Dear Guru Maharaja
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! All glories to you!
I said I would update on NOI Commentary on a biweekly basis. But I think if the updates are monthly, they might be good. They will have something tangible to report.
HpS - Yes, that seems good. Abraham Lincoln said that a man's legs should be long enough to reach the ground.
I have completed transcribing Text 1. Radhika Ramana Prabhu will start editing them next week during his spring break. Once he does the editing on Text 1, we will have a fair idea of how long it takes for him to edit and how soon he will need the transcribed files.
HpS - I hope that it does not take too much of his time and that it is a useful project. Maybe some one else can do a preliminary edit and then he can just do an overview.
I was talking with Caitanya Caritamrita Prabhu about him coming to Dallas for the ratha yatra and he is still not sure about it. We will know about it soon.
HpS - I think I will travel with Hari-lila Das. We are in dialog to determine the best schedule. We need to focus on Sastric Education with the devotees in Houston.
I wanted to request you for a book signing event, like the one in Houston, when you come to Dallas for the ratha yatra. It can be on the ratha yatra day or on the next day's Sunday feast program. I can talk to the sankirtan team here about the scheduling.
We would feel very fortunate if you can stay with us in our house during your visit here. We live at a 5 minute walking distance from the temple or a 2 minute drive.
HpS - Thank you. Can you call Hari-lila Das and work out the details? CCD has his phone number if you do not.
Srinatha Krsna dasa
HpS - Thank you so much. We will see you in just a few days.
