Hare Krishna Maharaja, please kindly accept my most humble obeisances; all glories to his divine grace, Srila Prabhupada, our founder acharya.
In the interest of brevity and out of anxiety I am wanting to keep this very, very quick. It appears that Krishna has coerced me to open my mouth and offer my services as ... (Censored by Buck Wite) . I am nervous as all heck,
ASA - Heck from "hecate", name for the Devil.
(it is a secret mission that maybe involves crossing the Arizona desert)
If it looks like my offer will be approved and accepted by the community and its leaders, I am seeking your permission and blessings to assume responsibility for this service. Otherwise I will be too confused about whether or not this is Krishna's arrangement. Personally, I would love the opportunity to (complete this project and journey), as it would give me a sense of devotional revival and purpose in my life. It will probably be after Janmastami before things are finalized and made official, but I thought it best to seek your blessings now in advance, so that I can proceed in confidence, in the event that my hopes are realized.
ASA - Well if they give you a 20 mule team Borax wagon and lots of water, then it seems practical. As my old Grand Pappy used to say, if its important put it in short, plain Engish, what everybody expects out of the situation. Get everyone to sign it. Only agree to things for a fixed time eg. six months and then review it after that. Good luck. It seems like a nice service but you'll be away from home for few months!
