Crecer Vaisnava and Report KSDD

Hare Krsna dear Guru Maharaja

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada and all glories to you

Please accept my obeisances

Long time ago I do not write on the blog and I beg your pardon.

HpS-ASA - AGTSP! It is small fault compared to our many! So good to see you.

Although I read daily your instructions and I can find similar situations to what I am living, so, I take your instructions as if they were for me.

My personal report:

For your mercy without cause we maintain ourselves chanting 16 rounds, following 4 principles, regular morning Sadhana, daily lecture of srila prabhupada’s books and we regularly listen to classes online. We maintain our service on the temple. Raja bhoga on Wednesdays and garlands on Saturday.

I’m trying to support Prabhu Arya-Srestha Das, according to my possibilities. Even there still are things that hurts me, but I’ve left it aside and above that I see him as a great devotee that has gone through adverse situations; so I’m trying to be a support and not a burden. Our deals are cordial and he is striving to correct his mistakes, we share Rajas Bhoga service on Wednesdays… after all… we will always be united by the service to you and Srila Prabhupada.

HpS - ASA - As you describe the situation, we would say that any gentleman is very fortunate to have the association of a lady like you. Thank you. Our respects to, Prabuji also.

My sakirtana report “Crecer Vaisnava” :

For your mercy without cause I have worked in this service for almost 6 years. Our intention is to bring support tools for parents and instructors vaisnavas. We have a facebook page, we have 3000 followers and the last statistic we have a range of 12.2 thousands of visits in one month.

-His holiness Guru Prasad Swami, has given us his authorization as GBC of our zone and he likes our service.

-We share articles for Grihastras, Parents, and Instructors. Quotes from Srila Prabhupada, material for kids, videos, songs, work books, children’s book, etc…

For your mercy without cause, this year various vainavas have joined to our team and we are realizing new material, they are really anxious in collaborating and it inspires me to continue.

Like maybe you remember, Crecer Vaisnava, translated the book of Homeschooling some time ago. So since that time I am in touch with Prabhu Abhirama about it, we are coordinating each other and he things that it would be possible to publish it in Mid-year. 

-In addition we have organized some conferences online with Mataji Aruddha about the Homeschooling topic, in different Yatras. (Chile, Mexico City, Cueramaro and Tulancingo) many parents have been attracted to the topic, and we have done links with some devotees that realizes home Education, since we are Crecer Vaisnava we are tracking them.

-Following the conferences we have achived a group of studies of the Homeschooling of Mataji Aruddha. Actually there are 15 devotees on the group. The parents are really enthusiastic and committed. We are learning a lot.

-We published a bimestrial magazine ”Educando para el hogar Crecer Vaisnava”. On it we share articles about devotees like Mataji Urmila, Mataji Aruddha and also we interviwed to senior devotees from different Yatras… Parents are eager to learn about the experiences of others and it looks like a good tool.

This is a little proof of what we have done during this time, we would like very much to be useful for your Sankirtan, we ask you to instruct us in how we can please you. We would like to know, ¿How can we subordinate to the Anjana Suta Academy?

HpS - I don't think there is any need to be formally a "Branch" of ASA. This communication is wonderful format for being part of the Occult ASA. You have your formal authority from the local Temple etc. O.K.?

Thanks Gurudeva, because you are the one who pushes us to try to be useful on the transcendental Sankirtana of Srila Prabhupada.

Please forgive me for the long letter. We reiterate our obeisances and eternal thanks.

Your aspirant to servant

HpS - Is not too long. Is very wonderful thing you are doing. We hope it goes to Spain, Peru, Argentina etc!!!! Send us news from time to time.

News from Radhakunda

2 months ago by radhakundamataji in Special Category A

PAMHO

AGTSP

Srila Prabhupada used to say that Radhakund is for relishing and that is true. Here we have festivals every other day and even if we do not have a reason we have a festival.

These days we had three wonderful festivals.

First, we celebrated the appearance day of Sri Gadadhar prabhu, one of the most confidential associates of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and in Krsna lila is Srimati Radharani,so we went to the temple of Nitai Gour Gadadhara to listen an ecstatic kirtan and to see the abisheka and full bungalow decoration.

gadādhara-paṇḍitādi — prabhura nija-śakti

tāṅ’-sabāra caraṇe mora sahasra praṇati

I offer my respectful obeisances unto the internal potencies of the Lord, of whom Sri Gadadhar prabhu is the foremost. C.c adi 1.41

HpS - In Gaura lila Gadadhara is more like Rukmini? Radharani without Her humor, because Krsna is stealing it?

Second. This week was the advent of Jahnava devi, who was One of the wives of Sri Nityananda and a very Influential character for all the gaudiya vaishnavism. This is one of my favourite utsava since Jahnava ma is so merciful that she allows us to make flower dress for her to wear during the adhivas (the first day). This festival last 5 days during which we can hear lila kirtan chanting her glories and the fifth day is the dhulotsava, this is something like holi but Instead of throwing colors, people throw duly (dust from Vraja) after that everybody goes to take bath in Radhakund, this is the closing of the festival.

Ogo Sri jahnava devi, E dase karuna karo

Aji nija gune, Guchao jantrana

"O Jahnava devi, by virtue of your own good qualities, show compassion to this servant today and remove my afflictions."

ASA - http://gaudiyahistory.iskcondesiretree.com/jahnava-mata/

And third, as I wrote at the beginning, if we don't have a reason it doesn't matter, we make a festival. Last week we had a "saptaha" here at home, just to please our Kunja Bihari. That is, for seven days Srimad Bhagavatam is read and explained, after these 7 days we had 24 hours kirtan and then we made a parikrama around Radhakunda carrying the Grantha and a tulasi plant and finally we made vaishnava seva.

As you can read Radhakund is really the best place for relishing.

HpS - Seems that Radha-kunda is were we serve Krsna directly and Mayapura is where we serve Lord Caitanya's Sankirtan? Mangos and Bananas? How is your household? You can see we have ticket so visit India for twelve days in October. Look in the Calendar Development filter.

Srila Prabhupada ki jaya

Radha Kunja Bihari ki jaya

Jahnava devi ki jaya

Sri Gadadhar prabhu ki jaya

This is my report from Radhakund

Your (trying to be humble) servant

ASA - Thank you. Thank you for the austerity of living in Radha-kunda. Thank you for sharing it with us. We are dying to go there.

HpS - Thank you. Maybe not lost on the Blog. Do you read the Kapi Dhvaja? Patraka Das translates it into Spanish. You can get his link for that in the "Peru" link on the www.jayarama.us page.

Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare!

We were posting there that while traveling we meet so many people that we cannot keep up with our mail and only answer Blog Posts labeled, "URGENT". Your report is super. We will be in Argentina at the start of July for three weeks. We are fixing the travel plans now. I think mainly BsAs, but short trip to Mar de Plata. Cordoba???

Hari Bolo!!!! Become more pure daily.

Craig's, Cliffs and Sacrifice

2 months ago by chas d lind in Special Category A

All glories to Srila Prabhupada...please accept my humble obeisances.

This is a copy of a re-write I just did. It was sent to my brother Craig recently after my Fathers passing (more on that later...so much to say). Also sent copies to others in our family for a hopeful Soul nurturing.

After sharing this story, I found out that Craig just divorced his wife of 40 years. Sacrifice in vanity is dangerous, am not sure if he'll even converse with me, he's become as reclusive as my middle brother that he despises. Glad the devotee's are in my life, we don't have time for this.

It's been a week since Dad left, still in mourning. Have been getting more and more stories coming through my heart, words keep coming to me in new symbolism. Japa takes real focus for it seems there are many more things I need to say. Tulsi-Mala save me!!

Ok, here's our Sacrifice;

HpS - Yes, there are so many impressions from our family stored in our heart, Buddhi, that will come out at the time of death unless we deal with them now!

There was a family in a small Mountain Village and one of their children was sick, so they called a Doctor to check what was wrong. The Doctor examined the child and said the fever is from gangrene, we need to remove 2 fingers. The Mother was objecting, the Doctor said,” If we don’t sacrifice the fingers the arm will be next”. Her husband looked at her and they understood.

After this all was fine and the family decided to visit a relative in the city. After an arduous journey they made it to their relatives, even though there were some quarrels going on in the neighborhoods. The family greeted one another with great joy and they all were reminiscing… when noises were heard coming from the outside neighborhood, sounds of explosions, shouting and rioting.

The family all gathered in the hidden cellar and quietly waited. Sounds of footsteps of thugs walking above their heads was heard, they were very still. The Mother was holding her baby in her lap, the child sensed the fear and was attempting to cry. Everyone gazed, the Mother looked back in terror and she saw that another sacrifice had to be made; with tears in her eyes she suffocated her own child.

Hours later a battalion of the Army came and vanquished the invaders and some peace was restored. The family fled, while other parts of the city were still in siege. Returning to their home they had great relief and nurtured one other through what happened

As the weeks went, the battle in the city still was on, the villagers safe in the Mountains continued life warily. Then one night a village guard observed a couple of invaders trying to sneak-in, taking careful aim the guard put an arrow through one, but the other fled to tell his leader. The news spread quickly and the Lord’s garrison immediately came to the village. They told the villagers their town is the only thing keeping the Invaders from entering into the heart of the country, they must be stopped!

The family and the rest of the villagers knew another sacrifice must be made. Taking their eldest and strongest son’s they gave them to the Lord’s army, then despondently departed for higher ground. A tumultuous fight began as the rogue invaders starting entering the village. Arrows and cannonballs were flying everywhere, along with swords clashing and fires raging . The remaining soldiers and villagers finally succeeded, though there was nothing left of the village, the sacrifice had saved the country.

The Mountain family who had lost a baby now had lost their son’s and their village was decimated. The Mother was so distraught she collapsed and died, the Father was in shock losing his wife and decided to see the Lord of the Land. He took his last child and quickly went to the Lord’s castle. Hearing what happened the Lord offered him anything in his kingdom, he knew his sacrifice, whatever the Father needed he would give.

Sobbing the man cried, “I need my wife, I need my children, I need my village, what is left in the World for me?” The Lord sensed his great quandary and sadness. The King knew he needed greater help. Taking the Father and his child he brought them to a grand hall and in there were many citizens, families and even hurt people from his own village. They were all joyously serving one another with food, sustenance and love. The Lord’s Queen came up to the Father and bowed. Astonished the Father asked the Queen, “How did all these people become so happy?”

The Queen smiled at her Husband and then gently placed her hand on the Fathers Heart and said, “They sacrificed the World and regained their Soul”.

All sacrifices bring knowledge, never stop giving, never give up on your Soul.

Thank you for your valuable time Maharaja, All glories to your service!

HpS - Pretty telling. It is in Chanakya Pandita, no? If we save our soul we have done our best to save everyone's soul. That is the nature of the soul.

Sri Vyasa Puja for my first Spiritual Masters

2 months, 1 week ago by candra108_mukhi in Special Category A

Hare Krsna Beloved Gurudeva:

AGTSP, pamho

I was with my co-workers and I started to show them pictures about my family. I got a little emotional, I almost cry, these pictures are really great.

From my father I learn how to be responsible, when I wake up in the middle of the night, my father was almost always reading books, he loved to learn new things, he was very generous, intelligent, but also strict. I remembered when he bought lots of LOB and distributed to his friends from the University, also the programs that he did with your very goodself in Alas Peruanas University. He obtained his PHD at a very old age.

My MOTHER is a real MOTHER she was always taking care of her family she is very sweet and a very CHASTE lady. When my sister was one year old, my father got an scholarship to study a course in seismology in Japan. And my mom was alone and more than one doctor, etc wanted to have an affair with her, but she never cheated on my father. She was really firm and strict with that, and asked for help from her brother.

She is almost dying now, my father is already gone but my heart and intelligence is full from all what they taught me, I feel so so so so proud and bless to be her and his daughter, maybe in other life I may be her mother or father I would like that.

My mother suffers a lot I hope she gets a better destination soon. She will always remain in my heart as well as my dad and U.

Thanks Gurudeva for all your protection. I feel lonely sometimes, but with your support, jokes and association I feel better. AGTSP.

Thanks all this mercy is undeserved.

I am more conscious now about being a good person as U told me on whatssapp try to become an angel now hahaha, well maybe not a perfect angel, but I will do my best. Doing the right thing is always the best option, being a instrument of peace as Saint Francis says

Thanks a lot Gurudeva again, thanks for being my Gurumaharaja. AGTSP

Trying to be your disciple

Candramukhi dd

HPS - Jaya. I think of my parents. That is very good. If nice people think of us after we die it certainly is good for us!! Thank you. Pain is just loud noise, screaming, in the body, nerves. Try to control it for Krsna, and if it is too strong then let Krsna control it. Maybe it seizes the whole body. Body is like a piece of paper. Don't let it consume your whole field of vision!
