Hare Krsna dear Gurudeva

Please accept our humble obeisances

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!!


I hope you are in very good health. Unfortunately I couldn't follow you on the morning program but I read the Blog relatively frequently.


Hps/ASA - I hope that it is useful, that NIOS/ASA are one resource amongst others in your connection with Srila Prabhupada.

'he radhe vraja devike! he nanda suno kutah'?


At the moment, Indira Sakti and I are in Lima attending to some family emergencies. We hope to return to the mountains in 10 days, but with the commitment to return to the city more often because we are needed here.


Murari gupta would heal his patients spiritual ills along with their material ills.


The service in the MoE flows calmly. The regional representatives are now complete, having incorporated Aravinda das and Paramatma das.

On the other hand, we are organizing an educational community-program, initially for teachers only, with a view to incorporating other devotees in the future.

We have begun to meet fortnightly to discuss topics of common interest, organize training courses and possible publications, databases, seminars, etc.

The response has been relatively good, although I think more enthusiasm is needed (enthusiasm seems like the desirable jewel in these gray days).


We are also advancing in the organization of the Bhakti Vaibhava course for the Guayaquil temple, in charge of Karuna-nitay Prabhu and Mitravinda devi dasi.

Also, I'm giving Bhagavad-gita classes for the ISKCON Buenos Aires temple.



Indira Sakti and I are fine,

consolidated in a good marriage in which the presence of the Lord is never missed for long. My work as a teacher and researcher in visual and cultural issues has found new opportunities. It is interesting to observe the cultural theory as a distorted reflection of the sastra, sometimes related, sometimes contrary, but as a fragment of an archeology to be reconstructed from the sastric perspective.

In the next post I will send you two article proposals for the Kapi Dhvaja as you requested earlier.


HpS - The work you describe is excellent. It needs to be distributed. Of course, Abhirama Th. Das', NIOS's, Solaris is one good avenue. Do you know others?


Gurumaharaja, do you allow me to learn and perform Homa yajna? A need has arisen and I want to know if you agree with it. Basically it is to deal with domestic situations. My sadhana standard is fine.


If you are a Brahmana, of course, you can do it. You need to learn from an expert how to do it. How are you connected to GBC, Temple President et al?


Always praying for your health and well-being

your little servant

Gandharva das


HpS - Hare Krsna. Hare Rama. Let us look at another letter. It is 10.55PM here in Brihuega, Spain, but only now is the weather cooling so that we can work. During the day it is hot and a siesta is natural.

Thank you.

We hope your next article include nice art!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada


Here we are in New Vrajamandala.


ASA - AGTSP! paoho. Us also. So good to see you yesterday and today.


Our journey began several months ago with the idea of ​​being able to be useful in the documentary project.


Physically, we traveled a week before the flight to Spain by car from our house in Huerta Grande, Cordoba to Buenos Aires, about 800 kilometers away.


For a week we lived with my (Ambarisa) parents and we saw more relatives. It is also a request and necessity of Hari Vamsi to see them regularly.


In those days we met Abhirama thakurji who gave me the equipment lent by Raul Ceballos and the hard disk and microphones bought in New York by Dharu Krsna.


HpS/ASA - We have two $50 lapel mikes in our lost suitcase.


We shared Prasadam pizza, we toured part of Buenos Aires in search of books and then we took him to the airport heading to Lima Peru.


Then on July 11 we took a flight with a 4 hour stopover in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. From there direct to Madrid.


The trip was quite good, Hari slept the entire Bolivia-Madrid section. He was very excited about the whole adventure.


There were quite a few children on both flights.


Upon arrival, we were to meet Adiras Prabhu, but his car broke down on the way to the airport. Then Jambula came to the rescue to take us to New Vrajamandala.


HpS - Material life means to expect problems and then by Krsna's mercy surpass them for His serrvice here.


The devotees received us very well, very attentive in everything. They placed us in the tower, inside the main building.


ASA - Oh, that is where you are! I used to stay there. It is nice. Has 360-degree view? Big cloak room at the entrance. Oh, we are neighbors. We can visit you.


We are still adjusting the schedule, mostly Hari that we can't get him to sleep before 2 am. Also here it is HOT during the day until 10:30 at night. Our bodies changed from the intense cold of Cordoba to the heat, they are adjusting very well.


HpS - This is because we are Yogis, no?


There are many children and Hari has already made friends and that helps with his melancholy. They meet in the afternoon at the river and then play in the temple garden after the Gaura Arati.


We are trying to participate in the Mangala Arati, also Yadunandana Swami has engaged us in giving Srimad Bhagavatam lecture ( canto 5 chapter 4)


The deities of Radha Govinda Candra, Gaura Nitai, Giriraj and Laxmi Nrsimha are very beautiful and the atmosphere here is pleasant in many ways.


We began to plan with Mahajan Prabhu the video of new Vraja mandala that they asked us to arrange for the stay. It would be a video that shows everything that the place can offer and promote it for tourism purposes and something spiritual, not religious.


ASA - "Pilgrims" instead of "Tourists", no? Propaganda can read: Places of Personal Pilgrimage. Where to investigate your full potential and personal demons. . . Pilgrimages and Spiritual Reteats.. . . . The Light and Cooling Breezes for those on the Pilgrim's Progress. ???

https://vedabase.io/en/library/sb/1/13/9/ + Subsequent verse.


https://vedabase.io/en/library/sb/3/1/17/ + subsequent verses. " one is able to realize the Supreme Lord by the process of a pilgrim’s journey".


We are looking at which spaces would be the best for interviews. We think that outdoor spaces are very attractive and it would be good to take advantage of them. Then inside they suggest the library, which is in another building, it is quiet and with good aesthetics. We haven't seen her yet.


There is internet in different places (with different passwords), the classes are broadcast on the New Vrajamandala Facebook. We're also looking into data plans for mobiles.


Thank you very much Guru dev for engage us in service and giving us this adventure.


Yours servants Vrsabhanu nandini and Ambarisa m Das


HpS/ASA - Again, very nice to see you. We are immortal. Krsna may take our material body at any moment. We can act from the strength of the eoul.

Por favor acepte nuestras humildes reverencias

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada

Aquí estamos en Nueva Vrajamandala. 

Nuestro viaje comenzó hace varios meses con la idea de poder ser utiles en el proyecto del documental.

 Físicamente viajamos una semana antes del vuelo a España en automóvil desde nuestra casa en Huerta Grande Cordoba hacia Buenos Aires, unos 800 kilómetros de distancia. Convivimos con mis (Ambarisa) padres y vimos más familiares también es un pedido y necesidad de Hari Vamsi el verlos regularmente. En esos días nos encontramos con Abhirama thakurji quien me entregó los equipos prestados por Raul Ceballos y los discos y micrófonos comprados en New York por Dharu Krsna. Compartimos pizza Prasadam, recorrimos parte de Bs As en busca de libros y luego lo llevamos al aeropuerto rumbo a lima Peru.

Luego el 11 de julio tomamos un vuelo con escala de 4h en Santa Cruz, Bolivia. De ahí directo a Madrid.

El viaje estuvo bastante bien, Hari durmió todo el tramo Bolivia-Madrid. Estaba muy emocionado con toda la aventura.

Había bastantes niños en ambos vuelos. 

Al llegar íbamos a encontrarnos con Adiras Prabhu, pero su auto se rompió camino al aeropuerto. Luego Jambula vino al rescate para llevarnos a Nueva Vrajamandala.

Los devotos nos recibieron muy bien, muy atentos en todo. Nos ubicaron en la torre, dentro del edificio principal.

Estamos aún ajustando el horario, más que nada Hari que no logramos que se duerma antes de la 2 am. Además aquí es de día hasta las las 10:30 de la noche. Nuestros cuerpos cambiaron del frío intenso de Cordoba al calor, se están ajustando muy bien.

Hay muchos niños y Hari ya se hizo amigos y eso ayuda con su melancolía. Se encuentran por la tarde en el río y luego juegan en el jardín del templo después del Gaura Arati. 

Estamos Intentando participar de los Mangala Arati, también Yadunandana Swami nos ha ocupado en dar clases de Srimad Bhagavatam ( canto 5 capítulo 4)

Las deidades de Radha Govinda Candra, Gaura Nitai, Giriraj y Laxmi Nrsimha son muy hermosas y el ambiente aquí es agradable en muchos sentidos.

Comenzamos a planificar con Mahajan Prabhu el vídeo de la finca que nos pidieron como arreglo por la estadía. Sería un vídeo que muestre todo lo que la finca puede ofrecer y promocionarla con fines turísticos y algo espiritual no religioso. 

Estamos viendo qué espacios serían los mejores para las entrevistas. Pensamos que los espacios exteriores son muy atractivos y sería bueno aprovecharlos. Luego dentro nos sugieren la biblioteca, que está en otro edificio, es tranquilo y con buena estética. Aún no la hemos visto.

Hay internet en distintas partes (con diferentes claves), las clases se transmiten en el Facebook de Nueva Vrajamandala. También estamos averiguando sobre planes de datos para teléfonos.

Muchas gracias Gurú dev por Ocuparnos en servicio y regalarnos esta aventura.

Para servirle Vrsabhanu nandini y Ambarisa m Das

Hare Krishna Gurumaharaja

Please accept our Humble Obeisances 

All glories to Srila Prabhupada

All glories to the Sankirtan Movement of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu


Dear Gurumaharaja, 

I hope this report finds you well and our hope is that in our small capacity we can contribute to your vision, and the vision of Srila Prabhupada of developing communities around the care of Earth, Cow, Women, Children, and Brahaminical Culture to find our highest goal in devotional service to Krishna.


ASA - 🐄

The following report is in Name of all the actual members of the project "Nueva Govardhan” a Self Sustainable Ecocultural Community that envisions to expand the principles of Simple Living and Hight Thinking.

Here we share I glimpse of the place in a short YouTube video "Nueva Govardhan” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jr0erkfjTis&t=1s


"Nueva Govardhan” is a 9,000 square meters of land located in the beautiful mountain ranges of Los Nogales and La Sierra Madre Oriental of Montemorelos Nuevo Leon, Just 1hr far from Monterrey City Downtown.


The area is famous all over Mexico for Citrics production, rich in aquifer mantles, and with Warm-to-hot weather trough out the year that allows a good production of grains, fruits, and Vegetables.

We have some animals on the property, and specially Nandita our cow has taught us so much about goodness and dharma, by keeping a fixed schedule to take care of her nicely.


ASA - !


The closeness to the city will allow in the future to develop businesses, our main focus at the moment is the look into circular and sustainable economies, having the protection of earth and cows as a pivot. Currently, 2 of those businesses are running successfully in parallel in the city: The Hare Krishna Restaurant and a Hostal.


Montemorelos has flourished with Seventh Day Adventist communities and businesses and in general a very pious atmosphere. They have also their Universities with a great range of Degrees and Postgrad programs such as Universidad Montemorelos https://www.um.edu.mx/, which also works in collaboration agreements with Loma Linda University from California in the field of health Sciences https://home.llu.edu/. The spiritual background of these communities makes it very favorable to develop good relationships with them as neighbors.


ASA - !!!


Currently, Gadadhar Gosai Das, Ananda Maya Dasi, and their 4 boys are living in the place, developing the grounds of this project, which has been inspired by your instructions. The vision for this project is that more can join the initiative of adopting the beauty of this lifestyle.


The vision for this project is to have leaders developing the main areas, similar to the petals of a lotus. Right now the team is conformed by:

  • Gadhadar Gosai, Ananda Maya, and family: They are focusing on Agriculture, food autonomy, and circular economies from the earth and have as center their Krishna consciousness values.
  • Rocio Lopez Saldaña: Veterinary Doctor, Leader, and Founder of Cultura Perrona S.A de C.V. focusing and Animal wellness and compassion. She leads national programs for animal care.
  • Prof. Gabriel Madrid: A Jungian retired professor from TEC de Monterrey University and owner of hectares of land in the area and interested to develop a space for wellness and care.
  • Govinda Pramodini and Ranchor Krishna Das: Their support to the project is by providing tools to the team to function and work towards defined goals, connecting the project with well-established and accomplished projects, and seeking guidance from Professionals, Universities, Devotees, and of course spiritual guides.


We are hopeful to grow the collaborators in the project and also to understand their purpose and motivations for contributing to ‘Nueva Govardhan; we hoping to reinforce our collaboration with the present ISKCON center in Monterrey and to be acknowledged as a functional project by local GBC. And in the long run, we hope that by the mercy of Srila Prabhupada and by your merciful instructions Gurudeva, the project can educate and become a role model community and thriving hub of the Principles of ‘Simple Living and High Thinking' 


Last and not least we would like to extend our invitation that during your upcoming visit to Mexico in 2023 consider ‘Nueva Govardhan’ as an option for your stay and of course a great opportunity to inspire the upcoming years of the project.


Our humble obeisances always, to you and your service

All glories to Srila Prabhupada


Your servants,

‘Nueva Govardhan’ committee members and your aspiring servants:


Gadhadar Gosai Das

Proyecto: Comunidad Ecocultural Auto Sostenible "Nueva Govardhan” - Monterrey Mexico


Hare Krishna Gurumaharaja

Por favor acepte nuestras humildes reverencias

Todas las glorias a Srila Prabhupada

Todas las glorias al Movimiento de Sankirtan de Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu


Estimado Gurumaharaja,

Espero que este informe lo encuentre bien y nuestra esperanza es que en nuestra pequeña capacidad podamos contribuir a su visión y a la visión de Srila Prabhupada de desarrollar comunidades en torno al cuidado de la Tierra, las Vacas, las Mujeres, los Niños y la Cultura Brahamínica para encontrar nuestra más alta meta en el servicio devocional a Krishna.


El siguiente informe es en nombre de todos los miembros actuales del proyecto "Nueva Govardhan", una comunidad ecocultural autosostenible que ambiciona expandir los principios de vida simple y pensamiento elevado. Aquí compartimos un vistazo del lugar en un breve video de YouTube "Nueva Govardhan” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jr0erkfjTis&t=1s


“Nueva Govardhan” es un tierra de 4 hectáreas ubicado en las hermosas cadenas montañosas de Los Nogales y la Sierra Madre Oriental de Montemorelos Nuevo León, a tan solo 1 hora del centro de la ciudad de Monterrey.

La zona es famosa en todo México por la producción de cítricos, rica en mantos acuíferos y con un clima templado a Cálido durante todo el año que permite una buena producción de granos, frutas y hortalizas. Tenemos algunos animales en la propiedad, y especialmente Nandita, nuestra vaca, nos ha enseñado mucho sobre la bondad y el dharma, manteniendo un horario fijo para cuidarla amablemente.


La cercanía a la ciudad permitirá en el futuro desarrollar negocios, nuestro enfoque principal en este momento es la mirada hacia economías circulares y sustentables, teniendo como eje la protección de la tierra y las vacas. Actualmente 2 de esos negocios están funcionando con éxito en paralelo en la ciudad: El Restaurante Hare Krishna y un Hostal.


Montemorelos ha florecido con las comunidades y empresas adventistas del séptimo día y, en general, con un ambiente muy piadoso. También tienen sus Universidades con una gran oferta de Licenciaturas y Posgrados como la Universidad Montemorelos https://www.um.edu.mx/, que también trabaja en convenios de colaboración con la Universidad de Loma Linda California https://home.llu.edu/ en los campos de Ciencias de la Salud. El trasfondo espiritual de estas comunidades lo hace muy favorable para desarrollar buenas relaciones con ellos como vecinos.


Actualmente, Gadadhar Gosai, Ananda Maya y familia viven en el lugar con sus 4 hijos, desarrollando las bases de este proyecto inspirados en sus instrucciones. La visión de este proyecto es que más puedan unirse a la iniciativa de adoptar la belleza de este estilo de vida.


La visión de este proyecto es tener líderes que desarrollen las áreas principales, similares a los pétalos de un loto. Actualmente el equipo está conformado por:

  • Gadhadar Gosai Das, Ananda Maya Dasi y familia: Se están enfocando en la agricultura, la autonomía alimentaria y las economías circulares de la tierra y teniendo como centro sus valores de conciencia de Krishna.
  • Rocío López Saldaña: ​​Médico Veterinario, Líder y Fundadora de Cultura Perrona S.A de C.V, enfocada al bienestar y compasión Animal. Lidera programas nacionales de cuidado animal.
  • Prof. Gabriel Madrid: Profesor jungiano jubilado del TEC de Monterrey y propietario de hectáreas de terreno en la zona e interesado en desarrollar un espacio de bienestar y cuidado.
  • Govinda Pramodini Dasi y Ranchor Krishna Das: Su contribución al proyecto es brindar herramientas al equipo para ayudarles a funcionar y trabajar hacia objetivos definidos, conectando el proyecto con otros proyectos bien establecidos y buscar orientación de profesionales, universidades, devotos y, por supuesto, guías espirituales. .


Tenemos la esperanza de hacer crecer a los colaboradores del proyecto y también de comprender su propósito y motivaciones para contribuir en 'Nueva Govardhan; esperamos reforzar nuestra colaboración con el actual centro ISKCON en Monterrey y ser reconocido como un proyecto funcional por el GBC local. Y a la larga, esperamos que por la misericordia de Srila Prabhupada y Sus misericordiosas instrucciones Gurudeva, el proyecto pueda educar y convertirse en una comunidad modelo a seguir y un centro próspero de los Principios de 'Vida Simple y Pensamiento Elevado'


Por último y no menos importante, nos gustaría extender nuestra invitación para que durante su próxima visita a México en 2023 considere ‘Nueva Govardhan’ como una opción para su estadía y, por supuesto, una gran oportunidad para inspirar los próximos años del proyecto.


Nuestras humildes reverencias siempre, para usted y su servicio.

Todas las Glorias a Srila Prabhupada


Sus sirvientes,

Miembros del comité 'Nueva Govardhan' y sus aspirantes servidores:

Hare Krishna. I hope you are in good health. I'm doing well, despite so many years with medicine. I think the body is holding up quite well, though I don't know for how long. The Lord is very merciful with us.

Our sadhana is ok. Always trying to be fixed in finishing 16 rounds and reading SB before classes.


Things at school are ok. Due to the transport stoppage, we are having some virtual classes. It is kind of difficult with kids because they get distracted easily.

The tutor who took responsibility for my previous group resigned 2 weeks ago. Parents from my previous group asked the school that I be the tutor. I accepted until new tutor is found. So now I have two groups, first and seventh grade. For 7th grade, I am basically giving some classes and organising. Let see how this new adventure comes.


HpS - Such fortunate kids! Are any of them special kids sent to you like Krsna became the student of Sandipani Muni???


Thanks a lot for your infinite mercy
