A fool's ramblings

Dear Guru maharaj,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I hope this finds you in good health. 

This past weekend, our Bhakti Lounge preaching center had a small retreat for the guests that have been coming regularly to the center. It was the first time I have been in charge of kitchen duty; cooking prasadam for about 20 people is not as easy as it sounds. Some tears, chastisements, burnt granola, sour curry, and vegan lasagna were a few of the highlights; however, it was worth it. A good experience by all means. I'm not sure if I would do it again!

On another note, in my my last post I told you about the dakshina that I collected for you. Your reply was baffling. I might have to cook a lot of potato and squash for Krishna. I apologize for doubting your instruction because I'm a fool. Are you sure you don't want it sent to you? If it is you request that it be used for bhoga then I humbly comply. 

Sadhana is... there. Minimum 16 rounds, 4 regs, not too much reading I regret, sankirtan in some form or another- not neccesarily book distribution. Life is moving along in the temple. My tulasi service is my main concentration although I feel my effort in it is lacking. Do you know how to eliminate spider mites and white flies? There seems to be a slight infestation of both culprits in her leaves.

Jaya Nitai!!! Our bhakti lounge crew meets on Sundays for Srimad Bhagavatam classes. On Nityananda's appearance day, I gave my first ever class which lasted 10 seconds. Speaking in such a way is very scary for me. I did not do a good job. I prefer to sing in public than to speak. I prefer to go out on book distribution than to give class any day. Anyways, too much rambling. It has been a month so I have alot to say! :D

In conclusion, I figured out that Prabhupada is absolutely the boss. I like getting the service to wrap his chaddar around him before he goes to sleep. He is boss :)

Jaya Prabhupada!!

Your aspiring servant,

Rasa-mandali dd

HpS - Jaya!   So nice to hear from you.    Our reporter from Toronto, aye?   No, don't know how to get rid of the white flys but I hear there are manuals.    Devotee in San Jose California has a 9 foot tall tulasi that started from nothing.  In San Jose usually no more than 2 feet tall.

Invest the money in books and then distribute them and whatever income there is we can keep that for Anjana Suta Academy Toronto, a branch of ISKCON!

Very good luck in all your service.

Are you investigating Grhastha ashrama?

I hope that this good

HpS - AGTSP  paoho   Struggling just like you!

Here we are in Krsna consciousness, trying to make progress

Sorry for my English, the Google translator and I may fail,  ahah ...

Sorry that you could not write this month
I tell him that we are here to organize everything for your coming to our country. I feel there is much connection between the brothers and good vibes, and that makes me very happy.
I hope to serve to you personally.
Prabhupada is so great ... I can not stop thanking his mercy every day. I'm reading the nectar of devotion, very carefully and try to implement more and more.

HpS - Dhanurdara Swami's book, Waves of Devotion, helps a LOT.


For now once a week I go to mangal arati to the temple with devotees, and in my home I try to wake up as early as possible. It's hard work for me to do, but his inspiration makes me feel strong and determined.
I'm still working at the restaurant of the temple and also with the fixed service cleaning the kitchen.

We are putting together a group of kirtan with some devotees to play nama hathas, Bhakti Vriksas and once a month in the Sunday celebrations in the temple. http://kirtanmovil.blogspot.com/?z

Also these days I was thinking about making some t-shirts for the devotees, I send a design to see what you think.

I do not get more time
Was eager to write, and transmit all that is happening.
See you soon
Thanks for your time and inspiration
eternally grateful

Please forgive my offenses
My most humble obeisances unto you

your aspirant
Bhakta Daniel

Hare Krishna!

HpS - Jaya!   Hare Krsna.  So we see you Within 2-weeks! Is nice logo!!!!

Respuestas a sus preguntas

HpS - ASA ---  Jaya!  Esta bien.   Ooof!  En Africa tiene un raiz para comer cada semana y guerra civil.  Ooooff!    Esta bien su situacion.   Pero si,  tiene que adjustar.   Que puede hacer para pagar su deuda moral al Templo?   Como puede hacer un servicio aun esta sancionado?   Puede limpiar el patio?  El fronte del Temlo afuera???      Adelante. Resolver estas problemas.  Como esta su estimad Associada?????

AGTSP, AGTHPS. Hare krishna querido Srila Gurudeva, porfavor acepte mis reverencias. Tratando de responder su pregunta queria decir que me he dado cuenta que es muy dificil tratar de solucionar mi deuda moral con el templo, creo que lo unico que debo hacer es ser humilde, aceptar mis errores, y tratar de contribuir en lo que puedo por ahora, de esa manera creo que las cosas pueden sanar.

HpS - ASA ---  Haribolo!    TlgaSP    pfanrh.     Fin de cuentas.    Todo bien.   Adelante con la Yuga dharma, la cual no es adoracion de la deidad en el Templo es Sannkirtan, glorificando el senor por recitando Santos Nombres y Srimad Bhagavatam juntos por todo media. Y nuestra posicion en la San Kirtan - trna api sunicena....

Para eso Gurudeva he tomado el mismo servicio que hacia cuando llegue al templo que es limpiar la cocina despues de la fiesta de viernes, porque asi me recuerda todo el esfuerzo que hice para llegar donde estoy y valorar a los devotos que me han dado tantas cosas. Por otra parte abrimos un bhakti vriksa con algunos devotos cerca de mi casa, y por la misericordia de Srila Prabhupada me estoy encargado de dirigirlo, espero tener sus bendiciones para que todo sea un exito, porque realmente me ayuda a recordar lo importante que es este proceso. Asi que hare todo y un poco mas para salir adelante.

con respecto a como esta Kriya Sakti, le cuento que ella esta bien terminando su tesis y volviendo con el bhakti sastri de patraka, ademas tiene su servicio de las guirnaldas en el templo. De igual manera nosotros ahora no estamos juntos, creo que se lo habia comentado, si quiere hablar de este tema podria ser por skype o por mail, ya que por aqui me siento un poco incomodo.

espero que usted este muy bien, y nos vemos pronto.

su sirviente, abhimanyu das
