URGENT: NOI Commentary Monthly Update

2 weeks, 1 day ago by srinath in Special Category A

Dear Guru Maharaj

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

I transcribed texts 7, 8 and 9 last month. I will complete the text 10 and 11 in the next few weeks. By the next report transcription of commentaries of the texts should be complete.

Radhika Raman prabhu has not had much time to edit. After coming back from Europe a couple of weeks back, he was busy working on a paper for a conference. He will have a few days in July but will get more time in August to get the bulk of the editing work done.

He was saying he didn't get the email with your comments on his edited sample. Guru Maharaja, can you please send the email when you get a chance so that he can incorporate those comments when he edits.

You also mentioned about Japa Joe in Houston. I have downloaded the file from the archives and it has such wonderful instructions. How would you like to proceed with it Guru Maharaja? Radhika Raman prabhu was suggesting that it could be an appendix in the NOI commentary book.

Mukunda Datta prabhu was here in Dallas last week and we were able to serve him by making breakfast prasadam for him. We spent some time with him and it was very inspirational for us.

We miss having your association and hope to meet you in August in Houston when you come back from your preaching tour.

Your servant

Srinatha Krsna dasa

Thank you so much! The Kapi Dhvaja is about to go with Monkey and Piggys news. I guess Japa Joe can follow after NOI as a separate book. We can enhance it with your and Mataji's realization. Respects to Prof. Gupta.

Can't get access to our Yahoo Sent folder right now. Can you give us an approximate date of when we would have sent the edits? I think I talked to Radhika about this and maybe sent it again last month???

Again, thank you.

DYING for KRSNA.

Calendar news for you in the Kapi Dhvaja.

*Urgente!* Iniciacion / consulta visita bs as

TLGASP!

Por favor acepte mis humildes reverencias a Sus pies de loto.

HpS - Pies de [media] loco.

Soy bhaktina Lali, de Bs As. 

En su última visita hablamos de homeschooling y programas para devotas con hijos. 


Mi sadhana está bien, aunque aún hay que acomodar los horarios, entre mi trabajo y mi pequeña hija Govinda a veces se hace difícil cantar japa bien temprano, entonces voy haciéndolo durante el día. (Tengo que mejorar esto!).

Tengo deidades de Gaura Nitai, una devota las está pintando, le pido sus bendiciones para poder atenderlas en mi hogar. Usted está de acuerdo con que las instale?

HpS - Como entendemos, puedes ofrecerles tu amor a ellos bajo la autoridad de Srila Prabhupada, pero no están oficialmente instalados. Eso es algo grande y requeriría consideración a nivel de GBC. Bajo la autoridad de Srila Prabhupada, guarde las deidades de Gaura-Natai en su casa y sirva a ellas con amor, limpieza y puntualidad y más detalles de parafernalia y rituales.

Una buena ofrenda de un tiempo regular es la comida, la flor, la lámpara y las fragancias. ¡Habla con los brahmanas locales sobre más detalles! Te veo pronto.

Sigo con mi servicio fijo para el Ratha Yatra Bs As en la organización del festival.

Junto a Rati Manjari dd hago servicio en secretaría y en la organización de su visita a nuestro yatra. Con Vrisabhanu Nandini dd estamos planeando programas para los niños, mientras Usted da las conferencias y/o clases en el templo. Tiene alguna sugerencia sobre qué temas podríamos tratar con los pequeños devotos?

ASA - Tener kirtan y bhajans con ellos. habla de los pasatiempos de Krsna y Rama etc.

Con las devotas que tienen hijos pequeños tenemos un grupo, en el cual nos ayudamos entre todas, para avanzar en conciencia de Krsna. Espero pronto llevar a cabo sus instrucciones, y tener un grupo de prédica para los niños y las madres. Estamos avanzando en la investigación de homeschooling, aunque no hay muchos devotos entusiastas con este tema.

Hace unos meses hago servicio en Crecer Vaisnava. Karuna Sakti DD me permite servir y aprender a su lado, a pesar de la distancia.

Desde hace tiempo los devotos me están animando a formalizar mi relación con usted y yo también creo que este puede ser el momento de tomar iniciación, si es que lo considera propicio ¿Qué piensa Usted de eso?

HpS - Pienso es bueno, pero necesita carta de su Presidente del Templo. Esta Vd. realizando todos los requisitos que hay en nuestra "guru-tattva"?

La próxima semana daré el exámen, cuento con la recomendación de las autoridades del templo de Bs. As.

HpS - Si!!

Le pido disculpas por todas mis ofensas. Mi deseo más sincero es poder servirlo, y ser un instrumento en su prédica para la misión de Srila Prabhupada.

Perdón por la carta tan extensa Espero se encuentre muy bien.

Su aspirante a sirviente,

bktn Lali 

HpS - ASA - muy bien. Diksa es bueno. Es como matricular formalmente en la universidad.

President Trump

I have heard that President Trump facilitated the 1976 Ratha Yatra that Srila Prabhupada attended. When it comes to judging someone we have imperfect senses, the propensity to make mistakes, and the propensity to give an opinion from information our mind has been filled with from a cheating media. If president Trump helped put on the Rathayatra he is a devotee of Krishna and thus glorious.

ASA - Hmmm. There are different levels of devotees, no? https://www.vedabase.com/en/noi/5


URGENT: NOI Commentary Monthly Update

1 month, 2 weeks ago by srinath in Special Category A

Dear Guru Maharaja

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

I transcribed texts 4, 5 and 6 this month. Your comments gave me more clarity on how to associate with devotees. It would be very beneficial for everyone when the books comes out.

Since the last update, I have transcribed 3 more texts. This month was the most productive month. I was able to transcribe 3 texts in spite of some travel. My goal is to finish transcription of all the texts by mid July.

Radhika Raman prabhu is in Europe now. We spoke before he left and estimated that it would take him about 2-3 weeks of full time work to edit the entire commentary. He will be able to spare at least a week in June. My next letter in June should have updates on the editing front also. We are still targeting the end of summer for a first draft edited version.

Thank you so much for giving us the service Gurudeva.

Your servant

Srinatha Krsna dasa

HpS - Thank you so much. We hope that this effort stimulates others to communicate with us about the NOI and then we can even collect a bibliography or even on-line or real library of materials such as the efforts that Bh V. Thakur made.

Books are the basis, no?

Wild Weekend in Sri Mayapur Dhama

1 month, 3 weeks ago by Mishra Bhagavan Dasa in Special Category A

THE APPEARANCE DAY of Lord Nrishinghadeva turns Mayapur into a festival frenzy. Mathura's King Kamsa of Krishna Lila became Chand Kazi in Gaura Lila. Under orders from Hussein Shah, who was the king of the Bengal empire and Jarasandha in Krishna Lila, the Kazi caused disturbance during kirtan performance by breaking the mrdangas. The Lord appearing in the form of Nrishingha, put fear in the Kazi's heart. Sri Chaitanya however, gave him prema and thus made the Kazi a great devotee.

Jayapataka Swami told us that Lord Nrishinghadeva came to Mayapur to take some rest after vanquishing Hiranyakasipu. Bhaktivinode Thakur said, " At this abode of Nrishingha I will roll about on the ground in ecstatic love begging for unalloyed love of Krishna. In my heart reside duplicity, insincerity, the desire for fame and the six enemies beginning with lust. therefore I will pray at the feet of Lord Nrishingha to purify my heart and give me the desire to serve Krishna."

ASA - Jaya! Om namo bhagavate narasimhaya... Kill the demons (in our heart!).

The festival began with a huge agni hotra fire yajna. After a five day load in, the courtyard to the temple had a big pit made of mud and cow dung. The fire was huge with Bhakti Vidya Purna Swami's boys rattling off many mantras and the Hare Krishna mantra being sung in the temple room. Many guests came for the weekend. Must have been over a hundred thousand easy.

Bhagavatam Classes were given by Gopal Krishna Goswami, Jayapataka Swami, and in Bengali, Bhakti Purushottama Swami. I went to Srila Tamal Krishna Goswami's samadhi to pray. There I met my friend Hayagriva Prabhu. He maintains Goswami's samadhi making a daily offering and arotik.

Hayagiva and I decided to get some cows milk. In India to get pure cow's milk we have to walk a coup[le of miles to Ghose village. the house of Tappan Ghose is very sattvik. The family there live just like in Lord Chaitanya's time. No television, computers, or radio racket. Mataji makes cow dung circles all over the ground that keep away mosquitoes.

We watch the cow get milked and the liquid religion go from the bucket direct into my 3 litre container. Coming back we walk on the same path Lord Chaitanya would wander while chanting Hare Krishna. We pass the place that Madhai built a bathing ghat for purification.

cont'd in Part Two!
