Sannyasa 2

2 months, 2 weeks ago by jayanta in Special Category B

En cuanto al verso S.B. 1.6.13 sobre sannyasa pienso que la aplicación de temas absolutos en el mundo relativo queda reservada a espiritualistas con una conexión limpia con paramatma; sin interferencias de modalidades de la naturaleza.

La perspectiva de Bhaktivedanta Swami es increible, pura, aguda y siempre sorprendente. Es evidente que sannyasa no es para personas comunes y, desde mi perspectiva o la perspectiva de un burro de dos patas, creo que tambien incluye a devotos kanistha y kanistha-Madhyama.

En ISKCON asociamos sannyasa a parivrajakacarya. Pienso que es un cambio muy radical (salvo raras excepciones) pasar de brahmacari, grihastha o vanaprastha a parivrajakacarya. Posiblemente sería bueno antes algo de kuti caka y bahu daka y estar un tiempo (2 años??) pasando desapercibido, sin viajar, sin facebook, sin danda y sin utarilla y desarrollar aún mas la sencillez, la valentía para depender sólo de Dios y no de los demás, la humildad, etc.

HpS - Desde mi experiencia personal eso es realmente lo que sucedió. Naturalmente pasé por el escenario: kuti-caka, bahu-daka, parivrajacacaryary ...

Despues puede ser un sannyasa viajero típico de ISKCON que no se deja impresionar por la puja, fama,tartas de cumpleaños, etc.

Opiniones ? Quejas? Donativos?

Firmado por un burro que sueña con ser devoto.

HpS - Gracias. Base es cantar mejor y mejor rondas, y canta constante durante la dia para cumplir con sus demas responsibilidades. Entonese, estas Ashramas va a ser bien practico, como aplicar. Con 70-anos, mas y mas puedo ver como estas etapas de la vida son bien natural. Todos son enfocado en terner un muerte feliz, no?

Letter to the Jungians

3 months ago by hps in Special Category B

Jaya Sri Krsna!

After 12-weeks of excellent travel, being bounced about in at least 19-different airplanes, we have returned to our little cottage-by-the-road in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We go for 44-minute evening walks with Dr. Ravi each day and are beginning to sort out all the results from the tour.

One thing that stands out very, very prominently was the Congress in Santa Barbara. Thank you Patricia for inviting us. Thank you Beverely and everyone for staging it.

1. We saw Prof. Shonu Shyamdasani in the flesh. For us it was like seeing the Pope for the first time. He even looked at us and, was probably wondering what a Buddhist monk was doing at a Jung Congress.

2. Our understanding of the character of the Jungian community has increased 20-times at least.

3. We derived so much benefit in our personal endeavors, and received so much education, that it was very much worth the extreme investment of time and resources for us. Thank you.

4. We can go on for a long time, but specifically, we think more than ever that there is opportunity and necessity for integral work with our NIOS efforts and your good selves and other Jungian entities such as the Philemon Foundation.

  • Intellectually the first rapport might be to discuss the work of Prof. David Haberman from Indiana University on our 15th century saint, scholar, statesman, Rupa Goswami and Jung's realizations and experiences.
  • If Philemon is planning on turning its very big guns on Jung's visit to India we have excellent contacts at Calcutta University who might be able to help, but they are getting old.
  • As Patricia noted the next Congress on art and the creative imagination might be successfully held in Peru, for example in 2022. Again we are signing a Convenio with San Marcos University right now for the next three years on our "Education and the Sacred" cycle. They look more substantial than the National Museum with whom we were partners for the last three years.
  • Can you all participate in the above mentioned cycle?  Education and the Sacred? We expect grand participation in our Journal, "Solaris", symposium with San Marcos, Jesuits, ICCR from India, et al.
  • Finally, we have heard Jungian Psychologist Beverely Zabriesky mention at least three times that the Introduction to the 'Red Book' by Prof. Shyamdasani is the most excellent resource Jungians have for presenting a summary of Jung's ideas. So, is there any plan to publish it, soon, as a separate book? I, for example, am in contact with a 'large new-age religious cult' of over 1-million members of whom many would love to understand Prof. Jung's experiences and conclusions and then engage in dialog on those from the perspective of the Sanskrit, Vedic, Bhagvata traditions for practical solutions to the world and ones own personal problems.

O.K. I was floored by three daze of the Congress, so I hope this letter is a little bit of revenge in kind. Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon.

H. P. Swami (Prof. H. H. Robinson)

Jayanta das - Sannyasa

Querido Gurudev: Pamho. TgSP y sus seguidores fieles.

Suelo leer el blog de forma regular (algunas cartas) y puedo ver que ya está en el mundo civilizado-informatizado. Por aquí sin grandes cambios; meditando en lo importante y lo dificil que es volverse un devoto autentico. La muerte está acechando y tenemos que entregarnos mas pronto que tarde. "nasty eva, nasty eva, nasty eva."

En cuanto a mi opinión sobre el asram de sannyasa tengo que decirle que (mezclando sadhu- sastra) entiendo que sannyasa es para los brahmanas y tengo alguna duda de que esté recomendado en Kali yuga. Pero debido a que el ACARYA BHAKTIVEDANTA SWAMI lo ha recomendado, aceptamos que en kali yuga se pueda tomar sannyasa (brahmana). El sintoma de que que el vaisnava brahmana está listo para tomar sannyasa puede ser que cuando cante el maha mantra su mente no sobrevuele el estercólero de la complacencia sensual al menos durante seis meses. Otra cualificación subjetiva sería que el asram de sannyasa indefectiblemente lo vuelva a uno mas humilde (si no es así nadie debería aceptar ese asram). Evidentemente me encuentro lejos de esa posición y tenemos que servir desde posiciones sociales mas humildes.

Sin mas y esperando se encuentre bien de ánimo se despide su sirviente (posiblemente torpe)

Jayanta das

HpS - Super perspectiva, gracias! Que piensa de esta verso - https://www.vedabase.com/es/sb/1/6/13 ??? Claro una estandard es esperar hasta los muchachos son madura, y puede la esposa, como ejemplo de Devahuti y Kardama. Otro es tomar votas formal de Vanaprastha y no a Sannyasa. La muerte es Sannyasa si le gustamos o no. Entonces tomando esta ashrama en esta vida es buen preparacion. Que piensa. Buen diagolo para muchos.
