Hare Krishna Gurudeva

Please accept my humble obeisances

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada!

I hope you are in good health.

HpS - Ha! Ha! Hare! Our health is just like yours. One disease after another, they get concentrated in old age, the death, then..... ? ... another body or you go to play with the Gopis?

I write you to tell you about my activities during the last few months. I'm trying to take back my regular sadhana, chanting 16 rounds and going to Mangala Aratik. Also, I'm reading the SB every day, as an instruction of p. Gandharva. Once, I dreamt that I was asking you a lot of questions, but you told me: 'Ask to Gandharva'. So, I did that.

HpS - And Mrs. Gandharva Das!!

Recently, my family and I decided to go to ISKCON Chosica once a week and do service there. I'm participating in kirtans and learning about Aindra Prabhu.

HpS - Jaya!!

In the other hand, I'm focus in my university studies. A week ago, I realized that I hadn't told you how I got my scholarship for university. In the beginning, I wanted to study music (piano) in the Conservatory of Lima. I didn't pass the admission exam, so I got frustrated. A year later, I decided to postulate to Catolica University. I past the exam. However, the monthly payment was very high. So, I started to looking for scholarships. I postulated to the Vocación Maestro scholarship, and despite I was very ill in those days and there were many complications with the documents, I finally got the scholarship. Now, I realize that education is my service for Krishna.

HPS - Soooo nice!!!!!

Since the beginning of the year, I have been teaching in a kindergarten. It's the kindergarten of my father's family. Everyday, I learn a lot from the little kids. There is a boy called Alexis, that is the most naughty and restless. However, one day, I taught him yoga asanas and I made him listen to music of the nature, and he loved it. Also, I invited him maha prasadam and he liked a lot. That is one experiance I had in the little school.

The 1st of July, I'm travellying to Bogotá - Colombia for a Latin American Congress of Music Education. It's the best congress of music education I have ever gone. There are a lot of educators from different countries of Latin America, and everybody share their culture and folklore. In fact, it's an intercultural event. Last year, it was made here in Lima, that's why I had the opportunity to participate. But, now, I'm travellying with my mother Tarangaksi to Bogotá. We will stay until July 12th.

Recently, I got in touch with m. Karuna Sakti dd from Mexico and she gave me the opportunity to help with some translations of educational materials for the Crecer Vaisnava program.

That's all for now, Guru Maharaja. I want to write you more frequently and tell you about my activities and plans. Thanks for all your mercy and inspiration.

Trying to serve,

Rukmini Devi Dasi

HpS - You are such a very fortunate person!!!! Use all this for Krsna. Start to think about a strategy for your life eg. Become a writer, musician...
