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!

Bhakti-vaibhava Curriculum Development

5 days, 16 hours ago by hps in Special Category A

Bali-mardana Das has continued with the effort to integrate our Pan-american Bhakti-vaibhava studies with the facilities being offered by the Vidya-pitha in the Govardhana Eco Village near Mumbai.

The report from Gauranga-darshana Das, Hemarupa Caitanya Das and Sankirtana Das from there side is that they are still posting the materials for on-line study at there website for Canto Six.

Our ASA idea is that the esteemed devotees in San Jose with Srivasa pandita Das and Houston with Radha-krsna Das and Hari-lila Das, who are finishing the six canto study should integrate with the sixth canto on-line course from the VP for the mutual benefit and for development of the program for all time.

We will try to keep you informed.

Hare Krsna Dear Maharaja,


All glories to your sankirtana!

All glories ASA team!

By Srila Prabhupada's mercy, we can have the association of the wonderful sankirtana of ASA Team, Krsna allow us to continue associating with this team.

Thank you very much by answer my previos letter.

Please, I have 2 question more about SBG class of tuesday ( in a previos of a previos letter I asked these questions but i do not writed well key word) :

HpS - ASA -- I think you did things fine, but we were just slow in ansering.

1.- What topics do you suggest for the participation of the devotees?

You gave topics about the great devotees (vaisnavis) of Krishna, could we continuos with this themes?

ASA - We answered. Hope it was O.K.

As a contribution, I give these proposals:

1. SBG canto 1 chapter 7 Drona son punished.

2.SBG canto 1 chapter 8 Prayers of Queen Kunti and Pariksit saved

3 Teachings of The Queen Kunti 26 textos (the book) (It seems to me hear from you, mentioned that in the purport of this book is general and it do not refer directly to the verse, is it?

2.- Can English-speaking devotees take up these themes or will they develop other theme?

Please, give me your guide. I am trying to help to my spiritual cousins sisters.

Sri Nrsimhadeva protect you

with respect and apreciaton

Note: Abhinanda d after quarantine has started working, he doing home and office furniture.

HpS - Yes, answer in previous letter. Our slowness.

"KDPC" Consult about topics (tuesday class)

1 week, 2 days ago by Isvari devi dasi in Special Category A

Hare Krsna Dear Maharaja,


All glories to your sankirtana!

I hope team ASA (Monkey,Piggy, Tom Brown) are very good.

I request you please, Give me your opinion on the following:

I.- Trying to understand and follow the line of subjects that you gaved (about vaisnavis), I think that this topics could be exposed in the next class of tuesday:

1.- Prayers of the Queen Kunti and Pariksit saved. SBG 1 chapter 8

2..-The Son of Drona punished. SBG chapter 7

3.- Teachings of Queen Kunti. (have 26 textos)

These chapters are very extensive and would be divided into several sections.

Is good this topics? or What topics do you think is most appropriate?, please give me your opinion.

HpS - AGTSP these are nice. I think an index of "Stri dharma" in the first two cantos would be a wonderful contribution. Some of Kunti Rani's prayers talk about or show Stri dharma, but others talk about other wonderful topics.

II.-Can english-speaking devotees be included in these rol of themes or will they develop other themes?

HpS - I don't know? Let us see if they respond. It takes time to build a team. Maybe a transcendent team!

THank very much for your mercy, Sri Nrsimhadeva protect you

Whit very affection and gratitude

ys and spiritual niece

HpS - ASA ----- Thank you!! Everyone. We hope your daughters are growing up to do wonderful things for society.

Special Memory of Hanumat Presaka Maharaj and Bhakti Charu Maharaj - Sept 11- 2015

1 week, 2 days ago by Subhradevidasi in Special Category A

Hare Krishna Dearest Devotees,

ISKCON 50 Celebrations at ISKCON Houston bring back some special, nectarian memories.

We had the causeless mercy and good fortune of hosting my beloved Guru Maharaj, H. H. Bhakti Caru Swami, at our humble abode during His stay.

Inconceivably, the mercy kept increasing. This was the first opportunity we had to serve both H. H. Hanumat Presaka Maharaj and my Guru Maharaj, for lunch together ...  a desire fulfilled after fifteen years.

Sept 11 2015…

Sweet reciprocation between two Godbrothers: Bear Hugs… Honoring Prasad ...Sweet conversation... Karate lesson…

Without further ado, I will let the pictures below tell the stories …
