me, but even so I feel that something is missing...

I think I also have to engage in some form of preaching to reach people. Actually this is very in line with my nature, because I really like contact with people, talking to them, making friends..


At the moment I am trying to preach to the people who come to the temple. But, I am still thinking about what preaching project I can get involved in... I was thinking about looking for places to put book tables, fairs or something like that..


Waiting for your comments, your merciful guide, Gurudeva...🙏🏻


Your aspiring servant:

Mitravinda dd.


HpS/ASA - Your, agtSP, consciousness is great. Just intensify things. No changes needed.

Just look for opportunities to meet people in your natural setting.

Join a Peruvian girls football team if that is your nature.

Be KRSNA conscious and associate with people.

Everything else will follow.

Hare Krsna Beloved Gurudeva:

AGTSP, pamho


I promised to share pictures about my birthday.


My very dear Palika dd made my cake, very delicious with a lots of affection. My friend Lisset Graham who is university professor as well was amazed by the prasadam. She is very supportive and intelligent.


I am most of the time exhausted by my job, but I love to teach. I went to Siva ratri (Gita Asram) a really nice festival.


I have to confess that I was too overwhelmed the last 2 months that I missed to Ekadasis. I ate grains without thinking I was so sorry. For one I did the fast the next day but the other I missed it completely. But I did Papamcani EKadasi.


P Baladeva is visiting us. But honestly I doubt that he can do something to change the situation un Iskcon Perú. In the future maybe Iskcon Perú is going to be divided in two groups. Kurukshetra !!!!


I bought a new crown for my Radhika. We can use rings in order to use them as crowns for our deities


Today is eclipse. Time for introspection


Reciting mantras is very auspicioso. Specially Maha Mantra Hare Krsna


Thanks a bunch Gurudeva

See you in FMS

Trying to be your disciple
