Dear Guru Maharaja


Please accept our humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to you!


I pray that your dental issues get resolved soon and you are free of pain.


HpS - AgtSP. In material life we enjoy our mouth so, so, so much, no? We enjoy chewing. The pain is just the duality of that material enjoyment.

Shadow reflections of the non-dual pleasure of wresting with Krsna in Goloka?


I hope your visit to the doctor helped.


HpS - Damn fine! Now 85% recovered. Surrendering ]MY[ body two teeth at a time.


Both of us are doing alright and Divya's health is good. We get to dress the small deities, Chota Radha Kalachadji (Divya on Tuesdays) and Radha Govinda (Divya on Thursday and I dress on Tuesday).


ASA - Wow!!! 💥


This time we were fortunate to dress on Vasant Pancami and Advaita Acharya's appearance day. I've attached the photos.


ASA - Just amazing!!!


We have been really involved with the Pujari department here in Kalachandji Dham. We did an entire reorg a couple of weeks back with 6 sub departments and working with devotees to take up the head positions and so on.

Every time I engage in management situations, I am reminded about the principles of


  1. Who am I,
  2. Who are we,
  3. What is the Process [Plan],
  4. What [Things] do we need ?

ASA - We got it as a mystical experience while at Rama ghatta, but Srinivasa Das showed us https://www.amazon.com/Good-Great-Some-Companies-Others/dp/0066620996", that Micron was using and Stanford had come to the same principles.


I came across a letter that Srila Prabhupada wrote in 1973 about Radha Kalachandji.

"I am very much pleased that the Deities are worshiped so nicely and as this continues, the children there will become more and more purified."

I've been thinking about what I am doing and also Dallas as the place that Srila Prabhupada chose to establish his first Gurukula. It was such a nice reciprocation from Srila Prabhupada for what we've been trying to do here in the pujari department!


Can we say that since Prabhupada chose Dallas as the center for education, because of his desire and potency it will be the center for learning in North America like how Navadwip was in Mahaprabhu's time?


HpS - Sanatana Goswami says that every cowherd boy, thinks that he is Krsna's closest friend.

Guess he is ashamed: Why is Krsna so kind to me???? So many other boys live Him so much more than me.

Then SG continues:... and by the nature of the internal potency, it is a fact.

We see that Murfreesboro can also become the center of education in ISKCON!

😃


I am hoping to come and visiting you in Houston this weekend.

HpS - Missed you, but didn't miss you. Right with you now!

Divya Devi Dasi's health is such a source of intense concern.

Maybe she will be personal servant of Saccimata in Nabadvipa in her next life.


Everything we are and we do is only because of your mercy Guru Maharaja🙏


HpS - We are just little bell on the Post Man's foot. AgtSP!

Effects of Martial Art Training

2 months, 3 weeks ago by shatakshi in Sankirtana / Temple Activity Reports

Dear Maharaj,

PAMHO AGTSP!


There is an incredible workshop happening here in Kalarigram. We are now graduating from long and short stick to horn and sword weapons. Such amazing expert teachers! My body is a lot stronger and their confidence in me is so empowering.


I see such an improvement in me from last year! Physically, mentally and emotionally fortified. They say a student of martial arts (4-6hrs/day of intensive training) especially one like Kalari coming from Vedic traditions makes you shed so many negative thoughts and emotions and indisciplining depressiveness to even stand in class.


Kalari is supposed to awaken your kundalini and reactivate Prana in the body and balance that Prana’s movement through your chakras up and down. It’s supposed to balance your ida and pingala energies.


I can see the results in my health too! Finally after 8 months of this struggling sadhana (4-5hrs/day) I’m starting to experience a little drop of its potency. One lecturer shared that Lord Shiva, who himself lived in the mountains created all these art forms for our benefit: dance, yoga and Kalari!


Now I’m starting to understand why you may have advised me to take this training. It was tooth and back breakingly hard in the beginning 😂, but it’s incredibly strengthening.


First the mind’s forbearance has to be activated fully to not drop to being tortured by the intensity of the practice but instead to rise with the prana and be able to tolerate the level of pain!!! I feel like if I continue to train like this, I could lead an army 😂! 🤩


ASA - The Salvation Army [https://www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/]??? 🙂


I don’t know of a better cleanse, from somatic release (sweating till all your clothes are dripping) to washing out and dropping out of your system all excess emotions and baggage.


Otherwise you simply can’t get through so many hours of training in martial arts!

You really learn to work with your mind and body to reduce engagement in draining activities and simultaneously channel natural sources of energy like sound, sun, air, and diet etc. to stay recharge…amazing 🤯.

When you initially gave me this instruction I was honestly a bit shocked.

I felt it so unnatural almost, coming from elegant dancer training into this military martial arts lifestyle.

Now seeing these wonderful results, my heart is filled with such gratitude! Thank you so much Maharaj. 🙏🏻


YAS,

SM DD


HpS - 💥AgtSP... and your Bhakti. Do your instructors et al, know that you are Gaudiya Vaisnava?

Helping with your hearing and chanting?

Manipuri Martial Arts are also accommodating to girls.

Very nice report!

Think is inspiring for everyone.

Seems it may fit in here in The Boro very well!

When is Sri Hari Das coming?



Ramayan in a New Bottle

2 months, 3 weeks ago by shatakshi in Sankirtana / Temple Activity Reports

Maharaj,

PAMHO AGTSP!


You requested to see my work by April 🙏🏻.


HpS/ASA - Well, agtSP, Tom Brown and Buck White were thinking that April 16th [?], Rama-navami, would be a good day for some sneak preview of work in progress.

When is Sri Hari Das reaching Tennessee?

Maybe we can go for a day's outing to Houston for a Director's event.


Here is a basic plot and some descriptions of various characters for the “Ramayan in a New Bottle”.

American's gods [Godhead?] come from British Adventurers,

old gods from Norse or Greek Mythology,

some Abrahamic mythology (Neil Gaiman’s work),

and new gods, [science and industrial] technology.


ASA - USA and Canada = British Adventurers. Other Americans ie. Latin Americans = Spanish Adventurers, also good audience?


I’m trying to show Ravana as made by extra-terrestrial gene splicing, now living in Dubai, as a sheikh in his golden mansion and golden flying car, owns 9 businesses.

Please let me know if you think this is alright and I’ll develop it further.

YAS,

SM DD


HpS - Sorry, taking so long to answer. Even now we are writing with serious headache and of course some eye strain, but happy. Very motivated by this project.

What about, no great SciFi elements, but just using modern types. Eg. Ravana can be the Director, 51% Owner, of a Global business conglomerate, From South India. Even Ceylon.

Not too many character and plot angles have to match. A word to the wise is sufficient.

747 private jet.


Who will be Rama??

Sita???


To die profoundly

Hare Krishna Guru Maharaja, please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!


Still relishing our time with you in Houston. A fire was lit and we are keeping it stoked. Some times there are just red coals and other times there is a lot of light. Maintenance and steadiness is our constant work. Internally crying selfish tears half the time, though. Noticing everyday and sometimes many times within a moment, how I am like a spoiled brat. An ungrateful child in the hands of so much mercy. Not fully taking advantage of what I have been given. A kind of purgatory. And then your voice comes in..Durga has given the reins to Radharani. And your illuminations are remembered. A few things I know by heart and text 3 and statement in the purport of NOI comes to mind/heart: devotional service is so pure and perfect that once having begun, one is forcibly dragged to ultimate success.


Wow.


I endeavor to be dragged? Enthusiasm is more important than patience as I’ve heard you say. We’ve observed that when most rounds are done before breakfast and there is class then that momentum carries and we are able to actually give to others. Otherwise there is nothing to give really and it can feel like hell or purgatory. I don’t want to waist this life that you have given.


A lot of exciting new projects and pioneering work ahead here in New Biharvan dham. Our dear Kalakantha Prabhu has made Boise his number one focus for Krishna House and Krishna Lunch. Him and his good wife Jita Mitra Prabhu will be living here for a year and they are bringing other angels and experts to give us a strong push to get things going.


The New Biharvan perspective and bonsai tree is growing nicely despite so many challenges and opposition. I think about what you said a lot when I am feeling unhopeful..the temple is Sat Cit Ananda. I try to just lean into that and do my duties. Sing to God in His home, fix things here and there and be the janitor. Pretty good gig! Hope to just keep doing this after I die? Long row to hoe..


Here is a song/poem(it will change to fit music) I wrote for you this morning:


Profoundly Dying 


For you, we are trying 


But there is no try, there is only do? 

Well I know what will be done 

Can be done more for you  


Giant steps, baby steps 

Or a slow and steady crawl 

A leap of faith, an effort made 

or a care free flippant fall 


I want more with you 


And connection to that line 

Disciplic succession 

No more waiting for a sign 


It’s you, the one I will die to follow 

It is me, the false ego 

Many bitter pills to swallow 


To garland your shadow 

What is the need? 

When the root is watered 

And it grows from the seed 


Lighter, brighter days ahead 

And the mercy river flows 

Saintly joyous attributes 

From the crown down to the toes 


Rising above the gunas

Your arms stretched out like wings 

Attention sharpens 

If I can only hear you in the mornings 


Divinity blues sung in the darkest hour 

Preservation, cultivation 

Then the light comes rushing in 

As I offer you a flower 


Now it’s a good day to die, to die profoundly 


Thank you Maharaja for the constant inspiration. Your enthusiasm keeps our fire bright and illuminates Srila Prabhupada’s teachings for us. Praying that you heal quickly from the dental surgery! Transcend~dental


Eternally grateful and indebted, your aspiring servants,

Nitisara das, Anadi and Yamuna


P.S. We got the Improvisations for the Theater book like you suggested and have started trying out some of those exercises/games on our own and at Krishna Lounge. Thank you for that suggestion! Amazing young people coming each week and a very very sincere ex Christian.. hallelujah/hare Krishna!


HpS - The beginning part is very nice, where she talks about the fundamental principles of drama theory. she capitalizes the word Environment.

It think it is Paramatma yoga???


Very nice news.

You see we have been drowning in blood etc.

Yet getting to this wonderful mail, no!!



Sankirtan Febrero 2024

Hare Krishna Gurudeva

Please accept my obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada


You are always happy, because you always remain in the service of Prabhupada.


HpS - 🐵

😆

... We have sutures hanging out of our mouth. Too much fat hanging on our belly. Uncomfortable seat but we have a little bubble of relief by doing some mixed service that Srila Prabhupada may make useful and then we can get POWER IN OUR SOUL!

💪

🎉


I have been able to maintain the sadhana of Mangala Arati by the mercy of Krishna.


HpS - Super guy! AgtSP. For 48-minutes, each day, B. Muhurta, the door to cleaning and activating our heart opens up. Get to work!


I continue preaching through WhatsApp, it has been very effective, it is something that I would like to replicate in the congregation when possible.



From time to time I set up a table with books in the Plaza de Cabildo, I do a kind of bhajan with my kartalas, but now I'm going to try doing it with music from a speaker and see how people react. I also do sankirtan person to person when I go out of Cabildo.



There are several persons in Cabildo who are interested, they are reading Prabhupada's books and chanting the Maha Mantra, but I am detached from whether they become devotees or not, since the final decision is always the person's.


HpS - We like when they read TLC or CC!!


For my part, I am a devotee who introduces people to Krishna consciousness and helps them in their first steps. For a deeper understanding, we have a program every Thursday via Zoom to study the Bhagavad Gita by Bhakta René, a Very capable and erudite devotee, he is a good teacher.


HpS/ASA - 🐷

👍

👍

👍


I remain a friend to the people I meet in sankirtan and always strive to encourage people to chant the Maha Mantra.


On the other hand, I will soon begin to publish on my social networks and there I will begin to publish my music, I hope it will be a successful preaching program and that it will be maintained over time.


Thank you Gurudeva, from the bottom of my heart.


Your servant

Piyari Mohan Das


HpS/ASA - How is your Devil Mind 👺

who sometimes creeps out and runs amok???

Thank you so, so much for not giving up and setting an example for all of us in going forward, NOI 3.
