Instituto Jaladuta Argentina 2023

Hare Krishna dear Gurumaharaja,

Please accept my humbles obeinsances.

All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Quite some time has passed since the last time I wrote to you. I was having some difficulties with the password to access the website. Today, I tried again with a different password and it worked.

asa - 🙂

Currently, we are living in Cordoba, Argentina. About a year ago, we managed to purchase a place where we could live and at the same time carry out educational projects. It's a 3.5-hectare property with 3 houses, each of them varying in size. Thanks to the infrastructure of the houses, in early 2023, we were able to host Bhakti Bhushana Swami and accommodate 30 devotees.

asa - 👍

In the middle of last year, along with Dhanvantari Swami, we conceived the idea of establishing the Jaladuta Institute here on our premises for the year 2023. After a lot of effort, we were able to bring the project to fruition. 13 devotees from different parts of South America enrolled, and since May, we have been conducting the Bhakti Sastri course in our home, which will conclude by the end of November 2023.

Maharaja Dhanvantari stayed with us for 3 months at the beginning of the course, teaching his Bhakti Sastri curriculum.

The course is progressing very well; we have fixed morning programs every day, along with open Sunday programs for the community.

The Jaladuta Institute project in Argentina is inspiring many individuals, and we have received excellent feedback from local yatra authorities.

Being fully engaged in this project has brought tremendous enthusiasm to my family and me to serve in Srila Prabhupada's mission and to continue assisting in the field of education within ISKCON.

We offer this service at the lotus feet of our Gurudevs and hope to be able to continue serving in this area.

Maharaja Dhanvantari has the idea of conducting the Bhakti Sastri course in person every other year in Argentina, alternating with a year in Brazil, one year in Portuguese and the next in Spanish.

We would greatly like to extend an invitation for you to visit Argentina and spend some days here during this year.

HpS/ASA - 😦

Are you reading the 'Kapi Dhvaja'? 😃

It is so nice to have the invitation, but looking at at least three different factors we are estimating that we will be leaving this old, tired body, donkey, about September 2023.

Tired dog.

But happy.

At least we only travel now if someone picks us up at our door and brings us back.

Certainly we are considering invitations to talk about Krsna and go places, but we have to put them in proportion to our energy. 🚥

Such nice, news. Hear Srila Prabhupada's books, read the to others.

Nothing else needs to be done, no?

Please engage us in your Sankirtan as you see our nature and strength!

Thank you.

Thanks to, Mataji, all the Cordobites!

Thank you!!!

Your servant,

Dear Maharaj,


Maharaj please don’t apologize for replying late 🙏, we are very grateful you think of us.

We are learning stick fighting sequences here, long stick and short stick.

Then they will teach fighting with metal weapons (sword, short, medium, flexible, javalin), then finally fighting with bare hands.

We have learnt many variations of fighting positions (elephant, lion, boar, snake, fish, cat, cock etc).

It’s intense (my vit D levels dropped and I developed lower back pain, and a bad tooth filling popped from clenching/ joined 2 Yr diploma 5-6hrs/day).

Now I’m recovering and reduced few classes until my body understands what to do.

The calls for all the movements are in Malayali, as this artform originated from Kerala.

We are making meticulous notes for future students. I’m constantly wondering which choreographies can be made with these fight sequences. Quite professional.

We were working on the film for you with Yogi from Houston, but got a bit stuck feeling inadequate. Have to learn more about filmmaking.

HpS - ASA - AgtSP!!!! Paoho.... thank you for writing us, ASA. Which Yogi???

In a few weeks I go to Mandi IIT to teach 3 credit course. 14 days, 4hrs/day intensive. 1.5hrs yoga/pranayama/yoga Nidra, 1 hr Odissi, 0.5hrs theory, some HW.

We are trying to design a before and after psychological evaluation for students to fill to understand the therapeutic properties of oriental practices.

HpS - Jaya! Bet it reduces Parkison's Disease.

In the meantime I’ve been applying to PhD programs, emailing professors in US (Harvard/Stanford/MIT etc) interested in research psychotherapeutic benefits of oriental practices to see if my proposal will click. Also applying to AFI, USC, NYU. Wherever Krsna gives scholarship and admission, we will go 🙏.

I've been reading SB daily, need to improve hearing. Morning chanting a little disturbed due to early classes here (but strive for 16rnds before breakfast). Trying to figure out a schedule our body can cope with mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. For this week I’m going to skip morning class so I can chant in Brahms muhurta.



HpS - Thank you so much. I'm sure a lot of people take good perspective on their own service and Sankirtan from your news.

How about your family?

Poppa, Momma, BIG BROTHER et al?

Any Yatra friends and associates?

Where are you camped specifically? In Vraja?

Thank you!

I'm sure Krsna will give you more and more guidance from directly within your heart!!!

Thank you!

Hare Krishna!

acepte mis reverencias!!!.

Thank you for your prompt response.

I can serve you in whatever you need, while the possibility allows it for the magazine and some type of study or edition.

Abhirama has responded to us on time and has given us time to finish the article.

I worked on on ecological issues and also Jung´ideas.

We cannot dimension Jung´s work, but we have been a student with his book memories, dreams, and thoughts and the sacred symbolism.

It strikes me, maharaja, that when i was a child, he had certain frears of the figures of the catholic church, and this makes a lot of sense to me. Its connection with universal and symbolic aspects.

When looking at the 'Solaris' recommendations for publications the sacred and devotional aspects needed to complement some ideas;

So we will include fragments of the Light of the Bhagavata; the cyclical time of the Kalpas; and maybe something else about Srila Prabhupada´s synthesis like the simple life and farming.

Any recommendation?

HpS - Are you working on a specific article for 'Solaris'? I don't know it. Sounds very interesting and you sound like you are contributing very well.

Can you link the article for us?

How can i work as an editor... ? at the moment i only have articles. I will send a thesis that is the useful material for the articles, and also part of the article for Abhirama Das.

HpS - That is great. What country are you in??? Chile?? 😕


Stories of the Universe

Hare Krishna Guru Maharaj

Please accept my humble obeisances,

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada,


Last week, I requested permission to use Krishna Art images in the English version (Stories of the Universe), but my request was denied because they consider my project not as good as modern productions like Disney and Century Fox.

ASA - 😲

Unfortunately, creating a professional production as desired by the devotees in "Los Angeles" would cost me 1-Billion dollars, and I don't think I'll achieve that in this lifetime.


For this reason, I am turning to artificial intelligence to design my own artworks for the

Srimad Bhagavatam, so I won't have to rely on approvals. I am attaching some

images for you to see, as I am still optimizing them.


ASA - Super. After you have some more production, ask them again.

We saw documentary of life of Confucious. He did so much work to synthesize and teach the classical wisdom of China for the good of humanity and The Higher Good, but materialistic kings thwarted him and his most promising student died. He died thinking that he was a failure, but he has been one of the most influential persons in the history of the world. Even now people are leaving Mao's philosophy and returning to Confusious.

So we do the right thing with the resources given and depend on Krsna for the magic.

Considering the bad experience, do you recommend that my project remain connected to the Ministry of Congregational Preaching (MPC)? Or would it be better as a personal project? Or is it better to join NIOS? The MPC could possibly hinder the dissemination of my project in the future, similar to the "Krishna Art" department.

HpS - We can't say. We just don't know.

Politics in ISKCON can become very materialistic at times. GBC, Sannyasi, Gurus can fall into abominable (suduracaro) activities and take their branch of the institution with them. This is normal. So, make it a personal project, make it a part of NIOS.

With whom are you consulting in Peru?


I will be grateful for your guidance in these circumstances.

ASA - Super art. Have you got Sankirtan partners?


Murari Sevaka // NIOS Campus

1 month, 3 weeks ago by nkd1010 in Sankirtana / Temple Activity Reports

Dear Hanumat Presaka Swami,

   Please accept my respectful obeisances!  All glories to Srila Prabhupada!


    We are  praying that ISKCON Murari Sevaka will fit into Your schedule next weekend. 

HpS/ASA - AgtSP!!!! Paoho. Wovw!  We just got to this mail. We did not recognize your esteemed name.

Usually we try to answer within three to five days, and if there is no answer, devotees are welcome to send a Wake Up Call to our Whatsapp number.

It was a

Super Fragalistic Expialidoshas.

visit for all five of us in our car.

Just super.

  1. Excellent association with other visitors.
  2. Relief from motorized, industrialized life.
  3. Getting slobbered on and knocked over by Jambavan the cuddly, loveable Bear-King Dog.
  4. Talking with goats.
  5. Resting in a rustic cabin.
  6. Seeing Lord Caitanya and Nityananda face to face (4-feet tall).
  7. Association with Their pujaries including history of the devotion of Murari sevaka farm.
  8. Kirtans/Krsna katha.
  9. Real ISKCON American food feast. Baked potatoes and cherry cobbler. Gaura Nitai must be glad They came to America.

. . .

And that we become one of Your regular Temples to visit and bless and purify. 

We still have so much work to do; but we have steadily and progressively worked towards cleaning and beautifying and rebuilding the transcendental Home of Sri Sri Nitai Gaurachandra, while being granted the most special gift of caring for and worshiping Srila Prabhupada and Sri Sri Nitai Gaurachandra. 

And to offer a weekly Saturday Love Feast to all souls seeking shelter at the Lord’s Lotus Feet. 

Bhakta Ruslan and Kevin have been great supporters in this endeavor. By the extreme mercy of Guru and Gauranga we are able to serve Here.  And protect Krishna’s cows, too.  And goats.  And peacocks and peahens.  And cats.  And our 3 Great Pyrenees are guarding all of us, under the direction of Krishna in their hearts! 

We have encountered major obstacles every single step of the way.

Last Summer/Fall we went 91 days without a drop of running water on the property.  The contaminated, shallow well which was Murari’s water supply for all these years finally went dry. 

After much hardship and endeavor Murari Sevaka now has clean, stable water coming in.

With Bhakta Kevin’s help we are ready to attract hundreds of new devotees in the area with Harinama/Sankirtan and bring back the already existing Devotees who no longer participate at Murari and sculpt out the most beautiful Abode in the state of Tennessee for the pleasure of Sri Sri Nitai-Gaurachandra and Srila Prabhupada and my Guru Maharaja and all the Devotees and Neighbors and Pilgrims.

And we would like to offer our services and whatever we have to You and NIOS. 

    Yesterday I mowed and cleared a nice japa trail for Your visit, through the beautiful valley directly North of the Temple Building.  Tomorrow I will widen it enough to comfortably accommodate at least 3 people side by side. 

Joey Burns, our amazing plumber is coming out to install a toilet and plumb in a shower for the men’s side of the bathhouse tomorrow morning as well.

HpS - Yes, we were observing all these things and noting that this was only by effort of big personal contributions.

    Please mercifully accept our invitation and come out to Murari next week.  We are looking so forward to hearing from and serving You.  And I pray this message was not too terribly long.

                   Your servant,

                   Mitravinda gopi dd


HpS - It is not too long.

When we saw that Gaura-Nitai had given us $201 in donations, we felt embarrassed, so we put $100 back in Their donation box for more service as guided by Their pujaris.

We expect to leave our present body in Fall 2024, so we are trying to consolidate our things, plans, relationships.

Maybe we come back as children in Murari.

Murari has seemed to far away for easy development from Nashville of Atlanta. I heard that it was planned as a combined rural center for both, but it seems too far away for either!!! ?

We have been looking to develop a Campus near Nashville for "Teacher Training" and "Educational Administrator Training" for ISKCON et al. Then the teachers and administrators can organize the rest of our institutional education.

The Buddhists had Nalanda.

The Mormons have Brigham Young University.

Nashville is centrally located for national transportation.

Not as crowed as East Coast.

Many churches seem to already have their Universities here.

It would seem nice to have a Campus 24-minutes from the airport:

Land Friday after noon.

The Campus station wagon picks you all up with other arrivals.

Get settled in to the well arranged accommodations.

Friday evening reception for students and like dinner.

Saturday morning three classes.

Afternoon workshops.

Evening entertainment.

Sunday morning closure and connected up to continue your classes on-line and return after six to twelve weeks.

Thirty residential students, 30-seminar students/weekend. 12-teachers.

Six vanaprastha/brahmans owning their own houses around the central campus.

Behind them garden, orchard and animal space.

Other devotees buy property within bicycle distance.

FM radio station with five mile radius.

😃 Of course, all this could change quickly if China, or Russia, or Canada starts a nuclear war etc.

What service base would you envision for Murari?


Requested report



I’ve been working on the following:

Chanting, Srimad Bhagavatam reading, cooking/cleaning, PhD Applications, Kalaripayattu Martial Art training, Mandi IIT Indian knowledge systems course teaching (Odissi) 🙏.



HpS//ASA - Super! Super!


Hope to hear more from you when you get to the [?] Devil Sea!

Hare Krsna!!! Hare Rama!!!

Where are you camping?

How is the Pappa and Brother and Mother?

Travel plans???

All joking aside. Watch out. Krsna is notorious for making strange plans with people's lives.
