All Glories to Sri Sri RadheSyama!
All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All Glories to you!!!

Dear Guru Maharaja:
                                          How're you? I hope you'll can have more rest. 

HpS - ASA    AGTSP    paoho.    We just arrived in Monterrey. Still little chest pain, but much less.  We have to learn to work with a more relaxed attitude.
                    I'm fine, chanting 3 round, at least. Adoring Sri Sri Gaura Nitay, J B & S and Srila Prabhupada :)
                  I download your .txt of Bhakti Sastri, and that's my guide to read the Upadesamrta, and learn about conduct, association, process and content. I read the Manual of Japa by Satsvarupa Das Goswami. But well, my effort is not enough, for the moment, but I have faith to get better.
               We're prepparing your comming. It's so great! I associate, with some spritual brothers who're so kind! They leave me help in some things and i'm so happy about that! <img alt="laugh" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/teeth_smile.gif" title="laugh" /> I feel that way I can retturn, a tiny part of everything you do, thanks for your mercy, thank you for coming.

Surrender to you holy holy holy lotus feets!
Thanks for your valious time and for your mercy.
-Bna Romi-

Hare Krsna Very dear Gurudeva:


I know that we meet everyday at japa joe with everybody but since a long time I did not write to U,.....

I am very very very grateful and happy for this Japa joe this december 21st my rounds, sadhana etc has improved 108% , thank U very much I feel more energized now.. for instance the other day even if I did all the things that were on my hands I couldn't cover one turn in pujari so I remembered that U tell me that if I just can offer one smile to Krsna that will be Ok and HE gladly will accept it, so I just smile and one mataji tried to help us in that situation <img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/09.gif" title="" />.. Gaura Nitay are much more concern about our hear and chant I realized that.....

I will retun to work on March 5th..but I have already bought my ticket to argentina <img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/05.gif" title="" />... I will there from March 10th to march 16th... (I can handle that situation at work).. I will travel to U to Mar del plata <img alt="" src="http://hps-d6.monkeywarrior.com/sites/all/libraries/ckeditor/plugins/smiley/images/a04.gif" title="" />.... I will go with Mahamanjari dd (Prahladananda Swami's disciple) but on different flights same dates.... we are going to stay at EKanta bhakti's house due to stayin g in the temple is too expensive for us so I can't be there for mangal arti because it is too far away from the temple.... But we can meet  in Srimad Bhagavatam class ,in the evening programs , etc also in mar del plata we will stay at Arjuna sakha das and erika's house the same I guess we can not meet at mangal arti. ON ekanta'sn we have wifi so we can do japa joe with everybody else yeeeeeee

I have already research about the tickets to chiclayo after this email  I will write to the itinerary email....

I can not wait for starting the third canto so I guess I will start reading....

Thanks for all your inspiration....

Your eternal servant

Keep Trying

HARE KRSNA Dear Gurudeva...pamho

after some time we are writing in this blog.. excuse us for the delay

these months have been challenging in many aspects...health, sadhana, association with devotees, understanding who we are...

by the mercy of Krsna this body is accepting very well new kidneys  but we are still afraid...this time we dont want to mess it up...so we are taking it very carefully... sometimes we feel very very tired and sometimes we feel like superman..hahahaha.... we think it is the side effects of too many pills???

our sadhana is not so good nowadays... we dont get up early everyday but we keep trying... we are using all ur advices....we chant 16 rounds but we feel they are not good rounds at all... our association with devotees is very low... for so long we couldnot control our tongue and our words that we feel we hurt many devotees so we feel ashamed to look at their faces... we admit we never appreciate how much devotees care bout us....we are keeping our japa in our hands as much as we can so everytime we think of making an offense we chant and ask Krsna to not to think of that....we start to see some devotees to get some of their enthusiasm

we are reading more Prabhupada's books and everytime we find the answer to our questions..it is amazing  how Prabhupada is always with us and we do not realize... our bhakti sastri fellows help us a lot to appreciate more Prabhupada's book...

we are trying to do our best to be a good servant x Prabhupada and U...

thanks a lot x being so patient

HpS - Jaya!      Many times we notice Srila Prabhupada comments that this was the standard of the Six Gosvamis, but then he says that neither he nor us are Rupa Goswami. So, four principles strictly and 16-enthusiastic rounds are what Krsna wants.

How can nice introspective recitation of the Holy Names be bad for our bodies?

That's the focus, no?     Enthusiastic Japa.  Of course, if we are in the body of a dog we won't do it on beads, but we can still do something.

So, fight with intelligence to get enthusiatic rounds done as your Number One Priority and then Four Principles and then .......

.....  Thank you so much for your news.   It helps a LOT.

Le ofrezco mis respetuosas reverencias a Sus Adorables Pies de lotus. Espero que se encuentre en buen estado de salud. Esta carta tiene por motivo lo siguiente: Cada vez que nos encontramos en duda o cuando el futuro no esta claro; Ud. siempre esta dispuesto a guiarnos y siempre que seguimos su instruccion tiene exito tanto espiritual y materialmente, es por eso que le escribo por un consejo. Querido Gurudeva nosotros seguimos viviendo y haciendo servicio en el templo de Mississippi. Este lugar es maravilloso, como Ud. dijo es como Vrindavana, por eso pensamos quedarnos, y buscamos terreno para poder quedarnos pero es imposible, porque cada vez que queremos la tierra no nos la quieren vender o simplemente es muy grande, nosotros solo queremos 2 acres, para tener un jardin y el trailer pero aun no encontramos. Pensamos quedarnos por lo pacifico que es la farm, Gaurangui crece en la inmensidad de sus jardines feliz. Tambien pensamos en la posibilidad de movernos por la facilidad que tienen otros estados, (estudio para mi, trabajo para Caitanya y colegio para Gaurangi). Entonces vemos cual seria la mejor opcion, si California (San Diego) o Florida. De todos modos siempre queremos vivir cerca a un templo y hacer servicio por el resto de nuestras vidas. Para nosotros esta muy claro que el unico proposito aqui en la tierra es servir a los devotos y a Krishna, siempre vamos con Gaury al templo y cantamos juntos y ella es muy devocional, quiere mucho a Prabhupada y al Senhor Jaganatha. Gurudeva algunos devotos nos sugieren que nos vayamos a Florida, ya que dicen que es mucho mejor que esta farm, todavia no hemos tenido la oportunidad de ir y ademas dicen que los terrenos cerca al templo en Alachua son mas comodos. La opcion de volver a California es porque hay tantas facilidades de obtener lo que uno quiere en el aspecto material pero claro que es un estado muy agitado y todo es expensive.
Se que Ud. nos dara una respuesta favorable Gurudeva, gracias por ayudarnos a seguir unidos a Srila Prabhupada.
Ofreciendole otra vez nuestras respetuosas reverencias, nos despedimos.
Caitanya Lila da, Gaurangui dd & Sacimata dd 
HpS - ASA --  Jaya!    TlgaSP   pfarnh.   Hace 100 anos no oir de Vds.  Pensando mucho en Vds.  No se los detalles.   Puede esperar hast el Senor arregla oportunidad en Mississippi.   Posible formand esfuerz con unos otros devotos comprar y dividir un terreno mas grande.
No, se pienso su carta tiene claro buen comprehension de cosas.  Pienso sera bueno visitar a New Raman reti en una viaje bien organizado para su advanza espiritual y ver personalmente lo que pasa alla!!

Hare Krsna Gurudeva

Hare Krsna Gurudeva. How are you? I hope you are fine.

Here I am trying to do some service. I am continuing doing service at Wilson three days a week and I also continue chanting my rounds and following my 4 principles.

In Nityanandas ´s day I went to Chosica´s festival in the morning and Wilson´ festival in the evening. It was like a little marathon for me because I had to travel between the two celebrations but I was great. The two celebrations were very beautiful and full of enthusiasm from the devotees; it makes the festivals very catching.

Hare Krsna Gurudeva.

Your servant.

Draupadi Devi Dasi. 

HpS - Jaya!      AgtSP          So nice to hear from you, and such very fine English.  Thank you for this news, but do  you still have the job with the English Center and what ahs happened with the "Gita Coaching" program?

Hare Krsna dear Gurudeva
Please accept my humble obeisance, all glories to Srila Prabbhupada!!!

Now my father came to Brasil for 5 days, and we are doing a little of tourism with him. We are in a place called Sao Sebastiao, we rent a car, tomorow we go to Paraty, and after that to Goura Vrndavana (a farm), and in the way back to Sao Paulo we will visit Nova Gokula, after that my brother and father return to Peru and I stay here  until 10th March. 

There is a video that explains the project of the school in Franco da Rocha. It began with some children who liked to go to the temple, take prasadam, the devotees were teaching them songs, make them to draw, etc. But because of bad association many of them left the association of the devotees. So they start the project of the gurukula to give them an alternative to the traditional school. The children doesn't not come from vaisnava families, but some parents even goes to help to clean and cook, because everything is for free and the children improve a lot their behavior at home. The children goes to Govinda every day before class, take breakfast prasadam (they themselves serve one to the others), they also take lunch at the temple, and they study until 6pm. Many of them do service in the temple, they know how to do the worship, how to play instruments, they are good vaisnavas. It is very sweet, every Wednesday they attempt to the Srimad Bhagavatam class, and the class is super clear, and fun. 

Excuse me if I didn't explain clearly the last time, but now I have the computer of my father, before was very difficult to get on internet!

I had a super sincere talk with my father, about my last years, since I am devotee, how I am feeling about many things (my desire to be with devotees, studies, their desires for me). It was really good because I explain myself very sincerly. I don't know if it posible I can talk with you when you will be there in Peru, like a feedback of the last years, to improve my perspective for the time to come (the next year least). I wish Krsna helps me to learn to be a good diciple, I ask humbly an interview to place myselve as a diciple to ask humbly your guidance in my attemp to be Krsna conciouss. The last years in Krsna conciousness were super auspicious, but I had in my heart the desire to forget everything and  only do service, and the desire to make my parents happy studying (all this time I could not completly sincere about my desire to be with devotees, because I didn't want to disturb my parents and they desires for me) But this make that I could not either study, either do service with all my heart. And I was changing to one thing to the other trying to find a solution to make both things togheter, but I don't  feel it is working, it is like I don't put my heart completly in any. So this year is like a year were I need to be more sincere about myselve, more clear, to not continue doing things " a medias". It is very difficult to explain, I hope it is posible to have a little interview, because I am not expert in my relationship with you as my guru, but I wish to learn. I like to hear your classes, I try to be attentive, but maybe it is posible to have your guidance in details. I feel very ashamed, but I want to become a vaisnava, and I want to be your diciple.

Hare Krsna Gurudeva
I am waiting for the news of Sattva!

Excuse my offenses!
your servant, b. Natalia

HpS - Jaya!

1.   Thank you for excellent news about school.   So, anybody can serve Krsna according to the opportunity.  We can start with something small and it can become very successful by the mercy of Krsna.   We just have avoid getting in the way!

2.  Our respects to your father.  He is a very nice person.

3. I do the same thing.   Every few years we need to take some time off from our daily habits and review our situation in detail.   We are trying to accomplish a big goal.   In general, Bh Vinode Th. comments that in the beginning we have to balance social, family, body needs and devotional service. Eg. Morning for spiritual life, day time for MAKING MONEY, evening for  e n j o y i n g.  Yet, as we go on we see how they are all integrated in the same effort, improving Gopal's play.

Yes, surely we can talk while we are in Peru.   Maybe hard for much detail during the first pass because only there for a few days.   But that is one of the tricks. Talk a little and make a little progress, and then talk a little more later after we assimilate our new knowledge!
