Hare Krishna!!!

Dear HH Hanumatpresaka Maharaja,

Please accept my most humble obeisances and All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!!!

Hare Krishna maharaja, thank you so so much for your latest reply. I feel very inspired :)

This past weekend, Adrian and i spent the night at the Sri Sri Radha-Krishna Temple down in Spanish Fork so we could meet with Caru prabhu and Vaibhavi mataji about marriage and initiation. We unfortunately didn't get to speak with them together, but it was good what we heard from each of them. Caru prabhu is very happy about us becoming married and said he would be "delighted" to be the priest. He also encourages us for initiation, so we will work with your instruction of one year minimum commitment with the temple and then proceed for first initiation, if approved by Caru prabhu, Vaibhavi mataji, yourself!, and the devotees here. Vaibhavai mataji was very sweet, also. She gave very good instruction through stories of other devotees, and she also was very happy about us becoming married. She said that she would always be there for us to help, but because she and Caru prabhu decided not to have children, that counseling from another devotee family would be more proper. On a side note, during the conversation, the topic of our material situation came up and Vaibhavi mataji pointed out the fact that Adrian would probably not be able to afford to purchase a ring for engagement or marriage. She told us that she was given a diamond necklace from her mother-in-law and that she has lost it. Then just a few days back, one of the WWOOFers staying at the temple found it. Mataji said she'd give it to Adrian to give to me eventually... We were both speechless... She is such an amazing person, I am feeling very fortunate to have her association here. As far as schooling goes, Vaibhavi mataji said that she had finished school and, because it would make my parents happy, no reason to disturb them anymore than necessary (especially since they're paying for it). She did say, though, that it is ultimately my decision and that she wasn't going to instruct me on the matter because what's good for one may not be good for another, so... I won't gain residency to attend school until spring next year, so no reason to really think about that for now.

Yesterday was our first day going out on an attempted sankirtana, hahaha. We did not do any distributing, but we found out how to start a student club on the University of Utah campus and did a little preaching here and there. Today we're going out for round two.. little better idea how to get things going, but it is still difficult to approach people! 

Otherwise.. things are going nicely here. There was a little drama thing happening in the temple with a couple devotees, but seems to be nice now. Going into Srimad Bhagavatam, Second Canto today! Jaya! 

Thank you maharaja, so much for your association! Haribolo!

your aspiring servant,

GuruMaharaj
How are you?

HpS - ASA    -      AGTSP     paoho      We are in suffering in hell, but if we chant and dance fast enough it doesn't hurt so much.

Here we are well, following our progress in Krishna consciousness!
Sorry, I could not writebefore.
Thanks for letting me serve to you personally in your stay in Buenos Aires.
I'm going through a time of change, and I'm getting used to everything new. But I feel Iam with very little time in the day. In the restaurant I'm full time in association with the devotees and helps me to develop many aspects in my life, as tolerance.
If I release you from this cold and flu, I'll connect with japa joe  as being sick will not let me wake up early.
How do we realize if things that happen to us are karma or are plans krishna?

HpS - ASA    -    Many different ways.   Need details to give a detailed answer, no?   And that can be impossible by telefone often.   But if we are chanting 16 nice rounds and following the four principles strictly under Srila Prabhupada's authority...   "mahatmanas tu mam partha..." (cited in NOI) our whole life is under Radha-Krsna!


Think you all right to go slowly and make sure steps in the spiritual life,or should we make great sacrifices and austerities?

ASA -  NOI    -   Text Three.......    Utasahan is more more important than dhairyat, but without dhairayat it becomes passion.  So make plans and act with some intelligence.  Bee enthusiasic to advance, solver your problems as your first priority, but... have some patience!

(It's nice giveing this advice because we need to hear it more than anybody else).


As for my sadhana, my sick state I'm not waking early, but this desire to do so frequently. Sorry, but I feel I'm getting a lot of excuses, ajaja

As the japa, chant 16 or more, but I always feel that my meditation is not enough, and try to concentrate more.
As for the service, I fixed the temple in the kitchen cleaning the Tuesday and performed bhajans at the party Sunday.
I hope to contact more often with you.
Pardon my informality in my writing and my English badly translated, aja
Please forgive the offenses
My obeisance to you

Thanks for the constant inspiration

HpS -  Jaya!!    ----   So nice to hear from you.     O.K.     The body does not have diseases.    The body is a disease.   When we cure the body of all diseases we won't have a body any more.  So our process is...   Suicide.      Ha!      Ha!      Haaaa!!!                  Esperamos  oir de sus esfuerzas!   Nice foto!!!

Please accept my humble obeissances

Dear Maharaja

We are happy to tell that we`re going 100%  vegetarian.  Also happy to say we`re chanting rounds (took seriously the 4 rounds vow) Early solo Sankirtan in Park really got us right. jaya !

We had strong kitchen service at Temple last Friday and really felt it`s blessings and power. Chanted while peeling 100 potatoes and talked with devotees about Vraja and past times.  So we intend to keep this service every Friday. It`s good for us.    Music group is going well, we have songs in sanskrit, english and the mahamantra rock dance new song  truly nice.  (we`ll send link as soon as we have it recorded) jaya Srila Prabhupada !

HpS - ASA   -   Jaya!     Srila Prabhupada Ki Jia!!!

Sunday feast also part of schedule now.   We begin to feel holy names always singing in our heads. 

Last Kapi Dhvaja really good !  Monkey, Piggy and Uncle Gismo made our day. Much, much to learn.  No thanks big enough to express gratitude to Siksa Guru and Vaisnavas. Time is on our side now thanks to the Lord.  Uncle Gismo would say it better though.

Raul from Montreal.

ASA -   O.K.    We wait for the link   and some fotos!
